Some great videos guys!!

 

Keano jan, REM we're a great band during that period, its a shame they fizzled out into mediocrity later that decade.

 

Pourya jan, was that nipple-slip video actually aired on regular television?!? Great set of hooters!

 

Love the Spandau Ballet clip Michellica, my personal fave of theirs has to be "Gold"....

 

 

Another great British band from the 80s, always was a great admirer of Mick Hucknells voice!! This is a personal fave of mine...

yes Pedram jan, at least we saw those nips on sky channel and music box which were both UK broadcasting channels!

 

being a "new romantic" I liked Spandau Ballet (I recall finding the name so romantic til I actually understood what it meant!looool), however they came always second best next to Duran Duran for me! :D They had a song called "Only When You Leave ..." or something which I really liked!

 

another band which marked the 80's with this song in the OST of a movie which marked the 80's! Simple Minds with their "Dont You Forget About Me"! :clap2:

 

again another video removed from youtube, so go here:

lol, it's a sad state of affairs when we have regressed in terms of sexual liberalism from decades ago. That sort of thing these days would cause uproar and an abundance of complaints with the tevevision watchdogs. Remember Janets inadvertant nipple slip at the superbowl hehe. I remember even in the nineties, artists were more risk taking, Sir Mix Alot and Snoop Dog pretty much played with full-on porn in their vids. These days we prob see more flesh and cleavage, but nothing more hehe.

 

Yea the Simple Minds song was great. Did they have any other hits?

 

The Aussie band Crowded House had a couple of big hits in the 80s and early nineties, my fave....

If I recall correctly they had a hit with Belfast child as well!

 

Yes I remember Crowded House and also these two international one hit wonders from down under! there are very few artists from Australia that last longer than one hit outside the continent! Kylie is one, INXS were huge before Hutchence's death, and then Savage Garden!

Yea, you're right, very few seem to hold on to international success for long. I think another exception was perhaps Silverchair. Great band in their own right.

 

Pourya jan, we're you ever into the massive cultural and music phenomenon that swept the UK in the 90's, "Brit-Pop"> Man it totally rejuvenated my love of music in the mid-90s. The obvious kings of the throne were Oasis, Blur and The Verve. There we're however many other bands that produced hits in that category...

Pedram jan, when the britpop came I was a student and this was the music that students listened to in Sweden! Exclusively even, back then! However being a guy with a liking for electronic music I never really cared much for the early wave! There were some songs by Oasis and Suede I liked but I simply hated Blur!loooool I found them, their appearance, their music and videos incredibly annoying!lol But the Verve and other similar acts which came around the millennium shift kinda developed the style to a darker which appealed to me more! There were many acts from Sweden that also got this down right! One of them was Eskobar who had this HIT with the lovely Heather Nova whom I had a crush in back in mid 90's! :D

 

 

also this band which I really loved the music of! It was rockier and catchier choruses!

 

one of recent successful Swedish bands is Mando Diao! Really love this 60's inspired song!

Wow, i was unaware of its impact outside the UK pourya jan. Those are some great songs! Great to here that you also were able to experience such a great musical movement. Remember these gems too?

 

 

 

Oasis were my favourite band from this era, by far. I never forget the summer this single was released after the monumental success of their previous album "Whats the Story...", i don't think i've ever anticipated a release so much.

 

 

 

By the way pourya jan, Sweden also had some great bands that i dug in the 90s (and still do now). Backyard Babies was one of them..

lol I recall those supergrass guys being so frickin ugly! :haha: think it was Ali G who said that The Monkeys were called the monkeys but these guys look like monkeys! :))

 

Yes I know Backyard Babies and have met Dregen several times in the pubs, but to be honest that music doesnt strike any chord with me! There was also Hellacopters which Dregen was a member of before BB and there are many such bands in Sweden! The Swedish rock festivals are filled with them! Listen to this cover on Umbrella which is kinda cool and became a hit here!

 

 

this is another band from my area

and this one

 

we also produce much of today's oldschool HM! this is a band from the area! This is more my Shoot that Backyard's music!

Yea, Backyard Babies went downhill after the "Making Enemies is Good" album (a great CD!!). now their music is just sleeze rock which gives me very little interest. I've seen them in concert and Dregen always comes across like a true old school rocker, what is he like in person?

 

There is a little known band from Sweden that i admire.

 

 

Their early stuff was very bland and boring, but TIAMATs "Prey" album is a masterpiece!! I strongly urge you to check it out if you havent already pourya jan. Dark rock, mixed with trip-hop and electronica with catchy songs. Unfortunately their other albums are very weak. A few years ago i was hooked on melodic metal, Swedens forte!! Bands such as Opeth, Siolwork and In Flames. Sweden always had such a vibrant rock scene. i was lucky enough to meet Opeth in person after a gig in Birmingham Uk, we had some drinks and they were some of the nicest guys ive ever met, very friendly, down to earth people.

this song went beyond a hit! It left its artists and became a part of the popular culture just like Sir Mixalot's "I like big butts"! and today's kids sing the texts without having a clue about whoever sang them!

lol! I remember that song very well, it was released around the same time as Bryan Adams SUPERHIT "Everything i Do...". I actually preferred RSF's second single "Dont Talk Just Kiss"...

 

 

Apparently those guys still release regular albums hehe!

good that you reminded me! This thread just has to have a clip with the "white British boy with a black man's voice"! :D

I always liked this second single better than the "never gonna give you up"! Stock Aitken Waterman, the just-add-singer hitmakers of the 80's! :D

Hehe, i'm surprised he was yet to feature in this thread! Uber-cheesy, but great tracks nonetheless. I didn't even realise he was British, always assumed he was from the US lol.

 

I'm slightly ashamed to say that back in the early 90's i was addicted to this rave act form the UK, they had some huge hits...

Pourya jan, i loved that entire album "Older", a masterpiece which marked Michaels creative peak. Loved the dark pop-jazz fusion. Brings back some fond adolescent memories for me!
