You know ... that particular charge of emotional electricity that you feel when you hear that killer opening riff ... that dynamite lead run ... or that particularly appealing lyrical phrase ... or maybe just that special moment when the artist hits that one particular note ...
We all have at least one song that fits this description.
Guitar-related or otherwise, what's that song for you?
For me, I can never listen to "Baba O'Riley" by The Who without getting that charge. The memorable three power chords by Pete Townshend, the exquisitely sloppy drumming by Keith Moon, and the plaintive vocals by Roger Daltry ... the driving bass of John Entwistle.
Sally, take my hand
We'll travel south cross land
Put out the fire
And don't look past my shoulder.
The exodus is here
The happy ones are near
Let's get together
Before we get much older.
Love these folks! Unique new sound standing out among a host of unique new singers and song writers coming on the scene recently. I was very excited to see them come on stage at the Grammys. Couldn't believe they were relegated to a throw-away 20-second truncated opening to "Barton Hollow" while introducing Taylor Swift so she could sing an overblown version of "Why You Gotta Be So Mean" ... again.
I've been listening/watching these folks for a couple of weeks now. Joy Williams, 'nuf said.
Down by the River, Neil Young
Old Man live from Massy Hall 71, Neil Young
Terrapin Station,(full suite) and live, Grateful Dead
The Weight, The Band
Love live music, go and support the musicians!
could I recommend the John Butler Trio
always very pleasant to listen to
Neil Young - Old Man.
I've been listening to this song for 35 years and it always makes me think of my dad and how much miss him.
Another favorite of mine.
I really get a charge out of "Baba O'Riley" by The Who, when "The Blue Man Group" do it on stage. I saw the DVD that my brother had! So I guess I'm with the company of Jud and others who really get this tune!
I really like the Who's "Who's Next" album, the entire thing!
Anything by Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and Rock Blues I really enjoy.
