I havn't seen a topic about the Wall on this board, so discuss what you think about this movie based on the album by Pink Floyd.

I've never seen it myself; never knew 1 existed O_o


"The Wall" is probably the greatest rock movie ever made. It is the kind of film that one can watch over and over again and either feel one understands it better ( a lot of symbolism ) or gets new thoughts about it that replace one's previous assumptions . Pick it up if you're a fan of the album as it will enhance your listening when you see the imagery that the band ( or maybe just Roger Waters ) wanted to have go along with it.

Any of ya know if Pink Floyd made Dark Side of the Moon go along with the Wizard of Oz on purpose?

Ooo, just downloaded Imagine sheet music for piano! :)

I've heard of all those Queen ones, Batman. :D Not the Pink Floyd ones though; just Fearless :) And that top list you gave, I've only heard of Jimi Hendrix from it.

Okay Pharoah I'm about to take you on a musical tour that will blow your mind right outta your butthole. ;)

The fact that you have a download service will make your transition to a rocker much much easier, here is a tour of everything you NEED to download thru the ages, not to say that there aren't more good songs, these are just the necesities.

Proud Mary

movin' on to 70s (there's great 60s stuff missing tho, but those are the bare necesities)

ugh my brain hurts and can't think of many more big 70s classic rockers, someone else pick up the slack, anyway on to late 70s..... that's right it's punk rock time

Ramones- I Wanna Be Sedated, Rock 'n' Roll High School, Blitzgrieg Bop.

Iggy Pop(I will introduce you to more of him at a later time)- Lust For Life

Sex Pistols- Anarchy In The UK

Clash- Rock The Casbah, Should I Stay Or Should I Go? White Riot, London Calling.

Joy Division- Love Will Tear Us Apart.

okay after punk you have to make a choice, for we have to enter the wasteland that is the 80s, that choice is between the vile path of hair metal, or the wonders of alternative (personally if you grew up listening to classical, I think you'd prefer the soaring majesticness of alt-rock( 'cuz it's all frickin' symphonic!) to the excess of hair metal)

make your choice, I gotta go, have fun downloading the above list.

If you skip the 60s I will be forced to remove your heart.... rectally, and trust me it will be painful.

I mean then you'd miss out on Pink Floyd, some Zeppelin, Beatles, Stones, CCR, Stooges, oh and Velvet Underground!!!! how could you skip the VU!

I like Pink Floyd, some Led Zeppelin, and some Beatles :D I don't NEED the Stones, CCR, Stooges, or VU (runs & hides from heart-snatcher).

Have you listened to all the Beatles tho? doubtful, have you listened to all the Stones, or any VU (and the freakin' Stooges!!), trust me you need some of that stuff.

A lot of the Beatles (I guess). Help, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band, Imagine (and a few other by John Lennon), and Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds... :D Enough for me :)

Never the Stones, nor VU, or the 'Stooges'. :D

Then therefore you are blind to the fact that you need to listen to those. The recording techniques that the Stooges and VU came up with a relevant to today, and totally undated.

Then as far as Beatles only what 5 songs?!!! that's hardly enough, on my mp3 player I have about 75 Beatles songs that I listen to on a regular basis.
