Music for January

So something new here – going to try to remember to post what I’ve found in my music each month, both new additions (if any) and gems that iTunes dug up for me.

For January, I added a few new albums:

Raditude (Weezer)

To be honest, not their best effort. The first few songs are decent – “(If You’re Wondering If I Want You To) I Want You To” is catchy, the next few tracks are okay but kind of different from what I think of as Weezer songs (more pop, and I don’t necessarily mean that as a compliment). The rest of the album doesn’t stick out in my memory.

Sounds of the Universe (Depeche Mode)

I only bought it for “Wrong.” Don’t think I’ve listened to any of the rest of it yet.

Blown To Smithereens [Greatest Hits] (Smithereens)

This is one of those bands I forget I love, and then it comes up in a shiffle playlist and I go and listen to everything I have of theirs, most of which is “11”. Still, good to have in the collection.

The Best Of Warren Zevon

Had this as a cassette when I was younger. Not sure why I bought it then. This time, I know – aside from “Werewolves Of London”, there’s also “Roland The Headless Thompson Gunner” and “Excitable Boy.” Probably a bunch of others that as I hear them, I’ll be dredging up memories from 20 years ago.
