I wasn't going to jump on this thread but this is as good cover, totally transforms the Beatles song, two minutes of glorious rock jazz fusion then dulcet vocals over crashing guitars and drums, epic - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIcpJFQDa64 and I have a cool story (well cool to me anyway).

I was power walking with a friend who I had been trying to change into a fwb for a while, she wasn't unaware of my intents but was coyly resisting, and this came on my iPod, so I sang it out loud, the first three lines are:
When I'm walking beside her
People tell me I'm lucky
Yes, I know I'm a lucky guy

I swapped out the guy for girl, and sang the rest, all the way through.

A week later we meet up again, and she says, you got the lyrics wrong, she said it's lucky guy not lucky girl, I said I was singing form the heart not the lyric sheet - she was sucking my face off a minute later, right there in the park.


You know, I've never heard that album before. My earliest is "The Yes Album" maybe it's the lack of Alan White, but I don't care for much of of it. Not enough "white space" or down time; to much of a wall of sound. there is a lot of close to the edge in the background though, maybe even some relayer. sounds a lot like early genesis (which I do like)

On that note, Yes does an amazing and much better cover of their America. The guitar (5:50 m) is amazing.


'America' is probably one of my all time favorite songs. Some of the most beautiful and descriptive lyrics from a pop song. And the way Paul Simon sings,

"'Kathy I'm lost', I said though I knew she was sleeping
'I'm empty and aching and I don't know why'
Counting the cars on the New Jersey Turnpike
They've all come to look for America".

Gives me chills. No one can convey the desperation of those words the way Paul Simon does.

Young lovers meets the broken American dream meets Burroughs and Kerouac.

speaking of such, have you ever tried getting though Naked Lunch… I had an easier time with james Joyce

But I've heard the words before
It's sleeping in my memory
I won't disturb the slumber of feelings that have died
If I never loved I never would have cried

And a rock feels no pain
And an island never cries.

Its weird, my mom was a big s&g fan, so I knew all the words before I knew what it meant. I could even sing the songs on command in high school around the fire...after a beer and a joint of course :lol:


I suppose good music. Good lyrics. Good melodies. Good performances. These these cross over and through different generations. I am 32. But I love the music of my grandparents and my parents.

Me too. However, when I tell people my favorite genre is early-century vintage blues, they look at me like I've just explained the square root of a quadratic equation to them. Oh well, the world is doomed.

Probably not early enough for ya, but I've been digging on some blues lately. The dead did a cover, with Pigpen of course.

I really like this guy's harmonica style....

And I was reminded how much I love Pigpen.
