VERY happy to see Wolfstone on the list, vanmojo. I saw them in San Francisco at the March Celtic festival years ago; I think that "close it down" is the best protest song I have ever heard in my life.

Also, Joni Mitchell, who shares space with Peter Gabriel as my favorite artist, period.

Re: Julian Cope's song about the stone circles; you'll be interested to see that Julian wrote and took photos for a great book called "The Modern Antiquarian," which is a comprehensive travelogue with photos of each stone circle in Britain. Fascinating places.

My list:
1. The Emperor Waltz, Johann Strauss II
2. The Dawntreader, Joni Mitchell (from Song to a Seagull)
3. Swords and Knives, Tears for Fears (actually the whole Seeds of Love CD is a magnificent tour de force)
4. You're No Fun, The Tubes (from Now!)
5. You've Got the Love, Chaka Khan & Rufus
6. Big Mouth Strikes Again, The Smiths (from Best of the Smiths, vol. II)
7. Boy Crazy, The Tubes (from The Tubes)
8. An American Tune, Paul Simon (from There Goes Rhymin' Simon)
9. Jigs: Bryan O'Lynn/The Hag with the Money, Steeleye Span (from Please to See the King)
10. Kemence Taksimi/Segah Niyaz Ilahisi, Mevlana Kultur ve Sanat Vakfy Sanatcylary (from The Rough Guide to the Music of Turkey)

uh oh. Looks like I don't ah... listen to the same stuff

Steve Reich "You Are (Variations)"
Youssou N'DOur "Bamba the Poet"
Thee Silver Mt. Zion Orchestra "God Bless Our Dead Marines"
Gavin Bryars "The Sinking of the Titanic"

Bill Frisell "Shenandoah (Live)"
Jon Hassell "Open Secret (Milan)"
Miles David "The Ghetto Walk"
Nobukazu Takemura "A Chrysalis"
Scritti Politti "Brushed with Oil, Dusted with Powder"

Sorry. It's the last ten things on the iPod's Party Shuffle. Probably not much of a party.

Last song for this thread before it moves off the front page.

"The greatest" by Cat power. (a very gentle fall afternoon song, ballad like. It makes you want to softly hug somebody. :D. enjoy)

Lemon: thanx a BUNCH for the Art Ensemble of Chicago track! I haven't listened to them since the last time I owned an LP player.
