Damn. Dude was young. I'll give him credit for trying to bring disco back. Briefly.

For the folks who may argue the disco beats, I bring Canned Heat to the stand...

In fairness, there was a lot of interest in bringing it back when they hit the charts.

In fairness, Gwen Stefani enabled them with her own solo albums...

But is Marilyn Manson the name of the band or the guy?

Yes.

Even if it were the guy with the hat's name, wouldn't the keyboardist still be the keyboardist for Jamiroquai?

I don't care what people think of me, I liked Jamaroquai.

Is "funky" describing the style of Jay's hat, or the smell of it by this point?

I never heard of them before I saw Jay Kay on TOP GEAR.  Not my kind of music, but he himself has an
infectious enthusiasm that makes me wish I liked his music more.

Disco has stayed.  Daft Punk proved that with Random Access Memories.

Damn. That seriously sucks. I'm really digging their new single, 'Automaton'. Sort of shades of ELO's 'Time'.

Next you're going to tell me Led Zeppelin isn't a dude's name.

mooseyfate: I don't care what people think of me, I liked Jamaroquai.


I liked individual songs, but every time I tried to listen to one of their albums I got to maybe the 4th song before I was like "Okay, I think I get the idea."

Next you're going to tell me that Jethro Tull wasn't the name of the flautist.

"You know, Scotland has its own martial arts. Yeah, it's called Phuk-Kyu. It's mostly just head butting and then kicking people when they're on the ground."
