Genesis, "Dancing with the Moonlit Knight" (and marveling at Steve Hackett all over again- tapping and hammering years before that VanHalen guy as well as being a master of the volume pedal).

Patty Griffin: Crying Over

We go straight for the thunder, we go straight for the rain
Love leaves a mark, and love leaves a strain.
Back in the saddle, again and again
Millions of eyes and none of them friends.


Her voice just soars on this song. It reminds me that I can survive anything.

Pink Floyd, "Echoes".

It hangs together so well, it's hard to believe it's more than 20 minutes long.

I am listening to "Meddle."

Hubby and I were randomly flipping channels the other night and "Rattle and Hum" was on. That has spurred us to listen to a lot of U2. Joshua Tree just might be in my top 5 albums of all time.

Speaking of which, what are your favorite 5 albums of all time?

Here's mine (I reserve the right to change my mind at a later date, but right now, fairly buzzed, off the top of my head, in no particular order):

U2, Joshua Tree
The Band, The Band
The Beatles: Abbey Road
Bob Dylan: Blood on the Tracks
Bruce Springsteen: Darkness on the Edge of Town

Honorable Mentions: Springsteen: Thunder Road; Dave Matthews Band: Under the Table and Dreaming; David Gray: A Century Ends; Joni Mitchell: Blue; Paul Simon: Graceland; The Police: Synchronicity

Favorites of the last 5 years:

Adele: 21
Florence and the Machine: Lungs
Foster the People: Torches
The Black Keys: El Camino
Mumford and Sons: Sigh No More

Honorable Mentions: Lady Gaga:  The Fame Monster; TV on the Radio: Dear Science; Katy Perry: Teenage Dream

Interesting. I am now listening to Zooropa, which I personally would put ahead of Rattle and Hum. Earlier I had "Born at the Right Time" come up on the iPod shuffle and I thought, this song has really stood up well.

To "Best of the Last 5 Years" I'd add

Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, Raising Sand (barely making the 5-year cutoff)
Fleet Foxes, Helplessness Blues
Arcade Fire, The Suburbs

and my all-time faves include Dark Side of the Moon and Wish You Were Here. DSOM is almost as old as I am.

This is a Tough Question.

I'm going to start with my top five of the last five years, and then tackle the top five Of All Time another day.

Andrew Bird, Armchair Apocrypha
The Gaslight Anthem, The '59 Sound
Titus Andronicus, The Airing of Grievances
Beach House, Teen Dream
Blind Pilot, Three Rounds and a Sound
