Despite my more modern music sensibilities now, I would still put "Roundabout" in my top 10 songs all time. Everything about it is great, leading up to the harmonies at the very end as the icing on the cake.

I live just outside of Oakland -- this year's Warriors are the most fun team I've ever witnessed. I'm hoping they can find some offense against the Griz.

Just a quick note about the Palma Violets album -- they sound exactly like the Men now, which is weird. I like it though.

You're so right. "Norwegian Wood" is such a full, complete, beautiful song.... and it's only 2:05!

I just listened to "I Can Do No Wrong," and whoa. That song was amazing. Need to check out the whole thing.

I'm all about that Nai Harvest album. I need more Japandroids-esque music in my life.

This is so beautifully gritty. It's really REALLY hard to beat 1968-1972 Stones.

Loving those harmonies on "Sound and Color" by Alabama Shakes right now.

I remember when it generally started gaining traction, but someone should research the comments sections and do an oral history/recap for us on its origin.

The Passion Pit singles still sounded a little too sugary to me. Is the rest of the album more toned down then?

I am really digging this. Nothing new, but right up my alley.

I do love the Beach Boys vibe on the Ramones' stuff, especially "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend." Reminds me how one time, I was listening to "Last Nite" by the Strokes, and it hit me that if you strip it of the grit and grime, it could have easily been a Lennon-McCartney composition in 1964. It suits John's vocal style, the chords and drum beat are simple enough, and even the guitar solo is very "George"-ish. I love that.

Forgot to say this on the "What Kind of Man" post, but when I first that song on the radio, I thought for sure it was Stevie Nicks.

"Teenage Dream" is legitimately one of the best pop songs of the last 10 years. Maybe even THE best. I used to classify it as a guilty pleasure, but I don't even care any more. That song kills.
