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 – Silver Rocket
The Kinks – Days
The Modern Lovers – Someone I Care About
Syd Barrett – Feel
The Rolling Stones – Doncha Bother Me
The Seeds – Rollin' Machine
Bonnie ‘Prince' Billy – Hard Life
Big Star – Try Again
Donovan – Turquoise
Townes Van Zandt – Be Here to Love Me
Stereolab – Italian Shoes Continuum
Yo La Tengo – Yellow Sarong
13th Floor Elevators – 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.
