After all this crap.... I'm actually really comfortable with mp3s finally.... if they are 320 they sound real good..... maybe for blasting loud on a stereo the cd or vynl is a bit better but... ehhhh

P.S. I am shocked to say that I prefer the Steve Miller version on this one! haha.

Does anyone know if he ever got sued or anything? For the record, I dont think he would deserve to be or should be, but I'm just really curious if he managed to fly under the radar. I can't tell how popular. I feel like part of the reason they ended so abrubtly if because he felt the backlash coming and smartly got out in front of it. Most of the song ripoffs are on the third album so I think its really cool he got out when he did instead of running the well dry. Oh and also 'home' strikes me as very similar to 'this must be the place'

Do you think he could successfully sue last night? Its just the beat mostly, right? I cant hear a melody similarity. I'm glad he didn't try though. I really don't think it should be ok to sue about pop songs and simple melodies unless like.. everything is the same. Its a toxic environment for everybody.. you make art by copying other people.. especially at first.

What a chill dude. Man I must be like tone deaf. I can kind of hear the melody in the chorus is the same at first.. .and then it sounds different to me... the songs are so different in attitude and production.... I remember spoon tweeted about the similarity a while ago but I didn't think they were that close to warrant the comparison.

I still love him too despite the fact that he rips off songs 1:1. Like... alll of them. Its a serious problem. But..... I don't know... his aesthetic is and production are so rock-solid. ANyway, here's the list. Some of the are really egregious. See what you think. Never As Tired As Waking Up = Dear Prudence North American Scum = Pete Shelley’s “Homosapien" somebody's calling me = nightclubbing (iggy pop) Dance Yrself Clean = Jamaica Running - The pool (the beat.. exactly..) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H6Bae3R49ew drunk girls = white light/white heat There's more.. Im sure.... But James Murphy's whole point is his sounds... not his songwriting per se. so. I dunno. I still love him.

Song is pretty sweet. I don't like the pop music production elements of it (the reverse-reverb type thing that leads into the choruses). She did such a good job of skirting that line with the last album. Id hate for her to sink to GaGa depths of cheesiness.

January 13, 2015 on Premature Evaluation: Sleater-Kinney No Cities To Love
Although mp3s aren't quite as good as CDs, in the history of recorded music they are still quite good. Ive come around to the fact that they aren't the Worst Thing thats happened to music by a long shot. Most people listen on laptop speakers anyway, when I come across something really well recorded (Spoon, St. Vincent, etc) yeah, I'm gonna get it on CD. But otherwise.... the difference between a decent mp3 and cd just isnt so great as to get upset about it.

I think its just getting old, sadly. The aging process sucks. Even if you had cotten in your ears your whole life by age 40 you'd likely still have some hearing loss.

Yeah I agree. Having mixed a lot of stuff at 24 bit I was shocked when I realized cds play at only 16. Shit sounds so much better at 24. Its not night and day but there is a definite improvement at 24.
