Top 2 from November 25, 2013

More Than a Feeling - Dondero High School A Capella Choir from Pop Concert 1996

One of the great love songs to music enthusiastically performed by eager teenagers. A faithful arrangement, relying on choral unisons perhaps a bit too much. (not performed a capella by the way). Scholz' guitar solo (well, solo duet really) is played with relish. I always like how the third of the three ascending notes leading into the break is delayed two beats to build the tension. Picks up the energy as the introduction promises.

To Go Home – M. Ward, from Post-War

“God, it's great to be alive, takes the skin right off my hide to think I'll have to give it all up someday”
The heartbeat beat and the Kieth Moon drumming makes it feel great to be alive.
