"don't disturb this groove" is a 5? i'm sorry but my groove has been disturbed
wish Bill could've taken a stab at Durk's verse
"(Spotify doesn’t disclose more detailed information about artists’ streaming numbers beyond the playcount that’s publicly visible in the top 10 most popular songs.)" not sure if this is what the author meant, but you can view the stream count of any song on desktop by hovering the cursor over the rightmost column (the one with bars and the thumbs up sign on top).
was gonna post that, really good song on its own merits.
RIP Doe B, who used my favorite interpolation of "Return Of The Mack" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yg9OOEeOTUQ
shaking right now. he was an outrageously talented artist, bringing a clarity, wit, and perspective that you just don't see very often. rest in peace
those 8 seconds where the hammond organ comes in is one of the best moments in the history of recorded sound
idk this seems like one of those things that would be at least worth a phone call
never a bad time to mention that Yves Jarvis is one of the best acts going, and his track here is typically offbeat and mesmerizing
If there's one thing about Nas that we can all agree on, it's that Pitbull is better.
commenting here cause i don't want to be comment 700 on wednesday's column, just wanna say that Yes is better than your favorite band.
According to Wikipedia, "Every Breath You Take" is the most-performed song in the BMI repertoire, which roughly translates to: "Every Breath You Take" has been played on the radio more than any other song in history. It's by far my least favorite Police single, all their other top tens are better. And "King Of Pain" could only be a 4 to someone who likes to be the CAUSE of pain to someone who thinks it's a clear 9. (Wrapped Around Your Finger is great too, c'mon).
Also important to note that "Fame" at x1.25 speed is at least a 9
I'd probably switch the grades for "Fame" and "Flashdance," though I might bump the latter up to a 7 because of those proggy intro synths. "Fame" is a banger, man.
lots of good picks in this thread, gonna highlight five great ones that people haven't mentioned yet key glock - yellow tape kahlil blu - dog mozzy - beyond bulletproof r.a.p. ferreira - purple moonlight pages los & nutty - panagnl4e, vol. 2
I know we're all thinking it, so I'm just gonna say it. Rivers Cuomo and Weezer are capital-C Cowards for changing the key for their cover of "Africa."
Had this album when I was ten, but my parents would only let me get the clean version. Which, mercifully, spared me from hearing "Kim" and instead replaced it with this novelty South Park homage https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OfsxuVyOdk
Polo is so freakin good. he has superhuman melodic skill--it goes far beyond the general rap warbling crowd, he could be a massive radio hitmaker if he wanted to be. Future and Durk are obvious influences, yes, but the rapper he reminds me of most is Wiz Khalifa. Stylistically, I mean. Lyrically, he packs more substance into a single verse than Wiz's decade-long career. The GOAT isn't quite as good as Die A Legend, true. It suffers a little bit from second album syndrome, but it's a great sign that Polo can work as well within the major label rap context as he can in his own siloed, sad world. It still has some gutting lyrics, and some moments where I stand in awe of his talent. I lost count of all the times he kept the same rhyme scheme for an entire 16-bar verse. Oh, and if you're worried people won't notice, looks like The GOAT is set to move between 85-95k units in its first week.
is the Nick Hakim album out this week too?
one thing people don't usually mention about kraftwerk is that they were a hell of a lot of fun. important, yes, but they had a great sense of humor and we're crazy good live performers.
