Re: Number19's Song History

275: Film Noir

song: Crime Scene Part One
artist: The Afghan Whigs
album: Black Love
year: 1996



When The Afghan Whigs signed their major label deal, frontman Greg Dulli had a clause written in that he could make a movie ŕ la Prince. Things happened so that movie never came to fruition. But Dulli has always had a cinematic view for his music and The Whigs 1996 album Black Love is an aural film. The genre of film it fits into is certainly film noir. I had no choice but to take a song off that album. I chose track one. For me this beginning is better than most movies for setting the scene. And to bring another medium in, when the lyrics come in, they are better than the beginnings of most novels.

Film noir requires three things: a city, darkside of human nature, and the femme fatale.

The City: the sound of the train entering the station followed by the Dulli's sauntering guitar "bathe my path in shining light/set the dials to thrill me"

Darkside of human nature: Dulli's career is resides here. "Every secret has it's price/this one's set to kill"

femme fatale: as this is the lead track on the album it is not obvious in this song, but the lyric "a lie, the truth/which one should I use?" are used again on track 4 of Black Love. That song starts with the lyric "My lust it ties me up in chains/my skin catches fire at the mention of you name." The femme fatale has very much been established. Track one knows she will be there and tellingly the "should" in the opening scene has changed to "shall" for track 4.

Greg Dulli has always been a polarizing figure, so tying for most first place votes yet finishing outside the top 10 wasn't a surprise.

Re: Number19's Song History

276: Dance

song: Push Upstairs
artist: Underworld
album: Beaucoup Fish
year: 1999



I don't dance.

But T. Rex and some latin jazz makes me want to. T. Rex's Bang a Gong had already been used and I couldn't think of any latin music easily. But I really like Underworld. Easily my favourite elctronic/dance group.

278: I Am A Camera

Quote:

Re: Number19's Song History

279: In Harmony

song: Sorry Wrong Number
artist: Doughboys
album: Happy Accidents
year: 1990



Songs with harmonies has always been something I've liked. I even have a pet peeve with bands where the singer just records the harmonies with themself, seriously, nobody else in the band has passable vocals? Doughboys are a band that for me blasted through the shoulder slumping grunge era of the early nineties, and their harmonies were a big draw for me. At the time a friend of mine (a Nirvana and Green Day fan) said he'd "like them better if they didn't sing so much." So, considering every one of their songs over 5 albums and an ep has harmonies, it was a chore deciding which one to use. I eliminated anything from their last album in 1996 due to the lead guitarist leaving the band late in the recordings and the band getting rid of his vocal parts. So, when there is a third vocal it's one of the other two doing it. Like I said a pet peeve. I chose this one because there is harmonies on almost every word sung.

Re: Number19's Song History

280: Solum Metallum

song: Nanoman
band: Voďvod
album: Negatron
year: 1995



Metal is generally a genre I don't like. Tool, Deftones sure. Slayer, Metallica not really. Well, I do like "Hero of the Day" by Metallica. But for some reason I do like Voďvod, even their heavier stuff.

Re: Number19's Song History

281: Summer Road Trip

song: Autodidact
artist: Swervedriver
album: I Wasn't Born To Lose You
year: 2015



First thought when I saw what the theme for the game would be, this is what popped into my head (maybe a Pavlov's dog thing.) There are quite a few Swervedriver songs I could have used but stuck with this one.

Disappointed with the final placing. Thought it'd be middle of the pack, and with a 6th place semi-final placing it looked like that would happen...

Re: Number19's Song History

283: Open

song: Dreaming
artist: Blondie
album: Eat To The Beat
year: 1979



Always been a fan of Blondie. Have been listening to this song more recently, and liking Clem Burke's drumming. (I also, tried to vulture the game with a popular artist. )

Another drop from a semi-final 1st place. And got held off the podium by two songs from the same boring band, called Kino. Duran Duran and Stereolab took the top 2 places.

Re: Number19's Song History

284: Balletomane

song: Cruel Mistress
artist: Clint Mansell
album: Black Swan Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
year: 2011



Songs for ballet?
My first choice was "Runaway" by Kanye - but it had already been used previously. Then I thought "Helena" by My Chemical Romance. I watched the video and the girl was wearing ballet shoes but even my neophyte eyes could see she might not actually be a ballet dancer. Did some research and yep, she was a burlesque dancer. Could have said "fuck it," and used it anyhow, but I continued searching. I seem to recall Def Leppard's "Hysteria" video had some ballet, but no it's ballroom dancing. I really liked the movie Black Swan with Natalie Portman (and not just because of her wet dream with Mila "was I good?" Kunis,) and figured I probably could find something I liked on the soundtrack.
Even though he was the one who picked the category, I wasn't even considering Sam L's Portman fandom.

song: Oyster Sauce
artist: Hard-Ons

Re: Number19's Song History

286: Funeral & Mourning

song: Good Day
artist: Paul Westerberg
album: Eventually
year: 1996



In 1978, 18 year old Bob Stinson after getting released from a group home for troubled youth with the intent of forming a band to fix his life. He saw his 12 year old half-brother Tommy Stinson going down a similar path, so with pop and chocolate bars coerced Tommy to play the bass. Chris Mars joined on drums. The band went through singers, one such dismissed singer was Paul Westerberg, who Bob thought his songs were too punk. But Paul would not be dissuaded and got back in. A power struggle would result between the founder and the songwriter of this band: The Replacements.

By 1985 and the band's major label debut, Tim, Bob's drug issues were beginning to become too much of a problem. After their drunken Saturday Night Live performance in early 1986 and Bob's subsequent trashing of his hotel room, he was fired from the band he founded.

February 18, 1995 Bob Stinson was found dead of a suspected heroin overdose, but the coroner's report would say organ failure. At the age of 35, Bob Stinson died of natural causes.

Paul wrote "Good Day" for Bob.
