Best Bit: That delightfully unhinged final verse.
I’ve decided to retire this blog in 10 days time (just after its 1st birthday).
To finish with a bang I’ll be counting down my 10 Fave Songs of All Time. Favourite songs lists are probably the most difficult of all to come up with, because there are just so many to choose from and so many of them have meant so much to me at different points in my life, but I will give it a shot … Hope you enjoy!
Oh, and it’d be great to also hear about your own fave songs of all time, so comment away below 🙂
What’s my opinion on Kings of Leon? Well I’m glad you asked!
I like their old stuff, don’t like their new stuff, and think this middle-era album (‘Because of the Times’) had its moments. I especially like this track from it – mostly because of those really impressive and rather strange scream/squeals.
These guys are one of the long-running stalwarts of the Perth music scene. They seem to have been on the line-up for every major local music festival for the past 20 years or more. They’re probably more known for hard rocking, but in this one where they pulled it back and gave us something really heartfelt – it was incredible.
A great one for parties. Used to love playing it when I was a DJ. The only time it didn’t get a good reaction was at an 18th birthday … and I probably should have seen that coming anyway.
Really sweet song that I found on Triple J Unearthed a few years back.
Where the Wild Things Are was a film that left me unsure of whether I liked it or not. I guess the only thing I could say for sure about it is it’s not great and it’s not terrible.
One thing that I didn’t really like was the soundtrack. It’s like Karen O’s voice is too penetrating – it kind of pulls you out of the movie because the songs don’t feel like they’re just there to serve the film.
The flipside of that, however, is that the soundtrack is really good by itself, as hopefully this highlight will prove.
Johnny Cash had a sharp wit. In this clip he comes across as much like a comedian (a good one) than a country/rock singer.
Was listening to a lot of Pixies yesterday, so here’s their only B-side that I reckon is as good as most of their album tracks.
Epic acoustic track by a guy from a town where I used to live.
