Nearly time for an 80's-90's thread.

Music died after that pretty much apart from a handful of exceptions. Feel sorry for kids nowadays being force-fed computerised, mostly talentless tripe.
For the most part i agree. Kids these days dont know what they are missing out on. So much of the modern music simply has no beat.

You wait and wait and wait for the beat to drop or the temp to change but nothing errr.

That said there is some good stuff around, its just harder to find.
There is lots of good music around some of it borrows from the old - Greta Van Fleet have some great riffs and the singer sounds like Page. Muse, Killers, queens of the Stone Age, two pieces like royal blood, polish club and black pistol fire. Also heard a song the other day from a band called magpie salute called omission, great riffs

Sure the 60's and 70 were great they were truely pioneers, Aussie rock was outstanding in the 70 and 80, grung with bands like nirvana, pearl jam, soundgarden, Alice in chains and so on.

Music evolves and revolves but there is always a room for more.
Same, I love it when i can hear the bands i like and the influence they have on a modern artists. However i also like a lot of new material that is a long way removed from our generation. Having a young teenager does that to you. Sometimes you just have to say yeah thats pretty cool, i like it.

There is some good original and very modern music out there that is worth a listen.
Its an opinion!

Who are some of the modern bands/singers you would recommend?
Cog would be the band I would recommend from the last few years. Five Finger Death Punch have some great songs if you like hard rock, plenty of booming drums, kickarse guitars and Pantera-inspired vocals. Beaut music for a drink or ten!

I only listen to mainstream radio and find nothing recent to gloat over. The missus likes Ed Sheerin and a few others that I think are only passable. I went through every craze including Elvis to Midnight Oil but almost nothing afterwards. Not teeny bopper stuff and punk though - I had my reservations.

I come to exactly same conclusion as the Patriot who I only recently realised is that former poster with that US basketball avatar after I confused his current with tommy r. Getting old I can't remember his former username. I listen to classical music instead of the current rubbish - lively piano concertos are my favourite. I favour from Beethoven to Rachmaninoff. Apparently Nights in White Satin included some Bach. I even prefer Aussie Give me a home amongst the gumtrees over industrial music.

Whiter Shade has been included in all these movies as Wiki reported
The song has been included in many music compilations over the decades and has also been used in the soundtracks of numerous films, including The Big Chill, Purple Haze, Breaking the Waves, The Boat That Rocked, Martin Scorsese's segment of New York Stories, Stonewall, Oblivion and Ken Burns and Lynn Novick's documentary series The Vietnam War. Cover versions of the song have also been featured in many films, for example, by King Curtis in Withnail and I and by Annie Lennox in The Net.

This is bloody ridiculous.
from Wiki
"A Whiter Shade of Pale" has continued to receive critical acclaim. Along with Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody", "A Whiter Shade of Pale" was jointly recognised as "The Best British Pop Single 1952–1977" at the BRIT Awards, part of Elizabeth II's Silver Jubilee.
-------------------------------------------

The song was only written as a response to Beatle's Hey Jude. Surely some of the Beatles and Rolling Stone and Kinks and Animals songs deserve the award over this song.

The local FM station has jazz run by volunteers and they pick the sleepiest songs ever made and they attribute famous rock songs to brain-dead jazz musicians who re-record them at about 5rpm. When I blast them they put my call on radio and apologise for their mistakes.

they played LIght my fire and attributed it to Jose Feliciano then a newer version that was at about 2 1/2 rpm so I blasted on radio that they put the bloody fire out - killed the song DEAD.

I play the song about every second day, the classical remake mentioned above that I prefer over the original - Beatles Yesterday was song of the century and had about double the cover versions of Shade of Pale. another great remake is the classical version of Nights of White Satin. Satisfaction (stones) had a greater impact - it was regulation at every venue I attended. There are about 500 Beatle cover groups but how many procol Harum cover groups?

I was amazed when first found it that they given the song such significance with an orchestra. Joe Cocker's version is okay as well.

I thought they just recorded the same generic drum beat on one song, liked it, and pasted it over every track they ever recorded.

Do you know the song"? I have the double white album and ringo is complaining that "I have blisters on my fingers" from the number of times he had to thrash the drums for this song - you are caught with your pants down trying to perform a Hopoate

OR was Ringo doing something else to get blistered fingers?
