Year: 1974
Track Description:
Whores can be classy too, y'know? Quintessential Queen; Freddie Mercurie's vocals, the army of Freddies harmonizing, Brian May's multitracked guitar, the steady rythym section, and just enough camp to make it stick out.

I like this song's buildup; core instrument and a little bit hue at the beginning, a full-on arrangement overkill towards the middle, an excercise-in-negative-space ending.

Track 7 from Presto

Year: 1989
Track Description:
This is one of Rush's most underrated songs from their most underrated period. As far as I can tell, this song is a semi-sarcastic look at celebs and their need for acceptance and attention. Plus, as far as words that don't exist go, "superconductor" is a good one.

Phil Spector would be proud. I actually prefer Robert Schneider over Phil Spector, not only because Bob produced my favorite album of all time (Neutral Milk Hotel's "In The Aeroplane Over the Sea"), but Bob is also less likely to kill a guy.
