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

I sometimes forget how sentimental 60s songs are.

The last Windows update is the most awful sh*t ever. It took me over fifteen minutes to finally been able to run Florin's sheet :help:
So you are the one person who runs Florin's shit?

Guys, I'm sick and finding it very hard to put the necessary effort into reviews.

for me most of the songs here are 4 or 5 stars, maybe something would be a 3 at worst, so it's pointless to put review

but i agree Can in the 60s weren't as good as they were later. I sent here once a French cover of a song from this album, imo much more in "Can" style than the original (Ruth "She brings the rain" ofc did shit here, but a great cover)

I don't know if Can were better in the 60s, but I adore their 60s songs. :shrug:

Basically, those songs just had low sound + quality were not the best. I don't want to comment anything about Carole King. Better leave it unsaid.

I definitely enjoyed SF1 a bit better than 2. There were some nice gems here and there, I think the singer-songwriter ones surprised me.

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

Song One – The Supremes - Baby Love
★★
Commercial music sucked back in the 1960s as well, just not as much as it sucks today.

Song Two – The Action – Brain
★★★
Incredible how 90s this sounds. If it weren’t for the cool guitar effects, it would have been extremely dull.

Song Three – The Moody Blues - Eternity Road
★★★★
I’m not against the 60s mystical songs, but this one is a bit on the nose.

Song Four – Paul Revere and The Raiders - Good Thing
★★★★★
Sounds like some of the best of Rolling Stones. That’s a Good Thing.

Song Five – Dmitri Shostakovich - Hamlet Suite, Op. 116
★★
Not my thing.

Song Six – The McCoys - Hang On Sloopy
★★★
Hang on STUPID, Stupid hang on! :haha: Worst misheard lyrics ever. Snoopy, perhaps, but Sloopy? Anyway, the song is… well, stupid.

Song Seven – Wilson Pickett - In The Midnight Hour
★★★
Heavily affected singing doesn’t relate to the banality of the song.

Song Eight – Carole King - It Might as Well Rain Until September
★★★
Poor her. It might as well rain until the 1970s. Her best is yet to come.

Song Nine – Karin Krog - Lazy Afternoon
★★
The only song I had to skip midway on my first listen. I managed to last until the end on subsequent two listens, but ultimately I gained nothing from this. A very unfortunate experiment, ruined not necessarily by the vocals but by the lazy:)oh:) composition that doesn’t go anywhere.

Song Ten – Sandie Shaw - Long Live Love
★★
Never liked her childlike vocals. A cheesy little song.

Ennio Morricone - Metti Una Sera a Cena - Feat. Nora Orlandi
★★★★★
Majestic but refined (sophisticated?), that’s how I’d describe everything by Ennio Morricone. It’s why his music sounds so timeless. Or maybe it's because of the movies.

Song Twelve - Michel Polnareff - Love Me Please Love Me
★★★★★
Legendary coo on the word “fou”. One of the rare songs that pull off both English and French successfully. He was a strange guy, but the weirdos make history, right?

Song Thirteen – LOS BRAVOS – Sympathy
★★★
Very standard fare for the 1960s, although it’s nice to be able to hear they weren’t native speakers. Always appreciate good vocals.

Song Fourteen – Can - Mary, Mary So Contrary
★★★★★
I can’t not love a Can song. The decade doesn’t matter, the signature drumming of Liebezeit is always there. The same way one can recognize a Van Gogh painting simply by seeing a stroke of the paintbrush. Of course, Mary Mary So Contrary is so much more: the sinister, jarring electric guitar accompanied by anguished singing/crying of nursery rhyme lyrics – everything I ever wanted to hear. This review took me more time to write than all others combined, and I’m still not done, impossible to do the track justice.

Song Fifteen – Katty Line - Ne Fais Pas La Tête
★★★★★
I was instantly hooked by the heavy freakbeat. Most danceable song of the bunch, spiced up by the strong brass section and triumphant horns.

I noticed that as well. I like when songs' release dates are well-disguised.

Song Sixteen – Jackie DeShannon - Needles and Pins
★★★★★
I hear something new here with every further listen. Really didn’t expect to enjoy it as much, because it is a bit old-fashioned, being from 1963. Everything here revolves around DeShannon's exceptional vocal delivery.

Song Seventeen – Daniel Lencina - Negro en Sol Menor
★★★★
Latin-jazz? Always listenable and sets the mood.

Song Eighteen - Bobbie Gentry - Okolona River Buttom Band
★★★★★
Love the old stories from the deep American swamp. Bobbie Gentry is probably among the best storytellers from the 1960s, together with Dylan and Baez. But her songs are cheekier and much more pleasant to listen to. Didn’t want to write low-brow, because I don’t mean that in a bad way. Just different, more down to earth, sexy.

Song Nineteen - The Rivingtons - Papa Oom Mow Mow
★★★
Do they do children parties?

Song Twenty – Breakout - Poszłabym za tobą
★★★★★
Love the songs with sharp breaks midway, the flute solo contrasts perfectly with the heavy dissonant freakout in the intro and outro. God bless Poland!

Song Twenty-One – Chicago - Questions 67 & 68
★★★★
Imaginative showy composition, impressive instrumentation. In part reminds me of a more try-hard version of Love.

Song Twenty-Two – Keith West - Sam ("A Teenage Opera")
★★★★
The most “out there” track here. It’s disjointed and in parts redundant. I’m still not sure what it’s all about.

Song Twenty-Three – Les Surfs - Scandale dans la famille
★★★★
Tropical pop psychedelia? This is now the third song suitable for children’s parties in this SF. I only decided to upgrade it to 4 stars after 5th listen. There’s something hypnotically addictive here. Love the Freudian title.

Song Twenty-Four - Pink Floyd - See Emily Play
★★★★★
Can’t believe Emily wasn’t nominated before? :eek: One of the best Pink Floyd songs for sure. I never really bothered to think about what it all means though. Shrug. Is it about paedos?

Song Twenty-Five – The Velvet Underground - Sunday Morning
★★★★
Nobody is denying the great influence of VU on the music that came after them. But like with so many trendsetters, they sparked the creation of so many tremendous bands with so many great songs which ultimately overshadowed the actual VU output. I like Sunday Morning a lot, but I don’t *love* it.

Song Twenty-Six – The Outsiders - Sun's Going Down
★★★★★
Manically sung explosive rock track about the sun going down is peak 1960s.

Song Twenty-Seven - The Clique – Superman
★★★★★
Amazing how this made me think of the Tongan devotional music - spiritual choirs can be very psychedelic. Anyway, The Clique were a “sunshine pop” band from Texas. REM covered this song, which confirms the greatness of both bands.

Song Twenty-Eight - Os Brazões - Tão longe de Mim
★★★★
Similar to Los Bravos in SF1, another very standard sounding 60s song from a "Latin" country. Although this one has a richer palette and an instantly likable (but forgettable) little melody.

Song Twenty-Nine – Jim Sullivan - U.F.O
★★★★★
This could be the coolest song about Jesus Christ ever. If only it weren’t about the actual alien abduction, right? Right? The aliens better like the 1960s.

SB, you weren't lying about liking the 60s lol.

I think the kiddie parties songs ruined it for me.
