Ashley’s top 5 of the 2000s…6 months later.

14 Sep

Time has passed, friends, and I don’t know how many of you are still out there, but I realize I abandoned you with unfinished business.  That wasn’t very nice of me, now was it?

In honor of the most recent album release by someone involved in what I believe is the greatest album of the 2000’s, nay, the greatest band of the 2000’s, and because the end of the year is fast approaching and I want somewhere to post my favorite albums of the year in ;), here it is:

ASHLEY’S TOP 5 OF THE 2000’S:

*grumble* I know you’re in here somewhere *grumble*

AHA!  You’re an excel file….

Anyways, onwards

5.) Girl Talk – Feed the Animals (2008)

Perhaps some would find this an unfair inclusion as there isn’t a whole lot of original music on here, and to those I say :raspberry:.  I thought, after the first highly enjoyable listen to this album, I would no longer find it all that worthwhile, that the shtick would get old fast.  Nearly two years later, and I still use this album to either celebrate any happy occasion in my life, or to cheer me up when I’m feeling low.  It has edged into almost every moment in my life.  No longer can I listen to “Jessie’s Girl” on the radio without busting in on the chorus with a little announcement about how much rather the lead singer would prefer “getting head”.  I can’t listen to Journey’s “Faithfully” the same way, I can’t even listen to all of Aphex Twin’s “Girl/Boy Song” without having some kind of inner inclusion of the music that would follow it on Feed the Animals. And this isn’t a complaint, I love the hell out of every one of those moments.
