i like to listen -- really listen -- to old stones songs to pick apart their component parts. i listen to 'em, and just try to hear the bass line, or the piano. "under my thumb" was always one of my most favorite stones songs for the very reason that it's got a great backbeat and the xylophone is a terrific complement.edelstein
i don't really have anything brilliant to comment about other than i heart you two. : )
I don't know much about 60's music either - I can't even place that song (no MP3 playing allowed here at work!).But I do know that whenever I feel bad about myself when I party a shade too hard, I always have Keith Richards to look towards to make me feel better about myself (a lot better)...
Brian - I, too, like to listen to older songs and pick apart the different chord progressions and individual notes that are being played by various instruments. For instance, with Under My Thumb I cannot agree with you more how distinctive the xylophone is. One thing that always amazes me is that sometimes when I'm out at a bar or restaurant and I recognize the melody of a song and I cannot hear the lyrics, you realize how many songs at their core sound the same.Alexa - We heart you too :)Bill - I know what you mean. Sometimes when I've tied one on and I go in public the next day I feel like people are staring at me like I was Nick Nolte in the following mug shot:http://www.thesmokinggun.com/mugshots/nolte1.html-Jose
