Nice work Gsoul... and like your profile pic.... is that you or is that Lenny Kravitz.

Thank you. Though I have been told, on a couple random occasions, that I look like this guy, it's actually not me. It's my favorite artist, Eric Benet.

"There goes my hero, watch him as he goes.

There goes my hero, he's ordinary..."

I want to write songs like Dave when I grow up. (Actually, I already grow'd up. But man, can he write some songs. And pick a drummer. You will not find another like Taylor Hawkins.)

I'm not a big Foo fan... but that song is good. Brings back memories. Is that the one your team chose to do GSoul?

I like the Foo Fighters. I trust GSoul's selection process as I did last time, even when it chose differently from the songs I suggested. I think G is using the poll at the top of the thread, where "Hero" is in the lead.

Well, I always do a poll, and it turned out most people wanted to go with Foo Fighters.

I kind of thought everybody was going to go with Silent Lucidity, which is why I brought that one up. Guess people just weren't feeling it at the moment.

I think it might be because there's already a Silent Lucidity thread from yesteryear a few entries below.  The more variety in song selection, the more choices we'll have. Probably a similar but more extreme situation with All of Me being re-suggested in the RnB section.

I voted for Purple Rain as stylistically I suspect it would be the most challenging for me as I've never really sung a Prince style song which is almost a genre in itself. As for My Hero, I used to listen to the Color and the Shape as a young teen, but I can still remember the melodies and some of the guitar hooks in my head so that's a catchy song. Should be something people can latch onto. A custom guitar lead bed track might be easier to create than something with orchestral elements as well for a simpler song.

Best phrase in the thread "a Prince style song, which is almost a genre itself."

So true.
