I am going to spend some sincere time in this thread. Downloading 2 flicks that I can't believe I;m able to download way before they will be available on DVD.

Henry, you download flicks? Snap turned me onto the best site ever experienced by me..let me know....

Appreciate the effort by the way bubba. We can't have negativity in the music section , and Sugar clearly fits right in as far as wanting to contribute, eh Henry?


Movies and music......2 of the greatest things ever......

Bustin out with Johnny Nash "I Can See Clearly Now". Weird, because I heard it in a restaurant, went home and added it a couple weeks ago......."Bobby Goldsboro-Summer The First Time"......I remember that song being played in the car as like a 5 yr old. How the hell did you recall the name of that? Do you have your Dad's album collection? That'd be cool and worth some good money also.

Roger Whittaker    lol .......

Feel like Karen Carpenter was underrated, and still doesn't get her due as putting out some wonderfully done stuff.....RIP

Janis Ian.....never knew her name or title of that song

I can't stand Linda Ronstadt. I know that isn't the point, but was she banging then Gov. Jerry Brown at that time?

You Anne Murrayed me.....

Neil Diamond hurts my ears and eyes. My Mom would have told me to button my shirt up....,.

1982.....you watched the 1st 3 wrestlemanias..Cool. Back in the day! ..Couldn't play that whole Cyndi Lauper song, but everyone go ahead and make fun of me......I actually have Rick Derringer doing that Hulk  Hogan theme from the mid eighties in my 'puter and I Pods......

I hate Billy Ocean. reminds me of college when you had to dance at least 3 songs to get the girl to darn you.

Thank all thats good in the World......you finally reached the age of something decent.....Van Halen........  I was about to slit my wrists!!!!

One step forward, 2 steps back.....who the hell is "newcleus" other than two fat black chick that can't spell.

Got the razorblade hovering over my wrist again..............fullforce/ufto???? 

Run-DMC.....you get a pass on........

That "shannon" garbage was more songs we had to dance to in public in order to get laid......the crap these girl would put us through...

(garbage!!! when do you reach your 30's dammit! )

Early MJ, gotta respect it......Even though , you passed "Off The Wall" Sugar.......

That origins of Moonwalk was some pretty cool stuff Sugar......MJ did and was influenced my many going back to vaudeville, etc.

"Laid Back-White Horse" reminds me of all the strip joints we'd end up in late night when I was a stockbroker '87-ish.........

I can't name an Iron Maiden or Powerslave song (thankfully)

I can get into that Motley Crue.......

Madness, Eddy Grant, and that Human League song were being cranked every party my freshman yr college.......

Poison had some really good garbage ...."Something to Believe In"...
....and their vids cracked me the darn up!

AC/DC should have just come naturally, but you did start kinda soft....

The rest is Metal................Cool. You at least got rockin' of some type or another.........




I told you, that I'd listen to everyone of those songs  out of respect, and I couldn't wait to have you age.......LOL.........Please take that as a peace token, and bury whatever hard feelings you had about something else.....      (Please don't drege it up! (please please please)

I am putting that Bobby Goldsboro in my library right this second...Not kidding...

Henry, that's the last time I give a garbage about someone that thin skinned, especially when they were wrong in the first place........

I was waiting for your true colors to shine through, DH. Why plead with me to not dredge things back up, while in doing so, you end up dredging it back up?  I'm as thin-skinned as anybody here. I like debating. I believe I'm good at proving a point. 
As for the selections in this thread, I don't necessarily like them anymore. In fact, many of them suck in my opinion. If you actually went through all of them and came back with the Goldsboro tune to put in your library, we will always be at an impasse. That was one of my dad's favorite artists, and still is, even though he doesn't own one record or cd of any of his favorites.
 I can see through your thinly veiled, wanna-be friendship-speak and wish to have nothing else to say or do with you. Your attitude sucks and your lack of genuineness makes me sick. You say one thing and do another. To be quite frank, people like you and the little games you play are what makes me not like places like this. 
I wonder how many people in your "real" life would agree with me. 

As before, always remember; your inability to differentiate quality from success contributes greatly to the watering down of the art world's gene pool.

I never bashed your stuff. I said I'd give it a look see, imagined that I already had one or some, and would find one or some others to add.......Both ended up as being true....

I'd be missing out by not clicking music links here 

I'll freely serve myself up with every bit as dated goofy stuff that I listed to without changing the channel or assissinating my radio.

I did download that bobby goldsboro song last night, and complete coincidence, downloaded the first one on your list....the Johnny Nash tune.


Can we just let the whole "best" this and that stuff die sugar?  I have nothing to add, and if you can, feel free. I'm leaving that topic permanently

sugar---As before, always remember; your inability to differentiate quality from success contributes greatly to the watering down of the art world's gene pool.

Still trying hard to figure out why I'm singled out as the only one that agrees with my points.....At least 4 others in this thread agreed also. So just crawl off. It's really getting boring.......

By the way, I never said success over quality as being the only, but one of many criteria......

..........I mean garbage! Everyone with half a brain knows since you've enlightened us all sugar, that Jeffrey Buckley dwarfs Led Zeppelin as far as talent goes and are a much better rock band....Just plain old bad luck that the J.Buckley Band didn't get the same lotto style luck as Led Zep did over the years.

It's just not fair dammit!!!!

Back to the original idea of this thread, which is to chronicle the music I heard and experienced throughout my life. It's becoming a sort of auto-biography and I'm interested to see how it ends up. I'm fully aware that this is a self-indulgent exercize but I'm enjoying it.

When Pearl Jam hit the scene I was floored. I was eighteen and had never heard anything like it. Consequently, I was sucked into the Seattle sound and wouldn't emerge until I was twenty-one.

Alice In Chains was the main reason I found a calling to be a singer of any sort. How could I not sing along to the harmonies they came up with? Great chorus in this song, "Sunshine."

My rear view mirror in my '79 Monte Carlo was a constant vibrating mess when Soundgarden was playing. Holy garbage were these guys great to drive fast to.

Amazingly, during the Soundgarden, Alice In Chains, and Pearl Jam days, I found out I had a naturally booming, baritone voice. I had sung in a choir before and was recommended to take some vocal lessons. Here are some of the tunes I learned. Some are whacky, some are most beautiful.

I was one of the singers in a small production of Stephen Sondheim's "A Little Night Music" when I was nineteen. Believe it or not, one of my singing partners was Amy Jo Johnson. She went on to be the first "pink" Power Ranger and co-star in the t.v. show, "Felicity." No big whoop, I know. But man did I and everybody else in the cast have a big crush on her. She was quite the cutie. This is an example of what we did in that show.

I enjoyed it also. Wasn't as familiar with the Metal stuff, but it was fun going late 60s to present.

sugar, would you know some names from the Seattle music scene late '70s till early 90s? I have a bunch of friends now that I run into on a semi-regular basis and talk/correspond with, that I didn't know then, when they were involved in it all, and the Seattle Scene was really great......

I'm not familiar with anything off-hand but check this link out and you can choose for yourself from all the names.

The featured aria in this clip is what I had to learn for a concert. I have no idea why such a young singer could be expected to sing such a demanding aria, but I did it anyway. I figured this cartoon was better than any real life performance. Some stereotypes and racist overtones in this clip. Suck it up.

During my college years, i acquired a cd with this piece of music on it. It was a recording of St. Martin in the Field Orchestra performing Ralph Vaughn William's "Fantasia on a theme of Thomas Tallis." The orchestra in this clip does a pretty good version. It's 17 minutes. Sit back and turn the lights low, drink some scotch and think of someone you've lost or yearn for. It's one of the few pieces of music which brings me to tears every so often.

 I recommend you not watch the video whilst listening. Close your eyes if you have to.

You ever get any opportunities to sing for some bands you liked and/or for cash?
