I fcuking love that Guitar line man, Slash is amazing! it carries the whole song single handedly.

Absolutely keano jan, he makes the guitar sing and cry in that outro. I just wonder how much of that was down to MJ's quest for perfection and his musical direction. I remember Van Halens solo in "Beat It" was basically comprised of 83 different takes cut together.

Pedram jaan, I am sure MJ had his own influence to it as well. However given Slash's arrogance and notorious attitude I doubt he let too much of MJ's say in the guitar line!

Yea, i heard they had done some tracks on their latest with Tom Morello and Mike Shinoda. Cypress Hill always had that cross-over value.

Niiice track pourya jan. I was a massive fan of the 90's dance scene. Sash had some big hits here, this prob being my fave of his...

We had a great dance/trance scene back in early/mid-nineties before it really kicked off on a commercial scale, some one hit wonders remain club anthems even today in various forms.

I was never a fan of the British sound since it built upon the same club sound from early 90's that we have talked about before and you favoured Pedram jan. It was too happy and messy for my taste!lol

 

I never liked Ecuador and Sash's other massive early hits, I rather liked his less successful songs like Stay which was still a hit but not nearly as big as the early ones! This song perhaps represents the trance sound which I held dear, with a sadness in it somewhere. There is a scene in Bourne ultimatum that has always reminded me of this video!

I also liked "Stay" pourya jan. Though by that time the subtle melancholic element was unable to really freshen up his formula enough to me to appreciate it as much. His original hits appealled more as they had a huge presence in the UK club scene just at the time when i was a young teen blagging my way into clubs with a fake ID and stick-on moustache lol :giggle:

 

Another fine track at the time and a UK anthem was this track from Trainspotting OST:

lol no pourya jan, i did have a fake ID though and also used to make my sparse adolescent facial hair thicker with the aid of mascara pen hehe. I was quite short at the age of 14 so i needed all the tools at my disposal to get entrance to the clubs hehe. Man those were good times, the excitement lining up in the queue not knowing whether you'd get in or not was worth the admission price alone lol.

 

Were you big on the club scene at that age too pourya jan?

hahaha, yeah I was and thanks to my appearance which you have seen in that retro-romantic pic lol I had no trouble getting in clubs and it on with older ladies!lol :D The whole club hopping period of teenage years had me to more and more come away from those scenes and these days clubs are seldom where I end up at!lol that and the fact that I abused my ears so much during those days that I today cant be in a club in more than 10 minutes, after that my eardrums (right one in particular) start to swell and feel pain! so in order to prevent risk of developing tinnitus I avoid those levels and wear plugs when in concerts! I rather look goofy than get my ears beeping for the rest of my life!lol :D

I rarely go to clubs now either, when i do it's the atmosphere that puts me off rather than the volume. Though i totally agree with you, you have to look after your ears. As a guitarist i've spent far too long enduring insane volumes on stage and in practice. I have a few friends that are hard of hearing even in their twenties as a result. Another friend who is actually partially deaf in one ear after sitting next to a speaker at a Faramarz Assef concert some years ago hehe.

 

A gem from '99....

Haha yea he robbed the beat, unfortunately he didnt take the quality with it though. Maria Maria was quite a minimalist arrangement and production so i guess it never had that "climax" you look for pourya jan. Instead it relies on the guitar licks and vox arrangement heavily. I never quite understood Wyclefs adlibbing role in the track though. Talking of which, do you rememebr this comical collaboration of his...

lol never heard that one!

 

Wyclef is to me a very overrated producer whose range is very limited, speaking of Wyclef his fellow Fugees member Pras had a few solo hits back in the 90's which worked better for me than Fugees music which I never really liked!
