Music I've been listening to

The Clash - My favorite band. Upbeat and slow at the same time.

Notable tracks:

"Rudie Can't Fail"
"The Card Cheat"
"I Fought the Law"
"Lost in the Supermarket"

ect...nearly everything on London Calling

The Who - I bought Who's Next and then The Ultimate Who, but I'm finding that even their poppier, light tracks are depressing. Alienation and immorality in the modern world. I should like them, but I can't handle that right now.

Notable tracks:

"The Kids are Alright" - I don't mind, other guys dancing with my girl. Heartwrenching. Can't stop listening to it. Notably ripped off the Beatles.

Bob Dylan - Been listening to his 3 Greatest Hits albums. Took me a while to get into him, but now I'm in love.

"Lay, Lady, Lay" - first favorite
"Knockin' On Heaven's Door" - everyone knows this song
"Changing of the Guards" - Great.
"Tangled in Memphis Blues" - Can't get it out of my head
"All Along the Watchtower" - powerful

Jimi Hendrix - Wasn't too great of a fan. I don't see why people say he's such an awesome guitarist. Most songs seemed like slow and bluesy R&B.
