I should finish listening to that album, but it should also make me want to listen to it, I reckon. SSLYBY, AotY!

We have threads for random movie, TV, and sports thoughts, but not music. So, I’ll use this.

Quote from: From A.V. Club
I would listen to “California Gurls” every time I needed a quick pick-me-up, which was fairly often. I could claim I only enjoy the song ironically, but that’s just not the case. I genuinely love that song, however ephemeral or silly it might be.
Finally, some backup. Although I've never claimed ironic appreciation, I keep it real that way.  8)

I've reached the point where they are the same.  My constant ironic distance makes all you people tolerable.

As for Green, "Get Up" shouldn't be there. It was a single but it hardly charted and it's pretty annoying. "Stand" is annoying too, but it was a hit so it makes sense.

Lack of "E-Bow" is strange, it's a good song and I remember the video getting a lot of play.

I'd swapout "Sidewinder" for "Drive", "Drive" is a better song and it was a bigger hit.

They went with the two Reckoning singles, but "Harborcoat" and "7 Chinese Bros" are the better songs.

There was always this push by critics to canonize "At My Most Beautiful" (we get it, Buck and Mills like Pet Sounds) so its inclusion is no surprise, but I always preferred "Daysleeper" and "Lotus" as far as the Up singles go.

Not that any of this matters.  :)
