World Chat / Songs that give you the chills
« on: October 16, 2017, 11:21:13 AM »
The research that Uli just posted made me think about songs that stop you in your tracks whenever you hear them and give you the chills - in a good way (so no Sp*nd** B*ll*t gags please!).

Here's a couple of mine:

Oh dear!

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear!

I NEVER want to hear Tim, or anyone else, EVER criticise the "Cast of Thousands" cover ever, ever, ever again after viewing these, but I warn you, if you open this link you will NEVER be able to un-see the horrors within:

World Chat / Glam Rock Night this Friday on BBC 4
« on: September 13, 2017, 09:22:38 PM »
9 PM:

Marc Bolan: Cosmic Dancer - This intimate biography, narrated in Marc Bolan's own words, marks the 70th anniversary of his birth and the 40th of his death. The film traces Bolan's remarkable journey from Hackney's own 'king of the mods' to Tyrannosaurus Rex, as he evolved into the artist known as 'the hippie with a knife up his sleeve'.

With the dawn of the '70s and the breakup of The Beatles, Bolan became the gender-bending glam rocker whose band T. Rex revitalised the British music scene. But director Jeremy Marre - incorporating unseen movies shot by record producer Tony Visconti and Marc Bolan himself - reveals a far more complex and driven figure whose life was tragically cut short, aged 29.

Featuring those who were closest to Marc, his friends, colleagues, family, partner Gloria Jones and producer Tony Visconti.

Glam Rock at the BBC

A spangly celebration of the outburst of far-out pop and fuzz-filled rock that lit up the British charts in the early 1970s. Top of the Pops is our primary arena and its gloriously gaudy visual effects are used here aplenty! The compilation also utilises footage from a selection of BBC concerts as well as from Crackerjack and Cilla. It features classic BBC TV performances from T. Rex, David Bowie, Roxy Music, Alice Cooper, Suzi Quatro, Slade, The Sweet, Elton John, Queen, Sparks and many more.

Then there's some old tosh about Elton John, Rod Stewart...

Might be interesting, but I hope this is a typo!

There’s the time he knobbed Enoch Powell’s attempt to get stem cell researched banned by moving a byelection writ thus enabling MPs to talk it out.

Great when they started, quickly became far too mainstream for me:

As a little aside, it was only when my first band (briefly!) gained a keyboard player and we covered "Electricity" that I discovered that there was such a thing as a minor chord!
