The music of bookofjoe


When I get ready to work here, I generally click on iTunes, then forward until I come to a song I really like (my jukebox has about 700 songs, all rock).

Then I choose "Repeat One," and listen to it play over and over while I work.

I'm talking 20, 30, 40 times or more.

Volume, by the way, is set to "Max."

Here are some of my very favorites (please get your barf bag ready):


"Zombie" - The Cranberries

"Whenever You're On My Mind" - Marshall Crenshaw

"When I Come Around" - Green Day

"Liar Liar" - The Castaways

"Wordup" - Cameo

"Hair" - The Cowsills

"Little Red Corvette" - Prince

"Johnny Be Good" - Chuck Berry

"96 Tears" - ? & the Mysterians

"Tell Me Lies" - Fleetwood Mac

"Itchycoo Park" - Small Faces

"In The Year 2525" - Zager & Evans

"Hold On" - Wilson Phillips

"Green Tambourine" - Lemon Pipers

"Mmmbop" - Hanson

"Mr. Roboto" - Styx

"I Got You Babe" - Sonny & Cher

"I Want You To Want Me" - Cheap Trick


No wonder I'm brain-dead.

For a truly nauseating experience try Barry Manilow's "Could It Be Magic?" for a solid hour. Guaranteed to induce vomiting in the strongest amongst us. Better than ipecac...Actually, anything by Manilow leaves me a bit queasy.

Tonight I've been listening to and enjoying Al Green preceded by Albert Collins. I have a killer play list. Sometimes it's hard to get past the artists and bands who's names start with A. Aaron Neville, Aerosmith, Avril, Al Green, Albert Collins, Aretha, etc.

Yeah, no wonder...No accounting for taste, but you'd probably leave the room if you heard my playlist.
BTW, that Braun coffee mill you recommended so highly is a nice little unit.
