Rhoda's Favorite Music: Part One

Because I’m in a list-making mood and why not?

For a number of reasons, it occurred to me I’ve never done a comprehensive list of all my bandoms. I post music-related stuff fairly often, especially when I’m in SHINY NEW BAND, BUY ALL THE THINGS mode, as I am now. Still, it is very difficult to narrow my faves down to 10. I have my All-Time Favorites, which don’t change, and I’m pretty sure everyone knows what they are. (If you don’t, you’re about to.) There are four of them, so my Top 5 are those plus the New Shiny.

But what about the rest of them? My “favorites” on a lower tier than my All-Time Faves, music I really love but not on obsession-level anymore? I’m talking about bands I’ve probably seen live once or twice, that I have all or most of their albums, former BUY ALL THE THINGS artists that have since been shuffled down to my regular rotation. For now, I’m not including solo artists or bands I just *kinda* like but haven’t formed a strong emotional attachment to, or bands that I’ve shelved for later because I know I’d be totally obsessed if I looked them up properly. (This shelf is necessary. You guys know how I get when I have a new obsession. That's a year-long commitment or longer, depending on how many albums they have out by the time I find them.)

This is going to be a three-parter. “5 favorite songs” are the first ones that occur to me, because it is never just five songs. I’m not listing concert DVDs or documentaries unless they come with an accompanying audio disc.

Right--let’s do this!

I just spent several minutes trying to figure out where the hell the mysterious rustling noises were coming from.

One of my cats (Alex) was entirely hidden within the depths of a shoebox-size Priority Mail box. He has just now emerged, and his sister Erin has vanished inside.

No cat photos because I don't have an X-Ray camera.

If the movie is like the trailer, this may be the most perfect adaptation ever made. Oh hai Mark.

I did NOT successfully talk myself out of buying that new TBM CD, in case you were wondering. It came in the mail last week and I have now listened to it five times in a row. Cannot pick a favorite song. Here is one of many:



So yep, I'm still in this hole, and not at all interesting in coming back out. I may or may not be knitting a black-and-purple wristband since I can't find any merch elsewhere. (Related: I have acquired yarn for most of your projects! I'll check back in a few weeks if I need more information. If you didn't raise your hand last time and still want a scarft/wristband/whatever, let me know!)
