critical reading for the rude

nostalgic music meme

Top hundred music in the 90s mostly sucked… So this meme I’m tagged with from CW is tricky. I think I’ll mutate it. Here are the 5 top songs that came across my Pandora page in the last couple weeks and why Pandora says I like them so much.

Frank Zappa. Camarillo Brillo, 1973.

mixed acoustic and electric instrumentation
a busy horn section
major key tonality

John Lennon. I Found Out, 1970.

Morrissey: Boy Racer, 1998.

My Bloody Valentine, Sometimes, 1991.
