  1. At first, I thought I’d hate it, but this is pretty excellent.And hey, no comment on the awful Snatchfork top 200 songs of the ’60s? I could go on for days, I could …

  2. Yeah, but funny thing, the Lemoneads covered “Time of the Season” live around the time of Lovey. Dando was always known for taking a great song and doing it justice. So Mr. Parnell, your Zombies cover was actually inspired by Dando and his crew of revolving hipsters. Good for you!Tomorrow you will post a cover of Luka and ask, “Why couldn’t the Lemonheads be this clever?”

  3. Actually, I posted a Zombies cover because my father had their original singles on vinyl and I grew up listening to them. I also saw the Zombies reunion two years ago, I am that much a fan. Dando, in 2004, I believe, was still trying to pretend he wasn’t still a junkie, mainly by showing up very drunk to live shows around the county. And while I was listenign to those Zombies singles, Dando, meanwhile, was a dirty skate rat outside of Massachusetts, hitting on his best friends little sister, who I went to college with sometime later. She said he smelled like goat. Lemonheads’ cover of Time of the Season was horrible. A huge mistake, like that insipid sellout version of “Mrs. Robinson.” Their best cover was “Amazing Grace,” or “Brass Buttons.”

  4. As for the Felchfork Best singles of the 60s, I said nothing simply for that very reason you mention – I could go on for days, and I don’t have days. It’ll take me six weeks just to settle on a possible top ten. And yeah, that cover by Snowden was such a risk, I listened to it for the first time with my eyes squinched shut and my shoulders contorted, but then I was happily and slowly relaxed when it didn’t suck. Not bowled over by Snowden’s own stuff, but this was nice.

  5. Lemonheads’ cover of Time of the Season was horrible. A huge mistake.Mr. Parnell:I actually made that up, the Lemonheads never covered Time of the Season. I just wanted to know if you were basing your Dando hate on his music or on polemics. Now I know.

  6. You got me! Wow. Neat trick. But I’m still basing my (current) Dando hate on his shitty new single, on which J Mascis sounds like Richie Sambora. Polemics keep me interested. It’s a weakness.Mascis + Dando = Asia
