Oh man, all of those NY waiters are going to be pissed off they can’t wear that as a t-shirt.
Honorable mention [disqualified for being a cover/collaboration]: “Sleep All Summer” with The National.
Why are we assuming that a “cool pop song” has less merit than any other kind of song? Catchiness isn’t easy.
The Obvious Child.
The Seeger record’s really, really great if you don’t bring your Springsteen baggage with you.
Yikes. Sounds like the pained spiral-bound confessions of a spurned undergraduate.
Man, I really feel bad about insulting Girl T…*exultant guitar solo from Bohemian Rhapsody*/ *cause it’s a bitter sweet symphony that’s life* /*[drumline from "Bawitdaba"]*/ hey I just met you! this is crazy! / You crazy for this one, Rick!
Oh my god it’s a pile-on. I’m sorry! I didn’t mean to insinuate that you can’t still play Girl Talk at totally awesome bar mitzvahs and beer pong parties! You totally can! It’s just both of these pairings were essentially predicted by quick Youtubers and the back catalog of classic rock that GT relies has already been chewed through. Postmodernism eats itself! The problem with Girl Talk [and Hood Internet] is that it’s a kind of race for the continent acquisition world, and there are only so many catchy Ludcris raps and Boston guitar licks. There’s going to be a point of diminishing returns with Girl Talk, and I think Feed the Animals already turned that corner. If you guys are really excited to hear Daft Punk paired with Michael Jackson again [or to hear Get Lucky done in a different way], that’s totes chill pass me a Mike’s Hard Lemonade.
Yeah, I don’t think we need Girl Talk anymore.
Guys, it’s called Bubble Butt. Fix your title.
Can’t tell if I’m being trolled by a completely reasonable top 10 Stereogum list.
Arc of Time (Time Code)
Still waiting on my vinyl copy of Channel Orange tho.
FUCK YOU BRYCE BULLINS
Yeah man, heaven forbid someone actually enjoy music rather than a posturing matrix for public judgment.
Let’s stop pretending that there aren’t genius producers working for every pop icon, maybe?
The Crane Wife
That Major Lazer video is brilliant. It’s a Master Class in relevance compared to the Grimes one, which is like a freshman art school project with a bigger budget.
And “pollenate.” I can’t brain today. I have the dumb.
And please excuse “imput.” I have degrees. I shouldn’t be using non-words like that.
The less visual/biographical imput I get on Grimes, the better. I love the music, but this whole Post-Circuswave Hobopunk I’m Going To Sail A Raft Down The Mississippi scene thing–now seemingly cross-pollenated with some sort of Gaga Sailor Moon Tarantino Harajuku thing–just gets me down, man. This is a hot mess.
Yeah but stereogum is an undersite.
