TVD's Daily Wax

Once and future timelessness:

Arnold - Fishsounds (Mp3)
The Clientele - (I Can't Seem To) Make You Mine (Mp3)
Elbow - The Everthere (Mp3)
Crowded House - Walking On The Spot (Mp3)
Eric Matthews - No Gnashing Teeth (Mp3)'d I do? What/who would you add?

The more I think about the concept of timelessness in music the less certain I am that it exists. Perhaps, some classical works come closest? But, how do you ever really take the context out of anything, let alone the creation and consumption of music?
Anyway, I think you've done a great job of making us think this week and providing some very beautiful sounding records to listen to. I particularly enjoyed the Arnold tune and Harry Nilsson stuff.
In this vein of sweet sounding songs that might be able to transcend the era they were recorded, I'd add (among many others):

Twilight by The Band
Honeydrippers version of Sea of Love
The Flying Burrito Brothers cover of Wild Horses
Many Rivers to Cross by Jimmy Cliff

Thanks Noah. I think that's the conclusion I've drawn too - context is inescapable, really.
