"I always forget how white you are until I look at the playlists on your MP3 player," No Aco did not bleach himself during the week.The Derailer tends to refer to me as white because alongside what you what you would call "black" music ie rap,hip-hop,raggae,ragga, r 'n' b,soul; I tend to listen to a whole lot of alternative,techno,pop etc.The kind of music some people don't expect a black man to be listening to (yes I know that's short sighted) but onwards (I should tell you how once back home when my Uncle came on holiday from the states her tore into me royally for listening to rock music, I was told that that music wasn't for me but for unruly young white folk).I do agree that there are racist musicians out there but I dont listen to everythuing that hits my ear, that and the fact that I cant stand country music too!
Anyhoo just thought I would tell you that things havent changed much but I still have a major love for the old stuff I used to listen to because most of what is out nowadays is pure and total crap!Is it just me or is creativity in music a totally obsolete concept?Remember those days when you could buy a tape (yes I'm that old!) and all the tracks on it would be slamming and would have a completely new sound?The good old days wghen boy and girl bands actually knew how to sing and dance?
Here are some songs of videos that I have loved and still do...
White Town - Your Woman.I don't know how many of you heard this song?But I love it to this day!
Alphaville - Big in Japan.I can't recall when I first heard this song but it makes my day.But looking at what the singers are wearing, it's amazing what people used to wear them days!
Culture Club- Karma Chameleon.Another wonderful relic of the past but those bastards at CArnivore used to play it every Rock Night.This is not a rock song, bastards!
This post is till in progress.More songs on the way!
Yes - Owner of a Lonely Heart.This song feels so 80's!But I must confess that it had slipped my mind and it is only GTA (Grand Theft Auto: San Anreas)That put me onto it.Yes I actually listen to the songs that play in the game!
Kid Frost - La Raza. This is what we had before reggaeton!Makes for better listening if you ask me.
Phil Collins - In The Air Tonight.Before he started making crappy songs for Disney movies this man was a guru.This track has been sampled by rappers ad nauseum but the original still sounds the best!
Human League - Don't You Want Me Baby. As Udi would say,"That song shikas like a nonesense!"
Men At Work - Down Under.Please please lie to me that you do not know this song!You are only excused if you were born after 1985!This song is a masterpiece!
Toto - Africa.This song just takes me way back plus it's a nice song!
Anway lest I stay here and give videos for all the good old songs I have to get back to work.Happy Birthday Milo!
