Oh I thought my neighbours were going to call the police for a welfare check or something. The same records over and over again for a week straight.
  Fri. 12/29/17 5:29pm Michael Z:

You play the coolest music. Nahid Akhtar looks nothing like I would imagine her from this super wild sounding track. So prim, but what a smile.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/29/17 5:29pm maestroso:

Just got home from drive time. Wow, you played Utada! I thought I recognised her voice. Her new record is called "Fantome" and is quite good.
  Fri. 12/29/17 5:30pm Jocelyn:

Christine, That's terrible isn't it? When one can't voice an opinion for fear of being called old or out of touch. Good music is still being made thankfully. It's just become a bit harder to find.

Sheila, what is this? It's great!

Christine, We in this country seem to have fertile musical periods that wax and wane. I like Euro pop the best. I think the Brits do pop best, it's a gift. African Americans started Rock and Roll and Jazz and everything else.

this track was the introduction to CT back then I heard it at Tower Records.
Avatar Fri. 12/29/17 5:33pm Christine:

Really great pairing of songs here, Sheila :)

Hah, thought this might've been Delerium, but rather it's Delerium's honored forebears!

one of my favorite Cocteau songs ever! thank you sheila!
  Fri. 12/29/17 5:34pm Mandy:

I dont think our music has gotten worse, I think it's all so new that the cream hasn't risen to the top. plus back in "the good old days" there weren't a whole lot of pathways for music to be discovered. now thru *the internet* garbage can be broadcast on the same level as great music.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/29/17 5:34pm Michael 98145:

Christine is right.
Avatar Fri. 12/29/17 5:34pm Christine:

Brian Cat, so true. And the Swedes seem to have the pop gene! Just grateful the internet lets us explore so much amazing music from different places and eras.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/29/17 5:36pm Cecile:

I think the 80s are to modern kids what the 50s and 60s for us Xers and late Boomers. Far enough away so you can find gems in the trash that original listeners left behind and also you have a distance from the music while still loving it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/29/17 5:36pm djsheilab:

common—Me too! My heart beats faster when I hear that song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/29/17 5:36pm Cecile:

Also, it was the last full decade without Internet culture.
  Fri. 12/29/17 5:37pm EarlyMorningInSeoul:

@Mandy: totally agree. There is so much content out there and to me it seems like anyone can be a "musician," (having a computer that can make the sounds) but there also needs to be talent there.
  Fri. 12/29/17 5:37pm mzz:

oh I forgot abot JA. Her debut album didn't leave from turntable for a month back when my roommate gave ti to me back then.
Avatar Fri. 12/29/17 5:38pm Brian Cat:

Cecile, good observation.

If I remember correctly, the 80s also featured a lot of terrible music

- where else in the world can you hear a mix of music this deep and broad? -
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/29/17 5:40pm northguineahills:

I have many Cocteau Twins, but never heard that one before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/29/17 5:40pm Cecile:

oh, yes it did, fred.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/29/17 5:40pm Rob Kopp:

@Mandy. I agree. In the time of vinyl or CD's (as long it's material) there was less "garbage". Nowadays everyone can put something on YouTube or where ever.
Avatar Fri. 12/29/17 5:41pm Brian Cat:

fred, the bad charts were the American companies. The good stuff was the Second Wave Brits.

Yes Swedish pop genes! Fave new FF band from there is Pale Honey.

Meeting your heroes is thrilling. Even more so when they're just as nice as you expect them to be.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/29/17 5:42pm Cecile:

Rob, and compared to the 60s and 70s, the 80s had SO MANY RECORDS.
People complained that there were too many records out. Cheap studio time, digital tape.
hahahaha
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/29/17 5:43pm Michael 98145:

by the 80s, radio had completely split off into genres
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/29/17 5:44pm Cecile:

As a metal and rap head, I do miss the days when the absolute best were at the top of the charts.
  Fri. 12/29/17 5:44pm Mandy:

that's why we need DJs like you Sheila! keep finding the good stuff for us!!<3

whoa - wall of sound
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/29/17 5:44pm Cecile:

A good DJ is like a good newspaper editor. Filter out the gunk and deliver the primo. Too bad a DJ can't yell out stuff like "Get me rewrite!!!"
  Fri. 12/29/17 5:45pm Jocelyn:

Oh this song!

( when was the last time anyone read a copy of NME ? )
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Fri. 12/29/17 5:46pm Rob Kopp:

@Cecile: It's THE problem for everyone at the moment: CHOOSE. I mean, in NL when I grew up, we only had 2 TV programs. TWO! Now over hundred.

You know even Justin Timberlake noted that good curators would be the movers and shakers of the future.

This set is heavenly so far.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Fri. 12/29/17 5:47pm Cecile:

Rob, I know. I have cut my channels back to a quarter of what I have and Netflix, and I've rarely been happier in my viewing. But there is just too much damn choice. I'm afraid to explore artists, I'm just looking for good songs.

Killer show. One of your best ever!

Michael, showing my age with the answer but the last time I bought a copy I believe it had either Shirley Manson or Courtney Love on the cover.

Exactly, Rob.

Jocelyn, probably more amazing Timbaland tracks that anyone could ever hear.
