What Are You Listening To?

Recommended Posts

My inner 1980s teenage girl has been taunting me these past 3-4 days.  Ive had this song in my head that long. Yes.  Yes, its true. 

We might as well compliment it with this song....I saw a commercial for the movie on some channel yesterday.  I say why fight it. Ill give in. 

 

Truth be told. I kinda like these songs.  I love the sax in Hungry Eyes and I love the acapella in Make Me Lose Control. Reminds me of 1960s surf music.  I guess that is what the whole purpose of the video is also. California Dreamin' with the hot bods and the hot rods and the sun and the beach.  

 

1980s pop.   Nothing like it!!!

Wolves...that was a theme yesterday so...today I got wolves on my mind today.

My first Ozzy song Ive ever heard. I was but a young boy. My best friend's older brother was a huge Ozzy fan. I remember how excited he was when he got this album back in the day. 

I was just as excited when I was gifted Twisted Sister's Stay Hungry at about the same time frame. 

 

 And of course Duran squared

Ive had fond memories with this song. Ive attended many house and aprés ski parties in the 1990s and  for whatever reason, this song was a staple in ALL of them.   Great party song! 

 

 

And when I typed Bark at the Moon on youtube, this song came up as a suggestion.

Nothing to do with wolves, but it is the only song I like from Iron Maiden.  But then again, I never gave Iron Maiden a chance in the 1980s. Maybe its time for me to discover them???!!!  Great guitar work. Great drums. Great vocals. I wonder what was wrong with me then for not liking Iron Maiden?

Was "across the pond" on one of those "is that a mistake?" priced tickets because it's low season.  However, the weather in the navel of the Mediterranean was in the 60s (F).  This music to accompany one of the more famous Fellini movies was probably released in the '60s as well.

"La Dolce Vita"

Pasta, palm trees, gelato, melodramatic people ...

All this talk about Spring

 

And its a welcomed song choice because everywhere I go in Montreal...Bon Jovi is playing. The band is coming back for another concert. Went skating outside, heard Bon Jovi. We went to a rink, they played Bon Jovi. Turn on the radio, Enlgis stations, French stations...Bon Jovi...

I mean...I like the band...but shyte, man! 

Some macho Bon Jovi, please.  Not this sappy girley girly lovey lovey shyte he does. Its good. But its too...girley. 

A couple of songs that the radio does not play...at least not anymore.

 

Wanted Dead or Alive is too Bon Jovi rock cliché

So Ill go with something that is long forgotten!!!

My night of work is this listening to the originals and the remakes. Have to say I actually like both in this case.

New trumps old, in this case ("Hazy Shade of Winter"), as was the case with "MacArthur Park" (Donna Summer) and "Misty" (Ray Stevens - country rendition)

Here's a good movie that had a good song to go along with it:

Some say grunge killed rock-n-roll.

I say formulaic hair metal/glam rock did ITSELF in.

Although I like these songs imma gonna post....I aint foolin' myself. I KNOW these songs and so called rock bands were the  culprits for the end. And there are plenty more...its just these are what I was listening to on youtube just now...for whatever reason.  

Hey!  These are still better than the formulaic pop shyte  that's been...popular the last coupla decades.  The...Im gonna crash my car unto a bridge and I dont care and the  haterz are gonna hate hate hate shake it off are catchy...but really really really really shytty.  These formulaic glam rock songs are just...shytty.    4 shyttys versus the 1 shytty on the shytty pop scale of shyt pop songs.  The musicians are really musicians playing  their own real instruments and the singer is actually singing is my criteria as to why formulaic pop glam rock is better than pop songs of today. 

 

 

 My final random thought  of the night before calling it quits...

Should this post have gone in the random thoughts thread?

Good Night!

I woke up this morning and had Cinderella on my mind. Probably because I went to bed with hard rock/glam rock/hair metal blasting in my ears.  (before the genre went copy cat on us) 

 

Then a commercial for this band and song came on.  

I think its very Led Zeppelin.  I think its very very good.  From Canada.  

CANUCK ROCK RULES!!!

 

Another very Led Zeppelin sounding artist. From the 70s this time.

 

On the wake of this crazy coronavirus thing...
