The golfers' Music Room

Post by Davie on Thu 01 Sep 2011, 2:20 pm

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

Wasn't it a really subdued atmosphere? This game was played before lunch time in Spain, there's something not quite right about morning kick offs.

I heard it was to accomodate the Asian market.

But I agree with you.

That makes sense. But they are ruling out the whole American market at that time, which is puzzling (especially Latam)

Lots of "Queen of Soul" tracks being played.

And, no, I don't mean Helen Shapiro . . . . . . .

The greatest ever voice in popular music? Certainly up there.

I love Say A Little Prayer, one of my all time favourites of all time OK

That’s a top 3 for me as well Wire, Natural Woman a great time as well. Hell of a voice.

She was one of those people I thought had already been dead for years.

Being fair Davie, she's not exactly been in public life much lately.

Being fairer super I was always led to believe if you haven't anything good to say (or even more so, interesting) it's better to say nothing at all

I don't see the point in your post

Her performance just three years ago at the Kennedy Centre Honours was astonishing:

Probably a toss up for me between her and Nina Simone for best voice, I know they’re very different but both just seemed to be that little bit different from their contemporaries. I’d probably go with Nina as a few more of the songs are on my all time list, not much in it though.

I don't see the point in your post

The point is that the fact that she's getting so much coverage (probably deservedly) now she's dead contrasts with how little coverage she's had in the past few years when she was seemingly alive still, leading me to conclude that I thought she was already dead.

On only commenting when you've got something good to say, can you imagine how boring and insipid life would be if you were only supposed to comment on something if it was happy, positive and cheerful? There would be no such thing as debate or a differing of opinion. Can you honestly say you only comment when you've got something positive to say Davie? Of course you don't, but perhaps the next time you make a comment that isn't "good" I'll remind you of that.

Sounds like the pitch for a David Lynch movie.

I don’t discover much new music these days (outside of what my kids like), when I do it’s usuallyfrom a film or tv show soundtrack. I was watching an episode of Big Little Lies and heard a great tune, River by Leon Bridges. A bit gospelly, atmospheric, lots of depth to it, would recommend a listen. Alexa is currently playing me a mix of his songs, not bad. Gotta love Alexa!

Last night I went to see Chris Difford (of Squeeze fame) in a small theatre setting. Amazing night! He's looking his age a little now but it was more like "an evening with...." as he talked about his life with Squeeze as much as he sang. Just an acoustic set with another guitarist but he played all the Squeeze hits - reminded me what a fantastic song write he is. Highly recommended

Leon Bridges is said to be great in concert - playing 8 or 9 dates in GB in November.

Not to harp on super's Aretha comments, but went to see Joan Armatrading recently, a bit diva-ish now but still a great evening.

Like a few Joan songs, Kwini. Drop the Pilot is a top tune, nutty lyrics though. She was on TV a fair bit after Franklin died, was very difficult to warm to.
Alexi Murdoch was another one I discovered from a film soundtrack, Away We Go. Really good film and brilliant tracks, mostly him but also Velvet Underground and George Harrison. Well worth a watch and listen.
