"favorite song" Discussed on Netflix is A Daily Joke
"Now I am a tomboy. There's certain things I like that are kind of girly though, like my music. I love love songs. And one of my favorite love songs has been ruined by a commercial. It's the abused puppy commercial from Sarah McLachlan. Do those commercials have to be 30 hours long? And they're always in the middle of the funniest thing you're watching. You guys, those commercials have ruined that Sarah McLachlan song for me. A couple months ago, I was taking a shower. I had my iPod on shuffle, loving life, killing it. Listening to ace of base aside, like nailing it, right? I saw the sign. Hell yeah. End of song, boom, shuffle. Any of these. Angels. It became the most depressing shower I've ever had. I was watching myself with my own dear. Love you. Watch Chris Stella Alonso, lower classy. Only on Netflix..
U.S. Wholesale Inflation Rose a Record 8.6 Percent Over the Past Year
"Remember the narrative about inflation when we first started when we first started to see prices creeping up What was the narrative first Jim Inflation's not real you're conservative media hosts You're all a bunch of bad things It's all nonsense And then the narrative was as prices started to become more widespread and their increases became noticeable All right there may be inflation but it's really not that big of a deal And then the third narrative was okay it's a big deal now inflation but don't worry it's transitory It'll go away And now that the numbers came out annualized inflation up 8.6% a number we haven't seen in decades now all of a sudden the new narrative is not only these inflation not transitory not only is it likely here to stay for a while but don't worry it's actually a good thing Come on they didn't do that No they did Here is an actual headline by MSNBC James saros wiki forgive me if I'm saying your name wrong it's not intentional How COVID became the unlikely hero of our inflation crisis And the sub had line makes you really wanna laugh where they play it down and insist don't worry This is a good thing inflation because the government printed a lot of money and gave it to people to spend So it doesn't really matter that you have nothing to buy and there's a supply chain crisis What matters is you have a lot of paper in digital money to spend on things you can't actually buy That's what matters That's an actual piece in MSNBC by the way Now for people who don't think inflation is a problem in that just printing people are printing four people money and giving it to them even though they can't buy products because we don't have them And don't understand how the productivity side of an economy is the important side Right folks it's not the demand side You can demand whatever you want Tom Hanks and Wilson and cast away when they get caught on that island by themselves demanded a lot They probably demand that a steak dinner They probably demanded access to a movie library The man that access to their old favorite songs but Tom Hanks was caught on an island where he had a lot of FedEx boxes full of a lot of stuff he couldn't use and he didn't demand So he had a lot of things he could trade but he had nobody to trade them with because no one was producing anything he demanded Having a bunch of money to go out and buy stuff that doesn't exist is
Iron Maiden Find Eastern Muse
"This is iron maiden the new album is called. Sent jitsu this is the song days of future past and here to talk about what is An absolutely epic album from iron maiden his npr music. Lar- scotch which. I have two full disclosure. I was listening to iron maiden maybe forty years ago and they've been together longer than that you know and if you told me we'd still be talking about new music from them this far along. I probably wouldn't have believed that like you said. Listen to that rift guitars on this. The songs their vision. Everything i think our i. It's just all fully intact seventeenth album in forty six years from one of the greatest heavy metal bands full time. That's not hyperbole. it's a fact. Album is ten tracks over eighty two minutes so it is long and at times help lead but this has been iron maidens mode lately these grand sweeping epochs that tell these larger than life stories are made may arenas but their music lightly has been more tailored to concert halls. Most of these songs are like eight ten minutes long. Each vase sprawl had many movements. I can. I can imagine like quite a stage. Production for whenever iron maiden contura gone. They do use a lotta runway to get these songs going but but it works. So i think it's still pulls you along. I never found myself feeling tired or like the sound was getting tired. And there's also an assist something has been doing a little bit more lately but there's also a little bit nostalgia. My favorite song written here by the basis. Steve harris is called the parchment. But it's a song that gnaws to the egyptian themes of iron mates nineteen eighty four album power slave. So that's like a nice. It's a nice little easter egg for iron maiden fans and also kind of ties into kind of like a broader idea about iron maiden that history mythology and religion have always played the matic roles in their

Finding Refuge in God, Psalm 16:1
"I'm chapter sixteen verse one preserve me. Oh god for in you. I take refuge so psalm. Sixteen is one of my favorite songs. I feel like it meditate on every single one of these words. Together with you i pray. According to them. I love psalms ecksteen just every single word but i just wanna let verse one. Do the work for the next couple. Minutes in our hearts preserve me. Oh god preserve me. Oh god what a career in a world of sin and suffering and death in a world of trials and temptations a world of different struggles in a world where. We often feel weary.

The Music of World Showcase in EPCOT
"If i say the music of epcot what's the first song that comes to mind. Probably something from future world and as we covered extensively back on show six nine six ten future world has background scores and attraction and so show themes that not only. I think resonate with us but are enjoyed by us beyond just our time in the parks. They are on our playlists and in our ears when we drive run exercise. I'm obviously like reaching and assuming those last two or whether we're just relaxing at home but why which is my favorite word. And i think it's probably because so. Many of these songs were created by disney for disney they are original themes built around the theme using the time-tested recipe of what makes disney music so memorable but for the other half of the world. Showcase much of the music is not only traditional but helps to set the stage and represents the culture of the participating nation. And these aren't songs. I think that we would normally associate with a theme park experience. Either that is like if we're talking about walt disney world But some of my favorite songs. That dizzy songs are found in many of these background. Loops of not just future world. But some of these world showcase pavilions and they always seem to bring a smile to my face as they hear them. Whenever or wherever i am and i said on the intro to the epcot show that that the music is very much a melting pot of so many cultures ideas ideals technology and different flavors. And it's a place that you can hear music that is as diverse as the pavilions and cultures and speaking of diverse. I want to continue our musical journey from future world to world showcase once again with friends who helped kick off this musical odyssey so i'd like to welcome back to the show. Lisa denote glasner from the castle. Run and core memory candles dot com to be back. Jason connect from here with the magic and the after our show on the facebooks. Hello it's good to be back with you guys and the one and only zac brown from the one and only the zac brown show. Everybody excited to be here. So i am excited for this. And i'm curious to one because i want to see if hopefully we can beat or not break record long. Our future world discussion was. But i think and i'm curious because we don't talk about this ahead of time how this may differ. Because i think again so many of those future world songs and themes are ones that we can mention by name. Papillon came up again. I think exactly you know if it was a drinking game and papillon was your word. You're in some serious trouble but so much of world showcases different because one. We can't pronounce many of the names the songs they don't necessarily roll off the tongue and they're not one that we might necessarily know by name but we know in terms of how they make us feel and they are there are some pavilions that have themes or some that. Just have background music that we enjoy very quickly. When and they'll round in the same order. When you think of world showcase when you think of world showcase music what is the first song idea pavilion. Thought that comes into your mind for me. I remember when we sat down to do or when was sitting down to prep for the future world. Show i joked that. I've never felt so prepared and so unprepared at the same time for a topic because it was like it was a topic. That's just sort of ingrained in my soul but at the same time i didn't know quite how i was going to articulate it and This show said hold by juice because like the rest of disney right is supposed to sort of insulate you from the rest of the world and i think the unique thing about showcases that it has the opposite job. It's supposed to transport you into the rest of the world. And so while you know so much of the music throughout disneyworld otherwise as supposed to sort of encapsulate you and bring you into this place. You know. the imaginary kind of didn't do their job right right if they did. If that's the result of in world showcase because the point of showcases to make you feel like you're not in central florida. It's supposed to make you feel like you're traveling around the world. As you're walking around world showcase so i don't know if i have a quick good answer to like what song first comes to mind. it i mean i could say something. Easy like golden dream of course. Which is you know sure. We'll talk about that more But now i think it's it's like background stuff. Like le vian rose and like the stuff that green and like that. The the the music that i just associate. Because i'm here. So much with walking around world showcase but at the same time you know like you said in the intro. It's not necessarily music that you're supposed to associate with a theme park. Don't you have a green sleeve. The greens leave story to which will have to get to. Because i remembered crossing the bridge an international gateway with you and i said isn't the screen sleeves using it yet and then you told me a story from your childhood is i am. I am right. I mean who doesn't have a green sleeve story like there's a green sleeve story and i want to don't jump ahead of ourselves but that really from my childhood i whistle. Inslee leaves all the time and it makes my mother crazy. Maybe i was just hoping it was from your childhood. Okay i i mean to answer the question. What's the first song pavilion jumps to mind. It's gotta be mexico and it's got to be the three cobb heroes right like that's got to be no actually. It's not that i think. The the for me world showcase had an anthem and no it can't be eliminations but it had an anthem. It would be basically the soundtrack to impress his france. Of course which. I am super excited about francine far away i know he s- t and wonderful. We'll get there For me it's kind of an unfair answer. I think about the international gateway. It's kind of this. Great little collaboration of everything that you're going to experience it's kind of the coming attractions. You know like lisa said you've got le vian rose and you've got a little bit of music piping in from like the china pavilion and everything just kind of blends and it just sets the overall tone and of prepares you for the pallet. That is in front of you whether it be musical or food you kind of preps you and gets you in the mindset that is world showcase and for me you know if i was to close my eyes and just say world showcases a couple of songs that jumped right to the top but one of them and this is actually a great way for us to begin. I think is. There is a world showcase background loop and being disney enthusiasts that you are. I'm pretty sure. It exists on your iphone or ipod your spotify playlist because this is one of the ones that i think people do have an play when their home or even in their cars or when they're working or walking or just relaxing and while you might not necessarily know the names of the songs if you were to listen through it and serbia following along this. This item list of the music yelich like. Yes inca dance by cousteau. That's my favorite song. Although you wouldn't walk into sam goody's not that there's a sam goodies but go with me here. You wouldn't walk in goodies and say i need incan dance on forty five guys have that. But i love the world showcase loop that you can hear on both entrances to where you could. We'll talk about some of the changes that came about relatively recently but those are some of the songs that i hear that like the future world entrance mentally

Taylor Swift's Re-Recorded Fearless Album Has 6 New Songs
"Taylor. Finally getting revenge on scooter braun. Absolutely i love it because it's her masters you know and when you're young or when you're excited you sign onto a record label and you don't even think about everything else. Happy to get it. Yeah you're so happy to get it. So i'm excited for her her new album and the new songs that are on there. I think our fans are going to support her and the everyone's going to buy it. I think you're right. Her fans are gonna supporter. I just don't this is really about revenge at this point. I think this is more about making a statement making a stand for artists out there to own their own masters. But i've said this time and time again. I don't think that she needs to be thinking about. This is me versus scooter. Scooter made a business deal that anybody would have made had. They had the capital and the chance for it to be brought to the table. I think she needs to rearrange in and and stop thinking in that manner if she is because we know what happened last time. She got an a few of ninety. We ended up with the whole snake gate and it was crazy and it didn't really turn out very well for her but i read. This is the best way to do revenge like you said i think her you're right though. Her message is for future artists. Who do what you can to try to own your your own songs. It is challenging for an upcoming artists because the label feels. They're taking a risk on you and so they they really fight to own that they're putting money into your marketing budget to your studio time to all of things and it takes a song. I don't remember the exact math but like a song has to be number one for so many weeks for you to really make any kind of money on it at all. I mean as you guys all know. Artists make most of their money off touring and the rights. So another reason why she's probably doing this too is for all the future times that movies or commercials or whoever wants to use her music. She gets the credit for. I don't know if i would want the thirty year old taylor swift singing about fourteen year old things. I think i'm going to want the original. I'm going to want the fourteen year old taylor. Her voice change. Her body has changed. Everything about that. Time has changed the music chain. It even better now. You have grown woman singer. That's kind of scary. I think this is going to be huge for her. I think it's the maybe the old songs aren't going to give them that much recognition but the six new songs. It's gonna be a whole new money pop. The did make it to the first album. Probably risi nine or instagram. She says because she didn't want to many slow songs or too many sad songs. Or you know those reasons why you cut songs and you put together an album the way that you do you know you don't wanna bunch of slow tempo songs. You don't want all fast tempo songs. You wanna have a variety show your range and you can only fit so many on an album. Release back in the day now. Things are looking a little bit differently. So i think and she that was like some of my favorite song writing for her was back in the waiting for this. I really think i'm excited about up waiting. Don't you want to hear the woman saying before. I mean i'll listen to it. I think it's gonna be great. I just think we need to lower our expectations. I remember when this album came out in two thousand and six. It was not only the bob. It went diamond like for album to go diamond into one. E twenty is almost impossible. Because i think it is a little bit of revenge. The little bit of. I'm gonna show you. It's a little bit. Let me show the other artists. I get what you're saying. It was definitely a business deal and a business move for him. But she's like you know what. I what my masters you gotta understand. When michael jackson bought the beatles masters. Can you imagine the beatles a lot really for my business move. That was gangster. You can't be mad at somebody if we're coming to the table with money to buy something like it wasn't his fault and i stick with that but i understand where she's coming from. I just think when you get wrapped up in revenge and one upping somebody. You often get your expectations kinda deflated. Because it doesn't go as
interview With Chad Lawson
"Chad. It's really great to be here with you on tangled today. Thanks for being with us. Thank you so much patricia. Really appreciate that. Yeah so. I had the opportunity while i was preparing for this interview to listen to your music and i have to say oh my god. It is so beautiful. I've been listening to it for the last couple of days in the background when i wake up in the morning and i'm just so happy to be introduced to it. That means a lot. it really does. It's so beautiful. And i was telling somebody about it last night and we started talking about the difference between music with lyrics that inspires you and instrumental music like yours. Which is piano that you actually feel physically emotionally moved by it and i am wanna know more about you and your background and what inspired you to first of all. Choose the piano and second of all create this kind of music. Thank you very much. Those words are not lost on me when i was five years old. Who are talking about four years ago. There used to be a show television coach. Sean and so shot an hour's like ado band that had a television show and so each week as a family we would sit around and we would watch sean naylor. I wasn't raised in a musical environments. Why parents didn't play an instrument. My brother management with one thing that i think it was a simple fund attainment and there is a guy doing something on one of the instruments and he was having the time of his life. It was unbelievable. It means his smile is so infectious. And i just remember at the age of five. I remember looking like i want to do that. He's just having the time of life. That's what i want to do. Fast forward a little bit. My parents rented a piano goes. Who's gonna believe a five year old. And i started taking lessons dan and forty years later. I'm still taking piano lessons. I will until my fingers longer move. God forbid or i'm in the ground so there's something about always wanting to explore and go further with your craft and that excites me. So i was very traditional first class concerned Did the classical thing. Then i did start exploring different types of music. Not just classical and i really got into jazz heavily and the thing that i love so much about being brought up with jazz and classical as there's one key thing and you hit the nail on the head and the introduction a second ago and that's malady you have to have a song bird and music you have to have. That's why people love lyrics much because that's a somber something that they can seeing when they're not with radio so those lyric sages get into your ear also may find the way into your heart and your just. That's why were so moved by. Music is because of the melody the Together and i think what's so fascinated by instrumental. Music is when you remove that lyrical contents. You still have the melody. But at that point you're allowing the listener to create their own there. Because it's so interesting. Like with each song that i do. I try not to over exaggerate. When i'm speaking to people about what the pieces about because a lot of times what i found is it may be completely different. Who are the listener and it could be two different listeners. Naked hear the same song naked. Say well. I was envisioning this or i was envisioning this a lot of music. Particularly your favorite songs you have to go back and say why is that my fears and lot you look at it and you say i was going through this season in my life. This is a song that i i met someone with. And so that song is this. really mitt. Lot emotionally relational. And so i think the court part of music that i've always been drawn to in this. Forty years of studying is melody. How can you craft something that really. Just dials into the heart of the listener. And then you bring them to that point and you allow them to carry on from there. They pick up that torch if you will and take with them. Through whatever life situations they're experiencing. Yeah it reminds me of how i feel when we're look at a piece of art. We don't really know the intention of the artists necessarily but it holds certain meaning for us. And i wanted to ask you so you have this beautifully meaningful music and you seem to be from what i've ascertained so far deeply passionate about mezei shen. When did that start in your life. When did you begin to meditate. Why did you gravitate towards meditation. And then how did that intersect with your music. Love it thank you a number of years ago. Let's say run ten or so. I began to have some health issues. And so i found a chinese reflexologist who just completely turned my world upside down and the best of ways and at that point it was a very simple thing i walk and his. Oh it's this. let's fix your chee. And he did. I was sick. Great what it's two parts. At that point. I really became very interested in holistic food in the holistic lifestyle. Where does that fall in place. And how is it that were not made aware of it at least here in the states so there was a balance i mean i have grown up in church since i was knee high and so there that area of prayer that has always been part of my life but i knew that there are parts as well as it specifically when she starts speaking about your wellness your overall health until i knew that there was a marriage somewhere in between
Which are the best songs on Bruce Springsteen's Greatest Hits?
"So there are eighteen songs on greatest hits cd you want to just go through them in order and then you talk about whether you think it's a good song or not and then you said you have some addition a better not on this list that i would include. Yes looking at number one born to run. Obviously that's a first ballot right. Everybody acknowledges that went when you think of for springsteen and the music videos era. This one didn't have like one of those choreographed music videos but it was one of those concert video and i will say there's things about music are especially likable to me. I'm a big sent guy which doesn't use a lot of sense except for dancing in the dark has a lot of it which is probably why. It's one of my favorite songs his. I'm big on piano. And i'm big on horns. So born and ryan has a big horn section of the great clarence clemenceau. Yeah we're gonna run became on the radio. I wouldn't immediately change it. I bled it at least get through a couple of seconds before i said okay. I've had enough of that even before this recent awakening you would have said. Oh yeah. I knew the song. It would've been one of the five that i would given you as an original bruce springsteen number next to read thunder road is a song that resp- eurest adore. But i don't know if it says big and the general population. What do you think i. I had not really been familiar with the song until after we had our discussions. Yeah i do remember it coming on like radio back. In the olden days on classic rock and the ad like that it would get played every once in a while. But i never really paid attention to it. So once we started having our bruce discussions as you force fit it into how many episodes yes i did. Listen to it a little bit more. And i it kind of fits into the born to run that. That's one of the things about bruce springsteen that i don't like yeah he has acdc syndrome okay. We're a lot of his song. Sound almost exactly the same guy now. The musical arrangements don't necessarily sound that way. They will usually have some kind of piano. They will usually have some kind of porn section. For which is which i like. Yeah but you know what it is. It's his voice. His voice brings the band but only in certain songs. There's some songs for. He's entirely understandable. And then there's other times where it's nonstop own. He's basically doing fake. Bruce springsteen from the ben stiller show which was a great show by the way won't be wing. Linda would agree with you that his i don't understand what he say and he has said. It's like a hard mumble that somebody is doing while they're on the toilet trying to push one out. That is that he asked him to make. I've just lost my not necessarily that. That's always a bad thing. Don't forget all of the music surrounding the horrible. Singing is enjoyable. One of the questions. I ask in every week. Bruce does mary get in the car. So have you listened to the song enough to answer that question. I would need to actually read the lyrics because they are so unintelligible so near basically telling me that it's a song about people running away. Yeah and there at the end of it. There's a decision to be made or the girlfriend is deciding. She's going to run away. With bruce right kind of like you know the end of inception when the puppets that's exactly what it is so was that a yea or nay. Oh thunder road. Yeah when we go through this list. There's going to be very few that i would say. Don't count okay. not necessarily that. I think they're great song. But they are acknowledged consensus hits among just a masses. When i listened to that song it's so similar to born to run. I almost have a hard time separating. They almost feel like one really long song. And they're both from the same album and i think that was the theme. He was going through all right badlands. I like that one. I want to be rich for. Expend king teen is a sci-fi till he rules again another one that has really difficult lurks to understand. But i love the dignity. Ding ding ding again piano. I love really hard said piano music. Which is why. Even though bruce hornsby only has like three they are in great. Three one of the things that bruce wanted from the beginning and he still does is. He has a piano player and a keyboard player onstage with him. So you have the view cynth- and piano yes classical piano. That's that's really good combines. Both things that are really enjoy music. If you can get them both going at the same time. I like giant mashes of different kinds of sounds which is one of the reasons why i was drawn to wrap so much because rap samples so many different things at once inside a one song to a lot of people that would just sound like noise and are just a mess. I me i don't know how my brain processes things. But i love that kind of chaos within a song jokin. Good one of the other things as a sports fan when he does. Badlands live the fans. They start chanting almost like if you're in a soccer match so the river was a big hit. Yes buying knowledge that one. Although it's an extremely long song difficult to get all the way through depressing yes it. A lot of these songs are about people down on their luck yet. Town is closing the mill down. And i don't know if we're going to survive as a couple all you know. Is it time to budd dwyer off ourselves or should we go somewhere else. Yeah they all have that similar. Theme jon stewart. Talked about it that. When you listen to bruce springsteen you're no longer just the loser loser in an epic tale. Brian one of my favorite stories about the river. Think of his at the national show and someone held up a sign. Saying it's my nineteenth birthday. Will you play the river. And there's the line for my nineteenth birthday got a union card and a wedding coat. Burma i gotta union. And we're going do not ever heard the song just because adventures birthday. This is not a song. You play to celebrate Any and he was gonna play it anyway right every concert. There's a certain group of songs the river. Wow really yeah. I would think if you're going to pay that much money to go. See bruce springsteen he would understand okay. There is at least ten or fifteen off of my greatest hits that i know i need to give to the masses or else they are gonna revolt. Always do hide the fans. Think of that like Like if you go to springsteen concert and he doesn't do born to run. Do you feel disappointed. You've been like thirty concerts. So would know sam lison one of our poker buddies and one of our friends our podcast. He would gladly give a born to run to hear a different song. And my point is every show is someone's first show. And if you go to your first. Bruce springsteen show and he does it do born to rhyme. You're going to go. What the hell.

You'll find your haga made lagana at number seven on. Npr music's list of the fifty best of twenty twenty then in may bad bunny put out an odds and ends compilation called los que. No iban asa lear or the ones that were not going to come out. And now he's released ultimo tour del mundo which translates as the last tour of the world. The new album was written and recorded in quarantine and bad bunny had said it would be his last album not surprisingly he has already walked. That back a stephanie. Near the beginning of this year you interview. Bad bunny for a pitchfork profile called day in the life of bad bunny introverted superstar. Let's start with your thoughts on the new record which feels more restrained and reflective than the album. He put out earlier this year. Absolutely well let me start by saying that. It's been a crazy year for bad bunny. Output has been insane and prolific. and he's proven more than once that he can put out a great record. I really liked this album But i'll confess that i i i. I felt some fatigue at the fact that this is the third bad album coming out. And i'm a big fan of bad bunnies. I've been following him for a long time now. But i also believe that there's time for an artist to slow down into you don't need to put out so much music that being said. I really liked this album. It's really grown on me. Since i first heard it definitely appeals to the mo and may clearly bad bunny has also been listening to a lot of new metal and pop punk in quarantine. Well let's talk about the differences between this record and the one that he put out at the beginning of this year. That was kind of a more hard charging album in this one. As you said is is a little bit more mo absolutely. I think you know there has been this temptation to compare the two albums because they've been his two biggest releases. This year i think at the end of the day. they're such different projects. He was really trying such different things with them. That album iago looking at it. I was really focused on going back to the heart of puerto rican thrown from the early two thousands in the late nineties. The kind of music that bad listen to growing up the latin pop landscape now sounds a lot different than the music. Bad bunny loved growing up. And you know john that has historically not been widely accepted in latin pop and latin mainstream until the last decade. And one thing that he acknowledged to me when i interviewed him as well as you know something that was really the main focus of this record. Was you know undeniably making this sound of the music that influenced him growing up the artists that really deserve the shine when it comes to the strides made in this genre and this album is more about honoring a different kind of music that he loved growing up which is rock and rock and program spaniel and pop punk and i think what you really can see across. His body of work is just the deep respect that he has different kinds of music that he loves as well as this nostalgia. I think both records really have a lot to do with nostalgia in this way. That's really interesting to me especially in a year. That's been so difficult for so many people. Some many of us are finding comfort in music. That's not new music. That reminds us of more comfortable more simple times as it were. Even though these two albums are really different they both have really special offerings. Well one thing. I wanted to talk about it about this new record wanting that immediately jumped out to me as somebody who did a certain amount of coming of age in the nineties there a couple of songs on his record like to deseo loma harder. And you'll vito c. That are very tinged with all rock. Sounds like really kind of nineties. Rock sounds taught me talk. Yeah you know. This album has a lot of guitars. Sad guitars brad guitar. He's kind of teasing out this kind of pop punk and nu metal side that he has actually alluded to in previous work on his debut album sandra he had a song called dynamo moscow allowed which was really a pop punk song and people were so surprised to hear that from bad bunny and on your looking like he had llamas mignano which is like one of my favorite songs this year and a that just absolutely bursts into this new metal rage moment that is just so so registered so good and i think you know i i. I didn't think anything could match with those two songs. Made me feel. But i couldn't stop listening to to the settled on my heart. I really think it's like that. Riff is just so heart. Sick and tortured and cathartic. It's a little bit of that success. Mada below gun mental burden sep putra dot com the company. I think you can kind of get a sense of the exact angst. That's at work here but can you walk us through what that's about. Yeah you know. That song is kind of a classic reflecting on a break-up ballot and it's kind of a self torturing acknowledges wasn't great to you and i hope that one day you can forget about me but it's also just really indulging in that feeling and i think that's something that somebody people can relate to maybe a lot of people who've spent a lot of time alone in this year of in thinking about so. It's got a lot of sad. Bob's for reflecting on on these sad moments but also got a lot of really happy moments. I wanted be just kind of give people a sense of place about where he kind of fits into the latin music world like he is a boundary pushing artist. He's pushed a lot of these of gender presentation He sings about gender relations in ways. That feel really fresh absolutely. I think you know for several years now. Bad bunnies kind of establish this reputation for himself as a political or outspoken artist. And it's a label that he wrestles with. I think he is breaking a lot of barriers in terms of challenging masculine in latin pop. And he's really kind of an outlier. In terms of how vocal he is about these issues in two thousand nine hundred and he was really involved in the protests import. The frigo demanding the resignation of prepared for ceo in the past. He's also really challenge these ideas of gender presentation as you mentioned. You know he'd paint his nails and he'd wear skirts and bad. Bunny received a lot of praise for that and it was a big statement to a lot of his fans as much as he's gaining so much praise especially this year he's also had a lot of moments of public learning you know he's resisted this idea of becoming like a spokesperson for any group of people or report the frigo and earlier this year. You know a lot of fans were disappointed that he took several weeks to respond in support to the black lives matter movement and eventually he released a letter expressing his feelings and kind of saying himself. The thing that so many of us had already come to the conclusion to which is that. You know you can't rely on celebrities at the end of the day to lead us forward and social movements to be the voice of progress. I think bad bunny has made a lot of big statements that challenge how latin pop's most visible stars approach politics but then again on and trap have always been political and bad bunny is not the first and i know he won't be the last. Yeah you mentioned. His relationship with puerto rico. I think that's one thing that really jumps out about him. Could you talk a little bit more about that. Absolutely i think what definitely sets bad bunny. Apart from all of his peers in the industry is just how committed he is doing right by his community and worked to recall. Specifically i think in all of his music you can tell that. He's striving to remain authentic. And there's so many little love letters to community on this album samples the legendary astrologer welton on the penultimate track. His famous sendoff muccio more. He shouts out puerto rican and latino legends in general like leveaux the ruben blah the song and then latinos like real manna. You can tell that. He's he's aware that he's operating within a lineage. He never leaves any doubt about who he's trying to uplift and who is trying to represent here and he closes the album on a classic puerto rican christmas song comparison performed by today obama hegna which is a group from his hometown of vega baja. Your old it's kind of odd. Because it's like he's not on the song. Obviously it's recording from the fifties. But it's a song about how some people have jubilant joyful christmases and others spend it in sadness or in poverty. It is a farewell to a year. That i think all of us are happy to see go and i think you know though. He sits at this place of enormous wealth and privilege and fame. I think he's really at the end of the day driven by this desire to remain

Taylor Swift Decoded
"Taylor swift strikes again, dropping another love song about her British Super Hop boyfriend at least that's what her fans think. The bonus track on her new album is called the lakes and brace yourselves you guys she's referencing England's largest natural lake. Doors windermere pigs like perfect as to why I'm said. But NOT WITH THEM All right typical Taylor fashion hidden messages. Are we sick of them? DO WE CARE? How do we feel about it? I'm personally sick of them. I'm not a Taylor. Feel like her fans.

So I'm talking about Taylor Swift now. Under let's. I do think Taylor is very talented than I have to say I really do allowed I do love her other music this album I haven't really gotten into, but I think that's just the puking I'm not against it. I'm not saying I'm not saying that Taylor swift isn't good because I do think that she is very talented I just think it's funny that because it's in black and white all of a sudden now hunter is the Taylor swift this historian because he thinks.

Apple Music launching shows - Hits and Country
"Apple music added two new stations right apple music hits. And Apple Music country. no hip hop. Lame. No hip hop. We always think that the apple radio play was going to have multiple channels and then it was only one for the longest time. That buys anyone implied more than one, right? That would be Channel One and there's no channel it will be renamed Apple Music One apple music hits will celebrate everyone's favourite songs maybe not mind from the eighties nineties and two thousands. Apple Music country will spotlight country music. One thing that apple's doing with these, which I think is. I don't know how I about it is. It's very heavily just like apple. One Apple Beats one very heavily. DJ. Flavored, you know they've got big name. Dj's who are going to host these music beats one was Zane. Lowe and remember and. Judy Anton knew all of that. and then they would have musicians host their own kind of shows. So let's see what apple music hits is going to be helmed by, and maybe you know these names Jayde, Donovan austell low key Jenn Marino Sabi the whole sky natalie sky and strongbow. I do know strongbow and I'm sure you'd be Rene George strapless.

Black Women and Hip Hop
"Hbo Max, documentary on the record betrays how sexual abuse against Black Women in hip hop has gone largely unchecked, the New York Times and said there were other women. That they will go on the record unless I go on the record, but I'm terrified of the backlash. Due to rampant misogyny, careers and dreams have been destroyed. That's the case according to drew. Dixon and Cherry share to women who say their bright futures and music were disrupted by the actions of record executive. Russell Simmons Dixon alleges that Simmons use the promise of tape to learn her into his apartment where he allegedly raped her. Cher Cher was a young aspiring artist and member of the first. All female rap group the Mercedes Ladies One day in nineteen, eighty three. She says Simmons invited her up to his office to talk business, but instead he proceeded to assault her. Both women eventually left the industry after these alleged incidents and remained silent for decades. Drew Sherri thank you so much for joining us today. Thanks for having US drew I'm going to start with you the early days of your career in hip hop. We're really impactful. You made one of my favorite songs of all time. You're all need with Mary J. What were your hopes when you entered the hip hop industry before I even got to New York I had a vision board conjuring in my mind I wanted my life to be like that I had a picture of Russell in the center of it all the idea of working for him, making records and influencing this art form was the dream I felt like it was the opportunity of a lifetime in. In the film you said that there were plenty occasions on which Russell was exhibiting behavior that would be called I think in any employee handbook sexual harassment, exposing himself to you propositioning you. How are you able to navigate your career? While also dealing with that type of behavior, I sort of felt like it's like there's another Russell. Simmons I can't duplicate level of an opportunity, so if I could just. Manage around his bad behavior long enough to make a hit record with my name on the back. I can get out of here with like my next golden ticket for the next job. I was twenty three and twenty four. And I now realize my compass was getting moves just a little bit every single time I understand that's how it worked. I didn't think anybody cared about sexual harassment. As far as black women were concerned, because nobody cared about Anita Hill, and that was like maybe two years earlier I didn't understand I was dealing with a Predator in my mind wasn't dangerous. He was just inappropriate. You stay because you hope that perhaps you can provide enough value to the company and move ahead. It's something that you have to go along with. Because the alternative is, you'll be unemployed. Something that I noticed drought. The film is like this desire to keep what you were dealing with to yourself so that. You could make it to the next stage especially as a woman. How did that? Affect like how much leeway powerful men in the industry had to behave in a way that was inappropriate and sometimes violent fees. Men understood that they were the gatekeepers. If Russell decided I was a problem. Then I wasn't just dead in the water at jam dead in the water in the whole black music game when I tell you I love hip hop, I love hip hop. It's like a death I? mean it was a kind of suicide leaving the industry? It was like A. It was kind of suicide.

"Out what I love that song. That is such an just and I never listened to the lyrics. Obviously but musically just the way it builds and builds and builds and builds and builds and builds and builds to this huge crescendo. At the end. Just with this the angsty right just that power in but it started off so gentle. Yeah he says all the through where he says the lyrics at the beginning are almost. You almost can't here. Yeah so so. Well you whisper. Whisper He he's taken the whole like burying himself in the mix too like a whole `nother level. I like he's actually below everybody. I mean you gotta listen for him in the as he grows they grow. The song gets more more tense. There's more motion as his lyrics. Get more emotional and like they all they all just grow to. together is being yeah existence song just progresses along with his what he's doing right. It's it's it's it's work of art really that you know the video for this creates a hideous being. It's it's grotesque looking you know. It's a very Adam Jones and Again with that with that timber in style you know very macabre very creepy looking thing and so the next the next plane existence. Has this thing to us. Looks Awful looks scary. Yeah but that's because we're below it right we're below at. We're looking up at it. I it has evolved past us and so this new thing is this new creature that has whatever characteristics that we can't possibly comprehend very interesting. Yeah I like this has been fun. It's been fun.

Heads I mean there's gotTa Weird There's a Lotta especially. Yeah if you take out of context and if you were to hand somebody this play lips or less make reference.

"favorite song" Discussed on Our Favorite Albums
"You've been holding back the whole time. And he was like I fills. Doug is grab a couple of things in here and go with it if you don't mind Lille and Billy Cobham and Charlie Angelini in buddy rich A lot of what Keith Moon was doing although not quite as technical definitely John Bonham Bernard Purdie that spoke about four. Steve Gadd Either Jeffords steep character was one of those Those guys that had this this ability to to play within the drum fill space is what made neil so legendarily wonderful You can go back and listen to some of the billy cobham stuff. That that he didn't seventy at some point. Drummers are putting out jazz solo albums when the jazz fusion stuff was happening. And you go go holy crap. That's a whole album of nothing but a bass player Jaco But everything is built around that. What's amazing is that Neil wrote the songs but he didn't write him around the house right. The drums framed the songs. But it with getty going on the base and Alex over there just completely smoking so let the the way the way they write is Neil sits in a room and writes poetry and lyrics and Alex Getty going another room and just work on riffs until they come up with the song real then they get the song and then they take the lyrics from Neil Getty has to figure out which the lyrics go on which song and how to put them all together as I understand that right well are they wrote anyway but it but to your point I mean yes you got the guy writing the lyrics not writing them for the drums and then having to come in and put the drums around the music that the other guys have been working on and it's a it's a fascinating thing that they come up with this well-crafted song once again. The Guitar Solos Appropriate. The base roofs are probably the drums are appropriate. Guys that can just keyboards. The synthesizers are appropriately. Everything is right for the song. And these are guys that as we know from your selection Y Y Z are all capable of just going off in virtuoso sewing themselves for minutes and minutes and minutes at a time and just showing what amazing musicians they are and this is an example of them showing a lot of restraint and producing a very well crafted song that that really is a very cool song You want me to guess at what I thought your Maroon be please. I'm afraid this is going to hurt. Your feelings won't Trees well I mean. That's definitely up in the the list near the Pantheon. It's in the Pantheon it will. It tells a story. You know the. It's a great story. The IT OAKS and Maples. Yeah okay The oaks have overgrown the forest and the maples are underneath and demand light and so the maples demand that they get the same amount of light as the oaks. Even though to to do that they gonNA cut the down right at the end. They're all kept equal. Buy a hatchet accent saw. I thought for sure that'd be yours because it's so metaphorical. Sure you tell me. Is this not part two of of that type of of story? I mean you're talking about you're telling people who are outcasts. Don't worry about being outcast. And so there's almost like moral of the story here like a youthful moral. That's you're giving. Kinda take that a little bit differently. I think Neil is more talking about the fact that it's not good like he's not saying stay here he's talking about the fact that it's it's not a great place to be you can't some people just aren't meant for this. I'm I'm I'M NOT IN ANY WAY. I'm not trying to glorify subdivisions. I'm saying that what they're doing is they're preaching this This socially everybody's going to sit here and nobody's going to be just like I said don't call her outside and then almost telling these guys are the ones who are suffering from this. That does say that word suffering. I don't think so. The ones who are suffering through this Being shunned by society by. What's cool almost telling them you? It's the latest yeah you can be a Rockstar to. That's definitely what he's saying. In in you know in August I grew up in the suburbs. Outside of Houston suburbs could be very nice places. Shirt might mean we have. We have nice houses. We have you you know what I mean so I didn't have pizza. That's a fair point so I think it's all a matter of what is where square. Pete's it's where I mean I think it's all a matter of perspective right. I mean you've got guys peop- you write songs about how miserable it is to grow up in a small town. How terrible it is to live inside Does that absolutely Merck mcmurtry. He's half of his lyrical content from his first. Few albums is talking about all the bad things. About small towns threes writing about his perspective or perspective shows. Take so you know. It's not that suburban necessarily bad but for some people you know what else talking about like if you're a dreamer and you really WanNa Flyer on way. That's maybe not the best for you and some sometimes. I think that when I hear that Song because I've heard that song so many times I. It was a regular on the platelets From Cuba now too in Dallas growing up it's a rock a rock radio staple yeah and so when that song would come on I I would try to sing along to it but I didn't get all the words in looking at this. I mean other than in the high school halls in shopping malls I could sing along with that The rest of it it. It's complex it is really a lot of complexity here. There's not their structure but for just listening to it on the radio and that's probably why people have a hard time understanding rush. They have a hard time understanding why this band is so great that there's probably some truth to that. This is not a sing along this band but it is though we'll see we'll do. I sing along with it. Yeah but I mean just in general overall arching like stuff that goes on the radio that everybody can wave their hands up in the along this this is not that kind of song and this is not the kind of be another might have some they definitely have some radio anthems shirk question but you were just talking about. What kind of band is a very much in that rush? Style Vein Right. Listen this is. This is our favorite albums. You're not gonNA find Leonard Skinner here. you know you're not. You're not gonNA find favorites on Gay. You're not gonNA find Leonard Skinner. Yeah you're not so But Gosh that's very deep song that can't tell you how many times people have heard of classic rock. That was probably came on after a Leonard. Skinner song you know like Sweet Home Alabama and then subdivisions yeah now subdivisions by rush and then maybe Moody Blues. Which is yeah. Yeah it's it's there's more to it than you would think yeah and I love that about it. So okay well. Hey that was my number two. I was my number one. Sorry that was my number one number one of all time. Are We Dannebrog to the very last song? This is it man okay. Do you have the floor of this? Is the final track. I'm going to do a quick run through we had some land. From King's x Gretchen goes to Nebraska from nineteen eighty nine. We had time pink Floyd dark side of the Moon from nineteen seventy three and you and I shared that as one of our favorite songs. Your next session was so what by Miles Davis from kind of blue from nineteen fifty nine. I had Deacon Blues from steely Dan on the Asia album in nineteen seventy seven new damage by soundgarden from bad motor finger in nineteen ninety-one can next ten thousand days wings. Parts who by tool from the ten thousand days album in that was in two thousand. Six bones by radiohead from the band's nineteen ninety-five. My number two was elephant by Jason Isbell from southeastern in two thousand thirteen. And your number. One Song of all time was subdivisions from signals. In Nineteen eighty-two favorite song of all time is forty-six into a tool and I have joked on here that. I don't how many times I've listened to my favorite songs. That is no no more true with any of the songs more so than forty-six into now if you thought I was being deep when I did ten thousand days when I did the ten thousand days sweet buckle up honey because forty six into is about to blow your socks off this guy named Carl Young.

Which was deducted every other syllable goes up up up up The way this goes what he just said He escaped might help any escaped to suit the unattractive youth but the suburbs have no charm to sued the wrestles dreams of youth contaminant. My friend we took rush and put it into shakes. Well I mean this is Neil. So that wouldn't surprise me right my English teacher from school or got to be leading. Mister I got Mardi Jacobson that I thought he dropped teachers left and right. I was a teacher's pet. Start to dream a somewhere to relax. Restless Weiss there's a driving Shattering and how to say this. This guy desperation here. Oh absolutely who is that? They're they're calling back to the time when they were cast out. You know absolutely not only neil seeing it but is that Alex by the way this sort of. Who's that on tape but live Getty Records Alex pluses pedal but doesn't life as well. Yeah that's s getting singing but who's going sub the beaches. That's that is insane. Well is live. You know. I don't know it is on the album. It's a good question. It doesn't because it doesn't go subdivisions. It didn't like that right. No choice him talks. I mean it's kind of squeaky. I'm always annoyed by people who go you know? Russia BE AWESOME. If not for the singer is awesome because the guitar a very simple solo for somebody as good as Alex lives in. But it's that always playing to the song right. What's right for the song while those drums at the end? It's like you've been holding back the whole time. And he was like I fills. Doug is grab a couple of things in here and go with it if you don't mind Lille and Billy Cobham.

"Create vocals. That sound like yet. Another instrument in the room is a. I get emotional. Sometimes when I listen to him do that. Yeah loon shape Pearl. Which was what Graham. His wife that he had divorced right before that and then died of cancer. I believe There are a couple of songs singing to her and the emotion that's coming through on that is just channels emotion. Unlike most singers he he really has a great ability to do it. But it's not the it's not like the the high range like the. He's not a Chris Cornell right he's not It's thin like his vocals are thin. That's I don't think that they have a low knows. I absolutely I mean he's not a major James Keenan. He's not he's different. He's his own thing but he's fantastic but radio ads really the some of. It's all those things together that they're also good at what they do and they all have their part in the band right and they do it well. Somebody made a joke. That ed O'Brien was going to do a solo album and it was just going to be our jobs and background vocals. That's funny. Because that's what he doesn't radiohead right. I mean He. He plays the guitar parts in the back and make sure Collins space to do his thing starting on kid. Afl So bad for him and Phil. So I felt so bad for those guys because I know that they were in the band but their roles and reduced to nothing. But not really though because Like John Johnny will go in and Jonny Greenwood Guitar He plays a lot of the. They're not just doing sense on that stuff and there's actually like if they are they're playing and I mean they're like they're playing note so they're still they're still involved in the instrumentation and even if it's just like sitting there with a guitar feeding back and turning it on and off. I mean they still do everything so. It's not just like it's Tom. You'RE GONNA synthesize. I had an older brother. I had to sit there and watch him play football to be the referee. I get it. You're still on album. I Guess Yeah we'll let you play football. Please stay over here. You're going to be there. Yeah the sound of that song. The albums fantastic. Obviously everybody should own that and should be fans of it but it should that that song is just that is such a standout track for me in everything that is cool the groove the mood the guitar plane angsty. I mean it's just it's A. It's a perfect capsule of time. I think in it's just that excellently. It's perfectly executed Song Right I. I don't think it's anything bad about it. There was one night after I got this on Vinyl That you come over and final after our third or fourth bottle of wine We put this on and we sit there and listen to it and I'm just like leaning back and just like cow man good. It stands the test of time so well and it still sounds. Fresh is relevant. Still you know then part of that has to do with once again just the just overwhelming influence. They've had on rock and roll over the last twenty years well and and I think after this once you get into okay okay computer. Which I've always said is probably my favorite album but really I think it may be the bins. Like if I if I really break it down. I'm not sure that the business. But again being a radiohead fan. I can go through their times. Were in rainbows is going to be my favorite album or the thief is going to be my favorite album. And it really depends like you. I listen to radiohead more than anything else. That is my number one band that I listen to it. Isn't that funny? I can't I can't get enough of it and it depends on what a fun fact. You probably knew this. But a Jonny Greenwood does soundtracks for movies and he scored. There will be blood. I'll be damned. I did not know that I had idea I knew much movies began. He's also a director's name. He's done all Burton way. Can you imagine if timber done there will be blood daily often? What a different world. That would have been peewee. Herman Stick Is that was my pee wee Herman but that was very very those over to those bones by radiohead off the fantastic. Our from nineteen ninety-five the Benz. You will never ever get me to say anything. Bad about a radiohead beating colluded on any best of album. Our Best of list. I mean I agree. Yeah okay We Have A. We did the next to yells to the next. Yeah now we're GONNA do. We'll do one I I'll do I'll do my number two and then we'll decide which which one of US gets the pig. Our first real episode. That's coming into this. Actually get into the album into our favorite albums. So far it's been our favorite songs My number two was released in two thousand thirteen. There are to me. The Art of the Troubadour. The the songwriter I it is somewhat lost. It was picked up again over the past few years with Indian roots type at the Americana Genre. Yeah it was picked back up but for the longest time. When you think about like woody. Guthrie the You know some of the folks stuff. Joan by Emmylou Harris. You know that sort of thing where Where you have these songwriters that are writing meaningful songs in such a poetic verse is to me is something that I yearn for that. There's there's a certain that I love My three favorite song writers of all time number. Three's townes van Zandt four Texas I bought you one time called live at the quarter. I believe fantastic. Just listen to that the other night. Actually it's him. It's him in a bar. That's not air conditioned and you can hear the fans going gets him with a guitar singing. Yeah Yeah My number two is James. Mcmurtry whose Dad Larry. Mcmurtry of lonesome dove fame right from From in Texas right here where we are they'll be adjacent mercury album on this list there absolutely. Yeah and I want to introduce people to James at Mercury and I want people to realize just how good avait of a lyricist James mcmurtry is he is a Ho- what a storyteller wonderful but Townes van Zandt died. Jason Mercury is still around but my number one song writer of all time is Jason. Isbell really yeah and his album. Southeastern should be issued to you when you get your. Social Security Card. That is what an amazing album. Emily's worn it out practically the social good so so I mentioned this by the way I went through and did an average of our favorites of our ten favorite songs. You WanNa guess what year what year we have for our ten favorite songs. Why don't you just tell us number Michael Nineteen eighty-six really okay? Yeah Yeah so It it's messed up by the fact that we have. Jason is bull that came out in two thousand thirteen and the fact that we did Miles Davis in nineteen fifty nine. So I I the ends of the spectrum so I took those too often and ended up being nineteen ninety-six five so nine thousand nine hundred six about the average consistent. But let's talk about the song elephant by Jason. Is Bill from the two thousand thirteen release South Eastern and why? This is my number two song of all time. This is a song that did not occur. This is a story that he created because he was dating a girl who was a bartender and she said to him. One time these people come in these characters come in and they sit at my bar and they tell their stories and they're here for awhile and they become regulars and then one day they disappear and I don't know where they go and then their story is over. The Sundays had a song back in nineteen ninety. That was this where the story ends. I and I think that's one of the most cold-blooded things to say to someone. This is where the story ends. I it's my son and I'm like when we're arguing about stuff. This is where the story ends. I wish she was saying that. Some of these people that come in and drink their nose purple their stories just end go. She never knows. And so Jason is bull took that Song In wrote a a dialogue with one of the regulars at a bar that she's unnamed don't know She Calls Him. Andy which I have noted why Andy but she does Maybe a fifty meter. She's dying of cancer. She is terminal with cancer and he's talking about the fact that this girl is on a bar stool drinking the last bit of her life away and dying. This is elephant by Jason Isbell. F Word in here which is the best place if we're Nissan. It's appropriate crosslegged on a bar to his. His imagery storyteller really really touched almost a parallel. Your point any tire album southeastern is this good. So he's talking about he's taking this girl home and this is what he says about her right here. Listen before she gots never. I'd never hear the end of that. I love that as friends of make fun of him for his ugly girl but now that she's sick they kind of you know. It's kind of expected because default never hear the end of it. I love it. Do Science that that phrase that try to ignore the elephant you know. Just how did that juxtaposition of like just everyday activities like drinking beer and hanging out and talking and just trying to pretend like it's not there the demise is always there that Sylvia plath sorta way was legitimate trying to ignore it like it's not there see his description of her here and I know what she looks like. This grabber sharecropper is almost all gone. She's she was drunk. She made cancer Joe surrounded by family. So she's long senior class. She she boys we Bernie's Johnson average. Grab what we used be burned. These joints an effigy. Line is brilliant. I love that this is. This is so sad to me. Ask My face that on. Give Damn about the. There's one thing that's clean me down. That line pierces me. Oh absolutely haunting. If you've ever watched someone die but.

"We've done before we've done four songs. We have six to go. And just how like how meaningful these these are. This is our top three songs of all time. Lots to talk about Great stuff too and you know this this band. That's that's my three is one of my favorite bands of all time in. This is also one of my favorite albums of all time which is going to be a trend here. This is a track off side three. If I remember correctly vinyl okay the vinyl. It's an realize how dirty you know. I know I do that. Sometimes people look like. Is that really necessary? But two sides of the coin in four sides to the vinyl exactly. Well it's actually There's three sides than a blank side. There's no music yes. I had had just enough for three but not enough for the full four. Yeah interesting You'd think they at least put like an interview or something in there. Well this was nineteen ninety-one so I'm sure if they reissued it. They put interview but they can't do that. So we're talking about is new damage by the band. Soundgarden off of amazing album bad motor finger bad motor finger which came out in nineteen ninety. One what have I said about bad motor finger one of the greatest grunge albums of all time original foundational job. Yeah so this. Is the true grunge giants that came out in. Nineteen ninety-one that was Pearl Jam's Tin. It was bad motor. Figure by Soundgarden in their own is never mind. You know what's interesting about that? We talked about that in the bottom. Five if you will Recognizing on his influence in. I know you're much bigger nirvana fan than I am but I thought it was interesting. Nevada didn't make it into the top ten. I'm GonNa tell you to surprise me. Beatles didn't either alluded to the fact that I loved the Beatles. Yeah I mentioned. Pet sounds by the beach boys. We're specifically by Brian. Wilson who labelled pet sounds as a as a beach boys album. It was actually a Brian Wilson album right. There was nothing even though God only knows is one of the greatest songs ever written One was gorgeous songs written. It's not on my top ten favorite songs. It's funny how that works. Yeah we're we're talking about favorite songs. I if I had to sit here and just like what is the greatest at the station too right. I mean wh-what objectively. What are we talking about like? I perfectly tuned. I mean it's subjective. It's music it is. There's no way in the world you can say. Which is the sergeant pepper's say which one was the best but it was obviously a Beatles but anyway I thought that was interesting with Netanyahu's number two. So soundgarden is in was My favorite of the original grunge. God's okay by a long shot yeah And I think bad bad motor finger is it is so dark and gloomy head. I was almost going to describe grungy as grungy but it really is. I mean is this like plotting heavy deep depressing almost in a Lotta ways but there's some upbeat tunes on the album as well. But the the whole vibe of the thing is is very heavy Just Kinda slogging through it if you will right. I'm very unusual Mix In my opinion just in the sense that you've got the Great Chris Cornell who has I think possibly the voice in grunge and one of the best voices in rock and roll period. I mean these are the top of the list as far as though great singers go. I mean I'm I'm going to like knock on the door and ask Jeff Buckley if Chris Cornell can hang out with me in that apartment in the sky. Yeah we're we're talking about one of the absolute great singers of all time. I need you guys to sit here and sing. A song can do something for me. Kim thile on guitar is a very interesting to our player of. He's he's a style all his own. I mean you always sounds like himself Matt Cameron on drums Interesting well. I'll get to that layer and Ben Shepard on Bass and Ben. Shepard had just joined the band for this album. He wasn't on their first album which was louder than love which came out in eighty nine. I think in a lot of them. Love sounds completely different. But you say that the eighty nine release was it more of kind of that hair metal type. It sounded more like that. I'm actually not grudge. Came from her hair metal researcher among other things. But yeah. I'm not a fan of louder than love. It doesn't do anything for me. This is I would say that. This is the first soundgarden album. Okay in my opinion. Yeah Okay I'm Craig Up. This is new damage by soundgarden from bad motor finger in nineteen ninety.

"That has clocks and stuff. I'm going to go for a bit and I'm okay. Yeah that's fine. I mean once again if you're listening to this as an as a whole album this is necessary because it sets the tone and there's there's little pieces between all the all the tracks in the segues it's maddening. It's going crazy right. These guys did a couple of songs that were representative of that chaotic crazy. Mind specifically in reference back to sit one of which was shine on you crazy. Diamond Ranch was written bathroom for him about Syd Barrett in this one. Sounds like heartbeat and in here. We go those clocks by the way. We're all H individually record shop. That I did not now really now. If you wanted to go have a bunch of Clark starting to offer you would just say. Hey Punch. They Punch up the clock down on computer games. And let's just go with Google clock pulling nine hundred seventy two or whenever they're putting together. You know you had to go two o'clock store but the idea of recording each individual clock is the dedication level and also. They must have had a very large budget from south. They can afford us in the studio engineer out the do that. I think they didn't have this job and this was on the heels of a very large automobiles by but a success bullying facade level of this but we talk about Vinyl Vinyl captures. If you're looking at a wave on a computer assembly on a computer it captures everything from the low stuff the low frequencies stuff whereas if you compress that into a digital format it just squeezes everything down to a much thinner pipe therefore the low level stuff is supposed to be load is the same volume as high level staff and so that that's called dynamic impression and what you're missing as the dynamics you're missing the nuance and my friend. There's nuance with time by pink. Floyd grew the song. Be Very slow three backup singers. Oh Gilmore let's talk about David Gilmour one of the absolute great guitar playing right there that I'm talking over like an asshole is just absolutely some of the bus. And what's what's remarkable about David Moore. Is he puts a lot of hair under all of his notes. That there's a lot of feeling like a lot of these expressive right threatening right. There's air into their but he leaves a lot of notes out when he goes from here to here. There's a whole lot of not leaves out of Guitar. Players would tend to a lot of notes. In between it's it's not natural of one and not play in a guitar. Takes he wants it filled up with space whereas Isa's getting it across man just getting in there but but it just kind of floating on the wings of a speaking today. Rebel air seat here talking about dreaming. Imagine someone who's dealing with some mental issues. If they feel like everything is just kind of floating maybe maybe life he's talking about live. Kinda passed by maybe lot kills real slow his his mind that I was saying right one catch up with Wrestling Guitar. Going up and down on a surround. Sound the level of mixing on this starts way up there Indians a whale year. It's all in between I agree with that was funny line here when quiet. Desperation is the English way. That's hilarious so the proper quiet desperation. Yeah American saw the Times so I love the price there were prize is a this. Is the first track on the album. So a reprises a revisit back to a previous peace. And that's what this is. This is just a real quick back to the first song on the album. Just kinda revisiting them. You come home from work for home again. You're just talked about the desperation of life and I'll also kind of wondered with that verse. I like to be here when I can see talking about. Finally getting off the road. Or maybe they've been onto her for a long time and just like to come back to a comfortable place for once. Is He lamenting having the SUV? Relax good maybe. He's being facetious about the whole thing years. I think there's long what a great my goodness I can never get tired of. The song agree and accept the clocks clocks. I mean I know there's integral.

"Eighty nine. I didn't start playing it for a year. Now you find on there but they do the drop d which is where you turn the lowest of the tune. The low string guitar from e down to d a deeper heavier sounds full. Step on Lois Note. You'RE GONNA full step lower than the guitar would try. And and this is obviously changes the coordinates but sorry everybody. I'm Kinda nerd out here a little bit but guys listen. If you're listening to this just assume that we're going to try to teach US something. He may not even want to know it too because this is heavy guitar. The drop d thing is cool because a lot of the bands that we like the honest list like early nineties. Grunge bands did a lot of drop-dead. This is kind of where that heavy sound of course and eventually it goes crazy and people get down to see and all sorts of stuff but the drop d really adds a lot. So that's a lot of that heaviness in that role fullness to here in. I don't think that these guys can be. Let me phrase that. I don't think you can underestimate the influence that king's x had on rock bands in the ninety S. I think you're right. Even though most people have no idea who they are never heard of them. But I think you're right. I think if you go back and you look at some of the grunge pioneers guys that are considered to be the band's that were emerging from that that eighty S. I mentioned it. In in the bonus episode. There's a lot of like pentatonic opera type bullcrap But there were a few bands I can think of that are absolutely the ones who were contributing to Greenwich turned into I. You know. Heavy two and four beat Lots of Bluesy guitar versus the dramatic stuff right A lot of social commentary you know even or even more fanciful stuff like the things that were more personalized as opposed to where you have like more direct songs. Where is all the girl? I live right on the window but this is more like I don't fit either. Yeah I feel like I in this world and that was the stuff that was grunge. So so the band's I have a mind Meldons pixies keys X. by all means some of the early sonic youth stuff. Sure all that stuff you know. Kirk cobain even said that when he was doing his his his power cord stuff all he was doing just copying picks copy and he's got the soft loud soft soft loud soft kind of their thing right exactly and a lot of that. That grungy stuff had that fun fact for you real quick. I'm thinking of their influence in two thousand eleven dug in Jeff amid actually recorded an album together really and Mike McCready Played Guitar. Jeff was huge. Doug Fan once again. There we go full circle with that information. It was trace mountains. That was the name of the group that was in the project. Was the name of the Project Race Mountains. Yeah don't ask me why it's a I mean. Look it up if you want to. It's fantastic but but it just I think it goes to show the influence so if you're listening along and you'd never listened to King's x I'm going to implore you to go check out Kingsley's do now. I think part of me. Jason I've always been kind of like a silently desperate bass player. The base is a fantastic instrument based so much probably enjoy it more than the guitar to be quite honest fun. Yeah and if you give me an opportunity where you go you get to listen to any person completely isolated from banned from these bands when Israeli GonNa pick if you ask me. It's GONNA be based I'M GONNA listen to John Entwistle. I sure sure I'm GONNA listen to horses really hard not to isolate. Primis when you get to promise is basically a base with two other guys per customer base and so less capable to the is the genius behind promised but those guys is weird. Is they are. That's a progressive. I'm sure I think he's make that because of the calorie there and it was weird. It was quirky. That's putting it mildly but for example his Zappa Progressive Rock. Do we have to talk about things up? We absolutely have talked about Frank. Zappa that we really at some point ride moody will be there. Well that was. That was my number five. Mom My last point on the homeless. My Research said that Jerry gaskill wrote that song and the lyrics. You mean the lyrics it was about He had gone back to his His home state of Mississippi and he'd been around some of his family and he had this like passed oral perfect environment kind of idea in his mind that he always thought about this summer and the perfect place and he gets there he finds it to be Kinda hateful any kind of finds it to be a spiteful environment that he really didn't it just didn't remember it that way and it was just kind of what you were you. It's summer land is everything was perfect. Everything this guy's in blue everything's in love with you etc such you know. And so. And that's what that's what Doug The article that I read with Doug. Pennock the singer he was saying. That was Jerry and Jerry gone back. And it wasn't perfect as he thought it was when he was a kid and he was wishing he'd go back to that innocence. Gotcha Gotcha love that. The whole you're finally getting old. The wind is finally getting cold now. We're finally here. We've come across the point where we've gotten old which is a great segue to my number five in absolutely as I mentioned on episode one that you and I shared a favorite song our top team and this is it. It is one the one this one and for for technicality. It was ranked higher on your list than it was online right. You got to keep it. That's right we're talking about the epic Classic Rock Song Time. By Pink Floyd from the epic album dark side of the moon. Nineteen seventy three nine thousand. Nine hundred seventy three when this came out now back to vinyl. If you had a record player and you don't own dark side of the moon go buy it right now. Send me an email. Let me know where your addresses come over and we'll your ass you've got to have dark side of the moon on vinyl. If you're into records right. This is absolutely one of those albums that exists to be listened to from front to back without skipping to the songs that you like to here. Yeah the problem with this. Is that if you've only ever listen to this for this album for the singles time for instance and you never. Did this allowed it to go through with everything else in the background. You're missing the album experience. Completely less right there was the Houston. This is an aside. I'm not trying to hijack your song but the well to be fair to okay. Let's do you want to hear this. The planetarium and he's done at the Natural History Museum. When I was in high school used to do a laser light show. Yeah too dark side of traveling. When we were in high school got would come around and on on on the edge for sure. Maybe on Cuba to They would advertise this laser light show. I was in the planetarium. Was Dogs Out of the movie. It was fantastic. I remember it mostly being fantastic. Mostly remember it means them. Forget it so. Let me give you a little background on this. Go for a dark side of the moon is mostly genius musician. Ship of Roger Waters who played the Bass and wrote a lot of this However Roger Waters was an original member of Pink Floyd along with syd Barrett syd Barrett. It was really the genius behind the sixties version of pink floyd and syd Barrett was. I mean brilliant. He was a brilliant brilliant us edition and then something happened to syd Barrett syd Barrett started taking copious amounts of acid and did not recover and he had some weekend where he is a couple of his acid buddies. Went off and something happened where they locked him in a trunk or locked him in a closet or something happened and then he went missing and when they found him he was different and he descended into madness. I don't mean madness as he's acting weird or he spent a lot of money. I mean my institutionalized love bad and he never recovered and they had to kick him out of the band. David Gilmore was one of his friends and as Sid Baird became more and more dysfunctional. They had to remove him from the band. And David Gilmour became the frontman but still it was Roger Waters. Who was who was writing a lot of the stuff right and I think Waters took over the lion's share of the songwriting either Barrett left on this album and the the wall their double album or both predominantly roger water genius and eventually he and David Nick Mason and Sh ch Richard Right. Richard that was other guy Those guys got to the point ladies where they just couldn't stand each other anymore they had to split Roger Waters left them than the other guys went on and yet released. Learn learning flatwoods. Moser I division bell division bell business detract off. It was learning to fly which is a gorgeous song gorgeous song. Yeah but it's definitely not this so it's definitely not Roger waters lots of central stuff right so this song in my top team is unique in that. It doesn't have like a really deep meaning. What it's saying is your life is getting ready to pass you by. You're getting older. As a matter of fact one of the th- The lyrics on this thing absolutely love goes so you run you run to catch up with the sun but it sinking and racing around to come up behind you again. The Sun is the same in a relative way but you're older shorter of breath and one day closer to death. It's brilliant pr. You're on your deathbed to read. That you would cry right because you're going to die But is there a better way to describe that feeling of mortality of going? This is gonNA come to an end. And that's what these guys were riding with. The song time absolutely absolutely. So it's kind of funky thing with time is it has a two minute intro..

"How's it going man? Good it's going to be back man. Has it been a week? It has been a week it has been. I think that the response that we got from our friends who were listening to US talk about music has been very positive it was it was very positive overall. We had one guy out there. That didn't like something we had to say. But otherwise it's and you know you are otherwise it's been very positive. It's our favorite albums favorite outlets. Yes not your favorite and it's not the best albums ever absolutely. This is our favorite albums. These are the songs that we love the most. This is one hundred percent subjected. Yeah Yeah and I will go on record. I don't care that Don McLean was just as as responsible for buddy holly's famous Buddy Holly's music so there I will agree with you one hundred percent and we're going to hear from Negu. I would assume that we on facebook slash our favorite albums. We'll hear from our friend here comes and that's okay. We love that kind of stuff affect the more comments the merrier. That's after all this is just a conversation. That's right this whole idea started as a confrontation conversation so this should be a conversation when you get a couple of guys that just like talking about music and eventually it's going to happen. Give them some recording equipment. What do you think's GonNa happen eventually? You and I are going to disagree on something when it comes to music so far we've gone. Yeah that's a good one and then I'll do when he goes. Yeah that's a good one eventually. You're not going to get to the point where you go dude. That is enough of that group. I think that's entirely possible. I might do it to you. I will see everything we can do. Avoid that happening now okay. So we're doing five. We started with five today so we. We started off with our our favorite songs. We started at ten and worker. Downs are way down six list over there. Aren't you run down so far? What our top six ten threw out by the way there's going to be a lot of paper rattling this week for the first time through. There's extra nuts. They were songs that we loved absolutely but this time these songs deeper so we had to have borne so last week's discussion for those follow along at home mine. Number ten was fooling. The rain by led Zeppelin. Michael's number ten was TB sheets by Van Morrison. My number nine. Was I stay away by Alison? Chains Michael's number nine was why z? By rush by the way they say why. Why is it really? They do that. The Guy who wrote it. Neil I mean if that's all he says that that's how we should probably say he says what is it. I I never heard a sing it that way and concerts. That was a joke. Because it's an instrumental. My number eight was favorite thing by the replacements. Michael's number eight was Jeremy by Pearl Jam. My number seven was. This must be the place naive melody by talking heads. Michael's number seven was moonlight mile by the rolling stones. Michael's numbers might number. Six sorry was lover. You should've come over by the Great Jeff. Buckley and Michael's number six was the nurse who loved me by failure. What what did you listen to you when you went home? Jeff Buckley but the one did I do too. That's just such a good album death. It's Kinda hard to beat and it was just. It was the one that stuck with the like all the songs like the conversation we had but that was the one that I thought it was going to stick with me and that was the one that stuck with me. Sure so I went home in turn on Charles. Mingas ooh Nice. I made brief Mention Charles. Mingas in that in that last episode as I was talking about the jazz the Modal Jazz. In by the way we're going to get any modal jazz. We are yes very shortly but I made brief mention of of Charles mingas in that in that episode. We did last time in so I got to thinking is like what do I want to listen to and so I was thinking too? I WANNA listen. Van Morrison like I. Don't you know other than I think? Brown eyed girl is on a blown your mind other than that the rest of the album. I can do without Mood for for Moon Dance. It's funny how that works. There's songs on this list love the song I could live without the up and down to listen to it and you made a great point of that okay. So here we go. We're doing number five through number one. Jason you up again. You want to start again with this. Yeah I mean unless you WANNA flop. I don't care. I've got to do a playlist here. We'll muscle just keep it there. Yeah Okay you're number five mine. Number five is the song summer land by the band. King's X off. The album Gretchen goes to Nebraska from nineteen eighty nine. This is a band out of Houston says a my hometown. This is a three piece band that you could consider as Progressive Rock. I think especially especially in the early days and Quite okay so so. Let's define press progressive rocky. Because we you and I are going to talk a lot about Progressive Rock. Sure we're gonNA talk about rush. We're going to talk about tool we're going to talk about. Yes we are. Don't look at me like talking about those guys but what makes Progressive Rock Progressive Rock on. What your definition so a fancy time signatures and fancy keys and lots of crooked notes and lots of complex compositions sure versus the The simple to complex musicianship instrumentation as opposed to three chord rock Go usually combined with. I mean when I say usually combined with a superior skills all player musicians musicianship is topnotch. Whether that's vocally rhythmically. Whatever they're all very good as general in one of the one of the things that really bothers me about this generation of kids is the music that they love. Every generation goes back to your parents and the parents are always like. You're you sound like the old mammoth corner right. I Guess Cloud Cloud Fair Point though I mean I have teenagers in the amount of auto tune that is used now and backing tracks. I mean you got two guys in a room with a computer and you can make an album billion dollars and good for them. Yeah that's just not anything that I find interesting. That goes completely. It's the antithesis of that. Ten thousand hours thing where you do something for two thousand hours and you've come an expert right. These guys who were honking on saxophone until their lips were bleeding right. The guys who play guitar until their fingers bled fingers off the Stevie Ray Vaughan and you've told me super is fingers calluses back on his fingers. Calluses would fall off. He'd superglue his fingertips back on him. He also played with the heaviest gauge guitar strings. That any man has probably ever played with so but still that that once again that's dedication level that you're talking about and over and over again whereas Britney Spears would only wash your hair with like Evian water thinks anything. There's a lot of talent involved in the water. You got to be honest. Let's let's let's be frank about that. Listen you gotta you gotTa sacrifice for your craft right exactly you got to put the effort into it Weiqing Sex. I have always been an essay always since the first time I heard Mrs their second album. The first was planet which is and this is. I think this is a consummate album of the time period. And and this is. We're talking eighty nine so we're coming out of the eighties rock and roll and we're moving into the nineties rock and roll on this is kind of in the middle. The talent level is is huge with these guys and they write catchy hooks taper is one of my favorite guitar players of all time Just just a huge huge fan of the guy and he would not say that he is. He's not Alex. Life's and he's not an overly technical shredder type of Virtuoso. He's more of a blues player really in a lot of ways okay but but also very melodic and kick. The song plays a lot of our pegos Which on the song he's about to do as well Notes within the cords as opposed to just court so page go. We'll talk about that a lot when we say our Pezzo for those of you at home. That aren't necessarily musicians. That means you're making a cord stretch like on guitar. You're making a chord shape with your figures and instead of strumming all of them once you're going right down the street and you're playing a note within your playing nuts within the chord pattern right so which is about what we're we're about to hear here we're going to hear it right off the bat now before we start place. I want to point out that you sit this before this was a trio and this is about as powerful a trio is. It gets this. Is You even mentioned the twelve? String Bass that panic play. That's correct. Yes so we had talked about that with Pearl Jam that Jefferson opened up Jeremy with a twelve string bass and I said we're going to get another twelve string before this he played a hammer. Twelve string bass on the first couple of albums Which is very the sound of that is very apparent in this song. And talk about that but you can really hear the amount of sonic space. It takes up if you will and unlike Jefferson who is a fine bass player but he plays a little bit more simplistic whereas you're gonNA hear Doug do a refs and riffs on a twelve string bass is obviously not particularly easy but that does cover up a lot of space in. Jerry's a fantastic drummer. He pleasure all over the place. Doug is also. The senior in his vocal range is staggering correct. But also it's worth noting that both Jerry Anti Sang background so you get a lot of three part harmonies with these guys. Which is super unusual for rock bands? Like this especially. When you've got a guy that this is almost like Beatles esque Sri will with the backing harmonies in the way that they do things and it's so once again very unusual mix of sounds almost like an almost the soulful. You'll hear here's some of the stuff that Doug doesn't almost like solo singing right you know. And he grew up in the church. Isn't that the thing is he grew up. Like in a yeah. You just raised by his grandmother. I believe In kind of a southern you can feel that his always always always feel that from go ahead hit star. At least. We're we're listening for therapy guitar up and down the notes we're listening for that base and the last thing that I wanna point out as the drummer is Jerry. Gasol hits the fucking drums. So he's a monster monster when you have you ever see videos of them when they were back in the in the nineties when those guys were really really big shows uric ESCO remember the cartoon when Bugs Bunny is playing baseball and he's beaten the other team the guy gets up there and he has carved out like a tree and he's holding like a tree trunk Jerry gaskill holding two sticks of these torn off of a jury and he's back there smacking on the Durham. Yeah and I've seen these guys live a few times and he hits hard and they are loud. They're so loud really really really loud I. This is summer lion. King Zack's Gretchen goes to Nebraska from nineteen eighty nine peasants. The tone is so rich.

"Have you seen any of the videos. Tuneless down. But have you seen any of the videos? Where like the first reaction of vocal coaches who have like listening to something for the first time. It's on youtube where it's Now this guy's GonNa listen to Maynard James Keenan seeing okay. Now this song and it's a vocal go like okay. I can see where he's going well so there is some one There is a vocal coach Esau. Video that she does Jeff Buckley It's a live performance of Hallelujah. Wow and you just see her eyes were. She's like what's happening. What's going the that song is so overdone without question? But his version of the song as far as I'm concerned is the definitive version of the song. Everybody should stop recording it. So Rufus wainwright did a with all due respect a damn good version of it. Absolutely but all he was doing was was copying Jeff Buckley. Yeah and it's good. I think the Rufus wainwright version is very good. But he's Jeff Buckley's Jeff Okay. Macwoods version is the best that there's sometimes something happened like a song comes along so things at a certain way and you should just take it and lock it and everybody should not be allowed to play. I sing that performed that and I I think his version Hallelujah Louis is one of those but anyway that was my talking about. How are you so that was my six? We'll talk about how we will lover. You should've come over. Jeff Buckley off the fantastically amazing album. Grace what a great selection thank you. I'm probably a list of that one way home just so I can tell you right now. I'm going to put on vinyl when I go to make dinner tonight. So a so of all these songs. You've listened to nine songs so far. That's that's the one I'm going to go home and listen to something well unless you change my mind because you still got one go so I have wanted to go? There's no in world. You're going to play this when you go. There was an album released. A nineteen ninety six in the middle of the revolution for for for our generation of who we are right and I had no idea that he existed until the mid arts until a perfect circle did a cover of song the nurse who loved me on their second album thirteenth step. It was this dreamy. Ethereal it was just maynard. And we're cloudy Keyboard. Whereas Lockheed huffed either in singing to it and I couldn't get enough of listening to that Song I wanted to listen to this song over and over and over and then when I realized that he didn't Iraq this guy by the name of Kim Andrews wrote this song then I go who the hell is Ken Andrews and at time of course we had the Internet. Which how much damage could you and I have done as sixteen year olds with with the Internet yet would've been amazing. Yeah so all these little smart kids run around here with nothing to do at the I will say until I'm dead. Boredom is a luxury of the youth. If if you had given me the Internet an unlimited supply of songs in Wikipedia at age sixteen I would have been a disaster. It would have been fantastic fantastic fantastic. I'm glad that you use the word fantastic because the album by failure fantastic planet came out in Nineteen Ninety six point in that. I beg all of you. Who are listening to go out and buy the album. Fantastic planet by failure. It is one of my favorite albums of all time really. It is Because it's a three piece playing power post grunge that the sound is that low tone that you love right low low tone but it's also this power trio seeing about some of the post grunge stuff that was happening in the nineties so I manage to miss somehow just like you did that album and I'm sure it was in all the noise of all the other stuff that was coming out. I missed it at the time and I also heard the song for the first time on. Abc's in had no idea where it came from and like you. I was like well wrote this thing. What is this stuff going on and I had no idea in? You're right it's it's really good. It's it's gorgeous and So here's the background. Failure was a traveling band. They toured with tool in the ninety s and open for them Perfect Circle The Billy Howard L. is the. He's the genius behind that. He was a road for tool right right and he would go to mater. Say Say I've got these songs. What do you think about him and Maynard says if you put together a group? I'll be your singer and so I'll be damned if he didn't do it. I'll be down to Billy Howard. L. Didn't do it. And one of the songs one of the groups that they toured with was failure at a three piece band. That was really got to know them when they were opening for tool. Yeah yes on a lot in my heart. The song it'd be Howard L. Put together this this arrangement of the of the nurse. Who loved me for their for their. That's such a cool store element kind of suffering like everything just has to just get just right like you know this guy and then you got this guy over here and then they come together and they record the song and there you go two more examples of that exact same thing. The group filter right. Yeah now that was nice nails and the other one would be escapes me. We'll come back to it. It was definitely nice now while yes I'll think about it second. I'm going to tell you about the nurse who loved me. Let's here here's the here's the story with this. It's told from Someone who is in a mental hospital. And he is bound in a straitjacket right and the lyrics. Go say hello to the rugs topography. It holds quite a lot of interest with your face down on fascinating absolutely. Yeah I had no idea this really cool and in the second verse goes say to all the apples on the ground those droplets of blood as he's hit the ground just face splattered say hello to the apples on the ground. They were once in your eyes. Oh Wow but you sleaze them sleeping so is he in an insane asylum or is seen in drug Rehab. I think the song is about someone who is suffering from heroin addiction and is in a Rehab Hospital and has been bound and he has fallen the ground and he is going crazy but he has fallen in love with the girl who brings him his his methadone and so the nurse who loved me right not to the spy who shagged me spy loving spy. Who loved made this notre both movies but this is the nurse who love the nursing. He's fallen in love with this nurse and he says specifically I'm taking her home with me right because she loves me more than she does these other guys. All these other guys are just other guys but she loves me. She's got everything I need including pharmacy keys in some pills in a little cup. While that's that's cool I had no idea. Yeah and so the song built circa Shindo and goes crazy and you can hear that guitar player when he's a Ken Andrews is straight and you can hear we get to. He just crazy. This his mind is crazy and then it just stops and he says it can say hello to the rugs topography so all this has happened. He's fall in love with this girl and the whole time he's inbound on the ground and he can't get up because he has passed out he fallen down on his face. This is the nurse who loved me along with her. I think he might be right. Not Talking has they've abandoned or at least rice it's it's very low in the mix harm onyx three. S. Dry suit shoe Jerusalem. Yup what story as a great story? She only other guys. She's nice to but she's fall in love with me. She actually checks like a nurse with them with me. She and they went the psychoses. It takes for someone who's in and listened to or going through drug Rehab was laid on a four so obviously he's not controls faculties. So is the craziest thing. We almost like this. This sounds like the mid to late ninety. It does yeah absolutely. Does the word reporting the accident and everything is heartfelt part of this when you phrases pharmacy fees right here. Check out the guitar. Solo here is so minimalistic but again think about someone who's going crazy someone who is bound in strapped minimalistic. This is the chaos here that chaos to guitar in the background is just kind of whaling along. Is it going in and out? Yeah it's definitely got that kind of this jointed spacey. Nece you would expect from someone in his condition. Yeah someone WHO's on Methadone? Someone who has no control facility but listen to the craziness here how it's building up. His mind is not at all at ease and just that maybe he's fighting. Maybe straightjacket despite get out right here in the background. And Wow wow dig in. There's a lot of guitar going on in the background here. It's chaos right. Little chaos scribbles on wall built. Unless it happens here very soon a full circle all the way back around that my friend is genius genius writing it really is an. That's a great example of the the emotion and the music matching the lyrical content. Right and I never listened to it that way before because I always say I had no idea what the story was so well. Thanks for enlightening. Yeah so it makes more sense though. It really does that like the way. The song structured. Everything about it with what is going through. His head is actually is is really brilliant. It's it's much more than just a track from the mid nineties. Well what's interesting about that that album? It was part of a very short-lived not quite as short-lived as the as the swing dance era But it was part of. I Dunno if you could hear that through the microphone. Jason role is that was cool for five minutes. It was a brief moment of of nineties. Rock called space rock a a- Such groups of space always hog. I was GONNA say yes. The grey special. Yeah and so. This album was kinda concept album. I at least loosely based on a A cartoon of fringe cartoon from early seventies called fantastic planet. Really Yeah that is about this It's almost like a psychedelic version of yellow submarine the Beatles. It's kind of like that and it's weird. It's all in French. Of course you know if you're GonNa Watch you can find it on Youtube though Calvin tastic planet and so That Kinda the space rock thing. It's on another planet and whatever Any right that was a short lived thing Eliezer. Shana of rock. And Roll there for a while. But you're right. There was some stuff that came out of that. Yeah Yeah But that song right there at every time I hear that Song I can't tell you how many times I've heard so so. Tell me the songs we've listened to your number six to number ten songs. How many times have you heard him? Do you know now. I haven't. I have not listen to mine that actually ended up being kind of criteria. When I was going through this and I said this before and I'll say it again. I had a hard time doing ten songs and then I had a hard time ranking the ten songs. I thought against you so hard on that people do. This is so hard but but all the songs on here are all songs that I have listened to more times than I could possibly count. And that's what makes the favorite songs right. That's why you keep coming back to them over and over and over again because there's something about him that just just resonates with you. You know it's just it's there and some of the songs in this lists obviously resonate with other people to ensure me. We're not the only ones that like this stuff. But hopefully after after this Some of the people here this. Maybe they'll hear these. Maybe they've ever known these songs. And maybe maybe somebody will go pick something up that that we like and give it a shot and that would be awesome. Everybody on the everybody that we've gone through so far are all bands Bands artists that. Everybody should probably have in your collection if you're into music other than failure we've failures a little bit out there But if once you listen to this album if if you'll give this on the chance that my song my point is we feel like it's worth having ships number six song exactly but regardless Those were the number ten through number six songs that we consider our favorite our top ten favourite songs. The first half of the top ten I after the top ten. Thank you so much for listening. We hope you Subscribe to us on On all of your favorite podcast mediums.

"What's what's funny juices so that was when I like. I'll play that song and I'll sit there and go well. All News is playing the same court over and over and then you realize how good Mick Jagger was that he was able to put that much feeling in In that much sound into into what's going on with with this recording and then he's taken the song that and by the way when the credits to the song released Mc Taylor was promised he would be he would get songwriting credits. Did he not didn't went. To Jagger Richards Jagger wakes up from his slumber and he's like you're gonNA put my name. I know there's lots of cocaine you. I'm so sorry Mick Jagger so that comes out in the open of the Internet's he's trying to show us. This is fantastic. Show Yeah Yeah. And don't you after he played it and he's like this is my masterpiece you know then that way to see my name on the print as the songwriter for the song royalties are going to set for life and then. I got to play lead guitar on my song that I wrote and he pulls it out but he's not even out. Oh Man. That's rough but God I love it so song. That's one that you could just have as a soundtrack earning just listening to it over and over and over again. That will album is sticky fingers. Yeah again on album on vinyl. If you're going to invest in vinyl records then you need to have created by the rolling stones rats until some girls. I think he could probably even leave that one off. And there's a couple of tracks on there that are good but like their high point stuff was and come back in the nineties with a whole bunch of silly stuff so I mean they had Voodoo Lounge and you know I can. I can tolerate that Barely yeah I don't find it very listenable and I understand. I'm probably in the minority there. Everybody likes it but it just the rolling stones are like a time period. Yeah banned from me and I like the stuff that came out of that time period and that's about it you know. Got A great selection man. That is what a great song. It's different but so far are topped in from ten to six. Have been very different. We've selected some pre popular folks that we have Zeppelin. We have allison chain Morrison Rush. I Guess Pearl James Really. The only one that I'm programs Jam's two major player so okay well also took so two more to go number six. Here comes number six Man This guy his voice is just I think. One of the greatest voices it's different. It's unusual talking about Jeff Buckley. Such a tragedy. We only got a one album out of this guy would have been exciting to see what we would have got later but anyway this is lover. You should've come over. And this is off his album grace from ninety four this song like the first time I heard the song I was just Kathy. Divide and I think most people would probably say about Jeff Buckley just because his voice is so unusual in the first time you hear him mister fantastic. This is on the flip side It's Kinda strange song I don't talk about the lyrics very much but the lyrics to this I think are really really really kind of cool I mean it's almost like he's the whole thing is like an angsty young man like trying to deal with growing up a little bit. I think if you think about it because he talks about maybe I'm too young to keep good love from going bad. You know. Maybe I'm not ready for this yet. Every should come over. I was waiting all night. He's looking out the window down the street you know talking about what's going on and she's not there and sometimes manages does with a man does make some mistakes and that's just the way it is you know so there's this kind of the sense of sadness and longing with it but it's just the way he sings it and the musical side. The chords on this the cords. He plays just absolutely fired up. Let's listen to I wanNA hear it now. The musicians have his ban. I think is fantastic. And he gets the obviously the lion's share of the credit because it's Jeff Buckley and it says voice in his his songs but his backing band is really really good I don't know if there's any of those guys ever went on to do anything else. So I gotTa Tell You I think Jeff Buckley's one of the most beautiful human beings that ever lived. I think his ability to play his ability to sing the fact that he's dead to me is one of the greatest tragedies in our lifetime and it wasn't an accident I mean. Obviously he drowned right so he was in Mississippi River in a buddy. Probably a little intoxicated. Maybe you don't know that for sure but I. I think that was what the rumor was but he went swimming in the Mississippi River somehow got swept underneath the middle of the night. You know I mean it's just it happens. Yeah but it sucks. What a tragic way to go. You know I can't decide which I like better. His voice I play is as far as player goes. He's a fantastic. If he really is he expressive in the way he touches the streets his but that but nobody else. Nobody else sounds like how? Now we're talking about that with David Byrne and like some of the other guys earlier. I think most of the people aren't some pretty neat circle is but you know. It's just Buckley. His voice is very unusual and not unusual in the sense that it was copied like nobody. Sounds like with Eddie Vedder. Were talking about earlier. People tried to sound like a better. I I would challenge you to find somebody that tried to sound like Jeff Buckley. Just because he's he's unique you know that we hadn't bands eighty one. I mean it's it's it's soul without affectation exactly. Yeah it's it's definitely he's but it's breathy rate is breathy. I mean he's a their tracks on this album that are kind of almost grungy and then there's this kind of stuff so he's kind of all over the not not to let the cat out of the back but this album will absolutely beyond the less. Yes because this is one of the greatest albums ever ever questioned. Great Grace's were the great questioning and this is one of those albums. This isn't that shut up. What would you just? Can We rewind that way? The second Liselis arm. We have enough technology. One way as seamless further up with Florida you're bouncing rhythms a good. There's that line I love that long. A your So he's whispering into the microphone. Subtle this down Tom Sawyer. Low No way three-piece. Banner here this you charge and I don't know that there's a more beautiful part of any song ever made in his timing coming from his throat in the middle of a me singing from deep within four people on this because the Oregon. Yes okay there is. There's an organ but that's not a Hammond Salem. Though that's just like it's Oregon as he wants to get there he's back to the whole. Sometimes man gets carried away this much too blind to see the damage is done. It's it's a very sad very introspective. Thanks very good. He's going to ramble. Slow destroying pattern is unusual soon. He's playing tripping leopold straighten. Whoever that girl was a she didn't go over there. Kurt seat ever see? How dare you do that? The Jeff Buckley. How Dare You make gentlemen? I just lived R. I F. O. Segments are now. We're even with the Braga all Andrew Dice Clay on the hell. No if I don't even notice biker jacket I if it feels we're just gonNA feel we've got the next tour. We're explicitly earlier or later us. Gospel Church yes. Yes like grigory chance right. Yeah it's it's unusual. There are a lot of backing vocal tracks going on on that you really noticeable a lot more with the headphones on. Us lasting his control his both controlled field a break the way he does. I've tried that you know in my car. Usually when I'm driving somewhere I can do. I can see. I know that he might seem like this. It's a rare talent. It you get out of here against like Jeff. Luckily I don't know. Tell us the word right like you. Don't you. Don't learn that from vocal coaches like. He can either sing like that or you can't.

"Soles started and then it went to pet. Sounds yet the balloon. Winter Revolver before Brian Wilson could get the smile sessions how they put out Sergeant Paratrooper. Which is the kind of the iconic layering album of that time to enter it. If you will. It was so good that he literally went insane in spent ten years eating ribs stakes writing exactly. But that's a. It's a great selection. I it's so like you said it's my TB sheets on those those because it doesn't it's like one of these things is not like the other because it doesn't really go along with all the other selections but it's just it's fantastic song yeah Is that the only song this? There's two keyboards playing. That's gotta be sympathetic. There's GonNa be another keyboard on the list at some point. How okay okay. All right well. That was my number seven. This must be the place talking heads. Speaking in tongues out now even naive Melody Melody. GotTa be in their naive melody. Nineteen ninety-three to the other thing is the quality of the recording on that that is so so solid if you listened any their eighty stuff like all of their albums like remain light which we will talk about point like the recording quality. Just how amazing everything sounds really unbelievable? And that was recorded within a year of the replacements. I mean I went back to back eighties here. We sure did and they are. They could not be more light years apart and how they sound good. They remind me before. We do our our second episode of this to go back and do an average of our songs of the year so we find out what the average is year is. That would be interesting. Wouldn't it yeah? I mean because I've got one that's going to throw it off because it was within the last Safar. I mean we've represented obviously the nineties. We represented the eighties a couple times. We've got the seventies you had the sixties is a lot going on here. It's kind of all over the place all right. So that's that's six songs. Should we take a break? Yeah why not yeah? Let's take a little break. Yeah all right. Attention.

"Thought it would be remaining light. I thought one of my favorite albums of all time. I thought it'd be once in a lifetime and so when I saw this I went. This must be the place naive melody. What in the hell is that? I like. This is your sheets of the. I absolutely is right as soon as I heard it. I went under the song. Yeah and that's the thing is just it's just a great song right and there's so many other songs on here. We talk about where I could go. I love the guitar. Part of the drums are great. Here's the story behind the lyrics and this has all that it's just a great song you know what I was thinking. The songs top ten songs which was really hard for me to do in the first place and ordering them was almost impossible but I knew that the song had to be on of those songs that I just love listening to. What is the naive middle naive melody? Okay well let's burn talking about the fact that he thought that the melody was so simplistic and the song that it was it. Would never work was naive to think about the rest of their. Kettles you do with it that says. Ou will yeah. I love the Guitar Revenue Background. Very minimalistic up all those non sequiturs and they said they make sense in the ordering. Put him out Bro. That sound. That's there so much a lot of sense. There's a wall of sound there is bass player is really holding down this group and just driving the whole thing and you got a car parts. That are dancing and now and of course two different keyboards. I think at different times. So of course voice is chronic. I kinda clear four for the MTV generation is there but once in a lifetime. They're where they need the other. I mean it's I wouldn't say it's like Billie Jean for new waivers. It'd be very unfair right. Yeah you were just doing the Wacky wacky thing from the video. You can't see it over the microphone so we don't have cameron. Thank God we. Y- I'd have to put pants on that field before in the synthesizer yeah sounded kind of stupid but there. He's actually playing while he's doing it and like incorporating it as like a master of that instrument it's Qatar back in again it's simple deterrent. Parts very well structured and very. Well everything is layered layered in there so nicely there is. There's last your notes. Have it burn? Was the one point keyboard Tim doing it. Yeah I think so. Have you heard of this stuff that he's done to statements with any Clark? No I don't think so I think you did you send me something wanted. Yeah I think he's a highland partner'll so she's a Dallas for everything goes back analysis of course the center of the Universe Aga- Dallas cowboys and Pearl Jam Programs. Made Up Story Real fixture on You. But yes she's from Lake Islands and they're obligated together. I mean it's it's of course. All David Byrne stuff all kinds of he somehow. He's able to do things at all. Kind of sound like David Byrne but no of it really suffers from saying song is if that makes sense no absolutely absolutely but it all sounds like him because I think his voice and his style is so unique so distinctive. You're never going to not think it was David Byrne stuff going on here seat. Brian Wilson admitted right. Now that Brian listened to a Genius Ryan Wants. It definitely had a lot of influence on a lot of these reporters genius genius. There's Jason overused but you but to your point. A lot of this like the layering. That's going on here would not probably exist without the influence of that album. So rubber.

"I said I wasn't gonNA play only songs so we don't get sued but it's really hard not see when you talk about your favorite song right there in the background. Fun fact on that Song Was nominated for a Grammy. And they never played it. Live with lanes daily really not once but it was nominated. I think they won. I think they were nominated for three or four grammys. I don't I don't remember exactly foot that they did win. Why didn't they play live? Well they they kind of broke up. I mean they released one more album after this. Which if you get this on the vinyl reissue I have. The second album comes with it. It's got a few tracks on a couple that were on the radio and once again more cousteau guitar and that kind of stuff as well but they have never played it live on when they hired her had a new singer a couple of years ago. If you'LL REMEMBER. And they played it live with him but never played. It live with lane interesting so I I had a my notes that the song don't follow was the b side on the single which is correct Probably my probably favorite Alison chainsaw really loved follow. Yeah is it the harmonica part that you're right? Yeah it cuts into the kind of bluesy section. Although I think are kind of I kind of feel like the mad season album was because Layne staley's there right because he's singing and I have taken cantrell wrote those songs. I think it was Mike from Pearl Jam. Macree from Pearl Jam Guitar Player and I think he wrote les written some of them too. I don't remember entirely. They had two hits like to off that one album that both very popular time that was that was the Get everybody off of substantive recording supergroup. Staley sometimes do so. He doesn't get. I think Macri had a drinking problem and so they all got together and did a sober album or something. I don't that's another story. I'll have all the details. We're all that but I I really like that. When when the mad season album came out I remember being so confused because I thought it was an allison chains album. But it wasn't right because lanes voices so it's obviously the lead singer of chains right like nobody else sounds like that. So here's what did they release a new album. I missed that. How did that happen? Didn't sound like the rest of the band though what's going on. Yeah at some point. I know we're going to do a deeper dive Alison Chase. I can almost guarantee some of their albums will show back up. What one of the things that I always thought was interesting was when they did their in. Tv unplugged yes session was that. Layne Staley kept sunglasses on the entire time entire time. He was just completely out of gas. Absolutely yeah it's unbelievable and I. I remember going back and watching that and seeing that. He hid the lyric sheet in front of him. Right in thinking man. The Guy can't even remember his own. We've done that when we played shows having there. But we're not professional. Johnny Grandma. That's right. Maybe that's what I need. I need a grammy nomination. A grammy nomination would probably have really iron things that would have done. It would have gone on really well. Yeah I think so okay. Well that was my number nine to stay away. Alison Chains Jar. Fly On us all right so my number nine is got to be one that. I know that you have probably. I don't know if you've spent many hours. I have listened to the song probably have. I'll bet it has been a lot. Yeah my number. Nine Song is Y Y Z from rush. And it's not the recorded from moving pictures from exit stage and you live the live version that was recorded in nineteen eighty nine hundred eighty nine hundred eighty s. What I have in Glasgow Scotland now. Here's here's the thing. I'm a drummer And so as a drummer new hurt the appeared is he's got he absolutely is if you talked to any of those cats Danny Carey from tool. Who who really is probably my favorite music and I were talking. Earlier is my favorite musician. Because he took what he was doing. An amplified it But it all came from Neil because in the seventies when it was You Know John Bonham and Keith Moon. That were these really solid drummers to have heavy heavy like really got dropped like this heavy like pounding tosses and rhythms whereas Neil those little. He did that too but he was. He had some real some real class and we'll finesse technique. He had he had technique like no one ever had So what what made Keith Moon and John Bonham? So great is that they always knew where the I'll talk about this a lot. They always knew where one is. The best remers know where one is. the guys that play with. Willie Nelson They always say Willie has his own time signatures. He plays he could be doing is he. Doing I'll give me a Willie Nelson what's wrong with me. I can't think of Willie Nelson Song all of them. It's the same all around four four three four. All you have to count right But Willie Nelson as he puts six beat somehow into four four four measure. So he's the best worst musician. Yeah and so all of his his backup guys are always going to say that you have to know where one is. Never no one will. He's going to be there. You just hit one and eventually willio. You'll catch up with you at the very end right right Neil is different neo. Played All of the notes that everyone else skipped or didn't know was there There are two types of rhythm. There's the African rhythm and there's the South American rhythm One is the triplet. The other is all sixteenth notes. Somehow Neal was able to play one on one hand and one of the other so he was playing with cal. Poly Rhythm and so if you wish once again your your boy from tool. That's where he got it absolutely as it absolutely. Yes I'M GONNA. I'm GonNa Jerome here on the table folks. And so if you'll follow along at home if you if you play a triplet stick with your if you play a triplet with your right hand which is three Three notes per beat. Which is One-two-three One-two-three One-two-three right and you play eighth notes with the right hand which is one and two and three and you put those together. Sounds like this at which it to you folks at home. Sounds like a bitter but my right hand is doing three notes. My left hand is doing to. Which have there's no in world though she'd go together? It's not an easy thing to do. That's what neal was doing Y Y Z is Morse code for The airport Toronto and the Guitarist Alex License was a pilot in so the three of them were flying back and they could hear the Morse code coming in over the beacon that was going Dada Dada that Outta. You know but it was doing it in this very specific rhythm darnold. I don't don't don't don't don't while they're doing that. Neil hurt his back there and there you go. And that's why why is he. The original recording Y Y Z. Did Not have a drum solo. This one does this. One has not just any drum solo. I can go back to buddy rich. I can go back Charlie. Angelini I can go back to eighty recorded drum solo and there's no better drum solo on the planet then the one from from exit stage left. I think you're probably right about there. Is What's.

"The sorry. Sir that comes up to see her. Who are Julie Baby? It Ain't natural feud midnight is a coup. It ain't cool phoebe criminal down.

"That and think the same thing I used to just like just how thick that semi was. It was almost like it was the base. Yeah there's no other way tone is strange. Yeah I wonder where can I get harder to Gibson right? He was pretty much less. Paul Guy For most of led Zeppelin he was a less in. I'm assuming that's a list Paul. But it's big and thick and heavy like you would expect but yeah the tone is all. It's it's very different and there's nothing else on the album. Sounds like that not. I don't know the disease else in the catalog of sound think there is. I mean you have Jamaica. That was definitely the Caribbean thing going on again with that. But that's a Harpsichord back once again once again. They had a lot of time on their hands in the media so bold Jones in an unlimited budget jump all played everything everything under the sun so sure he can do anything he wanted to know. What is she didn't pick anything from CODA which was out now. Huge fan of that album. Actually that's it. That's that's my number ten outlets a good one man. Yeah I remember as a kid like looking at that that album cover in just had. It's cool thing that Scipio tone and we have the vinyl vinyl comes in the. It's like the reissue. It's like a brown paper bag really. Yes I'd like. There's this Brown paper bag and you pull it out and then you've got the actual album sprinkle in to this day last thing that I could not walk into a store in see somebody go through the wrong door not thinking through the door in my head. It's hot dogs. What what a terrible terrible thing to have in your mind does dog. Hot Dog on the rain with a hotdog will forever live in. Infamy okay. Well let's let's let's turn this over to you. Yeah but last note on that though I remember the very first time when I got that tape. I remember telling about mom because when I got that tape. I think it was in fifth or sixth grade and I really got into. That's probably when I discovered it as well. I got into rock and roll big time and what I knew. Rock and roll was led Zeppelin because I listen to Q. Will Not even Dallas and they were the classic rock station. I would listen constantly for stairway just looking at it. Just because you're so perfect right. I want to hear the song and so when mom when my mom starts going for Christmas gifts when I was in fifth or sixth remember what year it is. I WANNA led Zeppelin type. And so she goes. I think probably got the cheapest one that she can get which was into the outdoor. Yeah but I remember the very first time that I put it on in that. When in the evening comes through backward masking and it's like a like a helicopter is descending yeah and then when they kick in that in the evening you know here. I was I was just in love. That is a good truck and one more thing on led Zeppelin since As much as I like this band they do have to answer for all of the hair metal in the eighties. Whitesnake is directly the fault of led Zeppelin. They have to answer for that at some point. Well it's what did you say David Coverdale and Jimmy page album. Remember that album. Oh yes I do in the early nineties. Yeah Yeah that's right coverdale page. Yeah and it was a shake your tree. It was not very good but it was covered it all but nobody heard anything from page. All Zeppelin fans. We're happy to have him back on tape. You know all right well so So that's your number ten saw whenever new? The Rangers led Zeppelin into the outdoor. So my number ten song. I thought this was out there right. Yeah but I gotTa tell you the the background so Van Morrison at most people know him from the pop glorious. Gloria was one of the first ones that that hit big brown eyed girl girl huge all age limits. I can listen to the Moon dance backwards and forwards my my aunt. Marcy loves Tupelo honey her favorite song and I love that song too and I can listen to that over and over and over but this is not new dance. This is not into the mystic. Now this is a song called. Tb sheets okay. After confess for you're going further. I had never heard this song really ever until you put it on like this is one of those skipped over thing so so thanks for opening my eyes. Yeah so this is a this was a van. Morrison in nineteen sixty seven from the album. Blow your mind and it was when he was first coming over from the UK. Any add this skiffle group. So here's the background on the song. Tb sheets. This is the saddest song you've ever heard. It is so sad because it's written from the. It's the dialogue that you only hear from one side of a young man who is trying to be the coolest guy in the world. Now keep in mind it's sixties Zeitgeist and so there there are hip and cool and he's trying to be a blues man. You Know Miles Davis as cool. When was this report is nine hundred? Sixty seventy seven. So it's like I think it was probably there's probably pre Psychedelia you know. Obviously this is before sergeant pepper But it was all right on the hinges of Charleston. Guess and Miles Davis and You know all all these cool jazz cats. Everything is just real cool so yup keep in mind that this is a kid who wants to be that cool in. His girlfriend is sequestered. Which is ironic that. We are in our shelter in place in the twenty twenty but his girlfriend has died from tuberculosis. And so this is a kid who has stopped by to see his girlfriend who is sequestered in her room. Because she is about to die and he's trying to act cool and he is going to see this girl. So the TB is she is okay so he even says and he says I off at it by the way to courts throughout this entire Samsung. I believe it's a back and forth. That's it that's the entire song is g so it's a typical skiffle. Blue Type Song Right Not much to it. But he tells her story out her name is Julie. Juliet natural free to cry in the midnight. Like this so he's telling her because he is so immature that he can't deal with the fact that she's dying he doesn't WanNa be there but he stopped by to see his girlfriend whose dying and she just wants him to be there and be cool you know. Just just sit here and be with me but for him. All He's thinking about US himself. Gotcha Gotcha and so. There's a part of this. That really makes me. I in enrages me almost here because I think about the young girl that she she's GonNa die. She is on her deathbed. And he's like I can smell your TV sheets. It smells like death in here. Opened the window open the window. Drink water something and then he says at one point the song I'm GonNa have mumbles. Come around later on with some line. So that that's how he's going to help her out. Some line always going to send somebody was so he's willing to sit mumbles around later on. Maybe he's he's coming back himself. He had his visit for the day. So this is TV sheets from Van Worse. This is probably my deepest carmine tire list right. It's a deep one. This is worse than.

"There's a lot of components the song this. There's a couple of things on this list that have the distinction of being one of my favorite songs. And they're also on an album that I don't really care for. The rest of this album is very difficult for me to get through. It's it's so funny that you say that I had this album on tape right and through my research. What I found was this was an album that was pretty much John Paul Jones and Robert Plant. Yeah I think a John I may get incorrect but I think bottom was drunk all the time and I think Jimmy Page was doing his own thing. Heroin listen it was a seventy rockstars. Whatever but yeah that that's correct so they basically jump all Jones who also played numerous instruments for the band and keyboard one of them as I understand. It had gotten a new organ and was very infatuated with playing it and the sound of it so a lot of that album is these long extended. Oregon jams which I find almost unlistenable. What what's your least favorite song? Hot Dog dog so much hotdog or Carousel Rumba. It okay that would have been my that would have been the cheesy but Hud was where you can call them. What the Hell is that doing on some nineteen seventies British rock band's Album Chicken Pickin Guitar and I? It sounds like an outtake that Leonard. Skinner decided not to record. Because it was too hillbilly for them. But you know it's funny that that that you mentioned Care Seromba though that you mentioned that John Paul Jones is playing Oregon. Because there's definitely an Oregon sentenced.
