Re: The TF Pick The Best Song Game – Game 299 - The Sixties - Revealed 74/75

i really don't have era-specific taste i don't think. but i do find this game a little underwhelming.

btw/ i had originally sent a kinks song, but changed it because somebody nominated another kinks song for game 297.
:sad:

In my view I see no reason there shouldn't be at least one Kinks song featured pretty much every week. :shrug:

Man, what a shit era 60s must have been :hysteric:

But let's be positive. At least this game's better than the Red for filth game :eek:
Sixties were awesome, and this game is pretty damn good. Easily the best since my return to the game.

Additionally, I am sure almost all the musicians you most admire would take my side when making their own assessments on the quality of 1960s music.

You're probably correct but 'A likes B' is not a transitive relation ;) No, seriously, it's not that I deliberately want to hate 60s music. It's just my experience that I do not really like most of the music made in that era.

Yes lots of short songs in the Sixties. :eek:h:


Leavers for SF1:

The Supremes - Baby Love
Carole King - It Might as Well Rain Until September
Can - Mary, Mary So Contrary
Ennio Morricone ft. Nora Orlandi - Metti Sera Una Cena
Katty Line - Ne Fais Pas La Tête

Didn't really hate any of these, but it is a 60s theme after all :shrug:.
What do you mean, are those not really 60s songs?

A 60s theme is going to be good (usually) so it's easy to pick something OK and miss out on votes.
Aaah I see. I agree. :cool:

i sent a different Sandie Shaw song originally, but replaced it with something else :lol: curious how this one will do (though two Sandie songs would cannibalize each other)
nice game
hard to put songs apart with points

well radio songs certainly had restrictions on length (even a 3.5-4 minute song was considered long) and yes it would be more expensive to produce long tracks especially early in the decade, because a lot of the recordings had to be done live with the entire playing band/orchestra and set up enough microphones to capture the sound with little room to polish. The tech did improve gradually. The 60s was a portal to modern music production and recording practices including multi track tapes, loops and dubs.

Summer Lovin' from Grease also used that melody in Hang On Sloopy. :D
yes I can hear that too in the chord progression (which was commonly used for many other 60s songs).

Fun song. Surf rock was pretty darn attractive in the 60s. but what sort of name for a girl is Sloopy? :SNE:

I will be leaving out different songs but, yeah, I totally agree with you, the standard of this game is very high and there will be songs I like that miss out on getting any points as well. And yes, as you say, with a 60s theme this is almost inevitable, such is the high standard of music from that decade.

Yeah, that is one I adore too. I'm a big Katty Line fan and that is quite possibly her best track. She does the almost impossible on this number. She takes a Lee Hazlewood penned Nancy Sinatra song and she actually improves on the original version, and the original version is pretty great as well.

*For the record, no, this in not my selection but obviously it will get substantial points from me.

Karin Krog is bloody seductive with her diction. Stop it!!! :hysteric:

Lazy afternoon is now a new part of my vocabulary. It beats the standard "coffee" if you know what I mean.

That sound you refer to did make a good starting impression, then for me didn't go somewhere quite as I would've liked.
