SOMB Says: “I’ll be the corpse in your bathtub”
"They're pacing Piccadilly in packs again"
“I've been working on a cocktail called Grounds for Divorce"

No one blows off the front doors of a song quite like Elbow. They want to be your sledghammer, the light, the heat emminating with every glorious chorus.
Though Guy Garvey's life may be in a rut, he still thinks of what to say, which connection he should cut. He's feeling part of the scenery (frosty and bright, perfect weather to fly)...he walks right out of the machinery (tower crane driver, there's not so far to go)...his heart going "boom, boom, boom", cause "holy cow, he loves your eyes".....
...so grab your things he's going to take you home...then again, you just might have to wait, cause he's got an audience with the pope, and he's saving the world at 8. - Elemeno P.T.

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

my names already come up a couple times on this countdown and i've posted plenty this whole countdown about what albums "should be higher imo" and which are terrible.

unfortunately you just came in now like the dude who shows up to the game at halftime w/ a foam dome on their head and asking "which team is the chicago bear"

And Theremin thought none of his list would make it!

Well, let me tell you, he was wrong! He was dead fucking wrong!!!

Well, you do have a Killers avatar......
Every Sunday morning I wake up
I see you by your dresser doing your make-up
Fluttering a Chinese fan in a Knoxville fashion
All last night you tossed and turned
Your body was hotter than the night Richmond burned
You say you had a bad nightmare about tractor trailers crashing

Doors cover band.

Who in their right mind thought this was better than Chinese Democracy? You voted for a third rate Doors cover band while bypassing a true rock original. Shameful.

I thought Chinese Democracy was terrible and even I can get behind this statement.

Two blacks in a row!!!


Keeping them segregated?
