Here you may post about anything related to Rock Songs & Albums that doesn't fit in any of the existing threads. This would include, but isn't limited to, thoughts about rock song & album lists that don't have threads, or relevant lists that you want to make just for the fun of it, that you don't intend to go on the main site.

Every thread in this section that is stickied is the thread for an official DDD list, which is the primary purpose for stickies.

Makes sense to me. Plus it'll be good to have this thread.

I've always had a love for post-rock. And this song in particular is incredible.

Would somebody be interested in creating Greatest Posthumous Singles list? I have a pretty good idea what #1 will be. It seems like pretty common topic for discussion but I haven't seen any credible list yet.

I wouldn't want to take that on, because I have other lists keeping me occupied right now. If someone else did, I could provide some input.

I take it "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay" would be #1. "Me and Bobby McGee" and Biggie's "Hypnotize" would also be high. I believe Johnny Ace's "Pledging My Love" is posthumous, and if so it would be very high.

Maybe posthumous songs would be better than posthumous singles. I think such a list would make more sense if to be eligible, the song must not have been released in any commercial form prior to the artist's death, meaning, for example, that "A Change Is Gonna Come" by Sam Cooke wouldn't be eligible.

I can start working on this list since I don't really intend it to be on main site and I want to do it just for fun, but if somebody more knowledgeable would like to take it, I will step out. And posthumous songs is probably better idea, you are right, Brian.

Pink Floyd Will Release New Album, 'The Endless River,' In October

As the 20th anniversary of Pink Floyd's last studio album, 1994's "The Division Bell," approaches, the band will be releasing a brand new record titled "The Endless River," sometime in October. The news was first announced by Pink Floyd guitarist and vocalist David Gilmour's wife, Polly Samson, on Twitter.
Pink Floyd touring vocalist Durga McBroom-Hudson, who sang backup with the band throughout the 80s and 90s, was the next to confirm the album's existence, posting a photo from the recording sessions on her Facebook.

Samson's reveal that the songs initially began during the "Division Bell" sessions, and that the album will contain "all unreleased songs." "The recording did start during The Division Bell sessions (and yes, it was the side project originally titled "The Big Spliff" that Nick Mason spoke about). Which is why there are Richard Wright tracks on it. But David and Nick have gone in and done a lot more since then,"It was originally to be a completely instrumental recording, but I came in last December and sang on a few tracks. David then expanded on my backing vocals and has done a lead on at least one of them."

Someone (I think it was Skullkid?) did a "Greatest Posthumous Albums" list back on the old forum. I was compiling a really interesting trivia sub-list of artists that died under 8 months after their album was released as a sidebar. Don't think either made the jump to this forum even though both were more or less done.

"You Got It" should be higher. At a minimum, I don't see anyway it's below "You Know You're Right" or "True Love Ways".

I would put "What I Got" by Santeria no lower than #7. "You Know You're Right" is the song that I'd remove from the top 10 to make room for it. Some others that should be considered for an extended list:

Sam Cooke - Shake
Nirvana - The Man Who Sold the World; Where Did You Sleep Last Night
Sublime - Santeria; Wrong Way
Otis Redding - I've Got Dreams to Remember; Hard to Handle; Happy Song; Love Man
Buddy Holly - Peggy Sue Got Married; Crying, Waiting, Hoping
Jim Croce - I Got a Name; I'll Have to Say I Love You in a Song
Jimi Hendrix - Angel
Elvis Presley - My Way
John Lennon - Nobody Told Me
Janis Joplin - Mercedes Benz
