Great songs heard on radio


#1433

True, but plenty of clones have at least a modicum of success (think Tori Amos v Kate Bush).


#1434

Fight For Ourselves - Spandau Ballet

I’m streaming Radio 2 from Abu Dhabi right now whilst watching the cricket test on FOX Sports from that location.

I totally forgot that song ever existed.


#1435

That song gets an airing occasionally on the Mechie Show.

I don’t remember it when it was first released, having only discovered it on a Spandau Ballet compilation CD some twenty years ago. It’s one my favourite tunes from them.


#1436

Yes Spandau Ballet had so many great songs yet most stations just play True or Gold.


#1437

Comfortably Numb - Pink Floyd :+1:
Once again on Gold 104.3’s ‘Totally 80s’ segment tonight, where they play some more adventurous tracks.


#1438

Sweet Seasons - Carole King (1972) - on MeTV FM 87.7 in Chicago. They don’t stream online but they list the song currently playing on their website.


#1439

Montego Bay - Allniters

Just played on FUN Digital Sydney.

Haven’t heard that for a while!

Kind of takes me back to when I used to hear it on 2SM back in the early to mid 1980s (being one of their digital stations).


#1440

Julian Lennon - Saltwater
Just played on 3GG Gippsland.


#1441

Wishing Well - Terence Trent D’Arby :+1:
Played on ‘The 80s’ Digital tonight!
Unfortunately it was followed by New Sensation by INXS :-1:


#1442

I like all of Terrence Trent Darby’s hits in the late 80s👍


#1443

Mull of Kintyre - Paul McCartney on Cruise 1323’s Living in the 70s last Sunday night. Paul’s biggest post-Beatles hit, but one that is rarely played anywhere these days. I was singing along to it when it played!


#1444

People don’t like new sensation?


#1445

I just think it’s overplayed on radio. I blame Target too.
There are other INXS songs I prefer.


#1446

I used to think it was ok but it’s been flogged to death now I can’t stand it personally


#1447

For me, any of:
Stay Young
Just Keep Walking
Dancing On The Jetty
Bitter Tears
Shine Like It Does
This Time
Beautiful Girl
Elegantly Wasted

All great underplayed INXS songs.


#1448

Yep all those are better. Love This Time in particular.


#1449

At 3:15 NZDT today (1:15 AEDT), Radio Hauraki played one of my personal favourites, My Chemical Romance - Welcome to the Black Parade

In case youre wonderimg, I’m in Auckland this weekend running a marathon tomorrow.


#1450

Reasons by John Farnham on SWR.


#1451

Haven’t heard that for a long time.


#1452

Shakedown - Bob Seger

Now Playing on the Super Radio FM Network (via GGG Gunnedah for me tonight).

Haven’t heard that on the radio for a long time!
