The Number Ones: Herman’s Hermits’ “I’m Henry VIII, I Am”
I have made many arguments in the past that the sound of the engine ripping and tires screeching all over this song is the beginning of noise pop.

The Number Ones: Bert Kaempfert’s “Wonderland By Night”
I've put this song on mixes for years and it sometimes gets a side-eye from people in the room and i'm like "YO how you gonna like early Wilco and not think this is a great song?!"

This test makes total sense, but it's funny because I turned 13 in 2000 which I feel is a year I continue to take a nap on generally.

Smashing Pumpkins Recording Reunion Album Produced By Rick Rubin
As much as I'm still amused by the Soy Bomb moment as it was, I really love Tom B's assessment of it from his Time Out of Mind piece... "What strikes me is Dylan himself. Before Portnoy’s interruption, that had been a great Dylan performance — Dylan and his band all fully locked in, guitars quietly growling and purring, Dylan’s voice a rasping and decayed husk of the nasal twang that had helped make him famous a few decades earlier. And after Portnoy, it remained a great performance. Dylan didn’t react to the interruption at all. He didn’t stop singing or playing, and as security pulled Portnoy away, Dylan merely glanced at him, bored. This was nothing to Dylan. Dylan had already seen everything."

Soy Bomb, ODB, Aretha, & The Craziest Grammys Ever: An Oral History Of The 1998 Grammys
not to defend Sam Smith who will likely say something jerkface-ish if ever confronted with this, but I will also point out that Lana Del Rey's "Get Free" suffers from the same "Creep" problem, more so even in that she cops the melody as well.

Hear The New Sam Smith Song That Rips Off Radiohead
urgh, only the second half of my comment posted. Does anyone recall a video that the band posted on Dead Air Space a few months early that had little edit pieces of stuff from what turned out to be In Rainbows?
October 10, 2017
If I recall correctly, it had little edit snips of "Down is the New Up," "Faust Arp," "Bangers and Mash," Jigsaw Falling Into Place," and and I think "Nude."

No, "Picture" is an awful song.

I run an indie dance party in Brooklyn. It's called Young Adult Friction. As for weddings, I tailor it to whatever the bride and groom likes, but most of my clients are people who want parties like YAF.
