The theme for this weekend's editor's picks is just a general theme of music.
One of my favorite zombie movies is Shaun of the Dead. There's a great scene in that movie where Shaun and Ed try to destroy the zombies by throwing records at them.
Which begs the questions: If your life was at stake, what records (or CDs) from your collection would you throw at zombies to save yourself?
Metallica - ReLoad (CD) - obligatory
Huey Lewis and the News - Sports (vinyl) i think everyone my age once owned this album and then later denounced it
Hootie and the Blowfish, Cracked Rear View (CD) - I have no idea how this got in my house, really.
Loverboy - Get Lucky (vinyl) you would think even the zombies would run from this one
Yes - Yessongs - What was deep and genius while under the influence of acid and the 1970's in general is long, boring and pretentious now. Plus, it's a double album. Two zombies for the price of one.
Any VanHagar CD. Yes they are in my house. They belong to my son. He doesn't like them, he's just a bit OCD and needs to have complete collections. But I'm sure when i came down to 5150 or him, he'd choose killing the undead.
Meatloaf - Bat out of Hell - It's about time this one got lost.
Any "12 inch extended dance remix" of any new wave song I own on vinyl.
