favourite song?

  • favourite song?

    currently African Queen
    (appeared on both The Great Pablo and Skanking with Pablo, couldn't find it as part of any of his non-compilation releases though)
    i like the song because the melody is perfectly suited to the whimsicality and childishness of the melodica and yet (i'm not really into the jargon, so i can't really put my finger on what exactly i'm talking about, but i hope you see what i mean) there is something in the sound or the production, some tightness and deliberateness that could only be the product of a mature and conscious mind putting itself to good use

    I've recently seen an exhibition on folk instruments from around the world, and it struck me: Pablo is unique and unimitable because he handles the melodica as it were a traditional instrument of some West African community. It was quite a revelation, give it a thought the next time you listen to his musings on the little flute. Or tell me off for being a moron, whichever is more appropriate.

    East of the River Nile! The version on his Gold album is great too!

  • there´s a lot of good songs, but i have to said at this moment i am alright is so nice(vocals by dillinger?)

  • I'm sure that's not Dillinger:), I have no clue who it might be...
    But the song's really good, it's been a long time I listened to it.
    My Pablo favourite is Thriller. Many past favourites, but this seems to be lasting.

    - have to agree with Up Warika Hill (not sure about the spelling: Warrika, Warricka...) :-)

    ...it's probably Carlton Barrett's wickedest drum pattern on this track!
