I only listen to rock and its couple of variations: hip hop/rap, country, classical, techno ... they don't do it for me. Rock is pretty much it for me.

My top iTunes song is still Last to Die by Bruce Springsteen, with 71 plays. Moonage Daydream by David Bowie is second with 64 plays.
I listened to Ziggy Stardust, by the way. Alright album. I don't know if I really feel that strongly about it, but I'll give it another couple of spins; it might grow on me.

Last to Die - 71
Gypsy Biker - 58
Devil's Arcade - 55

I agree with your assessment though.

Devil's Arcade is in my Desert Island playlist, too. I found the perfect song to segue into it, and I think you've mentioned you like this song as well.

I'm a prog/art/psychedelic rock and atmospheric metal guy, mostly. I appreciate other strands of those genres too - like Crowded House's pop rock is indescribably well done, and I'm so down with Orphaned Land's Middle Eastern death metal it's not funny. Oh, and I also love a lot of post-rock and post-metal, which I see as an extension of my interest in atmospheric music.

Beyond that, I find I'm quite open to most things, but haven't really gotten into it. Screwtape says he's going to get me into jazz. Country and rap do nothing for me, though. And all that soul/R&B that Brau kept berating people for not including in Desert Islands just bored me or sounded like cats being strangled at its worst extremes.

*GROSS ALERT*











the only thing worse than finding one of your hairs in your food is realizing that it is one of your grey hairs

I honestly think I wouldn'tve been so mortified if it were just one of my brown hairs. /public service announcement

I'm still very much an album guy, but I do use shuffle now and then....I also make playlists to be listened to at work.

YES. I can't stand shuffle. I've put my iTunes onto shuffle very occasionally, and it's just pissed me off. "No, I don't want to listen to this now! It doesn't fit here!" If I want a mixture of bands, rather than just one artist, I'll still put it together in a playlist that flows and creates a cohesive experience, like the Desert Island tracklists.

the only time i use shuffle is on my ipod. otherwise i gotta go on the musical journey. Love, Loss, Hope, and Repeat is one of those that can only be enjoyed in full. Whenever one of the tracks appears on my shuffle I stop it and play the whole album through. I'm obsessed like that.

Honestly, none that I really remember. But on first listens, it's rare that I'll jump all over a song and say it stuck out more. Give it a few more plays.
