Been listening to a lot of Fleetwood Mac stuff lately.

Is Rumours work a listen? I can get it from the library but know so little about the band i've never got to getting it out. Is it worth the 85p rental charge?

Rumours is often said to be one of the greatest albums ever made, and I can see why. With the exception of ''Oh Daddy'', I really love all the songs on there. All songs are so strong, there are hardly any fillers. So yeah, it's definitely worth a listen.

I agree with L – I was a bit of a fan years ago and that was one of the albums I liked – I think it is worth a go.  If you don't like that one then you are not likely to enjoy any of their other later albums.  They had quite a different sound early on though, a bit like Pink Floyd in that regard.

I'm not a big fan of Rumors but I don't think that it's bad album at all. I've been listen a lot of Paul McCartney stuff these days, especially because of the album "New".

This got lost when we lost 3 days (reminds me of a Red Dwarf episode) – its not an exact repost. 

Love this song: Rose Garden by Lynn Anderson. Any song that has the word melancholy in it and gets it to rhyme with another deserves to be liked. I like songs where the singer doesn't harp on about life being next to useless and they might as well drink a bottle of bleach now the loved one has went off with someone else, or that every day is going to be filled with rainbows and tweeting birds (its why On The Way is one of my favourite Paul songs – am going to listening to that next now).

^^Based on your description, I thought you might like this one:

Do you like songs that are stories?

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8Yeah, those are fun to listen to, not at all serious either which is cool, I thought i'd be hearing some really depressing stuff when the first one started up. The jangly guitar in the second is fantabulous. 

Story-wise, like any song it depends what the song is like melody and lyric-wise, don't want anything that makes you want to drink that bottle of bleach yourself. 

Have been raiding the libraries for music (as i've mentioned here quite a few times) and been listening to Bob Dylan and Bruce Springstein over the last couple of days, both could/can write stories very well. Dylan's track Tempest (from the LP with the same name) about the Titantic is excellent (it's not on youtube).

If anyone hasn't heard it 'Roll On John' (from the same album, Tempest) is a gorgeous tribute to John (the video below for some reason has 6 minutes of silence at the end in case anyone is put off by a 13 minute track).

^^  I'm a big Springsteen fan, have all his stuff as well.

Song I'm humming now is Only A Northern Song.  I suspect it is not very popular but just sticking in my brain at the moment (still in 1969 on my listening saga).

Pink Floyd's Animals in general, but particularly Pigs (Three Different Ones). The ''Hey you Whitehouse, ha ha, charade you are./You house proud town mouse, ha ha, charade you are'' bit I've had stuck in my head all weekend.

This album's growing on me more and more all the time.

I'm on a huge Radiohead kick right now. Huge Radiohead kick. When combined with the power of my already existing constant Beatles and Nirvana kicks, I could play professional soccer.ahdn_ringo_09

Oasis-Whatever and Live forever

I don't know why but all of a sudden I'm into Oasis, a band I never really cared for. And these two songs make me feel so happy and confident for some reason. I've been listening to them a lot.

I wouldn't say "on a kick" exactly, but I've had Ringo's "Beaucoups Of Blues" in my head today.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.
