love the sinead, like the bonnie raitt.

tipsy mothra, Thursday, 4 December 2008 00:17 (twelve years ago) link

I Do Not Want..., easily, but the Bonnie Raitt record is pretty good.

"Forever Your Girl" would have been such an amazing song if they'd given it to somebody who could sing.

Bonnie Raitt wins this one but I never liked Sinead.

UH OH! UH OH! HERE COMES THE HAMMER!

Ringtone Tycoon (The Reverend), Thursday, 4 December 2008 05:49 (twelve years ago) link

have there been any recent analogs to the bonnie raitt album? 40-yr-old journeyman, respected but never quite a star, suddenly breaking through big nearly 20 years into her/his career? seemed like in the mid-'80s to early '90s there were a lot of aging boomers who had hit records, but maybe that was a phenomenon particular to the era.

tipsy mothra, Thursday, 4 December 2008 06:17 (twelve years ago) link

Carlos Santana's "Supernatural", maybe? Sure, he was a already a star but nothing like what he became. And he hadn't had a proper hit since the 70's. Can't think of an example from the 2000's.

As for the poll, it's Sinead, easily.

Not a very good year.

moley, Thursday, 4 December 2008 10:56 (twelve years ago) link

I voted for Milli Vanilli.

moley, Thursday, 4 December 2008 10:56 (twelve years ago) link

Me voting for a somewhat disappointing Phil Collins album here says more about the rest. Sinead O'Connor comes close though.

Geir Hongro, Thursday, 4 December 2008 11:28 (twelve years ago) link

Luck of the Draw is the better album anyway.

Alfred, Lord Sotosyn, Thursday, 4 December 2008 13:20 (twelve years ago) link

Yeah, blue dress should have been one of the poll choices.

Bimble Is Still More Goth Than You, Thursday, 4 December 2008 21:03 (twelve years ago) link

I used to own ...But Seriously. I still remember Sarah Cracknell's remarks about Collins in this period: "When he sang that song about the homeless, and he wondered, `Tell me why?' I thought, `Because you have all the money, you bald bastard.'"

Alfred, Lord Sotosyn, Thursday, 4 December 2008 21:06 (twelve years ago) link

I Do Not Want...

i feel the same way about this poll

k3vin k., Thursday, 4 December 2008 21:16 (twelve years ago) link

totally sinead

deviants w. deliriants (Drugs A. Money), Thursday, 4 December 2008 22:48 (twelve years ago) link

blue dress is kinda squatting down like a dude would do.

in that vein, i voted for bonnie raitt.

Automatic thread bump. This poll is closing tomorrow.

System, Thursday, 11 December 2008 00:01 (twelve years ago) link

Yellow-checkered Chess King shirt dude has, appropriately enough, a fucking giraffe neck. Anyway, Sinead.

Emergency Rainbow (Pancakes Hackman), Thursday, 11 December 2008 00:24 (twelve years ago) link

Mirrored glasses dude on far left has a well packed fly. Sinead.

fuck all these other posers

Q: Why was the mushroom so popular? A: He was a fungi (latebloomer), Thursday, 11 December 2008 01:31 (twelve years ago) link

Yeah, because Milli Vanilli weren't poseurs...

omar little, Friday, 12 December 2008 00:14 (twelve years ago) link

well actually no surprise

omar little, Friday, 12 December 2008 00:15 (twelve years ago) link

The six votes for Hammer ARE a surprise.

Alfred, Lord Sotosyn, Friday, 12 December 2008 00:18 (twelve years ago) link

0 for vanilla ice is a surprise. I thought there would be at least one joker
