Well, lemme reach over to the turntable and see what LPs I haven’t put away yet:

– Flashdance soundtrack

– Steve Martin “Wild and Crazy Guy” (“King Tut”)

– Steve Martin “Let’s Get Small” (“Grandmother’s Song”)

– Carole King, “Tapestry”

– Carly Simon, “Hotcakes”

– Neil Diamond “Double Gold” (contains his original of “I’m a Believer”)

– Neil Diamond “September Morn” (contains his 1979 “I’m a Believer”)

– Tom Lehrer, “That Was the Year That Was”

– Klaatu (from whence came the tune “Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft”)

– Carpenters, “Passage” (containing their remake)

I somewhat pity the current generation. I don’t know how you are going to preserve the bizarre, off-beat tunes that don’t make it to the mainstream. Those iPods aren’t going to last forever. Have you ever heard the John Biggs tune, “Send Me to Glory in a Glad Bag”? Or Frank Sinatra’s self-parody of “High Hopes” for JFK’s 1960 election campaign? I got ’em both on a 45.

Oh MAN! This is a great thread :) According to Last.fm, I’ve been listening to copious amounts of the following:

Wolf Parade

Broken Social Scene

Sam Cooke

The Clash

Unfortunately you can’t scrobble vinyl (YET!), so those results are a bit skewed. I’m still proud as ever to admit to listening to Jesus Christ Superstar WAY TOO MUCH. If you’re into racing bikes and rock operas, I hear it’s excellent pre and post-race jams.

Given how electronic memory is progressing, I expect that the next generation of personal listening device will contain copies of every commercial recording that has ever been released. I imagine there isn’t more than a billion of them, now. I expect no more than a few billion a decade from now.

also, the thing with digital music is that the data isn’t stuck on one physical device. when your ipod/phone/computer/etc reaches the end of its life the data just moves somewhere else. i have probably been through at least 8 ipods/iphones over the last decade and easily 10 computers between desktops, laptops, home and work. i still have all the music that was on every single one of those devices, and it is still the exact same quality it was the day i bought it (yes i buy 95% of the music i own, the other 5% was given to me by friends to check out and has generally led to many more purchases)

@sloaps; have you seen Endless Summer II? What a hoot! Also, did you see the Arsenal Pool Party on Saturday has a surf theme? 6 until after dark, Leslie Park (empty) pool off Butler Street in Lawrenceville. Crap, now I have to click on your link and start dreaming…..

I just saw that the Iguanas are playing at the Blues Festival on Friday night at 7 p.m. I might have to skip the FOC ride to see them. I love the Iguana’s old stuff. They are described as Jimmy Buffett-ish, but I don’t see a lot of resemblence. A little more indie-ish than Buffett, and not so cheesy commercial. Admission to the Blues Festival is free on Friday with a donation of a bag of goods to the food pantry.

Honey, we came to dance with the girls

With the stars in their eyes

Do the jump back jack

Stop and slide to the right

Never break their hearts,

Never make them cry, come on

Honey, strike up the band

Play a song that everybody knows

If I’m not your kind

Then don’t tell a soul

I’m not the one who hates being alone, so come on

Brian Fallon is the most beautiful man I’ve ever seen in my life.

There’s a lot of videos, but it was really tough to pick so few. Every song is just so amazing.

I had all kinds of fun introducing Stef to Otis Redding’s original versions of many of the songs others have covered last year. She had never heard anything of his other than (Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay
