8 Jul 2011, 07:12 by irisvanhoornAs a kind of summary of my listening and reviewing activities of the past weeks, I would like to make a ranking list of the studio albums of Alanis Morissette. Some of the songs and albums are long time favourites, while others are just recently discovered. This list just shows how I think about them today, and may change over time.
1. Supposed Former Infatuation Junkie (1998)
It was hard to make a choice between this album and the number 2, because I love them both so much. At the moment, this album wins. It is a dark and experimental album with very great epic lyrics.
Best tracks: Thank U, That I Would Be Good, The Couch, I Was Hoping, So Pure, Joining You
2. Jagged Little Pill (1995)
Her very strong international debut album, of which millions of copies were sold over the past 15 years. A pure and original album about very personal feelings and thoughts. …

27 Feb 2009, 22:38 by aquadoniaThis series, called Uncharted, is basically a listing of my Non-MP3 listening habits (and there fore uncharted by Last FM). For more info, read the beginning of this post here.
*NOTE* As much as I would love to, there is no possible way for me to keep track of other online listening uncharted by Last.FM (YouTube, MySpace and the like). I'd go insane trying.
Again, it's been a while since I've added new installments of Uncharted. I've been doing well with this project, I've just been forgetting to update my journal with it.
I've got LOTS to catch up on, so here it goes the second of a few new entries.

9 Feb 2009, 18:58 by FatherLuciferLast night, February 7th, was my first Alanis Morissette concert. The gig was the 10th of a series of 11 of the Brazilian leg of her Flavors Of Entanglement Tour, probably one of the longest international tours ever in our country. I got there at 5 a.m. and a group of another 12 people from our city, Curitiba (the show was to take place in Florianópolis, the capital of a neighbour State to the south). Luckily our efforts of travelling during the night paid off as we were the first ones to get to the venue. After spending a day being attacked by mosquitoes, rain and the tropical sun, the gates were open at 10 p.m.
Our group got the best places in the crowd, meaning we all were right in front of the centre of the stage and everybody else was either on our sides or behind us. However, the initial excitement of getting there first soon turned into boredom, physical pain and discomfort, 'cause we had to stand for around 3 and a half hours 'til the beginning of the concert. …

25 Jan 2009, 23:07 by pedronetoSábado 24 Jan – Alanis Morissette - SIARÁ HALL
Alanis Morissette concert in Fortaleza was the third Brazilian date of her South American Tour. It was one of the first international mainstream rock concerts in the city, so the venue was quite crowded. A couple of hours late, the craziness began. She was accompanied by a great five piece band. Oh God, she was on fire! And, believe me, so was the crowd. Maybe there were too many people singing along TOO loud every song. I couldn't even hear her harmonica! Not to mention the other details of the apparently great arrangements. Unfortunately, that's the Brazilian way of watching a concert. But she loved it so much.
The setlist was fine. Despite the absence of Under Rug Swept tracks, I had some good surprises, like The Couch, Uninvited, Sympathetic Character and Perfect. The new songs were great, especially Moratorium. You Oughta Know isn’t one of my favorites, but it sounded orgasmic live. …

*What is your favourite lyric that 5 has sung?
*How many times have you seen 4 live?
OMG I have just realized that I have actually never ever seen her live. That makes me sad.
25 Oct 2007, 17:04 by websheldonSat at work feeling a bit blue and thinking about how my musical taste is pretty dominated by female singers. I'm usually thinking that I should try and listen to more male vocalists (I've been doing quite well this year - Elliott Smith, Ray LaMontagne, Mumm-Ra, Arctic Monkeys, Andrew Birdetc.) So I thought instead of thinking like this, today I will embrace my love of female singers and make a compilation for my iTunes.
There were 3 songs that didn't make it (I like my compilations to have 20 songs because then they can usually fit on a CD!)
Death Of Samantha - Yoko Ono
Bulimic Beats - Catatonia
Riverwide - Sheryl Crow
The playlist is quite depressing really, but it picks up towards the end - "Wise Up" is recognising there's a problem and realising you need to change to sort it,
"Deep Water" is along a similar vein 'we must demand more not from each other, but more from ourselves' and then Good To Yourself is one of my favourite feel good songs.
A Blessing or a Curse
28 Jul 2007, 07:26 by mona_mothma1. What are you listening to right now?
Princes of the Universe - Queen
2. What song makes you sad?
At the moment Borderline - Chris de Burgh
3. What is the most annoying song in the world?
Leomon Tree - Fool's Garden. That song was annoying the first time I heard it, and still is. Uninspired music, plainly stupid lyrics.
4. Your all time favorite band?
The Beatles. Period. But they’re not around any more.
So, favourite band that are still doing something: R.E.M.
5. Your newly discovered band is?
Two actually. The Panic Channel
The Panic Channel and Kaizers Orchestra.
6. Best female voice?
Uh, oh, difficult. Hm. SSam Brown probably.
7. Best male voice?
Freddie Mercury. Definitiely.
8. Music type you find yourself listening to most?
I mostly like the stuff you can’t really categorise. But I’d say indie rock, mostly.
9. What do you listen to, to hype you up?
Somethng I can sing along to aloud. Like Garbage or Alanis Morissette. Mustang Sally by The Commitments is always good.
