Meme: Top Five On Friday – Week 60

From: The Music Memoirs

– Top Five On Friday – Week 60

Top 5 “British” Bands and a song by each

Whenever I hear the phrase “British Rock Music” or anything close (like ‘British Bands’) .. I can only think of two groups …. The Beatles .. and The Jeff Beck Group … The Beatles, while there are lots of pick in my library, I thought I would start with Jeff Beck … If you are not up to date with who Jeff Beck is .. (and no, that’s a different ‘Beck’ that does Loser and Two Turntables and a Microphone) .. he is associated with Yardbirds (Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page) The Jeff Beck Group (Rod Stewart, Ron Wood and Nicky Hopkins) .. and many solo efforts on his own and for others! I started a thread about Jeff Beck .. HERE

Anyway … For this meme, I loaded up my Musicmatch with Jeff Beck songs and picked all of my songs while listening to his music. I have deleted the last Meme’s picks from my server, and have included these songs for your listening enjoyment until the next Meme!

Here are my choices…

    WHAT!?!JeffBeck. I think DC5 before JB. Hell I think Petula Clark before Jeff Beck.

    What or who is DC5? When I do a search I get this … DC5 .. is a 100 or 200 Horsepower Sinusoidal Regenerative Converter

    Joe – you should give Jeff Beck a listen .. Freeway Jam is another great song .. Going Down .. there’s a gajillion songs of his. Did you know they based a character on the Spinal Tap movie after Jeff Beck?

    DC5 = Dave Clark Five
    see http://www2.excelr8.net/allowell/dcf.html
    The difference between The Beatles and Dave Clark Five was the latter owned all there songs right from the start. “And I’m feelin’ (drum beat) glad all over “
