  • Rock Masterpieces : Best EP's   4 weeks 6 days ago

    I Know is really fun. B+A too. From the other EPs, I'm quite fond of The House Song, She's The One and Needles In My Eyes.

  • Greatest Albums Extended List [rated 7.8/10+] (in progress)   4 weeks 6 days ago

    Doors is an 8.5/10 for me. Aside from the obvious (Break On Through, Light My Fire, The End) I think Soul Kitchen, The Crystal Ship, Twentieth Century Fox and End of the Night are awesome. That's 7 out of 11 songs ;) The rest of the tracks are enjoyable too though.

    Don't agree one bit about your assessment of Dereck Trucks I'd have him in the top three all day long.

    Hi - I was wondering if you still have this? The RS link no longer works and I can't find it anywhere. Thank you.

    Why do you give The Doors s/t an almost perfect rating? The End and Light My Fire are masterpieces, Break On Through and Crystal Ship and Alabama Song are pretty awesome too. That's 5 out of 11 songs. Do you think the other 6 songs are masterpieces too? I don't understand how The Doors can be ranked above stuff like Bitches Brew, Loveless, Tago Mago and White Light/White Heat.

    The third one is good, I just haven't listened to it enough to form a strong opinion about it.
    When I think of the Beta Band, I think of I Know from the first EP. It might not be their most important or famous song, but I have yet to hear an electronic blues jam as tight as that song.

    I went with 'Dumb and Dumber', though 'Austin Powers' was a top contender for me, too.

  • Songs featuring "heart" in the title   5 weeks 1 day ago

    Longtime country music fans remember the day When Were the songs and the traditional big names were super familiar. With the time it changes. In 1989 there was a new "class" that launched into NEW COUNTRY movement. Names like Clint Black, Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, Travis Tritt,...

    This seems like the go-to place for the island of misfit movies that are just out of reach of being remembered, pretty cool.

    Here's mine. I'm starting to think I'm making this movie up. From what I can recollect, it's an 80s live-action/ animated film. A boy? gets lost in the woods, and shrunken? to the size of an insect. There were evil ants, but also good insects that helped him. The ants were trying to capture him, but in the the end he made it out of the forest safely. Think it took place in a hollow or something.

    Not only is Walter Becker not on this list. Anyone not having him in their top 10 needs to stop listening to music, and try to enjoy an alternative form of art :-)

    And the third EP?

    I haven't heard any of their studio albums in full yet, only a few of the popular songs.

    Please help!! I've been looking for this movie forever. I used to watch it when I was really little, so I don't remember much about it. All I can remember is that it was around Christmas time, there's a lot of snow throughout the movie and the movie revolves around some kind of toy store that's making presents and I think there's some kind of magical toy train in the movie (It's not Polar Express)

  • Why Paul McCartney Sucks!!!   5 weeks 3 days ago

    In this day and age it's rare that a rock n' roll career lasts more than a few years, much less a decade. Of course there are some acts that have lasted the years through fluctuations of styles and genres of music's ever-changing fads. However, few can even come close to bragging of a career that's spanned three decades, as Sir Paul McCartney can.

    :) It was my PhD exam but two weeks before I took it, I decided to study in another country after all. So, the exam became pointless. On the bright side, I listened to Basinski's Disintegration Loops almost 8 hours a day back when I studied seriously for the exam.
    I heard the 3 EP's the day after the exam. What struck me the most was the way Patty Patty Sound is composed. The songs follow some sort of electronica/trance compositional logic (among various other things) yet the music is unlike anything else I've heard. It's weird that the band considers Patty Patty Sound an EP! To me, it qualifies as a great album. I'm sure I'll relisten to it again and again over time. I respect it a hell of a lot.
    But I like Champion Versions better! I don't know why. It's really different and definitely less daring, but the mood is just ... perfect. There are some moments on the first EP that I simply LOVE.
    Have they topped this compilation with any of their studio albums?

  • Ultimate Classic House List (1984-1989)   6 weeks 1 day ago

    I discovered House music when playing the video game Grand Theft Auto San Andreas in a cafe. The game also featured some of these classic house tracks like Marshall Jefferson - Move Your Body, Mr. Fingers - Can You Feel It, Raze - Break 4 Love,Frankie Knuckles - Your Love, A Guy Called Gerald - Voodoo Ray, Steve ''Silk'' Hurley - Jack Your Body and Robert Owens - Bring Down The Walls. I used to hear these tracks while playing the game and I just used to love them like fabulous. They were a great mood lifter. I always used to wonder what kind of music is this and what category of music it falls in. Well now I know it is House music. I also found classic house on YouTube. I am thrilled to find such a big list of classic house music. I will use it to download some tracks from it and make a CD as well. Fabulous list.
