I've always liked the Tatu song, but that is one of my least favorite ABBA songs. And I love ABBA.

Even if you hate everything else he did--which I was in agreement about until around 2007--you gotta give him credit for The Social Network score. The montage sequences are given a fantastic aesthetic thanks to his work.

RotationSlimWang

(a) I had started dating Ivy and she would occasionally play a song that I didn't find quite as whiny and annoying as most of his catalog, but particularly (b) a friend had an extra ticket to Lights In The Sky at the Forum. Not a great venue but a perfect viewing position, and seeing him play live finally not whipping his long hair around and throwing keyboards at the end of every song sold me on him. The motherfucker had made all the music I heard that night ALONE. Just him. And he'd managed to take this art he'd created single-handedly and turn it into an almost religious devotion from his fans. As an egotist, I couldn't deny the mastery of it.

S&G had their cool pop moments and "Kodachrome" is fun. But 'Paul Simon As Serious Artist' is a short, blighted, deadend street. In particular, Graceland is background music at a particularly boring dinner party.

Graceland has only 5 1/2 good songs on it, and those songs are so fucking good they house just about every other album ever made. Are you really going to sit there with a straight face (except for the sagging, of course) and try and tell me that there is anything not perfect about The Boy In The Bubble or Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes?
