LATEST UPDATE 2/21 - AMOUR MONTH DAY #21 Silverchair 2 pack

GUITAR/VOCALS: kueller

 
Not quite a grunge song, but still a definite rock song and the best of the type on the album, Without You sounds like a sum up of everything Silverchair has done up to this point. The chorus has just enough hook to pull you in, but doesn't sound overproduced or like they're trying too hard. After a typical verse-chorus-verse-chorus-bridge-chorus song structure, the band throws something else out to please the listener at the end of the song. There's a minute long instrumental outro that flat out rocks. The chord structure at the end really drives the song home.

The song was written when Johns was suffering from severe depression among other things. In an interview with Kerrang! Magazine, Johns said that the song was "about not being able to establish a relationship with anyone, not being able to experience love outside of family". He also said that he "wanted a song that people could perceive as a love song, while the lyrics are actually very angry".

BASS: doa

STANDARD KEYS: MrPrezident

GUEST WRITE UP: Funk Meister Freud

 
There aren't many songs out there that by simply mentioning title are capable of bringing a smile to my face... this is definitely one of them. I can't put a finger on it...Is it that snazzy rhythm guitar intro, laying the 'funky' down with a vigor that simply oozes uplifting?...could be!
 
Maybe it's Stevie's vocalizations, full of joyous conviction,..is that the heartbeat of it all?...that's a very strong possibility!! 
 
Well, there's always that bombalicious, boogieful, fun loving 'Stevie Harmonica' that when blown, emits an electrifying surge of energy, lifting the spirit up a couple or four notches on the 'amazingly good vibe' scale.....Good gawd!...That's gotta be it !!!!
 
Whatever the reasons, surely the backing of bassist extraordinaire James Jamerson and the rest of the Funk Brothers crew round out a phenomenal and overall sound to this exhilarating musical arrangement. As much as Stevie Wonder's essence and energy permeate the song, it's hard to believe he himself didn't write it. That credit goes to a member of Berry Gordy's song writing team of 'Motown Hit Factory' writers by the name of Ron Miller along with the musical talents of Orlando Murden.  Not a hard or particularly challenging song to play for RB3, but it sure feels good doing it, don't it?!  :D

Anyone who's seen John Legend perform knows the 35-year-old has been covering the Smokey Robinson classic "Quiet Storm" in his concerts for years. Legend does such a great job of it that Robinson urged the singer to record the song himself. But Legend did one better. He teamed up with Robinson to record a duet of the classic '70s tune for Robinson's new album, Smokey & Friends. The result is a blended mix of silky smooth old school and new school soul that is beyond music to the ears. Legend says at the beginning of the track, "Bob Dylan called Smokey Robinson one of the greatest poets of our time. Smokey, it's an honor to sing this with you."

Well done, AJFOne23 & crew!....that Motown 'wish list' a few other members and myself share, is getting quite a good number of sizable dents over the last couple of months! Shout out goes to Nunchuck and Sy at Funhouse for their past work in whittling down that particular genre, as well! :cool:

  :D  :rock:
