The original album had two different cuts of "El Paso" (tracks 11 & 15), one with this verse and one without. Weird.

(I wonder if the tape that Walt finds has the short or the long version of "El Paso" on it? This is the best reference to that album I could find online, but it doesn't mention song lengths.)

u/ChairmanMeow23 · 45 pointsr/videos

For anyone interested, the song is El Paso by Marty Robbins. Here is a great album if you like these classic western tunes.

>Then remember that ever since “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” announced Red in 2012, the mission of the first single released ahead of any Taylor Swift album has been to disrupt and mislead: to disrupt whatever Swift doesn’t like about what’s been said about her since the previous album and to mislead the press and public that the album to come is a more radical departure than it will turn out to be. Of course Swift’s albums do differ from each other, as she develops as a writer and performer and adapts to changing styles. But ultimately they turn out to be collections of Taylor Swift songs, aka evocative details squeezed into catchy melodic cadences. The job of the lead single is to thrill or scare or outrage us by hinting that this time it’ll be something else.

This is probably the best write-up on the song I've seen so far. It celebrates what works about the song, acknowledges what really doesn't work about it without catastrophizing and then puts it all within the wider context of Taylor's career so far (and the pattern she has followed every release cycle). Give it a read if you can.

My dad didn't listen to much music, but he had a copy of Marty Robbin's Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs that I must have heard hundreds of times growing up. It was a very strange feeling hearing that song, which I very strongly associate with my dad, in a video game. The Master's Call is another awesome song from Robbins.

Bonus Fearless Platinum vinyl $15.00.

A whole bunch of records at Walmart are going on sale for $15. Amazon usually tries to price match. So if there's other artists you enjoy be on the look out!

u/YouVersusTheSea · 6 pointsr/TaylorSwift

The music attorney in me is very curious as to whether you realize that obtaining music via
>downloadble links

so that you
>could listen

to an album
>without buying it,

absent the rights holder's consent, is the same as stealing the album, and is most likely against the law to some degree, regardless of whichever country you are located in. Sorry, but I'm not going to help you accomplish that one. But hey, thanks for the job security!

That said, the Taylor Swift fan in me has a few additional responses to offer you:

  1. Have you had a chance to read the op ed she wrote for the Wall Street Journal last summer?

  2. Did you know you can purchase her previous four albums on Amazon for a combined cost of $33, which includes a new physical copy of each CD and an instantly downloadable MP3 version of each album? That's a pretty good deal, considering there are around 60 songs between those four albums, and iTunes charges $1.29/song. Here are the links for each one, for your convenience:
    LP 1: Self-Titled;
    LP 2: Fearless;
    LP 3: Speak Now;
    LP 4: Red

  3. If that's out of your budget right now or you don't want to invest before you know if you like her older material, you can go to Beats Music, sign up for the free 14 day trial and stream her entire back catalogue for free over the next two weeks. That should give you some time to save up to purchase the albums that you decide you enjoy.

    Hope that helps and hope you have a fantastic week! :)

It wouldn't surprise me tbh.

I'm actually planning on buying one of those.

u/theguyjb · 3 pointsr/funny

Fade to Bluegrass was pretty good, and it has the added bonus of being a real album.

Here is the Crooked Still CD for sale on Amazon if you're interested in getting the CD, jank. I own it and all of the music on the CD is very good! I'd never even heard of them until the 'gameplay' trailer! =)

u/Fairlight2cx · 2 pointsr/coversongs

This is really good. Bluegrass isn't my favourite genre, but when done well, and against other compositions like this, I find I sometimes really like/respect how it's done. This actually does an admirable job. About the only negative would be that there's no real break in it to emulate the change in dynamics from the original. And still works, so it's not really a negative. This may be one of the best covers I've heard, possibly because they're not even trying to emulate Gilmour's playing.

If you like this, you should love this album (note that you can get it at the cheaper prices used...that new price is was $14 when I got it):

Thankfully it doesn't appear there's an official vinyl release. However, there is an unofficial 12" of remixes from the Czech Republic.

Weirdly, Taylor Swift does appear to have vinyl albums.

This guy constantly posted random product from walmart. Buy from Amazon - Again this is not a deal.

u/I-Love-Money · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I always think about the Whose Line Is It Anyways Drinking Songs when I think of Irish music. Definitely my favorite.

This album would be pretty awesome to have.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Thanks for the contest. Eire.

u/hello-everything · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I'm absolutely dying to have My Head Is An Animal by Of Monsters & Men or Red by Taylor Swift on vinyl.

My favourite movie-linked song is Send Me on My Way in Matilda! One of my favourite songs of all-time anyway, and Matilda is such an awesome movie.

P.S. I haven't been to the cinema in ages! So excited for all the new movies coming out this summer.

u/mnorri · 1 pointr/todayilearned

The famous (within the bluegrass community anyway) Bluegrass band Hot Rize would alternate sets with their alter-egos Red Knuckles and the Trailblazers, a kitschy country band.

While Hot Rize would perform in the traditional suitcoat style that many Bluegrass bands would wear, Red Knuckles wore lots of fringe and bright sateen shirts - he even had fringe on the neck of his guitar. Red Knuckles would also rag on Hot Rize for playing that "itchy scratchy" music - which was what the audience came to see.

Red Knuckles was damn entertaining, with excellent musicianship, humor and a willingness to try genres and do covers of other bands, something that the purists would wail and gnash their teeth if Hot Rize tried. Red Knuckles actually did a fake commercial a'la late night television for an album of rock and roll standards in a traditional country style (Not Shania, more like old Johnny Cash or Merle Haggard). The song that comes to memory when I reminisce was "Hey Joe" done to an upbeat country standard.

Of course, if you find that interesting, I highly recommend Luther Wright and the Wrongs song-by-song cover of Pink Floyd's "the Wall" Album done in a country/bluegrass style.

u/ubermonkey · 1 pointr/houston

I was pretty bummed out about it.

What's weird is that Pink Floyd seem to be the progenitors of a whole new subgenre of covers: Covers of entire albums. I have three.

  • Rebuild the Wall, by Luther Wright and the Wrongs, which is an astonishingly good bluegrass rendition;

  • Dub Side of the Moon, a reggae/dub take on DSOTM. Fun bit: the repeated song starting "Money" is a bong bubbling instead of a cash register.

    plus the Lips one.

I think I read somewhere that Trent Reznor said Johnny's cover was better than the original. Quite a compliment I think! If you don't already know, you can find Cash's version of Hurt on "The Legend of Johnny Cash" compilation. It's a pretty solid intro to Cash for the new or casual fan. You'll probably recognize a few of the songs. Also, look for "American Recordings." A great CD produced by Rick Rubin.

Some links for you:
The original "Hurt" by NIN.
American Recordings.
The Legend of Johnny Cash.

Viva bacon!

Edit: I suck at formatting (and apparently punctuation).

u/turbo_dude · 1 pointr/television

Oliver Stone's movie "Natural Born Killers" has Mickey Knox (Woody Harrelson) switch the wording to "catch a redneck by his toe" and the sample of which can heard on one of the most underrated soundtrack albums of all time assembled by no less than Trent Reznor

u/B4MPER · 1 pointr/movies

You're all wrong. Natural Born Killers. Groundbreaking use of contemporary alternative rock and classic tunes. Produced by Trent Reznor.

u/kaj52213 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

The band perry! I want their new album
