|Wilco - What Light|
(Jul 06, 2007 - 09:51)
.. the entire cd is just wonderful - well worth owning.
I concur. One of the year's best albums.
|The Cure - 2 Late|
(Jul 03, 2007 - 09:42)
|Wow, I didn't think I'd ever hear that in my life.. Bill just said that "we're gonna pick up the pace with something from The Cure."
You know it was a mellow set when.
|Pink Floyd - Us & Them -> Eclipse|
(Jun 22, 2007 - 13:07)
Eclipse is my favourite Floyd track, out of all the albums and all their songs. I'll never forget a note.
My father used to listen to Dark Side when I was two years old and one of my earliest memories is of me asking for the "long song with the heartbeats" and him proudly saying "Sure!" and playing it for me
I miss him...
Thankfully, sounds like you have great memories.... and some great music to evoke those emotions. :`)
|The Orb - Toxygene|
(Jun 22, 2007 - 12:54)
|I LOVE working from home! Stereo Cranked for this one!
|Aqualung - Strange and Beautiful|
(Jun 22, 2007 - 08:04)
man...I haven't heard this much Vocoder since my wife was listening to the Top 40 station in her car...
I never noticed until you mentioned it. But am I really hearing it now, or just imagining it because i want to hear it, and want not to like it?
|Shriekback - The Underwaterboys|
(Jun 18, 2007 - 11:18)
Sometimes I think I'm the only one on the planet that likes these guys. No body I talk to has ever heard of them.
Awesome!!! Thanks RP!!
I'm with you on this one, Wally. Saw them in concert back in the 80's at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver. They put on an (unlike this song) intense show.
|The Good, The Bad & The Queen - Behind The Sun|
(Jun 12, 2007 - 14:47)
|I first heard these guys on a podcast where they played a live gig in Washington DC. I was immediately intrigued and craved more. The more I listen the more I like. 8
I do chuckle when I hear the criticism of them sounding British or English. Bands like; The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Rolling Stones, Queen, Cream, Oasis (oh I'll get flack for adding them in this list), The Kinks, The Who, Pink Floyd, Genesis, Smiths, and Radiohead do tend to come to mind.
No, I'm not British.
|Beethoven - Für Elise|
(Jun 11, 2007 - 15:40)
|My daughter played this at her piano recital last week. It moved me. That was defiantely my favourite version - this Beethoven character has nothing on her ;-)|
|James Gang - Funk #49|
(May 30, 2007 - 14:49)
Loose! Footloose! Kick off ya Sunday shoose!
Oh No! You didn't!? Yes you did :-( Icant get it outta my head now.
|Tom Petty - Yer So Bad|
(May 24, 2007 - 12:07)
|This tune is a regular request around the campfire. Love it. I caught my 5-year old singing it to herself as she played with her toys the other week.|
|Gabriel Rios - Stay|
(May 22, 2007 - 11:31)
|pop-y, yet understated, catchy, good beat, easy to dance to (Mr Clarke) and I found myself tapping my foot and signing along on the first listen, ergo must be Quite Likeable.|
|Tom Petty - The Golden Rose|
(May 16, 2007 - 14:49)
BTW, why's he saying goodbye to his golden roast? ...
Thanks for the laugh. Except now thats all I hear when he sings.
|The Tragically Hip - Bobcaygeon|
(May 15, 2007 - 07:43)
|The imagery. Love it.
'Til The Men They Couldn't Hang, stepped to the mic and sang.... An alternative country band from the UK. Bill do you have any of them? I saw them at the Town Pump in Vancouver years ago (late 80's?). Big in Europe; here,not so much.
|Dire Straits - Water Of Love|
(May 10, 2007 - 13:20)
I don't think this is all that close to "Sundown," though there is a similarity. However, that's not a bug, it's a feature!
Charge them extra for it!
|The Derek Trucks Band - This Sky|
(May 07, 2007 - 14:04)
Never heard these guys, but would like to hear more.
Once again, RP introduces me to a band I might NEVER have heard on the commercial airwaves!
|J.J. Cale - Crazy Mama|
(Apr 30, 2007 - 15:12)
|That song is too short. I could've listened to a 10 minute jam of that.|
|Social Distortion - Ball And Chain|
(Apr 27, 2007 - 16:17)
How many people here work at desks and listen to RP through computer speakers or headphones? I do. And I wonder how that affects the way I rate songs.
This song, for instance, plays much better in my car with the volume cranked up or at a busy bar. That's how I first heard this song. I love it, so I'm giving it a 9.
But if I were hearing it for the first time right now--on crappy little computer speakers turned way down--I'd give it a 5.
I hear ya. Pun intended. It totally affects you rate songs. You can't hear them at their best.
Luckily, at the moment, I'm working at my home office and able to crank it.
|Kila & Oki - Ni Liom Fein|
(Apr 26, 2007 - 15:51)
your musical knowledge is worthy of admiration bill, and maybe even worship :)
I second that motion
|The The - The Beat(en) Generation|
(Apr 25, 2007 - 11:15)
|There was an "alternative" station (X-FM) in our market that couldn't compete (ha - the gov't wouldnt grant them an FM license to compete) against the Pop-40 stations and they went off the air. This is the last song they played.|
|Rolling Stones - Country Honk|
(Apr 02, 2007 - 10:06)
Recorded on Beale St. in Memphis, TN; Country Honk
makes me smile every time I hear it.
Me Too! rbigelo, I had to log on and comment as soon as I heard it
|The Stone Roses - Love Spreads|
(Sep 07, 2006 - 12:09)
|This album, although fantastic, made me realize just how much i HATE hidden tracks. there was so much dead air on this album that I couldnt place it in my 5-CD carousel on random because it it seemingly never played a tune!|
|Frank Black - Two Spaces|
(Jun 27, 2006 - 08:46)
|Platypus wrote:| Morphine - I Know You (Part III)

ouch. quite the jarring segue there.
let's not do that again.
They did it again! Are they just replaying a previous show?
|Jah Wobble - Visions of You|
(Jun 12, 2006 - 12:58)
|This is one of my favourites - suits many moods, from sunny days with a marg, to sleepy nights, to brooding...|
|The Police - Driven To Tears|
(Jun 09, 2006 - 16:35)
|One of my favourites of all time.
I do belive there is not a single negative post in this thread - And nor am I calling for one!
|Joe Henry - Dead To The World|
(Jun 09, 2006 - 16:25)
I just came to the site to see what this new Blue Rodeo song was... And it's not. But I like it.
Me too! Blue Rodeo meets Dylan
|R.E.M. - Drive|
(Jun 09, 2006 - 15:35)
Haha one of my first CD's ever (not bad for a fifth grader!) brings back some good memories.
Suddenly I feel old.
|Pearl Jam - Inside Job|
(Jun 09, 2006 - 13:28)
What a random album cover. Wonder why an avocado.
Random thoughts as to why an avocado:
The fruit is a symbol of love and lust. Or perhaps it has something to do with this song title "Inside Job." The pit of the avocado could symbolize the seed in the womb. Or if you're not a fan of the band it could have something to do with pits.
|Jason Collett - Hangover Days|
(Jun 08, 2006 - 15:04)
|This is why you listen to RP; To hear that catchy tune from an artist you've never heard before... (and then of course use RP's links to go buy it) |
|Rheostatics - P.I.N.|
(May 15, 2006 - 21:29)
|Please add more tunes from the Rheostatics to your playlist. Check out their latest album - "2067" and tunes like "Making Progress" "Try To Praise This Mutilated World" and "Little Bird, Little Bird"
|Neil Young - Looking For A Leader|
(May 15, 2006 - 21:17)
Kinda makes you wonder where neil was when the dixie chicks were expressing the same sentiment. Guess he had to wait until the political winds were blowing his way.
Neil is dumb like a fox. Streaming it for free because his anti-government sentiment wouldnt be accepted? B.S. A great way to create a buzz, is all.
|U2 - I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For|
(May 15, 2006 - 21:15)
|I Get It!
I couldn't figure out how people were posting so quickly. The song just started. I click on the title and BOOM 47 posts! Wow, I figure there must be a competition to see who can post the fastest.
Then I sees the dates. These are posts over the past 3 years! Ahhha the lightbulb turns on.
And not only am I slow to figure it out, but dumb enough to write it down. And press submit
