  • Songs You Forgot You Loved

    There's been some good music threads here lately. I love it when I'm driving and something I forgot about comes on the radio. Here's a thread for those songs; post some songs you forgot how much you loved. Any genre, any musician... just music that popped up and struck a positive nerve with you.

    For instance, I forgot about this one until I heard it recently. Great song....

      The full version of In A Gadda Da Vida, my bro in law asked me about it after a Simpson's episode he watched and I played it for him, Man, I forgot how I thought those solos where so awesome when I was younger( I know there are better ones, but as one of the first ones I heard as a kid listening to my dads records, I thought they were kick-A$$!)

            Wasn't a huge Pumpkins fan but I had a good friend that LOVED them. Every time I hear that song I think of the Breeders, Cannonball for some reason. Same ish era, I was about 18 and invincible when those songs came out.

            Ever heard Frigid Pink's version of House of the Rising Sun?

              Good stuff Bob! You ever dig into the origins of reggae? I didn't know reggae was actually spawned from ska, I thought ska was newer. I love some of the older Jimmy Cliff tunes too, like The Harder They Come. Here's a good one from The Specials...

                No I haven't, thanks for sharing!
                and as a sidebar, he asked me this during our pre-Christmas celebration last weekend, which my wife's uncle then started talking about a 20+ minute version of Bluebird he saw at the Long Beach arena and this bootleg he use to have with the long version on it. We ending up spending the whole night listening and chatting about music and he even introduced me to a band I never heard of before "Juicy Lucy"

                  The Specials.. Another one of the forgotten ones!
                  A Message To You Rudy was a favorite. Very good recording on the soundtrack from Gross Point Blank (a great st imo).

                  Never got "into" ska/reggae so much as enjoyed the heck out of the music.
                  There were a few bars and clubs around here in the 70's and early 80's, lots of great performers came through. Some good times.

                    I love it when that happens. One song that always seems to do that to me is "In Bloom" by Nirvana. It's a really simple song, but there's just something infectious about that melody. The video is fun, too.

                    Isn't it about time we started answering rhetorical questions?

                      Good call and agreed. Another one along those same lines for me is Dragula. Great video; I love the hotrod hearse, I've always loved classic horror films, and it's just an awesome song to dial up REALLY LOUD...

                        1,000 thumbs up for Dragula by Rob Zombie. Hellbilly Deluxe was an awesome album. My favorite from that album was Superbeast.

                        Along that same timeline is this one:
