What was the first song you ever heard by 6?
I think it was A Letter to Elise
What is your favorite album of 2?
I really can't seem to be able to decide between In the Flat Field and Mask. When I first started listening to them, I was fairly sure that I liked In the Flat Field the most, but after giving Mask a couple of good listens, I became rather undecided. So, yeah, one of those two.
What is your favorite lyric that 5 has sung?
Hmm...at the moment it is London calling to the imitation zone/Forget it, brother, you can go at it alone from London Calling.
How many times have you seen 4 live?
What is your favorite song by 7?

8 Nov 2009, 13:36 by yusakuasanoSat 7 Nov – Peter Murphy, minor mine
Ήταν μια περίεργη συναυλία για πολλούς λόγους η χθεσινή του Peter Murphy.
Περίεργη γιατί έβλεπα έναν μεγάλο performer με καταπληκτική ακόμα και τώρα φωνή να αποδίδει μόνο από το ειδικό βάρος του ταλέντου του και της ιστορίας του. Να μην φτάνει στο 100% της απόδοσης του και συνάμα να μας χαρίζει μερικές πολύ όμορφες στιγμές.
Περίεργη επειδή ήταν ξεκάθαρο ότι δεν ήθελε να παίξει Bauhaus (τουλάχιστον τους πρώτους δίσκους τους), ενώ κουβαλάει ίσως πλέον δυσβάστακτα, την κληρονομιά του πρώην συγκροτήματος του. Γιατί νομίζω ότι πλέον δεν τον πρεσβεύουν. Διασκέδαζε παραπάνω στα δικά του τραγούδια (ή ακόμα και με το Too Much 21st Century από την τελευταία δουλειά των Bauhaus) παρά στο She’s In Parties και στο Bela Lugosi’s Dead που ούτως ή άλλως μας το έδωσε αποσπασματικά μαζί με το δικό του Strange Kind of Love. Δεν είναι τυχαίο ότι και τα παραπάνω τραγούδια ήταν νομίζω τα μοναδικά που ερμήνευσε από τους Bauhaus. …

13 Dec 2008, 00:47 by warren33David Bowie's musical career began in 1967, however it was 1969's "Space Oddity" that marked his rise to rock stardom. My first introduction to Bowie came via Jim Henson's 1986 film Labyrinth in which he played Jareth, the Goblin King. This was also my initial introduction to Bowie's music, as he had collaborated with Trevor Jones in composing the score and five pop tunes which would appear on the soundtrack. "Magic Dance" remains a great underplayed 80s pop song, but when I was young, the haunting "Within You" was my favourite. The where David Bowie sings the song as Jareth, strolling coldly about his M.C. Escher-like castle as he mocks Sarah for being unable to get to her baby brother was - and is - fascinating to me. As a child, it was an enthralling and tense cinematic experience. Today I watch the scene and appreciate it for it videoesque quality - it is no less than a music video right in the middle of the film (one of five), but the song is as haunting as ever.
9 May 2008, 16:53 by jefferyngot burnt out on all my usual genres... oddly enough i found myself playing some of the old R&R that was around when i was a kid... funny how many decades it's been since i've listened to most of it. my older brothers used to play all of that and i got into it and played it to death in the 70's... i never stopped listening to some 70's like Bowie or Stevie Winwood from Blind Faith, Traffic, or T-Rex... ( it looks like last fm currently has winwood's name misspelled as windwood... ) i suppose since artists like Daniel Ash have remixed Telegram Sam and Ziggy Stardust, that some of the 70's music never went out of style for me... but there were a lot of bands i dropped like Led Zeppelin and other such rock bands... it is interesting hearing them again after all these years... i can see that it was the songs that had a lot of blues influence that really appealed to me, though i didn't know that when i was a kid... it always fun hearing other old R&R remixed into other genres these days. …
24 Apr 2008, 23:32 by marwabluesRingo Starr - Liverpool 8
Stop trying to find Lennon lyrical depth or Harrison musical beauty and take it for what it is. A wonderful man who loves music, getting together with some friends to make some fun songs. Yes there's going to corny references to past songs, particularly Beatles lyrics, but they're all part of the fun.
This album marks a break from the tradition of the writing and producing of Mark Hudson, but only on the title track which is co-written and "over-produced" by Dave Stewart. The only disappointment for me is to not have Stewart on more of the album. But the other tracks aren't a letdown, with gems like For Love.
Radiohead - In Rainbows
This doesn't really belong here, as most of us have had this album since it became available online for whatever price you wished to pay. But its physical release started 2008 with a bang and has led me to awaken my Radiohead fan inside.
I only ever bought Amnesiac, an album I adore, and was never very familiar with the rest of their output. …
9 May 2007, 16:10 by rtreynorSo, last night at the restaurant, I heard an 80s song on the house music that I hadn't heard since the 80s. That's quite impressive. Most of the songs heard now from that decade can be heard almost every day if you seek them out.
And usually, when the MusicChoice station that is played at work plays a "deep track" from the 80s - I have no problem recognizing it.
Is that Make A Circuit With Me? It must be The Polecats. Stand By? That's Roman Holiday. Who's doing that cover of Ziggy Stardust? That's obviously Bauhaus.
I was a child of the Reagan era, and like most teenagers, a huge consumer of music. I wanted to know everything out there. And for a large degree, I did. I can pretty much name the artist of any song that had a video on MTV back then, just by hearing a few measures.
And the few songs that have haunted me - the ones I wasn't all that familiar with back in the 80s, but have been stuck in my head - I've sought out and discovered the title and track of the song. …
