Anybody listen to Jeff Buckley???

After seeing a couple people respond with some songs of his on the stuck in your head thread, I just wanted to see how many here are fans of Jeff Buckley.


(to those whove never listened to Jeff Buckly, do yourself a huge favor and pick up Grace)

Such a great talent.

Your thoughts??

One Buckley fan checking in .

And yes, there is a way Grace could be better: get rid of So Real (sorry, just don't like that song at all). But other than that it's an amazing album, and I can really relate to a lot of the lyrics write now. Plus he's got that incredible voice.

Imagine what music he could've created had he not died - Grace was his debut!

Yeah, he was brilliant. Grace is a superb album.
I'm glad i got to see him twice, but to be honest, ever since he died I kind of haven't been into his music as much as before.

JB, God rest his soul, was probably the best songwriter of the 1990's. In addition to grace I STRONGLY suggest you listen to live at the Olympia!

Also, these B-sides and unreleased are musts:

Forget Her - Was gonna be on Grace in place of So Real. I think I like it better actually. He didn't put it on because it was to personal, I think.

Satisfied Mind - This one is on sketches and what an amazing song it is. They played it at his funeral and what a fitting song it is!! I hope By the time I die I will be able to have it played at mine, right now trhe lyrics don't apply.

Everybody Here Wants You - Nice b-side, very smooth.

"Here it is, revenge to the tune;
your no good.
your no good, your no good, your no good
Can't you tell, it's well understood?"

I love Jeff Buckley! (or rather his music, but he was one cool guy as well...)
Grace is a fantastic album, Lover, you should've come over is one of my favourite songs of all time!
I love the live cds too, I never got to see him live unfortunately, and I have the Chicago video too. Jeff was a great talent and is sorely missed by his fans.
Another song thats really amazing, and one only on the live cd(s), (or is it on SFMSTD?) is What Will You Say.
So no, dont listen to him much

Jeff of the greatest talents that will never be totally realized. Yes, he was an amazing vocalist and musician, and the world lost much when he died so young.

Last Goodbye and his rendition of Hallelujah are two of my all time favorite songs! Very passionate.

Rock 'N Roll is the sound of revenge.

I'm also a fan. I only have Grace, though. "Lover, You Should've Come Over" is my favourite song from the album. I kind of played part of it on guitar last night! Well, I played the first two notes. It went downhill from there.

I'm a big Buckley fan... Grace is in my top five for favorite albums!! Anyone here read Dream Brother Yet?

Holy Jesus, Holy rock and roll...

'A pearl in an ocean of noise', is how I believe Bono once described the man.

Buckley's rendition of Hallelujah is simply chill-inducing.

But check out some of the rough cuts on the 'Sketches for my sweetheart the drunk' double CD. It's a bit patchy, but a few (including 'I know we could be so happy baby, if we wanted to be') are wonderful.

You know some songs sound like ones by Frank Sinatra
But there's no place like... NOO YAWK

Huge fan here.
I actually had a ticket to see him live here in Sydney and couldn't go on the night because I got sick and was home in bed

I truly believe he would have been one of the greatest talents ever.
I've said it before but if you guys are big fans, and you aren't fans of his dad, you should definitely check him out.
Tim Buckley had just as much talent as his son and produced some beautiful songs.
Blue Melody is a fave of mine.

Jeff is known for his melodic soothing songs but I love when he totally goes off and plays really hard. He does so in the live shows and its incredible!
he wasn't bad to look at either

Coincidentally, I just ordered Grace a few days ago. Can't wait to get it.
