What is the most addictive CD you own?

Mine is = Run, Lola, Run Official Movie Soundtrack.

OMG, I never get tried of this cd. It’s great for driving, dancing, relaxing, working out, anything!!! :smiley: [sub](Hmmm, need to try it as boudoir music sometime…um ladies, any volunteers?)[/sub]

From the Choirgirl Hotel by Tori Amos. I don’t know why but I can keep listening to it over and over again.

Madonna, The Immaculate Collection. From “Borderline” to “Justify My Love”, I just never get sick of Madonna.

If it’s not Madonna, it’s One Love: The Best of Bob Marley & The Wailers. I love listening to this on my long, congested early morning commute to school. It’s keeps my mojo balanced.

MSK, I had a boyfriend who dug that soundtrack for groove music. Never really worked for me but I guess some people dig it.

The most addictive CD I own is always the one I bought most recently. I have a tendency to pop a recent purchase into my car cd player (the only time I listen to CDs) and listen to it for a month on end. Drives my friends nuts. Currently: Parachute by Guster. One month previously: Get Some by the Hackensaw Boys. But I guess the all time winner would be:
Bleed American by Jimmy Eat World. It stayed in my CD player for about 2 months, and I’m still not tired of it, and pop it in from time to time.

Argh! Preview! My long lost friend. Why have I forsaken you? And I made the same mistake twice, to boot.

I have two right now:

  • A compilation of Frank Sinatra’s Greatest Hits
  • Rockapella’s Primer

I listen to them while I make coffee, mess around on the computer, fold laundry, cook, etc. Not tired of them yet!

I have three favourites right now:

Up Evil by Front 242,
There Is A Time by The Dillards, and
Vihma by Värtinä.

Those are the ones that have been in the CD player for the past week.

Wow. This has to be one of the most popular questions in Cafe. Every day there is a new variant of the favorite band/favorite album question.

Hatebreed Satisfaction is the Death of Desire

The Avalanches Since I Left You. An Aussie band, but I hear they gained UK and US releases too.

I could rave about this album for hours (well, a good 15 minutes at least), but I haven’t the words to do it justice. Here’s a review by an ultra-critical music review site: PitchFork Media. And a review from a less snobby site: DotMusic.

Face to Face’s Ignorance is Bliss. Probably some of the most beautiful music I have ever heard, and definitely the band’s best and most underrated album. Every song on it is phenomenal. I’ve actually owned this CD for almost 3 years, but when I first got it I didn’t like it much as it was a serious departure from their earlier work. I recently re-discovered it about 2 months ago and I’ve listened to it almost every day since.

Overall, Red Roses for Me, by the Pogues. Just…perfect. Absolutely perfect. (Almost any other Pogues album can be substituted, but Roses is my favorite)

Shapeshifter, by Marcy Playground, still sounds fresh to me, even though I’ve played it to death over the last year.

I just got Aimee Mann’s Bachelor #2, and I predict that I shall be listening to nothing else for the next few weeks.

Josh Groban’s new album. This kid has a VOICE!

Selected Ambient Works 85-92 by Aphex Twin.

Bloodhound Gang - Hooray for Boobies!

Every track, in sequence or random play, over and over, all day long.

40oz of Freedom bySublime I can listen to that CD over and over and never get tired of it.

Hmmm… there are a lot. Right now, I would have to say anything by Zappa. Probably the most addictive Zappa albums are One Size Fits All and Burnt Weeny Sandwich. Also, recently I’ve been addicted to all the bizarre mixed CDs I’ve been making. They usually include a mix of the Beatles, Zappa, Hendrix, mariachi, Spike Jones, Captain Beefheart, Herbie Hancock, Buffalo Springfield, the Moody Blues, Finnish polka, Gyorgy Ligeti, bizarre sound files I’ve made, and God knows what else.

I have been playing my Crowded House cd’s obsessively since i got them, a couple of months ago. I just finished Crowded House while checking the boards.** Recurring Dream** was played twice yesterday.

U2’s Rattle And Hum was listened to 7-8 times LAST week and before that it was** Mer De Noms** by A Perfect Circle.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch original cast recording

Purpendicular by Deep Purple

Ali Farka Toure is the man. I first bought his self titled album on tape about 15 years ago and now I have the CD. Just converted it to MP3 format.

He is often described as an “African John Lee Hooker” and did a collabrative album with Ry Cooder a few years ago which is also pretty good.

Oh, and of course Engelbert Humperdinck :wink:

Currently it’s Comfort Eagle by Cake. I just can’t seem to get tired of it.
