Clearly, the Beatles are hacks. Chris Thomas wasn't good enough for U2, so they ditch him and the Beatles just try to copy U2 by working with His Inferiorness to create bad reproductions of U2's material. I mean, have you heard their song, Help? Bono's been singing that live for years and they stole it!

My favourite movie from the 60s is The Great Escape.

Cool. It's my least favorite, but I still enjoy it very much.

The last 30 minutes of Alien is fucking killer, that's for sure. It's one of the best horror films ever, I wouldn't put it as an action film though.

Have you finished the first half of the list yet?
Definitely see The Great Escape. I tend to watch it every year on my birthday because I enjoy it so much.

Yeah, just finished now. Definitely preferred the second half; the majority of it appealled to me. The Peter Gabriel track was interesting and well done, and led well from Killer to Please. And of course, I love Please.

Not into this Weezer song, though.

Mrs, Robinson...Jesus loves you more than you will know. That is all.

I lump any particular triology/series into one category/genre. The Alien series, to me, is action. And Alien is my favourite of the series. Therefore, to me, it qualifies.

Thought you would. Did you think it worked as a 18 song set and as the different sections?

Like I said before, the first 18 tracks and last 18 tracks match up, so the segue from Please -> Greatest Man doesn't work at all.

Oh, okay. I'd say Aliens and the abortion that was Alien: Resurrection count, but the first and third are pure psychological horror to me, with bits of action thrown in.

It's from the Last Temptation of Christ soundtrack, which is almost as good as the movie.

Really? I thought you'd find it overrated.

Yes, it works as an 18 song set, and mostly as 9 song sections. I did kind of feel the last two songs of the first quarter are a bit out of place, though, if you just take those 9 by themselves. I really like how you've integrated all the different musical styles in those 18 tracks.

The Pavement track's alright, doesn't do much for me either way. Must warn you, I was never much a fan of The Replacements, especially not Bastards Of Young, and now whenever I hear it, I think of this one guy who I wish would die in a horribly fiery plane crash, so I'm kind of biased here.
