I’m really glad it’s not a new Taylor Swift song. I’ve had enough of her this week.
I’ll usually go to bat for almost any of the poptarts, but Taylor Swift is really one of the worst, despite her popularity. She’s just milquetoast and bland.
“Luna” for sure is about Courtney Love, I’m not sure if any other songs on Siamese Dream are though. I have a hard time believing that “Today”, in particular, is about her.
I suppose it’s pretty easy to have “a soft spot for pop music” when you’re a pop musician.
Agreed. This album is phenomenal.
While I like both of these songs, I can see how Britney’s people would turn them down: they don’t sound like anything close to her brand of pop music. They sound, however, a lot like Prince, which means they probably would work a lot better for a number of other pop singers. Dev Hynes could potentially become the new Sia Furler, now that Sia Furler has returned to just being Sia.
Ya know what, I don’t doubt for a second that he was too fucked up on vicodin to remember recording “Blurred Lines”.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t the dude from Black Lips have some less-than-enlightened things to say about hip-hop earlier this year? I seem to remember him having to “clarify” his usage of the word “ratchet” at some point. Just sayin’.
Really enjoy the Awolnation cover. I wish they weren’t typically lumped in with Bastille and Imagine Dragons; they’re actually a pretty competent band.
