This is why in Music…[UPDATED]

Even though many of the albums on the list are not my cup of tea, I do enjoy coming across something I thought wasn’t my cup of tea only to find I like it.

Today that was…

#146 In a Silent Way – Miles Davis.    Didn’t think I’d like Miles Davis.  I liked this album quite a bit.

On the other hand, yesterday’s

#130 Scott 2 – Scott Walker

made me want to quit this list and walk into traffic.  Ugh.  Seriously, someone paid to have him included.

Sadly, I know

#171 Scott 4 – Scott Walker, is coming up.

I also know I have a Bee Gees double album to knock out today.  I think that’ll have to be background music while I drive out to watch my wife’s hockey game tonight.

#147 Odessa – Bee Gees [UPDATE:  Lesson learned again.  That was amazing.  Really enjoyed it]



Today in Music…cleaning up

I’m circling back around and picking up some albums I skipped.  I skipped them mostly because I don’t like that kind of music.  The problem with that method is now I have hours of music I don’t like to get through.  Yeah, jazz, I’m talking to you.

#33 Jazz Samba – Getz and Bird

#41 Getz/Gilberto – Stan Getz & Joao Gilberto

#43 – Olympia ’64 – Jacques Brel (no, no, no.  How the heck did this get on the list?)

#53  A Love Supreme – John Coltrane

#56  Bert Jansch – Bert Jansch (folk)

#62 Fred Neil – Fred Neil (more folk) (this could’ve been yesterday, they all blend after awhile)

#77 Chelsea Girl – Nico

#92 – Francis Albert Sinatra & Antonio Carlos Jobim – Sinatra & Jobim

#99 – I’m a Lonesome Fugitive – Merle Haggard

#103 – Call of the Valley – Shivkumar Sharma

#106 – I Never Loved a Man the Way I Love You – Aretha Franklin (finally!)

#116 – Eli and the Thirteenth Confession – Laura Nyro

433/1001

 



Last few days in triple number music…

Still working on that list.  It’s getting to be a chore because I’m just not into Judas Priest, Yes and some others I’ve been forced (yes, forced!) to listen to.  Like almost every single one of the below albums.  I can’t wait until Festivus, because I have a serious bone to pick with the guy that created this list of 1001 Albums.

Today I decided on a theme for the last few days.  It’s not all that brilliant.  Triple numbers.  I don’t even think that’s a theme.  The theme would probably be “music I’m least likely to enjoy.”

#111 The Sounds of India – Ravi Shankar (not my cup of chai.  Maybe I wasn’t stoned enough and living in a hippie commune in the 60′s…plus, every song sounded exactly the same)

#222- Coat of Many Colors – Dolly Parton.  (Don’t care who knows it, I love me some Dolly Parton…the music and the lady)

#333 – Young Americans – David Bowie (sorry, never like Bowie)

#444 – Rust Never Sleeps – Neil Young (see Bowie but search/replace with Neil Young)

#555 – Suzanne Vega – Suzanne Vega (this day is KILLING me)

#666 – World Clique – Deee-Lite (I am this/fucking/close to quitting this challenge)

#777 – The Holy Bible – Manic Street Preachers (finally, something I like)

#888 – I already listened to this.

#999 – Vulnicura – Bjork (uncle. Un-fucking-cle)

This makes 410/1001
