RE: compilation | from AveryMar 02 2005 - 14:50

Look; this isn't hard. All you need is a pattern or commonality. Make the CD a journey. As you'll note, I'm into the deeper, lighter songs where the melodic aspects are just as vital as the words. These are the songs I love most with 2 scotches (on ice) laying on the sofa, dog by my feet, surronded by 4 B&W towers. If you burn with Nero or another good product; the songs can be edited to blend right into eachother. "Under" provides a summary of some of the very songs I recommended. Can't go wrong. Have the scotch with the quad going; you'll figure it out.

"to be the one" has to be on there IMO.

Thanks for coming back like that Cagain, appreciate it. And your right, and that's probably why I asked the question in the first place -- it is just so hard to whittle down all of Idaho to just 10 songs.

Nice selection, Avery. Ending with Under sounds good. I think my final ten will be based simply on how I'm feeling at the time, and which CDs I see first.

RE: compilation | from cagain againMar 01 2005 - 05:52

Sorry Julian. You're right. Didn't mean to be a prick. Only ten songs is tough, but here ya go:

Skyscrape, Save, Sweep, Pomegranate Bleeding, A Sound Awake, Get You back, ... fuck, I can't do this.

I think very few people like only one or two Idaho records. If one loves Idaho, one loves ALL Idaho records. Therefore instead of making a comp., play someone "3 Sheets" or "Alas" (my personal favorite). If they like those records, tell them to buy ALL the Idaho albums. They won't be disappointed.

Astrida, A Second Chance, Alive Again, Before You Go, Down in Waves, For Granted, Levitate, On The Shore, Nothing Wrong, Orange, Scrawny, Spiral, Stare at the Sky, This Cloud We're On, To Be The One, Under.

I love almost all Idaho tunes, but the above are my favorites; and if mixed properly, this collection would be outstanding. Clearly, you want to finish with Under.

Hey Cagain, no need to knock a guy down like that. I'm new to this board so was unaware that its been done a billion times already. It's quite natural for a fan of a band to want to find out what other fans like...

So chill out, and give me your top ten, god damn it!!

RE: compilation | from cagainFeb 28 2005 - 05:15

Hasn't this been done (on this very message board) about a million times already?

Why do people need suggestions for a compilation? Just pick your favorite songs and throw 'em on there, for chrissakes.

good luck dude !

RE: compilation | from Cheese EaterFeb 26 2005 - 02:22

There are a few suggestions here...

Idaho compilation | from JulianFeb 26 2005 - 00:04

A bunch of friends and I (20 of us or so, varied musical tastes)have agreed to do a 10 song compilation for each other of our favourite artist/band.

Of course, I selected to do Idaho -- someone else is doing AMC, though I probably would still have done Idaho anyway.

So, please, any suggestions for a killer 10 song Idaho selection? (with the aim of converting an eclectic, mixed bag of good, intelligent people)

What I definately want to include:

Jump up - Alas (great opener), Apricots to Armagnac, Levitate and Get you back.

Any thoughts guys?
