Talk:The Guitar

From This Might Be A Wiki

Rating[edit | edit source]

Why do you wikis rate this song so low? Have you seen it performed live? It is the most rockin, jammin party song in their whole enormous catalog. I would rank The Guitar as one of the very best, quintessential TMBG songs, definitely in the top five overall. If you do not agree, please explain. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.154.186.24 (talk) 15:52, October 3, 2007

I wholeheartedly agree with you. The TMBG Clock Radio version (featuring Mark Pender) is amazing. ~ Jbshryne 18:54, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

So young[edit | edit source]

Ah! They look so young in this video! They look about 21! --Sparkling_Omelets 14:57, June 2, 2010

Warsaw Polish Home[edit | edit source]

Gigantic was also filmed there. Perhaps this should be mentioned on either this page or Gigantic's page? I mean, Puppet Head's filming location was also where they filmed the Gigantic interviews. There should be some sort of recognition about how TMBG visited old video locations for Gigantic. -- Jason DeLima - ! - 06:19, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

The Lion Sleeps Tonight[edit | edit source]

Just wanted to point out that TMBG released this song in 1992, the same year that R.E.M. put out their song "The Sidewinder Sleeps Tonite". In addition to the reference in the title, the song also includes Michael Stipe singing a few bars of the chanting from The Tokens' version. Two of the best bands of the '90s referring to the same song in the same year?! Happy coincidence or a heretofore unknown conspiracy? Hmm... --MisterMe (talk) 11:49, 7 July 2015 (EDT)

The Live Guitar[edit | edit source]

This is one of the few songs that I partially agree with Mr. Tuck on (when he talks about the songs in a negative fashion, that is). Now, for those of you who are wondering where his review of this song is, for whatever reason, he felt the need to put it in the interpretations section. On to the point: I agree that it is a weak song. What I dislike about it is the fact that it's probably the most boring track on the album. When I first heard it, I loved it! Then, I found a complete live performance on YouTube (taken from a livestream in 2010), where they play the song. It was the third song they played (not counting the intro music). After hearing that performance, I realized that it is one of the few songs that sounds so much better live than on the album. This, along with certain performances of Ana Ng (the At Large version to be specific), and Man It's So Loud In Here (a couple fan recordings from the same concert at Mohegan Sun to be specific again). -Bouncer15111
