Please use this thread to list cool bands that others should check out or bands that should be avoided or any other thing you feel like posting.

Here's the lyrics to a funny BNL tune, that I figure Slats and Rage may find amusing, if they haven't already heard the song...

If there's someone you can live
without,
then do so.
And if there's someone you can
just shove out,
then do so.

Chorus:
You can be my Yoko Ono.
You can follow me wherever I go.
Be my, be my,
Be my Yoko Ono.

Isn't it beautiful to see two people
so much in love?
Barenaked as two virgins hand in
hand and and
and hand in glove.
Now that I'm far away it doesn't
seem to me to be
such a pain
To have you hanging off my ankle
like some kind of ball and chain.

Chorus

Oh no, here we go,
our life is just one big pun.
Ono, here we go as Yoko sings
Aieee!

I know that when I say this,
I may be stepping on pins and
needles;
But I don't like all these people
slagging her
for breaking up the Beatles.
(don't blame it on Yokey)
If I were John and you were Yoko,
I would gladly give up musical
genius
just to have my own
personal Venus.
(hit it)

Chorus

Barenaked Ladies - Be My Yoko Ono Lyrics

I'm Deaf, something went seriously wrong.
I lost my hearing instead of my sight for practicing
my favorite hobby

Ferrid, the big hose knows

Joe,

Have to agree with Pete. I'm into a lot of music, so I don't have just one band or performer. Not much today gets me all that excited so most of what I listen to is "old school". Miles, Coltrane, MJQ and Oscar Peterson to Johnny Winter, the Allman Brothers, Humble Pie, Hendrix to Ray Barretto, Celia Cruz, Benny More to Frank, Ella, and the Count to Tchaikovsky, Beethoven and Mozart. I used to lug around over 2000 LP's for alot of years until it became time to whittle the load. I gave up almost 1000 LP's but replaced them with 1000 CD's and still have about 300 12" singles from my DJ in NY days. Music is and always be a world where I can find myself totally happy (of course along with watching the Jets winning!!).

Oh well.

Nice choices. :angry:

I guess my post opened up the "inner" Rage!!

Knowing you like Floyd, one of the best concerts I ever saw was your boys in the Boston Garden in the summer of 75(?). I took a half day off from my job at a record store, drove up from Jersey with 2 friends to see them. We all dropped a__d and went to the show. It was the Dark Side of the Moon and it was 100+ degrees in that place. We partied all night after and drove home to Jersey that next morning in time for work (or something resembling work). It was an awesome show!!

Joe,

Chopin was right up there for me too. Can't picture you with the Doo-Wop crowd though. That was a surprise!!

BTW, is that who was playing at the end of Six Feet? That show is the conga line of living dysfunctionals. It figures Brenda would want to have the Gimp as her new boyfriend!!

BTW, the oldest LP I own was from '65 "Glad All Over" from the Dave Clark 5. The most music I own of any specific artist is Hendrix and Coltrane. Have so much music I could talk about, but one of the albums I remember that really split my head open the first time I heard it was in the fall of 1973 "Whats Going On" by Marvin Gaye. It was hypnotic both the music and lyrics.

I agree. I thought the writing, concept and characters were cutting edge. This season so far seems like Six Feet Lite.

That song at the end of Six Feet Under is "Lucky" by Radiohead. One of my favorites.

I'm a big doo-wop fan. Tony Williams rocked.

I love classical, too. I have about 100 Mozart cds alone.

There are so many it's hard to list them. Today I was @ FYE with my 6 year old and he picks out a Jimi Hendrix CD for me to play. He's rockin' along to Purple Haze and says "I want this". I felt very blessed @ that moment.

One of my favorite lines is from an REM song called E-Bow the letter. Part of the lyric states "tastes like fear". I think that's a cool image. I kind of imagine Wanstoopid feeling that as penny drives us down the field.

Worst lyric is by Kool and the Gang. "She's as heavy as a Chevy".

REM - E Bow The Letter
Look up, what do you see?
All of you and all of me
Fluorescent and starry
Some of them, they surprise

The bus ride, I went to write this, 4:00 a.m.
This letter
Fields of poppies, little pearls
All the boys and all the girls sweet-toothed
Each and every one a little scary
I said your name

I wore it like a badge of teenage film stars
Hash bars, cherry mash and tinfoil tiaras
Dreaming of maria callas
Whoever she is
This fame thing, I don稚 get it
I wrap my hand in plastic to try to look through it
Maybelline eyes and girl-as-boy moves
I can take you far
This star thing, I don稚 get it

I値l take you over, there
I値l take you over, there
Aluminum, tastes like fear
Adrenaline, it pulls us near

I値l take you over
It tastes like fear, there
I値l take you over

Will you live to 83?
Will you ever welcome me?
Will you show me something that nobody else has seen?
Smoke it, drink
Here comes the flood
Anything to thin the blood
These corrosives do their magic slowly and sweet
Phone, eat it, drink
Just another chink
Cuts and dents, they catch the light
Aluminum, the weakest link

I don稚 want to disappoint you
I知 not here to anoint you
I would lick your feet
But is that sickest move?
I wear my own crown and sadness and sorrow
And who壇 have thought tomorrow could be so strange?
My loss, and here we go again

I値l take you over, there
I値l take you over, there
Aluminum, tastes like fear
Adrenaline, it pulls us near

I値l take you over
It tastes like fear, there
I値l take you over

Look up, what do you see?
All of you and all of me
Fluorescent and starry
Some of them, they surprise

I can稚 look it in the eyes
Seconal, spanish fly, absinthe, kerosene
Cherry-flavored neck and collar
I can smell the sorrow on your breath
The sweat, the victory and sorrow
The smell of fear, I got it

I値l take you over, there
I値l take you over, there
Aluminum, tastes like fear
Adrenaline, it pulls us near

I値l take you over
It tastes like fear, there
I値l take you over

Pulls us near
Tastes like fear..

Nearer, nearer
Over, over, over, over
Yeah, look over
I値l take you there, oh, yeah
I値l take you there
Oh, over
I値l take you there
Over, let me
I値l take you there..
There, there, baby, yeah
