    @Thane16 – Puro

    He he – don’t worry – I think we all knew “its easy” was tongue in cheek!
    I loved the wild meanderings my Youtubing and listening took me (much I saved everyone from!) trying to get it.

    And it may shock you to learn, but you could have posted the song as a hint and I still wouldn’t have guessed it!

    ;¬D

    [after the briefest of googles]
    not sure how ‘random’ – like spambots before they’ve picked up the “doctor” in the URL and pasted “hey guys – got problems ‘down there’? get yer dodgy meds” adverts.

    Though it does sound like some other language translated into German, pasted on an English speaking site, so…. maybe not random but ‘stoopid’?

    Hi @Thane16 – Puro!

    I was terribly cruel and wrong about “Brisbane’s only band”.
    Mr. Google has told me that Powderfinger were from Brisbane as well as a couple I’ll admit to not knowing.

    I’m afraid it will sadden you to know that although I’m still smiling at the almost-impossibility of guessing the song, I don’t think I ever will!
    I think it…[Read more]

    @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.

    Not yet.

    Lets try and guess from the meagre clues we have!

    ;¬)

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 3

    ah, @geoffers – interesting song, I’ve not heard it before (which is one of the many things I love about this thread)!

    Actually, I think this search for a song that we never heard, will probably keep us all busy through 2019.

    ;¬)

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 3

    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]

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 3

    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

  • Whisht replied to the topic General Music thread 3

    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.
    John…[Read more]

  • Whisht replied to the topic 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]

    ah well – that last one didn’t link as I expected.

    I was after the Live at Newport version, but that wasn’t it.
    soooo…. here’s the single (I’ll admit I prefer the live version):

    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]

    @pedant and @cathannabel (and @ everyone else),

    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.

    @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.

    So – here is a(nother) song for It Takes You Away.
    @Bluesqueakpip has explained better than I how much of a fairytale this episode is (and for…[Read more]
