Rate The Song Above You

First topic message reminder :

by AberdeenSteve on Mon Feb 21 2011, 00:42

The aim of this thread is that I will post a YouTube link up to a song that I am a fan of. The next person that comments rates the song out of ten and then puts his own link up and so on and so on! Hope it picks up, its a way for everyone to be introduced to others music tastes!

I quite liked some of Eels' stuff. 7/10.

And now, one what Macca wrote:

He is a very good and versatile artist Lucky. His lyrics are pretty solid and he can make a song out of anything. Well worth a look at.


7/10 for your song, good song and nice tune but not a massive fan.

Going to play that song from the Heineken ads. Alright song not great. Very catchy though.

When that started, I thought it was good but that I'd have to be in a certain mood to really enjoy it; by the end, I was in that mood. 7.5/10.

He was such a great songwriter. I always wonder how he would have developed as an artist if he'd lived longer. 7.5/10.

GG. Nice one bro. 9/10.
That track, that time, the drugs, the burds, the raw open sex, the resultant jazz & complications... Loved it. Every little second of it.

Never even had to leave the room. Which was grand.

If ye love ballads. And True Love...

One of all time favourite singers this guy!

That gets a 9.5 for me. Love the slowed-down version.

He had more effect on the music we all love, than most will ever realise. Just sayin.

What were himself and Denver ever thinking? Buddy was warned not to fly. Denver just flew off in an experimental plane and landed it in Montrerrey. An experimental plane? zen

Peter Paul and Mary's version is the one I know, but seeing as John Denver wrote it: 7.5/10. There's a story worth sharing about this song: my mum was putting my two younger sisters to bed one night and said, rather than sang, the chorus to them. They burst into tears.

I don't own any of Arcade Fire's records, but I've seen footage of them live before and they are one hell of a live band. 7.5/10.

I like the sentiment of that song. I dislike everything else about it - the production, the snare sound, the over-emoting lead singer. 4.5/10.

Yuck. 0/10. Reminds me of 70s sitcoms for some reason.

Found this a couple of days ago. Its a cover of the theme song to one of the best sci-fi series ever made:

What exactly do you mean by "neither here nor there type music"? If you're going to criticise it, at least put some substance to it. Actually, I can describe it for you quite well, its modern country & western.

As for the lyrics, if you'd watched the series, or even seen the movie Serenity, you'd know they fit perfectly.


Oh and as for that German stuff you posted, it sounds like something Der Fuhrer would have had playing at one of his rallies. 0/10.

It's a poor imitation of proper country & western, lacks soul and she has a weak voice. We're not here to judge the movie; all I'm saying is that song doesn't move me at all. I hope you don't have a problem with my opinion which has more substance than that song.

By the way dyrewolf - you think it's OK to criticise the song above yours and write:

"Yuck. 0/10. Reminds me of 70s sitcoms for some reason."

What is that supposed to mean? Are you sensitive to 70s sitcoms and other people's opinions as well?
