the “what are you listening to right now” thread..

  • Posted: 16 January 2003 02:12 PM #31

    Right now? The Corrs, a European pop-type group. Very good music though - not like the sludge that gets passed off as “pop” in the US. (They’re almost unknown in the US, incidentally - they’ve stated that whereas they’re mobbed in England, they can walk in the streets of New York without any harassment. smile )

    Thank you Apple for making the iPod. Brightens my day to be able to listen to my music, my way, whenever i want. raspberry

    I got The Corrs Talk On Corners album shortly after its release. I’ll end up getting In Blue at some point, but they definitely bump up against the border of my pop sensibilities, so it’ll be during one of my pilgrimages to the used store (which is not a bad thing, a good percentage of my CDs come from there smile )

    Now listening to Donovan, Get Thy Bearings.

    In Blue is rather pop-like, moreso than Talk On Corners, I think. Try to find Forgiven, Not Forgotten - that’s probably my favorite of their three US releases so far. It also has the wonderfully peppy violin instrumental Toss the Feathers. Yeah, yeah, I know, too much info at once. :D

    As a note, Gadget (the iPod) is now playing Enya’s The Memory of Trees album. Next up will be some synthpop, probably. smile

    iTunes is playing Vienna Teng’s debut album “Waking Hour” through my headphones.  I never would have heard of this except I happened to wake up at the right time last Sunday for a bit on NPR (long story, read my blog for more details).  Highly recommended.

    PJ Harvey - Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea
    PJ Harvey and Jon Parish - Dance Hall at Louse Point
    Sonic Youth - Dirty

    (Yes, I know I’m showing my age here raspberry )

    I’ve had this (there’s no other word for it) Polly-Jean Harvey obsession since I was fifteen. Great music, wonderful woman. I still think To Bring You My Love is her best album. Every one in a while, I listen to one of her albums. They get better and better the more I listen to them.

    Sonic Youth is another of my all-time favourites. Goo, Daydream Nation and Dirty are in my all-time top twenty list.

    There’s just something soothing about the constant background click-click-click of disc-flipping. I start to get the shakes if I haven’t been there in two weeks.

    I like my local Cheapo because being a former Best Buy building it’s huge, has a great selection, and is open until midnight 365 days a year. smile

    Off the X-Files sound track, or off his album (if he has one)?

    I recall it from the X-Files soundtrack. I don’t remember what it sounds like, but I remember I liked it. smile

    Currently: Roundabout from Yes. I’ve been getting to listen to a lot of Yes tonight, including some songs I’ve never heard before (such as Machine Messiah, off Drama).

    Drama is one of my favorite Yes albums. It’s an odd one in the sense that that particular band line-up (with Trevor Horn and Geoff Downs having replaced Jon Anderson and Rick Wakeman) only recorded that one album. Incidently, I saw them on that tour. Machine Messiah is a great song! smile

    Mine? Well it would be The Supernatural Anaesthetist by Genesis from The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway.

    It depends on what you look at, obviously,
    But even more it depends on the way that you see

    A great album, though I don’t listen to it too often anymore.  I was a huge Genesis fan in the early 90’s, buying all the old albums, but I guess I burned out eventually.

    Right now, I’m playing completely random songs, and giving them star ratings.  I only started giving ratings last night, and I have 1091 songs right now, so it’ll take a while!  Tool’s “Schism” just started playing, hmmm, I think I’ll give it 4 stars.
