|They Might Be Giants - Cowtown|

|Okay, it is now time for Ana Ng, followed by Birdhouse in your Soul. Come on... we've broken the TMBG barrier! Keep them coming!
You know, I love how BIll sets up these playlists. Dana Lyons - Cows with Guns came on right afterwards. Absoutely marvellous!!! A good 10 minutes of laughing for me! If you haven't donated, good god, this guy deserves it from you.
|Midnight Oil - Beds Are Burning|

|I like the oil a lot, great political rock, but this song - - - gag! I think it's his voice, all quavery and groany and whiny sounding, it makes my spine want to leap right out of my back and throttle someone. In fact, I KNOW it's his voice, because I've heard a few remixes with his voice removed and it becomes an absolutely WICKED song. Ahh, if only someone could just redub this, it would improve things so much better.|
|Midnight Oil - Blue Sky Mine|

|Of all their songs I like this one the most - the one that drives me up the wall is "Beds are Burning" - now that one sounds like fingers on a chalkboard. He has an odd quaver to his voice that seems to really get under my screen particularly so in that song. Not to mention a heavy pedantic beat... but we aren't talking about that song are we! This one though... great song.|
|Crash Test Dummies - God Shuffled His Feet|
(Jan 26, 2004 - 20:20)
|Great song, and I do like the theological commentary. They are subtle in their lyrics for all their songs and highly underrated I think.
Interesting thing - while cross-border shopping in Buffalo back in 1996 or so I ran into the lead singer at a factory outlet mall. He was wearing a black trenchcoat, jeans and running shoes and shopping with his mom. I know it was him because I sneakily followed him for a couple minutes and heard that deep, sonourous voice pour forth, "But Mom..." Silly of me, but I enjoyed a little glimpse behind the scenes of a great artist.
Play this band anytime.
|Noir Désir - L' Enfant Roi|
(Jan 26, 2004 - 19:37)
|Bring on the surrender monkeys. More Thievery Corp, more Noir Desir, more enigmatic french lyrics, and who cares where they're really from. Great song from a great band. Parfait. I give in!|
|Steely Dan - The Royal Scam|
(Jan 26, 2004 - 19:35)
|I find his voice to yowly for me, not my favourite song or artist. Boring song too! But, even boring songs have a place on Radio Paradise...|
|Cowboy Junkies - Dark Hole Again|
(Dec 06, 2003 - 13:59)
|I dunno about this one. Its a little bit droning and repetitive, but there are a few interesting quirks that make it different and listenable, in an introspective and deeply moody kind of way. I dunno about it, but I vote "No" on the "play it every day for a month" mention. Maybe once a week or so...|
|Eels - I Like Birds|
(Nov 24, 2003 - 01:30)
|This is a great song, simple, clean and honest. I like it quite a bit, and has a nice little commentary on the world. Take a break from your TPS reports and look out the window when this comes on - its a beautiful world out there.|
|The Cure - Lullaby|
(Sep 13, 2003 - 20:21)
|It is an extremely different song, I agree, it's one of my favourites. It's a good song when you're feeling paranoid...|
|Damon Albarn & Friends - Spoons|
(Jun 12, 2003 - 14:12)
|I am stoned, and inside an aquarium, watching belugas watch me. I like it - its an odd song. For some reason it has an Amelie kind of ring to it too, d'ya think?|
|Clinic - Harmony|
(Jun 12, 2003 - 13:53)
|I'm a big fan of this song and finally bought the CD - the rest of it is similar, with some additional great tunes. I blame RP for increasing my music vocabulary, but I agree it would be good to hear a few other tunes from the album.|
