Good Music / Guilty Pleasure Thread


#626

A personal favourite from August 1981.


#627

On a related theme -
We did a thing here yeeeeears ago, the most 80’s video of all time, this was my suggestion…


#628

Good shout. But 80s was such a Decade of the video you could pick a hundred. Genesis In Too Deep is one that I’d call completely 80s. A few Talking Heads vids, Eurythmics, Peter Gabriel…


#629

I didn’t think in my youth that I would be an old man sitting in my kitchen asking Alexa to spin me my favourite tunes by just talking to her. So far In the Ghetto (or Loreto as I telll the daughter) by Elvis, Black, Chris Isaacs, Angie by the Stones, Stay/Load Out by JB …


#630

Had almost forgotten about Beck . Think his new video is out tonight, unfortunately only on itunes , directed by Edgar Wright ( Shawn of the Dead )
Looks class & the song is catchy

Here’s the original

Would love to do Angie (settle pervs!) in a quiet karaoke with a few friends about 3am some night. The mood would have to be just right.


#633

#634

Sampled by Sound Crowd in their remix of Shining Path’s Change It.


#635

Listening to Welcome to the Pleasure Dome by FGTH … some album. Most of the covers are better than the originals!

You’ll never listen to Springsteen’s boring Born to Run again after this … :open_mouth:


#636

Ehhh not on this occasion…


#637

Always like this


#638

Sacrilege


#639

I’m not wrong …


#640

Tracks of My Tears always used to be my favourite of his/theirs. Til I discovered it wasn’t about going out on the tear.
Now Second That Emotion has taken over. Though I used to think it was I Second That In Motion, like a vote… :flushed:


#641

Your not right either though. Frankie s attempt is a brave one. Odd that they apparently did nt play at all on the album yet the live version of born to run indicates their decent musicians.


#642

Hands up

I was wrong

This is the most 80’s song ever

Worth sticking with til 2 mins 20 for his synth solo mime dance


#643

You’re addicted to TOTP on BBC4?


#644

The highlight of my week.


#645

I’d be quite sure Harry’s addiction is nothing to mine. All TOTP are recorded (currently 1982 and 1985) and when I get the chance will watch them with the Guinness Book of Top 40 Charts in my lap!!

Anoraks-R-Us! :sunglasses:

@Harrys_Tiles - other guilty pleasures of mine would be 10CC - did you see the BBC4 documentary on them recently? Absolutely brilliant!!
