11 Sep 2009, 00:21 by rwitteMid '70s. I am a small teenager. I am hiding a transistor radio under the bedclothes to listen to Little Nicky Horne on Capital radio. Psycho Killer by Talking Heads Riders on the Storm Bad Company
Flash forward. Top of the Pops Whole Lotta Love. I am bewildered by Once in a Lifetime. And spinoff

And then the films: Stop Making Sense has a big suit and Swamp. While the surreal True Stories featured Wild Wild Life
Finally the whole story climaxes with Little Creatures And She Was.
8 Nov 2008, 03:10 by dturgentbyrneIt's a mindless "YR TOP " survey to keep me amused for a few minutes!
1. How did you get into 30? (The Onion)
I find the weekly publication somewhat amusing, so I began listening to the podcast.
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? (John Vanderslice)
Time Travel Is Lonely
3. What's your favorite lyric by 7? (Ok City Ok)
Either "She gets mad and makes that Kabuki face," or "Navigating by parallel lines that intersect in incoherent lives." It depends on my mood.
4. What is your favorite album by 9? (Modest Mouse)
The Lonesome Crowded West.
5. How many albums do you own by number 13? (Spacehog)
The three officially released ones, plus one promo of their second album (it's different than the officially released one), and another promo EP, plus various singles.

7. Is there a song by 12 that makes you sad? (Toadies)
Not really. Maybe Away, kinda.

2 Jul 2008, 06:02 by VegeduckOver the course of the past several months, i've decided that Talking Heads has to be my favorite band. The band is so quirky, so diverse, and yet so technically solid that it's hard to fully comprehend the impact they've had on music as a whole.
So, as i've done with some of my favorite bands, i've compiled what I feel is my definitive top fifty songs list for them. A couple of my choices might be considered odd by other Heads aficionados, particularly the rather low (in most people's opinions) placing of "This Must Be the Place" and several of my entries into the top ten. Unless otherwise noted, the version of the song on my list is from the original album the song appeared on. But alas, Here we go!
50. Slippery People
49. I Wish You Wouldn't Say That
48. Radio Head
47. Love for Sale
45. With Our Love
42. Memories Can't Wait
41. Stay Hungry
40. The Girls Want to Be With the Girls
39. Wild Wild Life

13 Nov 2007, 15:51 by dturgentbyrneI get made fun of for liking Blue October. I don't care, though. I like a lot of music, and they are one of the bands I like. And "Overweight" is one of the best songs, ever.
A month ago, I heard they were having a concert in town on November 17th. I was bummed, because I don't have spending money right now (my husband and I just moved and are still paying on the apartment deposits and disconnect/reconnect fees for all of our utilities), so I wouldn't be able to go.
Well. Last week I got a call from 101X, the local "rock" station, saying that my "U-mix" had been picked. The "U-mix" is something they've been advertising: You go on their site, pick five songs you'd like to hear together on the radio, and if they deem your mix cool enough they'll call you and you get to introduce the songs, and probably win something. I won Blue October tickets, along with "meet and greet" passes!

19 Jun 2006, 21:54 by drcheOne of the things that I've noticed over recent months is how often I seem to be revisiting older artists that I've always vaguely liked and listenening to them more closely. A prime example of this is Talking Heads.
Like pretty much everyone my age the first Talking Heads song I heard was Once in a Lifetime, followed by a gap until Road to Nowhere. There was a brief period where And She Was and Wild Wild Life kept the interest going, but apart from watching the Stop Making Sense film things just seemed to drop off.
Recently however I decided to go back and listen to some of their back catalogue, and try a couple of the albums that I didn't really know, Remain in Light, and Speaking in Tongues. And boy are they good! Whilst some of the tracks were familiar from Stop making sense, others such as Listening Wind and The Overload really blew me away and provided a new angle from which to view the band.
I'm really looking forward to digging out the rest of their back catalogue...
16 May 2006, 01:17 by IanARI've been getting in touch with my inner party girl ...
... by having a listen to scarebear's "I Am A Party Girl Here Is My Soundtrack" tag http://static.last.fm/matt/tinyradio.gif
How's it sound? Well its a pure track tag of over 120 streamable tracks, so you can be sure that each track's been handpicked, to suit scarebear's party persona. The selections eclectic and all danceable. Picture an excellent DJ at a WASP wedding reception, with an extensive record collection on hand, trying to make everyone very happy, at least, some of the time, but not caring too much about keeping all of the people vaguely happy all of the time.
I made more discoveries than skips and when I found my inner party girl shaking her tushie, I re-tagged, creating my own little "I Am A Party Girl Here Is My Soundtrack" station http://static.last.fm/matt/tinyradio.gifRed AlertRaptureSong 2ConnectionFeel Good Inc. …
