Feb 2 2012, 17:55 di Selena1995Because today is your lucky day you song The Old Apartment is the track that got you into the 100th club congrats guys!
Mag 31 2009, 17:55 di samkhSo, I made this mix for myself, and all of my friends and followers on Tumblr. In the past when I've made a mix, I've usually typed up a lengthy explanation of my song choices and such... and I'm generally of the belief that, if it ain't broke, don't fix it, so here it is!
(The mix can be downloaded via my tumblr post - here)
01 - Blitzen Trapper - Miss Spiritual Tramp: I love Blitzen Trapper. Their most recent album, Furr, is undoubtedly their best, and I've found that its title track is usually one of the only BT tracks anyone hears. So I've chosen to put two BT songs not on Furr on this mix. Miss Spiritual Tramp is loud, fast, and full of distortions. I can't put my finger on why I love it so much, I just do.
02 - Glasvegas - Geraldine: I was hesitant to give Glasvegas a try, but when one of their songs was featured in the tv show Chuck and I found myself really enjoying it, I figured it was time. And this is what hooked me for good.
Lug 3 2008, 6:05 di MoonlitSeaIf any of you have seen my charts, you'll notice I'm heavily into oldies - rock, pop, alternative, soul, folk, jazz. I'm not exactly known for being a keen listener to modern music, but, thanks to last.fm and due to external influences (Namely friends), I've been able to find some decent (and great) music. Keep in mind that the ranking is of a personal nature and holds nothing against some big bands that are adored. I don't like a lot of pop music, and I don't like the strange simply for being strange. One important fact: I don't like Radiohead.

Dic 1 2007, 15:46 di athenamatAfter remembering how much I love The Trapeze Swinger, I decided to compile a list of some of my favorite lost love songs. You know the heartbreakingly lovely songs about life after love. I'm not breaking up with Sean! Things are great :) These songs are just really pretty. So I am sure I know a million more but I wanted to get some suggestions. Also some of these songs are cheesy, but they fit my theme :)
You Were Right
The Best Offence
Goodbye My Lover
The Old Apartment
What songs do you think of that fit this theme? Comment or shoutbox me! Thanks :)
Giu 14 2007, 0:16 di laura_macThe fourth installment of my occasional series in which I express my often biased and/or underinformed opinions about albums I've bought or acquired and then actually bothered to listen to. (Workin' on that backlog! Only fifty-some-odd albums to review, and counting...)
The Fratellis - Costello Music
If I had my way, I would take away nearly all the Arctic Monkeys' fame and give it to the Fratellis. I like the Arctic Monkeys, but there's something about them I find tiring. Not so with the Fratellis. Their music is inventive, irreverent, and loads and loads of fun without all of the pretentiousness of some of their contemporaries. There's not a weak or repetitive song on this album. Bottom line: easily one of the best things about the U.K. right now.
Favorite song: Whistle for the Choir
Wilco - Sky Blue Sky
Oh, mes amis, je l'adore! I'm not saying this is Wilco's best album--in fact I've never been able to pick a favorite--but I love the direction Jeff Tweedy is taking. …
Mag 8 2007, 7:42 di laura_macOr: A Review of the Portion of the Beale Street Music Festival for Which I Was Present, In Part Copied Directly from My Livejournal, With Some Portions Added and Others Taken Away.
(Giving your writing subtitles is fun)
Sunday was the last day of Memphis in May's Beale Street music festival, and the only day for which I deemed it worthwhile to get a ticket. I go to a concert with my parents about once a year, but usually it's a bit more formal (and likely to be an artist more up their alley, as was the John Fogerty show we went to last summer. Most of the crowd was large groups of local college kids who aren't out of school yet, so it was a bit awkward to be wandering around with my extremely tourist-y looking parents, but I love them so I let it slide.
It had rained earlier in the day and the ground was pretty much soup. I checked out most of Guster's set (good show although I'm not too familiar with their stuff, having only owned Lost and Gone Forever for a brief while and listened to it a couple of times through. …
Apr 2 2007, 9:28 di Ged_UKOn Friday I went to the Hammersmith Apollo (no longer the Carling Apollo) to see the Barenaked Ladies.
I was a little concerned when I saw that the support was Boothby Graffoe. I knew he was a stand-up, and from the stuff i've seen from him over hte years a pretty funny one, but i wasn't sure quite how well he would work as a support. As it turned out, he was excellent. Playing a combination of jokes disguised as songs, as well as some more full length comedy songs (featuring support from some of the band too) he really set the tone for a fun evening; clearly this was not a 'serious' gig! Highlight of the set i guess was Baseball Playing Spider, including audience participation!
So, onto the main act (after an interval accompanied solely by The Crane Wife on shuffle). I don't know much of their stuff, I've got a 20 track complilation CD that Tippex79 put together for me, and of course i knew One Week. I knew that they were a good fun band, didn't take themselves too seriously, so was looking forward to a night of fun.
Mar 31 2007, 16:34 di tippex79So, last night was Fri 30 Mar – Barenaked Ladies, Boothby Graffoe. It was my third time seeing the guys and they were as good as ever.
Support was from stand-up comedian and musician Boothby Graffoe. Stand-up comedians aren't always a good choice as openers for bands but Boothby works well as his mix of comedy and humorous songs fit in well with the main Barenaked Ladies show. It helps that the band seem to enjoy his work and Kevin, Jim and Ed all came out to provide musical support for some of his songs, ensuring a good reception. I think my favourite moment was when a member of the crowd decided to shout out to tell Boothby that he was wearing the same t-shirt as the previous night's gig. Boothby looked at him and said, "Well I'm not following you around...yet!"
Following some enthusiastic crowd singing for the chorus of Baseball Playing Spider, we only had a short break before the ladies came on to a rapturous reception (interestingly filled with some tracks from the latest album from The Decemberists. …
Mar 16 2007, 16:49 di NachiroToday is my 1st year on last.fm, and that's the point what I need to journal something here during my 1st year here.
I listened 26246 tracks totally where I founded new tracks and artists and remember my always important Old Ones. My 10.000 track was Never Say Die and my 20.000 track was Introduce Yourself totally random.
My most heard track is The Die is Castand I don't need to resume that this track is PERFECT. Anyways, the word "perfect" is poor to qualifying this track...
My most heard band is Asia of which I consider myself a real fan since 2002, although I haven't actually listened to them too much. The previous lineup since 1991 get dissolved on 2004 but Anyways they reunited with the Original One of 1981, commemorating their 25 anniversary. I hope they release a new album like the old ones and of course, come to Spain with their incredible tour like they are doing on UK, Mexico, Japan, US, Germany...
My 2nd most heard band is Big Country where their incredible vocalist/musician/composer…
