maybe the english version of Dragostea din tei, just for the line

I sold my street, my songs, and dreams
And I bought some pants to match the colors of my love

For me it was blues, mainly. That, the Dead Milkmen and stuff like Oasis/Blur/Pulp.

It's struck me that the Offspring's later singles, "The Kids Aren't All Right" and "Why Don't You Get A Job" in particular, make them sound like crotchety old men complaining about how kids are these days.

"Bad Habit" was fun to sing along with at the top of your lungs, though. :D

Dad used to crank that in the car... he passed music down, we passed it up. We still swap CDs, although mostly classic rock or reggae stuff.

Have you tried Tangerine Dream? Stratosfear, Rubycon etc were electronic/progressive crossover albums often popular with Floydies in the 70s. Especially "Echoes" fan type Floydies.

I remember 'Tangerine Dream', they were always paying live in churches and cathedrals!

I remember there was a near riot in a Mexican town when the power supply proved inadequate for all their computers at one concert. Floyd used to insist on two fully qualified electrical engineers on site at venues after a few issues like that.

TD were/are German, like Kraftwerk, but their music was more dreamy progressive 20 minute track computer generated stuff instead of 4 minute tracks. It seemed "far out" and leading edge in 1976, but might seem old hat to the hip-hop/trance/rap/Scooby-snack-snack/popular-beat-combo generation.
In general, other progressive contemporaries of Floyd such as Genesis and Yes, don't seem to have aged so well.

Genesis

Postby black bart on Fri Sep 15, 2006 10:44 am

I must disagree with you about Genesis...they were the best up until about 1985 ish. I still love their old stuff now and I don't think many bands have produced an album like 'The Lamb Lies Down.' If you look at the band members that made up Genesis and take their music into account as well their legacy is quite amazing.

Arrrrgh. Haven't had a Floyd v Genesis fight for thirty years. If I wasn't so old I could probably remember some of the arguments. Think it was that Genesis were long-haired, public school, drug-taking, tree-hugging hippy weirdoes, whereas Floyd...
No that wasn't it. Rats.

Clocks

Postby black bart on Fri Sep 15, 2006 6:49 pm

Yep...it takes me back aswell. Floyds albums were full of clanking chains, clocks and other daft sound effects! You got your money's worth in those days though: Supper's Ready 30 minutes for one song - well worth 79p on I Tunes!!!

Yeah, but it's the solidity of the matter... it's not much of a gift if it's all 1's and 0's....

No, I have these solid CD's here, that I have since put into digital form, but the unneeded discs stil sit here. I don't really need them anymore.
