When You Look At A Song Differently
« on: March 27, 2017, 12:19:32 AM »

Have you ever been listening to music and for some reason a certain song just grabs you a different way than it ever did before for whatever reason?  We were all partying in the garage a week or so ago and 'My Sharona' came on.  I always liked the song because its fun to play on the drums and I love Bruce Gary's playing, but I never gave it too much thought.  Holy cow, the guitar solo blew me away (you have to listen to the longer version and not the single).  Berton Averre is relentless.  My wife and buddy were floored and kept shouting 'He wont stop'.  It even seems like Gary tries to end it a few times with no success and only does so when he comes in with a slower off beat type fill.  Brutal solo and a song that will now be always different for me.  Sometimes being under the influence makes you look at things in certain ways too.

Something similar happened to me with the song "Politician" by Cream. I had previously seen it as just a good generic blues song, but when I started to pay more attention to the guitar solo (which is double-tracked) my view of that song improved a lot.

I do this all the time. Often someone will point out something in the song like an instrumental bit that I hadn't paid attention to. Or how the words fit with the music at a certain point.  So I relisten  and it changes the song for me.

Another thing is when you hear a song you sort of know in a movie soundtrack. It forces you to pay attention to it. That happened with Lennon's Bring on the Lucie at the end of Children of Men.

It also happened with Paul's New that popped up in a kids film I was watching with my children.
It had passed me by a bit but I quite liked it after hearing it in that context.
