What Are YOU Looking For?
« on: July 16, 2007, 05:07:59 PM »
Here's an idea I've been kicking around in my head for a while. This is a chance for those of us with substantial NON-digital music collections to maybe help each other out.

What songs have you been trying to find online that have completely eluded you? I'm talking legal music purchase sites, bittorrents, everything. Post your list here and let's see what happens.


Stuff I'm looking for (items I have on vinyl are indicated with an *; I'm just too lazy to hook up my turntable and record them on the computer):

Wild Blue Yonder - The Screaming Blue Messiahs (I finally got I Wanna Be A Flintstone within the last week-and-a-half, but this one still eludes me)

*Swamp Thing - Malcolm McLaren

*Walk The Dog - Laurie Anderson (a live version of this is commonly available on one of her compilations, but the far superior studio version, which originally appeared on one of Warner Records' excellent Killer B's compilations, has proven more difficult to come by)

*Conversation With A Dog - Sting (the flip side to We'll Be Together; good freakin' luck finding it)

*Soy el Blanco - Joe Jackson (a Spanish-language version of the song Target, from the superlative Night And Day album; it appears on a 12" single, and I've had no luck tracking it down in digital form)

Doctor Detroit - Devo (everything I've seen leads me to the inexorable conclusion that the film Doctor Detroit, starring Dan Aykroyd, is to be avoided at all costs; however, the title song is as wonderful as it is apparently unattainable)
 
*Nasty (a cappella  version) - Janet Jackson (this appears on the 12" single to Nasty, and, when slowed down from 45rpm to 33rpm, is one of the funniest party records of all time)
"All I ask of you is one thing: please don't be cynical. I hate cynicism -- it's my least favorite quality and it doesn't lead anywhere.
Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get. But if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen."

A song called (censored for family reading) F$#& Off by artist unknown it was on a compilation out in the mid nineties called Sharks patrol these waters. Whoever the artists are they're northern English.

There is a "dance version" on the Pioneers Who Got Scalped set and it really isn't that different than the movie/video version.

That mix sounds very similar to the single version I remember; I think I might be happy now.  :)

The cassette version has this as the last track:

Fuck Off - Mindless Drug Hoover

However, it's not listed on the CD version.

That's the one, and it's on the CD (cause I remember listening to it on repeat) but apparently not listed. Excellent!

I think it might only be on the UK version. Since it's only available used, you might be able to check with actual seller as to its contents.

Reputedly her entire discography, which lists Walk the Dog a couple of times.

You're a prince, mrbasehart; but unfortunately, both times it appears are the exact same live version that I've been avoiding since the first time I heard it. Thank you for trying, though  :)

Well shoot.  The best torrent engine I know is www.isohunt.com - you could try looking through some of the search results there.  If you want to be a filthy pirate (like me) that is.

Apparently, it's available on the download version of the soundtrack to Ocean's 13. Looks like the regular CD just has the original version. I'm at work where I don't have access to iTunes, so you'll have to check and see.
