28 Oct 2009, 15:34 by sameoldscenexx1. What's your favorite song by 15?
(Janet Jackson) Definitely Go Deep, it is in my opinion one of the best R&B tracks of all time.
2. How did you get into 20?
(Michael Jackson) My mother was really into his music, and obviously the excessive plays from my childhood have made a lasting impression.
3. Who is your favorite member in 1?
(Fleetwood Mac) Stevie Nicks. I know it's cliché, but anyone who can write songs that beautiful and have such a prominent stage presence and keep the audience entranced with just the slightest gaze deserves to be a favourite.
4. What’s your favorite lyric bit by 29?
'Bring me a day full of honest work,
And a roof that never leaks
I'll be satisfied.'
In context of the song, these lyrics are magical.
5. Have you ever seen 22 live?
(Dave Matthews Band) That would be a no.
6. What's your favorite album from 10?.
(Madonna) This is like asking me to pick a favourite child! I'm going to say Erotica, for the sheer fact I used to play it all the time when I was younger.
18 Jan 2009, 14:44 by sameoldscenexxThe concept of this game is for you to use the first line of each of these songs to guess what it is. No cheating! - this means using search engines to find out the song, or anything like that. Once the song has been guessed, the artist and title will be put up and the lyrics will be bolded.
The artists I've used are right at the bottom of the page to help you.
1) Smashing Pumpkins - Today
'Today is the greatest day I've ever known, can't live for tomorrow, tomorrow's much too long.'
2) Fleetwood Mac - Tusk
'Why don't you ask him if he's gonna stay? Why don't you ask him if he's going away?'
3) Vanessa Carlton - The One
'Holiday and I come home, I hope to see this boy I know, I can't wait for us to be alone.'
4) Tori Amos - Crucify
'Every finger in the room is pointing at me, I wanna spit in their faces.'
5) John Stewart - Midnight Wind
'Come on down Miranda, your window's open wide, take a chance on a midnight dance so I can see it in your eyes.'
6) Fiona Apple - Shadowboxer

4 Feb 2008, 04:08 by sablespecterBuckingham Nicks / "Frozen Love" / Buckingham Nicks (10) / Sep 1973
Artist: Buckingham Nicks
Original Album: Buckingham Nicks
Track: Frozen Love
Full track via buckinghamnicks.net
The third of a three-day series on Anthology Recordings, a site offering new life in the digital age for rare and out-of-print vinyl that's really down the Long Tail. Anthology provides full album downloads in 320 kbps, DRM-free MP3 format, with album art included - a nice alternative to paying $30+ for original vinyl or $20+ for now out-of-print CD reissues (if they ever existed at all).
I've previously chosen a track from the long-demanded Buckingham Nicks album. This is another of my three favorite tracks, and probably tops, with great vocal harmonies and the typical great guitar work from Lindsey.
Even though the rights for this album are in the hands of Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham, considering that compact discs are on the path to extinction, I figure if it hasn't come to CD by now, then it never will.
25 Jan 2008, 03:20 by sablespecterI brought the concept of the Song of The Day into the internet age one year ago today, 24 Jan 2007 (local time), and I've loved every day of it.
If you have been reading along, then thanks for reading and especially to everyone who has commented in! If you're new to SotD, please stay tuned as we move into year two!
In the past year, we've had a SotD from all of the artists listed below (# of selections). With 365 selections up, I've only covered 5% of the sablespecter catalog, and it's growing by more than an average of a song per day, so we're not anywhere near being in danger of running out of songs!
In fact, the nicely coincident timing of Last's big announcement means the collective available catalog is now quite a bit larger for all of us! It's almost cosmic timing - I wonder if this is their way of celebrating?
Yeah, probably not, so to celebrate a successful year, I've decided that starting today, Song of The Day is now open to requests (don't all rush in at once LOL)!…
30 Nov 2007, 05:26 by sablespecterBuckingham Nicks / "Crystal" / Buckingham Nicks (5) / Sep 1973
Artist: Buckingham Nicks
Original Album: Buckingham Nicks
(No known preview available for this cut...see below for where you can hear the remake!)
Day 4 of the SotD Fleetwood Mac Legacy...
Yesterday I mentioned that as Bob Welch's involvement with Fleetwood Mac ended in December 1974, two more artists were added to the fold that brought them all into the superstar era. In September 1973, Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks put out their duo album under the moniker of their last names. It wasn't well-supported by Polydor and was generally a flop, but it was enough to catch the attention of Mick Fleetwood. Lindsey's guitar chops were exactly what had been needed ever since Peter Green departed for more quiet avenues, while Stevie brought a wealth of songwriting and vocal talents.
So on New Year's Eve 1974, Lindsey and Stevie were invited to join FM…

Is there anything better than Brad Pitt talking incoherently with a thick Cockney accent? Very few things. One of those few things just happens to be a group I recently established to serve as an "everything else" forum. Check it out: The MILFin Rangers!.
Another thing that just so happens to be better than Brad's cockney accent is a Pearl Jam concert. Specifically one that occured on May 30th, 2006 at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. I have to give up props to My Morning Jacket. They put on a wonderful set, but when Pearl Jam was finished, I completely forgot there had been another band on stage. Mike McCready owned the stage. He was running around, jumpin around, playin his axe behind his head. Eddie was getting smashed. Willie on keys was rockin like there was no tomorrow. Matt, as usual, was pounding on the drums like Bam Bam and Jeff looked like he was having a blast as well. Then of course the audience. We were all going nuts. …
