I was really upset when Freddie died. I couldn't play any Queen records for at least 2 years after his death, as they just reminded me oh how great a loss he was.

He is irreplacable.

Perdita X

It's the last 10 tracks I've listened to - click on it and you'll see my profile on last.fm which gives top tens and stuff - as you may notice, I've been on a superfurrybinge tonight - in fact, Receptacle for the Respectable features a certain Paul McCartney on celery :lol: - SFA worked on some Beatles tracks so he did them a favour back.

I don't deny the cultural importance of The Beatles, but musically I'm not a huge fan, although they did some decent stuff - I prefer The Kinks, The Who, The Stones from the 60's, plus Northern Soul, Stax & ska - I probably would have been a mod, I think.

There are only 7 sentence patterns:

N-V
N-V-N
N-V-N(IO)-N(DO)
N-LV-N
N-LV-ADJ
V-N
QUESTION

This is the way I was taught in HS and in college --lucky for for me, by the same professor! So it's the way I teach grammar.


Appalachia, oi, where to begin.
Hatfields and McCoys.
Hillbillies.
Incest /Inbred.
Mountain men.
Chewing tobacco.
A-merr-i-cuns, generally believed to be "real Americans" as opposed to us silly Democrats.


So much good music that I've forgotten...
Yes, Tangerine Dream! Pink Floyd is great, but I've always been an ELP fan.
Beatles annoy me, Stones are superior.
Elvis is very popular in Appalachia.

In response to needing a comment from the US on Elvis - I do love Elvis! His approach was fun, simple and sexy. What was novel about Elvis (if I understand correctly) was that he was a white man singing songs you'd expect to hear a black man sing, and dancing like no one had seen (on television) before.

I do love the Beatles! Now they were far more complex. I remember reading something Douglas Adams wrote about listening to one of their songs for the first time (Drive My Car?), and saying how blown away he was because he'd just never heard anything like it before.

I think it's an apples and oranges situation.

If you listen to Hey Jude, at approx the 2'55" Paul (or possibly John) says "Oh f#*king h#ll" coz they played a wrong note.

Likes - blues - perhaps th emost sincere music on the planet

also like folk, rock, soul etc

dislikes - badly performed music, insincere music, mawkish music, overly negative music

a lot of indie, electro and death metal come into those categories, as does country...
