in my head, in my head
Posting shall be a bit slow until Monday, lots of family stuff going on in addition to baseball, guitar lessons, mall chauffering and other "I spend my life in my car surrounded by teenagers" things.
Meanwhile, here's something fun from Brian J: what albums can you sing from memory?
There are quite a few albums I can play entirely in my head, from start to finish, every note, every word, in the right order. On some of them, I can even include the part where the album used to skip. My list is way too long, but here's a sampling.
Faith No More - Angel Dust (and really any FNM album, but this one especially)
Pink Floyd - Dark Side of the Moon
Far - Water and Solutions
Led Zeppelin II (to this day I cannot hear Heartbreaker on the radio without thinking that Living Love Maid should follow)
Led Zeppelin IV
Grateful Dead - American Beauty
Fear Factory - Obsolete
Stabbing Westward - Darkest Days
Radiohead - Ok Computer
The Who - Tommy
Weezer - Blue Album
Boston - Boston
Slayer - Diabolus in Musica
Genesis - Trick of the Tail
Brand New - Your Favorite Weapon
U2 - Boy
Nine Inch Nails - Pretty Hate Machine
Clutch - Elephant Riders
There's many more, but these are the first that came to my mind as albums I could play in their entirety solely in my head. And I've done so, when bored and without music. Most times, there's no effort involved. You just start off with the first song on the album and your brain takes over from there.
Obviously, these would all go on a long (but relatively short, when you think of how many albums I own) list of albums/CDs that I listen can listen to from start to finish without skipping any songs.
Anyhow. Off to baseball. I just loaded Boston into the iPod to help pass the time.
