"look, we survived Robert Miles, we will survive this too, just relax"

I immediately vote for this as the replacement slogan for "Keep Calm and Carry On"

fuck you Dan, "Children" is a classic *takes ball and goes home*

I mean, in the interest of full disclosure I never understood why everyone despised "Children" either but Miles such a good stand-in for "commercially successful dance dude that dance people seem to hate with terrifying and unhealthy fervor"

it's basically "look, we survived Robert Miles, we will survive this too, just relax"

Dan obviously doesn't remember the mass group suicides of the 90s.

i am a big fan of "another night" to be honest

"Another Night" is brilliant. That bit near the end with the crazy little synth arpeggio behind Olaf's rap is one of the best all time house party moments.

it's more, people are having this hysterical overreaction to this dude as if he's some brand new circle of awful hell rather than someone who is pretty clearly operating in a paradigm that's been sending hits to the charts for 20 years

Pretty much all of my issues with Harris are tied up with his voice and persona, which were heavily prevalent on "I Like The Girls" and "Born In The 80s"; those records really were some brand new circle of awful hell. He was a dickhead in interviews and the like at that time as well.

Fear and loathing seem somewhat overdone if he's just producing chintzy circus organ dance-pop now, but if he opens his mouth on the new record then all bets are off.

lol @ this being a carbon copy of "We Found Love" with Ne-Yo subbing in for Rihanna

one year passes...

I just looked at his wikipedia page... that "Sweet Nothing" song is getting some radio play in the US and aside from the horrible Rihanna song it's his highest charting single. But in the UK his last six songs have gone 2-2-2-2-1-6 and both albums #1. Is he totally unavoidable on UK radio/in clubs etc?

i don't know if actual djs in actual clubs actually play him but yeah he's all over the radio, drinking from the bottle being the current irritant

I can't imagine any DJ with any kind of rep ever playing Calvin Harris, but he's probably ubiquitous in high street nightclubs (ie most of the clubs in the UK).

"thinking about you" is such a good song

yeah it's much better than his other recent stuff, i was actually surprised it was him. naturally it is not getting nearly as much american radio play as his other songs did.

horrifyingly, i kind of enjoy the rita ora single which is his handiwork i think *ducks*

ginuwine's cousin (monotony), Monday, 5 May 2014 02:32 (three years ago) Permalink

"Summer" is ok but seems like a rewrite of "Feel So Close" (which I kind of liked *ducks*)

Vinnie, Monday, 5 May 2014 13:14 (three years ago) Permalink

the synth line of the chorus to summer is beyond parody, like something from page 2 of "john thompson's elementary guide to the piano"

TracerHandVEVO (Tracer Hand), Monday, 5 May 2014 14:36 (three years ago) Permalink

not into "summer" at all

dyl, Monday, 5 May 2014 16:01 (three years ago) Permalink

'summer' is aite. i still think 'i'm not alone' is the best, such a dumb song i love
