Listomani: The Replacements – deres bedste og værste

7. maj 2015

Det er snart længe siden, jeg har gjort noget ved listomanien. SÃ¥ da jeg faldt over en radiostations forsøg pÃ¥ at opstille en kvalitativ liste over genopstandne Replacements sange – 149 stk. ialt – sÃ¥ mÃ¥tte jeg lige linke til den. Sangen “Here comes a regular” topper og fÃ¥r flg. ord med pÃ¥ vejen, som man sÃ¥ kan være enige i eller ikke. Men i hvert fald er listen en god anledning til at lytte til netop dette fortræffelige band:

1. “Here Comes a Regular” (Tim) – This song, the longest ever included on a Replacements album, is a bittersweet study of barflies. There’s a tenderness there, in the briefly glimpsed moments in an Everytown bar (widely thought to be inspired by the C.C. Club in Minneapolis), but also a loneliness and a fleeting recognition of an increasingly wasting life. With a few simple acoustic guitar chords (not too far afield from “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door”), some keyboards, and Westerberg’s emotional vocals, you tend to want to turn your own collar up against the chill by the end. It was a personal enough statement that Westerberg didn’t want anyone watching him in the recording studio when he performed it.”
