Post-70s music (especially for Phil)

Post by Jorge22 » 29 Dec 2017 12:53

As promised... These are just a few things which (in my opinion) you should try and listen to, always taking care to place them in their epoch.

1980s

- Joy Division (especially the album Closer);

- Bauhaus (especially songs like Bela Lugosi's Dead, Dark Entries and Telegram Sam - a cover that's much better than the original);

- Talking Heads (especially the album Fear of Music and maybe Remain in Light);

- Prince (especially the album Parade);

- Marillion (I mean mostly the album Script for a Jester's Tear);

1990s

- Soul Coughing (especially their album Ruby Vroom);

- Beck (especially the album Odelay);

- Radiohead (especially their album Ok Computer);

2000s

- Queens of the Stone Age (especially their album Songs for the Deaf);

- The Strokes (well, I don't know, who doesn't like The Strokes?).

And don't forget classics like Bob Dylan (whose 2000s work became a lot more mature and truly personal, forget the eighties), David Bowie (of course, also forget most of the eighties), JJ Cale and Patti Smith, for instance.

That must have been the shortest possible list but I'm sure you'll find some really interesting stuff there. Enjoy. :)

Most of those are pretty inconsequential.
THIS is the only one you need concern yourself with,Phil.

Lol!

Forgot to mention The Cult (80s). Not sure they're memorable but they're distinctive and I like them.

Just now saw this, thanks.

Has anyone noticed that we set a record a few minutes ago for the number of online users? Wonder what's going on to bring so many people here at one time.

No, I (for one) didn’t. But apparently it’s true. Bizarre. Or maybe Michael wanted to end the year on a high note. :)

It's the list... Too perfect! :D

That is including Ian's suggestion, naturally. :lol:

On a second thought... Where do the users originate?
I know it sounds weird but I have a poetry (my own obviously) blog since 2005. A few times, perhaps because phrases or the odd title, references in English, I had a really unusual number of visitors - once from Russia, several times from the US. Maybe the secret services aren't quite sure of things in the Internet age?

Yeah, yeah it most certainly does! Globally operating secret services who monitor your poetry blog account for the current spike in visitors on this here site? :lol: Bwahahahaaaaa!! Good one! :lol2:

You're being silly.

I gave you a perfectly reasonable explanation if you can base it on something specific (of which I have no idea in the site's case - but I do when it comes to the blog. I'm not an idiot and I'm not relating my blog to trle). Although it may (as I said) seem weird at first glance. And, honestly, it's only a possible explanation... In the Internet age, with so much info of all sorts going back and forth like locusts, Intelligence monitors it all the best they can which I'm sure most of the times amounts to nothing. If you're looking to remain anonymous you're in the wrong place.

Or maybe you were just looking to get back at me and jumped at what you thought was your chance...

Why, of course. But then, taking out the poetry blog and just leaving it at “globally operating secret services did it” would have made it sound daft instead of funny. And I know that, deep down, you’re one funny guy! :)

I actually am. Sometimes. Depending on how I feel. :)

In this case, I was being serious. Not daft. Not funny. Not certain either.

I'll explain, anyway. Poetry's one rather cryptic language sometimes, especially for people who aren't used to it. I mean poetry, not rhymes.
One time, for instance, I posted a poem named Beam me up, Scottie which, in the global paranoia that surrounds us, could perfectly well be examined if somebody was to look for possible clues of whatever in whatever appeared on the Internet.
I don't get that many visitors. I mean, I do get regular visitors but not that many. After all, it's poetry and I'm not a star.
The next day or so I got almost a thousand views from Russia. Do Russians understand Portuguese and are they interested in my poetry? I don't think so.
A few days later I got basically the same amount of views from the US. Same questions exactly.
The Russians haven't returned (as far as I can remember) but the US visitors have repeated their visits a few more times on different occasions.
So... what am I to think really? It's not that far fetched to believe maybe the Intelligence services are a little clueless at times and wasting their time and efforts on totally unimportant stuff.
Oh well.

As for trle, I just made the connection. But only those who can see where the visits originated can draw some kind of conclusion, not me.
