Exposing Myself in Hopes of Reciprocation
I always love looking through other people's CD collections, it's loke looking into their soul. I'd like to know more about the musical preferences (and therefore the inner workings) of the LYMA crew. I think it would be interesting to find out what you all listen to after a year or so of reading your posts, it might also be a good way to discover and share the bands you all like. I wanted to start with my favorite song, but as I retrospectively search my soul (AKA ipod) I can't really pick one, there are too many and it changes daily. But never fear, I thought of another good way to share, I think that if I narrow it down topically I might be able to pick one.
For example, the best song with a girls name in the title is Visions of Johanna by Bob Dylan.
The best song with the name of a girl named Jane in the title is Sweet Jane by Lou Reed (closely followed by Jane Says by Janes Addiction).
The best song ever about friendship is With a Little Help From My Friends (the Joe Cocker version that is on the opening of the wonder years, not the a little too peppy Ringo Starr version).
The best song ever about lesbians is Same Old Situation by Motley Crew. The best song ever about songs is Radio by Rancid (or is it Let it Play by Poison).
The best song ever about war is For Whom the Bell Tolls by Metallica (barely edging out their othe classic One, which reminds me, the best song ever called One is One by Metallica, not that blaphemous steaming piece by that other band).
The best song ever about alcohol is Beer by Reel Big Fish.
The best song ever about eyes is Pale Blue Eyes by the Velvet Underground, Van Morrison's brown eyed girl is close, but he does sing the best song ever about a transvestite, Madame George, and the most romantic song ever, Sweet Thing (or Crazy Love, I can't decide).
The best song ever about suicide is a three way tie between GnR's Estranged, Metallica's Fade to Black, and Suicide is Painless (the theme to MASH).
Like a Rolling Stone is the best song ever about someone getting what's coming to them.
I could go on for a while, but let's hear yours, feel free to disagree or make your own categories, or just enjoy my fantastic list.
