Re: One-year countdown thread!

1980 was an awesome year and this is an awesome version of this song, few quirks on the original.

Re: One-year countdown thread!

Oh and the Ska vid reminded me of one of my favorite songs, from 1980:



Can I take you to a restaurant
that's got glass tables
you can watch yourself
while you are eating

I still think that slithery, reverb-y guitar figure is pretty cool in the short instrumental breaks between verses.

never took much notice but how well did the last one do.

Did it exceed expectations ?
was is a box office success and if so how good ?
Most successful Trek movie ever!

http://www.boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=startrek11.htm
this surprises me ....I know movies cost more now to make and with ticket prices going up it would take in more but still.
Surprised that the domestic was twice that of the foreign, what with the huge following of trek world wide especially in the uk, germany and elsewhere
he fact that it was a film about space with death fun and explosions made a lot of people go and see it on top of the huge star trek cfanbase that has built up over the past 40ish years

The fact that they still allow fire to burn in space really gets to me, then i realise this is star trek and all bad is forgotten

Re: One-year countdown thread!

1979, one of my favorite years.



I've been waiting for a guide to come
and take me by the hand
could these sensations make me feel
the pleasures of a normal man


From their first and sadly penultimate record.

But cool stuff was going on in the land of the sun as well as pallor-ous isles.. This was released in 1979 as a b-side originally. The HORRORS of Linda Ronstadt's lover..



California uber alles
California uber alles
Uber alles California
Uber alles California

Zen fascists will control you
100% natural
you will jog for the master race
and always wear a happy face

The Cure is about to disappear from the countdown

From their first album:



So freaking good..

10:15 Saturday night
and the tap drips
under the strip light
and I'm sitting in the kitchen sink


And finishing off with the Anthem of the Era:



A nuclear error but I have no fear
London is drowning but I live by the river

Someone has to educate the young'uns. Been listening to Dead Kennedys all day, forgot how good they were!

And now 1978.

Tom Robinson released "Glad to be Gay" in 1978 though he wrote it for a Gay Pride march in London in '76. It reached #18 on the UK singles chart however BBC1 refused to broadcast it.



Pictures of naked young women are fun
In Titbits and Playboy, page three of The Sun
There's no nudes in xxx News our one magazine
But they still find excuses to call it obscene
Read how disgusting we are in the press
Telegraphs, people and Sunday Express
Molesters of children, corruptors of youth
It's there in the paper, it must be the truth

Sing if you're glad to be gay

Sing if you're happy that way


And then there's fabulous number.. I remember the first time I heard it I just about died laughing, it was such an excellent taking of the piss. I still think it's excellent.



And now, the end is near
And so I face the final curtain
You cunt, I´m not a queer
I´ll state my case, of which I´m certain

Ain't it cool

My room-mate asked to select an offering for today:



Nice.

Also from 78, though not very dance-able, I just gotta post it out of love for it:



Original Studio version.

Loving the music, everyone!
But... what do we do when we run out of good music years?

Re: One-year countdown thread!

We won't run out of good music years, we'll just have to educate ourselves. And once we get down to -212 we are back to the present!

Now I've only got one for 1977 because it is too cool to need any companion pieces. I first heard this on a mixed unlabeled cassette tape in 1980 and I spent years and years trying to track it down. It was one of the first questions I asked when I landed on the internet in '97.. "how can I find the version of Heroes that David Bowie sings in French?" It still took me years and the advent of Youtube to find this, though I got people to confirm that yes, it existed.

btw according to Wikipedia Youtube has only been around since 2005...!!

So, here we are, play it loud, David Bowie singing Heroes in French.

...I think this may be my new favourite thread! I agree with Teacake, we won't run out of good music, we'll just have to look a little harder...

KingDaniel has a way of starting the best threads

I'm looking forward to fun of the challenge when we get past my usual listening eras.. all sorts of choices have been coming to mind!
