I totally agree with you. I've tried Peter Hammill, notably songs like 'birds' on his 'foolmate' album...girls can't stop sheding tears

Essaye "The Love Songs"

Moi je craque lorsque Peter Hammill ou n'importe quel homme me dit :

"You're my favourite, you're the one than I love..."

Bonne chasse

RIGHT let me put that in my notebook........"Peter Hammill...Chick pulling music" I must learn french to, in that language you could say you were going to the toilet and it would still sound sexy and romantic!!

Some suggestions :

1 : Be sure the woman like music

2 : Be sure she desires listening music

3 : Be sure she likes prog

4 : Check you have not a bad breath

5 : Don't forget to offer her one's congratulation on her hair-dress

It was my free consultation

Hehe, what a surprise!! You should have tried the part "Soon" from Gates of Delirium, Relayer!!

When talking about Yes, their self-titled album from 1969 have a few "sweet" tracks, such as "I see you", "Every Little Thing" and "Sweetness". Lovely!!

i am not sure if it was the album that sent them screaming!!!

For me this a hypothetical questionbut if I ever had a woman alone in my house then I would try Yes 'And You And I' or Greg Lake's entire side on ELP's 'Works Vol One'. It's probably sensible though to have a Carpenter's record in reserve just in case she's not impressed by Rick Wakeman's mellotron playing!

Don“t waste your time, sometimes the lady doesn't like music, nor prog... but i have to say that i conquered my lady playing some MARILLION, and some Dream Theater tunes, like Beautiful, Kayleigh, Another day, Surrounded and wait for sleep, is a matter of trying some different records to find the right song, and then, put them in one great record for her!!!!

What kind of prog music do you think about to make love?

I've got my little idea about that...

Ladies of the Road worked for me once... 

Stone-headed Frisco spacer
Ate all the meat I gave her
Said would I like to taste hers
And even craved the flavour

Big smile

What can I say? She was quite impressionable.Wink

Yo bro, me too. Remember Jeannette from your Kithara days?

 

What about Dynamo Humm?

She was buns up kneelin'

I was wheelin' and Dealin'

She surrendered to the feelin'

Then she started into Squealin'

Freakin' poetry man!!!!!!!!!

This is a hard question, but I have some experience with it, since my gf likes prog.

Piper at the Gates of Dawn. Scarecrows and Gnomes can be fun, at a certain time and Sid's pretty tame compared to the crackheads in the music world nowadays. She'll think you're cute.

Moonchild. I think you know what I'm talking about. There's even a tranquil makeout section. Ladies of the Road's a little tough, you're not really a rockstar

Dark Side of the Moon, followed by The Division Bell.

And you and I is awesome. Also good is To be over, Wondrous Stories, and numerous Howe goings on. Guitar skills are sexy (so says she)

I actually listened to Eloy once (Mysterious Monolith) while making out but it was too much like some 80s trip out artsy thing and we had to shut them off.

  

Three Colours by Galleon is pretty awesome, that's a new one I just got.

Best prog pickup band overall? I would have to say: ELP. Still you turn me on, C'est la vie, Lucky Man, From the Beginning. They're all pretty chivalrous.

Iwould like to spend a dreamy and long night with a  & delicate girl, contempling the sky...with 'On land' (by Eno) or 'Evening star' (by Eno & Fripp) in the background. I'm sure it would be a fairy-like night.

A Change of Seasons has always seemed like a good doin-it song, and even better, some women love it! the only problem is, the song doesn't last as long as I do...


Posted By: dude
Date Posted: March 31 2004 at 21:07
SO the song needs an extra 8 seconds then!!(just kidding!)

I'm surprised, I actually met a girl who loved rush! We fell in love, but it didn't last that long, partly on account of her density.

Date Posted: March 31 2004 at 22:01
My cousin loves Rush but i dont think i would take that any further with her(shes 32 years old and single and a bit of a babe if anyones interested!!!)
