    In my head I like to imagine LastDreamer in the land of Lithuania right now with a suitcase of simcards, a box of chocolates and a wedding ring. It would be a great base for an epic Eurovision fan fiction.

            OMG! I agree with you!

            Personally, I think that ABBA's music isn't my cup of tea but IF I want to go back listening to some cheesy stuff of theirs, I prefer spinning "More Gold"!

              True. Same goes for Madonna's The Immaculate Collection.

                          Blondie - Parallel Lines (1978)



                          My rate : A (Wonderful)

                          Top 5 songs :
                          1. Sunday Girl
                          2. 11:59
                          3. Heart Of Glass
                          4. Picture This
                          5. Hanging On The Telephone

                          # 1 singles : Picture This, Hanging On The Telephone, Heart Of Glass, Sunday Girl

                          It's very rare time, when I agree with music critics, but "Parallel Lines" is deserved all-time classic LP.
                          From four # 1 singles "Sunday Girl" became my favourite and spent 9 weeks on the top of retrospective chart.
                          Sadly brilliant "11.59" wasn't released as single.

                                  5. Hypocrates

                                  Very melancholic and depressive album, which hard to listen from start to finish.
                                  I even thought about "C" rank.

                                    I still enjoy "Primadonna" for its ridiculous, but very up-to-date appeal

                                                  • Thrilled that Lover earned an A It feels like a really fitting grade, since I'm definitely enjoying the album too, but I think she has other LPs more deserving of an S. I love that you ranked "ME!" so high, since I've seen it receive way too much hate just for being a bubbly, uplifting pop song. The only track in your Top 5 that hasn't resonated with me is "Miss Americana...", but it might be a grower.

                                                  • Only one single made your Lover Top 5, while your One Of The Boys Top 5 is almost all singles! Poor under-appreciated "Thinking Of You" is the only one not to make the cut That album did have some fantastic, memorable singles (especially "Hot N Cold"), but there's still some gems hidden among the album tracks too (especially "Mannequin"). There was more of a pop/rock edge to a lot of her material this era (kind of like P!nk or Avril), but she pretty much left that sound/style behind starting with Teenage Dream.

                                                    "One of the Boys" is fantastic album. Katy had so much potential and sadly she wasted her music career.

                                                    Possibly you will like Sunny - Carrie from Norwegian ESC pre-selection - 2009, which sounds like missed track from "One Of The Boys".
