This song is absolutely stunning. It’s Oasis covering Cat Stevens’ “Trouble”.
(h/t, as often, to Ann)
Franz Ferdinand, “Walk Away” off of You Could Have Had It So Much Better
Oasis performing an acoustic version of “Live Forever”, off of Definitely Maybe.
This pleases me greatly.
Was just talking to Ann about the new Chuck Ragan (formerly of Hot Water Music, I come to find out) solo album she passed me. It’s amazing stuff, and I thought I’d share. So here’s a fan video/slide show thing set to my favorite track off the album, “Geraldine.”
The album is Feast or Famine and it’s fantastic. (Many thanks to Ann for sharing the music-love.)
An awesome song and super-cool fan video. (h/t to Ann)
50 Cent makes an excellent point regarding censorship/bowdlerization and language hypocrisy. Admittedly his latest run-in with censorship has lest to do with him using foul language as it does him bragging about, you know, murdering people, but I think he’s right that, as a rap artist, his albums will receive a lot more scrutiny from the social censors as will albums from artists working in other genres. This could be framed in one of two ways: 1.) People are discriminating against rap music, or 2.) People don’t actually listen to the lyrics of pop songs anymore.
Okay, okay, so I know I’ve been sucking at posting here lately. Work, school, the holidays, etc. have, along with my regular disorganization and procrastinatory skills, conspired to kill any chance of me keeping up on projects like this lately.
So, in the interests of prepping for the end of the semester and getting back on track (i.e. clearing out my “shit to blog about” folder) and due to the fact that there’s basically nothing coming out this week (aside from the new Mudvayne album), next week’s review will be of the latest Sigur Ros album, and there will be no voting for this week.
P.S: Happy belated Thanksgiving to all.
