  1. Well Beatles One is 81 minutes long.
  2. I find a lot of blues song have stories. So most of that.
  3. The Wall could fit on one album its 81 minutes and they managed to fit Beatles 1 on one cd and thats about the same length. But no, they had to make it 40 bucks.
  4. Me papa was born in 1950 but he certainly was not a hippie. Now a friend of dads, his age wasnt a hippie either, but he was definetly hip. He showed me a poster he had of himself on a motorbike, a real lowriding one, long hair the lennon shades and everything. He said he was going to even go to woodstock on his bike if there hadnt been a big storm. He teaches me the guitar I know and let me borrow some bios and stuff on the stones and beatles and everything. Just thought Id share.
  5. I am haveing a VERY difficult time defining Grunge. I realize tht i came ut of mainly Seattle in the late eighties and people list Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden as Grunge bands. But what is it? Now, I got a Pixies album for Christmas and I thought that was as Grungy as it got, but they werent on sny Grunger band lists I have seen... Just discuss it and maybe try to define it and give me some good Grunge Bands, because I like all of it ive heard so far.
  6. Yeah, I dont really like Roger and Dave solo, I dont ZEE, wasnt that another Rick Wrightband?

  9. This is probably my favorite song to date. Let's see what you guys think. ?Daniel Gillis Sit Back And Relax You Fake Fools Laugh And Point At How Dumb I Look At Least I Had The Balls To Do What I Felt. Deepen Your Voice Flex Your Abs Say What Makes You Cool Makes No Difference To Me. Away From People You're Different Away From People You're You In Public You'll Fall For Another Fake Soul Like An Unlucky Jester Who Will Lose His Mind Lost In A World Of Talk Chit-Chattering About Nothing Away You wouldn't Care Here You Fix Your Bangs. You're The One Who Suffers It's Hard To be Someone You're Not But Your Alter Ego Is More Popular So Thats How It Has To Be I Know Who You Really Are I Knowe Your So Called Secrets I Really Don't Give A Damn But I Know You Think Everyone Cares All You Are Is A Jester Putting On The Show Of A Lifetime The Show That Lasts A Lifetime Self Concious Jesters Always Lose Their Minds
  10. Heres Another song I wrote because some of my friends are obsessed with metal and I cant stand listening to it for more than 2-3 songs at once. ?Daniel Gillis Metalheads Incessant Noise Power Chords They Insist On Having It that Way Always the Same Deep And Heavy Fast PAced And Ugly That Way Is Their #1 Rule That Mellow Is Bad? Heavy and Hard Depressed And Suicidal Screeches And Gunts Hard On The Head How Angry Are People Today? Metalheads EVERYWHERE! Not very Poetic perhaps, but it will make a good ol' controversial song
  11. Heres are two poems, one with potential for a song maybe., Id make a thread for each, but ones just a Haiku. Both ? Daniel Gillis My Love Your Eyes Shine Like Gold My Mind Never Leaves Those Eyes I Wish I Could Tell You And I From The Fiery Roots Of Hell To The Green Grass Of Valleys From The Black Miles Of Space To The Beautiful Blue Sky Everything Will Go...Away Forever Except You And I From Black Widow Spiders To Snakes And Worms From The Deer and The Geese To The Fish In The See Everything Will Go.....Away Somewhere Except You And I From A Cold Winters Day To A Midsummers Night From A Rainy weekend To A Sunny Sky Everything Will Go And Never Return Except You And I

I realize we're a bit behind on this but i saw a program on it last night on CBC and it was touching. Joni Mitchell was an amazing poet, one of the best of our time. I'm just wondering what people think of her here. I also heard this song on the radio over the holidays, and it was one of the deepest songs I'd ever heard. River It?s coming on christmas They?re cutting down trees They?re putting up reindeer And singing songs of joy and peace Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on But it don?t snow here It stays pretty green I?m going to make a lot of money Then I?m going to quit this crazy scene I wish I had a river I could skate away on I wish I had a river so long I would teach my feet to fly Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on I made my baby cry He tried hard to help me You know, he put me at ease And he loved me so naughty Made me weak in the knees Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on I?m so hard to handle I?m selfish and I?m sad Now I?ve gone and lost the best baby That I ever had Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on I wish I had a river so long I would teach my feet to fly Oh I wish I had a river I made my baby say goodbye It?s coming on christmas They?re cutting down trees They?re putting up reindeer And singing songs of joy and peace I wish I had a river I could skate away on It was revealed in 1997 that she had put a baby up for adoption. Dhe dated Neil Young y'know...What a baby that would be.
