Are there any Rufus Wainwright fans here? I have been a huge fan of his for many years and am really looking forward to buying his record this week! I am sure it will be fantastic just like all of the rest have been.

 

I also found out last night that he is, indeed, going to be touring in my home state, so I am so happy about that! I got into Rufus right when my boyfriend and I began dating, so his music is special to us. We're excited at the idea of finally getting to see him perform his songs live. :)

 

So anyone else? Favorite record? Or favorite song? Discuss!

 

I must say I adore 14th Street!

Yeah, my bf does have good taste (dare I say it's because of me...? LOL! kiddinggg! ;) ) Oh, and I am exactly the same. Talking about different musicians and my favorite music is what I love to do. I guess the internet is really good for discussing these things in particular!

and yes...the web is a great place for great music disscussion, but i love getting into it with other ppl...i can pretty much tell u everything you'll ever need to know about U2 and (deep breath) QUEEN!

 

some of Turners lyrics are genuis...

 

"Everybody's trying to crack the jokes and that to make you smile

Those that claim that they're not showing off are drowning in denial

They're not half as bad as me say anything and I'll agree

When it comes to acting up, I'm sure I could write the book"

oh, you are awesome....LOL! Yeah, I do love Gwen (especially with No Doubt) and Queen is actually my all-time favorite band!! So I guess we could both share stories about them since we're probably both miniature experts concerning them. ;)

 

Um, other bands I love would be the Killers (just saw them last Friday and it was awesomeeeee)... umm...Mika, of course... :) I also love Elton John, Hot Hot Heat, the Beatles, Lily Allen (though I find her kind of annoying as a human being...ahem), Franz Ferdinand, ELO, Boston, Keane, Rufus! (lol), Relient K, Sherwood, Del Amitri, Muse, the Pretenders, the Bee Gees, the Goo Goo Dolls, Brian Setzer Orchestra....and that's all I can think of!

 

You? :)

 

Oh, and those lyrics are good! I'm interested to see what sort of melody goes along with the lyrics.

Did you know No Doubt is reuniting in 2008?? The band has said numerous times that after Gwen's concert, they'll be going into the studio...CAN'T WAIT!!

 

What's this about Lily Allen??? She's in the news all the time....she seems like a spoiled brat, but I can't help but like her songs...lol.. I was going to go to her show (bought tickets and everything) and then she cancelled her US tour. *growl*

 

I like the ones on your list too! Old school is the best. I think that's one thing I love about Mika. He's got a classic rock thing about him that is so appealing. :)

I am sort of new to Rufus Wainwright. Me and lexilovesmika02 have a teacher who introduced me to Rufus's music early last month and I absolutly love him. I mean his vocals are pure genius.

 

Glad to see another fan! And I agree about his vocals. I think he is so underrated (at least here in the US). I am shocked that he is still a fairly unknown artist. I hope this tour helps him out though. That's one thing he has lacked, I think - touring in the US.

Thats one of the reasons I love him so much to...old school Pop/Rock with a modern flare...ver very appealing!!! (thanks Mika!)

 

WELL THAT LILY ALLEN KID IS IN THE US...AND SHE FLIPPED OUT ON MYSPACE...AGAIN!!!

 

check out her blog...she said she "spent the whole night crying about how fat she was...blah blah blah..." whatever she was probally super drunk..go on perezhilton.com he's got all the details

 

she also went all out on Winehouse...but I don't like her...she was a B**** TO BONO...didn't stand up for his acceptance speech...he went out of his way to intoduce himself to her and she refused to shake his hand!!! (grrrr)

 

:biggrin2: oh yeah...NO DOUBT...IT'S BEEN SOOO LONG!!!! I new they where gonna get back together I read all that stuff!!!":biggrin2:

 

come to think of it they never really broke up in the first place

Even though he has five albums out what kinda holds an artist back in the US is a person's sexual orientation. I find that very sad because the only thing some people are care about is if people are homosexual and in the states that sometimes makes a big difference in someones career and that could partly be why. And the tour will probably launch him futher.
