Yep. And a little of In My Time of Dying. By the way, Jimmy Page called, he wants his guitar back.

Still hear this on the radio all the time.
How about some stuff from "2112" or "Farewell to Kings"?
That's true, also "Trees" from Hemispheres would fit in here pretty well I think.

|This was the album that woke me up to how good Steely Dan were. I happened to hear the whole album on WBCN in Boston one evening. Before that I just knew them by "Reeling in the Years" and "Rikki Don't Lose That Number". Then I went out and bought this and all their previous albums.|

OK, I know what you're up to - you're trying to get somebody to comment on how you use the same comment for a lot of songs on RP. Well, I won't fall into that trap, no sir not me.
|Squirrel Nut Zippers - Hell|

|Surprising to hear this here, not complaining but you should instead play some of his "deeper cuts" like Meadows, Welcome to the Club or Mother Says. Thanks to Clear Channel, RMW is forever burnt-out.|
|OSI - Once|
(Mar 08, 2007 - 09:59)
YEA! This is my song upload!
OSI is one of my favorite bands, very Porcupine Tree-ish (and Steve Wilson joined them for one song on their first album.
Thanks, cool to hear this on RP. (and don't forget who turned you on to them!)
|Chicago - I'm A Man|

Yes, and under-rated too. Love the song with Johnny Cash.

Sure seems like a lot of your music is "old people" music. Next time you don't like a song, just say that - OK ? Slagging those who like Yes by imposing your impression of the typical age of those who like to hear Yes is not a smart move. At least not here on RP.
Burn! (Hey I appreciate a good burn.) Yes emoticon --->
|Oasis - Champagne Supernova|
(Apr 09, 2006 - 12:17)
|Ok, so I'm a sucker for a good hook. The avg. rating should still be higher IMHO, this gets an 8, as does the album overall.
And yes I've heard all about what kind of idiots they are supposed to be.
|Pearl Jam - Black|
(Apr 05, 2006 - 11:56)
|Yes! I'm happy to see this rated at 8.2. It shows that most RP listeners really DO have good musical taste. This is one of, if not the best, rock album out of the 90s.|
|Crosby Stills Nash & Young - Country Girl |
(Apr 03, 2006 - 20:09)

|'til Tuesday - Coming Up Close|
(Mar 14, 2006 - 18:51)
|Still a favorite album after all this time. There was a magazine back then, if I recall correctly, named "Compact Disc Review" in which they rated this album, er CD, a perfect 10/10 (performance/sound quality).|
|Blues Traveler - Amber Awaits|
(Nov 05, 2005 - 00:56)
This music is really emberrassing. John Popper's stapled stomach affected his brain.
While your comment about his stomach and brain is probably accurate, you could at least spell "emberrassing" correctly before categorizing a song as such.

The second best slide guitarist who ever lived.
I could agree with that. And you probably have Duane Allman as #1 as he should, right?
|Rolling Stones - Sympathy for the Devil|
(May 13, 2005 - 12:57)
Who was on the keyboards for this one? An alltime fave.
That would be Nicky Hopkins. He also played for the Who, Rod Stewart, Steve Miller, and Jeff Beck among others. Was probably the most in-demand session piano player back then.
|Beck - E-Pro|
(Apr 11, 2005 - 15:02)
|You know, as this guy continues to progress, I compare him more and more with Todd Rundgren. Which, of course, is a compliment to Beck and hopefully not an insult to Todd.|
|Sarah McLachlan - Solsbury Hill|
(Oct 15, 2004 - 10:53)
|This must be the lowest average rated song at RP with this many votes, and it still isn't low enough! :puke: |
|Sting - Send Your Love|
(May 28, 2004 - 12:12)
|Ok, I have to chime in here. I'm not hating this like most of the folks here, but it's not my favorite Sting by a long measure. I agree with Pyro and don't agree with Zeke19. Also, although I agree overall with hcaudill, the comment about "3-chord garage rock" is an unfair representation of his work with the Police, which was definitely more innovative than most other popular music during that time period.
I think Sting is a huge talent, and so do many the world's finest session musicians who have played with him. BUT, IMHO his work since The Soul Cages has been somewhat disappointing, i.e. the last album of his I bought was Ten Sumoner's Tales and that CD didn't get very much rotation. His work just lacks something that it had on those first 3 excellent solo albums... a sense of urgency or importance? I not exactly sure but I hope he gets it back.
|Pat Metheny Group - Above The Treetops|
(May 21, 2004 - 09:25)
|Yes!!! A little more PM on RP would be cool. This is my favorite album from Metheny, and probably on my top 10 desert island list too. |
|Dar Williams - I Saw A Bird Fly Away|
(Mar 09, 2004 - 07:49)
|I haven't listened to RP in a few months, and after only 10 minutes of listening here comes one of those songs I have to mute everytime. This and a few too many other songs that just don't deserve the amount of rotation they get, are the reason I'm burnt out on RP after only a year of occasional (twice a week for a few hours) listening. Oh well looks like it's back to KFOG for now... :( |
|Cat Stevens - Angelsea|
(Jan 13, 2004 - 10:59)
|Wow, talk about a "deep cut". I haven't heard this since back in the day. And I didn't even own the album, my local radio station at the time WBCN in Boston used to play it. Great Job Bill!|
|The Who - Amazing Journey/Sparks|
(Oct 19, 2003 - 07:37)
What is that sampled sound in there? Sounds like Pete scraping a pick on a guitar string.
Not to get to technical but in 1969 there was no digital "sampling". That sound was created by a (primative by today's standards) analog synthesizer, probably a Moog.
|Velvet Underground - There She Goes Again|
(Sep 22, 2003 - 15:17)
Proving yet again that's it's about so much more than technical expertise.
Coincidence, I was just thinking of the Violent Femmes as a classic example of your premise. Then Bill was all over it with the follow-up.
|Folk Implosion - Pearl|
(Sep 22, 2003 - 13:42)
I hate to jump on this bandwagon...but there are certain songs that the more you hear them the more you like them (or, at least, the songs don't lose much appeal)....this is not one of those songs. 5...4...3...2...1. :?
I'm with you man, I took a break from RP last month (listening to KFOG) because of this exact thing. This song was getting overplayed enough back then that I started reaching for the mute button. Just turned on RP 30 minutes ago and mute already???
|Jimi Hendrix - Little Wing (live)|

|It's alright Kevin, that's one of the things that makes life interesting that not everyone likes the same thing. At least you weren't afraid to speak your mind.

(May 22, 2003 - 14:11)
|If the number and variety of comments made were directly proportional to a song's excellence, then this song is one of the greatest of all time! That said, the 5.9 rating is somewhat low, I gave it a 7-- mostly for the memory rush factor. :D|

(Dec 16, 2002 - 14:53)
|This is fine but, I think most people don't realize how good TFT were, especially the Seeds Of Love album. Bill, you need to play some cuts from that album that did not get airplay like "Swords And Knives".|
|The Alarm - Strength|
(Dec 06, 2002 - 12:38)
|Never grooved on these guys, I thought they were a U2 imitation or something. That said, this song is not that bad and has a little heart actually.|
