  1. I could go on for hours! Coldplay and Aqualung sounding like Radiohead and Travis. I do like Aqualung, though. The stalker in me and all
  2. ... and Nirvana pulled a riff from Killing Joke in an attempt to sound awesome. Hey, how about Silverchair looking like Nirvana and sounding like Pearl Jam?! Hahaha! Yeah! Or Bush, which also sounded a lot like Pearl Jam!
  3. Strangest sound-alike: "Send Me An Angel" by Real Life sounds a bit like The Scorpions. This is strange because one is a SynthPop band and the other is Hard Rock. Yet another coincidence is that The Scorpions also have a song called "Send Me Angel" that sounds nothing like Real Life's
  4. If we're talking counterfeit... and if y'all don't mind me mentioning famous groups, then I'd say Duran Duran wins some kind of prize for looking and sounding just like Japan. Coincidentally, Japan's frontman, David Sylvian, has a knack of sounding kind of like Bryan Ferry of Roxy Music, especially during Japan's last album, Tin Drum. How about Steve Augeri and Steve Perry, both lead singers of Journey?
  5. Wow. Just plain wow. Before I bought this album, I had vague recollections of Cerrone's music. In fact, I didn't even know those songs in my memory were by Cerrone. I re-discovered this world-renown Disco God through this album. Track listing is as follows: 1 Love in C Minor 2 Major Sea 3 C Minor Outro 4 Revelacion 5 Kongas Fun 6 1982 7 Supernature 8 Striptease 9 Phonic 10 Love Is the Answer 11 Interlude 12 Cerrone's Paradise 13 Assassinat 14 Standing in the Rain 15 Roller Coaster 16 Living on Love 17 Rocket in the Pocket 18 Look for L
  6. I need to add Jewel, Alanis, and Shakira into this pile.
  7. There was that time when The Rolling Stones and Rod Steward thought they were Disco groups
  8. YOu NEED to get thee to the Sunday show. Have your boyfriend buy the Wednesday one, but definitely you have to get to the Sunday show even if you have to crawl on your chin on gravel!
  9. For those in SoCal, check out ticket vendors. The OC Pac Amphitheatre is having an online presale. If they ask you for a password, try: RISIS or GAME After the 20th, I think tix go on sale for the general public. I already got two front row seats for this gig - at 55 bucks! This is awersome!
  10. Journey is definitely not the same without Steve Perry. I don't mean to dis the new lead, but it's really not the same. The band mates say that "there was a Journey before Steve, so there can be a Journey after". Sure, if by before they mean all the 70s stuff they were cutting, which by to-day's short attention spans wouldn't get airplay. A gig of early Journey music wouldn't draw in as many fans who grew up on the songs Perry fronted. If anything, they shoulda gone a different route and chosen a singer that didn't sound so much like Steve Perry because now they really cannot escape the critic
  11. Wow. I listed most of these songs without consulting this old post
  12. I think I responded to this thread before, but I'm gonna list some excellent covers. Pardon me, should I repeat myself... I'm old, so I tend to do that Here are some cover songs that I think are just as good as the original: - "Keep Me Hangin' On" by Kim Wilde - "Tainted Love" by Soft Cell - "Red, Red Wine" by UB40 (decent, not as great as the original) - "In A Manner Of Speaking" by Martin L. Gore - "Let's Spend The Night Together", "Sorrow", and "Wild Is The Wind" by David Bowie - "Fame" by Duran Duran - "Route 66" and "Moonlight Sonata" (yes, that "Moonlight Sonata") by Depeche
  13. Kinda odd, now that I look at the artists that immediately came to mind as far getting that physical sensation whenever I hear their voice: Roxy Music and Bryan Ferry Death In June Chris Isaak Mazzy Star
  14. "Bela Lugosi's Dead" sounded, to me, like how Bauhaus would record an "epic" song.
  15. Good folksy sound to "Pink Moon". I'm usually not one to listen to acoustic music, so it's difficult for me to gauge it on first listen.
  16. If anyone is interested in listening to selections of Explosion In The Sky's songs, here's an unofficial myspace site dedicated to just that There is a bit of redeeming value to myspace after all, if you happen to be into music. Lotta fanpages spring up every month. I'm currently listening to a track called "Once More To The After..." (title cuts off). They sound more like a blend of Vini Reilly/Durutti Column and Dif Juz in that song. I also like the little factoid they mention: They used to go by the name "Breaker Morant", one of my all-time favourite films Batman, which song would you
  17. Oh, man. How I could I miss THAT?! Yes! Sort of reminds of the lesser efforts by Jodorowsky: El Topo and Holy Mountain. Crappy movies, but still great curios to have. There's also Pasolini's short film, La Riccota.
  18. What about "Saved By Zero" and "Red Skies"?
  19. A Flock Of Seagulls also had a hit with "Space Age Lovesong" and Kajagoogoo's Limahl had a hit with "Neverending Story" Both are pretty good bands, actually, in spite of their perceived one-hit wonderness.
  20. A lot of it is a bit of satire. They do mention Queen as an evil spawned and they list NewOrder at 20 (as far as "electronica" goes, they come a bit close).
  21. The Last Temptation Of Christ and Life Of Brian
