Would you like to take ?

The time and rate these songs?

1.Fire And Water: Free: Paul Rogers is hurtin' bad, mama, and he's just gotta get it off his [very hairy] chest.Kossoff makes his guitar cry like a true pro. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tKvllT4I9w0

2.Pulp Fiction: Alex Reece: Simple yet lethally effective, Pulp Fiction's warping bassline and minimalist structure were like nothing before or since, shifting away from chopped breakbeats into two-step patterns. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZNO7-OYLI9U

Youtube thumbnail

3.Mr. Pharmacist:The Fall: Following the punk-rock belief of singing what you know about, Mark E Smith and The Fall carried out years of chemical research, one way and another to prepare them spiritually and mentally for their own manic take on The Other Half's psychedelic garage-rock triumph. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=56dxJjXbnjg

4.Motorbinkin': Dee Dee Ramone: The original lacks the guts of Dee Dee's version, to which Chris Spedding [who wrote the song and took it to the charts back in 1977] chips in guitar skills and studio expertise.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xaBUdpJVnkU

5.Climbing To The Moon: Eels: Heartbreaking centrepiece of E's best record perhaps written from the perspective of his late mentally ill sister. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kcMjOMfnnlE

Youtube thumbnail

6.Three Button Hand Me Down: The Faces: Organ, slide guitar, four-to-the-floor rhythms and a terrific tune [pinched from "Can't Get Next To You"]. The shape of things to come. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WeZ4FMIVqto

Youtube thumbnail

7.Christine's Tune: Flying Burrito Brothers: Gram Parson's wood-warm voice makes the Burrito Brothers' Christine appear lovable, even if the lyrics make her out to be the devil in disguise. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BITiY8M_oDo

Youtube thumbnail

8.Do You Realise?: Flaming Lips: Hypnotic modern psychedelia that makes you wish for a constitution to take all those hallucinogens. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zYOKFjpm9s

Youtube thumbnail

9.Die With Your Boots On: Iron Maiden: This is a real fist-pumping, crowd-pleasing do-or-die anthem with a cracking singalong chorus. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JhBw80Y54gg

Youtube thumbnail

10.Queen Of Eyes: Soft Boys: Chimey whimsy from the master of such stuff, Robyn Hitchcock leads his young neo-psychedelics through a glass, brightly. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I55t3-Q4aLo

  • On this one you went for the lesser known songs. I like that.

    1 - Fire and water - Paul Rogers was much better with Free than he was with Bad Company - (not so commercial) - This is a great song and gets an 8.

    2 - Pulp Fiction - It's OK but I would rate it only average so it gets a 5.

    3 - Mr Pharmacist - A very good song but not great - I give it a 7.

    4 - Motorbikin - Dee Dee wasn't as strong on this one but it's still cool so I give it a 6.

    5 - Climbing - I didn't know this one but I loved it - a solid 9.

    6 - 3 Button Hand Me Down - Any Faces song will get at least a 7 out of me and I love this one so it gets a 9.5.

    7 - Christine's Tune - The Flying Burritoes pretty much invented Country Rock and this song is a masterpiece of the genre. I'm not a big fan of Country Rock but this one still gets a 10 for being one of the best Country Rock songs ever.

    8 - Do You Realize - Karla would be proud of you on this one. LOL - These guys are so cool it is shame to give them anything less than a 6 so this one gets a 6.5.

    9 - Iron Maiden RULES - LOL - what can I say these guys along with Sabbath and Judas Priest brought Metal to the masses. This is one of my favorites of theirs - a solid 8.

    10 - Queen of Eyes - I didn't know this one and I haven't been able to get into it after one listen. After the first listen it gets a 4 but it might grow on me.

    1 - Buddy Holly

    2 - Another Brick In The Wall

    3 - Tommy and Jesus Christ Superstar

    4 - No idea. LOL

    5 - Can't Buy Me Love had the largest advance order in music history (at the time) but I think the longest on the Charts was Yesterday.

    Hi David.

    1.Fire And Water: 8/10.

    Awesome track.

    2.Pulp Fiction: 6/10.

    Pretty cool, even if somewhat monotonous.

    3.Mr. Pharmacist: 6/10.

    It's a catchy track, but the lyrics are a little uninspiring.

    4.Motorbinkin': 6/10.

    Would rate higher, if only the subject was more appealing to me.

    5.Climbing To The Moon: 7.5/10.

    A song with real feeling. Would reaaly hit the spot when in the mood for it.

    7.Christine's Tune: 8/10.

    It's a fun tune, love it.

    8. Do You Realise? 9/10.

    A quality song.

    9.Die With Your Boots On: 6.5/10.

    Pumps along that, but doesn't do much for me besides.

    10.Queen Of Eyes: 7/10.

    Another fun song that one.

    I did have fun, but I suck at your trivia section :(

    Btw, were they your own reviews of those songs? Very interesting.
