What, no Anal Cunt?

This is why great records can't be decided by democracy: because most people have shitty taste. Most people believe that they have good taste, but then they do things like vote for Coldplay or Genesis in their top ten albums ever.
And while there's an argument to be made for the subjectivity of lists, and maybe one of those people first had sex to the melifluous sounds of Phil Collins chirping susudio while they humped away, but picking any Genesis album is wrong. Even if it was a Peter Gabriel one and all stupid proggy.

So here's the title track off of what should be in, well, at least the top 20, but I didn't see it nominated even once: Alice Coltrane's Ptah the El Daud.

It's got a fantastic bass groove behind some of the most sweeping and beautiful '70s jazz around. Music to march to.

Hahahaha! Oh man. I need to pour bleach on my brain to rid myself of thoughts of trying to have sex to Susudio!!

I was gettin' ready to have sex for, like, the second time with this girl from Spain that I was dating, and I just slapped the closest cassette into the boombox (from an unlabelled pile I had gotten from my parents' basement). On comes Scarsbury Fair by Simon and Garfunkel, and she starts yelling "NO! NO! NO old man music! You listen to OLD MAN MUSIC!" and laughing at me.
I deserved it.
