Music Fleeting Thoughts

Postby somitomi » Fri Jan 06, 2017 8:33 pm UTC

Recently I noticed a few songs, that really reminded of an artist other than the one actually performing it. I'm bad at explaining, so I'll cut to the chase right away:
  • Jethro Tull - Rocks on the Road might as well be written by Mark Knopfler. I've seen the whole album being compared to Dire Straits (similarly to Crest of a Knave) so that's hardly anything new. Still, this song made me pause it once to think about what makes it sound so much more like Dire Straits than Jethro Tull.
  • Bryan Adams - Don't Even Try sounds like a Beatles song to me (and my mother), mostly like those on the Red Album. The voice would give this one away though.
I know there are thousands of these out there, but I still find this neat.

I'm calling this "Fleeting thoughts", because this doesn't really need its own thread but it also doesn't seem to fit elsewhere. Hope it's okay with everyone...

Why does every video on how to play bar-chords have some dude with fucking MASSIVE hands telling me that you don't need big hands or long fingers to play bar chords?

Bar chords are bullshit. Noone is able to hold down six steel guitar strings with only their index finger.

I always liked singing in high school choir even though I was never any good at it. Singing is fun! Another musical fleeting thought: There's a pop song where a woman entices a man to, "put his body on top of her." I never knew love songs were allowed to be so explicit? I guess it doesn't technically have swearing so it's A-OK.

This sure seems to be the case. But then the whole "geting all five fingers into precise positions frequently having to maneuver them around each other, and doing it fast and clean enough to actually work in a musical context" thing is kind of eluding me to begin with. I don't want to just give up, but dammit, there's a reason I took to bass rather than guitar at first.

I love the show Empire. Awesome family, awesome songs and drama aplenty. The latest twist with one of their children really shocked me! And apparently love is like a drug and we need to pull the plug. Ha-ha. Brilliant. I love that show so much. Soap operas with singing are cool. :D

I love/hate love songs. Especially the ones about bad relationships. Breaking up songs are fun too. Especially when they trash their partner to the maximum about all their bad habits. But that's part of why I hate love songs: They get kinda perverse at times. Talking about ruining your ex-girlfriend's life for breaking up with you or whining that she wasn't "drunk enough to have sex with yet" or talking about your kinks in as explicit of detail as you can do. It's just kinda creepy and weird love song ladies and boys.

I'm listening to all my songs on shuffle and when Sleeping on the Sidewalk started I thought it was a ZZ Top song.
It's also kind of odd how long it takes for me to recognise even the artists and I've heard most of these songs many times.

Why-Why-Why-Why does G like Eminem? He's mean to women in all his relationships songs. He yells at Rhianna he's gonna, "tie her down and set her house on fire." He bragged about going number one on a woman Twice. He is a thug and a delicious-delicious rapper. I wish I could purge my Eminem lust from my head forever-and-evermore. Instead I'll just say that he's not the first white boy that tried to rap and despite my loving attentions to his awful music I still believe he's not even the best rapper around.
