    Can I rate that a 0? OK, how about 0./10. There was no part of that which was actually good. You must be blinded by nostalgia.

    Before anyone gets offended by this one, please realize that Ian Dury was crippled by polio at a young age.

    always liked Ian Dury and the Blockheads and their quirky sound
    but I'm giving this one
    5/10 - less melodic than their other stuff
    I think I'd prefer to listen to it as part of a mix of his stuff rather than just by itself as a stand-alone tune

    from the same era

    If you want to compare a Smiths song to anything, you compare it to every other song ever written. In that vein, 9.9/10 - only misses the full 10/10 because it's not an actual video.

    But this is pretty good, too:

    --------------------------------

    I can't wait for Bieber to enter his Sebastian Bach era. That song was a solid 3/10.

    How about this Nick Cave cover?

    the ship song project
    3/10
    aside from the original song being just a wee bit too slow and melancholy sounding for my taste, this version is just too distracting as it transitions between the various artists

    here's something that I find both a wee bit upbeat and a wee bit melancholy

    Cy seems to be having some Bowie-related flashbacks!

    Ziggy Starfish - Open Mike Eagle
    7.5/10 - - I liked it quite a bit, but I kept waiting for it to break out into some rap version of ziggy stardust

    and I liked the Anna Calvi "Desire" a lot - intriguing sound
    8/10 from me

    It's a sterling example of a style that doesn't really move me. 6/10

    Here's a track that's pretty much the antithesis of current pop music:

    Bowie - Blackstar
    5.5/10

    strangely alluring - interesting transitions in the quirky sound with a video that seemed like animated versions of Robert Mapplethorpe's photographic subjects against a background drawn by M.C. Escher

    Here's one:
    Neko Case - Hold On, Hold On
