    Hopkins

    I find some of his stuff hard work, hard to penetrate, or to connect to, or in dubious taste, but then read something like that stanza from wreck of the Deutschland... I've been skimming John Updike's first novel this week and after reading some Hopkins I went back to it with a heightened...

    Music: the best bits

    Prodigy tunes are often a succession of "bits". Like in this one you don't get the nasty squelchy riff til about 2 mins 18 in.

    Music: the best bits

    Tom & Jerry - Maximum Style (1994) I think I've talked about this on here before. 1 minute 6 seconds in - the barnstorming bass has already kicked in but things go up a notch here with the singer hollering "Baby!" and this subtle but essential "Hey Hey!" baked into the breakbeat. These sounds...

    Music: the best bits

    A bit can recur (as my selections show) or it can happen just once. Although I dunno if I would accept a 'bit' that recurred again and again and again throughout a track... Maybe I would actually. Like a little sound in a loop that makes it brilliant.

    Music: the best bits

    I like how you've zoomed in on a 3 second bit here. I was concerned that my initial selection might mislead people. A 'bit' can be a second long, it can be 30 seconds long.

    Todd Edwards - Shut The Door 1 minute 28 seconds I'd consider this the bridge to the chorus (sue me if I'm wrong, howard goodall). There's that amazing intake of breath sound he's created before she sings "I know you don't like what I'm saying" and the strings(?) go up a notch, sounding...

    Bizarre Inc - Playing With Knives 1 minute 33 seconds in, something like a piano being played bottom to top in a millisecond to cue up someone pulling back the curtains in the squat party and letting in the blinding radiant perfect summer's day sun, the pure high note of ecstatic joy (like...
