Okay, so like I said, yesterday I watched High Fidelity which is a very cool movie. If you aren't familiar with the movie, John Cusack plays the proprietor of a vintage record (you know records, LP's, albums, remember them?) store, and of course he is very into music including newer music although he favors the kind of stuff that had a chance to get produced on vinyl.
Anyway, John and his music store buddies spend a lot of time doing a couple of things in the movie. First, they make a lot of "Top Five" lists like top five side one track one songs, or top five best albums of all time. Second, they make tapes. John even has a brief discourse on some of the secrets of making a good compilation tape. (For anyone out there who might not remember vinyl records, making a compilation tape is a lot like burning downloaded MP3s onto a CD-ROM). I really liked those aspects of the movie, because they reminded me of things my friends and I used to do.
NOW, the other thing that happened to me yesterday is that someone got my hormones all nice and percolated. (You know who you are) Those two parts of my day sort of collided together resulting in my coming up with my list of the top five songs I would want to see on a compilation tape to listen to while ..... well, while getting' some. Of course, I have to share the list with you folks out there in LJ land, and of course, I want to know what songs are on your list. If nothing else, I hope this proves a pleasant distraction on a Monday. OK, here's my list, counting up from number 5:
5. (newest on the chart, but moving up with a bullet) Lady Marmalade - Moulin Rouge Soundtrack
4. Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd
3. You Can Leave Your Hat On - Joe Cocker (9 1/2 Weeks Soundtrack)
2. Let's Get It On - Marvin Gaye
1. Layla (Unplugged Version) - Eric Clapton
