    • The Beatles, "Here, There and Everywhere"
    • Emmylou Harris, "Where Will I Be"
    • Simon and Garfunkel, "So Long, Frank Lloyd Wright"

    Good idea! I really have to say tho, its weird the way people get similar or the same ideas on this type of board.

    As to Angelo's list, have to admit I only know 4 of those songs.

    Well, if it's about who I think I am,:b presumptuous as that is to tell people who don't know me, one of my recent mixes

    1. Johnny Strikes Up the Band - Warren Zevon
    2. Like a Rolling Stone - Dylan
    3. Dadada - Trio
    4. Walk of Life - Mark Knopfler
    5. Radio Gaga - Queen
    6. Honky Cat - Elton John
    7. You Speak my Language - Morphine
    8. That's Life - Frank Sinatra
    9. The Joker - Steve Miller
    10. History Repeats - Miss Shirley Bassey with the Propellerheads (sp?)
    11. Twist in My Sobriety - Tanita Tikaram
    12. Abandoned Love - Everly Brothers
    13. Nothing Stays the Same - Percy Mayfield

    I shoulda put "Beginning to See the Light" by VU on it. But that's way too much about me for now, somebody else jump on board the Musical Train!

    (My next list will be my "uplifting" disk mix[​IMG] )

    As part of my crusade to get people everywhere to listen to jazz (slightly successful), accept alternative hip-hop (not very successful) and wake up to modern Marillion (miserable failure):

    Charles Mingus- Better Get Hit in Your Soul
    Marillion- Quartz
    Blackalicious- Green Light
    King Crimson- Level Five
    Opeth- Godheads Lament
    Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers- A Night in Tunisia
    Sonny Rollins- Freedom Suite

    Here's my knee-jerk, uncalculated, schizophrenic response, mostly comprised of modest hits and in no particular order... [think of it as a sampler]

    Chris Rea - The Road to Hell, Part II
    Los Lobos - Wake Up, Dolores
    Paul Simon - Duncan
    Wild Colonials - Charm
    Aimee Mann - Choice in the Matter
    Soul Coughing - Soundtrack to Mary
    Squirrel Nut Zippers - Hell
    X - Because I Do
    Minor Threat - Minor Threat
    Dwight Yoakum - Streets of Bakersfield (the only accordian-inclusive song I can stomach)
    Commander Cody and the Lost Planet Airmen - Hot Rod Lincoln
    U2 - Dancin' Barefoot
    Judas Priest - Green Manalishi with a Two-Prong Crown
    Vladimir Horowitz - Mozart: Sonata No.11, K. 331
    Kingston Trio - E Inu Tatou E

    Mike, if there's space I'm adding Derek Truck's EVERY GOOD BOY. I've had fusion on the brain since the first time I heard Return To Forever, maybe even since I first heard King Crimson in '69...? How much would you pay?[​IMG]

    James: absolutely. Mermaid Avenue Vol. 1 is one of the best records of the '90s, as far as I'm concerned. Brilliant stuff.

    Nothing, because my dear friend Rachael B would burn me a copy. Heh.

    I heard one of Trucks' solo albums. I love his playing, of course, but I was bored by the songs. Can't remember the title of the disk, though...

    03. Time of Our Lives / Paul Van Dyk
    04. You're The Answer / Iris
    05. Love and Death / The Stills
    06. This Place Is A Prison / The Postal Service
    07. What Sound / Lamb

    12. Dance With Me / The Sounds
    13. Sister Saviour / The Rapture
    14. Broken glass / The Gathering
    15. The Game Is Not Over / T.Raumschmiere
    -Feat. Miss Kittin

    Mike, JOYFUL NOISE is the Derek album to get. Some of the earlier ones lack some, agreed. Seems like I read somewhere he got the group a vocalist. I'm intrested in what he does next time out. He's very tallented. Sometimes it seems he's not exactly sure what to do with it??? Best wishes!

    P.S. - Whar does I's sends yer cupy?[​IMG]

    This morning I went ahead and burned volume 2. Sounds great so far except I may have to end up cutting the Killing Joke track for the sake of flow. I'll see how it bad it sticks out first. The whole Strokes thing might be over done for me by now and there's at least a decent chance that their track will get bumped for Manitoba or Four Tet, M83 or...

    jc's Best of 2k3 vol. 2

    01. Wheat / This Rough Magic
    02. The Twilight Babies / Orange & The Alabaster

    07. Sufjan Stevens / For the Widows in Paradise
    08. Cat Power / Free
    09. The Twilight Singers / Decatur St.

    11. The Strokes / You Talk Way Too Much
    12. Black Eyes / Deformative
    13. Hidden Cameras / Ban Marriage
