I am listening to BlurĀ“s album "Parklife", which in my opinion is quite a modern classic (very good Britpop). At this moment: "Jubilee". But this album contains Girls & boys, Parklife, London loves... I have really no clue about Oasis (except for the stupid and arrogant Gallagher brothers), but Blur is my preferred choice when it comes to britpop.

maybe this can help, it is from All Music Guide

Song Review by Denise Sullivan
The American psycho as portrayed in Warren Zevon's "Excitable Boy," the title track from his 1978 breakthrough album, is one of his patented grisly stories set to a jaunty little pop tune. Admittedly, Linda Ronstadt's and Jennifer Warnes' "woo-ah-ooing" all over the place tempers the blow, but few aside from Zevon could've gotten over the line, "And he raped her and killed her, then he took her home" without committing career suicide. Thats OK, Zevon was on a real-life path toward self-destruction. Around the time of the album's release, he told his friend Paul Nelson in the Rolling Stone interview, "I thought my days were numbered in fractions." Luckily, they weren't, and "Excitable Boy" lives on as a classic album track from late-'70s FM radio.

Thanks mofur - glad you like the tread!

Perhaps this should be posted under the "guilty pleasures" thread, but I am in fact listening to Saturday Night by the Bay City Rollers.

Dirty and guilty indeed!! ..is it any good? *lol* (all I remember about BCR was that they were a girlie band (ie - you did not listen to them if you were a boy) and one of their members later was convicted on a charge of being pedohile!!) ;-)

Yes the are 100% girlie band. I've just always had a soft spot for them. Pretty nasty about the pedophile tho. I'll have to google that.

As far as I can recall it was the slightly older one who left the band suddenly to become a male nurse? (Or maybe doctor) Alan?? And it was many years later that he was caught - and if I remember correctly - convicted ;-)

Hehe - yup ...would not recognize one of their songs if it bit me in the leg - but have always been interested in reading about music and these tidbits just seem to stick so much easier to by my brain than say - algebra?? *lol*

I know a lot about different bands - even bands I hate - like Pink Floyd ;-) (or BCR)

..whilst listening to "Out of Control" San Diego 1998 - 9:03 - love the long versions they played back then ;-)

Jeez...I forgot that they follow through with Memory Motel with almost just Keef on the second lead vocal + backing vocals (as opposed to Dave Matthew doing the honors sometime...) This is how the Stones should sound...

No, actually - we've just seen the Pirates seequel - and he's fed...popcorn and cola - two of the major food groups *lol*
