  • The Music thread - post your favourites and tell us why you like them.

    I started a music thread over on the otter channel, but there doesnt seem to be any posters passionate about the music I like. TD really is very queit these days....

    I am hoping there will be some like minded people over here who I can chat abou my favourite artists with.

    I like a lot of music that was out before I was born or was release when I was just an urchin Wally. I just thing artists had more talent then - mostly because they were consantly touring and playing live - as opposed to getting famous from having a large instagram following.

    I will kick things off with two of my favourite Tim Buckley songs.I think more people are more famliar with his son, Jeff. Tragically, both Tim and Jeff died in their 20`s.

    Sweet Surrender and Dolphins are amazing tracks.

    I`m having problems posting youtube vids

    I tried pasting the link by using the insert video icon, and then tried just pasting the link when that didnt work.

    Am I doing something wrong?

          Thanks for posting the link to Sweet Surrender Harry.

          It wasn't the version I tried to post, but still nice.

          Maybe because my post count is low I cannot post links??

                I just love the Jamaican artists from the 60's & 70's.

                These guys had so much talent - but never really had the money and fame that should have gone with it.

                They were from the ghetto - and the songs about poverty, leaking roofs, etc. were real. You can feel the passion in their songs.

                RESPECT!

                This song by Toots and the Maytels won a song competition in Jamaica and launched them to fame in Jamaica. As far as Jamaican fans were concerned, they were bigger and better than Bob Marley. This clip is taken from the Movie featuring Jimmy Cliff - The Harder They Come.

                The song is about a wedding party where there were only 20 bottles of cola-wine available for guests - as the bride cried in her bedroom = real ghetto life situation..

                  The mighty Heptones are one of my favourites, without doubt.

                  The Book of Rules is a great track..

                    Johnny Too Bad is a song about one of the bad boys in the ghetto..

                    [Verse 1]
                    Walking down the road with your pistol in your waist
                    Johnny, you're too bad
                    Woah woah woii!
                    Walking down the road with your ratchet in your waist
                    Johnny, you're too bad
                    Woah woah woii!
                    You're just robbing and you're stabbing, and you're looting and you're shooting
                    Boy, you're too bad
                    Too bad
                    You're just robbing and you're stabbing, and you're looting and you're shooting
                    Boy, you're too bad
                    Too bad

                    [Verse 2]
                    One of these days when you hear a voice say, "Come"
                    Where you gonna run to?
                    Woah woah woii!
                    One of these days when you hear a voice say, "Come"
                    Where you gonna run to?
                    Woah woah woii!
                    You're gonna run to the Rock for rescue
                    There will be no Rock
                    No Rock
                    You're gonna run to the Rock for rescue
                    There will be no Rock
                    Nowhere

                      A bit of history here. Apparently Keith Richards bought a house in Jamaica and let Peter Tosh live in it for a while. Story goes, when Keith wanted to use the house himself Peter wouldn't leave and they had a massive falling out..

                        Delroy defines the voice of reggae from the era. Legend has it, he nailed this recording on the first take - this song is a great example of the talent stemming from the Jamaican ghettos..

                          Eddie Cochran was one of the few early rock'n'roll artists who wrote his own songs. He was good looking, had all the moves and would have been just as big as Elvis if he had not died in a car accident at age 21.

                          Summertime Blues, Something Else and C'mon Everybody were just a few of his legendary songs..

                            Sid Vicious famously covered Eddie's song Something Else when out on parol for murdering Nancy.

                              Psychedelic Rock is an underrated genre in my opinion.

                              Jefferson Airplane are a great example.
