About Joe Armstrong

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. My earliest cogent memory of any kind is my father playing Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon. The heartbeats, clocks, coins, and voices are things a toddler can easily relate to; they're in their world. And David Gilmour's solos set the bar high. What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? Blue Rodeo, Five Days In July Hem, Rabbit Songs Tom Waits, Rain Dogs Five Days in July is a perfect album of perfect songs, Hem's Rabbit Songs may be the most beautiful thing I've ever heard, and Rain Dogs is the soundtrack to a movie in which I want to live. I could easily list a hundred more favorite albums. Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Down to Desperation” Songs are like children. Some do their homework without asking and others won't grow up without a fight. I wrestled with "Down to Desperation" for years and I couldn't be more proud of how it turned out. People sing it back to me all the time!
