Dude, Rhapsody used to be my life. My family subscribed to it while I was in middle school/high school and it played a huge role in my musically formative experiences. I always looked forward to the days when I put together those 19 songs or so (it seemed 20 songs was always just over 80 minutes) and burned a new mix CD. I remember a specific CD I burned in middle school that featured a song each from Sum 41, P.O.D., and the Strokes, back before I realized that one of those bands was CONSIDERABLY better than the other two, haha. And you could stream all the songs with no limits back then. Man I loved Rhapsody. Haven’t used it in years though.
This was already alluded to in the comments, but dude. I guarantee that if I ever hear “Instant Crush” on shuffle, for a split second I’ll think I landed on a track from Comedown Machine.
You know what The Band song is awesome? “Chest Fever.”
Oh my gosh, what is this from? Hahaha
Re: Raptor Jesus’ #6 comment on Charli XCX.
That’s pretty much exactly why it took me so long to check out tUnE-yArDs. I thought the alternating capital letters was incredibly stupid. Turns out I was the stupid one, because Garbus is a genius.
Flaming Lips killed it on The Terror. That album is straight-up haunting.
I really want to love this album, but too many of the songs sound the same to me. They kind of meander and don’t grab me. “Sacrilege” is killer though.
Crazy Horse in overdrive. I can’t stop playing this album.
That pun is too good to be so lowly rated. You guys have to cut this guy some slack, he deserves it!
As a Berkeley resident, “Step” was particularly exciting.
If they do, I hope they play more individual shows. It felt like they went heavy on the festivals last year, most of which I couldn’t go to :/
It’s sad that I have to be “impressed” with Jay-Z’s rapping effort nowadays, but he destroyed here. And then Kendrick took it and hit it out of the park.
I see what you did there
Lot of good vibes going here. You guys are awesome.
I’m in favor of every mashup, because why the hell not? If it sucks, I’ll quickly pass by it, but props to these DJs getting creative and combining the most random songs together.
All throughout my teenage years, Let it Bleed was my favorite, but now I have to go with Beggars Banquet. The acoustic tracks on that album really get me for some reason: “No Expectations,” “Prodigal Son,” “Factory Girl.” Also, “Street Fighting Man” is just pure adrenaline and energy, I love it.
Aaaaaand I’m slow on the uptake because I just realized he commented on this thread. Cool dude indeed! I rest my case.
I got to interview Free Energy’s lead singer Paul Sprangers for our college newspaper and that guy is awesome! Really sincere, cool dude. I’m seeing them in SF tomorrow and I can’t wait.
I legitimately think that “Lisztomania” is one of the greatest songs of all time, no exaggeration. So I just need to tell myself that there won’t be another “Lisztomania” and then it will all be okay. *Sigh* I can do this.
Remember when we all used to like the Black Keys? I miss those days.
This beat is dope
“Who Sees You” is by far my favorite track. It’s perfect.
Okay, for some reason it showed up on Safari but not Firefox. Weird. Mystery solved. Or at least, mystery dealt with.
