"How I Learned to Love the Bootboys" over "Now I'm A Cowboy"? That is some sort of insane crazy talk.
@lbf and, Hello, lbf! We Wave Pictures fans are few in number.
@lbf Who can remember all the Wave Pictures songs? Besides, this has a comma. And it is great.
Most of the Doors stuff was utterly ridiculous, but they could pull off a decent Sunset Strip garage tune early on. I still think this is the best argument for them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zesUGSFsjk
@Gef the Talking Mongoose Mine was "Storytelling."
Camera Obscura cancelled some time ago, sadly.
@ComradePsmith Although "December's Children" isn't really a proper album, it should be ranked because it's the only one with "Blue Turns to Grey" on it.
People who rank "Satanic Majesties" at 19 are the same sort of people who don't want the Monkees in the rock and roll hall of fame.
Wasn't "Can't Get You Out of my Head" considered somewhat innovative for its use of minor chords in a big pop song? I think I remember Paul Morley yammering on about something to that effect.
Anyway, I'll go with the "It's because of 'Can't Get You Out of my Head'" theory.
@ComradePsmith "But it’s more efficient to refer to Ian Svenonius’s 2006 book The Psychic Soviet, an overlooked work of genius which I fear is fully understood and appreciated only by its author—the former frontman of Nation of Ulysses and The Make-Up and singer for Chain and the Gang—and me."
