Cool. I'm going with a real classic here, a nice sing-along-song.

Shinehead feat. Sting - Jamaican in New York (1992) though I prefer the original version (moving all of the 70s & 90s stuff from the other thread)


[ Show youtube player ]


Michael Jackson - Rock with You (1979)
... though for me, the absolute best version is from the late South African trumpet player Hugh Masekela. Don't get me wrong, Quincy Jones arrangements on the album this was taken from are top notch (as always).


[ Show youtube player ]


Gary Moore - Parisianne Walkways (1979)
Trottoir is a male type name, so it ought to be "Parisiens Walkways" but anyway. Song was often aired on radio during the late 90s.

Crystal Waters - Gipsy Woman (1991)

Just found the song posted on YT (by Sony Music community manager, who would have thought ?), so here it is. So much better than MJ / QJ version it's not even fair, wouldn't you agree ? That album 'Beatin' around de bush' (double entendre) was released in 1992. Also, Miriam Makeba from Pata Pata fame was Hugh ex-wife in case some of you ignored that bit of trivia.

Two more songs :

Billy Ray Cirus - Achy Breaky Heart (1993)


[ Show youtube player ]


Héroes Del Silencio - Entre dos tierras (1990)


[ Show youtube player ]


U2 feat. David Howell Evans aka the Edge - Numb (1993), not a huge fan of U2 myself, except with the Joshua Tree, they never really were hitting top gear, it's a bit sad they gave up on rock music that way, in a snap so to speak.


[ Show youtube player ]


Nick Kamen - I Promised Myself (1990, the vastly superior radio edit)


[ Show youtube player ]

I know we're not supposed to speak about religion, but, according to ZZ Top, circa 1973, something may have happened involving Jesus worth mentioning....

Jesus was a person though, not a religion. It's fine. But eh, now that you've said that, I am obligated to follow that up.

Because Jesus also built hotrods. (I'm actually sorry for posting this one, it's an acquired taste).

Wait, are you suggesting that songs can't have anything religious in them if posted here on eab??

What about one that is based on quote from one of my favorite journalist/author Christopher Hitchens:

I am sure this is NOT from 80s.

Not bad, heh ? I like that dry, uncompromising beat. Care for another lively track ? This time it's Max Linen feat. Keithen Carter behind the decks (posted it myself some time ago, got deleted). Lyrics are fun too, they sound a bit like depiction of a vivid nightmare.

And now for something completely different... the Smashing Pumpkins. I can literally pick almost any song here but I'm going with the End is the Beginning is the End from the Batman soundtrack.

[ Show youtube player ]

Really cool song, I close my eyes and drift away when listening to it.

(but that's because I love the classic Smashing Pumpkins, I can imagine to other people it sounds like nails on a chalkboard).

Alice In Chains - No Excuses

This is something I would frequently default to. Mix it with Nirvana and SoundGarden / Audioslave and you get idea...

Since all 3 singers are not alive for a while now, Godsmack and Tool is what kind of hits the same notes... SOAD is getting there...

Hope for our sanity and peace of mind that these three will not become alive and roam the earth again anytime soon! Last night, while listening to some Siouxsie & Banshees songs, i noticed something funny. That dance duet Capella plagiarized Siouxsie when they released U Got 2 Know, a very popular Euro dancefloor song during the 90s (got sued for it, and lost the trial) :
