Midnight Cinema released their album today!

Except 1. so far it’s only available in digital format, and 2. I’ve already heard and purchased most of the songs on it.

Dammit, I was expecting something all new.

Oh god it just hit me. David Byrne was in Brooklyn on Sunday: I wasn’t in Brooklyn, but I was in New York City over the weekend. Anyway, the point is that he was in NYC over the weekend and that anon was wrong. I could have seen him by chance if I’d been the right area.

(This sounds really creepy, I swear I’m not trying to stalk anyone, it just makes me happy to think “X person is in the area when I am!” Also, if said anon is reading this, I’m not angry or anything, I am just stating that the information was incorrect- and I’m not blaming you because I too thought he was in London, but apparently not and that’s interesting.)

Answer
  • Question: Can you name just one favourite song from every U2 studio album, every INXS studio album and every Talking Heads studio album? - Anonymous
  • Answer:

    …This is truly one of the strangest requests I have ever gotten on Tumblr (which means people don’t usually request strange things), but I’ll oblige you because I’m in a moving vehicle and have nothing else to do but sit in place and try to listen to music above the noisy radio.

    I can’t name one from every studio album in the Talking Heads and INXS areas, though, because I haven’t heard all of them. Doesn’t mean I’m not a real fan though!

    For U2:

    Boy- “Out of Control”

    October- “Gloria”

    War- “New Year’s Day”

    The Unforgettable Fire- “The Unforgettable Fire”

    The Joshua Tree- “With or Without You”

    Rattle and Hum- “Hawkmoon 269”

    Achtung Baby- “Who’s Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses”

    Zooropa- LEMON!

    Pop- “Staring at the Sun”

    All That You Can’t Leave Behind- “When I Look at the World”

    How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb- “City of Blinding Lights”

    No Line on the Horizon- “Breathe”

    For INXS:

    INXS- haven’t heard it

    Underneath the Colours- haven’t heard it

    Shabooh Shoobah- “Don’t Change”

    The Swing- “Original Sin”

    Listen Like Thieves- haven’t heard it

    Kick- “Never Tear Us Apart”

    X- “The Stairs”

    Welcome to Wherever You Are- “Strange Desire”

    Full Moon, Dirty Hearts- “Freedom Deep”

    Elegantly Wasted- “We Are Thrown Together”

    For Talking Heads:

    Talking Heads: 77- “The Book I Read”

    More Songs About Buildings and Food- “The Girls Want to Be With the Girls”

    Fear of Music- “I Zimbra”

    Remain in Light- “Born Under Punches (The Heat Goes On)”

    Speaking in Tongues- “This Must Be the Place (Naive Melody)”

    I haven’t heard any other Talking Heads albums.

    Thank you so much for this fun challenge, my nameless friend!

Okay, this might make me sound snobbish in regards to music, but I just have to say it.

I simply do not like musical interpolation, such as in the song that goes “I just wanna feel this moment” that uses the keyboard riff from “Take On Me,” and (apparently) “Me and My Broken Heart” by Rixton that uses the same melody of “Lonely No More” by Rob Thomas. I mean, I can kind of get behind the first use, especially since they add a new beat to that part and basically they’re introducing younger audiences to “Take On Me” (although I think pretty much everyone knows that song exists). But that’s an instrumental part, and while I understand that because by now pretty much everyone has ripped off a riff before, I don’t condone using the same melody for different songs. Sure, Rixton got Rob Thomas’s permission before using the melody, but that shouldn’t count as “interpolation” when it’s basically reusing the melody of an already-existing song. I don’t mind using instrumental parts, but melodies… it’s just too confusing to me.

That said, I do like some songs that sample other songs. For example, “Take Me Home Tonight” quotes “Be My Baby” and even has a section that uses some of the same instrumental part of that song, and I love it. But I love it because it’s a tribute and not just taking and reusing. Rixton said that Rob Thomas was a great inspiration for them and they wanted to honor him with the song, but I think it would have made more sense if they had sing his lyrics too. Maybe I’m not getting something, maybe I’m old-fashioned or intolerant. But I just don’t really like the idea of using the same melody on different songs and different lyrics.
