Hi! My name is Kelsey. I’ve never had a penpal before. I’m looking for a
friend (18+ please) to send letters back and forth, snail mail style.
Receiving a personal letter in the mail is one of my favorite things in
the world !I have one cat, work full time at a casino, and live in the
Pacific Northwest. Writing, reading, paper crafts, and talking fandom
are a few of my hobbies. Speaking of fandom- I am really into
Supernatural, Sherlock, Star Trek, and the MCU. Music is my no.1 way to
relax at the end of the day. I listen to a little bit of everything, but
my favorites are pop and classic rock. My favorite books are the Harry
L.A. Woman by The Doors - If I had a license and a car this would probably be the only thing i would listen to on the road, especially at night. If you’ve never listened to The Doors before I would say this is a pretty safe starting point. The whole vibe is very suave with a good mixture of just plain dirt. Plus Jim Morrison’s lyrics read more like poetry, which kills me. Favorite tracks include L’America, Hyacinth House, The WASP (Texas Radio and The Big Beat), and of course Riders On The Storm is a classick.
Mechanical Bull by Kings of Leon - So fun fact i HATED kings of leon for the majority of my life until like last year. Idk what it is about this specific album but i find myself coming back to it a lot. I think it has a good variety of song types and its good to just put on and chill out to. Favorite tracks include Supersoaker, Rock City, Temple, Family Tree, and On The Chin.
Patsy Cilne’s Greatest Hits by Patsy Cline - Lmao Patsy is God. Her stuff just puts me in a good head space, and this is another good road trip album. Its also good for pretending like ur in a movie :))) Favorite tracks include Sweet Dreams (Of You), I Fall To Pieces, Strange, and She’s Got You.
MTV Unplugged in New York by Nirvana - Listen, I know. I know i’m a poser grunge wannabe. You dont have to tell me bc i KNOW. but listen…this unplugged session is famous for DAMN GOOD REASON. If you can, I recommend watching the session but listening to the album is fine too. Hearing the dynamics between the band and Kurt interacting with the audience is priceless. Plus his vocals are raw to the extreme and if you’re a fan of rough/ blowtorch sounding vocals then this is right up your ally. Not gonna lie i get a little teary eyed towards the end :((. Favorite tracks include The Man Who Sold The World (david bowie cover), Polly, On A Plain, Plateau (meat puppets cover), All Apologies, and Where Did You Sleep Last Night.
Literally everyone i know on here has been tagged so im gonna cop out and say i tag anyone who wants to do this :)))))))
*curtsies* classick rock virgin here, thank you for the playlist and I would love a real starter kit. Thank you so much
*Curtsies* Marvelous! So here are the artists/albums I would start with: the Beatles, Revolver, Abbey Road, and Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (Rubber Soul is my personal fave, though); the Velvet Underground and Nico, The Velvet Underground & Nico (not necessarily a great album imo but an important one and also I hate Andy Warhol, so sort of biased against it); the Doors, The Doors and Morrison Hotel; the Jimi Hendrix Experience, Are You Experienced;Queen, A Night at the Opera; David Bowie, Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (though my favorite Bowie is Man Who Sold the World); Janis Joplin, Pearl; Led Zeppelin, Led Zeppelin II, Led Zeppelin IV, and Physical Graffiti (which might be my single favorite album of all time and for some reason always gets overlooked always); the Who, Who’s Next and Tommy (though I gotta be honest I think the Who are overrated); the Rolling Stones, Let it Bleed and Exile on Main Street; Deep Purple, Machine Head; Pink Floyd, Dark Side of the Moon, Wish You Were Here,and The Wall (but definitely start with Dark Side because The Wall can be overwhelming if you’re not ready for some really weird shit); Aerosmith, Toys in the Attic; the Eagles, Hotel California; AC/DC, Highway to Hell and Back in Black.
Honestly I could go on but I’ll stop here. My biggest piece of advice is DON’T LISTEN TO THESE ALBUMS ON SHUFFLE and do the rock operas/concept albums in one sitting if you can (the first time, at least). Before the age of internet music sonic progression and storytelling were a lot more important in individual albums and if you try to listen to The Wall or Tommy or even Led Zeppelin III out of order it will be jarring and weird in a bad way and you won’t get the full experience.
