Find Me On:
my point is that the immigrants that founded this country brought with them their own musical instruments and traditions. rock n roll came out of deep roots that sometimes get ignored. (hence the title rock and roll and not rhythm and blues). gospel, folk, country, jazz, and numerous other regional musical traditions that existed at the time contributed to what we know as rock and roll. all of those genres, in one way or another, borrow from the influences of their ancestors (yeah italy and france included). rock and roll came from a unique situation and i think the genre exemplifies what’s beautiful about this country.
and where would ?rock n roll? be without the influences of africa.. or ireland..or france..or italy etc. ?rock n roll? is an arbitrary term used to describe a conglomeration of sound that was created through the cross pollination of many different cultures meeting in the same place – the USA. we?re all indebted to each other. quit being so divisive. borders only exist in your mind. BTW to make an argument that no other country could create a dylan or someone like dylan is just absurd. he is an original that could never be duplicated
perhaps he was named after ezra pound. i think he was their lead singer or something
pitchfork always gives dr. dog bad reviews so this is no surprise. Easy Beat – 4.4, we all belong – 5.5. i am a bit taken aback by the fact that they still make reference to a new york times article written in 2004 that tries to shine some light on a then young and up and coming band… how dare they! to say it was a “sloppy tongue kiss of a profile” is laughable. maybe if they hadn’t laid their own premature sloppy tongue kiss on the black kids then they wouldn’t be so sorry now. p4k has lost the plot. that is all.
you know what the best city is? yours. now make it that way
wrong! that was paper planes by m.i.a. duh, don’t you know anything?
can i get that photo of Mulder and Scully in poster form? i want that on my wall

This thread equals “meatloaf and look-a-like kid commercial” in terms of me wanting to destroy my computer.
“his” “music” gives me ADD.
I’ve enjoyed watching Mason Jennings career blossom over the years. It shows what hard work and dedication can do for ya. Having said that, I do feel slightly less than manly listening to this, and a number of his other songs.. still good though
If someone told me that Tay wrote the lyrics to this song I’d probably believe them.
true dat. keep the band, lose the singer. she is quite good at the inaudible sleigh bells though. on a side note, her looks are extremely overrated. not that it matters.. jus saying
if only matt sharp had not left the band…sigh.. he truly is the missing link. ‘return of the rentals’ is a great album that deserves status alongside of blue & pinkerton…imo
