Since I've been loving you - Led Zepplin

Not really my favorite - but one that I can't see myself ever getting sick of. I think it was a very inspired performance. I feel everyone of Pages notes as if I were playing it myself. Plant is wearing his heart on his shoulder....I dunno, I can just feel it.

This thread should be printed and mailed to every freakin' record executive in the world so they can notice 99% of their current "talent" roster is missing from a thread where guys who care about music and sound say what they like.

PS: I'd like to put a shout in for "I Want You / She's So Heavy" as a top contender anyhow...incredible emotion.

eh, they could care less. the target audience for pop music is not us.

ditto on "i want you". the heavy part in that tune (all the arp patterns) may be the heaviest part to any rock song ever. strange that there's none of the "heavy" cliches (screaming w/ distortion on your voice, power chords, etc, copped bonham beat). that **** is just evil sounding....like the "end of the world" noise at the end as well

Have fun listening to EJ. I'd prefer silence.

There was a 'making of' article about 'Not in Love' in a recent SOS. Those guys were ahead of their time. They made multi-layered loops of the BG vocals, one for each note, then placed the set on a multi-track and 'played' it using faders on the console. Amazing sound for then (and now). Cool song too.

comfortably numb- pink floyd

I've listened to this song a silly number of times. It never grows old to me and i still to this day shed a small tear when i hear it. Not because it reminds me of a personal experience or anything like that but just cause it sounds so damn beautiful.

a super close second would have to be the rain song by zep.



Other than that, i might of picked something by tori amos. Maybe "precious things" or "cooling".

I've given this a lot of thought...

I've got it down to a close call between "Wouldn't It Be Nice" by the Beach Boys and "Winter" from Tori Amos.

One just floats me away, one just tears my heart out.

So far, that's as close as I can get to a fave.

I had to "get in the mood" and play this song today. My album must be over 25 years old and still sounds perfect. No pops, scratches, noise, or anything. thumbsup

I forgot just how awesome it us. (Why was that pointless remake done, anyway?)
The soundscapes, transitions, vocal pads, etc. on this song are simply out of this world. And it is one song that you just want to crank up loud, none of the modern harshness, brightness and such today's music.

30 years of advancement in recording, keyboards, vocal techniques since this song was made (1975) and yet ...

I'll go first:

"Bridge Over Troubled Water" by Simon & Garfunkel

First of all, it's a beautiful, well written song, second the recording is unbelievably beautiful. From what I remember it was recorded in a hundreds of years old church in New York with nothing but a couple of tube mics (probably Neumann U47's) into some old pres and then into Fairchild limiters and that's it. So simple and so pure.

The vocal delivery by Art is unbelievable. The song has so much soul.

Simply vocal, piano, minimal drums and bass at the end and wonderful strings and that's it.
To give credit where it is due, a lot of the beauty comes from the incredible orchestration by my dear friend and mentor Jimmie Haskell who won a Grammy for this arrangement.

His other Grammys are for "Ode To Billie Joe" by Bobby Gentry. Starts out with a single guitar and blossoms into incredible strings which match the lyrics perfectly. I would recommend any aspiring producer and/or arranger to listen to this track.

3rd Grammy for "If You Leave Me Now" by Chicago. What can I say. Superb!

We belong together (Rickie Lee Jones)

I cant tell you exactly why but each time i listen to this song, it moves me.
The singer, the musicians, the song, the lyrics, the arrangments and the engineering, it might be the one and only song that seems to me REALLY perfect.

Heart of Saturday Night

Heart of Saturday Night, Tom Waits, actually the whole album Heart of Saturday Night from 1974 would produce 5 of my top 10. If his "Glitter and Doom" tour plays near by go see him, 1000 miles is reasonable, its the most entertaining "Vaudeville" show in 75 years if not ever, regards ,,deda,,

I know this is cheating, a bit, but for my money the best-ever single is Penny Lane/Strawberry Fields Forever.

Penny Lane so perfectly captures joy.... hard to write a song that's happy, not sappy.

SFF is a great song about self awareness, with a typical Lennon mix of concrete images, thoughts and a conversational vocal pattern.

My favorite song, though, is either Hey Jude or Let It Be, depending upon my mood.... with "Golden Slumbers" right up there too.

Such expressive vocals, restrained production (even the Spectorized version of "LIB" is ok). If Golden Slumbers were a full song instead of a snippet, it might have been the best thing Paul ever wrote.
