    Set you have a nice collection of vinyl there I think people don't realize Phil Collins and Genesis was playing music almost as long as the stones I know the stones started early to mid 60s but Phil Collins and Steve Hackett I think started late 60s early 70s..neat selections

    you're kidding?

    there IS no stones without keith

    here is a number that is in my top ten all-time and is the best-5-and-half-minute-effort-that- should-have-been-ten-minutes ever done...

    ...the solo at 2:15 should have jammed on for at least another 2 minutes to an incredible crescendo before mick insinuates, "well it just goes to show things are not what they seem"...so too the way too brief ending should have been building for at least another two minutes before fading to forever:

    but wha'ddo i know?

    You do realize I was referring to the well-documented history Keith RIchards has had (ab)using drugs (including alcohol) and other unhealthy lifestyle choices he has probably made over the years. Based upon those occurrences, I'm shocked he's still alive. I'm not questioning his desire to continue as a member of the Rolling Stones. I'm just stunned he's even around to make that determination.

    My picks for Sunday, September 17, 2017: Songs by artists whose native language is *not* English and still hit the US charts.

    Waterloo -- ABBA (Sweden). This is the song that started the group on its way to international superstardom. The video is from the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest (Song for Europe). The liner notes included in ABBA Gold ((Greatest Hits) indicate the group had entered a song for an opportunity to become Sweden's entrant to the 1973 Eurovision Song Contest but it wasn't selected, so back to the drawing board (recording studio) for another go. The following year (1974), ABBA performed Waterloo, which "effortlessly wiped out the competition" and was selected as the winner of the Song for Europe. The song topped charts around the world but not in the US (#6) nor, ironically, in the group's home country, where it was "only" #2. The rest, as they say, is history.




    Still Loving You -- Scorpions (Germany). How this song peaked only at #64 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1984 is beyond me. Perhaps it's 6+ minute length was a bit too long for radio, but that didn't seem to be a problem for Hey Jude or American Pie.




    Sukiyaki - Kyu Sakamoto (Japan). This song hit #1 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in 1963, the only song in Japanese to ever top the Billboard charts in the US. Sadly, the singer was killed when the plane he was on -- Japan Airlines Flight 123 (Boeing 747) -- crashed shortly after takeoff on August 12, 1985, killing over 500 crew and passengers.




    Eres Tú -- Mocedades (Spain). This song (sung in Spanish) was entered in the 1973 Eurovision Song Contest and finished 2nd to Tu te reconnaîtras, a song in French performed by French singer Anne-Marie David.-- who was representing Luxembourg. Oh yeah -- that year's contest was held in Luxembourg. Rumor has it one of the contest judges had been the time keeper for the 1972 Olympic men's basketball game between the USA and USSR. Eres Tú reached #9 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in 1974.

    My picks for Monday, September 18, 2017 -- Songs by artists after (or shortly before) they left the mothership to strike out on their own, Part 1:

    King of the Hill -- Roger McGuinn (Byrds) with Tom Petty




    Girls with Guns -- Tommy Shaw (Styx)




    Midnight Blue -- Lou Gramm (Foreigner)




    The Old Man Down the Road -- John Fogerty (Creedence Clearwater Revival)



    As a side note, this song was the basis of a lawsuit that made it to the US Supreme Court, Fogerty v. Fantasy, Inc., 510 US 517 (1994). Fantasy sued Fogerty, for copyright infringement, alleging The Old Man Down the Road sounded too much like the CCR song Run Through the Jungle. Fogerty prevailed and sought to collect attorney's fees.
