@Geoffers – a bi late from me but great shout on Lloyd Cole!
Not that it was likely(!) but what a great call back!
However – I must take umbrage with “the 90’s weren’t the best decade for music”
and declare that the 90’s were…. OK and stuff.
Now, if this became a serve/ return of your 80’s classics to my 90’s then I’m sure you’d win but… hol…[Read more]
ah @pedant – I’m shocked that you thought I wouldn’t have thought “what would be a track that a Brisbane shopping centre might play?”
Though true, I then didn’t apply that logic to what I posted!
However, I really did think about music piped over a shop, as its a story I have of my own stupidity.
Forgive me if I’ve already bored everyone…[Read more]
@thane16 – please know that I’m am doubled up in tears!
I haven’t laughed this hard in ages!!
Please – a small favour.
When Puro does wake up screaming “Its [artists name]” please don’t tell us who it is.
Lets try and guess from the meagre clues we have!
Hi @Thane16 – great to hear from you!
Thanks so much for the update – I’m still giggling from picturing what your house is like at the moment!
So – the challenge is:
– its a song with “forever” in the lyrics
– it may (or may not) be from the 80’s
– it may be a ‘hair band’ (though not necessarily)
– it sounds ‘flat’ or ‘sharp’.
Well – that’ll…[Read more]
So, I was actually going to pop in to say “Hi” to post this ridiculous tune.
When I was younger I never really got into the heavy Rock geetar bands, but when I was last in Oxfam on my semi-regular rifle through their CDs I got one of those ’30 greatest guitar songs EVER‘ albums.
Full of much that I smirkingly remembered and some I gladly didn’t,…[Read more]
Sadly need to post this tune from my childhood (we may even have got the single when it came out).
Apparently a ‘lovely boy’ by all accounts from everyone that knew him.
RIP Windsor Davies
Love both of those @Thane16 (Puro)!
That Baccarat song was recently used in a Cadbury’s chocolate ad that I thought worked well (the campaign seems a rather simplistic ‘bit of fun’ following on from the Phil Collins one, but probably works in terms of what its aiming for).
I like it anyway!
I don’t really have a ‘song’ for Resolution.
Hi everyone – hope you’re enjoying the New Year!
I haven’t much to add to everyone’s thoughts on Resolution – except to add to the view that one Dalek is always better (ie scarier) than hordes of them.
Chibnall seems to be stronger in the ‘intimate-relationship dialogue rather than speech-ifying and though I was never a fan of the bombastic stuff…[Read more]
Hey all – Happy New Year’s Eve to everyone!
I’ve been trying to get into the christmassy vibe and now the New Year’s vibe but… just a weird one this year.
Nothing major, I’m perfectly fine as thankfully are my loved ones, just not in an especially ‘festive’ spirit though I am perfectly content.
So, I’ve spent too long trying to find a tune and…[Read more]
Haven’t been on the forum for a few days (or have I????*)
I’m travelling over the next few days (visiting a friend which is nice).
So a quick post of the most obvious song I could think of!
I could’ve sworn I’d posted this clip before and if so sorry – its just the way I usually check suggests I…[Read more]
that body of work stands and will stand, with some of the finest 3 minute pop songs ever crafted. And some of the most memorable lyrics. Pete Shelley, RIP.
Cath you’ve said better than I why the Buzzcocks were so good and the sadness of hearing about Pete Shelley.
As a kid at the time I’d…[Read more]
@Thane16 – you mentioned you’d not heard A Man of Constant Sorrows – I mainly know the Dylan version (though I’ll admit I don’t really listen to his early stuff much)
Anyway, here’s another song for It Takes You Away.
Actually I have two.
One is Orpheus by David Sylvian. I think versions of that myth are similar in some ways to the other…[Read more]
aww @Arbutus – I’m gonna listen to the Herbie Hancock in my morning (they’re great great tunes and I’ve not heard the live versions).
But they’ll make me want to get up and for me as I type its nighttime.
@pedant – Mirror in the Bathroom – fairy nuff ! Tight as a gnat’s …. hm maybe I shouldn’t do rhyming.
The other ‘mirror’ songs in my collection are all unsuitable and so I’ll link to something by Arctic Monkeys (from the album referenced by the t-shirt).
Snap out of it – perhaps quite appropriate.
But I’ll also link a song which is me trying to…[Read more]
That. Was. Excellent.
Honestly, I was welling up/in tears at the end and thought that all the actors* were brilliant.
Just thought the whole thing worked well.
In this one I’m not especially caring if it feels like “is this the Doctor?” and instead just enjoying feeling “that was a great story”.
No doubt some music** will come but really just…[Read more]
