Sarf, I like your list Although there are a few there that I have yet to hear, and one I've never heard of (Tom Lehrer). Judging by your other selections, I think I need to check these albums out, thanks

Been listening to my Sting collection just lately, and decided his best album (for me) is "The Soul Cages".

Brian Wilson presents ...Smile

This was intended to be the ground breaking Beach Boys album to follow "Pet Sounds" in the late 60's. But it was never completed or released until 2003, some 35 years later!!

BTW, does anyone know what "sunny down snuff" is? as in the line from "Heroes and Villains" ..."and sunny down snuff I'm alright by the heroes and villains".

PS ~ Beach Boys - Pet Sounds

Hey, you plebeians It's the 250th anniversary of Mozart's birth...so go out and get a couple or three Mozart CDs. Recommendations:

the "Great" Mass in C minor, K.427; Sir Neville Marriner, Academy of St Martin in the Fields, et al.

Symphony No. 41; Sir Thomas Beecham, Royal Philharmonic

Piano Concertos Nos. 21 and 27; Rudolf Serkin, piano; London Symphony, Claudio Abbado, cond.

Hmmm...maybe one is in the works, if that Simon guy doesn't boot him off "American Idol"

(edit) just realized--I don't watch American Idol Do judges bump contestants off?? Maybe I had "The Gong Show" in mind

Well in Australian Idol, the judges, well judge and give advice and then the public votes for who they want to keep in the competition. Person with least votes loses. This also makes a fortune for Ten which broadcasts the show..

Ah ok, thanks, The Storm It's probably much the same here--I've only watched isolated clips of the show. I don't think I could watch a whole "episode" though--some of those "contestants" really are given a hard time it appears

I just yesterday bought Love by the Beatles, and just started to listen to it.  It's an 80-minute-long, 26-track "megamix" of many songs, produced by Sir George Martin and his son Giles, and so far it's everything I've heard it is and more!

Strongly recommended.

(edited to correct the details — I've now heard a lot more of it, and it's still strongly recommended.)

I just listened to Love this morning! The Beatles have always been one of my favourites, so it was great to hear remixes of some of my favourite songs.

And I have a copy of something called Mozart's Greatest Hits...seems like it would be a little tough, narrowing it down from all that music...
