Maybe next time include the genre and then I won't be killing you huh?

Point to note: I'm no fan of really much music (there are exceptions of course, but generally) before say 1960s, or really 70s. It was a bit of a trial to listen to most of your selections so maybe think more in terms of something I might better appreciate next time.

tl;dr no more music from when the world was black and white.
Do you share your account with someone else? Cause if so that person created a thread and called it "Classic Songs I Have Never Heard." Base on that title I thought the premise was giving "Classic" songs to either you or the other person who has access to the account that either of you haven't heard before.

Let me ask you this: If you never heard them before, then how would I know your reaction? You never reacted to them cause you never heard of them before, and you never shared that reaction you never had.

Do I have a crystal ball that sees into the future of possible things that never happened yet? No. I am working on the presumption that if I like these songs (actually love them) then another person would too. But in this case I am just posting them for you. In short I am believing I'm posting irresistible "Classic" songs that can't help but be like. But to much of my surprise you don't.

I was under the assumption you wanted to broaden both your knowledge and appreciation of music. I should be more under suspicion than you, cause I am totally convinced this is great stuff and you concocting conspiracies theories about me, telling me not to share R&B music, giving me music era limits. You're unbelievable.

review this:
EMF - Unbelievable


Aqua - Barbie Girl


Spice Girls - Wannabe

Come on guys, play nice! I don't think we should trash TH if he gets the genre wrong on music he doesn't much know about. I do that too, plus can't tell one instrument from another.

Well you should have posted obnoxiously large videos for me to see.

When I think up a good song I'll probably swap it for my rec because one Lady Gaga song is sufficient, isn't it? For me the thrill of this thread is to get TH to review a whole bunch of varied and weird stuff he's never considered before.

Title: “Tell Me What You Want”
Artist: Zebra
Taken from: Zebra
Genre: Hard Rock
Year: 1983
Suggested by: Plankton
Familiarity: Zebra-o, I mean zero
Comments: Great punchy rocker in the mould of the likes of Asia or Whitesnake, lots of power, great pumping melodies, great singer… just great all over. Bring on those stripey horses!
Rating: 10/10
Resultant interest in album: 100%
Resultant interest in artist: 100%

Title: “Whos Behind the Door”
Artist: Zebra
Taken from: Zebra
Genre: Hard Rock
Year: 1983
Suggested by: Plankton
Familiarity: As above
Comments: I read that Zebra started doing covers of, among others, Yes, and it shows in this track. Almost an acoustic opening, very laid-back, reminds me a little of “I’ve Seen All Good People” or something similar. Kicks up nicely then, but the vocal is much more restrained than in the other of their tracks I just listened to. Nice versatility in the vocal. In the video they kind of do The Verve and also recreate the end scene from The Seventh Seal. Sort of. Another great track. You know me so well, man!
Rating: 10/10

I am not trashing TrollHeart. I think it is the other way around. He asks for Classic songs, I give him the best I can think of, and he's the one who doing the trashing by berating them - low balling their scores and misrepresenting the song's genres.
