Here are all of alexcornetto's jams.
Can't stop listening to this song - it's a weird, wonderful mix of Fountains of Wayne, Jellyfsh, The B*atles and the "amendment to be" song from the Simpsons. "This cake is baked but I much prefer the batter / Perhaps in part because it had so much potential / To be delicious and still be influential..."

Seeing Robert Forster in December and could not be more excited. I assume there'll be Go-Betweens songs, but if he plays this, I may combust. (And Clouds, obviously, but let's not get into that one now...)

Girding myself to write my long-gestating review of the new @titusandronicus album this week. I fear that, much like one slab of vinyl will not contain #TMLT, 600 words will not be able to fit even 10% of my thoughts on the album. Until then, here's Act 2 of the album - the most incendiary fifteen minutes of music likely to be released this year.

Whatever happened to these guys? They were Quite Good, weren't they?

They're saying the whole point of everything's the "moving on." Well, I can't help but feel somewhat opposed to this, my shit having been torched by fascists. Though, in some small way, we're all traitors to our own kind...

"Tous les garçons et les filles de mon âge savent bien ce que c'est qu'être heureux..." Morrissey doesn't hold a candle to Françoise Hardy in the sadness stakes. Bonjour, tristesse.

I mean, yeah this is probably everyone's jam right now (new album outselling the top 10 five-to-one, say what?!) but fuck it. There are better songs on The Magic Whip, but there aren't better Blur songs.

Been on a big Kim Deal kick lately. I mean, how does someone even write a song like this? It's the musical equivalent of someone dropping a priceless vase, then scrabbling to put the pieces back together with superglue and hoping no one notices.

Finally own a real copy of Denim On Ice, after far too many years of searching Question for those who were there, though - did anyone actually think this was going to be a hit? Back In Denim, I understand, but this is almost as odd as Lawrence's stuff with Go-Kart Mozart. Almost.

I refuse to hear a bad word said about Don't Tell A Soul. If it were just this song and ten tracks of the Mats goofin' off, it would still be better than most records that came out that year.

The best song about one washed-up singer committing an act of arson against another washed-up singer ever written. Probably also the best song named after an obscure Simpsons reference ever written.

Apart from a new flat and a couple of interpersonal tweaks, I'm seeing out 2014 in much the same state as I came into it. And I'm still calling it a pretty crappy 12 months. GET SOME PERSPECTIVE IN TIME FOR 2015, YO.

My indifference to most things Paul Weller is well documented. This, on the other hand, is one of the most insanely vital six minutes of music ever committed to tape. And that's saying nothing of our man Wyatt...

by The Cure
I'm not exactly an apologist for Wild Mood Swings, but on days like these, when I'm in moods like this, a song like that helps. And, y'know, The Cure doing cocktail jazz. What's not to love? [/rhetorical question]

This song here...this is the best song.

That annoying moment where you realise you absolutely love one song by a guy you'd previously not been fussed with, then revisit his back catalogue, only to realise that that one song is still the best thing he's ever done by a country mile.
