I was going to turn it down two weeks ago, but I listened to it more than once and it grew on me. Leave the volume as it is (who knows? Maybe in another two weeks I’ll turn it up!)

It’s alright but this wasn’t my thing. Turn it down

Turn it up. Great song, great music, great lyrics, great singer.

 

Now a masterpiece apparently co-written by Jim Morrison, Robby Krieger, Ray Manzarek and John Densmore. The Doors playing his 1971 hit

Jim wrote some songs on his own…  The lyric sites are so pathetic, they never give the author, just the person who hit most recently with it (and sometimes earlier, including the original, versions).  Ahh – Wikipedia credits all 4 as the authors, and we know it’s always right ;)   A lot of the Doors songs are written by Jim alone – thus his gaining the moniker “An American Poet”.  But a lot were collaborations of the whole band.

Half of what I say is meaningless...

Since Matt Busby didn’t post a song, I’ll just rate “Riders On The Storm” again.  Turn it up.

 

I can’t decide on a song to post, so I’m just gonna put iTunes on shuffle and post the first thing that comes up.

Great arrangements, great song. Unfortunately I don’t like (I’ve never liked) Little Richard’s voice. Leave the volume as it is.

 

Guys, let me know what you think of Peter Murphy’s

Didn’t like that at all, sorry @Oudis . Production, song, singing. But then, I’ve always hated Peter’s singing, back to his Bauhaus days. (Give me Little Richard please :D Or Love And Rockets.) Turn it down (at least to where I can’t hear the drums.) 

 

This song nearly drove me nuts when it wouldn’t leave my head for four days last June, after I heard it twice one night.

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!"

Turn it up; I really liked it. Perfect for a Tarantino film, isn’t it?

OK, OK, nobody says it, I’ll say it: turn Carrousel down. It’s a masterpiece but you, bunch of philistines, didn’t like it, is that right? You are at least polite, I’ll give you that: you don’t want to say you don’t like it. But seriously, two weeks and nobody has posted anything!

I wouldn’t call it a masterpiece but it is alright I like the background music so I guess I’ll turn it up.

That’s not the style of rock I usually get into, but that was pretty cool. Also liked the trippy expressionist video. Turn it up.

 

I’ll give Siouxsie another chance with her side project, The Creatures.

Nice song –that’s what I’d call it, “nice”. Turn it up.

Now a song I got to know through my now ex, who spoke French. The Great Edith Piaf in The Sad Song Of Poor John

La Goualante du Pauvre Jean

Turn that up definitely, that was quite enjoyable! I’d never seen any footage of Piaf before – I barely know her music, really. (Got one budget CD comp that I’ve never given a lot of time to, largely because I don’t understand 99% of what she sings (for shame, a Canadian who knows approximately no French)

 

OK, this song was supposedly possibly intended as a sarcastic, cynical response to “All You Need Is Love ” – Frank Zappa and the Mothers of Invention doing “Oh No/The Orange County Lumber Truck”

Love Weasels… so turn it up! (Always thought that track was more influenced by Love’s jaw-droppingly brilliant Forever Changes album).

I’ve never been a fan of the arrangements on those songs, but the songs themselves tell great stories. And that voice! Turn it up.

I never get tired of listening to and watching Freddie King…

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, let it roll for all its worth. And all the children boogie.

I’m only a moderate blues fan, but that was pretty great, turn it UP! Again, this is the first performance footage of the artist in question that I’ve seen, which is cool – who knew he had such an unusual picking style?! (BTW when/where is that taken from, @Zig – some local Memphis TV thing about 1968 is my guess?) I definitely prefer my blues to be funky and grooving, so that helped too.

OK, it’s DISCO TIME so GET DOWN and turn it up! (Or down)(But really you should turn it up to feel its awesomeness)
