While the draft Spotify playlist is neat and I have definitely been exposed to some new stuff I like/love via the draft (thanks Krista and Mr. Krista!), I have found that this draft has really sent me down the rabbit hole of my own peculiar tastes, more than anything. That happening to anybody else?

For sure, remembering a lot of albums I haven't listened to in many years.

10 round pick xx - Lorde - Melodrama (2017) - pop

songs - Green Light, Homemade Dynamite, The Louvre, and Liability.

She is the queen of pop for gen Z and millennials for good reason.

Whats crazy is she’s only 23 right now and she’s only getting better as an artist.

I like your album choice, either of hers is worth a spot here.

Coronet!  I believe the proper term for their pizza is a "slab," though.  Or maybe that's just what we called it.

Slice for us. Their slices were like 2-3 regular pizza slices.

I remember being shocked that they actually made entire pies and didn't just make slices.

My friend Andy drunkenly challenged them to prove they were using real cheese one late night (had seen them wheeling in giant tins of generic "cheese-stuff" earlier...we never got to unmask that Scooby Doo villain.

Thanks man. Same to you. Just "celebrated" it, while sheltering in place. We had previously been planning to meet a few other couples at a local "Norse beer hall" and then to have dinner at a Mexican steakhouse (they are just blocks apart; Ballard is awesome). It was an evening perfectly tuned to my tastes. Then we were going to actually go to Mexico this month, for a joint birthday/anniversary celebration.

Of course none of that happened.

Mine is end of August, so I’m hoping to be able to do something. My wife is 1 year younger, so we may do something big next year for both of us.

Their slabs were like an entire pie.  Not really the greatest pizza but hit the spot when very drunk.

Unrelated note, any reason Michigan claims the hook like island above Wisconsin?

very random question in this music thread

ETA:  TLDR ...Wisconsin was, at one point, part of Michigan territory but broke off before it ever had its own name on the upper peninsula. Thus, we never had it. But, if Ohio had just kept to itself and accepted the loss of the Toledo Strip, Michigan would have likely left the upper peninsula for Wisconsin.

I was wondering when this would get picked.  Figured it would go fairly soon.  I'd have perhaps considered it later on.  I like this pick.

I thought of it last night when I saw her announcement about some new recording or something.  Good pick.

10.38: Moby Grape - Moby Grape (1967)

A pioneering album from the early SF-based psychedelic movement that combined folk, blues, country, jazz and rock. Very unheralded musicianship - with a three guitar attack - led by Skip Spence, who was in other bands not to be mentioned yet and lived a very colorful life. And all the band members sang. But like many before and after them, drugs did them in and they didn't last long enough.

Will pick their most "popular' songs:

Hey Grandma

Omaha

Damn Skippy.

Although I was a Columbia bagels drunk fan...walk in at 4-5am after the clubs had closed and feel the glass front of the bagel bins to see if anything was hot=freshly made. If poppy was available I'd throw tuna salad on top.

Neither of those spots exist any more.

I think I've done a good job balancing between the two. I've been getting a solid hour on the mix a couple times per day. How much I get listening to my own just depends what else is going on that day.

Wisconsin actually wasn't even a territory at the time Michigan applied to become a State so Wisconsin had no say in it. Michigan and Ohio were in a bitter dispute over Toledo. When Michigan applied for Statehood, Congress basically said "let Ohio have Toledo and you can have the UP".

Aw, that sucks.  If you tell me V&T doesn't exist any more, then I'm going to have a sad.

11.03: Thin Lizzy - Live And Dangerous (1978)

Was surprised to see Jailbreak go so earlier, but glad that one (great in and of itself) was taken and not this one. One of the best twin guitar bands of all time and this album is often credited as one of the best live rock albums of its time. Bummed that my business trip to Dublin in August was cancelled - was hoping to check out Phil Lynott's haunting grounds. :(

Rosalie/Cowgirl's Song

Still In Love With You

I almost went Big Star in a very Eephus manner but it felt icky and I didn’t want to get into an online tussle. What a great album(s).

You are lucky I didn't "cheat" and take this with #1 Record.  I know some people have been taking these "sets" that later were released together, as those two were.  Nice pick!!  :)

The shows were headlined by U2, Sting and Bryan Adams and also featured Peter Gabriel, Lou Reed, Joan Baez, and The Neville Brothers. 

LOL at Bryan Adams getting billing over Peter Gabriel and Lou Reed.

I could have cheated too by taking GP with Grievous Angel since that is offered in a one disc set.

Joni Mitchell- Court and Spark 

“Court and Spark”

”Raised on Robbery”

I haven't heard this in a long time. One of my favorites of hers. I love the song "Free Man in Paris" on it.
