To coincide with the 'Rock2Wellington' concert, one of the local music stations is putting on a special 'Bogan Music Weekend', featuring tonight's special Top 100 Bogan Anthem countdown. Some damn fine tracks in there!

I saw Once last week, and walked straight from the cinema to the shop and picked up the soundtrack. It really is a fantastic film and and music is superb. I've listened to it far too much.

I have spent the better part of my morning listening to a-ha.

I made a mistake and tried to listen to the Jonas Brothers cover of "Take on Me"... I made it to about one line into the chorus. There are good cover versions of songs... this wasn't one of them.

This week it was a mix - with Omnes Gentes Plaudite by Mediaeval Baebes, Midsummer by Heather Alexander, and Pict Song lyrics by Rudyard Kipling, sung by Emerald Rose.

*EDIT* I should also confess to listening to a CD of Scottish Polkas....

In light of watching "The Darjeeling Limited"... I got this song stuck in my head now:

"Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)" by Peter Sarstedt

I was working on a playlist for my mp3 player featuring songs and themes from movies...

Got this one on the repeat list in my head. I think it still holds up after all these years.

Ugh. I feel for ya. I loathe the Flo-Bots. I'm usually pretty egalitarian about music but every so often there's a band whose very existence drives me into such an irrational frenzy that I consider jail time to rid the world of them. The Flo-Bots have that current distinction. Waste of monkey [BLEEP], they is!

A bit late to the party, but Nine Inch Nails' Year Zero is my new friend.
The above may be conjecture, deliberate paraphrase, or outright bullshit.

Building a sort of Neo-Pagan/Old Timey/Folk MP3 collection....

O' Brother Where Art Thou is seeing a lot of play, as is some Loreena McKennit, and the Dubliners. Then sometimes I strt listening to a railroad song collection....

Man of Constant Sorrows is just such an epic road tripping song, isn't it?

Yeah - to be honest part of the reason that I want to run a 'Hoboing' game is the wide selection of music I can use to accompany it.

For people playing LotRO, try a little Glass Hammer (particularly their Middle Earth album). With songs like Mithrandir, Sweet Goldberry, and No Crown for Balin, it's a rather flavourful album and recorded to make it sound like the band is playing live at the Prancing Pony.

Ever since I had a tape recorder attached to a phonograph player I would compile themes and songs from various movies onto my own tape.

CDs came around and I did it to some degree, but not quite as I've done before. After all, there are new movie soundtracks and songs all the time, it's more dynamic, it became more of a chore to keep up.

Thus enter the world of mp3 players. I had hesitated for almost a year to start doing Movie theme playlist. Rightfully so, my list has grown from about 32 themes and songs to 70 in about two weeks. And I'm always finding a new song.

There are two songs I've added recently that I keep going back to:
Once from "The Brotherhood of the Wolf".

Religious Man (I am, I am) from "Nacho Libre".

WARNING: The song "Once" features clips from the movie that do contain some moderate spoilers if you haven't seen the film (which I highly recommend.)
