Elliott Smith:
You're not that great of a lyricist, contrary to common belief.

This is true.

Although I think he makes up for it with the way he arranges the lyrics with the music, they usually come together very nicely. It's the only way he could get away with something like Everything Means Nothing To Me.. lol.

I don't even know the lyrics to that and it's spent time at #1 on my list of favorite Smith songs.

I don't think he says anything but Everything Means Nothing To Me in that song... yet it's still amazing. Not many artists can get away with that.

Someone found the future as a statue in a fountain
At attention, looking backward in a pool of water
Wishes with a blue songbird on his shoulder
Who keeps singing over everything
Everything means nothing to me
Everything means nothing to me
Everything means nothing to me
I picked up the song and found my picture in the paper
The reflection in the water showed an iron man still trying to salute
People from a time when he was everything he's supposed to be
Everything means nothing to me
Everything means nothing to me
Everything means nothing to me
Everything means nothing to me

Well **** me. I guess it's been awhile since I've listened to Figure 8.

Billy get your head in order you egotistical bollocks.

The Cure
Just play a farewell tour and give up, you'll never release another great album

Like, I know, right? I've been listening to The Wall recently, and I had been puzzling over it, asking myself whether it is just me or there actually are only about 2 out of 26 tracks that are particularly good on the whole thing? So why is this a big favourite among Floyd fans?

It's a trailer trash favorite, not a fan favorite. I find it rather embarrassing that the United States embraced The Wall completely (23x platinum) but practically ignored their earlier (read: "better") works. That's not to say that The Wall is without its moments (Goodbye Blue Sky, Young Lust, Comfortably Numb), but it really was a wholesale departure from their usual style.

Lol, for a while there I thought it was The Wall that was their big album, and not Dark Side Of The Moon.
