Wham!, ABBA, The Police, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Queen, Michael Jackson, etc etc, there are too many to mention.These artists-I can not think of it anymore-have released classics that are still well known today (believe me, I am 15 years old and know many people from my age circle who listen to music from-2000, just like me).
Most of today’s artists I don’t like and overrated, the music world starts to collapse with all those rap and ever worse pop songs.No thanks, just give me music from the years 80, please.
In addition to open doors like the Beatles and the Rolling Stones that put the music world upside down:
- David Bowie, always an innovator and regiver of current trends in music.
- Pink Floyd, magistal compositions!
I really can’t leave one. Who, in my opinion, should not be missing (random order):
- Undoubtedly one of the greatest talents: Amy Winehouse.
What a fantastic voice. I refer mainly to Back to Black
I still find it a wrong choice that they just came out for Blue Lines, they made themselves known to the world by first launching the single Daydreaming. Brilliant song, not of it, but had first launched the single Unfinished Sympathy, the shock wave in the music world had been much bigger. But anyway: I was as a long-haired teenager who vowed forever to rock and grunge, immediately sold. I am and stay fan. Think also of the indestructable Karma Coma.
The Black Album may be that for my part though.
Still I find Creep annex not the best song. But it was a few years later that they released their best album with The Bands. Al was OK Computer almost as strong.
Unknown Pleasures I still find one of the best records of all time. Closer I keep on nurturing too.
Never before have I found a plate like Nevermind from the first listen so genius. Incesticide (the plate with the B-squares I listened at least as often. In Utero I find pieces less.
I can’t get a bad song for the mind right away. But I notice that songs like the Shine on you Crazy diamond, keep me from hitting
Two minutes later it was paid and I will finally see The Cure on June 28th. I have been waiting for more than fifteen years, if I am still in recording, I am allowed to “Meg” away with permission for an exception.
I have discovered them on my fourteenth and have never stopped listening. I can’t get to another band that also dared to use so many different styles: jazz, rock, Blues are the most important ingredients. In the title number of the record the Soft Parade they even did that in a song. Also blissful and pieces better than the original on Plate: The live version of the song Not to Teach The Earth. On the plate, the tempo is too low for that number. I have no doubt that the live version is a correction of the original. The cover Glofia was also brought live sparkle. I own as far as I know everything The Doors have ever included in a studio. Also the Jam sessions whose band members did not know they were recorded.
I apologize for the long answer.
The Beatles, with head and shoulders remotely the best, musibalest, most creative etc especially thanks to Lennon/McCartney.
Queens of the Stone Age
There have been many important.Queen.
