Hey Guys, Check This Music Video Out....

Recommended Posts

Some of you other old guys will remember this original track, by Neil Young - Old Man (1971).... which was a great / popular song in it's time.

But this 2011 remix by Redlight Kings - Old Man.....

I really wish I could play this track for any of you that like music. Absolutely one of my loudest, smoothest, most defined, and clearest tracks, to date. Straight to the demo folder ;) Not to mention just a kick **** song :)

Hope you like it,

Peace,

Fish

Sorry Chris, that was sad. You'd think that if they were going to ruin a song with Rap (or whatever that's called when they don't actually sing), it could at least be something from the Disco Era! :D

Fortunately I listened to the original so it will take away the possibility of nightmares.

Lund, your kidding me ? Your talking with a guy who listens to any genre (except maybe.... uhhh.... did you mention disco ? WTH ? :) LOL) from any era..... and this song was just REALLY well done.

In fact, I was just checking out some background stuff on this song, and I found out that when this group first asked Neil Young for permission to use it, his lawyers said NO... his advisors said NO... all of his peeps said NO, NO, NO..... But then finally, they got Neil Young himself to listen to it just one time. He loved it, and immediately gave them permission.

Peace,

Fish

Geez, not my deal at all. I'm 95% C&W, but I occasionally like some alternative music.

This is much better "in studio", but Lady Gaga looks so cool as Marilyn Monroe:

:D :D :D

Lund, I couldn't agree with you more. Thank you for posting the old version. Hopefully that will keep me from having nightmares.

So Lund and Bird Dog, I'm just curious, what types of music you guys do listen to ?

I have a very wide taste in music myself. Whatever you listen to, I bet I have some of it in my collection...... but I bet not one of those songs will sound like this recording does on my system.

Hey, so how about this one ? ;) I actually have this in my music collection, and it's a fantastic recording, with some deep bass, and great separation :) Of course kids love it, but adults just trip to hear it like they were at a Disneyland concert :) LOL

Just watched it :) I actually love this song :) LOL

Well hey guys, if you want a song to hate on (because I'm still kind of tripping you don't like that first one (Senko, it's badd, right ? :)) Here's one that's really out there.

You REALLY need to hear this one on a good, balanced, high powered system system ;) Lotta' young people love this stuff (dubstep, glitch) and at least 1 bald headed 47 year old who will never grow up :) LOL

Fish, it might be easier to explain what music I don't like. I just hope that you understand that this is just my opinion and taste in music varies widely.

It starts with some of the older country "twang-twang" music, probably includes most polkas, and definitely includes disco. I didn't include rap in that last sentence as I just don't consider it music. The constant whump-whump effect of the heavy bass could just as easily be accomplished sitting anywhere near a pile driver in my opinion. I also sort of expect the performer to actually be able carry a tune rather than reciting words. Your first choice of music on this thread kind of shows what I mean where it sounds like the original artist's voice is blended into this characters speaking rendition.

Most of the things I do like includes many of the older Big Band sounds including swing, jazz, and/or blues. Not that I will listen to it all of the time, but I do enjoy listening to the likes of Glenn Miller, Boots Randolph, Al Hirt, Count Basie and many others. I also enjoy most of the stuff that came out of the sixties and seventies even though I'm not real big into the bubblegum stuff of that era. Almost anything Motown still ranks high on my list. There was also a time when the Moody Blues was tops. But those where different days in my life I won't be returning to.

These days, I'll occasionally listen to some of the more modern country when its forced on me, but I find myself looking for classic rock when I actually want to listen to music. Did I mention that one of the strange habits I have is ALWAYS driving with the radio off? Rather like how you enjoy fishing alone, my peace and quiet time is behind the wheel.

Now I just have wonder how many of the guys on here don't realize that they've liked Boots Randolph's #1 hit without even knowing it! B)

Thank God we can all agree that we love to fish............

Gentlemen, that is the most RANDOM, ECLECTIC, WACKY mix of music I have ever heard in one post.. :blink:

RW - Sorry, but Lady Gaga looks like woody the woodpecker with that schnozz

Lund- I love me some jazz but the Benny Hill theme??

Chris - Not a fan of the remake, but then again, I never liked Neil Young

I'm mostly a classic rock/ Country guy: Van Halen, Maiden, Jamie Johnson, Jennings, etc

However, I must admit that I have a thing for soulful female artists: Joss Stone, Susan Tedeschi, Fiona Apple, and anything by Jennifer Nettles

Man, I'm screwed up too.... Must be a fisherman thing

Gaga alternative? NOT! Check out some Metric if you want to see a real alt band fronted by a cute blonde, LOL. This'll sound sweet on your truck too, Chris.

OK Please take a minute to hear this.

New artist with some soul to his sound. I love it!

It's really a shame what urban music has become since the 60's/70's. Most of that crap today is just pure garbage. I can't even tell if some of it is english, or supposed to be a joke or what.

Here's my final submission for a video. This one is very minimal on the screaming/growling, and more into the singing. Same label but different band. My link

A southern man don't need Neil Young around. B)

So what was the beef about with those guys anyhow?

I like skynyrd for sure, but N/Y has some good songs.

It was directly to his songs that was about racism in the south. Particularly in Alabama. Songs like "Alabama" and "Southern Man" was thought to degrade the south and Alabama. So Ronnie Van Zant wrote Sweet Home Alabama in respond to it. He also took a shot at George Wallace in the song too. At least that what I've been told growing up. Sweet Home Alabama suppose to sing praise about state of Alabama and also it calls out some controversy issues. Such as Neil Young's songs, George Wallace, and Watergate. Don't you just love music?

Holy dang! That is one of my all time favorite bands. I love the kidney thieves!

Free Dominguez the singer also has some solo albums out. They are more contemporary, but actually really good. The woman can sing.
