Lest I be mistaken for one who fears artistic evolution, me on Stephen Malkmus for Stylus.
I just realized that if you put together "good-hearted pop-metal" and "world class sex rhymes" you get my second favorite single of the 90s, Prince's "Gett Off." My favorite is Sugar Ray's "Someday," which makes me ashamed of the way I tend to cynically compartmentalize my musical tastes. By celebrating "Someday," I reveal my interest in humanity itself, with all the pain and beauty it entails.
I promise to stop talking about this starting now.
