Great songs with a terrible section

Inspired by Tinashe's 2 On. R&B perfection. It's lush, sexy, cool, great beat, great vocals... until Schoolboy Q shows up and makes the whole thing gross.

I always skip past the first few minutes of 'Close to the Edge', while I appreciate the dedication to the craziness involved, it's a bit of a chore to listen to.

'Feel Too Good' by the Move is an amazing song that I have to shut off before they start doing whatever ill-advised goof-ass doo wop thing they start doing at the end.

I don’t hate it as much as some do but Jay Z’s spot in Kanye’s Monster almost brings the track to a screeching halt, it doesn’t help that the track itself is very long, editing his verse would probably make it better.

But then we’d lose this meme masterpiece of him just listing monsters:

it's not terrible by any means, but i was listening to Sparklehorses' Good Morning Spider earlier today, and after listening to "happy man", i went looking for a radio edit, or at least some version which doesn't cloak the first half of the song in parody radio dial noises, panning. there is another version ("memphis version"), but it's another recording altogether, and it's missing something. anyway, wonderful song made even more mysterious by a section that isn't terrible but maybe should have not been there though

Esthero - Breath from Another

I always assumed the lunkhead guest rapper was some hack that her crew dragged into the studio to lend the album "street cred" or whatever. but it turns out the lunkhead was Esthero's primary collaborator Doc McKinney. Esthero's own rap works well enough as a bridge, so I don't understand why they thought the song demanded an extra verse

Also not at all terrible but I usually turn Blood on the Motorway off when it gets to the silent part. First 3:30 or so are all that was needed really.

I don't object quite as strongly as some but The Go-Betweens' "Bachelor Kisses" contains a middle eight that sounds incongruous and unnecessary at best. Its inclusion was demanded by management/label hungry for a hit single. Cover versions (there have been more than one might imagine) are at least as likely to omit it as retain it!

Maybe I’m alone on this one but “Donna Lewis - I love you always forever” is a great song with a great groove until the “say you love love me forever” with the piano that ruins the mood for me. Sounds like it turns into an ad for feminine towels.

Miss Broadway by Belle Epoque is one of my favourite disco songs of all time. But I really dislike the part where it breaks down and it's just the backing dudes singing "Uh-huh / I like it" for just a bit too long

"My Wandering Days Are Over" by Belle and Sebastian - one of the best and most affecting verses they've written. I've no love for the "disenchanted pony" part though. Shit lyrics and just nothingy for a chorus

"Always on Time" has a stellar chorus by Ashanti but virtually everything Ja Rule says in the verses is offensively dumb

corrs unplugged, Friday, 2 September 2022 10:17 (one month ago) link

Along similar lines Paul McCartney's "Maybe I'm Amazed" alternates between a fantastic verse and a really perfunctory chorus/bridge. It's as if he wrote the opening lines and then didn't know what to do next, so he just half-assed the rest and recorded it. It's frustrating because it feels like an imposter. It's taking the place of a better song.

I'm amazed at this assessment.

Yes to Paul Simon. He often manages to pull it off and rarely reaches the full-on flopitude of say, The Capeman but still.

When Harpo Played His ARP (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 6 September 2022 20:07 (four weeks ago) link

Can't agree with this take on Paul Simon at all! (Then again, you won't ever hear me say anything negative about The Capeman either.) If there might be anything of his which I might bring up in this thread, it's his son's backing vocals in 'Father and Daughter'.

I was thinking of Genesis' 'Anything She Does' here. I do think the vocals and overall melody of the verses and choruses are pretty alright, but I quite dislike the in-your-face main brass & bass riff.
I also have no idea why Phil Collins always did whatever he did before and after 'Throwing it All Away' whenever they performed it live.

Jarring live renditions of songs might be another topic altogether. I'm a huge Echo & the Bunnymen fan, but after having seen time live multiple times over the past 25 years I almost can't hear them do 'Nothing Lasts Forever' anymore as Ian McCulloch always makes it transition into a Walk On The Wild Side cover and back again, and it was fine for one time but otherwise it really doesn't add anything to the song other than taking time.

But of course the classic answer is Tangerine Dream's "Birth of Liquid Plejades"

I won't argue with your taste, but have you really encountered this opinion elsewhere? The microtonal cello quartet is a brilliant opening, but I think that all the sections of this music are beautifully proportioned.

Altrockchick otm

Um Girassol Da Cor De Seu Cabelo” (“A Sunflower the Color of Your Hair”): I have mixed feelings about this piece, though I think the song itself is quite lovely, both melodically and lyrically. Here’s what lyricist Mârcio Borges had to say about the song’s origins:

(the song is) the fanciful narrative of a bus trip I made with my girlfriend, whom I would one day marry. It was the first time we traveled together. I rested my head on her lap, looking closely at the details of her blue jeans dress. Through the window the radiant sun filled the bright blue sky. And I lay there declaring eternal love. Sunflower was my favorite flower, and it all made sense.

Grasse, Jonathon. Milton Nascimento and Lô Borges’s The Corner Club (33 1/3 Brazil) . Bloomsbury Publishing. Kindle Edition.

What he is describing is a sweet and gentle moment between two lovers in the nascent stages of a relationship. The music captures that loveliness through the first verse and chorus with Lô Borges singing the simple melody in a soft voice as he plays piano with a light touch. When his supporting cast enters (Rubinho on drums, Beto on bass, Tavito and Nelson Angelo on guitar), they do so subtly and quietly, so as not to disturb the tender moment.

The first sign of trouble comes at the start of the next verse when arranger Eumir Deodato introduces “silvery strings” that create a sound that is either a high-pitched violin filled with air or an extremely poor example of flute technique. The sound is terribly grating, so much so that I lose all connection to the flow. My suspicions concerning Deodato’s questionable choices are confirmed by the jarring appearance of what Grasse calls “an orchestral interlude of expressionistic, cinematic proportions, smearing those silvery background strings into an angst-ridden cloud dissonantly answering the lover’s question, ‘ou será que é tarde demais?’ (‘or will it be too late?’).” Talk about an overreaction to a simple question! Grasse goes gaga over the arrangement (he has a tendency to go gaga with annoying frequency); I would describe it as a classic example of the arranger absconding with the song. The up-tempo coda that follows might have worked had it not been for the orchestral intrusion; as it is, it feels like a failed rescue attempt. Deodato arranged some of the other pieces on the album but none are as obviously out of sync with a song’s content as this one.

Elvis Costello once wrote that at one time, any song of his that had any potential for sweetness needed to be given the harshest possible treatment. I think he was talking about "Deportee."

Anyway I have never felt that it was necessary to have "Man Out of Time" begin and end with the double-time distorted outtake spliced in. Your opinion may differ. The song would have been fine.

"Captain Sensible - Glad It's All Over. Absolutely gorgeous sounding but on some listens the stupid lyrics get in the way a bit too much"

Literally every single King Crimson song with lyrics would be much better without lyrics. I would love that band if they had never had a singer ever. Or if the lyrics were sung in Sigur Ros' Hopelandic. Or Magma's kobaian. Or if they were whistled.

For that matter ELP's oeuvre is ruined for me by Keith Emerson's keyboard playing and Greg Lake's singing and guitar and whatever other instruments he played e.g. harmonica or banjo or whatever. If someone remastered their albums so that they were just Calm Palmer drumming and nothing else they would be fantastic.

ok if we're gonna talk about bridges how about "Orinoco Flow". its such a cool New Age single because it's so brisk and catchy, unlike what you would expect from the genre. there's nothing else like it. so why not just stick a slow tuneless part in the middle just to ruin the flow
