The Doors: LA Woman is the best of all those albums he just listed, great album.  I love "The Cars Hiss By My Window", it's one of my favorite Doors songs.  They say Jim never would have been able to sing another album after that one, he was already losing his voice on it, it's got a real meaty throaty quality from the drugs and drinking.  Great album.

Well, when you're ready to get even MORE into it, start listening to how everything's produced.  That's where Brian's real genius comes in.  For instance: "Wouldn't It Be Nice" is based on ACCORDIONS.  Yes, that's right, he wrote the song for Accordions.  You can hear them playing all through the song... the beauty of it, though, is that I'll bet you never NOTICED there are accordions in the song.  Why? ... because it sounds so fucking good, you're more caught up in the vibe of the song than how he actually did it. 

At what point in your career, do you get the idea to make a song, and immediately the suggestion of recording it on ACCORDION pops in your head? And not just 1 accordion, no, MANY, MANY accordions.  It's like an Accordion symphony.  LOL. 

Then, at the end of the song, when they're saying "Good Night, Baby, Sleep Tight, Baby", TIMPANI come in.  Now; it's not enough that you wrote a song full of Accordions, then covered them up with pianos and guitars... now you get the bright idea, that the ending is perfect, except it needs TIMPANI.  So Brian hires a Timpani player, and hauls full size Timpani drums from an orchestra into the recording studio, for just a few lines of the end of this song.  I'm telling you, this guy is fucking INCREDIBLE.

On top of that, you've got the lyrics, the guy is telling his girl how great it will be when they get married, so they can sleep together.  By the end of the song, he's saying "Good night baby, sleep tight baby"... so he's there with her @ a bed... are they married, or is he just imagining what it will be like when they do get married? 

In case you haven't noticed, "Wouldn't It Be Nice" is my favorite song, by anybody, any band, any time, bar none.  Greatest song ever recorded, in my opinion.

" i guess i just wasnt made for these times"

The strange instrument playing the solo is a Theremin; it's the same instrument that plays the crazy melody in the hook on "Good Vibrations"... the guy recorded these two parts on the same week.  Not only is "I Just Wasn't Made For These Times" the first use of a Theremin in recorded music, the guy playing it on the album INVENTED the fucking thing, it's some kind of ribbon controller that modifies a sound wave... and Brian decides to put it on a song as a solo.

I know, man, I feel ya.  I'm the same way.  The GOOD THING, though, is that you never have to pick which song is better, you know, I mean you can listen to A Day In the Life, AND listen to Wouldn't It Be Nice, that's the beautiful thing about songs like that, they're timeless, we'll be listening to them with the same entusiasm when we're 80, and they were recorded before we were born.

Well, Brian was the lead singer of the Beach Boys, you've probably heard 20 Beach Boys songs.  If you want a single to see if you like it, download

"Good Vibrations" by the Beach Boys.  I'll guarantee you you'll like that.

I have both of those on vinyl, great stuff.

Most hip-hop is now keyboard driven, because the majority of hip-hop workstations have loops and patches that enable somebody with marginal skills to put tracks together,...

Unfortunately, most hip-hop artists gravitated towards the path of least resistance by relying on these pre-set patches. As a result, electric guitar and real musicians became devalued, and a lot of hip-hop now sounds the same.

aw man, still haven't checked up on PInk Floyd??? DAMN

I have all their CD's except for the 2 soundstracks that they did. Theck these in this order:

1. Shine on You Crazy DIamond (from "Wish You Were Here")
2. Hey you (from "the Wall")
3. Dogs (from "Animals")
4. Echoes (from "Meddle")
5. Time (from "Dark Side of the Moon)
6. Wish You Were Here (from "Wish You Were Here)
7. Pigs [3 Different Ones] (from "Animals")
8. Money (from "Dark Side of the Moon")
9. Another Brick in The Wall, Pt.2 (from "the Wall")
10. On The Turning Away (from "A Momentary Lapse of Reason")


As a matter of fact, if u can fit these on 1 CD, record them in this order, you'll have a "Best of Pink Floyd" on your hands
