OK, so there's an ages-old thread that goes something like "Post a song you love...", but I found that a bit too limiting.
Here you can post songs you merely like or songs you love. All are welcome. They can be rare or famous, whatever.

I'll start with The Call's "Scene Beyond Dreams", which I was listening to on Spotify and felt it was a good fit for such a thread. It's a resonant anthem with powerful, dramatic vocals.

Great forgotten new wave track. The Quake in San Francisco played this a lot, and my parents would've killed me if they'd ever heard this.

Here's a song I heard for the first time in eons while at a restaurant last weekend. But first a little back-story :
This was a song I was generally aware of since it came out and was a minor FM Radio hit around 1981. I never really gave it much thought until it was covered by Howard Jones at a concert I attended in college (I know, the Eighties). Anyways, before he covered it, he explained what the song is about. He explained that it's a song told from the point of view of a ten-year old boy in the 1950s who went to the World's Fair and was so excited after seeing their "Vision of the Future" which depicted what the world might look like by 1976 (the Bicentennial must have been to them like the Year 2000 was to us growing up). His overly optimistic view of what the future would hold is the point of the song. Knowing and understanding that, I fell in love with this song.
(The cryptic title I.G.Y. refers to International Geophysical Year which was a scientific project that ran from 1957-1958)

Song - Criminal: Group - Disturbed
Song - Permission To Fly: Artist - Jordan Pruitt

I know, I know...my "tastes" are all over the place. Please do not use me as a barometer of what is good in Pop Culture (music, movies, books, etc.), I like a ton of pop culture stuff, most of it falling under Sturgeon's Law of 90% being crap, and 10% being good. That being said, a nearly 7 /12 year old Disney Channel artist's bubblegum pop song and a hard rock song from an acclaimed group both produced songs that I can listen too on a loop for quite some time without losing my mind.

It's about the 7th Panzer Division during the Battle for France while Rommel commanded it. It got the nickname Gespensterdivision because nobody, including the German High Command, knew where the hell it was because it was moving so fast.

Thanks for all the entries, guys and gals. Some aren't playing for me; must be a temporary glitch. Skull Orchard, I like "Understanding Jane".

Here's one I love. Rick Springfield's best song, imo, a mighty anthem that didn't make a ripple on the charts: "Tear it All Down"

"There She Goes" is a famous song but if you haven't heard the entire album, it's worth your time. If Lee Mavers wasn't such a difficult/troubled person, there's no telling how great The La's could have been.

In 1976, Roxy Music broke up temporarily. Phil Manzanera and Brian Eno gathered a who's who of the British prog/art rock scene and performed three concerts as "801". Here's their live version of The Beatles "Tomorrow Never Knows". It's jazzy and psychedelic. I particularly like the drumming on this song by Simon Phillips, who has basically played with everyone:

Depending on your tolerance for K-Pop and/or lesbian overtones in music videos, you'll either hate this song or love it. I fall into the latter camp, as I find the tune to be rather catchy, and the video is just about the sexiest thing that I've ever seen. That last shot is KILLER. Here's Anda:

Thanks for starting this thread, Norm. Love to be introduced to songs (and artists) that I might otherwise never hear.

3 more:

"Flower Duet" (composer: Lakme)...used in numerous tv & film productions (The Hunger, 50 Shades, etc.): 8Qx2lMaMsl8

Was viewing one of the dozens of live performances w/ full orchestra & someone had posted the comment "If your cellphone rings during this, you go straight to Hell."

*************************************

<b>"How Can I Tell You"</b> by Cat Stevens: MRHN7nUg26M

The album version is achingly, heartbreakingly beautiful, but this live BBC version is so clear & well-recorded & shows what a great singer he was w/out needing studio overdubs/autotune, etc.

*************************************

<b>"Joan of Arc"</b> by Jennifer Warnes & Leonard Cohen: gtwUyDPXROQ

Never get tired of this; the perfect marriage of lyrics, music, and performance. Stunning whether in studio or live.

I was a fan back in the day--I've still got Fear of the Unknown on vinyl, and a special 12" DJ maxi single pushing "The Man I Feel" and "I Don't Feel Better." "I Don't Feel Better" was the track that drew me to the album, but "A Little Knowledge..." was the keeper. I also liked his lone Top 40 (but just barely) single, "Salt in My Tears":

Yeah, "Salt in My Tears" is another good one. He was accused of misogyny because of some of his venomous lyrics.

And the sparse demos are also amazing to listen to; just Harrison, his guitar, and the occasional instrumental overdub.

The chugging barnburner "World of Indifference", my favourite song of Richard X. Heyman's. Insanely, it was an outtake of his excellent 1998 album Cornerstone.

The Heyman track reminds me of Hoodoo Gurus.

Speaking of Long Ryders & cowpunk/alt-country, here are two good ones:

The Other Shoe Old 97's. This one has Waylon Jennings guesting on lead vocals backed by the 97's. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unAj_9wnjrs

<b>White Lies</b> Jason & Scorchers. One of most insane live performances ever on network tv: 9unLB8lNCJ8

Bonus: <b>Golden Ball & Chain</b> by Jason/Scorchers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tyoU1_weJBE Love this tune!

These guys are buddies of mine. They just put out this one album, all self-produced (home-recorded, I think) in 2008. If their timing were different or if there was any justice in the world, these guys could have been developed into a hugely successful band, IMO.

They're kind of sort of a dark Southern gothic mix of Americana/Byrds-type stuff, with maybe a bit of punk thrown in (the guitar player played in a Sex Pistols tribute band)--lots of Civil War themes. I don't know what happened to the singer, but I'm still friends with the guitar player on FB.

Interesting stuff, although I'll pull a Norm and say that it didn't grab me. It reminds me of the type of early LP's, EP's, demos, etc. of bands that became more polished later & turned the best of those early tracks into more solid tunes. Ryan Adams' old band Whiskeytown comes to mind.

The second tune sounds as though it could have been produced by Terry Melcher (Byrds) or Mitch Easter (Connells, REM, Let's Active).

Offering my "professional critique" (as a former member of a garage band...although, weren't we all members of a neighborhood band in the '60's? :lol:), here's my two cents: Lyrics need more work (look at Springsteen notebooks to see how many times he changed lyrics to iconic tunes); some of those verses are a mouthful. Also, a bit too much imagery & wordplay that overwhelms some of the content. I'd advise a "less is more" approach (see, Neil Young, Gillian Welch, Robbie Robertson).

The guitar solos are also a bit underwhelming, and the first song could stand some heavy edits to tighten it up (could use a break or hook that shifts the melody; otherwise, it can get repetitive really fast).

They remind me a bit of some other 80's-early 90's bands (Lone Justice, Michelle Malone & Drag the River, Sidewinders, Cruzados, Vulger Boatmen, Rank & File, as well as Long Ryders). All bands with lots of potential but either couldn't get over the hump of mass appeal, splintered into solo acts, or simply never could find the sweet spot or ran dry of material (or money).

Tommy Bolin: Post Toastee (1976)

Thanks for posting this, kd (along with the STARZ clip). It shows the serious gap in my 70's rock education that I was confusing Tommy Bolin (who died in '76) with Marc Bolan (who died in '77). Both died in their twenties, but that was about it as far as their sound (it's like confusing Deep Purple with T Rex! -wink-).

The opening riff reminded me of Rev. Gary Davis' "Cocaine" (as performed by Cale or Clapton), while later spots made me think of Edgar Winter.

But the guitar solos got me hooked, and now I'm listening to Tommy B. cuts just to hear his guitar work.

Curse you, kd5!

Two bookends by the Handsome Family (probably best known for their incredible "Far From Any Road" used as theme song for HBO's "True Detective" series). Both cuts from The Singing Bones:

<b>"If The World Should End in Ice"</b> DdkLfvb4Hbw

<b>"If The World Should End in Fire"</b> 4FA1QlYVFJE

Although the two above cuts are atypical of their sound, they illustrate the gothic quality of Rennie's lyrics. I can't get enough of them; they remind me of author Robert Morgan's (Gap Creek) stark, bleak poetry such as "Mountain Bride" found here: http://www.robert-morgan.com/poems/mountain-bride/.

Handsome Family (Brett & Rennie Sparks) manage to combine horror and black (dark, not racial) humor...sort of like a musical version of Fargo. Ghosts, dead siblings, murdered spouses, bleached bones, frozen corpses...all fun stuff in the hands of the Sparks couple!

Yep, those are fair criticisms. The singer is a literate guy, and I get what you say about going heavy with the imagery, but as far as the phonetic sounds of the words, the timing and the number of syllables, I thought his vocal delivery worked well. I guess that's a subjective thing, though.

But yeah, I think you hit on a big issue---having an experienced producer with another set of ears to tighten and polish things up is hugely important. That's something that a lot of independent, low-budget artists (myself included) suffer from, and why they can't make that next step up with their music.

It's funny, these guys are a good bit older than me, and when I heard "Shadow Girls", I said the same thing to the singer that you did--"wow, I can really hear the R.E.M/ Mitch Easter sound on that one." He really didn't know what I was talking about---he hadn't really listened to much 80's music at all, but they just had all the same influences as those bands. :)

Moving father-son ballad, "I am My Father's Son" by Dan Hill:

Thanks for posting this, Norm...new for me. Certainly sounds as though he poured his feelings into the song, and I'm sure a lot of us can relate to dads who were somewhat distant & made mistakes but were doing the best they knew how. Makes me think that a thread could be posted on songs about parents each Mother's/Father's Day...along with familiar ones from Harry Chapin, Cat Stevens, Merle Haggard, John Lennon, Dolly Parton, Tori Amos, etc., probably a lot of less-familiar gems.

Here's one that sums up my father-in-law perfectly and makes my wife cry every time she hears it. Thought of it recently when finishing up going through her parents' attic when cleaning out the house (closing estate). Her dad was an orphan during the Great Depression and was passed from pillar to post; maybe that's what gave him his big heart toward seeing the best in others (particularly children).

Nice song, creekdipper. I'm a sucker for ballads or songs that touch the heart. Your idea for a thread on songs about parents is a meritorious one, if there are enough songs to fit the bill.
My cherished dad died 6 years ago (he and I were extremely close), and a song about a parent's death that always chokes me up is Rick Springfield's very short "April 24th, 1981" (the date his dad died), which closed his '82 album Success Hasn't Spoiled Me Yet. I can't relate to the metaphysical aspects of the lyrics, but they move me nonetheless. They are sentiments shared by all of us who love our parents.
Here someone uses the song to pay tribute to his/her dad. What a soaringly sad piece. It takes me back to the wrenching last moments at my dad's bedside:

These are music videos of The Byrds on TV in 1965 that I think are amazing!

Someone figured out that these were actually synced-to-the-record performances - common at the time - so the tinny old TV sound was dumped and these videos were resynced to the hi-fidelity records, which makes them sound fantastic.

And that good sound quality + the Go-Go dancers make these perfect blasts from that era:

The Byrds - "I'll Feel A Whole Lot Better" (I think this '60s tv show is called "Hollywood A Go-Go"):

lPoylQfhnAI


The Byrds - "It Won't Be Wrong" (not sure which tv show this one is from, but this is my favorite song by the Byrds):

Myb6Tgcjdps


The Byrds - "Set You Free This Time" (no dancers in this one):

aZXZeJ8BhNA



Another thing in these videos is seeing David Crosby (pre-"Crosby, Stills, & Nash"), looking very young and without his later trademark moustache, but wearing his (at the time) trademark green suede cape / poncho (which was sold at auction in 2013 for something like $15,000).

(And a bit of trivia: The "Y" in the name "The Byrds" is "why" there's a "Y" in the band name "The Long Ryders" posted here earlier - it's a tribute to this legendary "Jangle Pop" influential band.)

I've been on a Cocteau Twins kick lately and going thru their song catalogue, so here are a few highlights...


This song titled "Iceblink Luck" is the one that started me on this kick:

L_Tj4bJ0VFw


This one called "Heaven or Las Vegas" was in my travel mix when I went to Vegas a few months ago:

6KnYw4EwYGc


This song "Pearly Dewdrops' Drops" gets a lot of replays too:

s-5Xgw6d3h0


And going into the band's earlier music that I was unfamiliar with, I ran across this very ethereal song (its intro alone is 3 minutes long!) and guessed that there was probably a good video for it. So I searched and stumbled across this fan-made video that is so good at fitting the song that the band's label should do whatever they can do to make it an "official video":

Judas Priest's cover of Joan Baez's Diamonds and Rust. The version on the Unleashed In The East album conjures up so many emotions, one of the few songs for me that the cover version is better than the original.

Thanks for the help, guys. As Ky-Fi correctly guessed, I was clueless about how to post more than the link. Had started to ask a couple of times but was embarrassed after having to ask about bolding, highlighting, etc. in the past. We post-computer-classes old-timers who are self-taught need all the help we can get.

I'm a big fan of Sly and the Family Stone and this clip from (I guess) some TV show back in 1968 of the band performing an medley of some of their best songs is both fantastic and appears to be genuinely a "live music" performance despite being from back then when that was the exception on TV instead of the norm.

6q1vAa0br0w

I also like in how, when the audience is shown later in it, they are all dressed up in suits and nice clothes. I remember being told that dressing up to go out was the norm back then, no matter what the event was. And this music clip illustrates that.

In short, this doesn't bite.

(Posting since it's not showing in your earlier post. Nice song. Btw, I'm obviously doing something wrong since when I paste the link & submit, the youtube link remains to the left. If I click on edit to remove it, the entire link to the song is all I see.)

So, if I'm understanding you correctly, all I do is copy the parts within the [yt] tags & then paste? I'll try that to see if it works.

"Urgh! A Music War" ( details (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Urgh!_A_Music_War)) is a rare gem of a concert film with great footage of a lot of up-and-coming bands in the early 1980s (although it's just a one-song-per-band concert movie so don't get whole sets).

I saw a VHS version of it many years ago, so it had crappy picture and sound quality. But checking if it ever got a proper release, I found out that it's available on DVD (DVD-R) so now I'm thinking about getting a copy.

Here's some performances from it of some of bands that I'm a fan of:

Devo - "Uncontrollable Urge"

The Cramps - "Tear It Up"

Danzig, How the Gods Kill. I've been a big fan of Danzig since I first discovered the Misfits and Samhain way back in my skateboard days as a kid. His first solo album was a huge favorite of mine but I got out of metal for the most part during the 90s and only recently discovered this song a few months ago and fell in love with it.
