‘Satellite’ by The Hooters
A cracking song in its own right, the accompanying music video, lampooning hypocritical Televangelist, was (and still is, IMHO) a thing of genius.
‘Das Model (Live)’ by Kraftwerk
Even though a) they’re German and b) I speak German, it sounds a little odd to my ear to hear Kraftwerk perform “Das Model” *in* German, because it was a huge hit in English, in the UK
‘Under a Glass Moon’ by Dream Theater
The first Dream Theater song I ever heard, ~1995, and it still blows my ears off :D
‘Honey’ by Lucy Ward
My current musical addiction? Anything by @LucyWardSings - she’s amazing, period. @amygahran - recommendation for you, for sure!
‘Killing in the Name’ by Rage Against the Machine
21 years on, but it still sounds so good, and so timely. I wish there were more bands making music with the anger of these guys
‘The Raven That Refused to Sing’ by Steven Wilson
A feast, for eyes and ears, from the incomparable Steven Wilson. The man is just ridiculously talented.
‘We Found Small Things’ by pomDeter
More majestic mashup magic from pomDeter - Blink 182 meets Rihanna, oh yes indeedy!
