If you don’t like lists, look away now

A few stragglers (with valid excuses) remain, but we’ve ended up with proposals for books about albums by the following people. The Flaming Lips win with four proposals, narrowly trumping Willie Nelson, U2, Steely Dan, GNR, and Van Morrison, who each have three.

A huge thank you to everybody who submitted a pitch. We’ll do our very best to pick the best ones, and to let everybody know by the end of January.

You’ll be glad to know that only one of the proposals contains the word “fisting”.

24 Thoughts to “If you don’t like lists, look away now”

  1. do ‘the biz’ by the sea and cake

  2. Well, I know one of those Flaming Lips proposals is not for Yoshimi anyway…

  3. Still very few women….very interesting.

  4. J.

    Still very few metal albums. Interesting.

  5. i briefly considered pitching a book on voxtrot, figuring it would be a shoe-in.

  6. I’m surprised R. Hell and the Voidoids’ BLANK GENERATION is missing. I wonder if Richard would write it. He likes to think about himself.

  7. A list like that can sure elicit some gasps from the crowd, especially those of us who have made our own proposal.Thoughts:Wouldn’t it be really cool if the Decemberists book were written by Paul Westerberg? Yeah, it would be cool.I agree with the anonymous fellow who questioned Arcade Fire’s inclusion. I considered proposing a Belle & Sebastian, but even that band I think are too new to encourage some real critique.More questionable than Arcade Fire: Limp Bizkit.Why no Son Volt? Both Uncle Tupelo and Wilco get a shout out, but not Son Volt?I hope those Flaming Lips proposals are for anything other than “Yoshimi”. … I’m giddy with excitement.

  8. I meant to add that there is a site now dedicated to the album… I think it will eventually offer outtakes of the Pony Express sessions, etc. http://www.ponyexpressrecord.com

  9. Though it may not have the commercial audience, I think an amazing 33.3 edition would be on Shudder To Think’s “Pony Express Record.” I have never gotten sick of this album, and it sounds as new today as it did in ’94. It completely changed how I listen to band dynamics and think about songwriting.

  10. having one on the talking heads seems NECESSARY! c’mon! good luck in your decisions!

  11. I’m still thinking these probably will be the last books in the series – but since I’ve got just about everything else wrong so far in terms of what will sell and what won’t, who knows?

  12. wow, this is a crazy long list! i would love to be a fly on the wall for the selection process. you must have some serious aesthetics/audience/series cohesion mathematics to perform to get the answers here. good luck.

  13. Any further indication whether these 15-20 will be the last ones in the series?

  14. I tried hard to avoid too much duplication in the pitching process, but it seems inevitable when there are so many people involved. Having two, three, or four pitches about the same artist doesn’t make it any more likely that we’ll end up choosing one of those. Current thinking is that we’ll end up choosing 15-20 proposals out of these. Sorry for the stress, everybody.

  15. on top of waiting like six weeks or so for the decision, there is a little “(2)” beside my band. … great … extra anxiety …

  16. David I pitched one of the Willie Nelson’s. How many of those pitches are for Red Headed Stranger?Thanksase

  17. The fisting reference… that’s in the Billy Joel proposal, right?

  18. I was actually considering asking somebody to write a book about an album that isn’t even finished recording yet – so we could publish our book on the same day that the album is released. Having said that, I do take your point.

  19. Going over this list, I’m amazed that bands like Arcade Fire and Libertines are being pitched. Not that I don’t like them, but classic albums need time and historical perspective to be considered classic. Too damn new, y’heard?

  20. One list leads to another, I guess.

  21. There is a time for everything,a season for every activityunder heaven. A time to beborn and a time to die. Atime to plant and a time toharvest. A time to kill anda time to heal. A time totear down and a time torebuild. A time to cry anda time to laugh. A time togrieve and a time to dance.A time to scatter stonesand a time to gather stones.A time to embrace and atime to turn away. A time tosearch and a time to lose.A time to keep and a time tothrow away. A time to tearand a time to mend. A timeto be quiet and a time tospeak up. A time to loveand a time to hate. A timefor war and a time for peace.May this Christmasbe your time to laugh,embrace & forpersonal peace,Dr. HowdyP.S.

  22. So, David, was the “fisting” reference in the pitch for Yes, Jean Michel Jarre or Al Stewart?

  23. As one of the submitters it’s hard not to just nervously hope that mine sneaks through to publication, but I do think that for record geeks a Vegas pool on this would be FASCINATING, especially since I’m not sure how you go about laying out the odds here (is a title that multiple people suggested a “surer” bet? what about one by an artist that already has titles in the series- is that less likely?). Really quite an intriguing phenomenon.
