is a five-piece rock band from Denton, Texas lead by mastermind Tim Smith. After two super successful albums, Smith wanted to change the direction of the band in 2010 and move their sound from Fleetwood Mac to Fairport Convention. A decision applauded once again by frenetic critics.
Good times in high school!
The Beatles are my favorite band of all time. So it’s a very hard question. Rather than try and name a favorite song from all of their classic albums, I’m selecting the B-Side from an early Beatles record («I Want To Hold Your Hand») called «This Boy». I just think it’s a perfect pop song, but so Rock ‘n’ Roll at the same time. When John Lennon goes up high in the bridge, it makes the hair on my neck stand up.
I would say Radiohead in Belgium at Pukkelpop in 2007. But since my first concert was Michael Jackson’s «Thriller» tour, I HAVE to say that. I was young, but I remember those coffins coming out of the ground and being terrified. Amazing.
Pat Suzuki’s 1950 version of «How High The Moon» which was used in the movie «Biloxi Blues», based on Neil Simon’s play. It’s absolutely gorgeous.
I used to listen to this tape non stop when I was about 5 years old. I had 3 tapes my parents bought me: «The best of Chuck Berry», «The best of The Mamas & the Papas», and «Buddy Rich Swingin New Big Band». I was hooked on music from as early as I can remember. I also remember Taco’s «Puttin On The Ritz» and the Stray Cats’ «Stray Cat Strut» from earlier on, but the first full album I knew front to back was «The Best Of Chuck Berry».
An old hymn. Words by Horatio Spafford and music by Philip Bliss. I think the song title says it all.
I can’t help but think this song is pretty amazing.
I’m a sucker for early Neil Diamond records. This is a definite «feel good» song for me.
I was the only kid you had ever met with 13 Rush records, chronologically ordered in my tape case.
I would say «Honesty» by Billy Joel, because it is the only song I have ever performed a solo karaoke performance of!
I don’t own one single soundtrack.
Just a great song, great vibe. It’s from the album he wrote for a kids television show in the 70's.
