What Makes This Song Great Ep. 36 — YES


  • Douglas VanWieren

    To repeat what Perry said (on July 18, 2019), Sloan is my favourite band in Canada (I wonder if we agree on the best Canadian band, but I doubt it). You really should check them out. Thanks for your “Everything Music” channel. Got me to pick up a guitar for the first time in over 20 years, and now I’m properly trying to teach myself how to play.

    There are not as many players today…I think with no click they would be exposed

    Hola. Check from 7:48 to 7:53. Another scary silent moment. When you says “here is the left part”. Cheers!!

  • Perry

    I absolutely love your “Everything Music” channel. I’ve told many friends about you and this wonderful channel. Man oh man… just epic. Thank you. Hey, I hope you’re a fan of Sloan, my 2nd favorite rock band out of Canada. They are excellent and highly under rated. Please, please cover, “If it feels good do it” on an episode of " What makes this song great?" Thanks and cheers!!

    Thanx for the breakdown. I’m 65. Saw the original Fragile tour (Eagles was the “backup band”. One of the very best concerts in my life! One of my favorite bands. Keep up the splendid woek.

    Still have the vinyl’s in my studio shelves..loved Roger Deans cover art as well as the music.

    Just outstanding. I have loved this song for years, but hearing the separated parts together with the explanations makes it all fresh and new again. I “heard” all those things on some level of course, but only as a wonderful totality- this brings a whole new depth of appreciation for the musicians, their inspiration, and for the remarkable production and mixing involved to result in such a masterpiece. I was particularly struck by Rick’s singling out the delay, and the mellotron- as soon as I heard that part, mellotron and vocal, I thought “Beatles!” and Rick said “Strawberry Fields!”. Exactly. Living is easy with eyes closed….

    This is one of the best music videos I have ever seen. I love this song and it was beautiful to see how they arranged this beautiful song.

    Can’t stand todays music. What a fantastic video to watch.

    Thanks, I love this song, “Fragile” has been one of my favorite inspiration since I was a kid! Great to hear those tracks in solo, reveals hard to hear details (hamonies). This said: I wonder where you get all those individual tracks? I found some “stems” from guitar-hero-like games but they rarely are real solo tracks, usualy all drum on one track, all guitars on another, etc. But your stuff sounds like your in contact with the master(s) of the (recording) universe! (Wich may be the case!)

    Thanks for your greeeeaaaat work.

    Saw the thumbnail for this in the “What makes this song great” playlist on YouTube but I couldn’t watch it. I’m glad I found it here!
