Are you lonely right now:
I looked in several thesauri and dictionaries but I couldn't find a
better word. I
would change it if I could. Please believe me. If you have a better word, then
please e-mail me: here.
Let me take a moment to explain what this place is all about.
There have been
times when I have been listening to a song and there is a cresendo or a sudden
burst of horns or a chorus that completely changes the song. During these
moments, my brain goes berzerk and signals the release of some adrenaline in
anticipation of that moment, then the endorphines come piling in. My whole
body feels the music. I like when this happens, so here are some songs that
produce this effect. Please don't misunderstand me: this has nothing to with
"Another Drinkin' Song" by The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
This song starts out pretty slowly compered to most of the other Bosstone
songs. About half way through the song, Dicky is working his way to the
chorus and the horn section comes in "da-da da-da da-da da-da..." The, all
of a sudded, the whole band kind of explodes into a fast-paced ska tune.
There's one moment before the explosion that I really like. I know what's
coming and I know that it is fantastic.
"Salvation" by The Blinking Underdogs
This is one of the best new songs I have heard. It starts out
really slow. After
about 30 second there's some distorted guitar and, eventually, this makes up
the verse. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, the chorus takes control and
slows it down several notches with a very relaxed rocksteady-type rythem. It
picks up a bit for the remainder of the chorus, back to some great ska, then
back to the distortion. I am amazed that a chorus could have such a
remarkable effect. It's too good; there must be something else going on there.
"Reeko" by NOFX
This song is not what I expected when I first heard the album "Punk
Drublic." It's pretty much a reggea tune with a burst of punk at the end. The
guitar solo in this song is too goo to be described. It's not too technical, or
fast, or anything like that, but if more guitar solos were like this, then the kids
would forget all about the shite known as dance music.
"Sour Grapes" by Fat Cactus
These guys have a great horn section and it is particularly evident
in the chorus.
They come in with a "na na na-na na, na-na na na-na na" that little kids like to
say. I always hated the kids who would say that, but this context has
completely changed my mind.
"Almost Anything Goes" by The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
There's a part near the end of this song where Dicky sign the chorus
really fast. There are no rests in between lines; it's just a fast-paced blitzkreig
of words. The adrenaline sure gets going by the time it's time for a breath.
Note: No sex, just music. Get your mind and adrenal
glands on the music.
