Butter's Music Massacre
« Reply #150 on: November 06, 2006, 03:07:40 PM »

529-540:

Femme Fatale – REM
Feng Shui – Gnarls Barkley
*Fight Test – Flaming Lips
*Fighting in a Sack – Shins
Fighting in Built Up Areas – Ladytron
*Final Arrears – Mull Historical Society
Final Straw – REM
Finally Woken – Jem
*Find the River – REM
Finest Worksong – REM
Fire – Ladytron
Fire Coming Out of a Monkey’s Head – Gorillaz

541-550:

Fire with Fire – Gossip
Fireplace – REM

Firesuite – Doves
The First Five Times – Stars
First Gear – The Rapture
*First it Giveth – Queens of the Stone Age
First to Finish, Last to Start – Ted Leo and the Pharmacists
Fit But You Know It – The Streets
*The Fitted Shirt – Spoon
Fitter Happier – Radiohead

Fitter Happier, but it’s not making me more productive.  In fact, it annoys the fuck out of me.

551-560:

Fix You – Coldplay
Flake – Jack Johnson
Flicking Your Switch – Ladytron
Flight Tonight – Avalanches
Flint – Sufjan Stevens
*Float On – Modest Mouse
The Flowers of Guatemala – REM
*Folk Song – Sundays
Fool – Neutral Milk Hotel
For the Price of a Cup of Tea – Belle & Sebastian

561-570:

For the Widows in Paradise, for the Fatherless… - Sufjan Stevens
For Tomorrow – Blur
For What It’s Worth – Cardigans
A Forest – Cure
Forever Surrender to You – We Ragazzi

Four Kicks – Kings of Leon
*Fox Confessor Brings the Flood – Neko Case
Free Radicals – Flaming Lips
Fritz’s Corner – Local H
*From Blown Speakers – New Pornographers

For Tomorrow… man, that song drags.  Blur, I’m discovering, was a real hit or miss type of deal.

Forever I used to like… but I listened to it twice here and I was unmoved.  CUT!

I liked the newest Flaming Lips album upon the first couple of listens, but I never found myself compelled to go back and listen to it like I had been with Yoshimi.  Too bad, because I was very excited to get my hands on this one.

571-580:

*From My Own True Love – Decemberists
From Rusholme with Love – Mint Royale
From Safety to Where – Joy Division
From the Ritz to the Rubble – Arctic Monkeys

Frontier Psychiatrist – Avalanches
*Funny Little Frog – Belle & Sebastian
Futures – Zero 7
F-Word – Jens Lekman
Galaxy Bounce – Chemical Brothers
Games You Play – Splashdown

My heart started racing as I noticed Frontier Psychiatrist was coming closer to playing.  I had to skip it.

Does B&S know that “throat” and “poet” don’t rhyme?  And it doesn’t count if you WAY mispronounce “throat” on purpose in order to make it work.  Yet I still gave it 5 stars, so I guess the joke’s on me.

581-590:

Gangster Tripping – Fatboy Slim
Gardening at Night – REM
Gardening at Night (acoustic) – REM
Gardening at Night (live) – REM
Geezers Need Excitement – Streets

*Genius of Love – Tom Tom Club
*Get a Shot of the Refrigerator – Stereolab
Get in or Get Out – Hot Hot Heat
Get Myself into It – Rapture
*Get Up on it Like This – Chemical Brothers

I’m boring in preferring the studio version of Gardening, I know.

591-600:

*Ghost – Neutral Milk Hotel
Ghost Sound – Air
Ghost Town – The Specials
The Ghosts Around You – Longwave
Gideon – My Morning Jacket
Girl – Beck
Girl from Mars – Ash
*Girl Inform Me – Shins
Girl is on My Mind – Black Keys
Girl on the Wing – Shins

A good but not great group of songs rounds out the day.

Quote from: "Jonathan"
I do like the QotSA song, but the real surprise for me is your trashing of "Fake Plastic Trees".

What up wit dat?


Are you joking or did you not read my comments in the "Feedback Song" Torturethon thread?

I don't remember you talking about that.

I agree with Fitter Happier, though. And the non-rhyming couplet in Funny Little Frog has always annoyed the crap out of me, too.

601-610:

Girl You Have No Faith in Medicine – White Stripes
Girlfriend in a Coma – The Smiths

Girls & Boys – Blur
Glamorous Glue – Morrissey
Glass – Joy Division
*The Gloaming – Radiohead
Glory Box – Portishead
*Glosoli – Sigur Ros
Glue Your Eyelids Together – Adult
*Go Go Gadget Gospel – Gnarls Barkley

The opening to this White Stripes song is a bit too reminiscent of Positive Bleeding by Urge Overkill.  Not a new problem for Jack White, as one of his Raconteurs songs straight up copies the opening of a Joe Jackson song.

611-620:

Go it Alone – Beck
Go Ask Your Dad – The Tyde
*Go to Sleep – Radiohead
*Go with the Flow – QotSA
God Put a Smile Upon Your Face – Coldplay
Goin’ On – Flaming Lips
Gold Lion – Yeah Yeah  Yeahs
Golden – My Morning Jacket
The Golden Gate – John Vanderslice
*Goldfinger – Ash

621-630:

Gone Daddy Gone – Gnarls Barkley
Gone Daddy Gone – Violent Femmes
*Gone for Good – Shins
Gong – Sigur Ros
Gonna Leave You – QotSA
Good Advices – REM
Good for You’s Good for Me – Walkmen

*Good Fortune – PJ Harvey
A Good Horse – Cardigans
*The Good Times are Killing Me – Modest Mouse

It’s not so much that the Gnarls Barkley cover of the Violent Femmes song is BAD, so much as it is too similar.  Why cover the song if you’re aiming to make it sound virtually the same?

631-640:

Goodbye – Asobi Seksu
Goodnight Goodnight – Hot Hot Heat
Gouge Away – Pixies
*Grace – Jeff Buckley
Grace Cathedral Hill – Decemberists
The Great Beyond – REM
*Great Divide – Cardigans
Green Eyes – Coldplay
Green Grow the Rushes – REM
Grounds for Divorce – Wolf Parade


I blame Nate for me getting this Wolf Parade album.  I never even would’ve bothered if it hadn’t rated so highly in last year’s WOXY poll.  Hey, as it turns out, a lot of WOXY boarders like crap (see also: Clap Your Hands Say Yeah).

641-650:

Grown So Ugly – Black Keys
*The Guns of Brixton – Clash
*Haiti – Arcade Fire
Half Day Closing – Portishead
Halfworld – Splashdown
*Hand in Glove – Smiths
Hands – Raconteurs
Hang on Siobhan – Walkmen

*Hangin’ Tree – QotSA
The Hanging Garden - Cure

So, is The Arcade Fire ever coming out with another album?  This one is wearing out.  Brilliant, but aging fast.

651-660:

Happy – Wrens
*Happy to Hang Around – Travis
*Harborcoat – REM
*Hard Row – Black Keys
*The Hardest Button to Button – White Stripes
The Hardest Part – Coldplay
*Harrowdown Hill – Thom Yorke
Has it Come to This – Streets
*Hate to Say I Told You So – Hives
*Have a Good Sleep – Hot Hot Heat

Wowsers, Inspector Gadget.  That’s a lot of stars.

661-670:

Have Love Will Travel – Black Keys
Haven’t Got a Clue – Flaming Lips
He Lays in the Reins – Iron & Wine/Calexico

He Lied About Death – Stars
He Took Her to a Movie – Ladytron
He War – Cat Power
Head Down – Soundgarden
Head Up High – BRMC
Heart and Soul – T’Pau Joy Division
Heart in a Cage – Strokes

Quote from: "Juliana"

yeah, it makes me cringe every time.

I've also noticed that quite a few Cardigans tracks seem to be getting the axe. And Buzz seems to be right about the Lips, too


I wholeheartedly agree on Gone Daddy Gone, though. Thats one song off the Gnarls Barkley album that I just never managed to dig that much

Nah, Buttman is doing good with the Lips.  It's just that a lot of their stuff is kinda out there, especially if you're not listening to the whole album.  They've got a lot of songs that don't stand well alone.

Bah! Both of those albums are awesome and my favorites of 2005 (along with The National). You just don't know what you're talking about. :)

Bollocks.

Butter is a gentleman and a scholar. And a musical genius, apart from the whole "Fake Plastic Trees" thing.

671-680:

*Heartbreaker – Cardigans
*Hearts of Oak – Ted Leo…
*Heated Pool and Bar – John Vanderslice
Heaven – Rapture
Heaven Knows I’m Miserable Now – Smiths
Heavenly Junkie – Kent
*Heavy Metal Drummer – Wilco
Helicopter – Bloc Party
*Hell – Squirrel Nut Zippers
*Hell Yes – Beck

I thought the Squirrel Nut Zippers would be around for a while…but you get like 16 musicians together, and I guess when they get a tiny bit of success it tends to force them apart.

681-690:

Here Comes Your Man (Live) – Pixies
*Here Comes Your Man – Pixies
*Here I Dreamt I Was an Architect – Decemberists
*Here it Comes – Doves
Hey (live)  – Pixies
Hey There Fancypants – Ween
Hey You – Basement Jaxx
Heysatan – Sigur Ros
High and Dry – Pete Kuzma f/Bilal
High and Dry – Radiohead

The live version of the first Pixies song is superfluous AFAIC.  At least to my collection it is.  And the 2nd one just isn’t that good.

So, I wonder if Sigur Ros realizes they titled this song “Hey Satan” in English.  Reminiscent of the hockey player Miroslav Satan… my wife once asked why the guy’s name was Satan.  I had to explain that it’s pronounced “Shuh-TAN”… but I did also have to agree that it was good for a chuckle when saying things like “Satan had a hot game tonight!”

The remake of Radiohead’s High and Dry actually wasn’t that bad, but it clocks in at nearly 6 minutes long.  The original was already about 30 seconds too long at just over 4 minutes.  That’s the kiss of death.  Then you’ve got the whole R&B singing style that’s overdone, and that’s the double death.

691-700:

*The High Party – Ted Leo…
*High Rise – Ladytron
*High School Lovers – Air
High Speed Train – REM
Hillbilly Motorbike – Stereolab

History of Lovers – Iron & Wine/Calexico
Hoist that Rag – Tom Waits
*Hold Me in Your Arms – Black Keys
Hold On, Hold On – Neko Case
Holding Me Up – Dandy Warhols

I don’t mind High Speed Train, but that’s not exactly the prescription for good music… it being something I don’t hate.

Tom Waits’ voice sounds like it’s filled with knives and gravel.  

Holding is not inherently a bad song, but it drones way on past the point of where it should end… over 7 minutes long.

701-710:

Holland – Sufjan Stevens
*Holland, 1945 – Neutral Milk Hotel
Holy Water – Gossip
*Home Again Garden Grove – Mountain Goats
*Homeland – Stellastarr
Homeward – Sundays
Honeybear – Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Hoops – Chemical Brothers
Hoppipolla – Sigur Ros
The Horizon Has Been Defeated – Jack Johnson

Here are a couple of nifty lyrics from this Jack Johnson song:

Thingamajigsaw puzzled
Anger don't you step too close
Because people are lonely and only
Animals with fancy shoes
Hallelujah zig zag nothing
Misery it's on the loose
Because people are lonely and only
Animals with too many tools
That can build all the junk that we sell
Aw sometimes man makes you want to yell

He had to be stoned out of his mind when he wrote this song.

711-720:

Horn Intro – Modest Mouse
The Horrible Fanfare/Landslide/Exoskeleton – Beck
Horses in My Dream – PJ Harvey
Hotel Yorba – White Stripes

Hours – TV on the Radio
*A House – Doves
*House of Jealous Lovers – Rapture
The House that Guilt Built – Wrens
How Does it Make You Feel – Air
How Many Hearts – Travis

This Beck song (songs?) is 10:36… but very interesting.  I actually like listening to most of it, though the talky part at the end is skippable.  I imagine it would be a good song to listen to high.

I guess I’m officially sick of The White Stripes, as this song bugged the crap out of me today.  And I used to like it.  I guess I shouldn’t trash it just based on today’s mood, but this is the procedure I have chosen.  Chop chop.

721-730:

*How Soon is Now – Smiths
*How to Disappear Completely – Radiohead
*Human Behaviour – Bjork
*Humming – Portishead
*Hunter – Bjork
Hurt Like Mine – Black Keys
Hustle Rose – Metric
*Hyena – REM
Hypnotise – White Stripes
Hysteria – Def Leppard Muse

731-736:

I am Trying to Break Your Heart – Wilco
I Believe – REM
I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor – Arctic Monkeys
I Bleed – Pixies
I Can Learn – White Stripes

*I Can’t Wait – Sundays

Wow, two Ted Leo songs kept.

I didn't know you liked Squirel Nut Zippers.  I have one of their later albums that's really good (a copy is yours if you want)  Are they broken up?  I didn't know.

If they're not broken up, then several members left a long while back.

Well, I checked the Wiki, and I guess that they're not officially broken up, but yeah, they're pretty well broken up.
