23. Okt. 2008, 21:29 von zvirblisSo, here I am, after 2 years on Last.fm. I'm at a total of 33,935 songs, putting this year's total at a little less than last year's. Whatever. Considering I had issues getting my computer and iPod to work together on last.fm, I'm just glad most of them counted. So, anyway, I think I'll follow the same format as last year, pretty much. I'll list my top 50 as of right now, and maybe comment a bit on any trends I see. So, let's go.
The Beatles 2,361
They Might Be Giants 2,265
Mike Oldfield 1,470
The Alan Parsons Project 884
Fountains of Wayne 850
The Killers 754

9. Mär. 2007, 3:35 von arkandriaFunny question nowadays. If you are curious about the mix of artists in my charts it can be explained quite easy by looking at the files in my computer.
Take a look at my directories:
.../a capella/ #Here you find King's Singers, Rockapella, Vocal Sampling, and others. Many of them are very badly tagged.
.../electronic/ #Moby, Lounge Classics (A Decade Of Lounge Chill Out) and other compilations. Many of them i find VERY interesting, as Exploration, but, as they are part of a compilation, NEVER will be high on a player on RANDOM MODE.
.../Spanish/ #Many, many artists with just a few songs each one. This is the most selected file of them all. Exceptions: El Rock De Mi Pueblo, Buena Vista Social Club, Juan Luis Guerra, from whom i have a large selection of greatest hits. Any of the other songs are truly the best of the best for me. Wont be high in the charts also.
.../English/ #So many! here we have mainly Queen, U2, KT Tunstall, and sooo many others. Again, just a song or two from each artist.

27. Apr. 2006, 8:37 von rmajorsOne of my Christian friends who is mostly into jazz recently got some sort of online music account and wanted as general a musical recommendation as I could muster in order that she might branch out a little musically. This is the result - just a grab bag of the best and most varied albums I know, with an emphasis on what might be billed as Christian rock, since that is what I know best. Must-hears in bold.
In other words, here's just another recommendations list (though I am confident in the must-hears.) Have fun.
1. Billy Breathes
Studio-refined jam band rock - absolutely amazing talent and soundcraft and whatnot. Get anything by Phish but this is the best studio album. My second favorite CD ever.
2. Health and Sport by Luxury
You almost certainly will not be able to find this, but if you do, keep it. It sounds a lot like a very very good Radiohead album, but better.
3. Take Me To Your Leader
The best of the '90s Christian pop/rock scene. Which is a pretty big scene.
