Are there any singers who add little “interjections” like what Michael Jackson did?

For example: “Shamone!” or “Hee Hee!” or “Ow!” are some things Michael Jackson added to his vocals. Are there any classic rock vocalists that are known for unique words/interjections added into their singing?

Supertramp - where are these guys?

I'm serious. I know Roger toured solo since they broke up, but my god it's been like 40+ years, even KISS and Slash/ Axl got back together? What's the big beef between Roger/ Supertramp and have we missed that reunion boat?

Tell me some good Peter Frampton songs

Peter frampton is someone I always wanted to get into but never really understood the hype. Frampton comes alive is good but I haven’t listened to much outside that.

His biggest charting hit I’m in you is dreadful lol i hear he’s a great artist but I haven’t seen that just yet. Any recommendations for his 70s and 80s songs that show his guitar skills? Or are just got songs.

thank you to this community for helping me make my dad’s last days special

i recently posted on here asking for music recommendations to play for my dad while he was comatose and on his deathbed. y’all recommended so much incredible music that i was able to share with him. he passed away last night, peacefully and surrounded by family, and i feel at peace knowing that the last days of his life were spent listening to his favorite music. and now i have a playlist that i can put on whenever i want to remember him. thank you from the bottom of my heart <3

Why is the Yellow Submarine album so hated

I totally get the criticism about the album and how it’s not really a Beatles album with only four new songs and they’re throwaway songs or it’s just a soundtrack album that the Beatles appear on and etc

But does it really matter to criticize a album like this because give it credit because the four new songs are still Beatles tracks and they’re varied great to okay tracks even if they are throwaway tracks which considering the actual the production of the making of the album because YS crosses between three other Beatles albums which are Sgt Pepper and MMT and ofc The White Album Also the George Martin orchestral score isn’t the best side b but Pepperland and the Sea of Holes are interesting listens even if they’re just film scores

Does Robert Palmer occupy a significant space in classic rock?

I’ve spent decades listening to 94.7 WCSX since they first played “Old time Rock n Roll” by Bob Seger back in ‘87. I’m a repeat classic rock trivia champ. I have countless classic rock playlists. And I had no idea until recently that Robert Palmer existed in the music landscape prior to winning a Grammy in the 80´s for those VERY artistic sings that had really great music videos.

Am I missing something? Is Robert Palmer a mainstay of the classic rock landscape that I’ve just missed? Or does he just show up in a few footnotes from larger, far more recognizable acts?

Any insight on this would great.

Ventura Highway - YouTube Music

I think it's a better version than the single.

Need help identifying guitar lick in Cars song

So I heard "You're All I've Got Tonight" on the radio today. I've heard it many times before but never until now noticed that exactly 3:20-3:24 there's a guitar lick that I'm SURE is quoting/paying homage to some other guitar lick/riff/solo from somewhere in the annals of rock. It's super familiar but I can't place it, and now it's killing me. If you know where this lick is from, let me know!

help me make a playlist for my dying dad to listen to?

my dad is dying of a brain tumor. at this point he is completely bedridden, mostly unresponsive, receiving hospice care until he passes (which will probably be in the next few days). i’ve been sitting with him and softly playing some music for a couple hours every day, because he enjoyed music and i’d want someone to play music for me if i was bedridden like that.

i need ideas for songs i can add to the playlist. he enjoys classic rock, i know he likes elton john, ozzy osbourne, led zeppelin, david bowie, alice cooper, rainbow, and many more that i’m forgetting. one of his favorite movies is the blues brothers. i don’t know much about this era of music (gen z) but i’d like to play songs for him that are nostalgic, uplifting, soothing, beautiful singing and instrumentals, that he will find comfort in while he slips in and out of consciousness. i appreciate any recommendations i can get, i will research the music myself but i’m running out of time and i’d love a little help.

Song Pairs

What are your favorite song pairs that MUST be played together? In today's digital DJ world (SiriusXM, YouTube Music, Spotify, etc), it's so frustrating when the virtual DJs are not trained to play linked songs together. I'll start with Feeling That Way / Anytime and then hang up and listen to your callers.
