Jack White and Alicia Keys to duet on the next James Bond Theme!

At first I cringed. "Alicia Keys? Her voice is terrible!" But then her point about the rawness of her voice meshing well with the rawness of the White Stripes's sound actually makes sense. White will produce and play drums.

I can't really say I am an Alicia Keys fan, but to describe her voice as terrible?

Been obsessed with the first four songs on an Of Montreal Record. They totally won me over with this couplet, "On our trip to England I noticed something obscene
People still actually give a shit about the Queen"

Also saw the Subways last Friday who put on a great show. First time I'd jumped around in a pit in.....well let's just say too long.

Well, her voice is nice for the limited range she has. I really enjoy Fallin', You Don't Know My Name, A Woman's Worth, and If I Ain't Got You. But, my god, listen to her latest big hit "No One." Great song, but she's overextending her range big time there. It's painful to my ears.

Fantastic!

The White Stripes are by far the best band of the past ten years or so.

I also kinda like Gnarles Barkley.

I'm still listening to "As" by Stevie Wonder.

In addition to Stevie Wonder's version from Songs in the Key of Life, i've downloaded 21 other recordings of the song from the iTunes Store.

I need a new hit song. I have a total of nearly 1000 play counts on As, across all the different versions.

Can anyone suggest a new song that I might like as much?

Tokyo -- Bruce Cockburn -- Humans



They're getting prepared to haul a car out of the river
Noise and smoke and concrete seem to be going on forever
Grinding gears and drivers getting high on exhaust
I'm thinking about the water down below and what got lost
Pachinko jingle and space torpedo beams
Comic book violence and escaping steam
Grey suited business men pissing against the wall --
Cut to crumbling guardrail, slow motions car fall
Oh Tokyo -- I never can sleep in your arms
Mind keeps on ringing like a fire alarm
Me and all these other dice bouncing around in the cup
Did you have to show me that accident scene
Didn't I get enough shaking up?
Still I'm gonna miss you...
Dragon of good fortune struggles with trickster fox
Energy and patience and the power of the buck
Tonight I'm flying headlong
To meet the dark red edge of dawn
I know somebody will be crying
And somebody will be gone
Oh Tokyo -- I never can sleep in your arms
Mind keeps on ringing like a fire alarm
Me and all these other dice bouncing around in the cup
Did you have to show me that accident scene
Didn't I get enough shaking up?
Still I'm gonna miss you...

Elton John, Madman Across the Water.

For ages I've contended that Tumbleweed Connection was the greatest Elton John album (and, indeed, one of the best albums of the 1970s), but boy howdy, this one is kicking my ass. I still don't think it's as good as TC, but holy crap, it's a close second.

Interesting that you talk about Placebo covers...

They did a cover of Running Up That Hill, too. (The Kate Bush song Chromatics covered)

Menacing...

Seriously, give Fleet Foxes a listen if you want some catchy twangy folk music from Seattle. Awesome.

youtube (audio only)

If you like that, give the first track from the album a listen as well. You'll be hooked, as I am, after only two listens to the record.

Running to Stand Still- U2

Red Hill Mining Town- U2

They were capable of some beautiful songs before this post-2000 mediocrity (I loved 80's and 90's U2).

I skipped school to buy The Joshua Tree when it came out.

I still can't stop listening to Fleet Foxes. Someone help. Please.

Please give me some nice folk, something like Nick Drake, Damien Rice or Kings of Convenience (definitely nothing like James Blunt) to tear my ears away from this group. Classic folk is welcome too.
