Songs of the Day

Foxey Lady:  I love this song - it is oh so addicting.  Another one of the more famous tunes, and understandably so.  I can only think of Wayne's World every time I hear it though - what a fantastic scene in movie history - which means I think of Dana Carvey...weird.  Gotta love the cut to Jimi on "foxey lady" - oh so sexy.  The hits really make it for me, so much power in them.  Great B section.  This whole song is just a sexyjamfunk that I'm in love with.

Are You Experienced?:  Man, Outkast straight took this intro for "Miss Jackson," or at least it sounds that way.  Love the backwards record sound, it gives a very cool psychadelic/hip-hop feel - these cats were ahead of their time, most definitely.  Dig the single repeated note on the piano - funky.  Cool "drummer boy" feel with the snare.  Awesome guitar solo - Jimi, you are just too much.

 Stone Free:  The first 5 seconds of this song reminds me of the beginning "I Feel Fine" by The Beatles, and their my favorite band, so I'm totally down with that.  Oh hey cowbell, you are very prominent - I can get down with it though.  I like how low everything is on the verses for this tune, getting a little crazier and bringing it up in the chorus.  Man, Mitch Mitchell is some serious trouble on the drums - he holds that shit dooooown.

51st Anniversary:  So far, this may be my least favorite, but that's in comparison to some really great tracks, so it doesn't mean much in the larger spectrum.  I do really like the chord progression, and the pace - especially how it slows down and picks up and what not.  I think it may be too similar to some of the other tracks - that may be what it is.  I dig that everyone's kind of doing their own thing, but they still blend well.  Still a solid track.
