    Best version of this song, IMHO:

    Always been a favorite:

    Actually, I guess I am comparing them to Tool. They both share similar elements and are highly respected and influential in their respective genres.

    You say this, but then you say Michael Jackson is one of the greatest...

    michael Jackson was the most overrated musician of all time imo. This opinion has nothing to do with him being a rapist monster btw

    I don't remember saying that. Maybe I did. He was one of the great entertainers. I rather listen to MJ than the SR.

    I guess I'm about on the same level there, outside of a few choice tracks from both that are worth noting... like "I am the Resurrection" and "Smooth Criminal"

    Fool's Gold is pretty great too!

    Not sure if this applies, but the first time I heard Britney Spears on the radio I thought she was black. I think "Baby One More Time" was a radio song that was surfacing around on pop and R&B stations before the video came out. When I saw it for the first time I might have even thought where is she before realizing it was being sung by the blonde mouthing the words.

    I don't get Ghost at all. Like, there are a few songs that I enjoy but they sound like the Scorpions and look like Dimmu Borgir. How do fans reconcile this difference? Are they that much different live or something? And I mean actually live, like at the show where you feel the music.

    Years back somebody made me listen to some of Britney's earlier recordings: singing in talent shows as a kid as well as some demos. She has a much bigger voice than I had heard in her songs on the radio with a far darker tone and it's quite nice.

    Allegedly the sorta baby-voice styling she has done on most of her recordings is something her team insisted on because they thought it was more commercially accessible. Which obviously, they were correct. But I still prefer her darker tone in the earlier recordings and makes me wonder what she would have sounded like if she continued to perform/train with that tone in mind rather than the brighter tone she is more known for.

    My husband asked me about Bon Iver because they were mentioned in a comic he read as having put 2 pilots into a coma

    so I asked Alexa to put 22 a million on our Sonos speakers and my God what a load of boring shit - this stuff got a 9 on Pitchfork which confirms my belief that some ‘hype’ bands pay for positive reviews - the only explanation for this

    Another coffee house indie band that Pitchfork loves that I could totally take-or-leave.

    Bon Iver is talented but such boring dreck, I don't wanna listen to him. Quite the quandary.

    That album was exactly what I needed for what I was dealing with that summer. The rest of his stuff? Yeah, I don't get it at all. Which makes my love for that album all the more strange, tbh.

    Had a lot of friends into these guys, even seen them at a few festivals, just never been a big fan.

    Now if we're talking guilty pleasures, the B-52's Roam is one of mine.

    Trivium are not a bad band they’re just really, really derivative and copy a lot of Metallica tropes. They’re not bad they just don’t stand out but I had on Silence in the Snow this week and it was pretty good for radio friendly metal.

    Love the B-52's--no shame in liking them.

    Yeah, The B-52's were legitimately unconventional (not unlike Devo) in their early days. Granted, they were less interesting artistically by the time they actually had hits, but yeah. Cool band.

    They put out a reunion album in 2008. Haven't listened to it in forever, but it was good.

    The Smashing Pumpkins circa 2012 were better than the current lineup. Oceania was their best post-90's album, that lineup had more fire in the belly than the reunited band of today and the live show was better too, more exciting. Not saying the 2012 lineup was better than the SP of the 90's, just better than the band is right now.

    Billie Eilish is an industry plant who had an unfair advantage. She never paid her dues like Trent and Lady Gaga did. Her family lives in LA, her brother's a music producer and both of her parents are musicians.

    I'm a 40 year old guy, so obviously her music isn't anything I could relate to, but she seems talented and she speaks to today's youth and seems authentic, so good for her.
