Stray Cats


Random note: There's a few extremely embarrassing picks in there, and most all of the artists seem to be from the '80's
...actually, that's not that bad a list, in my opinion. I've never heard anything by Manic Street Preachers, Minor Threat, The Misfits, Operation Ivy, and Guided By Voices, but the rest of the people on there have some really good songs. .

What I listened to in my room by myself tonight, in chronological order:

1. Bjork - 'Greatest Hits' album (in its entirety)
2. ...And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead - 'Source Tags and Codes' album (in its entirety)
3. The Strokes - 'Room on Fire' album (in its entirety)
4. The Stone Roses - 'self-titled' album (first 4 tracks, and then a few random)

I think that's enough to call it a night! (or morning)

EDIT: Too much is not enough...

5. Travis - 'Slide Show & Blue Flashing Light' (from The Man Who album)
6. U2 - 'Love is Blindness' (live from the Stay single)
7. U2 - 'Running to Stand Still' (live from the Dublin: August 28, 1993 bootleg)
8. etc

I doubt these two will still be true in, oh, say 6 months from now.

Speaking of awesome David Bowie duets, how about The Littel Drummer Boy (Bing Crosbie and Bowie) ... one of my fave Christmas songs.

Not for having them, but for having ONLY a best of compilation of them.

Of course, this demands I show my list.

Blondie
Elton John
Joy Division
Randie Newman
Roy Orbison
Otis Redding
Lionel Richie

And if box-sets count too:
Aretha Franklin
Bob Marley
The Police *
Smokie Robinson & The Miracles

* This box-set (Message In A Box) apparently collects 'everything' The Police ever released (apart from their live CD released later and some rare tracks).
