Thread: song reco

  1. #201
    Welp, this has to be revisited as I think I have mentioned this song before on this website.
    Anyways, it goes along with the Movie Reco Theme the last few days.
    Plenty of different versions on YouTube but this one combines David Letterman with Billy Joel.
    Arguably one of Billy Joel's best songs and certainly his most unknown or underrated song that rocks and has clever lyrics.

    No Man's Land 1993

    Talk about an Atheist stealing from the bible and reworking it into his song.
    I like the irony.
    And I certainly enjoy the song.
    He Fucked up the ending/last lyric in this version though.
    Horrible!
    I prefer the version where he just abruptly ends the song with a forceful Here in No Mans Land.
    Which I can't seem to find anymore.
    Must of been my imagination.

    My seven year old grandson introduced me to this disturbing song he and his friends enjoy listening to.

    What, Me Worry?

    They probably play that one a lot at Voodoo Donuts in your neck of the woods. As well as at Comet Ping Pong pizza in DC.

    The Crossing is a pretty darn good album.
    ITV > BBC I suppose?

    Since you are deep into Funk I think you would enjoy most of their work as it certainly has Funk elements.

    Critic Kurt Loder of Rolling Stone gave the album a glowing review, writing:

    Here's a big-noise guitar band from Britain that blows the knobs off all the synth-pop diddlers and fake-funk frauds who are cluttering up the charts these days. Big Country mops up the fops with an air-raid guitar sound that's unlike anything else around, anywhere ... Like the Irish band U2 (with whom they share young, guitar-wise producer Steve Lillywhite), Big Country has no use for synthesizers, and their extraordinary twin-guitar sound should make The Crossing a must-own item for rock die-hards.

    I don't think I have had enough exposure to ITV to make that call Monet, but it sounds reasonable. Thanks for The Crossing reco - I look forward to listening to tracks on that album. It's interesting how there are a number of non-funk bands (or not primarily funk) with heavy funk elements like Shakatak and Daft Punk.
