Seems to have temporarily exorcised Call Me Maybe, but after two listens I think I'm done for now.
The album from which it derives is also generally good listening.
Also, this video is kinda neat: note the single take and all the off-camera action.
This has been on my 'Stupid songs I like' rotation for nearly a year now. Aaaaaaand now it's playing in my earbuds again.
This is by far the least embarrassing song on the list.
Sadly Clear Channel fell down the same hole, so it's the only Metric song they ever play.
I'm sorry, you must be mistaken, because it sounds like you're talking about listening to songs on the radio, and nobody has done that since before Metric formed as a band.
I did actually try listening to this "radio" thing recently, and discovered an interesting fact. They actually pay bozos called "DJs" to interrupt the music with inane prattle. True story.
I was born in Russia, but moved away when I was ten. Recently, someone recommended listening to Russian radio via streaming.
Turns out, it's just as miserable as American radio, but thanks to a new-found burst of nationalism, the very first song I heard was some poppy take on the Russian anthem. It was like listening to a soviet version of American Idol.
BBC Radio 6Music. Eff Tee Double-U.
Their motto is, if you don't like what's playing now, you'll probably like what's on next. And because it's the beeb, there's no adverts, well, except a few for other BBC stuff, but nothing compared to commercial radio.
Also TripleJ in Australia is pretty good (and equally no adverts).
DAB (UK-only digital) or Online (IP-restricted UK only) only. Still good though. Sadly mostly still playlist driven for the daily shows, so whilst the playlist is pretty good, it still gets repetitive.
I'm pretty sure non UK people can listen live on the internet, it's just iPlayer they're barred from, and IP blocking is hardly foolproof.
Yep, I don't think there's any country block of BBC radio via the website (I can listen from NZ).
Metric songs would be better with a vocalist who can belt it out. She sounds like she needs to sit down for a minute.
This is my favorite song by them. It's been out a while though. Could it be I discovered something before you? surely not.
As it was my favorite album of 2009, no, sorry. (They also placed on the 2006 list!)
Well you know.. the lyme eats my brains. I have a terrible memory.
