    The last song I was seriously listening to was 'The Sound Of White' by Australian Missy Higgins. I love it. :D

    The last song my cd player played last night was a live version of Grace Is Gone by the Dave Matthews Band. It was recorded at Fenway Park in Boston.

    Under the Gun by the Killers. Great song, not well known, on the limited edition version of Hot Fuss.

    Great band and a great track, although it's Fun Lovin' Criminals

    My fav at the moment is Casino Royale by Adventures Of Parsley - seriously good and seriously cheesy :D

    It's from the greatest hits CD so I assume it is at a studio. Plus it sounds like it's not live.

    If your open to suggestions I'd like to recommend to you Guns & Roses Live era 87-93. Awesome live versions of GnRs best songs inclucing November Rain. My only complaint about the greatest hits CD is Estranged isn't on it. You can't have a best of album without the Estranged, Don't Cry, November Rain trilogy.

    Listening to Uriah Heep. These albums came out around the year I was born, which puts off some people who only like new stuff, but they're more then great and still relevant to me. In fact more so.

    "Come Away Melinda", an accoustical song obviously written with Vietnam in mind, has this strange power over me. It's a tearjerker that places one in a state of melancholy.

    Don't really keep up with the new music scene, though one song I keep hearing at work is Weird Al's new "White And Nerdy" track. On the initial hearing, I thought he was saying "Dirty" and was disappointed when learning the actual line.

    The song I am listening to can be heard by clicking on the link below, then scroll down to Dastardly & Muttley on their Flying Machines Theme.

    It may sound a bit jerky, but only on first play.

    Should have been the Moonraker theme tune. :D

    I made up a Xmas tape for the folks to listen to.

    On it I had Knock on Wood (Casablanca), Sugar plum Fairy (Nut Cracker). Over The Rainbow (Wiz of Oz), Journey to Blofeld's Hideout (OHMSS), a couple of Elliot Smith songs including Miss Misery, We Have All The Time in The World (Armstrong), that Prokofiev piece and Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas (Garland again, hmm a bit worrying).

    Anyway, the songs all did become a bit miserable towards the end...

    Lol. I'm sure you'll be forgiven.
    Currently I am hopefully nearing the end of several hours struggle with my new iPod. My dad was frustrated beyond belief but it's finally working and now im loading up lots of CDs, though it is taking rather longer than i expected.
    I've been listening to the new Beatles CD 'Love'. It's got some really nice arrangements on it. :)

    ^If I may suggest something about your iPod. Load up as many Cds to your comp now. When you plug your iPod into the correct plug it should automatically transfer your music from the comp to the iPod. When that's done, change your iPod settings in iTunes to manual transfer. If you delete the music from iTunes, and keep it on automatic transfer, the next time you put music into iTunes to transfer to your iPod, the iPod will delete any music it can't find in iTunes. So my advice is after the first transfer of music, change your iPod settings (in iTunes Prefrences) to manual. It's a little confusing, but someone told me about it and I've been forever grateful. I hope this helps you.

    How does this album compare to their older stuff?

    It's quite good, actually---a bit more subdued, overall, more reflective and 'mature' (no surprise there, since they're old men now). But musically it's excellent, with a few nods stylistically to their rich past, and there are hints of the big, anthemic, 'stadium-sound' for which they became famous. I recommend it, but would caution against expecting it to 'rock' has hard as some of their classic albums like 'Who's Next' or 'Who Are You.'

    I've been lucky enough to see them twice in concert: Once in the Eighties, when they performed 'Tommy' live, and again in the Nineties, when they perfomed 'Quadrophenia.' I'm glad they've put out some new material; it was overdue.

    Incidentally, I think they should change a key line in one of their signature songs, 'My Generation':

    "Don't want to die, now that I'm old..." ;)

    I'm quite envious of you. :D Although they are not my favourite group, I do like them alot and I own many of their older songs. It's also good to hear that you would recommend this album as I've been thinking of getting it. ;)

    Absolutely. :D You know, a few years ago I was shocked when I heard that Hillary Duff was performing this song in concert. :o :#

    It was David Bowie's 60th Birthday a couple of days ago. It got me to thinking which song of his I actually like the most.

    I narrowed it down to Space Oddity, Life On Mars, Drive In Saturday, The Man Who Sold The World, Sound And Vision, Heroes, Ashes To Ashes, Lets Dance, China Girl, This Is Not America.

    And that's as far as I got. I could not decide which one of those wonderful songs I liked the most, though there may be some significance in that I am curently listening to The Man Who Sold The World.
