Which Northern Track You Dislike The Most

Guest ScooterNik

I used to hate the intro to 'Moonlight, Music and You' so much that I took to skipping it when playing it. Then I realised that the rest of the track was pretty crap too.

Chuck in that bloody Germs record that I can't remember the title of, and one that will get me strung up, 'Paris Blues'. I really detest that tune with a passion...

But what do I know?

That record by Wombat - I'm Gettin' On Life (Gemni)

What on earth is that all about :no:

It has a really peculiar and awkward rhythm, plus a really weird hillbilly, come country & western kind of sound

How anyone could accept this as a soul record, let alone a northern soul record beggars belief frusty2.gif

I might let someone off for having danced to it when just a teenager in an amphetamine-fuelled state. As for listening to it though - anyone who rates this as a soul or northern soul record 1) has cloth ears and 2) should have their head tested

It's one of the worst middle-of-the-road novelty records of all time

So endeth the sermon :wave:

Cheers

Richard

No idea whom you are, but a great reply

One of best dance tracks ever as you know by what you wrote.

Can't blame you for taking the mickey out of this thread.

I did it myself somewhere. Not sure where.

I have to say this.

The thread negotiation is diffiicult. On a thread I go to where I talk about poker, it's just a click to see my last posts, answers to my posts, etc it takes a few seconds..

I never have to trawl through to find anything.

here's a thought

maybe the fault is your end

maybe you are using a old browser that dont like the site

maybe the fault is this end

maybe its a mix of both

trouble is you just posting "get it fixed" in a thread does not tell me anything

its working fine on all the test browsers

thats replying and viewing last read posts and viewing all own posts etc

if you post up your problems and your browser etc in members forum

https://www.soul-source.co.uk/forum/41-members-forum/

then can have a look and try and see what problem is

Have you ever had gear?

Or indeed been to a nighter?

You offer a big opinion about many records that many people loved.

It might never occur to you that you are insulting people with your pathetic remarks.

There are thousands of people who loved and adored that record.

You never went any where did you?

I love coming home off holiday to uncalled for abuse.

No I've never taken gear (because that's SO important to you), I've never been to a Northern Soul event or even bought a Northern record. I know nothing about it whatsoever.

You've pulled this one before, 20 years ago you actually wrote to me when I was doing Beatin Rhythm magazine and had a rant about me slagging of The Larks 45. You need to get a life. Go back to writing your sad poems.

I would, I love it - but I like most records which sound like that - starts off quiet, builds up then hits you with a huge chorus.

Agree with you on the Deadbeats and the Q though, second rate garage punk.

I also love Jay Traynor, I can probably understand why some don't, but for me it's late Wigan/Searling & great memories from the main hall.

I've had me monies worth out of this thread but I'll throw another cr@p record in.

G.I Joe We Love You by the Fantastions, I actually got it on a Chicago Soul cd, I don't imagine it ever gets spins (tell me it doesn't please), but it's pure unadulterated junk, which is funny cos on the same cd is' In Other Words' by The Fantasions, which I like.

That riles me almost as much as seeing someone using the phrase B-B-Q, it's LOVE thief not LOVER thief. Why do people call it that (well I do know, because of a Kent error) and why do people call NABAY the name NARBAY?

Sorry Pete it always makes me think of The Cook, The Thief, His Wife, Her Lover. Never seen a Kent copy.

It's still rubbish... :)

Quick question why you are around Pete as I can't be arsed to start a thread to ask it & reckon you might know?

Just watched a copy of Four Voices, You love is getting stronger, sell on a gold Voice label, is this a re-issue or variation of the green one?

Village of tears - Ben Zine, what a waste of 3 minutes

Does "Marchin - The Camp" qualify cause thankfully I ain't heard it played out for 30 years

Used to like Ben Zine back in the day (even bought a copy) but as for The Camp, come to think of it, Happy Cats - Boots etc, Jan Davis - Raunchy 1970, what were thet all about?

You couldn't make this shit up

Are you seriously tone deaf? Or just mentally retarded?

Anyone with any taste at all..even if they have never heard a soul record in their life can appreciate that record..it is unreally good..it gets played out for a reason..Completely wrong era of music for me and I still love it

I bet you have a Lighthouse Family CD

im entitled to my opinion as you are...didnt say it wasnt good musically ...said i didnt like it..two different things mate....i apprciate gary barlow can write a good pop song dont mean i wanna fuckin hear it...i hear just loving you at least every month,as im out every weekend and thats too much for me.....tone deaf ? nope ,played guitar ,bass and drums....mentally retarded..now youre just being ...well you....to be honest most of my plays,buys and fave dancers are uptempo 60s and rnb.... as for the lighthouse cd,it probably has more in common with just loving you than anything i own...

sorry for the language 'mods' but being told im mentally retarded,tone deaf and know nuffin about music does tend to piss me off a bit!

I agree with you, Deadbeats aka Phantom Janitor has an awesome backing track just begging to be danced to,always liked The Q from the off as well-great C/U name 'James Lewis/Case Of Tyme-very similar to the Manifesto boys.Always loved Jay Traynor,very atmospheric in the confines of the casino.

Joe Jama - My Life - HATE IT!

Joey Delorenzo - Wake Up To The Sunshine Girl - LOVE IT!??? :ohmy:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Main Change - Sunshine is her way - Nebula - Is my 'Guilty Pleasure'....Does anyone out there also admit to liking this Wigan 'Awfulness'? lol - I have had so much stick about that record over the years (Ok, I admit it - I even bought it!) ... I'm to embarrassed to state what I paid for it though lol.

I used to do a Fanzine called 'Northern News' and we had a section called 'Some Things Are Better Left Unplayed' (Ketty Lester referance) - Great Thread / Great Fun....No doubt it'll soon turn nasty though... :rofl:

I absolutely HATE The Five Royals - Catch a Teardrop...The list could go on lol

All the best,

As for the Charades- You Better Believe It, it's awesome!

The slight problem with the single was in the mastering by Pickwick.

They stereo enhanced it and ruined the pressing.

Interesting thread peeps.

I'm gonna get slagged for this but I don't like that 'The Harvey Averne Dozen - Never Learned To Dance' Normally gets played a couple of times a night at the moment and fills the floor but don't like the lyrics "Never learned to dance, grooving with romance" What??? It comes across as a really cheesy song to me. Every bodies got certain records the majority like but you don't and you can't seem to understand it but there you go this is one of mine, don't shoot me i'm sorry (and a young un still learning)

was talking to a "polish" friend at work about music and I got on to northern soul, it was difficult to explain what it was all about and how it developed, so I agreed to do her a couple of cd`s covering northern, crossover and modern.....must say i`ve got some fantastic ideas of the tracks to use just by reading this thread....thanks
