Welcome to Chuckles Tunes where I look at different songs from different decades to give you an idea of what is on my MP3 player or playing in my cd player! I'll also look at favourite albums that have some meaning to me. Music wise I love rock'n'roll, 60's-80's, rock, country, soul, motown, glam rock. Not really into rap, dance and a lot of what charts these days!
One of the classic 50's songs has to be by the recently sadly departed Chuck Berry. I love Johnny B Goode. I got into listening to this old rock'n'roll by watching 80's films with this kind of soundtrack like Back to the Future and Peggy Sue Got Married, then hunting down cds in the library and buying what I liked.
For the sixties I'm picking out Tales of Brave Ulysses by Cream. This is a classic psychedelic 60's song. I first heard it on an episode of Buffy many years back (Band Candy) and loved it, going straight out to buy the album. Anyone who can make a hit song out of Greek mythology is doing something right!
One of favourite songs of the 70's was ACDC Highway to Hell. I listen to this loud enough to wake the zombies! Love this song. Enjoyed seeing it featured on season one of Supernatural and have fond memories of headbanging to it at the all night party at the student union. The perfect song for 5am!
This is the decade I grew up in so I have a particular fondness for the music! I had a major crush on Adam Ant so that is a great place to start. We all learned the Prince Charming dance and I used to lead everyone round the assembly hall at school discos...magic memory! And was so hot in the video!
I think one of my favourite more up to date songs has to be by a great Scottish band Franz Ferdinand. Love the group name and their music. I'm picking their brilliant Do You Want to?
Heard any of these? Any memories attached to these songs?
