Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Oh, no.  I'm a fan of tribute bands.  I've actually seen a few and loved it.  But, I'm not sure that's what they are.....I just can't figure it out.  I mean.....I know my Robert Plant and the lead vocalist in this band is wearing the same type clothes, putting the same inflection in his voice, same stance, same head tilt, hairstyle, turns, etc. And the lead guitarist is doing a good job of a Jimmy Page performance too.  lol  The crowd loved it, but, I'm not sure if they know what Zeppelin looked and sounded like.   

The world can never get too much Zeppelin.  I thought Greta sounded really good. 

Even their song, When The Curtain Falls.......the title reminded me of When The Levy Breaks...lol.

I know about them because the peeps on the Led Zeppelin forum I hang out on seem to love them.  Can't say I'm familiar with their work, but watching this, it certainly is a lot like Zep.  A lot.  And yeah, that's not a bad thing, but still, you'd think they'd want to stand out on their own a bit.   A coworker went to see them last weekend and said the first part of the show was great, the end was great (I think they played the song they played on Fallon as the encore), but the middle of the show seemed to sound the same.  All the songs ran together.  He thinks because they're all so young, they need more experience in how to actually entertain an audience.  They have lots of talent.  Hope they can pull it all together.

There was an article written about Gwen Stefani and her public image (from No Doubt's earliest fame years onward) recently that I thought was absolutely spot on. Fair warning: the author, Anne Helen Petersen, often gets criticized for making her articles too long, and this one is certainly no exception (not that I have any room to talk); she also was criticized some months ago in the Everything Else Movies forum for an article she wrote about Arnie Hammer (full disclosure: I haven't yet read that one). However, I'm a huge fan of hers and love her work, and I think she did a great job here.

I used to really like Gwen Stefani, but over time she started to get on my nerves & now I can't stand her. She's still slogging that Harajuku crap, & all her songs are so "poor me". She just bugs me.

A very early version of the Eagles' most unusual song, "Journey of the Sorcerer". This is from a live show in Boston in June of 1975, before One of These Nights was even out.

(My favorite song by Pink is "Who Knew?", though. The lyrics are so bittersweet-I always get a bit choked up when I hear that one.) 

Man!  I'd say a year after being blindsided by the end of a 17 year friendship I heard the lyrics on a bus going home....and the tears started flowing, there was no way to act cool so I just let them flow.

Every...damned...lyric was exactly how I was feeling, even now it is hard to hear that song.

Hey, that's what music is for, right? Good way to help us let out our emotions. Hopefully the people on the bus were understanding. 

I'm sorry about the end of your friendship.

My all-time favorite P!nk song. And I like it whether she sings it full rock or acoustically. It’s just beautiful. 

 

Ok I freaking give up. The video is unavailable and I can’t get to delete and my browser keeps crashing because technology is great until it isn’t so I’m just going to leave this post as is. Beautiful song, great performance, I’m sorry about your friend ?.  Cheers.

Any 90s R&B fans? I don’t know why but I decided to go look for a live performance of Freak Like Me by Adina Howard and boy did I find it. I’m usually not creepy, but I gotta say, Adina had ass, ladies and gentlemen. Forget J. Lo and Beyoncé, and especially the clown butts of Nicki Minaj and Cardi B. 

Nice old-school performance:

Yeah, get well soon, Demi.

Speaking of which, I wonder: is Demi this generation's Christina, or this generation's Jessica Simpson? Showbiz kid, model-y good looks, problematic dad, not really sales titans but enough to qualify as pop stars, both their voices have muted gospel/Contemporary Christian qualities to them but as pop stars they switch between the breathy baby-voice Britney thing and the diva-esque high notes, both play The Game but are kind of awkward fits as pop stars, talented enough to do different genres but aren't really auteurs.

For fun, listen to A Little Bit by Jessica Simpson, especially if you're cleaning. Jessica gets off some decent high notes towards the end.

So George Ezra.  I have this feeling that I'd like most of his stuff 500% more if it had been done by Ben Lee.  Some of his stuff is Ben Lee-ish, and I don't really feel like his voice matches the music.

How the hell is Todd going to do a 'best of' list?  He didn't have many positive things to say about the music of 2018, not that I blame him.  I agree that music has  gotten pretty boring, in general.

One thing I've always noticed with him is that the less he mentions a current pop song on Twitter/during his show, the more likely it is to be on his best list. It's not a guaranteed theory, but there are definitely songs--some more embarrassing than others*--where I've noticed this with him over the years.

For one thing, I expect this list to be STACKED with Ariana songs, given how much he's liked her over the years, and this year she just fucking KILLED it. 

*My go-to example for this? "Birthday" by Katy Perry. Didn't breathe a word about it throughout 2014; it wound up on his best list. The Pollyanna in me kind of hopes he's forced to admit he likes "Whatever It Takes" by Imagine Dragons due to this theory, lol.

How did I never know there is a Spanish version of "Mickey" performed by Toni Basil? (Listening right now on the 1st Wave channel on SiriusXM.) So weird. The music is still earwormy, even if I only understand about a quarter of it. (Thanks, Spanish classes!)

It used to be on Spotify! I had actually forgotten about it until I saw your post, haha. But I think it was a bonus track on Toni Basil's greatest hits album or something like that, but it looks like her entire catalog has been removed from Spotify. Boo.

On another note, it's hilarious to hear this on the radio because SO many words have to be censored! (Also, Prince. Sniff.)

And in "you're getting old" news:

Today marks the 20th anniversary of the release of Britney Spears' debut album, ...Baby One More Time.

I was almost 10 when this album came out, and I am pretty sure she was only the second artist whose CD I ever owned, after the Spice Girls' first two albums.

I DID, however, have a copy of the girl group B*Witched's first album, except it was actually on a cassette tape!

I'm actually a few months older than Britney, herself, so...

Anyway, I remember hating this album when it first came out.  I thought Britney had a terrible voice, and I didn't like anything about it.  Then, over the years, I stopped expecting her to have a great voice, and just enjoyed her songs.   BOMT isn't my favorite album, though; if I had to choose, I'd go with Blackout, or possibly In the Zone.  It's hard to decide between the two.

I would've been 14 at the time this album came out. I don't recall ever owning the album itself, but I did at one point have a CD single with her "Baby, One More Time" song on it, plus a few other songs like "Autumn Goodbye", which I really loved. I want to say there was a cover of "The Beat Goes On" on there as well? 

Hard to believe it's been that long ago already.

Can someone explain to me what Ariana Grande is trying to say in "Thank You, Next"? I don't get it, all I can think of when I see that title is a deli counter. They hand you the sandwich & say "thank you" & then yell "NEXT" for the next person to help. I don't understand if the song is sarcastic, or she's really thanking people & yelling "next" for her next customer.

I think she's just trying to thank all of her exes for helping to enrich her life in one way or another, with "next" being her way of saying "bring on the future", whether it means there's another guy involved or not.

It's a very sweet sentiment, actually.

My tradition of questionable taste may have very well began with that cover of "The Beat Goes On", which closed the BOMT album. I didn't know about the Sonny and Cher version yet, and I listened to her cover like it was one of the big singles, lol.

I don't recognize the name "Autumn Goodbye", though. Here's the tracklist for the album:

Yeah, like I said, that song wasn't on the album itself, just on a CD single. Here's the song, if you're curious :):

 

As for "The Beat Goes On", I was familiar with the original, simply 'cause my mom likes Cher, so I'd hear that song sometimes growing up. But yeah, I liked Britney's version, too, and I seem to remember my parents being a bit confused at the time as to why she decided to cover that song, of all songs :p. 

Fegarding your comment about "questionable taste", ha, hey, you'll get no judgment from me there! I have a very high tolerance for a lot of music that some out there would deem "cheesy" or "lame" or whatever, so I get ya :D.

I was 15 when BOMT was released. Definitely not my favorite album of hers (that would be Blackout). It was cheesy as hell, but perfect for the pop musical landscape at the time. I actually remember when TRL introduced the BOMT video for the first time.

My favorite song on the album:

I think Britney looks gorgeous in this video, but then again, I am partial to dirty blonde/brown hair than yellow/white blonde hair.

@AgentRXS, ah, yeah, I remember that song, too! I liked it, too. I also loved "(You Drive Me) Crazy". And I always thought Britney looked quite pretty in the "Sometimes" video.

Speaking of Britney videos, it's not from this album, but I saw the "Lucky" video on MTV Classic earlier this week. I haven't seen that video or heard that song in years, but man, watching it recently honestly made me kinda sad, because man, talk about eerie foreshadowing regarding what happened to Britney a few years afterward.

I've poked my head into that thread and read some of the comments there sometimes. Country isn't a genre I follow all that deeply, but I know there's been a few artists mentioned in there that I'm familiar with, so maybe I'll think to comment at some point ).

Also, that link about birthday hits is neat! Here's all of mine for the date of October 6th:

1984: "Let's Go Crazy"-Prince

1985: "Oh, Sheila"-Ready for the World

1992: "End of the Road"-Boyz II Men

1993: "Dreamlover"-Mariah Carey

1994: "I'll Make Love to You"-Boyz II Men

I usually like everything Todd does, but I was disappointed in his 'best of' list, this year.  I know 2018 was not the strongest year for him to work with, but excluding Finesse by Bruno Mars, everything on that list sounded the same, to me, like all the artists were on Xanax.  Surely there were nine other hits that were slightly more interesting than the ones he chose.  Or maybe I just want to believe there were, because I'm old, and artists and songs seemed to have WAY more personality and punch than they do, now. *sigh*

If I listed the birthday hits from my birthday onward, I'd get carpal tunnel. (In my 40s, let's put it like that.) 😊 I stopped "recognizing" the songs fairly late on the list, though, so I guess I'm not ready for "GET OFF MY LAWN!" territory quite yet!

I hope you guys at least had some fun with it, without it making you feel TOO old! :)

There is another website which also tells you every number one song on your birthday from your birth year on, except in addition to the Billboard Hot 100, it also includes other charts, such as the Country charts, although at the moment it's not including the (admittedly few at this point) 2019 number ones in any genre--sorry, January babies. (Of course, you can find literally any of these statistics and more at Billboard's website, but that's beside the point, here.)

Mine, complete with fun comments...

1981 - Jessie's Girl by Rick Springfield (This song is creepy AF, but I still sing along with it when I hear it on the radio.)

1982 - Eye of the Tiger by Survivor (Meh.  It's fun, I guess.)

1983 - Every Breath You Take by The Police (Another creepy AF song. We're on a roll, here...)

1984 - Ghostbusters by Ray Parker, Jr. (Fun.  Still listen to this one, every Halloween.)

1985 - Shout by Tears for Fears (Not my favorite song of theirs.  That would be "Head Over Heels".)

1986 - Glory of Love by Peter Cetera (Eh...it's good, I guess.)

1987 - I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For by U2 (Nice.  Love U2.)

1988 - Roll With It by Steve Winwood (Prefer "Valerie".)

1989 - Right Here Waiting by Richard Marx (Nice voice, not that big a fan.  I have an embarrassing love for his duet with Donna Lewis, though.)

1990 - Vision of Love by Mariah Carey (I remember this one being EVERYWHERE)

1991 - (Everything I Do) I Do It for You by Bryan Adams (BLECH)

1992 - This Used to Be My Playground by Madonna (One of her worst songs)

1993 - Can't Help Falling in Love by UB40 (Not a bad cover, IMO.  I kind of liked UB40, even though they sucked.)

1994 - Stay (I Missed You) by Lisa Loeb & Nine Stories (Another song that was inescapable.  I had the single, but I left it in the sun, and it got completely warped.)

1995 - Waterfalls by TLC (The first CD I bought, with my own money.  I memorized the rap, even though they NEVER played it on the radio.)

1996 - Macarena (Bayside Boys Mix) by Los Del Rio (Pure cheese.  I love it.)

1997 - I'll Be Missing You by Puff Daddy and Faith Evans featuring 112 (I don't dislike this one as much as I used to, but I still don't *like* it.)

1998 - The Boy Is Mine by Brandy and Monica (Prefer Monica.  She was so much better.)

1999 - Genie in a Bottle by Christina Aguilera (I had this album, too.  It only had about four good songs on it, and this was definitely one of them.)

2000 - Incomplete by Sisqó (I remember "The Thong Song", but I don't remember this.)

2001 - Bootylicious by Destiny's Child (I work out to this one, all the time.)

2002 - Hot in Herre by Nelly (NO.  "Dilemma" is good, though.)

2003 - Crazy in Love by Beyoncé featuring Jay-Z (This one is fun.  I wish Beyonce would come out with another single like this, again.)

2004 - Slow Motion by Juvenile featuring Soulja Slim (Don't know what the hell this is.)

2005 - We Belong Together by Mariah Carey (I love Mariah, and I don't care who knows it.  One of my favorite albums, of hers.)

2006 - Promiscuous by Nelly Furtado featuring Timbaland (It took me a while to warm to this one, but now I like it.)

2007 - Beautiful Girls by Sean Kingston (Guilty pleasure, if only because I worked with someone who would stop working and dance to this song, whenever she heard it.)

2008 - I Kissed a Girl by Katy Perry (Oh, please.  She has MUCH better songs, than this one.  "Spiritual" is her best, IMO.)

2009 - I Gotta Feeling by The Black Eyed Peas (Lame.  The only song I like from The Black-Eyed Peas is "Shut Up".)

2010 - Love the Way You Lie by Eminem featuring Rihanna (SAD.  Good song, but SAD.)

2011 - Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO featuring Lauren Bennett and GoonRock (It's fun, but I didn't like those guys.  They were still better than 3OH!3, though.)

2012 - Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen (It took me a while to like Carly, but now, I love her.  I wish she got more recognition.)

2013 - Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke featuring T.I. and Pharrell (NEXT.)

2014 - Rude by Magic! (Dumb song, but harmless.)

2015 - Cheerleader by OMI (Ditto.)

2016 - Cheap Thrills by Sia featuring Sean Paul (Never liked this one.  I hate to sound like a hipster douche, but Sia was so much better before she collabed with everyone, and got big.)

2017 - Despacito by Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee featuring Justin Bieber (Meh.)

2018 - In My Feelings by Drake (Isn't he trying to groom Millie Bobbie Brown?)

By the way, this site has all the songs I posted above, but it also shows #1 songs by music genre (for rock, it only starts at 1981 for whatever reason in my case!), so if you want to see what else was charting on your birthday in another genre, take a peek!

Yep! I linked to that website too a few posts above, when I shared my country birthday number ones. :)
