Courtney Love shreds.
I should have said a SPECIFIC Miles Davis record. It’s easy to pick out a Miles Davis record. Naming the song can be a more daunting tastk.
To her credit, unless you are a real jazzhead it’s definitely difficult to immediately pick out a Miles Davis record. That being said, I kiiiind of feel like the fact that she thought for even a second that this could have been “Bitch’s Brew” means that she has clearly never heard “Bitch’s Brew”?
Oh, and also, “Suf.” #LOLOL
Jesus fuckin fuck. WELL, AT LEAST HE IS CONSISTENT.
I mean, regardless of how anybody feels about the music, this has got to be the single most annoying press release/bio I have ever seen. Holy fuck.
I mean, it seems like people are voting for the song they wish would be all over the place, but in reality I have some awful news: the song of the summer is going to be the bro-reggae ridiculousness of Magic’s “Rude” (which has slowly climbed the iTunes charts and currently sits at Number 1, above both “Problem” and “Fancy”). I am not endorsing this as a good song! I’m just stating a fact. It will be heard at every bar, every club, all over the radio, played by every fucking wedding band. We’re doomed. If you want to vote for the BEST song of the summer, that’s a different poll. If you want to vote on which song we think will be fucking everywhere, it is that steaming turd. Mark my words.
This comment is so Brooklyn-Vegan-Commenters-circa-2009
This is amazing. I find the original to be so cloying, but it’s amazing how suddenly the exact same awful lyrics twist and become heartbreaking in this context. Awesome.
Tom, if I could give you all the thumbs up in the world for that comment, I would.
