Alright, I'm coming clean with my obsession with the soundtrack to Gladiator, the movie starring Russell Crowe. Obviously my displayed name is gladiator, because well frankly it's my favorite movie; but the soundtrack by Hans Zimmer with Lisa Gerrard on vocals has struck a chord with me unlike any piece of music I've ever listened to. I probably by conservative estimates have listened to it at least 100 times in the car, at work(while possible),in my portable CD player and on my computer. Haunting vocals with the power to soothe the stress of a bad day. I always am thankful to music for helping me through the bad times and making life that much better during the good times. Anybody listened to a CD this much? Just curious.

Yep,

John Cougar Mellencamp's Scarecrow and Lonesome Jubilee albums.


I have had a copy in one format or another for the 18 yrs they have been around.

Radiohead - OK Computer...I don't really tire of it...
HttT is good, but the former has a soft spot in my heart. Whenever I get bored of the disc making its rounds in my car, OK Computer often gets a play.

Kate Bush "Hounds of Love" and Thomas Dolby "The Flat Earth" have been played too many times for me to count on Cassette, CD and MP3. Newer music has been VNV Nation "Burning Empires" and Conjure One "Conjure One" (gotta get the new CD).

Hmm, since MP3ising most of my collection, I don't listen to one particular CD over and over as much, I tend to pick and choose favourite tracks. I've probably listened to both of Disturbed's albums and Korns Greatest Hits album a lot of times, though. Of course, the best way to track is with a last.fm page (used to be audioscrobbler)

Umm, Gordon Lightfoot? I listen to it at work a lot. I also go through my ApologetiX spells when I listen to their CDs for days on end.

'Meddle' by Pink Floyd. The track 'Echoes' is probably my favourite piece of music, I've been playing it for over 20 years....since the days before CDs.

I too am quite a fan of Lisa Gerrard, and have several 'Dead Can Dance' albums which I listen to a lot.

At the risk of sounding like an internet cliche: me too [Big Grin] . It's been on repeat since it came out (particularly 'I Will Follow You Into The Dark'). I think it's my favourite album of theirs.

Was thinking about getting into Sigur Ros a bit more. Will follow up your recommendation.

Also, 'Grace' by Jeff Buckley never gets old. Nor does 'I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning', by Bright Eyes.

I'm also fond of Plans (especially "Soul Meets Body" and "I Will Follow You into the Dark").

I also tend to repeat Demon Days by the Gorillaz and Ta Det Lugnt by Dungen.

My music pattern is this:

1. Get a sudden thrill after hearing some music
2. Don't rest until name of music is found
3. Buy album from iTMS
4. Listen on repeat, in a state of ecstasy, until the music is stripped of all meaning
5. Dump the tracks into my huge playlist full of other, similarly treated music
6. Repeat

At the moment, it's the soundtrack to Requiem for a Dream.

I go in cycles. I'll listen to a new piece of music or a CD over and over and over until the next thing comes along.

The current disc doing its share of spinning in my car is Our Lady Peace's new album, Healthy in Paranoid Times. It takes a few listens to grow on you, but after that, it's pretty sweet.

/me thanks Skylar & i_need_a_pillow for the vote of confidence! I don't think DCFC are that well known in the UK (yet), but hopefully they will tour here sometime.

Curiously just prior to reading this thread I was enjoying the album "Gorilla" by the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band, which contains the song "Death Cab for Cutie"

<Harry Hill moment>
What's the chance of that happening eh?

"Mosquitos" by Stan Ridgway. I can't seem to tire of it. Along with the 1968 Rafael Kubelik recording of Mahler's First.

Loaded by the Velvet Underground (I know, it's their "pop" album, but I really like it). Randy Newman's Good Old Boys, Bob Dylan's John Wesley Harding, The Beta Band's Three E.P.'s and Pete Townshend's Lifehouse.

Before I joined the iTunes revolution I tended heavily to Pink Floyd discs, especially The Wall, The Division Bell, Dark Side of the Moon, Relics and their first post-Waters live effort, Delicate Sound of Thunder.

U2's Achtung Baby got a lot of play, too, as well as some of their other albums.

Now I have smart playlists set up in iTunes so I don't hear any single track more than once every 1 - 5 weeks, depending on the star rating. But if I did incessantly play a modern album it would probably be Green Day's American Idiot. I don't actually have it, but I've liked everything they've played on the radio from it so far.

Edit: Fixed some typing goofs.

A pretty obscure EP from Triple J Unearthed, Yunyu a little over a year ago from Perth.

She has such a unique voice and sound. "A Prayer" is an absolute gem of a track. Check it out on iTMS!

Ugh. I grew up in Toronto and Kitchener, and 102.1 was usually the only station available for rock music, so I found myself listening to a lot of CDs.

102.1 is absolutely TERRIBLE. They overplay the shit out of everything, and the guys on the Dean Blundell show in the morning are fucking OBNOXIOUS. The show would have been great if it wasn't for Re-Todd's consistent stupid interjections and (failing) attempts at humour.

And the day they started playing Eminem (ON A NEW ROCK STATION) is the day I switched the dial, removed it from my car stereo memory, and never listened to it again.
