  1. Yeah, I usually do.

     

    Listening to TVOTR do 'Heroes'. Decent fun. Certainly helps me blot out the criminal version that Kasabian (I think) churned out for the Euro 2008 coverage. Dear God.

     

    The Magnetic Fields did a version of Heroes, too. It sounds like most of their early work, but I don't mind, the sound suits the song well enough.

     

    Still, I don't really think people should be covering Heroes. Resist your urges.


  2. True story: Morrissey is coming back to Kansas City on the two year anniversary of the murder of my roommate's mother. The roommate with the "Viva Moz" tattoo on his wrist.

     

    Besides the fact that a grown man will be openly sobbing all over me, I'm looking forward to seeing him again.

     

    A warning - one of the best songs on the new album is the thunderous 'Mama lay softly on the riverbed'. So enjoy that one.

     

    Great song. I think he's gonna lose it the most to National Front Disco, though.


  3. I'm going to make a new list of ten favorite songs without even looking at my old one. In no order:

    Mickey & Sylvia - Love Is Strange

    The Left Banke - Walk Away Renee


  4. 1. Guided By Voices - Bee Thousand

    2. Tom Waits - Rain Dogs

    3. Galaxie 500 - On Fire

    4. Leonard Cohen - Songs Of Love & Hate

    5. The Smiths - The Queen Is Dead

    A few spots of overlap. This is just off the top of my head, too.
