Rabz’ Radio Show June 2023 – Favourite Songs


All killer, no filler, Cats.

One of the many things I love about music is its effortless ability to transfer you back to a particular time and place, emphatically triggering memories.

But what exactly are the constituent parts of that rare beast, a favourite song?

To me, the most important aspect (obviously) is the music, rather than the lyrics. “Musical Hooks” are important but ultimately a truly great song will blend both music and vocals into a memorable whole. Vocals can also be an additional instrument instead of just telling a story, see the mighty Liz Fraser, for example.

Song structure remains key as well. A potentially favourite song can be let down by poor structure, especially discordant or unnecessary musical or vocal sections.

A favourite song’s lyrics may be key if they seem to essay a particular situation in the listener’s experience – hence the goodness knows how many songs on attraction, love and heartbreak.

I won’t post my three favourite songs in this thread, as many Cats would already know what they are. This Radio Show is about celebrating and rediscovering our favourites, especially songs we may not have heard for many moons.

This thread’s first song, for example, was alluded to the other evening, as I hadn’t heard it for decades. It is as magical as I remembered – with a remastered audio highlighting the magnificent intro.

World Party – All come true

The second song is all about infatuation and here’s a movie scene that sheds some additional light on its subject matter (I’ll post the audio version later in the evening).

I met you at JC Penny …

So, feel free to post your favourite tunes in the comments, Cats and don’t be hesitant about engaging in some trawling through your archives over the evening.

You just know you want to.

The scene…1974, Palm Beach, the waves softly lapping the shore, two young souls holding hands. A first, very tentative kiss. And this was playing.

I can’t get it out of my head.

Who said it wouldn’t last? 😀

I’ve always loved Ship of Fools by World Party, which Rage would play sometimes. Excellent track. Hadn’t heard All Come True before, so thanks Rabz. Another ripper!

World Party – Ship Of Fools (1987)

Interesting All Come True has a bluesy feel and Ship of Fools some excellent funk. I like both kinds of music!

“Musical Hooks” are important but ultimately a truly great song will blend both music and vocals into a memorable whole.

That is a perfect intro to one of my own music likings. I have to do a news article first though, since I saw it this morning…

Paul McCartney celebrates 50th anniversary of his James Bond theme song Live and Let Die (2 Jun)

Hooks in abundance from Mr McCartney, not to mention the very radiant Ms Seymour! Still one of my favourite Bond fillums.

1981: Jefferson Starship –

A very “open” arrangement, allowing the “featured” bits space to do their thing, Then there is the guitar work.

Speaking of such, this one is a bit of a twist: Probably the birth of the “Power Ballad”.

Favourite song, that’s hard. Really hard.

I’m thinking about it. Neat the toppiest would be Tori Amos – Yes Anastasia, P J Harvey – The Whores Hustle and the Hustlers Whore, Veruca Salt – Earth Crossing, Morcheeba – Big Calm, and Dire Straits – Telegraph Road. But, cheesy and cliched as it is, every time I heard this one on the radio I’d go into a total swoon for ten minutes with the stereo on 11, so Led Zeppelin wins.

And another thing. ’77/78 was the summer of the liberated Telecom phone box. You superglue a twenty-cent piece edge on and drop it in the slot. If you timed it right it gummed up the works and you’d hear this repetitive clunking sound as the machine tries to grab the coin…. You could tell which phone boxes had been liberated by the line of people waiting to call interstate. I’d spent the summer in Tasmania and BMW girl was in Adelaide. Anyway. I liberate a phone in North Hobart and we arrange to meet outside the Bega post office at 11am in six weeks’ time. I arrive about two minutes late and ask BMW girl how long she’s been waiting. A couple of minutes. We spend a few days riding through the Snowys and ride down George St. the day after the Hilton bombing. The rest of the motorcycles roll into Sydney over the next few days. We know nothing about the Sydney music scene, but I knew of Wendy Saddington from GTK, so we go and listen to her at a venue the size of shoe box down near the Basement in Circular Quay. We make up about half the crowd. Wendy is the worse for wear and supporting a cabaret type act called Jimmy and the Boy’s. The lead singer thinks we’ve come to see them!

Like Thornton Wilder’s tale of ‘The Bridge at San Luis Rey’

It’s a song of vanities.
Ecclesiastes, 9:11

I returned and saw under the sun that— The race is not to the swift, Nor the battle to the strong, Nor bread to the wise, Nor riches to men of understanding, Nor favor to men of skill; But time and chance happen to them all.

‘Up on the white verandah, she wears a necktie and a panama hat.
Her passport shows a face, from another time and place,
She looks nothing like that’.

Classic.

2nd track from “Sleeper Catcher” (1978). Love, love, love this song about a couple reminiscing about the past, with certain music—like Glenn Miller and Cole Porter tunes—reminding them of certain memories.

Reminiscing” is a 1978 song written by Graeham Goble and performed by Australian rock music group Little River Band. It remains their greatest success in the United States, peaking at #3 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Piano, sax, trumpet, drums, do wop chicks and a substance enhanced Joe Cocker. It doesn’t get any better.
