I was only halfway through the list before I was saying
"Oldie McOld".

Walking down the hall at work I just got hailed with "sir".

Grrr.

Isn't it, though? *admires*

Substance, do you think I would like any of the songs I don't know? I'm sure you can guess which those are. (Hint: It's not stuff like The Beastie Boys or KC.)

Nothing on the list is THAT grating or weird, maybe with the exception of Robert Wyatt, who is a loopy jazzy hippie paraplegic communist. I can see why a listener would get impatient with it. Nation of Ulysses were not especially melodious, but check out these lyrics:

I'm not talking about a Beatle's song
Written 100 years before I was born
They're all talking about the round and round
But who's got the real anti-parent culture sound?


Probably the most successful piece of art on the list discounting Mr. von Karajan covering that Beethoven dude is Shoot Out the Lights.

Substance McGravitas said...

Of course now that I think of it Shoot Out the Lights has an absolutely ear-gouging solo...

vacuumslayer said...

Who did that song originally? I had never heard it before. I like it. I didn't even mind the guitar solo, which I had to hear as soon as you said it was ear-gouging. Oh wait...I spoke too soon. Yes, there it is. Yeah...no. That's not great.

Well, anyway, I like the song. So I may get myself another version.

Unless, our enemies choose them


I saw Kool Moe Dee in Salinas, CA. He opened for Ice T.

I'm getting older too, as Stevie would say.

M. Bouffant said...

Old? There's nothing pre-1970 but Beatles, Beethoven & Kitten on the Keys there. Unless the B.S. track is an early one.

Of course, I still think of Wyatt as Soft Machine's drummer.

And Bad Company? Jesus fucking gawddam Jesus, YOU HAVE NEITHER TASTE, SHAME NOR A CAPACITY FOR EMBARRASSMENT, DO YOU???

For the sake of your immortal soul, I sincerely hope you didn't pay for that crap.

Shoot Out the Lights is a Richard Thompson song. He is a god.

Ha ha ha.

I guess I got confused because people in the YouTube comments kept talking about covers of the song and it made it sound as if his version were a cover too. That's what I get for reading YouTube comments.
