#1) Heat of the Moment by Asia
Heat of the Moment starts out with these epic echoing chords and even though they're not on the track, you can mentally hear the crowd shouting as it plays. It's that kinda song. I often wonder why they didn't record it live... it certainly sounds like it was recorded in a large space. The vocalist calls out to the past, confessing his mistakes, building up to this magical point in the song he even says the line "and we would scream together songs unsung"... and then the rest of the band all chimes in with this watered down weak-as-hell chorus. In the words of Lars Ulrich's father... "it doesn't rock hard enough".
#2) Good Vibrations by The Beach Boys
Seriously, what the hell was Brian Wilson thinking when he interrupted the prototypical emo song 20 years before emo existed, only to turn it into some bubblegum pop thing which doesn't match the intro at all? Don't get me wrong, the main part of Good Vibrations is a fine song, but compared to the first 23 seconds, it feels tacked on and completely out of place.
I wish I were more musically inclined, cuz I'd love to "fix" both of those songs someday. :\
