Here’s L Magazine Music Editor Mike Conklin with a Hot Tip For Your Everyday Life.
I’m seriously late to the party here, I know, but this Last.FM business is no joke. I signed up and installed some stuff, which took all of about six minutes, then typed Velvet Underground into the search box, listened to "Stephanie Says", and it’s been non-stop awesome ever since. Seriously, look:
Sonic Youth â€“ Silver Rocket
The Kinks â€“ Days
The Modern Lovers â€“ Someone I Care About
Syd Barrett â€“ Feel
The Rolling Stones â€“ Doncha Bother Me
The Seeds â€“ Rollin’ Machine
Bonnie â€˜Prince’ Billy â€“ Hard Life
Big Star â€“ Try Again
Donovan â€“ Turquoise
Townes Van Zandt â€“ Be Here to Love Me
Stereolab â€“ Italian Shoes Continuum
Yo La Tengo â€“ Yellow Sarong
13th Floor Elevators â€“ Baby Blue
Yeah, Mark. The internet is the worst.
UPDATE: A few minutes have gone by, and I am now listening to Iron Butterfly’s "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida," which would have been mind-blowingly amazing had it been the 17-minute album version, complete with the crazy long drum solo, but alas, it’s the two-and-a-half minute radio edit.
