61-70:

Almost Forgot Myself – Doves
Alone Again Or – Calexico
Alone in Kyoto – Air
Alpha Beta Gaga – Air
Aluminum – White Stripes
Always After You (‘Til You Started After Me) – Walkmen
Always Love – Nada Surf
Ambition – Doves
American Dreaming – Dead Can Dance
Amsterdam – Coldplay

Alone in Kyoto would be good if I want to fall asleep at high speed on I-75.  I don’t.

The weird amp sound at the beginning of Aluminum always throws me.  The feedback is annoying.  I like the vibe of the song, but the NOISE does it in.

The Walkmen song sounds ambitious, but it just doesn’t work.  It’s sorta punk, sorta loud, and sorta crappy.

Ambition doesn’t work for me as most Doves songs do.  It’s an ethereal sound, but it lacks emotion.  Cut.

I got the live version of this one DCD song I have… I always have to crank the volume on it to hear anything, and usually by the time I realize what it is and turn it up, it’s half over.  I should probably get an actual copy of it, because I always liked this song.

Chris Martin, your singing style gets on my nerves when you try to strip it down to a piano and your voice.  See: Amsterdam.  It almost picks up at the end enough, but I just couldn't stop Arte Johnson from hitting the gong in time.  Sorry.

Six out of ten. Ouch.

Either you're getting tougher or random distribution patterns just put a bunch of non-standout tracks in that group of ten.

71-80:

AMTV – Ladytron
Analyse – Thom Yorke
Anchor – Cave-In
And it Rained All Night – Thom Yorke
And Then You Kissed Me – Cardigans
Andvari – Sigur Ros
Angel – Massive Attack
Angela – John Vanderslice
The Anointed One – Ted Leo and the Pharmacists
Another Breakfast With You – Ladytron

That Cardigans album “Long Gone Before Daylight” had some highlights.  But mostly not.  I miss the old Cardigans “Life” and “First Band on the Moon” era sound.

I think my Sigur Ros phase is over.  I just can’t CONCENTRATE on the music like they need me to.  This is a perfect album to have on an airplane with your eyes closed.  Me, I’m always doing something while I’m listening to music, so I just can’t have it be this subtle.  Most of the time.

Not feeling very happy this morning.  Vanderslice, Leo, and Ladytron did not entertain me, they’re gone.  Maybe not a good idea to cut stuff based on mood, but this is the method chosen, so I’ll live with it.

Funny, because, to me, the pre-Out of Time stuff is the stuff worth listening to.


Yeah, I don't listen to any post-Document R.E.M.

I know exactly what you mean about the Cardigans. Although Gran Turismo is pretty damn good, and has my two favorite Cardigan songs on it.

I don't think my Sigur Ros phrase ever begun. If I'm in the mood for Icelandic songsmiths, I'll put on some Sugarcubes or Bjork.

Bonus fun Sigur Ros fact: The drummer, Orri,  is listed in the Icelandic phone book as "Orri Páll Dýrason, janitor", although he has never had this occupation. Orri's wife is listed as "janitor's wife".

Gran Turismo sort of bridged the gap between the 2 eras.  It had some good songs on it, but they did not sound like The Cardigans used to.  With the album I mentioned, they went even further to just straight ahead, bland pop as opposed to the happy, upbeat sound they used to have.

81-90:

Another Day – Air
Another Flavour – The Sundays
Another Love Song – Queens of the Stone Age
Another One Goes By – Walkmen
Another Pearl – Badly Drawn Boy
Another Sunny Day – Belle & Sebastian
Another Sweet Summer’s Night on Hammer Hill – Jens Lekman
Anticipation – Blonde Redhead
Anyone Else But You – Moldy Peaches
Anytime – My Morning Jacket

Badly Drawn Boy was close to getting cut, but I decided I liked the guitar riff in the song enough to want to listen to it again sometime.

That Jens Lekman album was mostly a suggestion I took from Metacritic.com… it’s good some good songs on it, just this is not one of them.  This song’s instrumentation is so spare, at times you can’t tell if he’s playing anything, or if they just accidentally picked up some sessions in another studio that he’s singing along with.

OK, this Moldy Peaches song… I have 2 comments on.  It’s not being cut just because I get a smile out of it every once in a while.
1.   I posted the “up-up-down-down-left-right-left-right-B-A-start” line as my signature on another message board once… and was promptly criticized because “that was not the correct cheat code”.  Fuck off, I thought.
2.   The part where she talks about shaking a turd out of the bottom of your pants is almost enough to turn me against them… but not quite.

That is the correct cheat code though.

Yeah, I thought it was, too.

I was never a big Contra player, though. You'd have to ask my brother.

I used it in Life Force to get 99 guys.  That game was sweet.

I was a big Contra player.  And yes, that's the right code.  Unless you wanted to have two players, and then you add a "select" before hitting start.  In Contra, you got thirty players with it.  

In later games, Konami knew that people would instantly try it, so if you did the cheat code it would do something negative to you...like one life or something.  I think the repercussions varied based on the game.

Don't leave us in suspense... had she ever held that occupation?

91-100:

Apocalypse Please – Muse
Apologies to Insect Life – British Sea Power
Approaching Pavonis Mons by Balloon – Flaming Lips
The Archer – Splashdown
Are You a Hypnotist? – Flaming Lips
Are You on My Side – Rogue Wave

Armagideon Time – The Clash
Armies Walk – Nada Surf
Around the Sun – REM

Around the World – Daft Punk

Anyone with thoughts about British Sea Power?

33 out of 100 early on, still short of my goal.  I even got a little tough and cut Are You a Hypnotist and Around the Sun against my better judgment.

Presumably, no. But I guess she could have been married before.

I think I saw that porno once.

I love "Carrion." But this song...I never really dug it except the one time I saw it live. It was good then, but certainly one I wouldn't keep.  FWIW, I still have it on my machine.
