Re: Five very extensive relistens of albums I heard 10 years ago and forgot every song
You didn't remember "Everybody's Happy Nowadays", skating a fine line between affirmation and repetition, "Ever Fallen in Love?" kicks all sorts of ass (now you need to check out the shitty FYC -- Fine Young Cannibals, not #### You Crew -- version. Slowed down, synthed-up, with that weird-sounding singer of theirs). What's so great about "Why Can't I Touch It"? Never understood the appeal and it goes on for like ten minutes. I've always adored Singles Going Steady but, now that you mention it, I'm drawing a blank on the whole back half. But "Orgasm Addict"? Really?
There are like 50 Pretty Things tracks on Nuggets II, which I've downloaded but haven't gotten to yet. I might just take a moratorium on new music after my forthcoming record-store run. Might just have to!
