Did Josh make it with Polly during their collaboration?
I Don’t Want to Get Over You
It doesn’t _really_ annoy me. It just looks lame, that’s all.
You know what annoys me? When the frontman in a band pretends to play guitar in a live televised performance when he’s obviously just singing and he’s got other guys on stage playing the guitar parts. Is he really that uncomfortable just standing there and singing?
Tom, promise me you won’t ever say “swag” again in any of your articles.
Aha, thank you for bringing that to my attention. Should have said “ladies.” Although “guys” is kind of gender-neutral, it doesn’t work as well if one is referring to an all-female group.
I haven’t listened to any of their songs yet, but I already love these guys for telling people to put their fucking cellphones away and be present for a few minutes.
My guess is that this is the single version, shorter than the album version but longer than a teaser.
One of the great joys in my life has been dancing to the first 3 songs on ‘Remain in Light.’
His girlfriend is going to just love looking at that gem every time they have sex.
Me too, but only slightly, because I doubt his vocals have a large presence on the album. Let’s face it: Pharrell is a legendary producer, but not a great singer. He has no business singing on a Daft Punk track when they easily could have gotten someone else to sing.
How is the name pronounced? “J-EYE” Paul or “JAY” Paul?
It’ll be ‘Wakin On a Pretty Daze’ if there is any justice around here.
Can’t bloody wait to hear this! ‘Smoke Ring for My Halo’ is probably the finest record of the last 7-8 years. Yeah, that’s right. What a treasure. It unfolds with one subtly beautiful song after another. Completely blew me away and continues to.
Question for you, Mike: If you had been tapped to do the 10 Best Strokes Songs list, would you have placed “12:51″ at #1 since it’s your _personal_ favorite, or would you have gone with something else, for reasons other than crude personal taste?
Whoops. That wasn’t meant to be a reply, just a general thread comment.
The main guitar riff sounds a bit Franz Ferdinand ca. 2004.
Further evidence that Aaron is the best at making these lists.
Their “Lovecrimes” cover was my favorite song of last year. I too hope that they get their fannies back in the studio for a full-length.
Good list, Claire! I actually think ALL of the lists so far have been thoughtfully put together and enjoyable, and the protesters in the comment section are generally too harsh and opinionated.
The list-makers seem to be aware of how inherently silly it is to declare 10 songs “the best,” but they’re going ahead and having fun with it anyway, deliberately building the list the way they want to, with reasons why certain songs are included or excluded. Should it be geared more toward “hits” or deep cuts? Etc…
This is not scientific. And it’s _their_ personal list, not yours, so stop acting so offended. You have permission to enjoy “Juicy” just as much as you always have. And if you don’t know, now you know.
