Usually the Top 100 charts from any era have a few clunkers (from my perspective), so I took a look at 1974.

At #28 is Paul Anka's "Having My Baby".

So, sorry, I will have to disagree with you. :lol:

I do think the 2016 charts are filled with more disposable pop than 1974. Donnie and Marie Osmond are on the Hot 100 of 1974, so you can't complain *too* much about Justin Bieber in 2016. But I'm not really seeing an artist with the musical stature of a Jackson 5 or Aretha Franklin or even John Denver on the 2016 charts.

(You've got a few modern Madonna types, where a lot of the appeal is style, like Rihanna... but a lot of the actual music in pop land just feels disposable to me. I would say this might be an "off my lawn" scenario if it weren't for the feeling that there's a lot of good music *not* in pop land.)




Nicely said.

So look, I had never heard of that song before so I looked it up. While it is certainly not my kind of thing, I think it's a lot better than some other crap I've heard, and really Elton John isn't my style either, and this tune has the same rhodes stuff on it and a rhides is good, so I'm found to give it a pass.



I wasn't familiar with the song, either.

With different lyrics it could have actually been a passable if unremarkable song. I've heard worse musically, but yeah the lyrics are a bit cringe-worthy, yet considering the events that were taking place at the time (the legalization of abortion had just happened), it probably rang a bell with a lot of listeners.

I like me some nice Rhodes. Good find.

I put this playing now while I'm listening to a recorded meeting that I missed and have to fill out a form about it. It definitely made the meeting more listenable :thu:

"Did you hear it? It shows you things... horrible things. The dark inside me. From the other place. I won't go back there - I won't."



Gah I love this song. It's an oldie but a goodie.

ALSO - In the "Up Next" column, PC's Modular Arse shows up. I was like :jam: . I would post a screenshot, but I don't have anywhere to host it.

I'm on a huge Yes kick the last couple weeks. I love all of Yes - Prog yes (Steve Howe Yes), YesWest or PopYes (Trevor Rabin Yes), even Yeggles (Yes + Buggles in the Drama album, one of my favorites :lol:). Even the non-Yes that is still Yes (Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe, Anderson Rabin Wakeman). I can't get enough Yes apparently... as long as it has no Benoit David or Jon Davison on vocals (recent Yes). One sings flat (Benoit) and the other is just... uninspiring to me. Trevor Rabin on vocals or Trevor Horn is still ok to me, but obviously it needs Jon Anderson to really be Yes.

The most incredible thing is that Jon Anderson is 72 and is hitting ALL the notes. Impecable pitch as always. I've NEVER heard him flunk a note. Never. And there's a TON of live stuff online from the last almost 50 years....





And here's Travis' boy playing drums with them (DrumBoy?)

I just love it all. I was 13 when 90125 came out so that's the first Yes I ever heard, Leave It absolutely blew my teenage mind from a musical standpoint (I still think that song is a huge mark in the music industry). 70s Yes took me years to get into, but I love it now.

Ya, I like it when oldsters can still kick it. Weird thing about Anderson's vocals, though: the notes he's hitting aren't as high as you think they are. I'm not a particularly stratospheric tenor, but I can easily hit any note that I've heard recorded by him.

You other singers, try it yourselves, I'd be interested if it's the same for y'all.

The "typical" tenor range is reportedly up to the C above middle C at most. Jon sings a little above that sometimes (on Awaken he hits the D above middle C a bit, for instance). So a bit higher than "standard tenor repertoire", but not unusually so.

Nothing like Rush's Geddy Lee for instance (he goes up to at least an F above a middle C in "Free will").

My natural range is baritone. Except I can't sing. So my natural range is "none". :) But if I could, C5 is actually a strain. In contrast, G2 is the lowest "not very strained" note.

Also, how is this not one of the coolest industrial songs ever written? So 80's.

Also, I can't listen to this song without a big grin. This guy's voice just tickles me. In a good way. And this song gives such a happy vibe.

Velvet Acid Christ are one of those bands that have gone some good songs but you can't dance to them, so they never got much play back when I used to club.
