    Heart

    I searched for a thread to celebrate one of the all time best rock groups EVER. Heart. I couldn't find one, so here we go. Any fans?? I saw them a few years ago and was BLOWN AWAY by how good Nancy Wilson still sounds. I mean, seriously. She is an absolute force of nature. The entire arena shook when she hit some of those notes. I just love everything about them. Top songs: Magic Man Crazy On You These Dreams Never Alone Will You Be There (In The Morning) Stranded Gah, such a stellar discography!

    Kanye West

    That 'meeting' with Donald Trump was a disgusting display of narcissism by two alpha males with bloated egos. It looked like a Minstrel Show. A sad and pathetic display that showcased just how low our politics have become.

    Heart

    This performance of Stairway to Heaven is absolutely brilliant. She's probably the only person who could even attempt to sing a song like this and she did it to perfection. You could see how moved Jimmy Page was just watching it.

    2019 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Nominees

    It's abominable that Stevie Nicks isn't in there for her solo work. She's an absolute trail blazer and all around rock GODDESS. Roxy Music, the Cure, Chaka Khan, LL Cool J. And what about Donna fucking Summer? I don't believe she's in there. Another glaring absence.

    Enya

    I know this song is cheesy as all hell. But it always makes me bop my head.

    Westlife confirms reunion

    I only know of that one SAPPY song, Swear It Again. I don't think they had anything else that was remotely close to being a hit here in the states but that one song. It will always remind me of my first sexual encounter with a boy when I lived in California. I will never forget. The beginning of this song came on as he was starting to go down on me. What a song to have immortalized in my head for all eternity.
  7. I'm just REALLY REALLY REALLY hoping a FULL rendition of Papa Don't Preach. This song NEEDS some love on the next tour.

    Trump / US politics thread 🚽

    He did. He sounded like a modern day Trumpian Republican and was giving a performance aimed at ONE crowd and one crowd only: Fox News and Trump himself. And he succeeded in a spectacular fashion. After this pitiful, whiny, performance, what happened? Every single MAN on that judiciary committee RUSHED to his side. Defended him. Lashed out at the Democrats. Screamed and stomped their feet. He set the tone and they fell in line. It was a disgusting display of patriarchal domination and white male rage that will probably get him on the Supreme Court. They WANT him on the Court now more than ever. Because he will have an ax to grind. He will move so far to the right on ANY and EVERY progressive cause brought before him. It's a horrifying prospect.

    Favorite Original Movie Scores

    I've always loved the them from the Exorcist. It's a gorgeous piece of music. Tori Amos would include snippets of this on tour year ago. I think she still does it to this day.

    New NIKE campaign caused controversy

    He's a beautiful human being. The attacks on him are absolutely disgraceful. I never in my life thought I'd witness such outward racism towards someone that's played out on a national stage. That's PERPETUATED and ENCOURAGED by a sitting U.S President. I hang my head in shame lower and lower every day with what is going on in this country.

    Favorite Original Movie Scores

    I mean, Jurassic Park is just epic. That score sent chills down my spine as a kid when I first heard it and still transports me to the theatre where I first saw it when I was 10 years old. And of course these are ICONIC.

    It was also predicted that Hillary was going to win. We all know how accurate that was.

    New NIKE campaign caused controversy

    Trust me, the majority of us are embarrassed beyond words at the state of our country. And I don't see a way out of this mess any time soon. Impeaching Trump or voting him out in 2020 won't solve anything. This political tribalism on the right that encourages and promotes racism, sexism, and nationalism is going to be with us long after he's gone. I always said that electing him would open up a Pandora's Box of bullshit that we wouldn't be able to stomp out for at least a generation. It's worse than I ever imagined.

    Janelle Monae

    There are a lot of things wrong with the world. And the fact that this incredible woman isn't bigger than what she is is certainly one of them. If there is a Janelle Monae thread, I couldn't find it. She's got two new songs out and they're on fucking FIRE. She is one of the most effortlessly COOL individuals to come out in the music industry within the last 30 years. I have every single one of her albums and each one is fabulous in its own right. She is one of the ultimate victims of white mediocrity.

    80s New Wave

    And the undisputed QUEEN of New Wave and the crown jewel of their discography.....
  17. Right? His work with Disclosure and Calvin Harris completely shit all over everything he's put out on his own.
  18. I'm not a fan of Sam Smith in the LEAST........ But. I really love this. It's very early 90's house and his voice is far more tolerable on it than any of his shitty solo work. Love the video too. #NoShame

    New NIKE campaign caused controversy

    Oh you should see my social media feed. It’s simply incredible how upset people are over this. The blatant racism coming from people I’ve known for years is breathtaking.

    New NIKE campaign caused controversy

    This all started about 2 years ago when he would kneel during the playing of the our National Anthem at the beginning of football games. He was taking a knee in silent protest of racial injustice and the innocent killing of black men and woman by white cops during petty traffic stops. It really wasn't that big of a controversy until our Racist In Chief began tweeting about it 24/7 and screaming about it at his authoritarian rallies in PoDunk America. Then he, Fox News, and his minions began saying he was 'protesting the flag and OUR TROOPS'. Which is a blatant lie. But it worked. Middle America was APPALLED AND AGHAST that a bunch of BLACK football players wouldn't just SHUT THE FUCK UP and throw the ball. How DARE they take a knee in silent protest while our National Anthem is being played! So now Nike picked him to represent the Just Do It 30th anniversary campaign and all hell has broke lose again. It's one of the most unbelievable displays of fake outrage I've ever seen. You have these fucktards literally burning, cutting, destroying, and ripping up their Nike clothing in protest. Merchandise that's already bought and paid for. AND they're giving Nike a shit ton of free publicity. It's a funny thing to watch. Maybe instead, these pro-flag, pro anthem, pro-troop, pro-America TRUE AMERICANS could, oh I don't know, maybe donate their Nike gear to the poor, homeless veterans they pretend to care so deeply about.

    80s New Wave

    I can't believe I forgot about Drive! One of my absolute faves from the 80's. Such a great band.

    Troye Sivan

    I really enjoy the album. But I don't think it's anywhere near as good as his first one. That album was flawless and was always going to be hard to top. But an extremely solid follow up for sure. He's definitely going to be someone who I follow with whatever he releases. I will so, his voice has certainly matured and gotten stronger on this album. Plum, Lucky Strike, Animal, Bloom, and Postcard are the standouts.

    80s New Wave

    I would say the Cars are the undisputed kings of New Wave. I never get sick of their songs. Total classics. My 3 faves.

    BTS

    I would say that NKOTB, N'sync, and the Backstreet Boys are the only boy bands that really matter. No other boy bands have come close to their level of fame and success. All of the others that were sprinkled in between those three are ultimately forgettable. I don't know if I would consider this group a 'boy band' in the classic sense of the term, but they're kind of a modern spin on one and I've been obsessed. LANY is what they call themselves. Love the production and melodies. The lead singers voice is fantastic too. Reminds me a little of Troye Sivan.

    Rotted garbage. I can't stand any of this or them.
