What Are You Listening To?

Recommended Posts

Sitting here contemplating what business hours we need to stay open...to be safe and responsible...(already Quebec made it law that restaurants could stay open but need to limit their capacity ton 50%).  Or if maybe I stay open but drive thu only....

Anyway...

Some songs that inspired me that also reminded me of Covid-19 .  I kinda like the cute way Im thinking about it...lyrics and the up beat music...

Your heart sweats, your body shakes
Another kiss is what it takes
You can't sleep, you can't eat
There's no doubt, you're in deep
Your throat is tight, you can't breathe
Another kiss is all you need
Whoa, you like to think that you're immune to the stuff, oh yeah

 

 
Quote

 

Oh
I want a new drug, one that won't make me sick
One that won't make me crash my car
Or make me feel three feet thick
I want a new drug, one that won't hurt my head
One that won't make my mouth too dry
Or make my eyes too red
One that won't make me nervous
Wonderin' what to do

One that makes me feel like I feel when I'm with you
When I'm alone with you

 

 

 

Quote

 

A hot summer night, fell like a net
I've gotta find my baby yet
I need you, to soothe my head
And turn my blue heart to red
Doctor Doctor, gimme the news
I got a bad case of lovin' you
No pill's gonna cure my ill
I got a bad case of lovin' you

The only NiN song I liked (past tense) is...and only because it was super popular with the Montreal strippers when they did their...um...dance is...Closer. 

But Im over the song. Like 20 years ago. I wont listen to it anymore. I do have some fun memories with the song playing in the background, though.

Apparently...this was also a stripper favorite. Was too young for the strip clubs for this song, but I did have some fun times at the rollerblade rink with a couple of dates back in the day. The song was a staple for that scene too...

Def Leppard would be my favorite 1980s rock band and Hysteria would be THE album...

"Step inside, walk this way. You and me babe...hey hey!!!"  will ALWAYS be the intro version for me!!!

 

ZZ TOP, Van Halen and AC/DC follow closely!

Saw some strippers in Windsor, but that was pre-NIN. Good times, but the canucks (then) like the lights turned up too high.  ;)

That album was a major part of my soundtrack in the mid 90s when I lived in Michigan and was in grad school.. listening to it always brings me back to the good times and infinite despair of those years.

The one genre of music that Im not a big fan of, but I do have some favorites spanning from the '50s-'90s is country.

But I was deeply saddened  just now. I just found out that Kenny Rogers died.  RIP.

 

And then there is Ghetto Superstar, that is what you are...or something like that.   I never liked the Dolly Parton duo song, nor this sampled version, but it this version is something that I have fond memories with...

It hasnt subsided. 

All morning long I was listening to Frida's I know there is something going on, over and over and over again.  I couldnt get enough of her "I know there is something going on" vocals and Phil's drums and electronic voice accompaniment. 

Now Im doing Against All Odds and Invisible Touch.   

It looks like you dont appreciate his musical genious...which is fine, so Ill spare you the links as I wont post them. LOL

I like to strike a line between talent and appeal.
I'm sure famous opera singers & ballet dancers are highly talented within their field, just keep that crap away from me. ;)
No doubt Collins had strong talent & produced 'good stuff', but it's certainly not in my record cabinet.
Olds- feel free to post away on the links; I merely reserve the right not to click on them. :P

EDIT :: all right- I listened to a third of #2 and
half of #4. There. :)

Plus Ill give you upvotes too!  Because of your willingness to exercise your freedoms of choice...of not to click on them.

And as these latest posts have been made, and with @dfelt's GnR song choice, I have been whisked away from the Phil Collins kick and unto something you might  appreciate even less. LOL  ( because of all the freedom talk Ive done since this morning  and its in the title...plus he is Greek)

Were you mesmerized by Frida's vocals and Phil's drums like I was in #4?   LOL  :D

No- I was not mesmerized. Frida was not producing 'good stuff'. More like 'junk stuff'. ;)
Phil was very good, esp in his day. I was probably struck by it on Miami Vice as unique music, but I just have no use for 80s pop/whateverthatwas now.

Song #4 was produced by Phil. There many familiar Genesis/Phil Collins elements in that song.  I think that Genesis was doing there own thing with Peter Gabriel at the helm, especially with Gabriel and after Gabriel, when Phil kinda took over the music direction  and set pop trends in the 1980s.  

I love 1980s pop. But Im no fool to think that it aint what Im complaining about today's music. It was. But there are many 1980s pop stars that set the musical trends for everyone else to follow. Prince, Phil Collins, Michael Jackson to name a couple are such of those pop stars.  

Frida and Abba.  Im not very familiar with their trends. I do not know if they were creators and were not the emulators. But I also know that Abba was pretty big. 

Now...was it junk?  Well, it certainly was kinda like junk food like BBQ chips...sure.  But pure junk?   I dunno. Not being sarcastic. I really do not know.

I could say with ease, glam rock group Poison was junk.  I love their music. Still do. But junk.  One reason why rock faded away was because of too many music producers were rolling out groups like Poison.  

Im not trying to school you Balthy. Im just wanting to confirm to you that I understand you and where you are coming from.
