Re: Whitney Houston beats Bobby Brown to Death

It's sad someone died. But I miss the days when a woman could sing a high note and not make a big deal about it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gS-F4rfU4ns Whitney Houston, along with a few others, is responsible for ushering in that godawful showboat singing that simply won't go away. I can't forgi...

Re: Cover songs better than the original

I guess it's been back a while, but welcome back, GloNo! Anyway, I was just listening to Long Player by the Faces. I'd say their cover of Maybe I'm Amazed is better than McCartney's. Not a huge fan of Rollins Band (at all) but his cover of Pink Fairies Do It pretty much rules. Controversial, but Sio...

I love the Scharpling & Wurster stuff! There's also the Best Show on WFMU on Tuesday nights from 8-11 (Central), which is where all of these bits come from. Took me a few listens to get into it just because it's so long and rambling and it takes a while to get the inside jokes, recognize the reg...

Conspiracy of Owls (aka The GO)

I know there are a few fans of The GO here and just wanted to point said fans to the new album by Conspiracy of Owls. It's the three original members of The Go, plus 2 keyboards and 2 more guitars. If you don't feel like doing the math, that's 7 people!) So, yeah, with all of those guys it's a bit m...

I love his earlier stuff, too. Scott 4 my favorite by a long shot. It contains "Duchess," which is one of my favorite songs ever, and far and away my "most listened to" on iTunes. Neko Case did a good job covering it on her first album, though it doesn't come close to the orignin...

Eh.

I really liked the singles--"Hellohole Ratrace" and "Lust for Life" (not an Iggy Pop cover). The rest of the album is fine. Totally listenable and sort of catchy, but nothing else holds up to the two singles.

It's funny you mentioned his autobiography--I placed the order for it last night! This thread reminded me that it existed.

(And I'm at work, too. Just don't particularly care for my job at the moment. Choosing 20 of my favorite Fall jams is a much more enjoyable task.)
