Oh, Beatlebug ...

I'm listening to The Rain Song.

  

Yay, Fiddy's about to adopt a second band to love! (and Beatlebug chose a great one to steer her towards!) 

  

Whoa, whoa, hold your horses, VB!

I've only heard one song, don't get too excited. (Though it was a very good song. a-hard-days-night-john-1 Look how much I've grown!) Besides, I plan to investigate Pink Floyd before Led Zeppelin-- I just don't have any PF on my phone.

...

Oh, right, better stay on topic.

Before: Woman Don't You Cry For Me, Beautiful Girl, This Song, See Yourself

Currently: It's What You Value

Next: True Love, Pure Smokey, Crackerbox Palace, etc.

Listening to to Ziggy Starrdust right now, was listening to Transformer by Lou Reed. I need to get some Beach Boys out because it's been mid-seventies all day around here... my god, the dirt pig was right. 

1. JEALOUS.

2. No it wasn't, nothing's changed in my neck of the woods... yet.

3. Dirt pig?!?!?!?! The groundhog isn't going to bring you any presents spring next year if you talk like that!

4. I wonder if the Easter Bunny and the groundhog know each other...

and this is how threads get derailed, isn't it. Whoops...

It is inDEED a very good song. ahdn_george_06 It consistently stays in my top 2 Zepp songs, which is saying a lot because I FECKING LOVE LED ZEPPELIN *typing whilst wearing a Led Zepp shirt*

But by all means get into the Floyd before Zepp, you'll find that they are totally polar opposites and both essential to a well-rounded classic rock education. a-hard-days-night-john-6 (I actually don't understand people who don't like Zepp, though I can almost see why a very unwise person mightn't like the Floyd. Sorry Walrian. a-hard-days-night-paul-7)

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8 ...I love playing it, it's one of the most satisfying guitar pieces I know. Especially the ending, heaven on Earth.

Speaking of, I'm currently listening to Led Zeppelin I and I will probably end up going on a Zepp-binge today. HOOOOAAAAAYYYYYYY BAAAAAYYYBE I WANNA TELL YOU THAT I LOVE YOU SOOOOOO paul-mccartney

I mean, I can definitely understand the issues people have with Zeppelin, as I have a few myself. But as @Beatlebug said, they are certainly an essential part of any music fan's education, along with Floyd. When you're ready to embark on their stuff, I'd recommend starting with either their first album, or their fourth. My favourite songs are Ten Years Gone, The Rain Song, Going To California and Ramble On.

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

^Solid choices. a-hard-days-night-ringo-8

Okay, fine, I can see why some might find Robert's voice a little annoying, or Bonzo's drums too loud... a-hard-days-night-ringo-13 but they sound perfect to me heart

I'd definitely start with their first album for historical context, but I realise that their fourth is probably going to be a little more accessible to most -- or Houses of the Holy, that one reminds me of Revolver for eclectic sunshininess.

Currently listening to Wild Life by Wings and feelin' the nostalgias. a-hard-days-night-paul-7 heart

There's an interesting mix of styles on there. I'm all for listening to albums all the way through, but be warned that HOTH is probably their most experimental album, so if you don't like what you hear it's not necessarily typical of their output. The Rain Song is on there though, and that has to be my favourite song of theirs. It's pure bliss, and you might notice Jimmy "quotes" Something in the first two chords.

Good to know, thanks for the heads up. john-lennon-salute_gif

Right now I am not listening to anything, but hopefully I'll be listening to George Harrison (the album) very soon!

Cool! I wish I owned those deluxe editions 🙁  I've only got the expanded "Coda"...

Now playing - Soft Machine, Third

 

Recorded who-knows-when exactly in 1970...(Beatles don't do much of anything other than break up 🙁  )

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

I've only got the deluxe versions of Zepp I and Physical Graffiti. They're pretty cool.

The wizard-friend recommended this to me and I'm enjoying it, though I have no idea why as it's not in my usual sort of lane at all...
