TripSixes: Rape, murder? I thought it was 'hey momma." Well there goes my childhood.
MarshHawk: Saw her interviewed on CBS Sunday Morning (a program us old folks watch while methodically picking the tapioca out of our dentures), and the bit about Gimme Shelter was great. She came into the studio not knowing who the Stones were and sang her butt off, pulling heavily from her background singing in church. All the while, she was thinking, "What is this I'm singing about? Rape? Murder? Huh?"
YoOjo: Huh, someone opened their cocksucker and made some noises, got paid and went on with their life. How in the farking world is that worthy of my attention? Headline misled me into thinking I'd be interested in this shiat somehow./grumpy//good article, quite interesting read///no idea what I'm doing
HST's Dead Carcass: If you listen really close to Gimme Shelter, when her voice breaks, you can hear said hooting and hollering right after. They knew they were making magic and I still get goosebumps every time I hear that song.
enderthexenocide: i always used to like reading through album liner notes to see the "additional musicians" section where they would list backup singers and people who played a piano or a violin on one song or something. i've always wondered how a career like that must feel, always playing music with a variety of different bands but never getting any real recognition or getting famous for it. i'm guessing there are musicians out there who have played on hundreds of albums and nobody knows who they are. i find that sort of thing interesting.
Zombalupagus: Was always fond of Clare Torry's background singing in Great Gig in the Sky becoming the foreground singing. Still gives me chills. And if you're wondering what the music looked like on paper for that kind of singing there wasn't any. She pretty much ad libbed the whole thing.Tried to find the Roger Waters interview where he talks about that but no luck with the internets this morning. But here's a link to the album version of the song anyway, so you can listen to it again, or, perhaps, for the first time.
qgmonkey: I always wondered who was the backup singer in "Gimme Shelter". Thanks Fark!
