|Sonic Youth - Unmade Bed|
(Sep 15, 2005 - 12:40)
Great song... but you know, Sonic Youth has been around from 1981; they have an amazing discography. Yet, It seems a couple tracks from 2004's Nurse and one other track from 1995's Washing Machine (which is, quite honestly, one of the band's weaker albums) are all that are played on Radio Paradise! I notice the following are rejected: Candle, Dirty Boots, Disappearer, JC, Teen Age Riot, The Diamond Sea, The Empty Page. These are great songs!
the empty page has since been added, thank you very much.
sonic youth is difficult to fit into playlists, though, you've gotta remember.
|Sheryl Crow - Letter To God|
(Sep 15, 2005 - 11:40)
Is it just me, or does she look younger with each album?
this is a good thing, if you're mr.armstrong.
|Sheryl Crow - Letter To God|
(Sep 15, 2005 - 11:39)
|i absolutely adore the fact that bill continually points out how unimpressed he is by sheryl crow. it makes me laugh every time.
keep it up, i'd love for her to be the running joke.
|Bob Dylan - Things Have Changed|
(Aug 10, 2005 - 15:38)
That's laughable man. Just laughable. Flash forward 100 years: "Radiowho?"
i somehow doubt your logic, sir. they've wormed their way into vocabulary too well.
|George Harrison - Isn't It A Pity|
(Aug 08, 2005 - 10:14)
|i think this is the only post-beatles song that holds a candle to "imagine"...
absolutely, undeniably a perfect 10.
|Coldplay - White Shadows|
(Aug 04, 2005 - 08:37)
I always want this tune to continue into "Fix You", just the most uplifting damn song. I'd upload it, but I think the RP Coldplay police would hunt me down.
it's funny you'd say that... that transition drives me nuts... it's like they didn't listen to the finished product, and that that bit needs a couple extra seconds of transition time, but they rush right into the next song... to me that was a sign that they're really new at this, and aren't going to be "taking over the u2 throne" anytime soon.
|Depeche Mode - Never Let Me Down Again|
(Aug 03, 2005 - 16:26)
|not sure if it's been mentioned, but has anyone here heard the smashing pumpkins' cover of this song?
it's really quite good - i recommend it enthusiastically.

|Low - On The Edge Of|
(Aug 03, 2005 - 13:58)
Yes. If you're copying Neil Young's Crazy Horse in every way possible which is obviously these guys intention.
people doing what has been done before is biblical.
everyone is influenced by everyone.
besides, neil young is fantastic... nothing wrong with sounding like something extremely good.
i'll take that over trying to sound like tiffany.
|The White Stripes - As Ugly As I Seem|
(Aug 03, 2005 - 10:06)
this is basically one of the best albums you're likely to hear anywhere besides college radio this year.
you need to listen to the whole album to appreciate it, the cuts or so diverse and varied.
well and the hiss and pop is not, i don't believe, 'artistic', it's because they record on pre-computer equipment with an analog 8 track recorder I believe.
maybe meg needs to be moved along, but jack is one of the est musicians producing stuff on a regular basis. who knows what they will be, but what they are and have been is refreshing.
i was a little disappointed by this album on a whole, personally. though it is more interesting than several other albums, it just doesn't gel as a whole as well as it should. meg is particularily distracting on this lp, whereas it seemed to work on the punkier-edged older material. even their older blues-oriented music on de stijl worked with megdrums, but not a lot of this stuff.
i do believe this one to be better than elephant though, "seven nation army" or not.
|U2 - City Of Blinding Lights|
(Aug 03, 2005 - 09:29)
It's also no like most of their post Achtung Baby material. It's more or less, continuing the retro sounds of All That You can't Leave Behind.
If you want to hear a great u2 track, find Mercy and give it a listen. Easilly the best track they recorded for the new album. Fast Cars is a nice track too.
i haven't heard mercy yet... where is it from? i keep missing it on the lrc... was that yr upload?
|U2 - One Tree Hill|
(Aug 03, 2005 - 09:20)
|this song seems like it's at a lower volume than the previous ones... bill?|
|This Picture - Naked Rain|
(Aug 03, 2005 - 09:15)
i have to say, i'm sort of impressed by this song, though, yes, the singer is wanky.
|U2 - Wild Honey|
(Aug 02, 2005 - 13:30)
This is such a good album. So much better than How to Dismantle An Atomic Bomb.
couldn't disagree more.
|10 CC - Dreadlock Holiday|
(Jul 29, 2005 - 13:08)
|this really makes me want to listen to 2manydj's mashup remix of this song mixed with destiny's child's "independent women"...
it really is a work of genius.
|U2 - Please (Live From Rotterdam)|
(Jul 29, 2005 - 12:25)
|regardless of any prior whitty comments about u2, i am so happy to hear this selection on rp.
also, bill, this song was originally from the album Pop not Zooropa
|Coldplay - Talk|
(Jul 29, 2005 - 12:11)
|this is a different version than what i have on my X&Y... where did this one come from?|
|The Beatles - Tomorrow Never Knows|
(Jul 28, 2005 - 14:34)
|gee-whiz and gosh!
why are there so many pages worth of comments about this song?
you'd think it was significant or something...
|Radiohead - Optimistic|
(Jul 27, 2005 - 15:47)
One of the greatest bands in the history of music, who sadly got a little strange towards the end...
define "the end" and "towards"
|Iron & Wine - The Trapeze Swinger|
(Jul 27, 2005 - 15:46)
|k, this song is from this soundtrack only, so i don't need to post the proper album cover. silly uploaders...|
|Folk Implosion - Natural One|
(Jul 27, 2005 - 10:12)
I liked this song so much, I bought the Kids soundtrack CD. Bad move. Natural One is great, but nothing else good on the disk. I'd recommend getting it as a single track on iTunes or wherever.
why not just buy the folk implosion album, as apposed to a bad soundtrack, out of curiousity?
|John Lee Hooker - The Healer (With Santana)|
(Jul 26, 2005 - 09:36)
I know what you mean, though ProTools (and the like) can't help what people record with it.
it can when you can't sing or tune your guitar.
(edit: i'm sure that john lee doesn't have either of those problems, mind you...)
|Fun Lovin' Criminals - Crazy Train|
(Jul 25, 2005 - 11:40)
|you really have to play this with the cardigans' lounge cover of 'iron man', or their barbershop-style version of 'mr.crowley'.|
|The White Birch - Beauty King|
(Jul 25, 2005 - 11:12)
|it was worth playing this song just for the transition out of 'everything in its right place'... pure genius. keep up the great work...|
|Travis - Happy To Hang Around|
(Jul 25, 2005 - 09:57)
|this album really disappointed me initially. i was really looking forward to it, but it just came across as rather 'white bread' to me...
however, in the radio paradise context, it breathes some life into it somehow... thanks for that!
|The Killers - Smile Like You Mean It|
(Jul 15, 2005 - 11:14)
|i don't want to for the principle of it, but i like 'em...
though that "IT'S INDIE ROCK AND ROLL TO ME!" song from this record is pretty nauseating.
i was a little disappointed by anton corbjin's video for these guys, too. too bad...
|Talking Heads - Once In A Lifetime|
(Jul 15, 2005 - 10:00)
|my favourite aspect of this song is the eno in the background - you have to admit he and byrne were very complimentary.
there's a good commentary in the july issue of Mojo on U2 talking about eno and lanois, and how they work in the studio...
i love the creative process sooooo much.
|Fleetwood Mac - Oh Well|
(Jul 13, 2005 - 13:41)
|gotta love an album with a naked man riding a horse.
screams "buy me!".
|10,000 Maniacs - These Are Days|
(Jul 13, 2005 - 09:10)
|i hate to say it, but somehow i just can't accustom myself to natalie merchant. her voice has always just bothered me somehow. sorry, tried to be openminded...|
|Travis - Somewhere Else|
(Jul 12, 2005 - 09:35)
|to be perfectly honest, these guys were a little drab live somehow. perhaps it was the vibe coming from seeing them with dido. the lead guitarist was fantastic, though, i really enjoyed his energy.
but i met them, and they are the nicest band i've ever met. really down to earth, and easy to talk to. i can't help but want to support them based on how much i liked them as people.
|Iron & Wine - Woman King|
(Jul 12, 2005 - 09:09)
|wow, the average rating of this song is surprisingly bad... that's too bad.|
|Neil Young - Four Strong Winds|
(Jul 11, 2005 - 08:52)
|just for the record, this would go next to "only a broken heart" by tom petty from wildflowers perfectly.
just in case anyone is listening!
|Breeders - Cannonball|
(Jul 07, 2005 - 14:47)
|this is such a perfect altrock song... sigh.
anyone heard 2manydj's remix of this vs. "i wish" by skee-lo?
|R.E.M. - The Outsiders (w/ Q-Tip)|
(Jul 07, 2005 - 14:41)
|i think this track is very wonderful.
i strongly disagree with all the hatred... though i know it's a bit of an adult-contemporary styled track.
|R.E.M. - I Wanted to Be Wrong|
(Jul 07, 2005 - 14:38)
|i would love to hear this one get some sort of recognition... it is way too easy for this one to fall by the wayside.|
|Radiohead - Optimistic|
(Jul 07, 2005 - 10:51)
|oh my chicken, do i ever absolutely adore this album... *swoon*
thank you soooo much for playing this song.
|Portishead - Glory Box|
(Jul 07, 2005 - 10:25)
This is the exact same loop as a Tricky song from the same era...off of the Maxinquaye album...wonder who used it first?
Who sampled Isaac Hayes first, Tricky or Portishead?
Both 'Glory Box' and 'Hell is Round the Corner' sampled from 'Ike's Rap II' without knowledge of the other. Tricky's album Maxinquaye came first, but Glory Box was written first.
|The White Stripes - As Ugly As I Seem|
(Jul 06, 2005 - 10:46)
|i really like this song... possibly one of the best songs they've done - reminds me of the de stijl album.
but this song is mistitled? this isn't little ghost.
it's "forever for her"
|Jars of Clay - Frail|
(Jul 05, 2005 - 10:02)
Cool... Porucupine Tree Lite!
correct me if i'm wrong, but wasn't this in the same era?
|The Beatles - Let It Be|
(Jun 29, 2005 - 15:33)
I actually prefer the Let It Be....naked version, after a few listens. I know that seems like tampering with religion but I think its simplicity has even greater impact
I have to say, it reduces the cheese factor to rid of the nice, organized, clean guitar solo (not played by George Harrison) and the female chorus ala Phil Spector.
Why on Earth would anyone replace the Harrison solo??? Though I prefer where Spector had the Billy Preston organ bit coming in on this version.
|Patty Griffin - Little God|
(Jun 29, 2005 - 14:36)
Sorry. I 'm not impressed.
i have to agree. her voice is nice, but ...
|Chorus of Tribes - Into Morocco|
(Jun 29, 2005 - 14:30)
|that was a fantastic transition from stevie ray vaughn to this...
gotta be in the bag of tricks file...
|Hem - Half Acre|
(Jun 29, 2005 - 12:43)
|This song would go great with some Eels.|
|Robert Plant - Mighty Rearranger|
(Jun 29, 2005 - 12:26)
|i'm not sure it's all that inventive.
it's not offensive, just kind of bland.
the first single is a little better in my books.
|Happy Mondays - Bob's Yer Uncle|
(Jun 29, 2005 - 11:02)
|i have to say, i'm excited to finally hear a track from this album... i went out and bought their yes please album, and it was absolutely unlistenable. this is a dramatic improvement over that, though i am not a fan of theirs yet.|
