Maybe get something off your chest? Maybe end up in a fight?

I'll start.

I like Jane's Addiction. A lot. I can still listen to their albums - they're killer. But "Jane Says" is a lame song. Don't ever need to hear it again.

Not sure if this is unpopular.. the first half might be.

Drugs (or drug use) has probably created some of the best music and also destroyed the most music (either by deteriorating performances or death) than anything else.

Strawberry Fields

Don’t Let Me Down

A Day in the Life

Jealous Guy

The Ballad of John and Yoko

In My Life




.. the list is endless.
Yeah...and endless list of self-important, sententious songs. The songs he did with the Beatles was his best work, in my opinion, and, in my opinion were very much the result of collaborative help to bring his ideas to life in a euphonious manner.

I find his later work to be unbearable. The entire concept that frames "Imagine" is a step above the aimless thoughts of a child who upon seeing a commercial about starving children in an underdeveloped nation wonders aloud "why dont they just move".

He gets credit for his musicianship introducing us to sounds we would not have gotten less his experimentation....but that should be about it.

All this Beatles talk has me thinking.

What about the American Beatle? Harry Nilsson?

Love just about everything he has done.

But God I hate that coconut song!

I could rock this all day.

I can’t stand Bruce Springsteen. Maybe that makes me unAmerican.

And what about the voice of Geddy Lee? How did it get so high? Do you think he talks like an ordinary guy?

Ok I was with you about Bruce until a friend made me go see him then I got it. Don't listen to him but will go see him live any time.

Not the biggest fan of Getty's voice but it would only work with what they do. And yes his speaking voice is a bit off also.

Also, I am in the camp that Kurt Cobain was murdered by Courtney Love, but either way, yeah he's dead.
The amount of heroin in his body when they found him is not consistent with then having the ability to shoot yourself like they claim he did.
It’s my understanding he shot up just seconds before pulling the trigger. And the dosage by itself would have killed him anyway.
