so you guys all know of my love of pop music. so I can't bust up in here with "i love to jam some Ke$ha"... so i had to go way back for something truly embarassing.
when i was oh-i-dont-know, maybe 10 years old, I would watch The Wonder Years, and PINE away for Fred Savage. I mean like, tiger beat and teen bop posters on the wall, the whole nine. I would listen to the radio when I went to bed, and that song "It must have been love" by Roxette was pretty popular then... I would literally cry myself to sleep if that song came on bc I just KNEW that i would never meet Fred Savage and we would never fulfill our destiny of being together forever.
That christmas, my first cassette tapes that I ever got were Madonna "Like a Prayer", Nelson's "after the rain", and The Pretty Woman soundtrack with Roxette on it. Wore that shiz out.

Mule Variations may be my favorite. The Bone Machine is really good. I like all the older, more jazzy stuff, but the turn to how Waits sounds now started at Swordfishtrombones. Both that one and Rain Dogs are excellent. Real Gone has some of my favorite songs (Hoist That Rag, Don't Go Into The Barn, Trampled Rose, Make It Rain) mixed in with alot of filler. After you have listened to these check out the triple album Orphans and report back.

I really need to jump into this pool. They seem like the type of band I would absolutely love, I've just never gotten around to it.
I am not sure if they are on Spotify or not. I own almost all of their albums, so I have never looked. Their documentary "Instrument" is on youtube. It's good and bad as a way to get in them because it covers a long portion of their recording career, but for whatever reason, none of the songs are complete. Always portions.
Growing up in DC in the late 80s was fantastic for the punk scene. Seeing Bad Brains and Minor Threat and then Fugazi all over the place was awesome. There's a doc coming out next year (I hope) called Salad Days: The HarDCore Punk Revolution about the scene here. Can't wait for that.
I love the Grateful Dead's music. Like, unabashedly and without reservation. I think they're probably the quintessential "American" rock and roll band. I think that some GD fans are unreasonable as to their fandom (for instance, nothing irks me more than GD fans deriding other acts as "commercial" or any sort of associated synonym, because NOBODY has done more to cash in on their image and likeness through tons of crappy products than the GD), but I also think the detractors are even more unreasonable. Sure, for much of the 80's and 90's the Grateful Dead was a bloated, overly aimless noodling tour machine, but even in those lean years they produced some great music.

I have never listened to the Belle & Sebastian. I know for a fact I will hate them, just on name alone.
I've heard like two Avett Brothers songs, but I refuse to listen to them based on the "I And Love And You" album title. Just f*cking awful. It helps that I know I probably wouldn't really like them based on what I've heard, anyway.
