Or just me being feisty on a Friday amped up on raspberry diet smapplr
Hey, I'm just glad you are back
you were kinda on a Forum-diet for a while there

I've always thought that when we see someone in the wild who we *suspect* is a boardie, the secret question should be, "Hey, are you a friend of Kosmo Vinyl?".  Anyone not in the inner circle will be completely dumbfounded.

Unless they are aware who the real Kosmo Vinyl is.
Wait, I thought we determined he was a bot....with a proclivity for KPOP and Welsh bands

The Style Council was an amazing group of musicians who weren't tied to any one genre of music and could easily move between jazz, soul and pop.  Their sound is timeless and they managed some truly memorable songs along the way.  They influence many people to explore music beyond the sound of The Jam.

“Introducing....” was their first and,sadly, best release.  From there they were a singles band as far as I’m concerned. Some great, songs but the albums were underwhelming. I gave up on them after Internationalists.

You know I thought of a good one...Nile Rodgers


He was everywhere..a ton of great albums produced by him or even deriving from Chic

Madonna is in the top 3, absolutely. Her impact to women and use of sexuality in popular culture was unparalleled.

Duran Duran, in the top 10. Especially for impact on music videos.

I kinda feel like Huey Lewis and the Police deserve at least an honorable mention.

probably could have started a new thread but....

was reminded yesterday of the best three day stretch in a row of concerts I attended  in July 1983

The Police - Synchronicity Tour
David Bowie - Serious Moonlight Tour
Peter Gabriel - Security Tour

wasn't supposed to be three in a row, but silly Sting blew out his voice at a Tigers game and their two concerts scheduled had to delayed a day.  there was also two Bowie shows on tap also at Joe Louis Arena that week.
