In the middle of Dire Straits' Tunnel of Love it almost grinds to a halt, at the bit where he recalls going to the Spanish City fairground as a kid.

Question - The Moody Blues. Not a middle 8, just the middle bit of the song, slow & quiet, while beginning and end are turn-up-loud.

I find this style of thread in the music folder quite interesting in a way, its like a group of colour-blind people trying to describe a Jackson Pollock painting.

Do you get punched often?

No. You?

Chank is considerably smarter than yo

Early Sabbath was noted for having a lot of songs with a slow and melodic middle eight, Gumly.

'Chank is considerably smarter than yo'

That doesn't necessarily follow.

HouseOfLametta - 18 May 2021 16:54:39 (#18 of 50)

That's true.

The slow bit in the otherwise rather noisy “Celebrated Summer” by Husker Du, about 1 mins 50s.

The bit of Coleridge in the middle of Maiden's Rime of the Ancient Mariner.

Clue - it's not Frost At Midnight.

If Chank’s point is that some embedded media might be be handy for threads like this, he’d be right.

I think the main point chank is trying to impress is that he's smarter than everyone else, and the main person he is trying to impress this upon is himself. But I might be mistaken, I suppose.

raymie - 20 May 2021 12:08:28 (#25 of 50)

everybody else knows that you know it's you who's smartest

thisonehasalittlehat - 20 May 2021 12:13:59 (#26 of 50)

Well, look, I've no idea. Up here the air is too rarefied to think about such things.

In the old days, if someone said something amusing, they might get classic quoted. Nowadays they're asked if they get punched and are accused of showing off. Weird.

Very good point.
