Well done Cobble!
You’re famous and gave a fair shout out to the forum as well.
Questions weren’t especially difficult, I’ve gotta say!

The Five Guys I’m at has played three stone temple pilots songs in a row for some reason and it’s quickly dawning on me what an atrocious lyricist that guy was.

i'm impressed by anyone who can actually discern more than 15% of what scott weiland was singing in any given stone temple pilots song.

In these weird times, I'm finding some comfort listening to old U2 for the first time in ages.

I like those periods.

Triple J, Australia's biggest youth-focused radio station, just held its Hottest 100 of the decade. I would imagine this is probably the largest people-voted music poll in the world.

I'm not too surprised, but there's not much on that list that I actually like.

King Kunta as the highest placing Kendrick song is a bit random. Great song but I would have expected a dozen others to be the pick.

I tend to bust out JT in particular when I'm sick/depressed/suffering from anxiety and it definitely has a therapeutic effect.

As much as I like reading and discussing album polls, when it comes to individual songs, my interest plummets to nearly nothing.

I also prefer to have some space between my lips and a butthole.

Speaking of THE F'LIPS!, I picked up the Deap Vally/TFL collaboration yesterday at Amoeba, just because I like owning physical copies of my friends' albums. Made the mistake of shopping for more and spent more money than I intended on used CDs aka "dead media":

My Morning Jacket - At Dawn ($8) used to own this but it was stolen out of my car, this edition has the bonus disc of demos. Cool handwritten booklet so I wanted to own a copy again
The Sundays - Static & Silence ($4) was recently listening to their great album Blind and remembered I never even heard their third album
Bruce Springsteen - The River ($8) I own the old CD but wanted a copy of the remastered discs. At one point thought I would get a used copy of the big boxed set, but as much as I love this album I just didn't feel like plunking down $80 for it
Saint Etienne - It Takes A Mess of Help To Stand Alone ($4) outtakes/b-sides collection, slowly filling in the gaps of their extensive discography
Miles Davis - Kind of Blue ($7) As with the above Bruce album, I already owned an older Columbia CD, but this album really deserved to be heard in better quality, so I picked up the remaster. They had a bunch of used copies all priced at $8 but I kept digging and looked in the overstock shelf underneath and voila, found one for $1 cheaper. #NSW

The Unforgettable Fire did the trick for me. Not an uplifting album, but I like its meditative qualities - and it has helped me cope with anxiety.

It appears that Kind of Blue CD was only $5, so I saved $3 by digging deep into the shelves!

Makes me seem only slightly less desperate.

Damn it sounds good on my stereo.

There's nothing quite like the warmth that rushes over me when I listen to a beloved U2 track. I just heard something incredibly lovely about myself from a friend, and I played Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses just now.

And on a whim decided to put on Achtung Baby, and read along with the CD booklet, which I purchased in... bloody hell, 2005 or 2006. A lot of memories, good and bad, come flooding back. I won't say too much as there's little point on here these days, but I'd like to say that it's very nice to have Ultraviolet feel like a new song to me again, after seeing it live in November with my partner. That was very special. "Your live is a lightbulb / hanging over my bed..." very moving.

And then I'd just like to say how fucking good Tryin' to Throw Your Arms Around the World is. Truly a perfect song. One of Bono's best (and funniest) lyrics. Such sweet music, and it captures the liminality of drinking/a hangover so well. I've always thought that it feels like a salve, that song. Which is a remarkable thing to be able to capture in a four-minute song.

I have not been a fan of car seat headrest but I’m liking this new song quite a bit.

Going back to that question about 90s albums from the other day, after revisiting Built to Spill's There's Nothing Wrong with Love, it might be on the list for me.

Random Music Talk CXXVII: Crickets

I know it’s random, but it’s kind of music related and I know there’s fellow Southern California people here that like me growing up listened to KROQ and The Kevin and Bean Show, but yesterday the morning show team was fired:


https://www.dailynews.com/2020/03/18...station-toxic/

What a messed up way to go. At least Kevin went rogue on the last broadcast and called out the radio station execs.
