First topic message reminder :

Mac started a really good thread today and while I'm not as fussy about things going off topic as some people, it does seem a shame to drown out Mac's thread with music chat - so I think we'll have a music corner for us golfers (in addition to the forum-wide music section)

I know Kwini is keen on his music, often throwing musical references into his ballwasher topics (I remember one of his last efforts on the old site being entitled The Boys Are Back In Town, and the conversation going off into Thin Lizzy territory!

S_R (on the other thread) made a reference to "hating the Beatles" - discuss! Whistle

Hi Kwini. I "found him" when a UK radio DJ said that The River album was number one in America and I bought the album on a whim. Best thing I ever did. Seen him several times, always gives value, even starting concerts before advertised time! He said in July next year he will have been playing music for fifty years.

I'm never wrong

Does anyone offer better value in a live show? Not in my experience.

in a word...No

In several words, the guy is amazing, huge quality back catalogue and an equally huge influence on other artists. A few people wont make the connection but Mick Jones of the Clash is a huge fan and of all the punk bands, they were the ones who always gave that 2 & a half hour+ performance.... something none of the other punk bands did and something Jones maintains he picked up on from being a Springsteen fan.

I know a lit of people love the Boss and fair play, each to their own, but Id rather eat my own live than sit through two hours of his music.
Philadelphia is a good song...and that's it for me really.

I know quite a few bands that play epic sets like Stringbean does. They don't have the crass jingoism that he has either

Surely the point is Springsteen doesn't need to try so hard nowadays - but he does! Speaks volumes for the man IMHO!

Agree nbs, except for Born In The USA (which I don't think is in his top 200 tracks) it's been much more about "Jersey", girls and the working man.

He's New Joisey through and through and that's enough for this Brit. Can any of us really identify with interminable songs about small town Americana?

And just listen to Born in the USA (OK I know that it's actually a little anti-American but must people don't realize that and to a casual listener it is just as dull as the chants of USA, USA, USA at any sporting event they turn up at)

I thought Born In The USA was actually an anti war song, not pro American. Maybe there months got a bit lost over the past 30 years or so.
Either way its carp.

Born in the USA was entirely anti-war. I get the impression that Springsteen is proud to be American but doesn't think the USA is anywhere near perfect. I'd hardly call that jingoistic.

If you could have any singers voice who would you choose? (I would suggest Nat King Cole for Super so he could melt the ladies)
Think it would be Tony Bennet, Julio Englasias, or Willie Nelson for me!

That wasn't a Johnny Cash song, he covered a Nine Inch Nail song.



Worst voice ever though has to be Bob Dylan. Just awful.

Eddie Vedder has a cracking voice, though Brandon Flowers is just superb. But Dave Grohl, nicest man in rocknroll and a great voice.

That Johnny cash song pissess over the original. Covers better then the original? Muse - Feeling good.

Must admit I loved Hot Fuss when it first came out, still one of my must play every now and again albums but as time's gone by I have found Flowers increasingly irritating. OK maybe not not as much as Bonio who has gone stratospherically irritating and more or less soured me off U2's music completely which I used to love.

Gone are my days of reading the music press and interviews with singers, I base it on the first 2 killers alums being superb, and Crossfire a great single. But when i saw them at the 02 a couple of years back he just didnt miss a line, his voice was perfect.

Still not as good a show as when The Foo Fighters played Wembley. WOW!

I am getting a bit out of touch with music now though, but really like the rudimental songs, and Macklemore.

Anyway, to get back to Monty's question....who's voice? I'd take Michael Hutchence's voice. Not sure if it was just the voice, charisma probably played a big part. But with Hutchence's voice none of us would have any problems pulling in Aberdeen Wink

Bad day for the Velvet Undergound - Lou Reed Walks on the Wild Side for the last time.

I'm off to see Elvis Costello next week - only been waiting 35 years to see him Live. Will it have been worth the wait.
Saw his Missus just a month ago and have to say she was very disappointing; fingers crossed it doesn't run in the family.

Shame - he inhabited an admittedly short, but somewhat explosive period of my life.

Kwini - I saw Elvis Costello in Liverpool in 1977/8 (?) He was absolutely electrifying then if a little bit scary!

Really hope he hasn't lost that edge.............but

Only time I saw Elton John play he announced his retirement from concert gigs.
That was in 1977 when Rod Stewart used to call him Sharon.
Still amazing to think Sharon's cousin played in a Cup Final.

Would be useful to get some clarification on this point.

Either, Mick is a mate of yours and walked up to girls and asked them to suck your lolly.

Or, you are a Mick Hucknall impersonator. Are you following his current look or do you go for the classic ginger dreadlocks?

Both scenarios are slightly disturbing Shocked

Not dreadlocks no, but am a strawberry blonde. At the time he was the only (barely) acceptable face of ginnerism and so allowed us other red nutted beauties to get a look in.

Yep he's helped out no end. Mind you as I am now 40 something I really am just pleased to still be breathing and hair colour is no longer a problem for me. A lot of my contemporaries seem to be going for the 'monk' look although not seemingly religious.

Anyone listened to The Temperance Movement? Their self titled album is so good. Well worth a listen.

Also, the new Arcade Fire album, Reflektor, has the potential to be a classic. Bit different sound to before, more upbeat and almost disco-esque.
