13 Oct 2011, 12:08 de SnaderCIk zal beginnen met een inleiding in het hele TOO MUCH-gebeuren. Het moge duidelijk zijn dat de jaren tachtig ondermeer bekend staat om zijn briljante tv-series zoals Transformers, A-team en Knightrider. Zo had ook Karateheld en Texas Ranger Chuck Norris zijn eigen tekenfilmserie, Karate Kommando's. (Ik vraag me af of een eventuele fanclub de Karate Kommando Klub had geheten.) Enfin, tijdens zijn spannende tekenfilmavonturen werd Chuck ondermeer bijgestaan door een aziatisch jongetje met de naam Too Much. Als die naam al niet belachelijk genoeg was, had het jongetje ook nog Tourette, wat zich manifesteerde in het om de haverklap roepen van "TOO MUCH!". (Voor een demonstratie klik hier @ 00:36.) Daarnaast bleek deze vorm van Tourette ook nog eens besmettelijk. Nu telkens als ik een engelstalig tv-programma kijk en ik hoor "too much", wordt ik afgeleid en in het ergste geval moet ik het ook nog eens herhalen. Ondertussen heeft het zich ook verspreid naar teksten en ja, naar muziek. …

8 Nov 2009, 3:24 de liberaltarheelI haven't looked at the journal entries I've written here in ages, probably not since 2007. It was very interesting to look back at the entry about my favorite songs beginning with each letter of the alphabet. The purpose was to be able to look back and see how my tastes have changed, and they definitely have (although not drastically). Here goes:
A = Atmosphere
B = still Bizarre Love Triangle
C = Cemetery Gates
D = Disorder
E = Enjoy the Silence
F = Float On
G = even though it sounds like a lullaby -- or maybe because it sounds like a lullaby -- Goodnight Lovers
H = Here Comes Your Man
I = In A Big Country
J = Joan of Arc
K = The Killing Jar
L = Lonesome Tonight
M = Man in the Mirror
N = Now My Heart Is Full
O = Out Of Control
P = Policy of Truth
Q = Question of Time
R = Reptile
S = Shock the Monkey
T = my current all time favorite -- Temptation
U = Under Pressure
V = Valentine
W = The Wolf
X = X-Files Theme
Y = Your Silent Face
Z = Ziggy Stardust
23 Jun 2008, 3:39 de Champ213Or how I got to listen to the music I listen to…
A good start...
It all starts more than 20 years ago… yes, that means we’re deep in the 80s. Good grief.
My first contacts with music (not counting children’s songs or whatever – but I don’t recall listening much to them anyway) happened with help of my youngest aunt. She is some 10 years older than me, so when I was in kindergarten, she was a teen living with her parents - my grandparents - where I used to spent a lot of time. (She also had a younger brother who was a major The Cure fan at that time... he will play a major role later on.) So my aunt introduced me to my first musical loves. The biggest one being – lo and behold - Paul Simon. I especially adored Slip Slidin' Away.
She also had this Peter Gabriel VCR with all his music videos. I liked Shock the Monkey the most, and when I watch this clip today I have to say in retrospect: I must have been a weird kid. That clip is ahellotta bizarre.
I also remember passionately loving U2’s song One. Still today, btw.
26 Abr 2008, 14:12 de annodamydalOk, let's try to start a meme.
Write down the worst songs of the artists in your top 10 along with some explanation. "But they don't have any!" is not a valid answer. No artist is flawless. I'm sure I'll be hard pressed to find some, but let's go for it...
1/ Pink Floyd
They don't have really a lot of bad songs, but the prize goes to Seamus, a little ditty on what is actually my favorite album by them next to Wish You Were Here. If I heard Seamus and didn't know it, I would not think it was a Pink Floyd song. That's not always a bad thing ([San Tropez doesn't sound like "Pink Floyd" either, and I love San Tropez) but this is just...weird. Second place goes to Several Species of Small Furry Animals Gathered in a Cave and Grooving With a Pict.
Okay, don't kill me for this. I KNOW it's got a great riff. I KNOW it's unbeleivably catchy. I KNOW it's a radio staple. I just never liked Immigrant Song.
3. The Beatles

13 Feb 2008, 16:24 de meemmowOggi Peter Gabriel compie gli anni.
Ho messo a rotazione alcune delle sue canzoni, ed ecco una tracklist ideale per festeggiare uno dei più grandi musicisti di sempre:
Games Without Frontiers
Shock the Monkey
E per finire in bellezza direi
In Your Eyes
Buon ascolto a tutti... and happy birthday Pete! :D
25 Ene 2008, 21:57 de Champ213Continued from Part I - The Japanese Stuff
Some of my favourite music-related videos (only counting stuff that availible on youtube).
This contains some of my favourite bands/songs, but it also focuses on the visual aspect (it's videos after all.) So I apologize in advance if I get too fangirl-ish now and then, or for any overuse of words like "hot", "sexy" and "awesome" that may occur. In the end I'm just a woman too, you know...
Part II - the other stuff
Alice Cooper - Bed of Nails
1) Alice Cooper is cool. 2) His jacket is cool. 3) The song is beyond awesome. Corny, but awesome.
Alice Cooper & the Muppets - You And Me
Beakie and Alice are such a lovely couple, lol.
Bjork - All Is Full of Love
When I saw this the first time it actually turned me on. I mean, really.

As we travelled around Europe on mid-80s Summer holidays, the greenpeace album was an omnipresent soundtrack. As happened too often with cassettes, the tape was last heard emitting an unpleasant screech, almost certainly not helped by being left in a searing hot car.
It appears that the CD of this album can now be bought for €50. Fortunately, I have managed to find most of the tracks for rather less. Indeed, only the George Harrison track (which was never the highlight of the compilation, even in it's rerecorded form) remains to be found.
1 Shock the Monkey
2 Is This the World We Created?
3 Turn Your Back On Me
5 Mad World
7 Let's All Make A Bomb
8 Show Me (live in Detroit)
9 Push + Shove
11 Wings of a Dove
12 Human Racing
13 Save the World
