It’s really strange but a lot of my all time favorite songs are totally over-length.
A brief list:
- Bruce Springsteen - Jungleland (9:33)
- Pink Floyd - Time (7:01)
- Pink Floyd - Dogs (17:04 !)
- Boris - Naki Kyoku (12:13)
- BOaT - Tuesday (9:41)
How come a lot of really good songs have an epic length?
Is it probably the reason why they are so extremely good?
/edit: I also believe they are the reason for lonely drinking nights in front of the computer. You listen to a couple of these songs and bam, two hours passed. They also make you feel bad because they are so perfect.
BOaT - The Word In The Season
BOaT - KILL/KILL (I WANNA QUILL YOU, WHAT DO YOU WANT?)
I was totally unaware a video for that song existed. Now I’m even more in love with this band.
Holy shit. This is only the third picture of one of my favorite bands I have ever seen. Their stuff is unbelievably hard to find.
I came across this by accident. I’m drunk with joy.
BOaT - Tuesday
You know, I could sometimes upload tracks of different BOaT albums, they’re really cool, actually. But Roro is just so fucking mindblowingly good. I’m not getting tired of saying this over and over again. It’s one of the absolut best records I have ever heard. I wish amazon.jp or some other shop would ship that shit to Germany. I’d be willing to pay the goddamn ¥15000 for a used copy. Fucking fuck. Somebody put up some lyrics or something.
I’ll probably turn this into a Roro appreciation blog. Get it. Understand.
On BOaT’s Roro. Sometimes it’s easier when other people express what you think.
BOaT - Roots of Summer
I need a damn copy of the Roro album. In my hands. But it’s fucking impossible to find. The only place I could find it is Amazon.co.jp, but you gotta pay several thousand yen for a used copy. And they won’t even ship to Europe. This makes me tremendously sad.
Here, have a gay picture of one of my favorite bands.
BOaT - Tuesday
I HATE downsizing mp3s but there’s no other way I can upload this 10 minute masterpiece. I absolutely adore this band. You guys should all listen to BOaT, seriously. RORO's such an album. It's definitely one of the best records I have ever listened to. Man.
tuffghost replied to your post: I just listened to that BOaT album you posted. Wonderful stuff! Akiramujina is amazing. Since you liked that, I know a band that’s pretty similar to that song that you might be interested in. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MhRj_48-7w ??
Ive heard of Boris but haven’t given them a listen before. That’ll have to change soon then. Glad to hear you like The Sugarplastic. Its just a little taste of some 90s Los Angeles pop that never grows old for me. Do you have any other stuff by BOat?
Boris is a very, very special band, playing all kinds of music like drone, rock n roll, noise, ambient electronica shit and stuff, new album is even kinda poppy with weird beats and all. You should really give them a try. I do have plenty of BOaT albums. RoRo, though, is by far their best in my opinion, and does have its very own and unique style which is different to the other albums. I can provide you with the oher records but you may find a squeaky J-Pop/Rock song here and there, I’m not sure if that’s your thing. Not mine either, but some of it is simply quality.
Sad thing is, you just don’t fucking find any information on these guys online if you don’t understand Japanese. It’s like they are freaking ghosts.
