Yu Grupa – KO
Oct 16, 2018
+2
Meaning
A cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s 1964 song of the same name. Annotations that are not specific to this version can be found on the original. Style-wise, it differs greatly from both the folk-rock vibe of the original and the typical hard rock/metal style of most Disturbed songs. In their place is an orchestra that booms in crescendo as the song goes on, alongside David Draiman’s own vocals that become more powerful. This has resulted in perhaps the most successful single for Disturbed since Down With The Sickness, topping the US Hard Rock Digital and Mainstream Rock charts as well as reaching #42 on the Hot 100, the highest number charted by a Disturbed song.

EMI re-released the album as a three disc box set in April 2010. This remastering collected all permutations and remixes of tracks released by the band. The third disc comprised the video collection on DVD, but it does not include the video for “Say the Word”. Band changes - Arcadia continued the Duran Duran tradition of a slick image. For the Arcadia incarnation of their ever-changing band aesthetic, Le Bon, Rhodes, and Roger Taylor donned an upmarket ‘gothic’ look of black tuxedos, vintage formal wear, and bow ties. The three also dyed their hair black, as seen when they performed (as Duran Duran, with Andy and John Taylor) at the 1985 Live Aid concert in Philadelphia. By the time the video for their single “The Flame” was made in early 1986 (in which John Taylor made a cameo), Rhodes had changed his hair colour to golden blond and Le Bon returned to his regular highlighted hairstyle. Other appearances: The group did a variety of promotional appearances on television, but never toured. When Duran Duran released their Notorious album and toured, “Election Day” was included as part of the set as well as “Some Like it Hot” from The Power Station. Drummer Roger Taylor retired from the music business for 15 years after the release of the Arcadia album, but returned to rejoin the original Duran Duran lineup in 2001. Band Members are:Simon Le Bon – vocals (1985-1986); Nick Rhodes – keyboards (1985-1986); Roger Taylor – drums (1985).

Music career of ARCADIA : So Red the Rose (1985) The group recorded just one album, the platinum-selling So Red the Rose. It peaked at #30 in the UK and #23 in the US, and featured the UK/US Top 10 single “Election Day”, as well as the top 40 hits “The Promise” and “Goodbye Is Forever”. It also contains the single “The Flame” and the promo-singles “Missing”, “El Diablo”, and “Keep Me in the Dark”. Simon Le Bon described So Red the Rose as “the most pretentious album ever made,”[2] while AllMusic called it “the best album Duran Duran never made”.[3] Musicians who contributed to the album included guitarists David Gilmour[4] (Pink Floyd) and Carlos Alomar, pianist Herbie Hancock, Sting (who provided backing vocals on “The Promise”), Grace Jones (who provided the spoken-word interlude on “Election Day”), bass player Mark Egan of the Pat Metheny Group (whose distinctive fretless sound can be recognised in “The Promise”, “El Diablo”, and “Lady Ice”), and David Van Tieghem, a percussionist from New York. Solemn closing song “Lady Ice” features a long intro in which certain sounds sound just like those in the background music of the sniper scene in the film Full Metal Jacket. Full Metal Jacket was released two years after “Lady Ice” was hamberlain. The band also recorded and released the standalone single “Say the Word” for the Playing for Keeps movie soundtrack, which was not included on So Red the Rose.

ARCADIA was a New wave British group formed in 1985 by Simon John Charles Le Bon, Nick Rhodes, and Roger Taylor of Duran Duran as a side, or better like Darkest, exotic and mystic side, project during a break in that band’s schedule. The project was only active during 1985 and 1986 for just one album, So Red the Rose, which was certified Platinum in the United States and included the singles “Election Day”, “Goodbye Is Forever”, “The Flame” and “The Promise (ft. David Gilmour and Sting)”. Drummer Roger Taylor appeared in only a few band photographs and in none of the music videos, and stated he was only to be involved in the recording side of the project .Roger also had minor involvement in The Power Station, the other Duran Duran splinter group formed by Duran Duran’s Andy and John Taylor alongside Robert Palmer and Tony Thompson of Chic Someone for sure still remember the great hit of them “Some Like It Hot”…or John Taylor`ş solo project united with his role in the same coordinates with movie where his songs had the mission for support John himself like pioneer in whole story…. The name of the band was reportedly inspired by the Nicolas Poussin painting Et in Arcadia ego (also known as “The Arcadian Shepherds”.
