Charles is the best. Throw him all the business you can.
Wonder how many will leave this event DUI and/or high on something, and thumb their noses at Charleston City Police whose headquarters are right across the street? Or is there a tacit understanding that Riley does not want to do anything to interfere with the Alcohol and Drug Cult (ADC) and the revenue they bring in for the city coffers?
You sound hurt.
It's only pop music, man. Lighten up.
Uhhhhh, mat (with only one t for extra cool points!) catastrophe (I have a hunch --and it's only a hunch-- you have tattoo of your name plastered in big letters somewhere on your scrawny multi-pierced body), it's hardly cribbing from NPR if I become aware that the list even exists from you after I've posted. And, after looking at NPR list, I did notice that 2--and only 2-- of my selections (Jack White and Spiritualized) happened to appear on it. No cribbing, just a coincidence of good taste. Oh, and what you term "pop music" is laughable. Alabama Shakes? Yellow Ostrich? Heartless Bastards? Justin Townes Earle? Slightly Stoopid? The Divine Fits, etc,etc? Not even on a dot on the pop spectrum. For a self-proclaimed "contrarian" who loves "disorder" and "chaos" (oh my what a rebel) you're about as dangerous as a fart in a wind storm. With all your discord and confusion, try to catch a clue my man.
Mmmm. More pop music!
(ps: cribbing from NPR's list of the best of 2012 is not, in any way, shape, or form, cool)
You gotta be kidding me! This sludge is supposed to be THE BEST of 2012??? Based on the sampling above--what a godawful year for music. Seriously, you found better stuff on your "search for junk" in the city than you have on this list. I thought City Paper was somewhat "cutting edge" but I was sorely mistaken. Here is only a partial list of the Best Songs of 2012:
1. "Would That Not Be Nice"--The Divine Fits
2. "Sixteen Saltines"--Jack White
3. "You Aint Alone"--Alabama Shakes
4. "Elephant King"--Yellow Ostrich
5. "Stay At Home"--Yellow Ostrich
6. "Caught Me Thinkin"--Bahamas
7. "Mean to Me"--Ben Kweller
8. "Parted Ways"--Heartless Bastards
9. "The House That Heaven Built"--Japandroids
10. "Unfortunately Anna"--Justin Townes Earle
11. "Submarines"--The Lumineers
12. "Primitive Girl"--M. Ward
13. "Don't Stop"--Slightly Stoopid
14. "Hey Jane"--Spritualized
15. "Brenda"--Todd Snider
17. "Say for Certain"--Generationalists
18. "Already Yours" Bahamas
19. "Whistle Clap-Hey"--Lucy &the Cloud People
20. "He Gets Me High"--Dum Dum Girls
2012 wasn't lame, just y'all were.
Amused to learn that "Call Me Maybe" is G, Em, C, and D - over and over and over. Just like "End Of The Line" by the Traveling Wilburys or Neil Young's "Heart of Gold". So, before you talk about how you don't listen to pop music, remember that YOU LISTEN TO POP MUSIC. Have a nice day.
It's all pretty solidly pop music.
Lots of great stuff, no doubt. But I don't think I'd classify any of this as "pop music". Great list regardless!
I am O.S.B. and I greatly appreciate this here !!!! Go and check out everyone !!!!
They also had the #1 ranked song.
Disappointed to see the Turnpike Troubadours and American Aquarium didn't make the list.
This sounds great - I'll be looking for it!
Danny, have you seen GeniusTheMovie.com yet? Wonder what Yoko thinks about it?
I've recently watched LFDH's performances of "I Can't Go For That," first with Meyer Hawthorne and then with Cee-Lo, backed by top-notch bands and Daryl Hall, of course. Both versions killed it... I was sold immediately.
I am delighted to learn you are a "neighbor". Here's hoping we "run" into each other! :) I am a great admirer of LFDH and relish the idea of some of the episodes being conceived/filmed here!!!
Live from Daryl's house is intense, awesome, and one of my favorite shows.
Suddenly cool "again"?? When were they not?
what an asshole...
Oops. Sorry for that. My apologies to She & Him and the Civil Wars, who are definitely not married.
