The game is picking which of 1,001 music albums you've heard. The source is 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die, which like all attempts at comprehensively indexing the best of the arts, is worthy only of mockery and savaging.( The extended comments are under the cut.Collapse )
Result: I've heard the entirety of 380 of these albums, 315 of them from beginning to end at least once. I own 105 of them. Not bad considering the list has a heavy bias towards British acts, some of which never released anything in the US. It'd be interesting to see a similar list compiled from an American perspective.
The cake of love has lots of frostingAttribution dammit: The Book of Love by Magnetic Fields (link points to iTunes music store)
No one finishes the damn thing
It's sweeter than ten Hello Kitties
And absurdly fat'ning.
You can feed the cake to me
I will eat it gratefully.
Out in the town of Blue Springs, Montana
I got big money for hunting down goths.
Nighttime would find me in Starbucks cafes when
Music would play Satan-worshipping rock.
Blacker than night were the cloaks of the goth boys
Wicked and evil while casting their spells
I searched and failed to find sign of the goth boys
I had a mission to save them from Hell.
Night after night I sipped Frappuccinos
Wound up like I couldn't tell
The Starbucks was full, but with soccer moms only
And the occasional father as well.
