He earns my respect for the bit between 1:20 and 2:30
covers songs, shifts copies. So neither of the above necessarily
when you get popular, because everyone just slags you off. Or else, you have the media following you around so whereas before you got to IMAGINE the person was cool behind the scenes (eg. Beth Ditto / Amy Winehouse), you then see them on TV being a dick.
Ronson as a person doesn't bother me. I think he's a very good producer too. Do I think he has any right to be as popular as he is?
Probably yes, because people have no imagination and think this is revolutionary stuff. It doesn't float my boat (and his choice of vocalists is a bit sketchy) but I can totally see why everyone loves him.
So to summarise: He's alright, but I wouldn't buy any of his records or shit
I've seen some backlash (for want of a better word) on here. Never really had a problem with him myself, I don't buy his record(s), seen him live or on tv.
Skip to the end...
I recently had my hair cut, apparently it's alot like his and i'm very laid back sort of guy.
My friend said to me over beers that I now remind him of Ronson becuase he's cool.
Can I take this as a compliment?
that video gives the impression that he plays all the guitars and drums, whilst before i thought he was just a guitarist
but really, a mark ronson record is one where he's employed everyone, isn't it?
i mean, he doesn't do the arrangements. well maybe he does some of them, but at the brit awards he thanked his arrangers. maybe he just means people who take his "ba ba baaaas" and turn them into horn scores.
i doubt he does anything without lots of engineers helping. he doesn't write the songs and doesn't sing them...
i mean, all that above is just foundless blathering, and i'm not saying he's shit or doesn't do anything BUT
1) he's a very odd example of a pop star
2) if anyone does know exactly what he does, please let me know
as someone told me he was a classically trained pianist, come DJ, come Dave Grohl.
From my understanding is that he's the kind of guy who 'thinks' he can do everything, when really there's loads of people behind him who are 'yes' men whilst tweaking the arrangements to make it sound better.
looking "mighty fine" in this I must say, aprt form that I still say street sweeper should piss on them in a "smiling at strangers on trains"-esque move
what's that got to do with pissing?
I was reffering to the pissing style used by the tramp in the video.
i've never seen that video. i guess cos the video for breaking the back is on a train, it didnt occur to me to ever find it
video that was put with the same song from, Exit music: Song For Radioheads, is better IMHO
quite a clever idea for the video. Not too sure about the song though. He earns massive negative points for the Smiths cover.
"At the same time, visits to his father back in England would fuel a passion for cack horns."
Someone's been up to some mischief, eh?
I quite like the video.
I quite like that cover myself.
facilitating covers node.
I heard his Ryan Adams cover before I even knew who he was.
I probably shouldn't admit to quite liking it, hmm.
the video then...didn't there used to be one with a cartoon girl moving across buildings, walls etc.?
is, from when it was first released a couple of years ago:

Ronson had to get Radiohead's legal blessing for this (otherwise they could sue him). In fact they're probably earning royalties from this (and not complaining for that matter).
So to all the haters, if Radiohead themselves are happy with this then what does it matter what anyone else thinks.
He won a brit award didn't he?
+ 1'000'000 indie points for me. :)
But I havent really been keen on anything else.
As for outside arrangement help, I wouldn'tbe surprised if that was true
Also, why did he shave "here comes the fuzz" into his head?
