PostSubject: Unofficial B.S.O. Academy Awards (Suggestions)   Thu Feb 21, 2008 7:39 pm

Since it’s “Awards Season” and the B.S.O. didn’t win the Grammy (they were robbed), maybe it’s high time that we, the fans, had our say in the proceedings. Being that the Oscars are this weekend, several movies and actors I’ve never heard of will undoubtedly win awards, while others weren’t even nominated (e.g. Keith Richards as Captain Teague for Best Supporting Actor). Therefore in honor of musicians in the movies, specifically Brian’s role as Eddie Cochran in La Bamba, and since there have been a few posts in this forum about song suggestions and lists, I’d like to present for everyone’s entertainment my unofficial B.S.O. Academy Awards (Studio Recordings 1994-2007):

Best start to a song (As in, when the song starts, it just kicks you in the gut and makes you listen, could be based on a 1-10, like, 1 being any Kanye West song, 10 being IGNITION!)

Take the 5th

I have to write in for duet, Joe Strummer on Guitar Slinger. That song rocks. (Where is the US release of this album? I loan my import copy to the wrong guy and I haven't seen it in years....)
