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 âPrince’ 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.
