Random Musical Musings

You know when you're listening to a song and a thought pops into your head that you'd quite like to share with the good folks of B&C only it's not really enough of an earth-shattering observation to merit its own thread?

No, just me then? But just on the off-chance that it isn't, here is a thread for posting such random musical musings.

Such as....I Don't Like Mondays is a really bad song, and yet I listen to it repeatedly regardless of its complete lack of musical merit.

Alternatively, one could note that The Cribs are a band who appear to improve with increasing intoxication (the band's intoxication, that is, not the audiences, that would point to a different conclusion altogether) or that The Others are a band whose musical merit is inversely proportional to their ability to play their instruments.

Your turn....

I heard 'Lyla' by Oasis on the radio the other day and thought , "This is possibly one of the worst singles I've ever heard. By any band. Ever."

And I usually kinda like Oasis.

I was listening to the The Cure this afternoon and thought that Pornography would sound nice if it was covered by Radiohead!

I just heard "Lips Like Sugar" by Echo and the Bunnymen and thought it's a very poor representation of Echo's overall work. And to think, some people only know Echo by this song.

You and I actually agree for once.

indra oh my god...

more musings: I know they're fun to hate, but I kinda like the cranberries. their first album is pretty nice, and there are a few songs on their second one that I like too. I get the feeling I'm the only one.

I like a few of the Cranberries songs. I think I'd get tired of them over the course of an album, but a song here and there I don't mind at all.

Oh...whenever I hear the song "See Your Lights" (by The Church, but a MWP Church song) I can't help but think it would be the perfect song to use in advertising cutout bras.

I can't get over how brilliant Elvis Costello's "My Aim Is True" album really is. Very old news to all of you, I'm sure, but I'm just discovering some great classics.

bayernfc, funny thing happened upon reading your Elvis Costello post...a song of his came on the channel I'm listening to. It's not a song off of the album you're referring to (instead the thing says it's from This Year's Model), but that's still kinda weird...

Heh, I don't even own the Bravery's album and I got that, too. Nice one, indra .

I don't mind them, either.

I also discovered one night while listening to the new wave channel that I quite like what I've heard by the Bronski Beat/Communards so far. They've got some rather catchy songs. And the voice on the main singer...whooooooaaaa, talk about high notes....

I have 4 albums of The Cranberries'. They made some enjoyable tunes back in the day.

totally understand you,
for me i always heard his name and knew what he looked like but never his music and when i finally heard it i was blown away. i would have never before imagined that great music was made by mr costello.



same w/ springsteen, i was only familair w/ dancing in the dark & born in the usa and didnt care for either....then somehow i discovered his first cd and listened to it non stop and then got all his cds which are all great


and my confession....



if i was to only judge by the performances on thier concert dvds,
i think springsteen completely kicks U2's ass in concert






damn it im supposed to be going out somewhere

damn blue crack

I don't know who The Church are and have no urge to ever find out.
