Noise to Note! #63

Robert Plant whipped out some solo hits and proved he could create solid music without his other famous band mates. This was one of his stronger efforts on the solo front.

This video also amuses me to a degree and it showcases the issues older artists run into while trying to seem relevant.

I can imagine the meeting with the producer and the guy pitching that the video has to be relevant to the kids! For MTV! So we have to find a dance squad to work in to the video and we have to show the band doing a choreographed segment. ZZ-Top is doing it so we should too!

The Middle Eastern parts, in my opinion, feeds into the overall feel of the song but the kids break dancing was kind of out-of-place. Especially to Robert Plant and not an artist that was featured on the song track to Beat Street.

On another note, the passing of an old friend threw off my posting of last weekends schedule. As always, I have written about 20 versions of my feelings. Mainly because his situation seems to be so common these days.

It will come.

Until I can make some sense of the topic, here is this weeks pick and it is from Robert Plant – In the Mood.

Revel in the beauty of the song and enjoy the hot mess of a video!

    This Guy whipped out some solo hits and proved he could create “solid” or “soiled” music without his other famous band mates, namely Kit. Sadly this was one of his stronger efforts on the solo front. Check out his 2-step bogie while holding the note, such talent

    I’m also “amazed”, “amused” at the skill level of the back up singers.

      Kit also served as the tour bus which many did not know. Amazing!

      I was really sad to learn that he refuses to play with Hobie and Jimmy Slade these days. He needs to clear his head and lose the ego. Maybe straightening the wave deck chairs will keep him in check so he can be what he does best…Our favorite singing Lifeguard Captain/Spy with car.

      One of my other readers, Chef Paula Dean, is upset with your poor attitude, Mr. H. and she is made at your choices of videos every week.

      She wanted to know how you are doing with YOUR site. She said you are a tofu nut and she said your jokes and your website are about the same…Naan existent! (ba dump!).

      She also wanted me to tell everyone that her new cook book is coming out and it is called…I’m Stuffed! She stuffs all of our meaty favorites with pork rinds and other goodies. My favorite is the pizza with stuffed crust of Slim Jims! Sooooooooouuuuiieee!

    I know how picky you are with typos so it should say…Mad at your choices of videos. My quotation keys are not working anymore by the way or I would put quotes in every sentence.
