TSLS is the nearest SC gets to TSR. STTM is garbage. Much like most of SC.I bet you're a right laugh at Christmas Pumpo haha - easily the nearest thing to TSR and the most interesting tune on SC along with Daybreak.
I was more concerned with the Wonderwall line.Pfff.
In some ways, it's the furthest thing from anything on TSR.
It sounds like what it is: a vaguely organised jam, with no melody at all.
That sort of thing might work out for some bands, but not really The Roses, whose entire way of working around the time of TSR was the opposite of that. Guitar lines meticulously arranged, melodies worked out fastidiously on keyboards, lyrics worked and reworked so that every single word was worth the breath it took to sing it. And arranged to within an inch of the songs' lives.
If you like it, that's fair enough, but there's no point pretending that STTM bears any resemblance to anything - melodically, harmonically, lyrically or spiritually on TSR, because it doesn't.
TSLS and STTM both share something in common...the singing of noises rather than words. 'Oooowwwwooo' and "Dooodoododododo...dodododoodo". Poor.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZ3uTYLghAI
Daybreak still sounds amazing as well.^^^ this
Not really related but I spent a week in hospital in 1998 for saying "Squire's a dick, Brown rules!" to the wrong people.I once had a front tooth knocked put after having a coin thrown at me and later that evening in the ‘fun pub’ we were in my friends kept requesting ‘I Love Your Smile’. Great days, can’t go back etc etc
