From Genesis to Revelation
Too obvious for me. There's also "Money Honey" in the title track.
My Little Runaway - In the Cage
Paindrops / Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head - In the Cage
Stooges / Iggy
Steely Dan / Fagen
Throwing It All Away - it
Get Em Out by Friday - it
Domino - it
The Lamia - Ripples
Some others bring to mind Gentle Giant, ELP, Moodies and Procol.
Supper's Ready - The Musical Box
Stagnation - The (ice-cold) Knife
Passion is his masterpiece.
I dig So very much, because it was the first album of PG I knew and, as far as I am concerned, features his best vocal performance ever.
Between III and IV it is Melt - by a hair's breadth!
I also like Scratch and Us, but PG really lost me at the turn of the century. He's in desperate need of a producer who'll give him a kick in the butt, like Daniel Lanois.
My faves have already been named:
Sandy Denny / Fairport
Jacqui McShee (Pentangle), although it helped she alternated with the male singers.
I also quite like the sunny voice of Shakira, but not her music.
Wait, I nearly forgot Nina Hagen, who did two good albums at the very beginning of her career. Ideal with Annette Humpe did one good album as well.
Hooray! Good thing I didn't buy a record player.
I liked your post, but somehow I don't like the fact.
(On the other hand, Nad really impressed me with Icarus Ascending, a track I didn't really care for until I heard the live version a few years ago.)
Weren't there rap/hip hop elements on OVO? I haven't listened to that one for the last nineteen years or so.
That's All has a country & western vibe, Jesus He Knows Me has a reggae-ish bit.
Who sang More Fool Me?
The only reference to chocolate in Genesis lyrics I can think of is in "The Lamia", but I don't see any fingers (not sure that matters).
You've already mentioned the other song!
I'm listening to Who Do We Think We Are by Deep Purple for the first time. I like it and it feels as underrated as its predecessor is overrated.
I had a Cat Stevens (re)discovery phase as well recently. You can't go wrong with his first six Island albums.The last two of those, Foreigner and Buddha, might take some time to sink in, but both are worth it, IMO.
I can't find it. Christian posted it, maybe he can remember where he discovered it.
What about the Paul McCartney quote that was posted to the German forum recently? Don't know where to find it.
There's a track on the Eve album (something with "garden"?), part of which sounds a lot like Icarus Ascending.
(Did I hear someone say "weird mixture"?)
