Best title ever for a piece of music
Like the Catholic Caveman, who tagged me, I will go with a long title. Sixteen Little Red Noses and a Horse that Sweats by Jim Stafford. (Second would be his I Ain't Sharin' Sharon)
Most underrated guitarist
Wally Bryson of the Raspberries, though the Caveman's choice of Chicago's Terry Kath (1946-1978) is up there. Jim Croce's (+1973) lead acoustic guitarist also ranks up there.
Music that moves me to tears
All by Myself by Eric Carmen, especially the Rachmaninoff piano solo in the 7:13-long album version.
Most unusual lead instrument in a piece of music
That would be Ted Nugent's guitar, played with a violin bow, on his Double Live Gonzo album. In any of my podcasts, it would be Shamus' voice.
Coolest name ever for a Rock 'N Roll band
Gotta love that generic band name from the 1960's, The Band
Worst genre of music ever
It's a tie between Rap and Hip Hop, and that stuff today that people actually have the colossal nerve to call R&B. I'm sorry, when I think R&B, I think BB King. I agree with Caveman that Rap is definitely the "bastard child" of disco, and disco was a bad thing. However, the "bastard child" really turned out to be a "problem child", far worse than its ancestor, IMO.
Best guitar jam
I will agree on Freebird.
Music that's ever scared your kid
I don't remember any particular piece of music that scared any of my kids (remember, I'm a father of four). I can remember music that scared me as a kid, however - that would be anything on the organ by the old bitty of an organist at the neighborhood church, played and/or sung. It was just dang awful! When she finally retired, it was a breath of fresh air. Her replacement came in when I was nine. That replacement and I have been good friends for three decades now.
National Anthem that most gets the blood pumping
Other than the U.S., Canada, and Deutschland, I really don't know many national anthems. I will say Canada. In addition, it's a lot easier to sing than our own here in the U.S., and doesn't blatantly promote rockets and bombs. (George Carlin once said, We have the only national anthem that mentions f***ing rockets and bombs in it!)
OK Brian, who will you tag?
Anyone who dares to read this.
