  • Yeah!

    9 déc. 2009, 21h09m par hipoceronte

    Yeah! es el mantra del rock, la palabra que nace desde las profundidades de un rockero para expresar el espíritu de esta música.

    En nuestro afán robgordoniano de hacer listas, hemos elegido los que son, para nosotros, los mejores Yeahs! del rock. En el proceso se aceptaron yeahs, oh yeahs, yeaiii, yeah yeah yeah yeah… pero no se aceptaron woooooaaaa, aaaahh, babyyyy, uuuuuhhhh, youuu, yaaaaa y otros derivados. De todas formas algunos yeah pudieron haber quedado fuera de esta lista por lo que los invitamos a opinar y sumar más yeaaaaahs.
    Aquí van:


    15 - Black Dog - Led Zepelin
    Robert Plant hizo toda clase de gritos rockeros, por lo que obviamente no podía faltar por ahí un “oh yeah”. Del 4º album del año 1971. Minuto 0:55, entre otros.

    14 - Song 2 - Blur
    Para finalizar esta potente canción, Blur repite insistentemente yeah yeah!, para luego terminar con un agotado “ooh yeah”. Del disco homónimo del año 1997. Minuto 1:45 en adelante

    13 - Vertigo - U2
  • TW Classic festival in Werchter, Belgium

    9 jui. 2007, 8h08m par EdwardH

    Last saturday I visited the first half of the TW Classic festival in Werchter, Belgium. As a big fan of Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark I wanted to see them playing at this festival. My wife wanted to see P!nk, so she joined me on this trip.

    The complete lineup was:

    13:00-13:50 Tom Helsen
    14:20-15:10 Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark
    15:45-16:45 P!nk
    17:35-18:50 Anouk
    19:40-21:10 John Fogerty
    22:00-00:00 Elton John

    We arrived around noon at the festival field and it was already very crowded. I read today at a Belgian news site that around 37.000 people attended! The weather was perfect, a lot of sunshine and no rain at all.

    The first act was Belgian singer Tom Helsen. It was the first time I heard his music and I was pleasantly surprised. The songs he played were:

    Slow Me
    Rocket
    Yeah Yeah
    Out of Something
    Slowly
    Easy
    Don't Let Them Get You Down
    When Marvin Calls
    Goodbye
    Change Yourself
    Sun In Her Eyes
    More Than Gold

    Highlights for me were When Marvin Calls and Change Yourself.
