These songs have been in my head lately.
Maybe I need to head to the water.

Down by the Water---The Decemberists---the jangly rythym guitar is Peter Buck of R.E.M.


Walk on the Ocean---Toad the Wet Sprocket

Thanks for the education..Your head is a cool place to visit but I wouldn't want to live there. Just kidding - cool tunes.

Sounds like you should listen to your head.

Good stuff Will! Also love that Gordon Lightfoot song.

To describe my taste in music, I'd have to list stuff I don't like, because it would be a much shorter list. Don't really like country. Don't really like much rap and no rap that's come out in the last 15 years. Don't like most modern top 40/pop. Other than that, I like EVERYTHING. From Simon and Garfunkle to Slipknot. From R.E.M. to the Beatie Boys to the Chemical Brothers to NOFX to The Cure to Pink Floyd. Like classical music. Blues and jazz is cool. Everything. At heart I'm an old metalhead though.

This is the song that I used lyrics from for my siggie quote. To me, it is as melodic as it is dark and angry. Maybe my favorite metal song. I can loose myself in this.....

Ken,

We're obviously dipping from the same well. I wasn't too much of a metal head though. To be sure, I listened to some metal...sprinkled in with everything else from 70s singer/songwriters and the end of the big AM Top 40 era---Widespread Panic----R.E.M.----80s alternative---Grunge----old Rolling Stones---The Cure--Drivin N Cryin----The Smithereens----Jane's Addiction---The Dandy Warhols----The Black Keys---plus classical and blues.

I'm with you on country----outside of maybe Johnny Cash and some Dwight Yoakam. Modern pop is miserable gruel.

Metallica's "Ride the Lightning" just came up on my iPod. Before that was Queensryche's "Eyes of a Stranger." Earlier was Yo-Yo Ma and a cello piece. Go figure.

Here's a favorite driving song:

Pre-Black Album Metallica is among my favorite music of all time. Up there with Pink Floyd and The Doors. Apples to Oranges I know but it's the stuff I love.

Tonight it's Thunder Road by Bruce Springsteen

The screen door slams, Mary's dress sways
Like a vision she dances across the porch As the radio plays
Roy Orbison singing for the lonely Hey that's me and I want you only
Don't turn me home again I just can't face myself alone again
Don't run back inside Darling you know just what Im here for
So you're scared and you're thinking That maybe we aint that young anymore
Show a little faith, there's magic in the night You aint a beauty, but hey you're alright Oh and that's alright with me

You can hide `neath your covers And study your pain
Make crosses from your lovers Throw roses in the rain
Waste your summer praying in vain For a savior to rise from these streets
Well now I'm no hero That's understood
All the redemption I can offer, girl Is beneath this dirty hood
With a chance to make it good somehow Hey what else can we do now?
Except roll down the window And let the wind blow Back your hair
Well the nights busting open These two lanes will take us anywhere
We got one last chance to make it real To trade in these wings on some wheels
Climb in back Heavens waiting on down the tracks
Oh-oh come take my hand Riding out tonight to case the promised land
Oh-oh thunder road, oh thunder road oh thunder road
Lying out there like a killer in the sun
Hey I know it's late we can make it if we run
Oh thunder road, sit tight take hold Thunder road

Well I got this guitar And I learned how to make it talk
And my cars out back If you're ready to take that long walk
From your front porch to my front seat The doors open but the ride it aint free
And I know you're lonely For words that I aint spoken
But tonight we'll be free All the promises'll be broken
There were ghosts in the eyes Of all the boys you sent away
They haunt this dusty beach road in the skeleton frames of burned out chevrolets

They scream your name at night in the street Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
And in the lonely cool before dawn You hear their engines roaring on
But when you get to the porch they're gone On the wind, so mary climb in
Its a town full of losers And Im pulling out of here to win.
