The Pixies reunion kinda got swept under the rug by the indie culture.
"The Gold Standard" by Prince
A podcaster recently said "thank goodness for this song". It's a weird quasi-throwback to Prince's Sexy MF days, but also 70s Parliament Funkadelica.
"Monuments" by the Smashing Pumpkins
Corgan's opening lyrics are "I feel alright/I feel alright, tonight". The chorus is just beautiful and warming.
SONG OF THE YEAR
"Seeds" by TV on the Radio
There isn't much else in rock 'n roll today that can make me dance like TVOTR.
