Clasher, do you like "Magic Bus" better by the Who or by the artist that did a version before them?


What, "Bo Diddley" by Bo Diddley? I dunno. I love 'em both. Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away" and U2's "Desire" are groovy, too.

But the Live at Leeds version of "Magic Bus" kicks the crap out of all of 'em.


No, I'm talking about the first version of "Magic Bus" by The Pudding. Townshend wrote it for them and they did it a year before the Who.

I have the MP3. I don't see it on YouTube.

Are you guys familiar with this?

In 1967 the Beach Boys released one of their classic hits with a song called "Darlin." The melody for that song was written several years earlier and was used on another record with different lyrics. The artist's name was Sharon Marie and the title of the song was "Thinkin' 'Bout You Baby." It was issued on Capitol Records in 1964. The song was written by Brian Wilson and Mike Love and the record was produced and arranged by Brian Wilson.

Adam and the Ants turned "Magic Bus" into "Antmusic."

I have the MP3. I don't see it on YouTube.


Oh, wow. No, I've never heard it before. There's a few other tunes Townshend wrote for other artists in the sixties. That reminds me, I've never listened to Billy Fury's "Long Live Rock", either. Off to Youtube!

*listens*

Ick. The Who's version wins that battle. Moon's drums are fantastic on both, though.

I'm starting to like you Clasher !!!

See if you like this one:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3k5KzgBoIBM

It's probably even on last.fm.


I'm not sure about that one. Reminds me of Frank Zappa's doo-wop pastiches. I think the singer shooting for the ceiling may be a bit flat here and there.

EDIT: Hooray for Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dc2pTC0D0j0

Shut the f&&* up Bruce. Hendrix is the greatest rock guitarist there is. Everyone in my school knows that.

I think your lists suck. Truth hurts. James Brown and the Supremes are not rock artists.

My friends laugh with me too.

Ten artists were inducted into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame in its inaugural year. James Brown was one of them. The Supremes followed two years later.

I'm rubber, you're glue. Whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you.
