Am I on the right blog? Is this Urf!? Are these in order? I don't think they are. What about The Delivery Man? I'd probably put that in place of Punch The Clock, though that is a fine album. I don't even own Get Happy!!

These are not in order - hence the *'s (Blogger doesn't do bullets).
Why am I not familiar with The Delivery Man? Punch the Clock has "Everday I Write the Book" on it!!! How could you not own Get Happy?!

Hamlett, which one is that? Is it Live at El Mocambo? If not then I need whatever it is, too.

hamlett said...

Elizabeth Alley said...

RJA said...

The lyrics of Less Than Zero on that recording are completely different from the one on My Aim Is True.

RJA said...

ok i get it - i have a lot more listening to do, which i will do happily. but the only thing that would knock out any of my top 6 is maybe 'King of America'.
