This song and "Frozen" in general make me realize that as internet-savvy and up-to-date on pop culture I tend to think I am, if you don't know children you don't know shiat about what is going on in the world.

I have no idea how this song goes. I am aware of it only by people talking about how incessant it is.
 
2014-06-22 09:18:48 PM
um that sounds like crap. Is that how it is at big concerts? And I don't know the song either.
 
2014-06-22 09:29:03 PM
There's only one "Let It Go."  Anything else is crap.

Stop me if you've heard this before, what has 9 arms and sucks?

Oh you have... well, okay then

I went to the YouTube page and watched it. Then I started reading the comments, for some reason. For those of you scoring at home, yes, some of them started talking trash about Obama.

O_o

"Let It Go" is a poor woman's "Defying Gravity."

Good! I'm tired of his socialist policies causing 90s bands to cover Disney songs.

That was even worse than Adele Kazeem's version of it.

Good lord man...I've heard drunks at karaoke bands sound better, that was physically painful to listen too.

At the same time, what is the harm in filtering out the bullshiat that gets foisted on us by the mainstream media? I personally love Frozen and Let It Go, but I could have happily lived several lifetimes without hearing that annoying Happy song that is currently infesting the cultural landscape like a tick on the ass of the world. Other people love it, though, and that's just fine by me.

If we all cared about the same things, the world would be a terrible place. There's just too much content out there to know and live everything intimately. There's just no time. If you don't filter out some stuff, then no one would ever be an expert at anything because they would have no time to dig deep on the things they love.

DeaH: That was painfully off key.


It had more of a "How Can I Shoehorn This In Here" kinda feel.

As an acoustic musician my specialty is doing live mash-ups; Hendrix/Zeppelin, Elvis/Leonard Cohen, Wallflowers/Lorde, Better Than Ezra/Misfits, etc.

Those first few seconds when the light goes on and you go for it is, at best, painful to listen to and worse to try and perform.  You know something is there.  As a musician you can feel it; there's the groundwork laid of rhythm and the right chords or intervals, you know the pocket exists.  The hard part is switching gears stylistically to make it sound right and making sure you have the range to pull it off.  About half of the mash-ups I come up with I end up writing off because it just moves in a direction that's too awkward or obvious or physically tough to accomplish with my voice.  I have a decent range but what makes a great mash-up is the switching of gears and being on top of it but making it seem natural.

It took me nearly a month to pull off the Elvis/Leonard Cohen one.  Both songs were just too great to not put together.  The hardest part was not coming off as another ham-fisted cover of "Hallelujiah" and being able to pop over to Elvis great baritone range.

I give Ed props for going for it in a live setting.  When the notes were going to be waaaaaay out of his range he leaned back on it and made it his own.  It's better to sound like you're slacking as yourself than to fail miserably and have put in a ton of work and have nothing to show for it.

I like it Metalized.

No vocals, just metal

I'm not going to listen to that. I would much rather keep my memories of Pearl Jam's Ten, Vs and Vitalogy unsullied.

Pearl Jam has been doing that for 20 years. You can watch their 1994 appearance on SNL and see Eddie drift into some Neil Young, way out of tune of course.

We'll see if he does it in Berlin on Thursday.

I'll be there.

Eddie Vedder has zero talent.

None.

Zip.

Zilch.

When Radio Paradise plays his solo slop or Pearl Jam, they get a 10 minute time out from me.

Jesus, I hate that maggot's voice (or lack thereof).

And yet he contributed substantially to the definition of an entire musical generation, much like equally "talentless" hacks such as Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison or Robert Plant.  So tell us, what musical contribution have you made that qualifies you to judge who should and should not be regarded as cultural icons of their particular generation?

This. Steely Dan sucked ass the first time around; I don't need Pharell trying to resurrect their sound. It was bad enough when Daft Punk dredged up a disco sound-alike with "Get Lucky."

The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: Pearl Jam has been doing that for 20 years. You can watch their 1994 appearance on SNL and see Eddie drift into some Neil Young, way out of tune of course.


Hell they even use the end of "Daughter" to drift into some of their own songs. I'm pretty sure I have one of those 100 or so live albums they released where they tack on a verse of "Glorified G".

It could have been much worse.

He could have vomited out some modern country bullshiat.

Ed. You've already got their moms. Trying to lure the kids in is just greedy and just a tad desperate looking. And, of course...

I have an Uncle who claims that Zeppelin is terrible because "screaming isn't singing."  He formed this opinion decades ago as the result of the opening of "Immigrant Song" and he has stuck to his guns on it ever since.

Meanwhile the local classic rock station he listens to almost constantly is using bands like Opeth, Pantera and Ministry in their bumpers.  The irony is just wholly overwhelming.

Eddie Vedder is pals with Satanist child-murderer Damien Echols.

easy mistake, since, even though "let it go" is repeated multiple times, the song isn't called "let it go"

I like Eddie Vedder's solo stuff. Someone gave me a bunch of his music. And I know nothing about Pearl Jam, wasn't even sure which band he was in. I knew from his name and voice that he was somebody, just not which band.

I bet I wouldn't like Pearl Jam either. They're kind of "grunge" right? I also discovered that the only songs of Nirvana's I like are the ones they used to play on the radio. Listening to Kurt Cobain squalling is not my idea of a good time.

Damien Echols did write lyrics to Army Reserve.

But then again, Echols isn't a satanist child-murderer

As I've said before, I'll always remember the Winter of 2013/2014 for frequent snow days filled with endless repeats of "Let It Go" and massive piles of rainbow loom creations. I look forward to the day when I'm blithely ignorant of the things that obsess 7-year-old girls. (Though I'm sure I'll always miss the 7-year-old girl.)

my point, exactly...the 2 are indeed pals...ed was at the trial that finally got damien released...right there on the front row...ed and pearl jam were advocates for freeing the west memphis 3 ever since the wm3 went to prison.

ok, i know, i wasn't there...but from everything i've seen/read/heard, i believe that echols and the other 2 were indeed wrongly accused/convicted

the fact that i was a pearl jam fan well before that wm3 thing happened, and i still am today, just makes all that better
