Mine too. Almost tied with the Cactus Blossoms.

I don't even remember the Lissie song. Blank as a fart!

I had to vote Lissie because the poll was for worst performance. Her lip-syncing and on stage acting was terrible. If the poll was for worst song I would have probably went for the second Au Revoir Simone song or the horribly auto-tuned Rebekah Del Rio song.

Also - why was Hudson Mohawke not listed in the poll?

I think there is place for both here?

Anyway here's the thread you might be looking for, perhaps. It's probably more positive than negative. I have to say that while I don't spend much time at all thinking about The Return or craving to come back to it, I do like to listen to those Roadhouse performances every now and again. I liked them.

I liked all the songs but I have to go with Lissie because she had the weakest lip-sync.

I liked all the songs and don't really mind that a lot of them didn't fit the mood of the original TP. New show, new vibe.

I actually really, really loved how much of an absurd and ironic contrast the Lizzie song was to the rest of the episode, I actually genuinely enjoyed it even though I'm not a fan of that type of music :shock: :D


To put it bluntly, that music made me hysterical that week after that episode, it was actually a great pick and probably the most memorable besides Julee Cruise for this reason.

As far as song quality goes, I'd probably vote the Nine Inch Nails song as the best. Otherwise none of the other songs stuck with me that much (and people don't include Penderecki's amazing "Threnody For The Victims Of Hiroshima" for some reason :( )

I voted Sharon Van Etten. The song was the least appropriate for the show. As far as the worst physical performance, that would be Del Rio. I was annoyed by her facial expressions throughout. The song was way overwrought, but it may be the one that pertains to this show the most. It talks about the idealized past being full of stars, but today it's "no stars". So too is the original show idealized, but this current one, perhaps intentionally, was completely absurd nothingness, no stars present.
