mine's let's dance - david bowie.
zuma - mum
and Harvest by Neil Young.
oh, and i remember listening to a Hall and Oates record they owned when i was younger.
this song was my favourite:
i should probably stay off the music forum, sorry.
If so then REM - The Best Of The IRS Years - Mum.
All my mothers Blondie LP's, just can't beat it. Shame she's now into The Noisettes and I have to purposely 'lose' the cd so It can't be played at barbecues.
But yes, Blondie, love her records. My dad's is basically the Beatles LP anthology but my brother, sister and dad play the Beatles 24/7 and its tragically annoying, so mum, you win on this count.
Try 'accidentally' dropping the noisettes cd into the barbecue, it might get rid of it once and for all.
The Beatles get annoying after a while. (here comes the hate)
Beatles do get annoying, I've said it many times, In fact I've had to throw the damn Beatles Rock Band out of the house it gets on my nerves so much, It's all they ever go on every day.
As for the Noisettes CD well last I checked it was in her car and scratched to fuck.... wonder who did that?
....though I didn't appreciate it at the time......
- Johnny Johnson & The Bandwagon.
a load of michael jackson songs
the cars - drive
mr mister - broken wings
r.e.m - everybody hurts
ben e king - stand by me
brucce hornsby - look out any window
all from my mother
Assuming you don't count records that I also own: Talking Heads, Bowie, Fleetwood Mac etc
why buy your own copy when you can 'borrow indefinitely' your parents' copy? aha.
pilgrimage is great, i pinched it last year, gonna steal some more prog from my dad and see if there's owt as good as that in there this time.
well, probably Nosferatu D2 & Benjamin Shaw...but outside of things I forced into their palms:
Carole King - Tapestry
Nirvana - Nevermind
Fleetwood Mac - Rumours
Lou Reed - Transformer
Meat Loaf - Bat Out Of Hell 1 & 2
mum's finest hour
My mom mostly listens to chanting monks, which is kind of neat I guess.
wow, they beat the hell out of my mum's westlife cd |:
Got me into the smiths.
go on dad.
it should be a law that someone in the family likes radiohead.
Dad: ZZ Top - Eliminator
Mum: Lou Reed - Transformer
god i love that album
Harvest - I love that record.
Or also some Bowie - The Man Who Sold the World. Or do I prefer Ziggy?
My dad owned White Light White Heat back in the day for about 3 hours but took it back disgusted once he'd had a single listen to it, ELO was more his thing - nothing wrong with that of course. If he'd have rocked Sister Ray once or twice for my infant ears I would've probably liked him a lot more.
As far as I know I think he sold all the vinyls for peanuts - I would've stolen the good ones if I'd have known.
somewhere between bob marley live in london and john lee hookers guest album.
but right behind it:
Van Morrison - Astral Weeks
Frank Sinatra - Wee Small Hours...
Coltrane - Blue Train
My dad was given it by a colleague when we moved to Wales (I was about ten).
Meatloaf, Queen, Tracy Chapman. My dad's quite into Elbow, but I'm not so fussed. They enjoyed the National on the last car journey we had though (I think they fall in the Alligator camp).
It's fucking incredible. Mainly because it includes Oh What A Night and In The Summertime.
Ramones - It's Alive
Captain Beefheart - Trout Mask Replica
Tom Waits - The Heart Of Saturday Night
Talking Heads - Remain In Light
I owe them
It's not that, that's my second favourite. It's actually Look Sharp by Roxette.
What. A. Record.
I liked how the tape folded out showing loads of newspaper clippings.
'WHAT IN THE WORLD COULD MAKE A GREY EYED GIRL TURN BLUE?'
Which my grandmother tried to bin because she thought it said "raper's delight".
Although someone gave it them as a present and they thought it was rubbish.. not sure if it still counts
but my mom did use to exclusively listen to Frank Sinatra. So I guess one of those
Mum - Stop Making Sense
Mum: Girls Aloud or Lady Gaga. I usually borrow pop albums from her rather than buy them myself.
Dad: Dusty Springfield best of, but there's not really much choice. He's had the same five CDs in his car stereo since he broke up with my mother a decade ago, and four of them are pink floyd albums.
Something by Cilla Black, T-Rex and Status Quo. I listened to that everyday for about 6 months.
My Mum has 2 Manics albums, as she had apparently started getting used to hearing me blast them out all the time and actually loved 'Tsunami'.
where she tries to sing 'Tsunami' sometimes around the house, getting the words slightly wrong, like:
'A tsunami, a tsunami, tide came in and washed right over me')
Kris Kristofferson "me and bobby mcgee"
Beatles - Rubber Soul
and some 80s space funk that I really need to check out again because it was great.
than to meet your parents.
The Sounds of Silence.
Nice one pa.
Oh the hours of car journeys spent singing along in mock scottish accents, sounds irritating but it was either that or Robbie. Nah, they don't really buy music although it's weird becuause the way my Dad talks about music you'd think he was really into it - guess it's something they sort of gave up.
I am converting my Mum though - she recently told me she quite likes those Radioheads and she's considering coming to a Joanna Newsom concert with me.
but it's not really the same as owning something really cool from the 70s.
I suppose the coolest record they own is Bowie- Ziggy Stardust. Some Springsteen ones. Different Class, that was always a big one when I was growing up. Some Cure records, Talking Heads, the soundtrack to 'Local Hero'. ABBA- Arrival.
Bat out of Hell II
Bat out of Hell
A Night at the Opera.
My mum got me into Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye.
Mum: Holst - The Planets
Fleetwood Mac - Tango in the Night
Both soundtracks to some Godforsaken part of the UK on family holidays...
I think my parents owned four albums: that, a Boston Pops box, Englebert Humperdink and the original 1965 pressing of The Sound of Music movie soundtrack.
Stevie Wonder- Innervisions
Plus a Thin Lizzy seven inch with Don't Believe A Word and Dancing In The Moonlight on it. Dunno who owned which. Probably my mum.
My dad liked Earth Wind and Fire and Toto. Result.
I enjoyed it.
Probably one of my favourites ever too - cheers Dad
The Beatles - A Hard Days Night
Buddy Holly - Buddy Holly
From my maw:
Rory Gallagher - Deuce
Led Zeppelin - IV
but my favourite thing is a 7 inch which the Damned gave out at their first shows. It's signed by the band. He used to get a load of stuff like this because his friend Adrian used to write a punk fanzine and got him into shows. When Adrian stopped writing zines he became the keyboard player for The Human League. Once he gave me some Scalextric. True story.
other than a C&W compilation album.
The in-laws did drop some vinyl round when they moved recently, this included.
A Leo Sayer Album
Richard Clayderman - The Classic Touch
Cilla sings a Rainbow
Geoff Love and his Orchestra play your top TV themes
Chas N Daves Knees Up
though i can't remember any other cd's which aren't classical (though classical is great obv)
and i've never listened to kenny g. it's just the only one i can remember
by the fall
1 x Adam & The Ants
1 x Blondie
and everything Sparks have ever recorded.
'Slow Train Coming' - Bob Dylan
'Mule Variations' - Tom Waits
'Peel Slowly & See' - Velvet Underground
'I Feel Love' (7") - Donna Summer
Probably a couple others but they're what spring to mind immediately.
