elastic bands – this week: F

arteesane-F-elastic-bands

I’ve got a plan… for a FFFFFFFFFF Frenzy
The game to illustrate either:
How wildly eclectic your taste is… or,
How perfectly streamlined it is.

Rules.
I will post a letter of the alphabet
all BANDS or ARTISTS must begin with that letter.
Artists letter is determined by the letter at the beginning of their SURNAME (if they use it) – ignore the use of ‘The’ in a bands name.
up to 13 songs are allowed – fewer if you wish.
All can be the same artist if that represents you perfectly or all the same genre.
Just make them great tunes.

Make a youtube playlist (if you like) and link to it – just link to it – don’t overload the thread.

Cut and paste the band names and tracks (in a joyous list style) in the comments.
Then we can chat about the choices – add some waffle if you want (about how narrow or varied those choices are) … but above all, have fun.

THIS WEEK IS: F

It’s not a Mystery Inc. Rube Goldberg trap.

      • Random guess though I was surprised that you followed last week’s “E” with “F”. I was preparing some other stuff and thought “well we’ve not had F yet I’ll put some tunes in a playlist” then lo and behold you posted it this week. Coincidence!!

    • Foreigner opened for the Stones when i saw them in Philly, i have to say they were great, gave well over 100%. I forgot about them, but if i had to pick i guess i’d still go for I Want to Know What Love Is, it was so different than anything else i ever heard them do. Hot Blooded was a righteous rocker though.

    • The tunes are:

      Fall Out Boy – This Ain’t A Scene It’s An Arms Race – one of their shorter titles I believe 😉 Where is AIP?
      Foster the People – Pumped Up Kicks – now that’s got ear worm potential written all over it.
      Feeder – Seven Days in The Sun, we’ll be lucky if we get the sun shining for seven consecutive days, but a great tune, nonetheless. Not seen them butler they ‘went off the boil’ with Renegades so not listened to any of their recent stuff beyond that album.
      Fleetwood Mac – Peter Green and Need Your Love Tonight
      Fleetwood Mac – Stevie Nicks and co – Gold Dust Woman
      Florence and The Machine – Drumming Song – great performance this at the Royal Albert Hall.
      Foals – Black Gold
      Foo Fighters – Arlandria – so looking forward to the new album due out later this year. Saw Dave and co in Hyde Park a few years ago, simply awesome. Brian May and Roger Taylor put in an appearance during the encore, superb.
      Foreigner – Juke Box Hero
      The Fratellis – Chelsea Dagger
      Frightened Rabbit – The Woodpile – how many times can I thank blimey for posting this tune here on the Spill. I love this song and the introduction to this band who are brilliant.
      Futurehead – Decent Days and Nights
      Four Seasons – Who Loves You

  1. whoa, this is early, innit. I have no idea where the past week went, feel like i just put last week’s list up. Anyhoo –

    Lotta ladies for me this week, pair of Carole King covers, some 80’s jewels, and wrapping it up with some righteous classic funk, rock, and prog.

    I seem to have 14, so i’ll peek at Leavey’s list to see what he beat me to and what i can leave off. (ok, nothing, apparently.)

    Roberta Flack – The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
    Aretha Franklin – You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman
    Bryan Ferry – Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow
    Fleetwood Mac 2.0 – Landslide (probably a lazy choice, but i still love it – left out Christine McVie and interim Fleetwood – Emerald Eyes or Sentimental Wind)
    Marianne Faithfull – Broken English
    Frankie Goes To Hollywood – Relax
    The Fixx – Red Skies at Night
    Fatima Mansions – Shiny Happy People
    Fabulous Thunderbirds – Tuff Enough
    Lutan Fyah – Natural Herbs
    Funkadelic – Get Off Your Ass And Jam
    Free – All Right Now
    Faces – Stay With Me

    1. Fields of the Nephilim – Preacher Man
    2. Faith and the Muse – Sredni Vashtar
    3. Furniture – Love Your Shoes

    11. Fotheringay – Winter WInds
    12. Jackson C Frank – Blues Run the Game
    13. Fleet Foxes – Helplessness Blues

  3. F is one of my favourites: I chose 14 cos I didn’t know if frank black would count.

    false front – maniac i
    the folk devils – where the buffalo roam
    faraquet – the view from this tower
    felt – trails of colour dissolve
    the fall – paintwork
    the farmers’ boys – who needs it?
    flesh for lulu – heavy angel
    the farm – too late
    the features – lions (almost written for Tyrion)
    frank black – two spaces
    fugazi – waiting room
    fucked up – inside a frame
    flotation toy warning – even fantastica
    front 242 – headhunter

    F plan

    • ah, I forgot a few you’ve covered there, Vanwolf. Donds to Flesh for Lulu, Front 242 and Fugazi, they were a good live band (are they still going?).

      • i don’t think fugazi have done anything for ages so presume they’re not. i was sure someone would have brilliant mind and then i see you’ve picked a different track by furniture. sorry i didn’t pick a FotN track btw!

        • I don’t like Brilliant Mind as much as several other songs by Furniture, but it is the one on all the 80s compilation. No worries about the Nef, I picked two tracks so no one else would have to 🙂

  4. I’m fairly certain I listed the Four Tops and the Four Brothers when we did numbers and punctuation. So, setting aside them and the Fatal Microbes, Faces, Fad Gadget and Frankie GTH….

    Patrik Fitzgerald – Safety Pin Stuck iIn My Heart
    Fairground Attraction – Allelujah
    Funkadelic – One Nation Under a Groove
    Flying Lizards – Summertime Blues
    Frente! – Bizarre Love Triangle
    Flys – Love and a Molotov Cocktail
    Ella Fitzgerald – It’s Only a Paper Moon
    The Fall – How I Wrote Elastic Man
    Aretha Franklin – I Say a Little Prayer
    Fox – Imagine Me Imagine You
    Bryan Ferry – This Is Tomorrow
    Wild Man Fischer – The Taster
    Fine Young Cannibals – Ever Fallen In Love

    A couple of cover versions there by people whose song writing I like. No idea why.

  5. Ach! There’ll be no YT playlist again from me: too many on my list I can’t find. I’ll ‘Box ’em though. Back in a bit….

  6. The Fall – Industrial Estate
    The Fatback Band – I Found Loving
    Fatima Mansions – Popemobile to Paraguay
    Fine Young Cannibals – Blue

    Flamin’ Groovies – Shake Some Action
    The Flaming Lips – Do You Realise ?
    Aretha Franklin – I Say a Little Prayer
    Franz Ferdinand – Take Me Out
    Free – My Brother Jake
    Freez – Southern Freez
    Frightened Rabbit – The Oil Slick
    The Futureheads – Hounds of Love

  7. I’ve typed these in thought order; I’ll Drop them in a sensible play order. And you’d better listen now, y’hear? Don’t touch that dial, because …

    * draws hand cannon from waistband *

    Any of you fuckin’ pricks MOVE, an’ I’ll execute every muthafucking last one of you!!

    😉

    Fun Lovin’ Criminals – Scooby Snacks.
    Fab Five Freddy – Une Sale Histoire (Female Version).
    Florence And The Machine – You Got The Love.
    Funkadelic – Super Stupid.
    Feline – Release.
    Funki Porcini – Dubble (Organ Swell).
    Free – Don’t Say You Love Me
    Fave Free song changes weekly.
    Frankie Goes To Hollywood – The Power Of Love Yes, really!
    Faith No More – Falling To Pieces.
    The Fixx – Outside.
    Fairground Attraction – Allelujah.
    The Family Stand – Shades Of Blue.
    Dionne Farris – Stop To Think

    Shit. No space left for The Four Tops! That’s purely because I couldn’t decide which song to pick.

    Oh, and here’s a shameless extra YouTube vid, specifically for all the parents out there:

    This is deffo a TMI admission, but Feist in this video is an absolute dead ringer for my first serious girlfriend … I mean really, SCARILY so.

  8. I wasn’t worried about snagging your Free tune, i figured you had an arsenal. Donds for Funkadelic, and no beef at all with your Frankie pick. (I had alts there too.) Glad to see another Fixx tune, thought i might be alone there.

    Both you and Steve have Fairground Attraction, are they someone i should know about?

    • oh, that was to DsD but ended up in the wrong place. Think i’m bad today, good thing you didn’t catch me yeterday.

      • DsD’s Effin’ Fs are in the ‘Box, folks.

        Amy, re Fairground Attraction: occasionally twee, but usually lovely organic pop music. You will remember the single Perfect, which was as upbeat as they got; Allelujah is the other end of their scale.

      • you know, listening to that, Perfect doesn’t even sound remotely familiar to me. The Fall made some lists too – i know they were kind of massive over there? Don’t remember them ever making it over here, and if they did, i missed them. Don’t think i can name a single song.

    • That photo should be tattooed onto the body of each and every footballer as they are given their first professional contract.
      It would remind them that they are playing a sport. A sport that should be respected and played to the best of their ability within the rules and to the pinnacle of their talent without resorting to cheating, gamesmanship or theatrics. A sport that has no need for racism or ‘harmless swearing’ (i.e. abuse) of someone playing for, or supporting, a different nation.
      That photograph represents the brilliant aspect of two tremendous sporting greats, whom had the grace to congratulate each other at the end of a fascinating contest – the flip side of that coin would have the ‘hand of god’ on it – the beginning of the end of footballing sportsmanship and the reason for the awful ‘win at any cost’ world cups we face now.

      • To be fair, most of the players this time have been fair, well-behaved and sporting. Plenty of opposing players exchanging friendly comments and very little nastiness (just the occasional elbow in the back or head in the face….). It’s one of the many things making it such a good tournament. I hope it carries on this way.

      • yeah Chris there’s a lot of friendly exchanges — but the cheating has become normalised and if something isn’t done soon then this is the future of football – played by actors; not sportsmen.
        The falling to the ground while looking to the ref has happened in 3 matches (just in the penalty area – I lost count in open play) – the going down and rolling 15 times as if shot by a sniper is across the board now… broken legs are common place and then remarkable healed two seconds later (even when it was just a shoulder bump).

        Thierry Henry sat as a pundit shrugs at the accusation of handball (that ruined the Irish nations chance last world cup) – the co-commentators say “yeah that’s a good foul” as a player is taken out without any trying to get the ball (this used to be done; but it wasn’t hyped up as a ‘good thing’) – if Suárez did his deliberate handball this year ruining the joy of the whole African continent – the pundits would go “yeah – needed to be done”.

        This isn’t armed combat – this is SPORT.
        Sport is the idea of winning, playing beyond your means to get the greatest achievement, bettering yourself to help the team. None is this is being upheld.
        It is personal glory at ANY cost – and the cost is to look like a cheating fool with no morals… that isn’t sport.

        The simple result of this is to watch Children my sons age play football – the histrionics would be funny IF you didn’t look to the future, and realise that these are the future, and all they are learning is how to con, argue, cheat and play act – because that’s what they see on a global stage.

        It has to stop.

        Apart from that; it’s fantastic.

  11. Like Fred (the pretend Brazilian centre-forward), I haven’t got a clue. Pesky saneshane – that Scooby snacking, fun loving criminal – he might’ve gotten away with it this time.

    I recently purged the laptop of lots of artists and it has the following effs left:

    Femme En Fourrure; Funin; Faithless; Fout Tet; Flume; Field Music; Four Tops; Funkadelic;
    Flama; Freeez; FBI Project; Frifot; Aretha Franklin; Fatback Band; The Fabulous Denos; Floating Points Ensemble; Futureheads; Fall; Fats Comet; Flowering Inferno; Darrow Fletcher.

    That’s a bizarre selection – not what I thought it’d be. No youtube list this week as I’m too busy and also because going to yt results in limited connectivity and problems with the router.

  12. Back later with donds and a written list of my earlier playlist. Some flippin’ fantastic tunes by the looks of things have been listed.

  13. OK, here is my F list.

    There are a lot of people I left out, no Aretha Franklin, for example, but I wanted to pick a few things that people might not know, as well as a couple of all-time favourites.

    F is another one of those letters where I could quite easily do two lists.

    The Flock – Tired Of Waiting
    The Fifth Dimension – Stone Soul Picnic
    Fairport Convention – Who Knows Where The Time Goes
    John Fahey – On doing an evil deed blues
    Fripp & Eno – Evening Star
    Fleet Foxes – Helplessness Blues
    Fleetwood Mac – Dreams
    Donald Fagen The Nightfly
    Family – Observations From A Hill
    The Flying Burrito Brothers – Christine’s Tune
    The Flamin’ Groovies – Shake Some Action
    Focus – Sylvia
    Free – Fire And Water

    It’s_Carole’s_F’ing_list

  14. Aretha Franklin – Sweet Bitter Love.
    Falcons – I’m A Fool I Must Love You.
    Free – Oh I Wept.
    Four Seasons – Betrayed.
    Fleet Foxes – Mykonos – just so amazingly must sing along catchy.
    Fleetwood Mac – Love That Burns.
    Four Tops – Baby I Need Your Loving.
    Four Larks – I Still Love You.
    Brian Ferry – Carrickfergus – for some reason I was surprised by how much I liked his version.
    Flirtations – Little Darling.
    Chris Farlowe – Out Of Time.
    Roberta Flack – The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face.
    Fine Young Cannibals – I’m Not The Man I Used To Be.

  15. A fairly folky F list….The Full English appear twice – first a cappella, later with a setting of Brigg Fair, mainly instrumental but bookended with recording of folksinger Joseph Taylor from over 100 years ago. Fleetwood Mac appear twice too, and so does Sandy Denny, first with Fairport and then with Fotheringay.



    The Full English – Awake, Awake
    Fleetwood Mac – Oh Well
    Fairport Convention – Reynardine
    The Fisherman’s Friends – The Last Leviathan
    Fleet Foxes – Montezuma
    Marianne Faithful – This Little Bird
    Billy Fury – Wondrous Place
    Aretha Franklin – Respect
    Fine Young Cannibals – She Drives Me Crazy
    Fotheringay – Winter Winds
    Fatboy Slim – Sunset (Bird of Prey)
    The Full English – Brigg Fair
    Fleetwood Mac – The Chain

    • I’m still rather in love with The Full English’s eponymous album. The a cappella of Awake, Awake would have been perfect for that topic – the way the voices interact and harmonise so perfectly. Fleetwood’s Oh Well makes me smile and it’s a great sound too. Sandy’s voice and the setting of Reynardine are both ravishing – appropriately enough for a song about an innocent young lady and a foxy gentleman. The Last Leviathan is heartbreaking, not least because we know that the lead singer died not too long afterwards in a tragic accident. Hopefully we won’t hunt all the whales to extinction but the voice of the whale represents all the creatures that are at risk on this planet. Fleet Foxes’ song is thoughtful and tuneful, Billy Fury’s is sweet and sensual, Aretha’s song is an all-time classic, FYC’s number is very danceable, Winter Winds is wistful and lovely, and then come two lyrical (although very different) near-instrumentals from Fatboy Slim and the Full English. (Please, if you have not listened to the latter, do give it a hearing.) Finally for another Fleetwood number I picked The Chain in part because of the F1 bit…..

      • Forgot to mention Marianne’s song – lovely lyrics about the fragility of young love….hey, why didn’t I think of it for the Transience topic!

      • we seem to have quite similar taste in F artists! Some lovely ones in your list, I hadn’t heard of The Full English before, thanks for introducing them to me.

  16. Difficult to decide what to leave out rather than what to include this week, which is nice.

    Fanny Fink- Sweet
    Fromm-좋아해
    Foxygen – San Francisco
    Fleetwood Mac – Man of the world
    Marianne Faithfull – Is this what I get for loving you
    The Fugs – Boobs a lot
    The Four Seasons – Rag doll
    The Folkes Brothers – Oh Carolina
    The Flower Children – Miniskirt Blues
    The Five Blobs – The Blob
    Fantastic Zoo- Light show
    Father Ted- My lovely horse
    The Five Americans- Western Union.

    Almost thematic this week !. First off we get those pesky “furriners” out the way with 2 Korean artists, Fanny Fink draw on a twinkly , European influence style, reminiscent , I think, of the Japanese Shibuya-Kei of bands like Pizzicato Five so light, slightly jazzy.
    Fromm is more “folky” and, I think, has a very appealing voice.
    Foxygen’s track is the strongest thing on their album , IMHO, I owe the discover of this one to Ubuettte, it’s one of my favourite tracks of last year very “60s” but in a 2013 kind of a way.
    Fleetwood Mac’s song is so terribly poignant given subsequent events, almost hard to listen to when you know what was coming down the line for Peter Green. Not a big fan of the band but this is ace.
    Marianne gives it some “wall of sound” in this Ronettes cover, I actually prefer this to the original as Marianne has a fragility that fits the song so well.
    Fugs…er…a bouncy little number. Rude and funny.
    The Four Seasons, my fave of theirs , such a great band at times
    The Folkes Brothers, proto reggae, as primitive a sound as you can get ( is that tin cans they are bashing ) totally “human” music and great
    The Flower Children, fantastic slice of 60s garage rock, later covered by the Cramps
    The Five Blobs, Bacharach’s finest moment. Blobby blobby blobby
    Fantastic Zoo. If you like 60s psychedlic pop then you NEED to hear this one, tremendously freaky, man.
    Father Ted.
    The Five Americans, they were American, there were five of them, they sang jangly stuff very well indeed.

    link – http://tinyurl.com/ndufl48

    • Really enjoyed the Fromm, much to my surprise!
      Nodding-my-head-at-your-justi-donds for Fleetwood Mac.
      Grinned at The Fugs. Never knowingly heard it before.
      Intrigued (and pleased) to hear The Folkes Bros. Only knew Shaggy’s hit.
      Fantastic Zoo was, um, mindrocking!

      That’s a pretty good hit rate on me for you, Pairubu. Ta.

  17. In no particular order:

    Fat Boy Slim: Rockafeller Skank
    Four Tops: Bernadette
    Furniture: Brilliant Mind
    Roddy Frame: Reason For Living
    Fleetwood Mac: Go Your Own Way (obvs)
    Farley Jackmaster Funk: Love Can’t Turn Around
    Felice Brothers: Frankie’s Gun
    Fleet Foxes: Helplessness Blues (yeah, me too)
    Flaming Lips: Waiting For A Superman
    Marianne Faithfull: The Ballad of Lucy Jordan
    Fat Lady Sings: Arclight
    Frazier Chorus: Sloppy Heart
    Julia Fordham: Happy Ever After

    • Sloppy Heart is just perfect – the 1987 4AD take being the ideal – yet the one on ‘Sue’ is great to drop in the middle of Common People by Pulp for the fun of mixing them up. The big brother of (Sherlock Holmes’) Dr Watson wrote some ace oddities for lyrics.

    • Funny that we all chose that Fleet Foxes song, I’ve listened to White Winter Hymnal most, but Helplessness Blues is very good isn’t it? Donds to Furniture and Fatboy Slim too.

      • It’s a special song, I think, Beth.

        Is that a good thing, Carole? (Not being snide/’funny’ – I’m genuinely not sure if that’s high praise or faint praise! If it’s the pinnacle of their work or destined to be an albatross round their necks.) You may be right anyway. But for me, it’s far more profound/less nonsensical than Stairway to Heaven. I love trolls and what-have-you in books/films but I can’t really be doing with them in songs!

        • Stairway to Heaven is an interesting one. I avoided it for years due to its ubiquity, but I do find that if I haven’t listened to it for a while I am charmed by it again. I hope Helplessness Blues is not FFs pinnacle, I think Led Zep did better songs later (and before), but having one everyone knows can’t be a bad thing.

      • Agreed, Beth. I’m not a Led Zep fan but even I can think of songs of theirs I much prefer. It’ll be interesting to see what FF come up with next…

  18. Fairport, Fatima Mansions (esp. Viva Dead Ponies), (Peter Green’s) Fleetwood Mac, and a few fleeting faves (Aretha, Four Tops, Free, Faithfull, Fahey…)

  19. I always seem to arrive very late for this – today, probably because I’ve spent all day in meetings…

    Free: Fire and Water
    Fleetwood Mac: Everywhere
    Aretha Franklin: Chain of Fools
    Ella Fitzgerald: A Foggy Day
    Fever Ray: Keep the Streets Empty for Me
    Faith No More: Everything’s Ruined
    John Foxx: Europe After the Rain
    Brian Ferry: These Foolish Things
    Fleetwood Mac: Oh Well
    Um…

  20. I didn’t really have much time for this – but I think the first set fulfils my F needs rather well – the 2nd set could be contenders too- heehee (rules suck; 13 you say!):

    Fancy footwork HERE

    Marianne Faithfull – Why D’ya Do It?
    Sage Francis – Crack Pipes
    FC/Kahuna – Nothing Is Wrong
    Fanfarlo – Harold T. Wilkins
    Fan Death – Veronica’s Veil
    FSK (Freiwillige Selbstkontrolle) – Euro-Trash Girl
    Furniture – Shake Like Judy Does
    The Flying Lizards – Move on up
    The Faint – Dress Code
    Felt (feat. Elizabeth Fraser) – Primitive Painters
    Frankie Goes To Hollywood – Maximum joy
    Flunk – Blue Monday
    Freschard – Boom Biddy Boom

    Fever Ray – Dry And Dusty
    FlamingLips – the yeah yeah yeah song
    First Aid Kit – The Lion’s Roar
    The Fine Arts Showcase – Chemical Girl
    Four Tet – As Serious As Your Life
    Frazier Chorus – Anarchy in the UK
    Freq Nasty – Boomba Clat Feat Roots Manuva & Yolanda
    Finitribe – Asstrax (‘Animal Farm’ is my top pick but it seams ‘McDeath Burger’ doesn’t go down well in corporate land)
    Fujiya & Miyagi – Little Stabs At Happiness
    Fun Boy Three and Bananarama – It Ain’t What You Do (It’s The Way That You Do It)
    Fol Chen – In Ruins
    Fog – Pneumonia
