Ha! At least that piece has the appeal of absurdity (and as someone who has read his share of Lester Bangs, I appreciate me some absurdity, as that is what is much of rock ‘n’ roll).

This one, sadly, only has office break room-level drama.

You DO understand that the “Garden State” lines were about someone else, right?

That may be the single biggest irrelevant paragraph I’ve ever had to wade through in order to get to actual information about music.

My favorite thing in this thread is how almost EVERY SINGLE PIC is being downvoted.

Someone’s obviously working very hard to make sure their meager vote total wins.

Unless…hey, claiming theft is a good way to get you in Billboard, apparently.

WTF.

Like the attorney says, not the same. Like the attorney says, not close.

If RTJ wants to try and trademark “two (random colored, random textured) disembodied hands doing (random thing),” they’re welcome to try, but I mean, really?

Pharrell filming women who are dancing sensual choreography wants relates to Terry Richardson like my doing 75 on the freeway relates to Marc Bolan.

There is some dispute over whether she’s been miming her “showcase” instrumentals and lip-syncing her vocals for years now…

I don’t know enough to be able to tell if she was actually fingering the correct notes on that solo, but the CONCEPT makes it cool.

Prince celebrates pretty much everything with a concert at Paisley Park, doesn’t he?

Would be nice to hear more from the concert though, especially if it’s directly from the board like the YouTube thing above.

My first instinct would be to put “Dirty Mind” up there too, but then I realize that would be more on its prescience than my actual love for it.

I think of the original list, “Purple Rain” and “Sign O’” are absolutely dead-on – they have a head-and-shoulders-ness about their songwriting and melodic sense. They’re Prince’s Sgt. Pepper and White Album.

I’d probably put “Dirty Mind” at number 3, toss everything else from “For You” to “Love Symbol” up in the air and take whatever order they come down in, slot in “The Gold Experience” and then toss everything else from the ’90s in the air, then pull out “3121″ and repeat with everything else post-2000.

My main question is why “Rainbow Children” is included but not “New Power Soul.” Not that I care in any way for “New Power Soul.”
