My birth year was a subpar one music. My favorite album is probably Eno/Byrne's My Life in the Bush of Ghosts or Bill Evans' You Must Believe in Spring. So... yeah.

Happy almost birthday, 30 feels like 29: restrained by a pandemic, with slight aches in your back and eyes from too much time on the computer.

I am finally putting together some pedals for my guitar rig, as I intend to start seriously recording music I've written this year. I'm now up to five pedals, and learning a lot about what I didn't know. I still can't make heads or tails of the delay pedal, but I'm enjoying the ability to play around with a lot more sounds. Current setup:

Crybaby Wah > Mosfet Fulltone Overdrive > Boss SB-1 Distortion > Memory Man Deluxe Delay > Ditto+ Loop

Not sure what I want to get next/what would add the most to what I don't have, but I'm definitely getting into the weeds with it.

Thank you. I got diagnosed with costochondritis in my sternum last September and the soreness makes feel so old sometimes. But otherwise I'm mentally doing well with the upcoming change. The twenties are a bad deal; a lot of work, anxiety and insecurity for less money and respect. I'm hoping my thirties are a lot more peaceful and satisfying now that some pieces are falling into place.

In my experience, you spend it stuck in the house because of a global pandemic. Hopefully yours goes differently.

Some great songs from 1981:

















It's not as stacked as 1991, but pretty damn good all the same.

Come on, now. The Queen is Dead is twice as better as anything from 1981. You also have Graceland and The Color of Spring. And freaking Lifes Rich Pageant.

so 29 is just like 28

I feel you on the aches and pains and bullshit 20s, though early 20s were the best because none of that shit mattered and there were no aches and pains.

well that entirely depends on if you count "9 to 5" as a song from 1980 or 1981.

Thanks, LM.

I like the Kraftwerk and The Cure songs, and Gloria of course. I've always found Genius of Love fun, but I have no idea about Tom Tom Group. Might need to check out - were they a one hit wonder?

The Youth of America and David Sylvian songs were nice discoveries. I need to dig into Sylvian more.

The Laurie Anderson song... not so much. Seems like she really liked the vocoder on her microKORG .

Still feel like 1981 was not that great, particularly compared to its immediate neighbors. 1980 had Remain in Light, Closer and Boy. 1982 had Thriller, 1999, The Dreaming and Pornography, to mention just a few.

Dude(s), wait for another 10 years. Just over the last 3 months I barely avoided knee surgery and now have to go for hernia surgery. Getting old is not fun.

Edit: though speaking from experience, my 30s were much much more fun than my 20s.

Edit2: early happy birthday, LM.

Tom Tom Club was side project of Talking Heads! In many ways it ushered in their Speaking in Tongues era.

I highly recommend digging into David Sylvian's discography. You would really like Brilliant Trees and Secrets of the Beehive. Great contemplative late night/early morning music for when the whole world is quiet, much like Talk Talk.

Wipers are such a good band and Greg Sage is a gem of a songwriter. I feel like they would have fit really well on GAF's last DI list.

Wow, my brain just exploded with the Tom Tom Club/Talking Heads connection. Will definitely check them out - and David Sylvian.

Happy early birthday, LM !

I was born in 1984, so my birth year was definitely a big one for music. Van Halen's 1984, Bruce Springsteen's Born in the U.S.A., Prince's Purple Rain ("Let's Go Crazy" was the #1 song the week I was born, in fact), to name but a few biggies.

And The Unforgettable Fire was released on October 1st, and I came along just a few short days later, on the 6th.

1971 is my favorite year in music history and I doubt that will ever change. The more time I spend discovering albums from it, the better it seems.

1984 here as well. In addition the ones you named, 1984 also has:

Metallica's "Ride The Lightning"
Queen's "The Works"(featuring Radio Ga Ga, Hammer To Fall, It's A Hard Life, and I Want To Break Free),
Husker Du's "Zen Arcade",
REM's "Reckoning",
Depeche Mode's "Some Great Reward"(featuring People Are People, Blasphemous Rumors, and Master And Servant)
The Smiths' Self-titled debut AND "Hatful Of Hollow"
Julian Lennon's "Valotte"
The Replacements' "Let It Be"(haven't heard this one myself)
Madonna's "Like A Virgin"(featuring the title track and Material Girl),

Also some iconic songs even if their respective albums might not be:

Foreigner's "I Want To Know What Love Is",
REO Speedwagon's "I Can't Fight This Feeling",
Pat Benatar's "We Belong",
Nena's "99 Luftballons",
Steve Perry's "Oh Sherrie",
Night Ranger's "Sister Christian",
Tina Turner's "What's Love Got To Do With It",
Scandal's "The Warrior",
An early version of A-ha's "Take On Me", though the final version everyone knows wasn't until 1985.,
Cyndi Lauper's "Time After Time" was a single in 1984, even though its album was in 1983,
Huey Lewis & The News' "The Heart Of Rock & Roll" was a single in 1984, even though its album was in 1983,
Eurythmics' "Here Comes The Rain Again" was a single in 1984, even though its album was in 1983

Some big movie songs too:

The Footloose theme,
the Ghostbusters theme,
Limahl's "NeverEnding Story" theme,
Joe Esposito's "You're The Best" from The Karate Kid
Stevie Wonder's "I Just Called To Say I Love You" from The Woman In Red

I often think that 1984 is my favorite year of music.

I can't hate, though, my birth year had my second favorite album of all time in it, so that's good (1987 / Joshua Tree).
