Are these three songs best
a) at night;
b) during the day;
c) as night falls
d) depends on my mood?
Thanks for your help!
There are many opinions as to how fast In The Air Tonight by Phil Collins is.
These are the times I measured it.
To me, the coolest thing about the entry of the drums with a savage rawness that makes this song one that “will outlive [me],” as Phil Collins referred to himself and how the song has become more famous than *he*is.
The universality of being able to feel as though something is going to happen, especially at night, with an intensity that in the hands of most writers doesn’t translate. That is what music is for, correct? To express messages of any kind in a way humans have done far before their were any etchings on any cave walls.
But let me not drown (he’d throw me a lifevest if I was drowning, Phil would)
That sounds like it could be a bummer, but it is not! If someone told Shakespeare that in 600 years parents would still be naming their children Romeo and Juliet [and all the other turns of the English language that dates back to and were formed by the creation and performance of his dramas], would he even have believed it?
The Rolling Stones are the most famous and most influential rock band over the past 100 years?
Of course they are.
Not many people have come into the public eye to make a judgment on a event that killed a man so beloved that he played a friend to God, played by George Burns, as a supermarket manager. You cannot put a number on the universality of that kind of adoration.
The 10,000 Maniacs recorded this song in New York City as part of the MTV series called “Unplugged.”
