Hi guys,

Here's a video I threw together chronicling 50 years of pop and rock -

Evolution of Song

It was very interesting to explore the progression of song writing and production techniques since 1962, but incredibly difficult to re-create!

I'm a self taught musician and as such lack the ability to read music, so what you hear is pretty much the music as I hear it... (he says tongue in cheek!)

I hope it is of interest to some of you.
Ian

Great job, some great transitions right there.

Louis Armstrong with Zeppelin following was perfect --- good Bad Company too.



Only thing you are missing is Joy Division, and Prince I think.

Thanks ThinkingCap! Can't believe I forgot about the external video clip option!

Glad you enjoyed the video.

Very impressive with the selections.
You are quite the musician, also.
Bravo!

It would be nearly impossible to include everyone's favorite songs...
I definitely hear 95% of the ones I know.

Nice job, and keep up the good work!

Very nice. You have a really versatile voice. I KNEW you were going to do Supertramp for '79! But you need to work on your Pete Townshend windmills haha. I was also hoping to hear you do Ric Ocasek's voice too. Also, why no Barenaked Ladies for your early 90's epoch?

Very cool project. Thanks for sharing with us.

Thanks for the comments guys.

It sounds like I need to do another one! That's the trouble with a project like this, you could do 10,000 versions and none of them would be the same.

Prince definitely needs some attention, and yes possibly some Barenaked Ladies. In fact, choosing the songs was the most difficult part of the whole process.

Yeah, I understand you are faced with many difficult choices when spanning 50 years of pop! You made an excellent video though.

It's that you are so talented we'd all like to see more--we're not criticizing haha

Haha, thanks again for the kind words! It'll be tough doing another one as I'll have to aim for bigger and grander things!
