MUSIC

 » The Top 30 Albums of 2010 - Fashionably, fabulously late, our favorite music (and believe me, there was a LOT) of 2010, the year that some have called the best year for music ever. And only some of those fools work here. Plenty of usual suspects, lots of ties and a few surprises that I won't spoil, including our unexpected #1.

Rating: 7/10 ?


October 25, 2007
Expecting a band, it was more than a little surprising when some guy jumped on stage for Pleaseeasaur's set and started singing goofy songs accompanied by equally goofy projected visuals and props. Costumes where even involved, as I think I remember the singer wearing a giant Christmas tree outfit. As if not already enough of a spectacle, Pleaseeasaur songs were about "Shit Brown Camaros" and how "Strangers Have the Best Candy."

Pleaseeasaur has become a borderline legend amongst my group of friends. The name will come up ever so randomly, all of us laughing as we think about the time that they were the first opening "band" on a bill long since forgotten. Having seen them a very long time ago, I was shocked when I came to possess information that the group had recently released a comedy album. Alas, listening to Pleaseeasaur's songs is a poor substitute for seeing them performed live.

I guess it speaks highly of the group that so many years later I can still recall Pleaseeasaur's performance, even though I have absolutely no idea who followed them that night or what night it even was. Unfortunately, The Amazing Adventures of Pleaseeasaur, while funny enough for a 7/10 rating, does nothing to enhance that memory.
