Musical Grab Bag

Despite yesterday’s post full of musical errors and grammatical mistakes, I’m going to attempt another post today on music.

I’m spending the day at my desk, finishing up a couple of presentations, papers and assignments. I enjoy having some background music, both to engage with and to cover up any other noises.

I’ve also got a small record, vinyl record , collection that I don’t listen to nearly enough. So for today I created a bit of a game. I select out a record at random for the milk crates and then play the whole thing, sides A & B. This is going to be interesting because I have some very unusual records. Albums I would have never paid more the $0.25 for but found at Goodwilll for cheap.



First pick was Herman’s Hermits – 15 Greatest Hits. Including such gems as “Mrs. Brown You’ve Got A Lovely Daughter” and I’m Into Something Good”





Next up; Queen – Greatest Hits. Everyone knows what would be on this record right?  “Bohemian Rapsody”, “We Will Rock You” and “Under Pressure” to name a few.


Number three: Michael Jackson – Thriller. This is one album that I would have paid more money for. Fortunately I found a decent copy of it used for under 50 cents. I am by no means a Jackson fan, how could anyone be after the last 10 years he’s had? I think that everyone can appreciate this album though.


 My brother popped in and made his selection; Styx – Cornerstone. Not suprisingly I have never listened to this album. In fact the only Styx song I even know is “Come Sail Away”. However I’ve just finished listening to the first track and its not bad. Not great, but I don’t feel like ripping my ears off.

I’ll keep updating throughout the day!

    You’d have paid more money for MJ than Herman???

    You don’t feel like ripping your ears off after the Styx record? That is discipline.

    The first 2 selections are pretty decent. Queen’s greatest hits has some great tracks [Don’t Stop Me Now and Save Me come to mind]. According to Wikipedia, this album is the top selling album of all time in the UK. Who knew?

    You didn’t mention that I, your sister, am the one who pulld out Queen. Pretty good for a blind choice.
