What's in my CD player?

I decided to write a post about all the other music I listen from time to time. Although The Cure is my all time favorite band, and I do have just about everything they have released on CD, there are quite a few other artists I enjoy listening to.

Long time readers and friends know that I am also a big Prince fan, as evident in my post about his most recent concert stop in Houston for Musicology. But what else can found spinning for the laser light to read?

I like a variety of music from across the spectrum of possibilities, R&B, Classical, Rap, Alternative, Classic Rock, 80s, Disco, Metal, and a very little country & tejano.

Wow! Now that is a lot of music. That is not all I listen to, but a damn good sampling. Leave comments, shoot me an e-mail, enjoy some music, have a great day!!


As ever, I close with a favortie from The Cure...



  • Today's Cure song is Catch from the Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me CD -(1987) A simple song about a girl he used to know. Very soft with beautiful violins!

"You know I even think that she smiled like you
She used to just stand there and smile
And her eyes would go all sort of far away
And stay like that for quite a while"

That's a heck of disc changer you've got there, CJ.

And, your cool factor was bumped up a few notches with the Deftones entry. Throw in a little Tool and some Chevelle, and it will sky rocket.

I knew you were cool due to your love of the cure, but I also have to bump you some notches due to:

Back in Black-one of the greatest CD's ever.

Abba- I am a fag, if we don't like Abba, they take away my toaster.

Aerosmith still rocks.

Blondie & B52's: Love both

I LOVE Heart.

You know my feelings about Garbage

The more you ignore me... my favorite Morrissey/Smiths song.

You should check out the Soundtrack to The Craft. It's old, but really good.
