I’m wondering what music Blenderheads listen to. Pointless, but what the heck:
Jimmy Eat World: I own one Jimmy Eat World CD. If you’ve never heard them, you must listen to at least the first three of their tracks on their CD (I don’t know what the title is). “Bleed American” is so rocking; “A Praise Chorus” is really sweet; and “The Middle” is encouraging. All of them rock.
Las Ketchup: Suddenly, I’ve got a feeling my opinions are going to stir controversy. So here’s my advice: Shut up about me. Anyway, “The Ketchup Song” is addictive, but other songs from their album made it an instant addition to my collection.
The Mamas And The Papas: Oldies are fun. I had to hear “California Dreamin’,” so I asked my mom and dad for a collection of songs from them that they’d never used. I instantly added it to my collection as well. Maybe promoting theft isn’t such a good idea.
Vanessa Carlton: How can VK bash her? If modern pianists were a contest… well, I’d vote for her because I’ve never heard many other modern pianists. But still, she’s good, and VK’s claim that he’s probably better than her is arrogant bull.
Michelle Branch: Her first album is so good, I wish my sister would let me listen to her damned copy of the second one. ScottishPig is kind of an idiot when it comes to music by US people, especially Arizona people. (Jimmy Eat World is Arizonan as well. Take that.)
Avril Lavigne: It’s official, there will likely be flames towards me. Guess what? SHE’S GOOD AT SINGING! I don’t really enjoy “Complicated,” either, but I gave her CD a chance and found a dozen other good songs. Try that sometime. It’s kind of amazing what treasure you’d find.
Music My Siblings Have Downloaded: No, that’s not a band, it’s just music left over from when Napster was somewhat legal. There’s lots of goodies, which is good since the folder for it takes up about a gig of computer space! It’s mostly worth it. But there’s too much Disney stuff… :o
ATEENS: A Swedish band of teenagers? Sounds disastrous, especially considering that their first album is a collection of ABBA cover songs. But they’re more appealing to modern teens; ABBA sounds pale in comparison, and I want to get their other CDs, even if they cover Alice Cooper’s “School’s Out” in a pop-esque way. Yikes.
Music I Get At The Library:
Papa Roach’s “Infest.” Yeah, it’s decidedly bleak (they’re a Goth band, or at least that’s what I assume from their black clothes), but some of their songs are really cool.
The Offspring’s “Americana.” I think “Crazy Taxi” made me get this one. No, it wasn’t; it was MTV. But still, there are lots of really cool (and somewhat funny) songs on here.
Song Tracks I Like:
“Can’t Hurry Love.” No, not the Beatle’s “Can’t Buy Me Love,” it’s a different song. Pretty good by Diana Ross & The Supremes.
“Sinner.” Yes, I like some Gothic songs, but this one was in “The One,” how can I resist?
“Bodies.” Same story. Too bad their frontman died; they had promise in these songs.
Okay, I’ve taken up too much space myself. How about you guys?
