    I'm not a heavy Maiden fan but you can't compare Cure to Maiden.

    I don't, that is why one is Thai and the other is burger, no comparison!

    Ugh! The cure is music to jump off a bridge to.

    Also, there's a place in Bristol that sells Thai Burgers. They're really nice.

    Re: What song are you listening to right now?

    Oh, I'd like that combination. Location please!

    In musical terms, that Thai/burger combination is perhaps more like this, that I am now listening to now for the umpteenth time:

    Yeah you do wonder what it was they were trying to Cure, for their music to be the answer?

    Supposedly the Cure's most upbeat song, still very catchy.

    Wing's Diner. They kept me going through more than a few lock down evenings.

    I was definitely a rocker rather than a goth so, for me, the Cult were great from Electric onwards. Mind you, even before that they were one of the better goth bands in my opinion. I swear Ian Astbury was possessed by the ghost of Jim Morison.

    We've got a place here in town that has a fantastic Sushi Burger.

    I was a punk in '76 and then retained that aspect of my character with a slight hint of rebellion in all that I still do. Rebellion against what? I'm not so sure. All my interesting friends were all Mods, New Romanticists and Goths to some extent or other. All the boring ones wore a pastel-blue cardigan around their necks and held a tennis racket under their arm whilst down the pub...

    With regard to the Cure, I rate this song highly, for the very long intro that is indicative of a cure track, the sharps and flats again that distinguish it from the run-of-the-mill ordinary rock track, the sadness of the lyrics fits a mood but there are lifting moments that raise your soul too. I find this sort of music takes some brain power to appreciate but if there is no intrinsic sadness in your soul it can be hard to appreciate.

    Personally I find any sort of American-style hard rock to sound almost puerile by comparison. I am not stating that it is puerile, but for my brain it sounds simple to the point of idiocy and therefore too obvious to occupy my brain. This song by the Cure has layers, sounds, depth and definite sadness. Strangely, those are all 'positives' for my brain.

    I wasn't suggesting you actually try it. Although it's still probably better than listening to the cure.

    Anyway, I'm spending this evening falling down a You Tube Nostalgia Rabbit Hole which has currently led me to ACDC: Thunderstruck by way Motley Crue: Kickstart My Heart and Rammstein: Du Hast, among others. Survivor: Eye of the Tiger is on the suggestion list so I shall shortly commence shadow boxing round the dining room.

    Re: What song are you listening to right now?

    Stuff I listen to is probably "old folks'" music to most of you. Usually it has some casual connection to an event or times in my life. This just came up on my playlist:



    Yeah, that sort of thing is pretty out of style now.

    Some have media tie-ins that draw me back into a story:



    That story has similar overtones to the Bourne franchise:

    It's frustrating how high and low can England get on music.

    Just got done listening to Man of Steel soundtrack... started rummaging through what else I had... realized... I hadn't heard this in a while:

    Re: What song are you listening to right now?

    Hmmm, I rarely listen to actual music. If I do, it's something I must be in the mood for, doesn't really matter who made it or what exactly it's called. I do however often have Youtube video's such as Isaac Arthur, Nostalgia Critic , or just some silly cartoon playing in the background. If I really need to focus on something I prefer silence, if I think whatever is playing in the background sounds interesting I will take the time to really pay attention to it.

    Some good Turkish Goth for you. Ten steps deeper from the Cure with regard to the dark vibes.

    Best played with a bit of bass.

    The 1992 Chinese rock band-Hei Bao(Black Panthers), lead singer Dou Wei.

    Although the Hei-Bao(Panthers) still exists, but without the lead singer Dou Wei, the Hei-Bao(Panthers) has lost its former style and soul.

    Re: What song are you listening to right now?

    I remember early Speedwagon from my dorm days. Guys down the hall had a sick quadraphonic system and really cranked this one up:



    My PC speakers don't do it justice, and I almost think this CD was recorded from tape played slightly too slow on some crap machine.

    Later the band morphed, doing fairly standard pop fare and re-released this song with less edge and crispness.

    Great Band. Seen them one time on the east coast. Twisted by Design is one of my favorite Strung Out albums.
