  1. Soft Boys - Underwater Moonlight Continuing my trek through the 80's.
  2. What are these like? I just read their bio on All Music Guide and still have no idea what it might sound like.
  3. The dBs - Stands For Decibels After the 80's thread, I am going back through a bunch of albums from that decade that I haven't listened to in a while.
  4. That sounds cool. You can send the mp3 to your phone via text message, is that right?
  5. AMG and Amazon have it listed as "Original Release Date: May 2, 1989." All the Cure you mention are excellent too but I think Disintegration is my favorite of theirs.
  6. If I had to say, I guess the 80's represents the smallest fraction of my music collection. I started wondering if it was a weak decade as decades go or just me missing out on a lot of good stuff, so I made a list of my favorite bands/albums: Pixies – Doolittle Bruce Springsteen – Nebraska The Cure – Disintegration The Stone Roses – The Stone Roses Paul Simon – Graceland R.E.M. – Document Tom Waits – Swordfishtrobomes Richard Thompson – Shoot Out the Lights The Waterboys – Fisherman's Blues The Smiths – Strangeways, Here We Come Prince – Sign 'O' The Times The Feelies - Crazy Rhythms Talking
  7. Donovan - Troubadour: The Definitive Collection 1964-1976
  8. Clinic - Internal Wrangler It's bad when you can't even remember downloading something, but I have no idea why this is on my computer or who this is. Sounds ok so far though.
  9. The Hold Steady - Boys And Girls In America
  10. My ranking would be: If You're Feeling Sinister Tigermilk The Boy With the Arab Strap Dear Catastrophe Waitress Sinister is one of my all time favorites as well.
  11. "Tennessee DT Albert Haynesworth has been suspended without pay for five games for stomping on the head of the Cowboys' Andre Gurode, the NFL announced. It's the longest suspension ever for onfield conduct."
  12. My Morning Jacket - Okonokos I was never completely won over by these guys until Z (I know I'm in the minority here), but Okonokos is certain to become my favorite of theirs.
  13. The Hold Steady - Boys And Girls In America I have really disliked these guys in the past despite their hype around here, but this is making me want to revisit those earlier albums.
  14. Tea for One was never performed live by the full band. I just checked "The Complete Guide to Music of Led Zeppelin" to confirm. This is true for most of the songs off Presence. Great song though.
  15. I totally forgot about Steinbeck - Of Mice and Men. I've read that so many times. I love short books that are just fabulous. But I also love long books that are fabulous.
  16. John Irving - The World According to Garp John Irving - A Prayer For Owen Meany F. Scott Fitzgerald - The Great Gatsby Ernest Hemingway - A Farewell to Arms Raymond Carver - What We Talk About When We Talk About Love William Kennedy - Ironweed
  17. I think it's a real return to form. Become the Enemy is a contender for song of the year. It won't top their prime stuff or my albums of the year, but it's getting a lot of play lately.
  18. Second time through now. Sounds like a Pernice Brothers album. It always takes me a couple of listens, but I like it so far.
  19. I wanted to put Sam Bean on there. I could see him being on my list with a few more albums.
  20. I prefer Waits 80s stuff, which explains why I forgot about all those earlier records. Some good albums (with some amazing songs) but nothing I like as much as the Swordfishtrobones-era albums.
  21. Yeah, I totally forgot about all those albums Waits did pre-1980. If Costello isn't eligible, Waits wouldn't be either. I went back and forth with Frank Black and left him off because while I love the Pixies, it's not his songwriting that does it. I would also probably add Robert Smith and Thom Yorke. Does Yorke handle all the lyrics for Radiohead? If so, then definitely him just for Bends and OK Computer alone.
