    Popcorn Music and Musician Discussion Thread

    I just figured that this could be a supplement to the popular "music to the marrow" thread where people could discuss music and artists. If the powers that be think it is a bad ideal or if there is another thread like it please just take it down. I guess technically I started it, but officially I want someone else to kick it off and see where it goes, so you all jump in there if this thread is useful.

    Well, if no one else is going to post I'll post again. Yeah raggie33, that band you posted seems like they have talent. I never heard of them before until now, but it looks like they have been around for 30 years. You have to be good to last that long. On some of my favorite bands they made good music and looked like they were having a good time, but there was a lot of friction behind the scenes. A lot of good artists have also passed on like Cory Wells (RIP) of the three dog night.

    I wish the eagles would let Don Felder come back. Some of the best guitar work I've ever heard was when him and Joe Walsh did some guitar weaving while at a concert in Seattle Washington back in 1976. The song was "turn to stone".

    I'm hoping more of yall would join in. Surely I'm not the only one that wants to discuss (or talk about) music and artists.

    Today I had Elvis Costello "Get Happy" in the player. When in my skateboarding hey day Elvis was huge. He put out a bunch of records back to back but for years I could not find which one had the song Opportunity from back around '79 or 80. At one point I even questioned if it were even him that did it. Not one person I knew in the 90's forward knew what I was talking about.

    Then one day in a music store the 'album' Get Happy was in the used CD section for like $3. Hoah, Nelly the second song is titled Opportunity. Could it be 'that song'? My truck had a tape player so it was an hour before I arrived home and……yesssssssss!! Finally!! I'm not crazy, it really did exist. It also contains several other hits and just flat out Elvis Costello nuggets. King Horse, B Movie, 5 Gears in Reverse, Hi Fidelity, Can't Stand Up for Falling Down, Man Called Uncle and others.

    I knew about Elvis Costello since 79 when my cousin used to subscribe to those high fidelity magazines that featured him a lot. Never heard a song by him though till one night on coast to coast they had one of his songs on the bumper music. I like his style and wonder why he never got any airplay on top 40 stations. Seems like on our AOR station WRKK I would hear his name when the dj would announce who all he just played, but I didn't know which song it was. That was from 79 to the early 80s.

    You had to be listening to the right stations. Top 40 sucked then and sucks now.

    I found out the hard way (after I found out the singers weren't really inside the radio) that a lot of folks had their voices doctored up digitally. It's good to hear of folks that have a natural ability.

    I thought it was a music video. That's ok though

    There lots of amazing female vocalists out there, like:

    Ellie Rowsell




    Angel Olsen



    and Frazy Ford



    and can't forget Polly Jean Harvey



    GPM, this one is long but not a movie just a concert set.

    The old movies were so much better than most of what we have now.

    I guess I shoulda, just posted the trailer, which is funny too.



    it's always good to see the Ramones! Brings back memories.

    It seems those old movies had a lot of creativity. I watched those videos. Seems like I have heard of that one by the black crows before, but didn't know it was them. I'm not into just female musicians only, but they are like a breath of fresh air and they season the airwaves. I'm learning there are a lot of good modern musicians out there. I'm kinda stuck in the late 60s to the late 80s on what I know. In that span of 20 something years the music was just phenomenal. Maybe though it also had something to do with the timeline it was set in. Especially in the early and late 70s songs just kept coming out that made a person say "whoa!". The disco era in between was kinda drab IMHO.

    I can't even read music. I know I can hear a certain song and it takes me back whether good or bad- mostly good. I look forward to Christmas for the music. I like the music better than any gift or holiday food. Some well known musicians can sing those old hymns so beautifully.

    I first heard this song when I started working for Auto Armature back in 89 and it got my attention a little. It kind of reminds me of that place.https://youtu.be/tDl3bdE3YQA , This woman and her song are a trip. I'm not concerned with what she says about religion because " religion" is such a generic term nowadays and even includes satanism.

    Raggie33, Thanks for that.
    I always enjoy the unexpected collaborations. Robert Plant and Alison Krauss come to mind.
    One of my favorites is for Christmas; Bowie and Crosby little drummer boy.
