My Music Listening Journal 2021: Day 34: Wednesday February 3, 2021.
- DAVID BOWIE: LODGER: 1979: 4 1/2 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: ITUNES: EXPERIMENTAL ROCK: Bowie closes out the 70’s with his 13th album. Lodger is considered the third album in the Berlin Trilogy- although it was recorded in Switzerland. Brian Eno has a hand in writing six of the ten songs here- and also plays on the album. This album is another Bowie album which took me a number of spins to really like but eventually it clicked: Mount Rushmore: “DJ”, “Boys Keep Swinging”, ‘Fantastic Voyage” and “Yassassin.”
- PHIL SPECTOR: BACK TO MONO: 1991: DISC 2 AND 3: IPOD: POP: Phil Spector created some of the greatest music of the early 60’s- his peak years are featured on these two discs- 1963-65. “Be My Baby” and “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin'” two of the greatest singles ever.
- BASEBALL’S GREATEST HITS: 1989: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: IPOD: February made me shiver.. it is cold and going to get even colder next week- so it was time to listen to some baseball songs to bring on thoughts of spring- which Phil says is six weeks away. I made a Top 40 Baseball songs a couple years ago- some of the songs on this collection made it.
