Put that dog in charge of the DJing at a student night, he'd be better than some of the humans :idiot:

Also, Kraftwerk :haha:


I order you to, listen to Bryn Terfel...by order of the people's republik of Weevilonia (formally known as Bristol).

Seriously though Bill Bailey is marvelous isn't he, saw him live in Richmond a few years ago and he did an Englishman, Scotsman, Irishman walked into a pub joke. He said whilst doing a gig in Wales he asked why there are never any Welshmen in those jokes and someone shouted out "because the Welshman is already in the pub." I noticed Commander York from Hyperdrive in the Kraftwerk bit.

The Beatles - Mailman, Bring Me No More Blues
The Beatles - Blue Jay Way
Radiohead - The Gloaming. (Softly Opening Our Mouths In The Cold.)
Gym Class Heroes - Petrified Life And The Twice Told Joke (Decrepit Bricks)
Pamela Wyn Shannon - Just Shy Of Rising Tide [just the main song. I'm not sure why she decided to separate the instrumental intro as a separate track, but that's how it is]
Franz Schubert - Trout Quintet movement 2, performed by Emanuel Axe, Pamela Frank, Yo Yo Ma, Rebecca Young, and Edgar Meyer
AxCx - A song with an offensive title (like most of theirs) that has been omitted
The Rolling Stones - I Go Wild

Today:
The Braindead Monkeys - Why Is This Funny?
They Might Be Giants - Vestibule
Bob Marley and The Wailers - Is This Love
Bob Marley and The Wailers - 400 Years [Jamaican version from Catch A Fire Deluxe Edition]
They Might Be Giants - Ana Ng
Long John Baldry - No More
ZZ Top - Beer Drinkers And Hell Raisers
Paul McCartney - Michelle [from Paul Is Live]
Jimmy Buffett - He Went To Paris [new recording from Meet Me In Margaritaville]
George Harrison - Plug Me In

The Beatles - Besame Mucho [Anthology 1]
Nobuo Uematsu - Airship [from FFXI]
They Might Be Giants - Where Your Eyes Don't Go
Jimmy Buffett - Holiday [Live, new recording from Meet Me In Margaritaville. There are four new recordings on this two-disc compilation. Somehow three of them came up on shuffle close together. I didn't notice until just now because I turned off my MP3 player between each one to do stuff, but it's odd.]

Didn't take you to be a New Order or Kraftwerk fan.
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

Roy Hunter wrote:The Boy, in the spirit of scientific enquiry, got my iPod and randomly selected an album for us all to listen to. The Eagles Greatest Hits.

I had forgotten that, despite all the coke-fuelled, self-indulgent toss-pottery, The Eagles' music is pretty damn good.


I used to like the Eagles until I heard a lyric in one of my Steely Dan records:

Turn up the Eagles the neighbours are listening


Now that could be an ironic reference to the rivalry between the Dan and the Eagles or it could be they just want to obscure the noise of passion which was going on in this particular song.

I still like Desperado.

The Presidents Of The United States Of America's first album, it's really good to have on in the background.

The Weird Al cover of Lump is also pretty good :haha:

Wow. It looks like I killed this thread. Oh well, a little more beating won't hurt it any more.

I'm putting together a Christmas station on pandora.com. It's very frustrating, it keeps trying to put non-Christmas music in there. Anyway, I discovered this Jackson Browne song, Rebel Jesus. I think some of us Venganzites will find it interesting. I haven't decided whether I like it yet, but I'm glad I heard it.

Happy Monkey! :jack:
