R&B/Bubblegum vs. Classic Rock
« on: April 18, 2006, 10:26:34 am »

If most of the people on this forum had to choose between the two listed above, my guess is that they would pick classic rock without much hesitation.  I am in the other camp (white boy that grew up in Iowa), and would gladly give up classic rock.  

I think this is almost a psychological profile test, although I am not sure what it proves.

What would you choose?

If I was on a deserted island, and I could only pick one artist to work with, I'd pick Sarah McLachlan.

I don't know how that works out with my choices.. but you'd have to imagine anything would get old, without something else to offset it.

I just get old.

Uhh.. I'd rather do real Motown, than most classic rock.

There are certain Rock bands that I really dig a lot. I wont make a list because that's not the point really.

Having said that, If I were put on an Island and could only record one set of styles, it would be soul Music. That's a huge term that covers a lot of ground but I'm talkin' old school. No Machines, a great band, "large please, like 12 or 14 folks, singers,horns percussion etc.}People who are making music because it's just who they are..

Yes, R&B, SOUL,, MOTOWN,,BLUES,,FUNK,,JAZZ, all the root's based forms of music. This,imntlbho, is why Rock music gets to exists at all so,............

FWIW, I don't understand why you put R&B and Bubblegum together. I guess lately, what passes for R&B is some sort of bad joke but, I put a lot more rock in the Bubblegum category.

my 2 cents.....................

thinking pragmatically, if i was on a desert island, probably, all saints would be the go

i mean, on  a deserst island, who really cares if they can sing?

Well I would take Jessica Simpson   .... Like Max says, who cares if they can sing?

But to answer the question.  I would prefer classic rock, (and a blonde)

What would you choose?



Although I love classic R&B and Soul, I would have to choose Classic Rock:

Beatles, Hendrix, Stones, Cream, Jeff Beck, Pink Floyd, Led Zep, Santana, etc.

and '50s Rock & Roll:

Buddy Holly, Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Carl Perkins, Little Richard, etc.

Classic Country:

Johnny Cash, George Jones, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Waylon, Kristofferson, and of course Ernest Tubb and Bob Wills.

All the Classic Blues and Jass as well.

I think I would prefer Silence over Bubblegum.

Well, I am a sucker for a good pop song Smile . I heard,just last month for the first time in a long time that tune that has the big piano/band riff?--

1  2  3  4 - 1&  2&  3&  4& - 1&  2&  3&  4& - 1  2  3  4
              c#  c#  c# D     Ad  Ad  Ad A

"OH o wo, Oh what a lonely boy,Oh what a lonely Boy, Yad Yada?

Remember? Cool Melody. Silly song, Very popish in a pre Toto kinda way, great band playing. Who was that?

I need to get a life Shocked

P.S. The pitches are supposed to be on the "and" of each beat except for the D and the A which are on 4 but the text bunches together Confused

This font doesn't swing at ALL man.

Scuse Me !?!

Cutting Edge Raw Rock of it's time... Listen to "Rave On".

Still ***NOT*** bubblegum almost 50 years later !

Although he did write & record some beautiful love songs... True Love Ways!

Being origianlly from Lubbock area , I know my Buddy Holly.

Bubblegum = Tommy Roe, 1910 Fruitgum Co., Partridge Family, & that other silly Fluff.

Please Don't Insult the Architects of true Rock & Roll !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
