Been listening to my "1001 Albums" playlist all morning, and I love some of the music. Much of it, I had never bothered to go all the way through. Abbey Road is a really good album, but I found it inconsistent. Many of the songs seem ridiculous even if they do have some cool metaphorical meanings. Come Together and Here Comes the Sun however are two of their best tracks on any album, there's something very cool about the way the whole album is arranged. Two Van Morrison albums, though my expectations were high, and I haven't gotten into them much yet, I was a little dissapointed. When you're squeezed around greats like Blonde on Blonde and Revolver though, you don't have much of a shot anyway. He's a decent songwriter, but I didn't like all the slow arrangements. Moondance is definitely my favorite song of the two albums. …

11 Sep 2005, 17:09 de mrcoljI'm hereby blogging in last.fm, and hopefully RSS'ing it into the discussion board on colinandbethany.com. A lot of this post will be my learning new last.fm-specific bbcode tags.
My name is Colin Jensen, or, on last.fm, mrcolj. I have been a member of such for over a year, and have listened to close to 30,000 tracks therefrom. My radio station is accurate enough that I can listen to it for hours without hearing anything I don't like. Every year, for five years now, I have burned a CD at the end of the year (and distributed them at Christmas), showing the top played tracks that year. It's always a surprise, since it invariably includes music that I don't know like, but have listened to many times.
This year's top artists include Tom Waits, They Might Be Giants, The Beatles, The King's Singers, David Bowie, and Danny Elfman; as well as The New Testament, The Book of Mormon, The Doctrine and Covenants, and Steven R. Covey (if those last four count.) Most of those are standards, that make it onto the list every year. …
