    Eurythmics

    LOL. Even Eurythmics can pull off both getting their 80s videos rescanned in HD AND replace the previous one on YouTube.

    Thanks. I love I'm a Marionette in both incarnations btw even if I'm not the biggest fan of Thank You for the Music. What about the proto Hole in Your Soul "Get On the Carrousel"?

    Really awful to see this in the news.
  6. So sorry to hear this from our fellow Brazilian membeed. Lets hope his ideas are not translated into reality.

    Chavez did the same in Venezuela. Look how it turned out.
  8. It's him that should be euthanized and not the poor dog that just acted on instinct, chewing on something "edible".

    Arctic Monkeys

    So their new album is out. Wtf? Expect this to be polarizing as hell with their fanbase. Especially coming after "AM".

    Nancy is such an underrated vocalist. Yes, Ann can do all sort of things with her voice but Nancy is great in her own right.

    By the way, back when we were discussing the different characters from their songs we forgot the unashamed gold diggers: Tracy and Daisy.

    So underrated. One of Agnetha's finest moments.

    Thing is they don't have a perfect album. They are all flawed.

    Anni-Frid is the smart choice here 😎 Cooler, groovier and with a quality to her voice that lends itself to more varied styles than the other A. But I love them both anyway.

    The pre internet days... I was 1 year old when The Visitors came out so it obviously didn't register in my mind at the time, but as my mom had the US pressing of "Greatest Hits" in cassette, which was very easy for me to manipulate and play as a kid in the hi fi system in the living room I fell in love with their music and as I grew up I started hunting for their other stuff. By the late 80s I already had "Arrival", "The Album", "Greatest Hits Vol. 2", "Gracias Por la Música", "Super Trouper" and "La Magia de ABBA", a regional (and brilliant) compilation that covered their hits between "Waterloo" and "Super Trouper". I had also seen at friends' houses "ABBA" and "Voulez Vous" so I was aware of their existence (I had the bad habit of checking which records people had hehe). So for all purposes ABBA's discography ended with the 'Super Trouper" era. It must have been around 1988 when I came across the Venezuelan pressing of "The Singles Vol 1"... The artwork in the back featured the covers of all their stuff available from that record label. Imagine how I felt when I saw the last picture after spending all my life so far trying to track down their music and thinking I was almost done by then: "What is this???". Considering "The Day Before You Came" was the only song I didn't know I incorrectly assumed it was from that album and started looking for it with no luck. Some years later "Gold" came along and it had "One of Us". I think the booklet specifically mentions the song is from "The Visitors". So another song to make me hunger for the full album. I don't think we got "More ABBA Gold" until much later so by the time I finally got my hands in the album -on CD and sometime around 1997- it was basically a full album of new songs for me but it took me about 10 years between knowing about it and getting to experience it. It's exciting to think we all might get to experience a bit of that again #soon isn't it?

    And also gave us the title track. Who knew cold war and political oppression could serve as the inspiration for brilliant synth pop?
  19. Indeed. My baby niece is from Miami and it stresses me to know all the stuff that goes down there.

    Weird inclusion as I don't think it was ever released as a single. But it was also included on the original Greatest Hits Vol. 2 release back in the day so I guess it makes sense to keep it.

    Not really a demo. It was the finished version and then it was edited down, kind of like what happened to Summer Night City. By the way, the original video used the full length version.

    Dreamboat Annie is such a great, magical, underrated album. Probably my favorite by them. One of those albums that take you somewhere else and makes you nostalgic about eras where you were not even born.

    Well, she was doing songs like this by the time the "Heart" album came out and smashed in 1985:
