I've got a few of my own confessions, but I'm not sure if I'm ready to share them with everyone yet - they're really bad. But when I do, it will be payback time Offramp. :D

I have a feeling the time each of us "comes of age" has a lot to do with various unexplainable affectations of certain songs. I love "Disco Inferno" too, but probably only because it was my first weekend as a freshman at Iowa State, (where the drinking age was still 18), and I stood there like a pimple-faced, stunned Q-tip in a t-shirt in my very first disco!, loud music blaring, more booze than I've ever seen right there on the wall, and scantily-clad females with large uh elbows everywhere! Damn I love that song...

Oh, and Phil, Brasil '66? Was it "Look Around" by chance? ;) Wasn't too much of a Mendes fan but heard a lot of him via the Tijuana Brass and the Baja Marimba Band!

Disco Inferno has a mondo chorus...I love the way the bass line descends through the changes in the first two bars, then spends the next two bars dropping back down and coming back up.

AND...as far as arrangements go, it's actually pretty sparse through the verses. Give it a listen.


I also like Quincy Jones' "The Dude" album. "Turn On The Action", "Just Once", and "The Dude" are some of the phuckin' BEST written.

'know what? I'm digging it out RIGHT NOW and putting it in my iPod. heh.


Lesse, who else...Sergio and Brasil '66..right on...Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass....yyyeeeaaah, baby! ("you're on...thhhheeee dATINNNG GAAAAAAMMMMME!!!")...and of course....


Tom Jones

I've upped my standards; now, up yours.

"The 80`s band Naked Eyes kicked some major posterior-one of my favorite clean tone guitar songs: You made me

promises promises"


That whole album is killer. Great songs, great performances/arrangements, and really cool production. Unfortunatly, Rob Fisher (the keyboardist) died in 1999.

Back in early '80 I was smitten with a young lady whose favorite song at the time was "Lost in Love" by Air Supply. I went home and learned it for her overnight, of course the relationship went nowhere. I'm sorry....

That's probably the #2 spot in the all-time great pure pop category.

What's #1?

Tom Jones is the man, and I say that without shame! Any performer who, after nearly a half a century in the biz, can still step on stage and unselfconsciously shake it up and do covers of artists like Prince ("Kiss") and Lenny Kravitz ("Are You Gonna Go My Way") deserves some props.

Paul Williams


I liked the music from the movie "A Star is Born" with Kris Kristofferson and Barbara Steisand. Paul wrote most of that music. Another of his "Phantom of the Paradise". Great movie with great music.

Yum, Yum! Eat em up!

Another was Deodato's 'Also Sprach Zarathustra'.
