Horrible Hot

Today I am mostly hearing:
smiley - musicalnote'HMS Pinafore' – Gilbert & Sullivan
smiley - musicalnote'Horrible Histories' [OST]
smiley - musicalnote'Hot Rocks: 1964-1971' – The Rolling Stones

HMS Pinafore is the most-annoying Gilbert & Sullivan operetta to write about on h2g2. The Edited Guide rules are that for ship names the prefix is in normal text (ie HMS, USS or, in the case of a pirate ship, RRR) while the ship name is in italics, yet as 'HMS Pinafore' is the name of the operetta it all has to be in italics, which looks wrong.

And that's the end of H

Some good guesses there, Icy – but I'm disallowing two.

smiley - blueJames Bond Themes <- These came under the title 'Best of Bond, James Bond, The '
smiley - okJeff Wayne's Musical Version of the War of the Worlds – Okay, I had filed it under 'War of the Worlds, The' but 'Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of' is clearly on the front cover. In smaller letters, but definitely there.
smiley - blueJimi Hendrix at the Isle of Wight <- Yes, but under the title 'Blue Wild Angel: Jimi Hendrix Live at the Isle of Wight', so no points 'cos I've already mentioned it.
smiley - blueJohn Wesley Harding -Bob Dylan
smiley - okJoseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat <- My daughter performed this last year.

Blue Wild Angel! I never knew that smiley - smiley

Fun fact. David Gilmour of Pink Floyd happened to be in the crowd, and he got roped into doing the sound mixing for this concert.

Wow indeed smiley - wow

Labyrinth wasn't a guess, as I had seen you mention it in conversations a few months ago and made a note, but I nearly missed posting it here as I didn't realise it was the very first album for today! smiley - applausesmiley - winkeye Classic album indeed smiley - ok

I have Gangnam Style in my Just Dance computer game - it is well choreographed (unlike The Timewarp which doesn't match the moves I remember from my youth smiley - disco) but not one of my favourite tunes - I prefer Blondie's Heart of Glass and Queen's Another One Bites the Dust smiley - ok

More L Guesses:

Live in New York City - John Lennon
Live Peace in Toronto 1969 - Plastic Ono Band
