Well done, dipshit. You've poisoned all of your music. Bono could record a whole album where 'kneel' or 'soul' is in every lyric and it still wouldn't poison things as much as that worst lyric in recorded history.
I think I put an acoustic version of that track on my list, but it segues well into the next track - maybe you'll appreciate the context.

Hey fellas. Moulin Rouge wasn't that bad.

I don't like this KT Turnstall song much, and the flow and segues would have made more sense without the Killers song between it and Sigur Ros.

At least those are produced similarly to the rest of Achtung Baby. WDIAGW sounds like it is albumless, and poorly produced as well.

I don't like KT Tunstall at all.


Then again, I've really noticed I don't like female vocalists much.

Tom Waits is very strange. I'd never heard a Tom Waits song before just now.

I don't like the guitar, to be honest. Just too much sort of off-kilter shredding, not really melodic in any way. I don't know how to describe it. It just annoys me.

Uh, My Body Is A Cage by The Arcade Fire is missing from Irishteen/Lemonchick's uploads ...

Edit: It seems I didn't download the third part, and some of it would've filled in the gaps. Shit.

Yeah. I listen to the Salome Outtakes more than Achtung Baby so I ignore the bad production.

And now The Police. I'm not really into The Police. Or REM. Or Bruce Springsteen. I wonder if this makes me less of a U2 fan.

Yeah. I told them about that about a week ago. It hasn't been corrected....

I halfway liked that song until some guy sang it to me. Now I can't stand it.

I prefer music with more angryangryness and less weepyweepiness.

But Amy Lee is hot. And there's one spot in the My Immortal video where you can totally see right down her top

I like The Police and Springsteen, but I don't like Radiohead, so my U2 fandom is on a low status level. I'm in the minor leagues of U2 fanicity.

I'm okay with Radiohead. But I really don't like REM at all.
