  1. Fair enough. I have only been here one day. I have no right to judge anybody on this board.

    I have been reading many rock/metal message boards lately and this the first music site that I have actually signed in and posted. This is an ALL MUSIC site also so I can also see how the views on different genres might be more opened minded.

    My earlier post was a reply to 99% of the Evanescence post I have read in the last couple months on other sites. It was not directed at this board, and you are right I should have started my own thread. Sorry about that.

    And now to answer and respond to your post....

    Hmmm I was going to ask where anyone compared Amy Lee to the likes of Britney Spears
    I read it a million times on the metal/rock boards and it pissed me off. I apologize for taking it out on this board.

    I'm gonna have to disagree with that, there are plenty of very talented artists that were given the chance and didn't sell out, The Pixies, Sonic Youth...etc, etc.

    I was also wrong with this statement as I did use the word ANY so I am going to re-phrase that... I beleive that most all bands/artist will sell out to SOME EXTENT if given the chance. I know I would $$$.

    Sonic Youth Sells Out: Read All About It!

    I cant wait to get my new Sonic Youth Coffee Mug. As seen on TV! ::

    I'm not sure what the point of the rest of your post is, since you call us hypocrites for criticizing artists, the go on to do it yourself.

    I did write this for criticizing artist. I wrote it for the REASONS the artist are be criticized. I believe that most of the people on the message boards I was reading like what they like because it is "COOL" among their peers to do so(IMAGE), which is one of the main problems many of them have with corporate music. Much of corporate music does suck. Just dont say it because you think Sally, Joe, Bob and Bill might also. I have a hard time beleiving that many people can feel Lacuna Coil, Nightwish, The Gathering ect. and then be totally disgusted by Evanescence. My ears must be completly f#@%d up.

    Again I apologize for directing my comments at this board. Anyway that What Song are Listing To is a very cool thread and has helped add many many :rockon: songs to my library.

    :bow: MP3's :bow:


  2. Also...

    Reba Mcentire -

    He was on his home from candletop

    Been two weeks gone and he thought he'd stop

    At web's and have him a drink before he went home to her

    Andy Wo-Lo said hello

    He said " Hi, what's doin'"

    Wo said " Sit down I got some bad news, it's gonna hurt"

    He said "I'm your best friend and you know that's right

    But your young bride aint't home tonight

    Since you been gone she's been seeing that Amos boy Seth"

    Now he got mad and he saw red

    Andy said "boy don't lose your head

    Cause to tell you the truth I've been with her myself"

    Chorus:

    That's the night that the lights went out in Georgia

    That's the night that they hung an innocent man

    Well don't trust your soul to no back woods southern lawyer

    Cause the judge in the town's got bloodstains on his hands

    Well, Andy got scared and left the bar

    Walking on home cause he didn't live far you see

    Andy didn't have many friends, and he just lost him one

    Brother thought his wife must've left town

    So he went home and finally found the only thing

    Daddy had left him and that was a gun

    He went off to Andy's house

    Slipping through the back woods quiet as a mouse

    Came upon some tracks too small for Andy to make

    He looked through the screen at the back porch door

    And he saw Andy lyin on the floor

    In a puddle of blood and he started to shake

    The Georgia patrol was making their rounds

    So he fired a shot just to flag 'em down

    A big bellied sheriff grabbed his gun and said

    "Why'd you do it"

    The judge said guilty in a make believe trial

    Slapped the sheriff on the back with a smile and said

    "Supper waiting at home and I got to get to it"

    Chorus:

    That's the night that the lights went out in Georgia

    That's the night that they hung an innocent man

    Well don't trust your soul to no back woods southern lawyer

    Cause the judge in the town's got blood stains on his hands

    Well they hung my brother before I could say

    The tracks he saw while on his way

    To Andy's house and back that night were mine

    And his cheatin wife had never left town

    And that's one body that'll never be found

    You see little sister don't miss when she aims her gun

    Chorus:

    That's the night that the lights went out in Georgia

    That's the night that they hung an innocent man

    Don't trust your soul with no back woods southern lawyer

    Cause the judge in the town's got blood stains on his hands

    That's the night that the lights went out in Georgia

    That's the night that they hung an innocent man

    Don't trust your soul with no back woods southern lawyer

    Cause the judge in the town's got blood stains on his hands

  3. Great Story Song...

    Fancy - Reba Mcentire

    I remember it all very well lookin' back

    It was the summer I turned eighteen

    We lived in a one room, rundown shack

    On the outskirts of New Orleans

    We didn't have money for food or rent

    To say the least we were hard pressed

    Then Mama spent every last penny we had

    To buy me a dancin' dress

    Mama washed and combed and curled my hair

    And she painted my eyes and lips

    then I stepped into a satin dancin' dress that had a split from the side clean

    up to my hip

    It was red velvet trimmin' and it fit me good

    Standin' back from the lookin' glass

    There stood a woman where a half grown kid had stood

    She said here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down

    Here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down

    Mama dabbed a little bit of perfume on my neck

    And she kissed my cheek

    Then I saw the tears wellin' up in her troubled eyes

    as she started to speak

    She looked at our pitiful shack

    And then she looked at me and took a ragged breath

    She said your Pa's run'd off and I'm real sick

    And the baby's gonna starve to death

    She handed me a heart shaped locket that said

    "To thine own self be true"

    And I shivered as I watched a roach crawl across

    The tow of my high heel shoe

    It sounded like somebody else that was talkin'

    Askin' Mama what do I do

    She said just be nice to the gentlemen Fancy

    And they'll be nice to you

    She said here's your chance Fancy don't let me down

    Here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down

    Lord forgive me for what I do, but if you want out

    Well it's up to you

    Now don't let me down your Mama's gonna move you uptown.

    Well, that was the last time I saw my Ma

    The night I left that rickety shack

    The welfare people came and took the baby

    Mama died and I ain't been back

    But the wheels of fate had started to turn

    And for me there was no way out

    And it wasn't long 'til I knew exactly

    What my Mama'd been talkin' about

    I knew what I had to do and I made myself this solemn vow

    That I's gonna be a lady someday

    Though I didn't know when or how

    I couldn't see spending the rest of my life

    With my head hung down in shame you know

    I might have been born just plain white trash

    But Fancy was my name

    Here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down

    Here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down

    It wasn't long after a benevolent man

    Took me in off the street

    And one week later I was pourin' his tea

    In a five room hotel suite

    I charmed a king, a congressman

    And an occasional aristocrat

    Then I got me a Georgia mansion

    In an elegant New York townhouse flat

    And I ain't done bad

    Now in this world there's a lot of self-righteous hippocrits

    That would call me bad

    And criticize Mama for turning me out

    No matter how little we had

    But though I ain't had to worry 'bout nothin'

    For nigh on fifteen years

    I can still hear the desperation in my poor

    Mama's voice ringin' in my ears

    She said, here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down

    Here's your one chance Fancy don't let me down

    Lord, forgive me for what I do

    But if you want out well it's up to you

    Now don't let me down

    Your Mama's gonna move you uptown

    Oh, and I guess she did

    See its O.K. to be a prostitute ::


  4. This is going to be a long post because I have a little to say about the prostitution of artist.

    I have been reading alot of boards lately and it upsets me how hypocritical people are in that they shun very talented artist strictly on the bases of their image and corprate status. People, It's OK to like sellouts if they are good.

    People automatically think that just because an artist is a huge corporate sellout that they have no musical or vocal talent. 99% of the time it seems to work out that way but you can't knock Christina Aguilera's vocals. Christina didn't need T&A to make it. She could have been an ugly heffer and made it pretty far on her vocals alone. I would much rather listen to Christina than Britney, Jessica, Ashely or any of the other Pop diva sellouts (Except Amy Lee).

    Amy Lee is a big time sellout. No artist can come out of thin air and sell 6 million records without some MAJOR corporate promotion. But Amy Lee does happen to be my favorite artist because has AWESOME VOCALS (even live), writes her own lyrics which is unbeleivable stuff given the age that she and her band partner Ben Moody were at the time of writing most of the lyrics. She also is a very solid pianist and is very involved in determining how her bands music sounds. She and her band also have a Non-corporate driven record (Origin; 2000) that is one of the best I have ever heard. It really pisses me off when people compare her to the Britneys, Ashleys, and Jessicas of pop music.

    The former artist mentioned are basically only vocals and image and Ashely Vinilli... I mean Ashley Simpson is pure image.

    Given that... Any artist will sell out if given the chance, even that super talented artist you love that nobody else knows about right now. If you gaurentee them 6 million records they are going sign the dotted line and bend over for the american masses to stick it in. (I know I would)

    Keep an opened mind people. Ashley Simpson does F#@%n suck though and so does Britney. Christina has some pipes though, you gotta give her that. red2177 has spoken :bow:
