I once fell in love with U2's "War". Passion faded away but one of these days we made out for the sake of old times, and it was cool.

I recently found a mixed tape I made back in high school. It was a little terrifying. I probably almost deserve the inevitable infliction of Justin Bieber (or something similarly horrifying) in a few years when my girls reach tweenhood.

Ths is so true.
I hate Tom Waits, though.

Jambe said...

The Waits-Hater must be banned forevermore.

Grant said...

Waits-haters should not be banned. They should be converted!

Having just recently discovered Tom Waits, I'm glad I did.

Fantastic post btw.

Joni Mitchell's 'Blue'; indeed, all of her early albums, are easily accessible, certainly as much so as others you've mentioned here. Don's waste any more time.

Don't be put off by Steve Reich. I was first played Music for 18 Musicians as a teenager back in the 80s and loved it. Then at college I heard a live performance of Tehillim, and a bit later was lucky enough to see one of the first performances of City Life in the UK - Steve Reich gave a pre-concert talk and is a really great bloke.

piratestan: "Blue" is my favorite Joni record, with "Hejira" a close second. I'm actually not scared to approach her music :)

Colin Reed: I enjoy most of the Steve Reich recordings I have, but I don't really grasp the theory behind his compositions (phase shifting, etc.). I would kill to see a live performance of a Reich piece, though.

How anyone could ever hate Tom Waits is truly beyond me.
