Re: The 2012 AMF All-Time Songs Poll: Results

I have to say that I'm baffled by the sudden emergence of "Nights in White Satin" and "Tears in Heaven". On the other hand, "The Girl from Ipanema"! Since I was the biggest reason behind the surprisingly high placement of “Nights in White Satin,” I felt compelled to explain. So much of loving music...

Re: AM Foreign World Cup: Round 2 - Southern America

Bracket 2.2.13 Winner: Melingo - Corazòn y Hueso Henri Salvador - Dans mon île Both beautiful songs, but “Melingo” keeps growing on me. I especially like the subtle way it builds in intensity throughout. Bracket 2.2.14 Susana Baca - Tu Mirada y Mi Voz Winner: Mercedes Sosa - Alfonsina y el mar Both ...

Re: Acclaimed Music & Best Ever Albums

Thanks for the comparision, Harold. Overall, I agree with Moonbeam that AM is much more reliable (which isn't surprising, given the amazing scope of AM, and the enormous amount of work that Henrik and others have put into it). However, I do like a lot of neo-prog acts, particularly Porcupine Tree, a...

Re: AM Foreign World Cup: Round 2 - Southern Africa

Bracket 2.1.13 Miriam Makeba & The Skylarks - Inkomo Zodwa Winner: Thomas Mapfumo - Haruna I think in every matchup this week I preferred the musical arrangement of one song and the vocals of the other. In this case, I’m voting for the wonderful vocals (and guitars) of Mapfumo over the distinctive f...

Re: AM Foreign World Cup: Round 2 - Western Europe

My second week of voting—and another week that makes me thankful I found AM… Bracket 2.4.9 Winner: Pass. Unfortunately, I received one of those “not available in your country” messages from YouTube when I tried listening to “Cherchez le garcon.” I did find a very good live version of the song, and i...

Re: AM Foreign World Cup: Round 2 - Southeast Asia

The praise of "Genjer Genjer" in the previous comments is deserved, and I thought it had to be one of Dengue Fever's most popular songs, but as far as I can see it's just a single B-side. If their other songs are even better that would be amazing. How about this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...

Re: AM Foreign World Cup: Round 2 - Southeast Asia

Hi, Stephan and everyone. I’m new to the forum, as well. Hopefully, it’s okay for me to participate. Since I’ve always loved World music, and genuinely enjoyed all eight of these entries, I think I’m in the right spot. With that said, my votes go to: Bracket 2.3.9 Winner: Kwan Jai & Kwan Jit Sripraj...

Re: Forum Poll: The AM Top Songs of All Time (2012 edition)

Great list jamiew! I look forward to exploring over the next few weeks. Thanks, Henry. My taste in music tends to be all over the map, so I didn't know how to compare favorite songs. I ended up just going with the songs that had the greatest emotional impact with me, or carried some of my best memo...
