  • Get A Grip

    Who else loves this song? I admit, its not the greatest song compared to other Sabbath classics, and the song itself is far from being a classic. But its very catchy and I can't get it outta my head, especially the interlude of the song. I personally however don't own Forbidden, at least not yet.

    That's my two cents, where's yours?

    As I said in another thread, I love that song. It's so catchy. I have the -I've listened to it before" feeling, and even when I see the video, goofy as it is, I know I've seen it before, even though Forbidden came out when I was only 10 years old.

      My favourite song on Forbidden; cool riff and a catchy vocal line. Gotta love the change at the end, too! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

          One of my favorite Martin era Sabbath songs. The riff is very catchy and the song has a groove to it. I don't remember where I readit but I think Tony had the main riff as far back as the Dehumanizer sessions

            You can hear it during a jam that is on the instrumental demos.

                  My first encounter with it was the above mentioned music video. And I must agree, it's indeed very catchy song, and even if the video is 'goofy' I think that it's cool too.

                      But there is a good number of Sabbath fans that love and appreciate the album. Everyone hears things differently and it makes for interesting conversation.

                        I have the instrumental version of forbidden.
                        It's great, you can hear many riffs that are hidden under the voice...
                        BTW, get a grip is a cool song.

                          I like it. It's not the greatest song ever, but I enjoy it when I listen to it.
