Stereogum: News you can use.
I’m going to assume that your cat walked across the keyboard and “accidentally” typed that…
Thank God for the video! Those lyrics are so deep, now I know what she’s talking about!
The real show happened after. I know watching Lorde cover All Apologies was unbearable, but the rest of it was pretty damn cool!
Aww! I was at that show where they smashed the drums. Seattle Arena in 93′. They played baseball with the guitar and drums. It was a blast :)
Yep. This list is a joke!
In Utero has Kurt’s best crafted songs, yet only one of them makes the list? How about you let a Nirvana fan write the list? For now, it’s probably best you hand your brother back his iPod.
Might as well start with the source and hit Stereogum for spreading this story with ZERO accountability.
I just saw the [f] in the corner of your picture. You are truly an under appreciated songwriter :) “Got no Shadow” and your 7″ of Elliott’s “I figured you out.” still get a healthy rotation in my music collection.
Sending you my best!
Not sure why this was downgraded. Major props on the Mary Lou Lord pic. Another brilliant artist not appreciated in her time.
Last thought: It’s possible the writer didn’t get into Elliott UNTIL he was on Dreamworks. If that’s true, you should leave the Elliott Smith list writing to people who grew up with him.
Better yet, start at Roman Candle and then experience each album every other month, so you can watch the growth of one of the best songwriters of his generation.
