Quoted from Frippertron:

You want Peter Gabriel's best? Than look no further than this:

It's good, but not perfect although a double album being composed when the band is falling apart is never going to make for pure alignment. The perfect Gabriel era album would be Foxtrot (w supper's ready) and the perfect Collin's era would be Trick of the Tail and Duke.

But they're all good.

I just have to double down on the "Pat Travers Band Go for what you know Live" as one of the best unknown live albums of all time!
Mars ,Pat ,Tommy and Pat are one of the best line ups ever. This album is relentless , not a second in between killer songs and musicianship. Thank you for posting it! " From the streets of Toronto to the streets of London, now here to kick your ass, the Pat Travers Band" thats the opening coda.

Quoted from ghostbc:

That was actually a Top 40 album back in the day, and received endless airplay.

The cover of "Boom Boom Out Go The Lights" had much controversy because it's about a guy who's girlfriend doesn't want to see him any more; so he's going out to find her and beat her unconscious.

Many radio stations refused to play it.

STAN LEWIS - BOOM BOOM OUT GO THE LIGHTS

No kiddin'
I'm ready to fight
I've been lookin' for my baby all night
If I get her in my sight
Boom boom! Right here! Out go the lights!

No kiddin'
I'm ready to go
When I find her boy don't you know
If I get her in my sight
Boom boom! Out go the lights!

I thought I treat my baby fair
Now she's getting in my hair
If I get her in my sight
Boom boom! Out go the lights!

I never felt this mad before
When I just found out she don't want me no more
If I get her in my sight
Boom boom! Come on! Out go the lights!

#456 2 years ago

True but kind of a one hit wonder as far as radio is concerned (on the east coast at least) and a cover. There original tunes are what never really got the notice I think it should have back then and now. I never thought of Boom boob out go the lights as controversial . I kind of took it as he was gonna fight the guy he found her with. I would say " Snortin Whisky Drinkin Cocaine " was a slight hit but was not played for long.

#457 2 years ago

Fun read, most I agree with, many I don't and many I've never heard (or even heard of).

I can't go a full year without listening to
Peter Gabriel - So
Paul Simon - Graceland
Jellyfish - Bellybutton (and Spilt Milk)
It's not Spring until Van Halen 1 is blaring in my car.
Can't drive through mountains or Ozarks without XTC- Skylarking

Future thread idea... Greatest debut albums

Quoted from ghostbc:

Not really.

He never mentions a guy .

Clearly his girl no longer wants to see him, and now he's going to beat her into unconsciousness:

I never felt this mad before
When I just found out she don't want me no more
If I get her in my sight
Boom boom! Out go the lights!

(too bad the lyrics were not "when I get her in my SIGHTS, boom boom out go the lights" that would have been an even darker ending)

Absolutely Vid, being old enough to remember, that song was played a lot back then. I don't think people analyzed the meaning much, it's just a great ripping rock song especially the live version and that's what made it popular. On the live album he has the crowd yell "out go the lights!" after he says boom boom. Of course we were not too politically correct overall in those days

Quoted from xsvtoys:

That's for sure.

Remember the Beatles saying that they would murder their ex-girlfriends rather than see them with a new man?

Those guys loved to celebrate violence against women.

The Beatles - Run For Your Life

Well I'd rather see you dead, little girl
Than to see you with another man
You better keep your head, little girl
Or I won't know where I am

You better run for your life if you can, little girl
Hide your head in the sand little girl
Catch you with another man
That's the end little girl

Well I know that I'm a wicked guy
And I was born with a jealous mind
And I can't spend my whole life
Trying just to make you toe the line

Let this be a sermon
I mean everything I've said
Baby, I'm determined
And I'd rather see you dead

"Baby, Let's Play House"

Oh, baby, baby, baby, baby baby.
Baby, baby baby, b-b-b-b-b-b baby baby, baby.
Baby baby baby
Come back, baby, I wanna play house with you.

Well, you may go to college,
You may go to school.
You may have a pink cadillac,
But don't you be nobody's fool.

Now baby,
Come back, baby, come.
Come back, baby, come.
Come back, baby,
I wanna play house with you.

Now listen and I'll tell you baby
What I'm talking about.
Come on back to me, little girl,
So we can play some house.

Now baby,
Come back, baby, come.
Come back, baby, come.
Come back, baby,
I wanna play house with you.
Oh let's play house, baby.

Now this is one thing, baby
That I want you to know.
Come on back and let's play a little house,
And we can act like we did before.
Well, baby,
Come back, baby, come.
Come back, baby, come.
Come back, baby,
I wanna play house with you.

Yeah.

Now listen to me, baby
Try to understand.
I'd rather see you dead, little girl,
Than to be with another man.
Now baby,
Come back, baby, come.
Come back, baby, come.
Come back, baby, I wanna play house with you.

Oh, baby baby baby.
Baby baby baby b-b-b-b-b-b baby baby baby.

It's RUN FOR YOUR LIFE, last song on Rubber Soul (both the EMI and Capitol versions) and written by Lennon. He didn't like the song at all, I myself always liked it as one of their best album bracks. I never knew he lifted two lines directly from that Elvis song. Although Lennon's song starts off with that lyric so it's more pronounced.

You can't really use Elvis as a defense, he used to have sex with 14 year old children.

#468 2 years ago
Quoted from vid1900:

I'll start the game off with a truly perfect disc, Robin Trower's Bridge of Sighs.
8 perfect songs, perfectly mixed, if you have good headphones this is the place to try them out.
The whole disc is tuned down to Eb, so Trower gets his "evil Jimi Hendrix" vibe going full bore.

» YouTube video

Saw Robin Trower in May 2007 at a little pizza joint in Salem, Oregon. Maybe 40 people there. KILLER show!
That guy rocks, bullshitted & took photos with fans after the show.

I have no opinion at all. Just pointing out where the lyric originated.

In interviews, Lennon expressly stated his regret about the Run For Your Life lyric. It's unfortunate because the tune itself was catchy.

Agreed, it is the perfect way to end the album. Really fits on the Capitol version more due to the "country/folk" sounding collection of songs.

#472 2 years ago

Anyway there are a zillion songs that have really terrible lyrics that people have no clue about, but they just love the song. Two that I can think of that I had to explain to someone are I Don't Like Mondays by the Boomtown Rats and Turning Japanese by the Vapors. The look on their face when they found out what those songs are really about!

By the way, the Vapors supposedly have claimed that the song doesn't really mean what it is infamous for. I call BS on that. Come on, just read the lyrics, give me a break it is obvious.

The Boomtown Rats song is a particularly serious one for me because to this day I can remember that day that the actual event happened, and at the time I lived in that area. Really sad.

I've seen License to Ill and Check Your Head mentioned but the best and most influential of all BBoy's albums was actually Paul's Boutique. It set the stage for what BBoys were to become which was a hell of a lot more than party rap. If you're a fan of BBoys I HIGHLY SUGGEST you listen to public radio KEXP Seatle's retrospective on the album. They played every song that was sampled and went into some deep discussions regarding the band and the "new" direction. I was so impressed that I donated. The show is several hours long but believe me time will fly when you listen to it:

KEXP deserves every penny that people donate. It is the best radio station in the world, hands down.

Two more contributions to this thread:

Yeralbum (resized).jpg

Rides again (resized).jpg

Both of these albums are absolutely perfect. Trio rock n' roll from '69 and '70 with a very young Joe Walsh. If you've never heard anything from these albums aside from Funk #49, do yourself a favour and give them a try. The gritty hammond organ on "Tend my Garden" is pure gold.

#486 2 years ago

You said "gimme a perfect album", here's a band that does really good pop/punk covers. And this album is one I can listen to whenever!

Quoted from MrDucks:

Albums that even after all this time when I start listening I'm not going to stop until it's over.

Aeroplane over the Sea was one of those subtle, but deeply cerebral albums. Changed my whole view of recorded music. Doesn't need to be layered to death to be deep.

First listen usually goes "This isn't what I normally like, but I like it for a reason I don't know yet". Then you listen to it ad nauseam until it unwinds itself.

Same thing happened the first time I heard Sung Tongs by AnCo. Thought it was total trash hipster crap initially, but couldn't stop listening to it. I think all the best albums are like this, not too try hard about themselves, but capture the raw essence of what it is supposed to be. In other words, you believe what they're selling.

Thanks for the reminder on this Vid. I grew up in that era but never bought the LP. Just picked up the CD and have been playing it for the past week.

I look forward to listening to some of the others mentioned in this thread.

This was technically a demo I guess but I thought it had so much promise for a full length release. The singer went on to make the Jackass movies

Here's "The Knife Song" made nominally famous by Jason Lee's segment in Spike Jonze/Blind's Video Days. His corny ad libs even made the CD
