My personal favorite “Creep” cover will always be the brief, but perfect Eric Cartman & Ned duet in the greatest South Park episode ever: “Scott Tenorman Must Die” (featuring Radiohead, no less)
HOLY FUCK this is amazing!
I was gut laughing whilst reading the whole thing.
The #GreatScottConspiracy is real you guys.
p.s. Thank You for kicking off the holidays with a laugh!
Is it an Arts Festival or a Music Festival?!?!
AAARRRGHGHHH Make up your mind Coachella GAH!
Scott Stapp and Kid Rock stories back to back??
Who at Stereogum HQ is getting ideas from old backstage sex tapes?
Also peculiar that ‘C’ is the 3rd letter of the alphabet, ‘I’ looks like a 1 and ‘A’ is the 1st letter of the alphabet.
Sorry to leave you hanging Dick, but you beat us to the leak it would seem!
I gave it a late night listen, “Crosswords” definitely stuck out. Honestly didn’t pay too close attention, but then again my mind tends to drift when I’m in the Panda Bear zone.
Give me some more time to process it, and we’ll meet back here in December for a champagne jam.
Oh I agree with you and blochead. The majority of it isn’t very emotional aside from “Sexual Athletics” & “Picture Me Gone” — just felt “devoid of emotion” was a little too harsh. “Mostly devoid of emotion” seems fair :)
I still love it though. I moved away from emotional music in 2005 along with the aforementioned girlfriend. It’s no longer a requirement in music I listen to. I’ll take sincerity over emotion any day, though it is pretty great when the two interlock. Which is likely why “Benji” will be considered AOTY for many people and publications. Though his stint with The War on Drugs definitely called its sincerity into question…
Everything about “pom pom” comes off as sincere given what I know of Ariel. Weird dude making oddball songs. Seems like he made them because they were fun, which supports your observation that they’re lacking emotion. But I don’t feel a song like “Nude Beach A Go-Go” suffers because it lacks emotion. I think it succeeds because he sells the fuck out of that song (Azealia does too on her version). Sometimes recognizing a fun song for what it is and performing it in a fun manner is all it takes to create a great song. I think, at least.
Plagiarism wasn’t my intention. I was having a laugh.
There’s a one shot of Derek at 1:04
Cool tune! Wonder what dad-dad-don-tattas thinks of this. Know he loves some Sleigh Bells.
