There have been some really great albums this year; Spoon, Ryan Adams, Beck, Jenny Lewis and Jack White, to name a few, but I’ve got to say Conor Oberst’s Upside Down Mountain is my favorite.
It’s almost impossible to pick my favorite R.E.M. song so I’ll just choose one of my favorites from this box set, “(Don’t Go Back To) Rockville.”
I love their version of Iggy Pop’s “The Passenger” … http://youtu.be/u_wFRLDo6OI
Hate to be that guy but Win joined Mavis onstage, not the other way around … http://youtu.be/5_iEbgC5X-E
I hope he invited Portland Cello Project to play on he record. Their take on the Song Reader project is great.
I’m in my late 30′s and don’t want to hear the hits from high school and/or get drunk. I want to watch two great bands put on an amazing show and hear songs from their entire catalog, not just the radio hits.
“In My Life”
I know it’s a lame answer but nothing tops “London Calling.” From the bass line, to the guitar riffs and Joe’s howls, it’s a perfect rock & roll song!
