So far no one has mentioned movie songs so I'll give it a shot.

Sometimes they just help set a mood

Sometimes they make a point

Sometimes they pay tribute to the star

Sometimes a rousing theme is the only thing you can remember about a movie you saw more than 40 yrs. ago

And sometimes, rarely, a song and a singer become icons.

Anyone here familiar with the english speaking French group "Tahiti 80"?

Check out their sound, it's upbeat and uplifting, for the most part.

Just reading through the posts, it's interesting to see other peoples soft rock/pop "guilty pleasures". It reminds me of those K-Tel compilation records we all probably used to own in the 70s. Remember those? I too love the Little River Band.
Some other favorites:
Does anyone remember the band "Jigsaw"? Their hit song "Sky High" was one of my favorites from back then.

Hi Flyinhighagain,

I like all of your choices. Remember, this isn't just a thread for soft rock/pop. What are you listening to today, for instance?

Today I listened to KISS' 'Dressed to Kill' and 'Destroyer' and right now I have Todd Rundgren's 'Something/Anything' in the player. A little off topic and not related to what I've played today, the people on these forums, in addition to a show on satellite radio called 'For Headphones Only', have piqued my interest in prog rock. I've always liked some but after finally trying out a band called Porcupine Tree I find myself wanting to dig deeper.......Just some thoughts for today...

AP - Actually this morning I was listening the new Alice in Chains - Black Gives way to Blue, which is a really good record. I also listened to some Anvil, whom I saw in concert last night. Great show, great story, average music!

re: Something/Anything

IMO probably the greatest double-pop album of the 70's. Todd has one of those voices that get you everytime. He is one of my favorite Artists. I saw your post about Bily Joel. He may have been shoved down your throat, but you could have done alot worse? I was brought up a Stones throw away from Felix Cavaliere of the Rascals and I still can't get enough of there music. I like listening to pop music and easy listening at times. I love Carole King, James Taylor and early Melissa Manchester and Bette Midler.

Nice thread.. Hi Althea.

"I saw your post about Bily Joel. He may have been shoved down your throat, but you could have done alot worse?"

I will never deny the talent that Billy Joel has so sure, Could've done a lot worse. I don't know about the rest of the country but Billy Joel is played quite a LOT around here. I do own most of his prime period material (1975-1980) but it's been quite awhile since I pulled any of it out. It just doesn't have the same impact on me anymore like it once did a long time ago.

Something/Anything is easily the greatest double pop/rock album of the 70's.

Christopher-speaking of Billy Joel, Liberty Devitto is one of the unheralded drummers in rock. i know they had a falling out and he is no longer in the band but i saw Billy about 5 times in the early to mid 80's when i lived in NJ and Liberty always put on an awesome show. there's some really good drumming on those late 70's-early 80's records(especially on Turnstiles and the live Songs In The Attic)

agree that Something/Anything is incredible. i was recently playing a homemade mix of mine featuring "dirty" songs and Todd's "Slut" made it. love that song

Funny you mention 'Slut' because that is the song that was playing when I typed up my post. In fact, at the end of my post I was going to type:

S-L-U-T-She may be a slut but she looks good to me'

for no reason other than it's just so damn catchy!

On Liberty Devito - I've always had a good ear when it came to listening to music so I agree with your assessment of his drumming. I first got 'Glass Houses' when I was 10 on vinyl and the first song (You May Be Right) skipped on my little turntable because of the driving beat of the song. I remember writing on the record sleeve on the picture of the band right next to Devito (because I still have the vinyl) saying, "I made 'You May Be Right' skip."...LOL...It's one of those things you do when you're ten I guess. The other song I picked up on was 'Sometimes A Fantasy' which followed, although that didn't skip, a few pennies later anyway..Thanks for the memory jog though..

I have always had an ear for gospel music, especially the black gospel but never ventured too much into it nor southern gospel. I have much of the classic gospel on LP and CD, etc.

But lately I have really enjoyed the Gaither Gospel Homecoming Series. I was attracted to glimpses of the videotaped commericials in the 80s & 90s. However, I was selective in my choice of song, it was usually the upbeat ones.

But in the last couple of years or so, I sit and watch entire homecoming concerts. I love to watch them sing, sing-along, and hear their praise for God. And, I am not very religious, but the music and words have inspired me.

Hi Rizzo,

I grew up on traditional spirituals. Mahalia Jackson, The Five Blind Boys of Alabama and so on.

I have watched some of the Gaither Gospel Homecoming Series and yes, they are quite uplifting.

As far as contemporary Gospel music I really like Amy Grant, especially her earlier songs like "Angels Watching Over Me", you familiar with her?

Here's a youtube offering.
