|Andrew Bird - Masterswarm|

|big Bird fan, but did not care for this song too much until I heard it live... that changes everything..! especially like the version from Live at the Precipice... great performance and rocks much harder.|
|Charlie Parker - Bloomdido|
(Jun 02, 2010 - 09:56)
|THAT'S what it's reminding me of..!! thanks! it was driving me crazy...|
Aha! When I hear this on MarketPlace it always catches my ear. It's nice to find out the musician and hear the whole thing. RP, you widen my musical knowledge every week!
|J.S. Bach - Toccata in D minor|
(May 26, 2010 - 09:32)
It's funny how this is associated with sinister things. I'm an atheist, but hearing this in a cathedral ls almost enough to make one get religion!
|Pink Martini - Hang On Little Tomato|
(May 17, 2010 - 15:35)
|heard this in a tiny jewelry shop in Paris in 2007. actually asked the owner about it. worth the writing of the song just to hear a Frenchman say "Hang on Little Tomato"... hilarious... man, that takes me back...|
|Poe - Wild|
(May 12, 2010 - 14:10)
|New Poe please. A whole album's worth preferably...|
|Red Hot Chili Peppers - Otherside|
(May 12, 2010 - 05:53)
|100% agree. Porcelain? that song was terrrrible.|
Sorry I hate to give bad reviews, remember buying CD and then giving it away I was not impressed then. Thinking back I should have burn't it. Just seems so soul less. More fun filling out a self assessment tax form.
|Pearl Jam - Indifference|
(Apr 23, 2010 - 06:42)
|i think you have that exactly backwards. yes, there is an inverse relationship between Vedder and Amos, but we need much less Amos and much more Vedder - that's how it goes.|
If more Tori Amos means less Eddie Vedder - then count me in!
|Cold War Kids - Audience|
(Apr 15, 2010 - 11:46)
|i wonder if this was written for the Army... you know, Army of One... Audience of One.. small concert. balanced...|
no? ah well. good song anyway.
|Tracy Bonham - I Was Born Without You|
(Apr 14, 2010 - 13:24)
|is it Radiohead? it's these lines: |
I walked these streets before I even knew your name
And since you've been with me they'll never look the same
it's driving me crazy! i should know this...
what does the pre-chorus sound like?!? something very familiar...
|Nada Surf - Happy Kid|
(Apr 14, 2010 - 11:10)
|that opening line is a real wart on an otherwise decent song.|
|Tori Amos - God|
(Apr 09, 2010 - 13:51)
|i hear that.|
|Ismael Lo - Khar|
(Apr 09, 2010 - 07:17)
|interesting... guitar part reminiscent of 'Water Jet Cilice/Self-Torture' by Andrew Bird. That would be a cool song to hear here... GREAT live.|
|Foo Fighters - Everlong (acoustic)|
(Apr 08, 2010 - 13:41)
|there's another acoustic version out there that's just Dave - it's REAL good. puts the song in a much different light.|
|The Knack - My Sharona|
(Apr 08, 2010 - 13:32)
|i could make such a cool music video for this song... ya know, if i had the financial backing and a complete disregard for the rest of my life.|
|Lou Reed - Walk on the Wild Side|
(Apr 08, 2010 - 07:13)
|Wilco has done that more recently, with Florida as well. Many states don't seem to lend themselves to 3 letter abbreviations... ORG? CAL? TXS? NYK? seems more like college radio call stations... i'm sure i'm off...|
How long has it been since we used last used anything other than the (now) standard two letter abbreviations for states?
|Lou Reed - Walk on the Wild Side|
(Apr 08, 2010 - 07:11)
|Same here. it's a constant source of pride and shame.|
can i kick it? yes you can
i have the dubious distinction of having Tribe Called Quest introduce me to this tune
|Joan Osborne - What You Are|
(Feb 22, 2010 - 07:52)
|'4' only because of the strength of Patty's songwriting. otherwise it would be much lower.|
|Led Zeppelin - Ramble On|
(Feb 17, 2010 - 13:30)
|i was actually talking about this the other day... it's funny how one of the most badass bands on the planet references Tolkien at will... and gets away with it, is revered even. can you imagine a band referencing 'the Rings' these days? they'd be laughed off the radio! don't get me wrong - i love the Tolkien books, and the movies were great... but it just doesn't occupy the same place in collective culture it did 40 years ago, thanks in large part to the Jackson movies and their ardent fans... |
"say what you will about Jesus, but leave the Rings out of this!"
|Pearl Jam - Given To Fly|
(Feb 08, 2010 - 12:17)
|the second guitar part behind |
"And he still gives his love, he just gives it away
The love he receives is the love that is saved"
|Empire Of The Sun - Country|
(Feb 08, 2010 - 08:54)
|"i learned the truth at 17, that love was meant for beauty queens..."|
anyone else hear that in the synth melody line? i do - and it blows it.
