The Perfect Five posts five songs per week(ish): a recent hit, a cover, a classic, a remix, and a wildcard. "A music blog for people who don't have time for music blogs."

per month(ish). I don't have that much time, but I have some time.

It looks like that from the Monthly archive links, but click "Previous Week." The template only shows you one week at a time, even if you click on a whole month.

Indeed. Because the navigation kind of sucks, here are links to all 11 installments:

I like the idea. One note is that it mentions Them's "Here Comes the Night," which was released in 1965. They transpose the digits to 1956. Van Morrison was 11 years old in 1956.

Just looking at the front page made me add it to my RSS feed.

Wow, the song currently selected in the "covered" slot is gorgeous, and apparently unavailable on iTunes.

Beck has a record club? where a shit-ton of artists cover classic albums in a day? And they remade Kick? And Velvet Undergound & Nico?

Information Overload, indeed. While I struggle to keep up with hundreds of new items in my daily RSS feeds, entire crazy projects swell up in corners I'd never bother to check.

Oh, neat blog too. I still don't think I have time for a music blog, but it's definitely one of the best takes I've seen on the idea.

LOL, true that.
