TVD's Daily Wax | Meat Loaf "Bat Out of Hell"

Well, sure - I grew up on the Jersey Shore...but I was nothing close to a Springsteen fan. It took me until my thirties to actually get The Boss, and much of that is purely nostalgia. (I'm on board now, but still...) This Meat Loaf record...with all of its bluster and blather filled the gap just fine, thank you. Motorcycles belching out from the grave, tenuous moments in the back seats of cars, hot summer nights on the beach...this was the soundtrack to that road map. Smell the ocean? I do.

Meat Loaf - Bat Out of Hell LP (Mp3)
This is the whole LP...reordered for maximum effect. And the last of the guilty pleasures for now. (Until I can find my Culture Club's here SOMEplace....)

TVD Shuffle Bored | March 28, 2008

OK, that's it. I'm pitching the Nano. Too many recurring themes among the randomness...but here you have it:
ABC - Date Stamp (Mp3)
The Jimi Hendrix Experience - Have You Ever Been (To Electric Ladyland) (Mp3)
Thin Lizzy - The Sun Goes Down (Mp3)
Danny Wilson - Aberdeen (Mp3)
The Turtles - Elenore (Mp3)
