One can't go wrong with The Bends. Yes, people of opinion seem to think OK Computer is Radiohea's masterpiece. I think of it more as their Master and Commander minus Russell Crowe and a whole lot of other things. Ok, actually it has nothing to do with Master and Commnader I just like saying "Master" in a fake Sean Connery voice. Kinda like "Oct-a-pussy." or the SNL skit Jeopardy where he states
"I'll take the rapist for $200."
"Rapist? You mean therapist."
"Is that what your mother said last night, Trebek?"
Back to the friends of The Bends. Perhaps Abbey Road. She might make the cut. Has a great opening song "Come Together" which ineviatably for me bring ups the question -- Top 5 opening songs for an album a la High Fidelity style. I'm going with:
- Come Together (Beatles: Abbey Road)
- Let's Get it On (Marvin Gaye: What's Going On?)
- Smells Like Teen Spirit (Nirvana: Nirvana)
- Black Dog (Led Zepplin: IV)
- Let's Go Cray (Prince: Purple Rain)
So The Bends needs friends and 28 hours until the end of Gilmore Girls .....I think I'm getting stressed :)
