    Favourite song on Lynyrd Skynyrd ''Pronounced...''

    The first Lynyrd Skynyrd album, or Pronounced 'Lĕh-'nérd 'Skin-'nerd, to give it its proper title, is one of my all-time favourite albums and in my opinion one of rock's finest debuts. With such a stellar line up of songs, including several classic rock staples, I thought this album would be an...

    Song By Song Battle #1 – Led Zeppelin II VS Led Zeppelin IV

    I’ve had an idea for a twist on the song and album battles on this forum with a game I have called ‘Song By Song Battle’. My idea for this game is broadly similar to the song battles, but with the expanded scope of the album battles: . Take two classic albums with the same number of songs (or...

    Taylor Swift trademarks her lyrics

    This isn't the type of music I normally like to talk about but I thought this was quite an interesting development. More info on this story here (if this link doesn't work please let me know): BBC News - Taylor Swift trademarks lyrics such as 'sick beat' Really not too sure about this - I can...

    Incomplete albums in your collection

    Are there any albums in your music collection where for whatever reason you do not own the complete album, but only certain songs? I think this is more relevant for those of us who store music on their computers rather than on analogue* formats though it would be interesting to read if anyone...

    Favourite songs by bands

    I found a thread in the Graveyard section of this forum where the original poster gave a list of bands or singers and other posts gave their favourite songs by each of the bands listed. I liked the idea and though it might be interesting to do something similar, especially with so many people...

    Battle of the similarly titled Led Zeppelin songs

    In the This or That thread I recently gave a choice between Led Zeppelin's Bron-Y-Aur Stomp and Bron-Yr- Aur. I received a suggestion to make this into a poll, so belatedly I have - but with a twist. As the main reason for my choice between the first two choices was the similarity between...

    Controversial or unpopular opinions

    I found a thread along these sort of lines on another forum (albeit for something completely different) and I thought it might be interesting to see where our musical opinions differ from those of friends, relatives, critics etc. I would suggest two guidelines: 1) Keep this thread strictly...

    Signs of Life vs Cluster One

    One thing that unites the two post-Waters Pink Floyd albums is that they both open with an atmospheric instrumental track - Signs of Life on A Momentary Lapse of Reason, and Cluster One on The Division Bell. So I thought I'd create a poll where you can choose your favourite of these two...

    Best Don Felder Eagles song

    Out of these Eagles songs, which do you think is best? My criteria for inclusion is that Don Felder must be credited as a writer - as much as I love his solo on One Of These Nights, for instance, I don't think it can really be considered a Felder song, per se. You may notice a certain...

    Songs or albums that cause disagreements

    Are there any songs or albums (or indeed bands) which you really like but your relatives or friends can't abide? Or vice versa? In the latter instance, the first song that springs to my mind is R.E.M.'s Shiny Happy People, which my sister likes but I can't stand! On the flip side, she...

    Seamus vs Several Species of Small Furry Animals...

    Feel free to choose your favourite out of these two Pink Floyd novelty songs! I have to say Seamus is musically superior to Several Species (just about any other Pink Floyd song is though), but that would be missing the point of this poll and therefore I'm going to pick 'Several Species Of...

    Dire Straits: Top 10 songs

    Having recently contributed to the threads for the top ten Pink Floyd and Fleetwood Mac songs, I wanted to make a similar one for another of my favourite bands, Dire Straits. I'll set the ball rolling with my list (in chronological order): Sultans Of Swing In The Gallery Single Handed Sailor...

    There's talk on the street...

    Hi all, I am Jonny and as you can tell I am new to classic rock forum. I only really became interested in music less than two years ago. I dislike the vast majority of modern pop music, and especially loathe rap, hip-hop and dance, and have instead gravitated to older rock music...
