I’d add in the Boy least Likely To’s Christmas repertoire. I mean, “Jingle My Bells”? Cheeky. :)
Cheers, Claire. Looking forward to reading your stuff!
Such a lovely and surprising record. Tracey seems like just the kind of musician I’d love to chat with over a cuppa tea.
Decemberists’ “Hazards of Love,” anyone?
And OK, I’ll be the one to make the case for “The Black Parade.” Two words: Liza Minelli.
Also, let’s throw Smashing Pumpkins’ “Machina” and Princess Superstar’s “My Machine” in there, too.
I feel really wrong and dirty for actually liking this. Like I need a shower. With James Franco. :)
*salivates* So ace!
“Unconventional doesn’t mean dysfunctional.”
I want a shirt that says this! God, I freaking love this band.
Aw, man, “Experimental Jet Set” is the album that got me into Sonic Youth. Wish it were higher. But I realize with such an immense discography, this list wasn’t going to please everyone.
- waiting breathlessly for the SY catalog to get even bigger, but that’s probably not gonna happen. Sigh.
Megan – for the record, the dance tent was a wonky experience. The comedy was hit or miss (I really did not need to hear David Cross vividly describe a colonic), and the DJs in general were playing for the wrong crowd. Tanlines knocked it outta the park, though!
Aaron, my condolences to you and yours. For some reason, folks tend to forget that rock journalists are people, too, and sometimes speaking of your own experience is called for, even necessary. May peace find you.
Billie Joe has never looked better. :D
