The PICK ONE thread

Postby Pocketplayer » Thu Nov 14, 2013 11:25 am

Pick ONE song of a band you're into...that ONE you keep going back to over and over.
Brief story behind is cool. Desire might change, but if ONE song comes to mind, post it.
[any style of music: Band and Song]

Stopped listening to pop music for a long time and got back into it. I keep coming back to
this one:

TOTO: Til the End pure groove for me...Jeff plays the perfect amount
of notes. Chorus and the end snare vibe I could listen to all day long. William's vocals
money. (they tried so hard to make cool vid's...if you're under 30, it was lame in the
80's as well)


GENESIS: Squonk in a word why? everything

What the heck is andy sandberg doing in Toto. He sounds just like Joseph Williams.

Put Badfinger, Queen, and the Beach Boys into a blender, and you get this:

Scofield tune was excellent...
Paul...JFish...nice band!

The challenge of ONE tune per band
however exposed already. lol

ONE band ONE tune... (i know, hard to do, but
looking for that ONE)

okay...maybe hoping for too much...Mickey Curry
was a huge influence...how can I forget this cat!
That drum sound was HUGE on the slow Somebody.
What a snare should be. Gave me a drum woody.
(sorry for the one or two gals in here)

i look to Mickey Curry when I need some inspiration, I think that that's how you play drums.



A slower tempo, strange. Curry is so solid.






This is just good.

Not to dominate my own silly thread, but here's my first intro to
Steve Smith. This song got it started for me to see the world outside
of rock as a kid. Wore the LP out with a constant, "WHAT IS HE DOING"
frustration.

Paula Abdul looked good in that Toto vid huh??

God, there are too many to list. I guess I will start when I was coming up and learning to play...then go somewhere in the middle of my years.....then what I am listening to nowadays over and over and over again.

Stewart is the first...he is my favorite. When I was a kid, I was just balls deep into everything Police. This particular live version of this song is everything why I love his playing so much. Totally aggressive, totally his own voice on the kit and to me...total groove. Not James Brown groove...something else. I like it.



Everything about this <album> blew me away. I was already heavy into Gadd...but I must of wore out this CD and this song. The silly man probably did it in one take.



I listen to this almost every week since it came out. There is nothing I don't like about this. Everything and the kitchen sink is in this. Oh, it's Vinnie.



Honorable mention to "Tom Sawyer" by Rush and "Catholic Girls" by Frank Zappa. Neil Peart and Vinnie respectively.
