I'm a big fan of music, so I thought I'd start this thread and see what people are listening to.

You have a 6-disc CD changer. What are your 6 cds?
Feel free to update frequently! Questions about artists and albums are encouraged!

me:
Dream Theater - Systematic Chaos
Jack Ingram - This is it
Dashboard Confessional - shade of poison trees
Beastie Boys - the mix up
Soul Asylum - let your dim light shine
RHCP - BSSMagik

don't actually have a cd changer... per se... but in the past year or two have taken to ripping stuff at 256kbps mp3's and burning them to a cd, which can typically hold 6 or so albums at that level. i use a sony walkman cd/mp3 player (D-NF430, which is deluxe) jacked into a nice set of amped pc speakers, or as a portable unit (w/ ear-buds), or into a set of Sennheiser RS-120 Wireless Headphones (a very good buy) [so as to not bother the neighbors], all very low cost and good sounding alternatives. these disks play well on my home stereo through my DVD player too.... anyway... that's enough of that stuff... here's one list:



Kristy MacColl - Tropical Brainstorm
Al Green - Geatest Hits (1 & 2)
Talking Heads - Stop Making Sense
Laurie Anderson - Home of the Brave
Michael Hedges - Aerial Boundaries
Dan Reeder - Dan Reeder (The Power That Comes From Nowhere)
The Meters - Funkify Your life (Anthology)

Kirk will be happy to know that I bought an iPod a month ago and have been enjoying it ever since.

About a week ago I put my iPod on "shuffle" and am now 1600 songs into my 2600-song collection. It's fun not knowing what will be played next, though it also helps me realize what songs are not so good.

Last night I got a classical piece from Mozart, followed by Outkast's "Hey Ya!"

Three of the CD's in my changer were made for me by my daughter tand left for me the day before she left for college. She left them in my car with a note that made me cry on my way to 5 am practice :cry:. They have a variety of songs that we enjoyed while she was younger and growing up, songs about daughters growing up :cry:, songs we enjoyed while vacationing (we always choose a CD to listen to and then forever when we hear it, we remember the vacation) along with some of her current favorites that she thought I would like. :fish2:

Thanks for the heads-up. I have heard some of her stuff and it is very good. BTW, if you have a fast internet connection, check out www.xpn.org . It is a radio station of the Univ. Of PA in Philly. They play a really excellent mix of stuff that sounds like right up your alley. It's a professional station, so no typical college radio sloppiness.

Anna Lea, you are so lucky living in KC. Two of my favorite bands are local KC bands - The Elders and The Rainmakers.

PS - Congrats on the Kansas football massacre over the Huskers. I'm so glad I decided not to go to the game. :)

Susan,

Ahh, the Rainmakers. I have a couple of their albums. Alas, they are no more, although I think at least one of them still performs around town with another group. The Elders are still going strong.

How do you know so much about KC?

And as for the football game, it was big news here. Nebraska had won something like 38 of their last 39 matchups. The bigger news is that Kansas is still undefeated and Missouri has only lost one game. AND, the Kansas-Missouri game this year is going to be played in Kansas City (halfway between the two schools), at Arrowhead Stadium, over Thanksgiving weekend.

Asleep at the Wheel, doing some Bob Wills tunes ("Stay All Night, Stay a Little Longer" -- that would actually be Wells-Duncan). Good for :coffee: when I have to stay UP all night.

Elly Ameling - gorgeous voice; I heard/saw her in person.

Yes, Bob Walkenhorst, the former lead singer of the Rainmakers, plays accoustic weekly in some bar but I can't think of the name. He buys his music supplies from a friend of mine. He was telling my friend that he's a grandfather! Noooooo, it doesn't make me feel old!

My brother has lived in Lenexa since the mid 80s and I have been there a gazillion times for football games, baseball games, shopping, weddings, (not to mention the Lenexa BBQ contest) etc. Plus a bunch of my sorority sisters live in KC too. In college it was a fun weekend roadtrip from Lincoln (my hometown) back in the day when The Plaza had shops that you couldn't find anywhere else except NY, Chicago, etc.

The new Steve Earle album "City of Immigrants" (yes, I still call them albums), is really good - probably one of his best.

A gazillion? And you've never called me to take you to swim practice? Next time...

:bump: here i go bumping my own thread.
the blue muppet bought me the Led Zeppelin and Daughtry CDs for christmas. all that rock has got the cd player fired up and has also coincidentally also led to an increase in guitar usage as well.
