underappreciated ariel songs

Post by batmania » Fri Jul 15, 2011 1:47 am

post a lesser-known song that we might have overlooked due to it being tucked away on a more obscure release. i think honeymoon in the big apple from yas dudett is almost on par with politely declined.

don't look back
sensitive man

i remember listening to these two tracks, as well as underground, over and over on my ipod, ignoring the rest of the album...

also, the cover of dovers' "she's gone" from grandes exitos is amazing.

edit: oh, and "before today" is a classic. production-wise it sounds like he's still referring to the mt8x manualu..

It seems a bit as if "Lover Boy" in general got overlooked by some people here. Is this possible?
When I think of Ariel Pink's big 3 records I think of Doldrums, Worn Copy and Lover Boy. Which one I like best, often changes. But I think these three are all killer and no filler (almost, "Blew Strauss/Blue Straws" is really weird, but sometimes I like even that).

I definitely agree with GOX2. I spent hours with a tracklist just made up of the 3 versions I have of this song.

I personally think that, except for Reminiscences, everything on the Flashback 7" gets overlooked. The title track is just such a hit. But since it appears on no regular record, most people might not stumble upon it. I also love "Rama Ya", what used to be "Oreo Cookie" because it sounds like an indian punk band. And I simply adore "Phantasthma" ("Fantasm" on Odditties Sodomies). Such a mellow track.

The 2 "bonus" tracks to Before Today, Shades Away and Mistaken Wedding, also get overlooked. I actually like them better than most songs on the actual record, though I think, that without them, it sounds more coherent. In Mistaken Wedding I just love the line "Well, life ain't easy, every day is worth a lot. Life ain't easy and you know I drink a lot".
