Yea this is fun playing discovery. Most of these I would have never bought. Enjoying them all.
I remember hearing this song as I would be driving to Vegas thinking I would find gold check out the dancers
Nice Nasty women
One of the stranger groups i had heard a few times in the day....
And then there's this. haunted me since I first heard it. We may be getting there soon.
Change it up a tad... or two
I got to that song from this album which I have. It's one of the ones i will be searching for as I dig in the box. It's a double album i did not play much. The Youtube version here sounds like crap.
Those are some really well produced videos. The Bread is a real pleasure. Been a fan of Midnight oil. I think I may have posted a bunch of their stuff here too. The Styx song is great . I did not know they did this one. An then there's always Kansas. Put them on all the time with Renaissance.
I think they are cut from the same cloth.
Jazz-ee,blues,rock and roll...that was a nice set of picks.... Sett
In honor of 19 consecutive wins by the Cleveland Indians.
Hey Nineteen -- Steely Dan
A couple of his friends in Fleetwood Mac (Stevie Nicks & Lindsey Buckingham) helped out on this record. Great song.
Good call. This guy has been around a long time according to Wikipedia.
My picks for Tuesday, September 12, 2017:
Beach Baby -- First Class. Released in 1974 at the end of the "beach music" era.
Fool (If You Think It's Over) -- Chris Rea
My Life -- Billy Joel. I played this song over and over and over when it came out in 1978. Was it really that long ago?
Build Me Up Buttercup -- The Foundations
The Cleveland Indians tied the American League record with their 20th consecutive win, a 2-0 victory over the Detroit Tigers.
My Town -- Michael Stanley Band. Ah, MSB, the North Coast's own and favorite band. Such great memories...
And a live version from 2001 with Cleveland Indian highlights. To this day, I can't figure out why Michael Stanley Band never made it big outside of Northeast Ohio. They put on great live shows.
My picks for Thursday, September 14, 2017: A few childhood favorites.
Me and My Arrow -- Harry Nilsson
Seasons in the Sun -- Terry Jacks
Puff the Magic Dragon (Live) -- Peter, Paul & Mary.
My Hero, Zero -- Schoolhouse Rock
Monster Mash -- Bobby Pickett
Pulled a pick from the pile of Albums i have been buying on Ebay over the years. One of my favorite artists. This is from a LP i have never heard till now. Enjoy
<< oops! originally posted on the wrong thread - now how could THAT have happened!? >>
a tippa the hat to my current state:
"...Ro-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-o-olll aa-nother one
Just like the other one..."
--the fraternity of man, Don't Bogart Me, 1968.
Just spent -- notice I did not say "blew" -- almost the entire day catching up on this thread.
Be careful what you ask for ... . Here's one that a roommate I had between marriages introduced me to. Classical music buffs may be reminded of Mozart's Ein Musikalischer Spaß (A Musical Joke).
Your mention of Eric Clapton back on Page 2 (Post #31) reminded me of my favorite song of his.
And your TV show themes posted on Page 3 (Post #47) have encouraged me to include one of my favorites, not just for the theme itself but also for the show.
Speaking of classical music I offer, as my contribution of that genre, the most beautiful piece ever composed for solo piano IMHO.
Another genre not yet represented here is jazz, at least my definition of it. I have selected Dave Brubeck as a representative thereof. While Take Five is the signature track of his signature album Time Out he did not compose it, and he basically only accompanies other members of his quartet in the performance of the piece. Hence my selection of a piece he did compose and which was my introduction to 7/4 time despite having been musically inclined since early childhood, both listening and playing. (According to the notes on the album the chuckle at the end of the track is that of drummer Joe Morello giving a verbal fist pump for the group having made it through the track's complicated ending.)
Well if dang you're buzzed stay the heck away from this one.
