|Nik Kershaw - Wouldn't It Be Good|
(Sep 19, 2003 - 13:02)
|my sentiments exactly, veegez-- although to me this isn't one of the top 80s tunes/musicians, i cannot accept a broad generalization about how 80s music sucked! just like music today, it was all a matter of avoiding mainstream crap radio!
to add a few more to your list (and again, some originated in the 70s, but continued to be great into the 80s...)
Echo & the Bunnymen
Jesus & Mary Chain
Love & Rockets
the Police, and most important of all (imho)....
and there are still plenty more that we have both left out......
the tunes are what got me THROUGH the 80s.....
|The The - This Is The Day|
(Sep 18, 2003 - 16:32)
|this song should be played at the start of every day!!!
it definitely keeps me going....through the good and the bad!
thanks-- and more the the, please....
|Oingo Boingo - Dead Man's Party|
(Sep 15, 2003 - 13:34)
|more oingo boingo, please!!!
i don't want to complain, since this is the first that i've heard them on rp, but there is definitely MUCH BETTER boingo out there (try anything from "only a lad"!)

well, the similarity to soundgarden is likely to have something to do with the fact that it is chris cornell singing.....
his voice still gives me goosebumps!
|Rolling Stones - Let It Bleed|
(Jul 30, 2003 - 17:18)
|Yes, that's my 1.
wow, a 1 for the stones....who'd a thunk it possible? i can't imagine my life without the stones...."let it bleed" is one of my all-time favorite albums-- btw, why don't you play MONKEY MAN???

i've never been a fan of the dixie chicks, but their "running their mouth(s)" really changed my opinion of them-- almost made me want to buy an album to support them!!!
if we went to war in iraq to support our "freedom", why do people get so upset when that very freedom is exercised???
LONG LIVE THE RUNNING OF MOUTHS!!!
(and long live bob dylan! )

i can understand feeling that cat stevens' songs are tainted because of his response to the salman rushdie incident, but to equate muslims with terrorists is ridiculously close-minded and dangerous in this day and age. any sweeping generalizations about people of any race, nationality or religion spurs terrorism-- just look at history (slavery, holocaust,japanese internment camps, etc.,etc.,etc). one reason sept. 11th happened was due to such generalized beliefs about americans.

I'm sure the same could have been said of ANY city with a decent music scene. Christ, the Pumpkins suck...
smashing pumpkins aren't from seattle or portland....they're from chicago
and gish is one of the greatest albums of its era!

thanks for the correction on the album-- i get a little distressed when i read negative comments about one of the greatest rock bands ever! i don't know the album "stripped", and on my sh***y computer speakers, this version sounds fine! ;)
|Peter Gabriel - Biko|
(Nov 11, 2002 - 11:58)
|thanks for playing this song. it still gives me the chills it did when i first heard it. it had quite an influence on my young soul when i first heard it, and helped influence the person i am today-- and from what others have said here, i don't think i'm alone in that!
good song for veteran's day.
btw: LBRC, calm down a little! even brits are entitled to their opinions, and myrrh does raise some good points about the state of the world!

actually, this is NOT beck's first album that shows he's not "just a studio freak" and "has actual talent". try 'mutations' and 'one foot in the grave'.... then it's not so shocking that he's able to create such thoughtful, beautiful music.
ps-- you're right about dismissing the comparison to green day-- there has never been a comparison, beck has always had more talent! :D

(Sep 25, 2002 - 15:04)

(other great hip hop bands include Jurassic 5, De La Soul, Dilated Peoples, and The Roots (who play all their own instruments and write all their own music).
cheers to that! thanks for summarizing my thoughts! :p

i have to admit that i really laughed out loud when i read all the confusion about who sampled/covered who-- and i am NOT THAT OLD!!! learn the legends, guys. stevie is definitely one of them-- and i second the suggestion to pick up "songs in the key of life".
