What in the CD player

I drive to work every day and every week need to 'refresh' my car CD. Some things stay there for a week and then disappear never to be seen again, some make a fleeting return, but those that return after more than a year out have definitely stood the test of time. So new thread for this week is whats in the CD any why?:

1. Lacuna Coil - New band (Italian heavy gothic rock) discovered just bought their first cd - second (??).
2. Nightwish - "Wishmaster" (Sorry more gothic rock, this time Norwegian - I think)
3. U2 - "All that you can't leave behind". Making a reappearenace this week after more than a year out - truely excellent.
4. Metallica - "Load" When you just need to let off some steam PLAY LOUD.
5. Alanis Morisette - "Jagged Little Pill". Excellent feminine angst.
6. Def Lappard "X" - sing-a-long-a-rock

    And I'll be off to pick up the new Napalm Death album from those lovely people at HMV at some point in the next couple of days, so that'll get added to the list too...
  • Gavo, I know what you meen about ryan Adams, I bought it some time back and it took ages to get into.
  • I'm more of a radio person on my daily commute - normally listen to virgin radio – they play my sort of music

    But for a longer journey I like things to sing a long too (which can be a bit scary) include

    Dire Straights – Brothers in arm
    Prince – Purple Rain
    Meatloaf – bat out of hell
    David Bowie – a compilation (don’t know title)
  • and I thought I was a dinosaur Will!
  • WildWill - I will get really scared if you tell me you know all the words to bat out of hell from start to finish.

  • GavoGavo ✭✭✭
    Don't do song lyrics again - the Tiffany stuff scared me enough.
  • Sisters of Mercy - A slight Case of Overbombing - thumping stuff to run to -esp. for our Goth friends...
  • SD

    It just it takes be quite some time to learn the lyrics - If I’m just listening I like the Chilli Peppers, Pink and so on

    But when it comes to the old karaoke I go back to things like:

    Tell Laura
    House of the rising sun
    Blueberry hill
    Rind stone cowboy

    So yeh – you probably right, I’m a bit of a dinosaur
  • my current 6 are
    2 Linkin Park albums
    A slight case of overbombing by the sisters of mercy
    the fat of the land by Prodigy
    War by U2
    and Songs of faith and devotion by Depeche Mode

    think I've regressed a good few years for the most part there!

  • MartinH - what's wrong with knowing all the words to "Bat Out Of Hell"???

    If you like oldies with a difference, I can heartily recommend Me First and The Gimme Gimmes, as I nearly always have at least one of their CDs in the car. They do "proper" oldies in a punk stylee. Like "Seasons in the Sun", "Nobody Does It Better", "Me and Julio Down By The Schoolyard", "Don't Cry For Me Argentina", "Who Put The Bomp", "My Favourite Things". Actually, one of their albums ("...Are A Drag") is a whole album of showtunes - fantastic!
  • Normal selection includes:-

    Rod Stewart
    James Taylor
    Alanis Morisette
    Avril Lavigne
    Artful Dodger
    Donnell Jones
    Stacey Kent (real cool jazz)
  • Chet Baker
    Club Tropicana
    Old Skool
    David Gray
    Ministry Of Sound (millennium edition)
  • Who Put The Bomp! - punk style - scary

  • Gaz - "Set This Circus Down" - I was undecided as to whether to ask for this or "Everywhere" for Christmas: do you have "Everywhere" and which do you think is the better album?

    Did you see the CMA Awards on Saturday night? Don't you just want to smack Toby Keith?
  • Gaz.Gaz. ✭✭✭
    Mr A, I have not Heard Everywhere, sorry, but I do like Set This Circus Down, and yes I saw the CMAs, Brilliant show, Pointed boot up the backside to Toby Keith........

    How about Alan Jackson........I have two of his albums, great........
  • To start a run:

    Mid section pain:

    End extreme pain and hating every inch:
    Propaghandi (hard core Canadian punk)

    The wonders of modern technology!

  • Ah, "Drive" is already on the Crimbo list, as is "New Favorite" by Alison Krauss and Union Station, and "Golden Road" by Keith Urban. And I'm opting for "Greatest Hits" by Martina McBride as an easy way in.

    Every year I watch the CMAs, and every year I compile a list and never get round to it, buying Hheavy metal CDs instead. This year, I'm finally going to get buying - I have all the Faith Hills now, and have made a start on Tim McGraw....

    I don't suppose you understand what the Horizons Award is all about? I thought it was like a "Best Newcomer" kind of thing, but then one of this year's artists had been nominated before?

  • Gaz.Gaz. ✭✭✭
    Mr A,
    not too sure about the Horizon award.

    Its nice to find another country fan.

    I was in Arizona last year and they had a western karioke in a bar at the side of the motel, it was absolutley fantastic all the locals were there, they were just as good as the professional singers....

    Do you like New Country ?
  • Aretha Franklin Greatest Hits
    Sinatra - Best of vol 2
