1. (MF) Doom - Angelz (2010)
2. El-P - Squeegee Man Shooting (2002)
3. Spencer Wiggins - The Power of a Woman (1967) [So goddamn good if you're in a soul mood]
4. Black Flag - Southern Rise (1985) [From their instrumental album "The Process of Weeding Out", which some folks hate. I'm fairly okay with it]
5. Tom Waits - Midnight Lullaby (1973) [From Tom's debut album, "Closing Time". Much more I could say about my personal experience with this album, but I'm not gonna go there right now]
6. X - Soul Kitchen (1980) [Doors cover. I've never been much of a Doors fan, but I'll give Manzarek props for helping X out. Looks like I'm finally gonna get to see X live in November. Very excited.]
7. Illogic - I Wish He Would Make Me (2004) [Dude's heavy. Very heavy. But solid.]
8. Crooked Fingers - Devil's Train (2001) [Couldn't find the album version on YT, so here's a decent live version. Bachmann slays me. I love him]
9. Jon Spencer Blues Explosion - Caroline (2007) [Been a long time since I've seen them live. Would love to get another chance.]
10. Mind Spiders - Going Away Tonight (2011) [Decent indie-garage-ish Austin band]
For whatever reason, I'm shocked that I have more CCR than you do, danf. And I only have one album (but it is Willy and the Poor Boys, which Effigy came from)
Well there are a lot of artists that I had TONS of back in the LP days, but have very little interest in now. Jackson Browne, Dan Fogelberg (rip), Jefferson Airplane, Joni Mitchell, Seals and Crofts, and others. CCR fits in that category.
Joy Division "Love Will Tear Us Apart" A sort of raggedy but awesome live version. Steely Dan "Daddy Don't Live In That New York City No More" XTC "Church of Women" The Cure "Screw" Prince & The Revolution "Computer Blue" Teenage Fanclub "120 Mins" Air Miami "Bubble Shield" The Wake "Plastic Flowers" R.E.M. "We Walk" Desmond Dekker "Israelites"
mmmkay... I've mentioned before that I don't do shuffles (my brief past as a radio DJ resulted in an obsession with PROGRAMMING the music).
Today, Lifehacker grabbed me by the audio with an article on Earworms (one of my never-fulfilled web projects is Earworm-related) and they set up an open Spotify playlist of Earworms to which I HAD to contribute some...
Escape (The Pina Colada Song) - Rupert Holmes
F You - Cee Lo Green (I used the bowdlerized version)
Gilligan's Island theme
Good Vibrations - The Beach Boys
I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing (the Coke jingle)
It's the End of the World As We Know It - REM
Reeling in the Years - Steely Dan
'Trololo' - Eduard Khil (Spotify also has remixes)
Where Everybody Knows Your Name (Theme from Cheers)
Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who
many others somebody just beat me to...
1999, Billie Jean, I'm a Believer, Rocket Man, Walkin' on Sunshine, What I Like About You, Blue (Da Ba Dee), Tubthumping, We Will Rock You, Africa, 867-5309 (Jenny), It's a Small World (from Disneyland), Monty Python's Always Look on the Bright Side of Life [I have so much respect for whoever added that one], Safety Dance, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme, Smurfs theme, American Pie, Karma Chameleon, The Girl from Ipanema, Spanish Flea (Tijuana Brass/Dating Game), Never Gonna Give You Up (The Rick Roll) and Somebody That I Used to Know (The Gotye Roll)
And the shuffle lists here give me a few more candidates...
So much pain, yet so much fun.
[After the MeFi post about Prog Rock, I was tempted to toss in ELP's Karn Evil 9 (Welcome back my friends...) but even I couldn't be that cruel...]
