guilty pleasure!


#89

oh, but that video is god awful. wtf?


#90

Vital distinction – thanks!

Also a big muchas gracias for Big Head Todd – that one had completely gone under my radar (but not anymore).

And about Dire Straits – truly essential stuff in this thread. I play the Money for Nothing collection from time to time (for some reason I do not like “Telegraph Road” that much anymore, though). First I was gonna post “Brothers in Arms” but decided to go for this smoker (awesome video too) – not hard to tell why Dylan wanted Knopfler for Infidels:

Yeah, commercials can taint a lot of great music.

And when we are on the topic of trucks, I have to admit that I have a soft spot for trucker songs.


#93

Just hit me that the Candlebox song I posted has pretty much the same theme as the Dexter Freebish song … oh the bitterness of self-absorbed young men.


#94

Love this story from Todd Snider’s book where he double-backs on back-talking Garth.

#96

We lose our shit to this at work. All the intercoms, much banging and singing along.


#97

You GOTTA get down on Friday …. Or as we call it, Fri-YAY yo!

I had never actually heard this but was aware it was known as a truly awful song. I gave it a listen today and it’s way better than I thought.

I think she’s kind of aware it is cheesy and corny, too. I don’t think she’s under any impression she’s the next Joni Mitchell.

I think it’s glorious in a silly, ridiculous way.


#99

The rest of that album is a bit shit though, isn’t it?

I just realized that all the songs in here would make a solid playlist.


#100

Moon Over Bourbon Street? Consider Me Gone? Shadows in the Rain? I think they’re solid. Children’s Crusade and Russians are cringeworthy though.


#101

I loved that album and I hate Sting so it’s hard to admit.
