Do they yodle in all of their songs? :P That's the only one I've heard.

They used their voices as an instrument. And yes, I do remember the song - it rocked. However, my all-time song where voices were used as another instrument is Happy 'Cause I'm Going Home, from Chicago III. For the first part of the song, they go "la la la la, da da dada". If you've never heard it, it comes at the end of Travel Suite, which features one of Chicago's early hits, Free.

The third album was the band's most experimental in sound and musicianship, and their most socially aware record. It came out in 1971.

Awesome indeed!

But when I hear the word "Blues" one song usually springs to my mind:

Frank Zappa's Dickie's such an A**hole

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnqB-UsnPAU

wow great Zappa did a ver. of "Baby please don't go" Live with Lennon. the only video I could find for it was on google, but poor quality. There is a remastered audio and it's killer. Frank Zappa is the only person in the world capable of successfully adding YOKO to vocals!! She whines like a newborn!! Zappa rocks!

My Osheaga list (Day one).

Owen Pallett: I watched half of his set. Disappointing as he stopped halfway through his last song due to on-stage sound difficulties.

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros: Incredibly disappointing. "Home" was performed enthusiastically and admirably, although they were running late and had to chop several parts out of the song.

K'Naan: I never watched him, just listened from a green area where I was relaxing. Sounded awful (not my thing) although the Flag song was fun to sarcastically sing along to.

Stars: While the lead singers act absurb, the band put on the best performance I had seen so far. It finally got my excited for the rest of the festival.

Pavement: The best rock show I had seen to date! As a huge Pavement fan, waiting for them to have a reunion, I was super excited to see them and they didn't disappoint. Some dude from Boston hit Stephen Malkmus in the face with a beer, but he didn't miss a beat. It ended up just being sort of funny.

The National: I could only watch from the video screen (I didn't want to lose my hard earned spot for Arcade Fire), but it seemed as though they put on a great show for the people at stage B.

Arcade Fire: Awesome! :D

Ladytron.

They're the closest I could pick to a #1 favourite band.

They're phenomenal musically and lyrically, and seen them live twice - they play everything completely live, no backing tracks. Haven't heard a song of theirs I didn't like, but a few stand out:

(Ghosts)

(Playgirl)

(Commodore Rock)

(True Mathematics)

Beyond that...

Kraftwerk

Jean-Michel Jarre

Rancid

Lynyrd Skynyrd

Syrius (psych jazz/rock

)

Edith Piaf (esp. Non Je Ne Regrette Rien and Mon Legionnaire)

B. B. King

Stephane Grappelli (esp. together with Yehudi Menuhin - AMAZING)

Lokomotiv GT (Hungarian classic rock -

)

Slobodna Europa (Slovak -

)

Vennaskond (Estonian avant-punk -

)

Zabranjeno Pusenje (ex-Yugoslav/Bosnian rock http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6t4k3n2abRA )

I also really like Grazhdanskaya Oborona but Yegor Letov's singing isn't easy to get into, his lyrics are what count.

I'll stop here though... ;)

Wow Zenya, quite the wide taste in music.

I'm actually a lot like you... Will listen to anything from "some" classical, to bluegrass, to punk and metal (love rancid by the way).

The only thing i don't like is rap, danse, techno, etc... I'm a musician, so I can't get into music that's either recycled or computerized/synthesized.

Like the beastie boys, but I don't really consider them rap... I say they're a funk band first, they actually play their own instruments and have some really funky beats.

I'll *almost* take offence to that, as it can be taken to mean that anyone who works withj synthesizers is not a musician; also equating computers with synthesizers - a computer is programmed, a synth, it's a piano that you can change the sound however you want. Check out Jean-Michel Jarre, or especially early Kraftwerk (albums Autobahn, Ralf & Florian, Kraftwerk, Kraftwerk 2). Something to keep in mind with early Kraftwerk: these guys *built* their own synthesizers, in good part, and they studied composition from Karlheinz Stockhausen himself. :)

I have little respect for most of modern electronic dance music, because it's so often just spewn out of a computer. I've played around with some of the modern software, literally in 10 minutes you can spew out something you could hear on radio nowadays, and you don't have to understand anything about music or playing an instrument. It's a big part of why I was blown away when I first saw Ladytron live - they have no backing tracks prerecorded, they PLAY all their instruments. :)

It doesn't get any better than this from this side of the pond. And Chicago is getting ready to get back in the studio and do their 31st album. 31 albums in 43 years! A true American rock dynasty if ever there was one.

Gotta love the blues. :D

If your into grassroots blues, one of my favorite artists is Blind Wille McTell from the late 1920's-1940's

This is what I listen to when I play poker, keeps me in an even temper! I got hooked on him in my teens and had, a rare album (before you tube lol) that I wore out! Youtube has alot of his songs, great to have access to so much.
