Are there any songs you wish you had written?
Mainly electronic ones I guess.

I thought about this yesterday.
I heard 'Star guitar' by the Chemical Brothers.

One of my favourite tunes of all time.
For some reason it makes me want to run as fast as possible and take off.
Soaring and free.
The world rushing past me.

I also wish I had produced/written it as well.

I'm not sure why...

Yeah, fully agree with you Paul!
They have perfect timing and ideas to envy a lot. Also they apply a lot of sampling but they place them so that its really an art.
Although sometimes perfect for dancefloor, I'm not always a big fan of the "harsher" songs - like 'blockrockin beats'...But it might be a mood thing.

This one is also nice:

Helllooo knetter.

I was never a fan of blockrockin either.

I played 'star guitar' at my wedding back in 2005.
A lasting memory.
I was very drunk and dancing on my own....
:D
I quite like the 'swoon' track.
The beat isn't dominating the track.
It's nice and summery.

Funny how taste differs.

I really love a lot from chemical brothers and own at least one album, especially I like the more "intense" stuff like "block rocking beats".

But I really don't like "Swoon". Actually I think it's lousy, because

- the vocals sound like a bad Petshop Boys Remix
- The repetitive melody eguitar-like synth line sounds cheesy and I don't like the melody
- The mix is astonishingly bad (a lot of sounds fight agains each other, the to the left panned vocals are almost not hearable ???

The only really cool thing is the part at 1:55 - 2:05 - that I really love !!
But that's not enough for a complete production.

Sorry Chemical Brothers , but IMO there are really a lot of better professional tunes out there. Nonetheless I love a lot of your stuff.

Knetter: the first Chem. Broth. link from you is nice !


What I really would've loved to produce:

Almost all stuff by Ed Rush & optical:

Song: Snaggletooth
Song: chubrub

A lot of stuff by Noisia:
