Heart Talk

Why does the Heart reference not listed when several contributors have added it? -concerned strong bad fan

  • Because there are many possible songs that the 'rhythm guitar' could reference, so it's probably just a general reference to rhythm guitar rather than a reference to a specific song. Aurora the Homestar Coder 02:56, 26 Apr 2005 (UTC)
  • What are you thinking? Have you heard Barracuda? This is a wrong call, and I think the Barracuda reference should be in. Nobody who has heard Barracuda would think that Strong Bad was imitating Bonanza. I fail to see any other song that it could be! P.S. It is much more apparent that Strong Bad's rhythm guitar is from Barracuda than it is that the tiny strings are from Creeping Death. So if we can't have Barracuda maybe we should delete Creeping Death as well?
  • I agree with her.I was listening to Barracuda over the weekend,and went,"Oh dude!That opening sounds like one of the guitar-y things from the email guitar!"I swear,ask my mom.

Closed STUFF

That's got to be "Barracuda" by Heart (DECLINED)

Strong Bad's rhythm guitar music is clearly inspired by the intro to "Barracuda" by Heart.

  • User:Homestar_Coder has vowed in Talk:guitar to delete any mention of "Barracuda" from fun facts on the basis that "there are many possible songs that the 'rhythm guitar' could reference."
  • The only other song I saw in the history was Bonanza, which for so very many reasons is obviously false and should be kept out.
  • What do you think? I only ask that you listen to "Barracuda" and the email before deciding this one.
    • In the future, I would appreciate if you would refrain from claiming I "vowed" to do anything. I merely deleted the fact, explained my reason, and requested you put it in STUFF if you don't agree. Aurora the Homestar Coder 06:10, 29 May 2005 (UTC)
    • Hey Anonymous! Why don't ya, um, write a post or something and not attribute it to yourself! -- tomstiff 13:15, 1 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • Decline. Sometimes basic rhythm guitar is just basic rhythm guitar. -- tomstiff 13:34, 1 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • Accept! Have you ever heard the song? It is so Barracuda! It's even the same number of beats, the only difference is the basic rhythm guitar music in the email is a slightly different tone then the opening refrain of Barracuda. Ookelaylay 14:56, 1 Jun 2005 (UTC)
    • No it isn't, count them... guitar has 5 low ones then it rises, Barracuda has 7 low ones then it rises... All the same I think it's close enough, so Revise (get rid of the word "clearly"), but get your facts straight first. --phlip TC 15:16, 1 Jun 2005 (UTC)
      • Well,I think it's close enough. Yeah, revise I guess, change 'clearly inspired by' to 'remniscient of',and you're set. Ookelaylay 17:44, 1 Jun 2005 (UTC)
        • Yes, I've heard Barracuda. Over and over and over and over and over again since 1977. That's why I voted against this. It's not the same rhythm (see above) and SB doesn't sing it the same way. -- tomstiff 17:59, 1 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • It sounds slightly like Barracuda..but I would have to say revise as well to something equivalent to philip's suggestion. I do think it is some sort of reference too, as isn't the "meedly meedly" part a reference to a real song too? -- Tony Stony 21:04, 1 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • Decline All the proposed rewrites may as well have "may be" or "could be" latched onto them. Donny vs Universe
  • DECLINE It sounds absolutely NOTHING like the song or at least very little. The only reason they're similiar is becasue they're both rhythm guitar. Case closed.
  • Decline There are a lot of songs it could be referencing. Unless the line or section of the toon in question is very obviously referring to something, it seems too conjectural to claim it as a reference.--Big Dog 22:56, 5 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • Anonymous, GET OVER YOURSELF please. Decline, belindas Dasrik 13:51, 6 Jun 2005 (UTC)
  • Can you say, "uh-DECLINE"? Who cares what song it sounds a little like? Resemblance doesn't equal reference. - aaronak 11:44, 8 Jun 2005 (UTC)
