Badfinger appreciation thread
Chortle if you must, get it out of the way, but it is long overdue that this quintet are afforded their due.
We had mentions of various genres - hippie, glam, metal, punk and disco - ****, we had not just the musical but the FILM lauding ABBA's merits and you know what? It's about time appreciation was afforded to the power pop vehicle that is known as Badfinger. Of course, to the under 25's this may elicit the reaction of " uh, whatever" but hear me out. Deride the hairstyles, giggle at the terminally 70's fashions, but IMHO, had tragedy not so quicky intervened, this band would have effortlessly crested that gap between the Beatles and Led Zep. The vocals, harmonies and instrumentals were the IDEAL of what constituted the melodic three minute song. This band were unilaterally ravaged by bad fortune in a way that even Spinal Tap couldn't begin to encompass. Be that as it may, please try to spare a moment and appreciate the penultimate band "that could have been"....
