Re: The Obituary Thread

One of the greatest French actors passed away recently, Michel Piccoli, aged 94. He broke out in Jean-Luc Godard's Le Mépris in the early 60's, and soon became the favorite actor of some of the best European filmmakers, Bunuel, Ferreri, Sautet... Ironically, Sautet's regular screenwriter and dialogi...

Re: Top 100 Songs of the Millennium (2000-2019) - #10-2

#7 Geezer, Lucero, Nights Like These That sounds very American, but in a pretty good way.He pushes a little too much on the voice, but it's very pleasant overall. John, My Morning Jacket, The Way That He Sings What does that remind me of, in the chorus ? I can't remember. Not really something I'll g...

Re: Top 100 Songs of the Millennium (2000-2019) - #10-2

Chien - I only know of Woodkid from that song, it's on my all-time playlist. It was on a random playlist posted on Reddit years ago and I've been listening ever since. I had no idea he was French though. Edit: actually I should've been tipped off he was French because I found him in this sub - http...

Re: Top 100 Songs of the Millennium (2000-2019) - #10-2

Damn I'm late on my appreciations. Here comes #8 Geezer, Lucero, Here at the Starlite I can see the appeal, pretty solid soft rock. A bit too long. John, William Shatner - Common People What was that ? Too Canadian for me ;) Leestu, Pond, Giant Tortoise Not bad. Not sure it will stick with me long. ...

Re: Top 100 Songs of the Millennium (2000-2019) - #10-2

Benjamin Biolay, Ton Héritage - first listen...this seems to have copped an unfair reaction here, I found this to be quite an interesting piece of music and a little bit more unique than most chanson française I've heard, maybe I respond to the singer/songwriter vibe here (despite not understanding...

#9 Geezer, Jimmy Eat World, Hear You Me John used the word polished, and it seems like the right one to me. It's very listenable, but it's too polished. John, The Tragically Hip, My Music At Work Meh. Nothing really special for me. Leestu, Silversun Pickups, Lazy Eye I like the intro, but the whole ...

#10 Geezer, The Airborne Toxic Event, Sometime Around Midnight Didn't know that song before the countdown, but I've really grown to love it now, great choice. John, Steve Earle, Burnin' It Down I don't understand all the lyrics so it doesn't really work for me beyond the simple guitar ballad. It's n...

#11 Geezer, Against Me!, We Did It All For Don I can't say I appreciate the way this song is sung, the voice unnerves me quite a bit and ruins the song for me. John, Sparks, She Got Me Pregnant This has a very musical sound, it sounds out of a Broadway show. There's something very staged about it th...

#12 Geezer, The Menzingers, Gates A very pleasant song. Good rhythm, good mood. John, Jason Isbell, Songs That She Sang In The Shower Nice voice and good music, I like that. Leestu, My Chemical Romance, Welcome To The Black Parade I was abit scared of the shouts when they started, but it doesn't hur...

Re: Top 100 Songs of the Millennium (2000-2019) - #20-11

Chien, Benjamin Biolay - I apologise in advance, but while I appreciate the effort you have made in translating the lyrics, unfortunately it sounds like Europop, and dare I say I would not be surprised if it was a Eurovison entry. Not for me. This is the funniest and most unexpected comment I have ...

#13 Geezer, Blink-182, Stay Together For the Kids Don't think I'd heard that one of Blink 182, but I don't know them well, and aren't especially a fan so... Anyway, I guess it's listenable, but not enough to make me ant to hear it again. John, Iron & Wine, Naked As We Came Another nice one of Iron &...

#14 Geezer, Jeff Rosenstock, You, In Weird Cities Meh, it's not bad, but it's too much in a hurry for me. John, eels, Things The Grandchildren Should Know I was this close to including a song by Eels on my list. I regretted I didn't in the end, so I'm glad someone shows some love for this great band...

#15 Geezer, Against Me!, Because of the Shame Even though this isn't the kind of stuff I'd listen just for me, it's definitely easy to listen, pretty nice. John, Lucinda Williams, Sweet Side I don't always like those nosy voices à la Bob Dylan. I'm not sure I like it here. The song in itself ain't b...
