Discussion in 'Odds & Ends' started by aphex, Aug 21, 2009.
for me it is:
Boards of Canada-----music has the right to children
The Joshua Tree
Appetite for Destruction
Album. Like a photo album? What's an album?
Kidding. Most folks just download singles from iTunes. Remember 45s and cassingles. Mix tapes off the radio with the DJ's voice over the intro and the out-tro.
Sgt. Pepper's, Revolver,
Black and Blue, December's Children,
Led Zeppelin IV,
The Cult: love,
Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby,
Meat Is Murder by the Smiths,
Radiohead's The Bends,
Pearl Jam 10,
In Utero and Nevermind by Nirvana,
Smashing Pumpkins' Gish and Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, Backstreet Boys All-Right!, (kidding)
Flight of the Conchords Season 1 soundtrack,
the second Ben Harper cd,
soundtrack to Pulp Fiction.
But if I had to list one based on volume/frequency, it would be The Joshua Tree, b/c I had it in the walkman back in college, and also a housemate would blast it every morning......and our coach used to play it in the van a lot on the way home from matches.
Maybe "Axis: Bold as love" by Jimi Hendrix
It could be Metallica Kill em All or Guns & Roses Use your Illusion II ... on cassettes. Now that I am thinking U2's October and The Joshua Tree could be too... but No, I clearly remember being laying on the floor with my headphones and reading Kill em All lyrics over and over again, actually that is how I learned English on the first place.
we have very similar tastes sbhc
although i hate boner and his band...
Cool thread aphex, that would probably be Thriller by MJ. R.I.P
have you decided yet? you're leaving for sure?
No i havent...its really hard,such a big step, i mean im 29 but still...:-?
Number Of The Beast - Iron Maiden
I can see a lot of love for U2 here. At exactly this time last week I was watching them live in London and man that gig made me pull out The Joshua Tree and Achtung Baby which are both favourites. In fact when we got married we played "One" during the signing of the register.
Back to the topic - for me it's one of four:
Oasis - Definitely Maybe
Radiohead - OK Computer
Stone Roses - Stone Roses
Stone Roses - Second Coming
Dark Side of the Moon
no kidding... great record...
actually i like better Geogaddi but still!
mine, would be a toss up between:
Air : Moon Safari
Up Bustle & Out : Rebel Radio 1 & 2
Stereolab : Emperor Tomato Ketchup
Amon Tobin : Supermodified
U2: War, Joshua Tree
Pink Floyd: Dark Side of the Moon
Peter Frampton: Frampton Comes Alive
X&Y and Viva la Vida by Coldplay
All that you Can't leave behind by U2
Oasis - Definitely Maybe
Oasis - (What's The Story) Morning Glory
My Bloody Valentine - Loveless/Isn't Anything
Stone Roses - Stone Roses/Second Coming
Radiohead - Kid A
Ride - Nowhere
Neutral Milk Hotel - In The Aeroplane Over The Sea
Slowdive - Soulvaki
Chemical Brothers - Dig Your Own Hole
Metallica - Justice For All
Manic Street Preachers - The Holy Bible
David Bowie - Station to Station
Pokemon - 2.B.A. Master
Oasis - Definitely Maybe
Oasis - (What's the Story) Morning Glory
Foo Fighters - The Colour and the Shape
Green Day - Dookie
Snoop Dogg - Doggystyle
HEy guys, yeah, I love both Stone Roses and the early Oasis as well. And also Foo Fighters.
I'm going to have to check out this Boards of Canada band now. Thanks.
You've got to check out the send up called 'Bowie" by Flight of the Conchords. It's spot on and also hysterical.
Two that come to mind: "Jesus Christ Superstar" movie soundtrack, and "The Doors" (first album).
Do they smoke grass up in space Bowie? Or do they smoke astroturf?? Very philosophical.
Dark side of the moon
Brothers in arms
wow moon safari...that takes me back to my college years in london....
one of my most listened to albums also...
and i adore stereolab (although i never got that much into them)
we have very similar tastes gorecki....any suggestions about something new...i can't seem to find any decent electronic music nowadays....
the last decent electronic album i listened to was the crystal castles one...(u know them?)
Simon and Garfunkel - Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme
Which universe do you folkses live in ?
For me it could be The Emperor Concerto by Beethoven. In the old days it could have been Echoes (Meddle - PF).
In the last one year it could be some of the works of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan (religious Qawallis) and the classical works of another Pakistani artist Ustad Fateh Ali Khan.
Which galaxy do us folkses live in?
LOL! Set phasers on 'FUNKAY".
Does the cold out in space make your nipples pointy Breaker? Do you use your nipples as telescopic antennae....to transmit date back to earth? I bet you do, you freaky old bas7ard, youuuu.
Do you have one really freaky sequin space suit, man?
Or do you have several ch-changes?
Orbitting Pluto.....pulled in by it's groovitational pull....I'm jamming out with my Mick Jaggernauts.....and they think it's pretty cool, mannn.
[I especially like the outtro]
This album's been in my car on maximum rotation for about 7 months straight.
not much for us going on now... it's no loger 1999 sadly....
but i am currently going on about ecletic choices like Fujiya & Myagi, Vikter Duplaix, Cocorosie, Tinariwen, Rokia Traore, Thievery's latest (Radio Retaliation - not bad), Tosca's "no Hassle" and the last two records by Nightmares on wax, Jazzanova's "all of the things" and the EP "Belle et Fou"... so you see, not just listening to IDM, but also digging on some world music and some minimalist "R&B ish" dowtempo like Vikter and the jazzanova gang...
plus i can seriously advise you dusting old stuff like dj Shadow's debut record, Fila Brazillia and Funky POrcini, Up Buslte and Out's "Blow 'em up"... i am doing that and re-descovering new found pleasures with such records... do it! you will thank me later!
ps: does your name come from mr Richard D. James?
Man, I'm ten yrs older than you hipsters.
Happiness is eggshaped. Kind of a sad, oblique Stone Roses reference.
well... we just wanna be adored and wear fools gold...
SBHC: i am from your generation, i was becoming adolescent when the Stone Roses bursted into scene... i have a first edition of their debut record..
i just choose to move on!
but you just remembered me of a record i have not listened in a few years...
time to dust up some more...
Boston (on 8-track actually)
Led Zeppelin IV
Best of Britney Spears
It's awesome and I'm guessing you've seen the show and the Bowie episode which was equally hilarious.
Wow, I'm surprised none of us old-timers here picked:
Electric Ladyland/Jimi Hendrix.
Sticky Fingers, or Exile on Main Street/The Stones.
Rubber Soul/The Beatles.
Led Zeppelin I.
And no old-timer picked anything from Dylan, Springsteen, or the Who?
Remember what Rolling Stone magazine picked as the #1 album of all-time from the critics years ago? London Calling, by the Clash....
Most nine inch nails,
Smashing pumpkins meloncolie
Pink floyd dark side of moon.
Nirvana in utero
Gorillaz demon days
Radiohead ok comp and hail thief
Led zep physical graffiti & song remains same
Dr dre 2001
Doves lost souls
Best of bowie
Janes addiction strays
Do you like the ruttles?
Violator by Depeche Mode
Every single song in that album is quality. Yeah, it's a bit overrated, but that album never fails to excite and entertain. Depeche Mode was before my time, so I missed out on their best concerts.
Meteora from Linkin Park .
Collective Soul's new album Rabbit is going to be one for me soon I hope.
The Doors - The Doors
The Cure - Wish
Bob Marley - Legend
Couldn't pick one.
Michael Jackson's Dangerous or Queen's Innuendo. A toss up, really.
London Calling- The Clash
I Am The Movie- Motion City Soundtrack
Enema of the State- Blink 182
Ocean Eyes- Owl City
