I don’t know if it’s my Pihole or what, but I couldn’t get this video to load on the page. If anyone else has that problem, I found it here by pulling it out of the source code:

For the BB Admins, the code I was seeing was in a FIGURE tag with a class “wp-block-embed” if that helps?

I think the only album I would have a chance with is the rocky horror cast recording… can I please stop working and record that right now?

what is everyone’s most memorized album?

Hmmm…that is a good question. Probably something by Japan or Robyn Hitchcock. I am going to go with the album I Often Dream of Trains, by Robyn Hitchcock.

My problem is that it has probably been 8 years since I have repeatedly listened to an entire album

Do we get to have a set list to work from? I think I’d be close with Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, but I’m sure I’d forget a song somewhere along the way without the titles to work from. :stuck_out_tongue:

same here, won’t load in chrome or edge

I bet I could do it with the first Ramones LP, but those songs are really basic and short.

The problem is that when I’ve listened to an album so much that I know it inside-and-out, I get burned out and then stop listening to it completely, so I haven’t actually listened to that album in years. There are probably several albums where I once knew every line (Public Enemy, Velvet Underground) but because I got burned out I’ve now mostly forgotten them.

Oh, for me that’s easy: Kate Bush Never for Ever.

Nobody wants to hear me sing that. Nobody.

For me it would be (from experience)
“rocky horror cast recording” 100%. For some reason that is the only music I can sing almost in tune.

I bet the ones you’re burned out on are still in there somewhere. Just need an opening line to get you going

Transformer by Reed probably?

To be fair, there’s a really really short list of people who can pull off Kate Bush Karaoke.

Back in my garage band days, I had a weird useless gift: I was the guy in the band who knew all the lyrics to all the songs. And I had the worst singing voice in the band, by far. Less than single-octave range, less-than-confident pitching, and trouble hearing myself.
