    2019 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Nominees

    * The Cure- 16th year of eligibility; Second nomination * Def Leppard- 15th year of eligibility; First nomination * Devo- 17th year of eligibility; First nomination * Kraftwerk- 24th year of eligibility; Fifth nomination * Radiohead- Second year of eligibility; Second nomination * Rage Against the Machine- Second year of eligibility; Second nomination * Roxy Music- 22nd year of eligibility; First nomination these would by my choices, in my opinion of course.... I may have missed some artists because I am not acquainted with their work.... Definitely not sure about Janet, because she wasn't able to sustain a career, so not sure if that makes her the right choice.... and I am definitely on the fence about Stevie Nicks as a solo artist.... she is definitely an icon, but more so as part of Fleetwood Mac than a solo artist.

    as a kid I was a MASSIVE Eurythmics fan, a total pre-teen loon Beethoven has always been my favorite Eurythmics video, and one of my favorite videos overall, such an undiscovered gem... and the song is unbelievable, totally subversive and unlike anything else.

    ABBA thread

    I have a friend from high school who was an ABBA fanatic and he was showing me this when we were teenagers, and he was dramatically fuming that this should be considered the first music video in history because he wrongly believed that it was released before Bohemian Rhapsody

    Boys and coach found in cave after 10 days

    Surely the movie will be whitewashed, with the number of kids reduced to 5-6 and one black kid and one girl added to fit today's norms

    Boys and coach found in cave after 10 days

    apparently they went in to write their names in the cave as some sort of a maturity initiation ritual ( )and as the cave started getting flooded they went deeper and deeper to find shelter

    Boys and coach found in cave after 10 days

    just read an article explaining that they might stay in the cave for up to 4 months, due to parts of the cave being flooded, so now teams are finding a way to bring them supplies for the next few months. Apparently the only way out is a 6 hour dive through mud, and it's difficult even for skilled professionals, so now teams are deciding what to do. Parts of the cave that can be drilled from the surface are not connected to the chamber where the kids are, and diving is impossible for them at the moment because the kids are not trained for that, so for the time being it seems like they will be stuck there. Unbelievable story, surely a movie will be made some day.

    Music CONSUMPTION topic 2018 version!

    I download music and burn in to a blank CD for my car, and at home I listen to downloaded music and youtube
  16. LOVE it, it's the ultimate live version of Music! also love the Kraftwerk sample in the intro, it worked great with Music
  17. there is ALWAYS an ethnic segment, usually something latin... and one "budoir" segment where M seduces the female dancers, it's a given... and one gym/disco segment, usually in the end.... The last 6 tours follow a very similar pattern

    Is Girlie Show her best ever?

    one of my favorite tours ever, and I was so impressed with the whole live band and M's amazing strong vocals, so musically it is her strongest tour for me

    Is MDNA tour her best ever?

    No... I don't think a tour can be her best without the actual musical aspect of it being great... Sure, the stage is amazing, but there are barely any live instruments, too many backing tracks, etc... Wish it was more like The Girlie Show, with actual live musicians, it would give the music so much more depth.

    Madonna's LIVE VOCALS on all tours

    she is playing live, but basically just repeating a few simple chords, and Monte is playing the real riffs in the background

    Madonna's LIVE VOCALS on all tours

    Could be, and I think that Donna was big help, because their voices blended perfectly.

    Madonna's LIVE VOCALS on all tours

    Is there a realistic unbiased (scientific?) explanation on why M's live vocals have deteriorated so much in the last 10 years or so? I mean, compare The Girlie Show to Sticky and Sweet, it's like two different people.
  23. Well, to be honest, he is credited for about 20% of the song.... and it wasn't THAT huge either, it came and went... he did just FINE, it's not like he wrote something as huge as , I dunno, Despacito all by himself.

    Looking for arena pics of WTG and Girlie Show

    slightly offtopic, as it's The Girlie Show, but nevertheless interesting
