|Entrain - Dancin' in the Light (live)|
(Aug 07, 2006 - 06:13)
|Saw Entrain years ago at a small venue in Philly. Great high energy show with multi-instumentalists moving all over the stage. Unfortunatly this energy seemed unable to be transmitted to cd. But this tune DOES kick ass!!!|
|Elvis Costello & T-Bone Burnett - The People's Limousine|
(Aug 07, 2006 - 05:35)
Elvis Costello is a good example of one that has average talent that has made it big in the music business.Maybe it's because he's from Liverpool England?
Your handle would indicate a fondness for Jimmy Buffett..Now there is a career that's lasted way to long on below average talent. And Liverpool had nothing to do with it!!!

(Aug 04, 2006 - 07:35)
Love the whistle. I don't know any song before this that used it, and I can't think of once since then that has.
It's what you call being original.
It's what you call being hammered!!!!
|Brewer & Shipley - Witchi-Tai-To|
(Aug 04, 2006 - 05:37)
|I was thinking this and then found this:
One of the most unique things about the song, however (especially the Harpers' version), is the striking melodic and arrangement similarity to U2's "With or Without You." If you get a chance to listen to the two songs back-to-back, you'll wonder how they got away with it.

Id hardly call a track being played once every few days over played... Seriously if you thought that was over played listen to some Uk radio stations... They oftern play the same trace once every few hours.
As for this track Still loving it as always.
But this is not a UK radio station, bloke, but Radio Paradise....and this song is overplayed...

NO I meant what I said as in water on the brain.....
|James McMurtry - Safe Side|
(Aug 02, 2006 - 12:52)
James McMurtry seems to have a special niche depicting dark, menacing subcultures far from the experiences of most of us who are writing and listening here. I would rather hear lives of fear sung about than experience same. I do not perceive his attitude as being one of superiority. It seems to me that his goal is to convey look-over-your-shoulder lives in which someone is menaced . . . in a tone of warning. Who else does exactly that? Who else does that with such original turns of phrase (yes, you may cite Bob Dylan!).

|Gomez - All Too Much|
(Aug 01, 2006 - 10:41)
Selling out is changing your style to appeal to more people to make more money. They might've just natrually gone in this direction, but the existance of somewhere near a million other bands doing this exact thing...
You shouldn't like everything and everything shouldn't be doing it's best to get you to like it.
I live in a pop-culture vacuum of my own making. I don't care if gomez suddenly became as widely known as Gnarls Barkley, all that matters is what you think of this song. But make no mistake, that doesn't it matters to anyone but you.
A million other bands doing this exact thing???? HUH????

One minute my computer was streaming Radio Paradise and the great music I normally associate with that station, and the next moment it was streaming some second-rate pop station playing a crap song.
But wait... Nope. It's RP playing that crap song by a group called Guster. Don't know this group, but any idiot 9 yr old that's ever listened to pop music could have written and performed this song.
Please, never again!

It's a moot point these days because MTV really don't play music (although I hear MTV2 does)... However, don't be such a smart arse... I don't listen to a lot of radio stations... but I check in to see what they are playing and turn away cos I don't like it. See... I know what they play and I don't listen to them; not mutually exclusive although I am aware that I may be catching them at their worst when in fact they may play a ton of stuff that is just dreamy. Not.
Hey Stubs, If you'd like to check out a bit of public radio, go to XPN.org and listen live. It's radio from the University of Pennsylvania
|U2 - Love And Peace Or Else|
(Jul 19, 2006 - 12:14)
I think it depends on the song, album, etc. as to how great or mediocre they are.
I bet the Stones would give the skin off their back for a run like U2 has had.
Your kidding right? That sounds backwards...U2 hopes they're still around in another 20 years. The Stones have been at it for 40 some years!!!

(Jul 18, 2006 - 12:17)
I know it's not my radio station, but don't we have enough songs to play this once a year? I used to really like this song, but it has turned into an overplayed icon. Too much.

Why would I possibly like this song . . . the backup vocals are flat as hell, and John Hiatt's voice does not need any help sounding aweful. It is roughly produced, etc., etc. But for some reason, I still like it (a little bit). I don't think I would if I heard it too much though.

Hey, this is superb. Never heard of the band, but I liked the sound straight away. Thank you once again RP for a beautiful discovery.

Roy was pretty big. And he had a cool horse. And I guess Dale might have thought he looked pretty good. And he had that restaurant thing going for him. So,that's not so bad. Elvis did have that peanut butter sandwhich thing going. But, I don't remember a chain of Elvis restaurants. Anyway, Roy was pretty big.
LOL!! ROY...Rogers!! I get it... LOL!!!

Every time Radio Paradise plays a song that sounds anything LIKE a Stevie Ray Vaughan song, I have to change channels.. and refuse to send any money to the station.
Are you by extention ruling out anything that sounds like the blues...or an electric guitar? DORK!!
|Pink Floyd - Shine On You Crazy Diamond|
(Jul 06, 2006 - 05:35)
When I was listening to this, it dawned on me that I can't recall the last time that I've heard "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" played in its entirety over any broadcast medium. All we ever hear is parts I-V. Some RP listeners who weren't exposed to much PF might have never heard parts VI-IX. Gilmour's performance on the pedal steel is some of his best work. After seeing it in concert, the memory still sends shivvers up my spine! It's a shame to keep it unplayed for so long.
How about playing the flipside sometime? The title song makes a great lead-in. I've found it better to include "Wish You Were Here" and get the whole long transition to "Shine On" than to try to find a place to fade into part VI. (Grandpa: "Kids, during the Golden Age of Rock and Roll, bands made entire albums that were meant to be listened to all at once. That's right, for one brief, glorious period in time, Rock music was more than just singles...") It also makes a nice bumper to separate parts I-V and VI-IX, which weren't meant to be played back-to-back.
So Bill, do you have the guts to play a 30' set?
Dude I love that!!!! Albums... meant to be listened to...Thats one thing... but from start to finish???? No way!!!~ LOL!!! Great observation.

|Gomez - All Too Much|
(Jun 29, 2006 - 06:22)
Yeah, well, given the choice between musical artistry, integrity, and total loyal fan base or the prospect of money, more money, and more money I may be inclined towards the latter too. Then again, Gomez may be driven by the desires of their record label which is really driven by the bottom dollar like most enterprises in America, right?
Anyway, I've posted my disappointment with this band's new album before and I will again. It is not up to their quality work.
Why, because something maybe more "listenable" than previous releases, does that make a band a sell out. Thats what your saying aren't you? This is a very good Gomez disc. Listen closer it may just be your ears are not hearing the growth.
|Neil Finn - The Climber|
(Jun 29, 2006 - 05:23)
i love the guitar on this one. Dreamy; groovy. It reminds me of Rober Fripp, of King Crimson fame. Anyone know who the guitarist was?
By the way, the automagic link w. each song to amazon info is great. How about another automagic link to the clientele on the album that the song is from? Such a link would answer questions like mine above.

(Jun 23, 2006 - 12:46)
What is it with Radio Paradise and Talking Heads. I have to disconnect every time this band comes on cause it is just painful to listen; which is way too often cause you play them way too much. This is my only complaint against the station as a long time listener, but it is a big one!
Dude, do you have this saved as a macro and just plug it in evry time the Heads are on? Tisk tisk!!! Cause we get it...You don't like this band. But here's the thing...Other people do. Lots and lots of people. So get over it!!

|Porcupine Tree - Cloud Zero|
(Jun 23, 2006 - 10:45)
This isn't bad, but I must admit, it's the first PT track that hasn't wowed me immediately. This sounds like an odd mix of Tangerine Dream and Al DiMeola, perhaps touched with a little Ozric Tentacles. It's the first track that really doesn't have an original feel to it. Even the tracks of PT that seem to have an obvious Pink Floyd influence have tons more originality.
touched with a little Ozric Tentacles....LOL!!!! What a dork!!!

|Radiohead - The Tourist|
(Jun 22, 2006 - 13:09)
I've learned to accept the fact that people hate Radiohead, and not only the stupid ones. They are a polarizing sort of band, and I think this album is the magnet. The song itself is great, not the best on the album, but an excellent closer. I think Thom's voice is peachy, and if you want to criticise the high register he sings in, go ahead. I just believe he does it better than Bono, Martin, et. all.
Well put...and yet I still don't get this bands appeal

And blues is full of "blues" clichés. And reggae is full of "reggae" clichés. And jazz is full of "jazz" clichés. What's your point. Nothing is original. Like it or don't. You're not changing anyone's mind by pointing out that this has trance elements. Newsflash: the 12-bar blues is found in most 12-bar blues songs!
Ouch designergirl!!! No need to be so harsh!!!

|World Party - Love is Best|
(Jun 15, 2006 - 06:20)
This album was a massive dud. Probably the reason there was no US release for Dumbing Up.
Actually Dumbing Up was released in the states this year. One of the reason it was not released is Carl Wahlberg had a brain anuryism and could not tour in support. He's all better now and did a nice gig at the Jam on the River here in Philly. A great song writer and an album worthy fo RP play.

World Cafe from WXPN. Josh Ritter, Atypically Talented
May 23, 2006 · Josh Ritter's new release, The Animal Years, is the kind of folk album that should connect with a much larger audience, while also giving his faithful following something to celebrate.
And this is the set list:
"Girl in the War"
"Thin Blue Flame" (an extra super special treat)
