lmfao...I find all the ones you names to be uh...somewhat boring. I respect the musicianship and all but I just personally can't really bring myself to listen.

hmm....are you sure your thinking of the right bands...i mean boring...now that statement is a little well kind of twisted...i mean

rap... usually doesnt include playing instruments and the beats are most of the time put together by machines...and some of the artists dont even write their own songs...now

all the artists/bands i mentioned play instruments and write their own music...hmm...yeah they are kind of boring i guess...:scratch:

*i forgot men at work...yes i knew i would remember:)*

First off...just because someone writes a song themselves doesn't mean that I can tolerate hearing it, lmao. That aside...

DAYUM

Any artist who doesn't write their own songs does not get my respect. Half the battle in hip hop is getting the damn song written in the first place. The rules are totally different from traditional songwriting and I can tell you from lots of experience that it's actually twice as hard. Not only are there dozens of technical elements to a rap song that the average listener doesn't stop to consider but there are as many syllables in a single verse in rap as there are in an entire song from most any other genre. As far as I'm concerned, I don't give a shit if they play an instument or not because I know how hard this shit is. Once you get past the song writing there's the challenge of learning to actually rap...and no, it's not just talking fast. Just as in singing you gotta be on key and be able to execute a melody. That said, most artists do know how to play an instument or two...or five. They have to in order to write their songs. Personally you'll never see me pick up an instrument in a live show but that doesn't change the fact that I know how to play five instruments quite well and three others at a more basic level.

ahem....i think i'm done for now but I could go into the technical songwriting stuff I was talking about for about another 3 pages worth.

An element of rap that a lot of people don't consider is freestyling...not only do you have to include all those elements and make the story you're telling still make sense and touch people but you gotta do it live, off the top of your head, and with no prior knowledge of the music that will accompany you. A person has to be able to get in front of people and make a song up on the spot. If you're battling you gotta reply to the person that went before you too so it's truly off the top cuz you have no idea going in of what they might say about you.

sorry bout jumping on you but rap gets so little respect sometimes and it's a shame cuz there are some true artists out there

ive always thought rap gets to much respect maybe because its the artists like 50cent, Big Tymers, etc. that get so much attention for nothing but their is some good hip-hop like outkast they are awesome..and some of eminems stuff is okay...it just depends...and dont worry i jump on people when they say coldplay is crap or someone that i truly like is bad...expecially when they have no clue what they are talking about because they havent even tried to listen to it:(...but not everyone is like that..and i am NOT like that...

I agree about 50 Cent...i love the beats in his music and 21 Questions is a sweet song but he's generally over-rated. He's hyped up to be the next Tupac and he's not...not by a long shot. The only similarity is that they both write their lives but that's where it ends.

Coldplay isn't crap...they're just not my thing, lol

Boy George & The Bangles :) oh-eh-oh
I was born in '82 and oblivious to the fact that BG was actually a MAN! :rolleyes: silly me. I think I'll have to pick David Bowie too, though I only discovered his 80's hits many years later (after obsessing over "Labyrinth").

:lol: I didn't even know! On the news today they keep talking about how its Australia vs Greece in 4 events (like hockey, water polo etc...)

I'll cheer for Sweden. We have enough medals for the moment. Sweden will start to catch up when that Kluft/Kleft woman... the decathlon chick.... begins :) BUT, it is nice to see more attention going to our womens soccer team than our mens at the moment :haha: I havent been paying a lot of attention to the Olympics. I've been watching indoor volleyball *Go Russia!*, canoe slalom (SO impressed) and ...table tennis ;) as well as a little gymnastics.

I'm hanging out for some tennis :rolleyes:

Aphex
08-20-2004, 08:56 AM
Yes have there been any spectators at all at the tennis? I only saw some of Moya vs. Enqvist and the only people there were the coaches and Björkman's(!) wife, dad and mum. I think Eurosport will show the SF's and the F. What do you think about that Molik girl by the way. She was pretty superiour in Stockholm last week and she's still going strong. I like her game.
Canoe slalom, eh? Biiig time :lol:
"Indoor" volleyball? Go Cuba girls ;)

Not too sure what to make of Alicia Molik. There was an article in this months Australian Tennis Magazine about us losing the Fed Cup to Thailand, and Molik opting 'not to play'. I don't remember if I've seen her play or not (I didnt realise women played tennis ;) )

With canoe slalom (I may have the name wrong!) I was first impressed with this...

Yeah, funny version. But I never cared much for Laibach and that whole artistic movement they belonged to, NSK.

Haha, the joke songs were the greatest. :lol:

Is it Lamahl? You know, the Neverending Story song? I dunno if there were any more songs, but I loved that song! And my Xanadu soundtrack (or was that the 70's!?).

Yes, the Neverending Story, actually I remember the other track he had with that band with the silly name Kajagoogoo "Too Shy", that was a typical 80s track.

Speaking of 80s, I am listening to Frankie Goes to Hollywood at the moment.

I don't remember that song, just remember Kajagoogoo and that song "too shy shy", or something like that. In that era, you couldn't get by without seeing his hairdo all over Bravo (and other magazines) every day. Funny times! :lol:

I got him back, he never liked the Pogues, so there is an Austrian version of the Pogues, a punk/folk hybrid and I made him listen to Attwenger and that got him agitated, then again the beer is cheaper in Austria, so that shut him up for a while.

Ouch! What a change of direction from Dead bees on a cake then. The rhythms on that album were intoxicating. I might still like it though, so I'll give it a shot. A year is a looooong time to get into an album. It's probably time to give up. ;)

I haven't tried SoulSeek yet, no. I usually use Kazaa Light, but for some artists I really want to have the originals, because the sound quality is so much better. I'll get back to you once I get my hands on that album. :)

High school revisited (what is even scarier is that I have all of the following on vinyl AND cd/mp3...)

Joy Division, Bauhaus (dated a guy only because he could play the intro to Silent Hedges on his 12-string,) early OMD (as in Architecture and Morality,) Killing Joke, Comsat Angels, Gang of Four, Ministry, KMFDM, Front 242, Depeche Mode (I still adore the Black Celebration CD!) old U2 (learning how to play the bass riff to Two Hearts Beat As One can be considered my greatest high school accomplishment, lol...) The Cure, Smiths, Echo, Bob Mould/HuskerDu...I could go on forever.

Oh, I can understand that. Music plays a big part in my life and I too associate memories with songs. For someone like Proust it's smell, but for me music works in the same way, it brings up feelings, memories, vague half-remembered thoughts. The treasure-trove of my life. But in the words of Badly Drawn Boy: "And songs are never quite the answer, Just a soundtrack to a life".

You see, Cocteau Twins invoke somewhat different feelings for me (there was this guy...). ;)

@ MissKoubek1981: Sandra is a great singer. I love her songs. :) By the way, she was born in Saarbrücken. :cool:

There is a Hansie Hölzl fan on this board and yes I used to have Der Kommissar as the theme on my answering machine.

Falco was über popular in Slovenia at the time. I found that song Jeannie very disturbing.

Falco was über cool in his time, singing/talking in the Viennese dialect mixed in with English definitely had it's moments. Jeannie was a great track, though Vienna Calling was a bit silly, though not as bad as Rock Me Amadeus.

A Ha (one hit wonder!)


That's not true :p

Is it Lamahl? You know, the Neverending Story song? I dunno if there were any more songs, but I loved that song! And my Xanadu soundtrack (or was that the 70's!?).

It's Limahl :)

I was a teenager in the 80's and most of the music is still among my favourites now :)

A-ha


I never knew you liked a-ha, Rosie :)


A-ha is still around I think.


Yes, indeed, but unfortunately they are going to split up at the end of this year :sad:

A-ha ( so many girls at the concerts)

:lol: and so much screaming, right? Well, within the years the amount of male visitors at the a-ha concerts increased. It wasn't a "shame" anymore to be a fan of them when you are a guy and the other male visitors were friends/husbands of the women who went to the concerts ;)

A-Ha

a-ha and Federer fan, that's a nice combination :yeah:


The 80ies are my favourite musical decade and I still like to listen to the stuff from this time.

My favourite artists/bands

a-ha
Alphaville
Bon Jovi
Bryan Adams
Camouflage
Depeche Mode
Jason Donovan (please keep in mind that I was in my teens during the 80ies :p )
INXS
Nena
REM
Roxette
The Cure
U2

I'm pretty sure I have forgotten someone, but maybe I can update my list in 6 years when I'm going to bump this thread :D
