Not really sure of the general age of most people on here but I assume that most of you might recognize the following two clips.
My music tastes span across most fields (except rap) and while mucking around on youtube i found this first clip that led me into the second clip.
Now the second clip most people say wtf however I have always liked her music (and thought she was hot at my age at the time).

Was a bit of a flashback really and led me to look around at alot of the old music that I used to listen to , so many amazing memories and some hazy memories as well.

What does a trip down memory lane hold for you in lost music you no longer listen to.

Wuthering Heights is a classic, thought the videos are a tad eccentric :)

My reply to Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep would be How Do You Do :)

i found all the old The Sweet songs a few weeks ago , they were my favourite band in the 70's when  i was 10 or so, man im old.  in 40 odd years though my musical tastes haven't changed much , i still only listen to rock or metal.

Common sense is not as common as you think.

I was a bit of a Mariah Carey fiend when I was 12-13.  Which is probably why I ended up smothering under a pile of death metal mix tapes for a good ten years to wash the Mariah off me.

Nothing wrong with a bit of Kate Bush.  I enjoyed her duet with Rowan Atkinson for Comic Relief in 1986 where they contemplate if bears do .......?

The universe consists of protons, neutrons, electrons...and morons.

Yup some good memories there guys.

This was the turning point for me and I have ever since been a die hard fan although I will always prefer the Bon Scott days.

dafman: Kate Bush and Peter Gabriel, Don't Give Up ... now that's memory lane for me!

Willy Nelson and Sinead O'Connor did an awesome version of that song too.

As a teenager, my first concert was Judas Priest at the Hammersmith Odeon, where I also saw Whitesnake & Deep Purple. Also ZZ Top, Black Sabbath and Def Leppard. I was the first person in school to own Script For A Jester's Tear by Marillion, an album I still have but which I listen to very rarely. I no longer have enough angst to appreciate it I think!

Kicking around in the car is Come And Get It by Whitesnake, an album which I know pretty much all the words to; in this PC age, I am amazed it isn't a thought crime to play it! My tapes were all heavy metal or AOR like Foreigner, Boston etc when I was a teen. My poor parents must have wondered what on earth had gone wrong at school every time I came home at the end of term!

I was a teenager in the early to mid 80's and at the time, detested all the stuff that was around at the time like Spandau Ballet, Petshop Boys, Human League, Duran Duran etc etc. Now, I find myself getting all nostalgic (and I am an incurable nostalgic anyway) every time I hear it. 

I've found as I have got older that I do not much like noisy music so mostly I just stream chill out or various types of jazz, but just occasionally I get the 80's radio streaming or hit the rock albums.

Streaming is good for me, as I find very few albums I like listening to regularly.
