Mood: subvert normality.
Music: Clinic - Harvest

I'm bored and have decided to list what I consider to be my "stages" in music. I never really listened to anything until I was around 11 or 12, and my tastes have only improved with time.

11-13: chick pop (Cleopatra, B*Witched, Britney Spears)
12-16: alternative chick rock (Garbage, Tori Amos, Alanis Morissette)
14-16: electronica/dance/trance (Ferry Corsten, Puretone, ATB)
15-present: indie (The Wrens, Clinic, QoTSA before they got popular)
19-present: post-rock (Mogwai, Russian Circles, Holy Fuck)

Don't get me wrong, I'm still fond of the majority of the groups I used to love (Garbage, anyone?)--my tastes have just expanded with time. The years aren't entirely accurate; for example, I first discovered & enjoyed post-rock when I was 17ish, but I didn't really get into it until I was 19. There are other stages that are worthy of note: Brit Pop, Radio Pop, and 70s/80s Punk, among others. The above are what I currently consider to be the major influences in my life.

As a group of us went to Thousand Hills this afternoon, we heard Kill All Hippies by Primal Scream on the radio. My life is now complete. You got the money, I got the soul... can't be bought, can't be owned...

damn! I can access my life in musical stages as well. I need to listen to more Mogwai, what I've heard of them is awesome. and for the record I really was starting to think I was the only person who remembered Cleopatra.

i'm just glad my musical taste expanded beyond Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera... oh, 7th grade... (*shudders*)

Mogwai is fucking AMAZING. My favorite tracks are Hunted by a Freak, Folk Death 95, Friend of the Night, and You Don't Know Jesus, but I honestly can't think of a track by them that I didn't love. If you'd like, I could send you a few mp3s.

You remember Cleopatra??!?!?! Oh man! EXCITEMENT! I loved them.

ugh, same here. I used to have a Sugar Ray CD- and not even when they were big, after that, when they really got bad.....but I've had some bad taste through the years...some really bad taste.

I have "Folk Death 95"- but that'd be awesome if you could send a few my way. I'll repay you with gratuitous sexual favors over time.

I remember Sugar Ray! I, uh, can't remember more than one or two singles... but still!

Mogwai - Hunted by a Freak
Mogwai - Glasgow Mega-Snake
Mogwai - Friend of the Night

And some of my Favorite Post-Rock Tracks Ever:

I'll take those gratuitous sexual favors any time you want ;) O:-)
