|David Bowie - The Man Who Sold The World|
(Jun 14, 2004 - 10:07)
I actually got into an argument with someone once who thought the Nirvana cover was the original and Bowie's was a remake. Oy.
at the end of the song cobain even says "that was a david bowie song"

In fact, I think that there's a bit of 'banter' in between songs where kurt complains about his guitar or something.
"what are they tuning a harp?"
|DJ Shadow - Mongrel Meets His Maker|
(May 28, 2004 - 11:34)
i tried to upload a bunch of stuff off of "endtroducing" and "preemptive strike", but was denied. this song is aight, but endtroducing is his masterpiece. it is nice to see some good hiphop in here, even if it is disguised as "electronica" (is that term passe? who cares).
i know what you mean buddy. why would they reject his early stuff? and whats with the ignorance here, shadow is only the grandfather to hip-hop and single-handedly shaped it to what it is. i suppose RP listeners could give a shit about about that. what i would give to hear flat out hip-hop on RP.

Teenagers have bad taste anyway.........has she ever heard the orginal Nine Inch Nails version of hurt: maybe if you play that, she'll realize how cool Johnny truly is.
A. thanks for the funny and ignorant comment. B. yea johnny was just chillin listening to the downward spiral with a big mac and fries and said "trent im gonna cover your tune" or did rick rubin pull his strings. also was the videos intent to make us mourn his death before he died? that said he did rock sucks he gone

Somehow I missed this in the 80s, but Donnie Darko introduced it to me and it is a classic now, I think. Fucking brilliant. And I love the way the tape speeds up for the sax solo. Also a great moment in the movie.

|Santana - Song Of The Wind|
(May 10, 2004 - 11:39)
I may be committing heresy in the eyes of all the Santana fans, but can the guy break out of his little thing even a little bit?
At least this is Santana in his own element, though. That junk that he put out in the last couple of years, written with all of the current artists, only confirmed how stale and uninventive the guy is.
i am in total agreement. but i never gave a damn about his music so i must be wrong for not likeing him.....it seems i need more proof. if i was a santana fan i would only need one song and id be set.

Very mollusky sounding. I saw them at a show here and they rocked out pretty good. Then a bunch of girls got on stage and started doing the drunk girl dance. Which, I guess is ok if you're a drunk guy
ive been incredibly intoxicated and seen that dance many times unfortunately. never does it for me.

I agree...but I think you'll find that Religeon is the problem...not the US...nor the UK ....etc
And not the Beatles for a change!
i agree religion is the catalyst.....moving on, i could go for a stiff cosmopolitan and a spliff
|Bob Dylan - Dignity|
(May 06, 2004 - 14:16)
I have always wanted to like Bob Dylan.
It just doesn't work for me. I'm more of a Tom Waits person.
it is my personal belief that tom is more preferable than most audio stimuli "theres nothing wrong with a lady drinking alone in a room" cheers. ahhhh better

|first time everyones in agreement i think.

|its jennifer charles from "elysian fields' and mike patton from 'faith no more'. by the way this cd was produced by a dj (dan the automator) he directly sampled the bass line from portishead its not like hes secretly steeling it. i guess you could still argue it being a rip off. still think its a sweeet little number|

I'm not sure I'm ok with glorifying arson in this way. What kind of message does it send to kids?
i think the message is "this is the kind of free country where you can say whatever you want but not do. ok kid?"

Singer jailed for killing lover 3-27-04
Cantat said he was deeply sorry for Trintignant's death
A court in Lithuania has sentenced a French rock star to eight years in prison for killing his actress girlfriend during a fight. Bertrand Cantat, 40, was convicted of fatally beating Marie Trintignant, 41, in a Vilnius hotel room last year.
Cantat, lead singer with Noir Desir, had admitted killing Ms Trintignant but said it was an accident.
Prosecutors had sought a sentence of nine years, saying Cantat had known the gravity of his actions.
The singer's lawyers wanted a reduced charge of reckless manslaughter, which carried a lesser penalty.
I don't understand. I just can't understand
Affair that ended in tragedy
Cantat remained impassive as the verdict was announced. Whole article>
wow. hard to connect this song to that crime

In an interview on Fresh Air last year, TW said that he likes to tell sad stories with beautiful melody. Isn't that the truth. He just breaks my heart.
That interview is sure worth a search on npr.org for Waits fans.
This particular song just got covered on Norah Jones' new album.
Ive listened to that interview like 5 times
