  1. I like reading stuff like this so...

    You can only post 1 video and name 1 band so the topic remains readable please.

    My username here gives it away obviously.

    I like the Pixies most.


    I saw them live last year as they passed by my town and what can I say.

    It was pure genius.

    Wish I was old enough to live through the period when they were at their peak.
  2. Doolittle was a great album. Over 20 years ago now. As good as Debaser was, still like Monkey's Gone to Heaven, Here Comes Your Man and a few others.

    They definitely influenced alot of other bands of that era as well.
  3. Crispy


  4. r-in


    The Who. That's it enough said.
  5. The Monkees, The Partridge Family and The Archies, with a tip of the hat to Josie and the Pussycats. I like to keep it real.

    The Monkees honestly made some great music. Lyrically, not too shabby either.

    "When the world and I were young, just yesterday,
    Life was such a simple game, a child could play.
    It was easy then to tell right from wrong,
    Easy then to tell weak from strong,
    When a man should stand and fight or just go along.

    I remember when the answer seemed so clear,
    We had never lived with doubt or tasted fear.
    It was easy then to tell truth from lies,
    Selling-out from compromise,
    Who to love and who to hate, the foolish from the wise.

    But today there is no day or night,
    Today there is no dark or light,
    Today there is no black or white, only shades of gray."
  7. PINK FLOYD -its tough to decide which album and songs but one that was memorable to me ANIMALS

    Song: Dogs

    You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need.
    You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street,
    You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed.
    And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight,
    You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking.

    And after a while, you can work on points for style.
    Like the club tie, and the firm handshake,
    A certain look in the eye and an easy smile.
    You have to be trusted by the people that you lie to,
    So that when they turn their backs on you,
    You'll get the chance to put the knife in.

    You gotta keep one eye looking over your shoulder.
    You know it's going to get harder, and harder, and harder as you
    get older.
    And in the end you'll pack up and fly down south,
    Hide your head in the sand,
    Just another sad old man,
    All alone and dying of cancer.

    And when you loose control, you'll reap the harvest you have sown.
    And as the fear grows, the bad blood slows and turns to stone.
    And it's too late to lose the weight you used to need to throw
    So have a good drown, as you go down, all alone,
    Dragged down by the stone.

    I gotta admit that I'm a little bit confused.
    Sometimes it seems to me as if I'm just being used.
    Gotta stay awake, gotta try and shake off this creeping malaise.
    If I don't stand my own ground, how can I find my way out of this

    Deaf, dumb, and blind, you just keep on pretending
    That everyone's expendable and no-one has a real friend.
    And it seems to you the thing to do would be to isolate the winner
    And everything's done under the sun,
    And you believe at heart, everyone's a killer.

    Who was born in a house full of pain.
    Who was trained not to spit in the fan.
    Who was told what to do by the man.
    Who was broken by trained personnel.
    Who was fitted with collar and chain.
    Who was given a pat on the back.
    Who was breaking away from the pack.
    Who was only a stranger at home.
    Who was ground down in the end.
    Who was found dead on the phone.
    Who was dragged down by the stone.
  8. I had to pick one. I think Repeater is the best album.
