  • 1 month ago

    Excellent question!

    So, the question no one asked:

    "What song would you be sorry to pass over if you didn't listen past the first 30 seconds?"

    Answer:

    Seriously, the tempo changes in this song are AMAZING! If you don't listen to the whole song, you'll never know what you're missing.

    Damn, Livin', you're reading my mind. A song from the eighties by a singer named Nik Kershaw.

    Something from this band!

    I don't know if you like jazz/blues, but this band is awesome and their vocalist is great.  In two of the three videos I'm posting, she's got no mic, no soundboard, nothing...it's just her belting it out on a street corner, and she still sounds amazing.

    Unfortunately, the jazz section of YA is pretty dead, and when it does occasionally wake up, it's usually for questions about jazz styles and artists that I'm not into.

    • Hi guys! Brandon, this is perfect man. It does have a band you may be familiar with all over it- This Mortal Coil. Our friend Elizabeth Fraser sometimes sang for them. Hope you've got an awesome weekend planned mate.

    Aloha Livin’!

    “Secondary Waltz” - Mark Knopfler 

    Very quirky song from the “Kill to Get Crimson” solo album.  The premise of the song is the students at a boys’ school are being taught how to waltz by their rugby coach.  The students from a nearby girl’s’ school will be coming for the annual Christmas party and the young gentlemen will be required to waltz with the young ladies at the party.

    • Aloha 'Cain. Wow. One wonders did Mark Knopfler conceive of this song? Really does sound traditional, so full credit to him if he did.

    Lick My Love Pump by Spinal Tap.

    • Obi, I was already chuckling when I cut and pasted this title to view it. I laugh again at the end of this video, that's like a musical Easter egg. Cheers.

    Erik Satie - Gymnopédies

    Jazz pianist Bill Evans song "Peace Piece" had quaint similarities. Blood, Sweat & Tears did a variation of Gymnopédies by way of guitar and flutes on their second album entitled  "Variations on a Theme by Erik Satie (1st and 2nd Movements)", a 1:28 beautiful piece.

    Can't say I ever got into classical music but this Satie piece definitely caught my ear by way of B,S&T. That's how great that band was from Pop, Rock, Jazz and the rest of the musical works of history.

    Got to love it, Music! It's what makes life bearable.

    As you will hear, Satie plays completely different interpretations throughout the 15:46 minutes. Worth every last second. Although the opening part for me is the best.

    • Great post Vambo. At the start I though, well we already have John Fahey, but as this progressed it was clear this guy is a different beast. I enjoyed the dark sort of ominous vocals. Thanks man.
