ahahahahahaha!!! Teach me to write while keeping an eye out for the powers that be.

I meant Charlie Watts, of course.

OK, what did I miss here (I've been known to miss the obvious before....)........wasn't John Bonham in Led Zeppelin????

Now for the image of the day, which no one will be able to get out of their heads.......picture Robert Plant dressed as Madonna in her "missile bra" singing Achy Breaky Heart, backed by Jimmy Page dressed as Justin Timberlake and playing a Gibson double neck ukelele, and John Paul Jones and John Bonham (before he died) dressed like the boys in Menudo!!!!!!!

Go on, try to get THAT image out of your mind!!!!! Parents beware, your children are becoming monochromatic

I think that can be rivaled by Ozzy Osbourne, singing with NKOTB, while doing the dancesteps.

Okay - you two are scaring me!!!!
Pretty soon you'll have Country Joe and the Fish doing High School Musical XII...

T - we know you're head is flooded with 80s hits so not thinking clearly

Keith Moon - The Who
CHarlie Watts - Rolling Stones
John Bonham - Led Zeppelin
Ringo Starr - Beatles (that one you may have gotten right)

I screwed up the first one so tried to make it up with a mix-up the second time round. Hee hee! Course I know Mr. Watts was with the Stones. Cause Neil Pert was with the Who, see.

Now I didn't know that. I knew Neil Peart was with Rush. (Okay, Beerman had to remind me..) Who knew there were two of them!!!

Note to self... Try to remember to bring this thread back to topic tomorrow...

Disco didn't die it just evolved into other garbage. Sorry to all the Pop fans out there for this next comment. But simple disco backround melodies are all over poppy hiphop songs. If you ignore the heavy bass and the lyrics often it sounds like Mother Goose wrote these melodies

I always blame it on ABBA. (soulless music made on demand with a formula, first girl/boyband, and shoved through people's throat by the marketing dept. of the recordcompany)

Ah, but maybe you'll manage to go the same way U2 and some other rock bands went. There is a CD out there with ABBA songs covered by their former "enemies" in a symbolic bow to them.

Abba might have been pop, but it was great pop.

You can always note just how great they were when you have some semi-talented singers of a casted band that try to cover ABBA songs. These covers are usually so badly mangled it really hurts. What not many people know is that both women of ABBA were trained as opera/musical singers and what sounds easy and effortless in the recordings has technical difficulties that not many pop singers can handle.

I also disagree on the "soulless music" comment, but that is another story. The Lyrics of some songs are great though; mainly because the composers have put a lot of themselves into them, especially near the end.

t-maia is right. Nomatter the genre of the music you can't really come down on someone that puts their all into something. Some pop (not even close to all) are good works with a lot of effort put into them. Props to those who work their music to its highest potential. They may not be good tunes for me but still great in their own respect. Listen to the compositions on old 80's pop and you will see more of this well writen pop music.
