As a follow up to the Channel 4 ‘Music of the Millenium’ post here is a new guess list to take your mind away from other stuff.
As I am clearing out my loft I have come across a 2001 publication entitled “The 100 Best Recoed Covers’ published by Q magazine.
Unlike the previous post this one does not prioritise one choice over another but lets you just guess what is on the list.
On you go…and images will add to the fun!
I have just come across a magazine a listed in the blog title that I purchased in 1999.
It has a series of top 10 or 20 lists included in it that where obviously voted for by Channel 4 viewers and readers at the time.
Let’s see if you can guess these:
1.The best 20 songs of all time
I’ll post a new list each day to keep up the fun!
I haven’t played this is years but just came across it whilst rooting through some old CDs.
Amazing line up and not a bad track on the album. The best prog rock supergroup ever?
Cnuts all of them.
I saw Gillan at the ABC after a full day on the beach in December 1981.
The memories never fade!
The soundtrack to cooking lunch on a Saturday!
What a truly joyous song!
A nice podcast with 20 somethings discussing XTC records produced years before they’re born.
2000 copies are now available at £32 rather than the £100+ 0n reseller sites.
A great prog album.
I am sure many here are already are aware of this but if not here are some great XTC based podcasts.
Having bought my cheap DVD player add on to my MacBook Air I have been exploring a large box of music DVDs in the attic that I haven’t watched in years.
I started with what on here have been seen as amongst the best and in the last two (work) days I have managed to watch the 25th anniversary of The Band Last Waltz and Stop Making Sense by Talking Heads.
Both excellent as I remembered them from 15+ years ago when I last watched them.
I have the long Tom Petty documentary set up next.
Any recommendations for cheap music DVDs not available in any other form greatly appreciated. Didn’t think I would be saying that in 2020!
My kids want to watch a lot of my old DVDs as some of the films are not available on other options so I need an external player I can safely plug into my 2019 MacBook Air. No USB connection just the little Apple thing.
Any suggestions greatly appreciated.
My son is 10 this month and would like a virtual reality headset as a present.
This is something I know nothing about but assume can be out of date as quickly as any new technology can be.
Any suggestions from the Massive.
Budget of £3-500 for something at least a bit future proof.
I use MSc MRPharmS with business colleagues within the healthcare industry.
Is this a good idea?
Just started on a binge worthy weekend of joy.
No better place to start than Kylie’s amazing set from last year.
Enjoy the tunes…looking forward to the Bowie set when I can find time away from the missus and kids!!
With some time on my hands I have been revisiting the records of my youth.
I came across this beauty that I haven’t heard in over 30 years.
It is a power pop/AOR classic from 1979. The band supported ELO on their Out Of The Blue Tour and also supported Boston in the UK in 1979 – good credentials.
Some obvious ELO references in there but a great singer and top tunes.
Album link in the comments.
I would he assume he set out from London with this.
It would appear the current Home Secretary has this problem.
Should I care?
I watch Britains Got Talent to keep the peace with the kids and Auntie Wheaty during these strange times (apparently it is family time) but beyond that ITV leaves me cold.
The title above is a direct quote adverting the next show.
Fuck me…how did it come to this!
Just stumbled across that on some other site.
Any other great shop names?
God I;m bored!
Where do we go from here?
