    Default Greatest Moments in Recorded Music

    Just wondering what everyone's favorite piece of recorded music might be. I'm not looking for a song or album. Just a particular moment that transcends all else. Maybe it's a riff. Maybe it's a single lyric. It might be the way a song fades out for all I know.

    My personal favorite would be on James Brown: Live at the Apollo when he finally and completely wins over the crowd on Lost Someone. Up to that point you could sense the adoration and excitement, but it had yet to be taken to the next level. That moment about halfway into the song where the connection between performer and crowd becomes its own entity. Nowhere is this best encapsulated than with that single piercing shriek ushered by some nameless woman -- followed by laughter from some and shouts of approval from others.

    Beautifully timeless.

    I never had it like this where I grew up. But I send my kids here because the fact is you go to one of the best schools in the country: Rushmore. Now, for some of you it doesn't matter. You were born rich and you're going to stay rich. But here's my advice to the rest of you: Take dead aim on the rich boys. Get them in the crosshairs and take them down. Just remember, they can buy anything but they can't buy backbone. Don't let them forget it. Thank you.Herman Blume - Rushmore

    The original Live Aid. One of my personal favorite moments was Phil Collins performing a solo on the piano of "In the Air Tonight." That performance still sticks in my mind till today, 22 years later.

    Great question dude.

    My number one is probably the whistle in "Paradise City." Never fails to get me going. That's some good ****ty rock.

    I dig when Bob Dylan cracks up a bunch while singing "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35"...and the crowd is hooting and hollering along. Don't really like the song, just cool to hear Dylan laughing.

    I also like some of the comments from Nirvana's Unplugged album: "What's he tuning, a harp?" or "Cover your hair in your eyes." I think that album is the height of Grunge.

    Man, there has to be a bunch more. Again, good question.

    Thanks for making my day with this statement. You summed it up perfectly. "Good ****ty rock"... I love it.

    I'm trying to think of an example, but I also love it when a band purposely leaves a missed note alone. For some reason I'm drawn to that bit of imperfection...

    Hearing the Ramones count off 32 straight songs with 1,2,3,4 during a blistering, breakneck set gets my blood pumping. Something about Loco Live makes me drive my car a little faster. It just wouldn't be the same without that constant lock-step count off...

    My favorite live moment of all time was in 1994 at the u2 concert in yankee stadium. The band used the sound of an approaching helicopter as an intro to where the streets have no name. It was so amazing that i still get goose bumps just thinking about that song.

    Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah from Disney's "Song of the South". No ****.


    You can't possibly tell me that when you feel like whistling cause it's just busting out of you, that you whistle some of the dreck mentioned above. I refuse to believe it.

    Roger Daltrey's scream after the synthesizer solo followed by Keith Moon's drum break on "won't get fooled again". I defy anyone here to tell me that they don't always crank the volume up on the synth solo in anticipation of the song's finish. :D

    Oh, also Bonzo and Jimmy Page's solos on "whole lotta love"

    The first time I heard "Hotel California" from Hell Freezes Over, about 6 minutes and 24 seconds into it, with the two acoustic guitars blending magic, harmony, and perfection right into my soul.

    Over a decade later, I still love how that song ends.

    One of my favorite riffs is during the line"....and ribbons of euphoria" in Hendrix's Bold as Love. Matches the cadence of the words perfectly.

    Okay, I do know that this is a "Greatest Moments in Recorded Music" thread but it got me thinking of the two best live concerts I ever attended. They were Yes opening for Emerson, Lake, & Palmer and Stevie Wonder opening for the Rolling Stones and then appearing together for a 45 minute encore', both were at the Philadelphia Spectrum which is a ****hole but on those nights it was glorious.
