11 Feb 2008, 16:32 by popphenrikI have been listening to a lot of Cat Power lately. I love her early and mid period records. The second cover CD Jukebox and her crooner-album The Greatest leaves me cold.
I picked out my favorite tracks:
Myra Lee (1996)
- Not What You Want
- Ice Water (the best, simply amazing)
What Would the Community Think (1996)
- coat is always on
- Bathysphere (love this song)
- Nude as the News
Moon Pix (1998)
- Cross Bone Style
- Colors and the Kids
- Metal Heart
The Covers Record (2000)
- I Found a Reason (sooo beautiful)
- Naked, If I Want To
You Are Free (2003) (Her best album - lots of good songs on this one!!)
- Maybe Not
- Speak for Me
- i don´t blame you
Pic: A bathysphere. I also want to live in one.
So there it is. 15 songs. If you convert them into mp3@192 you got 95 MB pure gold.
I notice that my taste is a little bit different from most. Rockets and Ice Water is number 48 and 49 in the most played list last 6 month. …

I think her best album is You Are Free-- it has this delicious garage band sound to it.
Her cover album is also worth a listen.
However, if you only listen to one song, make sure it's Speak for Me.
