Brief Non-Sports Post

I hear that this syncs up with this.

But it might just be an urban legend.

i swear that "any colour you like" would fit right into the dragon warrior soundtrack...

...underrated pink floyd song by the way-- top 5 for me.

PaulNoonan said...

Heh. I can see that. Lot's of Dragon Warrior stair-climbing noises in there.

I haven't listened to much Floyd lately, and I'm bad with their song names since they tend to flow together. Off the top of my head, these are my top 5:

1. Learning to fly
2. See Emily Play
3. Time
4. Wish You Were Here
5. Take It Back

This would probably be different if I thought about it longer. I also have a good amount of "bowling alley nostalgia" for newer stuff, and an irrational dislike of The Wall.

the official pink floyd top 5:

1) echoes
2) any colour you like
3) shine on you crazy diamond (all parts)
4) sheep
5) time

for the most part, i like the full band compositions that are more "jammy"...

i don't really like the syd barrett "era". i think it's revisionist history when people pretend that era of pink floyd is any good. i think people just like the idea of a "genius" who went crazy on acid. if he was such a genius, he should've handled his acid better.

agreed that "the wall" is pretty overrated-- they were off the "being a band" concept at that point, which is a shame. nick mason and richard wright are really the standout musicians in the band, and cutting them out of the songwriting process was a mistake, in my opinion.

I like poppier stuff, which is probably why I like See Emily Play. I don't think I ever heard it until I got a greatest hits album. I think it's pretty conventional power-pop, but pretty solid conventional power pop.

I would also add that I think The Division Bell is highly underrated, and that "On The Turning Away" is terrible.

And "Have a Cigar" is great too. Really all of Wish You Were Here is pretty stellar.

ahren said...

i always thought that "on the turning away" sucked too, but then this musician friend of mine picked it up in his repertoire and i really like his version.

there really is a good song hidden in there somewhere.

a slight aside-- never see australian pink floyd. they stink.

Dry penis sizegenetics Dry and flaking sizegenetics among the penis can often lead to soreness if left untreated. Dry sizegenetics can occur for the result of friction from sex or from sensitivity to certain cleansers and the sizegenetics that are often found in condoms. Treating the sizegenetics utilizing a moisture-rich formula (shea butter is often recommended by dermatologists for sensitive penis sizegenetics) can help to keep the sizegenetics smooth and supple and just retain its natural hydration.Penis rash Penis rash, which may result from dry sizegenetics, sensitivity to chemicals like for example soaps or sizegenetics, or fungal infections, may cause soreness, itching and discomfort.
