i sort of came around to "the gold song." hearing it live did that because you're right, i disliked it initially. it's good, but it's far from being one of my favorites.

"sounds of the city" is really good that was a good album. we could talk about some serious music progression they've done over the years ("who's gonna throw the toilet, who's gonna throw the toilet off the roof..." i just listened to that the other day, actually).

"better things" is a kinks song i never did get around to finding the original. i should do that. i should also have gone to sleep by now...

I like The Gold Song quite a bit, not sure what your deal on that one was. Hater.

Sleep is for hippies.

hippies now? i thought it was for the weak. true, hippies are weak. but not all weak are hippies.

i'm listening to the original "better things". i'll take the souls' version any day.

i might have mentioned this in one of the back pages of this thread, but it needs to be mentioned again. the sheer music apprecation in so many of the souls songs is great. bullying the juke box, that song, sing along forever, the major nod to springsteen in so jersey, i'm sure there's more that i'm forgetting.

the 80s movies love i can do without.

hey, now i'm listening to the gold record rather than sleeping. what the fuck.

It was a darkness all my own
A song played on the radio
It went straight to my heart
I carried it with me until the darkness was
GOOOOONNNNE

haha, yes, of course, only one of their best songs ever. and now i must listen to it. nope, nothing has changed.

i was listening to the undertones "teenage kicks" on youtube and reading people's comments. them saying the riff from the misfits "some kinda hate" and "teenage kicks" are rip-offs is like me saying that the street dogs ripped off "gone" when they recorded "jakes." it's punk rock, there's only so much musically a band can do to make the same chords sound unique.

Pfft, don't those youtube people know that U2 created all rock and roll sounds and THEY were the first and only punk band? Everyone is ripping them off. Everyone. They wrote this post first, I'm ripping them off.

I like East Side Mags quite a bit, but there's still something about the video that's so lame it's almost hilarious. It goes without saying that I like Manthem better as well.
