Man In The Mirror by Michael Jackson is still a sublime gospel-flavoured pop song. That man make great songs!

That is all, thank you.
Where the hell have you been? I went to see The Neverending White Lights (Canadian Band) last weekend and Rob Dickinson from The Catherine Wheel opened up for them.

He played an entire acoustic set with versions of Heal, Crank, Black Metallic and I Want To Touch You, which were awesome. I got to meet him afterwards as well, very cool experience…

I still listen to Thriller, Bad and Dangerous every now and then.

I guess it's not nice to take potshots at someone in your own age group.

People in glass houses and all that.

I'm pretty sure that Pitchfork is Scandinavian for ass-hat but they have some info on the new Hold Steady album....

"A great American philosopher named D. Boon once said 'our band could be your life.' I think that is true. But 'your life could be our band' is also a true statement. I know this because we have lived it. These are our lives. These are your lives. This is our fourth record. Stay Positive."

^ That's what Craig Finn, lead singer and lyricist for the Hold Steady, has to say. Goddam, what a great quote.

And here's the tracklist:

Stay Positive:

01 Constructive Summer
02 Sequestered in Memphis
03 One for the Cutters
04 Navy Sheets
05 Lord, I'm Discouraged
06 Yeah Sapphire
07 Both Crosses
08 Stay Positive
09 Magazines
10 Joke About Jamaica
11 Slapped Actress

I can't wait to hear this. Also, if you get the chance to see them live....do it. If the stars align and the beer is cold, a Hold Steady concert might just save your life.

This deserves its own thread.

Actually, that's the negative thing about this thread. Lots of stuff more people should know about or may have resulted in more responses in other threads.

If you don't read Random, you don't deserve to know.

I'm not so sure about that. If Hold Steady had their own thread, I may not have even bothered since I know nothing about them. But if it is talked about in a general music discussion such as this one, there's a lot more probability I'll at least read it.

Alright, BVS, let's see that Use Your Illusion single-disc. Must be less than 80 minutes.

For the record, here's mine again:

Side One
-----------
Double Talkin' Jive
You Could Be Mine
Yesterdays
Don't Cry
14 Years
Breakdown
Locomotive

Side Two
-----------
Civil War
Dust 'n' Bones
Pefect Crime
Bad Obsession
You Ain't The First
So Fine
Estranged
My World (bonus hidden track)


and remember, November Rain gets released as a stand-alone single a la Hey Jude.

So just how bad is it?

(I have a link to a download, but I probably won't get around to listening to it for at least a few days.)

Well if you don't like Tom Waits, you probably won't like it.

I think it's great. Pretty far from mainstream. And her voice doesn't sound at all what you'd expect, aside from being low.

If you want to see the video for one of the songs, it's here:
