    well, neither did i but it turns out that it is actually very much like spotify i haven't made up my mind about it yet though

    that's cool my dad used to always play them when we went away and so it's a bit of a holiday thing for me really

    i like most of their song but the best are good vibrations and surfin' usa

    i know what you mean but yes like when i find someone who's heard/knows of a band or artist, i'm like where have you been the whole of my life? :rofl: totally agree with you that the chameleons and the bunneymen are/were underrated... i even asked my mum/older people i know about them and they even haven't heard of them, even though they were from that era now that's bad, i mean really bad so bad it's awful... just makes me wanna cry sassking :sad:

    for which, chameleons or bunnymen? or both?

    yeah, will listen to more of their stuff at some point any recommendations?



    yeah, i saw it too and you'll never guess what? Amellia123 you might want to see this.... the reflex is my favourite song of all time, i swear. no seriously it was the one song that i used to love as a young girl haha (still love now haha ) my dad used to always, and i mean always used to play it in the car like all the time :love he used to play it in the evening usually coming back from my grandma's who lives a couple of hours away and it was usually late enough that my sister and i were quite tired and i always tried to say awake for this song, even if my eyes were closing on me... no matter what, i had to listen to it... it brings back so many memories :'
    (i seriously mean it when i say the favourite song of all time, but honestly i think it's the best in the whole wide world of music )
    Ah right I see

    Ah, that's cool I remember my dad playing The Beatles when I was younger. I particularly remember this
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGHQFjlsvCk

    Same here :rofl:

    I see Yeah that is, but ah well, we get to enjoy the greatness

    Ah sorry, The Bunnymen

    These are from the first album

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4nAi3GM1DA

    I won't accept if you don't like these because I like almost all of their songs :rofl: but no, fair enough if you don't

    I haven't listened to them loads but...

    Yep still at school I'm in Y13, what do you do?
    Hha ahh okay fair enough then :P Have you ever heard of Yazoo? Its basically the guy from Depeche Mode who wrote all the songs went on to form another band with a woman - they were rather good! The song 'Don't Go' is their best (I think!)
    Awesome!! :awesome: and yep! I'm not as good as I probably should be :giggle: though I can play a fair amount of songs :lol: I bet you actually really good! What is your favourite song to play?
    Sorry, that was bad wording on my part. The song 'Love is the Drug' used to be on the Debenhams advert a long time ago (its some pop song now :lol:) And (about The Clash) I don't know what that was even meant to say - I'm sorry (I cant even understand myself most days :lol:)
    Hahaha fear not - you have found another fan! :woo: Omg yes we totally should :lol:
    Ahhh right, The Hollies were a 60s band (kind of like The Beatles)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWNeUTFSmnc

    It was called The Rum Runner - had a funny triangular shaped bar :lol:
    Hahaha Ikr!! They had quite a few very good songs!

    Haha a link to The Hives live? Sure! They did 3 songs on that program....
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QQioCjYnbxw

    unfortunately, the other two are no longer available on youtube (as it would seem) but they also did Tick Tick Boom and Go Right Ahead

    Look who else was on the same Hootenanny!
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ck9s...yMbmH&index=14

    Yeah Planet Earth was their first single! Though the first song they wrote together was Sound Of Thunder And yep Dexy's Midnight Runners Where do you think the 'Runner' part came from?

    I totally agree, though I have been unofficially banned from requesting any 80s music (huge emphasis on Duran Duran) at the y13 leavers prom :rofl: Ikr! Its such a feel good song, I have been singing it all day in fact :lol:

    Amellia123 The only Hollies song I actually know is;

    :rofl: Yeah to be honest my attempt at trying to be funny failed there :lol: So never mind :rofl:

    Oh really? To be honest, I haven't heard an awful amount of his songs myself. I have one of his albums to listen to though. You've probably heard Like A Rolling Stone before. I like a song of his called Hurricane; It's about a boxer that got framed for murder. It's based on a true story actually It isn't on YouTube unfortunately though, so I can't send you it...

    Haha oh oops - sounds like the story of my life tbh :lol: :getmecoat:

    Yeah - says hes boring :rofl: though can see why people liked/do like his stuff. Ahhh I see, if you know which album its from ill listen to it (for some reason I seem to have ALL of the Bob Dylan albums from when I bought a used hard drive - so much free music!) And for some reason when I used to use iTunes, because most of the music I had wasn't genuine, it left me with all the Bob Dylan albums and Abba (yay) :rofl:
