I was thinking back for no real reason and thought of this song I used to listen to all the time. I had a casette player and this tape and carried it around with me playing this song. I must have been all of 5 or 6 years old. Can you guys think of any similar songs you listened to as a kid for no real reason.

^^^^Me too. They still thump that hard in some clubs here. It's a great song and was their only hit.

Two songs I remember from when I was young were "Saturday's Alright For Fighting" by Elton John and "Great Balls Of Fire" by Jerry Lee Lewis. It was the heaviest music I had ever heard and it pushed me towards seeking out and finding bands like Kiss, Aerosmith, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin, Cheap Trick and Judas Priest. I really feel sorry for the kids nowadays because music has never been weaker. There are tons of great bands out there but the mainstream stuff that most kids are exposed to is garbage. It's up to them to search out and find stuff that they truly like, just like we did.

We had The Beatles and Led Zeppelin and they have Lady Gaga and Kanye West. Sad.

Back in the 80's MTV was just that, music videos. Over time the network slowly killed themselves with all those dang "reality" shows and fluff IMO.


I'm 100% positive you remember Friday night videos and Head Banger's Ball.

80's music ruled. Be it pop, rock or dance. The Madonna era began with an explosion along side the late MJ. There were so many pioneers from that decade.



***Looks over at dusty cd collection**

Your absolutly right paul,pioneers. And alot of the music(beats) that you hear today are just old 80s songs remade/remixed. I often wonder when my kids grow up, who are they going to have to look back on? Lady gaga? Lil wayne?


Btw,one of my favorite 80s groups.
Gotta love the mustache! lol

now we're posting REAL music - great posts !

but hall & oats is NOT a group , they are a duo


since i got high speed net about 2yrs ago i started D\L like crazy all the great hits i remember & those i remember playing on the radio that were way b4 my time but i appreciate those really old good ol days when ppl had actual talent & not just have some1 make them a beat so they can yap to , ask how many of today's "artists" can actually play a real musical instrument & very few will say yes


if u really want to hear what ppl sang & listen to way back when go d\l some of the TIME\LIFE collections , truly great music ...

First cassette (album) I bought was Bon Jovi's "Slippery when wet". Of course I had been listening to music off the radio and watching MTV for awhile by then but my first $ spent on music was on them. Then the flood gates opened when I got my first job (at 16). From Eric Carmen to the Bangles. Poison to Ozzy. Alice Cooper to Alice in chains. Def Leppard was a fav. White Lion, Stealheart, Guns N Roses, ect, ect, ect. In High School I was a metal head. In my 20's I was clubbing and into dance/trance/house.



I have no problem with my masculinity admitting that one of my favorites artists was MJ himself. (Back before he went into lala land). Man in the mirror, Billy Jean, Smooth criminal, ect, were just iconic of the era.

^Sean, did you have a mullet when your were growing up?lol

@Rovin Your right, i stand corrected.

I just love music in general. My collection has everything from Marvin Gaye to Pantera and everything in between. Only thing though,i just cant get into country music at all. Ive tried,but i just cant get into it. All the songs just sound the same to me.

^^^Many country music lovers feel the same about rap and metal. Country is a HUGE genre followed by more ppl than any other. (At least I believe so). Not to mention Country has come a long ways since Hee-Haw times lol.

Nothing to laugh at. Any music which inspires you is valuable.


So long as it doesn't inspire you to "bust a cap in someone's azz".

Lol.


I particularly like Enya myself. Michael Buble as well.

MANY ppl have heard of Deep Forest but just never knew their name. They made the song that the popular guy named Matt used on his vids traveling the world "dancing".


Very cool!


This is only one of them. I loved this guy.

Paul,i think your right. A friend of mine is a country boy and he says the same thing about the music i listen to. But doesnt it seem like they sing about the same things over an over? I mean how many times can you sing about your wife leaving you taking the dog an the ford truck?lol Idk,i guess every genre of music is the same just put together different.



Btw, No Hip hop lovers here?






And Sean, im not so sure i beleive you on the mullet thing? lol

Hey when I was into dance/trance music everyone who wasn't into it said the music was repetitious. Same beat over and over. In a sense they were right. Same goes with cars I suppose. Some models I can't stand to even look at yet others drop $30,000 on them.


In the game of life that can be said almost about everything.

Cars, music, women, food, ect. Whatever floats your boat.

i grew up listening to groups like motley crue, poison, ratt, and stryper. then guns and roses came along and slowly started to kill the glam metal and nirvana just finished the job.

now i love groups like as i lay dying, all that remains, unearth, and children of bodom.
