Other music

Postby Len » Tue Apr 09, 2002 6:12 pm

Just out of curiosity: what other types of music do all you Macca-fans listen to?

I myself am also (obviously) a big Neil Finn fan. Kate Bush is also an artist who can send shivers up my spine. Furthermore: Mike Oldfield, The Tea Party, The Rembrandts, Tori Amos, etc. I also enjoy classical music and Irish folk.

If you like McCartney, there was a band called Jellyfish that came out in 1990-1993 and had two Beatlesque albums called "Bellybutton" and Spilled Milk.

In addition, i find a quirky band called XTC very Beatley - the lead singer reminds me of the sharp wit of Lennon with the melodic genius of Paul.

How can you not enjoy people like Little Richard, Chuck Berry, Motown, Marvin Gaye, etc??

Also, how about Billy Joel???

And Hendrix??

I see a lot of similarities between the musical hybrid Prince and McCartney.

I think Stevie Wonder is just about on par with McCartney in terms of musical melody and pure genius

yeah, Chris. I remember Jellyfish. And XTC are definitely cool. And I'm also glad you mentioned some of the R&B/soul legends. There's nothing better sometimes than listening to the voices of people like Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, or Al Green. People should also check out Ella Fitzgerald. Pure soul.

Al Green is phenomenal. So, of course, everyone knows how much Linda (And Paul) appreciated and loved Otis Redding. I don't know if anybody ever noticed that Marvin Gaye's Trouble Man (Song) sounds a lot like the orchestra in "Live and Let Die". Also, i mean how great is Little Richard - the early stuff. You also have to love Stevie Wonder (Paul put braille on Red ROse Speedway) and of course Carl Perkins.

Buddy Holly is a pure legend - his stuff is great

I never understood 50's music until i went back and read how much it moved the Beatles and now i really like it.

Ram,

If you like Ella, just check out Sara Vaughan - she is pretty amazing. We all know how much Paul liked Peggy Lee (music man and all that).

Good advice, Chris. I've heard about Sarah Vaughn all my life, but have never bought any of her material. Her work definitely goes on my "to get list." But, I have another one for you....NINA SIMONE! Whoa! Man, I am at a loss for words. All I gotta say is, you must experience for yourself.
