Jessica’s Jiving Journey Of Life
« on: May 15, 2022, 05:08:38 PM »
Hi

Just a new thread with some tracks that mean something to my life. Some I’ve posted before I’m sure but today starting out I’m going to post some from the hear I was born including what was Number one in the UK on my birthday.

Enjoy xxx

A-HA The Sun Always Shines On Tv. This was number one in the UK the day I was born from the Norwegian group that were perhaps better known for their most famous hit. Take On Me.
I didn’t really listen to this growing up but I do like the backing today

 
Simply Red. Holding Back The Years.
Really love this song more now than I did growing up. It’s quite a beautiful song.
One we can all relate to at some point.


My favorite Cyndi Lauper song and it’s just so lovely, always makes my heart go to that awe struck mode, wether I don’t know whether to sing or cry.
True Colors

This is just awesome love them just wish I got to see them in concert.
Bangles Manic Monday


This one is a shout-out to my brother who was lucky enough to be 16 in 1986 and he played this on repeat. I do like the beat to it.
It’s Talk Talk Life’s What You Make It



Enjoy all and I’ll be back soon xx

A hearty Welcome back to the music board! Been a lonely place after vile8r seems to have forsaken posting!

Some very interesting selections, two that were over played here, two that never made video rotations and one that just makes me cringe!

Cyndi Lauper and the Bangles were played to death here, since the toured here quite often

Simple Minds needs to be put out of their misery and ours!

A-ha  made radio play but failed to crack the Muchmusic rotation, that 's they are considered  one hit wonders in Canada!

Can't say that I heard or ever saw Talk Talk but I agree that the beat is  very remember able!

Overall a perfect welcoming back post and I'm looking forward to more when you have the time!

The year is 1992  I was 6 and after school I used to help my mum while she was a receptionist in a local hotel in a scenic part of England that we’d just moved to, or rather just sit in a room behind the desk and make the use of cable television which was a luxury back then and even switching from children’s shows to MTV( which actually had music videos on it then)  You couldn’t do that nowadays but I loved it and it was so interesting meeting tourists from around the world. The Americans were always so flush and impressed me so much that I wanted to live there. It was a great summer and here is a shout out to a simpler time of my past.

Shakespeare Sister-Stay. This video used to freak me out!

Crowded House- Weather With You. Loved this!

Def Leppard- Let’s Get Rocked. Just loved the video looked so futuristic then!

Tamsin Archer-Sleeping Satellite, this one really takes me back there.

Right Said Fred- Deeply Dippy. Totally naff song but loved it then! Can’t anymore British bingo bus tacky seaside feel than this.

REM- Man On The Moon, just awesome then as it is today.


There’s many more but these ones stick out of that time. Enjoy xx

Love this thread! Shakespears Sister Stay vid is still a fave of mine. Those different years and songs really take me back. Thank you.
Now is the time on Sprockets when we dance!

God someone really knows how to make me feel ancient! If we had been talking back when you first heard Shakespears Sister, I would be in prison now!
You're well aware that I'm a huge Crowded Hose fan
Can take or lave Def Leppard and R.E.M., both were overplayed here since the toured here quite regularly
Now Tasmin Archer, I have heard before but I am more familiar with  Kim Wilde's cover of the some for purely personal reasons! Song did chart here  but by then I was beginning to ignore modern music!

Overall this is a great presentation that brings back memories, some of which I had forgotten!

Al least now when i talk to you, I'm just considered a creepy old man, not a pedophile! :emot_laughing.gif:

It’s a Queen night and one of my favorite bands passed down from my Parents as they showed me at the age of 9 the Live Aid performance as it was shown on its 10 year anniversary back in 1995

So not going to play the usual here. We all know ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ and ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love ’ You are epic.

Here’s my top picks from the band of bands.

1) Dont Stop Me Now. How many times have I danced to this over the years. At home. At school discos, pub jukeboxes and family dos. It’s just everything Queen was. Fun, energizing, jivy. I loved this and unleashes so much happy times.


2) Innuendo. Their last album with Freddie! It’s heart wrenching and so so powerful. First heard it when my dad got the Greatest Hits but didn’t pay much attention to it until I was older. At those troubled teen years of 13-15 this was my Queen song and many others from this dark album. Watching someone you love slowly die can make one relate to this album a lot and this song.


3) Tear It Up. From the harder rock album the Works in 1984. I really love  the energy of this made for stadium gig also slightly sexual too . Great to see live I imagine they did play it the last two tours with Freddie. It gets me going and only a recent one to my Queen playlist.



4) Lap Of The Gods Revisited.  Another recent one that I’ve listened to, I think it’s just an awesome track and they played this at on the Magic Tour. It’s just classic early Queen. Progressive, melodramatic, and takes me to an empowering mood.



5) Finally a bit more well known and I love the beats in this. It’s a track called Scandal. It wasn’t well received and the video was hated by the band as Freddie was clearly sick in it. It’s a track we can all relate to about reading the news and selling stories.



Enjoy my darlings as Freddie would say xxxx

IMO The greatest band in Music history- more important than The Beatles. They recorded songs that can speak to multiple people on many levels. Unfortunately they are trying to destroy their legacy by accepting super poor imitation singers to lead them! Merit To Come when allowed!

To - Get - Her.....
Compared to you, I'm ancient!!

My favorite Queen song was "Killer Queen." in the mid 70's. I used to follow the original Def Leppard around Europe when I was Stationed in Germany.....

I raised My two Sons on Classic Rock and 80's. What passes for "Music" today doesn't hold a candle to that era.....

College years. A few songs from my college years that stand out.
I was in there from 2004-2007 but some of the songs are older and today make me think of clubs, pubs and parties, not to mention the commute on the train everyday.

Harvey Danger. Flagpole Sitta

This song by an obscure US band that this is their only hit in the UK made popular by the hit show that I adored called Peep Show which came out and was watched in my college years. Great times. 



From one of my favorite bands Feeder.
Feeling a Moment. Just a beautiful powerful song and one I grew up to as I grew out of the teenage rebellion songs, and more into easy listening.


However one of those revolt bands remained in my playlist and that was Evanescence. This one was just marvelous in the Summer of 06, had my first car then and this was played down the motorways, streets, country lanes and along the coast! Nostalgic now.


Graduation!!! Love this summer jive from a former Sugababe
Not very heard outside the UK Imagine but thank goodness I’ve heard it
Song for Mutya by Groove Armada


It’s not college without Green Day and this is was and always will be one of my favorites. My high school graduation song so just the start of a new phase in life.
It’s Green Day Time of Your Life


And about this time I began listening to Soundarden. Nothing else said just sex…..sexy…..and even sexier songs and singer. RIP Chris Cornell!

Soundgarden. Burden In My Hand!



Enjoy xxx

Okay so in order

Harvey Danger- Lead singer looks a lot like British Comic, talk show host Alan Carr

Feeder- a decent band that i first learned about after hearing "Buck Rogers"

Evanescence- never saw what people sees in the band. Sure Amy can sing but she never touched me!

Song for Mutya by Groove Armada- I'm pretty positive that you presented this before but damn if I could find it! heard of her of course from British Radio. best song to me from all presented!

Green Day And Soundgarden- well this should get me heat but neither impressed me enough to listen to them!

Overall like what you presented, merit to come from me!

RIP Olivia Newton John.

Grease was a part of teenage culture and I think it will be for young women many years to come. I’m not a fan of the movie anymore as looking back, it’s cheesy, sends the wrong messages out and the age of the cast compared to what they should have been. However it was a part of me growing up and watching it with friends, my sister, ex boyfriends. Except my mother. She hated it lol

Great soundtrack and thank you for the memories.

So far only Olivia has been able to get me to sit through two months worth of daily viewing a movie. Course over here in 1977  you could get into the midday matinee for two bucks! I loved Olivia's  song right from the start, but then back in the early seventies i was more into country than anything else! Really going to miss Olivia for more reasons than her talent!
