I have this method of ranking music in my library, which currently consists of 34,968 songs: By default, all new songs in my library get ⭐️⭐️⭐️. As I listen to them, I sort them as follows: ⭐️ means it’s “rubbish” and I’ll probably delete it from the library, ⭐️⭐️ means it’s just “meh” but I’ll probably keep it, ⭐️⭐️⭐️ means it’s okay and we will probably talk over it, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ means I really like and may potentially sing at random, ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ means everyone better shut the fuck up because my song is on! You know the kind of songs I’m talking about. We all have them.
These are mine, one post at a time.
I’m starting my approach to this with songs I’ve given ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ to in iTunes. There’s only 90 of them at the moment. I’ll probably sneak in an occasional ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ as well.
We’re still on with the duets.
One of those bands that got stuck in my brain when I was in high school was what later became the group known as The KLF. Most people either recognize that name from either the 1990 songs “What Time is Love?”, “3 a.m. Eternal”, or possibly the 1988 “Doctorin’ the Tardis” (done as The Timelords). A LOT of song samples were used on their earlier works that landed them in a lot of trouble with record artists and labels. But they were well done. In my brain at least.
I still have no idea how they managed to talk Tammy Wynette, the “First Lady of Country Music”, into doing this song, but they did. And it works. In my brain at least.
I present The KLF’s 1991 “Justified and Ancient (Stand By The JAMs)” featuring Tammy Wynette:
Until next time...
