3.always wanting to know what love is.

Didnt really like them much.

I was only blurting out I want to what love is the other day. It's one of those songs that really highlights the worst qualities of my voice.

Just to add, Cold as Ice was one of my favourite songs as a youngin. Yet I don't think I've ever listened to a full Foreigner album.

A girl I actually liked made a move for me when "IWKWLI" spattered out of the nightclub speakers. One of the few times as a single bloke that I let my principles get in the way of naked gymnastics. I absolutely cannot bear that AOR Toto/Foreigner/REO Shitewagon rubbish. Even Cold as Ice has that ghastly, overprocessed guitar sound that leaves me, er, cold.

:shock: You didn't dance with her because you didn't like the song?
Seriously?

lol

No sexual relations because it was Foreigner? You've PULLED a new low.

Oh I agree with REO, but Toto no way. You could write a thesis on why Rosanna is one of the most complex songs ever written about a female. Let's see Hawkwind pull that off eh?

We know the only thing Hawkwind are capable of pulling off. :lol:

Does that go for 'Boston' too bass? and 'Supertramp' ?
'I said no to Pamela Anderson cos she asked me to dance while 'Lady in red' was playing'.
i wouldn't care what was playing!

Anyone see BBC4 channel the other night? all about 'Stiff' records?
i didn't know Stiff released an LP called 'The wit and wisdom of Ronald Reagan' and it was an LP of silence, nothing on it, and it cost the same as a standard LP too. :lol:
They were the days. you would never get away with it now. :lol:

lol...

THE MAN HAS PRINCIPLES

I remember the "Wit and Wisdom of Ronal Reagan" record. I didn't think it cost the same as a regular album though. I could be wrong...

Yeah, the Stiff Nights on BBC4 were quite entertaining, although they did paint a rather rose-tinted picture. The only person they showed making any negative comments was good old Wreckless Eric. I've heard his Stiff rants before - he has quite an acerbic wit.

They needed to show MORE Wreckless Eric, MORE of The Damned (the one clip they showed in its entirety was from their Chiswick Records days!), MORE Devo, and LESS Elvis bloody Costello and The Pogues. What the hell was the deal with The Pogues? Bloody diddley-diddley-dee music. It just leaves me cold. If I want to hear that dirge I could walk into an Irish theme pub. Which I don't.

The Kursaal Flyers! Blimey! I thought they were quite good actually. All I knew of them before was that "Little does she know / That I know / That she knows..." record. The narrative of the song took place in a launderette, as I recall.

A couple of the Kursaals come from Canvey Island, Canvey also spawned The Feelgood's and i think a few of Eddie and the Hot Rods, lot of creativity in the air on Canvey, they call it the Canvey Delta round here.
Are we all wearing rose tinted specs or were there a hell of a lot of great bands around in 1978/79 ??
The great thing about Stiff was nothing was over-produced, those records were a million miles from Boston/Chicago/Toto, and they have stood the test of time.
