14 minutes and 45 seconds with barely an ounce of fat (they mess up the ending which sounds edited on).

Changed the musical landscape. One of those songs for which there's a before and after.

The bassline is a slight variation on Chic's Good Times as would be the bassline on Queen's Another One Bites the Dust.

I would recommend watching the first season of documentary series Hip Hop Evolution - it might change your opinion on Rapper's Delight and who the real pioneers were.

I know plenty of the originators, @kelicopter, from the deep seeds like The Last Poets through to those who set the scene like Grandmaster Caz, DJ Kool Herc, Pete DJ Jones, DJ Hollywood, where Rapper's Delight matters is that it took mainstream. Top 40 in the US, top 10 across much of Europe, top 20 in Australia, number 1 in Canada, number 3 in the UK. Every genre has always needed that artist, that song, that moment, which crosses over and takes it mainstream, and in the case of rap The Sugarhill Gang and Rapper's Delight was the artist, song, and moment rap crossed over.

Recently been digging "Fearless" and "San Tropez" from Meddle by Pink Floyd (beachy vibes) and now it's "Motorways (Erase It)" by Dhani Harrison, which I was kinda obsessed with last year around this time and now it's very nostalgic. heart

Fixing a hole where the rain gets in during my spare time.

Fixing a hole in the ocean if I'm daring enough.

Doesn't really stop my wandering mind.

I just really like repairing stuff

Have You Ever Loved Somebody by The Hollies. I went through a brief Hollies phase in my freshman year of high school, but since that was probably the darkest period of my life, I haven't really been able to enjoy them since then, and I had especially bad associations with this song for some reason. Yesterday , however, I decided to listen to it again, after eight long years of avoiding it...and I really like it! It's kind of simple, and very sixties, but I certainly don't count the latter against it.

God ! I just love this so much! Been hunting for a while and someone put it up on YT in May. Th' Faith Healers doing a slightly rewritten version of Badfinger's/Harry Nilsson's/Mariah Carey's Without You for John Peel on 27 January 1994 - completely unlike any of those versions. It has been turned into - and I know no other way to describe it - a crunchy piece of Indie angst...

Been played a dozen or so times since I discovered it on Saturday; as has Gabrielle by Shane MacGowan's (The Pogues) first group, The Nipple Erectors (often known as the The Nips nowadays because people think Nipple Erectors a bit rude)...

"Right now," nuthin' - this single (Atlantic's biggest-ever seller to that point) has been kicking my ass for 40+ years now!

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"
-- Paul McCartney
