In the realms of science and medicine, new research often undergoes review by peers before it becomes widely accepted. As such, I would like the present Chris’s Universal Music Theorem #572 for peer review by the esteemed body that is the AW.
Chris’s Universal Music Theorem #572 states that “Firth Of Fifth” by Genesis is the most “complete” piece of music in existence. This is based of the following widely accepted facts (see attached video for reference)….
– it has the best piano introduction of any song courtesy of Mr Banks (A): (reference 0.00 onwards obviously)
– it has the best keyboard riff / solo in a piece of popular music, also courtesy of Mr Banks (A); (reference 4.35 to ~5.45)
– it has the greatest guitar solo courtesy of Mr Hackett (S): (reference ~5.50 onwards)
Given that any song with a singular best drum / guitar / tambourine / etc solo is deemed to be in the upper echelons of popular music, for a song to THREE such distinctions surely elevates it to supreme greatness.
With the proposal of the above theorem, peers now have a period of 60 days in which to counter propose, before this theorem becomes law. Alternate theorems / law proposals are welcome.
