prince made way too much rock to be called a non-rocker. he was definitely a rock star. and a pop star. and the king of r&b.

i always had a soft spot for the rocking tracks on pop records. the more Slash-like guitar solos the better. cuz i'm a rock fan....

what's the most rock madonna song?

i might like "free your mind" as much as "black cat".

Reminds me of my sadly unloved When Soft Rockers Rock Out thread.

Any street drink I've bought has been kids pouring from a 5-gallon jug of Kirkland lemonade into a Dixie thimble.

Lemonade is carbonated in the UK? So every lemonade is basically lemony Sprite?

yes.

shandy is good, refreshing, use as cheap a lager as you like, cheaper the better really. also nice is a lager tops, essentially a shandy but with only a small amount of lemonade on the top, very high beer to lemonade ratio.

-_- (jim in glasgow), Tuesday, 26 April 2016 18:37 (three years ago) link

Is a radler different from a shandy or is it just rebranding?

as far as tart and beer goes i mostly get that from the excellent sour red belgians on the market. god i love that stuff. americans can have ALL the headbusting IPAs they want. just lemme have my belgians and germans. a lemon wedge in a nice german wheat beer is a fine way to say hello to summer. (you can quote me on that)

scott seward, Tuesday, 26 April 2016 18:45 (three years ago) link

xp. radler is like a half and half sparkling lemonade and lager iirc. whereas shandy, if you order it in a british pub, would probably have more beer than lemonade - though i don't think there is an established ratio.

-_- (jim in glasgow), Tuesday, 26 April 2016 18:52 (three years ago) link

wow, that "gon' b alright" song from janet's 2015 album is some serious late 80's/early 90's retrodelica. like instead of jack white she got the soup dragons or primal scream to write a song with her.

I thought a radler was brewed with lemon, whereas a shandy was lager mixed with lemonade? But it's hard to tell now, since you can buy thirty different readymade shandies/radlers in stores once the summer seasonals start coming out.

Tom Violence, Tuesday, 26 April 2016 20:14 (three years ago) link

radlers should be really gross but i gotta say i kinda like them, anytime i've been in berlin and it's roasting, a 50 cent radler hits the spot. i also like the word "radler".

i think radler is lemonade but i dunno. there are more craft type radlers around now i guess but i just had like commercial german lager versions.

On 26 April 1997, American television network ABC aired a one-hour prime time special about Pop and the PopMart Tour, titled U2: A Year in Pop. Narrated by actor Dennis Hopper, the documentary featured footage from the Pop recording sessions, as well as live footage from the opening PopMart show in Whitney, which took place the night before.The program received poor reception, ranking at 101 out of 107 programs aired that week, according to Nielsen ratings, and became the lowest rated non-political documentary in the history of the ABC network.

For a second I was all "what about the one Madonna song that sounded like Smack My Bitch Up?" But then I realized I was thinking of Smack My Bitch Up. Whose video of course was made with the same director as Ray of Light. And Prodigy was on Maverick.

Since Prince's death, I've been going online and seeing things that I want to click on but something keeps stopping me.

I haven't been able to read more than a couple of tributes, I don't have the energy to go and search out Lemonade or read the 1231435 Beyonce thinkpieces, I haven't seen the new Game of Thrones or Veep episodes. it's just... so many goddamn OPINIONS.

I need a break so badly but I'm stuck compulsively scrolling through twitter and facebook all day, mostly because it's part of my job but also out of sheer habit.

Roz, Wednesday, 27 April 2016 04:56 (three years ago) link

first Game of Thrones episode wasn't all that exciting. I watched that post show talk thing with the people who think they are funny but are about as entertaining as local news anchors. That was less entertaining than the episode.

sarahell, Wednesday, 27 April 2016 06:22 (three years ago) link

Eye have no desire 2 listen 2 Lemonade, and eye probably never will. Besides, life is 2 short 2 listen 2 a concept record about a pair 'o' cunts that eye could not be any less interested in.

I'm not that familiar with Hilton Als' writing, but I've now read two jazz-related pieces by him this month (that one and the Pitchfork interview with Sonny Rollins), and neither impressed me.

Ha, it never occurred to me to think that pink lemonade was pink because of anything other than a dye.
