Songs Between Songs

Recommended Posts

What's the deal with these artist that put songs.music,talking,etc... between songs? For example if song 7 is over then you should go right to song 8 .Instead here is the 2 minute countdown,backwards of course,of a snippet of a song.Either make that little snippet a song or don't put it on the CD !

I do, and I f*cking hate it.

 

Just listen to the album from the most under-rated band on this forum. Their song 'I remember' from their brilliant last disc, 'Common Courtesy' is a KILLER closing song (before the 3 bonus tracks) and clocks in around the 3-4min mark... yet the track is 9mins long!!! Because there's about 5mins of pointless chatter after the song ends. Soooo annoying. Because you want to put good songs on compilations, and that's a good song, which will never make it on any compilation, ever. :(

 

If you're still unsure who the band is, you're missing out, like the rest of the forum (where's Tim (2)??) on the mighty and brilliant A Day To Remember.

Oh, that. Yeah. That's really annoying. 9 out of 10 times.

Still have no idea what y'all are talking about.... :blink:

 

If you're referring to bands who hide an extra song at the end of a CD's last track , I thought that gimmick went the way of the buffalo a loooooooong time ago.

I guess there's different annoying things.My latest example is Turbonegro-Scandinavian Leather.Listen to song 7.It says its about 4 minutes long but it really is a little over 2 minutes long.Then it goes into a 2 minute countdown backward as song 8.Then when that's over song 8 comes on.

 

Now you won't notice this if you play it on your computer but you will if you play it in your car or on a CD player.

 

I hope you're right,Freddy and bands stop doing that foolish gimmick.

Is this what you mean? The song ends at about 4:45, but it's followed by some bullshit that, like Geoffery said, keeps it from making any playlists.

For me it's simple. If an actual song is 3mins long the track should be 3mins long. If the track runs any longer than 3mins, for any reason whatsoever, it annoys the shit out of me.

Geoff, try audacity.

 

Here's the first example that comes to my mind. A really great song (Actually the song is 23 minutes long due to the repeated relaxing sound of waves on the shore) but I guess Latimer wanted to fill the empty cd space (another reason why cds suck!).

if i remember correctly,, the weirdest one i ever encountered was the Galactic Cowboys - Space in your face cd (1992 or 3?)

the cd player would read a ton of tracks,, but many of the extras were short and blank, then there was a long and blank one with a sogn starting in the middle,, then more blanks, then a long blank where the timer counted BACKWARDS,, and then there was a final song...

This happened also with this cd when I tried to rip it (some years ago).

I've got a few CDs where there's a 'hidden' track at the end ... either making the 'last' track ridiculously long, or putting a whole load of really short, silent tracks on the disc so it looks like there are 99 songs on there ...

 

NIN's 'Broken' springs immediately to mind ...

Yeah, and if you buy the online digital version of some of these older CDs you could end up getting a 10 minute mp3 with a good chunk of silence and a crap tune at the end.

 

This is nobody's favorite Firehouse song (starts at 4:33):

Overkill's W.F.O. disc is the same way ...the CD reads 99 (!) tracks... when the album proper ends, there's a bunch of 'empty" tracks that are only two or three seconds apiece. Eventually the "hidden" track comes on and it sounds like a live tape of a drunken jam session - sloppy covers of Priest's "The Ripper," Hendrix's "Voodoo Chile" and a few others.

    • Uhh... have you seen the slate of releases for early 2020? Shits all over 2019.
    • Not so fast my friend. Hold on a minute...... Without a single noteworthy release in 2020 out yet, these are ridiculous proclamations! 
    • Fap fap fap fap fap... 2020 could wind up being the very year for releases that 2019 wasn't.
    • Mediocre song, mediocre vocals.  Guy sounds like a lesser version of about seven different singers.
    • Yep, that's a good start.
    • I dig that song.  Want to hear more.
    • Yeaaah...I hate that solo.  For me, the second half of that song is awful.  The first is off the charts great.  That signature riff?  Incredible.  But when it slows down, it dies.
    • Paul  mixes both Wicked and Radio Sun, Steve features in both. Don't if he got digs down here, it mainly Melbourne where he based .Also he might come down to get a suntan (lol).  
    • From facebook: ”THE DARK DELIGHT” out on April 3rd! Swedish melodic metal band DYNAZTY to release new album ”THE DARK DELIGHT” on April 3rd. First single ”PRESENCE OF MIND” out on January 30th. Formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 2008, DYNAZTY has since released 6 albums in a mere 10 year window.  Straying from their early days of 80’s influenced Hardrock, the band has developed and refined their sound into something that merges the modern metal scene with the past, crafting something wholly unique. Today the band is comprised of highly respected and sought after musicians, active on the metal scene in more than one way. Bassist Jonathan Olsson can also be seen in both LINDEMANN and PAIN, guitarist Love Magnusson and drummer Georg Härnsten Egg frequently tours with rock legends such as DEE SNIDER and JOE LYNN TURNER. Guitarist Mikael Lavér has been featured with both LINDEMANN and JOE LYNN TURNER, while singer Nils Molin can be heard and seen around the globe with the ever rising star of fellow Swedish band AMARANTHE. DYNAZTY are now on April 3rd set to release their biggest and most engrossing album yet - ”THE DARK DELIGHT”. Singer Nils Molin says about the album: ”We pulled out all the stops, pulled no punches and held nothing back on this one. ”THE DARK DELIGHT” is the complete vision of what this band has always wanted to be”.   Spearheaded by the first single/music video ”PRESENCE OF MIND”, DYNAZTY enters the new decade with a bang. The single and music video of PRESENCE OF MIND will be released on all platforms on January 30th. ”PRESENCE OF MIND showcases the raw nature of our band and is just the kind of groovy and melodic onslaught of a song we always wanted to release as a first single”.
