Wow @ Paul giving Linda what seems like a Harrisong arrangement, with all those gently strummed (and slid) guitars! Linda's vocal is admirable, unaffected and plainly pretty, like the lady herself, and the tune is nice.   

Agreed! I'm very fond of it. I have to say it also gave me slight Richard Wright vibes, like something from his (very mellow) 1978 solo album Wet Dream. It's like the perfect blend of Wings and Floyd heart


Sorry about the new page, lads, carry on a-hard-days-night-ringo-12

Hmmm, keep that where it is.

 

This is Gza from the Wu Tang Clan. I love the way he gets so many famous people's names into the song. It's called Fame:

Lyrics are very clever, all those puns. (I'd  have to consult a lyric sheet to see how many celebs namechecks I missed...) GZAs voice and delivery are strong too, so it's unfortunate that the beats and music overall just lie there, neither swinging nor funky nor slamming enough to make me really sit up and listen. I'll turn it up 1/2 for its lyrics.

Didn't care for that at all, I'm afraid; too slow, and no hooks. Turn it down.

Something kinda "Dear Prudence "-ish about this track:

@vonbontee Turn "Even In The Quietest Moments" a-hard-days-night-ringo-8a-hard-days-night-ringo-8a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 acoustic ballads can have my soul and Supertramp is pretty cool too!

@Von Bontee Turn Ms Etheridge up too, I like her aggression almost as I like DAT SLAPPY BASS

and thanks for almost single-handedly keeping this thread alive! I thought of it again recently and meant to dig it up and blow off the dust...

Oh yeah definitely turn Talking Heads up. I personally think More Songs About Buildings and Food is underrated as well, so I'm happy to see it getting some love.

Okay, my turn! I have found maybe one or two Genesis fans in my 8 or so years of being one myself, but maybe my luck will be better here.

Well, I'm not much of a fan.  Even when I was in my peak English-prog phase around 1985, I ranked them below Crimson, Yes, Floyd, Tull, even ELP. But I did enjoy "Lamb" and their live album, on which a version of "Musical Box" appears. As for this studio take (not much different), I like the heavy Deep Purplish bits the best. Turn it up once they kick in.

Haha, thanks a-hard-days-night-john-6 I've always been quite sensitive to loud/harsh/trebly sounds. ahdn_paul_01 Talking Heads is great and nearly invariably must be turned up, one of these days I've gotta watch the whole Stop Making Sense film. ahdn_john_08_gif

Beatlebug put forth, turn this up or down
