|Joseph Arthur - Even Tho|

|Why all the hate? :(
This song is brilliant. When the tambourine comes in at about :38 and the guitars come in about :47, now that's when the song becomes orgasmic and it never lets up.
|Neil Young - Bandit|

|Last play: never? Hmm, you'll have to fix that. This a great song. So relaxing, and it's one of those song's that depressing without making you feel all horrible and self-destructive after listening!|
|Thomas Dolby - She Blinded Me With Science|
(Jul 30, 2004 - 14:35)
It's laughable that on THIS station this is the one Dolby song they play. Eclectic music right? This was Thomas' one hit, and in no way represents his musical prowess. I personally belive him to be one of the finest musicains of the last two decades, tues such as, the Flat Earth, Screen Kiss, I Love You Goodbye, and Mirror Song have defined my youth and creative path. A brilliant musician most underappriciated, radio paradise should recognise the true fruits of his work.
Yes, yes, yes. Bill, please add "I Love You Goodbye." I would upload it but my MP3 is only at 128... :(
|Ryan Adams - Wonderwall|

|LOL, these are among the funniest comments of any song on RP. I, personally, love this song. It sounds like he's taking the light-speed express road to the underworld and is halfway there. His other songs could never accomplish that. But everyone else I knows hates it. My favorite comments are how it's "crappy and depressing" and it's by "Ryan Adams, not even Bryan Adams"... haha.|
|Orbital - Illuminate (w/ David Gray)|
(Jul 23, 2004 - 14:51)
Sounds like it should be taken from the software to the hardware apartment :p
Haha yeah, but that's why I like it so much! :D
|Great Big Sea - When I'm Up|
(Jul 23, 2004 - 14:38)
The midwest is generally considered to be Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, and Nebraska.
But for New Yorkers, it's defined as the area between 10th avenue and Los Angeles.
And Colorado too, even though Colorado won't admit it.
Agreed on the New Yorkers point.
I'm surprised that this is the only Great Big Sea track on here. But it's one of their best, so I can't complain.
|London Beat - I've Been Thinking About You|
(Jul 23, 2004 - 14:32)
|LOL, this plays and everyone immediately responds to it. This is hilarious. I like the song but I totally wan't expecting it. I'll agree with the poster that says that to be RP, RP has to play something like this once in awhile.|
|Counting Crows - Mr. Jones|
(Jul 23, 2004 - 11:25)
|"Mr. Jones and me tell each other fairy tales"? Sorry, that won't cut it for me. I don't like how he goes "sha la la la la la"... and this song just goes around and around and has no point to it. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, but in this case it is.|
|Counting Crows - Mrs. Potter's Lullaby|
(Jul 23, 2004 - 11:23)
OK, so they have at least one good song.
Haha, I'll second that.
To the one who said it's overplayed... where the heck are ya? I'll be moving there!
This song does say something. It's about this old chic who's the last one living of her "posse" and looks back and regrets that her life wasn't stacked up as she wanted it to be, but it doesn't go all-out pretentious and say that she should have done this or that. She just accepts it, albeit wistfully. That's totally fine. Sometimes you just feel like that.
Anyway, I used to hate the CC until this song. They had a listenable song here and there, but nothing earth-shattering (And the song of theirs that actually was overplayed, "Mr. Jones," was supremely horrible.) Mrs. Potter's lullaby gets a "10" because it's the only song that's ever made me cry.
|Dirty Vegas - Simple Things|
(Jul 23, 2004 - 11:08)
|This is what Dirty Vegas is all about... not "Days Go By." Anwyay, this song rocks. It's upbeat and chill at the same time.|
|The Postal Service - Such Great Heights|
(Jul 23, 2004 - 11:05)
|Nothing wrong with this one. Every time I hear it, I think I'm driving through downtown San Diego with the palm trees and trendy apartment complexes on both sides of me. Daaaamn, I wish I was back there so badly...|
|Howie Day - Perfect Time Of Day|
(Jul 23, 2004 - 10:43)
|This song is nothing short of amazing. Yeah it's produced -- but as long as the talent is there (which in this case, it clearly is) production's not a bad thing.|
|The Pretenders - Complex Person|
(Jul 23, 2004 - 10:32)
|This song is so horrible. The first four or five seconds are good and then it goes all the way downhill from there. Bad lyrics, too. :verysorry: |
|Josh Joplin Group - Camera One|
(Jul 23, 2004 - 09:47)
|I can honestly say that this is the best song in the history of the universe. The lyrics, the music, his voice, everything comes together more perfecly than in any other song I've heard. Yes, his voice sounds Stipe-ish, but everything else in the song does not. You can't help how your voice sounds! Seriously though, if you think this song is REM then I recommend either listening to more of REM's work, or getting a hearing aid. I'll concede that most of the other songs on this album sound like bad REM demos, but this ain't one of them. (Neither is "Matter" or "I've Changed" or "Undone.") I've put this song on repeat for 3 hours before because it's that good and I can't get sick of it. That being said, nobody says that you have to like it, but at least admit a good song when you hear one. (Yes, it's possible. I don't like the Beatles or Beethoven, but I have to admit that their songs are good.)
I remember when my CHR/Pop station added this right before I was about to graduate from high school... sigh, I miss KQKY so much. Small town radio is usually the best because they can get away with more. But I don't miss anything else about the town that that station was in. ;-)
