The [Ninja Turtles] henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady have hijacked the musical genres for us just like the Lone Ranger hijacked the William Tell Overture for our parents.

Formula 304: Music Posting

Just to dig that finger a little further into your ear. There are 12 because I am 20% more dedicated than everyone else. I am not a great music reviewer. In fact, I suck at it. I am not teh l4m3 who will natter on about subtleties and shiznit while using words like "infuse", "spare", "timeless", "hint", "choral" and "frothy". Neither am I fulsome who uses words like "wall", "of", "sound", "swelling", "mix" and "amazing". I am not even close to the Uncanny Canadian and his use of words like "mature", "bio" and even "film".

Full Posting.

1: Johnny Cash "Wayfaring Stranger"
2: Johnny Cash "Bonanza"
3: Johnny Cash "I See a Darkness"
4: Johnny Cash "The Wall"
5: Thievery Corporation "From Creation"
6: Paul Van Dyk "My World"
7: The Fiery Furnaces "Wolf Notes"
8: Midlake "Bandits"
9: The New Pornographers "The Laws Have Changes"
10: The Police "Be My Girl/Sally"
11: The Lovemakers "Runaway"
12: Lamb (via The K&D Sessions "Trans Fatty Acid"

Let's see hear. Windows Media Player's shuffle function sucks. I have five Johnny Cash cds on my work computer and it pretty much only plays these songs. I have three Thievery Corporation albums on there as well and it only plays maybe three songs by them, but I have two discs of Paul Van Dyk on my computer and a wide group of those songs are played almost every other selection. The Fiery Furnaces only have one aldum in my digital residence so far, but it gets enough air time that I still enjoy them without getting sick of them. Midlake and The New Pornographers come courtesy of either fluxblog, red blondehead or aurgasm. The Police will never leave my ears. I can say without equivocation that The Police are distinctly unsuitable for kareoke. The Lovemakers are in the same boat as The Fiery Furnaces with one album that I am trying not to wear out. I enjoy them a whole bunch. Lamb is good, but I don't know how much of that is due to Kruder and Dorfmeister. The K&D Sessions is a great double album and everyone should go out and purchase. I'll wait. These guys are from my home town, in a manner of speaking. The manner of speaking that is often referred to as lieing.

One last thing: Remember that Eleanor Friedberger and Lisa Light have been claimed by me in the Great Blogger Music Hottie Divvy-Up. So back the hell off.

don't let those people tell you how to appreciate art.

Although, appreciating art because it's by attractive ladies is what led us to Shakira, so let's try to avoid that alright?
