I’m planning on posting a new set of articles on my favourite music. This may be a particular album or cd, or an artist in general, or possibly even an individual song. I’ll probably start with some of the albums that I listened to repeatedly when I was younger and then move into more recent material.
I like a large range of music, everything from Classic Rock, to 80’s New Wave, to Folk and just about everything in between. I’m not a fan of hard core Heavy Metal, Country, Opera or Classical but even with those there are exceptions.
I’ve got a large enough CD collection that I spent a few years when I was younger as a DJ, doing staff parties, weddings and things like that. And I actually had a larger collection of Cassette tapes than I had of CD’s.
In fact, I still have a large collect of tapes that I’m slowly ripping to ITunes. Strangely enough I’ve got quite a few that don’t seem to be available in CD format or on ITunes. Or, they just aren’t quite good enough to buy a new copy of, but not quite bad enough to just throw out.
Some of the CDs and artists that I’m planning to write about (in no particular order) are:
- Meatloaf – Bat Out of Hell
- Beatles – Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band
- Adam & The Ants – Prince Charming (and others)
- Tears for Fears – The Hurting / Songs from the Big Chair
- Duran Duran – Rio (and others)
- Dire Straits – Love Over Gold
- Queen – Greatest Hits (Classic Queen)
- The Police – Synchronicity
- Peter Schilling – Error in the System
- Dave Carter and Tracy Grammer
- Fred Eaglesmith
- Kate Bush
- Doug & the Slugs
- New Order
As a bit of an aside, one of the things I’d like to do at some point is figure out how many of the Rolling Stone Magazines Top 500 albums I actually own. I can say that I’ve got four out of the top ten, all of the Beatles albums 🙂
But, that’s it for the moment, back to doing school work, less than three weeks left!
