Default As AE's/Producers, etc, what are some of your favorite sounding songs?

Though I realize musical styles vary, I'm interested to know what some of your favorite songs are from not just an artistic standpoint (songwriting, artist etc) but from the point of view of an engineer, producer, etc.

Not including Motown 50s-70s which I think spawned the greatest and most consistent music production in history:

Some of my favs not necessarily in this order:
Need You Tonight - INXS
Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen
Seven Nation Army - White Stripes
Starman - David Bowie
There She Goes Again - Velvet Underground

I'm still a big fan of Rough Mix by Pete Townshend and Ronnie Lane.

I took it over to a vinyl party and was embarrassed to have forgotten that my copy skips. I think Glynn Johns hit it out of the park putting these guys right in the room with the listener.

Man!

You whiteys' in dire need to review some true mofo classics:

Stevie Wonder: "Songs In The Key Of Life"

Earth Wind & Fire: "I Am"

Chic: "C'est Chic", "Risqué"

Michael Jackson: "Off The Wall", "Thriller"

Johnny Guitar Watson: "A Real Mother for Ya"



But otherwise... Steve Miller Band's "Fly Like An Eagle" and "Paraphernalia" sound pretty good to me.

You know, "Pa-ra, pa-ra phernalia/ I wanna reach out and grab ya"...

My opinion is based from my experiences as a DJ who has listened to possibly 20,000 or (probably) more different selections in the past 30 years. Here are 10 which pop out in my mind as being excellent in no particular order

Santana "Abraxis" - Columbia Records (1972) - If you can find the Mobile Fidelity 24K gold-disk version of this album, get it. Whenever I go on a DJ gig or am in a control room I'm unfamiliar with, I use it to check the system. Notable is the Hammond B3 and the drums on the song "I Hope You Are Feeling Better".

Stereophile Magazine "Test CD" volume three (1995) - my other go-to reference when setting up a sound system or referencing broadcast audio. Especially notable are performances by The Empire Brass Quartet, Doug MacLeod, and Jimmie Rogers.

Robert Silverman "Intermezzo" - the Works of Brahms" (piano) - Stereophile (date unknown) - if your system is set up correctly you will feel yourself in the church where this was recorded. Excellent performance by Sliverman.

Milt Jackson - "Milt Jackson" - Atlantic Records (date unknown) - serious jazz vibraphone. Another "you feel like you are in the room with the musicians" type of recording.

Herb Alpert - "Rise" - A&M Records (1979) - serious jazz trumpet. Especially groove-worthy is the song "Rotation" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4vACvafOvq0

Donna Summer - "On The Radio" Greatest Hits - Casablanca/Mercury Records (1980) - While all of Donna's albums produced by the team of Moroder & Bellotte sound excellent, when they remixed and mastered the tracks for the greatest hits album they nailed it. Sounds fantastic on everything from a boom box to a big club system. Lots of kick and dynamics with "space" around the instruments.

Led Zepplin - "Houses of the Holy" - Atlantic Records (1973) - Go rent yourself a big Clair Brothers system, put it in a big room like the old Cignal building in Baltimore, play the song "D'yer Mak'er" and you'll understand.....

Kraftwerk - "Computer World" - Warner Bros (1980) - Arguably the foundation upon which both Techno and Electrofunk were built upon.

George Michael - "Listen Without Prejudice" - Columbia Records (1990) - One of the few "all digital recordings" that actually lives up to the promise of what digital was supposed to deliver. Especially excellent is George's interpretation of Stevie Wonder's "They Won't Go When I Go", where the piano sits in the room and George's vocals surround you in the stereo field.

Madonna - "Madonna" - Sire/WB Records (1983) - After you are done listening to Led Zepplin on your rented Clair Bros system, put Madonna's first album on. Lot's of kick and dynamic range, especially on the first vinyl pressing. Notable is producer Reggie Lucas's guitar playing on the song "Lucky Star".

I could spit out a gazillion others including TS Monk, US3, Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Stevie Wonder, Flack & Hathaway, Loose Ends, Sade, Issac Hayes, Art Pepper, Herbie Hancock, China Crises, Nirvana, Pink Floyd, Beach Boys, Reba McIntire, Michael Jackson, Stevie Ray Vaughn, and on and on and on but got to get back to work now.....

Just my $0.02...

YO! U FOGOTTABOWT GEORGE CLINTON!!! BOW WOW WOW YIPPIE YO YIPPIE YEA!!!

You also need to add some Fatback Band to your list. Fatback Band is serious joint dude!

Chic "Risqué" on vinyl is better than sex! Especially the songs "Warm Summer Night" and "My Forbidden Lover". Make sure you get the Atlantic "Grey Label" pressing. The repressings with the Atlantic "Red & Green" label sound flat and tinny in comparison. Question for ya Tuba.... Who got stabbed on the album cover?

PS: Stevie's "Songs In the Key Of Life" was the 2nd album I bought as a kid. Saved my paper route money for it. Add Stevie's "Journey Through The Secret Life of Plants" to your list as well.

Like any number of Chaka Kahn's albums for Warner Bros. Get yourself the vinyl of "Naughty", spin it on your Grado equipped Pro-Ject turntable and crank it up on that formentioned fantasy Clair Bros system I suggested.

Better yet, get yourself a copy of Rufus's "Masterjam" album on vinyl and crank that! Chaka did vocals on it. John Robinson's drumming combined with Hawk Wolinski's keyboards, Tony Madden's guitars and Q's production work was a mighty hard act to follow in 1979. But follow they did which is why Q and John Robinson show up on Michael Jackson's "Thriller" three years later.

Get yourself a good deck like a Nakamichi Dragon and your cassettes might just have some life left in them.
