Ok, even though Perry looks ridiculous in a saraong, the verses in this song always make me want to drive 120mph

I just think they're really fun. It's a shame not so many people seem to know about them in the US. The Spice Girls were huge, why can't these guys be, too? Instead we get stuck with those shitty R&B-flavored girl groups like Pussycat Dolls and Danity Kane.
Three thumbs up from me!

I don't know if you are a drinker or not...but I am and I have found over my experiences that Deadlines and Diets is a really fantastic hangover song.

And, I think it might be too late now, but I agree that they could be big over here in the states. When I used to throw on one of their albums at a party, every girl in attendance would start dancing IMMEDIATELY...without having any knowledge of what the song was or who was singing it. That has got to say something, right?

I was listening to Live Bullet at the gym this morning.

Bob Seger in '77 was one of the best concerts I've ever been to.

I'm a light social drinker, but too old to let myself get hangovers. But I'll keep that in mind, just in case.

He's actually quite underrated now, it seems. He had a run of albums that were very, very good. I obviously don't put him on the same level as Springsteen, but Seger is no slouch. I'll take him over Mellencamp and Petty any day.

I'm still kicking myself for not seeing him at all (and he obviously played Detroit quite a few times) on his last tour. I have friends who saw him and said it was awesome, despite him being in his 60's.

Considering that it was his first tour in over a decade, I wish I had seen him, too. Who knows if he'll go out again...

For me, nothing The New Pornographers have done has matched the awesomeness of 'Letter From An Occupant'.

If I was to make some kind of "all time favorite songs" list, that one would probably show up somewhere on it. Of course, I would be completely unable to make any kind of list like that without putting months and months of thought into it. Screw that.

I really want to like these guys, and I can never bring myself to like them more than just a little. That's my favorite song by them, for sure.

There's just something about the sound of the first two albums that grates on me a bit, and I can't put my finger on it.

How is it? He played a small theatre in Toronto not long ago, and I wanted to go in the worst way, but I couldn't make it the night he played.

I'm in the process of getting the Blue Oyster Cult discography.

You can't get any more cowbell than that.

I think Mistaken For Strangers by The National is one of the best songs I've heard in a long time. I heard it ages ago, but it never sunk in until just now. It's so hypnotic. Probably the best channeling of Ian Curtis I've come across; Paul Banks, eat your heart out.

That one-two punch of Fake Empire/Mistaken at the beginning of Boxer is stunning. I wouldn't say the album as a whole is one of my favorites of 2007 or anything, because it runs together for me towards the halfway mark, but it's extremely coherent and doesn't really have any weak tracks.

In other news, I need to listen to some Liars albums before the Radiohead gig on 5/11. Drums Not Dead is up first...
