RE: What are you listening to?

Radio 1's Live Lounge (2006) 2 CD dropped through the letterbox this morning so listening to that.

 

There are a few naff songs on the discs, as you'd expect from a compilation, but there's a lot there that are really good and entertaining...some stand out tracks as well, and others, well, not so good; the Arctic Monkeys covering the Girls Aloud's 'Love Machine' (track 2 on CD1) is kråp with kråp on top! Can they actually sing in tune? Horrible noise. When they got to the chorus and tried singing....the horror, plug my ears! Thankfully it got a lot better after that.

12 of  the 20 tracks on CD1 are covers but only 5 of the 20 tracks on CD2 are covers. It would have been better if they'd have all been covers (for my tastes). Would have made it more interesting. I've been surprised anyway, which is always good. And for just £1.65 for a double CD I can't complain too much excellent!

 

(TBH I'd never heard of some of the artists on this double CD...no doubt something to do with my age )

Stornoway – Tales from Terra Firma

This was recommended by a friend, but can't make my mind up about this one... certainly got something about it, but doesn't quite hit the spot for me.

Springsteen -- Nebraska

Frighteningly fresh and (as the dreadful Simon Cowell would say) relevant.
