Music To My Ears

My friends know I love them when I give them song recommendations. (And that I really, truly adore them if I fork over a custom CD, a cousin to the mixed tape once swapped by middle school puppy lovers back in the day.) Otherwise, I'm quite selfish when it comes to my music.
 
Surprise! I'm feeling generous. So, here's a short list of what I'm loving these last few days:
 
"Wolves" - Josh Ritter
"I Hear The Bells" - Mike Doughty
"Fuck the Pain Away" - Peaches
"Chinese Translation" - M. Ward
"Le Disco" - Shiny Toy Guns
"Is It Any Wonder" - Keane
"How 'Bout You" - Yonder Mountain String Band
"My Dick" - Mickey Avalon
"Level On The Inside" - Dovetail Joint
"I Turn My Camera On" - Spoon
"How Soon Is Now" - The Smiths
 
Check 'em out. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

9-Letter Riddle

There is a common English word that is nine letters long. Each time you remove a letter from it, it still remains an English word ~ from nine letters right down to a single letter.

What is the original word, and what are the words it becomes as you remove letters one at a time?
