The Stranger. IMHO, one of the greatest cover to cover albums ever created.

That Queen cover is great! I recently saw Queen + Adam Lambert and it was great to be in the same venue as Brian May and Roger Taylor - they've still got it. Freddie even made a halogram appearance

Play this for Mrs. Solar:

Ok. This is DEFINITELY off track, and not Cane related, but I've ALWAYS been bothered by Billy Joel's "The Stranger" song.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, the haunting whistling at the beginning and the end of the song. But, the change to the lyrical and melody portion in the middle just never seemed to "suit" the opening and closing "feeling."

I mean he's an unbelievable talent and artist, and I have 4 or 5 of his songs on my changing playlist at all times... but, I just feel like he missed the boat on how the melody and tempo go in the middle of THAT song... too much of a contrast perhaps? I'm sure other people, (and probably Billy himself), love that song BECAUSE of the contrast... I feel it should have stayed with the "haunting" feeling... maybe in a bluesy way, to depict the loneliness and distance provoked by the opening.

OK. Back to your regular viewing here please!

UM 42-14 VT.

Let's Go CANES!

solarcane

roach,
that entire song is a cluster fyk to me.
It starts out with that creepy serial killer whistling, then lurches into a bad tempo. The worst part is when he sings that high part in a key that seems right where he should know better.

But I do like when he sings about Catholic girls.

ESPN's Bear says we will win the Coastal

“Miami should be 5-2 when they take their road trips to Pitt and Florida State,” Fallica said.


Virginia Tech enters this week’s game against Miami looking to regroup from a 45-10 thumping from Duke last week—which was the Hokies’ worst loss to an ACC team since joining the league in 2004.


The Hokies are 1-7 in their last eight games

She didn't say that.

Roach...it is what it is what it is.

Billy Joel and Elton John are in the R&R song writers HOF any day, any time, for any reason.

Name a few others? Eagles? Aerosmith, Zeppelin, Stones? Seeger? Keep going...

UM 34 - VT 13

That is all.

I would probably give The Beatles and Fleetwood Mac a shoutout
Backstreet Boys not so much

Best Song Title of all time
John Hiatt
Since His Penis Came Between Us.

86...LOL...I meant the Hurricanes will roll when the culture changes. That’s what I get for a sleep deprived post.

GnR for me. Also like the works of James Horner, Elliot Goldenthal, Basil Pouledaris, and Andre Rieu.

ALlLgood choices SOUP. Including the Beatles and Fleetwood Mac.
In my opinion...
Leon Russell needs to be in the writers HOF. He's had SO many of his songs "covered," it's hard to believe. Leon was one of my all time favs. (May he RIP). WHAT a voice and talent for writing, keyboards AND guitar. On his Will-o'-the Wisp Album, he played multiple instruments on almost every track, and multi-tracked it with a few other artists. WAY before computers.
If I had a son instead of a daughter, (Jessica... Allman Bros. BTW) He was either going to be Dylan Roach, or Leon Russell Roach. (My Dad's name was also Russell.)

Herbieibis

Aero, for the most part Banda and Rumph have done a good job coaching, BUT recruiting and being closers on the top talent has been below par.
Start out with all these 4 star players and then the decom and we fastly replace them with a few 4's and a bunch of 3's. When we have all them 4's to start with u hear nothing about the evaluation process but once they start dropping their no evaluation process is different and stars don't matter.

Good call Roach

solarcane

Great post roach.
I have a friend that's an avid Cobra fan,
His daughters names are Carroll and Shelby.

solarcane

When guys like Kool and the Gang are in the songwriters hall of fame there are for sure artists out there that should be inducted
Not hating on Kool and the Gang I dig them. I'm just sayin

AeroCane

Herb - in college there are so many coaches that can coach - what separates them in my opinion is how they recruit - they have not done a very good job in this area - we can’t keep the elite guys and we lose most of the very good ones - they are not that good of coaches to make up for it.

A good article about the Canes from the Virginia Tech perspective
A lot of respect for for the Canes.

Well played Sir.

Roll call for V-tech tomorrow...

Basura

Rays get destroyed by V and the Stros. They don’t matchup with one of the best teams ever assembled. Heavy favorites to win the AL crown as well as the WS.

KYcane

Here’s another stellar fun fact we Canes fans can be proud of.
