... Jack Johnson's 'Brushfire Fairytales' ... it's a terrific 'laid back' blend of acoustic folk and bluesy soul ... go on, treat yourself, I don't think you'll be disappointed! Wink

My new ipod Cool

What an awesome piece of kit - I'd thoroughly recommend one. Bit pricier and less feature packed than some of the players out there, but the design of the thing is top notch and when you've got 40gb of mp3s to navigate through, a good, slick user interface is pretty important.

Getting one of these things has also introduced me to the world of podcasting, so I'm listening to Adam Curry's podcast at the moment, in between creating loads of playlists

My Chemical Romance - 'Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge'

Certainly not for everyone but had it months and keep on coming back to it. Best described as dark, intelectual, heavy-punk - yet capable of humour and whimsy when they want to.

And not a filler on the album. A sad rarety nowadays.

Thirteen Senses - 'The Invitation'

Mostly piano-based indie but, unlike Keene (of whom I'm also a fan by-the-way), not afraid of getting the guitars out and adding a little meat to the gentle melodies and haunting vocals.

Damien Rice - 'O'

Simple and traditional guitar and voice. His strained vocals hushing out some beautiful, peotic, occasionally dark lyrics are the perfect acompanyment to reading, writing, or that last scotch and cigarette before bedtime.

Yep ... me too, on and off.

Ray Charles.


The one 'with friends?' I've been playing that quite a bit lately.

Daughter just bought me the Scissor Sisters (trying to educate me I think) and that's on 'repeat' throughout the day - love it!

Sorry are they names of people that sing? They sound like horror movies! (Apart from Chopin, not that I've heard any of his numbers!)

I love Badly, ugly as sin and a scruffy arsehole but still like him.

I got the Ray Charles with friends for Christmas and I've listened to some of it, but I keep going back to the older stuff. Stella By Starlight, You Don't Know Me, can't beat 'em!

Bet you've heard the Funeral March. It comes from one of Chopin's piano sonatas.

Now there's a blast from my past! I haven't heard that for years (used to have it on vinyl ... didn't get custody of it though!) and I must find a copy. Really used to enjoy it!

By the way Rob, please don't tell us you spend your days listening to the Funeral March - I think I'd prefer to imagine you leaping around with an air guitar in your living room; to the eternal shame of your children (with your zimmerframe close by of course, just in case you need it!) Sad Wink

The five CDs I have listened to over the last couple of days are:
Four Seasons - Vivaldi
Hopes and Fears - Keane
Theme music from The Mission - Ennio Morricone
White Ladder - David Grey
The Very Best of Cat Stevens

I've heard good reports of Damien Rice's 'O' - may give it a try Smile
