Whosampled.com: Thanks to this site I no longer have to be plagued by questions like "What is that second sample in Kool Moe Dee's 'I Go to Work'?" And having the original track alongside the cuts that sampled it has led me down the Web rabbit hole many a time.

Raymond Scott's Soothing Sounds for Baby series: Scott did more than make Bugs Bunny classy; he also pioneered experimental electronic music in the form of three odd, hypnotic records intended to put your kids to sleep. If these had come out 15 years earlier, you'd wonder if Brian Eno's parents had taken advantage of them.

Ringo Deathstarr's "So High": This shoegaze-y track could've been birthed in the sunny alternative summer of 1992; at an economical 2:17 run time and with fuzzy, jangling guitars and boy-girl vocals, it's a little slice of pure pop perfection for any era. I play it on repeat and know that warmer weather is coming.
