    Songs That You Should Not Like, But Do

    I had a conversation in work today about songs that we like but we would not admit it to too many people so it gave me an idea for this thread.What songs do you listen too when only you would know.

    Songs that you should not like

    Here is the song as I remember it, in as close to the original Cockney pronunciation as I can get.

    In the Taower of London, large as loife,
    The ghaost of Anne Bolyn walks, I declare.
    Poor Anne Bolyn was once King 'Enery's woife,
    Before 'e 'ad the 'eadsman bob 'er 'air.
    Aow yes, 'e did it lorng lorng years agao.
    She still comes back at noight to tell 'im sao.

    Wiv 'er 'ead took'd underneaf 'er arm,
    She walks the Bloody Taower.
    Wiv 'er 'ead took'd underneaf 'er arm.
    At the midnoight 'aour.

    Alorng the drarfty corridors,
    For miles and miles she gaos.
    She orften catches caold, poor thing.
    It's caold there when it blaows.
    And it's orfly orkward for the Queen
    To 'ave to blaow 'er naose
    Wiv 'er 'ead took'd underneaf 'er arm

    Sometimes gay King 'Enery gives a spread
    For orl 'is pals and gals, a ghaostly crew.
    The 'eadsman carves the joint and cuts the bread,
    When in comes Anne Bolyn to queer the do.
    She 'aolds 'er 'ead up wiv a wild war whoop,
    And 'Enery says "Don't drop it in the soup !"

    Wiv 'er 'ead took'd underneaf 'er arm,
    She walks the Bloody Taower.
    Wiv 'er 'ead took'd underneaf er arm,
    At the midnoight 'aour.

    The guards think it's a football
    That she carries in.
    And when they see 'er come, they shaout
    "Is Army going to win ? "
    They think that it's Red Grynge [or any popular Army football player]
    Instead of poor old Anne Boleyn.

    Wiv 'er 'ead took'd underneaf 'er arm.

    Loads of stuff. I really liked the Chemical Brothers single 'Galvanise'.
    And some trance ravey stuff fascinates me.
    But most controversial stuff for a forum such as BuB... my all time favourite type of music is actually church choral music. Hymns and psalms etc.

    As a musician I can be quite cynical with music recordings. I tend to just track the chord sequences and melody in my mind and think, oh that's a cheap trick, the old G, Em, Am, D routine etc.
    But with church choral music I lose my cynicism and can be genuinely moved by a 'song' I've heard 300 times in the last 30 years.

    A mad thought just flitted through my brain. I was going to start a 'What's your top 10 hymns?' thread. But I've remembered where I am again now.

    Songs you should not like

    Well, NightStorm, I'd say that cynically is not the way to listen to music. Just noting the melody and chord changes may be too technical an approach. I am reminded of the time that I played a cassette of a Schuibert trio in E-flat for a friend of mine who is a violist and violinist and has long taught string playing. She ripped it up one side and down the other. The string writing is inept, awkward, and sometimes banal. As an expert, she noticed that. To me, as an educated listener, but no expert and unconcerned with technicalities of string playing, the piece was and is moving and beautiful. Schubert's technical ineptitude completely blinded her to the beauty and heart-wrenching emotional content of it. Perhaps he could , indeed, have expressed the same ideas better had he better understood string technique, but what he did express is deeply moving, even so.
