Favorite Album Search Terms

Whenever I'm in the mood for one of my favorite albums - yes, in spite of iTunes shuffle, I still sometimes listen to albums - I open up my iTunes library and type in a catchy little search phrase that will reduce the playlist to the songs on that album. The trick is to come up with a phrase that will include every song from the album and omit any songs from other albums that my sneak on becuase of similar themes/images/terms. Below are some of my favorites:

jew lite - "Starlite Walker" The silver jews

blood on the bob - "Blood on the Tracks" zimmy

enchanted men - "Slanted & Enchanted" pavement

forgot to impress - "The Young Mod's Forgotten Story" The Impressions

spring bra - "Nebraska" The Boss

mount the goat tree - "The Sunset Tree" Mountain Goats

genius words - "Liquid Swords" Genius/GZA

Whale call - "Woke on a Whaleheart" Bill Callahan

eat pepper - Sgt. Pepper's

plugged i n - Miles Davis, "Live at the Plugged Nickel, 1965"
