PRESIDENTS OF THE… Lump

These songs are so used up that they were purged from my iPod four iPods ago. How about you?

Just for giggles turn on your local Alternative, Rock, or Modern AC station and see how long it takes to bump into one of these songs… AGAIN!  These songs are familiar and I’m sure I loved a lot of them at one time but that was along time ago… like you know when gas was 97 cents a gallon, Bill Clinton was president, I owned two pairs of Doc Martins and when I might have given a rats ass.

That was sooooooo then…

Now is…

Death Cab, PlayRadioPlay, Great Northern, Manchester Orchestra, Arcade Fire, Spoon, TV on the Radio, Interpol, Hard FI, Editors, Mute Math, The Shins, Carbon Silicon, Rogue Wave, Modest Mouse, The Hives, Bravery, Silversun Pickups, VHS or Beta, Shiny Toy Guns, Muse, Kaiser Chiefs, Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs, BRMC, Klaxons, The Hold Steady, LCD Soundsystem, The Rapture, The Kooks, Arctic Monkeys, Keane, Travis, Duffy, Raconteurs, MGMT, Vampire Weekend, The Last Shadow Puppets, BRMC and many more.

Of course your list will vary as music is a very personal experience.  Good for you. Life is rich with new experiences and aural treasures.  Get out there and get some!

Music is Inherently unfamiliar and unhummable until you’ve heard it enough to hum it enough for it to become familiar and innately hummable.  Cha.

    Amen. Are you suggesting killing these titles outright, or exiling them to the 9th circle of rotation?
