    We have a jokes thread, so thought a music thread is required. I saw Sam, Simon and Mark discussing their guitar´s. Mart and Kevin have discussed a Podiatry Anthem somewhere. Robert has said you can tell alot by the music they link to in their Posts.... So I though a new thread which people can list their 5 Favourate Rock songs. Links to You Tube are encouraged. Yes Simon you can put 5 U2 songs in if you want !!.
     
  2. Heres my 1 list.

    1. Powderfinger -These Days Powder finger These Days

    2.Neil Young - Rocking in the free world Neil young Rocking in the free world with pearl jam

    3. Pearl Jam- Better man Pearl jam Better man

    4. Temple of the dog- Wooden Jesus Temple of the dog wooden Jesus

    5. Nirvana- Smells like teen Spirit nirvana smells like teen spirit

    As you can see " the seattle sound" is still big in my house. Some vintage clothing chain in the UK has said that Grunge is now Vintage. I´m getting old.
     
  3. Niiiiice thread.

    Don't know what the purests define as "rock" but here are mine.

    Iron Man - Black Sabbath. Not the most melodic of songs but for sheer visceral emotion it can't be beat

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GECit4oSpbk

    Don't Fear the Reaper, The HIM version (Blue oyster cult original is good too). For the guitar solo in the middle

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYuQBfXaZd4

    Fear of the Dark - Iron Maiden. For the changes in pacing Live versions better than album versions IMVHO

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PieS0zG228A

    Evanescance - Bring me to Life. Because it is just so darn moving

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wr3APrUQ7jY

    Re-arranged - Limp Bizkit. Because the "angry white boy" genre needs representing and because its so easy to relate to (for me)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QWOc0HnItM

    Looking forward to other peeps!

  6. On a side note does anyone( without using the search engines) know what Joy Division were named after. A beer for the 1st correct answer if we ever meet at a conference or course in the future.
     
  7. Too hard and changes by the day. So I'll give you my daily favourite, each day I remember to. Today's top-copy is for driving to:

    Deep Purple- Highway Star, live version from the album "Made in Japan"

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KgZSnAkQc4c

    While your in driving mode have "speed king" by the same band
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Djwv-M_saU&feature=related

    Buy the album "Made in Japan" play it in your car, then speak nicely to the traffic officer who has just pulled you over as he says something like "please step out of the vehicle"...

    Back tomorrow with something different.

  13. The down load photo does tend to give it away, But I owe you a beer I guess. Good work that man .More music trivia as we go.

    A bit from the bio of Joy Division.


     
  14. You see Wendy, you've got three AC/DC tracks in there and they are all post Bon Scott. You got to look back to tracks like "shot down in flames" "beating around the bush" "rosie" "let there be rock" bad boy boogie" "girls got rhythm".... need I go on.

    Thin Lizzy- Live and dangerous- whole album

    And if anyone mentions anything by Iron Maiden after Paul Di'anno left- they want ****ing- Phantom of the opera and Iron Maiden BTW , in fact the whole debut album. Bruce Dick never cut the mustard- he used to wear an executioners mask in Samson- very poor late '70's metal- still have a single by them somewhere. I've got my eye on you Isaacs.
     
  15. I didn't have a personal photo, so i had to really on t'interweb- honest guv

    What have Joy Division and U2 got in common?
     
  16. While we are putting out threats in the nicest possible way. If anyone puts
    in their top 5. Keep your door locked cause I´m sending round the boys.
     
  17. Germany and that little bloke called Adolf.
     
  18. Here´s one for you Simon. U2 stated as a cover band which band did they play covers from ?
     
  19. Martin Hannett produced Joy Division and had started working with U2, he produced 11 o'clock tick tock and was lined up to produce their debut album, but Ian Curtis decided to kill himself and U2 went with Steve Lilliwhite instead.

    In terms of covers U2 have covered songs throughout their career and continue to do so, you could be referring to The Clash or several others from this era- depends on your source of information.

    Actually as a point of pedantry, by the time U2 became U2 as oppose to the Larry Mullen Band or The Hype- they were writing their own material and so weren't a "covers band" at all.
     
  20. I just learnt something.Actually that was all new to me. I saw an interview with Bob of Boom Town Rats fame before he became Sir Bob. He said that when they 1st started out as a band they were doing Boom Town Rats covers and that they were so bad he had to ask them to stop. He then laughed and said now he tries to get them to play his songs.

    Only two that get me into an altered state of consciousness? are ZZ Top's "Le Grange" and Pavarotti's (no one else's) "Nessum Dorna"!

    Honourable mentions to Blind Willie Johnson, Son House and my favourite electric guitarist has always been Steve Morse!
     
  22. Opera ain't rock Mark. If he's having opera, I'm having Jazz.
     
  23. Lock your doors Mark the Boyz may be on the way. We are a rocking thread here.

    I admit the AC/DC tracks are post Bon Scott however only had my CD collection to hand as vinyl up in attic:eek: "Rosie" was the 1st AC/DC track I owned but only able to choose 5 so had to stop somewhere - not included Whitesnake/Bruce Springsteen/Gillan Band/Deep Purple/Terravision etc etc......;)
     
  30. Look at it as revision Wendy, go find your vinyl, re-listen to it, then tell me that Bon wasn't better.;) Moreover, tell me that the vinyl doesn't, somehow, feel better- that big 12" disc, the gatefold sleeve........

    We'll have Kirby with his black light out before the day is done...

  34. Too funny, Simon. This was my favorite song for a short while......listened to that song an awful lot for a few weeks.......but that was in 1975!:drinks
     
  35. Belinda:

    I voted for this song as the "all time number one song of all time" for a local radio station survey here in Sacramento in 1974.:drinks

    Black Dog was another one I voted for as #1 during those high school years.
     
  36. Never was able to get one of those ultraviolet lights.....couldn't afford the cost of it back in those student days when I had no money for such frivolous things. However, one of my friends had one....he used it to light up his black light posters of Jimi Hendrix.

    Jimi (Purple Haze), Janice (Piece of my Heart), Doors (Light My Fire), Jefferson Airplane (White Rabbit), CSNY (Woodstock)...........those were the days of real rock 'n roll.....you kids just don't know what you missed!

    When I saw this thread title I instantly knew it depended for its success on Twirly's entrie(s). And after perusing Twirly you haven't let us down!
    For my part, in the late 60's of the Easybeats, whose rhythm guitarist, George Young, was AC/DC's Angus & Malcolm's elder brother; The Loved Ones "Ever Lovin Man", and the Masters Apprentices!
    Went for my first live in 1970! I remember, later, The Saints with their "I'm Stranded",
    Lou Reed, Leonard "I should have slit my wrists years ago" Cohen, Chain, the NZ'ers the La De Dahs (still the loudest group I've ever seen), the 69'ers (at the Arts Factory, off Hyde Park, Sydney, being chased by sharps and skinheads those were the days!)
    I've got 3 LP's of AC/DC. In fact if you look at the "It’s a long way to the top if you want to rock'n'roll" video clip on the back of a truck in Melbourne you'll see my middle sister, Cherie, following on the footpath! MY ONLY CLAIM TO FAME! In my small collection I've got LP's (thats vinyl kids) of Zeppellin, Cream, The Band.
    And I can always watch/listen to Johnny Rotten on 'Anarchy' and 'Vacant' (didn't care much for Sid). There.

    2. Black Sabbath - Fairies Wear Boots
    3. Midnight Oil - Best of Both Worlds
    4. The Police - King of Pain
    5. Quincy Jones - Ai No Corrida

    Anyone else got any good phono kit? It's the only was to appreciate music...
