Rilo Kiley – “Portions For Foxes”

While I was studying abroad Kylie Minogue's "Can't Get  You Out Of My Head" was huge in Europe.  I got back to the States just as it became big here too.  More than anything else, that experience made me realize that I couldn't trust Top-40 radio; they were too far behind the times, and there were better songs that had been big in Europe that didn't make the jump.  So much for a world without borders...

So I started seeking out independent and new music.  I became a frequent listener of Brian Oake's Freedom Rock on Cities 97, because I didn't know where else to turn.  He definitely introduced me to some good stuff, including what is now one of my favorite songs (my apologies for the 30 seconds of tuning).

Also, I used to be real frustrated at the fact that girls seemed to like guys who could play the guitar more, like somehow that skill made them more attractive.  Jenny Lewis made me understand.  Chicks that can play are more attractive too.  And thus began my love of independent music and girls who can play the guitar.

        1. I figured if you noticed beforehand, it might have altered your response. Glad it worked this way.

    1. Brian Oake is so pretentious when he's by himself, but I've noticed that when he's paired off with someone else, especially Keri Noble, he lightens up quite a bit and sounds like a real human being.

  1. There's a good chance this would've been on my next video week if I didn't decide to annoy everyone with seven straight days of country. Jenny Lewis is amazing

    1. Also, what is this "hot gurl singer"? For the sake of parity, you will naturally be offering up with a "hot boy singer" tomorrow, yes?

      1. No, but I won't object when you have your week.

        More seriously - it just has to do with the scales falling from my eyes, as described in the post.

        1. Fair enough. 🙂 Of course, I was one of those girls who had a thing for guitar-playing guys.

    1. I'm an unabashed Kylie Minogue fan. She only does bubble gum pop that I've heard, but she does it so well. I dig her cover of Locomotion as well as Chocolate.

        1. My own introduction...

          Teenage Fanclub's sloppy soundcheck of the BMX Bandits' Kylie's Got a Crush On Us, a song I first heard on an NME cassette sampler.
