Music - What I'm listening to

Recommended Posts

You know, I really hate it when I have to buy an entire music CD just to find one good song. Sometimes I get lucky and find more than one (especially if its a singer/group whose music I buy regularly).

No, I don't like downloading and burning music. I like owning my own CDs because when I walk into my entertainment room or den, I was to get hit with this wall of stuff

Anyway, yesterday I picked up the following. The first column is the group. The second column is the track that made me buy it.

  1. 3 Doors Down - Here Without You
  2. Matchbox Twenty - Unwell
  3. No Doubt : The Singles 1992-2003 - Its My Life
  4. Nickelback - (Haven't listened to this one yet)
  5. Santana : Remixes & Rarities - Why don't you and I?
  6. Outkast - The Love Below/Speakerboxx (Haven't listened to this one yet

What I currently have in my 6CD changer in one of my cars)

  1. Sarah Brightman - Harem
  2. Norah Jones - Feels like home
  3. Best Of Smooth Jazz Vol 1
  4. Seal IV
  5. Simply Red - Home
  6. Praful - One Day Deep

Amen! I've got colleagues in the theatre industry who are just like "We're paying royalties so why buy the full album". I like the feeling of walking into my room and having to step over the 9 cardboard boxes of CDs .

Which album is the Nickelback CD? There are a few good songs on their latest album. I don't really care for most of those bands much; lately I've been listening to some old school punk and metal, most notably M├Âtley Cr├╝e.

That Outkast CD is a good CD though. Boy, I remember when one of the Outkast members got shot in Savannah (which is only about 1 1/2 hours north of where I live).

The Nickelback CD is the The Long Road. Its my first one, so I'm looking forward to listening to it in its entirety.

I wish there more groups out there that released the kind of music I listen to. When it comes to music, I'm just as jaded and elitist as I am with games.Primarily my favorite artists are:

1. Delerium

2. Enigma

3. Bjork

4. Mythos

5. Robert Miles

And all but Enigma have released at one worthless CD in the last three years (In some cases more than one). Delerium's last 'Chimera' was an hour and a half of what seemed like the same song... and that song wasn't very good to begin with. I would KILL for another 'Poem', 'Reality of a Dreamer', or 'Organik.' Theres just no artists out making that kind of music any more

stuff im listening to now:

Rammstein - mainly because i have taken up german, and im starting to understand what the hell theyre talking about... even without the lyrics the music IMO is great... nice heavy thick beat... almost industrial. i have 3 of their cd's in my car cd changer.

Red Hot Chili Peppers - Greatest hits... i mean cmon just about every song on the CD was a top 10... and theyre west coast #4 in the cd changer.

im a huge cypress hill fan, rage against the machine, saliva, sublime, mighty mighty bosstones, slipknot, drowning pool...

and i wont get into my classic rock fixation...

Dead Eye Dick is a very good example of this. New Age Girl was a great catchy song. I bought the CD, and all the other songs were very sub-par.
