All righty friends usually in the Cool Lil Numbers section here at Arena Rock I’m throwing down Loud Rock tunes but today lets shift gears and talk about a great acoustic track from Robert Plants Manic Nirvana(1990) album titled Liars Dance!
I have said it before and I’ll say it again for me back in the day of buying things music I loved those songs crunched on the end of the record that are absolute Gems! Liars Dance is that and much more. Next to the Roberts ode to horn dogs tune (Big Love, track 2) this is my fav from Manic Nirvana.
Liars Dance is just Robert and his guitar player Doug Boyle and Boyle plays a real cool acoustic piece that clocks in under 2 minutes 40 seconds! (Studio Version,Live Version is a little longer)Crazy how catchy this tune is in such a short order of time!
Bobby and Dougie don’t screw around and they take the Don’t Bore Us Get To The Chorus approach and it pays off in spades! Love how Boyle just cranks up the strumming halfway thru like a crazed man and just shifts right down into the catchy verse! Awesome stuff…
Dig the words I mean where else would you fine the line….
Trees cry-men bow/Kneel before the fatted cow/Lets take a little moo before we go/No we won’t be back again/Won’t be back again….
I posted the live clip and you can see how they pulled it off in that kind of setting….
Great Friggin Track….
