    Also, given the various genres included, shouldn't it really just become the Pop Music HoF?

      Me too.

      In order, I would admit (tastes aside, for their original and creative contribution to American music):

      1. Carole King (wonderful writer, horrific performer)
      2. Todd Rundgren (zzz, great studio visionary)
      3. NY Dolls (for burning down the BS of the prior two)
      -- gap --
      4. Devo (for the sheer joy of the middle finger that is the soul of R&R)
      5. Tina Turner (for being the black less talented Dolly Parton)
      -- large gap --
      6. RATM (energy)
      7. Foo Fighters (sales)
      8. Dionne Warwick (I'm guessing we could scrape 10 R&B songs out from under the gunk)

      Nobody else makes my ballot.

                  She already is, as a songwriter. This is for performing artist.

                  • Taylor Swift has released her first full re-recorded song, and it's Love Story. The full re-recording release of the "Fearless - Taylor's Version" album is coming within weeks, and it includes six songs that were cut from the original release.

                    Here's a mashup of both versions of Love Story:

                    Use headphones.

                    The rerecording is much more confidant and crisp.

                    • The more I understand Westerberg's lyrics the more impressed I am. Hard pressed to think of anybody his age plus or minus ten with the same combination of intelligence and soul.

                      • Some of his solo stuff can be a bit cringing; like McCartney, he's lost his fastball. Or maybe he's just cruising. But when he's good, he's really, really good. Especially for a former high school janitor.



                        The man's a real talent, the kind that comes along rarely in a generation. Doesn't have a great voice, but he's a really compelling singer. And I've seen him do solo shows a couple times, and he's a surprisingly good guitar player for mope loser. On his own, he plays a rather unique rhythm/lead hybrid style.

                        • Having grown up on the Mats it took time getting used to their last 2 records and then 14 Songs, Westerberg's first solo release. I'm still not fully sold on Don't Tell a Soul nor All Shook Down, but there are some genuine rockers and powerful slower numbers reflective of a songwriting genius. I very much enjoy Suicaine Gratification, Stereo, Eventually and Folker, and don't sleep on The I Don't Cares (a collaboration with Juliana Hatfield) nor Grandpa Boy (alter ego I guess with Tommy Stinson on bass).

                          • Eventually and Folker are hit and miss with me. Some genuinely great stuff and a lot of dreck. Haven't got anything of his since.

                            I still think Stereo/Mono is the best thing he's done as a solo artist.

                              • "Nevermind" by Nirvana turns 30 and "Jagged Little Pill" by Alanis turns 26 this year. I'm starting to feel OLD.
