1987 – Pump Up the Volume

February 22nd, 2019 · No Comments · Music

Another year and still the music was a bit naff, but with some signs of  life and items of interest to point out while waiting eagerly for the 90’s to arrive.

All Killer – Original Pirate Material (2002)

February 17th, 2019 · No Comments · Music

Well this is a bit recent for me. When it came out I was nearly 40 and so I should be too old for it, but I picked it up at the market in Lower Marsh one lunchtime and when I put it on the stereo that evening I could not do anything until it […]

1981 – Spellbound

February 17th, 2019 · No Comments · Music

Although I enjoyed the 80’s at the time, I don’t enjoy looking back on them as much as the 70’s. Maybe I should make more of an effort. As far as music was concerned, there was a lot of good stuff, even if a lot of it was quite superficial and 1981 was no exception. […]

1973 – Living For The City

February 10th, 2019 · Comments Off on 1973 – Living For The City · Music

What a year 1973 was for music, but then so were all years in the 1970’s really. For a start it was a great year for glam rock, with great tunes from Suzi Quatro (Can the Can & 48 Crash), T. Rex (20th Century Boy), Sweet (Ballroom Blitz and Blockbuster), Slade (Cum on Feel the […]

1972 – Papa Was A Rollin’ Stone

February 5th, 2019 · Comments Off on 1972 – Papa Was A Rollin’ Stone · Music

I have been looking forward to reaching 1972 for two reasons: it is when there staarted to be so much good (to me) music that choosing one track starts to get harder, and one of those track is possibly the greatest song ever. A strong assertion thre, but listen properly to Papa Was A Rollin’ […]

1970 – 25 or 6 to 4

February 1st, 2019 · Comments Off on 1970 – 25 or 6 to 4 · Music

At last we reach the 70’s, the best decade for music. That is only my opinion of course, but it is also a fact! The decade of prog, glam, reggae, soul, disco, blues rock, punk, krautrock, the start of rap, and much more. Of course in 1970 I was still only 8 and not really […]

1964 – The Ballad of Hollis Brown

December 9th, 2018 · Comments Off on 1964 – The Ballad of Hollis Brown · Music

OK, so this might not be an obvious one. It isn’t one of Bob Dylan’s best-known songs and wasn’t even a single, but although I obviously wasn’t listening to this as a two-year-old I did listen to it a lot at quite a young age. When I was growing up there were very few records […]

1963 – She Loves You

December 9th, 2018 · Comments Off on 1963 – She Loves You · Music

At I was still too young to be engaged with music other than maybe nursery rhymes, and without having the good fortune of one of my all-time favourites being released, as in 1962, it isn’t easy to pick a song for 1963. Looking at the singles for this year there are precious few that I […]

1962 – Green Onions

December 7th, 2018 · Comments Off on 1962 – Green Onions · Music

A few months ago I created a Spotify playlist with one track for every year of my life. I already have plenty of playlists that mostly have similar types of music in them – so a punk playlist, a rap playlist, a krautrock playlist, and so on, but I am trying to set some up […]
