Summer Music

I always seem to leave you guys for the summer. I think it's because I DJ a lot of dances, house parties, BBQs, and other functions this time of year, so I'm usually balls deep Pop music. My passion for music doesn't stop at Hard Rock. I try to stay on top of everything, which is no easy feat. My trick is I stay away from that Top 40 shit. Heh.

Anyway, I thought I would share some of the good stuff I've discovered this year. Bear with me:

 

Earth, Wind & Fire - Guiding Lights

Fort Lean - Sunsick

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEvHJSpQK_A

 

Ghost Beach - Miracle

Gigamesh - Burnin'

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I9c3nkNjot8

 

Niki & the Dove - Mother Protect

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XojSSa0jwxU

Good thread. My tuppence:

 

Surprisingly (for me at least) I like the Earth, Wind & Fire track. I like the first Wildcat! Wildcat! track too, the second I found pretty boring. They massively remind me of Mew, a band that I quite like, although I really prefer their more upbeat stuff.

 

The others don't do much for me, especially the Gilgamesh tune, which makes me want to break things.

Heh, fair enough. I figured that'd be the track most likely to get folks here heated.

 

Anyway, here are a few more tracks. Hopefully, these won't inspire vandalism:

 

Breakbot - Programme

Foxes - White Coats

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7tfuUzK5W4

 

KO KO - Float

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daSEUli2jkM

 

Reptar - Sebastian

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8j5AhFzxdyY

 

Okay, here are two that may incite a riot:

 

Jackson 5 - Dancing Machine (Gigamesh Remix)

The Knocks - R.O.Y.L.

Little Daylight is quite pleasant, much better than 99% of the rubbish that I hear on the radio, but I'm finding the tune a little bland. The Jaymes Young track, though - sorry, but I really hate that. One of the most boring pieces of 'music' I've heard for ages.

Strange Talk - So So La La

 

 

BTW, love that one!

 

 

I'm also really liking this. Not particularly summery, but not rock or metal:

Were you already familiar with Strange Talk? Actually, what is radio like over there? Not one of these tracks is, or will be played on any of our radio stations.

Nope, never heard of them.

 

Some of this stuff might get played on Radio 2, which is the BBC's more conservative radio station. It plays a mixture of modern and older music, but none of the dance / R&B rubbish that dominates the other stations. I don't know about these songs specifically, but that Lissie song was on there and they play stuff that sounds similar to Strange Talk, etc.

 

BTW, wtf am I doing wrong? Why don't my Youtube links post as video clips any more? :huhsign:

Yeah, our CBC has a Radio 2, as well, which plays a good mix of music, but still wouldn't feature any of the aforementioned, save Grouplove. They don't play any Melodic Rock, however, but Lissie is someone that would definitely get airtime. In fact, that may be where I first heard about her.

 

As for the YouTube video embedding, I admit, I have been having issues, too. What I've done to 'remedy' the problem is, I copy/paste the url to the Facebook status bar. Without posting it, I select and copy it, again, and then paste it here. It's a bit tedious, and I don't know if my method requires Facebook, but it's been working so why change it.

Somebody on this site will probably enjoy this as much as I do. Huge 80's inspired track. Somebody in the comments stated that this sounds like Phil Collins-era Genesis and Toto. I would specify 80's-era Genesis, but, yeah. Let me know what you guys think.

 

St. Lucia - Elevate

Currently on my ninth consecutive spin of this track. In case you all forgot about the Pop shit I listen to, I give you Peter Thomas the man responsible for the sound of Betty Who. This track features none other than... Betty Who. So it sounds just like any other Betty Who track, but this one is under Peter Thomas' name. Oop... ten times, now.

Oh Yeah,this is AWESOME featuring as you say the fantastic Betty Who.

Got the Betty Who EP "The Movement" last year after hearing the FM Attack remix of "Somebody Loves You" fantastic stuff.

If you've never heard this what do you think?

I love it,taken from their album Dancing For Victory.

 

Cool-ass tune.

 

Mr.AOR, if you are not already familiar with Donkeyboy, get on it immediately.

The 80's was not my decade - born in '87 - but I said, "feck the 90's!"

 

St. Lucia is also fantastic in concert. Be sure to see them, if they stop by. I know you're in Finland, but who knows. They aren't big, yet, so tickets are generally cheap.

I didn't plan for this thread to turn into this. I originally wanted to just post newer tunes, but I'm all for more 80's Pop suggestions.

 

This has been my jam lately:

As we're on an 80's theme I thought i'd mention Kristine who is from Athens Greece.Melodicrockoz started a topic on her back in 2012 but I thought I would highlight her again as she has the 80's sound nailed.This takes you right back to the glory days.She released her Modern Love ep a while ago and all her solo stuff aswell as the other artists she collaborates with is pure 80's gold.
Check her out..........
