Visitor Map
Here are the music artists that both me and *this* website (which, by the way, I am part of the voting body of) AGREE should be in the top 100 music artists list.... BUT I rank each of these at least 25 places better than the other list:

57 15 T. Rex
53 24 Joni Mitchell
48 22 Elvis Costello

Top 25 Favourite Recording Artists

Last time I made a list like this was back in 2010 and it was the top 100.  Three years ago.  Well, things can change in three years...  not TOO much, but a bit.  The artists in the top 25 are all the same but I've changed the order a little, mainly based on how many songs have been added to my favourites list in the past three years (but not ONLY based on that).

So here is the new list:

1 The Beatles (Still at number 1, more highlights are noted below)
2 Bob Dylan
3 The Doors
4 The Beach Boys (up 2 places... tied with the Beatles with 17 songs)
5 John Lennon
6 The Clash (up 3 places, have 8 songs)
7 Leonard Cohen
8 Johnny Cash
9 Ramones (down 4 places... just 5 songs on list, less than others)
10 George Harrison
11 The Kinks (down 3 places, have 6 songs)
12 Donovan
13 Neil Young
14 The Sex Pistols
15 T. Rex
16 Chuck Berry
17 Brian Wilson (up 4 places)
18 Frank Black
19 Nirvana
20 Weezer
21 Run-DMC (down 4 places, still no HoF songs)
22 Elvis Costello
23 Pink Floyd
24 Joni Mitchell
25 Bruce Springsteen

(others have moved only two places or less either way)



Beyond Belief

For my personal Song Hall of Fame, I give you "Beyond Belief" by Elvis Costello & the Attractions.

I really like the breezy cool tune and poetic lyrics of this song... and the fast pace at which they are delivered.

There is a reference, which I like, to seeing Alice through a looking glass in an almost empty gin palace and I also like the rose and thistle reference...

A really nice alternate version of this song is on the Imperial Bedroom cd as a bonus track... but this one is the released version.

"History repeats the old conceits
The glib replies the same defeats
Keep your finger on important issues
With crocodile tears and a pocketful of tissues

I'm just the oily slick
On the windup world of the nervous tick
In a very fashionable hovel

I hang around dying to be tortured
You'll never be alone in the bone orchard
This battle with the bottle is nothing so novel

So in this almost empty gin palace
Through a two-way looking glass
You see your Alice"

---

"My hands were clammy and cunning
She's been suitably stunning
But I know there's not a hope in Hades
All the laddies cat call and wolf whistle
So-called gentlemen and ladies
Dog fight like rose and thistle

I've got a feeling
I'm going to get a lot of grief
Once this seemed so appealing
Now I am beyond belief"

Oliver's Army


For my Song Hall of Fame...  "Oliver's Army" by Elvis Costello

Armed Forces is probably one of my favourite albums...  and Oliver's Army is a great song off of it.  I saw Elvis Costello in an acoustic solo concert at UMass in the '80's...

"Songs You Didn't Know Were Cover Versions"

I see that Spinner UK has a list of 15 songs "you didn't know were cover versions" which I have just looked at via AOL....  OK, let's see, many of them I DID know were cover versions, as I am not a moron.  Here's the list, with my comments in bold purple...


Jeff Buckley'Hallelujah,' Jeff Buckley

Buckley recorded his signature song for 1994's 'Grace,' the only album released during his brief lifetime. Accordingly, he never lived to see dozens of television shows using the song to underscore some sappy moment. The song was originally written and performed by Leonard Cohen 10 years earlier,


I HOPE most people already knew that.  And when I read this first one on the list, I knew to expect a pretty crappy moronic list, but let's see...

but Buckley actually based his rendition on John Cale's version from a tribute album to the legendary Canadian singer-songwriter. 
THAT, I didn't know...  John Cale, huh ?




Click here to see the full list.... there"s 15 all togetherCollapse )





James Taylor'You've Got a Friend,' James Taylor

Taylor reached No. 1 on the US singles charts and Top 5 UK in 1971 with 'You've Got a Friend,' also garnering a Grammy for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance. Carole King wrote the song and released it just months before on her mega-selling 'Tapestry' LP. King didn't begrudge Taylor's Grammy win one bit, as she received one herself for 'Friend,' as author of the Song of the Year.


Ummm, no I guess I though JT wrote this.

Final tally: I knew 8 out of 15.  Oh well.  Harder than first thought.

Green Shirt


For the Song Hall of Fame...  "Green Shirt" by Elvis Costello

I love how Elvis Costello songs, some of them, have such bitterness and bile toward his female subjects.

"You tease and you flirt... and you shine all the buttons on your green shirt.  You can please yourself but somebody's gonna GET IT."

Pump It Up

Another for the Song Hall of Fame... "Pump It Up" by Elvis Costello

Pump It Up... a very catchy song, with an insistant, driving beat... always seemed to me to invite the listener to turn up the volume... and I like to turn up the volume.

Apparently the song is more to do with something other than turning up the volume...

Chuck Berry at UMass

It was exactly 20 years ago that I saw Chuck Berry play an outdoor concert at Umass... 


Chuck Berry       1988     Southwest Fields, UMass  

This was so great.  The best concert I'd been to, as I really considered Chuck Berry 
to be a living legend... he still is...  This free concert was another great one for atmosphere at UMass.  The last one before I graduated.


and here are the other concerts I went to in the 1980's...

Elvis Costello

Today's DRAHOF inductee:  Elvis Costello
 
A lot of Elvis Costello's early music appeals to me, I guess, because of the whole angry young man vibe that he gives out... of somebody wronged by a girl, or wronged by the system, or by life in general.  I like angry music, I guess.  But I also like my share of soft melancholy ballads, and Elvis Costello can supply those as well.  He sings the way I feel... or is it that I feel the way he sings ?  Anyway, he's supplied the world with a lot of intelligent lyrics and music since the 70's, so he's a very WORTHY DRAHoF inductee methinks.

DRAHoF List

As you know...

Each recording artist making it into Darrin's Recording Artist Hall of Fame (DRAHoF) has gone thru a rigorous selection process in which they are chosen as more worthy than at least 16 other candidates in a semi-random way.  Worthiness is a measure not only of sonic excellence but also of how much the artist has been a part of my life over the years, or perhaps has some special significance to me.

Well...

Just for fun, I've made a list of all the recording artists in my own little Darrin's Recording Artist Hall of Fame (DRAHoF), and I've divided them up semi-chronologically into groups with similar styles... which is sort of difficult because many of them have a whole range of styles... but here's what I came up with:
