BIBJ Playlist of the 2000s entry #28: You Got Yr. Cherry Bomb by Spoon

Can you go wrong with any song from Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga?  The answer is no.  Unless you go with "Eddie's Ragga."  In that particular case, you indeed can go wrong.  More like Eddie's borophyll.  Am I right everyone? 

Regardless, if Phil Spector was still spending his time focusing on innovative production techniques, rather than shooting b-movie actresses, this might be the result.  It's a fact:  Chimes have never detracted from a song's quality.

Earlier this week, Metacritic declared Spoon to be the artist of the decade, based on the average review scores from the four albums they released in the 2000s.  I can't argue too much with that pick, but the logarithm that they developed to reach the conclusion seemed too nerdy for me to even bother deciphering.
