wrong wrong wrong

Posted by screech on

As I'm writing this I'm watching the dirty projectors perform on Conan. it just reminds me why i like music. music shouldn't be about topping a sound on top of a sound, it should be about every sound adding to a bigger sound.(its always the melody). rhythm did the same.

'That night I stayed in my room and just played it over and over again. I listened really intensely to every instrument, to every word, to the way the choruses fit and then - poof! - all of a sudden it was like The Matrix . It all fell into place. Sounds kind of corny, I realise, but I knew then how music was built.' [/quote]

WOW!!!! I never knew that. The strokes are my favorite band, of course right after the doors. I grew up listening to the doors and they were one of the first bands I ever really heard and instantly loved them. I also learned and understood how music worked from constantly listening to them just as Julian did. So to just find that out, is pretty cool. I think thats why I love the strokes so much because of such the huge doors influence present and found throughout all over their music.

On another note, I been to some parties, and at times of being drunk, I would hear the first few chords of American Girl being played and instantly thought, 'hell yea this party rocks, theyre playing the strokes, and then to hear the next few chords and be severely disappointed, hahaha

Yeah, I heard that Stern interview too. I hate that interview.

[quote="Max Fischer"]everyone says Julian ripped off Tom Petty's American Girl and made Last Nite.[/quote]

Julian said it. A caller on Howard Stern told Julian he thought the intro sounded like [i]American Girl[/i]. And Julian said, "Yeah, I sorta ripped that off."

And the rest of it was heavily inspired my the Doors' [i]Touch Me[/i], methinks.

I don't know though.. I don't know if there are rules. I don't really understand what makes music good.. because for instance everyone says Julian ripped off Tom Petty's American Girl and made Last Nite.. but I hate Tom Petty and love the Strokes and I don't like that American Girl song but think last Nite is cool as hell.. so what's the secret?

I wouldn't be surprised if Julian could take almost any song and make it cool. No matter how crappy. I think that was actually what he was doing with 11th dimension.
