Since we have an all-new board for non-hoops topics (thank you, site admins! :-*), I figure it's OK to start a thread just for discussions about music. :)

Here are the CDs I've been thinking about buying:

Chris Daughtry's CD The Smithereens' Beatles tribute album The Dreamgirls soundtrack The Sweet Escape (or whatever it's called?) by Gwen Stefani

I'm really not sure about the Gwen Stefani album because, even though I like her, I don't really like the carrier single. Better try to listen to it some more before buying.

However, I am definitely going to buy the new Beastie Boys album when it comes out (reportedly next month). I hear they're going back to their older sound from the late '80s/early '90s, which sounds pretty darn good to me! :)

Wala na kong binibiling CD's ngayon puro mp3's na lang (puro downloads in short). Sulit ang pag search sa multiply since dun ko nakuha yung mga medyo mid-90's alternative rock music na hinanap ko. Examples are Teeth, The Youth, The Breed, Backdraft, Razorback, Datu's Tribe and many others.

Wala lang akong makita sa multiply na may mp3's ni Randy Santiago. Puro babaero lang yung mp3's niya dun. Baka naman matulungan nyo kong makakuha ng links. Thanks in advance.

Ako naman, puro Jeff Buckley ang dinadownload ngayon, lalo na 'yung "Grace" album. You gotta love the guy. Ganda ng mga cover niya.

Speaking of hard-to-find MP3s, nakahanap ako ng "Bolero Medley" ni Celeste Legaspi on a hip-hop website. If you're wondering how it got there, may ginamit na sample from that song sa "Kick, Push" ni Lupe Fiasco (kasama rin sa Live 07 soundtrack ito -- one of my favorite game OST's, pero ibang topic na 'yun. Hehe). Lupe Fiasco's producer, Soundtrakk, is half-Pinoy.

Kapag foreign, wala akong paki sa download. Ilagay lang lahat sa torrent queue. :)

bigfreeze, marami kasing babaero sa mundo kaya nakakarelate sila sa kantang yan ;D pero kung inaalat ka sa paghanap ng mga mp3 nya, bumili ka na lang ng mga vicor reissues ni randy. available yan sa mga record stores ngayon.

for me, the most satisfying rock CD i purchased in the last year is still the allman brothers' "live at fillmore east" double album. there are no words to describe the track "in memory of elizabeth reed" except transcendent. no wonder duane allman was named the second greatest rock guitarist ever, behind jimi hendrix, in a poll conducted by rolling stone and mojo magazine.

for jazz, my all-time favorite is miles davis's "kind of blue." i bought my frst copy over 10 years ago; unfortunately nawala sa hiraman. i thought the only way i can get another copy was through the internet; buti na lang nakabili ako uli in 2004. now it's in my ipod, kaya kahit iwala ng mga pamangkin ko yung kopya ko ngayon, ok lang hehehe!

medyo hati pa rin ako when it comes to jeff buckley. i find "grace" a little inconsistent, but i can't place my finger on that missing quality that would have made the album fuller and complete. yes he had one of the more amazing pipes in rock history, but as a vocal trailblazer, sorry, nauna na sa kanya si robert plant at freddie mercury. great songs there, but my all-time favorite jeff buckley original isn't found in "grace." what gives the album its poignancy, though, is that it was buckley's first and last full-fledged studio album. the song "everybody here wants you," for me the defining jeff buckley song, is in his album of demo recordings and outtakes.

my guilty pleasure is christopher cross's debut album. to this day, i love listening to the album over and over. i'm autistic in that respect ;D

Jonar, ok din yung "Sketches" ni Buckley. The songs are a tad bit darker, a bit less melodious than Grace, but richer, much more poetic.

Have you heard of the theory that he's still alive somewhere? They never really found his body after he drowned. He was once upon a time quoted as saying that he missed "the anonimity of playing in cafes and bars". So from here, some have thought that he staged his death to escape fame.

Bennie, I dont think Grace was formed to be a landmark album, or that Buckley wanted to be considered as a "vocal trailblazer". I think when Grace was put out, he just put together a bunch of his good stuff, and shared it to the public. For me the thing that makes him stand out is how well he blends the software with the hardware, how his voice, his musical prowess blends together so well with his songs, lyrics, melodies. with that potent blend, he strikes a cord that for me, very few singer-songwriters could strike. Jeff Buckley seeps into your soul, and lingers there. Admitedly, it's an acquired taste, but one that's hard to shake off.

Ah, oo. Actually, 'yung "Everybody Here Wants You" ang una kong narinig na kanta niya. Pinapatugtog pa sa NU 107 noong college ako. Perfect make-out song 'yun. Must be the lyrics, or the steady, suggestive bass, or the caterwauling guitar. Ranks up there with "Careless Whisper" and "The One You Love".* ;D

Medyo nagsa-subscribe din ako sa theory na staged lang ang pagkakalunod niya. Sino ba kasi sa tamang pag-iisip (well, oo, manic-depressive si Jeff) ang magsusuot ng boots habang lumalangoy, di ba?

Re: "Grace", trailblazing iyon in the sense na kakaiba ang covers doon ("Lilac Wine" and "Corpus Christi Carol" immediately come to mind). Medyo shaky ang songwriting niya doon, pero kumabaga sa laro, tremendous upside ang ipinakita niya.

BigBlue
05-15-2007, 11:29 AM
Actually, i never really grew to like "everybody here wants you". For me his best song is still "last goodbye", his trademark performance is found in "lilac wine" (actually, the song pretty much describes his style), and his one of his last best works, a magnificent combination of songwriting-singing is in "morning theft".

True, I also think that "grace" was trailblazing, but i dont think Buckley had that in mind when he came out with that. sayang lang talaga that he died too early. it would have been interesting to see how far his songwriting would go.

Bennie Bangag
05-15-2007, 11:43 AM
i agree that "grace" was supposed to be a portent of good things to come. nakapanghihinayang isipin kung ano yung creative output nya kung buhay pa sya ngayon. then again, he was fated to die young because of his inner demons. still, what if he lived long enough to come out with at least another two albums, despite the "jeff is alive" speculations?

Dangit, wala akong nakukuha from Multiply. The one and only time I tried, I wound up with a file that wasn't in MP3 format. Maka-try again nga :P

Bennie, my parents listened to Christopher Cross when I was little and they said I insisted on listening to the tape (whichever album that was) every day on my way to and from kindergarten. I knew the lyrics and the order of the song by heart...but now I can't remember a single song ;D

"Hark, listen to the sound
Follow you all around
Rest your ears
Close to the ground"
--The Way Life Ought To Be


Anyone here remembers Lokal Brown, the 80s "superband" made up of Chikoy Pura, Ed Formoso, members of Asin, a pre-Tropical Depression Dominic "Papadom" Gamboa, and others.


"Sobra gid ang trabaho ko
Jutay ang sweldo"
--Ay Pedro


Can't remember if Binky Lampano and Jun Lupito were part of Lokal Brown.


"This is not Amerika
This is not the USA
This is one of the places
They try to make it feel that way"
--This Is Not Amerika


"This Is Not Amerika" included a mala-Janis Joplin na banat ni Lolita Carbon, singing a few lines from Asin's "Masdan Mo Ang Kapaligiran."


"Makulit nagpupumilit
Bumili ka na ng tiket
Sa Amerika mag-piknik
Huwag ka nang babalik"
--Reklamo Ng Reklamo


Lokal Brown was a studio-only group. And some of their songs (like "Reklamo Ng Reklamo" were covers. Sino meron/saan ako makakakuha ng album nilang "This Is Lokal Brown"? A burned CD would be better even. Had a tape in college pero may pumitik.

Other songs on my hard-to-find MP3 (Music Piracy Fthree) wish list:

"Lokal Boy" by Ethnic Faces
Love Jack Sicat's monotonous yet enchanting drone. Ka-batch sya ng kuya ko sa San Beda High School.

The Papadom song by Tropical Depression
Don't know the title and it isn't in any of their albums. Basta, pag kinakanta nila sa Peyups, nagco-Conga Line lahat, kahit mga punks.

"Kwentong Looban" by Binky Lampano
A visceral anthem to life in the squatter areas.

"at fillmore east" for me is one the greatest live albums ever! ang layo ng elizabeth redd version from the sudio album talagang tataas ang balahibo mo ha ha! come to think of it, lahat ng live releases ng fillmore are classics...i even have "rockin the fillmore" by humble pie with a teenaged peter frampton playing alongside steve marriot on guitars..kakaliabot! oh well, those were the days..

Here's a random question...what are your favorite remakes or cover versions? They say that nothing beats the original, but that doesn't mean we can't appreciate an artist's homage to his/her own favorites. :)

For my part, I really love the Beatles' cover versions from the early '60s like "Some Other Guy"* (from the Live at the BBC double album - I can't remember who the original artist was), the Isley Brothers' "Twist and Shout", Chuck Berry's "Roll Over Beethoven" and "Rock and Roll Music" and Smokey Robinson and the Miracles' "You Really Got A Hold On Me." I also love 311's fun remake of Sublime's "What I Got" and their pretty faithful cover of The Clash's "White Man in Hammersmith Palais" (performed live on the 311 Day DVD).

How about you?

Jef Buckley -- Elton John's "We All Fall In Love Sometimes" (live bootleg) and Nina Simone's "Lilac Wine" (pero di yata si Nina Simone ang original...)
311 -- The Cure's "Love Song"
Radiohead -- Carly Simon's "Nobody Does It Better" (live bootleg)
Elliott Smith -- The Beatles' "Because" (from the American Beauty OST)
Nirvana -- David Bowie's "The Man Who Sold The World"
Reel Big Fish -- A-Ha's "Take On Me"

Madami pang nasa playlist ko. I have a soft spot for covers of British songs, kung di ninyo napansin. I like all of them equally, pero nangingibabaw si Elliott Smith at Jeff Buckley. These are the songs that readily came into my head when I read 5FootCarrot's post. :)

Covers on the local scene:
• "Ati Cu Pung Singsing" by Tropical Depression

• Tropical Depression's cover of Juan Dela Cruz Band's "Ang Himig Natin" (featuring Pepe Smith)

• Regine Velasquez' cover of a Mr. C classic – "Tuwing Umuulan"

• Michael Cruz' cover of Juan Dela Cruz Band's "Beep Beep"

• P.O.T.'s mas nakakaindak na version of Garry Valenciano's "Yugyugan Na"

• The Philippine stage version of RENT. Not really a cover, but a lot of those who saw both the original Broadway version and the Philippine one say the the Pinoy cast were better singers. And these include foreign folks and some of the American producers themselves.



Elsewhere:
• Pearl Jam's rendition of Neil Young's "Keep On Rockin' In The Free World" Cover na, collaboration pa!

• Michael Bublé's remakes of:
a) Frank Sinatra's "The Summer Wind"
b) Bobby Darin's "Beyond The Sea"
c) Satchmo's "Mack The Knife"

• The Black Crowes cover of The Rolling Stone's "Sympathy For The Devil"

• Enya's "Greensleeves"

• The Commitments soundtrack album, particularly its take on "Mustang Sally" and "The Dark End Of The Street," proved that not only African-Americans have soul.

• Nobody but nobody beats Tony Bennet's "The Way You Look Tonight." Not Bublé, not Harry Connick, Jr.

• Nor for that matter can anyone say "I want to bone you real bad" quite like Tom Jones. "It's Not Unusual" Rules!

• Pat Boone's revamp of GNR's "Sweet Child Of Mine"

Don't know if anyone brought this up in here but my question is "If you were to own or buy an album twice, what would it be?"

To start off, I'd have to say Rage Against the Machine's self titled debut album. This album would make any other rock band today look like britney spears. The musicality and the lyrics from Bombtrack to Freedom is unequalled, probably one of the best rock albums ever made, you just can't get enough of it. Personally, I believe at one point in the 90's they were far better than u2.

most cassette tapes will eventually squeak because the tapes themselves become brittle with age. when they become brittle, the chrome oxides wear off and crumble, which exposes the underlying fiber of the tape. one of the important tasks of music archivists and recording engineers is to periodically check on the condition of the master tapes in their care, and lubricate them with a special tape oil if needed. for cassette tapes, they apply a much lesser amount of oil--one tiny drop per spool--upon opening the cassette. once this is accomplished, the cassette is screwed back in place and then repeatedly put on forward and rewind in the player. that's how they try to get rid of those squeaks.

i saw some at a certain record store. have you listened to the remixed Beatles' album Love? it's so expensive. i am so intrigued by the audio DVD version.

hmmm... i love Sitti, our Bossanova Princess. she brings her personal touch to the songs she sings. Ditti for the Bloomfields (it is a must that you see them perform live) and Julianne.

i would love to have the Eheads first three albums. and the Wuds. (no flag no race no rulers no country). ditto for the grin department.

as for songs: Augustana's Boston; Julianne's Grateful; Snow Patrol's Signal Fire; Cornershop's Brimful of Asha; The Offspring's The Kids aren't Alright; Fallout Boy's This Ain't a Scene, It's an Arms Race (i like the original and the Kanye West remix) and Thanks for the Memories;

Btw, Terno Recordings will have a gig at Sagujio i think on the 30th. Julianne will be at Eastwood on June 15 (if i am correct) and Burn Magazine's Burn Sessions starts on May 26.

The Beatles must have used really cheap tape in the '90s, then, because my Anthology tapes are the squeak-prone ones, not the tapes from the boxed set I bought in 1990. :-\ (I can't remember if those squeak, too.)

I also forgot to mention Paul Gilbert's version of the Spice Girls' "2 Become 1." ;D


Mwa-ha-ha! Why would anyone remake a Spice Girls record?

I left out some albums I can't get enough of. :)

House of Pain's "Same as it ever was"
Maxwell's "Urban Hang Suite"
"Frank Sinatra and Antonio Carlos Jobim"
and my personal favorite "Frank Sinatra sings for only the lonely", soft yet strong, lush arrangements plus excellent vocals and interpretations, the best album ever...para sa akin lang po yun. (Sinatraphile kasi ako eh) ;D Kinda hard to collect all his albums though, sobrang dami eh,I just get the really good ones.

In no particular order:

1.* True Faith's cover of Boy George/Culture Club's "Mistake Number 3"
2.* Re-makes of old Isley Brothers hits:
* * *"I Can't Let Go" by Lee Ritenour
* * *"Harvest for the World" - ang dami nila
* * *"Highways of My Life" - marami din, even Boy Katindig had one.
* * *"Let Me Down Easy" - Ronnie Laws
* * *"At Your Best You Are Love" - Aaliyah
* * *......en meni mor

3.* Re-makes made by the Isley Brothers:
* * *Seals and Crofts's "Summer Breeze"
* * *James Taylor's "Don't Let Me Be Lonely Tonight"
* * *The Doobie Brothers' "Listen to the Music"
* * *Todd Rungren's "Hello It's Me"
* * *Crosby Stills Nash and Young (tama ba?) "Love the One You're With"
* * *.......en meni mor agayn
* * *
4.* The Dave Matthews Band's two re-makes (are there more?)
* * *The gazillion versions, all of which I like, of Bob Dylan's "All Along The Watchtower" (funny how many mistake DMB's watchtower versions as "Stairway to Heaven" remakes).
* * *"Time of the Season".* Can't remember who did the original.

Damn.* Aural trip down memory lane.* Makabili nga ng beer sa kanto....




That was an awesome rendition of "mistake number 3" by True Faith - even better than the Culture Club original.

Another very good remake done by True Faith is their acoustic version of "Say a Little Prayer" and their acoustic remake of "Perfect."

"If you were to own or buy an album twice, what would it be?"
I need all of the Beatles' albums on CD, including Live At the BBC and the Anthology sets. Loser pa ako nung unang lumabas yung mga yun kaya puro cassette ang nasa akin :P and now the tapes tend to squeak whenever I play them! (Bakit ba ganun?)


Oh yes Carrot. The Beatles for me is the Best Band ever!

My best song in the Anthology series is the solo mellow version of George Harrison's "While My Guitar Gently Weeps." I like that better than the one in the White Album.

Best Commercial Jingle: "I'd Like To Teach The World To Sing" from Coke's "Hilltop" TVC spot.

One of the few commercials i still remember seeing as a very young kid. On the TVCs twentieth anniversary, they "remade" it; this time with the children of the original cast running to their parent's arms while singing "It's The Real Thing" as a counterpoint to the original jingle sung by the oldies.

I read that the agency (McCann, i think) spent months and months tracking down the original cast to give the commercial a genuine heart-tugging feel. And boy did it work!

For someone who saw the original spot, it's impossible not to get all choked up and teary-eyed.

Paul of Bataan
05-26-2007, 05:58 AM
i think i have a CD with that song. it's originally by the new seekers, an australian group.

about the commercial, that was the first hippie TV ad by coke, and it perfectly captured the spirit and the anti-war sentiment of the tie-dyed generation reeling from the societal effects of the vietnam draft. probably one of the most memorable commercials of all time.

OMG, this reminds me of my high school days, when MTV still featured stuff from MTV Europe and everybody waited for the deejay to play "100% Pure Love" at the school dances ;D

I have some M People, but it's on tape also :-\ I may have unearthed it at one of those bargain bins at Odyssey (yung tipong P50 lang yung tape kasi hindi siya mabenta). I would also suggest the "pre-owned/imported" sections at Music One. I have a Culture Beat CD ("Mr. Vain") that I may have found there. Happy hunting!

I don't really buy CDs, unless I absolutely like the album and the artist. I usually just mooch stuff off from people's iPods, or rip other people's CDs into iTunes. There's also stuff available on most p2p networks like Limewire, and there are also the torrents. And of course, there's Multiply's search function.

I've been listening to a lot of new music lately, even more than I did in college (and I thought that was impossible).

Let's play a game a friend asked me to play. Make a soundtrack for your life, appropriate for the the following scenes or themes:

1. Opening Credits
2. Waking Up
3. Average Day/Errands/Downtime
4. Party Scene
5. Dancing
6. Seeing her/him for the first time.
7. First date
8. Falling in Love
9. Just before making out, making out
10. Love Scene ;D
11. Post-sex-next-day-is-a-happy-day
12. Fight Scene
13. Breakup
14. Long night alone (emo)
15. Looking for redemption. Partying again.
16. Secret love (the third party, or whoever else, for you players out there)
17. Regretting
18. Getting back together
19. Death Scene
20. Closing Credits

Feel free to add categories, or mix these up.

I'll start:

1. "Fake Tales of San Francisco" - Arctic Monkeys
2. "Love of the Loveless" - The Eels
3. "Sad Boys Dance!!" - The Secret Society
4. "Pachuca Sunrise" - Minus the Bear
5. "Clamour for Glamour" - The Ark
6. "When I Get You Alone" - Robin Thicke
7. "City of Blinding Lights" - U2
8. "Nothing Left to Lose" - Mat Kearney
9. "Breathe Me" - Sia
10. "If I Handle You With Care" - Trembling Blue Stars
11. "1963" - Rachael Yamagata
12. "People of the Sun" - Rage Against The Machine
13. "Coffee and Cigarettes" - Michelle Featherstone
14. "So Sorry" - Feist
15. "7/4 Shoreline" - Broken Social Scene
16. "Damn Girl" - Justin Timberlake
17. "20,000 Seconds" - K's Choice
18."That's All" - Rod Stewart
19. "The World Spins Madly On" - The Weepies
20. "Is You Or Is You Ain't My Baby" - Anita O'Day

Hi Gil. You can check out some record stores at the basement of the Makati Cinema Square. Too bad CD Warehouse already closed. There is also this store called Groove Nation Records which sell rare New Wave albums. It was owned by Toti Dalmacion.* A bit pricey though.

You can join this New Wave forum. Im a member here already. Heres the link.

As for setting the mood naman, "Love Scene" and "All The Things Your Man Won't Do" by Joe, makalaglag yan :)

Flirt by R. Kelly, T.I. & T. Pain pag gusto ko mangulit, Outta My System - Bow Wow yang ang mga nasa iPod ko na i keep on repeating. Signal Fire and Stolen (got 3 versions) ang favorite ko ngayon.

I actually prefer keeping memories of music spots the way they were when I first visited them. For example, I yearn for the old Xaymaca, without the poseurs who mistake Bob Marley for yet another "soul brother" and scantily clad ladies, or Conspiracy with its weekly Writers' Nights. In SaGuijo's case, I remember my first visit there as a semi-official roadie of the now-defunct Monkeyspank. Biro mo, the groupies were throwing Mentos at me at the nearby sari-sari store!

Sadly, Conspi isn't what it used to be. It isn't as jampacked as it used to be on Tuesdays. But they still have the same roster of performers. Ang problema kasi sa place, location. It's somewhat out of the way. Medyo malayo sa mga university, etc., unlike Mag:Net. Mas madalas na ako doon lately.

Wala lang akong makita sa multiply na may mp3's ni Randy Santiago. Puro babaero lang yung mp3's niya dun. Baka naman matulungan nyo kong makakuha ng links. Thanks in advance.

RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE
with special guest
QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE

Alpine Valley Music Theatre - August 24, 2007 East Troy, WI

In Addition to Select Festival Appearances in New York and California, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE to Play One Concert in the Midwest

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Monday June 11th:

CHICAGO, IL -- After immense anticipation following confirmed appearances at Coachella Music Festival in California and Rock The Bells Festival dates in New York and California, Live Nation announced today that RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE will perform a concert at ALPINE VALLEY MUSIC THEATRE in East Troy, Wisconsin on Friday, August 24th. This performance will be the band's only Midwest appearance.

Tickets for the Alpine Valley Music Theatre concert will go on sale on Saturday, June 16th at 10 a.m. Ticket prices are $60.00 for reserved pavilion and general admission lawn seating and will be available at the Alpine Valley Box Office, all Ticketmaster locations, charge by phone at (312) 559-1212 or online at www.livenation.com and www.ticketmaster.com.

After 7 years, original RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE band members Zack de la Rocha, Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, and Brad Wilk reunited on stage at Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California on April 29th, sparking rumors of additional performances. These rumors were soon confirmed, as the band announced additional festival appearances at the Rock The Bells festival dates in New York, San Francisco, and San Bernardino.

The announcement of the Alpine Valley Music Theatre concert today marks the band's sixth appearance of the summer and their only Midwest appearance. It is also the band's only non-festival concert.

...This band is way too good to just walk away. Hope they release a new album. No wonder audioslave disbanded, na-miss siguro ni tom si zack. :D Works for us!

I was supposed to go watch RATM and all the other bands that played in Coachella when I went to the States a few months ago.

Thing was, my friend forgot to buy us tickets on time, so when we looked at scalpers' prices, tickets that were going for $250 (3 day pass) were selling for $1200.

Of course, I was getting e-mail after e-mail about how kick-ass Coachella and RATM were.

Medyo pa-OT muna, ha. Saktong-sakto, e.

Puro high-school stuff ang nangyayari sa akin ngayon. Una, may pa-videoke ang batch namin sa Sabado. Sunod, ikakasal ang bespren ko sa ika-21 ng buwang ito (note to self: maka-book na nga ng flight). Tapos, 'yung ka-partner ko sa Science Research na isinumpa kong sasagasaan ko sa pagkakataong makita ko siya sa vicinity ng Katipunan, in-add ako sa Friendster.

Tapos, magkakabalikan na ang RATM. Baka mamaya, biglang ring mabuo muli ang E-heads. *;D

Makadalaw nga sa alma mater ko minsan.

Back to topic.

Noong tumugtog dito ang RATM, nanood ng concert sa Astrodome ang daddy ng GF ko. Sabi niya, paglabas niya, 'yung mga batang nakikita niyang nagwawala sa loob ng Cuneta, ayun, ayos na ayos habang sinusundo ng mga magulang nilang nag-aabang sa labas. Wala lang. RATM's too good to be wasted on the young.

For those of you who are planning to buy CDs (hello, Carrot!) or download music, try to find

Albums
1. "The Reminder" by Feist - Feist's newest album, where she treats us to her beautiful songs which are all sung in a manner that can make even Dick Cheney weep.

2. "Overtones" by Just Jack (not the guy from Will and Grace) - Trippy, dancy-dancy music by this guy from the UK featuring nice lyrics, nice raps and rhymes.

3. "Ultra Payloaded" by Satellite Party - Kick-ass lyrics, kick-ass music.

4. "State of the Ark" by The Ark - Glam rock. Fantastic music, trippy beats and melodies.

5. "Beneath the Boardwalk" or "Favourite Worst Nightmare" by Arctic Monkeys - Great music by another UK band, which is, interestingly enough, getting some comparisons to the Beatles. They sound worlds apart, but I guess it's because they're British, a foursome, and sport similar hairstyles.

Also, look for "Transparent Things" by Fujiya & Miyagi if you're into electronica.


Songs

- "Message In A Bottle" as covered by Brandon Boyd and Gwen Stefani
- "Careless Whisper" as covered by Ben Folds Five and Rufus Wainright
- "Wouldn't Get Far" by The Game (featuring Kanye West)
- "Make This Go On Forever" by Snow Patrol
- "Throw It All Away" by Zero7.
- "New Shoes" by Paolo Nutini

For those of you who are planning to buy CDs (hello, Carrot!) or download music, try to find

Albums
1. "The Reminder" by Feist - Feist's newest album, where she treats us to her beautiful songs which are all sung in a manner that can make even Dick Cheney weep.

2. "Overtones" by Just Jack (not the guy from Will and Grace) - Trippy, dancy-dancy music by this guy from the UK featuring nice lyrics, nice raps and rhymes.

3. "Ultra Payloaded" by Satellite Party - Kick-ass lyrics, kick-ass music.

4. "State of the Ark" by The Ark - Glam rock. Fantastic music, trippy beats and melodies.

5. "Beneath the Boardwalk" or "Favourite Worst Nightmare" by Arctic Monkeys - Great music by another UK band, which is, interestingly enough, getting some comparisons to the Beatles. They sound worlds apart, but I guess it's because they're British, a foursome, and sport similar hairstyles.

Also, look for "Transparent Things" by Fujiya & Miyagi if you're into electronica.


Songs

- "Message In A Bottle" as covered by Brandon Boyd and Gwen Stefani
- "Careless Whisper" as covered by Ben Folds Five and Rufus Wainright
- "Wouldn't Get Far" by The Game (featuring Kanye West)
- "Make This Go On Forever" by Snow Patrol
- "Throw It All Away" by Zero7.
- "New Shoes" by Paolo Nutini
- "Your Ex-Lover Is Dead" by Stars
- "Nothing Left To Lose" by Mat Kearney
- "Lover You Should've Come Over" by Jeff Buckley


I have Feist's album. Ayos 'yun. I downloaded "Mushaboom" the moment I heard it on a perfume commercial. I also liked her collaboration with Kings Of Convenience on their Riot on an Empty Street album.

As for the "Careless Whisper" cover, pa-spoiler lang: Watch out for the falsetto. Ang galing.* :)

You should also try listening to these other Jeff Buckley tracks, atenean_blooded:

1) "We All Fall In Love Sometimes". Rare live bootleg of an Elton John original.
2) "Forget Her", "Lilac Wine" and "Corpus Christi Carol" from Grace.
3) "Everybody Here Wants You" from Sketches For My Sweetheart The Drunk.

I'm currently listening to Lupe Fiasco's Food and Liquor album, featuring samples from Celeste Legaspi and Burt Bacharach, among others. Also, Ozomatli's latest release, Do Not Mess With The Dragon.

If you like Feist's stuff, you'll like her huge band, Broken Social Scene (the band basically has Feist, Kings of Convenience, and a whole bunch of other singers from Toronto's indie scene ALL IN ONE BAND).

And yes, those Buckley songs are all classics. Long live Jeff Buckley.

i think i have a CD with that song. it's originally by the new seekers, an australian group.

about the commercial, that was the first hippie TV ad by coke, and it perfectly captured the spirit and the anti-war sentiment of the tie-dyed generation reeling from the societal effects of the vietnam draft. probably one of the most memorable commercials of all time.


Found it!

Para sa mga mulat na ng dekada 70s, here's the original Coke "Hilltop" TVC: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8H5263jCGg

And the "20 Years Later" remake: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvwz58OuZi8

This gets me teary-eyed all the time and makes me wonder what special memories i can share with my kids. There was also a news documentary on how Coke and its ad agency tracked down the original talents to remake the spot. The TVC must have won tons of awards.

Songs that sell.

Here are some songs that were in perfect harmony (pun intended) with the TV commercials they were used in:

"Oh Lord, Won't You Buy Me A Mercedes Benz" by Janis Joplin

"It Must Be Love" by Madness
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BLI0o_-EOE

"Made To Last" by Semisonic
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_MiQI-zqJP0

"Mas Que Nada" by Tambo Trio
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbFmK4zZ9Ys

"Mama Loves Mambo" by Perry Como
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANFZWTLzZbk

"Something In The Air" by Thunderclap Newman
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fa51ieQa8ec

Musical Chairs spot from British Airways
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8beJ2wxdv1M

Don't know the tune from the "Musical Chairs" TVC.

Off-topic: The Nike "Airport" spot featured the about-to-be-humbled mighty 1998 Brazil World Cup squad, a team that drew comparisons to their 1970 squad (the hands-down choice as the greatest football team of all-time). Checkout Ronaldinho's unbelievable dribbling in the "Olé" spot.

Wala na kong binibiling CD's ngayon puro mp3's na lang (puro downloads in short). Sulit ang pag search sa multiply since dun ko nakuha yung mga medyo mid-90's alternative rock music na hinanap ko. Examples are Teeth, The Youth, The Breed, Backdraft, Razorback, Datu's Tribe and many others.

Wala lang akong makita sa multiply na may mp3's ni Randy Santiago. Puro babaero lang yung mp3's niya dun. Baka naman matulungan nyo kong makakuha ng links. Thanks in advance.


ayus ah... ;D old-school pinoy rock...

Another cool remake I've been meaning to add here is 311's version of "Reggae Got Soul," originally by Toots & the Maytals IIRC. I like the original version all right, but the 311 version (on the Surf's Up soundtrack) has a happy, bouncy, party feel to it, and it's nice to hear SA Martinez in the lead vocal spotlight for a change :)

Today's EMO scene seems more like the Glam' Metal act of yore. I don't know but they seem to be overdoing the showmanship side.

Afrika Bam also made the soundtrack to that famous nike shox commercial, when it was first introduced to the market. This is the commercial wherein superstars like rasheed, jason williams etc...was freestylin' with the ball, while the sound of whistles, balls screeching and dribbling played in the background. One of the best nike commercials ever made, next to mj's 'tell me that i'm old' ad. :)

that would be 'nickel bag' ... 'a nickel bag of funk' :)

That's just the tip of the iceberg, the whole album is great!
One of the few albums na walang tapon.
It's been more than a decade they came out with that album, pero they still sound as fresh.
If i remember, yung digable planets, si john starks, charles oakley and anthony mason were still teammates sa knicks. :P

Sayang lang, they weren't able to follow up the success of their first album kaya parang naging one hit wonder, medyo political na kasi yung 'blowout comb' album, medyo malalim na and the beat's a bit darker kaya walang bumili ata, pero okay din. :) The best pa rin yung reachin'!

Yep, buhay na buhay pa. Lunes yata, Parokya ang tumutugtog. Minsan, napanood ko ring tumugtog ng 4-song set ang Indio I. May event kasi ang org namin noon sa 70's.

Sa Tiendesitas naman, may dalawang venue: 'Yung plaza sa gitna, malapit sa foodcourt; tsaka isang maliit na acoustic place sa gilid, malapit sa SM Hypermart. Magaling din 'yung showband na tumutugtog sa foodcourt tuwing weekend. May regular silang jammer na sobrang kulit -- kakanta ng "I'll Be There For You" ni Bon Jovi, sabay buwelta ng "Don't Let Me Down" ng Beatles. Lupeeeeet.

Mainstream radio does not necessarily mean pang-masa radio.* 105.1 is a mainstream pop-Jazz station but would not be considered pang-masa by the self-styled Jazz afficionado crowd. The same crowd who try so* hard to to love Jazz, but would not really be able to swallow Coltraine's "anti-jazz" jazz.* :D

I like Sitti Navarro's Mybossanova at # 5. In fact my wife and I* bought one.* She reminds me of Astrud. Sitti is better than Bebel Gilberto in my list. You should hear her take on U2s With or Without You, The Style Council's My Ever Changing Moods, Basia's Time and Tide and Rivermaya's Hinahanap Hanap Kita. Coolest of cool.* 8)* Bossa Nova, just like Reggae and Ska,* is a good musical style to use in* reinterpreting* music by other artists. I think Sitti did a really good job. Otherwise I would have stuck with my old Stan Getz collection.

Anyway, thanks Jonar and John. I was able to catch Chikoy Pura by chance back there at Tiendesitas. While strolling along with our friends, I heard a singer blurting out "Reklamo ng Reklamo!" I remembered what you guys posted here. Kaya ayun, niyaya ko munang makinig kay Chikoy.

As to indie-bands who jumped to the mainstream, in my opinion they are no different to any local pop artist.

Mainstream pop is no different from mainstream rock. They* are enjoyed by the same masa who simply like one genre over the other. Kung sa pabahuan lang ng crowd, mas mababaho ang nanunuod ng free concerts ng mga "emote" na rock bands kesa concerts ni Sharon Cuneta.:D

Kaya nga enjoy mga punk concerts nuon. Ang baho ng crowd! Mga taong grasa! Masang masa! Kaya nga punkista* dahil masa. Kaya nga rock dahil masa.* Ewan ko ba kung bakit ayaw ng ilan ma-identify na masa, e pang masa naman talaga ang rock and roll. :D

As to the list, that's OPM music.* Urbandub is more foreign sounding than Edu Manzano. It just so happen that the list does not reflect some of our personal choices. Who are we to say our musical taste is better than Juan de la Cruz who bought these albums?

The thing is, a lot of local bands continue to worship the musical styles of the West. For many local pinoys, we readily accept posers as good simply because they look and sound foreign. Honestly, tunog OPM ba yan? So let' not assume that we are saving pinoy music by supporting foreign sounding pinoy bands who are simply riding the latest EMO bandwagon.


Now, anyone out there has an album of Joe Strummer and The Mescaleros?* Now that's* good music. ;D To those who haven't heard of Joe, here is a link to Joe's rock and roll music for the masses (I'm not talking about Depeche Mode). No hint of snobbish elitism from this great artist.* http://www.hell-cat.com/artists/artist/39/Joe_Strummer_And_The_Mescaleros

Pre, "selling out" has always been the issue against indie acts who become mainstream via major label contract.

How do these bands handle such accusations hurled against them? Is it always the goal to get singed-up or are there indie bands that would rather do it on their own to preserve their integrity?

The trend, I think is not to rely anymore on major label contracts (with the dwindling returns and the declining CD sales across the board) but do more gigs and sell more self-produced CDs or downloadable mp3s. Radiohead started challenging the current business model with their latest release. Kaya ba ito ng pinoy music artists?

for me, selling out wouldn't just constitute signing to a major label...it's more about changing your sound and/or image to be more marketable to the record-buying public...as a struggling musician for the better part of the last 10-12 years, i still wouldn't mind getting signed up to a major label, but never will i allow myself to compromise my band's sound just to make a few bucks...that, to me, is the real essence of selling out. it's not signing to the major per se, but more of changing an important part of the band's sound/image to satisfy the general public.

there are several bands, though...mostly the underground punk/hardcore bands...that stay indie throughout it all to preserve their integrity. case in point - askals and deceased, two mainstays of the pinoy punk scene of the '80s, and still going strong AFAIK as indie bands...after some 20-25 years together! dead ends is another punk band that could've easily gone major (like the wuds and philippine violators did) during the pinoy rock explosion of the '90s, but they chose not to. sayang wala nang dead ends...their bassist jay dimalanta passed away some 10+ years ago...

Yup. That's one way to put it. However, for many "possesive" indie-alternative fan, it's all about prote4cting the idea that the music music will not be bastardized by mainstream media. An underground-mainstream dichotomy.

iba ang sitwasyon ng mga musikerong noypi sa mga foreign artists. for instance, many foreign musical acts can live off their royalties from CD and download sales. on the other hand, local musicians earn mainly through live performances and endorsements; halos di sila kumikita sa album sales.

as far as "selling out" is concerned, the very definition of the term itself lies in the eye of the beholder. for musical artists, the act of selling out connotes abandoning your musical roots because you were told to do so. for fans, however, we have to be aware that many of them are somewhat possessive with the knowledge that they were followers of this band when they were still starting out, etc. there's this element na "sa akin ka lang," so they get disappointed when they move to the mainstream, attract many new fans, and become corporate darlings.

06-30-2008, 12:16 PM
It used to be that after an especially* hard day at the office, I would pour me a double Johnnie black and throw in a couple of ice cubes from the fridge. Then, I would head on to my couch in the living room, switch on an incandescent or two, then slide on Miles Davis' "Kind of Blue" into my CD tray. Nice. After the first few strains of "So What", I am good to go. Nothing sounded better on my AE 100's than that.

It would appear though that THAT routine is going to be in for a little bit of change. You see, I just picked up the deluxe edition of Amy Winehouse' album, "Frank", and I am just utterly, totally blown away. I've shared in the opinion that today's lady vocalists aren't built like Billie Holliday, Sarah Vaughn and Nina Simone anymore. The kind that sings from experience and wraps each lyric iin just the right amount of emotion. No useless histrionics and nods to ubiquitous "belter" stylings. Oh I've heard a few of today's crop, mind you-- and many of them are good. Erykah Badu comes to mind as a contemporary facsimile of Billie. Even our very own Mischka Adams does, with her clever phrasing as she does a cover or two. Unfortunately, to me at least, what these technically proficient ladies seemed to lack was depth. This is where Ms. Winehouse trumps them.

The lady is a gem. She's got all the tools and none of the usual accoutrements. First off, without meaning to sound racist, she isn't black. She is in fact, Jewish(!). Next, she isn't even Jewish-American. She's British. Lastly, word has it that Amy Winehouse is all of 25, AT MOST. So one naturally wonders where that aching comes from, seeing how she really doesn't trace roots to Mother Africa, never lived in the "projects", or been divorced half-a-dozen times. My mini-monitors can't distinguish race however, and to my untrained ear, Ms. Winehouse sounds black as ebony, like she was raised in Harlem, or New Orleans, or Birmingham, Alabama or some such corner of America where the pathos of black peoples' struggle with poverty and its concommitant social problems, resonates. The speakers don't measure time as well, and on some tracks of "Frank", I am just as easily transported to a smoky dive of a saloon in any of the aforementioned places, (check out "Someone To Watch Over Me", "Teach Me Tonight" and "Around Midnight".) Which is not to say she can't do contemporary. That she does with aplomb. Her "F**k Me Pumps", "Take The Box" and "Stronger Than Me" come to mind here. As the remixes on this double disc will show you, she can even do house. Again, i mean no disrespect to Ms. Winehouse, but what on earth did she grow up on, that drove her to sing as soulfully as she does.

Yes, as I've told you, I've been blown away...by a Jewish-English lady who signs like Billie, channels Sarah and grooves like Nina (Simone). I had to add that surname there, if you get my drift. It would, after all, be sacrilegious not to.

salsa caballero
06-30-2008, 04:58 PM
Just learned that this lady has issues, both personal and substance-related. Guess I've been hiding under a rock all this time :D Well, at least I learned where all that raw emotion comes from when she sings. Turns out she was a mere 19 when Frank, the album, was first issued. Dang. What a monumental waste of talent if she doesn't get her head screwed on right, eventually.

The album is oh so super effin awesome, lalo na yung song na Viva La Vida and its lyrics that take subtle potshots of the Roman Catholic Church. Violet Hill is equally impressive, also Strawberry Swing and Yes. Also, the beginning of the intro track is similar with the ending of the last track. You should be able to notice that. Hehe.

The other songs are also great, pero hindi pa ako na-LSS sa mga ibang yon tulad ng 4 songs na yan. If you already haven't listened to it, you probably need to do now, may youtube naman. Or kung gusto mo ilagay sa iPod mo, may torrents. ;D

I got the bass from Gerard de Dios -- I don't remember if he was a regular part of the line-up, but he did play a couple of sessions with them. He's also Atenean, but transferred in the middle of HS.

Cubao, get it back!!!!!* Collector's item yan!* You'd be surprised how much a real-deal sixties-era Jazzmaster costs these days (they go in the $ thousands).* Swap it with a modern day Squier, which are great bang-for-the buck pieces by the way, and you'll still be ahead of the game (so will your nephew be with the new Squier).

buti pinaalala mo. actually, di ko pa naman binigay talaga, kaya ko lang nasabing ganun ay dahil mas madalas lang gamitin ng bata ngayon ;D

it's the real deal. it's of 1972 vintage, and i bought it including its original genuine leather hardcase that looks better with age. it's got block markers, not dots, along the fingerboard. 2 pickups, and i love its warm and mellow tone (kahit patakbuhing amp ang gamit ko).

jonar, unfortunately, i don't get to play as often as i used to. in fact, numinipis na ang mga kalyo ko sa magkabilang fingertips. yan si jaco, malamang sesyonista na yan sa toronto ngayon, he might want to give us pointers--although baka fretless ang gamit nya.

anyway, here is how a fender bass sounds in the hands of the MASTER, the late, great james jamerson of motown. in this track, notice how the bass line is so melodic, it practically serves as a running counterpoint to the lead vocals. you've got to be schooled in the works of johann sebastian bach to come up with such a thing of beauty on bass. heto: http://youtube.com/watch?v=ND-iW51idC0

i would have loved to see a jam session between james jamerson and drummer bernard purdie. malamang hihinto ang mundo ng musika para makapanuod din.

Cubao, are you kidding?* For me this is therapy.* I'd be lucky if I can find the time, skill, cohorts and "K" to play in front of an audience, so more often than not it's trying to play along with CDs in the privacy of the bedroom.* Speaking of Cubao (the place) there was a family (Vitan)* living behind the Nepa Q Mart area that rented out sound equipment and practice space in the 70s/80s.* The stuff they had during my time back home were name brand "segunda mano" stuff sourced from the US bases.* I heard that they've since liquidated their equipment on a piece-meal basis and whoever bought them got them cheap.* Because of E-bay, probably a lot of them may have been re-sold in Europe at double digit multiples vis-a-vis the Vitan selling prices. Deymmmmmm!!!!!

Jamerson and the Funk Brothers are a joy to listen to - very simple yet well executed melodies.* Walang ka kupas-kupas.* Of the original Funk Brothers that backed up the Motown big names tatatlo na lang ata silang nabubuhay, and in typical "buhay musikero" fashion not one of the Funk Brothers raked-in the big bucks unlike the artists they played for.* Kaya ako pa-therapy-therapy na lang* ;D

Chits, I still have to come across an SD album and DVD (legit or bootleg/"kolorum") I didn't like, and have accumulated a sizeable number of their releases.* Saw them last month in NY, the year previous Upstate, and Fagen during the "New York Rock and Soul Review" tour almost fifteen years ago.* Definitely better than sex...almost.

Intelligent Rock at its best!

^ You said it, man. Intelligent Rock indeed. 8)

What got me started with the Dan was Peg, because I was - and still am - partial to jazz and jazz-rock fusions. Later on, I realized that I was already devouring SD albums because their songs are simply so good in whatever genre. From "King of the World", to "the Caves of Altamira", to "Time Out of Mind", and even all the way to "Cousin Dupree" - they're all excellent despite being markedly different songs.

You've seen Fagen and Becker in person? Cooooooooool! 8)

^^ the hippest dudes on earth, walter and donald. i have them all, including the new albums plus their solo incursions with the tragic exception of donald's debut solo, the classic "nightfly."

my favorites from the 1972-80 era were the albums "katy lied" and "aja," although i loved them all. when i finally realized what the song "gaucho" was about, i really had to laugh out loud because that proved once and for all that nothing, and i mean nothing, was off-limits to these timeless hipsters and finger-poppin' daddies. and we haven't even talked about their renowned technical perfection especially in the recording studio. the fact that they were able to draw to their sessions first-call jazz and rock musicians like steve gadd, rick marotta, wayne shorter (his solo on the track "aja" is as majestic as the beijing olympic opening ceremonies), michael mcdonald--the list goes on and on--is proof of how they were highly regarded by the music scene.

I guess you need some gray matter between the ears to write what seem to be harmless lyrics yet have subliminal meanings beyond comprehension by the morality police. With a name like Steely Dan which sent literary buffs giggling in the background, Becker and Fagen sent notice to the music world that their music was gong to be different. To say they were masters of the double entendre would be an understatement. If classes have been organized to analyze to death the writings of Sun Tzu and Nostradamus, it would be great if a progressive-thinking english lit prof could conduct a class on BnF's music as part of creative writing. Well, I guess you can expect this much from a couple of alumni from a liberal arts college like Bard College.

Though Coldplay is many degrees removed from my (o sige, idamay ko na si MangTsits, Kid Cubao and the other old guards here ;D) music generation, I was quite impressed with them when they performed at the Air Canada Centre a few weeks back (libreng ticket - what more can you ask?). Had I come to age at a later time, I would have followed this group with interest. Of course, sitting in the audience with a throng of twenty-something aged members of the opposite sex partially reminds you why you went to live concerts in the first place....

Well worth the cash and effort, if you ask me.

From Mikael Co's blog, about the Eheads reunion:

glass half full: isang bukas na liham sa eraserheads
Monday, September 01, 2008
1.

Pinakamainam sigurong magsimula (palagi, at lalung-lalo na sa pagkakataong ito,) sa isang pasasalamat. Hindi ko inasahang masasaksihan ko pa ito sa buong tanang-buhay ko; hindi ko inasahang 'yung mga kantang pinatutugtog ko kapag sadyang malungkot, o masaya, o nasa mood umalala, 'yung mga kantang di maiwasang kalabitin sa gitara kapag napapasarap ang inuman, kapag nadadalas ang pagtingin sa bintana-- hindi ko inasahang maririnig ko ulit 'yun. Hindi galing sa inyo, mismo, sa entablado. Para du'n, Ely, Raimund, Buddy, Marcus, para du'n-- salamat.

2.

Ang pagkukuwento raw, sabi sa akin ng isang magaling na guro at kuwentista, e isang "manipulation of time." Nangyayari ang kuwento sa paglalaro mo sa sequence ng mga pangyayari. May kronolohikal na pangyayari, pero 'yung skill ng pagkukuwento e nangyayari sa kung paano mo napapasirko ang kronolohiya nito gamit ang mga flashback, ang mga flashforward, atbp.

Hindi ako kuwentista. Hindi ako marunong mag-manipulate ng panahon, di kayang mag-sustain ng naratibo, madali akong madistract sa wika, madaling kumuyom ang puso sa mga pangyayari sa loob ng kuwento. Pero susubukin ko rito. Dahil kayo, sinubok ninyo, di ba, para sa amin.
