"Family Affair" is the rawest, darkest #1 song of all time.

You just reminded me of that time The Other Site said Ginger was the best Spice Girl even though "she sort of looked like a tranny." https://pitchfork.com/features/lists-and-guides/7856-a-feature-about-nothing-the-1990s-in-lists/?page=3

Got married just last year and can confirm you've all got the right idea here: Play songs most people would actually dance to, and save yr deep cuts for cocktail hour or the very end after the normies and olds have called it a night. Clever playlists can go very, very bad. Example: Right after the couple's first dance at my wife's cousin's wedding, the DJ played "Can't Hurry Love" by the Supremes and segued into "We Found Love" by Rihanna. GET IT?! Knowing 1) the night was young and therefore peak baby boomer dancing time, 2) "We Found Love" is way too recent/clubby for baby boomers to dance to, and 3) it has a long-ass intro before the beat drop, I whispered to my wife, "The DJ just lost the dancefloor. Watch: Everyone over 40 is gonna look confused and then sit down, the dancefloor will fall below critical mass, and no more than 6 people at a time will be on the floor for the rest of the night." And that's exactly what happened. Congrats to everyone who has gotten/is getting married!

Keane had at least one monster hook per album. "Somewhere Only We Know", "Is It Any Wonder?", and "Spiralling" were the only reasons I bought those three albums.

1) Great post, Julia. 2) Is there a GIF of that girl's face at 1:06? If not, there needs to be. 3) My guy misses the dunk at 3:08.

If you buy something planning to keep/enjoy it yourself then later decide to sell it, I'm cool with that. If you buy something solely to flip it for a profit, you can go to Hell.

I'll third "Celebrity Skin" being an awesome karaoke song. And yeah, it's a massive injustice that the world remembers Courtney as Kurt's widow/that crazy lady on drugs and not the person who made Celebrity Skin and fucking Live Through This.

In iTunes alphabetical order, the most embarrassing Other Site reviews: Andrew W.K.—I Get Wet Basement Jaxx—Rooty Belle & Sebastian—Arab Strap Daft Punk—Discovery Flaming Lips—Zaireeka IMO that Discovery review by Ry Guy himself may be the most embarrassing write-up in Other Site history.

She really doesn't. It goes without saying on sites like Stereogum that Live Through This is a classic album, but I think music nerds forget just how many people know who Courtney Love is but haven't even heard of it let alone listened to it. The answer is a lot—a lot of people.

"As a Grade 7 social studies and language arts teacher, I will say that this is a terribly written opinion/argument. I would be confused by a student who argued something is the best thing in a long time, then argued it also sucks." Avoid slashes. Pick a word and run with it. C+ SEE ME. -eg
