yes but, in Sigur Ros case, they sing in either Icelandic or Hopelandic and I think (sorry if I'm wrong) oneesmotryet doesn't understand Icelandic and no one can't understand Hopelandic, it's only gibberish

When I need it it's usually 'cause I'm down with lady troubles. The best part about that, though, is that with my most recent installment (read: this morning), the lady liked all the same music as I do. It was only then that I realized what an awesome help country music can be. "Playin' Possum" by Alan Jackson, anyone?

Just playing possum and laying low
I got a hundred watts of hurtin' coming through the speakers of my stereo
Don't wanna see nobody, nowhere I want to go
Just playing possum and laying low


For the record, I've been known to listen to Sigur Rós while getting 4 immunizations (including the lovely tetanus jab) in one sitting. You'd be surprised how often that's had to happen, and as a result I know all the words to "Hoppípolla" -perfectly-

And in Mogwai's case, most of the songs with words are shit.

I like the Mogwai songs with words.  "cody", "Take Me Somewhere Nice", and "Acid Food" are some of my favorites of theirs.

After I got my heart stomped on real good, I listened to The Velocity of Saul at the Time of his Conversion (an Okkervil River song, but from Down the River of Golden Dreams, which came before Black Sheep Boy, and is better) seventy-two times in a row. That is the exact opposite of making your emotions go away for a little bit-it seems that that song in particular always amplifies whatever emotion I'm already feeling.

If I do want emotional anaesthetic music, I will usually throw on the opposite emotion music, and then it balances out. If I'm all wahsadwah I will listen to All Girl Summer Fun Band or ZibraZibra or Man Man or something like that.

While Black Sheep Boy does indeed rule, and is admittedly probably a better album as a whole (in cohesiveness, creating a mood, etc), I just still prefer to listen to Down the River, because I generally like the songs on it best- specifically the one I mentioned and The War Criminal Rises and Speaks. And... all the rest of them too.

I love all the Okkervil love.  I remember a time when entire months could go by with these fellows meriting nary a mention.

If the topic of music literally acting as an anesthetic interests you then I strongly recommend Musicophilia by Oliver Sacks. Learn about people who got hit by lightning or had strokes and came down with obsessive intersts in classical music or top 40s pop.  This may be the explanation for the Rihanna's Umbrella phenomenon I've been looking for.
