LATEST UPDATE 8/26 - The Cardigans - Travelling with Charley

GUITAR: SuperRiderTH

 

All of this sixties nostalgia of the Cardigans sophomore album culminates in it's most creative gem, “Travelling With Charley.” I love this particular record because it shows such self-awareness. The band knows that their stuff sounds like TV theme songs from the 1960s, so they quite literally made a theme song for an imaginary TV detective show from the 1960s. The show is about a hapless “detective darling” who “never finds a trace,” and every episode ends when “someone else has solved the case.” It’s a brilliant song, and it shows that the group doesn’t take itself too seriously — they’re in on the “joke” too. It’s this kind of risk taking that endears a group like The Cardigans to its audience. So often, our favorite artists are afraid to show us that they’re actually having fun. And what’s Life without fun?

Kudos to BornGamerRob for inspiring this dual release. Xtina is sorely underrepresented in our beloved game.

LATEST UPDATE 9/9 - Grateful Dead - Help on the Way - Slipknot

GUITAR: EchoOfMystery

 

Help on the Way is a true "one of a kind" song that no other rock song sounds like.  That's a pretty impressive feat.
It's a modal minor song (as is the following Slipknot!) that uses lengthy complicated patterns that are probably partially inspired by modern (at the time) jazz songs like Freedom Jazz Dance written by Eddie Harris.
While the song does have some great and original music what makes it amazing are the simple and catchy verses and chorus.  And as great as the chords and vocal melody are, Hunter's lyrics are even better:
 
Paradise waits
on the crest of a wave, her angels in flame
She has no pain
Like a child, she is pure, she is not to blame
 
Great imagery. It's difficult to put my finger on a specific theme or story in these lyrics but the words are beautifully mysterious and left up to interpretation.

LATEST UPDATE 9/18 - Frank Friday's - Well (Feat. John Lennon)

GUITAR: bsbloom

 

The Fillmore East show in June 1971 had Lennon and Ono appearing onstage with Frank Zappa and The Mothers Of Invention. The appearance was the encore for a Mothers Of Invention concert. It kicked off with Well (Baby Please Don’t Go), a cover of the b-side to The Olympics’ 1958 single Western Movies. The band was evidently unsure of how to end the song, and it dissolved into a melange of screams by Yoko Ono and members of The Mothers Of Invention. Lennon introduced the song with the words: “This is a song I used to sing when I was in the Cavern in Liverpool. I haven’t done it since, so…” 
 
And no I didn't chart the Ono background vocals because I like my sanity.

I have 47 songs planned. Not sure if I'll get to them all in time but that should please more than a few PJ fans :)
