The List, 2008, #70-61

And here’s the next installment of my 2008 Top 100 Favorite Records list.

The Lilys entry down there has my feeble attempt at a music video. As a video, it sucks, I know; but I just wanted to make something to look at while the song was playing.

70
The Police 1980
Zenyatta Mondatta
The studio solo from "Driven To Tears" is a thing of beauty.
69
Lilys 1994
A Brief History of Amazing Letdowns
The Near-Perfect EP.
68
ZZ Top 1973
Tres Hombres
"A haw haw haw!" Yes, exactly, haw haw.
67
Neil Young 1979
Live Rust
Sugar Mountain sounds like a nice place. I wish I was 4 again.
66
Rolling Stones 1972
Exile On Main Street
Keith sings "Happy" and that’s all that matters.
65
Yo La Tengo 1995
Electr-O-Pura
Twelve years past, and I still don’t know what "Tom Courtenay" is about, even though it’s my favorite YLT song.
64
Nirvana 1991
Nevermind
Less dangerous than you might remember. But still entertaining!
63
Gillian Welch 1996
Revival
Her first record. A star is born.
62
The Doors 1967
The Doors
Does the day divide the night, or does the night divide the day? Which is to be master, is the question. To start off with your best record is both triumph and tragedy.
61
Pink Floyd 1977
Animals
He converteth me to lamb cutlets!

And the histogram for #100-#61 looks like this:

Next exciting installment will be out on Monday!
