90's Hit Parade #75

Elastica - Connection

Slick, high-gloss pop from a rock band, like the INXS of the 90's. No, that's not quite right. Garbage are the INXS of the 90's, and Elastica are like the cool version of Garbage. Oh hell, I don't know, this is just a really cool pop song. I like how it starts out with a stiff, fake DEVO beat (it was years later that I found out they were ripping off a Wire song), then ESPLODES into this full rock sound punctuated by descending guitar stabs. I don't have a lot to say about this song, I just think it's awesome, and I'm trying to get this done quickly before I have to leave. ONE QUARTER THROUGH, BITCHES!
