Alright, here's some bands you NEED to junk up your iPod with:
Brian Jonestown Massacre
Bowie's "Diamond Dogs" and, yes of course, "Ziggy Stardust.."
Bob Dylan's "Basement Tapes"
Lee Hazlewood, especially "A Requiem for an Almost Lady"
the GO(They hail from Detroit. check out their myspace.) www.myspace.com/thegodetroit
anyway, that's it for now. Perhaps throw in some Chet Baker or Dizzy Gillespie for good measure.
Hey Magic. The idea of this thread is to post 1 track by 1 band, which you feel would be a fine addition to a random listeners (or Jimmy Snerp's) iPod/generic mp3 player.
Ideally, we'd like a link to the said song on a public site like YouTube or Last.fm. Please don't link to any privately hosted mp3 that would be an obvious copyright issue. Oh and if you number your track that helps too :)
So, from your list, who and what are you gonna pick?
10. Echo & the Bunnymen - Over the wall (1981 or so.)
I almost forgot on them. Some will say, that's a good sign...
It seems they gave a concert in Amsterdam a few days ago.
The crazy interviews with singer Ian McCulloch are legendary.
They wanted fame, like u2, but they failed.
The albums Crocodiles and Heaven up here are still ok
if you listen to them once a year.
7. Pink Floyd - Embryo (8/8/70 @ St. Tropez Music Festival)

Sorry, the previous link cuts the end off. This one is missing about a minute at the beginning, but has most of the ending (but bugger if the bass doesn't cut out at the re-intro after the spacy bit!):
