  • Oh the shame of it all

    6 Oct 2006, 23:04 de thrownsugar

    As I was listening to ABBA this morning, it made me think back to how I got into music and the very first artists I liked.

    My Dad was a total music freak. He still is. For a lot of my childhood, there was constantly battering of ones eardrums with the rather impressive collection of vinyls he had. He once told me he had in excess of 2000.

    He got his first CD player in the late '80s. It was a crusty looking thing when I think about it. It was not until the mid '90s he finally relinquished the vinyl for CD. With this, came the time to sell his old LPs in a garage sale.

    The leftovers were handed to myself. I had an old record player. The first record I got was Greatest Hits. I thrashed it, and there you have it, my first musical crush. I adored Queen for much of the mid '90s. This was closely followed by ABBA. My Dad had all the albums on LP - which I was quite impressed with.

    I was given a walkman for Xmas one year. I thrived on tapes for a while. …

  • musing on charts and rambling coz im procrastinating

    27 Jun 2006, 11:40 de glassandahalf

    I really like the last.fm charts.

    I think the whole thing stems back from when I was a kid, and I would religiously watch rage, especially the top 40. I would study and survey, remembering which tracks were where, compared to the week before. There were things I figured out by myself from doing that that I consider vital for problem solving that I had to do later in life, but always it has been problem solving via curiosity. I would wonder why, when it came in at number 1, the clip for Madonna’s Justify My Love was not shown – I found out. It was censored. Why? A million reasons, but mostly because they don’t reckon kids should see that stuff. I would get what was going on. Watch in amazement as the re-release of Bohemian Rhapsody got to number one for like 12 straight weeks coinciding with the release of Queen’s Greatest Hits cd one xmas. This song was like nothing I had ever heard, and to the 10 year old al, was inexplicably popular… Another summer…

    Live at Sin-é

    This is a brilliant album because it's real. The most production it got, really, was for sound quality and to piece together different songs. It was recorded over two nights in a (literally) hole-in-the-wall coffee shop in New York which has since closed and reopened as a concert venue elsewhere. Buckley goes through his classic repertoir one last time before resuming touring, promoting his studio album Grace. He does covers of Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Leonard Cohen, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, and even interprets his own songs. Jazz, folk, blues, gospel, alternative... he does it all. And you get to hear how he plays with the audience. There is no better way to get to know Jeff Buckley than this album.

    The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan

    This album is beautiful because it's just Bob on his guitar with a harmonica. It's about as basic as it gets, but it's got his most beautiful tracks on it. "Blowin' in the Wind," "A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall," and classics like "Don't Think Twice…
  • Weekly Top 10: 3/5 - 3/12

    This was a bit of a slow week for me, didn't listen to as much as I normally do. Weird fucking mix of bands though, I will say. And, with what I've been downloading, next week will probably be much the same.

    1 Queen (30)
    Okay, seriously. Who doesn't love Queen? Just the right mix of humor, theatricality, experimentation, and outright talent. The Greatest Hits that I have is a little long, but it's got everything you would want on there. I think a lot of people kinda forget about these guys. They're really missing out.

    2 Say Anything (23)
    Yep. They're back... what can I say? Try as I might, I can't seem to overplay them. Usually, I get tired of bands real quick when people play them too much, but there's just too much going on in each song for me to get bored. That said, I don't *think* they'll be back next week. But don't quote me on that.

    2 Rilo Kiley (23)
    My other new pet band. I've been getting into this whole folk/indie/pop scene lately, and these guys are among the best of the bunch. …
  • How I Fell In Love With My Top Ten (Eleven)

    Honorary Mention Queen 341
    Queen gets an honorary mention simply due to the fact that they were in my Top 10 before this past week and they've been one of my favorites for years. I came to love Queen due to my participation in High School Drama. Not drama like "OMGZ, Becky's a whore" but Drama like Theatre.

    Apparently, it's a rule that if you participate in Theatre at my former High School, that you must love Queen. Now, I've listened to Queen since I was a small child, so it wasn't really a problem. I was introduced to them at a young age from hearing Bohemian Rhapsody on the radio and begging my grandfather to get me a CD of theirs. Luckily, he had their Greatest Hits to I quickly became to listen to the band frequently. Once High School hit, it went to a whole other level since everyone I was surrounded by listened to them nonstop. It had something to do with the whole Musicial Theatre thing, but I never sang, so I didn't get that.
