coblo4 thinks "Awkward Silence Cricket Sound" is better than "Teenage Wildlife" by David Bowie.

It's a rather strange opinion, but, hey, different strokes for different folks.

Can you recommend me a record of "pig grunts" that you find preferable to Stevie Wonder records?

I need to hear that.

Although I appreciate the love for 'em (especially in this place) War Paint is not one of the 50 best Rush songs much less "the best". It's not even one of the 3 best on its own album (Presto, The Pass, Show Don't Tell) and arguably isn't even in the top 5 on its own album. An album (Presto), while a pretty good album, that is probably no better than the 7th best Rush album. It's about like saying Breathe is the best U2 song ever. Good song but there's a long distance between a good song and their best song ever. That's all.

My favorite changes from week to week. I love all the songs you mentioned, but I occasionally rate "Available Light" as the best Rush song ever.

I have a vinyl copy of "Power Windows" in transit to my house. So, next week, this will be the greatest Rush song ever:

Can't think of any off hand, but the guy who does this show at umass Amherst may know:

http://martiangardens.blogspot.com/?m=1

I don't know if mofo ever caught any of that guy's stuff the semester that my show followed that dude's, but if he did and recalls, there were probably entire half hour-long pieces devoted to pigs grunting. I know he played some cricket-chirping.

I listened to that Death mini-LP, the one with the song Schloop posted. Glad I did. A lot of my favorite music sounds like that.

The Boomtown Rats Someone's Looking At You - YouTube

I'd always wondered what the deal was with Bob Geldof. I knew "I Don't Like Mondays" and thought it was a fine song, but he had to have more going on to pull shit like Live Aid together. So, I relieved myself of my ignorance and absorbed some "Boomtown Rats" albums.

Great, great band.
