Damn - I'm getting all nostalgic  Some Aussie garage punk from the old days, the drummer was a particularly dear friend of ours. RIP.

 

It's possible that this might not have been a "hit", but hey - it's got over 2,000 views on youtube.

Coil:

 

Hey all,

 

I am fan of older music ............ Bowie, 
I like all their hit tracks but given the large size of their discographies I find it hard to find new tracks I like without trawling through hours of songs.

 

 

I loved Bowies music, especially his non commercial stuff.

 

Perhaps Bowies best remake in conjunction with Mike Garson .......... Wild is the Wind?

 

 

Or the brilliant Mike Garson's rearrangement of Bowie's My Death (featuring David Bowie)?

That would be one of my all time favourite albums along with Tracy Chapmans. I would struggle to pick a favourite, but maybe TOL or RAJ.

 

I'd pay most anything to see them live.

Continuing with the female singer thing I didn't start on purpose.

 

20 year old Joni Mitchell.

 

 

I don't mind her when she was older, but the high notes in this are excruciating to me. Both sides Now was much nicer.

One of the best things to come out of Australia, in my opinion. I'm always tickled at how clearly no one expected what unfolded to happen.

Love me a bit of Free. "All Right Now" was the big hit from this album, but this track is my favourite:

From time to time I have to confess I hear an ABBA song and it makes me want to hear more.

 

It was never 'cool' to be a (male) teenager in the late 70s and like ABBA - But as an adult I can happily admit their songs are pop perfection.

 

I find this one (one of their last) seems quite haunting (and the video):

 

 

Oddly - while ABBA was not 'cool' and gradually suffered a little from that, there was an english group called Blancmange that covered that same song (and they were regarded as new and cool) and did much better in the charts. Their remake is pretty similar but not nearly as good. Love how they included clips of the beautiful Agnetha Fältskog from the original ABBA video in their remake.

 

 

This one from The Smiths needs to be played full volume with the lights out - Its EPIC

Another TISM fan, wow !! This is Serious !! Mum.

 

Saw them live in Sydney, together with Regurgitator. One of my more memorable gigs I have attended.

 

Have all TISM's albums. Took a while to track them down. Quite a bit of rock poetry there - Living next door to the Milat's, Ballad of the Roadie, etc

 

The Angels have gotta be my fave good 'ol rock band. Especially their Liveline album. Have seen them live  - awesome,

 

I also do listen to a bit of classical with the same level of aural intensity - who cant be moved with a bit of Wagner's Flight of the Valkyries, or Grieg's Hall of the Mountain King.

 

Then again, I have also found Psychedelic trance type genre to be engaging - 1200 Micrograms, Raja Ram.

 

Kinda diverse ear candy.

If you're after music discovery, I'd recommend getting yourself a Spotify account and listening via that. Every week it'll generate a "Discover Weekly" playlist curated based on your listening history. I find it is excellent for matching the type of music I listen to (prog metal/prog rock), and reckon it'd probably work well for you too. 

But to answer your question more directly, here is a Time Capsule playlist it generated for me. Lots of old school classics on there.

I've been listening to a lot of nostalgic 90's al-rock.

 

 

 

I have a favourite "station" on I Heart Radio that I listen to a lot at the moment - Smells Like the 90's.

 

Lots of Grunge, Alt-Rock and general drudgery from that Seattle-led era that I love. What a trip down memory lane it is...
