    Barclay James Harvest !

    Initially they intended to be proggers. There's even a short concert film with them (shot by Wim Wenders in about 1970, btw.) that shows them playing really ambitious music. But then, as we all know: Sticky sweet soft pop. Moody Blues wannabees. Maximum WAF. Precautiously one has to put his speakers into a big enough tub to prevent the schmalz and syrup from distributing over the floor.

    Best regards!

    Our local radio station must have just found a copy of this ... , they've been playing it daily.

    Release and reception

    "The Final Countdown" became an instant success on the charts worldwide upon its release, reaching number one in 25 countries (including the UK, where it spent two weeks at the top and is Europe's only Top 10 hit to date),[4] and is commonly regarded as the band's most popular and recognizable song. The single reached number 8 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, and is the most successful song from the album on the Album Rock Tracks chart, peaking at number 18 (and charting for 20 weeks).[15]

    The song is also the band's highest charting single in Australia and Canada, peaking at number 2 and number 5 respectively.

    Too bad I missed it when it was popular ...

    McCartney screws them up too ...

    I'll start.

    Bruce Springsteen
    Rush
    Yes
    Thin Lizzy
    Ambrosia (some YES clone)
    Captain Beyond
    Frank Zappa
    Genisis/Phil Collins
    Dixi-land - anything

    You are welcome to disagree, but let's keep it civil. Please add your AGYCS entries.
    All on list have their moments, but musically, not for me.

    Bob Dylan
    Frank Zappa
    Joe Cocker
    Neil Young
    Bob Seiger
    Kiss
    Rod Steward

    Tough to do, would take a lot to get me up out of my seat.
    But

    Rap
    Disco
    Jazz
    Classical
    Polka
    Christian

    Not my style.

    Age makes difference as I'm 68, but not out of date(6 kids)
    So let me add
    Boy Bands

    Boy Bands

    The problem is: it's all too much, but here are some questions:
    YES: Who doesn't like the Rickenbacker bass playing of Chris Squire?
    SPRINGSTEEN: Who doesn't like the powerful saxophone solos of Clarence Clemons?
    ROD STEWART: Who doesn't like the great guitar playing of Jeff Beck in combination with Rod's vocals?
    ELTON JOHN: Who doesn't like the poetry of Bernie Taupin?
    RAP: Who doesn't like Ella Fitzgerald's rapping and scatting?
    BOY BAND: Who doesn't like The Beatles of the early 60ies?
    You don't need to eat the whole basket full of apples. One or two is sufficient. Take the apple without a worm inside....
