Didn't fit in the column, but I really love Edwin Starr's "Easin' In," a deep cut from his 1973 Hell Up In Harlem soundtrack: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOBh4NZ4wZQ Got sampled on a bunch of great songs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxe5f371rrg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ZAvS8QFTV4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8A1LA0WGoA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5SZAMBdHHY

Slow release times are good because then you get to listen to weird shit you might've never otherwise heard. Like this!

It was tight but also low-key. Tame Impala weren't what they are now, and I was all jacked up to see AC/DC.

Rihanna or Ariana would be the biggest layup in the world.

Ryan is from Wilkes Barre. He now lives in Brooklyn, which is an entirely different kind of shithole. (I've never seen him wear a leather jacket, and he's never seen Almost Famous, so he can only be so nostalgic for a fake 70s.)

We at Stereogum have supported Robbie Williams through this difficult time. And through it all, we offered him protection, a lot of love and affection, whether he's right or wrong. And down the waterfall, wherever it may take him, we know that life won't break him. He's loving angels instead.

Matter of fact, South Korean crime epic The Man From Nowhere would also like a word. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAiRifWPgi4 South Korean crime epics know about some knife fights.

Nothing was even remotely close to Cardi on my year-end list. "Bandcamp hardcore + Cardi B" is basically my taste profile. Also, I went to Damaged City the weekend that Invasion of Privacy came out, and bands were banging that album from phone speakers at their merch tables. Cardi played the fuckin Knockdown Center! The idea that that hardcore and Cardi are incompatible is frankly baffling to me.

Poptimism was a prevailing ethos in music criticism for years before I went to work for this site and insisted on posting about american idol.

No, I just didn't like it as much as the ones I picked. There's a formlessness to it that keeps me at arm's length.

December 3, 2018 on The Number Ones: The Temptations’ “I Can’t Get Next To You”
Still going back and forth on that. The first one listed is "Come Together"/"Something," but then "Something" went to #3 on its own, so it seems like not even Billboard knew what it was doing with that. I'm kinda inclined to just go with the A-sides, but I also don't like the idea of not writing about "California Love."

I will save further America comment for when I actually get to their #1s but the soundtrack to The Last Unicorn goes hard.

Orrrrrr maybe if they were around then, they'd be writing big-band pastiches or recording fake folk-blues.
