Unfortunately, in my younger and more irresponsible days, YES! OH GOD! MY BRAIN IS STILL BLEEDING!

A very stoned night in my late teens, collapsed on a friend's sofa for the night, he told me he knew I liked Lou and he had a rare tape I probably hadn't heard, and would I like to. I nod vigorously and he puts it on, on auto reverse, as he heads off to his bed. I'm left there with this noise, too wrecked to move, and every time there's a little silence because it's got to end of the side, the fooking thing switches and plays the other side!

Drugs are bad! (Except the ones that are good!)

And, sorry, Lulu is bad, but not Metal Machine Music bad!

In my younger and somewhat irresponsible days, I never was a drink and drugs person. I think those wretched PSAs they used to show you in school got through to me successfully, because I actually turned down marijuana in high school, and I didn't even drink a beer until I was 27. But since I don't have the tolerance to listen to Metal Machine Music, and you know your Lou Reed, I'll take your word for it.

^^ When I hovered over the preview of forum topics, I thought you'd be linking to Revolution 9.  But this'll do the job.

Beware of sadness. It can hit you. It can hurt you. Make you sore and what is more, that is not what you are here for. - George

Check out my fan video for Paul's song "Appreciate" at YouTube and Vimeo.

Revolution 9? You could listen to that for hours and hours picking out all the sounds and images going on in there.

Ive always found Shatner's Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds more laughable than painful. And talking of Shatner if anyone missed it some very clever person created a fantastic record using parts of one of his interviews - Shatner of The Mountain.

heh - that one would work.

On "My Sweet Lord", there are times I really love it, like when it kicks in on the 'Bangladesh' concert - other times it bores me a bit (like the last few minutes of "Hey Jude" does if I am not in the mood).  Come to think of it, endless 'nana na na's might be an effective torture tool.

Or the "very, very, very, very, very, very hard" part from "Feet in the Clouds" put on a continuous loop might crack some hard cases. Slowing it down (like slow motion sound) might soften them up even faster.

Ack! Ack! Sorry. a-hard-days-night-ringo-14I was going to preface this post with saying that someone in another thread mentioned that they didn't like this part in the song. It was in one of those "what song do you not like" threads.

I actually love the song. It is one of those *Paul at his cutest and most endearing* songs. And that part doesn't really bother me, except that I don't understand how it fits into the song. If you figure it out when you listen to the song, please enlighten me.

Torture?  Try my roommate in college trying to learn to ply Stairway.  So. Bad.

From the same guy behind Friday (the Rebecca Black song posted previously). So many questions.

I've got one: why does this guy continually pursue teenage girls to sing his songs? ahdn_paul_01

Teenage girls are the perfect pop music audience!

Unfortunately, audience NOT= performer.

Aw damn, how did I miss a derailed discussion of Metal Machine Music?! That's a hard listen, but it can be interesting and enjoyable under the right circumstances. Headphones are important. There's no great need to play more than one side (or two) in succession. (Only three times in 20+ years have I played sides 1 through 4 nonstop.) And yeah, drugs are a valuable listening tool. :) But I rarely find the time to listen to it more than once a year, same as Life With the Lions or Electronic Sound. This kind of abrasive noise becomes less necessary when you hit middle age, I find.

[As for "the fooking thing" switching and playing the other side...were you aware that the original vinyl had a locked groove on Side 4 so it would play FOREVER?]
