I was going to listen to a bunch of Primus in advance of Bonnaroo this summer, no need now :(

It's somewhat of an obvious comment on my end, but it's really too bad that these things aren't happening.

I read the news today, oh boy...

I'm supposed to be in Dublin right now. That is after watching Peter Hook and the Light play Joy Division's discography in their hometown on the anniversary of Ian Curtis's death and then watching Manchester United play Leicester City on the last day of the Premier League.

It hurts to type that out. :cry:

I drafted this in one of our recent drafts. I love this guy. The band Calexico joins him on this album. They also joined him on a proper album of his which is a favorite.

Round 11 
 

Live from the Artists Den - Amos Lee (2013)

Seven Spanish Angels

Violin

 

All pales in comparison to the Rights to Ricky sanchez theme

Havana Affair by The Ramones: a lot of this straightforward 70s punk sound just does not work for me 

There is a Light That Never Goes Out by The Smiths: everything about this sound works for me

Two Hearts Collide by Level 42:  I couldn’t possibly know less about what this is. I need an explanation on this. 

Fell on Black Days LIVE by Chris Cornell: I hadn’t ever heard this version, really good stuff 

Starship Trooper….. By Yes: A 10 minute Yes song? My god this is testing my patience...now 2 minutes in and I feel like Yes is trying to apply a rear naked choke, I am resisting admirably….oh god Yes applies an armbar at the five minute mark and I tap. 

One Big Holiday by My Morning Jacket: such a great sound

Makes sense. I just didn't see it so I don't want to agitate anyone. I am sure CIA would be cool with us moving ahead though. 

Just now catching up.  Yeah, permanent autoskip for me.  Right now I don't even know what I want to pick.  Much pondering to do.

I have this mix a little loud and think my neighbors could be wondering WTF.

I knew I wouldn't get to pick Joy Division early enough but love it.

I was surprised by Bob Mould going before his band, but forgot what a pop joy "See A Little Light" is.  I think I'm adding it to my revered "Thirteen" playlist, which is my favorite songs and is named for the first song I put on the list (although it is not even my favorite Big Star song).

I've always loved Leonard's deepened voice in his older years. It seems to fit the mood of his music. I also think his live shows bring out the life in his music.

Round 12

Live in London - Leonard Cohen (2009)

Dance Me To the End of Love

Closing Time

Ah we're drinking and we're dancing
And the band is really happening
And the Johnny Walker wisdom running high
And my very sweet companion
She's the angel of compassion
She's rubbing half the world against her thigh  
😲

Certainly on my list, but not my next pick.  You're slipping!

I agree regarding loving his voice in the later years.  :heart:

Scenes from an Italian Restaurant - Joel:  Classic piano man.

The Bells of Rhymney - The Byrds:  sounds like an extended version of Turn (not a bad thing)

Oh! Sweet Nuthin' - VU: So good.

Ripple - Dead:  :unsure:

I Know You Got Soul - Eric B. & Rakim:  Can't say no to old Skool rap.

Generation Landslide - Alice Cooper:  Not really familiar, mostly know the "hits" from Alice.  Liked!

Underwear - Pulp:  Wasn't familiar, if it have been after the Velvet Underground song I would have thought there were from the same album. Liked

Searching With My Good Eye - Soundgarden:  Good if not a little screamy

Skew It on the Bar-B - Outkast:  Love ALT rap/hipity hop

Don't Give Up - Peter Gabriel (Bush):  Wish I had drafted this :kicksrock:

It almost doesn't make sense for me to comment on this latest shuffle because it's going to all songs I already love (only one I picked)

  • Edge of Seventeen - Stevie Nicks - all time classic
  • Electric Feel - MGMT  - Sounds great in the mix
  • The Wild KIndness - Silver Jews - I was probably least familiar with this of the bunch but it's great
  • Saint Simon - The Shins - amazing
  • New York I Love You, But You're Bringing Me Down - LCD Soundsystem - on many days my favourite LCD Soundsystem song
  • Almost Had to Start a Fight - Parquet Courts - My favourite album this year it was released
  • Foxy Lady - Jimi Hendrikx - another classic
  • Unsatisfied - The Replacements - long standing member of my favourites playlist
  • Wake Up - Arcade Fire - from my 1st round pick, enough said.
  • I've Been Loving You Too Long - Otis Redding - SOOOOOOOOOUL

4.35 – Jimi Hendrix – Are You Experienced

6.05 – Johnny Cash – At Folsom Prison

6.29 – The Wrens – Meadowlands

6.38 – Miles Davis – #####es Brew

8.09 – James Brown – Live at the Apollo

8.40 – Soundgarden – Superunknown

10.20 – The Who – Live at Leeds

11.06 – XTC - Skylarking

 

Actually I guess those are in a particular order.

11.34 Metallica - Master of Puppets (1986)

I get it - know your demo's. But the best thrash metal of all time in round 11. I spose I can cross-off consider getting cute with your Metallica selection from the list.

Battery

Master of Puppets

Should really beef up that long song shtick too :thumbup:

@RedmondLonghorn

My favorite album by my second favorite band. God I love Metallica.   It never gets old even though I have.  Don’t know how you chose two songs from that album.   Had to be challenging.    Rock on.

It is raining so hard out. There is a retention pond that has gold fish in it, and whenever consecutive days of rain or a big storm comes through, it overflows into this small area with dirt and grass, and the gold fish spill over and get stuck.  Once the water recedes in a few days they are doomed. It is going to rain until Saturday. I know I shouldn't do it with all this weird health stuff going on, but I'm sure I'll be out there Saturday with a tank net and rain boots scooping them up to toss them back into the retention pond so they don't die. I need to put something in that section that has small holes where the water can get through, but not the fish. We'll see. I'd get my friend Steve to help, but he hasn't been practicing social distancing, so I don't want him near me. :lol:

####### Simey....you are an inspiration.

Well.......:wall::cry:You're killing me Bonz.

I was listening to this one all day.  Just before Keep It Like A Secret.  

Hot Burrito #1 is a top 20 song of all time for me.  

Great minds.. :lol:

Nothing aches as bad as Hot Burrito #1. Just cuts right through me.

Battery was always one, but I waffled on the other throughout the day. Wish I had given it a full listen before today. Just didn't think it would not go drafted to this point, especially after Justice went so early. But this isn't a draft full of metal heads.

Posts above reminded me to add 11.34 Metallica, Master of Puppets, to this list.

Some headscratchers in there for sure. There is one (well a few actually) that I'm surprised are still out there, but I keep passing so :shrug:
