Cool sig by the way, I saw The Castle for the very first time the other night.

I just realised that might have come across as sarcastic.. didn't mean it that way!! Bon Jovi go alright.

Sucks Yeah I made it, I wrote an article, it's in the 'australian music apprecation thread'. It absolutely blew my mind, sorry to say

Nice!! Did you enjoy it? I can quote it till the cows come home.

I used to listen to Goo Goo Dolls quite a bit. Almost never now.

I went through a period of about a year in like 2007-2008 where I hardly listened to any U2 but since the new album and everything has picked up my U2 listening has exploded again.

I also used to listen to a lot of Melissa Etheridge and Sting. I still dab back into their music now and then and I still love them, I just am listening to things more current right now.

Also my Bon Jovi listening has really taken a nose dive in the last year and a half.

What usually happens is I liked an album a couple years ago and I will listen to it a lot in like the first couple months or year of release and then leave it alone for another year or couple years. Then I'll go back and it'll be even better than I remembered

(Bon Jovi) Hehe no probs I still reckon Slippery When Wet is a great album and probably will always rate it highly because those old songs are kind of hardwired into the nostalgic part of my brain, but even if their later albums were stellar I would've eventually drifted away from them. Still a soft spot for old times though..

(Sound Relief) Ah shit I knew it! I would've loved to have seen those Split Enz performances, maybe even moreso than the Oils.. At least there's a good chance that they (Enz) might do the rounds again. Also I dug back and read your article, nice work! Did you submit it anywhere?

(The Castle) Yeah really enjoyed it, it won me over in spite of myself. I was expecting it to be saturated with the Aussie battler cliches and of course it was in a piss-take sort of way but it was also too charming to not get caught up in. "And the chimney? Fake as well.. " "Why?" "Charm.. Adds a bit of charm.."

No one can resist a bit of Bon Jovi... and when it comes to party tunes, can you really beat Livin' on a Prayer? I think not.

The Enz were soooo good.. I had no idea about them really, only knew a few songs, but they blew my mind.

And yes, everyone comes around A few of my friends were apprensive because people talked it up all the time, but it's the little subtle lines like the one you mentioned which win people over.

I used to listen to AquA, Spice Girls, Savage Garden when I was 10 or so....still do. Not really ashamed of them either.

I'm still quite hardcore about Savage Garden actually.

Some stuff from high school/college that dominated my life but is now gathering dust:

Ride. Hasn't aged well for me, except maybe Nowhere. I might have taken a bullet for those guys in '91.
Ned's Atomic Dustbin. What was I thinking...
REM. Best American music of the 80's, but lost it's luster from Monster on.
U2, especially pre-Achtung. My first love, hardly listened to anymore.

More recent stuff that was worn out in its day, then archived for reasons I could never explain:

Sufjan Stevens
Rogue Wave
Destroyer
The Innocence Mission. They lost me after Glow, their virtually unknown masterpiece.
