So they've supposedly been dating, and are now engaged. Woohoo!

This is probably a "lesser of two evils" situation for most of us, but... whose music do you prefer?

This is Ryan Adams. In three weeks, he'll decide he doesn't want to be engaged anymore and write 99 songs about it.

all of them will suck

Re: the object of the poll

I thought it was cool a few years ago when Mandy did that covers album, and completely alienated her former fanbase by covering XTC, Todd Rundgren, The Waterboys, etc. Also, I like "Candy" fwiw.

Ryan is such a drama queen, and writes and records far too often. But when he's on, he's really on. I could distill the best of his stuff onto an 80 min cd and he'd sound like a genius. Not sure how much to deduct from his score for the mountains of unforgiveable garbage, though.

TIE!

One was on Entourage and in that awesome movie Saved! (and I don't know her music). The other one sucks balls.

Mandy is cute and had some good tunes. Ryan looks like Fred Armisen in drag and is boring.

Both had articles written about them in No Depression but only Mandy's caused dozens of stick-up-the-ass subscribers to pitch a fit. So Mandy obv.

this phrasing is funny to me. were there pop kids still paying attention to MM as a singer at that point that were actually alienated by her covering '80s college rock?

'candy' was awesome and all but then she turned into this person who was all 'oh chart music is meaningless pap' which just seemed... both boring and assholish considering where she'd come from?

c sharp major, Saturday, 14 February 2009 15:28 (5 years ago) Permalink

actually having googled i think i've misrepresented her. On covering umbrella: “This was one of my favorite songs of the moment. I’m not a big Top 40s type of listener but you just can’t deny how melodic this song is."

i suspect it was the word 'melodic' that set off the alarm bells.

what, like mandy hongro?

I like her cover of "Drop the Pilot" a lot!

There was an unfortunate James Brown influence on the rhythm track but the Yes-like harmonics balanced it out.

when i hear the word 'melodic' i reach for my revolver.

i would worry if i ever started fretting about how rockist mandy moore comes across in interviews.

ryan adams made some great music with whiskeytown and his first solo album. but then dopped off a cliff. < mandy was hot/is still hot.

ha i just talked about this with a semi-corny coworker this week. he was like "i can't believe this!? well, maybe mandy moore is much deeper than she seems"

and then i said maybe his opinion of ryan adams was in need of revision basically.

If I knew Mandy Moore, I would pull her aside for some friendly girl talk about reevaluating her taste in men. Andy Roddick, Wilmer Valderrama, Zach Braff, Ryan Adams, bleh.

drop the pilot is pretty good, her voice is untamed in a way that intrigues me

Candy.
I Wanna Be With You.
In My Pocket.
Saturate Me.

This isn't even close.

"Saturate Me" is so, so, so awesome.

Seriously, what Ryan Adams song is supposed to be better than "Saturate Me"?

seems mandy moore's team got some pointers from the linkin park folk on the lyrics front

Charlie Howard, Wednesday, 18 February 2009 05:46 (5 years ago) Permalink

I really liked that Mandy Moore take on "Breaking Us in Two," actually. But I'd not compare it to 90% of the Gold album. (He lost me somewhere between Demolition and Rock N Roll; a friend's trying to convince me to give his Cardinals albums a chance.)

3 weeks pass...

Newlyweds Mandy Moore and Ryan Adams enjoy a romantic stroll through Runyon Canyon in the Hollywood Hills on Friday morning (April 3).

The couple, who celebrates their one-month anniversary next Friday, haven’t been on a honeymoon yet but Mandy is a-okay with that!

“We’ll have to talk about it,” she told E!. “I’m happy being home. Home is a honeymoon enough for me!”
