MUSIC FROM 1985 till 2000

Postby SUBY1974 » 16 Aug 2015, 20:43

Just wanted to start a new thread. I came to love music at the end of the 20th century. I will post music I liked from1985 till 2000. I think it was a unique time for music. To kick off here is a clip from Live Aid with U2. In the early eighties we had "greed is good" blah, blah. But Live Aid for my generation youngsters started the sharing and caring eighties. It made a deep impression on me. Here we have Bono hugging a fan. I do remember Live Aid on TV. It was electric. I think it was the first time I liked rock stadium. I did see U2 at Wembley Stadium during their PopMart Tour in the 90s. Subrata.x

For me Live Aid was the greatest rock show on earth at the time and the only one I can remember. Thankyou Bob Geldof and everyone else. It was needed for the emergency in Ethiopia at the time. For me it showed people cared. X

Who can forget Queen's historic performance at Live Aid. Middle of the day, no lights, special effects, ect. Just pure musicianship and great songs. Oh, and Freddie Mercury!

Queen got me into rock. In 1984 Anjan showed me Radio Ga Ga on TV. Their performance at Live Aid is regarded as the greatest live rock performance of all time. I wish I could live that 20minutes forever. For Freddy Mercury it was his ultimate stage :- the whole world. I have recently bought Queen Montreal and Live Aid DVD. A work colleague Debbie had been there on the day. She said and few others since have told me Queen were sensational and Freddy vocals were perfect. Subrata. X I do remember their performance on TV. They stole the show.

Queen Always has a special Place in my heart. I started to listen to them in the 70s and I Think I have all their records. I remember I joined their fanclub but unfortunately I don´t have the fanzines left. I thought Roger Taylor was the most gorgeous person in the World. Even my mother like them and she´s 80 years old. Her favourite is Dreamers Ball.

At the moment I listen a lot to Red Hot Chili Peppers. I´m going to Los Angeles in September so I try to get in the mood...or something. :roll:

In 1988 or 1987 as a 13/14 year old a girl at school, mu classmate asked me if I loved Bros ( a new boy pop band in the UK). I remember she had a poodle perm and her teeth were in braces. I still wonder to this day,what motivated my teenage classmates to make their hair look as if a dose of a electricity had gone through their hair. Well that's fashion and it was the 80s. Big hair was the rage. Anyway I said no I never heard of them. Boys bands really saturated the music industry in eighties and nineties before The Spice Girls changed that. Anyway here are two famous songs by Bros. The two blonde boys are twins (Matt and Luke). The other one is Craig. I heard after they made a small fortune if £750,000 pounds, the brothers spent their money on fast cars and parties to impress their mates. They became penniless. Never trust a 17 year old with money! LOL. Today older and wiser the brothers have gone into acting I think. They admit they were young and silly. Weren't we all once upon a time. Bros song "When Will I Be Famous?" is the wrong message for the young back then and now. Fame is not everything. Rory was so wise. He steered clear of the celeb circuit. After all it was always about the music and that's why I adore Rory. Subrata.

Bros I feel were a precursor of the dance music that was to hit the 90s later on and that in itself was a music revolution back then.

One of my favorite bands of all time was Husker Du. They were a hardcore punk band from Minneapolis, who in time, became punkrocks' "Beatles" due to the great songwriting of Grant Hart (drums and vocals) and Bob Mould (guitar and vocals), who used great hooks and melodies into their hardcore songs. They broke up in 1988 after a great run of classic albums including the sublime double lp "Zen Arcade", released in 1984. Here's a 1987 live version of the classic "Pink Turns To Blue" from that album https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uvOvR6r ... =43&list=W. Heres Hart's "Flexible Flyer" from 1985's "Flip Your Wig" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-NTITiQOos. Its not everbodys cup of tea but its good to have a broad taste in music. Enjoy.

Continuing the theme of Live Aid and Band Aid, the following year they had Sport Aid. I can't remember Self Aid in Ireland. However Tears For Fears did a track called Everyone Wants To Rule The World. I think for
Sport Aid they turned the title of the song Everyone Wants To Run The World. As a 12 year old I was so moved that in Australia or some country, there was a marathon runner running in the middle of the night, in pouring rain, wearing these "glow in the dark" stuff and raising money for Africa. I was so humbled as to what good people can to for others in need.Today because of good people, I still have faith in the human race. Subrata.x
