    Thanks for the link, Lazenby880.
    Nice to hear what the kids are listening to at the moment. Quite a nice catchy beat.

    Well, I am rather street. :(|)

    Also listening to Mumm-ra, a brilliant band with the added quality of being named after a character in the best kids' programme ever.

    Cor, another good song. Really enjoyed that. Had me bopping away. She really has got me high. I love it when bands sing their reccuds in their native accents.

    Ah, yes, Mumm-ra, the villain from Thundercats.
    And my favourite show was The Wombles. They even had a band named after that show too!

    I'm digging these beats you're laying down, Lazenby880.

    Poptastic!

    Thank you Lazenby880. From your reverence for this show, I am deducing you must be in your mid-teens.
    What other cool beats are breaking in the playground? What hep to the beat, Daddy-O?

    I think it stopped showing at some point in the mid to late 80s. For a thirteen to sixteen year old to have watched it would be rather impressive. ;)

    Now listening to Thirteen Senses. Not sure if they are cool, but I like them.

    Well, looking at your erudite and knowledgeable posts throughout this site, Lazenby880, "impressive" is exactly the word I would use.

    13 Senses - ok, I'm writing this down.

    What else could someone who is still hip to be square enough to visit the discotheque on occasion listen to?

    I'm listening to a guy called Pete who's got a band called The Star 69 -his album is called This is Modern Soul -if you like Oasis, Paul Weller and Ocean Colour Scene you will like him. He hails from Scotland but lives in LA now -and apparently Modern Soul is getting some airplay stateside. got chatting to him via myspace -he's a cool guy.

    Couldn't agree with you more :D

    Getting Better by Kaiser Chiefs.

    A great Beatles track (but then, are there any that are not?), oft overlooked on the fabulous Sgt. Pepper... album.

    Someone else! :D I actually cannot stand Oasis. Blur were (are) one of the best British bands ever; inventive and fresh and evolving. Oasis's music and attitude I find boring; Roll With It sounds like a Status Quo cover to me.

    I just finished listening to the Bees again (watch the video for Listening Man here; it really is worth it) and am now listening to Electronic's Get The Message. Good early 90s stuff.
  • AlexAlex The Eastern SeaboardPosts: 2,695MI6 Agent
    Couldn't agree more with Getting Better, terrific track. Don't really think it needs to be covered, but it's all good. :)

    Right now I've got Dick Dale and the Del-Tones on.

    JE SUIS UN ROCKSTAR by Bill Wyman

    A forgotten classic that I recently rediscovered.

    Think I'll chew minty bubble gum and read Richie Rich comics while I'm at it.

    I blame Lady Rose :D

    Snakes and Arrows - the new album by Rush. It has been ever present on my car CD player for the past four weeks. It's a cracker!

    I don't mind Oasis, they have some good tracks but are mostly bland. Blur are far more inventive and more willing to push their music in different directions - Albarn has written some really good pop tunes so far and, what some consider to be, proper music.

    I don't mind The Bees either, and Electronic were great in their time too.

    Lovely Rita by Travis - not a great of Travis but they do a decent cover of this.

    Lately I've been listening to "Everybody Hurts" by R.E.M. on Youtube. I think it's a really good song. :D

    It's been said that the test of a good song is that it will survive re-interpretation, re-arrangement, etc, and still impress (to pick one example from many, Joe Cocker's "With A Little Help From My Friends" compared to the Beatles version).

    With that in mind, what did you think of Paul Anka's take on "Everybody Hurts" on his "Rock Swings" album?

    (PS I'd like to add that IMHO the true test of a good song is whether it can survive without either elaborate orchestration or electronic embellishment and still sound good on one or two instruments.)
