"I'm on an island" is great

Sweet Lady Genevieve & Animal Farm were my 1 & 2 votes. I was hoping they'd both be higher.

Green Day... why?

listen to the riff.

EZ Snappin, Friday, 20 April 2012 18:06 (2 years ago) Permalink

Hearing that in the HP ad was pretty disconcerting. It was like my cat had run away and appeared in a commercial months later.

listen to the riff.

yeah I don't really hear it. similar tempo/drum part but it's in a different key and the melody is totally different, the rhythm pattern is different...? eh whatever.

Strangers was towards the bottom of my ballot. love it tho

heavy is the head that eats the crayons (Shakey Mo Collier), Friday, 20 April 2012 18:20 (2 years ago) Permalink

Wait, both of these songs are better than "Picture Book"?

Naive Teen Idol, Friday, 20 April 2012 18:21 (2 years ago) Permalink

My favorite song on Lola.

Waterloo? Oh, we've sunsetted that. (Tarfumes The Escape Goat), Friday, 20 April 2012 18:22 (2 years ago) Permalink

I have to say, Kinkdom is doing pretty well for a long OOP cash-in album.

Raymond Dubious Davies (C. Grisso/McCain), Friday, 20 April 2012 18:45 (2 years ago) Permalink

fabulous; the song that opened my mind to the genius of this band. They were soooo ahead of the curve, so many times; still can't believe this song came out in 65.

Euler, Friday, 20 April 2012 18:46 (2 years ago) Permalink

their first gay subtext song...?

heavy is the head that eats the crayons (Shakey Mo Collier), Friday, 20 April 2012 18:47 (2 years ago) Permalink

is it? ha, i have no idea what that song is about. but i love it. voted it pretty high I think. mission of burma did a cool version of this back in the 80s. can't find it on youtube tho.

VGPS just squeaked onto my ballot.

yeah it's pretty nice, part of the 1000 Years of Music set I think. xp

tylerw, Friday, 20 April 2012 19:08 (2 years ago) Permalink

Geez, I was sure this would finish in the top ten. What popular songs from Village Green are left?

kornrulez6969, Friday, 20 April 2012 19:10 (2 years ago) Permalink

I don't think any others will make it

Autumn Almanac is so great. the chord structure is stunningly weird and complex, but it sounds so effortlessly catchy.

really marveled at its construction when I sat down to learn to play it

What weird results. There are about 8 ringers left, but as for the rest, I have no idea.

kornrulez6969, Friday, 20 April 2012 21:15 (2 years ago) Permalink

Catching up...

Always liked the lyrics on "VGPS" more than the music.

"See My Friends" was my #2 for no other reason than I find it seductive as hell. Maybe it's the gay subtext.
