3 Jul 2009, 18:08 by hablamosnicoSince I never write anything really music related (or at all) here, I decided I would. So I'm looking at my top 15 artists according to total listens on my profile page. Let's go. (And I may actually be indecisive or pick multiple for some artists, heh.)
1. Warren Zevon - This is a hard one. But up top are definitely Desperados Under The Eaves, Jeannie Needs a Shooter, Raspberry Beret (better than the original), Poor Poor Pitiful Me, and I'll Sleep When I'm Dead, to name just a few—I like all his stuff! (You wonder why he's my top played?)
2. They Might Be Giants - Another hard one (there will be a lot of these). I'll say Ana Ng, Climbing The Walls, Birdhouse in Your Soul, New York City, Take Out The Trash, Snail Shell, Sleeping in the Flowers, etc. There are waaaay too many. All of their stuff is good. Definitely my favorite band of all time.
3. The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Let me start off with saying that I hate people who just label this band as 'Jimi Hendrix. …
8 Apr 2009, 11:06 by LlorenzaThe Jimi Hendrix Experience – Electric Ladyland
The final part of the ultimate experience is here: this is the third and last album of the Jimi Hendrix Experience. Noel Redding was tired of playing perfect bass lines (apparently he had to redo Gypsy Eyes 43 times), so he left the band. Electric Ladyland is considered the best Jimi Hendrix album, and it was the one that sold most.
There are some mindblowing fantastic songs on this album: Crosstown Traffic, Gypsy Eyes (can't be otherwise after 43 tries for perfection), Burning Of The Midnight Lamp, House Burning Down, Voodoo Child (Slight Return)... and of course the ultimate Bob Dylan cover All Along the Watchtower. This is the album where Jimi Hendrix plays the electric guitar at his best.
But honestly? I do not love this album as much as I love the previous two. Really? Really! It will probably be an example of my inconsistent and strange taste, but I found this album just a bit too long and sometimes (now it comes) a bit pretentious. …

8 Nov 2008, 07:55 by rockrobster23Well, this week's cornucopia is staggeringly good. Even if, for the sake of argument, song quality is distributed randomly, I was bound to come up on one of these clumps of greatness sooner or later. 3:40 is obviously a great length for a song to be, and now that I am aware of that fact, I regret never writing a song of this length. How ignorant I was! If only I could do it all over again…. Anyway, having so many great songs in a single group makes ranking them very difficult. By restricting these rankings to very small groups of songs, I was hoping to avoid tough decisions like this. I mean, how do you evaluate two songs as different as “Life During Wartime” and “Pancho and Lefty,” and say, this one is better than that one? There aren’t very many relevant points of comparison between them. Which raises the issue of what it is, exactly, I am doing when I make these subjective rankings. What are my criteria? What is it that I value in a song?
18 Apr 2008, 04:31 by munkeyman711. How did you get into 29?
Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
Probably "Breakdown" and "Refugee."
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22?
I'd have to say "Aqualung."
3. How many albums by 13 do you own?
I own Elton John, Tumbleweed Connection, Madman Across the Water, Honky Chateau, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road, and Caribou. Last one's on vinyl and it isn't as good as the rest. I've also got a compilation called Love Songs. So seven albums total.
4. What is your favorite song by 15?
The Moody Blues
Oh God, probably the bit right before "Nights in White Satin" on Days of Future Passed. I think it's called "Twilight Time."
5. What is your favorite song by 5?
6. Is there a song by 6 that makes you happy?
"If You Feel"
7. What is your favorite song by 10?
"Death of a Clown" or "Shangri-La"
