    lol Rihanna was pretty there, since she has those tattoos she looks kinda trashy.

    From these pop/r&b singers my fav is Demi Lovato



    Her song in the Mortal Instruments movie rocked hard!

    OMD, very popular Liverpool based band who often fly under the radar when talking UK 80s music.

    Love this tune.

    Yeah, they had some good tunes out, got a bit "poppy" later on and one of the two founders left as he thought they got too commercial. The other guy (the lead singer Andy McCluskey) carried on for a bit on his own and then went on to produce and manage girl bands like Atomic Kitten later on.

    The La's... Liverpool band of the late 80s, ealry 90s. Loved this particular tune. Once they hit commercial success, lead singer Lee Mavers spiralled into heroin addiction and they were no more. Bass guitarist John Power set up a band called Cast, who churned out some pretty good tunes later.

    I'm keeping an eye on this band, not that I particularly like any of the tunes as yet, but they've got potential and are good musicians and decent singers. The guitarist with the T-shirt under the long sleeved shirt was my eldest sons best mate in Liverpool before we moved to Oz. A lad called Tom Shields. They're managed by Mick Jones (from the Clash) and have supported The Who, Blur and Paul Weller, already in their young careers.

    ^i love "There She Goes"

    You mentioned Blur, Song 2 is very groovy.......

    My fav Liverpool band is Carcass easily, especially their early material, which is dark and heavy and has the ancient power of Morbid Angel, like Reek of Putrefaction, and ofc all death metal fans know songs like Carneous Cacoffiny, and here's a short masterpiece every death metal fan recognizes at once even when woken up from his/her deepest sleep:

    Cool. I'm not into death metal but know of the band. Pretty amazing the influence of Liverpool (and Manchester) on music over the years. Cities punching way above their weight.

    Did you like any of Paul Weller's stuff? Solo, or The Jam, or the Style Council? I was a massive Jam fan when I was a kid. He was like, the last of the mods in the UK. "The modfather."





    You'll have to forward the second one a bit.

    Always liked Belinda Carlise, had a bit of a crush one upon a time, but not seen that much from the Go-gos era. I like it, will check out some more.

    I used to like Debbie Harry/Blondie stuff too. They did one of those retro tours down under recently. Cyndi Lauper was playing the same gig. Reports back from a couple of mates who went, were that Debbie's voice is shot... but Cyndi was superb.

    They have many good songs, my favourites are Worlds Away and Fading Fast....... Fading Fast is a simple but very very powerful song, at last someone put the demo performed by Charlotte Caffey on youtube which is better than the studio version, i had this too on CD but don't know where.... Charlotte Caffey is a very great and deep artist!!!! she was a massive heroin addict... It's a very dreamy and dark song....



    And here's my other fav, Worlds Away..... This one was written by Jane Wiedlin:



    They have much more complex songs which are similarly good like Forget That Day.....

    Love Blondie and Cyndi too


    lol an interesting fact about the Go-go's: the band started off for real after a British tour with Madness... haha they said after that tour they went home to LA like beaten kitties cause they weren't used to the punk audience (their early music was more raw punk than pop) who were throwing even beer bottles at them, Belinda said there was even spittle hanging from her :lulz1::laugh::lol3:

    This is the old school black metal i used to be into....The subgenre is not symphonic, obscure or whatever but actually the band members called it "narcotic black metal" Dreamy, spooky stuff, especially the ending part with the ghostly female vocals.....

    Haha this music is about meditation and introversion, no technical stuff here.... lol drumming is cute, have to wait minutes for the snare to kick in :lulz1: Enjoy :skull::bat:

    Their second single from Glory days came out in January - Touch:



    And a couple of their acoustic performances - here Love on the brain cover:



    And here from the Live Lounge on the BBC a Whitney Houston cover with a choir:



    And yes they can all sing
