|Those crunchy guitars give me chills every time I hear them. One of my all time favorite songs.|

|Ok, I liked it up until the point mr costello started singing. where did he come from ????|
|R.E.M. - Accelerate|
(Apr 15, 2008 - 13:12)
|I am lovin' this new REM album, definitely their best since new adventures in hi-fi. And that was 12 years ago!! Wow I'm getting old.|
|A Fine Frenzy - You Picked Me|
(Nov 20, 2007 - 18:31)
i think I'm starting to like them...her..
If that's 'her' on the cover, I really need to check them ... her ... out!
|Hot Little Rocket - Like Killers|
(Nov 20, 2007 - 12:42)
Yep, this lacks something...quality.
Go ASU! Class of 2003!
I'll have to humbly disagree with my fellow sun devil. I like this, its hooky but edgy. Must look these guys up.
Go ASU! Class of 2000!
|Arcade Fire - Keep The Car Running|
(Sep 26, 2007 - 18:34)
|Disappointed! How can Bill be disappointed by this album. I love it, it's more consistent and overall better than funeral, and in my top 3 best albums of this year! This particular song gets me pumped up everytime I hear it.
Come on bill, give this album some more time, it will grow on you - promise.
|White Stripes - Seven Nation Army|
(Aug 28, 2007 - 18:02)
This is some incredible work on the bass. Quite understated but yet amazing! I don't like the White Stripes that much, but this song is pretty cool.
That's funny because there is no base guitar on the song. There is no base player in the White Stripes and Jack White doesn't play the base guitar anywhere on this album. It's an illusion!! Or whatever you would call an illusion of the ear.
|Built To Spill - Traces|
(Aug 17, 2007 - 14:58)
mmkay, I'm about ready to buy this album. Should I? I think I will buy the CD and stop buying from iTunes; though I love the convenience of iTunes, I like having a tangible product (liner notes, real 'pressed' CD that is higher quality than lossy mp4, etc.)
well worth the money, this was my favorite album of last year, conventional wisdom and going against your mind being my favorite tracks.
|The White Stripes - You Don't Know What Love Is|
(Jul 26, 2007 - 11:57)
|This song is AWESOME! It's got to be one of the most accessible songs the Stripes have done, and it could be a huge single if marketed right and accompanied by a strong video.
About the album, my first thought was ho-hum, but the more I listen the more and more I like it, especially the songs '300 M.P.H. Torrential Outpour Blues' and 'Effect and Cause'. Give the album some more spins and see if your view doesn't change.
|Regina Spektor - On The Radio|
(Jul 03, 2007 - 15:08)
I love this, I love her
minus the ah-ahah-ahah-ah-aaahh bits from her other song
those can go
noooooooo, those ah-ahah-ahah-ah-aahh's are exactly why I love her music. just like her mmm'ming and the radio-o-o-oh's from this song. she doesn't just sing the lyrics, she's part of the music, part of the instrumentation. Karen O does similar things with the yeah yeah yeahs. so distinctive, so gosh darn cute! i love it!
|Led Zeppelin - Immigrant Song|
(May 15, 2007 - 18:48)
|I for one am not happy to see Zep's songs being commercialized more and more. I just heard this song in the Shrek 3 trailer. Shrek 3!! Why!|
|Built To Spill - Liar|
(May 15, 2007 - 13:36)
Well, at least the album cover is kinda cool.
That's funny, Pitchfork included this cover in their 25 Worst Album Covers of 2006
Great song by the way.
|Cold War Kids - We Used To Vacation|
(Mar 07, 2007 - 12:53)
This song sounds better when Jack White does it. This clone might not make it out of the gate.
exactly what i was thinking, this song sounds just like the stripes, but not nearly as good. Now, when are we getting a new album from mr white?
|The Apples In Stereo - Energy|
(Feb 28, 2007 - 20:25)
|I just LOOOOOVE this song. It makes me want to stand up and sing aloud!! What more could you want!|
|The Decemberists - On the Bus Mall|
(Dec 27, 2006 - 11:49)
|I may be the few and fortunate, but i LOVE this guys voice, it is thrilling, and draws me in to every song. And that's before the lyrics blow me away. Amazing song.|
|Camera Obscura - Keep It Clean|
(Sep 06, 2006 - 10:31)
|This my favorite album of the year so far. So lush and beautiful, I just find my self swept away by each song. A smile just grows bigger on my face as the song progresses. Thank you Camera Obscura for making my day a little happier.|
|Of Montreal - Wraith Pinned To The Mist & Other Games|
(Apr 26, 2006 - 10:12)
|I wasn't sure about this song the first time I heard it, but over time it has drilled it's way into my head and now everytime I hear it a smile appears on my face and I find myself chair dancing along to the wonderful beat. What more can I ask for.|
|Andrew Bird - Tables And Chairs|
(Feb 23, 2006 - 13:24)
|I love this song, it made my best of 2005 compilation cd, glad to see it here on RP!
"i know we're going to meet some day
in the crumbled financial institutions of this land
there will be tables and chairs
there'll be pony rides and dancing bears
there'll even be a band
cause listen, after the fall there will be no more countries
no currencies at all, we're gonna live on our wits
we're gonna throw away survival kits,
trade butterfly-knives for adderal
and that's not all
ooh-ooh, there will be snacks there will
there will be snacks, there will be snacks."

|Pixies - Here Comes Your Man|
(Jan 09, 2006 - 10:31)
|One of my top 10 all-time favorite songs. That baseline makes my knees weak,my heart patter and my lips smile. Aaaaa-ooooo!|
|The Cure - Pictures of You|
(Mar 07, 2005 - 16:04)
|There are a MILLION other Cure songs, how bout playing one of those for a change. This song is ruined for me, because I have heard it 1.3 billion times!!! (i'm exaggerating a tiny bit)|
|Bright Eyes - At the Bottom of Everything|
(Mar 07, 2005 - 14:19)
|Well I'm going against most of the other posts and saying this song is awesome! This is the first track of "I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning" and Conor usually puts long, non-musical intros to his albums, and this one is the best of the bunch, with a cute little story about dying and starting a new life "Happy Birthday!" Here is the intro if you want to read a bit of poetry from the great Conor Oberst:
"So there was this women and she was on an airplane and she's flying to meet her fiancé sailing high above the largest ocean on planet earth and she was seated next to this man who you know she had tried to start a conversation, but really the only thing she heard him say was to order his bloody mary and she's sitting there and she's reading this really arduous magazine article about this third world country that she couldn't even pronounce the name of and she's feeling very bored and very despondent and then uh suddenly there's this huge mechanical failure and one of the engines gave out and they started just falling thirty thousand feet and the pilots on the microphone and he's saying, "I'm sorry, I'm sorry, Oh My God, I'm Sorry" and apologizing and she looks at the man and she says, "where are we going" and he looks at her and he says, "We're going to a party, it's a birthday party. It's your birthday party, happy birthday darling. We love you very, very, very, very, very, very, very much." and then he starts humming this little tune and it kind of goes like this ..."
|Green Day - Warning|
(Dec 28, 2004 - 21:03)
at the beginning of this song, i thought they were going to do a bad cover of the Kink's Picture Book. same riff. i'm glad it wasn't.
I didn't know the kinks song until I heard it recently in a kodak commerical, and I thought, "that sounds just like green day!" I then researched and found out it was the kinks. That "picture book" is a great song though. Makes me want to buy some old kinks albums :)
|The Strokes - Soma|
(Nov 29, 2004 - 13:52)
|All right! I love the strokes, how about some songs from "Room on Fire" like 'the end has no end' or 'you talk to much'
|The Who - I Can't Explain|
(Nov 15, 2004 - 11:56)
|The Hives new single totally stole the riff from this song. Steal from the best, i guess!|
|William Shatner - Common People|
(Oct 18, 2004 - 11:58)
|Wow! That was much better than I expected. I read that Joe Jackson sings the chorus on this track. I don't know If I can handle much more like this, but it's pretty good.|
|Live - All Over You|
(Aug 30, 2004 - 11:20)
|Live's only good album, but damn is it good!
Play 'I alone' or 'selling the drama' for more good listening
this smiley reminds me of Natalie Portman in 'Garden State' and then The Shins come on and I am again reminded of Natialie Portman in 'Garden State' or maybe I'm just obsessed with Natalie Portman :D
|Franz Ferdinand - Matinee|
(Aug 16, 2004 - 14:55)
|This song is awesome! What a great band, please play more Ferdinand: ' Jacqueline' is a great song and 'Michael' is good too.
|Big Head Todd & The Monsters - Tangerine|
(Jun 01, 2004 - 16:29)
|The original being my favorite song of all time, this needs to be replaced by the Zep version immediatly. No offense to big head todd and his monsters. As MaK said, this song is just uncoverable.
MORE ZEPPELIN PLEASE!!
|Jayhawks - All The Right Reasons|
(Apr 29, 2004 - 13:23)
|This whole CD is wonderful. Sappy, but they do sappy soooo well, it just makes you stop what your doing and listen, it's just beautiful.
|Fountains Of Wayne - Supercollider|
(Apr 29, 2004 - 13:10)

the xylophone is just awesome, there's not nearly enough xylophone in pop/rock songs! More Violent Femmes!!
|The Coral - Dreaming of You|
(Feb 26, 2004 - 10:47)
|This is one of the best albums of 2002, highly recommended! Bad Man and I Remember When are also great tracks.

Awesome song, beautiful lyrics!!

|"I'd like to live beneath the dirt
A tiny space to move and breathe is all that i would ever need
I want to live beneath the dirt
Where i'd be free from push and shove like all those swarming up above
Beneath your heals i'll spend my time"
Great Song, more from Farmhouse!!!

|Alanis Morissette - Hand In My Pocket|
(Sep 04, 2003 - 17:34)
You know, when "Jagged Little Pill" came out, I enjoyed the hell out of it. So it must have some good qualities, but "timeless" just isn't one of them. I can't listen to her now without cringing, and this song is one of the worst.
My thoughts exactly
|Neil Young - Old Man|
(Sep 04, 2003 - 16:35)
|"Old man look at my life,
Twenty four and there's so much more
Live alone in a paradise
That makes me think of two."

|Barenaked Ladies - Lovers In A Dangerous Time|
(Sep 04, 2003 - 16:24)
one more thought: "gotta kick at the darness 'til it bleeds daylight" are words to live by
Awesome song, love the way the drumming just gets louder and faster as the song progresses
|Led Zeppelin - The Rover|
(Sep 04, 2003 - 12:42)
|Better Zeppelin on House of the Holy, how about 'Over the Hills and Far Away' or ' D'Yer Mak'er'. But any Zep is solid play on RP, thx.
