My deep, dark secret is that my playlist consists of nearly 1/3. . . Counting Crows. I'm a fan by default, because I was name after a song of theirs. *Hangs head in shame* If anyone asks, it's after a They Might Be Giants song, kapeesh?

Oh please, I have no problem admitting to liking any of the people I like but I know when they fall into this category so here we go:

I think those two need no explanation.

I made that one larger so everyone can appreciate the truly magnificent video which, until wurwolf pointed it out to me, I wasn't aware of. I don't think he's ever been on a horse before or since that vid. :D

(this one's being played if I ever kark it and have to be interred somewhere).

Okay I don't think that has any resonance outside of the UK so maybe Basehart can explain how naff it is.

I have many more but that should be good to be going along with. :)

Love Glen Campbell.  Always been partial to Galveston.

And he must have ridden a horse in True Grit.  He couldn't have gone the entire movie without being on a horse at least once.  Maybe he just sucks at cowboy.

Yeah I'm exaggerating slightly there, he does indeed sit on a horse in True Grit, he doesn't look any more steady though...

I have numerous "guilty pleasures" from my childhood (Midnight at the Oasis, Wildfire, Undercover Angel and other similar Top 40 AOR from the early to mid-70s)


but the one song that I could NEVER admit to my friends I like is

Careless Whisper from Wham

I would so totally lose all my metal cred.  :(

Why would anybody ridicule somebody for liking Rush, especially from that era? Rush was was consistently putting out kick-ass, classic music for well over a decade.

yea but rivendell isn't your typical rock song, it's more in the genre of a lot of jethro tull.

Wait is there something wrong with liking Tull? Because I love Tull.

Post by: D.B. Barnes on November 02, 2011, 04:44:05 PM
Yeah, who gives a shit about genre? One of the reasons bands like Rush and Tull were so awesome was because they were so good at mixing genres.

no i like tull too i've got passion play on vinyl. its just  the people i went to school with at the time didn't give a shit about trad. classic rock and thought it was stupid. believe me i was raised on nothing but rock from the 60's-80's. hell i only started listening to "new" rock last year and even then it's mostly metal. my dad gave me his record collection which i still regularly listen too and try to build whenever i find a running record store. it's mostly zepplin and floyd with acdc, zz top, skynard, ozzy, alice cooper, and a lot others mixed in. if you guys like Tull check out a band called turisas. in fact here's a cover of tull's broadsword they did.
http://www.youtube.com/v/7RKuyooCYDw?

edit: i like a few songs from songs from the wood as well, the two you mentioned, velvet green, and pibroach. the guitar intro to pibroach is fucken epic.
edit part deux: ever realize a part of hunting girl is about S&M? ( with the subtext being a mockery of british aristocracy.)

Not sure that's subtext really,which would suggest something not apparent. Oh yes I know exactly what it's about, I love a girl in riding gear
(and attended Public School) ;)

Actually depending what it is that appeals to people about Tull, they might want to check out the stuff Ritchie Blackmore and his missus do these days.

aaaaaahh, that just ain't right.

Ian Anderson rocks, anybody that can find a way to prominently feature a flute in a rock song is awesome.
besides.... One of my favorite covers is this.

I've admitted here before to liking that Boom-Boom-Pow.

I will now admit that I think Dev has a purdy voice, and in rocking out to her, I have tangentally, unintentionally, and much against my will, rocked out to Kanye. I really must stop listening to the local Pop station. :^)
