Good Song Lyric Sunday Morning fellow music blogger’s. Today’s prompt comes from Mr. Jim Arms/Elbows/Knees/Legs. Knew right where I was going with this one 🙂
Trivia on Legs…Although all three members of ZZ Top are credited with playing on the track, only Gibbons was actually present; engineer Terry Manning was responsible for all the musical parts save the lead guitar. However, David Blayney (ZZ Top stage manager for 15 years) explains in his book Sharp Dressed Men that the pumping synthesizer effect in “Legs” was introduced in pre-production by Linden Hudson. During the final tracking sessions, Terry Manning (final Eliminator tracking engineer) called Linden Hudson and asked how he did the synth effects for “Legs”, although Terry could have easily pulled it off if he needed to.
The single remix of “Legs” is much more synthesizer-driven than the album version (although a synthesizer can be heard throughout the latter, it is toned down). There is also a three-note guitar riff heard throughout most of the album version of “Legs”, and it is a minute longer than the single version
I thought this was a song from my 70’s generation but it was actually in the 80’s, 1984 to be exact. The 80’s were a blur to me as I was always having a baby or nursing a baby or doing something with a baby ❤ 1982, 1984, 1985, 1988 yes and we carried it into 1992 OMG !!! Probably that’s why I really don’t remember much that was happening in the world in the 80’s.
