Re: Post a song you like or love.

The whole album is fantastic, but I've always loved this one in particular:

Re: Post a song you like or love.

I'm a sucker for songs where bands quote their earlier works. I have been since The Police. Hell, I have been since the first time I heard Glass Onion on The White Album.

Big Country's "Harvest Home". Good tune.

Re: Post a song you like or love.

While I'm at it, might as well also post "I Walk the Hill", which is possibly B.C.'s best song.

Re: Post a song you like or love.

I've just discovered Kirara on YouTube and, while I've liked everything that I've heard from him, "Hail" is my favorite by far. I know that I've listened to this multiple times daily since I discovered it last week. Give it a minute or so to get really cranked up:

Excellent. Here's a great early one--I still think it should have been on The Crossing:

Re: Post a song you like or love.

Here's one of my favorites at the moment. The video is great, and went in a direction I didn't expect.

Re: Post a song you like or love.

I posted this in the other thread, but the video was taken down from Yt. Martin Briley's "A Little Knowledge Is A Dangerous Thing" should have been a big hit. Such a catchy number. I'm especially fond of the elegant musical transition from verse to verse at 0:37.

I was a fan back in the day--I've still got Fear of the Unknown on vinyl, and a special 12" DJ maxi single pushing "The Man I Feel" and "I Don't Feel Better." "I Don't Feel Better" was the track that drew me to the album, but "A Little Knowledge..." was the keeper. I also liked his lone Top 40 (but just barely) single, "Salt in My Tears":



And here's a song that I really love ("Climbing Up the Love Tree") by an artist that kind of reminded me of Martin Briley, Francis Dunnery:

Yeah, "Salt in My Tears" is another good one. He was accused of misogyny because of some of his venomous lyrics.

Re: Post a song you like or love.

"Black Sheets of Rain" (Bob Mould tune covered live by Ryan Adams). Lots of banter/tuning; actual song begins around 2:20 mark:


*****************************************************************

"If I Needed You" by Townes van Zandt covered by Andrew Bird. I think this is the live version done on the empty Letterman set during Hurricane Sandy; unfortunately, the video has been removed due to copyright violations. He's backed by Tift Merritt on guitar & Alan Hampton on upright bass.



*****************************************************************

"Darkness, Darkness" Jesse Colin Young song covered by Richard Shindell.

Re: Post a song you like or love.

"Roadsinger (To Warm You Through the Night)" by Yusuf/Cat Stevens. From 2009 but sounds very much like classic Cat; longtime fans will appreciate some of the imagery from the video:
************************************

"Slow Train" Joe Bonamassa:

************************************

"Dun Ringill" Jethro Tull:

Listen with headphones if possible.

Re: Post a song you like or love.

"The Way It Will Be" by Gillian Welch & David Rawlings. No words to describe the beauty of the melody, lyrics, and performance.


**************************

"Caleb Myer" another by Welch/Rawlings from the same concert. Have heard this performed live them at least 4 times; this still remains the best.



***************************

"Sloe Gin" another by Joe Bonamassa from Vienna Music Hall concert. In a word...haunting.

Re: Post a song you like or love.

"8 Dogs 8 Banjos" Old Crow Medicine Show. Be sure to watch the entire video for the whole performance. If either the song or the live performance...or both...don't put a smile on your face, you might as well crawl into your grave right now & start pulling dirt over you.



******************************************************

"As The Crow Flies" Rory Gallagher (live Irish Tour '74):

******************************************************

"The Mountain" Steve Earle & Del McCoury Band. Great video.
