Music! Just the best, country and the classics
« on: January 10, 2017, 09:10:13 PM »

This thread is somewhat different to the other music threads, because unless its country or the pre-80's classics nothing else gets in the bar here if it was after 1982! Rock, pop, country, yeah all that.

Warning! Post anything after that and it WILL be trashed.  <P

This one gets a lot of play on the radio in Canada, on account of Neil Young's involvement

That is classic stuff, I've never heard that one before, though I do know him and his old band. What was the relevance of the song?


I have loved this since I can remember as a kid, I'm sure Mum used to sing it for me  <3

It was about the Kent State massacre in 1970, where the Ohio National Guard fired at a crowd of student protesters and ended up killing 4 of them.


I don't really know much country music, so I'll stick to classics. Here's my favourite Beatles song:

More Johnny Cash!



And Krusty's version of it...



While I'm in the genre of old guys with guitars, here's Stompin' Tom Connors:



And now I remember I actually do know a proper country song. I know this one because it was in that old movie, Platoon:

A bit older than '82 but still a good country song.

^ Troy that's the point :D anything older than 82 and Alabama! Yesh! I have that album on CD.

Humon, I think most regular people who are not especially fans of country often don't realise that certain songs come from that genre. Talking to Mum and Dad over the weekend about music in general, they told me that back in the 60's and up until FM in the late 70's there was no such thing as separate stations for styles of music, not here at least (except for classical) Dad said he was at sea once when A boy name Sue knocked Hey Jude off from the #1 spot :D

 One topic that I am pursuing in my studies (thinking of doing a BA in music history) is Motown. It was an era on its own.

 possibly one of the best groups from that period

Johnny Horton. "Sink the Bismark.", and for those of you wanting relief from the heat. "Springtime in Alaska."
