    Foreign Films

    I wouldn't be surprised if it was subtitled in London as well.

    Tell someone about something

    After I read the "rainbow songs" thread, I'd recommend Rainbow's "On Stage" live album [1977] to anyone who hasn't heard that there was a band called Rainbow.

    Songs About Rainbows....

    Rainbow were one of the biggest bands among rock fans in Bulgaria. Actually, I was kind of surprised when I read your post and thought it was a joke - "there was a band called Rainbow"??? The band was created by Ritchie Blackmore after he left Deep Purple in 1974, before or during the recordings of the "Burn" album. He obviously wasn't happy with his role in the band (coincidently or not, "Burn" is considered the last really successful Deep Purple recording). So Ritchie Blackmore created his own band, and struck gold by getting Ronnie James Dio sing lead vocals (Dio was recommended to him by a friend who said something along the lines of "I have a singer for you who can stop a train with his voice"). They mostly sucked after 1978 (about the time when Dio left; he joined Black Sabbath in 1979 and recorded several albums with them before moving on to a solo career) and Ritchie Blackmore constantly changed the line up, but their early albums were great. They have some famous live recordings, especially "On Stage" [1977] - I'd highlight their rendition of Deep Purple's "Mistreated", with very powerful vocals by Dio. They also had a huge hit in 1980 with "I Surrender", which still gets a lot of radio play on retro radios (at least around here).

    Songs with a specific theme, needed.

    For #1, I would include CCR's "Run Through The Jungle" (if you've read "The Talisman", you'll know why). Also Rainbow - Run With The Wolf.

    Blues/jazz: 2 questions

    1) Thanks, it's Judy Garland 2) That's the problem with Tiger Rag, I have an original CD but there are no musician credits.
  9. 1) "I've got the right to sing the blues" - white female singer - who is she? I heard this one on the radio in the car last night and would like to find the song. I would call the radio if I could find on which station it was. :: 2) This one's been bothering me for quite some time and I can't seem to find the answer anywhere. Who plays the piano part in Louis Armstrong's "Butter & Egg Man" on the "Tiger Rag" album? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    Movies: Best Year

    Inspired from the Classic Rock thread. What was the best year for movies that you can remember (recent history)? I vote for 1994: Pulp Fiction! Forrest Gump! The Shawshank Redemption!! Leon (The Professional)!!

    Whats goin on this season?!

    But movies tend to get worse all the time, yes - the last really great year was 1994.

    Fortunately, in Bulgaria they never dub movies, they always put subtitles. They actually only dub soap operas here, I guess because the target audience has trouble reading.
