What's so great about the Grateful Dead?
    #2972744 - 08/07/04 01:40 AM (18 years, 4 months ago)

I listened to a couple of songs by them, and seriously I don't like it. I don't say I hate it, I just don't like it.

Oh well I guess it takes all kinds of people to make a world.

I'm drifting away from the shore
I will be lost in the dream when the dark days come
But I will make the time run backwards and
I'll make the stars shine again

Not again!

Yes, lets just say it takes all sorts, and many different frames of mind, and types of brain receptors/receptor openers. :smile:

well let me put it this way

There's a band out on the highway, They're high steppin' into town
It's a rainbow full of sound, It's fireworks, calliopes and clowns
Everybody dancin' C'mon children, C'mon children, Come on clap your hands.

Dude if I have to explain it you wouldn't understand.

You don't just listen to a few songs to dig them either, you need to try a live recording and give it a few listens. I've never liked any of my favorite CD's the first time I spun them, more like the 3rd or 4th when I started to hear all that was going on in them.

Crazy rooster crowin' midnight.
Balls of lightning roll along.
Old men sing about their dreams.
Women laugh and children scream,
And the band keeps playin' on.

I've had the exact same experience with many of my fav's. Sometimes it takes a little while to warm up to new music.

Snape, you should give them more of a chance. Their music is really varied. If Tons of Steel was the only dead song I ever heard, I wouldn't like them either.

What about the band Low, Dead reminded me of Low if I remember rightly. Who likes 'em?

Who are they? What are they like?

The Dead are improvisational rock n roll with a hefty dose of blues and jazz.
