Random music tracks, part 1.


Recommended Posts

Got around to putting a bunch of random stuff from my collection (past and present) on a portable hard drive so I would have some new listening at the office. Loaded all 50GB into Windows Media Player and hit shuffle.

 

I'm running into a few tracks that I'd forgotten about, or flat out never heard before.

 

I thought it would be fun to occasionally post a track here for folks to check out, have you guess who it is, and post your thoughts pro or con about the tune(s).

 

First one:

 

Track 1

I like it!

 

Got that nice London Quireboys/Janis Joplin vibe.

 

Is this that Andy McCoy project called Cherry Bombs?

Haha... I was going to PM Dan the other day to ask the same. Perhaps a step-by-step guided tour is in order? :lol:

 

As for the song, Cherry Bombz sounds like a solid guess to me.

I got about a minute into track 1 and had to bail. That voice was like fingernails on a chalkboard and I found the lyrics were kind of juvenile. No offense.

 

Gawd - track 2 starts out with a really cheesy intro, and at the end of verse 1, there's a Michael Jacksonesque "Owwwww!!!". I just couldn't go on any farther. Granted, I prefer much heavier stuff, so maybe I'm not the best choice to critique these tracks. As an opinionated asshole, I tend to rub people the wrong way with my two cents.

Track 1 was from Krystal - Plug This! from 1994.

I'm confused now. Isn't there a dude singing for Krystal? I have that disc and I swore it was a dude. I need to do some serious re-listening tonight.

As for the second song, I'm guessing Bogart Co, going by the album on the main site and the sound of their videos on youtube.

That is a guy singing on song one!

WTF???!! Okay, I just need to hear this all again. Although, as Axelinger noted, it wasn't exactly pleasant listening the first time round. ;)

:lol: I have to agree with this 100%. I don't mind some cheesy stuff, but holy f*ck! Waaaay too cheesy 80's pop for me. Sounds like a theme song to some horrid 80's teen movie with nerds perving on sexy girls in the shower or something. :lol:

I really like track 2. Very 80's sounding and I'm no stranger to the music from the 80's. But I got no clue who this is.... So Dan enlighten us, who is it? :unsure:

 

Bogart Co's out of the question Captain Howdy, I got that disc.
