I quite like a few New Order songs, actually, quite a bit even.

True Faith
Regret
Bizarre Love Triangle
Blue Monday

But I consider them a pop band, and pop bands tend to put out their best songs as singles. It thus does not surprise me that I like best their singles. Though definitely not all of them.
Another Curefan for The Dark Christmas album.

Mmmmmm. Madonna eh Rich?
You ever listened to the Live version of American Life from the "I'm Going To Tell You A Secret" dvd/cd?
I was very shocked when I first saw  it. It's actually brilliant.

CLT on headphones as it's only 6.30 am (cat woke me up :evil:)

"Oh Father", by Madonna. Yeah, I know. Madonna.

I heard a fragment of this song (well, and the video) many years (17, 18!?) ago, and actually liked it a lot. However, I never got the name of it. All I could remember was a little melody from it, and that there was snow in the video. And that it was an insanely sad song. Over the years I must have hummed that one line a zillion times over, hoping someone could tell me what it is. Nope.

I stayed in last night, cleaning and goofing around when the thought occurred to me - if there was a video, YouTube has it. And it did. And now the hunt is over. It was a single off of Like A Prayer, but I guess it was pretty obscure. It wasn't even on that Immaculate Hits collection.

The video, as it turns out, was directed by David Fincher (!!!). And is still more than a bit creepy.

Finally. A nearly 18-year mystery solved!!

Alright, I'm done talking about Madonna.




Nothing Wrong with Madonna.  I like quite a few of her songs.  Even caught her in concert many years back ('87 I think).

I've been listening the following bands pretty heavily for the last month or so: Wilco, Gomez, Modest Mouse, The National and Blonde Redhead.

I THINK THE RAMONES CD'S SHOULD BE SOLD AT PHARMACY'S AS A 100% EFFECTIVE ANTIDEPRESSIVE...


MY FAVOURITE SONG:


DANNY SAYS

Danny says we gotta go
Gotta go to Idaho
But we can't go surfin'
'Cause it's 20 below

Sound check's at 5:02
Record stores and interviews
Oh, but I can't wait
To be with you tomorrow

Baby

Oho-ho-ho, we got nowhere to go
And it may sound funny, but it's true
Hangin' out in 100 B
Watching Get Smart on TV
Thinkin' about
You and me and you and me

Hangin' out in L.A.
And there's nowhere to go
It ain't Christmas if there ain't no snow
Listening to Sheena on the radio
Oh-ho oh-ho



THE ALBUM WAS PRODUCED BY PHIL SPECTOR, SO IT'S A BIT DIFFERENT THAT THE EARLY STUFF...
BUT ITS AMAZING!!!
I LOVE THE RAMONES!!!

Fatter than Bob, balder than Porl, as sober as Simon, as amusing as Jason

EXCELLENT and UNDERRATED album, as far as Ramones albums go.

I'm currently listening to the Jesus & Mary Chain "Hate Rock N Roll".

They added a couple of post-Coachella US dates, in NY. Can't wait!

i think it's pretty good.  :smth020


another random note in a hurry, considering MADONNA:
i'd say there's definitely something wrong with madonna these days. i was watching some live show in late night TV the other day (didn't catch when and where that was filmed but it was pretty recent show anyway) and i was just totally disappointed and bored and even annoyed to the point of not bothering to stay tuned very long at all. and i don't say that because i always disliked her, i really think she used to be much better. imho there are simply other people who put up similar kind of shows (if that's what one  chooses to be into) and do it much better - and most of all who are simply far better performers. what really annoys me and made it impossible to watch is a completel lack of class in her performance - and no i'm not asking for some pompous fake glamour or anything like that. if she wants to be an abba-ish disco queen then so be it but one could always do that with style too, why does it have to be so unclassy and cheap-ish? it's like the older she gets the younger she's trying to pretend she is, trying to pass for some thirteen-year old or something soon -- and i'm sorry, i'm just not buying it. let britney do the same and it's much more believable (and thus much more bearable in some ways, as much as i hate to say something like it!!).
and considering this, i really think madonna recent design collaboration with H&M says it all: those two seem suit to each other rather well these days, sadly. :roll:

(why do i always end up ranting in this thread, huh? sorry! ;))
Ay, in the very temple of Delight

Finally I've got manage to sign Dimeadozen and I am downloading some cool stuff. In the last days I have been a lot into Slowdive, which is an awesome band and personally my favourite after The Cure and Pink Floyd. I will share some stuff with you guys later.

I have been also listening Mahler's 5th symphony thanks to a great member of this forum ;)

Slowdive are great... if you like them you'll like My Bloody Valentine, probably my other favourite band along with The Cure  8)

I've been listening to a lot of MBV lately, as well. Mainly "Isn't Anything". Take away "No More Sorry" and you've got a killer record. Better than "Loveless", IMO.

As for Slowdive, I did dig out "Souvlaki" earlier this week. Great album as well. I need to pick up more...

Oh, and plenty of:
