WC1215...I've heard that little trick done before and it really pisses me off!...I hate it when they change the pitch to make the records shorter...or to speed a slow ballad up to mid tempo...I'm very sensitive to every little thing about music I listen to...and it really riles me up when some over-ambitious hack tries to meddle with it....Eeeeck!

Muzza here this time Mr E. Unfortunately No. For some reason a lot of new bands with young and inexperienced players in them seem to get airtime. An awful lot of it is noisey and lacking in substance. Lots of Rap and Hip Hop mainly due to the Maori and Pacific Island influences. The good ones leave New Zealand quickly and go to Australia, UK or the States.

Muzza :cool:

Dave I actually have no problem with the 'Can-con' law. I have quite a few musician friends and that law has saved their careers and put food on the table for them.

Jann Arden has a restaurant here in her hometown of Calgary, and she shows up every Friday, guitar in hand, to play a few songs for the clientele.

Canada has many different laws to support Canadian people and product, just as Japan and France does also, and in each case I think they are doing the right thing by their people and nation.

U.S. attempts to do so would be met with unending litigation because we would have to ensure that all markets and subject matters were kept free and open to ensure China complete access to them!!

1-Just heard the full "Hang On Sloopy" by The McCoys on Cable's "Music Choice".

For reasons I couldn't even guess the #1 single we all know and love was one verse shorter.


2-Anne Murray's hit version of "Danny's Song" deleted that awful "Pisces Virgo Rising" verse from Loggins and Messina's original..

This is one time I say "Here's To You"...Capitol Records.-Ira.

The single version of Hall & Oates' "She's Gone" jumps straight from the first two lines of the first verse to the second two lines of the second verse. Annoys the hell out of me every time.

The first full two verses are:

Everybody's high on consolation
Everybody's trying to tell me what is right for me, yeah
My daddy tried to bore me with a sermon
But it's plain to see that they can't comfort me

Sorry Charlie for the imposition
I think I got, I got the strength to carry on
I need a drink and a quick decision
Now it's up to me, ooooh, what will be

I love the line "My daddy tried to bore me with a sermon," and I hate that it's not in the version you hear on the radio. It describes perfectly that morose feeling you have when someone's dumped you or let you down, and one or the other of your parents, or someone, lectures you about how you're way better off without them. "Spare me the sermon, OK? I'm not in the mood."
