What are the most amazing recorded moments in music ever? You know the ones... It doesn't need to be an entire album. It could just be a few seconds within a song. It doesn't need to be an artist with a huge history. Nor does it need to be a legend. Though it could be. It could be the way a snare was hit. It could be your favorite song that drove the best production possible. It could be live, it could be memorex. Analog or digital. A player's nuance or a players boldness. A wall of sound or a soft pad.
A few that come to mind are...
1. Eddie's solo in "Thriller."
2. The drums in Peter Gabriel's "Lay Your Hands On Me" before the last chorus.
3. The amazing drum fill by Stuart Copeland and the bass solo by Stanley Clark on Animal Logic's "Stone In My Shoe."
4. The entire song of Robbie Robertson's "Fallen Angel" but especially because of Manu.
5. Of course, the entire recording of "Where the Streets Have No Name."
6. The entire recorded orchestra on Joni Mitchell's "Both Sides Now" the orchestra sessions, arranged by VInce Mendoza.
7. Youssu N'dour's vocals on the end of "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel.
Those are just a few. I'm sure I can think of a few more.
What are your moments?
