Iggy Pop - The Passenger
Lou Reed - Take A Walk On The Wild Side
there are probably others
maybe a little over familiar
Especially The Passenger. Feels like it's about two minutes too long. Bm/G/D/A drone drone drone
Though that guitar's a bit "A-wim-ba-way, a-wim-ba-way, the lion sleeps tonight.."
Never understood why so many people think it is the best track off of that album
and Liam's voice sounds particularly flat on the chorus - he holds the last syllable of each line too long.
just trying to think what good songs are on that album?
Oasis: enabling paedos since 1995.
Some Might Say
Don't Look Back In Anger
it only became popular because of drunk lads with proper hair cuts
See also - a band who Oasis probably wouldn't have as dinner guests - Soul Asylum - Runaway Train.
always has been and always will be my answer
The chorus is a bit nursery rhyme and grates a bit.
It's a good innings of a song though, come on.
it ruined that song for me for life.
it's best to stop watching them, as i did a few years ago.
I'd like to get into classical music but as every single classical song has been used on a car advert at some point there's really no point
the worst song ive heard
(it's actually about third of fourth, BUT WHATEVER, FUCK YOU, AND THE COCK YOU RODE IN ON.)
You know the song is toast.
I miss people saying this
I like toast so I'm thinking good?
rather than nice toast
This is a bad thing. You do not want to be toast. Oh no.
You've irked me
More to do with the faux-falsetto delivery than the actual quality of the songs tbf
PS - Bee Gees rule, dick.
for some cult film
Anything that could be described as 'classic rock'.
Angels by Robbie Williams
And anything by Queen.
I absolutely cannot stand that song. I have no clue why it insists on being played at every wedding and at all major events anywhere ever
na na na na na na na thanks
its overplayed, sure. but its a really, really great song. all of it. even that bit.
lots of *wrong* people writing off Queen
Don't Stop Me Now is the worse thing ever. Always seems to get played when no-one's having a good time.
i've got the key i've got the secret etc.
they were crap back then and they are still crap now.
the rhythm of the night
set you free (n-trance)
on a ragga tip
correct re: urban cookie collective (was always crap) - though it's amazing how many times it's mentioned in the ccb house when a key is found
seriously. they are CRAP.
olive's you're not alone
try me out by corona
and a million others
you realise all you're doing is replicating the '80s nights' that used to happen about 10 years ago?
this music is shit.
it's absolutely wonderful music
best compilation album ever
so it redeems itself
DON'T YOU WANT MY LOVINNNN'
(now that's an abysmal song)
some solid gold classics in there (and some utter shit as well)
and when i say like, i would probably say, 'oh yeah, i remember this' if i heard it. no way i would dance to it tho, not even at a wedding.
Swap it for Maxx - No More (I Can't Stand It) and Culture Beat - Anything and we have the best mixtape ever.
that is an amazing song, even now.
The Livin' Joy, Strike, Corona, Snap! and Felix tracks on that CD are all pushing 10/10 with me.
A lot of mid-90s Eurodance/piano house/fairgroundtwattycore etc. walks a tightrope between irredeemable cheese and :cough: "pure pop perfection", but when it's good it's genuinely fantastic. I don't think people "pretend" to like this music - unless it's a deliberately bad troll record that's meant to be a crap guilty pleasure like Aqua or the Vengaboys.
The aggressive bass and keyboard loops (even though half of them copy Beverley Hills Cop) combined with the female diva-ish rave vocals work so well. I can see why some people have said with a straight face that even something as obvious as No Limit is "our generation's Wild Thing - a brilliant stab of gonzo primitivism."
You never see people being sniffy about big chart/club crossovers from the start of the nineties like Ride on Time, Groove is In the Heart or Dirty Cash though. They are themselves bloody awesome, and were probably better musically, but is it something to do with as the 90s progressed, commercial dance music being seen as increasingly gauche and "chavvy?"
but great posting
Got to be eternally grateful for anything that secures The Artist Formerly Known as MPBH's future on these boards.. ;-)
Forget who it's by, it slightly redeems decade-old indie points by sounding like Royksopp
I'm probably with meths on most of this. I mean I can enjoy Pump Up The Jam being on but it's not a song you'd CHOOSE to listen to.
You're Not Alone is particularly bad. At least you could have picked Let Me Be Your Fantasy if you're going for that genre.
Ebeneezer Goode was a joke to play on the radio and tv djs and producers, never meant to be a 'classic' song
Maybe a bit cheesy for modern tastes, but I'd buy a pint for anyone who kept Slack, Aimless and Watereddown's music off the radio
ey ey ba day ba wadladie day
Also, you're wrong.
How Soon Is Now? - The Smiths
Most Led Zep
fuck off 'food
i probably hate it.
but I'll do my best. It starts "da doo dah dah dah"
I AM HUMAN AND I NEED TO BE LOOOOOVVVEED
Just like everybody else does
(Its probably my favourite Smiths song)
I just listened to all of that. Still a good song. Not even TATU can butcher it.
Dickheads aren't they
What's Going On - Marvin Gaye
Paint It Black - Rolling Stones
Sandstorm - Cast
but I still feel like I've pinched it off Jethro.
I really dislike The Beatles
Minnie Ripperton - Loving You
I Will Survive is gash.
i will survive
man, i feel like a woman
it's raining men
i think the DJ thought "i know, let's do a little section for all the divorcees"
but the photographer at a friend's wedding made a video compilation of it soundtracked by 'Under My Thumb' by the Stones.
(They got divorced)
or whatever it's called
fucking pink floyd. load of bollocks.
whichever one is the famous one ("we don't need no education" etc)
And dock a mandatory 2 points off any track rhyming words that end in "ation."
No. Awful. And there's an awkward bit of no dancing. And all boys think they're great when they dance to it at weddings and its all just too much. Stop it.
AND A HAPPY NEEUUU YEAR.
I don't know why I've been to more than one Karaoke in America.
I like it best when they do the actions.
I have put a capital K twice here.
Planet Claire is pretty good.
Rock Lobster is barely tolerable.
Loveshack is an abomination.
Strange band. Roam could well be in my top 10 favourite songs ever. Today I listened to The Girl From Ipanema Goes To Greenland (something like that) and it embodied everything I liked about 80s music.. not sure if it was in a hip and refined or guilty and shoulderpadded way though
What the fuck man?!
is a crime against humanity second only to the Holocaust.
but if you mean Party Hard by Andrew WK then you are wrong.
entirely concur tho
anal pegged james murphy
because they are basically a synthesis of a load of bands I like
with wit and charm and a fat guy in a t-shirt doing all the singing
tbf the first argument I ever had with my wife was about LCD Soundsystem
why do you hate them so?
I'm not sure if it's regarded as a 'classic' but I remember seeing an episode of Jools Holland, possible a Hootenanny, where all the bands were playing it, and it looked like the most forced example of 'enjoying yourself' that I've ever seen.
Possibly it was the Hootenanny, and the reason everyone was pissed off was because they were pretending to enjoy new years eve when in fact it was a thursday morning in november.
i've never seen it so i can't be sure.
and then looking smug with Ry Cooder.
Blowin in the Wind for example
Can't believe nobody has said that yet
Queen or ABBA
almost always terrible
in fact almost all the beatles' most famous songs are terrible
almost everything they did was white boy awfulness
am i gay or just arty and effeminate? who gives a fuck?
Morrissey would NEVER question himself. He is what he is.
Sure, Morrissey was a bellend, but Marr was an all-round good egg, and it was a match made in heaven.
Also: what is "white boy awfulness?"
and can fucking do one
See also: the intro to Dancing in the Moonlight.
losing my religion
(overplayed maybe, but those songs are brilliant)
I only have to hear the intro and I start bleeding from my eyes and teeth.
Just heard it again, sets my teeth on edge.
See also: Doves.
If you ask me, they'd have been better off staying as Sub Sub.
Willing to agree One Day Like This is probably the worst thing they've ever done, though.
Hellish, just hellish!
so people don't have to back up their answers?
it's because I wanted a social board opinion. and 200 replies
Stairway To Heaven then
just 100% pure irritation, what the fuck are people getting out of that piece of shit?
do one, that's a great song
It's just because of the ubiquity on that bloody British Gas ad. I have nightmare visions of Damon rubbing his hands in glee and laughing like Scrooge McDuck as the poor, old and sick are robbed blind for their heating bills.
I used to quite like it.
Until I spent 30+ minutes on hold to British Gas...
The class of summer 2012 think they're untouchable.
I just hope Danny Boyle does something cuntish soon. I'm a bit bored of him being a British national treasure. Someone else should have a go! Same with Bradley Wiggins, but everybody hates him on this forum due to his Mod/Weller worship
Not trolling, it's shit. Boring and shit.
Also, a strong ^this for The Passenger
but at least it is a cast iron classic that you are dissing
discovered the other day that part of the intro is lifted from the kids are alright by the who
I think that song is godawful. It's one of my strongest opinions. It's my real opinion.
Or one of the other songs called 'Come Together'?
so it's obvious I mean the Ongaku Gatas song
I was thinking more of Primal Scream and Spiritualized, both off albums that are widely considered classics.
Also, the fact that Come Together is probably one of the greatest Beatles songs made me unsure.
don't feed the troll
The imagery of John Lennon asking people to "come together over [him]" is one of the grimmest things I could ever imagine.
Only for the wailing bit in the middle, though.
Anything by Van Morrison, really, but Moondance is the one I keep hearing in the supermarket. Makes me want to commit mass murder.
for any twat that said Led Zep or Smiths
