I've had out Alanis' acoustic remake of the entire Jagged Little Pill album, which is great.

This week has also had me listening to Rise Against, Flyleaf, and Disturbed.
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

On the mp3-CD I'm playing in my car right now are albums of Bon Jovi, Weird Al, german Punk Bands "Die Toten Hosen" and "Die Ärtzte, who no one here will know, Elvis, Velvet Revolver and a so called "various" folder with songs from Nelly Furtado, Manowar, Pink, AC/DC, Joan Jett, Rolling Stones and many more. I also got the "Ballad of Serenity" and "Faith of the Heart" (Enterprise) on it.

I require music to fall asleep in a reasonable amount of time, so I have Dido's White Flag living in my bedside CD player.

Abbey Road is surely the best album of all time. Dark Side of the Moon and Love over Gold are also in my top 5.

The rest is before my time, but my dad has a huge amount (leonard cohen, steeleye span, sky, curved air etc) that I used to listen to, before I moved out.
Have fun,

I wasn't around for most of the 70s. And I don't date my music. I just listen to whatever appeals to me. I'm lucky to remember who sings something, much less when they sang it.

But I do have Queen's Greatest Hits, 3 disc set. Were they 70s?

Just so everyone knows, there are only two gramatically correct ways to write Seventies with numerals.

'70s (apostrophe, seven, zero, ess -- specifically an abbreviation for "1970s" -- notice that there is no apostrophe between the zero and the ess)

70s (seven, zero, ess -- specifically the numerical abreviation for "Seventies" -- again, no apostrophe between the zero and the ess)

Led Zep

Postby qoquaq » Thu Sep 06, 2007 2:35 pm

Have you heard the news, Led Zeppelin to reform! How cool is that!
I missed out seeing them in 1970 at the Bath Festival (though I could hear them from where I lived) so it would be great to see a Vintage Led Zep (literally)
