Re: The Ultimate Women's Album - Side 1 Track 5 Vote - Round 2

Does a song just rest on melody and lyrics though? Or is the whole vibe the thing that counts? That imperceptible thing which marks out a great record. There's thousands of songs with pretty, well-constructed melodies which I despise. Then there's songs which rant away on one note which are superb....

Re: The Ultimate Women's Album - Side 1 Track 5 Vote - Round 2

Of course not. Hence Louie Louie being a classic. This all gets muddled, particularly when nostalgia comes into play. Hmmm dunno about the nostalgia thing. It's a great tune and it's being played by some of the biggest names in reggae. If it were released it would be a sure fire number 1. Didn't Li...

Re: The Ultimate Women's Album - Side 1 Track 5 Vote - Round 2

Just listened to it like three times in a row and I just don't get it. Like I said, it's fine, the music is great and there is some charm to the vocals, but the melody isn't particularly strong and they aren't very good singers. I guess that's part of the charm, but this running away with this comp...

Re: The Clash observations thread.

This is quite possibly my favourite live Clash footage. Did it get any better than this?

Another thing to remember is this is, after all, a Clash board. Uptown Top Ranking is the only song from that era here. I certainly have a nostalgic connection to it having heard it everywhere as a kid. Will be the same with a few others I should imagine.

Re: The Ultimate Women's Album - Side 1 Track 5 Vote - Round 2

This Althea and Donna track is interesting. I have never heard of it before (seems like it was a big hit in UK only) and the backstory is quite unique. It's good but certainly pales in comparison to pretty much every nominated track. Looks like it's going to win regardless, which is fine, since it'...

Re: The KISS thread

I got home last night with my girlfriend and she went into the kitchen to make us a drink. I put a music channel on and Krazy Nights by KISS was on. She came back through saying "who's that singing, it sounds like you" lol. I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. Can't see the resemblance myself! He...

Good to hear mate, glad the gig went well and enjoy the vino pal. Nice one mate. Gonna get my shuffle on right now. Ahh cool back out playing live. Nice one, did you play your new tunes? Just one of them mate as we've had limited rehearsal, hence the apprehension. ;) I never got people (fans) not b...
