Re: Youtube reactors

Yeah, they said what they thought from their perspective, I won't knock them for that. My take was said above, "Wreck" is a song they should not have even bothered with. I still remember the first...

Re: Youtube reactors

Re: Youtube reactors

I've thought about creating a post about this trend of YT reaction videos.

Generally, unless you are talking about a few groundbreaking videos from the mid 80s, I don't like watching people react...

Re: Favourite Song on "Solo" Album

I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who glommed onto "Do You Walk , Do You Talk" as the one that most caught my ear from this set. I'm not sure if I'd call it the best song of the bunch, but I...

Re: NEW BOOK!-ONCE UPON A RED EYE-Life on the road with Gordon Lightfoot-Richard Hari

Re: NEW BOOK!-ONCE UPON A RED EYE-Life on the road with Gordon Lightfoot-Richard Hari

One thought I had after reading it... It seemed to me that the book was intentionally written around a PG-13 rating, makes me wonder what the R-rated version would be like!

Re: CRYSTAL GAYLE and Ribbon of Darkness on her new LP

Modern country I don't care much for , but this leans more retro to my ears, so I have no issues with it. I'd be much more bothered if it was a Country Rap version!
