U CANT KEEP US UNDERDOGS DOWN ...we broke a record once b4 n we can do it again
COM ON MY NITTY GRITTY P!NK FAMILY LETS BREAK ANOTHER RECORD
Mr. R. Gibb passed away a few days ago at the age of 63. Let's pay a little tribute to the late hitmaker of the family business called The Bee Gees and also for a whole lot of other artists - including himself as a solo artist.
Bee Gees - You Win Again (1987)
Bee Gees - This Is Where I Came In (2003)
And finally a song that the Bee Gees didn't write themselves. It was written back in 1960 for the Everly Brothers ... but even back then the Bee Gees were performing(!) ... But it was Nazareth who really immortalized this song. Most people only remember their (or Roy Orbison's) version.
Robin Gibb - Love Hurts (Live 2003)
And now for something completely different...
Vamp's 2nd biggest hit, I think.
Transvision Vamp (1989)
Zep's 1973 album "Houses of the Holy" contained a great number of 'overlooked' songs. This one is a short one - almost a ballad in the traditional sense - even with a country'ish slide guitar.
Led Zeppelin - Tangerine (1973)
Gossip's frontwoman Beth Ditto seems to have made som people angry because she doesn't mind exposing herself despite her overweight figure. I wonder why so many people in the world's fattest nation feel the need to rant over this talented performer?
Gossip - Move In The Right Direction (2012)
And finally - a request (more or less)
This might not be the most solemn and emotional song in Pink's catalogue, but it has never been on the Singalong before...
Pink - It's All Your Fault (Live in Oz 2010)
Happy weekend, everyone.
(No offensive text in this signature field from now on)
Hello to all - hope everyone is well.
Thankyou Kasper! Blackfingernails, Red Wine is brillaint live. And Rolf is a classic. And can you flag a future post by Norman Gunston for Punchy Also for future, can you post a song by Men at Work for Greg Ham and something from Crowded House for Peter Jones.
Oh....and anything from that artist P!NK, 'cos she's quite good too
Hey, kaspin, indapink, pinkdisciple, pinkstralian, netty! Look. I went away, and now look who is back.... (Maybe, I should go away more often, since people pop up when I am absent).
So, yes, indapink!! Thank you for the wishes!! Commencement is actually tomorrow. So happy shock is my state of mind. Glee will follow, and then job search depression. Kinda a roller-coaster.
Kaspin, I'm enjoying Rolf Harris and the Beatles Kangaroo Thang. I'm a big Beatles fan. So seeing that made me happier, too.
love is the rhythm/ you are the music/ you get what you're given/ it's all how you use it....
'tis Saturday, and it has been a whole month since I posted the latest Singalong, so here's a big one to make up for some of the immense sense of loss and emptiness you must've felt.
Donna Summer (1948-2012) died a couple of days ago.
Let's celebrate her with this 1977 live recording - obviously not with the original live audio, but a great video nonetheless - if you're into electronic disco. Giorgio Moroder and Paolo Bellotte wrote this trance-like piece that took disco to 'strange new places'...
Donna Summer - I Feel Love ('Live' 1977 HQ sound)
Like other famous American disco divas, Donna Summer had a religious background, which kinda contradicted the highly erotic and 'bodily' music they recorded. Traditional religious hostility towards the very same gay people, who more than anyone else have kept disco alive and celebrated women like Gloria Gaynor and Donna Summer as 'divas' didn't make things less complicated to these ladies.
We've had The Black Keys on the Singalong once before, but here's another little gem that might get stuck on your mind.
The Black Keys - Little Black Submarines
I just got a 'KZ' haircut, so I'm not the target audience for this song, I guess.
Black Mountain - The Hair Song
And here's a REQUEST from Down Under...
A young Rolf Harris (look him up lol) dragging The Beatles through one of his daggy Australian singalongs sometime in the early 1960s... From a live radio broadcast.
Rolf Harris & The Beatles - Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport
Another Australian tune - somewhat newer than Rolf Harris' big hit and more in the vein of Coldplay with a hint of Depêche Mode . PD requested this one. Wikipedia says they're from East Fremantle - a Perth suburb.
Eskimo Joe - Black Fingernails, Red Wine
And now another - almost new song (notice the rhythm which is similar to "I Feel Love") by a band you probably didn't know still existed: Shakespears Sister. The soprano Marcella Detroit left the band in the late 1990s, but Siobhan Fahey went on, and this ain't bad...
Shakespears Sister - It's A Trip (2010)
And now a request by our dear 'lost' friend, El Jay, from Hartlepool UK... The latest video by her sexiness, Ms. Cheryl Cole.
Cheryl Cole - Call My Name (2012)
We're not done with the soft pop yet. Here's Donna Lewis' only hit from 1996. You won't recognise it until you hear the chorus after 1½ minute.
Donna Lewis - I Love You Always Forever (1996)
And finally another 1996 hit: A reprise... Pulp's hit "Common People"
Pulp - Common People (1996)
And remember this: The Singalong never dies!
wow ,new posts i gotta admit that i didn't look on this page every day the last weeks, because there have been so many times when nothing happened - i even had 2 think about my password for a moment - or maybe first signs of dementia ?
Who the f*** is Rolf Harris
And the Hansi Hinterseer video or whatever: "Leider ist dieses Video, das Musik von SME enthält, in Deutschland nicht verfügbar. Die GEMA hat die Verlagsrechte hieran nicht eingeräumt.
Das tut uns leid." - well, i'm not so sorry, otherwise i would get nightmares
haha and before i would start dreaming of a date with him i'd rather become gay
How r u all? I wonder when we'll finally get the new album , i don't wanna wait any longer now and i'm very excited about the style of the songs ...
+++I don't feel like coming down, no I don't
I don't feel like hiding out, so I won't
I can't turn the volume down, so I sit here in this
Chaos and piss ++++
oi any1 around or wat
get bent poepy dated indeed im a norman gunston fan also flashpants gets very very excited when i hav a drink with my new straws but only one prob mmmmmmmmmmm they r wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy 2 small 4 me 2 use
remember the triangle
dr doris the living legend
pinkrawks/dippo can get bent but i love poepy/dipclit
Yes, Punchy did ask him to get out his wobble board and, 'Tie me Kangaroo Down Sport."
... And I gotta admit that Rolf Harris is quite a looker. No wonder Punchy fell for him.
... Although I'm sure that Netty feels the same way about Hansi Hinterseer, although she can only dream about dating a guy like that.
Hi Kasper...and Linda!!!!!
Well it's nearly approaching three years...yes three years since the wife performed here in Perth for the Funhouse Tour. So in honour (or memoriam) of that anniversary, perhaps something from the setlist or album.
Um...who else. Maybe some other home grown Perth talent like Eskimo Joe, John Butler Trio and Jebediah. Oh....and just for Punchy....something from Rolf Harris! I think they dated once
I guess it's time for a new batch of Singalongs ... Any requests?
Hey there Bre!
Good to see your graduation is finally here! Bet you'll be pleased to see the back of all that studying, eh? Good luck with the job hunting
Official P!nkian >> 'P!nk's Panty Hoe!'
# Amen! Long Live P!nk #
Don't mess with WELLARD
I is here now.
I'm good, Evergreen. Don't know where everybody else is? Yeah, it's kinda silent here.
i am fine. And you?
Where is everyone?
Hey, Evergreen. Wasup? Yeah, it's quiet around here. Kaspin is usually around. But he hasn't been in this thread since April, looks like.
Anyhoo, how are ya?
Oh, and welcome to the Pinkdom, Allane!! You're gonna like it here. We one big wuvvly family.
So, hey peeps! Just Bre checkin' in here!!! Been busy, but that's the story. That's always the story...with me. Graduating on the 20th of this month from University. At last. Then the job hunt officially/crapishly begins.
Happy that Pink sent that note in April. She's on the June 2012 cover of Cosmopolitan ( for the second time) here in the states. Gorgeous glam mama as ever. Cute pic of her with Willow on the beach inside.
Can't wait for the new record to land!!!!! Pink's also out in a movie this year. People already know about that, I'm guessing, so I must be reciting old news.
Does anyone here think that Cosmopolitan is the equivalent of Playboy magazine = only for women?
The whole mag, (with the exception of our lady) is just dudes in nude, and sex, sex, sex. Wonder why we are so dang focused on it...when we females rarely reach that place when doing it. Just sayin'.
Oh, well. I only got the mag for Alecia. The rest is absolute hogwash.
Anyhow, greetings and <3 from the USA!!!
Today's Singalong is dedicated to Steve Marriott - one of the most gifted rock vocalists in rock history.
Small Faces - I'm Only Dreaming (1967)
Humble Pie - Black Coffee (Live 1973)
Peter Frampton on guitar here...
Humble Pie - I Wonder (1972)
And a pure love ballad ...
Humble Pie - You're So Good For Me (1972)
And finally a solo work. Steve remained active throughout his career despite alcohol abuse, and he actually played his last concert (in good shape) only two months before he died in a fire at his house on April 20th 1991 caused by a cigarette and a drunk Steve.
Humble Pie - Stay With Me
Enjoy your week, ladies and gentlemen.
Have been missing for a while, but we are back! Thanks for birthday wishes. I did have a headache Kasper...or...for arguements sake, lets call it a hangover. Too many Singapore Slings! Or as you might call them, Singalong Slings. Good posting - Save My Life indeed!
Welcome Allane. We flew over Indonesia but didn't see you. We did hear P!NK playing, but weren't sure if that was you or our inflight entertainment
Hi Allane,welcome here
Save my life is 1 of my fav P!nk songs and I also spent a lot of time searching for a video with better quality some time ago -as the studio version isn't available here...i wasn't very successful either
haha "send me an angel" reminds me of teenage days, all girls loved that song
and I like Alphaville too
but I haven't looked at the videos yet, I'm just watching "Avatar" in TV, I'm just glad that I didn't spend money for that movie in cinema,there r better films Happy feet is also on TV 2day btw
Despite har cool surface, Pink has always been good at 'melancholy blues'. This is a classic from the Try This era. She has only performed it live a few times, but these have crappy sound quality, so I picked the studio version for the Singalong...
Pink - Save My Life (2003)
But Freddie knew how to make it sound really saucy and classy (and more mature, obviously).
Queen - My Melancholy Blues (1977)
But George Michael is of course a true master of this discipline. Yet another hit (and an original music video) from his grandiose and impressive solo debut, "Faith" from 1987... I'm sure some of you can't stand this... Elton John could have sung this!
George Michael - Kissing A Fool (1987)
Well. I've had enough of melancholy, so here's a truly great song by the late Solomon Burke, who had his finest hour in the early 1960s. He was overshadowed by the legendary Sam Cooke, but from a vocal perspective he was just as impressive.
Solomon Burke - Cry To Me (1963)
And now a song from down under: Real Life is (was?) a new wave band from Melbourne. This was their breakthrough hit... More pop than 'classic' new wave if you ask me.
Real Life - Send Me An Angel (1983)
There are also a bunch of Germans in here, and I'm sure they all love Alphaville. No video for this one, sorry.
Alphaville - Lies (1984)
Sorry, but I'm only posting Singalongs randomly these days.
Just came back from an Easter trip to Dresden. What a great little city! The Neustadt is by far the most interesting part.
Such a shame Dresden got bombed to pieces during WW2 ... I assure you: I have never seen so much decadence materialized in jewellery and armoury!
But yep: Friggin' bloody cold again. Just when we thought spring had finally come.
HAPPY EASTER !!!!!
I wish u all a great weekend and don't eat + drink 2 much
it's more like winter here atm, i really hope that spring is gonna come back soon....some parts of Hessen even had a bit snow,wtf
The acrobatic stuff was really great, but not the most important thing for me....I just need her voice; seeing her back on stage and singing live would be enaugh
and maybe performing some of the "older" songs or some special b-sides song which I haven't heard at a concert yet
Let's see if she will still do acrobatics on her next tour...
i love pinks performances its all acrobatic stuff its so cool ive always wanted to go see her in performance
TA DA 1600 yayayyayay
1596:P soory CRUSTY didnt reah euro's post well
I guess no1 is able 2 read,lol.....u could have seen that it was dippos birthday on facebook , Kasper and Punchy: The naked 1 posted that the 500th singalong was almost 1 year ago,hahahha lmfao
Have a nice weekend every1
I can't wait for the new album now after she wrote the letter 2 the fans ......and maybe even a tour
I didn't know it was PD's birthday today, but ... Happy birthday, mate. I hope your headache is smaller than mine right now.
happy birthday DIPPO
happy 500 singalong euro oh wise and naked one
And here we go again with another Singalong...
Let's make it as camp as possible from the start...
"Apache" is an instrumental written by Jerry Lordan. It has been recorded by many people, but the first released version was recorded by British group The Shadows in June 1960.
In 1977, The Tommy Seebach Band recorded a disco-styled version and filmed an accompanying music video of "Apache". Set on a rocky hillside, it featured scantily-clad dancers adoring a grinning keyboard player. This version was successful in Europe and later became an Internet meme.
Tommy Seebach Band - Apache (1977)
Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark had their major breakthrough with this balled named after the infamous bomber plane that dropped the nuclear bombs over Hiroshima in 1945.
OMD - Enola Gay (1980)
And now for something very 'Nordic'...
Eivør Pálsdóttir (pronounced [ˈaivœɹ ˈpɔlsˌdœʰtəɹ]; b. 1983 in Syðrugøta, Faroe Islands) is a Faroese singer/songwriter with a distinct voice and a wide range of interests in many kinds of music from rock, jazz, folk, pop, to European classical music.
Eivør - Hounds of Love (2010)
David Grellier (b. 1979 in Nantes, France) is a French electronica musician and founder of the musical projects College (2005) and Valerie (2007). Under the stage name Mitch Silver, he is also a member of the electroclash band Sexy Sushi, active since 2004.
College featuring Electric Youth - A Real Hero ("Drive" soundtrack, 2011)
Happy Frigay, everyone.
I have already celebrated Singalong no. 500. That was nearly a year ago, but things have gone more quiet since then, and I've stopped posting every day for the same reason.
... But how many songs...?
About 1200 sounds like a reasonable guess
HA!!! Kaper, I may have asked you this before - but do you know how many songs you have posted in total?
Everybody deserves a second ... and a third ... chance, Dippo.
Princess Stéphanie Grimaldi of Monaco Kasper?? Your postings are diverse! Ironically, the Pope and I recorded, "Out of the Closet," which also ended our career
Hi Flo, hi Kasper
even facebook is boring 2day
no posts for more than 1 week
come on ppl where r u all?
Thanks Netty. Thank you all for your birthday wishes... Now I know why I need a Facebook acciunt. I love you guys.
