Carly Rae Jepsen did not release a single in 2021. Consequently, this is the first year since 2014 that she has not made my yearly best of "Tasty Cutz" playlist. I almost thought about adding her Christmas single from the end of the last year, but that's cheating. It's a testament to her oeuvre:
2020 - This Love Isn't Crazy
2019 - Want You In My Room (Too Much could have also qualified), she also made an appearance singing the great hook on "OMG" by Gryffin
2018 - Party For One
2017 - Cut to the Feeling (also made a guest appearance on Charli XCX's excellent "Backseat."
2016 - Higher
2015 - Run Away With Me

Hopefully we'll hear from you in 2022 CRJ.
I don't understand any of this. Maybe that KISS listening has given you brain STDs.
I can assume that you join me in not knowing a single one of these songs?

On their own the words all make sense but when put together into what seem to be properly formed sentences they lose all meaning.

I feel confident I have never heard nor know any of these songs.

This probably doesn't help my case, but: https://clashcity.com/boards/viewtopic. ... 82#p587982
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

You know, I love the Bear Family but selling this as an Elvis Presley record is totally ridiculous and they know it. It's a crappy version of a Sinatra song and Elvis gets to sing one line in this. Are there really completists out there who shout "I want this?"

Perhaps only for the red vinyl.

I think I'll get a bag of these and sell them as Elvis singles.

I don't think I'm familiar with this track, what's the scoop?

I can only assume it's this track (Elvis appears at around 2:45)

Oh, that's actually kinda cool (not to buy as a single, mind). Googling, and this is from the same show, this is a blast:



Seems like a scam to pass anything from this as an Elvis record, tho.

It's referenced in Craig Brown's Beatles book, which is where I saw the photo. Very unsettling.

The album sleeve makes the doll look dark skinned but in pictures I found on the net it looks light skinned. It is well weird.

Also found some comic strips. I had never heard of it until today.
