Falling on my ears

Q's FotoPage did something really nifty at the end of July and I am picking up the gauntlet and passing it on to you. Take the top 5 albums you're listening to and describe them. Here we go:

1) Radney Foster's Del Rio, TX 1959. Country in it's purest form. This album has the ultimate 'let's stay together' song with Nobody Wins. With the exception of Nobody Wins and Hammer and Nails, the songs are all about losing at love and nobody does a better cryin' in your beer song than Radney.

2) Radney Foster's See What You Want To See. Country refined. This album has the best 'fuck you there's no way we can fix this' song with I've got a Picture. After a bitter divorce and a new found love he's back with a little less twang and lot more raw emotion. Bonus: He wrote Raining on Sunday and his version beats the hell out of Keith Urban's.

3) Meatloaf's Bat Out Of Hell. All the high school angst you can handle without all the messy blood, sweat and tears that you went through when you lived it way back when.

4) Cowboy Junkies Lay It Down. They really came into their own with this album. Margo's vocals finally caught up with Michael's lyrics. Every song is a hauntingly depressing masterpiece. If you spin this disc while you are commiting suicide you'll die happy, but chances are if you spin this disc while you are commiting suicide, you'll put down the knife/pills/gun and just hit repeat until the feeling passes.

5) Eagles Their Greatest Hits. Awesome. Already Gone, Take it to the Limit, and Desperado all evoke the good days of high school when life was all tequila sunrises and mild hallucinogenics. College and a job and responsibility just seemed so very, very far ahead of me.

So what are YOU listening to?
