I like your selections too. I love that Engima song. The words are so great! And Stigmata is my fave Ministry song. My friends I used to go see bands like that in concert. I remember a Nitzer Ebb concert that we went too where we got pretty tossed around by all the moshing and us being three very short girls! It was awesome!
Yeah, I have seen the Hunger. I don’t think there is a goth or ex-goth who hasn’t. :)
I just remembered a few other things that would definatley define my life “soundtrack” – although they really don’t fall under an album one artist per se:
Lollpalooza! I remember the first one and we went every year after that for a while. Those are the greatest inventions in concerts. It always rained at those things. Lollpalooza = mud.:)
I also remember Woodstock ‘94 (25th anniversary of Woodstock) – I drove all the way to NY to see that thing and it was awesome (and muddy!). I felt so gypped that I missed out on the first original one and considered myself to be born a decade too late and I said “I gotta go to this!”. I am sure the original was the best but at least a got to experience something like it! :)
Oh, the memories! Outdoor concerts really are great! :)
queenfluff Lollapalooza and Woodstock ‘94 must have been great!
I was so close to going to Woodstock ‘94. I don’t even live far from there, but I had to work. Oh well….
But I appreciate all the other times I was able to see good shows (and even some not so good ones!)
Last night I saw a pretty talented local Irish band. I’m beyond mosh-pit capable these day, but this was a small venue and the band had great energy. It was fun ~ And the 1 non-raw IPA pint of brew I had was pretty damn good too :)
I definatley have my non-raw pint of ale every now and than and don’t feel guilty about it all! New Castle is my favorite. :) I can’t drink any see-through beer – my body hates it. It has to non-see-through for me to drink it. :) I always ask what is the darkest beer you got?
Woodstock ‘94 was great! The mud was so thick that my boots (dr marten types) got stuck in the mud and my foot feel out. But it was risky to run around barefoot because of possible broken glass etc. My main memory – besides the nude people – was that I went to the other side of the concert because I heard they had a vegetarian burrito over there. I was getting sick of the choices near our tent (basically cheese pizza for me at the time). So I slid over mud hill after mud hill to get there and when I got there the guy was like “You look like you traveled a long way to get here”. Ha ha! I was like “Yes, I heard you had vegetarian burritos here and I want one!” So, I got my burrito – but it really wasn’t that good. :)
One my best shows I went too was an Irish band called the Muck Brothers back in Chicago. Moslty so fun because they were high energy and my friend and I bounced and jigged and they had good ale! ;)
wow, some really good stuff! gotta say chicory, im with you on arlo guthrie anyone who can use the word pickle in a song!!! teehee

O.K., the soundtrack of my life would definitely include these artists:
Belle and Sebastian
There are many others that I love, but might not put on a desert island disc. I was in several bands back in the day, but couldn’t think of anything more boring than listening to myself over and over again.
My soundtrack goes just about everywhere. My parents listened to country western so that plays a big part in my life. Then my brothers and sister played rock n roll then rock
So I am the strange one so mine goes something like this
Dolly Pardon, Little Blossom
House of the rising sun, donâ€™t know who does it
Beatles Beatles Beatles
Shocking blue, Venus
Blue oster cult (old weird stuff)
Black Oak Arkansas
Lots of old country
Top ten bubble gum music (that is what my brother called it)
Big time Linda Rhonstat
Beatles Beatles Beatles
Hawkwind, like â€œSonic Attackâ€
And yes I watched Lawrence Welk ALL the time
And Ballroom dancing, back when there was no big stage just a open space in the floor surrounded by tables of people, with numbers on their backs
Dwight Yokum, fast as you
Native American Music
And I love Frank Sinatra and the whole Rat Pack
Rocco Deluca and the Burden
Just to many to mention
And did I mention the Beatles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just mix it up all the time. I even have been known to listen to some rap with my daughter.
Jeff Buckley- “Everybody Here Wants You”
Led Zep- “Since I’ve Been Loving You”
Motley Crue- “Looks That Kill” and “Hell on High Heels”
The Doors- The entire Morrison Hotel album will do..
Elvis- “Just Pretend” is my favorite, but seeing as though I’m devoted enough to tatoo his name on my body, anything from him will do
The Beatles – A day in the life, John lennon – watching the wheels, beautiful boy, Kate Bush – Suspended In Gaffa, And Dream Of Sheep, Hounds of Love, Breathing, Mother stands for comfort, watching you without me, and so many more by her, The Cocteau Twins – summerhead, carolyn’s fingers, and pretty much all their songs and albums (Four calender cafe is out of this world), The Innocence Mission – Birds of my neighborhood (whole album), Small Planes (Whole album), Surreal….
Went down to the Peppermint Lounge (the second one, not the one that closed in 1965!) in NYC to see her play when I was 16…it was great… also was able to see the English Beat at The Ritz (before the band broke up and formed General Public) ...
