'gina lollobrigida' is a party tune, whereas 'is this the life?' is rather overwrought- a bit emo

you emo

I've been trying to think of the name of that band for two days! Thank you!

Grandaddy are SOFA KING boring. I've never got their appeal.

I saw them on a festival once. They're not a crowd pleaser.
I liked that A.M. 180 though. And that's still their only song I know as far as I'm aware.

They're one of my favourite bands ever, and one of my biggest influences. Which is kind of not what this thread is about, but I must stick up for my Grandaddy.

Straight up, I love Elton John. He is excellent and deserves all of his medals.

It's not that I dislike Ween because I have never heard any song other than "Ocean Man" and have no plans to listen to any songs by Ween other than "Ocean Man."



Ha ha Spongebob. This is what all music needs to be. 2 minutes long and awesome.

I am guiltily liking MGMT at the moment for no real reason. I can't explain it. I hate all that current electro stuff, but there's something about MGMT that I'm finding decidedly catchy.
you're just too obscure for me

Chris Montez is in my last.fm top ten for last week. Not even Saga FM plays Chris Montez now, I'd imagine, but I've always had a BBC local radio during formative years-related soft spot for Let's Dance and Call Me.

Um, I really like Golden Skans by The Klaxons. I'm very sorry.

I like several songs by the Klaxons. They have quite a few good songs, I think.

I really liked that song Kiss Me by Sixpence None The Richer when it came out. It ain't all that different from the average Sarah single if you ask me.

It might be about Jesus, though.

It's about a girl who wants Jesus to kiss her?

You hear enough Jesusey music and everything become a metaphor.
