    Video Thread - Music that you'd rock to...

    The post by Skyhook about Midnight Oil got me wasting a fair bit of the last hour on YouTube.

    Figured a thread about music that "defines you" would be a great thread to bring down corporate productivity across Hong Kong.

    My favorites:

    Eric Clapton - Cocaine .. one of the better guitar solos (not in this version though)

    Sultans of Swing .. again a defining guitar solo.

    Thumbs up

    Ha Ha this is great, thanks KIA, a moment of clarity of sorts, for us all ....

    One of my all time favourite live bands, Australian formed Crowded House .
    Man I miss open air live concerts like that, and talented singers/musicians.

    This next one is a Melbourne parady, that generation X Melbournites will lyrically undertand. A band that I used to watch at the pub, and they still play a lot of the smaller more intimate venues till this day, a very independant group, known as : Things of stone and wood.

    When I hear this song,
    I think of drinking cappucino's with great mates at 4am, Sunday mornings at an after gig cafe called " the Hide Out in Fitzroy", enjoying a kebab on the esplanade in St Kilda, and a real pizza in Carltons Lygon Street. Stone the crow's, I do miss a few things about home.

    Another band I really love live, which has a very distinctive LA kind of sound, is Steely Dan, absolutely tight as far as musicians go, very punchy.

    Another favourite Oils song, recorded back in 1984 on the Red sails in the sunset album, " When the generals talk". I couldnt find an original clip on you tube, but it seems the songs timeless lyrics still hit a cord during todays geopolitical climate, 23 years on. Best played loud and hopefully with a good subwoofer/speaker combination rigged up.

    Steely Dan -- yeah good and enjoy them .. but a little bit sterile for my liking.
