Seinfeld wasn't kidding when he said that Tuesday 'has no feel.' It's unquestionably my least favorite day of the week for that reason. It's neither here nor there.
Just a few thoughts on Pfork's Top 50 Singles of '04
It's nice to see them embrace the "iPod revolution makes it a-ok to cherry pick hot singles" argument with their most inclusive Top 50 yet, although I'm still finding it hard to swallow that Pfork staffers have actually listened to the Big and Rich record.
They trashed "Drop It Like It's Hot" (and it's parent album) in their We Are The World section, but it still somehow made #39. Does anything that Snoop has put out in the past decade really compare with "Gin and Juice"?
Though both were included in the Top 50, I can't find a single person on earth who thinks that Annie's "Heartbeat" (#1) is a better song than Annie's "Chewing Gum" (#11), but I suppose tastes can differ.
MMM will unquestionably be pleased to see Allison Goldfrapp at #43 (and next to Mclusky no less).
