Doo-wop

Lately, i've been wondering what doo-wop would sound like with electronic instruments

:D

I at least know what that is, unlike a fair amount of our non-US personnel. So i voted nooooo because it would be the lowest turn-out ever. ;)

also i hate that music heheh. but didn't they use that style in some Little Shop of Horrors songs? I like that soundtrack.

i'm not sure, been a long time since i saw that

what i've noticed is that a large portion of doo-wop songs have the same chord progression. but at least it's a really good chord progression. what i was thinking is doing a medley of the theme from "happy days", the song "we go together" from grease, and then the muppet babies themesong. none of which are authentic doo-wop. still would be fun though

also, the bassline from Shania Twain's song "whatever you do... don't" really reminds me of doo-wop. amazing song, everybody should go check it out

I've been exposed to a lot of top 30 popular Country lately so I'm enjoying some of them. George Strait, Raskal Flatts, Bucky Covington. I like any good music and since it's what's currently popular in Country music, there are some good songs here and there.

there really are. i've never been a fan of the twang-ey honkey tonk stuff but i've always liked the harmonic female stuff. Shedaisy is another of my favourites. great 3 part harmony. Dixie Chicks (of course), Mary Chapin Carpenter, Martina Mcbride has some really good old stuff like "safe in the arms of love" and "independence day" which are classics. Sara Evans (suds in the bucket is the coolest song!!)... and I think everyone likes Allison Krauss! have you heard Nickel Creek? they're a bluegrass/country crossover group that I think Krauss produces. they're really good too

also i don't know if you've heard Shania's "up!" cd, but the "world" release has several discs, each with the same songs, but produced differently. the "world" cd is really cool with like indian percussion. even though it's really cheesy, it's really good

you sound like you're like me though... it doesn't matter what the backing instrumentation is, if it's a well written song, you'll listen to it :)

I'm familiar with that Shania Twain album and the different disc types. Forever and Always is a nice tune.

I really dig Nicklecreek too. When you come back down is a great song.
