  1. It's not a solo, really, but the banjo at the end of the Eagle's version of Take It Easy is pretty cool.
  2. That's ok. I'm a dork , too. Heck, I listen to the Czech news on the radio on my way to work. Don't ask me why. I guess I want to be ready if someone walks up and asks me what's going on in Prague this morning.
  3. Clarence Clemon's sax solo towards the end of Jungle Land is beautiful.
  4. If that happens, it will be the first Bond movie I've seen since Roger Moore left.
  5. The Pointer Sisters did 'Fire', which Springsteen wrote. He released it later, I believe on his live album. I don't know how big a hit it was for the P.S., but I recall hearing it on the radio a lot. I couldn't say where it charted without looking it up.
  6. rift? I'm sorry. I couldn't hold it in any longer.
  7. The most obvious, Blinded By The Light.
  8. Now THAT was a review. and , uh..(??), there's no need for that.
  9. Well? Are you going to tell us about it? The venue? Who was great? Who was ok? Who stunk up the place? We need information, bud. And welcome to Songfacts. I'm jr. This here's my brother Darryl, and this is my other brother Darryl.
  10. I've no clue what marching powders or a tuppence are.
  11. WTG!!! LOL. FWIW, RCgirl, AFAIC, NTYMI, people are BBD if they use too many abbreviations, TTBOMK, TCGOFE. IMO. :happybanana: :happybanana:
  12. I'm going to register just so I can cut and paste this. I crack myself up sometimes.
  13. You should make it a point to see it. For it's day, it covers a lot of very taboo subjects for the times. Marijuana, homosexuality, group sex (sorry folks, there's no delicate way to say that), alcoholism. Plus, Ava Gardner is gorgeous.

    List #9

    Someone recommended this album a few lists ago. I seconded it then, and I'll second it now. It is one of those classics that you know every song, whether you're a fan or not. Owned it on 8-track, album, tape a few times, and finally, cd. Like I said before, the emotions were running high between the members of the band during the recording of this. And it comes through in the songs.
  15. I suppose I should add a song fact with the image. The only one I know, and I heard this from a DJ on a Philly radio station, is that this instrumental to so long to record, and went through so many different phases, takes and retakes, that somewhere during the process, someone in the studio said they had created a monster. From then on, they referred to it as Frankenstein. How factual that is, I couldn't say. I am just parroting what I heard a DJ say. I will say this about the song: it's the earliest recording I know of with 'hammer ons' fret work. For those of you not familiar with it, it is the sound Eddie Van Halen gets during 'Eruption'. A lot of people think he was the first, but Frankenstein has it.
  16. RJS, you're going to be hard pressed to top that thread title. It's got everything: Humor, the facts, wordplay, and a frighteningly nauseating mental image.
  17. I'm sorry, but "It's the Stones", just doesn't justify it.
  18. I hit paydirt with those compilations cds once at FYE. It was in the bargain bin, 10 bucks for a 5 cd set of '60's Sounds'. I didn't even look at what was on the cds. 5 for 10 bucks, I was buying it.
  19. I don't understand how they can charge 160.00 for a seat, when Fogherty and Mellencamp are charging 40.00 for the same seat.
  20. Man, I don't watch any tv at all, it seems.
  21. I have all the answers for May. :: And I know they're right. ::
  22. Took you long enough. Geez. ::
  23. Now that's the original Hollaback Girl.
  24. I liked the Archies. Sugar Sugar. That's one of my earliest recollections of music. The Monkees had some great music, I don't care what anyone says.
