The Good Music Thread
 
Just for fun.... post here your favourite music vids / tracks. However, lets make a rule that you cannot post unless you make a critical comment about one of the previous entries, otherwise it just gets to be a long boring string of YouTube clips.

Starting off (don't forget, before you can post, you have to review one of the above!):

I'll play .........

Regarding Adele, certainly not my taste in music and tbh I couldn't stand hearing this song - total overkill - coupled with the fact that when she became well known, all you heard on the radio was "isn't it great that people with a fuller figure are getting exposure."

No, no it isn't - if you can sing you can sing - what the hell does it matter if you're fat or not. That really used to piss me off.

Then I saw her interviewed on Jonathon Ross and changed my opinion of her personally (I find her very funny), but her music :thumbdown: no thanks.

Ok here's my pick

Clicky on the little movie reel icon, 15th from the left. That produces a pop up box where you copy the link to your you tube video into. Job's a good 'un.

Regarding Adele - Rolling in the deep.

Nice song, sung with a powerful voice but shamefully let down by an amateurish video. Whoever edited that sequence together was really struggling to put Adele in a good light, and you can really tell. Zoom in, zoom out, pan, insert clip of dancer in the dust. Glasses of water? I had no idea what the song was about but if the there was a story to be told then, the video missed this opportunity. A fragmented, wasted opportunity.

Here's a WTF? video to contrast with:

Well, that was mildly disturbing, lol. Pretty good video all the same.

Here's my choice. I never get tired of listening to this:

Adele's song is so great that, for me, the video is irrelevant.

Some good music from 2012...

Couldn't understand AtlanticExpat's instruction? What little movie reel?

I believe I would like Adele if I had access to British radio, but she gets way too much airplay over here for me to be able to control my rage each time her songs, Pink's and Lady Gaga's rotate.

I like this one:



I like this version of it too:

When you are posting a reply, it is one of the icons just below the redo button above where you type your text.
