    I'll make it easy for you to remember:

    One is a legend, and the other has made a couple of good songs like Rocket Man.

    They're both smarmy bastards, but Elton writes better melodies.

    Yeah, he did Tarzan and Brother Bear. Tarzan actually has a few good songs on it too, as well as being the last traditionally animated Disney feature that i really, really like, mostly due to absolutely stunning animation by Glen Keane. I love the character design for Jane as well.

    I love the Tarzan soundtrack. Actually, I love most Disney soundtracks. One of the many reasons I am excited for Toy Story 3 is new Randy Newman songs. No joke.

    It's Little Boots and La Roux for me. I don't really get them confused anymore though because La Roux's song is fucking huge now.

    That album is probably overhyped. I think it's good but nothing mind-blowing. I usually just go back to "Ready for the Floor" all the time.

    This thread is actually like the "Convince me in three songs" thread except less organized.

    "Ready For The Floor" turned me away from listening to that album for the longest time because I find it insanely annoying. When i finally decided to give the album a chance I found a bunch of songs I ended up really liking on it. I do find myself wondering why people love them SO much though.

    But seriously. People can say what they want about FNM. I have grown tired of defending them. Lots of people here who didn't care about FNM saw them at Coachella this year and were impressed by them.

    im almost certain you can learn to like anything. for example, if you are staying in a non english speaking country and the only music the people you are staying with have are old cassette tapes of madonna, janet jackson, and others you thought you were not into or dont get, you would still look forward to it coming home after a long day. youd be having a smoke and be thinking borderline was one of the greatest songs of all time. its a matter of tweaking time and amount of material. its a unique personal situation for everybody.

    I don't think FNM really is that popular and that hyped up enough to be put into this thread. FNM and general Mike Patton fans are pretty vocal about why we like them so much.

    its ridiculous how big pavement got. they were always intended for a small niche of people. then crazy things started happening with the village voice poll, videos on mtv, lolapallooza, and everything else. i would look around during their set at coachella and see so many people with disappointed looks on their faces. it seemed like very few people were enjoying pavement. enough to fit a small or large club.

    So now that we've debated The Smiths a bit, what about Sonic Youth?

    Anyone else curious as to what all the fuss is about? I only have Daydream and Sister, but while I appreciate both, I wouldn't list either as one of my favorite albums of the late 80's/early 90's like so many publications do.

    I'd like to be convinced otherwise by some fans.

    And I thought Pavement was every bit as fantastic live as they are in the studio.

    Mountmccabe is a pretty big Sonic Youth fan, if memory serves.

    For me their music has always fallen under the "I enjoy it when it's on, but never actually put it on myself" category

    They've got better every time I've seen them this year. The Coachella one was the worst I've seen (but I still enjoyed it at the time).

    their fox theatre show before coachella is one of my favorite concerts ever. coachella was good to, but it seemed like i was one of the few people to think so.

    I highly enjoyed the set. They looked happy and like they were having fun, they sounded good, and everyone around me was rocking out and singing along.

    I saw Pavement at Sasquatch and couldn't really tell you if they were good or bad. Sounded just like their records to me... meh. Anyone else care to weigh in on that particular set?

    I already did. Unsatisfying. But I am not a fan. Let's just say their set turned me away from them forever.

    I've tried to listen to this a couple times and it's never really grabbed me. I guess it's just not my kind of thing.
