Here is my current top fav’s

The Flaming Lips…Clouds Taste Metallic
Some great songs on this one..no surprise though. Evil Will Prevail, Kim’s Watermelon Gun, When You Smile and Psychiatric Exploration Of The Fetus With Needles are the stand out tracks for me on this one.

Sugar…File Under Easy Listening…as usual Bob Mould writes amazing pop tunes. Could listen to Gee Angel a zillion times without getting tired of it. I have an acoustic version of Believe What Your Saying..very cool. Sugar has always been associated with driving somewhere else fast for me….going on a roadtrip in about 40 hrs so prepping with this one.

Motor City Burning…Compilation with kick tunes from 1968-1998…includes songs by The Stooges, MC5, The Up, Sonics, Ramones, The Sillies, The Mutants and many more. The Rationals are pretty cool as well.

Ramones Anthology….can’t help myself so many great songs…another great one for roadtrips…

Iggy…New Values..great disc, not many can croon like Iggy…gotta love that. Angel, Five Foot One, New Values and Tell Me A Story just kill me every time.

Modest Mouse…the lonesome crowded west…amazing songs. Convenient Parking, every time I hear this song I have to do this stupid little dance…getting embarassing [img]images/smiles/converted/newangel.gif[/img] Other stand out tracks include Doin the Cockroach,Polar Opposites, Out of Gas and Truckers Atlas.

One of my guilty pleasures was napster…rip…I hope to find this ep on my roadtrip…The Hellacopters Disappointment Blues. Long Gone Losers…think I will just burn this song to disc 35 times, don’t want to break the discman playing this song over and over again. The way they kick it back into the second verse..WOW. Disappointment Blues is very cool as well, just not as cool as LGL.

Jebus, good call on the fact that we get tons of great tips about music from everybody on this site. Glad to hear your strong enuf within yourself to not give a *$#* about what others think of what you listen to…whatevers cool with you is cool.

Hopefully this roadtrip will result in tons more discs to listen to…may have another 5 or more by friday…no doubt!!!
