What are some songs with your favorite drum grooves?
Fool in the Rain - Bonzo's most creative groove by far
A few of my favorites...
MJ: Billie Jean
Paul Simon: 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover
JB: Cold Sweat
Stones: Honky Tonk Women
Zeppelin: The Lemon Song
Brubeck: Take Five
"Honky Tonk Women"
Procol Harum, "Bringing Home The Bacon"
Billion Dollar Babies - Alice Cooper
Steely Dan - "King of the World"
The Beatles - "Rain"
Sly: Hot Fun in the Summertime
Hypnotized - Fleetwood Mac
Danny Hutton, Roses and Rainbows, with he late great Earl Palmer doing the honours:
Watching the detectives.. or don’t wanna go to Chelsea! - Elvis Costello and this attractions.
No One Receiving - Brian Eno
The Drum Also Waltzes - Max Roach
Walking on the Moon - The Police
Steely Dan — Home at Last (Bernard Purdie)
The Staple Singers - I'll Take You There
.Chicago — Danny Seraphine
Queen’s “Another One Bites the Dust” is just brutal.
Prince has some unique sounding drum grooves: “1999”, “U Got the Look (Long Look)”, “Hello” come to mind.
Toto- Girl Goodbye. Jeff Porcaro could create a hell of a “rock pocket”.
Right now probably something on this Placebo 1971-1974 compilation I've discovered yesterday, which is loaded with good ones!
Another track with some nice moves is Blind by Deep Purple:
Hooverphonic - Inhaler...drop your first tab...now...then push "play":
Weekend Players, side project of Groove Armada's Andy Cato. Chill and syncopation meets Steve Reich.
Rachel Foster's vocal occasionally drifts into measures of 5/8 and 7/8, causing your rhythmic, nodding head to suddenly shift to the "wrong" beat. But the song stays in 6/4.
