two weeks pass...

I didn't listen but just saw Tory Lanez has a song out with a Chris Brown feature

rob, Thursday, 25 February 2021 13:53 (six months ago) link

Also didn't listen, but just saw Post Malone has a song out titled "Only Wanna Be With You (Pokémon 25 Version)."

stuck in the version layer (morrisp), Friday, 26 February 2021 21:24 (six months ago) link

I did listen to that, and I don't really know why that exists.

MarkoP, Friday, 26 February 2021 21:44 (six months ago) link

the reason it exists are pokemon is doing a very strange 25th anniversary celebration that includes getting post malone to cover hootie & the blowfish. there's going to be a katy perry song about pikachu at some point too

ufo, Friday, 26 February 2021 22:01 (six months ago) link

Katy Perry singing about Pikachu for a Pokemon thing makes sense.
I just don't quite understand the decision for Post Malone to cover Hootie and the Blowfish for this.
Like if he was covering M2M's Don't Say You Love Me, that would make a lot more sense.

MarkoP, Friday, 26 February 2021 22:51 (six months ago) link

they put in a sample of a track from pokemon gold & silver in the cover, but yeah i'm totally baffled by the whole thing

ufo, Friday, 26 February 2021 22:52 (six months ago) link

decide for yourself. i can't handle this guys billygoat vibrato and stopped after like thirty seconds.

Is there a contractual obligation with the Elvis estate to remix his catalog every 10 years or so?

Feeling very vindicated rn.

pomenitul, Monday, 15 March 2021 22:28 (six months ago) link

They are both terrible, but I almost feel like the Elvis/Big Boi trainwreck is the worst of the two because we could once expect decent things from Big Boi. I have no similar delusions of Imagine Dragons.

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Monday, 15 March 2021 22:34 (six months ago) link

I hear Elvis made some good records too

intern at pepe le pew research (Simon H.), Monday, 15 March 2021 22:35 (six months ago) link

Well, yeah. But Big Boi actively participated in making that song, Elvis.. uh, less so.

soaring skrrrtpeggios (jon /via/ chi 2.0), Tuesday, 16 March 2021 00:46 (six months ago) link

that imagine dragons song is unlistenable even by their standards to the point i cant see it being any sort of hit

ufo, Tuesday, 16 March 2021 01:04 (six months ago) link

Ohmygod, that song sounds like a practicing Mormon with writer's block heard Nine Inch Nails for the first time in his late '30s and was all "I've found my new direction!"

I’m hearing an unimaginative remix of an absolute classic. def a missed opportunity, but it’s serviceable, nothing “worst” about it imo

Blick, Bils & Blinky • Let's Skip The Shaker Intros (breastcrawl), Tuesday, 30 March 2021 10:59 (five months ago) link

yeah unimaginative is the problem here isn't it, just stick a beefy kick and some filter passes on it and call it a day

the problem is that I love a beefy kick and a filter pass

fine, the guitarist has a publishing contract with the label and also involved with another label or group in which Dr. Luke owns shares of

yeah that's more accurate. but the idea that dr. luke holding some small amount of shares in a company is tantamount to ownership in the way it is being framed w/in this controversy is specious

they're so ridiculously corny that i feel like they have to be in on it?

Ditto.

Yet I’d rather listen to calls from my bank offering me service fees than Taylor Swift’s songs so the bar is pretty low.
