message 1: by Spacepig (new)

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments No one had any objections to a second round from Alice Cooper, so, off we go.

I have no idea what was nominated last time, or what won, but I daresay I could make a fairly good guess at it. It would maybe be nice if this time round we could try and have some more obscure tracks, some album only tracks or something would be good.

Anyway, choice is all your's. Noms as ever close on Sunday at 10pm.

This weekend I have some ritual ambient doom supporting a violin playing black metal singer - this could be interesting :-)

Gordon (skiiltan) | 2940 comments Are there any Alice Cooper tracks on YouTube? I can only find live versions and covers.


message 3: by Lez (new)

Lez | 7490 comments I found ‘Alice Cooper Greatest Hits’ . There are 28 and the first four I looked at were videos.

Tim Franklin | 9068 comments Probably will score zero, but changing my nom as I've always loved this song; just a shame the clip cuts off without including the short 'street fight' which really is part of it.

Brass Neck | 3892 comments At the time it seemed preposterous that a TV/pop star with an objectionable persona could seek the highest office of the USA. 46 years later ........

Nice horn charts from Bob Ezrin as producer too.

Every single song I wanted to nom is either blocked or deleted. So let's have a new one instead:

Poison
Pretty Ballerina
Hey Stoopid
School's Out
Gutter Cat vs. The Jets
Elected
I'm Your Gun
Snakebite
Halo Of Flies
I’m Eighteen
Why Don't You Love Me
Paranormal

And no way am I ever going to believe that the Duke only knows one AC track.


message 17: by Tech XXIII (new)

Tech XXIII  | 6727 comments lucky duke, as I would say! :)


message 18: by Spacepig (new)

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments I am going to leave this one to Jemma to adjudicate on:

Sj's nom, is by The Spiders, not Alice Cooper. So Vincent was in The Spiders right enough, but Alice Cooper didn't exist at the time. That song was recorded in 1965, but Alice Cooper the band didn't exist until 1969, and he himself didn't take that name for himself until the early 70's.

In my book, that makes it illegible, but hey, who cares what I think :-)


message 19: by Jemma (new)

Jemma | 936 comments Hi Spacepig. We’ll keep it in as he was and still is Vincent Furnier - life’s too short to worry about legalities. Thanks Spacepig. 😊


message 20: by Spacepig (new)

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments No probs Jemma, thanks for that.

12 noms it is then, a few slightly more obscure, and a smattering of the bleedin' obvious. Four points apiece for this round.

Voting as ever closes at 10pm on Thursday.

You are right, of course Spacepig....i have 'heard' of other AC songs..but as odd as it might be...I've never been that much of a fan of his work..so never really paid much attention to the song titles..I can take or leave his music.

With your interest in psyche bands you ought to bend an ear to the first two (unsung by most) albums - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Easy-Action-... and https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B001F2RNV...

Spacepig Pig | 1473 comments And there we go then

Predictable enough winner in the end, probably for the second time, School's Out, this time nommed by the Duke. A point behind, with a song that wasn't even recorded the last time we done Alice, Paranormal from da Pig. And sneaking into third spot, Johnny's nom, Halo Of Flies.

Decent enough selection there, but there are plenty more that could have been used.

Jemma | 936 comments Thanks to everyone who gave AC some love for a second time, good list and well done the winners. Cheers Spacepig. 😎

Tech XXIII  | 6727 comments you're welcome, jemma, it was a real pressure! :)

weirdly, (oh shight, here he goes again!) when i was small and starting to get interested in records and music, i had a s***list of four artists of whom i vowed never to buy any of their records. they were;
alice cooper - never did
marc bolan - coupla singles
rod stewart - never did (it's been a lifelong aversion!)
and, epic fail, david bowie!

hey ho, carry on!

Are we allowed to ask what these people had done; did Rod steal your favourite toy? Was Alice too 'scary' (or at the time, drunk)? Did you think Marc Bolan sounded like a singing sheep? ;-)


message 44: by Tech XXIII (new)

Tech XXIII  | 6727 comments well, when i was a small boy, rod was already well into his seventies, so,no! the only fear i had of alice cooper was the fear of dropping into a tedium induced coma, so, no! thinking marc bolan was a singing sheep would have made him a little interesting, so, no! the answer is simple - i thought they were all shight!
at least dave bowie upped his game to make some 'no bad' records! :)

Hi Craig. Well ... you`ve got my admiration for nomming on all artists whether you like `em or not, can`t be bad, so we`ll overlook the ones you don`t like. ;O)
