See? At this point, why even care if you don't get equally polite replies as yours? *facepalm*

Listening to Winamp shuffle, what do I hear? The Animals' spectacular "House Of The Rising Sun". It's sheer coolness layered with coolnesses. It's freshly cool as back then. The band did the song the best.

"...Champions", Queen - "of the world".
BMB - figured what can't stand about it - the "be my be my" etc. bits sung by Estelle with Nedra. Ronny should've sung without girls. Or, Phil or smb. should've made different melody pattern to girls to sing. The drum intro isn't fave either. Ronny sings single paired with different wall of sound layers plus different drum pattern in the intro = good.
"Memphis, T", Chuck Berry etc. - guitar. Dislike melody.
"...Winner...", ABBA - tag's high-pitched piano plays with answering harmony chants.
"...Boots...", Nancy Sinatra - such dreadful epic fail ditty it's not even funny. The bizarre intro/ riff is best thing to tell about.

Splendid! SU got 7 5's! 3D Really good to see that people appreciate Brian-lead SU. I suspected it wouldn't rate well due to popular view that Carl/ Brian SU is definitive. To me, this is THE SU.

Today's song is 5. Cool fragments meshed together with creativity.

2rab2591 & co: Why exactly you reply with defense towards the OP? There's CLEARLY zero "recent insults" (keyword "recent") since the OP's last visit here. As you see, the last 20-25 posts here is the OP engaging in dialog with various posters. What the OP even talks about? You know full well there isn't any "recent insult". The OP baited you. Nobody had new questions posed to the OP since his last visit, the thread been quiet, thus to bring attention to it, he went to talk about "recently" being insulted, when actually he brought up ancient past year stuff he replied to *already*, *done & finished*. It's like this - must do sth. to bring thread back in action. How? By playing victim, so you, people, will defend him. It's amazing that, despite knowing there weren't any insults *recently*, you still replied, when instead you could point out precisely that.

Chocolate Watch Band's "I'm Not Like Everybody Else" is thousand times cooler than The Kinks'. It's super, add to it the fact the vocalist channels Mick Jagger as if Mick secretly sang as guest lead singer during CWB's INLEE session. Being Mick Jagger's fan, it's big plus.

Aerovons' McCartney-esque "Here" should've been in the album final tracklist & dullfest "Bessy Goodhart" & few songs in the can instead.

Cat accidentally rang the aunt, she typed to me at whatsapp that he meowed at her & she said she'll buy him cat food for free due to such intriguing call. But, it's joke - she hates cats. Fun lil news.

Apropos of very little, but Jeff Bridges shares a birthday (December 4) with...Dennis Wilson.


And with . . . myself.
& Don Malcolm, the poster you quote.

Good news about Jean Sievers. Can't say I'm Jeff Bridges fan (rather Lloyd's fan in the acting Bridges fam) but big respect to him being the band's fan. 3D Btw, agree that "wifeandmanagers" is real dumb, idiotic, likely puked up term which can't be taken seriously.

SFC is 5. I like this recreated version. As usual, I judge songs individually, not doing 60s vs. 2000s compare.

Save the main melody riff, IATM is boring to the fault.
I am usually partial to any GH songs on the Beatles albums, but I agree, this is one of his lesser efforts.
Yep. This, LLL, INY, DBM, S & ILYTM would be the few songs written by George I dislike. But he's right next to Paul in terms of songwriting.

Perhaps this thread should be moved to the 'General Entertainment' section?

Really, if the Band's vocalists are the thing turning you off ....is there any other way you can access these handful of perfect songs by Robbie Robertson?
No. Why access? Thousands good/ better songs.

"The Saddest Songs" by Joyful Joy-Merrys - joyfully sad song (or sadly joyful song? Anyhoo, fits the thread).

I recall seeing clips of Dave being handed assorted BB albums he didnít play on to sign during the C50 and thinking thatís not right. It was probably easier to sign them than not I guess.
What made you think it isn't right? It's very easy thing to do, wouldn't hurt & be skin off him if he signs albums he isn't pictured. Doesn't seem big deal. Besides, even if he didn't play, say, Pet Sounds, he'd been BB when they began & the band going to different path with PS without him didn't & will not brush it away.
