I've got plenty of cooler music, but sometimes it's fun to take a trip down memory lane...

Heard this on the radio today. The lyrics are a bit daft (I think it's about a baby's view of the big bad world) but I like it.

Artist: The Cult
Album: Electric
Track: Aphrodisiac Jacket

First heard this on a Sony Walkman while clearing brush on a farm my g/f and I rented. Produced by the incomparable Rick Rubin, a guy who's going into the history books mega huge. I saw these guys play in Norfolk, VA, a couple years ago. They're the first band I've seen since forever that pushed significantly past the 120dB level, all on the theory that rock should put your eardrums in some jeopardy, I guess. A bit quaint that.

"It is a privilege to be the stand-in for Spencer Tracy. Tracy is a fine actor, but he is most important because he understands why it is necessary to take orders from the front office." Louis B. Mayer, 1938 Academy Awards ceremony

"Why do you not sit on my lap when we talk contracts, like my other stars do?" Louis B. Mayer to Luise Rainer, 1937

"His hand always touched my right tit whenever he said the word 'daughter'." Joan Crawford, regarding Louis B. Mayer, 1938

Love this one, especially for the lyrics.
