Rock is the type of music you listen to when your head is filled with hatred, grudge and vengeance. Rock doesn’t give a damn about others’ feelings. Initially, the only sub-categories of rock were heavy metal and progressive rock. But now, the number has exponentially increased. From electro rock to death metal to psychedelic rock, rock is the most listened to category of music. Be it DJ included bands like Linkin Park, or Brain popping shrills like Marilyn Manson, Rock is the universal language of music!! ROCK RULES!!

Words cannot describe how beautifully a simple flash animation has captured the raw emotions of Pink Floyd’s epic song – Time. Every effect blends perfectly with the emotion produced by the guitar and the vocals. Also, the surreal colors used in the animation give you some kind of trip. Watch it for an amazing experience!

A big hello to my readers! I know I’ve been for quite a long time, but you should already know the reason. During the long and stressful holiday I took from blogging, I happened to stumble onto a band known as ‘The Ventures’. Now, don’t get me wrong here. I’ve known The Ventures from a very long time. But just recently did I have the pleasure of putting my headphones on and listening to the beautiful cover songs they produced. I shall be putting up my top 5 Ventures cover songs post this Top 5 review.

Aah, guitar solos. Where would we Rock fans be if it weren’t for those soul stirring moments wherein the guitarist makes his instrument cry? While the previous sentence may sound oddly sadistic, it’s very much true. That squealing sound of a guitar, finely tuned to the craft of its master, can send shivers up the listener’s skin. The high pitch notes, which send an electric zap right through your skin, and those low pitches, which match the beats of your heart – a true Rock enthusiast would surely know what I’m saying here. Not only does a guitar solo have the power to make one move to its rhythm, but also possesses the unreal ability to express what the singer can’t. Some artists have signature solo styles, some don’t. The quality of a guitar solo doesn’t depend on the duration, but on the skill exhibited. According to my knowledge, there are 2 unique skills which clearly distinguish guitar artists:

  • Shredding
  • Bending

Shredding is generally used in Heavy Metal, Death Metal, Hard Rock, Alternative Rock, etc. Shredding is basically playing the guitar at an unreal speed. The speed required in this technique is sometimes so much that the fingers aren’t visible in the video. Shredding can be related to a vengeful, hateful or upbeat mood (depends on the mood of the song and the band). Shredding requires a LOT of talent. Bending, on the other hand, is a very unique skill only few maestros possess. It is a slow technique wherein the focus is more on the notes, not the speed. Bending, if performed properly, can bring out emotions nothing else can express. Anyways, back to the showdown!

Number 5: Avenged Sevenfold – So Far Away

So Far Away - Syn

So Far Away – A7X

I am a huge fan of Avenged Sevenfold. They’ve helped me in almost all of my sorrows. Their songs are a bit different than the mainstream Rock bands, but once you start developing that taste for music, you’re hooked. My idol from this band is Synyster Gates. A superb guitar player, who relentlessly shreds his guitar and chokes us with emotions. This song, however, is not about vengeance, nor anger. It’s about sorrow, regret, remorse – This song was made on account of the passing away of the band’s primary drummer – The Rev. The solo is so beautiful, it made me cry like a baby (not just the first time I heard it. I still cry every time it plays).

Solo timing: 02:22 – Rest of song

Number 4: Santana – While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Santana

Santana – While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Let’s face it – There is no one like Santana. His style and technique are completely different than everyone out there today. The confidence this man shows when he holds the guitar is baffling. Santana shares a place is Rock and Roll’s most famous list – The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He has collaborated with countless artists and helped them get recognized. From Maria Maria to this song, every tune composed by Santana haunts the very living out of you. This song was originally written by The Beatles, after whom Eric Clapton made a different version of the same. Santana covered the original, and boy does it make you move. India.Arie’s voice and Santana’s amazing technique are guaranteed to leave you spellbound for the remainder of the day.

Number 3: Eric Clapton – Layla

Eric Clapton

Eric Clapton – Layla

Absolute genius. A master of the guitar, Clapton can make his guitar sing and awaken the dead. His technique – relentless. His style – unmatched. This solo helped me understand what Rock really is about. The very first notes of the solo tell you that the forthcoming is going to be amazing. His skill is not bound within the constraints of an electric guitar – His acoustic versions are to die for too (Tears in Heaven).

Number 2: Dire Straits – Sultans Of Swing (Alchemy Live)

Dire Straits

Dire Straits – Sultans Of Swing (Alchemy Live)

This song – My oh my. I have NEVER seen so much energy output from a song. And that too from a Live version. Mark Knopfler ABSOLUTELY demolishes it with his crazy licks. Terry Williams (the drummer) has probably ripped the coating of the drum skin. It is the SECOND best live performance I’ve ever seen. I know for a fact that if I was present at this concert, I would’ve died from the sheer ecstasy of the energy and the atmosphere. There are two solos in this version – and both are mind boggling. The first one is performed in between the  second last and the last stanza, and the last one kicks off as soon as the last stanza ends. If you survive the intensity of the first solo, you’d better brace yourself for the next one. Because it contains one of the most amazing guitar riffs I’ve ever heard! And yes, you HAVE to see the video for the live version too. It’s one of the many reasons why I’ve grown to love Dire Straits so much.

Number 1: Pink Floyd – Comfortably Numb (Live in Gdansk)

Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd – Comfortably Numb

If God can play the guitar, well then this man is God. I’ve never seen anyone else who handles the guitar as exquisitely as this man does. David Gilmour is the inventor of a technique known as ‘bending’, wherein the guitar  chords are strained to their maximum potential to get every last ounce of sound they can deliver. If executed perfectly, it sounds heavenly. A perfect example of how solos should be played can be taken from this song. Once the solo starts at 04:31, you’ll be void of everything around you. The highs and the lows are perfectly blended together. Seeing a man like David Gilmour performing so brilliantly in his 60’s just goes to show the extent of experience he has under his belt. Add an orchestra backing up this solo, and you’ve got yourself the arguably best guitar solo playable. The song brings out so many emotions simultaneously – peace, happiness, respect and gratitude. The way he effortlessly handles the guitar  seems as if he does it because he has no other thing to do. I was in complete awe when I heard the  solo for the first time. The original Live version’s solo is amazing, but this is GODLIKE. If you’re a fan of Rock music, you CANNOT afford to let this solo go amiss.

Solo timing: 04:31 – End of song

Well, that’s about it. Feel I did some song injustice? Tell me the name of the song in the comments section, and I’ll get to it straightaway. Adios!

Many of you may/may not know about this young prodigy, but I’m going to tell you anyways. Sungha Jung is playing the acoustic guitar since he was 5 years old, and he recorded his very first acoustical cover when he was 8. The first song? ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’ by The Beatles. This kid has got EXCEPTIONAL talent. I just watched, mesmerized by how effortlessly he played the guitar.. He’s made some amazing cover versions, but the most amazing piece (according to me) was his cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s ‘The Boxer’..

Just switch on the video, watch the kid do his magic and sit there slack-jawed. After the first time, hit replay and close your eyes and feel the music flow through you.. It’s absolutely soul stirring! I’m sure Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel would be very proud!

*NOTE* – Sungha Jung performed this song when he was 13, and he’s almost 18 now. I urge you to go check out his Youtube channel: jwc

When was the last time you listened to a song with lyrics so simple, it seemed like a poem; but at the same time amazed you with the effect those simple words had on the song? I’m guessing you’ll have to recollect songs from the past thirty years and then sort your way through them. I came across this song on the morning of Christmas Eve, whilst I was strolling around in a mall, wondering what I should buy for my family. The moment the song was played, my ears commanded my brain to stop analyzing the discounted goods and listen to the song. I stood still, enjoying the warmth generated as the simple lyrics echoed through my ears. Thankfully, I could muster up some common sense and whip out my smartphone, start the ‘Shazam‘ app (thank God for technology), and identify the song. As soon as the result came up, I breathed a sigh of relief and continued with my not-so-successful shopping venture. The simplicity of the song really got to me, and I was so obsessed with the tune of the song that I drove past my house three times. Go ahead, give it a listen.

Dan Fogelberg

Dan Fogelberg

History:Same Old Lang Syne‘ is a song composed by Dan Fogelberg. The song was released to the public in 1980 as a single, only to be re-released as a part of his album titled ‘The Innocent Age‘ (1981). The song peaked at Number 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. It is also one of the most frequently played songs on Christmas Eve (keep your ears open in the mall!). The song, as I suspected, is an autobiographical incident. He was visiting home after a long musical tour, when he happened to run into his old lover in the nearby grocery store. As the song suggests, they awkwardly exchanged pleasantries and decided to spend some time catching up. What follows is accurately described in the song. Jill (Dan’s former girlfriend) heard the song, and pointed out two mistakes he made – Her eyes were green, not blue; and the man she married was a teacher, not an architect. The fact being that she didn’t come forward with these inaccuracies, as it would disrupt Dan’s marriage. For the complete story, click here. There is only one version of this song, viz. the 5 Minute 20 Second Album Version.

What the song conveys: It’s painfully simple, really. The song is written in First person, and it starts with a man stumbling upon his former lover in a grocery store. They exchange awkward formalities, and decide to catch up on all the time lost. They go to have drinks in a nearby bar, but find it’s closed. Hence, they get a six-pack from the liquor store and carry on with the conversation in her car. She tells him that she’s married to an architect and, though she’d love to say it, isn’t really happy. She acknowledges his success as a singer, and proceeds to leave by giving him a kiss and driving away to her normal life.

Review: The song starts with a soothing piano note (Fogelberg), and Fogelberg initiates the vocals at 00:19. As you must have already heard, the lyrics are dreadfully simple, and powerful too. This song stands up proudly among many others and proves that it isn’t necessary to have complex words thrown in a song just to make it listenable; and that sometimes, all it takes is a simple poetic approach. The first verse, which describes their meeting, ends at 00:54. A short piano interlude ensues, after which the second verse follows suit at 01:12. Again, the simplicity of the song is the winning formula. This verse describes the transition of their conversation from the grocery store to her car. The chorus follows right after the second stanza has its share of the spotlight (01:48). The chorus features Fogelberg in a slightly higher pitch and tone. The third stanza, however, brings things back to normal (02:04). This part describes the current happenings in the woman’s life (with a nice little double entendre added in there. Tell me what you thought it was in the comments). As the third verse ends at 02:58, the chorus takes over again, and loops a second time (with slight modifications in the last two lines). The song audibly slows down after the second repetition, with the beats fading off, and extra emphasis added to the piano. The last stanza always seems to catch my attention, as the last four lines (for me) are the best lines of the song. They are:

“Just For a Moment I Was Back In School,

And Felt That Old Familiar Pain;

And As I Turned To Make My Way Back Home,

The Snow Turned Into Rain”

Beautiful, isn’t it? The song gradually fades off, ending with the original ‘Auld Lang Syne’ piano piece. If you’ve really liked the song, I’m sure you won’t hesitate hitting the repeat button again! R.I.P Dan Fogelberg!

This may be the most controversial line on my blog: ‘Nights In White Satin’ is the best song produced by The Moody Blues. Now, I don’t want to start any kind of fight here, but this is my opinion; and music is a field wherein everyone has their own opinion regarding a certain song/artist. I know, I know… You all may be asking, “Why this song? Why not the other masterpieces like Question, Melancholy Man and Tuesday Afternoon?” Well, the answer is quite simple: ‘Nights In White Satin’ was the first (and the best) Moody Blues song I ever heard, and that dates way back to 1996. I still remember vividly – I was just 4 years old, and snoozing comfortably on my mom’s lap. There was apparently a power cut, so we had to resort to the battery powered radio to fulfill our entertainment needs (my family just can’t live without music). The song ‘I’d Love You To Want Me‘ (Lobo) just ended, and the next song which was on air was this. I’ll never forget that haunting melody. Anyways, back to the review!

The Moody Blues (English Band)

The Moody Blues (Band) [Random]: Pinder, Edge, Hayward, Thomas, Lodge

History:Nights In White Satin‘ is a song produced by the English rock band The Moody Blues. The song was included as a part of the album titled ‘Days of Future Passed‘. The song also has a quirky feauture – Majority of the background rhythm is monotonous (it is played in the E minor key and the Neapolitan chord F). The song did amazingly well around the world, grabbing the Number 1 position on several occasions such as the Cash Box (US), Canada, and many other instances. It also just about ended up losing the race with ‘Hey Jude’ (The Beatles), settling for the second position on the Billboard Hot 100. Other honorable mentions include the Number 9 (1972) and Number 14 (1979) on the UK SIngles Charts. For the complete list of Chart performances, click here. Here’s a very mysterious incident that occured with this song – After being demoted to Number 17 on the Hot 100 List (unfortunate, really), the song COMPLETELY vanished. How spooky is that? It did, however, reclaim the Number 9 position (1979 re-release) on the UK charts. Band member Justin Hayward wrote this song after a friend of his gifted him a satin sheet for his birthday. The last part of the song was composed by the London Festival Orchestra. There are three total versions of this song, which are the 7 Minutes 38 Seconds long Album Version, 3 Minutes 6 Seconds Single Edit, and another Single Edit spanning for 4 Minutes 26 Seconds. [Source – Wikipedia]

Review: Okay, I have to be frank with you – Getting a song which fitted the official release timelines was a very hard job. I happened to have a 5 Minute 3 Second song with me, and the Moody Blues CD that I own (Best Of The Moody Blues) has a 4 Minute 56 Second version of the song. However, I did find one that just about suits the timeline.

The reason why I call this song a masterpiece is because the song is composed of nothing but light use of percussion instruments (Ray Thomas & Graeme Edge), a heavy bass guitar (John Lodge) and haunting vocals (Justin Hayward) (and a flute [Ray Tomas] too, but later on). The song starts with a heavy bass outline, and the mild percussion instruments are heard in the backdrop (might have to strain your ears a bit). The vocals (starting from 00:23) are awesome, but the emotion Justin Hayward has put in this song is almost unreal. They seem to be a surge of emotions breaking – Desperation, loneliness, love, frustration, depression, hope, and the list goes on and on. My favorite line of the song?

“Letters Are Written, Never Meaning To Send”.

At around 00:44 (and henceforth), you can hear the alternative board percussions. The chorus is initiated for the first time at 00:59, which is like a roller coaster of vocal and instrumental pitches. To be frank, it really shouldn’t be called a ‘chorus’, because it is repeated two times after a short stanza; but we’ll go with the flow anyways. The flute interlude begins at 02:19 (right after the chorus). Now, I’m not accustomed of hearing flute interludes in a Rock song, but I have to say, this one gave me the chills. It is a touch on the psychedelic side, so if you close your eyes and let the soothing music flow through your ears, you’ll never know when sleep hit you. I have to admit, it’s the best damn flute solo I’ve heard – 53 seconds of pure ecstacy. Hayward commences the vocals at 03:12, with a previously looped stanza. The song spirals down to a trippy rhythm accompanied with “Cause l Love You”. The beats get dramatic, and slowly fades off, until it ends at 05:30. When it does end, I recommend checking your forearm, for if there aren’t any goosebumps, you definitely haven’t indulged yourself in the song. Yet another masterpiece from the amazing band! Hats off to the oldies!

‘Comfortably Numb’ is probably the most potent song when it comes to going into a trance, or enjoying the feeling of being high. Having taken an oath to stay sober until I start earning my own money, I have no idea whatsoever of what this song does to a person who is high, but I have gathered countless accounts from close friends who listen to this song while smoking/drinking. According to them, this song triggers deep, hidden emotional feelings. Some of them have even claimed to cry when the song played. For the sober people, I feel that the effect is nothing different. The soft, mellow tone and the trippy vocals are sure to get all your inner demons exorcised. The loud, but slowly played guitar adds a haunting feeling to it, which guarantees chills. So all in all, ‘Comfortably Numb’ is a song which makes sober people high. Don’t believe me? Close your eyes, concentrate on only the vocals and the music, and see for yourself.

Pink Floyd (Band)

Pink Floyd [L-R]: David Gilmour, Roger Waters, Nick Mason, Richard Wright

History:Comfortably Numb‘ is a song by the (very well renowned) English band, Pink Floyd. This song was first released as a part of their 1979 double album titled ‘The Wall‘. The main task of composing the song was done by Gilmour, while Waters chipped in by giving the song it’s lyrics. The song is said to be Pink Floyd’s best song ever (2nd best for me, with ‘Time’ in the 1st place). It was placed at Number 314 on the Rolling Stones’ 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time list. It was also the last song sung together by Gilmour, Wright and Mason. The song ranked at Number 5 on the BBC Listener Radio’s Desert Island Discs choices. While the ‘Single Edit’ version is very short (3:59), the Album Edit spans relatively longer, lasting for about 6 Minutes and 25 Seconds.

Review: From the very moment the song starts, your head feels light. The melody of the song and the beats are kept at a very slow pace initially, which help to create that trance effect. Gilmour starts the vocals at 00:08. Once they (the vocals) start, you get a gut feeling that you’re going to zone out. Just remember what I said: Keep your eyes closed when you listen to the song for the first time. I guarantee a complete black out. The echo effect coupled with the synthesizer rifts is probably the major contributer in the trance environment.  The chorus, which is (needless to say) amazing,  begins at 00:53. The lyrics are simply indescribable.  Pure language, great composition, and an unbelievable vocabulary! One particular part of the chorus that I’d like to point out:

“When I was a child I had a fever, My hands felt just like two balloons; Now I’ve got that feeling once again…”

It just goes to prove how matured the members of Pink Floyd were. Now, I mean no disrespect, but most of the times, other Rock bands just witnessed their creation purely by chance.

Next comes the second verse at 02:46. If you thought the first stanza was trippy, just wait and listen to this one. According to me, it’s meant to be a double entendre. The chorus begins again at 03:16, with slight modifications. Okay, a bit more than ‘slight’- a lot. After the chorus falls, the guitar solo rises. Now, the junkies might already be too stoned to notice, but sober people will most probably wake up from their trance when this piece begins.

The 3 (almost) 3 minute solo leaves your nerves in tatters, and you are left wondering what hit you. It (the solo) defines brilliance and the very epitome of mastery of the guitar. Gilmour makes the strings glide through all the highs and lows as if it were butter. It takes pauses as if it is waiting for us to catch our breath. I’ll give the link to a live version of this song below, and I dare you- Listen to the last solo without squirming in your chair. If you do so, you’re oficcially inhuman.

‘Comfortably Numb’ is a song from Pink Floyd’s album named ‘The Wall’

An apology to all my fans: I severely ruptured my ACL while playing football, and I had to spend 45 days recuperating. That was followed by two and a half months of exhausting physiotherapy, and I was finally set free of all those monotonous exercise regimes yesterday. Interestingly, I got acquainted with a lot of music lovers, and started liking a band which I previously tried to avoid – Deff Leppard.

Unlike the other 80’s Rock artists, Deff Leppard had their own signature style – Bad boy looks, fancy guitars, loud music and a swagger that oozed confidence – The perfect recipe. Of course, the long hair, the torn (or should I say, shredded) jeans and the outrageous dressing sense all came with the package too.

Deff Leppard’s first song to fall on my ears was ‘Pour Some Sugar On Me’, which remains my personal favorite till date. The pace of the song itself makes you groove to the rhythm. Add a little raunchy bass, a badass guitar, and awesome vocals, and TA DA! Unforgettable song created.

History:Pour Some Sugar On Me‘ was a single by the British Rock band Deff Leppard. It also starred in their 1987 hit album, Hysteria (which is their most selling album). The song itelf sold around 4 million copies worldwode. It seems as if this song has the number ‘2’ written all over it, because it seemed to retain that position all the time. It was placed at Number 2 on the Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. It also stayed on that spot when VH1 released their ‘100 Greatest Songs Of The 80’s‘ list. However, it did clinch the top spot on many occasions. It won the Number 1 spot in the ‘Top 300 Videos Of All Time’, ‘Dial MTV (for 85 consecutive days), and the Top Pop Albums. The AVN (Adult Video News) also rated this song as ‘Number 1 Song Used By The Strippers’ of all time. Now THAT is rare! The different versions of the song alongwith their time spans are:

Album Version – 4:25
Hysteria video edit version – 4:52
2012 re-recorded version – 4:21
Extended version – 5:35                                                                   [Source: Wikipedia]

 

Deff Leppard (Band)

Deff Leppard (Band)

 

Review: The song begins with the unanimous chant: “Step inside, walk this way, you and me babe, Hey Hey”, followed by an engaging and snazzy guitar rift. When the beats merge with the rift, the whole song bursts to life. If you listen to only the musical piece, you can clearly imagine a man with dirty hair, torn jeans and a loud boombox on his right shoulder, walking through the civilized citizens and making their heads turn. The song’s vocals then crank in the first gear at 00:17. The vocals are harsh, which adds another notch of badass to it. The first pre-chorus begins at 00:51, which is immediately followed by the chorus at 01:02. The transition from the verses to the chorus (and back) is surprisingly smooth, unlike other Rock songs of that time. You hardly feel a glitch when it happens. The beat then dies suddenly at 01:20, signaling the start of the second verse. The style of the verses is the same throughout, but it never fails to catch your attention. It’s like this:

da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da, da-da-da-da-da-da-da-DA-DA-DA (if you catch my drift)

The last few words of every line are escalated in tone, which makes it awesome to hear (the ‘Sugar Me’ part in particular is amazing). The pre-chorus (also called hook) begins again at 02:11, followed by the chorus at 02:22. However, after this particular chorus, the song goes into a sudden musical seizure, with random guitar and synthesizer rifts, the beats remaining constant throughout the interlude. A short pumped up speech follows, and it escapes the musical loop and returns to the pre-chorus (followed by the chorus) at 03:30. The song ends in the same manner, with ‘Pour Some Sugar On Me’ gradually fading off, before ending completely at 04:27.

‘Pour Some Sugar On Me’ is a song by Deff Leppard for their 1987 album, ‘Hysteria’

If you’re looking for something to crank up your day and have a good time, make it a point to listen to this song ONCE everyday.
History: “Bed Intruder” is a song made by a Youtube group called ‘schmoyoho’, after an interview made by the ‘Waff’ news in the USA. This song not only quickly went viral (it currently has a 115 million+ views on Youtube), but also starred in the Billboard Top 100 on the #89 postition. It also turned Antoin Dudson into an internet celebrity (virtually overnight). He also made his own rap performance

What it means: After Antoine Dodson, a young hero from Huntsville, AL, saved his sister from an attack, he gave out an important message both to his community and to the attacker himself (The interview then resulted in the production of this song).

Review: Nothing to review here, it’s hilarious! Check it out for yourself! Just put your brains aside and listen to it! It’s really funny. They’ve (schmoyoho) used the ‘auto-tune’ effect to add even awesome feel of the song.

A final word out: Even though the story behind the interview is quite serious, these guys have gone all out and made the song ridiculously hilarious. Enjoy the song, but also keep in mind the story behind it!

Have fun!
