    Danno - Look up Moxie Fruvous - they were a Canadian a capella group in the 90's but toured the festival circuit in the states - this group reminds me of them :)

    Speaking of a capella, this is an amazing performance. Instruments, rain and thunder are done by voice and body. I like the original tune by Toto, but this is my favorite. Turn up the volume!

    Hmmm?
    Maybe try playing this a few times while you're sitting around with your beer drinking buddies.
    Let us know how that goes over? ;)

    y'all so funny, my band plays almost every one of those 80's songs....we also do the Wreck, but we use the Gilligans Island theme lyrics to go with Gordon's guitar chord progression...is funny. We're like Vanilla Fudge but better looking (maybe not as talented). I been on a Dire Straits kick lately...one of the coolest videos all time...Money for Nothing, maybe tied with Touch of Grey.

    call me crazy but I've been on a movie soundtrack kick lately.....not sure it qualifies for the music here, but my wife laughs at me for listening to it....it helps me relax and get all that chit off of my mind....

    There are some damm good soundtracks out there, by some great modern composers (John Williams, Trevor Jones, James Horner, Michael Kamen, etc). They seem to flawlessly capture the spirit of the movie, all in a short music clip.

    Movies like The Patriot, Open Range, Conan The Barbarian, Braveheart, and one of my favorites, The Last of The Mohicans.......all great soundtracks....

    Hey, I may be a tough guy on the outside, but I have a broad range of musical tastes. Rap is NOT one of them.......

    When the big car stereo craze starting rolling in the mid 80's (when you actually had to build systems), I demoed to Madonna - Vogue and Joe Satriani - Surfing with the Aliens. Turn up Satriani and rip the knob off.:cool:
    (I could render all mirrors useless and bounce a quarter heads to tails on the trunk lid. 17 speakers (surround sound) 3 amps, all electronic preset crossovers and digital sound processing)



    Edit: Vogue is the one I got made fun of.

    Fat Bottom Girls by Queen (yup, I'm a fat bottom gal) but in love mowing the lawn & singing my heart out to this w my iPod. I love old 80's, redneck country & southern rock. Neighbors tease me about sing & dancing on my mower but hey, 2.5 acres of grass I have to find a way to pass the time.

    Ah, good ol' TP. I don't remember the song but I remember watching "Friday Nite Videos" and there was a video with an Alice In Wonderland theme. We were, let's say, experimenting recreationally, and there was a part where she was a cake, that was REALLY freaky in my state of mind at that moment, stuck with me all these years! Mind bent still over that one ;)

    I saw Tom Petty and the Heart Breakers in concert at the Ononondaga War Memorial in Syracuse, NY many years ago. He had a huge old tree in the center of the stage toward the back. There was a lift in the tree so that when he went in the bottom he could come out the top! When they did "Don't Come Around Here No More" there was the bad guy following them or chasing them around until it got to a certain point and then they were chasing him around until they ran him off. Just an awesome show;ex

    I can't think of any, but I'll say that I'm a sucker for all that emotional Bob Mould stuff. I guess that he came across as a DB in his autobiography, but the man is a super influential genius

    Kindred spirits here. I stumbled across Sugar in college, instant love. Bob Mould IMHO is one of the most UNDER RATED singer/song writers as far as influence. We saw him locally here last year at a small venue, he met all of us afterwards. It wasn't the same as meeting Ian Anderson when he signed my flute but it was up there.
