More Than Words

Music by Nuno Bettencourt

Originally Performed by Extreme

"More Than Words" is a song by rock band Extreme. It is the fifth track and third single from their 1990 album Pornograffitti. It is a ballad built around acoustic guitar work by Nuno Bettencourt and the vocals of Gary Cherone (with harmony vocals from Bettencourt). The song is a detour from the funk metal style that permeates the band's records. As such, it has often been described as "a blessing and a curse" due to its overwhelming success and recognition worldwide, but the band ultimately embraced it and plays it at every show.

    Release Date: 1991

Ac Rock : U R What U R : 1 CD

Ac Rock : U R What U R

Ah, sweet rock 'n roll! Say what? Yes, "Suite Judy Blue Eyes" (CCNY) is sweet. "Silhouettes" takes us back in time to the stone age of rock. A rap/reggae intro to "Get Off Of My Cloud" makes it into an original all over again. Bob Dylan is here.You won't even know its "Like A Rolling Stone" until a minute or so has passed. The Beatles are here. OK, lets go out with one of the intriguing tunes in rock n' roll, "Bohemian Rhapsody". Four singers with great voices and unusually fine arranging skills apply themselves to the world of rock with grand results.

Songlist: Suite Judy Blue Eyes, Silhouettes, Get Off My Cloud, More Than Words, Break My Stride, Like A Rolling Stone, Things We Said Today, Carry On Wayward Son, Bohemian Rhapsody

B Vocal : Seis Voces... Nada Mas? : 1 CD

B Vocal : Seis Voces... Nada Mas?    Out of Print

We just had the rare pleasure of experiencing b vocal, Spain's fast-rising all male a cappella sextet, winner of the New York City 2010 Harmony Sweepstakes Regional, live on stage at the National Finals in San Rafael. Their wild, funny set, culminating in a hilarious a cappella rendition of "The Barber of Seville" that would make Ward Swingle proud, earned them the most lopsided ballot count for Audience Favorite we can remember. There is so much vocal talent here, and so much natural humor that recalls physical comedians such as Charlie Chaplin and the Marx Brothers, b vocal have become big stars in Spain and Europe, and are well on their way in the U.S. There are 15 songs here, a healthy mix of songs in English, such as The Back Street Boys' "I Want It That Way," The Corrs' "What Can I Do," B.J. Thomas's "Hooked on a Feeling," live renditions of Elton John's anthem "Your Song" and Wet Wet Wet's "Love is All Around" and Extreme's "More Than Words;" and in Spanish, such as Juanes' "A Dios Le Pido," the fairly silly "Mucho Mejor" by Los Rodriguez, Marc Anthony's "Te Tengo Aqui" and Mana's "Clavado en un Bar." B vocal was clearly having big fun on stage at the Finals, and just as clearly having a great time in the studio recording "Seis voces." We love this group, and are pretty sure you will enjoy "Seis voces!"

Songlist: A Dios Le Pido, Color Esperanza, Te Tengo Aqui, Mediterraneo, I Want It That Way, Carolina, What Can I Do, Mucho Mejor, Sabor de Amor, Clavado en un Bar, Hooked On a Feeling, Your Song, Si Tu me Dices Ven, Love Is All Around, More Than Words

Naturally 7 : What Is It? : 1 CD

Naturally 7 : What Is It?

The seven deeply spiritual young New York men who called themselves "Seven" and became 1999 Harmony Sweeps Champs now are called Naturally 7 were often asked, "What is it you're doing?" Instead of answering, they wrote a song: "What Is It?" which became the title of their second CD. If the first ("Non-Fiction," on PAC Records) was still highly jazzful and musicologically composed, the second offers a new quality of pop music, striking sparks as soon as you hear it, with an organic fizz to it. Naturally Seven summon up soul, rap, rock and folk from their throats in harmonious balance; their repertoire consists half of their own compositions, half of cover versions. At first listen, we were certain that the group had gone top 40 and was using a hot soul band, until we read the disclaimer "All Sounds A Cappella, all musical sounds crated by the human voice." Listen to the title tune, the Kool & The Gang-flavored "I Wanna Be Where U.R. (Rescue Me)," or "No Fool For You," and you'll hear the a cappella envelope being seriously pushed. 14 songs, hard to pick favorites, but a funky "Broken Wings" cover, "Another You," "Get Ready," "Say You Love Me," "Closer," "Back to the Essence" and "Grace" work for us. The fact that for several years the group has been been busy creating a huge following in Germany, Switzerland and Japan is our loss in the US. One of the best, most influential CDs of the year, on many levels, Beautiful and extensive liner notes.

Songlist: So The Question Is, What Is It? (Excuse Me), Gone With The Wind, Broken Wings, Another You, Music Is The Key, I Wanna Be Where U.R., More Than Words, No Fool For You, Get Ready, Say You Love Me, Closer, Back To The Essence, Grace
