I actually thought this thread was going to be about Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress by The Hollies.
Very disappointed that it isn't!
No, jelly and cat crap are not in the same category. (maybe I'm assuming too much here, but I've never considered cat crap as food). This is all music. Dynamic contrast can add greatly to song. My comments were simply based on all the complaints about it.
For me it's always been this one. 60 seconds of epic power-ballad horn intro and then...
It used to bother me but now it doesn’t.
Ice Ice Baby and probably countless others if samples count.
That had to be one hell of a show.
I will get crap for this but Moby Dick. Dig the first time through. Then drum solo. Hate drum solos. Also hate unaccompanied guitar solos usually. Bonham is top three of fave drummers but hate drum solos. Only drum solo I ever dug was back in the 80s. A band with T Lavitz from tue dregs, buzzy meekins from outlaws and danny joe brown, guitar player I think played with Bonnie Raitt or was it Bramlett. Drums were butch and jaimo from the allmans. It was like a single drummer with 8 extremeties. Can not remember a single song they played but remember the solo.
In my youth I would have said Elton John's Funeral for a Friend. I was into more dramatic prog rock and loved the intro, but dismissed the rest of the tune as a typical Elton John song. I know better now.
See, to me "Love Alive" is near pop perfection and the verse riff is killer.
This song flows from section to section as a song should. I had this on 8-track and the whole album brings back excellent memories from my youth.
With ELO dominating the arrangement.
This one always bugged me. Still a good song, but the way it starts I keep thinking there was going to be more.
Anything with Gene Krupa on the drums
Also, so many 80's Canadian bands. This dude was a monster player with great riffs but when the vocals come in, well, talk about neutered.
Good song, start to finish.
I read through the whole thread to see if this was posted. My opinion of it is less generous though - monster opening riff, and then an entire song I have absolutely no use for, a song that refuses to rock even in the slightest, all anchored by Jon Anderson's "I have my nuts stuck in the back of my nose" voice.
Nah those guys rock all the way through
Had a feeling it would be about this one!
How about Black Betty by Ram Jam. Kick ass intro, killer song then...huh? Should've been two songs.
I’m just surprised so many peeps haven’t heard the song before
Don't you mean terrible intro followed by a terrible song?
