mirasol asked for "Spectrum" and this one was a breeze. I tried to put a sample of most genres of music in my collection, but still have it be listenable. Hee!

1. Julius, Phish. Jam Bands!! Hoist is their best album. Pick it up if you don't have it.
2. Get Up (Sex Machine), James Brown. Hardest working man. Which is why he is always glistening.
3. Never There, Cake. CAKE!! Good stuff on all of their albums.
4. Piano Concerto No. 3 in D Mino, Opus 30, Rachmaninoff. This is the complete recording, and by a Van Cliburn winner, so it's well played.
5. Daddy Could Swear, I Declare, Gladys Knight and The Pips. I cannot stress how much I love Gladys. This song makes me think of my Papa. Quiet until they are pissed, then look out.
6. Uncle John's Band, Grateful Dead. I'm bouncing right now, just thinking about grooving in my Mother Hubbard with a veggie burrito... Good times. Still hate hacky sack, tho.
7. No Rain, Blind Melon. I heart the bumblebee girl. This song kicks ass to sing to on a sunny day. You know it, I know it.
8. Goodbye Seventies, Yaz. Oh. My. God. I want to rollerskate everytime I hear this. And spy on the 9th graders making out. Just like when I was a pre-teen. Had my own speed skates and everything...
9. Frou Frou Foxes in Midsummer Fires, Cocteau Twins. I love them. You know it, I know it. :-)
10. Falling, Angelo Badalamenti. Not jazzy, but ethereal soundtrack-y with a hint of his jazz stuff.
11. Fruta Fresca, Carlos Vives. I know I used this on another album, but it has to be my most favorite Latin-flavor shake your booty with a handsome, dark-haired man. Num.
12. Shadrach, Beastie Boys. 3 jews from MIT make it to the big leagues in the world of rap. That alone makes me love them, if not for "we're three emcees and we're on the go, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednigo." Bible story rap!! Without the religion crap! Wheee!
13. Golden Lights, The Smiths. The happiest sad song Morrissey ever did. And I know mirasol loves her gay men, just like me.
14. Goodbye Earl, Dixie Chicks. Not many country songs am I in to (that aren't old school, that is) but I love the Dixie Chicks. The lead singer is a trained jazz singer from Berkley! Love it.
15. The Beautiful People, Marilyn Manson. I remember sitting completely still when this video came out. Trent Resnor called: he wants his concept back! Still is a kick booty song.
16. Beautiful, Snoop Dogg. I love this song. I love Snoop. I love Pharrell. Obrigato Brazil! I want to be the dark haired woman from the video. SHe makes me hurt, she's so purdy.

I tried to hit all of the major labels, with the exception of easy listening. Some of these songs are long, so I couldn't get anymore on this disc. I think there was 17 seconds left over, or something ridiculus like that. Bah. This may have needed to be 2 discs, but I'm getting weary...

one more later today!

I'll say it again: CAKE, bass lines like no others.

Dude. Cake obviously studied at the feet of Bootsie Collins and Flea. They all rock.

so THAT'S why I like that first album. Check.

Crawford is doing fine. He ventured out on his wonky legs last night but still has to be held up over the cat box. Which is fun. And clean. He got re-bandaged yesterday and you can see his bones on his left leg. ;__; But: the doc said he is doing fine and will OUTLIVE US ALL. (He is Teflon Kitty now.)

How YOU doon?

This is so wonderful - it's like Christmas! Who-hoo!

It's perfect - I've only got my basic little CD player left unpacked at the moment, which is going into work with me. I love to listen to a different range of music, rather than the same kind of songs. Fan-bloody-tastic. And I can't wait!

It arrived today! Immediately put it in my work PC, on shuffle. First song - Falling. You know when you hear a song that makes you shiver? Listened to the whole CD 3 times and it's still giving me goose-pimples. Starts at the bottom of my spine and works its way slowly up, and blows my mind every time.

It's absolute perfection - and that's just one song! Gotta admit I've never heard Cake. Really, really like this song - gonna check the rest of their stuff out.

Yaz - love, love, love Alf. Wondered though - over here they were called Yazoo... (Okay, can't forget Vince Clarke I like Erasure too, my fav one of theirs is A Little Respect.)

Damn, gotta go back to work, gotta sign off now. Just got to say I love you for doing this, I really mean that.

You're not getting the bog-standard Xmas card. No, you're getting a hand-made creation.

I'm so glad it finally made it. And Yazoo? For real? No wonder they changed the name here. Ha! Because "Yaz" is more macho and beer swilling. Hee hee! I LOVE cake. All of their CDs are fun and funky if you get desperate for new music.

*hugs you back*

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
