Janis Joplin singing Me and Bobby McGee

Loud. Very loud.

The original is better IMHO:

This is one of the few cases where I don't agree.

Could be simply that I heard Janis Joplin's version first way back when.

That girl sure had some energy - not surprising that it all burned out so early.

Neither do I.

That girl sure had some energy - not surprising that it all burned out so early.

And a very powerful voice, but sadly, that energy came mostly from a bottle.

I had hoped to spark off other people's ideas of music that they enjoy loud.

I don't always listen to old Metallica albums, but when I do so do my neighbors.

As for Janis, take another piece of my heart does good turned up to 11.

Sandstorm (Darude), Resurrection( PPK), just about any Chemical Brothers, The Who, Redemption Song (Bob Marley), any (all) track(s) on "Hot Fuss" (or indeed any Killers album) . . .

^there is only one band that is worth a shit in that list.

Is there any way to embed youtube videos on this forum? Might be fun to make a playlist thread.

As far as I can tell, no. We lost several tags with the last update including media.

I disagree. From everything I have read about her the energy came from angst. The drugs were an attempt at self medicating.

Having worked in Port Arthur in the mid 90's I can understand.

Depends. For example, when one feels an urge to punch Nazis but none are at hand Red Sector A may tied one over.

When one wants to pause then reflect on the moment at hand Time Stand Still is a reasonable choice.

Well, we can still do it. #bringback2002

Guy asked me the other day, "Why is it that drummers always like Rush so much?". SMDH

I recently watched Foo Fighters at the Greek Acropolis (PBS). I realized that, while Taylor Hawkins is a great drummer, Neil Peart is able to at least double the drum / symbol hits.

Speaking of Foo Fighters, that's another good choice for "play at 11". But with a condition. It requires eating a hamburger, drinking beer, and playing pool at Casino El Camino.

Drummer’s like Neil Peart so much because he is awesome, going back to 2112 Overture in the 70s.

"Neil Ellwood Peart, OC (/ˈpɪərt/; born September 12, 1952), is a Canadian-American musician and author, best known as the drummer and primary lyricist for the rock band Rush. Peart has received numerous awards for his musical performances, including an induction into the Modern Drummer Hall of Fame in 1983, making him the youngest person ever so honored.[1] He is known for his technical proficiency and stamina… Peart is Rush’s primary lyricist, and has also published several memoirs about his travels. His lyrics for Rush address universal themes and diverse subject matter including science fiction, fantasy, and philosophy, as well as secular, humanitarian and libertarian themes. All five of his books are travel-based non-fiction, though they diverge into his life and these subjects as well. "

Who inspired Neil Pert?

And look at some of the setups he’s played

Chicago: 25 or 6 to 4
BTO: Not Fragile, Giving it all away
Deep purple: Lazy, Sweet Child in Time
ELO: Fire on High, Poker
non-blondes: What's going on.
1812 Overture, Beethoven's 9th symphony.
Queen: Stone Cold Crazy
heather alexander: March of Cambredth

I might have a "high energy" playlist, but it's on my other computer.

I'm also a big fan of Pink Floyd and Simon&Garfunkle, but they don't need to be loud, so much.

OK, Comfortably Numb, Wish you were here and The Fletcher Memorial Home have to be played on eleven or higher, as does Paul Simon's Obvious Child

...and it goes without saying, the final movement of Saint-Saën's symphony no.3, and Bach's Tocatta and Fugue (gonna need a bigger subwoofer)

non-blondes: What’s going on.

Oops. In a way, I miss the days when liking a song meant having to go out and buy the album and listen to more than just that one song. Nowadays, you just download individual songs, stick it in a playlist, and never even learn to spell the band name… :frowning: Historically, my favorite songs from albums have included songs that hardly ever got airtime (Foreigner: “Tramontane”, for example.)
I’m showing my age, though :slight_smile:

Cat Stevens' "Bitterblue" was maybe my first "must be really loud"

Rolling Stones "I can't get no satisfaction"

The Band "The Weight"

Queen "I want to break free"

Donna Summer "State of Independence" (but a difficult choice, most of her stuff needs the knob turned right up)
