Off Topic: Favorite Music?


Recommended Posts

 

Great clip, darkblue! I've never seen it. I've seen the "video" of them singing RAIN in the english garden but not this one. Yeah, McCartney's bass playing is great in this song. Not only did the Beatles set the gold standard in terms of quality but also quantity: 20 albums in 7 years.

 

 

Here's another of my favorite "obscure" Beatle songs:

It's a great tune. Lennon never thought much of it but I think it is very interesting musically. The intro, the bridge and the end alond with the difficult guitar solo make the song more fun than it probably is just written out.

 

Another fun song with a most interesting chord -

Yep. And they always play the same 20 songs over & over on the radio.

A great one hit wonder, that Venus. I love the part where she goes " Aaahh...." you get the idea.

 

And Holst is no slouch in the Venus music department either. I remember, my father loved classical music, and he introduced me to Holst's "Planets Suite".

 

( by the way, have you checked your pms' lately? ?:| )

I didn't "planet" this way, but here's another "Venus" for you:

That movie looks really intriguing, musicalnovelty. Now I want to see the whole thing. I'm a big fan of Robert Walker, and I'd never heard of this one.

 

casablancalover, there's nothing like Motown girl groups to get the blood stirring. Sometimes, just to work in a little extra exercise, I close all the curtains ( don't want anyone to see me), throw on one of the discs from my Motown boxed set ( it's called "Hitsville USA" or something), turn up the volume, and dance dance dance. Here's a good example of what I mean:

misswonderly!! Hey!! HAHAHAHA... The dating scene is tough enough without gals in their teens (at the time) complaining a good man is hard to find.

 

But keeping with the theme, slightly gender-bent, more Motown..

One Touch of Venus is entertaining. It's very sit-com to me. I can't help to think it inspired the TV show "I Dream of Jeannie" in many respects.

 

Great song out of it.

To be accurate, actually Jackie Wilson never was a Motown artist (that is, he was never on the Motown record label).

Most of his records were on Brunswick. Early stuff was on various labels including Dee Gee, Federal, King, Jubilee, and Decca.

Then, later many of his hits were reissued on various oldies reissue labels. But never Motown.
