Sweet. I was surprised by the picks and it wouldn't be that out of place, but that's cool. Thanks for the attention in doing that. I didn't want it kicking off the list over more of the Ten type stuff and rockers.

We've got a few of those, but I'm not surprised this crowd went for some of the more obscure and related-band tracks.

Nor I, actually. I didn't have my finger on the pulse of the PJ love here. They've honestly never been a favorite of mine. I have a lot of respect for them and certainly did my time with Ten, though. I remember they opened for the Smashing Pumpkins and Red Hot Chili Peppers in late '91 at the Springfield Civic Center in Massachusetts. Eddie Vedder announced to the crowd that it was fitting nobody was there for them because he thought they had maxed out their fame, anyway. Whoops. By the time they had put out their later albums, I was fully back into the punk of my youth and regarded them as sort of an anomaly with their popularity and fame. The slower tempo music and baritone vocals didn't do me it for and I wondered what everyone else saw in it.

Round 60

The Joint

Easy All Stars (Feat. Toots & the Maytals) - Let Down

:wub:

Most covers of RH songs are a bit off the mark for me, but this one is something else. I should preface this by saying Toots Hibbert is one of my favorite vocalists of all time--regardless of genre. And in my estimation this is one of his best studio performances. the dissonance between the bouncy, head-bob inducing beat and crushing lyrics about urban ennui and alienation works. and there's boost of hope in Toots' delivery. This is one of my favorite RH songs as well, and the final verse climax is the rug that ties the room together in each. In this version, Toots lays it all out.

I was convinced I knew the melody line of his vocals and didn't realize it was a Radiohead cover, even though I read your post and was confused what "RH" meant. Ah, now I see. So then...:unsure:

On the plus side, you realize how good OK Computer is when it can completely cross genres and still sound so compelling and immediate.

I was massively obsessed with them during the frenzy over Ten and Vs. But something about how they handled the Ticketmaster situation rubbed me the wrong way (not that TM was blameless either), and parts of Vitalogy and pretty much all of No Code seemed like deliberate attempts to repudiate what made them great in the first place. So by the late 90s there were no longer front-and-center for me, though I liked Yield. Then Binaural came out and I thought it was mostly hot garbage, and they became even less of a priority. 

I did devote more attention to them in '03 after someone gave me a ticket to see them live for the first time. The show was amazing and Eddie was funny and affable (and probably a little drunk), the exact opposite of the persona he adopted in the '90s that I had grown so annoyed with. I went twice more in 2006, though as much because My Morning Jacket was opening. I thought Riot Act and the self-titled album were OK, but in retrospect their main attributes are that they are better than Binaural, which is a low bar to clear. Then I met my wife and a lot of things fell by the wayside pop culture-wise, PJ being one of them.

Too bad about Binaural.  I'm a headphone guy and binaural recordings are cool.

Ah, he might be right, then.  I accused him of heresy because you would have known that already.

Neil's new material since 2012 has been so blah that I just check a couple times a year to see what stuff he has released (new or archival) since I last obtained anything. I don't follow/participate in any Neil forums or seek out Neil news in real time. I was a little more up to date when I was doing the countdown because I would come across stuff when I was preparing my writeups, but that's an anomaly for me in recent years. 

If he says anything odd about pre-2013 Neil, you can tell him I said he committed heresy. 😆

This song is from the album The Fantastic Expedition of Dillard & Clark. I think most know who Gene Clark is/was, and for those unfamiliar with Doug Dillard, he was in the bluegrass band The Dillards (who were known as The Darlings on the Andy Griffith Show).  It's a really good country/bluegrassy/rock album from '68.

Had two different songs in my top 10 with almost the same name :oldunsure:

@krista4 would be so proud - my top 5 bands I listened to were:

1.  Opeth

2.  Lord Huron

3.  The Beatles  :oldunsure:

4.  Gojira 

5.  Run the Jewels  

 

I was really surprised Pink Floyd and Talking Heads weren't on there.    4 of the top 5 songs were from my 5 year old's playlist, but I guess we listened to a lot less Frozen OST this year, as We Will Rock You, HandClap, Jump were on there instead.   Meet Me In the Woods was the only one of my songs in the top 5.  

 

I was at 27,000 hours and somehow discovered 247 new artists (I assume mostly due to music drafts??)  and listened to 371 genres (how is that possible?)

The Sporify year end review is so cool. My top 5 artists of the year were 

1. Ennio Morricone

2. Van Morrison

3. Smokey Robinson and the Miracles

4. Big Thief

5. Roxy Music

215 new genres, 935 new artists and 72,000 minutes. Spotify is the best money I spend.

My end of year stats

17619 minutes

Top 5 artists

1- Clutch

2- Paul McCartney

3- Rolling Stones

4- Monster Magnet

5- Van Halen

Top songs were all by Clutch. Mostly because they are the only artist I've bothered to make a playlist for and it's my go to for lawn mowing and housework. Supposedly listened to 306 genres but damned if I could name more than a couple dozen.

I'm not getting a top 5 artists list. Maybe because I don't spring for premium or maybe because I "only" had 3,704 minutes. I do most of my listening on Youtube.

ETA: Or maybe because I don't have the app. 

Top 5 songs:

Jackie Blue -- The Ozark Mountain Daredevils

Earthquake Weather -- Beck

Out of the Blue -- Elton John

Race for the Prize -- The Flaming Lips

Dream Weaver -- Gary Wright

I'm not getting a top five either, and I have Premium. I am getting a missed hits of 2020 list, which are songs that I have been pegged by the algorithm to like. Songs?

First up is BALD! - JPEGMANIA. Pretty cool glitch-pop sample or something. Not bad.

Action Bronson is second with Latin Grammys. I was never able to get into White Ghostface. Great sample, boring lyrics.

Third up is Black Thought. Thought vs. Everybody. I indeed like this, but who couldn't have predicted that.

Four is Sins Of The Father by Ra, Roc Marci. I think they thing I like vocal samples and Wu Tang. I do, but it's not a top four song or even close, really.

Five is Dangerookipawa Freestyle by Ab-Soul. Holy #### they got it! Never heard it, would have missed it. Love it.

So I guess Rock Action fails me as a name. I didn't realize I was Rap Action.

Rd 61: East Side Story by Bob Seger and The Last Heard

Nice. Never heard this or even heard of it. Would seem appropriate that Seger would catch top billing in name alone even though the band really takes center stage here, IMO.

Me First and the Gimmes Gimmes. Still love that send-up every time I see a ____ and the _____

But for 1966-7? This is forward thinking. Thank God full psychedelia isn't in full bloom and we get spared a farfisa solo or something like that. 2:37 on the edit, baby. Love it.

Seger headlined a few bands around Detroit and Ann Arbor before the Silver Bullet Band. The Bob Seger System was a big one, he also did shows just as Bob Seger. He was a known musical commodity in SE Mich long before he has 70s radio breakout. He even started out doing shows as small as Homecoming dances for high schools when he was really young.

Round 61

Till Victory - Patti Smith (Underground Garage)

I hear a song that could have been Blondie's here. I'm probably sucked into a place, time, similarity/dissimilar vortex here, but I hear Debbie Harry's influence in this. Or is that the other way around?

🤔

eta* My YouTuve algorithm, seeing as how we're discussing algos, skipped directly to Television's "See No Evil" as the next song, with the whole of Marquee Moon in tow. Not a bad 1-2 punch.
