Great selection. It broke my sound card. Seriously. :)

Listening to U2, War.

Man this makes me angry. what an excellent band that went and destroyed themselves. Maybe only the chilli peppers and metallica have done better at destroying their value.

Anyway great album. Queuing up boy for next.

I think I like boy slightly better than war. But nowadays I see Unforgettable fire as the more classic of all their albums. Looking back the mullet on bono is a bit of a worry. U2 were good till that Joshua tree album and then they got popular in america and I dropped them like a hot stone.

Joshua tree had the jangle jangle jangle guitar (which sucked but wasn't massive in the states from memory)

Watchtower had the "let's rip off BB King" (which sucked and was massive in the states)

Unfortunately they both have a couple of okay songs which makes the delineation hard to stand by outside of the idea that they have become "any other band".

It is like they sound like someone trying to rip their sound off.

True. A couple of later albums have found their way to my pod. But you always hate yourself for enjoying them. :music: You may be right, the Joshua tree album might have since become popular in the states (as well as the earlier albums I liked) It was perhaps the first album aimed squarely at the American market. The gospel overtones must be irresistible to the yanks. If you haven't seen "Star Stories" episode "How I became Jesus" with "bono" it's a hoot. :laugh:

Just saw Roger Hodgson (Supertramp) tonight, (and 10CC ho ho) and Buddy Guy last week (and Taj Mahal), both at the Enmore Theatre. Of course if you went to the Byron Blues 'n' everything else festival you would have seen a lot of things. Roger Hodgson was last in Australia in 1976, and he signed my Crime of the Century LP and sheet music playbook. Buddy Guy played Voodoo Chile just like Hendrix to prove how easy it was.

Play: blues harp, keys, some guitar.

Listen: eclectic, tastes broadened as I got older...

An RE song.

Those (GenX I suppose) who ever sung along to the ABC songbook in primary school will know the tune.

I remember it well. I listened to it the other day in a solemn moment, god we are suckers. Little boxes (on the hillside, little boxes made of ticky tacky) that we give half our weekly life for (bank interest allowing for a city person to get to and from work) so the bank can make a quid.

Always strikes me as odd that I spend all day staring at a screen for my crust only to come home to my little box and in my spare time do the same thing. :wacko:

Time for sleep - perchance to dream. I think I'll dream of owning a garden the size of the one I saw on "Italian food safari" tonight. And with as rich a harvest. -_-:)

Not sure we would have got on in 82 Bernie. :laugh: I was 16. Into punk and alternate. Might explain why I had no girlfriend and was very worried about nuclear war. :shocking: I know each and every one of these songs though. Listening to Supertramp at the mo and thinking of transitioning to a flock of seagulls. :blush: Cheers mate. Time heals old wounds eh?* :music:

*Except for that Toni Basil song - It's still sh*te. ;)
