YAAAAAACHT RAWWWWWWWK \m/
I thought of a way to keep myself interested in this for a whole week. If I can keep it working after today, I haven't planned ahead or anything.
I was listening to Currents by Tame Impala the other day, as I tend to do with some frequency (it was my favorite album last year, after all). "The Less I Know the Better" finished, and then... it came on.
"Past Life" would probably be annoying enough, what with its ham-fisted spoken word and merely "okay" chorus, but then there are those super pitch shifted vocals and the absolute stinker "It was my lover" line (at least that one's good for a laugh). The song is terrible.
It got me thinking - there are plenty of albums that I enjoy that have a song or two that I dislike, but not many albums that I truly love that have a one star song. I can't think of any others off the top of my head.
So, what say you? Do you have an album that you absolutely adore, but with a song that you absolutely loathe?
DK is unsurprised.
I heard this song the first time while waiting for TV on the Radio to come onstage (great show), and it got its hooks in me instantly. There were lots of warm summer days soundtracked by this song, as well as the rest of Currents.
I haven't solidified a lot of my list, but this one has been the only realistic choice for "Song of the Year" for me.
Weird that the next song on the album is the worst song created by an artist that I like all year.
These Aussies dig deeeeeep in the psychedelic 70s, but the results are pretty sweet. I only have these boyos' first album; an unfortunate oversight.
