So between Heavy metal music, Yoko Ono and Bob Dylan, plus the stuff about the 80's on WIGO-CP, we've been talking music lately. What do you listen to, Rat-wikians? If you could only own ten CD titles, what would they be?

TheoryOfPractice

  1. Miles Davis The Complete Live at the Plugged Nickel 1965
  2. Ornette Coleman Beauty is a Rare Thing
  3. Bob Dylan Blood on the Tracks
  4. Frank Zappa Shut Up and Play Your Guitar
  5. Bill Evans The Complete Village Vanguard Recordings 1961
  6. Charlie Parker the Complete Savoy Sessions
  7. John Coltrane The Heavyweight Champion
  8. Glen Gould Bach Preludes, Fughettas and Fugues
  9. Clifford Brown The Complete Blue Note-Pacific Jazz Recordings
  10. Duke Ellington Live at Newport 1958

In no particular order, and with minimal thought

  • Catch-a-Fire -Bob Marley and the Wailers
  • Rubber Soul - the Beatles
  • Working Man's Dead -Grateful Dead
  • Little Richard's Greatest Hits
  • Best of the Everly Brothers (2 CD set)
  • Hitsville USA (best of Motown), vol 1
  • the Complete Stax-Volt vol 2 or 3 (depending on the phase of the moon)
  • the Do-Wop Box set - probably vol. 2, but . . ....
  • Essential Willie Nelson (2 CDs)
  • the Paul Butterfield Blues Band

Irrational Atheist

  • The Afghan Whigs Black Love
  • Bôa The Race of a Thousand Camels
  • Faith No More The Real Thing
  • Nine Inch Nails With Teeth
  • Nirvana Nirvana
  • Pavement Crooked Rain, Crooked Rain
  • Pearl Jam Ten
  • Possum Dixon Possum Dixon
  • R.E.M. In Time
  • Skinny Puppy Too Dark Park

I would retain a box-set of the works of G.F. Handel, viz.:

  1. Alexander's Feast
  2. Israel in Egypt
  3. Judas Maccabaeus
  4. Messiah
  5. Ode for St. Cecilia's Day
  6. The Choice of Hercules

Toast

Very Difficult but out of about 5000, allowing only one per artist:

(in order of pretentiousness)
  1. Edvard Grieg: Peer Gynt, In the Hall of the Mountain King
  2. JSB: Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565
  3. KT Tunstall: Black Horse and the Cherry Tree
  4. The Rolling Stones: Paint It Black or Little Red Rooster
  5. The Pogues featuring Kirsty MacColl: Fairytale of New York
  6. The Lovin' Spoonful: Summer in the City
  7. The Beatles: Norwegian Wood
  8. Led Zeppelin: Stairway to Heaven
  9. Lou Reed: Walk on the Wild Side
  10. Beach Boys: Anything from Pet Sounds but if pressed: Wouldn't it Be Nice

But I'd ditch 'em all for:

Sinéad O'Connor: Nothing Compares 2 U

Don't know the names, but here are the sounds I'd like to here:

  1. wolves howling with a bit of Bach mixed in
  2. the sound of a meadow at night
  3. the sound of a rainforest at night
  4. tree frog calls
  5. the sound of dolphins and whales
  6. the sound of songbirds in a temperate forest with some ambience
  7. the sound of savannah songbirds mixed with African drum music
  8. rapidly, osscilating, high freqeuncy rythems
  9. the sound of cats purring
  10. the sound of the Colbert Report

But I'd give them all up for a magazine subscription, a two-way radio, and the New York Times. With a Danish. Or, a cat.
