*Your favourite record and what it means to you!


Grateful for what I have.
Yeah, I think it's better and more poweful than the original, as Cash has a more powerful and authorative voice and has certainly lived the life that the lyrics look back upon, but Reznor should still be acknowledged as the creator
I heard Johnny Cash first, and was then told it was a Nine Inch Nails song, so of course listened. I absolutely agree with you, two completely valid and authentic readings.

Yes, sorry about that , it is the lyrics website I quoted that from that is to fault there I think. Punks have never really had a proper respect for grammar and spelling. Damn them ! Probably a bunch of council estate prols TBH.;) (was that on purpose lol)

One of my favourites.

I was 16 when it came out, and was an absolute favourite in the school club.

The set on the autochanger was:

Which way you going Billy? The Poppy Family
My Sweet Lord. George Harrison
Woodstock Matthews Southern Comfort
Honey Bobby Goldsborough
Galveston Glen Campbell

There was one young lady whose boast was that by the end of the set, you would have err somewhat soggy underpants. :oops:


Because I could not stop for death
At the moment I'm listening to the Fratellis a lot, especially the album from which this comes.

The lyrics would perhaps have been better written by someone with an understanding of English. 'Tow' to pull along. 'Toe' digit attached to the foot.
I will say it more clearly . The lyrics I quoted clearly use the word tow . Also this thread is called whats your favourite record and why.......... . . . . . . .

Edited (Age deserves respect+dont wanna be banned )

It's not really a fave but it's something which has been in my head for the last week or so. And why not!
I think it's pretty cool but quite sparse but it's all still there innit :D

이달의 소녀

Who'd have thought a song could have "Hashtag Cookie Jar" in its chorus. The Japanese debut song by South Korean band Red Velvet. Oh so catchy: propelled by its retro funky bass and percussion; and not forgetting that cool trickling breakdown. All of which is supported by superb, uplifting vocals. What a bop: one of their best Red side songs.

East of the River Nile - Augustus Pablo
I bought my first copy in the late 70s when it came out
it, along with Joni Mitchell's Blue and John Martin's Solid Air have been constant companions ever since
But its Pablo I could never do without
it was recorded in multiple studios, remixed and finished at Tubbies probably, but I love the way you can hear some stylist twist and guess at the producer - tbf the Blackark stuff is well obvious ...
it is a thoughtful, fully realised run through all the emotions
I love it
I defy anyone to dislike it
From track one, Chant to King Selassie I ,it is perfect
The instrument he's playing is a Hohner Melodica, here's mine.

Like myself, It is a bit ancient and battered, I've had it 45 years. :)

Condescension and embedded self importance
A song, one with the same name as my first love, a girl I haven't seen for over 30years but I still think of a lot.

Hope it doesn't break the rules as much as my heart broke at the time.

In Gorbechev we trust - The Shamen.

I defy any man woman or beast to take a potent amount of halucinogenics with this playing on the stereo and not come out the other end a changed person.
Loved the Shamen since the early indie stuff. In Gorbachev We Trust is indeed n amazing record. I used to have it on tape and tracked down a digital upload a while back as I hadn't heard it in years. Will's death was awful and the band with Mr C in tow were never the same again unfortunately.


my favorite record is from Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers
Islands in the Stream

Every time I listen to this song it just makes me want to dance all over the room and lighten my mood

Jay Park


It’s just flawless innit.

think she was on about gentrification and how it changed her life and relationships, i think, not that gentrification means sweet FA to me cos I swerve it. For many reasons.
