There are 2 songs by Sebadoh and U2 that I've heard years ago which I'd like to hear again. The one by Sebadoh I'm fairly sure was on some EP I haven't been able to track down online. The one by U2 is from another EP my brother has (or used to have), so I should ask him. It was played on the radio.

Trapt- Headstrong
30 Seconds to Mars - Welcome to the Universe (actually the whole first album isn't half bad-yeah, the lyrics suck, but there are some good riffs/arrangements, and Jared Leto actually sings like he's got balls for the most part)
the newest song by Flyleaf (can't think of its name)
White Town- Your Woman (a textbook example of a one hit wonder's one hit being their only good song)
Orgy- Stitches
Finger Eleven- Paralyzer
Soft Cell- Tainted Love
Sum 41- Still Waiting
Dave Matthews Band- Don't Drink the Water
the Temptations- Papa Was a Rolling Stone (OK, I get it's blasphemous to admit you don't like the Temptations in some circles, but I just can't get into them all that much)

Glice 08.01.2010 06:27 PM

You'd pick one of the worst Girls Aloud songs for this list? Crikey.

Edit: not GK, obviously.

Also, foxben, "washer" by slint? Interesting..

Ok, there are actually TWO songs by Pavement I like ("Grounded" and "Gold Soundz"), but I think it'll qualify

Well, yeah, since I don't like Spiderland and they released only two LP's, I guess it's not a band that I like very much... But, seriously, "Washer", it's a very good song actually, I could have put "the ending to Good Morning Captain" too.

90s indie special:

Stereophonics - Local boy in the photograph
60ft dolls - Happy Shopper
Bennet - Mum's gone to Iceland
Symposium - Drink the Sunshine
Ocean Colour Scene - The Riverboat Song (I completely missed how brilliant the drums are on this at the time)
Stone Roses - I am the Resurrection
Deus - Roses
Imperial Teen - You're a one
Ultrasound - Floodlit world
3 colours red - Nuclear Holiday

Honorary mention to Tiger's Shining in the Wood. I still quite like them in spite of evidence that they were probably a bit cack.

Actually, most of these are a bit cack really, aren't they? I was at a party on Friday with a load of kids who were 20-odd. They were all going on about how great the 90s were for music. I should really have given them a slap.

Edit: I was also trying to find a jangly indie number but I couldn't remember the name of the band - the chorus went 'she longs to be seen/ she's the summer holiday queen/ sitting in a cheap bikini/ swimming in the dirty sea' - anyone remember that one?

Edit 2: It was Posh, but I can't remember what the song was called. Boo.

Glice 08.02.2010 05:45 AM

Found it. Thanks, Google!

Edit: FUCK ME that's aged badly. I'm never being a teenager with a record player again.

Haha, yeah, I've noticed that it's a crime to dislike Spiderland :D Yeah, I dislike Spiderland and I like King of the Beach, how about that ? :)

atsonicpark 08.02.2010 08:22 AM

No crime, just bizarre. But to each their own. You'll come around! I've been obsessed with spiderland for ... in a few years, it'll be half my life... just... whoa.
