  1. Man...that takes me back...that HAS to be in my all-time top ten coolest songs ever! (which seems to change from day to day, nowadays)
  2. Picture yourself in a boat on a river, with tangerine trees and marmalade skies well? Lucy in the Sky....with tangerines?
  3. Someone mentioned Stewart Copeland agreed...one of the very best "There's a Hole In My Life" (from their first album....listen closely...... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCcWl6T_Nds&feature=PlayList&p=7BE3608B3A7213F8&playnext=1&playnext_from=PL&index=14
  4. You don't need a weather man to know which way the wind blows... I'm the one who has to die when it's time for me to die...so let me live my life...the way I want to... I hear that train 'a comin', it's rollin round the bend.. Have you seen junior's grades? Lines form on my face and hands, lindes form on the left and right Haw Haw Haw Haw ['Boogie Chillen' by John Lee Hooker] Let me take you down Good night sweetheart, well it's time to go
  5. "Happy Jack" by 'The Who' Hand down Keef really had the chance to show what it means to be a LEAD DRUMMER Also, the dynamics make it a great club song, if you have the drummer to pull it off, for those seeking fresh songs for a stale set list
  6. Hows about, 'Add It Up'? While I don't think it has "THE 'P' WORD", it's certainly there (or not there) by the inferrence in the line, "Why can't I get just one...." ....well....you know....dontcha? sorry in advance, barry berry (one of chuck's children)
  7. It was released the same year that 'Doctor Hook and the Medicine Show" sold out, shaved the raggedy beards and put on polyester disco garb, and make more money with that pale song than any of their earlier freak flag music combined, with the exception of 'Cover of the Rolling Stone'...'Freaker's Ball' never really hit top 40. That's cool, though I'd like a nice nest egg like the one 'Only Sixteen' surely netted before I retire, too!
  8. I'm still sticking with Steve Marriot...to me, he always sounds like he really means it He really defined a certain drawl/growl check out his one...from 1972, here's Steve with Humble pie (their first album with Peter Frampton in the line up) 'Thirty Days In the Hole'- by Humble pie that's one sweet snarl, babies! Think Bon Scott might have heard this one? listen again and see, especially during the verses yeah, I know there are others...I just never felt the man got his proper respect (it was prolly hard to live down "Itchygoo Park""....hehehe
  9. The Beatles Today Guitars- Paul Bass-Paul All keyboards-Paul Brass instruments-Paul All Vocals-Paul Drums-Ringo Drum correction overdubs-Paul or.....maybe they can record,"Look What They've Done to My Song,Ma" Just buy those old albums and listen to the music it....listen to it hard...listen to it easy In them, you may find life... It's really too bad they never could best , maybe, to just let it be "the dream is over" - John Lennon
  10. Films? A fictional charecter has films?
  11. The entire Led Zeppelin III album...such eclectic songs and music! I like 'Hats Off To Roy Harper' offa that one, too
  12. heck....try finding one that's not lifted Here's what Ritchie Blackmore (Deep Purple) had to say on the subject of becoming a good guitarist... GP-What advice would you give to a person who wanted to become a good rock guitarist? RB-I'd have a tendency to say "Get a good guitar, and get a good tutor book." Really the only way you can get good - unless you're a genius - is to copy. You'll never come up with your own gear, untill you've copied. That's the best thing. Just steal. here's a link to the intire Guitar Player interview http://www.thehighwaystar.com/interviews/blackmore/rb1973xxxx.html
  13. I don't feel that The Ramones get the punk respect they deserve Go back to interviews with all of the British punk band, and you'll hear how greatly they were influenced by The Ramones first British tour. They lit that dry, dry fuse
  14. On 'A Farewell to Kings' (i think), Rush had a song called Cyngus X1, the theme of the song was continued with side one of their next album ('Hemisphres'). Great stuff...good 'ol headphone music knowutimean?
  15. Find Bob Dylans' 'Talkin' World War III Blues' "...lit a cigarette on a parkin' meter and walked on down the road...it was a normal day"
  16. All By Myself, by Eric Carmen ...and then, depression set in Time for some Ramones!
  17. George Martin's score for The Beatles, 'A Day in the Life" His orchesteral arrangement is the very thing that makes that song so majestic (that upward building urgency of instruments that seems ((still)) to grow beyond capacity) Without Martin's help in composition, I'm afraid that The Beatles would have continued to sound like the British Every Brothers...that two part harmony pop diddy blueprint the boy's from Liverpool did so very well "Woke up...fell out of bed...dragged a comb across my head"
  18. "Coinkydink much?" I reckon so, Peaches I am a walking coinkydink Also, thanks ever so much for the proper spelling of the word "coinkydink"...the "i" looks much better than "ee"...call Websters...take your due credit for that one ...yeah....gotta love the cheese...in moderation (of course)...you know what happens with too much cheese...as below, so above
  19. For ANY songs concerning eating, or any type of food, you gotta check out Weird Al. Once again, he comes through Here's a song celebrating the virtues of the beloved Oreo... Behold, Weird Al's 'The Whie Stuff' Yes, the song sucks, but it is about cookies ...much more palatable than 'My Balogna' pass the milk ,please
  20. Depends on my mood. The early stuff is great pop diddies...usefull for nostalgia and era moods But for great music, 1967-1970 wins, hands down "genius is pain" - John Lennon
  21. Journey's video for 'Seperate Ways' leaps to mind. Every cliche' in the cheesey video book...macho posing in eye shadow...playing 'air' instruments...lotsa fist shaking...and a pretty girl, looking a little over-dressed for an industrial shipping dock...cheese, cheese, cheese It's (almost) a shame, cuz the song really ain't bad check it out, if'n you don't remember it any thoughts? am I over reacting? cheddar is better
  22. money and bought/paid for influence principalities and powers, spiritual wickedness in high places there are no rules but that of the highest bidder nothing is as it seems... let me take you down cuz i'm going to...irony fields
