It's 17 minutes. Sit back and turn the lights low, drink some scotch and think of someone you've lost or yearn for. It's one of the few pieces of music which brings me to tears every so often.

 I recommend you not watch the video whilst listening. Close your eyes if you have to.




Pretty cool dude....You've certainly got some diversity in you.

Did you actually listen to the entire piece in between the time of your last post? You are one busy bee, I must say. 
Heart was pretty cool, but the guitarist's newer solo material blows. Any time the words, sun, sweat, and sex are in the title, I tend to poo poo it. I could not stomach it. Almost seemed like a Christian album with the titles, too. One thing I can't stand is the praising of Jesus, in any form.
You post so many things at once I feel like I'm being questioned for a singles application. I'll post a background profile thread someday. As for now, I enjoy the anonymity and in due time I'll shed the cloak and reveal who I am.

Sugar, i was thinking that about you. It's really difficult for me to keep up typing with all you guys. Before I know it, I'm 4 topics behind...


It's all I can do just to keep up most the time.....

Fisher just farts around and has fun sugar. He knows his time has way past......I didn't expect you to go ga ga over his goofying around with the solo stuff.....I was just wondering if you might know any of those names on his site...

A pretty cool guy. Very unpretentious humble dude and doesn't care about anything as far as thinking he's someone he's not.

OK Seattle people, anyone old enough to remember "10 Bulls". They were a decent local band in the late 80s early 90s.

In college, I had many friends who each had different musical backgrounds and tastes. One of these tastes was John Coltrane. Another was the pot. For me it played the role of matchmaker. Without it, I'm sure Miles Davis, Ornette Coleman, Sun Ra, and Johnny Hartman never would have entered my life. For this is when I first partook in drug use and in turn, first witnessed the sounds only these men could bring to life. Not to say these guys aren't great without being high, but jesus, almost everything is better when you're high, at least back then they were.

Miles Davis is one mean looking dude. Can't darn with him or his music. In this clip, he's stretching this garbage beyond what many are still trying to do today. Sometimes we get it, sometimes we don't. I thought I did, I probably didn't.

Shorter, Corea, Holland, and DeJohnette are no slouches, either.

Part of a documentary about Ornette Coleman. Just soooo great. I thought it may help explain to anybody who thinks this stuff is just a bunch of notes mashed together. Listen and let it sink in.

Did you see them live? I never had the opportunity. That bust out album they had is one I never get tired of....

The Beatles absolutely sucked before they started getting high.....

"Love,love me do" What the darn is that crap anyway? Probably difficult to play after dropping acid also thank goodness. lol

Slow down, D-hop.  "Love Me Do" was written in 1959 and released in 1962.  Not only is it a classic, but what was cooler than that in 1962?  The number 1 song of 1962 was "Roses Are Red" by Bobby Vinton.  "Love Me Do" is friggin acid rock compared to Bobby Vinton.  The Beatles NEVER sucked.  They were absolute genius from the beginning and influenced rock as much as anybody. 

Early Beatles

Yeah, I got to see them live and personal in 1991 with the band Eleven. Check out Eleven, killer vocalist. Natasha Schneider. 
I'm not quite sure why you believe The Beatles sucked before "they started getting high." That is one fucked up statement.

Back to the task at hand.

The Beastie Boys were extremely prevalent in almost every dorm at our school in 1993. This song hit around that time.

When the warm months forced the students to keep their windows open, there wasn't a week when one didn't hear this song blaring from one of the rooms.

HL - agree about early Beatles

If nothing else, for the genious of the sheer volumn of melodic, simple tunes that had their own feel & style

Siamese Dream, the album form The Smashing Pumpkins will forever be in my top ten, even if "Today" was a bit overplayed.
