What is it?

and where can I get some >;] >;] >;]


'A movie' and 'Netflix' are your answers.

You're welcome.


A brand of pasta noodles, you can get them at almost any supermarket.

Shadow Lodge

Most florists carry that kind of rose in stock.


Oh noes! Hes after our wimins!

Andoran

It's a brand of makeup/skin care available exclusively at Kohl's Department Store.

A wonderful idea.


I prefer American Thighs

AC/DC - You Shook Me All Night Long .

She was a fast machine,
She kept her motor clean
She was the best damn woman that I’ve ever seen
Had the sightless eyes
Tellin’ me no lies
Knockin’ me out with those American thighs
Takin’ more than her share,
Had me fightin’ for air
She told me to come, but I was already there
And the walls start shakin’, the earth was quakin’
My mind was achin’
And we were makin’ it and

[Chorus:]
You shook me all night long
Yeah honey you shook me all night long

Workin’ double-time
On the seduction line
She was one of a kind, Just mine all mine
Wanted no applause,
Just another course
Made a meal outta me and come back for more
Had to cool me down
To take another round
Now I’m back in the ring to take another swing
And the walls were shakin’, the earth was quakin’
My mind was achin’
And we were makin’ it and

[Repeat Chorus]

[Repeat Chorus]

Nope, not from Taranna.

You have the most peculiar taste in music, I'll give you that.

On one hand you like PiL, which is awesome.
But Grateful Dead make me freaking snore with their hippy good vibrations. Virtually zero mainstream American bands were worth listening to in the '70s. I'm hard pressed to think of one.

You must not have listened to them on the right medication.

Bah, if you can't turn on to both The Grateful Dead and Public Image, Ltd., then you are a fool, Citizen Meatrace!

You're probably also a stooge of the plutocracy. I'm not sure, but it's the only thing that makes sense.

Fixed that for you. :)

Boston, Journey, Clapton, Thorogood, Dylan, the eagles, simon and garfunkle (till the break up), joni mitchel, neil young, alice cooper, skynard, aerosmith.

Of course there were lots of better british bands kicking around - sabbath, led zepplin, deep purple, Iron Maiden etc...

I would have liked this post a little more if it didn't start with Boston and Journey, but, whatever, to each their own.

Taldor

Hey, I bet you like more than a feeling when Nirvana plays it with different words :)

Can't believe I missed Kansas on that list too. Dr Hook as well. And the best of the best, Gordon Lightfoot.

Iron butterfly and The Band was the late 60s so I guess they don't count.

Taldor

Hey doodle have you ever seen Festival Express??

Few things.

1)Eric Clapton is British. But I don't like him either. My evaluation still stands.
2)Simon and Garfunkle broke up in 1970. Therefore my evaluation still stands. Although they also suck balls.
3)Neil Young and Alice Cooper-fair enough, but the rest of that list is pretty craptastic as well.

Of course, in British mainstream in the 1970s you had Led Zepplin, The Who, David Bowie, Roxy Music, T. Rex, Yes, Pink Floyd, King Crimson.

Now, to be fair, the soul charts were still rocking in the USA in the 1970s. And the underground music (Stooges, MC5, all the CBGBs stuff) was amazing. But yeah most of that stuff fails to inspire me with their blandness.


First off, I knew that Citizen Meatrace's anti-Dead position would result in him becoming a stooge of the plutocracy, I just knew it.

Back to serious business:

I find Boston's first record to be pretty enjoyable, but there's quite a deal of nostalgia in that opinion. I don't much care for Journey, but I will probably drive faster when they are on the radio.

I, like The Dude, hate The Eagles.

Festival Express was the shiznit.

I think I like Citizen Meatrace's musical tastes more than Comrade Hawkshaw's but I do like the fact that CH talks about music he likes while CM talks about what sucks balls.

Simon and Garfunkel do not suck balls.

I am glad to see that Citizen Meatrace has at least refined his argument to mean that all white mainstream American seventies band were craptastic, which is good news as it indicates that he is not deaf.

Five great white mainstream American seventies records off the top of my head:

Randy Newman--Sail Away
ZZ Top--Tres Hombres
Cheap Trick--At Budokan
The Cars--The Cars
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers--Damn the Torpedoes

Also, Yes suck balls.

Punk is awesome. Hippie is awesome. I love them both.


Simon and Garfunkle have yet to write a song that doesn't make me either vomit or snore.

Randy Newman is another offender. How I despise him. Especially his voice, which does to me what Mary Hart's does to Kramer.

The last 3 are pretty alright though. I'd like to remind you that The Cars are New Wave, and hence not caught in my big net of suck.

I would argue that soul/black music from the 70s was not mainstream and thus my argument is unchanged. I also did say virtually, there are a few acts that slip through the cracks, though I would argue that Cheap Trick and The Cars are not really mainstream. Only in nostalgia for their mainstream (MTV) success in the 1980s do we remember them at all.

And yeah Yes sort of sucks. I'm actually more of a fan of the Trevor Horn Yes from the 1980s.

Have you ever seen the Director's Cut of Pulp Fiction? There's this scene where Mia Wallace has a camera on Vincent Vega and asks him if he's a Beatles man or an Elvis man. She has this theory where there's Beatles people and Elvis people, and evidently Vincent was an Elvis person.

I'd contend there are Beatles people and Elvis people, who collectively make up about 99% of the population, and then there are Velvet Underground people. I'm a VU person.


But, I won't shut up about how awesome The Grateful Dead are.

This would have been more fitting music for that scene, IMO.

And just for the heck of it, one of my favorite Roxy Music songs.

That's because disco destroyed music from the 70's. You still have holdovers from the 60's that still rocked in the 70's like The Rolling Stones and the Who.

Am I going to have to start defending disco, too?


meatrace wrote:

Right, "Oh! Sweet Nothin'" would have been more appropriate because over the last 40 years millions of teenagers and young adults have blown off attending math camp in order to follow The Velvet Underground around the country.

Look, don't get me wrong: The Velvet Underground are awesome. I lost my virginity to The Velvet Underground (and Simon & Garfunkel--even as a young goblin my stamina was legendary!) I'm not sure how old you are, Citizen Meatrace, but there's a good chance that I've been listening to the Velvet Underground since before you were born. If push came to shove, I'd probably say that I like the VU more than I like the Dead. But, I also like The Beatles more than I like Elvis and I love Elvis.

Bow, Paizo, before the "Dark Star"!

What about the Whole Grunge world? Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, Alice in Chains, Temple of the Dog (great one albmun wonder) Sound Garden and the like. I am a fan.

More recently Evanesence, Smashing Pumkins but one could also look to the big hair bands: Guns and Roses in their time I thought were very good. Jane's Addiction another LA band along with the Red Hot Chili Peppers for that matter NIN I think is pretty good and was after the 70's.

Also Kings of Leon a more recent American Rock Band as well as the Killers both American bands who have made it big in the UK charts.

On a more personal note I love Letters to Cleo, Goo Goo Dolls both american but I suppose one could argue if they are great.

I am sure I will think of some others later but I thought this was a good start.

Don't think any genre that produced stuff like Love's Theme, I Believe in Miracles, I'm Coming Out, or Le Freak needs defending.

Taldor

But but but... what about Abba?

Currently listening to Korpiklaani. Not sure I agree with threatening a poor logger though.

As long as I don't have to ride in the car with someone, I don't care what music they like or don't like, It's no skin off my back :)

There is no defense for disco.

hookers and blow is a pretty good defense for disco.

FREAKS & GEEKS PARAPHRASE--"Even your precious Rolling Stones are playing disco!"

I think "Take A Chance on Me" is more pop than disco, but I can still say Voulez-vous--a-ha!

Also, I feel love.

Of course, the high rate of homosexual performers might have had something to do with the anti-disco backlash. Out of the closet and onto the streets, mofo!

What you think? What you feel? What you know to be real?!?

And, finally, if you can't get down to this, well then I have no use for you, stooge.

I'd say Mama Mia, S.O.S., and The Winner Takes It All excuses their less brilliant stuff.


Thank god the punk movement came in and killed disco and then promptly died leaving the music scene open for the post-punk and new wave sounds that made the 80's one of the best decades of music.
