"favorite MUSICAL moment on Voodoo!!!!!"


  

          

Okay ... I been listening to Voodoo non-stop since it dropped, and like that other big Voodoo post up right now (I forgot to look at who wrote it) I hear something new every time I listen.

Now ... in response to ?uest's journal entry about European's being more MUSICALLY appreciative (and not just waiting for D' to get butt nekkid on stage), I was wondering what y'alls favorite MUSICAL moment was on the album. Now that we've had some time to let all the nuances sink into our souls ... what's the Musical moment that just melts you ... that get's you saying "oh yeah ... here we go!"

For me, although there are countless brilliant moments on this album, my favorite moment comes in greatdayinnamornin, right at the transition to the final segment. Its those dirty drums just setting us up for "make love in the morning ... the morning. pray to god in the morning ... the morning ..." that get me hyped, head bobbin like Sly Stone be shakin it. That transition kills me ...

How 'bout y'all?

love and respect,
El Rey

It's kind of hard to pick one, because everytime I listen to it, I hear something that I didn't before. But I guess if I had to pick one, it would be on "The Root", the whole repeating breakdown is just on some next ish! I don't smoke weed, but if I did, this is something that I would have to listen to, along with anything by Jimi Hendrix.

You know I'm all over this post... can't pick just one. Here are a couple small details I've been digging this week (cuz you know Voodoo is played at least once a day...):
- The keys on the last last last rap on Left & Right... they're like these funky vibe keys, outlining this chord transitions that you don't hear the rest of the song... I hadn't caught those until about a month ago, and now I shit bricks when I hear them

- Send It On... around the five minute twenty second mark, the horns come in. Not very monumental right? Well, we just came out of this gospel vocal 'oohs' in the background, the guitar just pushed this fancy smooth riff.... everything's perfect, and the horns put a crown on this king of a song.

- Greatday... the very last part of this deal is my favorite part of the album... about six minutes fifty five second mark, get the whole 'duh duh duh' funkyasshit melody... you don't understand how happy it makes me...

Today's a voodoo day already, I can feel it...

-thebigfunk

"Genuine beauty is always quite alarming." - 'The Secret History'

"Aloofness is a cardinal sin in an age when a perplexed humanity eagerly turns to its writers and thinkers, and demands of them attention to, if not the cure of, its woes and wounds..." - Nabokov's "The Real Life Of Sebastian Knight"

Devil's Pie...his vocals at the very beginning. That shit is so freaky-deaky. They send chills down my spine. I was thrilled when he had his backing vocalists repeat that riff over and over at the show. Then at the 4:55 mark, those horns come in and start playing the fucking BASS riff??? I love it.

Left & Right...at 3:18 he sucks air through his teeth and says "Keep doin it baby" and Redman says "Talk to me, baby", then they go into the bridge & the rap. I lose it every time I hear that. It's hard for me to not get up and dance.

Send It On...at 5:23 when those horns come in and the backing vox hit the "oooh"s..totally majestic. They must have been chanting or meditating or praying or something when they recorded that one. That song was kissed by God.

Chicken Grease...I love the P-Funk style vocals on "To get to the other side of the rooooooooa-oooooh-d", and of course that chicken grease guitar. And the 1st time they break it down and he says "I know you love me cuz I'm funky". You know what I'm saying.

The Root...the whole damn song, like Fire said. But especially the last chorus with all those repetitions. It hit me hard one day on the bus...I started crying and shit. I don't know what my problem was. The root?

Spanish Joint..."Something, something inside of meeeeeeeeeee" after the amazing guitar solo all the way until the end of the song. That whole thing gives me goose bumps. Why, oh why didn't they do this song live??????

Untitled...The bridge is amazing. THIS song deserves a Grammy. Dig the bass at the 6:33 mark!!! When Raphael just starts thumping on it like some Larry Graham shit. And have you noticed how gorgeous the piano is throughout the song?

Damn. I love this record.

overall it's mostly vocals that are hitting me here, because d' uses them like strings, and it KILLS me. the vocal intro to the line is the first that comes to mind
in the root: "left a dirty stain in my heart" first time i heard that line i think i literally screamed.
greatdayinnamornin: everybody already said it, but the dirty drums
untitled: in the vibed out bridge part (you know, the part that's NOT in the radio edit), there's one single snare hit that's just DRENCHED in reverb. it feels like an indication of a change to come, and sure enough, the song builds and builds again and then BAM, mid climax, it's over, right in the middle of it all
i'll be back with more though, i'm sure.

There are soo many moments like this where there'll be ONE snare hit that is different from the rest of the song. That ish convinced me of ?uestlove's genious (not like I needed convincing, but after Voodoo, I got even more respect ...).

this record makes me cry cuz of its beauty.

The Root: the "backwards" solo, of course! plus the sick layers of vocals that, as has been previously mentioned, just tear up my insides

Feel Like Makin Love: Besides the fact that there's a nice long intro that repeats once before the vocals come in, I *LOVE* the moment when the band comes to a full stop on one of the beats, then keeps flowing flawlessly

The Stevie Wonder Interlude....brilliant

I meant to include that moment in my list. I don't know why I'm always effected when I come across something like that. Like in Com's "Time Travelin". That pause is a little long, but it's just as cool.

..my Shield and Sword. Whew!! The Root is priceless.


Chicken Grease - "...Like that old bucket of Crisco that sitting on top of the stove...simmer, simmer".... - just the timing of when D says the words is damn cool. That "staticky", far away pitch/tone of his voice is damn cool.

Playa, Playa - "...We came here to rip sh*t, make ya'll scream and shout". This cut is bad in itself. I think it gives the "overtone" of what to expect from the whole album - it's going to make your scream, make you shout, make you dance, make you cry... "Drummer's drumming right"...big ups to ?uest..."We gon' turn this mother out..." Can't nobody step to D - the man is in a class all by his lonesome.

...And what about "Africa"? The music, the words, the subject - just beautiful. Only three musicians/singers stick out in my mind when it comes to Odes to their children: Stevie Wonder ("Isn't She Lovely"), Babyface ("The Day") and now D with this captivating song to his children. Each time I hear it and I'm with my two-year old son, I just sit and stare at him. Man, he touches so many hearts. I hope he truly knows this.

That's all for now. Gotta put Voodoo in now...

17. "Voodoo..."
In response to Reply # 0


          

has some of the best musicianship I have ever heard (maybe cuz I'm not that old and haven't really explored "The Masters" as much as the rest of you have)...my favorite moments are:

Playa Playa: about 1:07 into the song, there's this little cymbal slide thing that I listen to everytime, then I usually change tracks. The buildup to that one little cymbal note is just perfect. That one hit then starts off the rest of the song, a smooth horn arrangement

The breakdown from "Devil's Pie" into "Left and Right" is just really damn cool. hehe

The entire percussion line of "Chicken Grease" is perfection. Damn, that song is just awesome. the Chicken Grease of "Chicken grease" fits in perfectly. Some ppl complained that it was mixed in too low, but I thought the volume of it was just perfect. Didnt really distract but was noticeable enough to be an important part of the song.

Guitar solo in "Spanish Joint" made me scream the first time I heard it. That song was the only thing that could make me happy for a month. Just listening to it would make me happy. SOmething about the congas and the drums on it were amazing...lifted my spirits.

18. "Basslines.."
In response to Reply # 0


          

There are some nice basslines on this album....but one of my favs parts is in greatday...listen to it and at 2:15 when the chorus starts up again....Pino (I think it's Pino playing on this song) does this amazing thing where he makes the bass vibrate. It's got this vibrato ish going on that just drives me crazy...he does it all thru the song, but when he does it at that part where the chorus starts up just gets me geeked.

Peace,
Phil

21. "Africa"
In response to Reply # 20


          

Knowing that the song is for his son...I believe the bells or chiming sound that flows in the chorus is representing one of those small bedside music boxes that plays when you open it. I listen to this song and imagine d'angelo singing this song softly to himself as he peeps in on his son sleeping...the ending of the song is like the a fade into the mind of his son as the melody continues to soothe him long after father has left the room.....just a thought.CED

23. "RE: Africa"
In response to Reply # 21


          

Hell yeah! That song is so damn beautiful--the music and the lyrics. It's my favorite on the album and of everything he's ever recorded. The first verse just blows me away.

The Root -of course the layered ending.

One Mo'gin -bass line in the beginning. So fuckin sexy.

Spanish Joint -the horns. Love when he says "don't look back. handle that."

Greatday... -love when he says "gotta tighten up." on that part I always raise both of my fists up to my chest and shake them once. Even if I'm driving. I don't know why.

Chicken Grease -the end when he keeps repeating "I know the shit if funky cause I see the way you move your soul." I didn't know that's what he was saying until I saw the live version on All That. This song reminds me of Teddy Pendergrass' "Get Up, Get Down." They don't sound alike, but they give off the same vibe.

Playa Playa- the music is just so damn funky.

I could go on forever, but I won't. sorry couldn't just name one thing. that's impossible.

Yeah, the first time I heard those horns, I thought, "that ish is so subtle ... so IN CONTROL ... he'll never be able to pull that off live." Now, seein as though I still ain't seen my man live, I still can see how those horns are locked DOWN after peeping the MTV awards performance.

Also, the first time I "heard" the drums on Left and Right I got all excited (I finally could listen to the song and not be so offended).

It is hard to just pick one. I have at least three that gets to me.

I don't know why but everytime I listen to Africa I get this feeling that unexplainable(is that a word??).

I can't help but to love Greatdayndamornin' the way it leads to the end of the song. "Pray to God", "Smoke some......" Ooh wee!!!

Now there is The Root. I think the song explains itself.

"Please give us strength, Lord, to fight our battles. And we can walk on the streets of gold." "D'ANGELO"

"SMACK YOUR ASS PULL YOUR HAIR" "D'ANGELO"

FrenchST99: 200? you are a real collector. what is your favorite
TeeCole1: well my favorite is my Common collection
FrenchST99: who is Common?
TeeCole1: Are you seriuos you don't know who Common is???? does Common Sense ring a bell.
FrenchST99: name some of their songs
TeeCole1: well actually it just one and he sung Breaker 1/9, and off his new album The Light and the 6th sense, he has alot of songs
TeeCole1: Once you hear them you will probally know then

Wow, I just saw him live a week ago, so it is really hard for me to narrow this down to absolute fave moments that I have been inhaling for the past six months or so, BUT-

-The climax of Untitled just makes me want to smack somebody. In a good way =)

-The end of the Root brings me back to the trance-like moment in church when you don't even realize people are sitting next to you in the pew.

-Spanish Joint- This track is the reason I had to buy another copy, because the disk kept skipping from repeated play. Enough said.

Damn- Imma go put that ish on.

Much Peace,

It seems that with this album for a week or two I always listen to the smae few songs over and over again, and then I remember how tight the rest of the album is and starting listening to a different few songs over and over....
It kills me that this album hasn't gotten the respect that it deserves from most of America. But then again, most of America is so stupid that it can't recognize the effin' genius of this album.
As far as favorite musical joints go, I gotta go with...
-First part in Playa when the horns come in. Its building up and then all the sudden I wanna be stampin' my feet, bobbing up and done and acting like a crazy fool.
-ALL of The Root, Spanish Joint, and Greatdayindamonin'. Charlie Hunter is just great on these tracks. I just sit there with my mouth hangin' open if I'm not jiving.
Genius pure unadulterated genius.

In response to Reply # 0


          

My favorite moment by far is on The Root, during the last two minutes where the chorus builds and builds with layers of vocals. I heard that shit one time and it put tears in my eyes.

After that, damn, just the rest of the album.

All's I got to say is cats like Eric Benet, Maxwell and Rahsaan Patterson's albums better be the jawn from now on. They got to be on point to keep up with D'angelo

1Love,

There's too many to name just one. I know some have been mentioned, but oh well, I like 'em too.

Playa Playa - that the best song to start off with. And I gotta agree with everyone that mentioned the bass in this one

Devil's Pie - I love the chorus and how he ends it. ("I don't give a f*ck/I ain't goin' out fo")

Left and Right - the lyrics and the guitar.

The Line - his voice. At times he reminds me of Curtis Mayfield.

Send it On - Of course, the horns and when he says "So my life may be the one reason why"

Chicken Grease - I love cause it's funky.

One Mo'gin - The Bass!

The Root - I don't know now. Every time I listen to this song I hear something new in the background that I love.

Spanish Joint - I'm glad this one is after The Root. It lifts my spirits to the point where I'm grinning and laughing.

Feel Like Makin' Love - When he lets his voice get low and says "oohh babyyy"

Greatdayndamornin' - I love the end when the drums and the bass start gettin' heavy.

Untitled - the guitar and "Yeahh Yeahh"

Africa - The bells. Sometimes I'll play this at night song as my lullaby. And it works for me. I can fall right to sleep.

In response to Reply # 0


          

that "the root" is the ish? i was mesmerized by the entire project for the first week or so but, on 02/05, when i finally REALLY heard "the root" i had to take a seat... in front of the speakers...for i don't even know how many repeats... this song gives me chills every time i listen to it...the guitar work if pure Jimi (happy to say i experienced that musical era firsthand), the imagery in the lyrics is incredible and you can FEEL this man's pain... "my soul is empty, my blood is cold and i can't feel my legs...i need someone to hold me and bring me back to life before i'm dead"... DAAAYUM!!!

my personal favorite and daily devotion is still "greatdayndamornin", as evidenced by the fact that i won't leave home without at least one listen... this song gives me strength daily... spiritual food for the soul, hellabangin' music for the ears!

"one mo'gin" has deeply personal meaning to me - i won't bore you all with the story but the song will always have a special place in my heart...

i could go on and on, but above are my standouts...

D'Angelo, thank you for SO blessing us all!

Rozjack, 8/4... soon and very soon... we need a rollcall for all LA OKPs who will be in the house!

In response to Reply # 0


          

and attempt to isolate parts of the album. It doesn't work. When a friend of mine hears it for the first time, I often find myself, after the first four songs (when Send It On starts) saying "and from here on, the album is untouchable, you just can't fuck with this..."

But then I want to change it. Because can anyone really fuck with the nasty horns and grit of Playa...? Or that genuine Primo beat, and the high pitched descending squeal (whateva the eff that is) in Devil's Pie? The keys (mentioned in my first reply) and superfunkycalifragisexy lyrics of Left & Right? Or the meandering, jam-with-the-band-on-a-saturday-night style of "The Line"? Dammit, you can't. You can't fuck with any of this album. It's still the number one release of this year, bar none. It's still my ish. Just thought I'd share.

After my first, say, 20 listens or so, I started playing the album at track 5 - just because L&R can get on my nerves, and the other's aren't *quite* up to the level of SIO thru Africa...

But now that I give Voodoo the intense listen every time in the hopes of catching something new, I've gone back to the first four songs. I still prefer the ones starting with Send It On - like you said, it's untouchable -

but now i'm all about the HOLISTIC Voodoo!

Not necessarily for its original topic... more than anything, just cuz this is just some Voodoo Appreciation ish.

Voodoo is one of the best ALBUMS in my collection... by that, I mean it works as a whole piece, as well as a song by song deal. It's best heard from the beginning to the end... Playa Playa as its intro, Africa as its winding down piece.

The transitions are so smooth. The same atmosphere permeates the entire piece, it feels like one giant meandering composition. (Oddly enough, my mind jumps to the musical Ragtime, which feels like one giant really really good song to me )

It never feels choppy. Even going from slower pieces to faster pieces... (The Root to Spanish Joint, Chicken Grease to One Mo Gin).

Dammit, another Voodoo day.

seein the state of the boards these days, I'm glad this thread can be an island of sanity and beauty in the midst of the madness.

This thread makes me smile like something lost can be found.
