Re: Top 30 songs of 2021 - The #1's

2021, much like 2020, proved to be a year which pushed musical artists to innovate and experiment. With what felt at times like a marathon of lockdowns stifling creativity as bands were unable to work in the same room as one another, bounce ideas off one another and collaborate on musical designs an...

Re: Top 30 Songs of 2021

Black Country, New Road is a name I've been seeing mentioned for a while, but I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've heard any of their stuff. That was quite nice and might inspire me to check out their album. Nothing else from the past few rounds is likely to stick with me. Not going to lie, ...

Re: Top 30 Songs of 2021

30. Shryke, Gary Oldman - I think I remember the promo for this record coming out at the beginning of last year, but never took the time to listen to the music. And you are right, it's good to see he still has something to offer despite the longevity of his career. Yet, it's not really something I w...

Re: Top 30 Songs of 2021

Hey guys, hope you are all well, and had a great Christmas and New year. Life is so busy at the moment, but I miss this place so when I get a chance to check in it is always a pleasure. Good to see so many familiar faces still going strong. I apologise for missing the start of the countdown, will tr...

Enemies of the State $3
Annette $4
Old $14
Don't Breathe 2 $10
Candyman $13
The Card Counter $5
Venom 2 $8

Stillwater $7
Reminiscence $10

Re: Top 50 of 2020 - The #1's

John, I'm not going to lie, when it became quite apparent that Sparks were going to fill your top ten slots, I was a little apprehensive and almost wanted to hit skip a couple of times when your selection came up on the countdown. However, I persevered and to be honest, it was nowhere near as bad as...

Re: Top 50 of 2020 - The #1's

Well it is nice to hear that even if my musical picks were not to everyone's tastes, at least I distracted you from them with some lyrical mumbo jumbo! I am glad to hear that at least some of my songs resonated, my tastes, as have been exposed here, are fairly limited in comparison to many of you, I...

Top 50 of 2020 - The #1's

Well, let me say this has been a truly refreshing countdown. In a year which dredged up so much anguish, not to mention the anger, frustration and disgust of political and social injustices around the world, this is quite remarkable and it is nice to know that even during such dark times filled with...

Re: Top 50 Songs of 2020 (10-2)

Round 2 Banks, Mothika - I get that this may be a stand out act for you this past year, but honestly, I don't really hear anything that could spark such passion for them. The production has some cool moments, but vocally is pretty dull. JohnErle, Sparks - This was a little more subtle than some of ...

Re: Top 50 Songs of 2020 (10-2)

Round 3 Banks, The Weeknd - Has this been played here before? I'm familiar with it and it's nice, very much embracing 80s synth pop to its fullest. JohnErle, Sparks - This was fun. The vocals don't grate and it is simple nut infectious. Enjoyed that. Leestu, Fuzz - I listened to the album a little ...

Round 4 Banks, Alicia Keys - Slick vocals, thats about it though. JohnErle, Sparks - Music was ok. Vocals way over the top. Leestu, Porridge Radio - Great song from a very good album. And the video is awesome on the scale of rock n roll videos. I mean, lighting a match with her damn guitar! Ron, Ki...

Re: Top 50 Songs of 2020 (10-2)

Leestu's video is for his last pick. And my comments seem to have caught some of my thoughts from something else I wrote at the end of last year on Facebook as I copied and pasted! That last sentence can probably be deleted!

Re: Top 50 Songs of 2020 (10-2)

Round 5 Banks, Dua Lipa - Think Screen had this a couple of weeks ago, not really a stand out of the songs listed thus far. Just pretty typical disco pop. JohnErle, Sparks - Mixes Eastern European polka styles with the usual Sparks theatrics. A little too much for me, almost feels like the theme so...

Re: Top 50 Songs of 2020 (10-2)

Round 6 Banks, Artful Dodger and Craig David - This was everywhere when I was younger. Not a fan of drum and bass or the lyrics, so hearing it so often was awful. Time hasn't really helped. JohnErle, Sparks - File this under the Sparks that I am well aware of. Far too theatrical for my tastes. Lees...
