Title: My Favorite THREE songs
Post by: LaneOnBass on November 02, 2009, 11:12:02 AM
This actually came up a long time ago somewhere in here I think. If not here, it was on another bass-centric forum. Anyhoo... here are my favorite three songs, in order:

1. The one I'm playing
2. The one I just played.
3. The one I'm going to play next.

That's a list that will never change, no matter the circumstances.

That's a hard one.
I have taste from Classical to Hard Core.
Frank Zappa and System of the Down would rate high on my list maybe some Audio Slave.

Title: My Favorite THREE songs
Post by: JTE on November 03, 2009, 10:08:05 AM
Caveat-  I'm very very adamant that the "song" is NOT synonomous with "recording", "arrangement", etc.   None of this "my favorite song is Joe Blow's version of..."   That's just wrong!!  If the song can't stand up to multiple interpretations and requires a specific arrangement and vocal performance to be good, then the SONG isn't that strong in my opinion.  And of course the list is subject to change at any minute, but right now I'd say...

1.  "After All This Time" by Rodney Crowell.   Anguish and longing wrapped up around a wonderful melody, full of wisfullness, atonement, and regret while still looking ahead.  Includes the line that's applicable to every real relationship- "There were ways I should have thrilled you, and there were days when I could have killed you."

2.  "Amazing Grace" by John Newton.  A simple but moving melody with lyrics that speak to me direclty.  You see, I AM the wretch in the song.

3.  "All Along The Watchtowe" by Bob Dylan.   I don't know why, but the imagery of Dylan's lyrics, the story that's left untold, and the conversation between the theif and the joker all attract me and my imagination.

JTE...you are dead right about the SONG versus the treatment of it.

I'm still thinking!...........

1. A very interesting band project comes (as usual) from Sweden:
The Diablo Swing Orchestra (Sing Along Songs for the Damned & Delirious, 2009).

2. From the neighbour country Norway (which is in fact a former part of Sweden, that got away under very lucky circumstances...) comes the band Pagan's Mind of which I highly recommend the album "God's equation" (2007)

3. Several songs from John Mayer (only non-hit songs...)

Cheers,
Martin

I have never heard a bad version of All Along the Watchtower, Hendrix, Dave Mason, Savage Grace and Dave Mathews Band Mathews version at Red Rock is the closest to a bum version.  A current favorite is Mule's remake of the old folk song Railroad Boy and the next thing that comes to mind is Mule (which I wish I could play properly).

Favorite song on bass thats hard but I will take a stab at it
   1. Release Yourself by Graham Central Station - just the energy of the song.
   2. Dr. Funkenstein by Parliament - Just a great Bootsy bass line
   3. Naughty Buddha by The Haggis Horns - cool line but nice bass tone to me sounds like my wt400
  These arent the hardest songs on bass just my favorite for now anyway.

Release Yourself is SO cool! Like you said, great energy....and, hey, quite a bass workout! If you think that's easy, you must be a great player! [;)]
