  1. [quoteMy suggestions: "Making Movies" -Dire Straits "Blonde on Blonde" -Bob Dylan. Any Beatles album. "Goat´s Head Soup"- Rolling Stones "Exile on Main Street"- Rolling Stones. "Bridge over Trouble Water"- Simon & Garfunkel "DSOTM" - Pink Floyd.
  2. Thanks for the heads-up Edl. I apparently got bum info from a guy I met in the service who claimed to have been in boot camp with the drummer from Marmalade. But, now that you mention it, I HAD heard they were a UK band, but it did not register. They just never had another hit in the U.S.
  3. Don McLean had a hit with a remake of Orbison's "Crying" and I believe he also wrote and recorded "Vincent" (Van Gogh) which was a minor hit.
  4. I feel the sentiment of lost culture has been with every generation since time began. I remember my father telling me the Beatles were just a bunch of noise. HIS father probably said the same about Woody Guthrie. I am sure more than a few parents have reviled U2. The messages we need to assimilate in order to fulfill our role will always be available to us. Sometimes they are whispers and other times, shouts.
  5. Madman Across The Water (Elton John) Bridge Over Troubled Waters (Simon and Garfunkle) sound track to Easy Rider
  6. Crosby, Stills and Nash (first album) The Best of Roy Orbison
  7. Suicide is neither romantic nor bold; a solution nor resolution. It is he ultimate form of selfishness. It says, "Here, you that I leave behind, clean up all my messes for me; the old ones, the immediate ones and a sardonic good luck on the problems that won't be manifesting themselves for a good long while yet. I can't, so you handle them in my place."
  8. Add their separate solo discographies and the qualitative total isn't even close to their combined force and talent as symbiotic songwriters. Each influenced the other by what was inside their personalities and though polar opposite in many areas, their match filled the gaps of the other; musically, lyrically, socially and ethically. Though usually writing separately even while Beatles, they both editorialized one another's work and lent additional dynamics to almost every song attributed to that team. Truly the sum was greater than its parts.
  9. Tommy James and the Shondells could not be included in any one hit discussion. Their discography is extensive.
  10. Concern is a right A new day is a gift Joy, a decision Commitment, an opportunity Peace of mind is a result
  11. My nominee would have to be "Reflections of my Life" by the group Marmalade back in 1968. The band broke up because 3 of the 5 guys were drafted. They wrote this song and hit nationally with it, signed a record deal, produced one album (of mostly their material), by the same name as their hit song. Then Vietnam called and they never existed again. Just a great song lyrically and musically. Best line: "The world is a bad place, a bad place, a very bad place to live; but I don't want to die."
