Shit, this is a pretty cool fucking song to have as our Number One Single of 2007. James Murphy is a good man.

Damo Suzuki: So, um, yeah. Getting older isn't as bad as it sounds. Better than being young & poor (DjDrake) or young & slutty (SG) or young, poor and slutty (Paves); am I right?

Alright, my friends. It's time for another solid little rock jam

I was about to say maybe if you count Deerhunter guy's chest hole as a person


Mr. Bird, Mr. Good and I are going to have to respectfully disagree with you.

Thank you, Paul.

Eventually I'll put up a list of the top 500 or so. I just can't stand to look at a spreadsheet any more tonight. Albums start tomorrow. Maybe not until night, though. Top 40 for sure on Sunday.

Umbrella losing? I have been foiled in my predictions again, to my delight. Exellent, Paulito.

Thanks for upping all those Paul. Let us know if you ever need anything. And I mean anything.

halfway through my first time of "umbrella" i switched to rivers cuomo, which was right underneath it :huh:
does that make me rockist?

Yes.

There's a reason they called that album Alone. Because they should have left those songs alone.

Off the top I'm only upset about "Boy With a Coin" not getting in, it's probably the catchiest most single-like song that Iron & Wine will ever manage.

It just missed at #178.

If Kanye ever builds a track around a New Order sample, we can just skip having a poll, right?

Boo, no Muscles. Not much of a hope for him on the albums list either. Surprised "Underdog" was so high.

I was really kind of hoping AMF wasn't going to be #1, just because I didn't want my shitty blurb do adorn it. Oh well. Cool list. That UGK song is overrated. Fucking awesome job by Paul.

Only 3 tracks missed the list from my Top Ten
sad
:(

surprised Ryan Adams didnt get love
also i saw Shout Out Louds "Tonite i have to leave it" on other lists besides mine
must've been close

I wish there was more love for:
Jimmy Eat World - Big Casino
Muse - Starlight
Kenna - Out of Control

Thank You Paul

"After much thought into this, I have finally come to a conclusion as to why the ‘Meet the Spartans’ commercial is so funny:

It is an interesting choice to have Sanjaya sing ‘I’m not gay,’ as his final words on earth. As he is plummeting into a seemingly bottomless pit, he does not say ‘dear god no,’ ‘I love you mom,’ or even simply ‘argh.’ He instead takes the moment to reaffirm to the world, in spite of their doubts, that he is not a homosexual. Not only that, but he continues to sing, despite falling to his certain death. The distinct lack of plausibility of this situation is what produces giggles from our mouth. It is the antithesis to the belief that ‘it’s funny because it is true.’

it's kind of shocking that you could go this long without hearing it :o

i didn't hear it until the other day when someone posted it for me on SOMB. and i definitely don't go out of my way at all to avoid pop culture, but i also don't watch TV more than maybe 3-4 hours a week tops (of which a chunk of that is the news), and when i do it' almost all Tivo'd.

Minneapolis has really good radio so if i do ever listen to radio (maybe an hour a week?) it's 89.3 The Current, which is fairly diverse but definitely no top 40 stuff. oh, and i avoid the mall like the plague :lol: . so like i asked earlier in the thread, i guess if i actively checked out the Billboard charts and downloaded those songs i'd hear them, otherwise there's just not much chance for stuff like that to ever enter into my ears unless someone tells me i need to hear something.

definitely not a conscious effort or elitism, etc. for me either, just no real chance for exposure.

i also have no clue who/what UGK is other than the acronym reminds me of Ugly Kid Joe.

I voted for "Big Casino," can't say I had much expectation of it making it though. I should probably have pimped the Villalobos "Cell Phone's Dead" or something.
