Fashionably late to every party since 1982!




That elusive hide-and-seek cow is at it again
My bad, just checked and the above can be ignored .... purely force of habit.

Sorry Meester Wootf
lol ...for a second there I thought I might be getting preferential treatment. Dang. I'm sorry my absentmindedness has created a habit!!

Round 9

1. Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds - Up Jumped the Devil
(I think my appreciation for a song increases approximately 28% by simply having "devil" in the title. A spooky carouse around the gallows tree, which is basically a normal weekday night for yours truly. Down we go.)

2. Caro Emerald - Stuck
(Very enjoyable. Marking her name down as an artist to explore later on.)

3. Mark Ronson ft. Miley Cyrus - Nothing Breaks Like a Heart
(I appreciate Miley's willingness to flaunt her flat ass any chance she gets. Liked this more than expected. I assume I should've heard it before now if I wasn't completely out of touch with modern radio. Danceable, Latin-flavored groove; production is moderately restrained by today's pop standards. Probably the best thing I've heard come from Billy Ray's scrotum.)

4. Midori - Sayonara, Perfect World
(LOL. This could be unlistenable if I already had a headache, but fortunately I feel pretty good this afternoon so this schizophrenic noise assault was fun in its own way. Jazzy Japanese chaos.)

5. Lea Salonga - On My Own
(Appreciate the vocal ability here even if it's too Walt Disney for me.)

6. CNCO & Little Mix - Reggaetón Lento
(I enjoy watching ladies dance to this style of music far more than I enjoy listening to it.)

7. Superchunk - Hyper Enough
(90's in the worst ways. Somebody plant an explosive in that dude's drum kit.)
