Oh, and there will not be any spoilers about who is and isn't in my top 1000. So hold out hope for your favorite band. If it doesn't make it, they probably suck.
Can you answer this: In the #1 song's video does anybody or anything get arrested?
You may see that along the way.
No idea why you'd think it would be #1.
Maybe it will be on the list! Nevertheless, I hereby release you and your heirs, successors, and assigns from any and all obligations to record the excellent Kinks song "This Time Tomorrow" until such time as you have recorded all 1000 of shuke's songs.
Actually this thread has gone so quickly that I had already given up on listening to everything and resigned myself to using it only to find karaoke suggestions for you!
You have ALL DAY TOMORROW to listen to these.Shuke ...can you slow down a bit?
Voice reminds me of a mellow Viloent Femmes too.996. Pilot Speed - Barely Listening
Although I'm posting youtube links for all these, for some songs I think the video really distracts from the song itself. This is one of them.
A little Radiohead vibe from 2:30-3:00.
Also, don't expect huge writeups for every song here. I've got 1000 to do.

Shuke & Rita990. Rita Coolidge - Higher and Higher
Going to be a lot of nostalgia in here. While my dad had a pretty cool 60's/70's record collection, he also listened to a lot of pop in the 70's and 80's. He would occasionally DJ weddings and other events so I heard all this stuff all the time. And you wouldn't believe how he got most of the music he used for these gigs. He used cassettes. But he didn't have 1000's of cassettes that he bought, but a bunch of mix tapes. A lot were made by borrowing from friends and using this dual tape deck. But I also remember a lot of times where he'd have the radio on with the play/record and pause buttons down on the tape machine. He'd hear a few notes and come running into the living room to hit the pause button. True story.
Love this song, still in my regular rotation - since like 5th grade.I was always planning on starting the countdown with a shticky song or two to break the ice. I had one slated in this spot for years but I had to bump it out recently because I needed the room.
As for this song, I'm almost positive someone posted it on this board. Without remembering who, I'll just assume @McJose.
Yes the lyrics are ridiculous and her voice can be grating, but this beat is contagious and stays in my head for days after hearing it.
1000. Suburban Lawns -- Janitor
From wiki: "Suburban Lawns were an American post-punk band formed in Long Beach, California in 1978 by CalArts students William "Vex Billingsgate" Ranson and Sue "Su Tissue" McLane. They later recruited Richard "Frankie Ennui" Whitney, Charles "Chuck Roast" Rodriguez, and John "John Gleur" McBurney."
