  1. Green Baron gave reputation to Andrew in Andrew's Top 25 Songs of 2015   
    6:
    "Roman Holiday" - Halsey - 'Badlands'
    Halsey was one of the artists who I felt most bad about enforcing my strict "one song" rule, because without such a restriction, she might have broken the top ten two or three times, let alone the entire list.  Picking my favorite Halsey song was a challenge and one that ultimately led me to my first favorite Halsey song.  When I was first falling in love with 'Badlands,' one of the year's very best albums, "Roman Holiday" was the song that first sunk it's tremendous hooks into me.  I love the little bits of reverb, the smooth and soulful verses, and that absolutely whopper of a chorus.  Not only is the hook wickedly strong but I just adore it lyrically, since it doesn't fall back on easy repetition or other obnoxiously easy paths to being an earworm.  "Roman Holiday" is strong because it's a beautiful, saccharine song, full of little details and notes that spring up for the first time even after you've listened twenty times.  I've also emphasized several times how much vocals can make or break a song for me, but "Roman Holiday" is brilliantly produced through or through, and Halsey's tremendously emotive voice is just the icing on the cake.  This is a complete package song, which just goes to show how strong the top five is...

    I for one absolutely believe Manning when he said he didn't take anything. I'll believe a stand-up guy, role model and good person like Manning before some ISIS news network.

    Yeah, I personally think 5 Seconds of Summer are crapola, but they're only like 1 or 2 steps away from the All Time Low (who, granted, I also think are crapola)

    you forget that this is the worst app ever conceived in the history of time and it doesn't have drafting

    After thinking about it a little more, I was wrong with what I said. CC is a great teammate, always wants to be out there and he had a pretty good September. I doubt he'd time this to coincide with the start of the playoffs in order to avoid pitching.

    So just because it is about some guy catching his girlfriend cheating on him means it's a bad song?

    Ohh I almost forgot, anything about sex is automatically labeled as "Cock Rock" and thus hated.

    And here I was thinking Anberlin had it in the bag. Should have cancelled voting after the first day.

    So all season during Mets games the kiss cam has for one shot shown two guys on the opposing team sitting next two each other. And now because of fan "outrage" the Mets have decided to stop doing this. It's a shame the politically correct movement has sucked all the fun out of life. It seems like the only comedy that is acceptable nowadays is junk like Jimmy Fallon.

    In my opinion, it's all liquid under the support structure.
  21. Green Baron received reputation from NinjaNick101 in MM2015 Sweet Sixteen: Starset vs. Anberlin   
    I saw it was like 7-1 Anberlin and thought they had in the bag but then you guys had to go shit on the going out parade.

    Well now it's time for a better band that makes even catchier more enjoyable tunes to advance.

    Says the guy who creates a thread shortly after I create my own idea (which while not the same as this, is very similar) during your "baby's" (TL Picks) hiatus.  

    Fuck off Andrew.

    SOMST is great. Disintegration almost made the cut, and their cover of Heatmiser's Half Right is awesome.

    Pen, make sure it still censors Harty's swears with funny words.
