80s polysynths. The woozy heavily chorused electric piano. Also the airy pipes of pan synth sound.
When I heard Eddie on the keys on 1984.......VH jumped the shark.
I have to agree. The part where Frank sings “the band was tight” on Honey Don’t You Want a Man Like Me was just unreal.
Amazing but I alway took him as 7sus4. Go figure!
After listening to your example, I totally forgot there's a song on the Lost Highway "Red Bats with Teeth" that I absolutely love. I guess it's that screeching Saxophone sound that drives me crazy.
Sampling keyboards that stretch pitch. Especially with voices. Sounds creepy to me.
The sampled orchestra on Yes’ Owner of a Lonely Heart is so cheesy to my ears. Like a Mattel toy.
Now, if someone directs me to a mind-changing example of flute, I'll be really surprised.
...falling into novelty instruments category: don't know if these were covered but: 1960s/sitar, 70s/violin, 80s/Chatman Stick, 90s/digeradoo, after that i don't know because i stopped listening to new music. The last 10 years i see far too many hipsters with banjos and ukes for my taste. Theres always been attention-seeking dip sticks.
Sorry but i love the pipes on AC/DC tune. In a recent Bon book i read, a interviewee said Bon was familiar with bagpipes well before the song came out. Dunno if its actually true or if he played it on the album. Guess that would be common knowledge if it were true.
Your right I think it was Ian, not sure where I got Tom?
You are correct Sir!
oh forgot steel drums, also cello (s)...
P.S. derailing post alert:
Song i can't imagine without novelty solo? WILD THING w/ ocarina. That is such a cool tone. Now that was hipster genius! (& played by band member too)
Cowbell and producers who dress like this. I have no use for either.
My brother played oboe--he always liked "I Got You Babe" by Sonny and Cher which was maybe IMHO the schmaltziest song of the 60's
In order of dislike
Number one disliked on any music genre: 1. TAMBORINE
3. Saxophone in a Rock song.
Too bad he didn't hold out til the '70s... he could have taken a stab at Muskrat Love.
Didn't that have like bubble sounds or something?
That was the Cap'n's Moog-skrat. A very creative oboist could emulate that sound by dipping the bell into a cup of liquid (perhaps a refreshing beverage), I'd think.
Edgar has seen a sax.
I’m surprised I didn’t see banjos listed... while just about any instrument can be cool in subtle specific songs... Rock is Rock. It’s no longer rock with autotune or weird stuff forced.
