You filthy bastard.
Authority is supposedly grounded in wisdom, but I could see from a very early age that authority was only a system of control and it didn't have any inherent wisdom. I quickly realised that you either became a power or you were crushed

I do love that song, which I managed to be taught by a old dirtbag hippie banjo player before I heard the Pogues version, so in my head it’s always sung in a vaguely Tom Waits-ian voice.

Im gonna do a Hestonian rundown on these songs. Im being careful to just listen and not look at the videos as Ive been known to be swayed by a pretty face and there are a lot of them in this round.
Everyone should do the Hestonian rundown if they get the chance. By the way, that's the name of my solo album/project if I ever make one.

Yes, pretty girls can convince, see ABBA.
Finally squeezed them all in. I'd be ok with almost half of them. They basically fall into 3 categories of like it, indifferent, hate it. Fewer fall into the last category than you might expect

It came on the radio today. Which is the main problem I have with it. It's on the radio every day. Really good song though.

Mark them like I did. That's what I'm gonna do now.

You've changed, man. It used to be about hating the music. :disshame:

Sorry to be negative in some cases but just throwing out an honest opinion after two or three plays...

Love and Affection - 9/10 - Absolute classic from Joan
Can the Can - 8/10 - Love Suzi, shame she never had many hits in her homeland
Zombie - 3/10 - I love "Linger" but this song always irritated me. Too yodelly
Malibu - 6/10 - Just sounds like ordinary indie/pop to me even after 3 plays
It's Oh So Quiet - 9/10 - This is how to do quirky right. A wondrous creation
The Agenda - 5/10 - Ok, but not pulling up any trees for me
Asking For It - 5/10 - This my first time listening to Hole, and I have to admit, I'm not a fan
SOS - 10/10 - On another level
Criminal - 7/10 - I thought this was ELO when it started, good track
Repetition - 6.5/10 - Passed me by a bit at first but has a bit of charm
Cities In Dust - 6/10 - They had much better, hopefully one of them will make the album
The Emperor's New Clothes - 7.5/10 - This is restrained and nice
Let Me Know - 6/10 - Too blatantly pop for me
Future People - 5/10 - Too mad for me
Walk Like An Egyptian - 8/10 - Cheesy as fuck but some great lyrics in the verses
Destination Unknown - 7/10 - I really like this
I'm a Man You Don't Meet Every Day - 10/10 - Just one of those perfect songs and what a vocal. That Irish lilt is invigorating

Joan Armatrading - Great voice the song just doesn't do much for me. 6/10

Suzi Quatro - Im not really familiar with her music. She's having fun and all but I gotta believe she has better songs than this. Probably was more fun to experience it live than listening to it on the computer. 5/10

Cranberries - Never much listened to them. Another great voice, good song. 6.5/10

Hole - Another band I haven't given any time to, a decent pop song I guess. 5/10

Bjork - Ive always liked her more in theory than in practice. I like this when it gets big band jazzy. 7/10

RV - I nominated it so yeah I like it. 7.5

Hole - Im having a hard time separating a person who I dont care for from her music. I prefer this to the previous Hole nomination. 5.5/10

ABBA - I know like 3 songs of theirs. Fernando, DQ and something else maybe. The chorus is the best part of the song. Ultimately the delivery/style/production doesn't really work for me. I will say I liked it more than I expected. 6/10

Fiona Apple - the 90s are back again. I know her name but not her music. Much to my surprise I actually like this song. 6.5/10

AuPairs - Never really listened to them before, this song just isn't my speed. 5/10

Siouxsie - not real familiar with her catalog either. I like it. 6/10

Sinead - I prefer her first album to her 2nd. Love her voice and still have a soft spot for her. Her descent into madness is hard to watch. 7/10

Roisin Murphy - Fine voice but the music is not at all my speed 3/10

Alabama Shakes - I never heard them before either. I wrongly presumed they were a Hootie-esque protege band like Lady White Power. They aren't but the song doesn't move me. 4/10

Bangles - you know it, you love it. Im not a huge fan but a fine pop song. 6.5/10

Missing Persons - this is just generic 80s music to me and my love for 80s synth pop is legendary. 3/10

Cait/Pogues - LOVE LOVE LOVE her voice and this song. 9/10
