Nobody seemed to think this one was funny yesterday. "Never, never, never give up!" is what I say.

How do Scottish men refer to a quicky?

First we'll embed some David Bowie music. Suffragette City is from his 1972 album entitled, to be thorough The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars. It's usually called Ziggy Stardust. This was a "B side", that was the song on the verse of the old 45 rpm "single" records (actually doubles) that was not supposed to be the intended hit song. Starman was the "A side". I've never heard it yet.

I really need to listen to that whole album, called one of the best Rock Operas ever, a type of concept album. Though not a rock opera as I understand the term, ELO's Time and The Eagles Desparado are my 2 favorite concept albums.

Oh, the punchline: "Wham, bam, thank you, lamb."

We have a commenter named "Ark Builder". That name reminded me of this Atlanta Rhythm Section song of the very same year but completely different style. It's from the first and self-titled album from the band. If you've never heard of this one, well, join the 99.999%. A slow ballad that'll grow on you Forty Days and Forty Nights is one of the more obscure songs from this nearly obscure (at this point) Southern Rock band.

That's Rodney Justo singing. After this album, he left the band and was replaced by Ronnie Hammond.

Great ending of that song for this end of our blog-week. We will get in those 2 movie reviews at some point, there'll be 2 posts at least on the ruin of South Africa and its inherent warning to Americans, and other stuff will surely pop up. Have a great Sunday, and thanks for reading and writing!

PS Bandcamp has them and there is a bomb page out of Brazil from the great DJ Telao (RIP) that has the electro with bass and rap.
Search with name and BlogSpot, Electrobuzz has the KEYP and tons of Robert Babicz plus many more.

PS: That's a great description of modern "music", No Name. A whole generation at least, has grown up without anything like the great music of the last, what, full century?

Paste in some links of your favorites from those Trance and Electro bands.

Thanks for the historic music trivia, Major Tom.

PS Tip of the hat to the greatest Scot ever Sean Connery!
I made mp3 of the 50 greatest 007 quotes from him that I will play with various Bond movie songs for morale upkeep.
Boards of Canada are from there as well.
It is two brothers masterful at sampling a soundtrack that you heard in your childhood while imagining what the future would be like is how one reviewer put it.
Bowie was always fresh and never stale and able to change like a chameleon and Mick Ronson was a huge influence on many great guitarists.
He gave Stevie Ray Vaughan a huge boost by being on the Let's Dance.
Fun Trivia-Steve Jones of the Sex Pistols stole some equipment from Bowie's band at a studio on his rise to Never Mind the Bollocks.
Music, Music, Music, not Russia, Russia, Russia!

PS Mod the stuff I hear in cars or what youngsters in the family listens to is awful with girly teeny bop vocoder and leather cover on my gold helicopter with a harem of 35 hoes clown rap and the Mexican rap is the terribleness on steroids.
I'll listen to anything that moves me and finally opened up to some new country.
Trance and electro is one of the last things I checked out after online people told me to give it a listen.
Some favorites are Illektrolab, Umwelt, KEYP, Code Rising, but that rotation changes often.
Southern Rock faves would be Black Crowes and the Allman Brothers.

PS: I know about 60% of the musicians/artists you mentioned here, BStGwT. Since I like almost all of those, I figure I'd like the rest too.

The Wokandan music is very rhythmic and can make one trancelike perhaps. I don't think it's the kind of music that inspires, no.

PS I forgot about ARS for Southern Rock greats and legends.
Music helps you to never give up.
Ennio Morricone, Dire Straits, Bolt Thrower, Coffins (Japan), Electric Wizard (pre-2006), Fleetwood Mac (both versions), The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Judee Sill, The Smiths, Richard Wagner, Tina Turner, Shirley Bassey, Kool Keith, Boards Of Canada, Robert Babicz, these are a few of my favorites.
Metal is so great for that defiant zero F given spirit and there will never be great uplifting artistic music made in Wokanda.
