Marillion - "Kayleigh"


Been checking out some of their earlier works the last couple of days, and pleasantly surprised by what I'm hearing. I was familiar with the "Misplaced childhood" album, but not with the other albums from the era with Fish on vocals. The title track to "Script for a jester's tear" is very good. Lyrically this band is quite good too, though sometimes a bit on the tough side for a non-native speaker.

He collaborated with The Residents, who are very weird.

Top 2000
 
Since 1999, the Top 2000 is an annual marathon radio program, that plays the 2000 most popular songs of all time, from Christmas through New Year's Eve. Hosted by Dutch national radio station NPO Radio 2. Over half of the population of the Netherlands listens to the broadcast each year.

During the 6 to 7 day broadcast, the station broadcasts a set of 2000 songs that have been voted on by the show's audience via Internet voting to be the "most popular songs of all time". Voters can also nominate their own choices.

The song "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen has traditionally been voted the most popular song on the countdown (16x).

The top 10 of 2018:
  1. Queen - "Bohemian Rhapsody"
  2. Eagles - "Hotel California"
  3. Billy Joel - "Piano Man"
  4. Led Zeppelin - "Stairway to Heaven"
  5. Pink Floyd - "Wish You Were Here"
  6. Deep Purple - "Child in Time"
  7. Pearl Jam - "Black"
  8. Toto - "Africa"
  9. Coldplay - "Fix You"
  10. Boudewijn de Groot - "Avond"

Listening to some Depeche Mode: "Question of Lust", then "Photographic"

Martin Gore should do lead vocals more often, he has a very nice soothing voice.

In Flanders it's traditionally "Bohemian Rhapsody" too topping this list on the most popular radio station. Generally "Summer of 69" by Bryan Adams is the nr 2, although it could be that in some years' editions there's been a different runner-up. I haven't listened to every year's edition. But very often Bryan Adams was runner-up, always behind "Bohemian Rhapsody".

Studio Brussel, a radio station focussing more on alternative music, generally has a different chart. If I recall well, but I'm unsure by heart, Dutch language song "Mia" by Gorki (sometimes spelled Gorky) was the nr 1 in some editions.

Probably the Walloon radio stations have a similar program with an all-time chart voted by listeners. I would assume at least...

now Sisters of Mercy - "Temple of Love"

Am I mistaken or is this song about a cult? :confused:

I just put on my Donovan record :) (Universal Soldier)

Current song: Universal Soldier

Joe Cocker - Something & With a little help from my friends
 
Unrivalled performance of two Beatle songs in the Mad Dogs & Englishmen tour (1970-1971).
Of course: Joe Cocker. RIP 2014.
Also worth mentioning:
Leon Russell (guitar, died in 2016).
Chris Stainton (organ).
Rita Coolidge and Claudia Lennear (background vocals).
And a lot more. What a party. :cool:

Anyone still remembers her?

Of course.

That's true. Her voice, her singing, the strange interaction between the lyrics and the music, and the strange lyrics themselves.

I don't think anyone thinks of it as Mike Oldfield's song.

Bunch of late 60s - early 70s songs. (My brain congealed about 1972.)

Cowgirl in the Sand - probably Neil Young
Celine Dion doing a cover of Here, There and Everywhere.
Spanky and Our Gang

Thank you so much
 
Just before I was repeatedly playing "Ti sento" by Matia Bazar. Lovely, summer-like euphoric Italian dance music
