This month we are going pop, full bubblegum and sap.  As my buddy likes to say, Pop Goes RockBand!


I bring you five by five, five songs from the pop sensation group of the 60's and 70's, the Fifth Dimension.


The group has not appeared in RockBand yet, and for good reason.  They were basically five superb singers, and paid little attention to the instruments.  All of their recordings featured LA session musicians, and, on many of these songs, the guitar work was simply chord work.  There is one lovely exception to that trend:  Up, Up, and Away featured phenomenal guitar work by the session musician Al Casey.  As a plastic guitarist, this is my favorite song here.  The guitar work is a blast.


Despite keeping the instruments in the background, two of their regular fill-ins really let loose.  Hal Blaine was always fun and interesting on drums, and the drum charts are nice.  AJ, as usual, did a superb job capturing Blaine on three of these tracks.  Then there was Joe Osborn, who really let loose on bass.  If you like bass, you will love these songs.


So, I lead off, from their first album:




Download:  http://customscreato...and-away-r21306


Drums by AJFOne23.


This song was written by Jimmy Webb, with lead vocals by Marilyn McCoo.


My next two customs are from their second album, Age of Aquarius.






Aquarius/Sunshine is a medley from the musical Hair.  Billy Davis Jr. has the lead singing duty, and does a great job.  However, he is really leading only on the second part, Sunshine.  McCoo takes the lead on Age.  That makes the singing, in RockBand, a little weird.  The highlighted vocalist starts out doing backing, and does not take over the song until the second part.


AJ did the drums for both of these, and redid the tempo map on Age of Aquarius.


Downloads:  Age:  http://customscreato...-the-sun-r21307


Wedding:  http://customscreato...ll-blues-r21308


Wedding Bell Blues was written by Laura Nyro.  It is funny - I had never heard of Nyro, nor did I know her work at all.  Yet, last month, I released a Three Dog song written by Nyro, and here, another one by the 5D.  The music is great, but the lyrics ...?  Pretty stupid.  I guess it was a sign of the times, that a young woman had to measure her self-esteem by her marital status. 


My final two offerings are break-up songs, sad, mournful, and memorable.






Downloads:  Bell:  http://customscreato...o-answer-r21309


Sleep:  http://customscreato...ouldnt-g-r21310


Marilyn McCoo has the lead for vocals.  One Less Bell is a Burt Bacharach tune, co-authored with Hal David.  Sleep was written by Tony Macauley.


Hope you enjoy.  I promise to return to harder rock next month.  I've finished several Guess Who songs, for AJ, and those will appear in his thread soon.  And I have started on some Pink Floyd songs.
