yeah, dunno, i don't really like bernie bernie nolan's work, mostly, i admit, for some very slippery evasion of my celeb DL entries, but, also, she always seemed to really overact, over-egg her performance, better suited to musical theatre than pop imo, just seemed a bit naff.

but i suppose you're right in that, whilst not my cup of tea, the track is by no means embarrassing, other than possibly the presence of a very young/awkward looking coleen nolan at the edge of the screen. it sounded a bit more familiar to me than it should given my relative ignorance of the nolans' work, is part of the melody lifted from elsewhere, e.g. possibly t'four tops, 'sugar pie honey bunch' or similar?

I know nothing of the Nolans outside of this song. I know they're sisters and that's about it.

Stick to your guns, man!

Don’t let the musical snobs on here belittle your musical taste.
There isn’t a scientifically objective definition of good music - it boils down to what you like. Rhys has never been ashamed of his liking for Phil Collins, or TFP for Cliff.

Fair enough, we do have one or two genuine music aficiandos on here like Tommy, but don’t be bullied by the pretentious pseuds who seek out obscure shit merely to suggest their tastes are more refined than the popular tastes of the masses.

You are two stating two opposite viewpoints in the same post here, which do you mean?

It's quite possible to like both popular and obscure shit at the same time, you know.

I didn’t say it wasn’t (provided you genuinely do) - I just said (whatever music you like) “don’t be bullied by pretentious pseuds who seek out obscure shit merely to suggest their tastes are more refined than the popular tastes of the masses.”

Oh. That's a given. Everyone can fuck off! :lol:

What's weird, though, is that I am typically cast in the role of musical snob based on my usual tastes. Obscurantist power pop, funk, weird ass Morricone, deep track classic rock, etc. So it's fun to see how the other half lives.

The reason I found the song in the first place is that I was making a Spotify playlist of songs that hit No. 16 (my favorite number) on various charts in 1980 or whatever year that was out. Why? Because I'm a dork and I drive a lot.

I include the UK chart among the charts I pick from. Saw the song, never heard it, gave it a listen, and dug it. Same way I found "Rasputin" by Boney M, another "band" (studio creation) that never made it here.

(And, yes, I've also found good music by respected artists.)

Also, the most glorious day in UK music history was on May 21, 1972 when this happened. My all-time favorite song and club:

My point was, you are saying it's pretentious to like stuff that you deem "obscure shit", just after saying it's OK to like whatever you like. Perhaps they actually like the obscure stuff that they are claiming to like. Wouldn't it be a waste of time to do otherwise?

That's all, gotta do some work now...

I love doing this kind of thing. I remember doing one from all my music albums (digital or otherwise) and only using track number 8 from each album.

While I'm here, I'll also show off that I'm going to see Mix Master Mike on Sunday at Brudenell :D

Oh God, Vampire’s being an attention-seeking cunt once again. Quelle horreur.

Making the general accusation that people on here define their ‘obscure’ musical taste with the aim of being a ‘pseud’, without being willing to identify the specific occasion when that has happened.

I recon Brett is just enjoying a day on the river bank.

I'm tempted to let him hook me over my love of Collins.

Must dash instead.

Going to see Volbeat at the Brixton academy tomorrow and really looking forward to it
We had a meeting at work today and I was asked what steps I would take in the event of a fire. Apparently "fucking big ones" wasn't the right answer

Pattaya is the place for live bands. You can watch at least ten within a mile radius.

All cover bands of course but lots of quality musicians in amongst them.

Just a few more night's left here. Thought my mate Kenny would have joined us in between his dashing around

number 8, eh? not a traditional prime slot.

also a bit digital [cd/stream/download] era, i personally always think of track listings in terms of side 1/side 2 of a 'long player' or 'tape'.

anyway - god only knows, pet sounds?

Good point, [for once :D ] TFP: albums recorded back in them there days would often kick off each side with either the first or second single, and in the era of [say] eight or nine track albums, track five would often bag you the follow-up 45.

Only a personal thing, but the idea of choosing a load of 'track sixes' or 'track 16s' is too arbitrary for me. I prefer to select the music to suit a particular mood, or programme a playlist to suit it. But, hey ho, whatevs.
Mostly don't get that choice as I spend my days listening through new stuff either to review or set up the next interview.

I think I based it on listening to three albums in a row, and finding that my fave song on all three was track number 8!

get fucked :thumbl:

but, yes, this is of course right. as you say, the first track of the second side was a big deal, still is to me.

there's also the mildly thorny issue of different releases [e.g. for different international markets] sometimes having slightly different track listings.

all in all i suppose i'm saying that pbtl's idea is a shambolic, poorly thought out, nonsense :thumbd:.

I'm new here but even I know that quoting someone's post makes it public so that anyone can read it. Look, it's up there. Helpfully there's a big box around it too!
