Frankly overwhelmed. As people check in with their lists and stories, I cannot keep up. Just today, Lake came in with his list. Which prompted a lot of questions, comments, and memories.
Thing is, I want to add some new posts. But I don’t want to strand this excellent conversation about Top 100s. This is the new home for all of that. New lists should be posted here. Comments on the lists of others should be posted here. Important point. We’re NOT moving on. We’re going to keep talking about music.
Hence, for example, my questions and comments for the newest list. Lake’s. You’re a teacher. No classical music at all?
Other than that, you’re driving me nuts. Bjork? She can’t sing, honey. And you have a second Icelandic song. What did they do to you up there?
You have a thing for Pink Floyd. Why? Although… the one thing you should have taken from MY list is that the best Pink Floyd cut ever is Van Morrison’s version of Comfortably Numb.
Envy? A lot. A whole bunch. Peter Gabriel. Driving home a point I’ve already lamented.
And something so consistent it almost seems like an affectation. Picking the less famous songs of bands so popular even I know them. So you have to choose something I’ve never heard of by Bush, something I barely remember by Glen Hansard, a (second and therefore superfluous) Sting song no one remembers, and a Metallica song nobody anywhere has ever heard of.
On the other hand, Iona. Had no idea there was any such thing as a true Celtic rock band. The singer is almost as pretty as the guitarist. Such a shame the Irish are running out of pretty people. A discovery worth all of this effort.
Back to ErisGuy. Memory is failing me. A song I know I committed to computer. Native American album, haunting cut featuring a digeridoo. Got it from a girl I met who was dying rapidly from cancer. Couldn’t stop listening to it. Now I can’t find the CD or the file. Any of you. Help me out…
Everybody else. Keep talking. Keep posting your lists.
