GOLD BBs  - "I wanna take you somewhere quiet"
SILVER Edgar Winter - kind of by default (see below).   And because it is.... winter (here, anyway).

BRONZE Tornadoes
TIN Marketts - them of the freaky triangles.  I haven't tried it while using various "substances" (well, I haven't used them at all.   Red wine, however...)

Maybe (probably!) just me, but the Tornadoes and Marketts "hurt my ears" a bit. 

No voices. Just instruments.  And the gramatically correct title.


No voices.  Umm......

GOLD - The Marketts.  Expertly avoiding being hypnotised by this clip by averting my eyes each time, I really enjoyed this laidback, hipster vibe.  Sinister undertones and a small cavalry passing through only compliment the piece.  If this song was a temperature it would be a cool 4 degrees Celsius.   You'd need to store it in the fridge.

SILVER - TBB.  Just lovely.  Perfectly gorgeous.  Has this EVER been used in a movie or tv show?  It could fit with a number of scenarios in that it's a wistful song, but it can also sound different with your moods.  SUCH a close second, but I'd listen to the more upbeat number above before this one.

BRONZE - Mr Winter and co.  I had expected to love this one a lot when hearing the opening bars, but it had its ups and downs.  When somebody rather inconveniently starts that Space Invader game in the middle, I am all done.  If it had ended there, I may have been a whole lot more into it.  This was a number one hit?  Cripes, I'd never heard it before in my life.

TIN - The Tornados.  Hmm.  I remain unconvinced.  There's that 1.15-second intro that sounds like somebody is tooting a horn through a sock, accompanied by a church organ.  It ends in the same socky, organy kind of way, so I only like about fifteen seconds in the middle.  The "eye" of this particular tornado, so to speak.

The Allman Brothers "Jessica".





Thanks t, you rock.

Thanks to Al, D.A.N. and bonnie for the votes and vids, plus the Prof’s contributions.

.Al, good find on After the Game.

Larry, lots of goodies, loved the R.E.M. track.

D.A.N. , John Cage is easy the gold winner (what with silence being golden...)

bonnie, the sound effects on Telstar were (apparently) to simulate the electronics of the satellite and/or outer space sounds. Wikipedia says: “Telstar launched on top of a Thor-Delta rocket on July 10, 1962. It successfully relayed through space the first television pictures, telephone calls, and telegraph images, and provided the first live transatlantic television feed.” A major leap in making the world a little smaller, it was a big deal at the time. Also, the US was concurrently in a Space Race with the USSR, so space themed stuff was popular.

A couple instrumentals by the Lovin’ Spoonful:
For guitar fans: A Cool Million (from the “What’s Up, Tiger Lily?” soundtrack


For harmonica fans: Lonely (Amy’s Theme) (from the “You’re a Big Boy Now” soundtrack.

t, I don't know what to say...maybe I should stick to Morse code or semaphore flags...

GOLD -- The Marketts, Out of Limits -- Familiar hip retro.

SILVER -- BB's, Summer Means New Love -- Good call, Dan! Now that you mention it, it is the original "Somewhere Quiet" from NPP, ain't it? [wink]

BRONZE -- The Tornados, Telstar -- Familiar quaint retro.

TIN -- Edgar Winter, Frankenstein -- A little stale for me. Gotta juice up his electrodes again.


Aside from Macca's yipping and yelping like a doofus, this is pretty much instrumental, with John Bonham amongst the drummers involved:



Need an Austin Powers flashback? (EDIT: What the heck - substituted this. Do you suppose Spielberg had a stunt double at 0:33?) :



Would this count? - the only words are gibberish and it's the original of that classic Muppets bit:



thanks, t !

by which I mean kind of discordant...

just found a likely relative of mine (born 1820s) named 'Silence Heywood' - that's a pretty cool name and sort of on topic this week.

Does yodeling gibberish count as no words? If not my apologies. If so my apologies.

I was only into my 2nd year of [gettin' paid to 'do'] radio when THIS one was new Popeye...(not the spinach guzzler)... T'was quite BIG in Canada at the time.  It no longer feels like it was 'just the other day'.  I still remember it fondly though.

Frank Zappa, "Peaches En Regalia"


The Jimi Hendrix Experience, "Third Stone from the Sun" (instrumental except for distorted spoken words about the destruction of Earth by space aliens, which may have been a reference to Dick Dale being seriously ill)


Hendrix's words:
Quote:
Strange beautiful grass of green,
With your majestic silver seas
Your mysterious mountains I wish to see closer
May I land my kinky machine?

Although your world wonders me,
With your majestic and superior cackling hen
Your people I do not understand,
So to you I shall put an end
And you'll never hear surf music again
 
From an interview with Dick Dale:
Quote:
I read that when Jimi Hendrix said, “You’ll never hear surf music again,” that was in reference to your battle with cancer. Is that true?

You know what’s so funny? Why didn’t they say the rest of his sentence? Do you know what the rest of the sentence is?

No, I have no idea. What is it?

I had never missed a gig in my life, and I had a temperature of 104, and I couldn’t even talk… Jimi was recording in the studio and said, “I heard Dale did a no-show. That’s not like him. You know?”

His guitar player said, “No man, he’s dying.”

They had given me three months to live.

Then Jimi said, “You’ll never hear surf music again.” And then he said, “I bet that’s a big lie. Let’s pack up, boys, and go home.”

That was the full f–king sentence.


Recent surf music with no actual words from La Luz, "T.V. Dream"

Jack White, "High Ball Stepper"


The xx, "Intro"

Jimi's 'bit' there was about Dick.  They were friends and Hendrix was paying tribute to his pal.  It WAS NOT EVER a swipe at The Beach Boys.  Although...if he could talk...I'm sure he would say that he too was glad, like Elton and Bob, to not be mentioned at one specific Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame induction night.
