    The Wounded

    One of my favourite songs of them, 'Atlantic', live in Krefeld, Germany. Come on guys, get in the studio and don't let us wait another 13 years!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Gazpacho

    It's been a bit quiet around this great Norwegian band. After their last (very dissapointing) album, I couldn't find much about what they were up to. Now I found out they were doing a Nightwish-like cruise show/tour. I wonder if they were just relaxing and if they have left that ship........... It was organized in February, so it must have been in the Caribbiean or so, maybe Mediterranean Sea. A video of one of their gigs at sea......it was called Cruise To The Edge.

    DeWolff

    The second song from their new album 'Tascam Tapes'...........is called 'Blood meridian I'.

    Within Temptation II

    @Mainshow Hi there, They WERE the main act in Valencia and the performance was much longer, but there is very little good recordings from that concert. They opened for Iron Maiden in Paris a few days later. As all WT dvd's-releases go, you get a LOT for your money, but that Silent Force release is just ridiculous........hours on hours of footage of that tour with the JAVA-island (bloody brilliant!!!) as the cherry on the cake or should I say Schwarzwalder Kirsch.... One thing I learned from that dvd is, that their former drummer Stephen did not want to eat ANY vegetables. No wonder he looked so 'Pale'. Sharon must have written that song title with him in mind! Also, for what you get, the dvd is cheap as chips when you buy it nowadays!

    Within Temptation II

    @GhostHell They opened before for Iron Maiden during the 'Silent Force'-tour. At least once in Paris. It's on the Silent Force-extra's-dvd. I think it was after that mini-tour in Spain with that special performance in the Valencia railway station. Sharon looked radiant and exquisite that night!!!

    Nemesea

    I'm absolutely digging this song by them!! It's gorgeous and of highquality.........!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's called 'Heavyweight champion'. It reminds me a lot of The Dreamside.

    Songs You Are Currently Addicted To!

    Pure via the 'Beste zangers'-performances of Floor, I followed a recommendation to one of the earlier years. Now, I don't like Eminem, I despise rap, but this is so enjoyable addictive. A mezzo-soprano doing a rap song and you can understand the lyrics.......!!!!! Now that must be a first too! It's so impressive the way she raps without noticeable pauses and loud breathing. It's getting used to in the beginning, but halfway you can't sit still anymore............very well done Maria Fiselier!!! I think everybody was impressed, also the Eminem-lovers reading the comments. Another jewel, a bit lost amongst Floor's contibutions, was this cover by Henk Poort..........'Despacito'. Makes you quite happy hearing it...............

    The Floor thread

    @Eilenna Freja is her only no.1 ???? Poor Hannes! @Figment-of-me Her almost professional football career...............never heard about that one. I suspect, given her posture, she might have been an excellent keeper (most modern female keepers are still way to small) or a warrior/amazone like top striker...........'don't mess with Floor when she tries to score Add a bit of Ghost Love and you know why she loves doing and singing 'Ghost love score'.........

    Movie Recommendation Thread

    Okay, now one of the best known and loved British comedy series of all time. In many UK polls, taken over the last 30 years, this series comes out on top with a rather large gap to no.2. It has been on repeat on almost every country since its end in 1979, that I assume there aren't many people that haven't seen it. Maybe the younger generation, because they're swamped with horrible American so-called funny series on tv. We're ofcourse talking about the one and only FAWLTY TOWERS. It's strange, but I always had the feeling that it did run for years and years, but there are only 12 !!!!!!! episodes of 30 minutes! Created between 1975 and 1979. Must be, because the endless re-runs I came across on different foreign and national channels. Here is the setting: Fictional hotel 'Fawlty Towers' is based in Torquay on the English south coast. Owners are Basil Fawlty and his very bossy wife Sybil. Basil is a rude and tense character, while Sybil would make any man completely nuts. Other important characters are the sensible chambermaid Polly and the hapless Spanish waiter Manuel. The brilliance of this series is, that out of very normal situations, these can and do into the most complicated and intense happenings, which mix all kind of prejudices, assumptions, misunderstandings and basically fear for Sybil into this hilarious soup of funny situations. One warning though.............you need to understand and appreciate British humor. Basil (John Cleese) came up with the idea when he stayed at the Gleneagles Hotel with the Monty Python-crew. The owner, Donald Sinclair was very eccentric, snobbish, stuffy and considered his guests as a mere hindrance. John Cleese himself wrote the script for the series, together with Connie Booth (Polly the chambermaid). They married at the start of the first series, but were divorced at the start of the second series! I just bought the complete series for the third time (gave away the other 2) at a recycling shop last week for 2,50 and this time I'm going to keep them till I die!!!

    Cover songs

    'Radar love', generally considered to be the ultimate driving song. has been covered more than 500 time by famous and less famous people. It was used by Bill Clinton in his election campaign in 1992 and is seriously funny, covered by Homer Simpson...........

    The Continueing 10's

    Got a tip from a friend about this band and song. Never heard of them before (although they are Dutch and exist since 2012). It has an attractive vibe to it and it's great, because it's something very different. My Baby (horrible band name though) with 'Remedy'.

    Leonard Cohen

    My heart crumbled to pieces and was overcome by waves of tears listening to this song and watching the video............ @Cristermo Thanks for posting. I do miss him a lot.......despite the hundreds of songs I can play of him.......just the thought of him not being around us anymore. Some people just don't get what Cohen is about............ Could be filmed on Mount Baldy.
