Fleetwood Mac - Dreams.

One of my two new years resolutions is to listen to Fleetwood Mac more because Rumours is a killer. Curious as to whether their position as essentially the antithesis to punk rock when it was released in 1977 makes it more punk rock to enjoy Fleetwood Mac now. I mean, less of them are in butter/insurance adverts, at least. Also: imagine if you could get butter insurance.

I only ever listen to Rumours to be honest, but that’s enough for me.  I absolutely love it.

The Cure - Lullaby.

(reblogged from guifelipe)

Been in the mood for this song ever since I heard it on TV last night. Sat in the dark listening to The Cure, seems like a bit of a stupid cliché or something. But whatever, deal with it.

I’m weird about The Cure. I get that they’re a great band but at the same time I feel they’re a little overrated and not quite as great as a lot of people think. I can never really sit through a whole album, either, but I do love to stick on a single or two every now and again. This is a good one.

Woah woah woah!

Overrated? Pssh nahh.  Stick on Three Imaginary Boys/Disintegration and tell me it’s not amazing.

“Linger” - The Cranberries





Now there’s a story.

Okay Portland, we really need to this musician his trumpet back.  Seriously.  Go!

the fucker who stole this will pay.

Oh this is so sad.  Come on Portland folks, get on this!

The 90s were rife with musician-coined genres. Riot grrrl was the name of a 1991 fanzine put together by four of that music’s key players: Allison Wolfe and Molly Neuman of Bratmobile; Kathleen Hanna and Tobi Vail of Bikini Kill. Illbient was coined in 1994 by DJ Olive, of the trio We, to describe a multimedia presentation to a journalist in Brooklyn. “Some older man who said he was a journalist asked me if this was ambient music,” Olive says, “and I blurted out as a joke, ‘Nope, this is illbient.’ We all had a laugh about it.” And in 1996, producers Ed Rush and Trace of the No U Turn label minted the phrase techstep to describe their blaring, dense, hard-as-hell style of drum and bass.

This is pretty interesting.

The All-American Rejects - Swing, Swing.

(reblogged from randomchannelsurfing)

And whilst we’re on the subject of nauseatingly cheesy yet catchy as hell pop punk songs that, let’s face it, were fun eight years ago, you really can’t forget this belter of a choon.

Did you think that I would cry
On the phone?
Do you know what it feels like
Being alone?
I’ll find someone new!

Swing, swing, swing, 
From the tangles of
My heart is crushed 
By a former love.
Can you help me find a way
To carry on again?

They don’t make ‘em like they used to!

I also love this song.  Nice one Rob!

Something Corporate - Punk Rock Princess.

(reblogged from lifeinmovment)

Perhaps the most sickeningly cheesy piano-based pop punk song of all time. I think that’s why I love it. I’ve seriously not listened to this song in years, and there’s probably a good reason for that.

You could tell me why you just don’t fit in,
And how you’re gonna be something.
If I could be your first real heartache,
I would do it over again.
If you could be my punk rock princess,
I would be your heroine.

This joint: Massive Attack on the London riots




“In context with the complicit support of the government, the banks looted the nation’s wealth while destroying countless small businesses and brought the whole economy to its knees in a covert, clean manner, rather like organised crime. Our reaction was to march and wave banners and then bail them out. These kids would have to riot and steal every night for a year to run up a bill equivalent to the value of the non-paid tax big business has ‘avoided’ out of the economy this year alone. They may not articulate their grievances like the politicians that condemn them, but this is absolutely political. As for the ‘mindless violence’, is there anything more mindless than the British taxpayer quietly paying back the debts of others while contributing bullets to conflicts that we have absolutely no understanding of? It’s mad, sad and scary when we have to take to the streets to defend our homes and businesses from angry, thieving kids, but where are the police and what justice is ever done when the mob is dressed in pin-stripe?” - Massive Attack

One of my favorite musicians with an opinion on the riots.

Aw, preach.

I saw this yesterday and was gonna post it! Uh-may-zing.

This is my last.fm top artists from the last three months as it stood just now.

Things we can deduce from this list:

1. I am a mosher.

2. The Cure are, clearly, never shifting.

3. I listen to Britney Spears on the bus.

Eclecticlolz.  Do you remember when last.fm first started up, and it was all “LOOK AT MY WIDE RANGE OF MUSIC I’M SO ECLECTIC LOVE ME LOVE ME”.  My 18-year-old self would bloody love this list for those purposes.
