While I am a great fan of old music, and appreciate other people extolling its virtues in certain ways, the "songs about record collecting" subgenre is particularly irking ...

A short-lived relationship I reckon, look how she handles those records @ 1:10 on.
It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

You have blustered that you could write a better tune than NO before ... and failed comically.


It wasn't so much that I was boasting - that was your (and a few others') misinterpretation.

What I was saying was that many of us here could put together a song that would be every bit as good as a NO album track, given a day or two in a studio. It's not an outlandish idea by any means.

It isn't. You've just picked the wrong band to make that point about. NO are one of the few with a genuinely complex musical intelligence, there's so much going on within their music (at their best anyway).

Oh what absolute and utter rubbish. Really - total shite.

One or two songs aside, their output is colourless unmelodic machine-driven crap.

I would post a song to destroy that contention...but then I'd end up posting a New Order song to the "worst songs ever" thread and we can't have that! :)

:lol:

For the most part, I agree. Here's one I used to like a lot more than I do now, although now I find it annoying. Brian Ray is McCartney's current guitarist.

Don't fake the funk on a nasty dunk!

:D Though he may be thinking, Look at what she's doing to those records, maybe she'll do that to me.

Wow, yeah that's not good. Totally infantile. Not as bad as the previous couple songs posted, but very not good.

The fact that you have recorded a load of beeps on some app on your phone is completely and utterly irrelevant to what we're talking about.

Don't think it's ever been nominated, but I've always found this teeth grindingly bad.

Absolutely, it's one of the most boringly repetitive records for a start. Your heart sinks when it begins because you know it's just going to go on forever in that vein. I mean what is there to enjoy?

And no defence from me, I agree 100%. Along with Bopeepian Raspberry and any other pseudo-operatic bilge they put their name too, sure proof that they are by far the worst successful 'rock' band (actually I think they are at the stinking heart of prog) ever to emerge from these shores.
I despise them.

It's relatively short, has a decent solo and hasn't the same irritation-level as Who Wants To Live Forever which really is a dirge.

You say it's short, but it's a dog years song, one minute is about equivalent to seven when listening to it!
