30 years, 30 songs, in 30 days - 2000
« on: June 14, 2020, 01:46:51 AM »
As we enter a new era of thought provoking work by our lads, I canít honestly pick a song from ATYCLB. I couldnít stand BD when it came out, as it was overplayed everywhere on radio. But I did enjoy the album a bit more, although I donít rank it highly nowadays. Strangely, my appreciation for BD has grown. Go figure.

Anyways, 2000 was about the time I started to branch out into downtempo/trip-hop and EDM stuff and one of the catalyst songs was Porcelain, by Moby.

Wild Mountain Honey - The Tragically Hip. A top three all time song for me.

Highlights of 2000.

PJ Harvey - Stories from the City, Stories from the Sea.....From that album - Big Exit, This Mess We're In (Feauturing Thom Yorke) and The Whores Hustle and The Hustlers Whore.

Rated R by Queens of The Stone Age and from it Feel Good Hit of The Summer

Lost Souls by Doves and 'The Cedar Room' is a stunner.

De Stijl by The White Stripes is a big runner in this race for me - You're Pretty Good Looking (For a Girl) and Apple Blossom being favourites of mine.

Black Market Music by Placebo is probably their weakest album and frankly not very good at all - but in Slave to the Wage it has at least one really good track.

All Hands on the Bad One by Sleater Kinney sees the albums title track get a nod here for me.

Bloodflowers by The Cure is a weak album by their lofty standards but the title track is pretty great.

The top spot for 2000 though goes to Radiohead and from the magnificent Kid A "Idioteque"

I thought about picking U2's "Kite" or The Tragically Hip's "Music@Work" for my year 2000 rep, but I'm going with my fave song from the last album that I can really say changed my life. This is "Sereia" by Suba.


I've got the feeling that tomorrow is going to be a tie for me...

Itís now common practice to accept ties. Suit yourself!

As good as PJ Harvey's album is from that year, I don't think there's really a stand out track.

I would have chosen "How to disappear completely" by Radiohead but I think this is more interesting :


I think U2 touched greatness with that song. Sonically interesting, great contrast, it shows every member at his best, production is tight... too bad they failed to acknowledge all this and considered this as a leftover from an otherwise average album... to me this (and Stateless) was the true heir of Pop. U2 rarely should as good as they do with bittersweet songs.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...
