Burnt some tracks to cd to take to work with me today...

The Eighties Matchbox B Line Disaster - Celebrate your mother
This is easily my favourite song of the moment. Lots of energy, mad lyrics and a shattering climax.

Sugababes - Stronger
I'd buy anything by the sugababes at the moment. I've loved everything they've released this year. This is their big ballad and i'm a sucker for it.

Entombed - Chief rebel Angel
My Cowie forces me to listen to death/thrash metal when we drive to KFC for lunch but it's not all without pleasure. This has a great chorus/riff going on. It makes me want to go 'grrrrrrrr!!!!!' and gets me motivated for the big games on PES2 :)

Beatles - Helter Skelter
This track is driving my girlfriend nuts because i keep jumping around the flat and singing it at her. If it had been released by any of the new wave of 'The' bands in the last year or so no one would have thought it out of place. I kind of think Paul McCartney is a cock but he does a fucking good job on this.

Super Furry Animals - Ice Hockey hair
This sounds like an audio 'cut and shut' on four different records, but what a cut and shut - Better than Phil Mitchells's garage. Sometimes i'm a little in awe of SFA, i think they're probably the most consistently inventive UK band of the last few years.

The Beatings - Bad feeling
Only heard this recently on a recommendation from a mate. This is the kind of track that makes you want to get drunk, punch someone in the face and fuck your girlfriend on the floor (cf the yeah yeah yeahs). For me that's a good thing.

Sigue Sigue Sputnik - Love Missile F1-11
Sounds like a bull in a sample shop, but has some great moments. A totally fascinating mix of stuff.

80s Matchbox Beeline Disaster are making music unlike anything else out there. :beer:

Ice Hockey Hair is such a great track, especially the intro.

I don't get what's so good about Super Furry Animals. Everything I've heard from them seems boring.

And everytime I say that I get these indignant rants from people who like them. :confused:

I think the Sugar Babes' ballad is the first shit song they have done. I'm so ashamed to admit it but their producers are really good.

I haven't heard the Sugar Babes song or if I have I wasn't aware it was them.

I hope this CD you have "burnt" is purely for "Back-up" purposes only... :D

I'm currently listening to A Christmas Gift From Phil Spector, without doubt the greatest christmas album ever made. Great cuts include The Crystals version of Santa Clause Is coming To Town, and the Ronettes version of Sleigh Ride (guaranteed to get the catchy refrain "Ringalingalingadingdongding" stuck in your head). But my particular favourite is Christmas (Baby Please Come Home) by Darlene Love, as used in the Gremlins movie.

Have you listened to it since it has been digitally remasted by Spector himself? It sounds amazing! Literally like it's being recorded live in the room with you.

I thought the 1992 version (from the Box Set) had been done by him as well? Although that was with old technology, generally new CDs all sound better.

Funko: if you've not got anything worth saying, don't say anything at all.
