That’s nice to hear Vile8r a crush?? I don’t think Tiffany done much after this track.

Wilson Philips Hold On. This song got popular again after featured in the successful comedy “Bridesmaids”

This is my idea of a sophisticated make out song. Brian Ferry was hot!!!

This is Slave To Love


Also a good alternative cover by the talented Roisin Murphy not losing its culture at all.

A huge hit in the US by all accounts. Love this one.....

Paul Young always had great songs, and it was a shame he disappeared into pop music oblivion.  One of my personal faves from him was 'I'm Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down.'

Must check out that one. He still does these 80s stars tours here with Howard Jones, T’Pau and Midge Ure the odd time

Title: Re: Jessica’s Jukebox

Many will know it from the film The Breakfast Club
It’s Don’t Forget About Me , by Simple Minds

Title: Re: Jessica’s Jukebox
Post by: vile8r on April 21, 2019, 09:53:28 AM
It's kind of funny. In 1986 I went and saw Simple Minds in concert. At the time I was a real metal head, more into Judas Priest, and Ozzy and Iron Maiden and all those kinds of bands. But I had versatile tastes and I really loved their song, 'Alive and Kicking'. I bought that album, 'Once Upon A Time,' which i still consider one of the best albums of the '80s and I played it a lot. It was damn good! And the concert was awesome! Jim Kerr is a great singer and a real showman in concert. I had friends who ridiculed me for going to that concert but I have NEVER regretted it!
Title: Re: Jessica’s Jukebox
Post by: Jessica_33 on April 23, 2019, 03:40:51 AM
Probably the biggest girl group out of the UK in the 80’s. Had a few US hits too.

Generally speaking I’m not a fan of covers, but I really think Disturbed’s cover of Simon & Garfunkel’s “The Sound of Silence” was just so phenomenal...

New wave must have been a breakthrough then!

Ok another Simple Minds one. This is a less plaid but powerful anti war track

It’s Ghostdancing (Scottish accents are sexy!!)

Title: Re: Jessica’s Jukebox
Post by: carhamgrater on April 29, 2019, 06:50:25 AM
"I'm In Love With A German Film Star"- musically great, lyrically left a bit to be desired to me. Maybe after a few more plays it'll grow on my

Ghostdancing- not available to Canadian Viewers, which rarely stops this one found the cd cut to listen too have to say a great song that neveer made it to Canadian listeners!

The Sixties and the Eighties had to be the best times for Brit acts in North America!

Soundgarden is epic, period! One of my FAVORITE bands of the '90s and gives me even more reason to want to marry you!  ;D Just kidding! And Black Hole Sun isn't even the best track off that album ( in my view anyway ) but yeah Chris Cornell (rest his beautiful soul ) and the boys were in top form on this song. Many people thought Soundgarden was 'selling out' on this song, but I don't believe so. I look at it as the musical maturing of  one of the finest bands of the 1990s.

According to Wikipedia the song sampled the Stones's  "The Last Time" and that to settle the claim Mick and Keith  were added to the song credits!. Super distinct song the did well over here on the charts. Personally always thought it was a whiney song!

A great song and brings back good memories of the '90s. One of my personal faves from Oasis was 'What's the Story, Morning Glory?'
Too bad those two wanks, Liam and Noel couldn't get along. They made good music but couldn't stand each other. Maybe their mother needed to step in and give each one a kick in the ass! "Now get out there you two and play together nice, or I'm taking your instruments away!"  :emot_rotf.gif:

Very true Vile8r Liam I think was worse, and Noel seems to be doing well with his High Flying Birds.
I do doubt they will ever play again as Oasis , but I guess they did always want to be the Manchester Beatles.
Glad you like them definitely a band from my childhood.

Oasis was always so full of themselves in my opinion
Manic Street Preachers- Caught them live Ontario Place back in 1994 thought they sounded better live than on cd!

Bot decent songs but i never understood the term BritPop-should have been BritRock to me

I agree it was far more of a rock sound.

Right this one, for some reason I listened to a lot on my way to college, and I associate it with my first car, before I got into a crash,  it’s Depeche Mode and Personal Jesus


My adoptive parents met, by accident, at the RoseBowl, where Depeche Mode were recording (and performing, obviously) “101”, back in 1989. Both were English kids, having finished uni and travelling while taking time out - they had never ever met before. They say they noticed the other during “Stripped”, shortly after it started and got closer and closer, in the crowd, ending up singing together through song after song, until they were both hoarse, whereupon my mini skirt-wearing mother (cringe at the thought) climbed on my dad’s shoulders to get a better view of Dave Gahan , who my dad was trying his best to look like. When she commented on his appearance and confided that Gahan “makes me moist” (seriously, they told this story at my 18th birthday party, to all my friends! Jesus!) my dad knew he was “in there”!  :o :emot_weird.gif:

Two years later they were married, and six years after that, in ‘97, they bravely (foolishly) adopted a surly, young but large orphan kid from the Dark Continent.

I was never much of a fan, to be honest, growing up. But, upon being told by the story, by them, and realising that I would not be with them, or where I am today without their love of (and, in mother’s case, lust for) the band, I sat and listened to the recording from that concert. It’s fucking superb, I have to say - even if I am biased, thanks to their role in my life - and I still listen to it, in the car, sometimes or if on long journeys!

Their more “recent” stuff has been equally good, if not better. I have “Wrong” as a ringtone on my phone, still, for a certain person (and the video is amazing). ;)

Today thinking a bit of my late father and he’d bring us for dinner in a country pub when I was little and this song reminds me of such sweet memories, the smell of beef and onions, tobacco, and the sound of people talking loudly and glasses clinking while my sister and I played with our dolls. Probably so wrong now, but they were the times

I love the Beatles and it's not that I would say I hate this song, but if I was given a list of songs by the Beatles to rate and this was on it, it would be towards the bottom of the list. Has just never been a hugely appealing song to me. Was like McCartney & Lennon were writing a song and all of a sudden couldn't think of any more words so Paul just said,"Hey, let's just repeat the title 500 freaking times and stick in a bunch of la la las!" And John just said, "Sounds good to me, mate! I'm tired and it's time for tea!"  But that is just my Canadian two-bits!  :emot_rotf.gif:

One band that I loved growing up and still do are Nirvana, the whole songs over the years have spoken to me and Kurt was really just a genius.

My first time seeing Nirvana was when I was 5 and my sister was 9 and Dad would put on Top Of The Pops
It was his famous Smells Like Teen Spirit, but unknown to us Kurt was messing up the song over being told to mime it
My dad laughed and said who the hell is this
I actually liked this then


This one is one of my favorites and in my school years I’d just purchased the CD of the best of Nirvana which was simply just a black album called Nirvana. I was 16
It was actually the first time I heard this one and I played it on my disc-man non stop on the bus to school.

During the recording of their album 'In Utero', some suit from the record company told them he didn't like the songs and insisted they start over. Of course, being a knee-jerk record company exec, he just wanted another 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' and Kurt had flat out told them that wasn't going to happen, he wasn't going to just do a a carbon copy of 'Nevermind'. Kurt told the record company if they didn't like 'In Utero', he'd burn the master tapes and screw 'em! The record company backed down and left them alone after that.

The M People. Heather Small had a deep husky and truly outstanding voice.

This is a song that lifts me all the time and during my dad’s defeat from cancer it really spurred me on in life as it was one of the last modern songs he loved

The words are poignant and raising.

Next one is a track I’ve heard at every family event. Every “knees up” as we say here.
The ever catchy and toe tapping Communards and Sarah Jane Morris “Don’t Leave Me This Way”

Though I find Led Zeppelin slightly overrated (don’t kill me)
This is one I loved listening to in my college years.
Very progressive and just an orgasm for the ears

It’s Kashmir

According to Zeppelin themselves, Kashmir is the pinnacle of their music. I would agree. It's damn amazing.

Post by: carhamgrater on November 02, 2019, 08:43:23 AM
Zeppelin is one of those bands that you either love or despise. For me it's Kashmir and Stairway To Heaven and that's it. I perfer the cover by Bond without the whiny vocals by Plant!
Title: Re: Jessica’s Jukebox
Post by: vile8r on November 02, 2019, 09:09:12 PM
LOL how ironic. I am a huge Led Zeppelin fan, but I won’t dispute that some of their music is hugely overrated. It’s not all as good as so many people make it out to be. That being said, ONE of their songs I DON’T like is Kashmir! The song has just never appealed to me and I find that Plant’s voice just seems to drone through it. I’ve never considered it to be one of their better songs yet so many people love it. Oh well, it’s a matter of tastes. Another song of theirs they should have never recorded is D’yer Maker. Hard to believe the same guys who wrote Stairway to Heaven also wrote that one!

In the Uk it’s Remembrance Sunday.

This is song that is more Irish/Scottish but they fought in the same bloody war and we are all comrades really
My dad discovered this band of a friend back in the 80’s and my mum still has this very record at home.
There are many versions but this one has captures the right emotions and fills my eyes every time I hear it.
 RIP all our are fallen hero’s.
It’s The Men They Couldn’t Hang and the Green Fields Of France The content speaks for itself.

What a great version of the song. I've never heard it or of the band before but i'll remedy that today. Already sent the link to the Canadian Veteran council suggesting they add the song to the Remembrance Day Celebrations. That song truly represents the total allied efforts in the Big One!

That you for presenting this song, worth a merit!

Post by: vile8r on November 25, 2019, 02:31:09 PM
That is a very cool song. I've never heard it before, but it certainly brings a tear to the eye, thinking about the sacrifice of our soldiers in the Great War.  Thank you for sharing, Jess.
Title: Re: Jessica’s Jukebox
Post by: Jessica_33 on December 05, 2019, 11:54:51 AM
It is very tearful and I’ll admit I can play it without a little weep.
It’s the part where it says “a whole generation who were butchered and damned”

Ok keeping Scots at the forefront this is one of my hidden gems.
It’s a song by a band called Deacon Blue, who didn’t travel very far
But this song is very powerful, and I always play it if I’m feeling bad about myself. Not it mention the sea theme.
Saw them live in 2011 In Greenock for the Tall Ships Festival and they played this, very fitting for then and to everyone who feels a bit down this is for you

It’s Deacon Blue Dignity

I think it’s his best Vile8r! People say Purple Haze, or All Along The Watchtower, but this is the one for me!

So keeping Christmas going, going to put up a tune that I love and wouldn’t be Christmas without even though it’s sad as it’s an anti war song. It’s dreary and not everyone’s cup of tea but makes me reflect on those who don’t have it east this time of the year for whatever reason. I’ve spent one Christmas away from home and it was hard so I can imagine how hard it can be for many.

It’s John Lennon and Yoko Ono

Really fallen in love with the Script an Irish band but probably bigger here In the UK than in Ireland.

Just summing up my life right now......enjoy!

You most certainly have some good taste in music.
Title: Re: Jessica’s Jukebox
Post by: Jessica_33 on January 04, 2020, 04:22:41 PM
My taste is mixed lol.
Music is more than just music to me it’s where my emotions lie and I map my life out with songs that have touched me.

Right now this next one is very important to me. Back In 2009 I was in dark place. A year had passed since my rape and I was just miserable and desperate. I had no value and why I kept a brave face to my family and friends. I was very low.
I was sleeping around, taking drugs and losing all interest in being me.
Then my friends and I went to this festival, The V Festival, up the country I was really only there for the drink, drugs and maybe a another bloke to tangle up with. All these things were achieved. However there was this song and I’ll play it now
It touched me like nothing else, and when I sang with the crowd I felt tears come down as it was just so emotional but it also gave me a message. To get better later on that festival in a tent I revealed what had happened to me the year before to a close friend and she was the first person I told It was hard but it was a start on the right track.  This is my survivor anthem from all badness and I play it once everyday. Usually in the mornings. To most people it’s another British band with another catchy rhythm. To me it’s a savior. I changed a lot after this performance and today on YouTube I played it again and again.
Now it’s time to share with you guys

It’s Elbow One Day Like This and you don’t have to like it but just know it’s my special song  and always will be.


For the Canadians If this works not the concert I was at but you should get the magic
This was at Glastonbury 2011


This is the studio version


Enjoy xx

That is a great slice of life story, Jessica.   How you hung on and climbed out of it is admirable . Good song too. I think music speaks to us in many ways, and we always remember those songs that took us through a dark place as you so well explained.

I bloody love Soundgarden too! LOL. I have been a fan of them since probably about 1989. When their album Louder Than Love came out. I just thought that was the coolest name for a band and when I heard Chris Cornell sing I knew, this guy is destined for greatness!
Title: Re: Jessica’s Jukebox
Post by: Jessica_33 on March 07, 2020, 05:29:11 AM
Chris Cornell was hot stuff and an exceptional singer. Taken way too soon.

Ok next one is close to the heart. Another talented singer taken from us.
It’s Dolores O Riordian from Ireland and her band the Cranberries
This is just so emotive and makes me all nostalgic. Didn’t really remember it coming out but definitely one I’ve played over the years. A background track to my life.

It’s The Cranberries and Linger.

Title: Re: Jessica’s Jukebox
Post by: carhamgrater on March 07, 2020, 06:40:22 AM
Much like all songs that make it big it was overplayed to death that only now one can truly see the beauty and hidden message in the song! Great choice Jessica!
Title: Re: Jessica’s Jukebox
Post by: vile8r on March 07, 2020, 02:10:03 PM
Back in the '90s, I really wasn't a Cranberries fan, and a lot was attributed to like what Graham said, because they were so overplayed on the radio. But now 20 years later I have a lot more appreciation for them.
Title: Re: Jessica’s Jukebox
Post by: Jessica_33 on April 22, 2020, 06:46:14 AM
Liked some but not all Of their work.
Another Irish band that really only had one hit over here I’m told Is the Adventures

It’s so beautiful, powerful, poetic and poignant
I feel this is a very underrated band.
It’s The Adventures and Broken Land 1988

One of my all favs from a man who came from up the road in a place called Dartford not too far from where I was born
How can not anyone see that David Bowie was the most beautiful person in the world or it might just be me.
I didn’t understand this song when I used to listen to it as a teenager but now I do and having gone down a slippery slope with drugs in the past and self pity this song really speaks to me as it was a song reflecting his own demons and drug abuse

It’s David Bowie Ashes To Ashes

Title: Re: Jessica’s Jukebox
Post by: carhamgrater on April 28, 2020, 11:37:34 AM
Another artists who depending when your first experienced him was a love him or forget him. Most never knew what an all around performer David was!
Title: Re: Jessica’s Jukebox
Post by: vile8r on April 28, 2020, 10:59:30 PM
Back in 1980, when this first came out, I didn't even really know who the hell David Bowie was. I thought "Oh it's another one of these new wave guys coming out."  I saw the video for Ashes to Ashes and concluded he was a bit of a weirdo. Then I heard Space Oddity on the radio and when I found out it was an older song and realized David Bowie had been around for a long time, I had a whole new perspective. My friend's older brother let us listen to his album of Ziggy Stardust and it blew us away.  After that I loved David Bowie and had a new appreciation for his music. Over the years I have come to learn what a talented artist he really was. This was a perfect choice of a song from him, Jess, as it brings back memories of when I was a teenager too and just learning who David Bowie was.

It’s a great one Vile8r and I just wish the ending was longer but I found this


I forget those in North America probably didn’t get the same exposure as he had here one of the greats and was so sad he passed away in that legends cull of 2016

This is an 80s Classic here for anyone in that mood. Love the video, not into anything else they done
But this a good one

It’s Level42 and Something About You

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

To my American cousins across the pond, you need some love and it’s been a turbulent year for you with everything else on top of the pandemic
So I hope you enjoy your turkey dinner this year.
Being a lover of all things American as a child/teenager will put out some favorites from the States I’ve loved over the years

Singing into my hairbrush for you guys Xxxxx

Pink Don’t Let Me Get Me
An anthem of my teenage years

Debbie Harry I Want That Man
A Jukebox classic to dance around hand bags on the floor. Which I’ve done many a ladies night out!
Loved Debbie Harry she is an underrated icon.


Jane Wiedlin Rush Hour
Makes me think of America and bubblegum cheesy 80’s pop at its best


Madonna Dear Jessie
Of course this needs no introduction to why I loved this song as a young girl  from the Queen Of Pop and still do


And of Course no American Toast would complete without the King
Elvis Presley Can’t Help Falling In Love


Enjoy xx

Well, Jessica, I'm Canadian as you know, so not celebrating Thanksgiving. But LOVE your musical selections!

Don't Let Me Get Me is like one of my top five fave Pink songs! I just love the video!

Debbie Harry, well always had a big hard-on for her! LOL! Beautiful woman, AND a great voice!

Jane Weidlin, wow! Haven't heard her in years and I always liked Rush Hour. She was such a cutie.

Madonna, always a fan of hers too, although Dear Jessie I will admit is a song I'm not too familiar with. But I liked it.

And then Elvis! Yes! And you just happened to pick one of my favoritest Elvis songs. It's beautiful.

I remember this song! At first I was racking my brain, because I knew the title sounded familiar but I was having a hard time to recall the actual song. Yes this was an excellent track from Mike Oldfield. Another song by him that I always really liked was Family Man from his 1982 album, Five Miles Out.

Pink- a staple of north American radio and a main stay of my CD collection!
Debbie Harry- cared more for "Blondie" than her own career, the best female singer of the entire late seventies to today that barely ever received
                     recognition!
Jane  Weidlin- never got the respect that she deserved as a solo artists or a member of the Go-Go's
Madonna- can't say I heard of the tune- not one of her North American famous tunes. Could also be that Madonna is overated!
Elvis- a classic that should never be sang by others in my honest opinion

overall a perfect collection but it does nothing to get that image out of my head of you singing into your hairbrush. That has triggered something perverted (in me no way!)that just just dying to come out!

Great selections for anytime of year  that will earn you a merit when I'm able to award one.

Thank you for my hairbrush story! I can no longer sing into a hairbrush anymore without thinking of your story lol!
Glad you all liked the music even though it was Canadians who commented and not the Americans
I love you guys so it’s all cool. Debbie Harry is certainly a heroine of mine.
Madonna I’m not really a huge fan of Madonna but obviously I liked that song as young girl it was like a Disney movie

Right this one is from a band I only started to appreciate in my late teenage years
It’s Pearl Jam and Alive. Just really hits me in a nostalgic mood.

I would say I'm sorry but tis the season not to tell lies and I for one might just be a good boy for a while- catch me after the new years to see it that remains!

Sorry never have seen what the big deal was with Pearl Jam/ Sure they can play and sing but they never did anything for me so far! Still earns you a merit

It's late for thanksgiving, but you music choice was so good. Pink I only got into recently, while Debbie Harry as Vile said was always a teenager's fantasy and a great muso. Early Madonna was revolutionary as an 18 year old boy - bra visible on the outside of clothes??? and then Elvis... Hmmmm

Don’t know why but drinking a glass of wine, an open fire and having the chats with my mum makes me want to play the Supremes
Loved her look and just the look of the time


The Supremes Where Did Your Love Go

Also an honorable mention and my Mums favorite version
Soft Cell and the very electric and glamour Where Did Our Love Go (1981)

Ah back when music talent had to sing to earn a hit! A fun time growing up until we get this synth pop trash that the singer should be publicly flogged with the power cord for destroying a classic of Motown!

I am going to disagree with CHG, as I LOVE Pearl Jam! Well, early Pearl Jam anyway. After about their fourth album, I began to lose interest in them, but they are still on my bucket list to see in concert someday. AND Eddie Vedder and I share a birthday!  ;D

But I WILL agree with him on Soft Cell, LOL, they do sort of murder the Supremes. But the original Supremes, oh yes! Can't go wrong with those girls. And the HAIR!  emot_omfg.gif

Pearl Jam Rock!!

Right been off the grid lately but will return with some music.
Love this one by the Pointer Sisters.
They used to play it a pub near my college back in the day
Or rather someone used to put it in the Jukebox but got us dancing after certain amounts to drink.

It’s the Pointer Sisters and Automatic

Isn't it amazing that the beginning dance was really just a workout that moved to the music. Not going to lie I though that the lead singer on this was a guy, man someone really needs estrogen shot badly! Always loved that song! Merit awarded for posting this!

I didn’t really discover Crowded House until I was older. I knew Weather With You but that was it

Later on well into my 20s a boyfriend actually had this on CD in his car and I really liked it and I happen to know someone here who will see this who loves this song. Let’s just say this is for you, and I enjoy the song as much as you do

It’s Crowded House and “Fall At Your Feet”

When that first came out here in Ontario the big comment was "Doesn't the southern hemisphere have any excitement in presentation?" But there is no denying that in this case simplicity is best. A great song that speaks to the heart, the kind of music we need today! merit when the site allows!

As today is Memorial Day in the U.S., a day to honor and remember those who went overseas to war and never came home…an appropriate and deep song about not only the cost, but those who did come home and remember our fallen. And for my brothers and sisters whose names I shall never forget…

Until Valhalla.

Now ladies and gentleman one of my favorite songs of all time.

It’s no secret  I love Queen. Love Freddie Mercury and we’ll never see another like him.
I like Bohemian Rhapsody ( the song, don’t get me started on that “biopic”)
But I feel it’s overplayed over the years, and I don’t really listen to it much as some Queen fans do.

This is my favorite by Queen it’s Innuendo and what a belter. It’s dark, poignant, theatrical, and has an insane flamenco guitar session in the middle.


It was one of the last tracks by Queen with Freddie, and it’s darkness covers what the band themselves felt and the questions we ask against the inevitable

Enjoy xxx

For me Queen was a band who transcended the idea of placing then in a category. They had the ability to play any kind of music in their songs. At no time did they ever beat the listener over the head about what they were going to hear. i can' believe that people who listened to the music didn't checked out more of the various styles they heard  thanks to the invention of the internet! merit four I'll pass along when possible!
