1 The Velvet Underground - The Velvet Underground & Nico
One would be hard pressed to name a rock album whose influence has been as broad and pervasive as The Velvet Underground and Nico. While it reportedly took over a decade for the album's sales to crack six figures, glam, punk, new wave, goth, noise, and nearly every other left-of-center rock movement owes an audible debt to this set. While The Velvet Underground had as distinctive a sound as any band, what's most surprising about this album is its diversity. Here, the Velvets dipped their toes into dreamy pop ("Sunday Morning"), tough garage rock ("Waiting For The Man"), stripped-down R&B ("There She Goes Again"), and understated love songs ("I'll Be Your Mirror") when they weren't busy creating sounds without pop precedent. …

10 Ago 2010, 14:23 de missbarry1. How long have you been a Beatles fan?
Oooh since I was about 9 :)
2. How did you discover the Beatles?
My dad has most of their albums, and I had to sing Yesterday and Yellow Submarine in the choir when I was 9 haha.
3. Which "era" (early, mid or late) do you prefer and why?
That's really hard... I'll have to say mid (65-67) because that's when they were developing as artists.
4. Which album(s) is your favourite and why?
Rubber Soul is my favourite because I love all the songs
5. Which album(s) is your least favourite and why?
Beatles for Sale is pretty blah... they did a lot of covers on that one.
6. What are your top 10 Beatles songs?
01. While My Guitar Gently Weeps
02. I'm Looking Through You
03. I'm Only Sleeping
04. Helter Skelter
05. Love You To
06. When I Get Home
07. Hey Bulldog
08. Across the Universe
09. I Am the Walrus
10. Don't Bother Me
7. Are there any Beatles songs you really don't like? Which ones?
8. What are your views on each of the Beatles' films?
9 Jun 2009, 9:22 de cbprideIn chronological order.
1. All I've Got to Do
From the opening chord to the on-again-off-again drumming to the glorious backing vocals during the choruses, this song is a standout.
2. All My Loving
Any personal meaning this track may have aside, this is a quintessential "I love you and I'll miss you" pop song. Great harmonies.
3. Please Mister Postman
John's vocals are amazing throughout, but it's when the "Wait a minute"s kick in that the song really starts to tug at the heartstrings... and becomes irresistible to sing along to.
4. Komm, gib mir Deine Hand
I took German class for a couple of weeks a few years back. It was too hard for me, so I quit. I wish I hadn't when I listen to this song, because then I could do some translating instead of laughing - lightheartedly and jokingly, of course - at the overall absurdity of it.
5. I Should Have Known Better
I'm a sucker for harmonica. But I didn't really think that "Beatles" and "harmonica"…

2 Ene 2009, 21:55 de RyanCalorelAbout a month and a half ago, I devised a plan to listen to all of the cd's that I have (that are currently in cases). This was because I wanted to listen to things I haven't listened to in a while or ever, really.
The two rules were: the choices must be completely random (I assigned each cd a number and made my calculator choose random numbers - I know, it's quite pathetic), and I have to listen to the entire album all the way through. Other than that, I can add more cd's to the collection, it doesn't matter.
Since I started two months or so ago, the list in the first few posts won't be in the order I listened to them in - just a pseudo-alphabetical order. Anyway...
1) 3 Doors Down - The Better Life
- This was one of the first cd's I ever bought - long before I started playing guitar. When I was listening to it now, I still remembered the words, so it must have made some kind of impact on my past-child-self. However, I no longer like 90's alternative rock, so this was rather boring to sit through. …
13 Nov 2008, 1:44 de DerekBowieI know it's been done before, but the thing is, I've never done it before. So I'm going to write a little something about The Beatles.
I'm not sure when exactly my first Beatles moment was. I don't even remember the first song I heard by them and cared. What I do know is that it wasn't all that long ago, and that the first album I listened to properly was Abbey Road. Gradually I found the rest, and now I'm just missing all of what's before Help! except I Want to Hold Your Hand and Please Please Me.
This is because I got Please Please Me and wasn't all that impressed, really. I mean, I Saw Her Standing There is really good, and Twist and Shout is strangely enthralling (will his vocal chords snap on this chorus? this one? this one?), but the rest I could take or leave. Then, skipping over three albums, the next one I had was Help!, and the situation was similar. Yesterday yes, You've Got to Hide Your Love Away yes (anthology version is better I think though), Help! yes yes yes, but the rest? Meh. …
24 Jul 2008, 21:44 de ogqozoWe all know that all greatest musicians die young. In fact, some of them are great just because they died (Jim Morrison, Ian Curtis etc.). The others, however, are great because they managed to put out some good music before a tragic death. The Beatles managed to put out very much of very good music.
...And they didn't split up because of death. Fuck it. Here are my ten favourite albums of the band:
1. Rubber Soul (UK)
The US release has its tracks changed and sucks so much. The UK version, however, is their greatest masterpiece. I love it for its gloomy, mystic atmosphere. There just isn't a single straight "happy" pop song on this album - they're all kinda sad, mysterious, nostalgic and beatiful. Oh yeah, and In My Life is here - my #1 song to be played on my funeral. It's also the Beatles' best record lyrically - just listen to Norwegian Wood, If I Needed Someone, I'm Looking Through You. It's not true that Paul McCartney had NEVER been writing great lyrics. Paul is left-handed. …
