What are you listening to? (Part 3)


#141

I'm listening to a BBC Radio 4 documentary about songs from Vietnam in the 1960s. Interesting.

Can't top that for general weirdness, Yetiman. But I've been playing Everything But the Girl's acoustic sessions. Ancient stuff, but goddamn, Tracey Thorn's voice still makes my eyes hot.

All at once? That must sound pretty cacaphonic.


#145

That jp has got some good Long Players.


#146

If I ever got a Springsteen CD, that would be it.

It's too bad the Flaming Lips never released Zaireeka on 8-track. You know the concept - the album comes as 4 separate CDs that are supposed to be played on 4 separate stereos in synch. I had the idea to play a copy each on vinyl, cassette, CD, and 8[track. And then cue up The Wizard of Oz.

On topic: Eugene Edwards, My Favorite Revolution - one of the '00's better Mid-Western power-pop long-players. Holds up favorably in comparison to classic Byrds or Badfinger.

Crikey! How did I forget the Gun Club?

Thanks for jolting that one back.

One time when the National Lampoon Radio Show said they were going to get the Beatles together again, I fell for it. Stupid kid. They had promos for it all week and then I tuned in to hear it all they did was play one song from each of the Beatles all at once. They called it 'Jumble'.

Hehehe John Cage would have loved it.


#151

Willie Dixon's, erm I mean Led Zeppelin's, erm I mean Willie Dixon's, I mean Led Zeppelin's cover of Willie Dixon's song about how this woman needs love, a whole lotta love.

For all his years in the biz, you'd figure that a guy like Jimmy Page would have figured out how to write his own songs without any selective "borrowings". Great tune nonetheless....

Right now I'm listening to a bunch of pagan idolators clanging cymbols, screeching and letting off fireworks outside my window.


#153

Me too. They are listening to that new 'hiphop music' on a car stereo, though.


#154

:fume:


#155

Jerry Lewis's greatest song and the greatest country & western song title (cause he went country after he gave up the devil's rock'n'roll):

"What Made Milwaukee Famous (Has Made a Loser Out of Me)"

Too bad Miltownkid ain't around no more.


#156

What made Milwaukee famous?


#157

Laverne and Shirley! Now they weren't bitter!! Must have been the Sclitz beer! :laughing:


#158

Blur's Parklife

But then I realized, "Why should I be listening to this shit when I could be listening to the Kinks?"

So instead of mid-'90s Brit-pop, I think I'll continue to listen to the Kinks. Much better better than Pulp-Blur-Oasis-whoever is on the charts in London these days. As soon as one of these guys writes a "Waterloo Sunset" or "David Watts" gimme ring, guys.


#159

Aren't The Violent Femmes from Milwaukee?
