    Tubular Bells is incredibly amazing. I felt so many emotions while listening to it. Mike Oldfield is a genius. I especially like the part where Vivian Stanshall lists the different instruments before they are played near the end on part one.

    yeah, my fav. is the part near the middle of Pt. 1 with the "guitar solo" just gets me in an upbeat mood everytime i hear it

    Never need to rhyme it just helps the catchiness of the lyrics I tend to rhyme when it is needed, but some story songs do not need rhymes

    Did I post here last night? I'm retracing what I did to people... :( So far alcohol made me tell many people on Facebook that I'd shag Vladimir Putin, write all over my arms, do kareoke and... I don't remember :(

    3/4's of a 70cl bottle of vodka, I've gotten weaker. Still, I think I had fun.

    I ate all my cheese though... :(

    Cheese is good

    Random Opinion:
    The easiest way to venture into new genres is to take a genre you listen to and find bands that blend it with the genre you are trying to get into (worked for me and death Prog.)

    That's what I do, often, so I'll back you up here.

    Everything I wrote until a few months ago rhymed and it was all awful, save for one set of lyrics where the rhymes just kind of came naturally.

    Yeah, I dislike rhyming normally. I'll rhyme in lyrics when it feels right, which can be surprisingly often when I imagine the songs they would fit into, but for poetry and such, I prefer to avoid it.

    I try not to do overrhyming. I usually like to tell a story with my lyrics. I have also never written a "true" love song.

    Agreed. But Geddy Lee > Chris Squire

    I definitely agree with both statements. I had always liked Steely Dan, but after getting into Traffic (prog: psych, jazz fusion), I started getting more into Steely Dan (full on jazz rock) and enjoying all their music. Now that I think about it, Dream Theater might have helped me get more into prog. I had always liked metal and bands like Yes, but I didn't know much about prog before I listened to DT. They made me discover that I LOVE long songs with varying themes and instrumental breaks

    No just no Chris Squire is about equal to Geddy Lee, but is definitely the better of the two

    Dream Theater is not even close to one of the best examples of Prog.

    I mean no offense man, but Squire has his less complicated moments while Geddy always kept his line of the same complexity for the most part.

    I mean take this to this (Also if you want to learn some Chris Squire bass lines starting out, I recommend this as one of the tracks).

    Then take this to this

    I'm just saying keep that in mind. :)

    then there are the really complex moments like this and this as well as most of his stuff from Drama which I have to say surprised me

    Ah Drama shouldn't surprise you. :) Chris was the leader of the band at that point and probably had more room to put some awesome stuff in the songs. I was just saying Geddy is a very good bassist in my opinion, he can tango with Squire. :cool:

    If the 2 worked together I could see something good out of it Geddy's voice and keyboard skills would work well with Chris's basslines or duo bass :D

    I find both your custom title and post-count snubbing to be quite juvenile.

    Well what can you do? Amateur administration (or in this case moderator faculty) will be amateurish / childish. However, why do they assume deleting my post count hurts my ego or anything of that sort?

    I come here to talk and state my opinion, not get invisible numbers that don't matter. :)

    That would be cool, the influence(Squire) and the results(Lee) working together. :D Don't forget that Chris does backing vocals, an important quality to Yes' sound. Their vocals together would be interesting to say the least.
