        1. That's the only one I've got. I bought it on Oct 28, 1995 at the Dinkytown Disc-go-round.
          I was in town for a combination college visit (of the U of MN and Augsburg) and Sonic Youth concert (Washing Machine tour, with the Amps opening, my first show at First Ave).

          I pull out Confessions... every year on about Oct 28. Looks like Algonad might have me pull it out early.

    10. Every Little Thing She Does is Magic -- The Police

    Bonus: Straight No Chaser -- Thelonious Monk

    * Probably one of the worst Paul Westerberg songs ever.
    ** I heard this song on The Current earlier this week and have been humming it ever since, really glad it popped up today.

    I spent all morning yesterday listening to Lil B songs on random, and I've had it in my head ever since.

  10. 1. The Cinematic Orchestra “Entr'acte” Entr'acte*
    2. Whitney Houston “It's Not Right But It's Okay (Club 69 Future Club Mix)” It's Not Right But It's Okay Remixes*
    3. Sly & Robbie “Destination Unknown (Morning Chorus Mix by Rockers HiFi)”* Dubmission 2: The Remixes

    >>Would you donate to the WGOM if it netted you tickets to the Ha Ha Tonka concert of your choice? For a single donation of $104 -- only two dollars a week -- AMR will buy you and a friend a ticket to their next show, plus either a CD album and a beer or a T-Shirt. Now back to our comment.<<

    6. Ha Ha Tonka “Gusto” Buckle in the Bible Belt
    7. Sonic Youth “Scooter & Jinx” Goo
    8. Common ft. Cee-Lo “G.O.D. (Gaining One's Definition)” Thisisme Then (The Best of Common)
    9. Boy Blue* “Robot Tube Socks (James Dece Remix)”
    T. Heiko Laux “Five” Decks, EFX & 909 (Richie Hawtin Mix)
    E. Will Oldham “O Let It Be” Joya

    1. Just added. TCO has been quiet for a few years (their live album came out in 2008, I assume Ma Fleur was then 2006 or 2007. But then they recently released two digital singles: this one at 20 minutes and Manhatta at 11 mins. Every Day was probably my favorite album back in 2003, and I really need to rip it to my iTunes. TCO was my last concert before CER was born, at the Women's Club Theatre. EAR came with, too, and she was good until the encore basically doubled the concert length, with each musician taking at least ten minutes for his solo.

    2. I've mentioned it before, but the four singles off the My Love Is Your Love album had some of the best house remixes of pop singles I've come across. Part of the Soundtrack of my senior year of college. If Ms. Houston ever wants to get back to performing, I'll be there to buy the remixes.

    3. "Destination Unknown" is itself a remix: a Dub version of "Chill Out" by Black Uhuru, which could be found on Dubmission Vol. 1 (of 1, not including the remixes). (Kindof like Bowie's 1. Outside, which was part one of a trilogy that never had parts 2 or 3.)

    4. Bought the new Bonnie "Prince" Billy CD: Wolfroy Goes to Town. Just as I figured, he's going further down this same road away from anything resembling pop or hooks. Bummer. I haven't given it a close listen, I hope there's something that grabs me as much as "The Sounds Are Always Begging" off The Wonder Show of the World.

    9. Madison, WI, band that shares its bassist with So So Radio. This is the only song of theirs I could find, but they're supposed to have an EP out soon.

  11. Btw, the kids turned me on to the Jay Z/Kanye West album Watch The Throne. I'm really diggin' it, even though the lyrics have a lot more N***ers, and M***er-F***ers than I am used to and comfortable with.

  12. Stellar Kart -- Sunshine
    Bleach -- Super Good Feeling
    Maynard Ferguson -- Superbone Meets the Bad Man
    Audio Adrenaline -- Superfriend
    Manafest -- Supernatural
    David Crowder Band -- Surely We Can Change
    Relient K -- Surf Wax America
    The Beach Boys -- Surfer Girl
    The Beach Boys -- Surfin' U.S.A.
    Stryper -- Surrendur

  13. Haven't posted a list in months:

    1. Wilco - "One By One" - Kicking Television
    2. Thelonious Sphere Monk - "Epistrophy" - Ken Burns Jazz
    3. Bruce Springsteen & the E-Street Band - "Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out" - Born to Run
