So, I've finally had a peek at this thread and, wow, big. I'll have to start going through the last 42 pages gradually. IDK the exact content rules, but I presume sub-genres of rock are allowed (eg: Metal, etc.)
Also dunno what's been posted already, but here's some 2 cents (both lengthy pieces).

Dire Straits - Telegraph Road (from Love Over Gold, one of the best albums ever)

Epica - The Divine Conspiracy (from the album of the same name)
^ Americans probably don't know them -- or half the stuff I'll post in the future (this is in my "lesser obscure" category)

There's a bunch of stuff in the thread that isn't rock. So, my understanding is 'music' is what's allowed - with the stipulation that we're a PG13 site. That'd apply to the music, as well...

Now, I don't have time (or interest) in listening to the music shared. So, I operate under the 'trust' system. I trust you to ensure you post content that's acceptable.

If I get a report (which I have so far not), I'll be much more disappointed 'cause then you've violated the trust - and that's just in the 'not cool' category.

Thank ye kindly fer yer trust! Don't be worryin' 'bout ratings o' content, 'twas merely a question o' rules "in-universe" fer this here thread. I'll naught post a thing that daytime radio wouldne post.

...Actually I'd better filter things myself. Radio last I even gave it a chance a decade or two back, censors "sh--" and "f---" and "ni----" while leaving intact lyrics describing perverse sexual acts and murder -- see a naughty word is more harmful to our kids than the gratuitous description of sex acts. That's one reason to quit radio, another being they play nothing but generic shite, but the biggest is streaming services and local storage let you build your own playlists.
I love Land of Confusion, I even like the cover (Disturbed, IDK if there were others). And that's rare since I usually hate covers of songs as much as remakes of films.

James @Fanboi glad you found your way here :)

Let's talk about Todd Rundgren. I used to and still do find his "Can We Still Be Friends?" very pleasant listening.




Others may know know Todd as being at the strings and frets of the motorcycle guitar component in "Bat Out of Hell" by the late great Meatloaf.


Todd nailed the guitar work in one take with the recording.

And just for a bit of trivia, Todd is also stepfather to Liv Rundgren Tyler (biological father Steve Tyler, Aerosmith), known for her role as Arwen Undomiel in The Lord of The Rings, and 911 Lone Star.

Cheers

Wiz

On content and behaviour here?

This thread's been going for 3 years, with 832 contributions and 110,000 views - my baby and I can quite easily bang any heads with a very large pair of cymbals, but I see no need to, nor do I expect to.

Anything that rocks your boat you can place here, but I would ask that if it is Classical, you can place it at @arochester 's excellent thread here.

Hey Chris, great idea for a thread, BTW. I actually looked around to see if there was a music thread a while back, thinking of starting one myself. I discovered this from your thread in your sig (checked them all out). Believe it or not, I thought it would be about Rox "Desktop Environment" (rox-filer + some other nifties can make a great X11 "DE" -- cobbled together -- which'll barely set you back 100MB), lol.
Re Todd Rundgren, I wasn't familiar with him, TBH. I mean the name sounded familiar, maybe cozza having the name Todd, make cozza Meatloaf (it's been ages since I've heard Bat Out of Hell, especially the full version and not a "radio edit"). As an irrelevant aside, every time I see or hear Meatloaf, all I think of is "What a guy!" "Makes you cry." "Und I did." lol. Anyway, I listened to a little more Rundgren on YT, and I notice he has a good sense of harmonies. That and the added electric instrumentals makes me wonder if he wasn't in some part an inspiration for/to ABBA (not a crazy fan of theirs, but I acknowledge their talent for harmonies -- my mum is, and she's a qualified concert pianist & ATCL, so I mean they gotta be fairly gifted). He uses that very prominent upbeat build-up --> rise --> accelerate --> release of the more classical rock. Wiki says his career started in 1966, which would've put him slap bang in the pioneering era, so respect to him as that makes him one of the people who helped in bringing electronic instruments into the light (and that gave birth, through a few degrees of separation, to some of the strange and experimental stuff I listen to today). Overall impression: pleasant, easy listening, and upbeat music. Kinda stuff you'd put on your mixtapes to sing along to on long drives when there's nothing but endless highway and you can afford singing along out of key without the fear you usually get when a mate hands you the mic a karaoke night.

Anything that rocks your boat you can place here, but I would ask that if it is Classical, you can place it at @arochester 's excellent thread here.

Of course... That said, the lines get blurry with Symphonic Metal, and related genres, lol. Nah, I can say if it's not classical, so that's all I need to define it; defining something by what it is not (I best not digress into that smoke-infused rabbit hole, we'll leave that to the philosophers).

And just to post something more mainstream for everyone of all ages and eras:
Angels & Airwaves - The Flight Of Apollo (Love Part One)
A&A aren't so widely known since DeLonge just didn't have Blink 182's publicity -- TBH I prefer A&A to Blink

Pink Floyd "Dark Side Of The Moon" brings back some good memories.

I still love the old music but it ain't the same no more seems to remind me how much time has past and how old I am.

OH well can't be young forever huh.

I'll be 71 years old next month damn. :p
