I think they suffer from the same thing RHCP suffers from: a poor frontman.

I think the only Beatles song I've enjoyed is Tomorrow Never Knows. Nothing else has appealled. Sure, it makes me a heathen to some people, but that's their problem, not mine. So what that I think Bono singing Help on the JT Tour sounds 1,000x better than the Beatles' original?

I don't like the Stones at all either. Which I don't tell my father, because he's even more of an arsehole about his opinion being the only right opinion than I am!

I think my favorite Beatles track is A Day in the Life. It's the equivalent of Bowie's Space Oddity.

Axver and I are simultaneously listening to each others' lists and doing running diaries about them.

That song caused me a lot of trouble. It's fairly important thematically, but just the way it starts made it hard to fit in anywhere. I think it works acceptably in its spot.

I must admit, as much as some people here will tar and feather me for this, I didn't entirely hate that Streetlight Manifesto song. It was kinda fun and catchy, albeit distracting and perhaps too long. And most importantly, I think it fits in the playlist and makes sense.

Won't Get Fooled Again is a song I already know and quite enjoy.

The Blackfield tune is pretty good.

Back.

Question: If there's two instrumentals and I don't know who performed them, but they're both composed by and attributed to the same person, I can only use one, right?

Wow. That's the highest praise this portion of my list has received.

I can't see it fitting better anywhere else, although it's still rougher than your other transitions.

One of the vocalists is Steven Wilson of Porcupine Tree. The other is Israeli pop star Aviv Geffen.
