Find Me On:
OHMIGOD I WANT THIS BOX SET SO BADLY!!!
Ok, now that I’ve gotten that out of the way…
I could pick any number of songs, but I always go back to “To The End”, as good of a ballad as any that came out of the Britpop era…
“Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes” for sure…
“Radio Radio” Elvis Costello
Lord of the Rings, although I would say Game of Thrones wins, but it’s a series, not a movie.
Glass Houses, the peak of pop-era Billy Joel.
Shine On You Crazy Diamond is, by far, the band’s best work.
“Baby baby baby…light my way…”
Ultraviolet (Light My Way).
Sunflower. Simply gorgeous…
Revolver, with Rubber Soul VERY close behind.
I would probably have to take the collected “Love Is Hell” as my fave, with “Heartbreaker” close behind.
I’ll go old school…Piper at the Gates. I like the Syd stuff best…and I know it’s blasphemous.
I had seen Nirvana on the “Bleach” tour and I was excited to hear the new record. I bought it the day it came out, and blasted it in the afternoon, after school. I dozed off during “Something In The Way” and was suddenly jarred awake by the blast of “Endless Nameless” after the length silence. My copy of the record did not list it as a track on the record.
I bought an advance copy of American Music Club’s “Everclear” that same day (It wasn’t officially out for a couple more weeks) and I WORE THOSE RECORDS OUT in September and October of 1991.
“Master of Puppets”
A close second is “Creeping Death”
“Kissing a Fool”
The new East River Pipe, the new full-length from Telekinesis!, and the debut from Apex Manor (former lead singer of the late, great The Broken West) are all due out (on Merge) in February. I’m very excited about all three!
The US release from the Broken Records is out in January, as is the Radio Dept. singles collection.
“Daylight” for me.
