    This blew my mind when I first heard it, today its very existence is infuriating and I feel sort of embarrassed that I needed fucking Liars, of all bands, to introduce me to ESG. Yes I know they're far from the first group to sample this and definitely wouldn't be the last but they do it what's probably the least creative and definitely the least reverential way possible. Of course, everyone was too excited that they were 'teaching the indie rockers to dance' or whatever to call them out on it.

    This is 11 years old now and this isn't the thread I wanted to do this in but I just needed to get that off my chest.

    I remember hearing "Mr. Your [sic] on Fire Mr." at Tower Records in Schaumburg, thinking what is this amazing new sound?!, and asking the cool girl at the counter about it. Impressed she made it through that conversation without giving the watkid face to an office worker in khakis.

    I like the second one too, but yeah, the vocals are much too processed/saturated/etc. Modern pop music is compressed enough without running the melody through a Pringles can.

    Unsurprisingly, my token "SNL sucks" facebook friend, who is apparently a masochist because he keeps watching it, posted a GET OFF MY LAWN-esque takedown of Haim after tonight's show.

    Ha.

    They made for very convincing 80's teenagers in that "song that's like 'Jesse's' Girl' but isn't 'Jesse's Girl'" sketch.

    Homophobia is real, the world is a dangerous place for kids like you, and you won't survive without the support of someone like me compassionate enough to actually accept you.

    I wanna see you be brave. No, I don't want to see you overcome bullshit prejudices or change society because that would put me out of a job. Just be brave, okay?

    “You can be amazing. You can turn a phrase in to a weapon or a drug. You can be the outcast or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love or you can start speaking up,” croons pop performer Sara Bareilles on her latest single, “Brave.”

    The song, which she wrote with Fun lead guitarist Jack Antonoff, is destined to become an LGBT anthem for the ages and was inspired by one of Bareilles’s close friends, who was struggling with coming out of the closest.

    Antonoff applauds the track’s LGBT appeal, noting that while the song will undoubtedly take on a variety of meanings for different people it will always be linked to the current civil rights movement in his mind. “I’ll always internalize it as a real civil rights anthem at a time when there are no civil rights anthems and there’s a giant need for [them],” he said in a recent video interview promoting the single.

    “I think there’s so much honor and integrity and beauty in being able to be who you are,” Bareilles said, citing one of the many reasons she was compelled to write the lyrics for the song. “It’s important to be brave because by doing that you also give others permission to do the same.”

    the song from those Windows commercials is a Sara Bareilles song called "Brave"?

    Had no idea about the LGBTQ message of the song but found it strange Microsoft would want to describe the decision to buy one of their products as "brave".

    I guess I've heard this at least 20 times before but never listened to it all the way through until it came on the radio the other day.

    This song doesn't even feel finished but I guess it was still a big hit and has people calling him the next Trent Reznor or something?

    His old band (Under the Influence of Giants) is much better than AWOLNATION. Still kind of d-baggy rock for guys whose girlfriends are into Gavin DeGraw, but less growly & more melodic, with a healthy dose of white man overbite funk/disco. Sounds like Barry Gibb and Fischerspooner tried to make a hit AOR record and missed the mark by a decade in either direction.

    people with bad taste are really into incoherent "mood music" shit with overwrought vocals. i had some girl send me the "Sail" video after she had me watch multiple Gotye videos. i agree with what your saying about the incompleteness. it's like there's half a song in the vocal melody and half a song in the music that people misinterpret as a complete idea.
