On occasions a thread could be backed up with a music link.

EG: I the thread was about the leaving of Liverpool,

not much different then to any other youtube etc link.

A section just for music?
Not a bad concept as we could then recall some of the wonderful music we knew in our day, some still going strong and far better than some of the stuff today.

Hmm. Another music thread. You are Really Spoiling Us,Ambassador !

I've always liked this one CLICK (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9uvmca5WF4).For my 'Friends'. Hope it doesn't go over your heads !

Well,it was a toss-up really between that and Sandie Shaw's 1967 Eurovision classic ,wasn't it ?

Gulliver you have missed the the King E.P. himself 1965.

Just found this thread which to me and seems like a very good idea but is not being used much.
So, as there are so many of us who survived the 60’s and 70’s almost intact but thought they were the best of times i submit my list of memorable music.
These are songs that still sound as good today as when released.
In no particular order -

Waterloo Sunset by the Kinks. The intro still excites me.
Won’t get fooled again - The Who
Something - George’s beautiful contribution to Abbey Road and maybe his most memorable song.
Oh Well - Fleetwood Mac. When they made real music.
Strawberry Fields Forever - John’s classic track about his childhood. Penny lane is nearly as good.
Dock of the Bay - Otis Redding. A real classic.
Son of a preacher man - Dusty Springfield
You can’t always get what you want - The rolling Stones
Lay,Lady lay - Bob Dylan
When i was young - Eric Burdon / Animals
There are many,many others but thought i’d stop at 10.

So, comments, opinions etc.

We could also try listing our Top Ten or 25 albums of all time and see how much is agreed or disputed [in friendly manner].
Just an idea to keep this thread going.

No surprise at all John. I love any sort of music including classical with the exception of Rap,Hip-hop and thrash metal.
Mostly though 'It's all music to my ears."

So many to chose from.

A very old fave:

Duncan Browne - Journey

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AS1bvFmwtsA

DUNCAN BROWNE
Journey Lyrics

Cut all the corners, step on the old routine
Oh what a joke these twenty-four years have been
Honey, in my mind I can see your star
I know who you are I've been learning
All right, so now we know which way the wind's gonna blow
Let's get up and go, no returning

(Solo)

Pack up your sorrow, put away your evening star
But don't change your clothes, I like you just the way you are
I know you've been sleeping under a big black cloud
And you never been allowed to be honest
Well I'm no saint but I'll carry you home
There's a place of your own if you want it

Uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh-uh

Soon we'll be sailors, sailing on the salty sea
Where the waves of the world would be the one and only company
Come up and see the world it's like a ship going down
It's running a-ground, it's all over
But those flying fishes are gonna jump up and smile
Every league, every mile, to terra nova

I like most styles, from the Beatles to Bach.
Interesting if you look into two songs.

Whiter Shade of Pale,
The title came when one of the writers saw a lady at a party not looking well and said, 'You look a whiter shade of pale'

The song is about sexual encounters.

Hotel California by the Eagles, about the excesses of the 70's in California.

But please no offers from members to sing on site!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Beatles
The Shadows
All the 60s British bands.

Not a Country Western fan, except for Marty Robins, might be of interest to some that the Spanish guitar background on "El Paso"
was played by a country bluegrass guitar picker named Grady Martin, and considered the best guitar work in country music history.

"For the Good Times" is a song written by Kris Kristofferson that appeared on his debut album Kristofferson. He wrote the first verse and chorus in 1968 while driving from Nashville to the Gulf of Mexico; an early recording of the song was by Bill Nash on Smash Records. In 1970 Ray Price recorded a version of the song ..

Greatest version i've ever heard of House of the rising sun is by Frijid Pink. You can hear it on-line. Very different to the Animals version.
How about greatest cover versions of the originals?
Everybody's probably heard Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah by Jeff Buckley, but check out K.D.Lang's cover- beautiful.

Country and Western music............................. He is down to the last string on his guitar, The crops have failed, A wheel has fell off the wagon, She has buggered off with the horse and left him with 5 kids, There,s a hole in the roof, No found for his cattle, His whittling knife has broke its blade, The dog is dead, And he has run out of Moonshine :cripes: I am crying buckets just typing this no thanks. Bloody awful.

Country and Western, still very popular here in Oz as well as many other countries.

Every year the Tamworth festival shows the world our version of it.
Many of the songs are based on actual facts, life in the country, especially here in the bush, is so far removed from what you would consider to be normal, that is not hard to understand the sentiment of the songs.l
