i heard recently too many times "the best of morrissey!" cd and i liked it very much. The guy is the most important composer and singer ever in my opinion and he`ll be this way the rest of my days.
but i was thinking... i am hearing lightnin` hopkins now, he was a great blues singer.
i bought the best of pink floyd and i think it`s wonderful.
i have problems here when i say i love rap and nu-metal.
probably i have 200 cds, cassettes or lps from bach.
i have perhaps 20 cds of schubert lieder and i hear schubert almost every day. Yesterday i was hearing in my car a schubert lieder cd and a guy gave me congratulations. He said almost nobody hear these kind of songs and that he had a collection of it... i thought to myself that if he saw me hearing linkin park very loud i would not receive these congratulations.
as for most of you guys, i hear like you oasis, belle and sebastian and beatles and few more... but normally i don`t hear songs that have the same style of morrissey...
why this? perhaps these bands always lose when compared to my beloved moz...
Like you, I also don't really listen to artists who would really be considered Morrissey's contemporaries. "Britpop" was never really my thing, and Oasis, Suede and Pulp and bands like that...apart from a few songs, I never really got into them.
Of course, having said that, Belle and Sebastian are one of my favorite bands.

hehe... i am glad i am not the only one like this here, lifeguard...

for me too! but perhaps they don`t seem too much britpop...

i have a modest-sized house too, but my father not. So we always go there... and it`s good seeing our relatives sometimes, isn`t it?

it was very good. There was few people there, but everybody was happy.

the title is 'I'm Waking Up To Us' and includes three previously unreleased tracks, 'I'm Waking Up To Us'*, 'I Love My Car'* and 'Marx and Engels' as i have seen in their official page (it seems only moz don`t have an official page, don`t you think it`s funny?). I didn`t heard it yet (i wrote here i heard it but it was a mistake), but surely it must be good. Their last works (jonathan david and fold your hands child you walk like a peasant) were really really great. It`s not that easy for a band maintaing its quality, don`t you think?
have you already heard it?
they went to brazil recently (i didn`t go) and they are making a huge success here, what is a little bit strange. Anyway some boring people seems to like b&s in brazil... but it seems there`s always boring people everywhere...
