13. Nov. 2008, 1:44 von 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. …
22. Okt. 2008, 20:49 von LlorenzaThe Beatles - Rubber Soul
Aha! The Beatles are heading more to the music they're known for. You already hear it at the opening track (which is again the most known song of the album): Drive My Car. A typical hit single, but it has already more intelligent lyrics than the previous albums (especially the "beep beep yeah!" haha) and a more original sound than a "plain" rock 'n' roll song. A good starter of a very fine album.
Drive My Car is followed by Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown), known for the use of a sitar (although not very prominent, if you ask me) and for its mysterious lyrics (just read Wikipedia on this, interesting!). But, the most important thing: it is a very beautiful and original song. Overall, the songs on this album are calmer than on the previous albums, which results in more grown-up and much more original songs. Where on the previous albums the songs could been have brought by any other band, on this album the fundaments for the typical Beatles sound are laid.
22. Sep. 2008, 22:18 von weejay1.How did you get into 29? (Indy & Wich)
From a flatmate in Prague.
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? (Bat for Lashes)
What's a Girl to Do?
3. What's your favorite lyric by 33? (Scott Walker)
Quick give us your lips
Give us your thighs
Give us your sad and devouring eyes
Cascading tears for every heartbeat
Tonight we'll sleep with The Girls From The Streets
4. How did you get into 49? (The Rolling Stones)
I've been aware of them for as long as I can remember, but the first time I really 'got' them would be listening to Gimme Shelter at about 5am in a Brighton university dorm in 2000.
5. How many albums by 13 do you own? (The Divine Comedy)
Five. I think I was out of the country for the last two.
6. What is your favorite song by 50? (Fat Truckers)
7. Is there a song by 39 that makes you sad? (Dave Clarke)
In Short, no. Blue on Blue is a little intense, but it wouldn't make me sad.
19. Sep. 2008, 13:32 von edimervaldo2006: a bad and very hard year. In music, I just followed the trends started the years before.
Due to the fact almost all the music I listened to that year was scrobbled to last.fm, the top20 is basically my last.fm's top20 for that year.
This top20 is not considered as retrospective, since it was made soon after 2006 was finished.
Here we are with the 20 most important songs for that year.
20 - The Beach Boys - Good Vibrations Very classic song of theirs. Very nice vocals.
19 - Ramones - Take It As It Comes It took me a long time to discover that it's actually a The Door's song. But both versions sound really good.
18 - Gene Vincent - It's No Lie In this year I made a Gene Vincent's revival. And this song was the most played then.
17 - Erika - Right or Wrong Every year features a dance song. That time was that song.
16 - Mafalda Arnauth - Quase Imortal It's FADO time. This song had been my #1 in Last.fm for months.
15 - Mondo Marcio - Dentro Alla Scatola It's Italian rap. …
8. Nov. 2007, 1:28 von carmenismI saw this list somewhere of Paul McCartney's best bass parts for The Beatles. I don't think they are in any particular order... I'm really only writing this not because I wanted to keep track of this list for later.
Drive My Car
I'm Only Sleeping
In My Life
You Won't See Me

21. Apr. 2006, 17:34 von lisardggYAnother in the series of memes that are not the insidious Mainstream meme. Spread it on your own journals and together we shall lead last.fm out of its mainstream-calculatin' pit! :)
The meme is simple - list your top 10 artists and write your least favorite song for that artist. Explain why.
Try to avoid picking pointless/banal/uninteresting songs. Go for the utter rock bottom.
I plan to ignore some of my top 10 and put others instead, simply because I don't have anything interesting to say about them.
1. Artist: David Bowie
Song: Dancing in the Street
Reason: While Bowie has quite a few lackluster albums in the 80's and silly/immature songs in the 60's, nothing quite beats this half-hearted performance and its corresponding horribly embarassing video (with Mick Jagger).
2. Artist: The Beatles
Song: The Word
Reason: I can forgive pointless songs in their early period, but this is pushing it. Rubber Soul has quite a few boring songs like that. Seems
