Ridiculous topic of course...but Dead Flowers always does it for me. Picking a song that doesn't even feature Brian Jones is naturally absurd to begin with.

I don't know. There were a lot of examples of straight-up lazy writing/editing/directing this season. Chris knocks up and marries someone we've never seen before? AJ instantly becomes responsible? Lazy. Lazy writing? Chris has struggled with his junkie impulsiveness and desire to marry/have children...

if you want a gimmick filled, cliff-hanger ending season finale then go watch CSI, or ER or some other tired network drama. Sopranos is so much better than anything else on tv that it is just ridiculous to judge it by the same standards. I love that they didn't end this season with anything big happ...

Sundown is a fantastic song. I could only dream of something that soulful being a hit on pop radio today. Think about it...

Summer in the City by Lovin' Spoonful in the US Yellow Submarine/Elanor Rigby Beatles in the UK I also found out not too long ago that the Beatles themselves passed through my small Michigan town via bus the morning I was born. They were heading to Cleveland from Detroit on their last American tour....

dead

The problem with the Dead isn't the band but the Deadheads, most of whom were just an annoying mess. The band themselves should be admired for their truly nonconformist, DIY attitude. The way they conducted themselves without regard for the conventional business ethic of the music industry was truly...

REM

OVER 30 For me they jumped the shark pretty early, as far back as Document really. They recorded some beautiful songs after that to be sure, but Michael Stipe grew increasingly more unbearable around that time. Those first 4 lp's (and CT ep) have mystery to them. We weren't sure exactly what he was ...

stones

It just occurred to me that they don't even list Tattoo You. My vote for second most underrated record. Despite being mostly a hodgepodge of leftovers, most of it kicks ass. The last really good RS record really.
