Concur. The band lost most of its progressive edge when Gabriel left and they eventually evolved to mainstream rock by the time of "We Can't Dance".




I think Steve Hackett's departure. was a bigger influence in moving to a more mainstream/pop sound. After Gabriel left they still produced "Trick of the Tail" and "Wind & Wuthering," two excellent and very much progressive rock albums.
After Hackett left, they produced "And Then There Were Three...," which in itself is a commentary on their situation. The first tune on the album, "Down and Out," is about a band confronting the need to change their sound to be able to continue to be successful. Autobiographical maybe? Or maybe I'm reading something into it, but the album has a much different sound than their previous material, none of the long epic tunes that is synonymous with progressive rock, and a downright pop song in "Follow You, Follow Me," which of course became a pretty big hit for the band.


Very good point. I still think 'Trick of the Tail' is one of the best albums Genesis ever produced. 'The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway' being the very best. 'Fly on a Windshield' being one of my faves.

Lol. This has to be one of the gayest songs ever...

But that bass...dam (and Molly Ringwalds' bassist nails this song, IMO).

The problem with the 80's is that even the really crappy stuff can end up impressing in some way. smile

Right there with you on “The Lamb!” For me 2nd place is a tie between “Trick of the Tail,” “Wind & Wuthering”, and “Selling England By The Pound.”

For 80's awesome I would have to nominate Wham. George Michael really did have an amazing voice.

Don't get me wrong, we had some really risque videos in the 80s, but funny thing--when in concert, I've observed many a performer less so in some of the recordings of events I've seen. This isn't a blanket rule, though. There were exceptions. smile

That was an awful song.


You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking

“Rico Suave” by Gerardo was an early 90’s song, not 80’s. smile

Someone touched on this earlier, but I believe in the 80's it was still considered cool for women to have a conservative aura that I for one found very attractive.

As I did the woman in this 1982 Rocky-Poppy video at 2:04+...

Look at what you started Dart! I'm holding you personally responsible, you probably should go look in a mirror and take stock of yourself neaner


Regards a lack of knowledge on current or at least post 2000 music and musicians, here's a couple of awesome ladies that many would not have heard and hold up to the ladies of the past. Kate Bush was definitely a stand out of her time i will admit, she wasn't scared to experiment and go outside the norms.








































That's not even scratching the surface, it can honestly be hard to keep up with the plethora of music that is pumped out these days which in a way is nice as one doesn't hear one song for months on end.

One song for months on end? You must have missed my 80's albums listing, and it's far from complete (and IMO not even the best decade of music).

My two favorite modern female singers would likely be Alison Goldfrapp, who is nuts and creative as hell, and Tessa Murray of Still Corners, who's voice is dreamy:



She plays a killer straight out of the 80s slow bassline on the second song on this album, starting at 3:38:

I will say that no matter how good he was, I can't stand to listen to Prince any more.

Not because of some political view (because in the 80's artists just didn't play that game), or some lyric choices, or how he ruined Sheena Easton, or because it was bad music.

It's because it was all the local radio stations would play Prince songs over and over and over and over again.

The same is true for the Alabama band. Since I went to High School just up the road from Fort Payne it was Alabama Band 24/7 on the radio.

Hilariously enough, me and my buddy ran into them while fishing the South Sauty one afternoon, and while they appreciated the fact that we didn't swoon or act weird, they were also surprised about it (this was about the time they were Country Music Group of the Year, etc.). They admitted they didn't listen to the local radio much, as they have to rehearse and play the songs enough as it is, and having to hear it again and again...and then started laughing.

"Y'all know we don't have nothing to do with that, right?" was their apology. Accepted. So we swapped some jigs (the bass were biting the white ones that day, and the debate was over long versus short), shook hands all around, and left each other on good terms.

Having given this much thought...

1. The vast majority of people I know who are my age could give two flips about music, old or new. It's something they rarely talk about and doesn't seem important in their daily lives except for maybe a little background noise when they're not watching TV. The fact that we're interested (or even passionate) enough to discuss it like this is rare.

2. I frequently listen to music I've never heard before. Usually I'm walking a downtown or the French Quarter with my wife and we hear something coming from a bar or restaurant that interests us. Or we'll go to a book store that offers coffee and a live performer (although that's becoming very rare these days). Or even catching a performance in a world famous Jazz Club in NYC. If it's something I can groove to (like the occasional new tune one of you might post here), I'm good. And sometimes I like it so much I even purchase it...



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g12f7uDIGZc

But I'm a lot more discerning with the music I purchase (usually CD, sometimes DRM-free MP3). Plus it's not my personality to feel like I have to keep moving on to the next or newest thing. If I *really* like something, I'll probably never get bored with it.

3. New music to me is mostly a young person's game, how I felt about it as a teen and how I still feel about it in my 50's. Let the old folks enjoy their oldies (if they even still care about music at all). smile

BTW, this to me is still the all-time best Pop music (one off Thriller without an Eddie Van Halen guitar solo)...

Late '70s and '80s music was so crappy I started getting interested in 'alternative' and 'punk'. It was so 'off the chain' and hilarious! I am mostly a classical music fan including opera. Turandot is a great 'first' opera especially for dating! Jazz and blues are in my 'diet', too!
