Key Lime Pie
Key Lime Pie By Camper van Beethoven (Musical group) Music CD - 1989 CD Popular CAMPER

Pinkerton By Weezer (Musical group) Streaming Music - 1996 Streaming music Access online »

Annotation:Post Blue album, "Pinkerton" was an initial disappointment. Boy was I wrong.

Live at Hollywood High

Wild Planet
Wild Planet By B-52s Streaming Music - 1980 Streaming music Access online »

Annotation:1. Hit play. 2. Dance that mess around. Wild Planet is a primer on what makes the B-52's so fabulous.

Pink Flag
Pink Flag By Wire (Musical group) Music CD - 2006 CD Popular WIRE Available in some locations

Annotation:Defining post-punk is tedious. Stop the debate and put on Wire's "Pink Flag". It's a masterpiece that still holds up.

Eels With Strings
Eels With Strings Live at Town Hall By Eels (Musical group) Music CD - 2006 CD Popular EELS Available in some locations

Annotation:Heart wrenching and compelling songs fronted by a gravelly voice backed by strings.

Seasons in the Abyss
Seasons in the Abyss By Slayer Streaming Music - 2002 Streaming music Access online »

Annotation:Slayer is an easy cliche for non-metal fans. They're all wrong. There's way more to them than 100 Marshall amps. Dive on in.

Workingman's Dead
Workingman's Dead By Grateful Dead (Musical group) Streaming Music - 1970 Streaming music Access online »

Annotation:I didn't want to like the Dead., but this album wormed it's way into my brain. Less jammy, more country fried. Watch out. It'll hook ya.

Favorite records are like good friends. You may take some time apart, but when you meet again, it's like no time has passed. Now that Hoopla here, it makes getting some of them even easier!
