    Grace Jones thread

    Bloodlights and Bami is out now on DVD. But yes, I'm hoping the delay in the album means we'll get something amazing. I've only heard shenanigans and that was uninspired.
  2. Me too. I just mine blogs and YouTube. There's so much great music out there!

    Yes! I noticed that although the second line is different. 'aunque sabes coquetear, te interesa solo bailar!'

    Prince

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/music/news/23-prince-albums-available-stream-online-first-time/ 23 albums from 1995 to 2010 now available to stream online!
  5. Ticketmaster rip off sites are closing on October. About time too. Hopefully the others will go out of business. Viagogo were known to have staff buying tickets and putting them straight onto resale. Have to say, people like Ed Sheeran were refusing people who had tickets from these sites so probably forced the issue. Ticketmaster to close resale sites Seatwave and Get Me In - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-45133094

    In Britain, we all thought it was Tesco, the supermarket chain. And I still think they sing 'fucking in the moonlight' on summer night city just before it fades out. Ps. What about Livingstone!

    πŸ˜‚ Alice also makes an appearance in 'two for the price of one' with her mother! And don't forget poor old Elaine stuck as a b side to the winner takes it all! Their choice of names always made me laugh as they were so plain! They probably sounded exotic to their Swedish ears!

    They play The Visitors at a club? Wow! Never thought they'd play a song like that.

    @Jazzy Jan they've included Dum Dum Diddle! 😁
  13. Wow. Interesting. Yes, it loses millions every year but valued at hundreds of million??? Just doesn't make sense!

    ABBA thread

    I love 'I'm a marionette' too. So dramatic and such a good description of fame before people were going on about the perils all the time! And yes, the name of the game is so advanced given the time it came out. They Were the complete opposite of prince with their less is more approach. I really hope the new songs are amazing😧

    ABBA thread

    Before the film came out, there was a theory that TDBYC was a sign Meryl had died in the movie. I'd never heard it was about death before though. But yes, Dominic cooper was awful but I think he's not a good actor in general. Don't get why he was cast in the first place. And I prefer Lily James to AS. Are has much more presence to me and she's 😍

    ABBA thread

    Yes! I was going to say about the end credits. I made sure I stayed. The songs did seem quite short like knowing me, knowing you. I thought Angel eyes was great. But what happened to the day before you came? It's on the soundtrack but was never used! And yes, I was disappointed with kisses of fire being used like that. It's such a perfect pop song. Btw they filmed the intro down the road from me! It's a ruins of an old convent.

    ABBA thread

    I've just got back from the cinema. It was enjoyable but it could have done with being a bit longer so it didn't skip over some plot points. Some of the songs are crowbarred in such as name of the game. But yes, lily James is great and beautiful. Meryl's version of my love, my life is beautiful. I even thought Pierce Brosnan's version of SOS was good. Andy Garcia role though πŸ˜‚ But the biggest thing was the incidental music. I loved the French accordian version of I let the music speak!

    https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2018/aug/01/jean-paul-goude-best-photograph-grace-jones-nightclubbing A bit about the photo for the nightclubbing cover. But where is the album!???
  19. I'm listening to do much more radio now. Radio 2 plays such a broad array of music that I get to hear so many random styles of songs. I'm not bothered if it's 'new' or old so long as it's new to me. YouTube recommendations are great too. I spend so much time curating my own playlists doing edits of long songs etc.

    Prince

    I know! There's a few videos for the remixes of Gett Off which I've never seen before. There's the beautiful experience video which is around an hour long which features come and the early version of days of wild.

    Drake and Lil Wayne don't have a single memorable song between them and we're supposed to believe this crap!

    I think I had to rip a video from YouTube for automatic

    ABBA thread

    I do think at some point they will have to look at streaming again as the current crop of artists are breaking records but don't appear to have any memorable tunes! Numbers are so inflated.
  25. I rip songs from YouTube and use blogs for MP3s. I curate my own playlists and use Google play to listen to them on multiple devices. I buy the latest limited edition Madonna vinyls but that's it now. I've done loads of edits of dance songs so I load those up. I've tried streaming but the selection is so piss poor, most of the songs I want to listen to aren't on there.
