1 Marvin Gaye - What's Goin' on
With What's Going On, Gaye meditated on what had happened to the American dream of the past -- as it related to urban decay, environmental woes, military turbulence, police brutality, unemployment, and poverty. These feelings had been bubbling up between 1967 and 1970, during which he felt increasingly caged by Motown's behind-the-times hit machine and restrained from expressing himself seriously through his music. Finally, late in 1970, Gaye decided to record a song that the Four Tops' Obie Benson had brought him, "What's Going On". When Berry Gordy decided not to issue the single, deeming it uncommercial, Gaye refused to record any more material until he relented. Confirmed by its tremendous commercial success in January 1971, he recorded the rest of the album over ten days in March, and Motown released it in late May. Besides cementing Marvin Gaye as one of the most important artists in pop music…

4 Oct 2009, 19:23 by LlorenzaCreedence Clearwater Revival - Cosmo's Factory
Of course I had already heard a lot of songs by Creedence Clearwater Revival... but I didn't really KNOW them. Knowing in the means of listening to and enjoying every note of it, waiting for a guitar to fall in or a new melody to begin. Really knowing is when you know a song by heart and you're just waiting for those magic moments in the song to come: the reasons why you love the song.
What an introduction just to say I absolutely love the first song on Cosmo's Factory: Ramble Tamble. Yes, the beginning and the ending is typical CCR music, nothing really original, albeit very catchy (that's typical CCR music). But the middle part! (Well, middle part, it lasts 5 minutes, that's almost two songs) That's pure perfection! There's only one word for it: "epic". It's music that serves as an ideal soundtrack for memorable facts, slowly building up, entering a (superb) piano, entering a subtle guitar line that changes into a superb guitar line. …

I think if I hadn't heard them so much in my life, CCR would be one of my favorite bands of all time. The problem is, everyone likes them so you end up hearing them everyone. There's no denying they were a great band but the songs I still enjoy of theirs are quickly dwindling. I still like Have You Ever Seen the Rain, Lodi, Green River, and a few others. Just don't play I Heard It Through the Grapevine, Proud Mary, Lookin' Out My Back Door or Down on the Corner and I'll be ok.
4 Apr 2008, 03:37 by BlackCoffeeDuckThere is a TV show in Australia called Rage and artists and bands come on and pick there fav songs or video clips. So back in 1994 Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds toured for Let Love In and Nick Cave was asked to pick his fav video chips, it was air on Christmas Eve.
Talking about some of the video Nick just say the same thing over and over which was "This is __________ and are one of the greatest song or artist and I urge you to go out and buy it" but one funny thing did happened at the almost end when talking about Bob Dylan which he was saying he can't so he's going to talk about his son Jesse who did the new video chip at the time for the new single but Nick Cave forget the name of his own song, he was reminded by someone you could not see on screen, the song was Red Right Hand.
Anyway here are all the songs he played that night, maybe I should look up all the videos on youtube maybe you can if you read this.
1.Anita Lane-Jesus Almost Got Me
