This is difficult to choose. Elton has so many great ones. This is my fave album of his but it’s a toss up between Funeral/Love Lies Bleeding, Grey Seal & Harmony. Then again Pinball Wizard I think is my fave when I really think about it. Final Answer.

Well since it’s a Funny or Die video, it’s obviously a farce.

This song needed a crazy video to distract from the mundaneness of the song/vocals. When I heard this last week I was unimpressed since there’s not enough aural variation to keep one interested at least for me. Also it’s unimpressive from the standpoint that they’ve not put out anything new since ’09′s Zephyr. So good thing this is eye candy & a fun video.

Been following them for the past few years. I’ve seen them live 3 times & Terra’s voice as great as it sounds on their recordings has NO COMPARISON to the force of nature her voice & performance are live! A MUST SEE. Loving this epic new song.

Not Fol Chen’s fault that no one stayed to see your band. LA is their home so of course they’d pack the house. They’re an experimental pop band so it’s a given they’d ‘experiment’ w/their fans. Unfortunate that your band couldn’t bring them back.

Excellent vid/song. I’m looking forward to the new album!

In her own words “I’m gonna ruin you cunt.’ But in this case she’s talking to herself & will be forgotten quickly or at least loathed like Courtney Love(who I still adore). Don’t get me wrong, I like Azealea’s music but she’s quickly becoming better known for her hater antics which won’t stick in people’s heads like shutting the fuck up & just making good tunes will. She needs a good publicist, or more appropriately, a muzzle. Or both.

Very Bjork inspired in the music(especially at the beginning of the song) & that image . . . .
