1. How did you get into 29? (Tie at 28: Stevie Wonder and The Divine Comedy)
Stevie Wonder I've been familiar with as a teenage listening to oldies radio. With the Divine Comedy, I can't quite pinpoint the instance I've started listening, but I first heard of them by listening to their music online. Probably in 2006.
2. What was the first song you ever heard by 22? (Snow Patrol)
Run, or maybe Spitting Games. No, I'm pretty sure it's Run.
3. What's your favorite lyric by 33? (Three-way tie at 31: Aberfeldy, The Moody Blues, and The Velvelettes)
Of all the songs of all these artists:
The spoken words at the end of Nights in White Satin:
"Cold-hearted orb that rules the night
Removes the colors from our sight
Red is grey and yellow white
But we decide which is right
And which is an illusion"
4. How did you get into 49? (sigh... …
22 août 2007, 12h03m par Nectar_CardFor a streamable tag radio of all the artists listed here, click here for Motown records radio
Motown Records, also known as Tamla-Motown outside of the United States, is a record label originally based out of Detroit, Michigan ("Motor City"), where it achieved widespread international success. Motown played an important role in the racial integration of popular music as the first record label owned by an African American and primarily featuring African American artists to regularly achieve crossover success and have a widespread, lasting effect on the music industry.
Incorporated on 12 January 1959 by Berry Gordy, Jr. as Tamla Records, Motown has, over the course of its history, owned or distributed releases from more than 45 subsidiaries in varying genres, although it is most famous for its releases in the musical genres of R&B, hip hop, pop, and soul. Motown left Detroit for Los Angeles in 1972, and remained an independent company until 1988, when Gordy sold the company to MCA. …
28 mai 2006, 2h27m par bboysgirlA few months ago, I did some research on music from the 50s and 60s for a writing assignment. It required that I listen to an incredible amount of music from that time period -- music that I wasn't very familiar with. By "incredible amount of music," I mean so much that I almost went crazy from it. And by "wasn't very familiar," I mean I knew close to nothing about music from the 50s. I was a little more familiar with music from the 60s, the decade in which I was born.
My research lead me to discover some great music. I have taken my favorite songs from the research and compiled a playlist titled "50s-60s Jukebox." I like to listen to it on my iPod when I go for a walk.
If you can listen to only one song on the playlist, listen to "Shotgun" by Junior Walker & The All Stars. It has an infectious groove. "Love Letters" by Ketty Lester has been a long-time favorite of mine.
7 avr. 2006, 17h36m par AudaciousnessInspired by Trixx's excellent list, I thought I'd make one of my own. So I started playing all my NS tracks from A onward (well 1 actually). I thought I could probably manage 50-75 quite easily. Several days worth and God knows how many tracks later, I had a count of the list I'd made. 80 odd and I'd reached the end of I. I tried to take some out but couldn't remove enough to keep the overall list manageable so I went through J and K to make just under 100 and here it is.
There is just too damn much too damn good music.
Hopefully, or not if nobody's interested, I'll get around to the rest of the alphabet in the next few weeks.

29 nov. 2005, 1h30m par prettyianNo, this isn't a poll, or an opportunity to voice your opinions on the matter - it's pure fact. The best bassist ever is James Lee Jamerson.
Who? Come on, you've all heard a ton of his basslines, you just don't know it yet. This is because he was a massively overshadowed session player for Motown records, providing the funk and the soul of hundred upon hundreds of classics with his band 'the funk brothers' (right about now, the funk soul brother, take a wild guess who that's referring to..
Here's a selection of some of their rhythms:
My Girl - Temptations
Bernadette - 4 TOPS
Aint That Peculiar - Marvin Gaye
Ooh Baby Baby - The Miracles
To Many Fish In The Sea - The Marvelettes
Uptight (Everything Is Alright) - Stevie Wonder
Heat Wave (U) - Martha & The Vandellas
This Old Heart Of Mine - Isley Brothers
I Heard It Through The Grapevine (2 recordings) - Marvin Gaye, Gladys Knight & Pips
Where Did Our Love Go (U) - Diana/Supremes
