    Well,, since it's winter, and you did mention Mr. Zappa, I'd have to go with his sage advice...

    It must be strange still having (and I presume playing) the same vinyl for all those years. I'm an academic and I have books I first read 50 years ago and looking back at them again brings back lots of memories, but my old music is long gone, nothing left but the old guitar itself. Did you know that vinyl was going to come back again some day, or was that as big a surprise to you as it was to me?

    Yikes. My list would probably be 50% jazz players, about 20% of them guitar players. Then 30% "classical" (mostly piano) and 20% rock/pop/blues (mostly blues). So....

    1) Thelonious Monk
    2) Eric Dolphy
    3) Alexander Scriabin (solo piano works)
    4) Lightnin' Hopkins

    etc.

    (Or you could just say "Django Reinhardt" and leave it at that, on the theory that nobody really belongs on the same list with him.)

    Was a complete surprise. I held on to them mostly for sentimental value. I do the same with some books..sets of Twain & Poe, full set of the Harvard classics.. At one point I think I had the complete curricula of a 1970's liberal arts education in paperback...Brautigan, Vonnegut, et al.

    It's definitely far and wide away from most other replies in this thread in terms of age but for something to still sound as mistifying as it did when it came out 22 years ago is quite an achievement in my books.

    Godspeed You! Black Emperor's "first" album F♯ A♯ ∞, because the band name isn't on the video's title.

    I used to have "Rockets Fall..." by Godspeed You! Black Emperor as my alarm clock tune for over a decade :D

    But they wish they did ;)

    If you're talking about lyrics, I've recently realized that in lyrics some of the oddly specific things that paint a totally foreign picture can still be relatable, as long as the idea/feeling behind the metaphor is relatable/universal.
