Great! Never heard that one before. That’s what makes this thread useful (unlike the posts of lists proving that the poster has the pedestrian mainstream taste.)
I’ll see your Tangerine Dream and raise you with early Kraftwerk
Kraftwerk - Ruckzuck
Then tell us, explain, the purpose of, uh, sharing with us those lists of yours.
What makes one valuable to others is uniqueness of one’s contribution, I think. Who needs to know my recipe for apple pie, or for mashed potatoes, which is already known to everyone. I’ll give you a recipe for mashed potatoes that includes bulgarian buttermilk and bacon chips. Not many know it.
Popular taste is Danielle Steel, Thomas Kinkade and Dan Brown, thank you very much, I’ll pass. As for Peter Frampton, his multi-million selling album “Frampton Comes Alive” was at one point on the lists of the worst rock albums ever. Popular taste. What’s to brag about if you follow the crowd?
In honor of Peter Banks
Yes - No Opportunity Necessary, No Experience Needed
Notice though, that’s Steve Howe in the video, even though he didn’t play on the studio version.
Sure you can:
Fraternity - Seasons of Change
If you’ve never heard this, you might be shocked as to who the lead singer is.
Ripple is great
Saw Dead many times...last time i visited Bear actually. 1978
Anyhow hipster generational bigots here think we should all be lined up and shot
Any generation thinks Will Ferrell is hilarious is FUBAR
Man, that's cold. I'm an old acid rock, headbanging, psychedelic funkateer from way back (pushing 60 now), and I absolutely love Nickelback.
Are You Gonna Be There? At the Love-In
The Chocolate Watchband
Hurdy Gurdy man
Alan Parker....the epitome of an underrated guitarist
So YOU'RE the one. ;)
I'd like to see you say that to my wife! At least they can sing a beautiful tune. That is one of the factors which made the Beatles successful was their ability to sing well and in harmony. A number of the hard rock bands went on to make big success despite being unable to sing. That is what has led us to the rotten excuses for music released in more recent years. I'm more interested in the melody and instrumentals, so I can tolerate some of the hard rock better than my wife. She is only interested in the lyrics and vocals, so the instrumentals in much of the hard rock unless it harmonizes right is just so much noise to her. For the same reasons she doesn't much care for classic symphonies. I like the classical music because of the instrumentals.
I had a girlfriend back in the day who drew a picture of us floating off into the blue yonder, inspired by the song “If”, so don’t pay any attention to the naysayers.
Oh yeah!!!. In my case, I like so many others led a Jeckyl/Hyde music life. On a date, or with a girl friend, it would be Bread, the Eagles, Meatloaf, Dan Fogelberg, etc. By myself or with buds??.... 100 db of Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, etc. in the 8 Track!!!!!
Ping for later
