When you said Toto, that made sense, but I had to Google Spandau Ballet, as I didn't remember them until this, and then the light went on in my head :) :) You're absolutely right, regarding them and their sound and the song, Sarah.


I am a big Spandau Ballet fan now, but did not like them at all back in the 80's. I thought their GQ look was kind of a joke and did not care for that style of music at the time. I was much more into hard rock and some metal back then. I listen to Spandau a lot now though.

I think that's why I forgot about them for the same reasons. For me, if it wasn't Led Zeppelin, Yes, The Eagles, etc I had a hard time with the "bubble gum" music. But now, I do appreciate the mellower sounds. I tend to like a lot of the female voices and pop jazz, not the kind that who knows where it's going, and they try to play every note in music in one song, type of jazz.

I am not much into jazz but I do like some blues-rock. I like Joe Bonamassa a lot, Gary Moore, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Stevie Ray Vaughan were/are all very good. I grew up in Georgia listening to Southern Rock, 70's and 80's hard rock, still listen to 70's and 80's hard rock but the older I get the more I appreciate the bands that made the 80's what they were. I like some modern progressive rock. Riverside is very good. My favorite band is and always will be Rush. The right words to describe Rush's influence on my life just do not exist.

It was the last song in his multi-song post, that may have been why it was taken down, typically posting more than two songs is frowned upon, Johnny Quest was also a new member at that point, could have been a duplicate although I doubt that would matter, just thinking out loud. Moderating is a tricky business, they do mean well. With that I recommend reflecting on simpler times, this for example 😶‍🌫️
It's always recommended, extra in this specific thread to catch up on the actual thread rules that is still available in post number 1. Try also to use spoilers as that automatic helps, and when we ( the staff ) also notice for example: dead, private, age restricted or enforced logins or not in general follow the rest of this forums rules, those gets cleaned out. Plain basic moderation. :coffee:

I never did get to the first page..yet, as there's so much good stuff on this thread to cover. Thank you for that kind reminder, especially for me, as at times I could tend to get carried away ;) :)

To those of you who spoke earlier of Linda Ronstadt, I agree, she was a rare talent, her pop hits left no doubt of it, but I feel her real contribution was her treatment of the standards, she seemed to have a love of them that was expressed in her performances like few others, I'll post a couple examples, hear them out and I think you may see another side of this multi-talented Artist.



@Jonny Quest , Keep posting please 🤗

@BryanB to follow up on your thoughts on Linda, I couldn't agree with you more. About 6 months ago I watched a special about her on one of the Roku channels and was amazed by her talent in all areas. She could do and sing it all, including her Spanish albums which they said were also very popular.

I've always liked this one from the first time I heard it.
