Re: Overrated Music

Phil Collins himself has admitted he was over-exposed by the late 80s. Appearing on both sides of the Atlantic at Live Aid was a great novelty at the time. But probably came to epitomise how he was 'everywhere'. Which led to subsequent indifference towards him and Genesis, when in reality they did s...

Re: Overrated Music

Yes, they could be good in their prog years as well - and early single 'I Know What I Like In Your Wardrobe' was great. :D

Re: Your Blur Record Collection

I consider myself a very keen fan, but not a completist.

Therefore I have:

* All the albums on CD, bought new at the time.

* Several singles, especially those of the 'Britpop' period.

Nothing wrong with completists by the way, I admire your dedication. :D

Re: Happy Birthday Blur!! She's so High 24th anniversary

I don't remember 'She's So High' being released - it will have gained some airplay on evening radio shows. But I didn't know it until I bought the album. Always liked 'There's No Other Way', from when it first entered the UK top 40. I remember the enthusiasm of Radio 1 DJ Mark Goodier as he announce...

Re: October 16, 2000, Music is my radar: End of an era.

I see where you are coming from JAIME.

Wouldn't like to say it was the end of an era - Blur were losing their potency as a group, but Damon has gone on & on, very consistently.

Re: The Kinks Thread

Alan Freeman incorrectly announced him as 'Ray Davies'. :oops: Yeah..that was hysterical, but sad in a sense because even then Dave wanted to escape Ray's shadow and be well respected in his own right... I assume that the other Kinks played on Dave's solo records of that period? Making them, in eff...

Re: Overrated Music

Genesis had a great run of hit singles in the UK late 70s-early 80s.

They fitted in well with the scene at the time - Follow You Follow Me, Turn It On Again, Abacab, Paper Late, Mama. 8-)

Like others, they were not so good in the-post Live Aid globalisation :(

Re: The "Covers" Thread

Great to have that as your Class Song, KLL 8-)

We had no such thing where I went to school. But if we did, that is the sort of song I would have chosen.
