Paul Simon (self-titled).

Okay, strictly speaking, it's not a ya-ya-producing record (except for Me and Julio Down by the Schoolyard). Still. It's rhymin' Simon.

I think 'get your ya-yas out' is similar to 'getting it on' and is therefore subject to individual interpretation. Listening to the 'Stones gets my ya-yas out; watching "Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood" most assuredly did not.

It changes according to what I'm listenting to this week. Right now, I would say Iron Maiden: Brave New World

My favourite track would have to be Dream of Mirrors. In fact, I'm going to listen to that right now. It is Valentine's Day after all.

"I only dream in black in white."

REM - Monster

Perhaps not their best, but at least with this album they couldn't be accused of falling into an artistic rut or becoming a parody of themselves.

Alice Cooper's Greatest Hits - I saw the band perform 'Under My Wheels' in Ottawa when it was released. That's a while ago, now, and my hair has thinned considerably, and turned grayer, since. But Alice Cooper's early stuff still rocks.

It's hardly a get your ya yas out song, but its a really good song. Eminem's Mockingbird off of Encore. I know that he's had terrible lyrics, but this song is just gorgeous...Until the end where Eminem ruins a really moving song. Also on my playlist is Elliot Smith's Between the Bars which is my official favourite song. On top of that is Fade to Black by Metallica and Feel Good, Inc. by Gorillaz and LITTLE BUSTERS by the Pillows.

Joan Jett and the Blackhearts - Pure and Simple ('94).

Still looking for the album of hers with the "French Song" (I know what album it is, just haven't found it in the stores yet).

'Til Tuesday - Voices Carry

Bit weird hearing Aimee Mann in her original incarnation as the singer for a mid-1980s synth-pop band, albeit one that I understand was on the cutting edge of the genre. But then perhaps in another ten years, if they aren't doing so already, people will listen to "Pablo Honey" and "The Bends" and say, "Wow, I never realized Radiohead started out as a rock group."

When I'm in France, I definitely listen to Nostalgie. Right now I'm listening to some old bluesy jazz on Espace musique.

Snif along with Françoise Hardy...

Tous les garcons et les filles de mon âge
Se promènent dans la rue deux par deux
Tous les garcons et les filles de mon âge
Savent bien ce que c'est d'etre heureux
Et les yeux dans les yeux
Et la main dans la main
Ils s'en vont amoureux
Sans peur du lendemain
Oui mais moi je vais seule
Dans la rue l'âme en peine
Oui mais moi je vais seule
Car personne ne m'aime
Mes jours comme mes nuits
Sont en tous points pareils

Tous les garcons et les filles de mon âge
Font ensemble des projets d'avenir
Tous les garcons et les filles de mon âge
Savent bien ce que aimer veut dire
Et les yeux dans les yeux
Et la main dans la main
Ils s'en vont amoureux
Sans peur du lendemain
Oui mais moi je vais seule
Dans la rue l'âme en peine
Oui mais moi je vais seule
Car personne ne m'aime
Mes jours comme mes nuits
Sont en tous points pareils

Comme les garcons et les filles de mon âge
J'connaîtrais bientot ce qu'est l'amour
Comme les garcons et les filles de mon âge
Je me demande quand viendra le jour
Où les yeux dans les yeux
Où la main dans la main
J'aurais le coeur heureux
Sans peur du lendemain
Le jour où je n'aurais plus du tout
L'âme en peine
Le jour où moi aussi
J'aurais quelqu'un qui m'aime

A friend sent me "Robbie Williams - Live Summer 2003". Never heard of him before, he's alright, but seems to have let his ego run amuck. His "We will rock you" is only about a minute and a half long. It's not a bad disk, but it don't get my ya-yas out.

You can listen to nostalgie in Canada too.

While they play great stuff like the Francoise Hardy tunes mentioned above, they also play, as they are at the moment, dreck like Mike Brant too.

I suppose it is time to admit that Francoise Hardy is indeed a "nostalgia" performer, even though those early Vogue Records singles still sound timeless to me.

One day you wake up and Archambault's no longer carries vinyl records.

This record definitely has a much higher "ya-ya" count than the other ones I've played recently. They were good, just not particularly ya-ya-esque.

That's on my list of favourite albums. Apparantly they have it at the UVic library, but only on vinyl, which means they must have gotten it right when it came out.

For me it's Internal Wrangler, by Clinic. I'm having a party at my house later tonight though, so I think I'm gonna have to make my music choice a little bit more upbeat.

No, it's Beck Hansen, who's been making music since sometime in the early nineties (though I understand he comes from a musical family as well). Hard to describe -- a mish-mash of a whole bunch of musical styles, with a strong whiff of Bob Dylan's playful approach to music and lyrics.

His mum and dad took Jeff Beck's last name and made it the first name of their new born son? I may as well do likewise and take my last name and make it my first name. From now on, you can call me Boom Boom.

KMFDM - Angst

Ani di Franco - Out of Range

Both artists who I want to like, but can only enjoy in small quantities.

If I had to pick one to listen to a lot of, it'd be KMFDM. Ani is just too intellectual an experience for me to appreciate her music as music. I prefer the direction that Tegan and Sara have gone (while clearly being influenced by her) toward more musically intricate and lyrically simpler power-pop. Heck, I even prefer Alanis Morrisette's 1995 catchier, souped-up take on Ani's style.

Still, I got "Out of Range" turned up loud right now, and I'm diggin' it. And I think I'm getting to the really good part of the record.

Elvis Costello and the Attractions.

Radio Radio.

'This Year's Girl.'

quote:
Radio is a sound salvation
Radio is cleaning up the nation
They say you better listen to the voice of reason
But they don't give you any choice
'cause they think that it's treason.
So you had better do as you are told.
You better listen to the radio.

[snip]

Some of my friends sit around every evening
and they worry about the times ahead
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference
and the promise of an early bed
You either shut up or get cut up;
they don't wanna hear about it.
It's only inches on the reel-to-reel.
And the radio is in the hands of such a lot of fools tryin' to anaesthetise the way that you feel

Great song, great lyrics. I especially like:

I broke out my copy of Spike yesterday. It had been a while. Not his strongest album, that's for sure, but it's hard not to like Veronica and Tramp the Dirt Down.

I listened to Sarah Slean's first album like three times today.

{edited to add} Damn, did you just edit in all the words? This Year's Model has some great lyrics. Nothing better than "I don't wanna kiss you, I don't wanna touch...".

"See your friends treat me like a stranger.
See your friends despite all the arrangements.
See your friends Nothing here has changed".

And if you have the bonus disc or some extra tracks, don't you just love those acoustic demos?...

Now listening to Revolver. Okay, so it took me forty years to get around to listening to it, but in my defence, I wasn't born yet for the first eleven.

Bought My Aim is True last year. Think I'll get a few more of Costello's first several albums.

Diggin' out the ol' vinyl to listen to the Porky's Revenge soundtrack - quite seriously my all-time favourite movie soundtrack ever. Not, of course, anywhere near my favourite movie ever - it's only a millimeter this side of suckage. As the article says:
quote:
When it comes right down to it, Porky's Revenge has such a great soundtrack that, every time you put it on, you never cease to think, "Geez, maybe I should go back and rent the movie and see what I missed!"

Do not fall for this. It can only end badly.

You mean you haven't yet? You're obviously not a fellow insomnia victim.

It's on heavy rotation on the late night circuit - it was on just this morning as a matter of fact (5:30ish, when the cat woke me). So I turned off the television, and turned on the stereo.

Warren Zevon - self-titled ('76). Thanx to ronb for the recommendation.

Who could play Zevon in a movie? I'm thinking Alan Rickman, more for the appearance than for the voice, although he could probably capture the persona as well.

That's on my list of favourite albums. Apparantly they have it at the UVic library, but only on vinyl, which means they must have gotten it right when it came out.

Geez, it was their third album I bought, after Land Speed Record and Zen Arcade. Now I feel old. Thanks Amy.

Lincoln, by They Might Be Giants. And as I listen to it, I'm realizing that I might just have the songs on this album on my brain more than the songs from any other album. (Though there would be some pretty fierce competition.) Interesting, as I wouldn't say it's one of my absolute favourite albums, or even my favourite TMBG album. Anyway -- sporadically brilliant manic doggerel, like the rest of their output.

For me it's Internal Wrangler, by Clinic. I'm having a party at my house later tonight though, so I think I'm gonna have to make my music choice a little bit more upbeat.

I was just looking over this thread, and man was that party a bust! It was just me and a half dozen friends for a bit, and then a guy that I knew showed up with a dozen kids I didn't know and they were pretentious snobs. They were sorting through the music on the various computers and MP3 players around, critiquing our selection. They even made fun of us for having Devo. Booooo.

Right now I've got A Perfect Circle's 'Thirteenth Step' in, but I only like a few tracks, so I'm being kind of selective in my listening. Also, SO EXCITED for the new tool album!!!

Bruce Springsteen's 'Thunder Road' from the album 'Born to Run.'

quote:
They scream your name at night in the street
Your graduation gown lies in rags at their feet
And in the lonely cool before dawn
You hear their engines roaring on
But when you get to the porch they're gone
On the wind, so Mary climb in
It's town full of losers
And I'm pulling out of here to win.

Depeche Mode - Playing the Angel.

I didn't really know about this album until I went to find new music today. I was actually looking for Violator on Soulseek (I don't know where my copy went). It was a happy suprise, especially considering I am going to be seeing them at Coachella in a couple months. The only drawback to the album is that I won't be able to hear "Policy of Truth" for the first time again.

Tricky Woo, an amazing band from Montreal. Thwap, I think you would love them. They played last night at Lee's Palace as part of the Canadian Music Week. Absolutely amazing live. There new album just came out.
If anyone likes 70's style music with some blues thrown in, check this band out:

For prog rock fans another band that played last night was From Fiction. Stunningly talented band.

Cat Power - The Greatest.

'Nother of these artists who I've kept reading about for quite a few years, but never listening to anything by. This is quite agreeably mellow and moody -- I guess the closest genre would be Motown? That doesn't quite sound accurate. I gather she's made a wide variety of styles of music in the past.

Anyway, I like this, although halfway through, finding that most of the songs so far are hard to distinguish from each other and sometimes seem to go on and on, not really going anywhere. Probably have to give it another listen. Is there another of Cat Power's records that'd be a good introduction to her music?

Bob Dylan - at Bukodan. Great stuff, ecept "Like A Rolling Stone" doesn't have the sheer punch of his original. There's no How does it feel! To be on your own! With no direction home! On this album, it's too smooth, it flows rather than hammers its point. The readt of the album is pretty good. Probably being there would have added some punch to the lyrics.

Sloan - A-Sides Win (1992-2005).

So many great ya-ya songs on this compilation - "The Good in Everyone," "Money City Maniacs," "If it Feels Good, Do it", etc. Hopefully they will come out with a new album of original material soon, as the "greatest hits" CD is usually the ominous signal of an imminent breakup...

quote:
Bought My Aim is True last year. Think I'll get a few more of Costello's first several albums.

Ditto - I have the first 2 EC albums (My Aim is True and This Year's Model) and Costello is just a total genius, both musically and lyrically. He has put out so many albums that I don't quite know where to go after the first two, but I'll definitely get a few more from that late 70's - early 80's era.

quote:
No Dancing

Now he's telling her
Every little thing he's done
Once he glanced at the jackets of some paperbacks
Now he's read every one

He's such a drag, he's not insane
It's just that everybody has to feel his pain

There's gonna be no dancing when they get home

I guess the next "what are you listening to..." thread will need a better title than the one I gave this one. I'm listening to one of my favourite albums from long ago, it doesn't get my ya-yas out, but it does mellow me out. It's John Denver's Greatest Hits. Yes, I know Denver had conservative politics, but he was also a great singer and composer. I love the guy, and shed a tear when he died in an airplane accident (hope I got that right). I love his 'Take Me Home, Country Roads' and closing out with 'Rocky Mountain High'. I miss the guy something awful.

Yes, the music threads don't seem to be as busy as they were last year. Not sure why that is. Anyway, I've got a few ideas for punchy thread titles (unless someone beats me to it).

Listening to Melville, by the Rheostatics. One of my few CDs to have a Delta Police Department sticker on it, placed there after the rest of my family's CDs were stolen. I had a few albums with me in my university residence room at the time, and Melville was one of them.

So, why am I listening to the Rheostatics right now?

'Cause someone said they sounded like the Replacements.

This morning it was 60 Channels, a mix between dance and dancehall reggae. Now I'm listening to this psyche band from the UK called Archive. Sort of hard not to shed a tear or two to 'Again'

Archive's Again

I loved the Dylan Live At Budokan record way back when, what a great big sounding band he had, with the flutes and all that. I seem to remember Shelter from the Storm being really great on that. I haven't heard it in years.

Right now it's My Morning Rebel. They're like the Moody Blues, in the best possible way. I really like them.

They're also reminding me of House of Love somehow. Who I had totally forgotten. I liked them back then.

The ya-ya quotient for this album is very high, albeit not evenly distributed throughout all of the songs. Most of it is concentrated in the "Oh, NO!" at the start of "I Can't Control Myself".

Stereolab - Mars Audiac Quintet

Stereolab are not to be confused with Lush. Or maybe they are. Anyway, Lush are British, while I'm guessing Stereolab are French.

Hypnotic would be one way to describe their music. Tediously repetitious monotony would be another, but really, if you feel that way, why listen to it?

The The - Soul Mining.

Early '80s British folky self-flagellation, with hints of a proto-industrial sound -- sort of a link between Bowie and Nine Inch Nails, not that there particularly needs to be such a link.

I've got a mix of the following albums playing right now:

Opeth - Ghost Reveries
Dream Theatre - Octavarium
Epica - The Phantom Agony
Lacuna Coil - Unleashed Memories

I end up with a very mellow yet sort of intense mood. Rather good for working from home (which I'm supposed to be doing), or a lesiurely evening of 'getting my ya-yas out' (which I wish I was doing)

Aimee Mann - Lost in Space

I like her stuff, but I may have heard too much of it in too concentrated a period of time, as the elaborate musical hooks, her jaded-romantic pose, and her penchant for clever (maybe too clever) wordplay, that combine to produce such chilly masterpieces of songs, are starting to feel too repetitive. In Mann's own words, "Baby, we've all heard it all before...." Well, why mess with success, huh? Still, she could stand to lose the string section a bit more often.

"Goodbye Pork Pie Hat" Sung by Mitchell, (bass) Pastorius written by Mingus as a collaboration with Joni Mitchell.

"Se Todos Fossem Iguais De Voce" Sung by Gal Costa, Written by Antonio Carlos Jobim.

"Strange Fruit" Sung and written by Billie Holliday.

"Emotional Weather Report" by Tom Waits.

That's what's on right now and has been subjected to heavy rotation, among others.

Oh, I love that. I've listened to Joni since her very first album, which I still have on an old LP. I love Joni, period.

I'm midway through watching "I Walk The Line" on ppv. Wow!

Anyone up to starting a new thread? This one's taking a while to download. A catchier title would be nice.

I'm listening to "The Cardigans" -- "My Favourite Game".

(I edited the former post because it was too long -- I saved it and might post it somewhere else.)

Please do! (Post it again, that is.) I had a chance to read it, and it was a great reminiscence.

On the one hand, I think "de-railings" are the best parts of "what're you listening to" threads; on the other, Joni Mitchell is well deserving of a dedicated discussion, and as Boom Boom said, this thread is getting a bit long.

Cheers, from the musical hall monitor....

Holy cow - "Walk The Line" is a great film! The singing is fantastic. I'm digging out my old Cash albums tonight! Wish I had some June Carter LPs.

Someone start a new thread - I did my share.

I just rented Walk the Line yesterday. I only found out afterwards that Phoenix and Witherspoon did all the vocals. Amazing.

Now playing: Captain Beefheart, Trout Mask Replica.

My ya-ya's are not only being gotten out, they're gonna need a chiropractor from all those twisted rhythms.

My ya-yas are getting listening to Kill 'em All by Metallica and Burnt Offerings by Iced Earth.

You have no idea how important both of these albums were to my childhood. Sad, when you think about it.

I had a couple of Beefheart albums when they came out in the late 1960's. They rather complimented my Frank Zappa LPs, although Zappa was easier understood, but that ain't saying much. His "We're only in it for the money" LP was a classic.

Bit weird hearing Aimee Mann in her original incarnation as the singer for a mid-1980s synth-pop band, albeit one that I understand was on the cutting edge of the genre. But then perhaps in another ten years, if they aren't doing so already, people will listen to "Pablo Honey" and "The Bends" and say, "Wow, I never realized Radiohead started out as a rock group."


Aimee Mann , like Joni Mitchell , Dylan and Neil Young, Aimee is one of the top shelf singer songwriters of the pop era in music. I was at the used record store a while back and scored Til Tuesday - Everything's Different Now, the overlooked 3rd album by the band and again it is a classic , includes At The Other End Of The Telescope written and preformed here with Elvis Costello.
