03/23/2004: "slow jam."

Funny discussion of 'slow jamz' and 'anti-slow-jamz' over at Blissblog, but can I just say that I'm incredibly irritated that it's all dudes chiming in about how to get girls "in the mood"? Um, totally lame! Where are the girls who play music while making out with guys (OR with other girls), AND who maintain control over the stereo while doing so? And what kind of lame-ass makes out to Portishead in 2004, for fuck's sake?

And 'Metal Machine Music' an 'anti-slow-jam'? Come on! Live a little!

ok, i'm the one who wrote Portishead to Simon. The funny thing is: that was 1994, i didn't really like Portishead too much (not disliked anyway), it was my girfriend of that era who loved them to death, who mostly controlled the stereo at nights and who put that record (the first) in heavy rotation expecially when in the mood... now in 2004 if i listen to Portishead I will probably feel sick, since they are totally related in my mind to that era (1994-96 circa) and to the sour memory of that ex girfriend... bye!

francesco

p.s. if there is a girl who like to do it to "metal machine music" please get in touch....

francesco brunetti said @ 03/31/2004 02:34 PM EST

you cannot make out to nessun dorma by michael bolton - i know this unequivocally because i heard him singing it (live - aaarrrgghhh, even worse) on brit tv one morning a few years back, while in feminine company!!! (HEADLINE: MICHAEL BOLTON KILLED MY SEX LIFE!). as you must surely be able to imagine, it was truly fucking horrible, but hilarious at the same time - the bolton being "serious", no longer bemulletted and "doing" (for) the classics (i ask you, really...). so i guess i defend my choices. and anthony, i have credited the shouting at strippers line to you in a piece for the london times, so hopefully that might set the balance right!

"traditional white indie-chick aversion to smoove black loverman ballads"

maybe there's an aversion because it's such a fucking (ho ho) cliche?

tiger bomb said @ 03/23/2004 04:56 PM EST

also: i would put out for anybody who played ethel merman's disco record

zoe said @ 03/23/2004 04:51 PM EST

no way can music be better than making out w/ boys/girls

zoe said @ 03/23/2004 04:49 PM EST

I'm just sad he declined to include my noms in: Luna, Yo La Tengo, Low, all that languid indie-rock stuff. as far as "getting the ladeeez in da mood," I've never thought of it that way, particularly--just that the above-mentioned were/are really intimate in an inviting way.

Also: Steve Reich's Music for 18 Musicians!

M Matos said @ 03/23/2004 02:46 PM EST

I thought guys only used music to get girls "in the mood" in shitty movies (I listen to decent slow jams for my own entertainment, thank ya very much). "Slowjamz" the song sucks ass too.

Anthony said @ 03/23/2004 02:38 PM EST

ugh. not only does their slowjamz list suck ass, Simon then credits my "Crunk = guys shouting at strippers" metaphor to Jess (though Jess gave me credit on his site)! lame lame lame...

Anthony said @ 03/23/2004 02:35 PM EST

(ps spizzazzz! haf moved)

mark s said @ 03/23/2004 12:43 PM EST

b-but metal machine music is INSTEAD of making out cz it's BETTER than making out w.mere yucky bois or grrlz!!
