Ennio Morricone 'Invenzione Per John' (9:07)

Songs I wouldn't elongate, but usually listen to on repeat:

Big Star - ST 100-6
Big Star - I'm in Love With a Girl
Moby Grape - Naked, If I Want To

I would say elongate Red Krayola's "Victory Garden," but G-500 already did it and I still prefer the original..

Forksclovetofu (Forksclovetofu), Monday, 22 August 2005 21:11 (eleven years ago) Permalink

also, on a more serious note...Ellen Allien's "Open". guess it tends to be the epic tracks that i want more of still

"Ambulance Blues" ...maybe not twice as long, but could get the Gillian Welch's "I Dream A Highway" treatment of just winding down and around longer.

Boredoms - "Super Shine"

Black Box Recorder b-side "Factory Radio." It's barely 2 minutes long, and I don't think I could ever listen to it less than twice in a row.

" I was using some of the breakdown parts. Every Jamaican record has a dub side to it. So I just tried to apply that. As the years went along I'm watchin people, waiting for this particular break in it, the rhythm section. One night, I was waiting for the record to play out. Maybe there are dancers waiting for this particular break. I could have a couple more records got the same break in it - I wonder, how it be if I put them all together and I told them: "I'm going to try something new tonight. I'm going to call it a merry-go-round."

'Roygbiv' is the obvious great call!

Laurent Garnier 'Communications From The Lab'

I don't get why everyone loves Roygbiv so much, I think it's one of the weaker and more predictable songs on the albums. I even prefer Kaini Industries to it.

I've said this before: War's "Low Rider", with its insanely springy assembly-line rhythm, is perhaps my favourite groove of all time; and if they'd decided to fill an entire LP side with it, that'd be more than fine with me.

I mentioned this in the other thread, but IMO it's ridiculous that Minnie Riperton's "Les Fleur" has one of the best, most gloriously beautiful choruses in all of Western pop music, yet it's played only twice in the entire song before the it fades out!

I also remember being disappointed to learn that there's no extended version of Chaka Khan's "I'm Every Woman", which at 4 minutes is way too short for such a disco epic. There is a long house remix from the '80s, but that doesn't satisfy the same need, I'm surprised no one has made a proper old-school disco edit of it.

It was sampled on Dubtribe's 10m+ 'Do It Now' though (in turn inspiring The Juan Maclean's 'Happy House') - someone has probably put all three in a mix at some point.
