Well I do not think this will be considered a classic in the future as moonlight serenade or rite of spring, I think it sucks!! Each to their own, I am more of a Stephan Grappelli and er ahh frank zappa kinda guy.

I recommed this if you're a fan of Flo and Eddie and other more "ribald" material. It's hilarious. And hook-laden; a musical pleasure.

Sucks; I think I said what kinda music I like, and I especially hate Snoop Dog. probably the closest I get to rap would be Charlie Daniels, long haired country boy, or the devil went down to Georgia.

Ahuaha, pretty much what I have predicted... No, except for the political and lyrical side of some of it, I am not into rap. Sorry, didn't mean to offend yer ear. Here, have some antidote:

make this a thread for me too.

after all these years, since this particular genre of music came about, I still haven't heard a rap song I liked. 8)

and, plook; it does not make me (or bravo sierra) a racist...

Bravo, you are being very close minded. I also used to think that rap music sucked until a friend got me into the less mainstream stuff. Some of these guys are absolute lyrical geniuses. I'd recommend:

I seem to get the impression that you must be talking about Gangste' Rap which I like very very few songs of (I pretty much like all music to some degree), I have personelly found that the more intergrated use of Rap into songs suck as Price Tag, Nothing On You, What's My Name, and a lot of Shaggy's stuff, is actually quit appealing. but if you can't digest a catchy tune, I guess it wont work for you.

This song was banned from Dutch radio, although it's good fun. Maybe you'll have to learn Dutch for it, but I wonder what remains if you don't understand what they're talking about.

That singer later had a hit with this:

I saw him live with that band. I swear that trumpet player was making eyes at me.

I really do not listen to rap but here is an old one for you guys to find and listen to, Keefe Hartley Band; The Time Is Near, from the album of the same name, when you finish with that give Dreams a go, the tune would be, Crunchy Granola Suite.

then just put on any Hermeto and forget about the rap for a while your ears will thank you.

How are you on R&B, a lot of elements in rock are based on it and R&B since the 90's has incorporated elements of rap?

I am not so sure anyone could take the claim of sampling king away from Big Audio Dynamite (founded by Mick Jones of the Clash), the album Megatop Phoenix released in 1989 is a tour de force of sampling and uses parts of Music, Poetry, Movies, Plays, you name it, it has actually everything but the kitchen sink...Oh I take that back...I think there is a kitchen sink in there somewhere. And yes on the song "James Brown" Mick Jones does a rap segment...

Overview - It was produced by Mick Jones and Bill Price. It was recorded and mixed by Bill Price at Konk Studios North London, assisted by George Holt and Fintan McDonald. It was compiled at Air Studios in the West End assisted by Andy Strange and mastered by Jacko at Tape One. The cover was designed by Bullitt and Big Audio Dynamite. Photos were by Dan Donovan assisted by Mark Bromfield. In 1990 Mick Jones formed Big Audio Dynamite II with totally different members. The phoenix in the title is a reference to a near-death experience of Jones, who had nearly died of pneumonia before recording the album but successfully recovered.

Track listingSide one
No. Title Writer(s) Length
1. "Start" Big Audio Dynamite 0:14
2. "Rewind" Big Audio Dynamite 4:35
3. "All Mink & No Manners" Big Audio Dynamite 0:41
4. "Union, Jack" Jones/Letts/Williams 6:04
5. "Contact" Jones/Donovan 4:42
6. "Dragon Town" Jones/Letts/Roberts/Williams 4:46
7. "Baby, Don't Apologise" Jones/Letts 4:51
8. "Is Yours Working Yet?" Big Audio Dynamite 1:03
9. "Around the Girl in 80 Ways" Jones/Letts 3:30

Side two
No. Title Writer(s) Length
10. "James Brown" Jones/Letts 5:08
11. "Everybody Needs a Holiday" Jones/Letts 5:33
12. "Mick's a Hippie Burning" Big Audio Dynamite 2:31
13. "House Arrest" Jones/Letts/Roberts/Donovan 3:59
14. "The Green Lady" Jones/Letts/Roberts 3:43
15. "London Bridge" Jones/Letts/Roberts 3:50
16. "Stalag 123" Jones/Letts/Roberts 3:11
17. "End" Big Audio Dynamite 0:34

Samples - The album makes copious use of sampling from various musical and other sources. Many of the tracks listed are created mainly from samples. Some of the samples are identified with their source below.

"Start" - Opening moments of Powell and Pressburger's A Matter of Life and Death
"Union, Jack" - Rule Britannia, Charlie Watt's drum opening from The Rolling Stones Honky Tonk Woman, Richard II and "You wouldn't know Karl Marx from a toffee apple" - from the film Britannia Hospital
"Contact" - Brief use of the main riff from "I Can't Explain" by The Who
"Dragon Town" - George Formby from "Mr Wu's a window cleaner now"
"Is Yours Working Yet?" - Alfred Hitchcock
"Around the Girl in 80 Ways" - Right Said Fred, by Bernard Cribbins
"James Brown" - "Living in America" by James Brown
"Micks a Hippie Burning" - Digging a hole, again by Bernard Cribbins and Withnail and I
"London Bridge" - London Pride by Noel Coward.
"Stalag 123" - The Great Escape Theme Music
"End" - Listen With Mother
According to The NME review of 2/9/1989 there are also samples of Arthur Scargill and BAD interviews.
