Since most of you seemed more interested in my 1997 list than my 2007 list, let's start off the new year with some music that is pre-millennial.
I am curious if anyone else shares my opinion of the song Angel by Massive Attack. Every time I listen to it I feel as if it is the first time I have heard it. I don't know how to describe the sensation other than it is like listening to the future. The rest of their work escapes me but I enjoy this song and the effect it has on my cognition.
I kind of feel that way about the whole Massive Attack catalog. Even listening to their stuff that's 15 years old, I feel like I'm hearing something new. They're a great mix of the organic and robotic - it's just right, not too unbalanced either way.
Ah, Concrete Blonde. Everyone makes fun of me for liking them. I met Johnette once-it was really weird. She grabbed my arm and completely randomly asked, "When were you born?" I told her my birth date, and she freaked out, realizing we had the same birthday-that she'd "had a feeling" about me. Then she insisted she had to tell Nick Cave about me, because he had our birthday, too. She's kind of crazy. And awesome.
Probably one of my favorites yet; There isn't a song here I didn't used to listen to obsessively (with exception of Jane Jensen; My Jane Jensen fixation was always BURNER).
Burner's great, but I like Comic Book Whore a lot more.
She released a new one this year called My Rockabye. It's mellow and acoustic and really doesn't do it for me.
Hmm.. I'll still check it out, thanks for the heads up.
Would you mind putting the track lists to the old ones back up? I know you can't keep the MP3s up, but it would be nice to be ale to say "what was that song on number 7?"
I'd appreciate it too.
Your response is not as good as the maestros, but quite close :)I have learned MY LESSON :D
Inline metadata is all well and good, but is there any way to get at the info without reading the whole stream (which is, to my mind, what the great grandparent and grandparent's sibling were asking)? Reading the code that backs this up suggests no, but *shrug*.
Not as far as I know.
Now, if only there were some way to read the whole stream once and remember the metadata (and even the data) somehow...but fortunately for jwz there isn't since the RIAA would frown on that. No siree, no way whatsoever, and even if there were nobody could tell you about it, since the RIAA, etc. Even if you were somehow to figure this out on your own actually doing it would be totally proscribed behavior. So by no means should you try it.
Of course there is. Modify your streaming client to do it.
Btw.. I was replying to

That's crazy talk, so anyone from the RIAA should just ignore it. The rest of you can continue to go about your business.
That's only if I'm keeping the stream somehow for later reference, which (of course) I'm not doing.
