24 Sep 2011, 12:26 de smarshalOK, so I thought I'd put together a bit of a blog talking about my favourite albums. It's not really meant to represent the stuff I listen to most, or a "Best Albums of all time" kind of thing... It's just here to highlight some of the albums that to me have stood the test of time, represent what an "album" should be (track ordering, concept, overall feel)... and that still keep me coming back. Feel free to listen / comment / criticise (only nicely!). It's sort of a work in progress as well.... so bear with me if it's not finished yet !! OH YES.... and it's not in a TOP 10 order either.... although if pushed I might do that later on :) Enjoy!
Torino - Cinerama
So I first started listening to David Gedge's The Wedding Present when they released their first album George Best and the Ukranian Peel Sessions. The thrash guitars, the unreturned desires, the jilted lover... all well and good when you're 18, but I moved on to other things and dropped out of touch with them…
18 Sep 2011, 19:45 de blacklizard63How did you get into 29? Manu Chao
I heard his solo work while I was in Puerto Rico, and I already liked his former band Mano Negra
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? Franz Ferdinand
The Dark of the Matinee, loved the clip, very 80s, great song!
3. What's your favorite lyric by 33? The Human League
You were working as a waittress in a cocktail bar, that much is true...
4. How did you get into 49? Jamie Cullum
His cover of High & Dry, quite fun... Not a huge fan of the rest, still quite nice though. It is #49 of course...
5. How many albums by 13 do you own? Bad Manners
I used to have the first three on vinyl, now I have 7 of them, including the first three, as downloads. Still like them, silly!
6. What is your favorite song by 50? Eurythmics
Love Is a Stranger
7. Is there a song by 39 that makes you sad? Radiohead
LOL. There is hardly any of them that makes you happy, that's what I like. The saddest I think is No Surprises
8. What is your favorite song by 15? Duran Duran

2 Abr 2011, 23:59 de dosy-tart-x89The finality of my degree is starting to sink in. What better way to avoid revision, than to go out into London, dance the night away, have drunk revision in the sunshine the next day, and end your Friday with a few drinks for a friends leaving party! Oh, I am going to miss the student life. Maybe I will just never leave...
Saturday evening is here. I have watched Grey's Anatomy - the musical episode. Safe to say I did not stop crying. I have also spent a good 4 hours completely reliving music. The music I like at least. The Cranberries, The Beautiful South, The Smiths, Temper Trap,Fleet Foxes, Mumford & Sons...I could go on for a decade.
But I won't. So, a fantastic weekend, with Sunday nearly here, and me being fully prepared with a fantastic Spotify playlist! Got some Vitamin String Quartet there too - definitely worth checking out.
Revision - check.
Alcohol craving settled - check.
Holiday excitement - CHECK
Positive outlook for the coming week - BIG CHECK.
