    Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
    Bizet's Carmen with Leontnye Price
    Mozart's Le Nozze di Figar with Kiri Te Kanawa & Samuel Ramey
    The Who - Quadraphenia (but, but Tommy)
    U2 - Joshua Tree (Boy? Unforgettable Fire?)
    The Replacements - Pleased to Meet Me (I think Mats fans give this one short shrift)
    Black Rebel Motorcycle Clue - Baby 81 (the greatest CD no one has ever heard)
    Garbage - Garbage. Way too many great memories with this to leave it home
    REM - Automatic for the People (Reckoning? Document?)
    The Cure - Pornography (hard to ignore KMKMKM or Disintegration)

    Under consideration to knock one of those off:

    The Smiths - Strangeways Here We Come
    Midnight Oil - Red Sails in the Sunset
    Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
    Beatles - Let it Be or Rubber Soul
    The Police - Synchronicity or Outlandos d'Amour
    Boston - Boston
    Supertramp - Breakfast in America
    Allman Brothers - At Fillmore East
    Rolling Stones - Beggars Banquet. Interestingly enough Tattoo You might be my 2nd favorite if for nothing else, "Waiting on a Friend"
    Morcheeba - Big Calm
    The Samples - No Room

    This is tougher than I thought.

    Seems like live albums - especially double albums - are cheating in a way. Maybe if I pick live albums, they count as 2 (or 3)?

    I mean, if I can have any one Zeppelin official release and that's for the rest of my life, it's gotta be How the West Was Won - live and 3 discs. Floyd would be Pulse (2 discs) and the Dead would be Dozin' at the Knick (3 discs).

    If it's studio stuff I take Zeppelin III, Meddle and I skip the Dead.


    The other thing is that I really don't listen to albums by themselves too often. I have playlists or I put an artist's catalogue on shuffle.

    Also - I'm torn between all-time favorite albums that I don't necessarily listen to frequently anymore and more current stuff that I listen to on playlists.


    For this exercise it should probably be studio as that makes one make tough choices.

    I'll be back...

    Re: USCHO Music Thread 4: Songs She Sang to Me, Songs She Brang to Me

    If I'm going to be stuck here, I can only rock my socks off so many days in a row, so rather than a list of just my favorite albums, I went for a variety of great music. (With the exception of "at Budakon " which is the first album I really loved as a kid, so I couldn't bear to part with it for purely personal connection reasons.)

    Willie Nelson -Greatest Hits (and some that will be)

    Bob Marley and the Wailers -Exodus

    Frank Sinatra -Songs for Swingin' Lovers

    Beastie Boys -Paul's Boutique

    Berlin Philharmonic -Beethoven Symphonies Nos. 5 & 6

    Stevie Ray Vaughn -Live at Montreaux in '82 & '85

    Cheap Trick -at Budakon

    Dave Brubeck -Take Five

    Led Zepplin IV

    Beatles -White Album


    Some stuff that didn't make the cut but I wish did: Marshall Mathers LP, Ray Charles Greatest Hits (1962), Daft Punk -Discovery, Kinda Blue, The Wall, Electric Ladyland, Cream -Wheels of Fire, Dookie and American Idiot, Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue etc., Zen Arcade... More stuff By Led, Johhny Cash, AC/DC, Van Halen, Pink Floyd, Springsteen, Prince, Rush, REM... It's hard to choose. Dylan's "Highway 61 Revisited" could provide a year's worth of time spent trying to figure out just what he meant by a particular phrase...

    Yeah, I listened to Siamese Dream front to back on an almost daily basis for a solid 6 months or more. It was the giant leap I was expecting from them after the sub pop single and Gish. Soma alone could buoy me for days on end.

    Re: USCHO Music Thread 4: Songs She Sang to Me, Songs She Brang to Me

    A friend of mine in college grew up with Corgan.

    I was at Western Illinois for one semester and he was telling me about his friend's new project - Smashing Pumpkins - and how great they were gonna be. Gish hadn't come out yet.

    One weekend, a couple of the guys from Snake Train (Iha's previous band) came down and stayed with him and partied with us. Used to have an EP of theirs on cassette but haven't seen it in 20+ years.

    This friend of mine also said that he had been asked to join Billy for the new project - in Iha's slot presumably (or on bass?) but that he chose college instead. This was well before Gish (fall of 89) and dude was a really good guitarist - we played together and recorded in the dorms - so at the time and without the benefit of hindsight or knowing how it all turned out - I had no reason not to believe him.

    If true, I wonder if he had regrets.

    We didn't stay in touch when I moved to Lacrosse the next semester.


    Gish was my favorite and MC seemed to be written about MY childhood in the Chicago burbs.

    See, that's the problem I have. There are too many live albums or anthology series that I would immediately take.

    Ray Charles - Complete Country & Western Recordings 1959-1986
    Johnny Cash - American Recordings
    Bruce Springsteen - Live/ 1975-1985
    Willie Nelson - Revolutions of Time...The Journey 1975/1993

    But studio albums only? In no particular order:

    Springsteen - The River
    Sinatra - Only the Lonely
    Cowboy Junkies - The Trinity Session
    Lucinda Williams - Car Wheels On a Gravel Road
    Pink Floyd - The Wall
    U2 - Achtung Baby
    Dwight Yoakam - This Time
    Elvis Costello - Armed Forces
    Emmylou Harris - Red Dirt Girl
    Springsteen - Darkness On the Edge of Town
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    It occurred to me you could surf all day, so maybe it's wrong to not include something from The Beach Boys, Dick Dale, the Surfaris, or the Ventures, (Or Endless Summer) ... Or could I get by with the Pixies "Surferosa"?

    Where is this island? Maybe I need more steel drums?

    On the other hand, I guess I can easily make a Pi˝a Colada without the Pina Collada song.

    You're currently in the lead for least overlap with my experience: I have heard 2 of these albums, and I have heard of just 5 of these acts. I'm taking it as a homework assignment.

    Trick question!

    I'd never travel anywhere with just 10 albums.

    Rilo Kiley - I think you'll like them. Execution of All Things is likely their most popular album, perhaps most up your alley. Released in 2003 or 2004.

    Women and I have an understanding. They tend to stay away from me, and I tend to understand that I'm repulsive to them. It's not my favorite understanding.

    I'm going to bull through all his stuff. I have a lot of gaps in my musical knowledge -- basically, if you're white and you debuted after 1983 I've never heard of you.

    It's... soothing. I tend to find this genre as all sounding alike: (but that criticism always says more about the listener than the listened to) incidental music in a Manic Pixie Dream Girl ironic romcom montage. OTOH, it would have spoken to me in a voice like thunder when I was 19.

    To every thing there is a season.

    And I must admit, Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots, which lives right next door, is to me a heartbreaking work of staggering genius.

    Well, they're a band from Los Angeles that made it big in Omaha, when that city was going through a musical revival of sorts. The band members are roughly my age.

    Maybe, but I've def. seen some bad reviews:

    One star- wouldn't recommend.
    -- Snake Plissken

    Two thumbs down. Very unfriendly. Terrible trip.
    -- The Warriors



    If places like Singapore count, I believe Slap is already stranded.
