So, I recently installed ITunes on my computer, and I've been uploading cds like crazy. Already got 3000 songs and I'm still going. I am totally obsessed with this program now, uploading songs and finding the album artwork. Also, it's got me listening to CDs I haven't listened to in years, like alot of my old punk CDs, and some other stuff.
Some great old favorites that I have "rediscovered" because of ITunes:
GWAR - Their first five albums are some of the funniest and yet rockingest metal albums ever made. Listening to them years later, I even notice things I didn't when I was a kid, like all the times they make fun of Guns N' Roses in their songs.
and, on a completely opposite note...
Snoop Doggy Dogg's first album, Doggystyle - God freaking damn did that guy have alot of talent. What the hell happened to him? One day he was rapping with a vengeance on The Chronic and Doggystyle, the next he was a tired old act who just throws around some catch phrases and lets other people do the rapping for him. It was completely sudden too - one day he was great, then he totally sucked. Maybe I just have a soft spot for the danger and over-the-topness of early nineties gangsta rap.
So check out your CD collections and listen to something you haven't heard in a while, and post about it!
