Don't know about you, but I'm not going to try and put gallons of water into a container that might break. So just like in real life, be careful with that sledgehammer. It's heavy and if not used properly, you could accidentally break something important.
Feel free to use it on Scott though. I'd like him to cut trees, but I don't always want him to clear cut the Amazon either. Showing 1 - 2 of 2 comments. But the noise gate cuts the sound off when the amplitude falls below a certain threshold.
When you combine reverb and the gate, you get a big, spacious sound that still snaps as tightly as a dry snare. Peter Gabriel uses this sound quite a bit, but most of us will forever associate it with his former Genesis bandmate Phil Collins.
The bass is played by another legendary session musician, Tony Levin , and it too has an alienated synthetic quality. The synth-like sound is the result of fretless slides and the sub-octave effect, and the pick gives the sound its sharp attack. As with the drums, the bassline is so on time that it almost sounds sequenced. But no, Tony Levin is just really, really tight. The guitar is definitely a background element, mixed well behind the horns and synths.
Peter is a charismatic and distinctive singer, though not a technically proficient one. His pitch is distinctly imperfect, and had this been recorded today, he would probably have gotten some Auto-Tune. I like the shaky pitch, though; it keeps the song from being too glossily perfect. I disagree; I hear that first phrase as part of the intro.
Either way, by a minute in, the first verse is definitely underway. The harmony is totally static, just a funk groove on Eb Mixolydian , with the guitars and synth riffing along. At , we arrive at a dramatic chord change to Db. Brad and Alex consider this to be a new section, the prechorus. I hear it as still being part of the verse, partially because the chorus is still a ways off. At , we enter what Brad and Alex consider to be verse two, and what I consider to be the second half of verse one.
The real change comes at , when we finally arrive at the first chorus. Almost two minutes is an extremely long time to wait for a hook. A lot of pop songs would practically be over by now! The funky, infectious groove helps too.
Do I have to list the relevant euphemisms for sex that use the word "bump"? Open up your fruit cakes, Where the fruit is as sweet as can be. Third, the wind-up and the pitch It could also mean getting out of a rut for the "new stuff" of adventure.
You can even take that a couple of ways--emotionally and Am I just dirty minded, or is Pete really hitting this sex theme hard--like a sledgehammer? The new stuff he goes dancing in he just shed his skin is Ye Olde Birthday Suit. He's nekked, and he's looking for trouble! I will show for you. It seems that I might have been right. But as much crap that gets put into song about sex, this song doesn't have a "dirty" feel to it--it's almost a one-on-one party.
Very clever and oddly wholesome musical expression of sexual intimacy. General Comment I'd be willing to bet money there's quite a few "born in the autumn of '86" babies who were conceived to this song. General Comment This song is about sex. And sex is fun. That's it. The music video illustrates this quite clearly, as well. General Comment A lot of people critics, et al have pointed this out: "So" the album this song comes from was the first of Gabriel's albums to show his face unobscured.
It was as if, for the first time, he was discovering that he was a fairly good-looking man--he had been ashamed of his face before and hiding it from the world.
