The Phantom sort of reminded a bit of Joy Division.

Well, I knew the music was not anything like Morrison would have behind him, but the voice was quite similar.

@glenn: 'Twill be interesting if he can best Madeleine Peyroux's cover of I’m Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter.
Sat. 1/28/12 10:47am Scott:
Thanks Bob, since you the string theme/thread, I've been paying more attention, and almost always beautiful horn arrangement accompany the strings. Lately bass lines have been my obsession, Gene Chandlers 'Groovy Situation' is a good example. Joe Osborn, Leland Sklar, of course the incredible James Jamerson. Paul had more than a few brilliant moments too
Sat. 1/28/12 10:53am glenn:
my favourite current bass line is mr. giant man. (fabio's theme)
Sat. 1/28/12 10:57am Mike East:
@glenn - that bass line makes me want to start a band just to cover that song so I can play bass.
Sat. 1/28/12 10:59am kat330:
Ta-ta and thanks for all the frogs!
