Ha! My Michelle is literally my favorite Guns n’ Roses song!
We hate each other’s favorite GNRs songs. What a world we live in
I do like Moe’s vocal parts.
The album: Kooper/Bloomfield/Stills' Super Session
The stinker: Kooper's "Man's Temptation"
To add yet another dimension to the discussion that I was not invited in on, I have felt for 35 years that GnR is the most overrated band in the history of rock.
Any song that has the following:
Pick slap noise. (usually from using a very thin pick.)
String popping. (usually from using too heavy a pick or just picking too hard.)
Excessive and noticeable string squeak on acoustic. (usually ruins an otherwise good song.)
These are especially annoying when listening through headphones.
I’ll weigh in on Abbey Road, Her Majesty. Mercifully, it’s a short one.
Strange. The only song on Abbey Road I could do without is "Because" ...
It is m least favorite piece on the album. I think it’s the only song not written to or about a woman.
“Wild Billy’s Circus Story” on “The Wild, The Innocent, and the E Street Shuffle”. Completely out of place. I removed it on my cassettes (I wore at least two out) and now on iTunes. The album is nothing short of spectacular. That song is the exception.
I agree on this and would include “Come Together” although I wouldn’t say I “hate” either.
BTW Abbey Road is a conundrum for me. The first side is good (except for “Something” which is 14 on a scale of 10) and the entire second side might be the best they ever did.
The album in its entirety brings to me waves of nostalgia unmatched by any other Beatles album.
So many different votes for Abbey Road songs. But unless I missed it no-one picked the vacuous Octopuses Garden which I can't stand.
Our House is the stand-out turkey on Deja Vue for me as well.
Wow. I'm not going to say Wild Billy's is my favorite song on an album that has "Rosalita" on it, but also I'm not saying that it isn't.
In fact, for me, Bruce did not have a "That One Song" until The River, with "I Wanna Marry You" ...
Actually, most albums. The more vintage an artist, the older the album, the more they tried to be all over the place, hedging their bets. They had that hit single that spearheaded their album, and the rest of the material was, not totally meh or stinker, but in a totally different vein. I remember prog stalwart Mike Oldfield had a huge chart hit with "Moonlight Shadow" even a female (Maggie O'Riley) singing. A catchy folk/pop tune that people liked. Then they bought the album... and went yuck.
Me was on the reverse. Everything but that one.
Beatles, as mentioned before, was the DONs of having "joker" things or michievoius things on albums. I remember Lennon used to complain on McCartneys perstistence to use songs that is of a very english tradition, so called "Music Hall" tunes, or as Lennon calls it "Pauls granny tunes, that only grandmothers likes" . They came in dime a dozen. "When I'm 64", "Honey Pie", "Obladi-Oblada", "Martha My Dear", "Maxwell Silver Hammer" etc etc. All those Music Hall sing-along songs with quite flimys and silly lyrics. This was the same band that did "Helter Skelter", and "Revolution 9".
But there always were. I remember I just liked Sabbath and Deep Purples live albums, because there they saved the "a-sides" so to speak and avoided all padding, filler material on their records, and just played ther gems. The Sabs where like that. I jumped the needle quite a lot.
Then later on, more and more bands that was "hard rock" or "metal" stayed with that one. Not that many bands went the "Zeppelin" way with calmer folky acoustic songs with super heavy hardrockers.
Can't stand Witchy Woman from the Eagles Desperado album. Hate the sound of the song and IMHO doesn't fit the theme of the album.
Ha ha ha, too funny.
I am a huge ELO fan, but never actually owned the Discovery album back in the day.
(I wore the grooves off of the Face The Music album, and later got addicted to Time.)
I only recently discovered The Diary Of Horace Wimp, and I must say, I really like it.
To the original question, I really loved Rick Derringer's 1978 album If I Weren't So Romantic I'd Shoot You.
But the last track, a Myron Grombacher song, (Monomania) just did nothing for me.
Robyn Hitchcock and the Egyptians - Respect.
The one I don't like is "The Yip Song". Too many yips.
Paul Weller - Heliocentric.
The one I don't like is "Sweet Pea, My Sweet Pea". Too goofy:
Oh yeah, "Sally - Be My Girl" from Outlandos d'Amour by the Police.
A novelty song that just doesn't fit on an otherwise solid album (one I have come to appreciate more and more as I have gotten older)
Always loved the first 15 seconds of this song, but once those 15 seconds are over I feel mild disappointment for the rest of the song. So, I pretty much always listen to the first 15 seconds then skip the song. I hate songs that are an annoying tease. The New Day Rising album has always been a kind of hit and miss album for me.
