<SIGH> Although nice to be further in the countdown, I'm gonna miss the 80s, all over again </SIGH>
Pure Disco or the more Rock oriented offerings?
They'll be back again, twice. (180's & 80's)
^ The 80's will rise again!
...and then once more after that!
Till we meet again, 80's...
Oh crap, embedding disabled. Second choice:
1980 was an awesome year and this is an awesome version of this song, few quirks on the original.
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
Welcome to the 70's!
Although I've still got Gary Numan going thru my head...
I still think that slithery, reverb-y guitar figure is pretty cool in the short instrumental breaks between verses.
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
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
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
So.... much... 70's.... music!
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:
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?
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...
Or, as an American TV report had it: "Sid is no longer vicious - he's dead"!
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!
