Day After Day

Postby maccastheman » Fri Jun 06, 2003 10:27 am

Badfinger's biggest hit. It sounds a lot different to me than their other hits at the time. Nice song, but I associate it with a lot of the other A.M. light rock hits of the early '70s. I'll have to get that association out of my mind.

When it first came out, I always though the guitar solo work was Beatlesqe, crica 1969. I don't hear the Lightfoot comparison, to be honest. The guys vocal style, early on, reminded more of macca (voice inflection, etc.).

I think it just has that early '70s feel like "Sundown" and other stuff. It also sounds '70s Hollies to me. But I totally agree on the guitar. Isn't that George playing?

The vocals on No Matter What sound Macca-esque to me.

Yes..me too, MTM. The part of Day after day that is macca-like for me is the "Looking out from my lonely room...."...

I can hear that. The funny thing about this song is how different it is compared to No Matter What and Come and Get It. This has that '70s light rock feel about it, and the others sound very "power-pop" to me.

I like "Baby Blue" also...nice beat and nice Beatly guitar solo, and I SWEAR some Ringo type drum fills. In hindsight, I look at that band as early Oasis without the swollen heads and attitutudes. I mean in relation to their Beatleseque type music. BF being more "poppy" (Abbey Raod?) and Oasis being more freaky (Pepper/Revolver. I'm sure Ive just confused everyone, lol. I'll go back to sleep now. [:D]

Baby Blue is good. I also like Rock of All Ages. It really has that power-pop thing going, too. I agree about the BF/Oasis comparisons. BF could be the beginning of Brit-pop. But I've also heard that about ELO, LOL!

WAD. Very true. Maybe BF was PRE-Brit Pop? [:D]
