July 15, 2015 on Miguel Credits Billy Corgan On Song That Sorta Sounds Like “1979”

It’s not mathematics, it’s art. Yes “feel” has a lot to do with it. I don’t believe that Corgan should be payed in any way shape or form for the Miguel song, but I do believe that “Leaves” would not exist if “1979” did not. I absolutely hear the direct influence. But again it is art and it’s not black and white, it falls into that grey area that most interesting things do.

I could strum “Louis Louis”, approximate the progression with different chords and you would recognize it you dandy little fop. Most good (Memorable, recognizable) songs have something unique about the approach of playing it. You will not find any examples of good songs on your Morrissey records fancyboy.

That being said, Billy Corgan apparently stole that progression from Jimmy Flemion of The Frogs.

I hear it. It even has the little echo thing at the end of the progression. The strumming pattern, the chord changes, the whole approach is 1979. It’s like someone trying to play 1979 but hitting the wrong chords.

“Laffitte Don’t Fail Me Now” is my personal favorite but A Series of Sneaks is definitely the best Spoon album. The second half is absolutely perfect.

I dunno, but this guy is an asshole ^^^. Thank you for defending Billy & his sincere love of this wrestling thing. I don’t follow wrestling but I love his music & have no idea what he’s doing here but support it simply because he is so earnest about it. Billy Corgan can do whatever he wants, & I’m sure everyone (including me) will catch up at some point. In any case I truly appreciate your exposition of the smugness & shittyness in this article. I will follow Billy to the end, & Melloncollie is an apocalypse album if I’ve ever heard one.

I really hate trying to like an album… There just isn’t enough variation! With music that sounds like this you have to employ some dynamics. It is the same fast bouncy tempo throughout & whatever semblance of a melody is never resolved. AND am I the only one who thinks Strawberry Jam is clearly the best AC album??

March 29, 2012 on Field Report – “I Am Not Waiting Anymore” & “Fergus Falls”

I can’t believe that bands can still get away with mediocre unimaginative shit like this. The song sucks in just about every way I can think of. Skrillex is slightly less boring…

Michael, your ploy has worked & just I looked at Awkward Sound. You can stop blogging now.

Odd Future’s “Rella” video was really great. I had almost given up hope.
