Boy why was everyone is such a bad mood yesterday in this thread? Let's spark this place up .....
Have Another Hit Of Colorado Sunshine
B-B-B-Benny and the Jets...
This thread is actually like the "Convince me in three songs" thread except less organized.
Ron Paul 2012!
Death Cab for Cutie/Magik Magik Orchestra
some other bands
"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.
Who are these Pavement dudes people won't shut up about?
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.
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.
I thought that set was fantastic, too. One of my favorites from the weekend.
cool thread, TG. i'll have to read through this some late night soon.
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'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.
