"I Stopped Listening After..." : THE WEEKEND MIX
"...Exile On Main Street."
"...Big Al left."
"...Band On The Run."
I've heard all of these before. Music lovers and so-called fans of these artists, say things like this all the time. I don't get it and I never will.
I've also heard...
"Really? The Monkees?"
"Cheap Trick are still together. God, I hate Can't Stop Falling Into Love."
"Those Hall & Oates videos are hideous."
"Elvis Costello's last good record was Get Happy."
I agree with none of this, well, except the bit about those hideous Hall & Oates videos. It's true, I haven't loved a Stones record since "Steel Wheels," but that doesn't mean I will stop listening to anything they decide to release.
Here are 18 latter day gems from your favorite and not so favorite artists. Let me stop the cynics right now and say, I did NOT pull the one strong track from 18 weak records. As a matter of fact, 13 of the 18 records represented here are some of my very favorites by these artists. The other 5 are far from terrible. We all have bad days.
