    I was always more of a fan of Rick Astly's "Together Forever" than "Never Gonna Give You Up".

    Went to see Bryan Adams a few years ago on his Bare Bones tour. If you're a fan and get a chance to go, GO! One of the best concerts I've ever been to. He was playing only acoustic guitar, and had a pianist for some of the songs, but that doesn't mean everything was stripped down and slow. He kept the same tempo as the songs were originally recorded, played for two hours without a break, and was absolutely fantastic.

    Gotta give a slight plug for David Cook's rocking version of "I Just Died In Your Arms", which for me far surpasses the original.
    Give me one more quiet night, before this loud morning gets it right, and does me in.

    Reading through this thread reminds me that we shouldn't be so quick to judge succeeding generations taste in music.
    To think that fun is simple fun, while earnest things are earnest, proves all too plain that neither one thou truthfully discernest.

    Of course we should. Our music was much better.

    I was a metal/hard rock girl in the 80s. Def Leppard (duh), Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, the Michael Schenker Group and the Scorpions (saw them last year, still amazing live) were my favorites. But I also liked Accept - the music was amazing, but I could only listen to about three songs at a time due to the screamy lead singer. They were ahead of their time (so many of my students are into Screamo now - same thing: great music, lead singer screaming).

    Jealous! I had a metal streak too along with loving the new wave, and always loved the Scorpions... just the best live band. I recently through a phase of revisiting some of the 70s work through --> Blackout a couple months ago. Burn the Sky... just an amazing song...

    And does anyone know what his connection is...to which supergroup from the 70's and 80's?

    His brother Dougie was the bass player for Supertramp. (And a highly underrated bass played IMHO.)

    There was definite crap in the 80s, but w/ less technology and fewer media outlets, singers / performers had to compensate with, y'know, a little more talent and savvy to get recognized. Plus, it was easier to shock and titillate a less jaded public thru this new medium of MTV, so all things considered, I think there was more to hold your attention back then than now.

    Also, heavily electronic music was something new. It had its genesis in the 70s but went mainstream in the 80s. I don't know what to consider 'new' nowadays. So much sounds like warmed over crap. Maybe the good bands / singers are lost in the tons of media outlets that exist now.

    Well, technically this was released in 1992

    But, this is also proof that twerking was around 20 years prior.

    Here's a tune from 1989 that was the subject of an obscenity ruling all the way from SCOTUS. I don't think many songs have that distinction! BTW, NSFW -
