Quite a pleasant little number. What year was it made?

I'm the opposite of you, the lyrics are very important to me. That was in German and my German isn't too hot (ie; crap). I can say "Ich bin ein kartofsalat" but that's about it.

Sorry couldn't resist :P


I know that one very well actually, never thought I'd hear it in this country though :) Oddly enough, it might be one of the greatest Soviet 'anthems' but musically it's based on a traditional Polish dance Polonez (from French polonaise) examples of which we can find among Chopin's works...

And now, for something completely different.

The Larch.

Einstein he ain't but what a f*****g voice!


Didn't know that thanks Kladivo learned something new :D

15 years ago sounds perfectly OK to me some of the ones I plan to put on will be 40 years old. I'm working on a post that goes back 46 years!

Joe Satriani - Surfing with the Alien.

Not strictly a solo so it can’t go into Guitar solos so decided to put in here because it’s a brilliant track IMHO

I'd say Pratchett only, as real title for this painting is Company of Frans Banning Cocq and Willem van Ruytenburch :)

As for King Crimson, I used to have One Time recorded on a cassette on both sides. 30 minutes of One Time, change side (much faster than rewinding) and another 30 minutes. Could go a whole day like this :)

I said in a post the other day that Motorhead were close to the top of my list of bands I wish I’d gone to see. At the very top of that list are The Beatles.

The Beatles influenced everyone around them back in the 1960’s. I remember sitting in front of our black and white telly watching one of their first ever TV performances in 1963 and thinking ‘’I’ve never heard anything like this before’’ the whole point was neither had anyone else.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iim6s8Ea_bE

From that early recording they went on to break every rule in the book and raised the bar to where it had never been before. I still firmly believe that Sgt Peppers played a massive influence on Pink Floyd. Others say The Floyd started progressive rock but I hear bits of The Beatles in almost every song Pink Floyd wrote in the first five years. Sgt. Peppers was for my money THE ground breaking album of the 1960’s and from that point everything else musically just happened.

The second clip is the last public appearance The Beatles made in January 1969. By April 1970 they had all gone their separate ways.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JlWFpdPX45g

I can still hear The Beatles chord structures being used today and let’s face it Oasis who were arguably one of the biggest bands of the last 18 years are little more than a Beatle tribute band.

For me not having seen The Beatles live has left a void almost as big as never having sex would have left. I just can’t imagine what that gig would have been like.

This last clip kind of sums up what The Beatles meant to me. Released in August 1968, Hey Jude was at the time the longest single to top the UK singles chart at just over 7 minutes. It went on to top the American charts for 9 weeks and sold 8 million copies.

August 1968 was also the first time I had sex :) Sadly the single lasted longer than I did :oops: :oops: :oops:

OK, that's enough of music that smells of moth balls :twisted:
We all know that everything was much better in the days when everything was much better but the music moved on and thaks gods for that! ;)

Here's one of my favourite voices. Musically the band is inconsistent but that man can sing! Ladies, gentlemen and creatures, I give you
