Retro's Rockers

Postby retrofuturist » Sat Jul 24, 2010 2:06 am

Greetings,

For no real reason other than because I feel like it, I'm going to do a countdown of my favourite 100 bands and musicians! A new one each day...

Let's get this party started...






Metta,
Retro. :)

How long do we have to wait for the Pet Shop Boys? Some West End girls would like to know.

:thumbsup: Cool.

I am not as big of a music fan as Retro, but I love lists and countdowns. :tongue:

When I was younger I liked watching the "Top 100 music videos of all time" on MTV. I always thought it was kind of funny how the Top 10 seemed to be dominated by musicians who were currently in the Top 40 (of that time) for a so-called "all-time" best list.

Bruce or No Bruce?
If there is to be no Springsteen, I'm not sure I can fully support this enterprise. http://www.brucespringsteen.net/news/index.html

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Springsteen rocks as hard as anyone ever has. He's thoughtful, clear minded, and determined to use his talents to inspire. He's a national treasure.
And he can be funny.

Greetings Bodom,

Yeah, my favourite metal bands often use(d) keyboards and synthesizers... probably the best two exponents of that combination IMO were Fear Factory and Type O Negative. Fear Factory in particular were pioneers, and others have since followed in their footsteps too, including the slightly crazy Strapping Young Lad whose track Detox is worth checking out if you don't know it. ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QrNOqVZbwWw )
