Paul McCartney on Pet Sounds:

"It was later...it was Pet Sounds that blew me out of the water. First of all, it was Brian's writing. I love the album so much. I've just bought my kids each a copy of it for their education in life---I figure no one is educated musically 'til they've heard that album. I was into the writing and the songs.

...

I’ve often played Pet Sounds and cried. It's that kind of an album for me.

Paul McCartney on "God Only Knows":

"It's a really, really great song---it's a big favorite of mine. I was asked recently to give my top ten favorite songs for a Japanese radio station...I didn't think long and hard on it, but I popped that God Only Knows on the top of my list. [Thinks for a moment] It's very deep. [Quotes the lyrics to "God Only Knows"] Very emotional, always a bit of a choker for me, that one. There are certain songs that just hit home with me, and they're the strangest collection of songs...but that is high on the list, I must say."

Jeremy - I was thinking about this exact same thing.  Bioshock Infinite is so damn good, and the music is incredible -- especially this song and "Fortunate Son".

False. While Pet Sounds is outstanding...No.

I don't look at it as who was 'better' but without Pet Sounds you don't have Sgt. Pepper.

Not debating that Pet sounds didn't inspire the Beatles (more specifically Macca) to go in a different direction with their music and experiment with different sounds, styles, instruments and concepts...but the results that came out of the Beatles I'll take any day. Pet Sounds really is outstanding though.

Sure but that's where we get into subjective vs objective.

But my mom always told me I'm always right. Always have been.

Are we one of the top schools or do we have a long shot for him?

With Embiid going to the league it looks as though Kansas is the front runner at the moment.

I keep hearing the Longhorns are the leaders...

Bolt's picture

I'll be surprised if it's not Kansas. I don't see why he would've taken this long unless he was waiting to see if Embiid were staying or going.

Yeah especially since we got That center from VT. And someone mentioned why wait this long unless he was wanting to see what players are staying and going (which I totally agree with).. He knew what he would of had if he were to come here and play: a starting Center job.

There is nothing more remarkable as learning to think better.

The youtube link for embedding or adding url does not work for me

 

It says you must input a embed code or url

If you click "SHARE" in youtube, then click the embed option, copy that code, then come back here, select youtube, and paste the code in the embed option.

I'd say it's a long shot for us to land this guy. At least we picked up Lee, and Thompson

Come on Mr. Turner. We NEED you! (I know we have Lee and Thompson, but we need someone like Turner.)

If Embiid had stayed I think we might have had a decent chance but with him leaving I think it's even more than a long shot that he chooses tOSU but the amount of big men Thad has sent to the league and the fact that we truly need him compared to the other teams could help.

DaytonBuck1980's picture

Don't get me wrong, I love what Matta has done at OSU but to cite the amount of big men he has sent to the NBA is a little misleading. Oden, Mullens and Koufos were all known to be one and done before they arrived on campus. They would have went on to the NBA with or without Matta. If anything, I'd be more concerned with the lack of development by Amir and McDonald than I am pleased with the one and dones

Still not giving a damn for the whole state of Michigan.

If he was to hypothetically commit to KU they would easily have the best PF,SF,and center coming in anyone know how they are looking at the 1 and 2 spots?

From everything I've read recently, it's gonna be either Kansas or Texas.

When was the last time you looked at the recruiting bball this year? I say ranked in the top 5 means you are landing some great players.

Recruiting top rated big men has been an issue, but recruiting overall is not.

Hate to say it, but Amir was an extremely highly rated big man...

Trust me, I know. Duke, Florida, & Arizona, even offered him. And I was looking forward to having a McDonald's AA talent in the frontcourt, but...

My comment was based on missing on big man targets after Amir's recruitment.

HUGE longshot, but please-please-please pick the Buckeyes!!
