easy as sin.

Now the waiting... which according to one rock artist, is the hardest part.

HOLD ON...

There was a big old brain fart on my list. I don't mean a minor one, but big, like anais forgetting the Beatles big. 

I have all this bands CDs, many of the DVDs, etc. Several solo/post band, band albums from 2 of the stars of the group. I mean wow, where is my mind? :P  >:( ;)

Retooled list to arrive soon Johnny. (right after I go through my old LPs, CDs etc to make sure I didn't miss another biggie)

I guess music is a little more accessible than NES games.  :(

For some people, sure. For me, much much harder.

I consume music almost entirely at random, through my radio. There are a lot of songs I like from a lot of different artists, but I have this weird fear of commitment with music artists where I'm afraid to buy their album because I don't want to find out that they just had the one good song and I just bought an album full of 90% bad songs. The exception was Weird Al, and it wasn't until 10 years ago that I took the plunge with They Might Be Giants. My entire album collection is pretty much They Might Be Giants, Weird Al, Donna Lewis (Shut up! I like her voice!) and a bunch of soundtracks and chiptunes albums. I can do this list, but it's a matter of trying to fill it rather than chopping it down like I had to do with the last list.

End result: My album's gonna have a lot of pop rock artists. Mostly from the '80s. But THERE WILL BE A LIST! I'm also going to try (never a promise) to get Tyrant involved, because she's WAY more musically educated than I am.

The 80's had a lot of good artists.  I mean, it also may have been when pop music was at its cheesiest and everyone used saxophones despite the fact that they only sounded good in a few songs, but the 80's turned out some phenomenal performers.

wow we might end up with 16+ lists this time.  :o

Yay, none of mine are going to make it :P Well, a few will. Still working on it. I need to go through my CDs and see what I can find that anyone else will recognize.

Yeah, I don't listen to all that much rock any more, and find the topic pretty uninspiring.
FINE

I don't get into much of the new, but my old rock (and folk) albums are still what I listen to.

The most current (the last 10 years) artist I like is Lauren O'Connell, but she's more Country, Folk and wasn't included on my list.

A decade or so I tried to expand my musical horizons -as I successfully did with other art and entertainment forms over the course of my life- but after a while it was like, "Who am I trying to kid, I'm a old folkie and a dirty rocker, period!" (give me 3 chords and a cloud of dust and I'm in Heaven)

Got mine in. Never noticed before how many of my favorite bands are either all female or have female lead singers.

I'm guessing you're a fan of the Runaways?  ;)
