Yes, @am1m it's the greatest congregation of pop talent from the US to record a song whose proceeds were donated 100 % to UNICEF under the USA FOR AFRICA banner. Behind the scenes activities showing informal moments and rehearsals during the dead of the night are also seen on these You Tube links:-






Do not miss those swanky limos on which arrivals of a few popstars are shown.

Do not miss those swanky limos on which arrivals of a few popstars are shown as on 28.01.1984. This video has commentary by actress Jane Fonda. She revealed the Michael Jackson skipped the American Music Awards that evening to come straight to this studio for rehearsal. Many others drove straight from the American Music Awards ceremony to this studio. In fact, it was producer and singer Quincy Jones, Michael Jackson and Lionel Ritchie who spearheaded the noble cause doing a lot, behind the scene activities to get all the 42 other artistes (42+3=45) under one roof for recording the song.

Re: The Music Thread

Music composer Vijayanand passed away. His Magnum opus in Kannada was the movie "Dance Raja Dance", whose music sequencing was done by teenage prodigy AR Rahman, when he was still called Dilip.


GTA had music from this movie



Dance Raja Dance also was debut of Vinodraj



Vijayanand's songs were released as Asian Pop in western countries in those days.

Re: The Music Thread

Any Hoobastank fans? Cooked this over a weekend:



Been working on my first album for quite some time. The project is in development hell but at least I have 5 tracks instrumentally prepped.
I have tracks without vocals recorded and some POV videos of my Uttarakhand trip from back in Nov '23. Hence, this is the cheapest and the way with least effort to drum up some music videos:







I am sure that some people who like rock/metal and POV videos will like this stuff. I don't have a strict timeline of the release yet but should be done by March/April

Nice cover man. Hope to see more

Same Direction and Crawling in the dark are staple songs in my playlist. Too bad they could not get as popular as LP.

Thank you. Have started giving preference to attempting covers instead of going outdoors again.

Agreed, if you like the way they sound (or this particular album itself), you should try Headspace by Pulse Ultra. Fantastic album but the only one they ever made.

My most favorite Super Bowl Half Time show ever.

A big fan of Hip-Hop (My favorites being Snoop Dog, Dr. Dre and Tupac Shakur)

Watch it on a good home theatre at home. The magnanimity blew me away !!

Dr. Dre looks different! His body seems less bulky now. But then, I last saw him on "I need a Doctor" which was long time back.

Yeah, but a bit disappointing that most Indians do not like hip hop. Even on Team-BHP:

Metal makes my head bang, Rap makes my head nod!

Love old skool rap music with lyrical flow and sampling old songs thrown in.

Wu-Tang - CREAM
Nas- NY state of mind
JayZ Eminem - Renegade (for the Eminem part, genius flow)
Mobb Depp - Shook Ones
Eminem - The way i am
Dre/2pac - California Love
Dre/Snoop - Still Dr Dre
travis barker busta rhymes - let's go (The verse by Busta in this is just insane)
The Monstars - Hit Em high (From the space jam soundtrack) This song has no business being this good in an animated movie

And many more...

Re: The Music Thread

When I opened the newspaper yesterday morning, I was sad to read the passing away of Pankaj Udhas.

As a tribute to him, I was listening to his songs 'Sach bolta hu main' and 'Ahista' on the way to work yesterday. A great artist, indeed.

I love your cover versions too, love what you do with that guitar. I wish I could play atleast one instrument myself. But never got the chance to learn.

Haha thank you so much! It is never too late to learn. A friend of mine started learning guitar about a year ago and now he plays cleaner than me.

Glad to see that there are so many people here who are into heavier music.

Re: The Music Thread

The late American country singer took a dig at Henry Ford's heralding of the assembly line era with his song "Lord Mr Ford" released in 1973.



The lyrics:-

Quote:
Well, if you're one of the millions who own one of them gas-drinking, piston-clinking, air-polluting, smoke-belching, four-wheeled buggies from Detroit City, then pay attention,
I'm about to sing your song son.
Well, I'm not a man appointed judge
To bear ill-will and hold a grudge
But I think it's time I said me a few choice words
All about that demon automobile
A metal box with the polyglass wheel
The end result to a dream of Henry Ford
Well I've got a car that's mine alone
That me and the finance company own
A ready-made pile of manufactured grief
And if I ain't out of gas in the pouring rain
I'm a-changin' a flat in a hurricane
I once spent three days lost on a cloverleaf
Well it ain't just the smoke and the traffic jam
That makes me the bitter fool I am
But this four-wheel buggy is
A-dollaring me to death
For gas and oils and fluids and grease
And wires and tires and anti freeze
And them accessories
Well honey, that's something else
Well you can get a stereo tape and a color TV
Get a back-seat bar and reclining seats
And just pay once a month, like you do your rent
Well I figured it up and over a period of time
This four thousand dollar car of mine
Costs fourteen thousand dollars
And ninety-nine cents, well now
Lord Mr. Ford, I just wish that you could see
What your simple horseless carriage has become
Well it seems your contribution to man
To say the least, got a little out of hand
Well Lord Mr. Ford what have you done
Now the average American father and mother
Own one whole car and half another
And I bet that half a car is a
Trick to buy, don't you
But the thing that amazes me, I guess
Is the way we measure a man's success
By the kind of automobile he can afford to buy
Well now, red light, green light, traffic cop
Right turn, no turn, must turn, stop
Get out the credit card honey, we're out of gas
Well now, all the cars placed end to end
Would reach to the moon and back again
And there'd probably be some
Fool pull out to pass
Well now, how I yearn for the good old days
Without that carbon monoxide haze
A-hanging over the roar of the interstate
Well if the Lord that made the moon and stars
Would have meant for me and you to have cars
He'd have seen that we was all born
With a parking space
Lord Mr. Ford, I just wish that you could see
What your simple horseless carriage has become
Well it seems your contribution to man
To say the least, got a little out of hand
Well Lord Mr. Ford what have you done
Come away with me Lucille
In my smoking, choking automobile
Jerry Reed's tryst with the automobile saw him release another hit "East bound and down, loaded up and truckin' ",in 1978. The blue grass guitar is one of a kind.



Incidentally, Jerry Reed who was born in 1937, passed away in 2008.
