THE San Francisco Giants Blog

Sunday!

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on October 15, 2017

Yesterday was fun. I learned a lot about cereal and the Cardinal waxed the Ducks. Today is NFL but the NLCS is on at the right time so I’ll probably catch that, too.

And now for your listening pleasure, prepare to have your minds blown as I did on that fateful trip to Togo’s back in 1987. Maybe the best song of all time. If you had to pick one, what would yours be? Enjoy the show tonight, Loo…..

    Ha, Charlie Scott, saw him play vs. Warriors when he was new to NBA. Was he first black player at NC?

    Man, so much stuff I hear about these days reminds me of ’60s–national security love it or leave it human/civil rights… Janis btw was awesome in SF days. always thought Down On Me was best cut.

    Best song ever? Tower of Power What is Hip, Zappa’s Pojama People, Wilson Pickett She’s Looking Good, Hendrix Red House Santana Oye Como Va. Just drifted away from rock bands by 70s/80s.

    • Flavor said, on October 15, 2017 at 9:12 am

      Nice but you were only supposed to choose 1! It’s hard to do, some of you music elitists will struggle with this right? Haha

  2. xoot said, on October 15, 2017 at 9:15 am

    best song ever to get vast radio play? no contest. Hendrix, All Along the Watchtower.

  3. willedav said, on October 15, 2017 at 9:18 am

    I listen to music on youtube a lot. Zappa remixed lot of his old stuff so it sounds different than the original vinyl versions. He always had issues with record companies (and some fellow musicians) so not surprising I guess.

    In case of Hendrix, a gal and her family have control over his recorded music, and it is NOT available on y/t. I think you have to subscribe to their site or something. Unfortunately I can’t check out the ending of Castles Made of Sand as guitar parts go back and forth anymore.

    On a company visit to Seattle we went to the Chihully museum and right near that is Hendrix Theatre, which I really would have liked to check out.

    • xoot said, on October 15, 2017 at 9:27 am

      for some reason all of Electric Ladyland is on YT.,I believe. I’ve had Amazon Prime for a while, and I grabbed maybe a dozen Hendrix albums without further cost. Generally pretty good blues and jazz selection, too (just yesterday I added Coltrane’s Ballads to my library because I happened to feel like hearing it). I have some gripes with Amazon, I guess, but still . . . .

    Told this story before, but in 1987–my last year as an undergrad at SDSU, I went with friends to see The Cult at the Open Air Theatre—a great venue on campus (still there to this day—but with a corporate name of course) with about 3,000 seats. The opening band was a group none of us had heard of called Guns n Roses. I thought their songs sounded good and they put on a good show. I was so impressed, I bought Appetite on cassette a couple of days later and was blown away. Not long after that, Sweet Child took off on MTV and they were on their way. “Nightrain” was the song at the concert that grabbed me instantly and it is still my favorite G n R song to this day. They played it when we saw them in NY last year, which I obviously loved.

    One single greatest song ever is damn tough, but just to play along and follow the rules, I will go with
    “Back in Black” by AC/DC.

    Fun Fact: Also saw an up and coming Madonna at the Open Air Theatre (OAT) at SDSU with another no name band opening for her—The Beastie Boys!

    • wilcojoe said, on October 15, 2017 at 10:12 am

      Cool story! So what’s the rules? Favorite song of all time? Favorite rock song of all time? Favorite song that you always have to turn up when it comes on the radio? There are so many ways I could break this down and I still don’t think I could give an answer.

      • Flavor said, on October 15, 2017 at 10:39 am

        best/favorite song of all time

    • Flavor said, on October 15, 2017 at 10:40 am

      can’t argue with Back in Black

  5. willedav said, on October 15, 2017 at 10:09 am

    The screen pass is still an awesome play as Skins get 23 yrds on last one. Jesus Skins score TD in 5 minutes. Like him or not, Cousins is gonna make even more $$$ from someone.

    What Is Hip is what I answered at a company meeting where they asked us this many years ago–great tune, horns and rhythm section, local guys, message. Still #1 to me.

  6. willedav said, on October 15, 2017 at 10:11 am

    See what slop throwing Hill has. If anything can bring down Dodgers I would say SPs not named Opie.

    Those TV spots with Josh Norman and Dez Bryant (snail lol) are pretty funny as they deny all the mean stuff they are putting out there.

  7. xoot said, on October 15, 2017 at 11:06 am

    on Snarkk’s comment, last thread, about North Carolina getting no penalty for basketball grade fraud–I saw one blurb that said NCAA decided it could not punish the univ because the fraudulent no-show classes were open to all students, not just players. wtf?

    • sandog said, on October 15, 2017 at 11:13 am

      The NCAA is a total joke. Carolina should have never been in the tournament and now they get to hoist another banner—-total BS and Snarkk is dead right on his take that some other school would have been slammed if they did the same thing. We all love March Madness and the overdone Buzzer Beaters!!, but pull back the covers and NCAA sports are slimy as hell.

  8. theroooster said, on October 15, 2017 at 11:19 am

    “Back in Black” a good song, but AC/DC has a lot of songs I like better. “Whole Lotta Rosie”, “Girls Got Rhythm”, “Kicked in the Teeth”, “Problem Child”, just to name a few. But then, I always thought Bon Scott blew doors on Brian Johnson. Brian Johnson songs, “Have a Drink on Me”, “Let Me Put My Love Into You” his two best. Have seen AC/DC four times in concert through the years. Hard to believe those guys still rockin’ it.

    Best/favorite song ever? That’s damn near impossible for me. My youngest has asked me that more than once, I give her a different answer every time.

  9. unca_chuck said, on October 15, 2017 at 11:24 am

    Way too many songs to even list. Baby’s on Fire by Brian Eno and Robert Fripp has one of the greatest guitar solos around. As does P-Funk’s Eddie Hazel on Maggot Brain.

    Spotify must have reached an agreement with Neil Young because what used to be no Neil now has just about everything.

  10. unca_chuck said, on October 15, 2017 at 11:25 am

    Ride On by AC/DC. Autobiographical as hell.

    • theroooster said, on October 15, 2017 at 11:30 am

      Freakin’ Love that song. Can’t believe I missed putting that in my list above, but then again, I can, they have so many good one’s. “Squealer” another…

  11. willedav said, on October 15, 2017 at 11:25 am

    The running back goes for 40 yrds as announcers mention Niners miss most tackles in the league, and earlier they mentioned drop passes and penalties too.

    I’ll give them props for doing what Giants refuse to do, which is to make tough decision on vet guy who isn’t what he was like Bowman.

        Yes it is. I play it extra loud every year in your honor when the Dodgers get eliminated.

    Hella drive by the kid and got it in the end zone.

  15. snarkk said, on October 15, 2017 at 11:41 am

    I’m gonna go totally off the road here.
    Greatest break up song of all time, this version the greatest by which all others measured, done by the greatest singer of all time.
    One For My Baby – Sinatra.
    From arguably his greatest album, “Only the Lonely”, 1958…

  16. sandog said, on October 15, 2017 at 11:51 am

    @ Rooster, agree with a lot of your AC/DC take. If it was personal favorite song, Have a Drink on Me would be up there for me. Actually agree the body of work with Bon is better, but man some of those tracks on Back in Black are great—–and I think possibly written by Bon. Favorite Bon songs include Touch Too Much, Jailbreak, and Sin City.

    A few weeks ago, I was sitting in the field level at the SDSU/Stanford game. The SDSU cheerleaders were right in front of us and at one point they did a cheer routine to Back in Black that went over damn well with me and my fellow Baby Boomers in the stands.
    I think it’s possible that experience may have influenced my vote in this poll.

    • theroooster said, on October 15, 2017 at 12:15 pm

      Back in Black a damned good song, pretty sure hearing it 2 million times on the radio might have diminished it’s greatness for me though.

  19. theroooster said, on October 15, 2017 at 12:12 pm

    Aaron Rodgers broken collarbone.

    Maybe the worst, most inexplicable replay call in NFL history just happened in Jets-Patriots, costing Jets a TD down 24-14 in the 4th quarter.

  24. unca_chuck said, on October 15, 2017 at 12:50 pm

    No shit. Horrible call. It’s shit like that that makes one think the fix is in.

  25. alleykat69 said, on October 15, 2017 at 1:09 pm

    Oh man I played a superb classic at my local watering hole the other day,got a glaring look from the bartender though she loved the song it’s just way to long!
    Any way it’s Chambers Brothers “Time ” fantastic psychedelic song from 69

  26. alleykat69 said, on October 15, 2017 at 1:14 pm

    Fuck yeah CJ Betheard has finally Wally Pipped Brian POS Hoyer should of been a few games ago! Nice TD throw to still give them a chance.,

  27. zumiee said, on October 15, 2017 at 1:17 pm

    Impossible for me to pick a greatest song. Too many variables involved.
    I’m still heartbroken from Ken Burns’ Vietnam War documentary series. Choosing to end the series with Simon and Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water” was an inspired choice. At that moment, there’s no greater song.

  28. zumiee said, on October 15, 2017 at 1:56 pm

    I’ve seen a lot of opening acts over the years that were good, but didn’t go on to big things.
    An exception was seeing an unknown Nirvana opening for Sonic Youth at the Warfield. I liked Nirvana’s performance, but no one on the planet would have predicted that in a couple of years they’d be one of the biggest bands in the world.
    After Cobain’s death, no one on the planet would have predicted the drummer would front a band that would be hugely popular, the Foo Fighters.

  29. Flavor said, on October 15, 2017 at 2:49 pm

    Zumiee how bout this: if u only had one song left to listen to B4 u died, what would it be?

    • zumiee said, on October 15, 2017 at 3:12 pm

      Well, in that scenario I couldn’t go wrong with The Beach Boys’ “The Warmth of the Sun.”

      • Flavor said, on October 15, 2017 at 3:59 pm

        interesting. This wouldn’t be the one I would pick. But that’s what makes music rad, right?

    • theroooster said, on October 15, 2017 at 4:01 pm

      Last song before checking out?

      “And I am not frightened of dying
      Any time will do, I don’t mind
      Why should I be frightened of dying?
      There’s no reason for it, you’ve gotta go sometime
      If you can hear this whispering you are dying”

      Clare Torry’s insane vocals sending me on my way…

      • theroooster said, on October 15, 2017 at 4:07 pm

        “I went in, put the headphones on, and started going ‘Ooh-aah, baby, baby – yeah, yeah, yeah.’ They said, ‘No, no — we don’t want that. If we wanted that we’d have got Doris Troy.’ They said, ‘Try some longer notes’, so I started doing that a bit. And all this time, I was getting more familiar with the backing track. […] That was when I thought, ‘Maybe I should just pretend I’m an instrument.’ So I said, ‘Start the track again.’ One of my most enduring memories is that there was a lovely can [i.e headphone] balance. Alan Parsons got a lovely sound on my voice: echoey, but not too echoey. When I closed my eyes — which I always did — it was just all-enveloping; a lovely vocal sound, which for a singer, is always inspirational”
        -Clare Torry

      • zumiee said, on October 15, 2017 at 5:07 pm

        That whole album is a great seamless piece of work. A kind of rock symphony in the best sense of that phrase.

  30. zumiee said, on October 15, 2017 at 5:13 pm

    I never got into AC/DC. A lot of hard rock bands out of the ’70s just weren’t my thing. I wasn’t part of my high school’s party/drinking scene. I was hanging out with nerds that listened to Neil Young and David Bowie.

  31. Flavor said, on October 15, 2017 at 5:13 pm

    if I only had one song left to listen to I think it would be Ramble On by Led Zeppelin. I mean, if I had to listen to one about bailing. That’s a fucking fabulous song any time…..”it’s time for me to go, an Autumn moon lights my way….” great tune.

    • zumiee said, on October 15, 2017 at 5:19 pm

      Led Zep definitely lives up to the legend. The band was only undone by tragedy. The death of their drummer, and the death of one of Robert Plant’s children in a drowning accident.

  32. zumiee said, on October 15, 2017 at 5:27 pm

    The bro-mance, Bryant and Rizzo, needs to start hitting.

  33. unca_chuck said, on October 15, 2017 at 5:52 pm

    The End by the Doors. Prolly the best end song out there.

    Zep? Overrrated. They stole so many songs before getting called out for doing it to Holwin’ Wolf for Lemon Song/Killing Floor. Maybe not overrated, but I had friends who listened to them too much and I couldn’t stand it. Like they invented the blues when actually they were ripping off the guys they were supposedly paying homage to. My sister saw them on their first tour open for Moby Grape. $2.00 at the door.

    I kinda regret not going to the Day on the Green in 1977 when they played their last bay area shows.

  34. theroooster said, on October 15, 2017 at 6:00 pm

    Overrated? These guys?

    There are some great Tom Petty concerts on YouTube. A great one is called “On the Highway” or something like that. It’s fun watching Mike Campbell get to extend out in concert.

    • unca_chuck said, on October 15, 2017 at 6:40 pm

      Just saw him (Tom Petty) in Napa, and Mike Campbell was great.

      • zumiee said, on October 15, 2017 at 6:48 pm

        I never saw him in concert. I kept missing for various reasons.

      • unca_chuck said, on October 16, 2017 at 8:43 am

        Yeah, the fact it took me this long to see Petty was the same deal. just never seemed to work out. Glad we got to see him even though it was way past the glory days. The band was still fricking great.

  43. unca_chuck said, on October 15, 2017 at 6:39 pm

    Elitism? Naah. Zeppelin was just a bunch of white guys ripping off American bluesmen. At least Clapton had the wherewithal to credit the guys he was taking from. Bob Marley, JJ Cale, Robert Johnson . . .

    • zumiee said, on October 15, 2017 at 6:41 pm

      They have great songs that are non-blues, such as “Dancing Days” and “Kazmir.”

    Bryant SUCKS right now.

  45. zumiee said, on October 15, 2017 at 6:43 pm

    No nibble from Morrow. Right at the Cubs like a knife through butter.

  46. zumiee said, on October 15, 2017 at 6:47 pm

    Morrow, drafted right before Timmy, was a bust for so many years.

    • Flavor said, on October 15, 2017 at 6:50 pm

      not a bust, he was hurt repeatedly. I’m surprised he ever got healthy. He used to be filthy when he was younger. Went to Cal.

      • zumiee said, on October 15, 2017 at 6:53 pm

        Ironic that he’s in the majors right now and Timmy is gone.

      • zumiee said, on October 15, 2017 at 6:54 pm

        Timmy has three rings, but Morrow could end up with one or more.

  47. willedav said, on October 15, 2017 at 6:57 pm

    still not a bad day to be Chiefs fan. Raiders lost 4th in a row at home to the Chargers (ouch) with Carr and Denver is down 17-3 at half to Eli and Giants. The QB Semien just threw a terrible pick 6 with less than a minute to go in half and now Osweiler is QB.
    Chiefs walk into Oaktown and win Thursday that should be nail in Raiders coffin.

  48. zumiee said, on October 15, 2017 at 7:21 pm

      always thought Cream was much more fun and accomplished group. Bruce singing Born Under a Bad Sign was good version too, nothing fancy or wild. For an overplayed hit, Sunshine of Your Love was great tune. Loved Tales of Brave Ulysses too.

      • sandog said, on October 15, 2017 at 7:55 pm

        My older siblings had a few records I used to listen to when I was just little guy—like 6 or 7. One of my favorites was Fresh Cream. Loved the rock songs, not so much on the blues songs. I listened to it from start to finish about a year ago and I still feel the same way 45 years later.

    Anything Led Zeppelin, but I’ll play by the rules and go with the last cut on Little Feat’s “Feats Don’t Fail Me Now” album. By the by, this is Jimmy Page’s favorite band:

    Medley: Cold Cold Cold/Tripe Face Boogie”

    • blade3colorado said, on October 15, 2017 at 8:20 pm

      AK, I had to ask myself which songs I played continuously and/or concurrent with a “high” (natural or otherwise). Phil Collins, LedZepp, Doors (LA Woman), and Little Feat came to mind.

  60. zumiee said, on October 15, 2017 at 8:06 pm

    The Dodgers built the perfect team for the juiced ball. Power-hitting lineup, and power-pitching bullpen. Their bullpen is throwing smoke.

  61. zumiee said, on October 15, 2017 at 8:09 pm

    The Cubs’ ABs vs. Janssen were hilarious. They were swinging at pitches a foot above the strikezone. No chance. None.

    Read that Yanks DH guys are 0-27 in post season with ton of Ks. Holliday and his $13 mil salary had a terrible year and is one of them. Supposedly they like the Bird kid at 1b, but he only hit .190 during the season. Possible landing spot for Belt, who could DH or play D for them? Thought Evans could have looked into this seriously way before Belt got beaned, even if it took SF covering $$$.

  67. Macdog said, on October 15, 2017 at 8:55 pm

    Unca, also disagree with Zeppelin being overrated, but I do have a CD called “Led Astray” that has 16 songs, from Willie Dixon and Sonny Boy Williamson to Joan Baez, from which Zepp liberally borrowed — and yes, outright stole — some of their musical ideas.

    Used to play it on my cassette in the car when I’d drive down into LA over the Grapevine. Blast it on max volume as soon as I’d hit Valencia early evening, and the car lights both directions welcome you into the City of Angels. Also, “Cars Hiss by My Window” on that LA Woman album is groovy — “A cold girl will kill you in a darkened room”, one of my favorite lines in rock. Led Zep was never a great concert live band, they made up for it in the studio. Baba O’Reilly and Behind Blue Eyes are my Who favs, but most of their inventory I like anyway. If I had a choice of live performance in a club of The Who, Zep, Stones, or Beatles, it’s The Who, easily. Add The Clash, and it gets problematic…

      Great choice. I would never argue with anything by the Doors or Zeppelin.
      Guilty pleasure is Hotel California…

        Karaoke of course is popular “over here” and sometimes I must, despite protestations, accompany students for birthday parties or whatever at karaoke. I have a one-hour rule, then I’m gone. But when pressed to “join in the performance”, I always sing Hotel California, mostly because they all know that one and they sing along too, to the words they understand, anyway…. Thankfully that one supplanted Country Road, which was always the fav request in China….

        There’s no reason why “Hotel California” should be a guilty pleasure, it’s a great song.

        For some reason, I never tire of it…

        Joe Walsh is great.

      Agree about The Who live, saw them 3 times, all rockin’ great shows. Best shows I ever saw: Talking Heads.

    Have any of you guys seen this? :

    At @ the 2:25 mark, it really takes quite a turn. Then at the 5:15 mark, look out…
    Pretty damn cool.

    If a Time Machine existed, I’d dial back to summer 1966 and see the Doors at the Whisky A Go Go on Sunset. They were the house band that Summer. Of course, I’d be about 9 years old. Damn, that must have been a time…

      thx Snarkk, very cool. that first LP hit I was in HS and they just exploded so many good songs all very different. Love me 2 times end of the night crystal ship and more to come. Road House Blues 20th Century Fox

      My sister lived outside Paris for a few years and she said Pere Lachaise cemetery was always a mess because of all the Morrison fans who went there.

        Yeah, when I was in Paris, I made the pilgrimage and paid homage. A bit of a messy grave, but it seemed to fit…

    Did any of you see this SNL performance some months back? Sturgill’s KY accent sort of mushes the lyrics, but Iraq and Iran and North Korea appear in the first verse. Country music at its best.

    • snarkk said, on October 15, 2017 at 10:15 pm

      Friggin’ Awesome.
      First time I’ve seen this dude.
      Pulled the lyrics off of Google. Good stuff, right on the nose.
      Kind of George Thorogood meets the Blues Brothers meets somebody Country meets Buffalo Springfield…

      • xoot said, on October 15, 2017 at 10:16 pm

        The song is addressed to his new born son. The basic lyrics:

        I done Syria, Afganistan, Iraq and Iran
        North Korea tell me where does it end
        Well the bodies keep piling up with every day
        How many more of em they gonna send
        Well they send their sons and daughters off to die for some war
        To control the heroine
        Well son I hope you don’t grow up
        Believing that you’ve got to be a puppet to be a man
        Well they cut off your hair and put a badge on your arm
        Strip you of your identity
        Tell you to keep your mouth shut boy and get in the line
        Meet your maker over seas

    Crazy song. Has a One Bourbon, One Scotch, and One Beer vibe to it. Seeing John Lee Hooker at the Pioneer in Woodside was a thrill, speaking of The House Rent Blues. This song reminds me of Last Kiss in that it is real upbeat for the dark lyrics. Never heard of this guy.

    As far as Zep goes, I just think they got too full of themselves. Song Remains the Same was a study in excess. The movie was one loooong jerk-off to themselves and how awesome they were. The only albums i can listen to are Physical Graffiti and Presence. All the rest have been played to death. Like the Beatles, they get way too much credit for the things they did.

    One thing I will say, of all those hard rock bands that I saw live, AC/DC (Bon Scott era) never disappointed. The Who were ALWAYS on. Aerosmith was awful. They were so fucked up they couldn’t remember the lyrics to Train Kept a Rollin’, and the crowd was gone by the time they finished their set. We were laughing at them.

    The Stones made the crowd wait 3 hours before they came out, and they were flat and shitty. Someone mentioned Talking Heads, and their shows were flat incredible. As was King Crimson.

    I saw Buddy Guy in a blues club in Houston about 16-17 years ago. Outfriggin’ standing. Seriously awesome artist, he was no spring chicken even then, and his backup band was tight and on fire…
