Horslips are Ireland's greatest ever rock band. They shit all over U2, and I would say they slightly edge out the Cranberries.
By the way, when do you think that last song came out? It sounds 20 years more recent than the other two, but from my research, it actually came out in 1979.

Derided at its time as a tepid, contrived synthpop piece from New Romantic's tail end through which singer Phil Oakey was allegedly staggering listlessly and with audible disinterest in the lyrics, it's arguably nowadays looked on as an 80s music staple.
The Human League didn't really drop the ball until their 1990 album "Romantic?", which was a failed attempt to revert to early 80s synthpop soundscapes, at a time when grunge was already on the horizon.

"Slave to the Rhythm" was actually written for Frankie Goes To Hollywood by Trevor Horn. The latter then decided at the last minute before he let FGTH have a go that it was more suited for Grace Jones. A ground-up reworking of the track then resulted in the swingin' little number that became one of the most iconic pop music singles of the mid-80s.

That's easy, >>8980 is the key. Every genre of music from every decade you ever enjoyed has a foreign language equivalent somewhere, just waiting for you to discover it as though it's new releases. Best of all, they sing in mucky foreign languages so if the lyrics are as embarrassing as the lyrics of the stuff you listened to as a teenager, you don't have to find out.

Not sure if this belongs here or in the decent covers thread, but this absolutely does it for my inner ADHD 10 year old.
There's some mildy obnoxious fannying about until 2:12, but in my addled state I think it adds rather than detracts.

Never realised that anti-depressants stop all emotions - that seems quite counter-intuitive.
|>>|| No. 13099
Emotional blunting and/or apathy is a common but not universal side-effect of antidepressants. We aren't really sure if it's an effect of the drug or a residual symptom of partly-resolved depression, i.e. you don't feel miserable any more but you don't feel good either. Research ethics rules make it very difficult to give healthy patients antidepressants just to see what happens.

I had an opportunity to see Skunk Anansie live recently, which I declined because I'm not really a live-music person, but now I can't stop listening to their songs and being reminded of how enormously fantastic Skunk Anansie are.
Here is Skin from Skunk Anansie, singing one of their ballads with none other than Luciano Pavarotti himself. Not only is it great because it's a good song which showcases Skin's incredible voice, but because it's Pavarotti, she just sings it in Italian with him. That's phenomenal.

I saw her like 8 years ago in the Newcastle O2, and that was mildly disappointing because it was all new stuff. Has she conceded and realised that's what people want or are her gigs more oriented towards the new stuff?
She crowdsurfed a bit and I think I touched her at some point which was nice.
Saw the Smashing Pumpkins at the same venue around the same time and Billy Corgan told an audience member that he was ruining the vibe, then I looked into the smashing pumpkins documentaries and found out he was an egomaniacal bellend but still, good craic.

I love small gigs with relatively big bands, like when they're well known amongst music people but not necessarily massive commercially, it's such a unique vibe.
My favourite is when I went to see Exodus about 10 years ago, and Gary Holt asked for a show of hands how many people bought the new album, then how many people downloaded it. There were far more hands for the latter, so he said "What the fuck, guys?" and someone yelled with the most perfect comedic timing "It's ten quid, ya cunt!"

I saw Arctic Monkeys at the Leadmill the night their second album launched at midnight. They ended with Old Yellow Bricks, and sure enough everyone was bouncing around and singing along to a song that wasn't out yet. Alex Turner got a laugh out of it, at least, and they used to give out their music for free at gigs anyway.
|>>|| No. 13113
My favourite small gig, and it wasn't that small but it felt it, was seeing Queens of the Stone Age in 2018 in Tokyo. For a band you would think can sell out big arenas, this was a really intimate venue. I remember practically smelling Josh Homme and his er, drunken rambling.

I thought this guy looked and sounded familiar. How does he get away with it?
>Due to the failure of Johnny Moonshine, Jakobsen moved on in search of a newer, more 'annoying' sound. He chose the style of eurodance, which was just becoming popular in the mid 1990s, and began his career as the fake Indian "Dr. Bombay"

Brownfacing and cultural appropriation hadn't been invented yet in the late 90s.
Although in the case of "Dr. Bombay", olivefacing might be the correct term.

I always get Demis Roussos mixed up with Glenn Medeiros. But you can have a lot of fun with obscure disco music; I think I have already spammed the "Songs in foreign languages" thread with the stuff I often listen to, so I won't post it here, but I've always thought The Ultimate Warlord by The Immortals needs more attention:
And German pop star Sandra (foreign, but sang in English) used to be in a disco group called Arabesque, whom I have recently started listening to but not always enjoying:

Veering into space disco a bit there, eh.
> But you can have a lot of fun with obscure disco music
There's loads of modern club music these days which contains obscure disco samples. My guess is it's both because the rights to the sample will be cheap to obtain as it wasn't a big hit in its day, and most people won't know immediately that you've ripped off an old disco track.
A good place to investigate when a song sounds suspiciously 70s or even 80s is whosampled.com. It is by now a huge database of songs that sample other songs.

This song was playing on the radio once while I was in the dying stages of a relationship with a lass. We were sitting on her couch on a Sunday night, in dead silence after a weekend of massively getting on each other's tits, but at that point in time I guess we were both still coming to grips with the realisation, you know, that point where you're looking down the barrel of inevitability but still can't believe your relationship is running through your hands like that. Where you know something's very wrong but you've run out of ideas how to fix it. So what wasn't helping at all was that this song suddenly came on, very accurately summing up our situation. I was going to ask her if I should change the station, but was worried that that would look like I was acknowledging it. So I just sat there waiting for the moment to pass, knowing full well that she was probably thinking the same.
We did break up the following weekend. And she told me that listening to that song with me was the moment she realised that it was actually over. Maybe I should have changed the station.

I was talking to one of the younger lasses at work the other week about my most recent ex, like you do, just passing time filling them in on the gossip from your life and so on. I mentioned pretty much exactly this, how there's always that bit towards the end of a relationship where you've had an argument or some Big Event occured, and deep down, you know it's over from that moment on., but it takes a while to sink in.
I realised, when she responded with "Really? That's quite sad..." that she has never experienced it herself. She couldn't relate, because she's never been through it, the lad she's with now is her first proper relationship and she still has all that to come. For some reason that made me feel quite emotional, partially I think because it sort of puts the weariness and jading process of age into perspective. But also part of me just hopes she never does. I don't even really like this lass, she's a bit of a cunt frankly, but it's a horrible thing to go through and I remember how it was the first time I did. I wish nobody had to.
Anyway. Shite song, I've always thought it was quite impressive how massive Robbie Williams was at one point in the late 90s, and then just completely vanished into thin air over the turn of the millenium.

Ignorance is bliss. There's just a magic about your first love that's impossible to replicate with subsequent relationships. You'll never be as
naive wide eyed again, the more relationships you enter and break up again, the more there's always that sense of jadedness. Even if it's like, wow, this person is just so great, this is really going great, I've really met someone good this time, I'm so in love. In the back of your head, there'll always be that nagging thought that it could all just end badly again despite everybody's best intentions.
That was something that was absent from my first relationship. It was like the possibility of a breakup was just a distant rumour. Something that happened to other people, but not us. How could it. Because we were so perfect for each other. Which is why it knocked the shit out of me all the more when after two years, she suddenly told me she simply didn't love me anymore and no longer wanted to be with me. Pretty straightforward stuff really, there was no other lad in the picture (and believe me, I checked), she just didn't want me anymore. Something that millions of people deal with every day. But it was like a fall from paradise. Took me another two years and a few lukewarm romances and one night stands to get that out of my system again.
Self sage for rambling.

You're giving me flashbacks to similar happening to me, to my mates and having to tell someone the same after I'd just grown apart from her. It equally hurts you over the long-term as well, loving someone is harder as you get older because you build up defences to the hurt that can come with it.
If only a 90s pop-superstar had a song for just such a predicament...
