Christmas is (a) comin'. So I roll out my Aimee Mann CD, 'One More Drifter in the Snow'.
I used to just buy Aimee Mann albums automatically because of her killer song writing.
So I didn't realise it was a collection of Christmas covers (+ one original) until I stuck it on!
It's the only Christmas record I can stomach.
Another one that I own that gets me right here (points to chest) is 'Thank U' by Alanis Morissette.
It was used in the Martin Sheen film 'The Way' to great effect toward the end of the movie (welling up now!).
(BTW antibiotics are not addictive Alanis!)
I share your affinity for Aimee Mann - growing up in the Boston area, 'Til Tuesday seemed to open for every major act that came to town so I probably saw them 10 times, which clued me in early to her talent. I also despise Christmas albums, but I will definitely check that one out.
I got into Aimee Mann after watching Magnolia.
The soundtrack and film are inseparable.
I love REO's.. Take it on the Run.. don't tell anyone.
I just love how happy and bouncy this tune is...
I've been thinking about this for a couple of days. The only thing that comes to mind of possibly qualifying is Changes by Black Sabbath. Though, I'm not ashamed for loving it. It's one on the first Sabbath songs that I figured out how to play, and it was a welcome break from my classical piano lessons back in the mid-70s.
What's wrong with that?
Just love the haunting nature of the song.
Im not ashamed
Karen Carpenter fckn rocked! And she was born the same day as me ,Rory Gallagher , Lou Reed ...
I used to sing this for my kid
Karen had such a great voice. I'm 53 and remember my dad playing that album.
I'm a big fan Sufjan Stevens, here are a couple off the top.
Austin City 2006
Many (now hiding).
Karen carpenter is one of the best singers in the bis by far. Thar is nobody that can make those tracks better .
Black Sabbath, along with Led Zeppelin, are the first game changers for me.
IMO, they are the pinnicle of music.
Might we add Deep Purple?
I was just about to post Breathe of Heaven and saw you posted it. +1 on that song! And I the words of @AlvisX - I’m not ashamed either.
Yeah, I loved the pre Stormbringer line up.
