Saw him live on the going to a town tour. He is the real deal singing wise but the live show was too long and a drag

Been a fan since the Cohen cover on the shrek soundtrack

His discography is 90% fillers though but the good songs are something else:

Dont know what it is
California
Cigarettes and chocolate milk
11:11

No one is saying any curse words to anyone. Rather, as I see it, all the BB are trying to find their way and to comprehend what "together" can possibly mean in the here and now. What will Al think of this?  It will likely make him tall Brian and Make that "we got to do something together."

So I hope.
hey kofi annan. Why dont you shut the F up already and retire?

The cycle theories about trends in pop music seems very convincing at the moment.....

I never thought the type of techno that once dominated european radio, like Scooter and Sasha and Robert Miles would ever get back into the mainstream.

But it's happening. Zedd, are you gonna stay the night (I like it actually),Aviici just a lot songs I hear on CHR and Adult Cont radio sound like that tasteless techno from the 90s

Hell Bastion's song Pompei (close your eyes) remind me of 90s hit Ameno

Nope but Last stop this town (which had on a promo cd from Universal weeks before it was released back in ~98) is on my top 10 songs of all time. Incredible song...lyrics, vocals, production.

I'm not going to argue it's just my opinion

Overrated: Exile on Main St....Beggars Banquet is underrated relative to Exile
8  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: R.I.P. Lou Reed on: November 04, 2013, 12:21:10 PM
Lou Reed was about as liberal as you can get.
Where did he stand politically?

This article should answer your question.  He was a very smart man.

http://www.thenation.com/blog/176852/lou-reeds-more-perfect-union-politics

But the rich 70-year old somehow, magically jumped the waiting list.

Again, where did Reed stand politically? I'm offended by this story.

Steve Jobs did it, too. Not hard, just expensive. You get on the waiting list in multiple states.

I don't see what politics have to do with it, particularly. The urge to live transcends political leanings (ask Dick Cheney's new heart about that).
That just makes it all the worse. What a hypocrite. It was all fun and cool to hang with the Occupy wall street movement, he had fun with his self-rightous "I'm with the working class" sentiments....but in the end he was the rich old white male. He was with the elite. What are the odds that he left some 30 or 40 year old guy or woman for dead to get that liver?

9  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: R.I.P. Lou Reed on: October 30, 2013, 10:29:38 AM
This definitely leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth. Everything about that liver transplant sounded fishy and it didn't do much good in the end.

Who is the 20-year old, the 30-year old or even the 40-year old who is dead today because a rich 71-year old paid and bribed people for that liver?

Where did he stand politically? I know he desribed himself as aligned with democrats/liberals when U.S invaded Iraq in 2003/04.

Short of organized crime "organ harvesting", no one is murdered to donate a liver.  One is put on a list and when someone passes who has willed their organs for transplant and is compatible and your number is up then you are given that liver.  Various criteria go into your eligibility and it can be a long wait -- I had a friend die last year waiting for one.  I imagine money could move you up the list, unfortunately, but I don't know.

Anyway, your statement that Lou Reed bribed and someone was killed for a liver seems pretty irresponsible to me, to put it mildly.
Excuse me...I was not suggesting that Reed purchased a liver from China (that happens too btw) or ordered a hit on someone....I'm suggesting that he jumped the waiting list and that someone who really, really needed that liver....someone who had tens of years left to live, maybe 20, maybe 40 years left... that person really needed that liver.

But the rich 70-year old somehow, magically jumped the waiting list.

Again, where did Reed stand politically? I'm offended by this story.

She has a great song called Shoreline...try to find the shorter single version. I like that one better.

So Elvis didn't do a concert between 60 and 72??


Well, they used a confusing wording.

Etched in music history, 1973 was a crucial watershed year for Presley, in the wake of his return to extended concert touring in 1972, after 12 years away from the stage and 27 movies in Hollywood.

1972 marked the first year of extended touring. In '69 he only played Vegas. The first tour was in '70 but as in '71 he was still mostly in Vegas with some small tours thrown in. 1972 had him touring across the country, selling out Madison Square Garden 4 times in a row and making the concert movie Elvis On Tour.
While on this topic I have to post the link to this website that I can't praise enough:
Elvis Presley In Concert


Cool! Would green rep if I could!

Obviously I have to listen to that Fire piece again. Always seemed like something that stemmed out of a jam session while that overture is a very though-out piece of music bro

He fell into the trap. Typical music critic behavior to cite Noel Gallagher least favorite Oasis album. That's what they all do. Go ahead...
17  Non Smiley Smile Stuff / General Music Discussion / Re: 1997 on: May 02, 2013, 05:10:22 AM
In the U.S that was a period when the Alternative craze cooled down while the post-grunge was still alive and the nu-metal was bubbling to take over in a year or two....

Oasis be here now is great....

Be Here Now is a fucking scourge. Complete and utter creative bankruptcy meets cocaine psychosis.

Spiritualizeds Ladies & Gentlemen, We Are Floating In Space is a good 1997 album.

Advocate of stereotypical music critic opinions says what?

I wonder if Mike still rubs Kokomo in Brian's face like its 1988.
So now all of a sudden it's a bad thing to write a no.1 song?
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Carl and Mike's relationship on: April 29, 2013, 07:06:47 AM
What Mike's hopes for SIP failed to take into account was that pop radio had changed dramatically since Kokomo hit #1.

He also couldn't admit that maybe, just maybe, Kokomo was a fluke.
A no.1 song and a platinum album is historic.

Getcha back reached #26, Still cruisin reached #9 on Adult contemporary radio (just a quick look at wikipedia).....

Why is it a fluke?

I would have loved it a lot more if it wasn't shuffled together with Kiss my baby and She knows me too well....those 2 songs really outshine PLMW
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: I was thinking, what if Landy made Brian finish SMiLE in the late 80s? on: April 25, 2013, 03:16:12 AM
IMO Brian was a better singer "under" Landy, he was a better composer under Landy...but they obviously worked with a S***-producer for the self-titled.

So for me it all depends on who would have produced it. With the right producer and band leader it could have been a better product than the 2004-05 album.

So let me get this straight. Are you saying Brian didn't come into his own as a singer and composer until he was under Landy?

Please tell me I'm misunderstanding you here, because the idea that someone could actually think this makes me feel like the accepted physical laws of the universe are breaking down.
No I'm just saying that for some reason he got worse after Landy was pushed out.
25  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Carl and Mike's relationship on: April 25, 2013, 02:45:35 AM
The huge success of Kokomo had to be a boost in morale for Mike and Carl and their friendship....Mike's speech at HoF probably hurt equally though....what do you think?
