Well as the film topic seems to still be going I thought it might be good to share thoughts on music.
How about starting with your 10 favourite albums of all time and see where it goes
To kick off here's mine, and these are in no particular order
1. Rubycon by Tangerine Dream
The most beautiful and mysterious record ever made by anyone recorded in 1975 and in my opinion never equaled
2. Goliath by Steve Taylor and the perfect foil
First release for 20 years by Steve Taylor. A Christian lyricist with a razor tongue and wit to match. Goliath has Christian themes in the mix but this isn't praise record, this is rock
3. Dune by Klaus Schulze
Fantastic Symphonic score by Klaus that sums up Frank Herbert's book far better than any movie. This is Instrumental synth music in a classical vein, perfect in vision and execution right down to the synthesised tags on the violin strings
4. Ages by Edgar Froese
Probably not his best (Stuntman or Epsilon in Malaysian Pale are probably more consistent) but strangely this is my favourite of his solo works, very personal and honest, lots of mellotron and a very organic feel quite unlike TD at that time.
5. Yes Songs - have a guess?
My favourite Yes tracks all live on 3 Lp's – yes I know I'm cheating
6. An Ancient Muse - Loreena McKennet
Probably the most beautiful and enchanting record I own. Celtic/Arabesque/folk fusion with a voice to melt your heart
7. Strange Angels – Laurie Anderson
Famous for O Superman, this is her most musical record 'Hiawatha' is a great track as is 'the dream before'
Dream before Lyrics
Hansel and Gretel are alive and well
And they're living in Berlin
She is a cocktail waitress
He had a part in a Fassbinder film
And they sit around at night now drinking schnapps and gin
And she says: Hansel, you're really bringing me down
And he says: Gretel, you can really be a bitch
He says: I've wasted my life on our stupid fairy tale, when my one and only love was the wicked witch.
She said: What is history?
And he said: History is an angel being blown backwards into the future
He said: History is a pile of debris
And the angel wants to go back and fix things
To repair the things that have been broken
But there is a storm blowing from Paradise
And the storm keeps blowing the angel backwards into the future
And this storm, this storm is called Progress
8. Organisation – OMD
My favourite OMD, Was their ever a more perverse single than 'Enola Gay?' the standout track though is surely the Iconic 'Stanlow'
9. Poland - Tangerine Dream
If Rubycon showed TD at their most mysterious then Poland shows them at the height of their powers in a live performance situation (Actually, I could have chosen any 2 Tangerine Dream records from 1971-1982 they are all iconic)
10. You – Gong
I love this incarnation with Steve Hillage 'You' is just so much fun and beautifully played.
I can't believe what I've left out, I've tried to keep this to the more mainstream elements of what I listen too but I realise it still may be quite obscure —sorry.
