What the world needs now is a new Frank Sinatra …

“Teach Us to Love You,” Mike Roe, Kate Miner
Tear for Tear,” The Choir
Tear in Your Hand,” Tori Amos

Tear Off Your Own Head (It’s a Doll Revolution),” Elvis Costello
Teardrop,” Jose Gonzalez
Teardrops,” The Proclaimers
Tearin’ Up My Heart,” NSYNC
Tears,” Stone Roses
Tears Before Bedtime,” Elvis Costello & The Attractions
Tears Like Flowers,” Sarah Masen
Tears of Rage,” The Band
“Technology,” Green
Teddy Picker,” Arctic Monkeys
Teen Angst (What the World Needs Now),” Cracker
Teen Angst (What the World Needs Now),” Cracker/Leftover Salmon
“Teen King,” Randy Stonehill
Teenage Lobotomy,” The Ramones
Teenage Wildlife,” David Bowie
Teenagers,” My Chemical Romance

“Teenage Lobotomy” is great, but it’s not my favorite Ramones song. My favorite is that one … oh, what’s it called? It’s the really loud and fast one that starts, “1-2-3-4!”

"There's actually one touring right now!"

LBCF, No. 193: ‘Inaction heroes’
"Maybe we should have them sweep through Europa. Then we get rid of the terrorists ..."

LBCF, No. 193: ‘Inaction heroes’
"Also the little old lady from Sinfest."

"Jackie Chan has demonstrated that they're quite capable weapons, in the right hands."

    “Tears in Rain” – Vangelus (from the Blade Runner OST)
    And that’s it. But I really love that track.

    I do wonder if some of my tracks from my CD of traditional Okinawan music would qualify for these lists, or do they not count because the tracks are in kanji?

  • Personally, I prefer M83’s Teen Angst.

  • Rick

    Green were occasionally wonderful and frequently frustrating as hell — such squandered potential. They put out a record called _R.E.M._ after R.E.M. put out _Green_, which has led me to ask in recent days whether Bad Religion should put out a song called “Frank Ocean”.

  • “Teenagers, Kick our Butts” — Dar Williams.

    “Teenage Lobotomy” is great, but it’s not my favorite Ramones song. My favorite is that one … oh, what’s it called? It’s the really loud and fast one that starts, “1-2-3-4!”

    I get the joke, but my favorite Ramones song is “My Brain is Hanging Upside Down (Bonzo Goes to Bitburg)” which doesn’t really fit that description.

    Until you can find a new Sinatra, Harry Connick Jr is a reasonable approximation.
