I'll kick things off


Little Black Submarines- The Black Keys


I heard this song and was struck at how similar the song sounds to stairway to heaven. The black keys sound very zepplin-esque

2/10? Didnt do anything for me and I can find enjoyment in a lot of music.

10/10 for both songs above me.

The Black Keys have really started growing on me and that's my favourite song by them.

And as for "Have you seen the rain", what person doesn't love this song. I've sung this song drunk too many times.

I give it a 5. I'm completely indifferent towards it. Musically, it falls in line with my tastes. But it's just a bit too generic for me. Same goes for Cornell's performance. He's been brilliant at times over the years, but here he just doesn't really take the song anywhere. No real climax is delivered, the song just kind of meanders on. It's not bad, but it's pretty far from great.

It's certainly not a 10. But a fun little tune and there's one spot in the video that's laugh out loud funny.

Guess my expectations were low as I have a very different music taste to probably everyone on the PG... But fair play, got into it listen to it a couple of times and it was quite catchy

8/10

Ke$ha - Die Young

Hate this new age electronic pop, plus it's pretty emo, advocating and condoning dying young.

Ke$ha - Die Young



Anything in the club music genre that doesn't use auto-tune is better than 99% of club music. I remember seeing her open at a Dyslexic Speedreaders show I was at years back and she was barely dressed, so I'll go 7/10 even though it isn't music I listen to.

4/10 for detatchable penis.. it's not the worst gimmick song but it's still a gimmick song.

I haven't had the chance to listen to your song yet ill catch up in a minute but I have to disagree. It's not really emo, well at least not how I know emo.

"Let's make the most of the night like we're gonna die young"

To me that's a celebration of life more than "life is crap lets sit sulking over it". Condoning dying young... Really? Ke$ha might be creating a society of sluts but I'm pretty confident she's not saying to jump off a bridge, I'm also not saying she's a philosophical figure and she's banging on about how we should make the most of each day.

She's a singer who sings about enjoying life, sex alcohol whatever. Not slitting your wrists in dark rooms.

EDIT: Not even commenting on the song...

Good song. The Edge (Toronto Radio Station) plays this song every now and then. I like this a lot more than most of the songs posted in here since I last posted.

HiiiPOWER - Kendrick Lamar
