Neil Young - Like a Hurricane...I think this may be the best song ever.

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.

I've been listening to some of our locals this afternoon.  My Brother Woody has a great album he put out in 2007.  Go give it a listen.  Love "Getting Old Goes with Getting Fat" - He nails the Nilsson sound.  "I Only Like Songs With Bops, Oohs and Aahs" - is Beach Boys '67/'68 perfect.
And spent over a hour on SoundCloud playing zachrwolfe, EgoHanger1966 and rab2591 together and alone.  We've got some great music right here at this forum.
Right now I have Jobim's Wave album on.

Is it really the song's title? I'm gonna give it a listen, sounds like a very nice tribute to The BBs (harmonies). Speaking of our locals, this is how I think the pairings should be:

rab-Woodstock (I heard that "Ceremony" song & it hit me that they fit together more than if it were Woodstock with Zach or rab with Ego or EoL with rab)
Zach-Ego (the most organic duet imo)
EoL (aka mypetsounds)-Swedish Frog (these 2 have kinda similar writing style, so why not give it a chance?)

But in the end, they're all e-friends.

The Beta Band - Round the Bend (absolutely great song! I like the voice of the lead singer, it's very kind, also cool electronic noises & nice video with fields & tractor)
Jeffrey Foskett-"Thru My Window" (shameless IKTAA rip-off but I still think it's fantastic, 2nd to none in Jeff's catalog. Lots of earworms. Then I like his cover of Shoes tune "Your Very Eyes". Not on Youtube, but the original is. utterly beautiful)

I'd post this in a "what are you watching thread", but no such thread exists...

The full performance (w/introduction by Richard Pryor) of the Jackson 5 on the Motown 25 special. I had only seen the Billie Jean performance before, and I know how much it's lauded and all,but I didn't quite appreciate it that much until I saw it in context, with the Jackson 5 songs beforehand and everything, which just makes it so much cooler. Much more experiential, or whatever it is...

King Crimson - Red. I've been going chronologically through their discography, but this is only the 3rd albums of theirs that I've come to love so far. The debut is still my favourite, I think.

What if you'd post it on here? It's a bit different, I know, but so what? And you still kinda said you liked this J5 video.

Oasis - What's The Story Morning Glory. I gotta say, I'm completely dumbfounded by the amount of negative, revisionist reviews this album gets, particularly on Rate Your Music. I think it's still fantastic, one of those records that almost reads like a greatest hits compilation, just like Thriller or Nevermind.

  Jan & Dean - The DRAG CITY/POP SYMPHONY twofer CD. DRAG came out the same time as LITTLE DEUCE COUPE. The first Rock & Roll concept albums? (Could "Dead Man's Curve" be the first rock opera?) POP SYMPHONY could be considered a vanity project, but all these years later it serves as a calling card for Jan Berry's talents. A nice mood record.

I don't know if it's that revisionist.  Some of us disliked them back then.  Honestly, I'm more surprised at all the fuss made over them now, but I guess that's the POV of someone who thinks they're overrated, just as you seem to find them underrated.  Hope you're enjoying the reissues, though.
