|Joe Bonamassa - Stones In My Passway|
(Sep 05, 2012 - 17:21)
|Man, some of you are so jaded. |
Have you seen the Joe Bonamassa's Royal Albert Hall concert on Palladia?
He's a fucking badass.
|Fleetwood Mac - Sara|
(Jan 10, 2012 - 03:37)
|Not the best song ever guys, I agree. |
But not too shabby at 5:30am, while I sip on coffee and try to snap out of it.
Nice job Bill!
|Eagles - Seven Bridges Road|
(Dec 29, 2011 - 10:44)
|I have to downvote this one to Hell. |
It has nothing to do with you guys, enjoy the song all you want, it just makes me think of this local cover band (yuppie attorneys) who try, and I emphasize the word "try" to perform this song live.
These guys are the biggest bunch of douches ever, trust me.
|Roy Orbison - In Dreams|

|Don't be a good neighbor to her. I'll send you a love letter straight from my heart, fucker!|
|The Beatles - And Your Bird Can Sing|
(Nov 02, 2011 - 17:18)
|I read that when Danny Gatton learned to play this song, he assumed it was only one guitar playing the lead riff. He was that awesome.|
|Yes - Long Distance Runaround & The Fish|
(Oct 30, 2011 - 20:20)
|I've had a lot of wine and a really good night over here, listening to RP while enjoying my backyard fire pit. I'll spare you the on...and on...Thank you for playing this song!|
|Air - Mer Du Japon|
(Aug 11, 2011 - 19:20)
|Love Air. Love 'em.|
Now may I suggest throwing some Air France into the mix?

remember: "You're not obliged to swallow anything you despise" This song does more for my spiritual hygiene than most in recent past. My 10's are usually reserved for things that I've loved for a long time, but this one makes the grade today. redtex wrote:
I come here to listen to music. If I want to read the lyrics I'll head for the library.
I stuck through the entire song (again) and still not getting it. But I will suffer the few flaws of the playlist as the positives of RP far outweigh the negatives.
I agree with you ellenaut, this song is helping me get motivated to leave a really, really bad job.
|Chris Whitley - Big Sky Country|
(Aug 22, 2008 - 11:05)
|I saw Whitley near the end, at a place called the Blue Door in Oklahoma City. |
It's the kind of place where you can byob and is extremely intimate.
So me and a bud were hanging around outside before the show and Whitley walked right up and bummed a smoke.

I like this tune too, duh.
The bass line if almost identical, just saying.
|Devo - Beautiful World|
(Jul 24, 2008 - 14:47)
|This is actually how I feel sometimes when shopping in Target and see all the plastic suburban wives, they all look the same! |
And I realize, it's a beautiful world for them, not me.
Then I remember to take my meds.

Look up the definition of ''race'' and ''racist'' in your dictionary. Note that a dictionary is not fictionary, though you might find it frictionary. which could cause you to become fractionary.
Maybe I should have said, ''multiracist b*st*rd!'' since Canada is such a melting pot.
Just teasing anyway.
I like Canada.
|Ali Farka Toure & Ry Cooder - Soukora|
(Jul 18, 2008 - 11:07)
|According to the liner notes, that's Ry Cooder playing a beautiful solo on a "toy guitar."
Reason number infinity why Cooder is the man.
|Sufjan Stevens - Casimir Pulaski Day|
(Jul 17, 2008 - 13:42)
|I almost bought one of those Dean Backwoods 6 string banjos (tuned like a guitar) because of this song. But I played one and realized it sucked and would be kind of a silly thing to own.
Sufjan however, does not suck.
RP should play John Wayne Gacy, that would make for some interesting comments.
|R.E.M. - Fall On Me|
(Jul 17, 2008 - 11:46)
|This was my favorite song on my favorite album as a new college freshman.
|Mick Jagger - Wandering Spirit|
(Jul 17, 2008 - 09:05)
|I dig Keef's solo stuff too, but I agree that some guidance from Mick wouldn't have hurt.
This discussion reminds me of Brian May's solo efforts, he could have used the guidance of Roger and Freddie in some areas - take "Cyborg" or "China Belle" for example.
It's good to hear these guys expressing themselves outside the norm.
|Stevie Ray Vaughan - Texas Flood|
(Jul 15, 2008 - 09:30)
|I don't think any other player felt it more than Vaughan, watch the Austin City Limits videos (especially pre-sobriety) and you'll see what I mean.
|Toni Price - Comes Love|

Comes a bad song...
You can shut your speakers off...

|David Bowie - Life on Mars?|
(Jul 10, 2008 - 15:18)
Gotta love the Portugese version in The Life Aquatic!
If you haven't yet, you gotta buy that soundtrack.
|Steve Stevens - Sadhana|
(Jul 10, 2008 - 14:01)
|I read that Stevens laid down his electric guitar, all the pedals and played only flamenco style for a long period.
He also recorded and produced all of his "Flamenco A Go Go" album, writing all the music and playing nearly every instrument.
The man can play.
|Neil Young - Powderfinger|
(Jul 10, 2008 - 11:52)
|Attacking the guitar you say?
How he doesn't break every string when he engages the bigsby amazes me.
|The Kinks - Sunny Afternoon|
(Jul 08, 2008 - 08:21)
Ah yes, "tales of drunkenness and cruelty ...." Well, I did the drunkenness bit but never cruel ... women are too wonderful to be cruel to them!
Might I take a hit from your pipe my man?
|Bob Dylan - Subterranean Homesick Blues|
(Jul 07, 2008 - 11:57)
|There are so many everyday references from this song.
For instance, I stopped at my neighborhood 7-11 the other day, but couldn't put air in my tires because some low-level criminal had nicked the nozzle apparatus - simply cut it off the hose! This song immediately came to mind.
|Fleet Foxes - Mykonos|
(Jul 07, 2008 - 11:11)
These guys are kinda derivative --- I for sure hear MMJ and CSN --- but so far I've been giving them good ratings.
When I listen to the new release, I hear Simon and Garfunkel in there too, which is a good thing.
|Fleet Foxes - White Winter Hymnal|
(Jun 30, 2008 - 08:23)
One large step in that direction would be to hire a real producer and throw out the reverb...
I read that they recorded in a home studio, so yeah they would benefit from some outside expertise.
|The Smiths - What Difference Does It Make?|
(Jun 27, 2008 - 14:08)
|C'mon, don't you at least find Morrissey's pomposity amusing?
The way he's always singing about being "ill" or "sickened" and describing things as "vulgar" and "vile" cracks me up.
|Depeche Mode - Dream On|
(Jun 27, 2008 - 07:24)
|Alex Kapranos from Franz Ferdinand sounds a bit like Dave Gahan.
I'm just noticing that.
|Bob Marley - Exodus|
(Jun 25, 2008 - 15:22)
|While I agree, Marley is pretty overexposed, this song really hits the spot today, as I sit here, working late at the job I want to quit. |
|Death Cab For Cutie - Cath|
(Jun 25, 2008 - 15:02)
I think they peaked on Plans.
My favorite too.
I'm giving this record a chance, but I'm not cheering yet.
|David Bowie - Ashes to Ashes|
(Jun 18, 2008 - 05:42)
|Love this song!
Interestingly, I also love "Stay Loose" by Belle and Sebastian.
|Neil Young - One of These Days|
(Jun 17, 2008 - 12:02)
hahahaa...funny how the Dylan haters are more likely than not to be the Neil haters.
Me...I LOVE 'EM BOTH!
|Violent Femmes - Gone Daddy Gone|
(Jun 12, 2008 - 11:38)
I was trying to share this with my 8 year old the other week.
dmn you Jetsons, where's my jetpack?
Reintroduction to cartoons that even I'm too young to have known the originals is a great bonding experience.
However, I may have forever warped him with the Ren & Stimpy dvd set.
Ha, just kidding.
Hey, this is a really fun record.
|Josh Rouse - Sunshine|
(Jun 12, 2008 - 07:22)
|Rouse could sing me the phone book.
I love Nashville too.
|Cranberries - Linger|

i'm in heaven when i hear this song
Right there with you!
