104. The Velvet Underground & Nico - Venus in Furs

Genre: Experimental Rock, Art Rock
Sub-genres: Drone, Raga Rock, Psychedelic Rock, Psychedelic Rock, Noise Rock
Country: United States
Descriptors: drugs, sexual, raw, noisy, urban, eclectic, male vocals, nihilistic, avant-garde, female vocals, rebellious, hedonistic, dissonant, deadpan, apathetic, alienation, lo-fi, dark, psychedelic, introspective, poetic



The Velvet Underground is in some sense my greatest discovery, because I never expected a 60's band to do this with me... (or even 70's whatsoever). I liked The Doors (which are also not included yet, and will change that soon), but their first album is so perfect, and so amazing as well as some old that almost all their songs could be included (in that sense it's similar to Loveless). The album is so overwhelming that it feels wrong to put a song so high, because i couldn't justify it to the other songs of that album. I also should listen more to their second and third album, which I certainly like.

There are some other artists from the 60's and early 70's that were very promising but that I should explore more. I'm referring to Pink Floyd or more specifically Syd Floyd and also Can. There are some others that could do it (Black Sabbath, Jimi Hendrix, maybe The Stooges), but a lot just sounds good from other artists. It sounds good, but I have no incentive to play it more often, because it literally gets sunken in the sea of so many things to listen that i feel like i can't let those songs grow... and all what I lack in life is time to make those songs grow haha.

But Venus in Furs is such a song that is probably after Heroin the best song on their first album. And The Velvet Underground don't sound 60's at all, which is perhaps why I like it so much.

Sunday Morning for example was a song I initially didn't like that much... but the fact that I do now, perhaps is an indication that I shouldn't give up on like The Beatles or The Beach Boys... But yes, to include it in a top 250 is perhaps a bit of a stretch, given 99% of the music i listen is probably at least post-1980s, and probably around 85% is 2010's.

LOL. I already have at least 99 songs I want to include (and for some artists, i haven't even included songs yet, just the artist). At this rate, a top 250 won't be enough, but good i've been working on what I want to include. So i'll easily get to 250. Just have to order things a bit. But it's indeed a work in progression. Just will work on this when I want too :)

108. The Doors - The End

Genre: Psychedelic Rock, Art Rock
Sub-genres: Raga Rock, Spoken Word, Progressive Rock, Experimental Rock
Country: United States
Descriptors: psychedelic, drugs, poetic, sexual, dark, male vocals, cryptic, hedonistic, mysterious, nocturnal, existential, passionate, alcohol, sombre, alienation, melancholic, anxious



Perhaps i wouldn't rate it as well, without it's experience in Apocalypse Now which did put the song in a completely different dimension. But The Doors have plenty of other good songs, and perhaps some more will appear in the list. But I feel like this one needs to appear now (and maybe should have done it earlier).

Genre: Gothic Rock, Noise Rock, Darkwave
Sub-genres: Doom Metal, Sludge Metal, Psychedelic Rock
Country: United States
Descriptors: dark, sombre, atmospheric, female vocals, melancholic, surreal, nocturnal, ethereal, apocalyptic, ominous, psychedelic, sensual



I'm not always in the mood to listen this song, but when I do listen this, i always think I underestimate this so much, and that this song is much better than i consider it to be in my memory. So while it's not really addictive while i have that with a lot of other songs in this list, it's absolutely a superb song.

112. Charli XCX - Forever

Genre: Electropop, Glitch Pop, Hyperpop
Sub-genres: Bubblegum Bass, Alternative R&B, Art Pop
Country: United States
Descriptors: longing, love, noisy, female vocals, introspective, lonely, bittersweet, romantic, sentimental, energetic, melodic, passionate, sexual, futuristic, alienation, mechanical, eclectic, rhythmic, chaotic, anxious



I don't know what it is... I really didn't get the Charli XCX hype esp. before she released her lockdown album, but this lockdown album is the best "lockdown" album released for me personally. It's a milestone in the pop genre, esp. since i've listened to other hyperpop releases and I keep coming back to this although i've still much to explore (esp. SOPHIE who sadly passed away, seems to have been very important, and from what i've heard... i certainly understand that and A.G. Cook who helped produce this and needs more credit)

I didn't dislike Charli XCX and never did. I really liked Nuclear Seasons (i remember it being recommended here by Pretentious Hipster), but on this album her songs are even much better. I think this is by far the best electropop album ever to be released (if i don't forget anything, and taking the narrow definition of the genre. Art Angels comes close, but I think How i'm feeling now is slightly better).

The issue with this album is some i have with other albums. I have trouble choosing a song, because the entire album is full of absolutely great songs, and therefore i don't really have a song i like much more than the others. Even when i'm currently re-listening it, it's hard to choose one. I think i'm going with Forever, but it's possible (even likely) some other songs will appear to.

So far, this is I believe the best album of the decade, because the album is so consistent high quality but more importantly since a lot of other hyperpop songs or releases slightly disappointed me, i feel like she takes the genre to a next level.

Also, this album is certainly also a grower IMO. The reason why I believe this might be the best electropop album ever, is because I believe she actually embarasses a lot of 00's / 10's electropop artists who we heard a thousand times on the radio. She completely embarasses them and leave them far behind. It's just really embarassing for the entire music industry. She completely destroys it with one single album. That's what I feel about hearing this.

I know one thing for sure, i'll continue to enjoy this album a lot.

125. Lido Pimienta - Al Unisono Viajan

Genre: Art Pop, Electropop, Latin Alternative
Sub-genres: Folktronica, Latin Electronic, Freak Folk
Country: Colombia
Descriptors: female vocals, passionate, warm, ethereal, love, hypnotic, rebellious, psychedelic, melodic, conscious



Yes, this is as weird as it sounds, but she's absolutely magnificent, and it's not just only this song. Extremely underrated. She will make more appearances.

Pimienta has partly Afro-Colombian and partly Wayuu (part of the Arawak culture group) roots, and she identifies as queer.
Her music incorporates a variety of styles and influences, including traditional indigenous and Afro-Colombian musical styles such as Cumbia and Bullerengue, as well as contemporary synthpop and electronic music.
And for what bullerengue is
Bullerengue is a music genre and dance style with origins in the Colombian Caribbean Coast, with strong relationship and importance to the development and history of the Cumbia genre in the country. Much like Cumbia in its origins, Bullerengue has roots in expressions of African Music music brought by slaves of said continent during the Spanish colonization of South and Central America, and it's known for being sung almost exclusively by females. Some of its main characteristics include a strong emphasis in rhythm and improvisation over melody (with a relative, though not entire, lack of woodwind and string instruments), employment of relatively large groups of musicians (usually not less than 12) and a call-and-response interaction between the lead singer (known as cantadora) and a choir. Bullerengue is associated with the music of artists like Petrona Martínez and Totó la Momposina.

Another album that is very consistent good, but also is one that doesn't let you uncover it's secrets from a first, second or third listen imo, because the deep layers beneath the wall of sound are well hidden, but unravel when you listen it multiple times, especially since this is complex and busy music. A lot is going on, and the melodies only unravel theirselves after you know those songs pretty well. In that sense, this song and esp. the entire album is a grower, but when it grows, you'll fucking love it till eternity & beyond.

Genre: Shoegaze, Dream Pop
Sub-genres: Neo-Psychedelia, Noise Pop
Country: United States
Descriptors: female vocals, male vocals, melancholic, warm, dense, sensual, love, noisy, ethereal



I zone out with this song.. everytime again. This and one other song are two songs i pretty much like. And this album is great. I'm less a fan of their earlier album Colour Trip and haven't listened to any other album (Mauve, God's Dream and self-named album). I think it's because I in particular love the guitar song on some songs on Pure Mood combined with the ethereal voice, but it has something i just don't find much anywhere else, despite them being named "another mbv rip-off", although every shoegaze band is getting killed by being named another shoegaze rip-off. But if we use that logic for all music, not much should be made anymore today lol.

And zoning out isn't always a good thing, i sometimes deliberately listen to this song to zone out, to release stress but also while self-harming i've played this song a lot, or at least when it was severe and almost killed myself with it (and indeed when going back with last.fm i played this song than), but I also played Interpol - Stella was a diver which was at the peak of my self-induced trance, and that was when I first listened to a song apart from their album, and it just clicked to me, so that song got a different meaning because of that at that point, and this is the second one, because it really reminds me of some experiences. It doesn't make the song bad as some of you might think.

That crescendo man is so otherworldly and epic. Another one of those growers of this album, where everything falls into one big piece falling together, with the melodies unraveling theirselves slowly.

Apparently the album is a concept album about a girl and her magic seal travelling to the Mesozoic era... I need to pay attention to those lyrics (if i'm able to understand them well enough, it's already pretty hard for indie rock).

Some reviewer said somewhere it's Feels by Animal Collective mixed with Loveless by My Bloody Valentine. I wholeheartedly agree haha.
