Find Me On:
This reminds me of that awesome Zach Galifianakis bit where he talks about going into record stores and asking about fake bands.
“Do you guys have the new Frisbee Confusion?”
Woah woah woah… Mr. Nelson, you don’t like Paul McCartney?! He had the best post-Beatles solo career!
Moz’s discography is pretty unwieldy, and like the Smiths his singles were paramount, so more power to ya for throwing this together. That being said, “Piccadilly Palare” is my personal favorite.
Ugh. That’s all I’ve got to say about that.
Carly Rae is getting straight up robbed right now. FUN.?! No fun at all.
Yeah they were a “conscious” rap group before Fergie got thrown into the mix. Not the best, but pretty passable stuff.
Love you, RubbyJohn.
Since early 1992! Kevin Shields is the biggest tease.
I don’t really get the prevailing reaction to these lists. When the #1 song/album isn’t the generally agreed-upon Zeitgeisty pick (e.g. “Soft Bulletin” for the Lips one, “My Girls” and “Grass” for the AC one, etc.), everyone gets all up in arms (i.e. “THIS IS SHIT!”). When it IS the #1 pick (like this), everyone gets all up in arms (i.e. “THIS IS TOTAL SHIT).
I think someone below put it nicely, “Hey Ya!” is one of a very small handful of moments I can remember in my lifetime of twenty-one years when everyone said, “Yes, this song is special.” And the other big names on here (“Roses”, “So Fresh, So Clean”, and “B.O.B.”) are really untouchable singles, so why not include them on this list? Hell, I’d throw “The Way You Move” on here too; that chorus is smooth as butter.
In summation: cool your jets, Stereogummers, and remember that this is one guy’s opinion.
Ugh can Rachel Ray be a bigger turd? Even her name-dropping Paul Weller doesn’t make her likable.
That video of him playing that at the VH1 fashion awards (which, by the way: LOLWUT) is absolutely sublime. For the record, Midnite Vultures remains one of my favorite Beck albums.
LOCK THE GATES!
Addendum, listening back to “Clouds” and “Transmission” one thing is immediately clear: Ronald Jones is one of the best guitarists ever.
Some ordering disagreements aside (I’m personally a huge fan of “Priest Driven Ambulance”, it’d take my number three spot below “Soft Bulletin”), I’m really REALLY psyched that “Clouds” ranked number one. That’s always been my favorite. And “Hit to Death” is pretty criminally under-appreciated, so I’m glad you guys gave that some play as well. I’m actually sure I’m contrarian to what will be the predominant Stereogummer reaction to this, but I’m with you guys. Mid-period Lips has always been my favorite Lips.
Love this record so much.
I think we all owe the Centipede Hz. album cover an apology.
Or this thang, as it were.
Everywhere I turn, people are ragging on this track. I dunno why. It gets me moving, it’s catchy enough, Jay’s verse isn’t great but all in all I’m really digging this thing.
Two top fifty comments? I’m flattered, Stereogummers.
One could also make the case that this was a great year for indie dudes and dudettes plugging guitars back in (see: Japandroids, the Men, METZ, Cloud Nothings, Screaming Females, et al).
I remember a few years ago they gave the first tUnE-yArDs record a low 6 but threw it on their year-end list.
We’ll call her “C. Lobe”.
Hey, don’t think that Animal Collective record was called “Collective”. I also don’t think it was a top twenty of the year, but that’s just me.
Pretty cool that Randy Newman’s on that list. I really love that weirdo.
KIDZ BOP 23 WAS ROBBED!
