« on: September 10, 2018, 05:00:04 PM »
Totally fallen down an addictive rabbit hole here - Urban dudes listen to some 70's prog for the first time :

Joey Reacts : Echoes
Joey Reacts : The Great Gig In The Sky
Joey Reacts : Any Colour You Like
WeabooReacts : Can-Utility and the Coastliners
WeabooReacts : Supper's Ready
WeabooReacts : Queen II
Quamax : Bohemian Rhapsody

A thing of beauty mellotron in 9/8 time is a joy for ever!

What nice positive chaps. I was expecting some of those millennial types we've been hearing about, who react with irritated bewilderment to anything that's older than they are.

No Rush? Bummer.

Are Queen classed as prog rock? I never really thought about it.

The first couple of times Joey paused the track, I assumed he was going to make some dismissive comment like, "OMG! Is this even music?". Clearly I have misjudged the yoof of today.

He did a Sissons face when the vocal kicked in on Great Gig in the Sky.

Yeah, the sheer joy on Joey's face when 'the peaks' hit is wonderful - he loves the Torry!

I almost posted Joey Reacts in the youtube thread a few days ago. I think my favourite moment is at 19:30 during Echoes, his reaction to Gilmour's cascading arpeggio riff - putting his hands on his head as if his brain is about to explode with joy.

A bit weird that he's listening to Floyd in separate chunks on different days if he's fallen in love with them that much. I don't think I could do it, but I guess it's all in service of the channel.

I'd like to hear some die-hard rocker's reaction to this and see them try to keep their metaphorical socks on.

Coincidentally I ended up watching a load of the Joey Reacts ones yesterday when the Bohemian Rhapsody one showed up on my recommended vids. Even though most of the runtime is just literally watching a man listening to something, there's something strangely hypnotic about them and I ended up just letting the next one autoplay one after the other.

I wasn't expecting him to be so respectful of them either, and it's great how moved he seems by them. Good on 'im.

Originally I thought these were a bit throwaway but for fans of the music they can incite another bout of discovery. This play through of Led Zeppelin's "Since I've Been Lovin' You" is a good example. It's nice to see/hear someone experience the quirks and nuances that you grew you love, but in real time.

Although he's probably taking the piss cos he skipped through the start of the guitar solo.

It was quite eye opening (or ear opening, perhaps) that anyone in the English speaking world might not have heard Bohemian Rhapsody before. In its own small way, it's quite a powerful reminder to not take one's experience of the world for granted.

Can't wait for Joey to get round to this one, but in the meantime here's

If you're in the mood for something less proggy, reactions to Killing In The Name are pretty special.

I don't suppose anyone managed to grab Joey reacting to The Wall yesterday before it got taken down?

To be fair I would say a lot of the feeling of being known by everyone it had back in the 90's was due to a combination to Mercurys death and Waynes World so were now getting to a stage where people won't have strong up with that exposure.

This guy's reaction to Creep certainly took me by surprise. However, despite that being his most-popular video, he hasn't revisited Radiohead since (but did become briefly obsessed with Tool).

Try Ashtyn&Jon if you want to flinch with rage.

Quite possibly the dimmest couple I have ever witnessed. But sometimes she wears skimpy tops which is NOT why I first started watching them. You disgust me.
