It sucks. Mostly an R&B feel, but cheezy and uneffected.

So, it sounds kinda like corporate rock?

What the heck is wrong with me. I'm actually finding myself getting hooked on the "unwanted" song. Most of the way through my second listen.

Xydexx was right about listening to that just before you go to sleep. Not exactly a good thing to do. I had that children's choir WalMart thing in my head as I dropped off to sleep. Fortunately, I can't remember my dreams, so I don't know if it involved roaming female operatic singers in full Wagnerian gear rapping inside a WalMart with angelic harp music introductions.

Gads. That 'Most Wanted Song' is indeed very bland. Although I found the one male vocalist amusing as he kind of overdid the gravel singing.

Although, honestly, I *hate* that fucking saxophone. I have never liked that kind of saxophone work in a piece of music. I often refer to that kind of saxophone work as 'vomiting into the sax'.

The "Most Wanted Song" confirms my theory about music: if you start listening to Adult Contemporary, you don't really like music anymore.

Hmm, this "unwanted" song is mildly entertaining but mostly simply "meh". Also, there are too many breaks, they should have condensed it more, like Snog does.. Anyway, Mr. Bungle or SPK are slightly more "unwanted" to a broader audience, I guess.

Unwanted up to the bagpipes.  I think if you do fall of the brink of easy listening, you need a re-charge with your old classic stacks of wax.

I have pulled some out of mothballs and have been streaming some old stuff.  Kinda fun.  I appreciate the older stuff more and it makes the stuff the kids listen to tolerable to even fun sometimes ;-)

Do some Snakefinger and then some Talking Heads 77, and then mix in some Black Flag, and finish it off with some XTC (does not matter what album) ***

*** Mix in whatever you have laying around.  It does not matter, as long as you have saved it.  Go to a place where you can stay hidden for a while, and don the giant headphones - long ass cord- or if you can get away with it speakers and jam.  In lieu of some spot in your own abode (w/o sad soul shared space)... get out there with a boom box in a field, or if your car is capable drive to somewhere and do an hour or two by yourself with your tunes.  Might want to bring along a spare charged battery with a good charge in case you overstep your bounds of jam bandwidth.  Have fun!

Re-share with a significant other might be in order.  Or it might not.  I will post what I find :-)

Have you listened to XTC as a completely different band name? Gr, can't quite remember the name, but they released one or two albums of psychadelic music under a different name.

Ah, there it is.

The Dukes of Stratosphear. The first of these that they made was "25 O'Clock", released 1 April 1985.

Hey, you never know when the kids will take a liking to something you're listening to ... new, old, or whatever.

My 14yo has taken to listening to some of my favorite guitar wizards (Satriani, Vai, etc) and later on, I happened to be listening to some 1980's era Genesis, which is now how absolute favorite even though they haven't played in years.

Do your 14yo a musical favor and introduce the kid to 1970s Genesis. Albums like Foxtrot, Selling England By the Pound, and that incomparable live album, Seconds Out.

And along the way, immerse yourself in "Supper's Ready," Genesis' absolute masterpiece. The problem being that they created "Supper's Ready" in 1972 at the beginning of their career on the world stage. It's really difficult for any group of musicians to "outdo themselves" when they produced their very best at their (almost) very beginning.

The 70's stuff was definitely a more prog rock sound, which is great for me, but for him ... we're working up to that.

Back "in the day" (1979-1982) I played multi-keyboards in a band called Sentinel - we did the south Jersey circuit.

We opened with a set of classic rock.
Then a set of Pink Floyd (first half of The Wall, then some Dark Side).

Then the Genesis Set:
Watcher of the Skies
Squonk
Horizons (guitar solo)
Supper's Ready
Then the Encore:
Los Endos / Dance on a Volcano

The crowd would go nuts. The final bit, after all that, was:
Starship Trooper (Yes)
Followed by me saying "can we *please* go home now?"

Four nights a week doing that. LOADS of work.
It was wonderful!!

"There's an angel standing in the sun
and he's crying with a loud voice:
'This is the supper of the Mighty One."
Lord of Lords; King of Kings
Has returned to lead His children home,
To take them to the new Jerusalem."

over here Guitar Hero / WII takes the part of bridging that music into the next generation - and does a pretty good job at it.

nowadays you get it pretty cheap on ebay...
