Random Playlist For 2002:
1. The Vines-Get Free
Even if it was Nirvana to the T, it was brief fun from the lads from down under.
2. Red Hot Chili Peppers-By The Way
Probably their best chorus in their later years...
3. Wilco-Jesus, Etc.
The strings make the song...and Tweedy's lyrics...
4. Bruce Springsteen-The Rising
In the wake of 9-11 came the tribute from the boss. Kind of resurrected his career.
Queens Of the Stone Age-No One Knows
The year QOTSA made their deepest impression.
6. Justin Timberlake-Rock Your Body
Everywhere in 2002. I repeat everywhere.
7. Spoon-The Way We Get By
We get high in the back seats of cars AND break into mobile homes!
8. Beck-Lost Cause
Beck showed a softer side...and it worked exceptionally!
9. Elvis Presley vs. Junkie XL-A Little Less Conversation
A fun mash up! Makes me want to go watch an Ocean's 17 movie!!!
10. The Roots-Seed 2.0
Would you name your baby Rock 'n Roll? Why not...
11. Flaming Lips-Do You Realize??
Besides battling robots, the Flaming Lips released this beauty in 2002.
The lack of chorus is forgiven for Martin's wonderful ivory tickling. Coldplay hit pay dirt here.
