    Once I finished my current runthrough of Gilmore Girls I might do the same!
    On one hand I'm not sure if I have the patience to sit through a show I already know. (watching it together with someone who's seeing it for the first time is a different experience, just watching alone might make me want to skip the boring bits, then end up just fastforwarding everything).
    But it is a wonderful world to dive (back) into. Already crying thinking of the ending, 'I miss you, Joe' and Jack's coming out.

    Noooooooo... why??
    I don't remember having this discussion, but Dawson became less likeable as the show went on.. I can't think of (m)any reasons to dislike Pacey, at all..

    To stay on topic: here's Katie Holmes singing.. I wonder if she got any votes?

  3. Is "A" Death Cab for Cutie's secret middle initial, like the B in Sophie B Hawkins?

  4. Clean Bandit were my most hated group of the 2010s, but then they came out as Corbynites so now I have to reluctantly file them alongside all the grime music I'm pretending to like. There's been enough leftist in-fighting already without me being uncomradely about their pop.

    It's odd because I'm pretty sure I have at some point in the past used the exact phrase "dance music for Tories" to describe Clean Bandit's output. If their entire career was a covert political infiltration of the right, I'm down with it.
     
  5. I am forever playing catch-up in the evenings because it's hard to surreptitiously watch videos at work.

    -Hey, who else remembers Nikka Costa's long-lost teen pop career? Shout-out to all of PJOPS!

    -Way to actually choose my fave Frank song, random album track and everything!

    -'I Can't Explain' is too cute and I do kind of love how K-otic are now Ultimate Popstar iconic forever!

    -Oh my god, Lorie! Some of those hairstyles are so early Mandy Moore.

    This makes me so happy. That is all.
     
  6. It's a previously unreleased song that Edie Brickell released on the band's 2002 Ultimate collection compilation. Quite a hidden, decent number by the band!

  7. It makes me happy, whenever I read "Mandy Moore's" name mentioned, literally anywhere. So thank you for that!

    Oh my gosh, Lorie! I love her! She just barely missed out from my top 40 list I believe.

  8. A little bit of catchup but I discovered Frank for myself just a few months ago. How did I go so long without them? To me the album is literally flawless and deserved to be huge.

    I also love Lorie alot, this is my favorite:

     
  9. Lorie's best song and video!

    I still haven't checked out Franks album yet, but I will soon.

  10. I was wary of Clean Bandit at first because I never liked Rather Be (I'm blaming Jess Glynne for that now) and it was so deathly overplayed. But the last three of Tears + Rockabye + Symphony have been really incredible, so I'm excited to see where they go next. Grace's Corbyn shirt helped too.

    Year 3000 is a tune and easily Busted's best.

    Marissa Nadler sounds like she might cater to my Lana love.
     
  14. Yes, definitely!! I feel the same!
     
  15. "Don't know much" is Linda Rhonstadt with Aaron Neville? I don't know much of her but she has a beautiful voice.

    I really like the version of "I Just Don't Know What to Do with Myself" of The White Stripes!

    I don't know Nickel Creek and Marissa Nadler at all. But they both sound very good - I will listen to some more songs!

    Right! The artist-vote was for Linda though, not for them as a duo.
    Pretty much the only song I know by her, but I do love it.

  17. It's been 30-odd yeas since I've heard of her and I STILL have problems spelling Linda Ronstadt. Glad I'm not the only one!

  18. The most known version of "Blue Bayou" is from her:



    But I don't know any other song neither ...

  19. Glad someone picked Back To Love. What a classic early 90s tune although this is my favourite of theirs:
