    Madonna: The Discography Rate - COMPLETE

    Totally random Madonna thought, but I am on a cancer patients’ chat group and today they were talking about dancing as a form of exercise and expression of joy to get through cancer. Then they started sharing cha cha songs to each other. I so badly wanted to post Madonna’s Medellin but I knew...

    Ultimate MovieJustice | Winner

    Love your rates, @DJHazey On my list, I have one movie representing the slasher horror genre (but it is a so bad it’s good pick). At least one movie each representing the works of: Baz Luhrmann Ang Lee David Lynch Quentin Tarantino James Cameron Paul Thomas Anderson Kenneth Branagh Pop...

    Women of the 80s Rate (Done) - Discussing Women of the 90s

    Apologies for what might be a double post, I think I am in a different time zone compared to many of you. I have very high regard for the Pointer Sisters. They had to overcome two stumbling blocks – being a female African American artist and ageism – in order to enjoy the mainstream commercial...

    Women of the 80s Rate (Done) - Discussing Women of the 90s

    A quick write up on some recently eliminated artists which I was one of the champions for. Laura Branigan is a textbook cautionary tale that new artists starting their careers need to take more control of their career sooner rather than later. I think Laura basically let her managers...

    Women of the 80s Rate (Done) - Discussing Women of the 90s

    Cyndi Lauper reminds me of two things. Firstly, that once in a while, the underdog misfit outcast can win the day. Second, that if you keep on working hard, your legacy will continue to grow. Cyndi has been a genuine LGBT ally for decades. Her True Colors Fund, which aims to provide shelter for...

    Women of the 80s Rate (Done) - Discussing Women of the 90s

    The Footloose movie soundtrack is one of my all time favourites. An all killer no filler affair, which is rare for a multiple artist movie soundtrack. I’m sure Heart fans know Ann Wilson has a track, Almost Paradise, on the soundtrack album.

    Women of the 80s Rate (Done) - Discussing Women of the 90s

    Magic and Suddenly from the Xanadu soundtrack are some of my all time favourite songs. When I first saw the poster and trailer for the movie Xanadu, I knew I had to watch the movie. Zeus’ daughters roller skating around San Diego (?). The low budget special effects weird coloured glow which...

    Women of the 80s Rate (Done) - Discussing Women of the 90s

    During their commercial heyday in 1987 to 1989, I was a bigger Debbie fan than of Tiffany. But now I still regularly listen to Tiffany but less Debbie. Tiffany’s vocal and songwriting artistry has improved much more over the years. I had a chance to watch them both in concert in 2018 and...

    Madonna: The Discography Rate - COMPLETE

    I see lots of unreasonable slander for MDNA and would say this in its defence. Can anyone think of a better post divorce album where the artist actually commented on and provided meaningful insight on what the artist was going through during and the aftermath of the divorce? I think one of...

    This Delicate Rate We've Made: The Darren Hayes / Savage Garden Rate - WINNER announced

    Apologies, folks, if a few of my scores may have been much lower than the average. But I am more of a Darren solo fan than a Savage Garden fan, and he lost me at Affirmation (the album). I really only got back on board with The Tension and The Spark. I dislike it when Darren gets preachy in...

    This Delicate Rate We've Made: The Darren Hayes / Savage Garden Rate - WINNER announced

    Have been catching up and I have enjoyed reading all your posts. To contribute, my biggest loss so far is Sense Of Humour. If I had a low self esteem mood playlist, it would be on top of that list. I was the most casual of Savage Garden / Darren fans, so much so that my first copy of Tension...

    @Ray the three parts of the rate were a great labour of love on your part and I hope you enjoyed working on them as much as we all enjoyed experiencing them. @Future Lover thanks for your work here especially in maintaining the suspense. I think we are all fortunate to have had and still have...

    Ultimate Popstars 2019 - Winner!!!

    For me, Olivia Newton John was the Madonna of the mid 70s to early 80s. Some things Olivia invented: Successful and sustained crossover from country to pop. Reinvention. Pop star gay allyship. Pop star environmental causes championing. Pop star sex related controversy and getting banned on...

    Prince

    I had to go listen to The Beautiful Ones after reading that. I was there at that Melbourne concert mentioned in the article. It was a profoundly moving experience. But to send my anecdote crashing to the ground, because he was so upset that day, it was a very short concert. From memory, around...
