Right now? Lather by Jefferson Airplane. But I'm also on a lifelong kick from It's All Too Much .

I just heard this song for the first time and was deeply haunted by it from the instant it hit my ears, and it only haunts me more the more I listen to it. I'm pretty sure I knew this song very personally at some point in a previous incarnation.

Helplessly Hoping is an amazing feat of songwriting. The way that the chorus counts up is brilliant. “One Person, too alone, three together, they are for each other.

The opening piano chords are nothing short of iconic:

If we're going for video game soundtracks I'm actually one mission short of finishing GTA III for like the fifth time in my life. And the song is absolutely intoxicating. My fav GTA soundtrack. That jazzy piano is so damn filthy I loOoOove it. Volume Alpha is a classic btw.

 

Also while playing GTA I've been on a Bitches Brew kick for the entire week. And what used to be my least favourite track now is really growing on me and I've been listening to it nonstop:

 

Those sections between 3:10-5:10 / 8:48-10:56 are sheer madness and I love it.

Wondering how such a simple song and composition can be so powerful. His vocals are something else, hauntingly beautiful.

^^ Bitches Brew really clicked for me a while go. I think 'Spanish Key' is my favourite, whereas in the past it had always been 'Miles Runs The Voodoo Down'.

Spanish Key has always been my favourite, it still is. To the best of my knowledge is probably the only track that ocassionally has a riff. And oh what a riff. Miles Runs the Voodoo Down is just so great as well, and don't even get me started on the Pharaoh's Dance's intro [first 3-minutes or so], which is probably one of my favourite pieces of music ever (although the rest of the song is a bit dragging).

While I'm on it

1) Spanish Key - 10/10

2) John McLaughlin - That damn guitar. 10/10

3) Pharaoh's Dance - Zawinul is a BEAST. 9/10

4) Miles Runs the Voodoo Down - 8/10

5) Sanctuary - 7/10

6) Bitches Brew - Excellent groove, but 30 minutes is too much, especially with that weird intro-middle-end part lasting three minutes EACH. 7/10

Damn I got to go and listen to the Complete Sesssions. Ever since I heard the absolutely stunning Complete In a Silent Way Sessions I've been postponing it since forever because it's hard to find 5 free goddamn hours.

But that track you just posted is sounding magnificent @sir walter raleigh!a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

Yeah that ones got the best groove of the bunch in my opinion, but if you get down with Bitches Brew the sessions are a real treat. Badass playing from every musician

So I adore Carole King anyway, and I think Tapestry is a faultless album, but I also found out today that this song played at Amy Winehouse's funeral. It gives it a whole new meaning.

@sir walter raleigh.

I understand why you once played "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" until your fingers bled, or something.

I get it.

I want to crawl inside the song and set up permanent residence.

Its in a really cool open tuning. EEEEBE Its essentially just a root and a fifth. The dulcimer is tuned the same way

B77D4BDF-7201-4D96-A303-512FD3619621.jpegImage Enlarger

We had one of these lying around the house for decades until I finally picked it up and restrung it. Inspired by Joni I began learning every song on it that I could

Suite: Judy Blue Eyes is perfect for the dulcimer, and that’s why the song has such an outdoorsy, naturalistic feel. The way that the dulcimer’s frets corresponds to a diatonic scale, Stephen Stills is using these scales all over the melody and solo section. Get a few friends together who know the song and can sing and its really not the most difficult tune to perform. 

Recently I’ve been on a huge Synchronicity II kick

Someone played a snippet of this in a live stream I was watching last night and I had to look for it afterwards. How pleased I was to learn it was an ELO song! (I dig that album artwork too)ahdn_george_08

 

Also on Suite Judy Blue Eyes, sometime last year I remember telling one of my college teachers about how I really liked the CSN debut album after hearing it for the first time and he immediately found a guitar, explained that tuning and played the entire thing for me right there, albeit his tuning was a semi-tone down (D# D# D# D# A# D#). I was told apparently Stephen Stills got it from one of his Buffalo Springfield bandmates a few years before.
