I'd give an example, but I can't think of any! I'm looking for some of the best solo careers out there, and to learn more about artists than I know now. Have at it!

discussion Who in your opinion is deserving of the title ‘musical genius’?

Upvotes

There’s so many ways to go about looking at this one. Obviously going as far back as classical music, all of those folks were up there, especially Mozart.

Then you’ve got jazz greats like Duke Ellington, Miles, Coltrane, etc…

And with the era of pop and rock music you have amazing artists like Brian Wilson, the Beatles, Stevie Wonder

And after that you have the development of alternative music forms which gave rise to even more multidimensional sounds and creators. Hip hop also enters the discussion as well.

My absolute faves are Coltrane, Miles, Brian Wilson, John & Paul, Stevie, Thom Yorke, and Q Tip

discussion Songs from both sides of the same relationship

68 Upvotes

One of Bob Dylan's most admired songs, Visions of Johanna, is widely believed to be about his relationship with Joan Baez, while Baez's standout ballad Diamonds and Rust is about her breakup with Dylan. Listening to them back-to-back is really interesting, and gives a much richer portrait of their partnership.

Are there other examples of pairs of songs like this? I know there's a whole hip-hop subgenre of diss-track feuds, but what about songs inspired by more substantial relationships?

Idc what genre it is. Everything works, metal, rock, rap, pop etc. It should just sound evil and maybe have dark lyrics.
