I Must Be An Asshole…

Parts of Warmer reminded me of Simon & Garfunkel’s Only Living Boy in New York.
Add horns and chances are I’ll really like it (Landslide Baby).
You’re Only King Once sounds like something Wilco did.

-”he wouldn’t take a bullet for you” from Popular Mechanics for Lovers. irreverent/tongue-in-cheek yet seemingly sincere/genuine.
-Beach Boys’ harmony
-Probably influenced bands like Fountains of Wayne and Phantom Planet
-Infectious, viagra pilule hook-filled pop; 60s-influenced, viagra sales cialis Phil Spector orchestration
-Over the span of their entire catalog, I remarked to myself on several occasions, hey that sounds just like…
-Opening chords of Gene Autry remind me of Kinks’ Victoria

…because after the initial shock of discovering Michael Jackson’s death, cialis usa buy I was strangely compelled to watch Weird Al Yankovic’s Eat It video. While I’ve never owned any of Jackson’s solo music, health his talent and place in music history is undeniable. I admit I’ve long begrudged him for buying the publishing rights to The Beatles’ catalog and allowing their music to be used in TV commercials, purchase but it’s very sad to think of his three (inordinately insulated) kids.

I fully expect the mainstream media to conduct carpet-bomb coverage of his life and death for the next two news cycles and I’m sure it’s too much to ask for a nuanced, balanced examination, but for goodness sake, let’s not elevate his life AND music to utter hyperbole. He was a talented, flawed man with immeasurable influence on pop culture and music videos in the 80s and into the 90s, but his musical influence was certainly not commensurate. So yeah, nuanced and balanced…

R.I.P.
