Is that anywhere near Yellowcards 'Ocean Avenue'? Feels like poor city planning.



I know you’re making a joke but I decided to look it up and Ocean Avenue is about Jacksonville, FL.

I mean, Yellowcard is originally from Jacksonville, yes, but every beach community I’ve ever been to has an Ocean Avenue or something close to it



Oh yeah there’s one in just about every shore point in Jersey. Just meant the one the song/album is referencing

This entire time I thought it was about Santa Monica.

Well today I learned I thought it was just made up.

Lana del Rey in her Mark Kozelek era. I really enjoyed the album, personally. The songs were great, the lyrics were surprisingly funny, and the production was gorgeous and varied in genre.

Holy shit, you just compared two of my favorite artists in a way I never would have thought to. And it makes perfect sense.

It took this long for someone to finally cover Yellowcard?

If you drive down ocean Blvd long enough it becomes ocean avenue

I thought this song was an old one, like 10 years old

Yeah, there's absolutely nothing special about this song or the album. Musicality is mids, vocals are good, but overall, just very average. Weird that it's number 1. I doubt it will stay there for very long.

Its a great song. It deserves its placement.


dafuq8916 t1_jegy131 wrote

I disagree. Its overall vibe is so blasé; boring even. The mediocre musicianship distracts from the pleasant sound of her voice. It's a mess. I'm appalled that anyone can hear this song and think it's good, much less deserving of a number 1 spot on any chart.

Have you taken a gander at other songs that have reached #1? Musicianship doesn’t appear to have ever been a priority

Lately I have been listening to her older albums and thinking... People will talk about Lana Del Ray in 40+ years. She will go down in history much like Ella Fitzgerald.

Really? I just listened to that song the other day and it was incredibly average. Not terrible, but in no way was it anywhere near a "good" song.

Do you have a say in what makes it to no. 1 in Australia?


dafuq8916 t1_jeg0y4o wrote

No. I don't. Do you? Not that it matters whether you, or I, do, it's just an opinion. This is a music sub. I posted my opinion on the music. In the music sub.

Didn’t they upgrade the way these graphs work to include when the song is used in tik toks and Instagram reals? So it ends up just pumping their numbers through Superfans listening to albums even if it’s subpar.
