Something goofy was going on with this smiley :-[ and the quote code

Yeah, I had some difficulty with that earlier today, with my "Pearl Jam hat" post in the pics to names thread.  Had no idea what I was doing wrong.  Strange.

I have two compilation cds I play a lot. One's full of 80s "modern rock" (??) and the other late-90s "alternative"(??).


As for me, I'm in oldies mode right now.  Some Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, James Brown, The Platters & Drifters, Sam Cooke, etc.

Sadly -- darn me and my fettish for words ending in ly -- not many radio stations play true oldies any more. Instead, their rotation is comprised of 70s and 80s tunes. If demographics studies suggest songs from the 50s and 60s have to be phased out because they don't bring in  revenue stream, fine. Just don't impose the "oldies" label onto the "classic rock" songs of the 70s and 80s.

As far as the Aussie import debate, many of today's children wouldn't be here without the smooth sounds of Air Supply.  :-*

So true.  All these oldies stations (probably because they are owned by maybe one owner) have switched from the classics before my time, to the classics of the far lamer 70's/80's.  Darn demographics. Its probably not even a solid marketing study - just someone's idea that only baby boomers count so we have to switch all programming to that era.  Blah.  Gimme the Four Lads!

Ahh. . .  Air Supply.  My parents listened to their greatest hits cassette when I was growing up, and I hated it.  Still do:





Earlier playing:  Gordon Lightfoot’s “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald”, and some miscellaneous Grateful Dead, along with some (awful, awful) Guns N’ Roses “rarities”.  (All on the same MP3 disc.)

Now playing:  Not a damn thing.

OK...I have only listened to disc 1 so far of Lost Dogs, but i came up with a list of stuff that they could have included as well (especially the Singles and Merkinball stuff):

Angel
Breath
Happy When I'm Crying
I Got ****
Leatherman
Olympic Platinum
State of Love and Trust
The Long Road

And there are a bunch of covers that they have studio recorded that probably wouldn't be on these but they could have included them:

Don't Believe in Christmas
Against the 70's
Can't Help Falling In Love Again
Crazy Mary
Gimme Some Truth
Hunger Strike
Last Soldier
Soldier of Love
Sonic Reducer
You've Got To Hide Your Love Away

Some of the new songs are pretty good, some of them aren't, I watched part of the DVD last night...also some good stuff

Right now I am listening to TTT Soundtrack :-*

Have you checked out CD 2 of Lost Dogs yet, OCB? I found a hidden track after 'Bee Girl' and I don't recognize it, like at all. You have to let the CD keep playing, and when it gets to 6:01 another song starts.

I was hoping for 'Long Road' and 'Crazy Mary' to be on this, but someone didn't think that was kosher, I guess.

I did some digging, and I guess the song's title is '4-20-02', and the song is a tribute to Layne Staley. Guess that's all cleared up for me now.

from what i read online somewhere, that 4-20-02 song is not included on every disc... not sure if that's really true or not. great, now we have variations on cd's too  ::)

I don't think a band like Pearl Jam would pull that stunt on their fans. Who knows, I guess.

Right now, I'm listening to none other than Lionel Richie, sing his immortal classic, "Stuck On You".

Guess I'm on my way. . .

Daaa-yum...what kind of radio stations do they have where you are?

I should have known a commie bastard like you would be into Consolidated, too.  ;)  I'm not familiar with some of those bands, but if "birds of a feather," then I'll have to check them out.

As for me, right now, I've been listening to "Lost Dogs," as well as giving the Dandy Warhols "Welcome to the Monkey House" another shot...but so far I still think it sucks.
