Popspotting #60: Foo Fighters & Lady Gaga (June 1, 2011)
For our first music show (apparently confirming Wednesday as being our wildcard slot), we get Jen’s take on two big recent releases: “Wasting Light,” the seventh studio album from the Foo Fighters, and “Born This Way,” the omnipresent second album from Lady Gaga. Though new, both conjure up a healthy serving of nostalgia, the Foo Fighters for their rough-and-tumble early years, and Lady Gaga for the ’80s (and for Madonna). لعبة البلوت في السعودية
Jen also shares two singles that have been getting heavy play on her iPod, both tied to the similarly omnipresent phenomenon known as “Glee. فريق بايرن ”
Next week brings back the book talk, which generated an impressive proportion of the feedback we’ve received here on Popspotting. But if you’d like to hear us talk about something you like hearing, please make your music recommendations today! انتروباي

I’m really confused by Jen’s review of the Foo Fighters album. Did she actually buy it or download some bootleg copy? She claims to be a fan but refers to songs from past albums not contained on Wasting Light (Cold Day in the Sun, Weenie Beenie)
I’d love to hear what Jen thinks of “All You Need Is Now”, the new Duran Duran album (probably the band’s best since Medazzaland.)
“The Dog Days are Over”! Jen, you rock! the Foo Fighters album is pretty good, too.Â
Oh no! I meant “A Matter Of Time” not “Cold Day in the Sun.” And “Weenie Beenie” is a total goof. Got dropped into the playlist I guess. Sorry!
Love love love the song Edge of Glory by Gaga.Â
Edge of Glory is actually based off of Bruce Springsteen I think.Â
Great show. The current and not so current albums getting heavy “airplay” on my iTunes/iPods are “Cannibal Courtship” by Dengue Fever (best tracks, “Uku” “Cement Slippers” “Thank You Goodbye” title track), Fitz & the Tantrums’ “Pickin Up the Pieces”, and Caro Emerald “Deleted Scenes from the Cutting Room Floor” (best tracks “Back it Up,” “The Other Woman,” “A Night Like This” and “Stuck” )… favorite “current” singles “Hello” by Martin Solveig & Dragonettes and “Tonight’s the Kind of Night” by Noah & the Whale.

Edge of Glory has Springsteen’s saxophone player Clarence Clemons featured on it.Â So does the song Hair on the album.
