If you had to make up a list of songs that really created the feeling of you, as a person. What would be on it?

For me if you take the feelings from all the Nine Inch Nails songs together then you know me.
"Piggies," on the White Album

"Got to get you into my life," Revolver (methinks)

"Rhapsody in Blue," Gershwin

"Asteroid Chase," Empire Strikes Back.

Oh yeaaah!

Beethovan's Ninth
Not the Man I used to Be by FYC
Elegia and Morning Sun by New Order
Democracy by Leonard Cohen - that's my country :)
Dear God by XTC
2000 Lightyears by the Rolling Stones

And, for I am not always so serious:

Number 13 by the Pixies
Sexuality by Xenia

One would think that youngster like you would listen to Backstreet Boys or something... :bugeye:
But no, you listen to music that even I have prescribed as too ancient to reach my ears.
But I do like Beethoven though, classical music is in a category of its own.

Well, the songs I really like are by swedish artists unknown to you, so it´s no use even mentioning them. Except for Abba then, they are the theme music to my childhood, and now too, they will never go out of date. :D

Backstreet Boys, Bebe? Oooh, you made 'Custard' mad.

*Sulks, forgets why she was sulking, and wanders off singing:
See that girl
Watch that see
She is the dancing queen
Wooo woo*

C'mon Bebe, tell us, even if they are in Swedish.
Well then anything with Ted Gärdestad, Di Leva and Bob Hund and Noice and Broder Daniel....:)
Well, I guess there are plenty of nutcases...erhh, lumberjackloving abaltrosses to go around.
Rooster - Alice in Chains
Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who
Stray Cat Blues - Stones

I'll think of some more later.
Roger Waters - Amused To Death (the whole album) and Pink Floyd (except for their very early work, from the late '60's) will do the trick for me. :)

And Camel - The Snowgoose, now that's a wonderful album. Anyone here who knows it? :)

Asshole: Dennis Leary

Folks, I’d like to sing a song about the American Dream
About me, about you
About the way our American hearts beat way down in the bottom of our chests
About that special feeling we get in the cockles of our hearts
Maybe below the cockles,
Maybe in the sub cockle area,
Maybe in the liver, maybe in the kidneys,
Maybe even in the colon, we don’t know

I’m just a regular Joe, with a regular job
I’m your average white, suburbanite slob
I like football and porno and books about war
I got an average house, with a nice hardwood floor
My wife and my job, my kids and my car
My feet on my table, and a Cuban cigar

But sometimes that just ain’t enough to keep a man like me interested
(oh no, no way, uh uh)
No I gotta go out and have fun at someone else’s expense
(woah yeah, yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah)
I drive really slow in the ultra fast lane
While people behind me are going insane

I’m an asshole (he’s an asshole)
I’m an asshole (he’s an asshole, such an asshole)

I use public toilets and I piss on the seat
I walk around in the summer time saying “how about this heat”

I’m an asshole (he’s an asshole)
I’m an asshole (he’s the world’s biggest asshole)

Sometimes I park in the handicap spaces
While handicapped people make handicap faces

I’m an asshole (he’s an asshole)
I’m an asshole (he’s a real fucking asshole)

Maybe I shouldn’t be singing this song
Ranting and raving and carrying on
Maybe they’re right when they tell me I’m wrong

I’m an asshole (he’s an asshole)
I’m an asshole (he’s the world’s biggest asshole)

You know what I’m gonna do
I’m gonna get myself a 1967 Cadillac Eldora convertible
Hot pink, with whale skin hubcaps
And all leather cow interior
And make brown baby seal lions for head lights (yeah)
And I’m gonna drive in that baby at 115 miles per hour
Gettin' 1 mile per gallon,
Sucking down Quarter Pounder cheeseburgers from McDonald’s
In the old fashioned non-biodegradable styrofoam containers
And when I’m done sucking down those greeseball burgers
I’m gonna wipe my mouth with the American flag
And then I’m gonna toss the styrofoam containers right out the side
And there ain’t a goddamn thing anybody can do about it
You know why, because we’ve got the bombs, that’s why
2 words, nuclear fuckin’ weapons, OK?
Russia, Germany, Romania, they can have all the democracy they want
They can have a big democracy cakewalk
Right through the middle of Tianimman Square and it won’t make a lick of difference
Because we’ve got the bombs, OK?
Judge Wings’ not dead, he’s frozen, and as soon as we find a cure for cancer
We’re gonna thaw out the duke and he’s gonna be pretty pissed off
You know why,
Have you ever taken a cold shower, well multiply that by 50 million times
That’s how pissed off the duke’s gonna be

I’m an asshole (he’s an asshole)
I’m an asshole (he’s the world’s biggest asshole)


I’m an asshole and I’m proud of it
I'll accept your apology if you burn one of your little marks into neutrino albatrosses head. It makes him...squirm....muhahahah!
Asshole is definetly one for me.

But also:

Welcome To The Jungle - Guns 'N Roses
Thunderstruck - AC/DC
I Wanna Rock - Twisted Sister

I looooooooooooove this kind of rock. So cool and energetic. I'm sure if I was around at this time I would have thought it was dumb, but it's just cool.
