Lightbulb Trouble

This week back on November 27, 1981 Trouble was 2 spaces ahead of Leather and Lace and running up the chart. Trouble was at #16 and Leather and Lace at #18 with Quarterflash between them.
Alan Hunter said something I was not aware of about Trouble. Mick plays drums but Lindsey was not happy with the way it sounded. Lindsey then took a 4 second loop from Mick's drumming and extended it through the entire song. Lindsey then added the additional percussion to the song.
I can hear that loop. It adds a hypnotic effect to the song, no? Wonder what Mick thought about Lindsey editing his drumming.

I remember Trouble appears in a scene of Just One of the Guys movie. It's a 1985 movie so after 4 years it was kind of unexpected to find that song in a movie, and a nice surprise.

That is one of my all time favorite 80s movies. That scene is so funny and the song fits the mood perfectly. The girl reaches into her crotch and pulls out a sock.

See if you can dig up the Jim Ladd Innerview with Lindsey in 1981. Lindsey explains the process of the looping. Mick laid down a complete track but they were both not fully happy with it. So they and Dicky (Dicky Dashut) took a stretch of tape equivalent to about eight or ten seconds and taped it into itself right when the bass drum comes down. They said the end result still had Mick’s signature creep and sounded like an organic track.

It was that interview where Lindsey explains how he replicated the classic three-instrument jazz combo on “Love from Here, Love from There.” (Jazz bands used to chart three-horn or four-horn combo arrangements in the years before bebop.) So he figured out a way to use different guitars and playing techniques to sound like the trumpet (or cornet), trombone, and clarinet (woodwinds are sometimes grouped as horns in jazz bands).

The other thing he mentions that’s interesting is why there are no lyrics printed for “Shadow of the West.” The lyrics got sent to the printer too late!

I was watching a movie the other day -- I think it was Who Framed Roger Rabbit? - and there was a reference to September Song. Obviously an earlier version, not Lindsey's cover. Although, it was a Bob Zemeckis movie...

It's been done by several artists.
