This was really hard. Any piece by Genesis pre 1979 is without a doubt my favorite "Rock Music" but Supper's Ready is pretty much a religious experience for me. And that is saying a lot!

I think the Pink Floyd piece was decided on mainly in jest. Not that I don't like it, I do immensely, but I just love the title! laugh

If I am going to listen to this "rock music stuff" it had better be damn creative stuff and worth my time.

Teach Your Children is just plain good.

Now that you mention it, I'd never really noticed! I did, however, always think that that song was incredibly harmonically adventurous for PS.

the original is the chorale;"Ich will hier bei stehen" from the st mathtew passion BWV 244.

its not accidentally similar, paul simon freely admits that he set his words to the music of the chorale.
from interview with Art Gaurfunkel:

Art Garfunkel : Well, I had a great feeling for that song. I had shown Paul the Bach chorale that is the basis of that song. Then we split up. Then Paul wrote "American Tune. " And I knew that was the kind of song that was very Simon & Garfunkel. Had we not split up, that would have been a "Bridge Over Troubled Water." I had a lot of fun writing that part because it had so much feel. I felt like I was partially the midwife that gave birth to that song.

American Tune" has a long and interesting history. The melody can be traced back to the German composer Hans Leo Hassler (1564-1612), who originally wrote it as a love song called "Mein Gmth ist mir verwirret" ("My mind confuses me"). The tune was later transformed into a hymn with the lyrics "Herzlich thut mich verlangen" and later "O Haupt voll' Blut und Wunden." Johann Sebastian Bach borrowed the melody for his "St. Matthew Passion," where it can be heard five times at different points in the oratorio. Today the melody is still found in hymnals of many denominations, with the lyrics "Because All Men Are Brothers," among others. In 1973, Paul Simon continued the transformational life of the ancient tune when he penned the lyrics beginning "Many's the time I've been mistaken" and called his song "American Tune." Rolling Stone declared it to be the best song of that year!

You won't hear it in my house! Voted by moi as the most chauvinistic song ever written. As a young girl I used to love that song to dance to. Nice beat. Then I grew up and realized the Stones were pigs. Talented pigs. But, pigs.

Jack,
This is driving me crazy. It's like playing Name That Tune but I'm trying to name the artist without googling. Who did you say performed Sky Pilot? For some unknown reason I love that song.

Actually, I think it was Eric Burden, after the Animals broke up.

EDIT: Nope. Just checked Google. It WAS the Animals.

(I have so much 1965-1975 rock trivia in my head, there is no room for anything else.)

Favorite Animals Song: We Gotta Get Out Of This Place.

Oh, yes, those are good, too. Possibly even better than Sky Pilot but I still have to go with Sky Pilot for some unknown reason. see edited post above.

I also like the Zombies and the Kinks but I'm still having trouble with my memory. Any suggestions?

well, i beg to differ, but i think on that particular album, the best song is "Attics of my Life", with "Ripple" a close second...

Ed, have you ever tried to play any Steve Winwood music on the piano? Good stuff. A nice break from classical IMHO.

Peggy,

I hadn't thought about that. Any particular sheet music that you recommend?


(BTW, you forgot me... frown )

I've been playing Can't Find My Way Home (1969). A friend gave me the sheet music and now I'm looking for more. I was hoping you would have some suggestions. I love it.

How did I forget you? Do you mean the question? Best PM me. I've been so tired and overwhelmed the past couple of days. The Coffee Room is nice and lighthearted. (I don't really need to think too much). Plus I'm bummed I'm going to miss the party. I missed the last one remember?

What a great song! Certainly on my all time favorite list along with another I neglected to mention: Little Wing.

Someone, I think Allison Kraus, has a great cover of Can't Find My Way Home.

Off topic: Going to see the Thunderbirds at MacDill this weekend. Will think of you. Do you ever fly down here? We're not far (about 10 minutes) from Punta Gorda. You can come over and try out the Sohmer. It's no match for your BB though.

edit: just found out there will be no Tomcats. frown bummer

very controversial album cover in its time, and when i think of it, im not sure if it would pass censorship in today's child abuse awareness mood.

nice thing about this forum, is that many of us think alike in some things and not in others.

Once during a bluegrass jam our crazy banjo player suddenly starting ripping into that tune. A full blown jam circle developed around it. I later tabbed it out for Dobro and sometimes use it as a medley filler on open stages.

I can't do my musical tastes justice here, but I can perhaps try to at least dictate what's running through my head right now.


Mahavishnu Orchestra
Celestial Terrestrial Commuters
or
One Word

Rush
the Camera Eye
or
YYZ
(depends on the day... there are probably at least 30 others as well)

Radiohead
Let Down

Talking Heads
(Nothing But) Flowers

U2
Desire

Bach
Chaconne in D minor

Rachmaninov
Rhapsody on a theme by Paganini

Liszt
Trancendental Etude in F Minor, (no. 10)

Steely Dan
Two Against Nature (man that is one heck of a groove)

Police
can't pick a favorite right now, but Steward Copeland rules, as do the Police in general

Peter Gabriel
Washing of the Water

Genesis
Harold the Barrel

Talk Talk
Inheritance

Ok, that's enough for now... perhaps more hard rock or more classical later.
As I said, this is just what I hear in my head right now that sounds good.
