  1. his latest, poodle hat, is all that. genius in france is particularly formidable.
  2. Yeah, baby! I Want To Take You Higher is like orgiastic,man!
  3. Lord, of course, Dream On by Aerosmith. Wait, what about Hell Is For Children by Pat Benatar. Yes!
  4. I'm one of those freaks that actually enjoys revolution #9--truly a creepy ride forwards and backwards. And I like the ending, with the crowd chants at the football game, and the last line, "take this brother may it serve you well." As is said, I'm a freak.
  5. Maladroit is one of best album names of all time--as well one of the best albums. Dope Nose is so good, my 88-year-old father grooved to it. (I played it at my nephew's birthday party.) I'm sorry but Weezer rocks!!!
  6. All right, another outro person! (I've always thought that songs that just kind of faded out were really boring.) Okay, Beatles: The End (how can all of you savvy folk forget the most famous outro of all time, being the denouement to the last song on the last Beatles record ever recorded!) Helter Skelter (I got blisters on my fingers!) I'm So Tired (get a disc and play the ending backwards) Strawberry Fields Forever (I'm Very Bored??) Revolution #9 (take this brother may it serve you well) (Okay not a song per se, but I've always found it interesting that after all the acid trip and revolution and scenes from a nightmare stuff, it all ends up with chants from a football game. It somehow seems appropriate.) (Already mentioned and worthy-While My Guitar Gently Weeps; A Day In The Life; I Am The Walrus; I Want You (She's So Heavy)) Okay, rock anthems: (The best in this category by far, already mentioned-Stairway To Heaven.) Free Bird-Lynyrd Skynyrd Layla-Derek and The Dominoes In A-Gadda-Da-Vida-Iron Butterfly We Are The Champions-Queen Yes, I agree, Baba O'Riley has by far the greatest outro of all time, bar none, but how about these (eclecticly speaking): Baker Street-Gerry Rafferty Riders On The Storm-Doors Working Class Hero-John Lennon Black Magic Woman (long version)-Santana Jump Into The Fire (long version)-Nilsson Living For The City-Stevie Wonder All My Life-Foo Fighters Rock Lobster-B-52's Aqualung-Jethro Tull Taxi-Harry Chapin Flashlight-Parliament When Doves Cry (long version)-Prince Smells Like Teen Spirit-Nirvana (or even Smells Like Nirvana by Weird Al) Rock On. :guitar:
  7. Don't think Sympathy For The Devil was based on a particular incident. Maybe you're thinking of Gimme Shelter, which was about the concert at Altamont Speedway in the late 60's.
  8. mustapha by queen--most of it is arabic
  9. Miamisammy, we must be on some kind of weird wavelength thing here. I was just going to recommend I Want It All. (I swear!) Mercury's vocals soar, Brian May's guitar sears, and their trademark grandiosity rules. Most excellent. But how come no one has mentioned the all-time greatest Queen album--at least in my estimation--Jazz? Though it was not a huge commercial success, it definitely contains some of their strongest songs. Hell, you have to hear Dead On Time, Fat Bottomed Girls, Bicycle Race (the latter two were released together as the single), Mustapha (in which most of the lyrics are in Arabic), their "disco" song, Fun It, and the impressive ballads Jealousy and Leaving Home Ain't Easy. If you want to be a true Queenie, you gotta hear Jazz.
  10. Am making a CD (though it will probably end up as two) for my nephew consisting of soul music that's not Motown or rap. Since I grew up in the 70's I have that era pretty well covered--Tower of Power, Al Green, Sly, Stevie Wonder, Blood Sweat & Tears, not to mention James Brown (Mother Popcorn--the bomb)and Aretha (Daydreaming). I'll include Prince (I think Sexy MF), Flashlight by Parliament (one of the great bass songs of all time), as well as Laid Back Girl by Maze, and probably something by Cameo (and oh yeah Killer by Seal--one of the most intense songs I ever heard). Okay, now that you see the criteria, I could use some suggestions for other jams, especially 80's and beyond. Please no Babyface-type stuff, no gangster rap, though stuff along the lines of Arrested Development or De La Soul--a very underrated group--would be OK. Also, songs from beat-rock bands like the Chili Peppers and Soul Coughing are good. Thanks for the help, compadres. (And hey, by the way, this site rocks.)
  11. Hurricane-Dylan Ballad Of John And Yoko-Beatles Woodstock-various Abraham, Martin and John-Dion Right Here, Right Now-Jesus Jones I Don't Like Mondays-Boomtown Rats What's The Frequency, Kenneth-REM Let's Roll-Neil Young My City Of Dreams-Springsteen
  12. Some time ago I saw a post asking about songs in which the title was the last line and was only heard that one time. The person said there were three songs in which this occurred (which can't be true), mentioning Virginia Plain by Roxy Music and another that I can't remember. A followup post offered The Famous Final Scene by Bob Seger as an example, and I subsequently thought of Let's Go To Bed by The Cure as another one. Who can think of more? OK, then, after that I heard a Weezer song called El Scorcho. In this song the title is the first phrase heard and is not repeated again. I cannot think of another song like this. For a million dollars(right),can you? One more variation, how many songs can you name that have no chorus--think Drive by REM and Photograph by Ringo Starr (for those over 40!) Others? Rico
