    I hate when I find a band I missed out on.
    When I was 16 I liked Dead Kennedys, Black Flag and Crass. The band I missed out on was Sub-Humans. I had heard of them but in the New Wave world I lived in 1984 the Record stores carried very little anarchist music. I did get a few Crass albums but I didn’t get much else. Now I stream their stuff and it’s a little bittersweet. Well better than never I guess. 

    As for streamlining I’m listening to The Evens a band I just now found out. Yikes I always thought I was tuned in to stuff. Anyway it’s the guy from Minor Threat and Fugazi plus his Wife who has been a couple bands.
    Nice! I dig the Evens. A buddy of mine is a HUGE McKaye guy and turned me onto them a ways back. I think my favorite tune is All These Governors. Warble Factor is a great one too. I actually caught the end of their Coachella set whichever year it was that had had Radiohead and the Pixies (we were super bummed that they were playing so early and we ran late getting there). Good stuff. McKaye is awesome.

    @cdrive I ride so hard for "I'm An Amendment to Be." It's been years and I can still sing the whole thing off the top of my head. Totally genius.

    @Murderbear I love the Mr. Kite version on Love. The whole endeavor would have been worth it just for that mash up. Even if everything else sucked (which it totally didn't) it still would have been a success for simply delivering that tune alone. I really dig the Within You/Without You-Tomorrow Never Knows one too. 
    Nice list man. Great ones. I think I mentioned it above, but that's what I love about the Beatles and this question. I don't think we cross over at all, but I love all of those songs. They were so damned good. I honestly think I could make a top 30 and feel great about every pick. Maybe 50, but I feel like the tracks might start to get a tiny bit "less special/worthy of being on a 'top' list" at the end. For what it's worth mine (for today at least) is:

    I'm Only Sleeping
    Dig a Pony
    A Day in the Life
    All I Gotta Do
    If I Fell

    Here Comes the Sun might be the best technical example of a pop song ever written, the whole package of it, but it feels a little overplayed in my mind lately so it misses the cut today, but I feel like that caveat is needed. Respect to George!

    That Garden State soundtrack is legit. I'll always remember it fondly as the album that gave me the one Coldplay song that I really like. I already knew about the Shins at that point in time, but I was all in at the point in the movie when she said that they would change his life. I would never have said that particular statement, but I loved that record to that extent at the time. Caring is Creepy is one of my all time favorite album openers. Also, Nick Drake (one of my favorite tracks of his) and S&G. That Iron and Wine cover of the Postal Service is really nice.There is just some amazing stuff on there.

    EDIT: I just saw that Johnny Clegg died. Bummer. He was a fixture in my household growing up for a spell. He was good. Stuff feels a little dated now, but the nostalgic pull is still there. If memory serves he also did a lot of good activist work. RIP.

    Hi-five dude.  Same on Don't Panic being the 1 Cold Play song I still really like.  We had Parachutes in '00 but every song wore off except that one.  I still occasionally play that intro riff when tuning up on acoustic cause I love the chop in that Fmaj7 chord.  That movie was so good.  And Oh Inverted World got heavy run from me back in the day. Know Your Onion, New Slang, and Pressed in a Book were my jams, but the whole album was great start to finish. Know Your Onion lyrics were a big deal for me during that time. I think I was just really really stressed at the time as a young adult and the whole “when they’re parking their cars on your chest at least you got a view of the summer sky” kinda helped me keep the ol’ chin up.

    Hi-five right back! I love that tune and the riff is great. My Coldplay experience seems pretty similar, though it was more about scattered tracks than a record. My wife liked them a bit early on in our relationship and some songs would grab me a little, but Don't Panic seems to be the only one with lasting power.

    Man, Oh Inverted World is a top 10er for me. I don't listen to it much these days because I listened to it SO much in my 20s, but when I do get a whim and dive in it still holds up greatly. I love the line from Know Your Onion (fantastic line and I know what you mean), and I totally love that you highlighted Pressed in a Book which I feel is so often overlooked. That was actually the first Shins tune I heard when a buddy of mine put it on a mix tape that he made me. It was one of those "who the fuck is this and how quick can I get to the record store" types of moments. That tune is such a hook. I'm still pretty mad at Mercer (as much as you can be at someone you don't know) for pulling the whole "fire the band and start over" thing. I feel a little justified because of an interview that he gave where he came out super pretentious and "above what they were doing-like." Anyways, those first 4 records (including the Flake Music one) were special. If you think about it, it's kind of like a mini-Pavement arc. Westing to Flake, Slanted is to Inverted, kind of fuse Wowee Zowee and Crooked Rain to get Chutes too Narrow, (skipping Brighten the Corners because it fucks up my analogy) and Terror Twilight to Wincing the Night Away. That band was special and I hate what they became. Just wring out all the magic and create slightly above average indie pop. Meh.

    EDIT: Also, I never heard the Catastrophist (actually wasn't aware that it existed until now). Hot Coffee is groovy as hell, and I dig that bridge where it gets darker and you get that little Sonic Youth-y jangle. Then the hits to get back in. Man, this track is f'n great! Hell yeah!

  • Black Star is soundtracking my Friday afternoon quite effectively. Best alliance in hip hop (why-oh).

    I thought about putting this question to the guys on Friday but I want the music lover's opinion! I had, in my opinion, a brilliant thought today:

    Are Parrotheads just Caribbean Juggalos?

    If 30 Rock taught me anything in its 7 season run, it's this: The answer to your question is yes.

    In fact, I kind of wish I would come across a gaggle of Parrotheads solely to say "shut up, Irie Juggalos."

    Wait a second - just 2 weeks ago I posted here that I was listening to Margaritaville, so honestly I'm feeling kind of attacked right now.

    Also, you guys are disparaging Jimmy Buffet on National Tequila Day no less!  There should at least for today be what Pirate-people call a "Parley".

    I believe there is a distinction here. Enjoy Buffet's tunes and margaritas but don't join the cult dude. Much like the way you can enjoy Top Gun or Magnolia or Cocktail, but don't neal before Xenu, bro! For what it's worth, I've lamented for my missing shaker of salt many a time.

    While drunk dialing the local radio station in 1988 I won Buffet tickets. He put on a great show and his fans seemed nice. Deadheads on the other hand, yikes. 
    On a side note his bar in Vegas is a rip. 10 bucks for a warm beer. Domestic beer.

  • Never listened to much Neil Diamond other than Sweet Caroline, but I've had this stuck in my head since I saw Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. It's a real jam.

    I have a lot of Neil Diamond’s stuff but that song is one I never listened too for some unknown reason but now it is at the top of the playlist.  Damn you Trentino!
    every movie he has got at least one that gets in my head. My favorite so far is Baby It’s You as covered by Smith, off the Death Proof soundtrack.

    That's another good one. He really knows how to pull gems out of the back catalogue of history.
  • "Highway to the calzone-zone!" (Ben Wyatt saying that has been stuck in my head all day, weird.)

    Anyhoo, good revisits today. Some Tribe Called Quest, then Neutral Milk Hotel, and now A.C. Newman's Slow Wonder. That record really should be a much bigger deal than it is. Way better than anything the New Pornographers put out (no disrespect to NP, who I do like).

    I went and bought one of those CD things yesterday. I got the new Batushka album. I’m not big fan of death metal but I like some bands. This band uses elements of Russian Orthodox Church as part of their sound scape. The music isn’t for the people who get offended. Anyway there has been some drama with the members of this band. The review on this album was ok on Banger. It’s definitely a moody kind of thing but I find it kinda relaxing to just let the music just play and not think about it too much. I’m trying to find the other members work but there is a language thing and I haven’t heard it yet.
