music for the masses

September 13, 2010

maybe. some may be a little loud for your tastes.

depeche mode's violator. soundgarden's badmotorfinger. acdc's back in black. tool's undertow. joni mitchell's hits. van halen's best of van halen volume one (as if there's ever gonna be a second volume, but hey...whatever). radiohead's in rainbows. aerosmith's devil's got a new disguise. elvis presley's thirty number one hits. creedence clearwater revival's chronicle, volume one. rage against the machine's rage against the machine (i HATE when band's self-title albums. how hard is it to come up with a name?). audioslave's audioslave.

u2's the joshua tree. the beatle's one. metallica's load (yes, i choose this one over metallica, because i only love three songs and like a couple more on metallica whereas i love seven and like all but say two of the rest on this one). stevie ray vaughan's stevie ray vaughan and double trouble: greatest hits. jimi hendrix' ultimate experience. the carpenter's love songs. the eagles' their greatest hits. prince's the hits. zz top's greatest hits. cyndi lauper's the essential cyndi lauper. pearl jam's rearview mirror. smashing pumpkins' greatest hits.

coldplay's parachutes. def leppard's hysteria. hole's celebrity skin. the police's every breath you take: the classics. madonna's the immaculate collection. the cure's galore. no doubt's the singles. portishead's dummy. sinead o'connor's i do not want what i haven't got. the strokes' is this it. eminem's the marshall mathers lp. janet jackson's design of a decade.

tracy chapman's telling stories. the pixies' doolittle. beastie boys' paul's boutique. nine inch nails' the downward spiral. mgmt's oracular spectacular. sara bareilles' little voice. counting crows' august and everything after. cold's thirteen ways to bleed on stage. black lab's your body above me. dashboard confessional's a mark, a mission, a brand, a scar. evans blue's the melody and the energetic nature of volume. feist's the reminder.

a fine frenzy's one cell in the sea. fuel's something like human. garbage's version two-point-oh. indigo girls' indigo girls. middlefinger's three martini lunch. ingrid michaelson's be ok. linkin park's hybrid theory. matchbox twenty's exile on mainstream. dave matthews band's under the table and dreaming. live's awake: the best of live. korn's korn. lifehouse's no name face. rachael yamagata's happenstance.

poe's haunted. staind's dysfunction. silversun pickups' swoon. tears for fears' the best of tears for fears. toad the wet sprocket's p.s. stone temple pilots' thank you. sarah mclachlan's fumbling towards ecstasy (it should be toward, by the way. i want to correct every time i write that). tori amos' little earthquakes. the fray's how to save a life. the airborne toxic event's the airborne toxic event. and there're the boys in the photo above. what made milwaukee famous' trying to never catch up.

  1. We have a lot of these in common! But I didn't see any Springsteen. This is a huge problem...
