Spot on Kinglizzard, certain songs will transport me to the time i used to listen to them too, a couple of months ago i listened to this song again
and experienced complete euphoria just from the memories of listening to it
Thanks for allowing me this trip down memory lane.
I was a kid in the 60's and early 70's and the memories that I have of the music of that era was coming home from school and my mum would have the
radio cranked up whilst she was doing the housework. We used to dance around the house together and I remember there was some great tunes from that
era. Here are some of my favourites from 1970 - 1972
I remember all the above early 70's songs as if they were last week.... there are too many to post cos the list goes on and on........ hope they
bring sunshine to your day
and this list goes on and on, not to mention my mom was a die hard Beatles fan, i enjoy them, i really enjoyed the reinvention of them through Across
The Universe... and Lennon, and in particular (everything by him, but...) working class hero is one of the greatest songs of all time
Van Halen- "Panama"
(Most epic use of all time of a kickin' song is in Superbad when the cops trash the car with McLovin, classic "Panama" blaring on screen (not some
crap remake)- couldn't help getting pumped)
Alice in Chains- "Down in a Hole"- best song they did before Staley died, IMHO.
Korn- "Shoots and Ladders". Epic song. Epic sound. Bagpipes. Epic Bass riffs. Thought provoking lyrics. What else can I say?
Nine Inch Nails-"Sanctified"- Best Reznor song. Much better than his "popular" shtuff. Very lowdown
U2- "Where the Streets Have No Name" Such an awesome song.
Could go on and on... Love "Sweet Child O' Mine" by GNR.
"Paul Revere" by Beastie Boys.
"Dr. Feelgood"- Motley Crue
"Sweet Dreams"- Eurythmics
"Hazy Shade of Winter"- Bangles
"Nobody Knows Me"- Lyle Lovett
"Hero of the Day"- Metallica
"This Years Love"- David Gray
"Mad World"- Gary Jules.........................................................................................
Need I go on about the genius of Matthew Bellamy? He learnt Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata in a lunch hour, then proceeded to play it
backwards. Prodigy, anyone? I can tell you how his lyrics seem to birth directly from the heart strings of the most adored writers and romanticists,
or how his music reaches you as echos from the furtherest galaxies unknownst, travelling upon light years and star dust to find you in that blissful
moment. I can't tell you how Muse have changed my life because, quite frankly, it's ongoing. Bellamy, Dom Howard and Chris Wolstenholme are
all brilliant, seasoned musicians. I was lucky enough (so lucky) to have been given the opportunity to see them perform live in Brisbane not 2
weeks ago, and they staggeringly blew my mind.
Sure as f*ck did not disappoint. Thank you, Muse.
Undoubtedly an even bigger influence upon my life, AC/DC has travelled from my blaring through my tape player everyday after school to performing in
person before my very eyes earlier this year. When you're a kid in this country, it's almost sacrilegious to grow up without knowing at least one
Acca Dacca song, but it wasn't until I was a teen that I truly became a conscious listener of them. Before this I was listening to Linkin Park and
such bands and I was pretty depressed, I have to say. In retrospect, I don't think that that music was helping my situation at all. But once I
cottoned on to rock and roll and rhythm and blues, my whole perspective changed. From there everything opened up. AC/DC opened the flood gates. They
are the greatest band on Earth, and I don't care what anyone else says. There is absolutely no competition. Pre- or post Bon Scott.
They're simply the best.
