Best song about the sun

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by g-dude, Jun 24, 2022.

  1. Okay, so we’ve done a good job on the moon. Let’s take on the sun!

    Pros: groovy bassline, great vocals.
    Cons: nobody wants to hear about the Age of Aquarius. Get to the good part!

    Pros: there are so many versions, but I had to go with this because they blend so well together.
    Cons: Whar bass? WHAR????

    Pros: you can sing Beavis and Butthead style to it.
    Cons: that hat

    Pros: You can tell they’re actually playing it. Ron Carter.
    Cons: sort of had to stretch the definition

    Pros: soulful with a great groove
    Cons: ain’t no sunshine

    Pros: great song for cruising or just chilling out
    Cons: some of the lyrics are…well, it doesn’t seem like they tried hard.

    Pros: great singing voice
    Cons: it isn’t “Take Me Home Country Roads”

    Pros: none
    Cons: I have brought shame upon my family for seven generations by including this.

  6. "Some of us aren't infatuated with classic rock."

    But it's still good.

    But that’s the kind of PF that “classic rock” stations will never play. It’s too weird and different for the average CR consumer to handle. They’d change the channel in a hurry if they ever got a load of “Set The Controls…”or this(which is about thousands of suns)…
