Hence why I avoid karaoke unless really drunk (my rendition of Whole Lotta Love a couple of years ago sounded like a Whole Lotta Felgercarb*). I used to sing in my local church choir. My voice ain't what it used to be :paranoid:

I put on Gods of the Earth by The Sword a minute ago. Any band with a song entitled Fire Lances of the Ancient Hyperzephyrians is win in my book :smile:

*Ten points if you guess the reference.

Accelerate - R.E.M.

Title track.

This is a decent album, but it doesn't really do much for me. The songs are kind of samey, so one might as well just pick one or two songs to actually listen to. The exception is "I'm Gonna DJ." Quality song. :cool:

Placebo.

A guy in my lab put on their 'Meds' album and since the when I've been bored I've put on Meds, Infra-red or Follow the cops and it's really starting to grow on me.

I was listening to my blues playlist on my iPod today, and it got me thinking: shouldn't the blues be making a resurgence right now? Unemployment and underemployment are sky-high, everyone's investments and finances are in ruins, Washington can't get anything done, we're no longer the big cheese of international relations. This should be the perfect breeding grounds for the comeback of the blues! And real, gritty, one guy with an acoustic guitar blues. Not this polished, upper middle class Kenny Wayne Shepherd crap.

Nah, the genre is already there. I mean, perhaps within people who are still making modern blues, it might get more bluesy, or something, thanks to those affected by the current economic downturn. But I wouldn't think in the mainstream.

But the whole soul-crushing depression thing isn't really pervading all of America. The zeitgeist doesn't seem concerned in that way about it all.

There probably are interesting trends to notice of songs made in 2007, and then ones in later '08 and '09. Or just before and after the bubble burst. At least, lyrically in certain genres.

I'm listening to the latest dance track from my friend. He's trying out youtube, it seems, so he could use all the views/votes he can get. It's called Descent.
