Not sure how much I'll be able to participate, but let's start it off...

 

 

I really enjoyed that song.  I'm one who does not have to have lyrics if the melody is pleasing to the ear.

What was that?  Have you been hanging out with Herr Fick?

Classic, pre-Phil Collins controlled Genesis, but at the point where on-stage theatrics were overshadowing the music.

Thanks for the critique! I try and mix it up a bit, but it's always 'sitting in front of the PC' type stuff.

 

I'm noticing a bit of a theme in your choices, so in the same vein...but also a bit of retaliation for not liking my second song: :rofl:

If only I worked from 9-5.  It's been more like 0600 to 1800 at the office, plus on-call after hours.  My day off was shorter, only 0900 to 1500.

:(

 

Working on straight commission, I worked up to 12 hours a day easy. Plus every other Saturday all day. Have to do what you need to do to put a roof over your head and support your family.

Okay boys and girls, lets go back to 1966. I was eight years old, and my next to the oldest brother Jim would play The Beach Boys every morning before leaving for school. My oldest brother Dick, who used to wake me up every morning playing Elvis and Buddy Holly, was in 1966 away at Boot Camp after joining the National Guard.

 

 

In 1970 my brother Jim joined the National Guard and my sister Patti took over the stereo after he left...

Always thought Genesis was more than the sum of its parts, but I'd guess the most 'control would come from Tony Banks.

 

Strangely, Tony Banks is the only one that I can't think of anything they've done outside Genesis apart from the early drummers.

I thought Genesis were excellent from 1970 (Trespass) to 1983 (Genesis) despite the change of personnel and style. After that, meh...

The peak for me was 'Selling England by the Pound'

 

Anyway, looks like we're back to hair bands. :D

It's Sunday, I'm tired, I now have a cold, and although still on-call (as usual), it's unlikely I'll have to work today.  Next week is going to be another killer week, so I'm chilling this Sunday.

Oh, yeah, the early music videos that attempted to be artistic or to tell a story.  Some were good, some were bad, some were just freaky weird.

 

Not the "official video", but it does accurately fit the song.

Good stuff. I wondered what happened to the girl that inspired that Boomtown Rats song and it seems she's still banged up after 40 years.

 

Monday, what should I do, Mamas & Papas?, Bangles?

No this, for sentimental reasons:
