Pop Masterclass

Discussion in 'Charts, rates etc' started by stuaw, Jan 27, 2013.

  1. This forum certainly keeps me on my toes, someone who's driving me mad in one threads turns out to be flawless in another !!
     
  2. I think I would most appreciate discovering an older artist with one amazing song, so that I could fully delve into their discography. I'd resent it for several months because I didn't get immediate satisfaction, but over time it would prove incredibly fruitful. I've been meaning to listen through Bob Dylan's discography for a good two years because of the flawlessness of 'Don't Think Twice It's Alright', but it's so vast that it's really intimidating. Same with Bruce Springsteen and U2.
     
  3. Come on Kiefer.............

    You only have to ask and I'll point you in the right direction.
     

  4. Just start with a Greatest Hits. I buy a knew 'Best of' every week I should think. Some I love, some I never play again.

    Amazon Used and New is your friend.
     
  5. And if you like things a little more racy

  6. This is true. I suppose I should listen to more music in general, but I always tend to just throw myself entirely into one artist. The summer will actually lend itself perfectly to this, though I may try Dylan soon.
     
  7. That's one place I will never venture. HA!!!
     
  8. If you do happen to make a playlist, please share it with us!

    I can't help but feel this thread has derailed somewhat! If we're talking older music, some of my all-time favourite songs are Midnight Train to Georgia, My Boy Lollipop and Piece of My Heart by Janis Joplin (the definitive version of that track for me)! But defending on your definition, that'd be straying a bit away from "pop".

    Surely one of the best songs to come out of disco.
     
  11. I just went to the gym to run 5k. About 3k in a wasn't feeling good at all and had started to contemplate giving up when this came on my iPod. I finished with no trouble.

    Pure pop perfection and I can't believe it hasn't already been mentioned.

  12. "On The Bible" was my favourite Deuce song at the time by far but in my recent compilation making I went with their debut "Call It Love" perhaps it sounded more of the time (or more likely I chose it because it is half a minute shorter).

  14. I actually did this for a girl I work with who was like "all pop is crap!" I can't remember what went on the CD, but she warmed up to it a bit thereafter.
     
  15. Pop perfection 80's fashion

    I quite like the fact people are now choosing individual songs rather than lists of songs. It makes it easier for people to check out the tracks if they so wish!
     
  16. Surely 'Poison Arrow' is their Pop Masterclass.
     
  17. Well 'The look of love' was there biggest hit I believe and 'Poison Arrow' was there first big hit. Personally I just feel 'All Of My Heart ' was there best single and is the song most overlooked out of the 3. All three are classic's but 'All of my Heart is my personal favorite and that's why I have suggested it plus it got higher in the charts than 'Poison Arrow'.....( or at least i thought, correct me if I'm wrong).
     
  18. I've fatally gone off Poison Arrow. I literally can't listen to it. But put on Slave To The Rhythm and I'm happy - I can listen to it over and over again without any sense of dismay.
     
  19. You can't beat a bit of Darren Hayes
