    That's Trevor Horn's production nous at it's very finest. Once you've been in Yes it never leaves you.
    In fact, here it is in all it's glory:



    1980's pop sophistication of the highest order.

    This is the Debbie Gibson I should have posted earlier. This is a MTV clip about her working with the Circle Jerks containing footage of them preforming and her stage diving!

    "Do You Really Want To Hurt Me" came on while I was driving the other day. Listening to it with adult ears, it is amazing how great of a song it is. Completely holds up now. Could have came out just the other day.

    I admit I have a weakness for the music of the Carpenters, the siblings who, during the 1970s, recorded the most whitebread pop ever committed to record.

    WHAT? The Carpenters are no longer hip? No longer groovy? No longer swingin'? What dark, perverted future are we living in?

    Besides, when it comes to liking things that are not hip (I don't think it's really hip to say hip anymore) nothing beats this

    This one may be a little bit more controversial...Motley Crue "Too Young to Fall in Love". OK, so their album Shout At The Devil was extremely popular back in the early 80's but the band was also the target of a lot for venom from a variety of sources. Many people thought they symbolized what was wrong with mainstream hard rock/hair metal being a gimmicky no talent band known more for their partying and "bad boy" image than their songs. And at the time I agreed with much of the criticism. And even as a teenager I could see the hypocrisy of the "damaged goods"/slut shaming at the end of this video when at the time part of the Crue's imagine was that they've have sex with any girl on two legs.



    However, the song has a cool drum beat, a catchy riff, and despite the dumb even to a teenager lyrics...an earworm chorus.

    Perfect song for what it's trying to be...a slick well polished yet uplifting pop song.

    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    Basically if you give me two Gin and Tonics, I will likely do:

    Toxic - Britney Spears
    Never Tear Us Apart - INXS
    Lately - Steve Wonder

    Three G&Ts:

    Dammit - Blink 182
    Possum Kingdom - Toadies
    Nothing Compares 2 U - Sinead O'Connor version

    "One of those nights":

    Mack The Knife - Sinatra Style
    Interstate Love Song - STP
    Heaven Is A Place On Earth - Belinda Carlisle
    Toxin is an awesome song, and one of the few that has crossed into genres that otherwise would be hostile to Britney's music, as there are heavy metal covers of it. STP is a favorite band of mine, though they kind of lost me after their third album. That Belinda Carlisle song is a favorite of mine as well.

    Early Christina Aguilera was great. This song should have been a single imo:

    Basically, generic rock riffs and non-subtle lyrics dressed up to be profound. Savin' Me, How You Remind Me, and Someday are favorites of mine, though.

    That video is pretty cringy, but Crue knew how to churn out catchy tunes. Have you checked out Vince Neil's first solo album? I would argue that it's one of the greatest hair metal records of all time.
    "I should describe my known nature as tripartite, my interests consisting of three parallel and disassociated groups; a) love of the strange and the fantastic, b) love of abstract truth and scientific logic, c) love of the ancient and the permanent. Sundry combinations of these strains will probably account for my...odd tastes, and eccentricities."

    Me and Ms. Osmond from March 1982 when she came to Philly for a charity event. Ahhh, such a wonderful moment for me since I had a huge crush on her at the time!

    You're both gorgeous!

    Even if I was around ten years old at the time I wish I could have such a photography of me and Viktor Lazlo in 1984!

    I am sorry. I will have to go and post that. Its the thread.

    I had forgotten that this song has received hate. I liked it a lot earlier. Nowadays i will say i like it. Not as fresh as i felt before.

    Another favorite.

    I shall stop posting Bond songs. They are all cool music. And far from unhip. I think.

    Don't you(Forget About Me).



    No there really shall be another music thread. These songs don't sound 'uncool' or 'unhip'. How to decide what is 'unhip' and 'uncool'? And i am not even embarrassed to begin with.
