a very fine song by outkast.
Close enough tho.
an inspired and, at the time, strange track but the best of the decade? 'Hey Ya' is better but I think I got more annoyed with it eventually. Overplay and whatnot
I liked the heavy remix that they played on XFM about once every 15 minutes back in the day.
At least it is in my book
I see it won the Pitchfork thing. Should have been All My Friends but still a fine choice.
Also B.O.B > Hey Yeah
the rest of their top 20 all made sense.
I use to play it all the time when it came out it was an anthem at the local rock/metal disco when I was a kid.
I love it so much. I used to play it on repeat while getting ready to leave the house for an evening out.
But smacks of purposefully being a bit different. Its not even Outkast's best song of the decade.
more commonly known as a Vibrator. I remember seeing one once.
Totally destroys what was otherwise a very good top 20. Even switch it around with All My Friends and it would be, like, satisfactory. But no. Fail. And I like Outkast.
and the votes get collated?
a democratic process. maybe they should have asked luis carruthers and harman kardon what the best 500 songs were and published that instead.
i reckon it was a better decision to publish the pitchfork writers list. maybe that's just me though.
I would've set them straight.
you tell 'em.
all my friends and paper planes are both pretty rubbish.
and stankonia all the time and one time dave clarke played bob at bugged out and that was fun.
it's a fantastic record that can be played at techno, metal and rap disco's.
a wetherspoon pub in Reading.
thoughts for best songs on Stankonia?
1. Humble Mumble
2. Ms Jackson
3. Gasoline Dreams
4. So Fresh So Clean
I'd get Spaghetti Junction in there somewhere.
Cannot believe no one has made that joke yet. Maybe because it's awful?
but a great song. I'd have given it to All My Friends.
