Dug into a box last night and found "Just Say Mao", the third volume of Sire's music sampler series. Man, Sire had a great artist stable back in the day. Heck, even Ice-T's rap track is intelligent and melodic enough to avoid the skip button. My personal pick for best track:
"Dizzy" by Throwing Muses

edit- but the song I've been whistling all day (semi-appropriate, I suppose) is:
"Whistling for His Love" by Danielle Dax

Found a great pub-rock band - Airbourne… There's a great future ahead of these guys, I'm sure…

Mixture of AC/DC and UFO… brilliant

I feel like I could… like I could… TAKE ON THE WORLD!!!

Empty Glass by Pete Townshend - while 'Let My Love Open the Door' was on the radio so much 27 years ago that I am *still* tired of hearing it, that was never my favorite song, and the rest is so wonderful that I can forgive that one …

I'm going through the 'Star Wars Faves' playlist on my iPod. Up to 'Empire Strikes Back' … great stuff. My '10th Anniversary Run' of Jedi Knight put me in the mood.

During a business trip, I spun:
Depeche Mode "Black Celebration"
Ether Aura "Before We Could Sing"
Evenescence "Fallen"

I think my position on Ether Aura is well documented here, but it's holding up with time.

Whew … finished up my 2+ days of Star Wars music … looked at the KotOR playlist and thought … not today, Zurg …

Steve Vai came up in another thread, so in honor of that I'm now listening to Zappa's You Are What You Is

I never gave Joshua Tree a chance. It was far too popular for me back in the day, and Bono had completed his transformation from great musician to pretentious bastard. I probably ought to give it another try some day. It might fall into my "revisionist history" category like a few other bands have.

For me, Delays' "Faded Seaside Glamour" cd. Don't know that I've ever heard a cd with such a strong first three tracks. The rest of the cd is excellent as well, but the opening just floors ya.

My wife remains a huge U2 fan, and while I stopped liking Bono ages ago Joshua Tree has some really good tunes on there. It helps, perhaps, that I don't listen to words as a general rule … just the musical effect of the singer. This one still works for me, but their later stuff is weak-sauce and my 'How to Dismantle' they were completely useless in every regard.

Thank you for this. I've been trying without success to put that thought into words for a long time ("incidental lyrics" are very common to shoegaze).

I don't know that I can lose Bono in the mix, though. Some comedian on Bob and Tom had a bit imitating Bono singing "Bingo" (there was a farmer who had a dog…) that's now inseperable from the real guy for me.
