Glee Season Three
Last Friday Night
So the Glee sitcom has spun off over a dozen CD releases but if you want to hear some great songs done most-times better than the originals, this string of sugar pop tunes will wet your whistle.
Best Cut: Waiting for a Girl Like You
Location: Doing your laundry
Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part GarbaAge
For those of us who bemoaned the September end of one of the top bands of the alt-rock era, have no fear for this 40-song (thatâ€™s right, 40) ultimate greatest hits release, including cuts finished after their last studio album, puts Stipe and company directly in our hands to turn over and over again like a rare gem.
Best Cut: We All Go Back to Where We Belong
Location: Ear bulbs, 16-hour flight to London
M.A.S.: Musica + Alma + Sexo CD
Rickyâ€™s last album release was back in 2005 before he came out of the closet. Now a free man, Martin seems still to be straddling two worlds in this â€˜almost all latinâ€™ collection with only two songs in English. He still looks great in those pants, btw.
Best Cut: Frio
Location: Casa Cupula, Puerto Vallarta cocktails
Beethoven: The Symphonies
Hereâ€™s the scene: The Gewandhaus Orchestra of Leipzig and Chailly, perhaps its best conductor ever and a purist of Beethovenâ€™s original tempos. Put them together and the result is pure orgasmic delight.
Best Cut: Symphony No. 3
Location: Sprawled on floor, headphones, no interruptions
