Music I'm listening to.

Something off topic for Saturday evening.

I’m loving these songs at the moment.

AC/DC - Back in Black
Pixies - Where is my mind (also like the Placebo cover)
Simple Minds - Don’t you forget about me
Cold Play - Strawberry Swing
The Prodigy - Omen & Warrior’s Dance
Lily Allen - 22

What sort of music do you all listen to?

Huey Lewis and the News

Their early work was a little too new wave for my tastes, but when Sports came out in ‘83, I think they really came into their own, commercial and artistically. The whole album has a clear, crisp sound, and a new sheen of consummate professionalism that really gives the songs a big boost. He’s been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far much more bitter, cynical sense of humour.

A lot of late 70s/early 80’s stuff (David Bowie, Iggy Pop/Stooges, Joy Division, Spaceman 3)
For new Stuff, I like Handsome Furs, Brian Jonestown Massacre, White Stripes, the Editors & Nine Inch Nails.

That’s a pretty eclectic mix, soddy.

My personal Favorite is Hip to Be square, a song so catchy, most people probably don’t listen to the lyrics - But they should. Because its not just about the pleasures of conformity and the importance of trends. It’s also personal statement about the band itself. HEY PAUL!

Note: I didn’t copy/paste that. I have much of the movie committed to memory. Good way to freak out the gf.

Mostly Woodie Guthrie, Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, … I used to listen to so much blues, but I just do not have time now.

Debussy at the moment

On a bit of a Bruce Springsteen buzz at the moment after seeing him a few weeks ago. Greetings from Asbury Park is getting a lot of time.

Always need a hit of Bowie to get me though the day (Recommend his cover of Bruce’s Growin Up). Tom Waits & Elvis Costello are regulars too.

Newer stuff - Empire of the Sun, MGMT, Louis XIV, Athlete (just getting into them), Interpol, Director. And after years of bad mouthing Damien Rice as being a bore, I kinda think he’s alright now.

Haha. Impressive. While reading it I was wondering if you went to the bother to google PB quotes to copy & paste…

Ah Damien Rice is brilliant - last album isnt the best though!

Right now Bring Me the Horizon. Before that it was The Casino Brawl.

I am jamming a lot of RATM right now.

TV on the Radio

Yeah, I never got stuck in any genre. I seem to like bits of most music. Apart from that freaky metal like Sepultura and Korn and stuff like that. Anything heavier than Metallica isn’t for me.

Is KarenC the only one with any taste?

True, but 9 Crimes is a great song. Plus, word is that he discovered Rodrigo y Gabriela, so I’ve got to give him a big thumbs up for that.

EDIT: I also love Rootless Tree.

Jensen - Very true - I should have mentioned that the only decent song on that album is 9 crimes but I could listen to every song on “O”

CoffeeCip08 - Thanks hun ;) I listen to a lot of classical while painting but acoustic music is great too

I’m listening to A Tribe Called Quest, back when hip-hop music was good.

Sincerely,

Stubborn Sam

I like trance although at time i like to bring it back to old school with some Nirvana and Pearl Jam.

thrice, muse, radiohead, interpol, pearl jam, & Britney Spears.

Good call…I like those guys.

You guys need to check out Gogol Bordello (especially live) gogolbordello.com. They put on a freakin’ show!

I also like some of the harder stuff out there…I’m pretty excited for the new Chevelle, and Alice in Chains. Even though there’s no Lane Staley anymore, they still kick a$$!

what, no jonas brothers?

There are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it - Oscar Wilde

what, no Britney Spears?

“Dorchester Hotel” by The Sounds is SICK. S.I.C.K. As is “The General Specific” by Band of Horses.

Poker Face – Lady Gaga. Just wasted the last hour watching about 8 different live performances. For such a weird chick she’s still pretty hawt.

^you know she’s a hemo right?

That’s just a rumor. And even if that was true I’m down as long as certain length constraints aren’t breached.

she recently admitted it, google it. TMI.

She didn’t admit anything, it was just a rumor that her publicist denied. She’s 5’1”, has droopy funbags, and wears skin-tight outfits that show cameltoe, so I’m going to have to go with female on this one.
