MUSIC: My Favorite Song of the Day (That I Haven't Mentioned Already) - Feb 9, 2007 - "Love You More" by Buzzcocks

This is from me, not some reprinted article. - OlderMusicGeek

I have to admit that until recently that I'd never heard that much of Buzzcocks' stuff.

I mean I always liked what I heard. I just, for some reason, never got around to listening to more of their stuff. I don't why since I really liked the stuff I had heard.

But finally, I downloaded their singles collection, Singles Going Steady. - I know, I love the title too! -

And I loved everything I've heard so far. - And no, I haven't listened to the whole cd. Sorry, people, but I love shuffle, and I love hearing a whole variety of music. That's why I got a 30 gig mp3 player. And will get a 80 gig one of these days! -

So this song actually isn't one of their great tunes. Which, of course, brings up why is it on My Favorite Song of the Day. What can I say? I had a busy day and didn't listen to much music this Saturday, so this was the best song I heard.

I mean it's a good song and a fun song. It's got all of the Buzzcocks' great sound going for it. That speed driven punk guitar work, the usual hard slapping punk bass, and the pound-pound throw-in-a-few-cymbals punk drumming. Along with Peter Shelley's fun lyrics and singing. And some nice melodies and harmonies going for it too.

The ending is kind of annoying, because it sounds like your cd player died.

But like, I said, the main problem with this song is that Buzzcocks have better tunes. This song only gives you a taste of what Buzzcocks are capable of. So if you like this song, I strongly recommend that you try some of their other stuff.

My Internet Radio Stations

This is a fairly good sampling of some of the music I listen to. It's missing a few genres I like - such as cajun. I'll work on that later. But it does contain most of my favorite artists. I tried to steer away from the better known songs to give you a better idea of what kind of music the artists play, but I was limited by the songs the website - Project Playlist - had available. But if you want to get an idea of what I listen to, just hit the play or arrow button. - OlderMusicGeek

The internet station that does the best of playing my music is Last.fm. Here's my station if you're interested.

This website, OlderMusicGeek Radio on Pandora.com, does a fairly decent job of playing what I like, although they do occasionally play stuff I don't care for, but overall they're pretty good.
