1 Marvin Gaye - What's Goin' on
With What's Going On, Gaye meditated on what had happened to the American dream of the past -- as it related to urban decay, environmental woes, military turbulence, police brutality, unemployment, and poverty. These feelings had been bubbling up between 1967 and 1970, during which he felt increasingly caged by Motown's behind-the-times hit machine and restrained from expressing himself seriously through his music. Finally, late in 1970, Gaye decided to record a song that the Four Tops' Obie Benson had brought him, "What's Going On". When Berry Gordy decided not to issue the single, deeming it uncommercial, Gaye refused to record any more material until he relented. Confirmed by its tremendous commercial success in January 1971, he recorded the rest of the album over ten days in March, and Motown released it in late May. Besides cementing Marvin Gaye as one of the most important artists in pop music…
9 feb 2009, 19:03 av darren86The following are the top 10 albums of 2005 that I currently own. I probably own more than 10 albums from that year, but these are my favourites.
Note 1: I will be including compilations, live albums, ep's, re-issues etc, but no singles.
Note 2: If I do only own 10 from this year, the releases towards the end of the list may not be favourites of mine at all, but the best I do have from that year.
Note 3: If you think my list sucks, or needs improvements, please feel free to RECOMMEND me albums from 2005 and I will certaintly try to listen to them and give my opinions.
All comments welcome.
1. Curtain Call - The Hits
I now own all of Eminem's studio albums and this. I am not a big fan of the genre but in my opinion all anyone needs from Eminem is The Marshall Mathers LP and this compilation. All of his studio albums (with the exception of 'The Marshall Mathers LP') are pretty weak, with a few great songs thrown in between all the bad stuff. So here, you get all those greats, without having to skip through filler. …
7 dec 2008, 16:56 av nowheregirl81As it's almost the 28th anniversary of John Lennon's death and I've been listening to his music a lot this week (even more than usual, that is) I thought it would be a good time to post my top 10 favourite John Lennon solo songs. So here they are, counting down from #10 to #1.
10. (Just Like) Starting Over
This was the perfect song to open the Double Fantasy album and mark the beginning of his comeback in 1980. I love the vocals and the 50s feel, though it always make me feel sad to hear him sounding so positive about the future considering what would happen just a few months later.
9. Oh Yoko!
Until a few months ago this song would never have made it into my top 10 but I recently 'rediscovered' it and now it's one of my favourites. A simple love song about John's feelings for Yoko, it has a very catchy and uplifting melody. The harmonica is great too.
8. Instant Karma
Instant Karma was recorded the same day it was written, and then released as a single only 10 days later. …
26 jun 2008, 00:49 av ZeppledelinWell, I finally succumbed and did one of these playlist-shuffle-quiz-things. Shame on me. At least I won't try to blame it on boredom or throw in some other bad excuses that everyone here seems to do when answering these things. I'm actually not that bored, and not even drunk. I take the full responsibility.
1. How does the world see me?
Gary Moore - Nothing to Lose – Nothing to lose by having me here. I agree.
2. Will I have a happy life?
Lynyrd Skynyrd - I Ain't the One – Damn.
3. What does my friends really think of me?
The Animals - How You've Changed - Have I?
4. Do people secretly lust after me?
The Brian Jonestown Massacre - Miss June '75 - Had no idea she even liked me. Great.
5. How can I make myself happy?
Tom Waits - In The Colosseum - No thanks.
6. What should I do with my life?
Turbonegro - I Got Erection - Not exactly what I want to spend the rest of my life doing.
7. Will I ever have children?
20 feb 2008, 19:49 av cloudy_skiesBecause I have literally nothing else to write about. I will have a cool essay soon, I promise!
(The format for this entry was stolen from MetallicaACDC.)
1. I've been listening to my Ramones records a lot. A lot a lot. In the past month they've gone from around number 25 to number 12 on my charts. If this keeps up they might even get into the top 10! That doesn't bother me, because I LOVE the Ramones and I think they are the greatest punk rock band ever. The only problem I have is that I'm worried I will burn out on them, like I did with The Beatles for a while.
2. For the longest time, I used to hate Bob Dylan's album Blood on the Tracks and I had no idea why everyone said it was their favorite. But I was listening to it one dark night and everything just clicked. All of the songs are just beautiful, and as cheesy as this sounds, they deep down into your soul. If you ever feel like complete shit, listen to that record.
3. Which song is better? Mother by John Lennon, Mother by Pink Floyd, or Mother by Danzig. …
16 nov 2007, 20:18 av HendrixFan42There are just some songs that just emotionally resonate with us. Whether it has heartbreaking lyrics, a relatable subject or even just the way the lyrics are sung. Here's a personal list of 11 songs that move me every time I hear them.
(2nd Draft: Edited 11/16/07 7:41 PM)
11.)Mother John Lennon is one of my all time favorite singer/songwriters and he could sing "Happy Birthday" and I would be moved. But his first official solo album after the avant garde Two Virgins and The Wedding Album is on a whole other level. The rawness of the vocals and lyrics on the entire album are stunning. The opening song, Mother, starts out with clanging bells, and Lennon singing "Mother you had me, but I didn't have you..." It's an extremely emotional song, which becomes even more urgent with his cries of "Mama don't go! Daddy come home!"
10.)Everybody's Gotta Learn Sometimes This song has relatively few lyrics, and the subject is simple butBeck's delivery is so amazing that it becomes very moving. …

Ok, time for another album of the week. This time I finally decided to write something on an album that has haunted me for the last couple of weeks, an album that has been the root to an extreme obsession, and has possibly become my all-time favorite album. I am speaking of John Lennon’s first solo outing; PLASTIC ONO BAND.
After having broken up with The Beatles, Lennon went into something called ‘primal scream therapy’, where he basically learned to stand up to and face his fears and thoughts that had been haunting him since childhood, most noticeable in the album is the death of his mother.
The album opens with the song “Mother”. After several seconds of nothing but church bells and silence, then Lennon shouts “Mother” and music follows. This is not like any Beatles recording, much of the music is sombre and dark, as well as sparse and simple. Lennon decided to only use a three-man band…
