Honestly, if you like those three Pavement songs, there's certainly more where that came from. Terror Twilight is a pretty mellow album overall and has a number of Gold Soundz-type vibes, for example.

Gump - I could have sworn "Golden" was a Ryan Adams song until I actually looked at the list description. The vocals are so similar to his earlier stuff.

Listening to Lemonmelon's playlist right now. Just finished the Hoodoo Gurus song.

I am digging the 80's pop. I was familiar with some (I Will Melt With You, Live To Tell) and others I haven't heard in quite a while (Ship of Fools, Heart and Soul). I was born in 1990, so I barely missed the 80's but I remember hearing some of these songs on the radio and I smiled in remembrance. I thought it was really strong in the beginning but it honestly, got a little gloomy and repetitive at times with the 80's synthesizers after a while. But it was still enjoyable. I am being a little nit-picky, sorry. But I thought when the guitars were introduced as a more vital part of the song around the Pulp song it was more upbeat somehow. Flow was good as always but I think the transition from Roxy Music to Pulp could of been a little better. More thoughts along the way as I listen...

Glad you're liking it.

Nobody was on Interference today and I was running some errands, so I'm going to wait to start group 3 until Monday.

212 you are off to a hell of a start. Aquemini into Protection gave me an erection, an inspired transition.

You're starting to lose me a little bit in this middle period though.

Although I did like Dramarama's nod to Ice Cube's $100 Bill Y'all.

well well. well well well well well. wellity wellity well. we might just have a new favourite for this competition, bonoruinyoucunt. first of all, im continuing with my policy of honesty in these lists. i have underestimated your music tastes. this is quite offensive im sure but i think i had your tastes pegged a little more narrow, which is obviously insane given you post on this forum, listen to a shitload of music old and new, blah blah blah blah, so i apologise for having silent misgivings ahead of your list. your tastes are likely wider than mine. this is the most ive ever enjoyed a list of yours (not that i ever didnt enjoy them in the past tho) and ALSO this is the first time ive enjoyed a list of yours more than your significant other’s, and i must say i enjoyed this quite a bit more.

now, away from the gratuitious iwb-style ravings and onto the list itself. in melbourne at the mo it is currently quite spring-y, in that we’ve just had some pretty fucking great hot days, but today it’s raining and overcast but not cold and windy like what accompanies shitful rain here in winter. so the start of the list was just perfect. tears in rain wasnt the strongest of openers but it was nice, and the blue sky black death song was pretty cool. i feel like the cunninlynguists song is type of hip-hop song you REALLY like, in that it’s quite a bit different from the typical hip-hop song. air was great. as i aleady mentioned aquemini into protection was boner-inducing. the sade song was quite cool. the Simply Red song was very cool, very cool indeed, quite like it. the Katy Perry song was very un-Katy Perry in that I didnt feel her in screaming “HERES MY LATEST UPBEAT POP SONG” into my ears. it was good. Hearts on Cut Copy, Tycho, Memory Tapes was great.

From RAC on you began to lose me a little bit, I wasn’t big on anything from there through to The Pillows (aside from Japandroids), but once Dismemberment Plan came on it was absolutely terrific from then on out. I especially loved it from Moby onwards. The drumming in Southside reminded me A LOT of Larry’s drumming from a U2 song from any of the 90s albums... can’t remember which one and not looking it up right now. All this stuff worked very well, I actually thought you probably could have slipped in a song from Pop seamlessly around Primitive/Moby/Eels. My only slight criticism is that the music in the Eels song didn’t quiiiiiite match with the songs around it, but that’s really pretty minor, and the lyrics were great. And now I know 3000 and Mark Oliver have something in common - they both have a song where they say “I’m the shit” over and over. Grounded is obviously sensational, and Damage and Kangaroo, both songs by bands I haven’t check out, was an astonishing closing duo. So! great job, and I think I might even listen to it again before sending in my rankings, pay a bit more attention to the start and the middle.

tl;dr -

Ah well, that's what I get for taking so long on this. I'm glad I got it out of my system, though, because now I'm already working on a DI 11 and having a good time with it.

This is proof that people overthink these lists. I would have liked the list considerably less had it ended at this point.

Oh God. I don't think I'm necessarily fucking doomed. Just regular doomed.

Haha, thanks. I'm completely sober, just bored at work. And I had a coffee today, and for some reason I am very sensitive to coffee, so maybe that's why the post is a bit silly.

I get that Ashley gets pegged as the new wave/60s folk chick, but yeah, I wouldn't call her tastes narrow at all.

iYup, commenting on her last.fm:

The strangest thing here is iYup using a smiley.
