Are you familiar with Chris Rainbow's solo albums, Thor?

No, not yet.

 

I'm out of this thread for a few weeks, and you guys start quoting lyrics from my second favourite band of all time!

ÇA IRA isn't that bad.

I like ITTLWRW? It has some nice throwbacks to ATOM HEART MOTHER/MEDDLE Floyd.

RADIO K.A.O.S. will always rule.

 

I can't get into CA IRA, but I've only played it all the way through -- like -- twice over the years.

 

I like ITTLWRW too. But for me, AMUSED TO DEATH will always tower on top. For a myriad of reasons (it's one of -- if not THE -- very first CDs I got).

For laughs and giggles, I've rehearsed the following APP songs for karaoke purposes:

 

"Eye in the Sky"

"Don't Answer Me"

"Silence and I"

"Old and Wise"

"What Goes Up"

 

Problem is, very few places have them, and they're not exactly party poppers.

OLD AND WISE is nice to sing, but one has to get that right amount of pathos, and wistfulness.

Thor, try YOU'RE GONNA GET YOUR FINGERS BURNED or STEP BY STEP. PRIME TIME, STEREOTOMY, or LET'S TALK ABOUT ME might work.

Yeah, I've tried all of them (the ones I can find karaoke versions of on Youtube, that is).

 

"Old and Wise" is a great song, but extremely difficult to sing. The high registers are almost impossible at times. I'm not Colin Blunstone!

A Masterpiece of the Québécois répertoire.

 

Because of the long song "Un incident à Bois-des-Filion" on side two of the album "Où est passée la noce?", Beau Dommage has traditionally been classified as a progressive rock group since the 1970s by fans of that genre.

 

Un incident à Bois-des-Filion (1975), a songcycle of 20 minutes 29 sec., whose three distinct points of view (and corresponding musical themes) fill the complete second album side before resolving, interwined, during the finale.

 

"I am in love with a girl who drowned herself between two islands..."

What on earth is this :lol:

"Ameruca".

For one moment, I honestly thought that the man in the video was going to sink to his knees, and shout: "Damn them. Damn them all to Hell!".

Sorry sunshine, our loved ones are not "with us in a different way". They are not watching over us, as angels, and they can't help anybody, because they are well and truly dead, killed by a lying, avaricious, bloodthirsty, organisation called the United States government.
