    Forever Autumn sung by Justin Hayward from the war of the worlds album... ...memories from 1978.

    Listening to a few songs from August 1980 today. These songs remind me of a fading summer and the coming of autumn. Private Life - Grace Jones Ashes to Ashes - David Bowie Wednesday Wee

    I doubt it.  Thank god for the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's!

    I detest that song, so much so, I skip it when I listen to a 1984 countdown.

    There isn’t any decent british sounding British groups now. It’s all about drill music, or boring musicians from east London who speak multicultural London english. 

    essentially, britpop. Thats what the kinks, who, small faces etc were producing in the 60's, the Jam and Madness etc in the late 70's early 80's, long before blur oasis etc defined british guitar based pop as "britpop". I guess the artic monkeys have been the closest in recent times... but theres nothing regarding ordinary british lives. Grime is dreadful, negative, and is something i cannot like or appreciate. I believe peoples tastes nowdays are more political in their choice rather then emotional. They "like" them because they are supposed to... (what i mean by political)

    I’m not a Stones fan, but this one always makes me stop and listen. 
     

    Emotional Rescue is another one I quite like.

    Both wrong.

    It was September 1981.

    nope,  YOU are wrong, it was released in September 1980  not only according to my memory, but according to the record collector magazine rare record catalogue and the guiness book of british hit singles.

    It was released very end November 1978, and peaked at no 3 I think end Dec 78 into Jan 79.

    What? I thought we were discussing Rolling Stones ‘start me up’ which was released in September 1981 as a UK single. It may have been recorded in 1980, but it’s a 1981 hit.
