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

Round 6 thoughts Chien, Woodkid - It was nice enough, for some reason I can imagine Florence and the Machine doing something like this, but it never really grabbed me like I hoped. Geezer, Green Day - I always feel like this era of Green Day is forgotten, it kind of fell in between their earlier po...

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

Round 7 thoughts Another really enjoyable round. Chien, Daft Punk - Probably my favourite song from Daft Punk, has a great rhythm to it, I remember thinking these guys were the future of dance music when this came out, and while that isn't totally the case, they have influenced a lot of the music w...

Round 8 thoughts For the most part really enjoyed this round. Chien, Sufjan Stevens - Really lovely song that complemented the film beautifully. I could listen to Sufjan all day, he has such a way with lyrics and his vocals are so comforting. Geezer, Lucero - Lucero have been one of the highlights ...

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

Round 9 thoughts Chien, Benjamin Biolay - Even discounting the French language and lyrics, it just sounds like a stereotypical French song, which I think I have ascertained by now, is not for me. Geezer, Jimmy Eat World - It seems the only Jimmy Eat World songs you like are the softer ones, and whi...

Round 10 thoughts Chien, The White Stripes - When it was first released, I liked the song but felt it lacked the rawness of their earlier work. I still enjoy it quite a lot, it has a great video and the riff is undeniably catchy. And btw, although it's being picky, but Jack never played bass on the...

Round 11 thoughts Chien, Anthony and the Johnsons - I think it was yourself who posted a song from Anthony in the past, but this served as a reminder that I must listen to this album, it was sublime. Vocally, musically, a real joy from start to finish, and definitely had a hint of Lou Reed too, whi...

Round 12 thoughts Not a great round for me, unfortunately. Glad someone picked Cloud Nothings to keep things awesome... 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 ...

Round 13 thoughts Chien, Gary Jules and Michael Andrews - I don't know, I kind of like the Tears For Fears song because it's a little cheesy and has that new wave sound to it which adds a little eerieness to it. This just felt like they took the song and said, 'we're gonna take this song and tell e...

Round 14 thoughts Chien, David Byrne - I must admit, beyond his collaboration with St. Vincent, I haven't really listened to much of David Byrne's relatively recent offerings. Really enjoyed this one. Don't know if anyone caught him in the John Mulaney sketch tv movie last year, but he was right up...

Round 15 thoughts Chien, Alex Beaupain - Sometimes simplicity does work, I have certainly got my own dose of that on my list. Unfortunately, despite the addition of the lyrics, the emotion in the vocals just wasn't there to really draw me in. Geezer, Against Me! - Man, I was certain that was Spring...

Round 16 thoughts Chien, Metric - After the Metric song yesterday which I quite enjoyed, this was even better. Kind of like a clash between Echo and The Bunnymen and Bloc Party (coincidentally my pick for today) with a lot of funk. Thoroughly enjoyed it and will definitely add them up to the top of...

Round 17 thoughts Chien, La La Land - I have watched the film three times and I can honestly say I forget this song even exists each time, it literally leaves no impression on me. There are better songs on the soundtrack, and as six mentions, Emma Stone's voice is not strong enough to lead an entir...

Round 18 thoughts Despite playing on shuffle, the playlist placed M83, MGMT and Big Data one after another and they segwayed perfectly into one another. Love how things like that happen without intent. Chien, Les Innocents - This was again a lovely, dream like song. Geezer, Red City Radio - Very yo...

Lol...I made the playlist and forgot to post it.
Thanks Surfer!
Ha! No problem, it's my preferred way to listen to the songs each round and you have, alongside Shryke done an excellent job thus far.
