Yep one of the best song of the 90's all genres .

Yuppp, british bands in the late 80s/early 90s really had the shoe gaze sub-genre on lock, I wish it stuck around for longer tbh
Bittersweet Symphony in particular is so quintessential though because my fellow british fonts know that its practically the theme song for any English sports team lmao. the violins are so iconic

Or is it me or does the Nirvana “come as you are” guitar riff sound eerily similar to eighties by killing joke?

Omg I had no idea that “hanging on the telephone” wasn’t originally by Blondie!

So true and that's one of my favourite songs by them.
They are amazing live.
First time i ever heard this song was on car driving at night , this was one of the best experience , like travelling on a spaceship , i dont even know how to explain the feeling was amazing .

Nice list! What do you think of St. Vincent's new songs? I sort of miss the aesthetic of the last album but I'm impressed with what I've heard thus far. I hope I can see her live one day...

These are some of my favs from her:

This 4AD Session made me start stanning her lol. The Strange Mercy album is top tier.

Strange Mercy fans... in the flesh (well on LSA lmao).
