Put it in your ears: 3/23

I was sitting in my room listening to Peter Gabriel's album "Hit" last night and a question popped into my mind.

"How many good songs I can find in my library by guys named Peter?"

The emphasis being placed on the word good. I have a lot of songs by Peter Gabriel, but I wouldn't call all of them good by any stretch of the imagination.

(You Gabriel fans know what I'm talking about).

Anyway, here's what I came up with.

Put it in your ears:
Solsbury Hill - Peter Gabriel
Let My Love Open The Door - Pete Townshend
Major Tom - Peter Schilling
Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who (It counts, because Pete Townshend is the guitarist)
In Your Eyes - Peter Gabriel

Get This Song: Carry On Wayward Son

Song: Carry On Wayward Son

Artist: Kansas

Album: Leftoverture

Genre: Progressive Rock

What makes it good: The opening vocals, the picking guitar solos and the fact that it's on the soundtrack to the very best movies ever made.

Thoughts: If my life were a movie, this song would be among the first I'd pick for the soundtrack. It's just such a cool song. It's perfect for the air guitar sessions when you think no one is watching, cruising with the window rolled down, or your once-a-month workout session. Everyone needs this song in their personal collections.

From the same artist:
Dust in the Wind
Point of Know Return
Devil Game

Put it in your ears: 3/16

Maybe it's because I'm just excited for Guitar Hero: Metallica, or maybe it's because I have some pent-up aggression issues I need to work out.

Whatever the reason, I've been listening to the Metal all week. And I love it.

Therefore, my five picks this week are all favorites from Metallica. Enjoy!

Put it in your ears:
...And Justice For All
No Leaf Clover
For Whom the Bell Tolls
The Unforgiven III
Memory Remains

Put it in your ears: 3/9

I'm back, everybody. I didn't think people would mind if I took a little vacation from IYE, but after hearing several "What's the deal?"s, I decided to get back on the trolley.

I hope you'll all forgive my lack of musical post-osity.

To kick off my rebirth, I've decided to put my playlist on random and give you five classics from my archives.

Put this in your ears:
Mulling it Over - Blues Traveler
Wherever I May Roam - Metallica
Either Way - Guster
Run to the Hills - Iron Maiden (GREAT song to sing on Rock Band, by the way, if you ever get the chance)
The Heart of Rock & Roll - Huey Lewis and the News

Expect more posts soon, as the music juices are once again flowing through my veins. Thanks for sticking with me through these troubling times.
