The Head On The Door Makes It Into 1,000 Recordings To Hear Before You Die.

Published in August by Workman, 1,000 Recordings To Hear Before You Die (A Listener's Life List), is said to be the "musical adventure of a lifetime."

Written by music journalist Tom Moon, the alphabetically arranged book covers the masterpieces and the "unfairly overlooked." Moon listed the entries alphabetically, "to create the kind of unexpected juxtapositions that break down genre bias and broaden listeners' horizon."

Said to be the "most exciting book on music in years. A book of treasure, a book of discovery, a book to open your ears to new worlds of pleasure. Doing for music what Patricia Schultz-author of the phenomenal 1,000 Places to See Before You Die-does for travel, Tom Moon recommends 1,000 recordings guaranteed to give listeners the joy, the mystery, the revelation, the sheer fun of great music."

Other Waist High favorites to make the book include Bauhaus' In the Flat Field (1980), Kraftwerk's Trans-Europe Express (1977), X's Wild Gift (1981), Sex Pistols' Never Mind The Bollocks (1977), Talking Heads' Remain In Light (1980), Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures (1979), The Jesus and Mary Chain's Psychocandy (1985), The Police's Synchronicity (1983), The Clash's London Calling (1979), and the Waist High junior high school defining Back in Black by AC/DC (1980).

1985's The Head on the Door was the sixth studio album by The Cure. All songs were written by Robert Smith and are all Waist High favorites: "In Between Days," "Kyoto Song," "The Blood," "Six Different Ways," "Push," "The Baby Screams," "Close to Me," "A Night Like This," "Screw," and "Sinking."

"Six Different Ways," and "Screw" have not been played since the 1985/86 Head on the Door Tour, at which the Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre show this writer was in attendance.
