i mean it's not close is it.
for starters punk rockers didn't wear flowers in there hair you fucking mongoloid
it just came into my head before I realized that makes no sense
she seems to wish she was some amalgamation of '66 and '77
just generically revolutionary, you know
I'd rather take ignorance over faux political nonsense.
it's gonna be.. okay
"A duet with the first minister of Scotland, Alex Salmond, took place at one of the shows in Banff where he is the Member of Parliament, but during this period Thom gave interviews to the press trying to distance herself from politicians and politics by stating she was not the SNP's mascot and had not endorsed the SNP although her image and name had been used by the party and its leader Mr Salmond on numerous occasions, and Thom had endorsed publicly the SNP and its policies at the last election."

You should do another fresh vid to bring back the song like a reboot would be awesome
peaking at #4 in Canada.
Never seen/heard that before. I can't believe it's 00s.
Must try harder
Don't remember which it is but the one where he says "I really fucked it up this time"
It gets my vote.
It maybe the quickest way to see if a career is going through a less succesful patch by how many albums are underlined in blue and how many aren't
Jefferson Airplane's Somebody to Love. How did they get away with combining parachuting babies and a lingerie-clad model writhing seductively? Pure Ian Watkins.
I thought that video was awesome. Dali would have been proud.
most of that genre's hits in the mid-00s (Destination Calabria, I See Girls, that Mason vs Princess Superstar nonsense) were designed purely to fit a video for horny teenage boys to substitute their Socrates over.
That Mason track is excellent
The lyrics are pretty cringeworthy, but for me it comes across as naive rather than cynical. And wasn't it really well-known at one point? It's basically just her singing over some drum beats, kinda cool that such a sparse song could get so big pre-The xx.
whether You're All I Have is really good or really bad? I can't work it out.
where there's an amazing song by a much better band trapped inside. Imagine if Fucked Up had written that. It'd be so good.
When I mention this song to people they never seem to be able to remember it, but it used to be on the radio ALL the time, such a horrific song. Emo soft rock.

it actually really suits his voice. Wish he'd played this when I saw him live.
when I worked at McDonalds with a (as it turned out) paedophile, but the Welsh wizard has banished these memories. Thank you!
Worst - Crazy Frog
and that's saying something
Who'd have thought a song about old people standing on each others' feet would be quite so dreary?
Plain White T's - Hate (I Really Don't LIke You)
Fucking dreadful song, anyone who went to an 'indie disco' in the late 2000s will remember all the gurning and pointing and singing along in that fucking awful cringeworthy chorus. Vomit.
in that respect it was the 2000s version of 'Good Enough' by Dodgy
Whatever, I'll take it over Scouting for Girls /Kings of Leon /Beyonce /the Fratellis /Jet anytime.
Can't Stand Me Now's gotta be up there, surely? Talk about an apt song title.
she's one of those singer songwriter types that pretends to be indie and people who buy their CDs at starbucks can't tell the difference. in fact that's part of why she's awful.
But definitely, absolutely, unquestionable Pencil Full Of Lead by Paolo Nutini.
Failing that, either In For The Kill by La Roux, or one of the many singer/songwriters who thought it was possible to cover Teardrop acoustically.
:leaves boards, never to come back:
and just decided to have a quick listen to it and it's quite brilliant. i seem to have been mistaken.
Or Iglu & Hartley?
A career-killing classic (until that twat Barlow got involved anyway): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1l52QZmN1Gs
(It's not Rudebox)
more like flies round shite
makes The Postal Service sound like Einstürzende Neubauten. it's as if he wrote a song specifically to build a wimp meets neurotic indie film around.
Of course it's about the money you idiot.
her entire discography is just an embarrassment.
