Must be a couple of years since we have had a good Friday night music thread. So its about time we had another one!

The idea is simple - post youtube links of some of your favourite music. The more melodic & sing along the better. The forum looks after itself for the evening and we chill out with a few beers and hopefully loads of great music.

Feel free to join in - or I'll spend the evening filling it up on my own and you will have to suffer terrible 80s rock & pop music :-rofl2

I open the evening up with The Stranglers - Golden Brown from 32 years ago in jan 82!

Skip forward a year to 1983 and Mike Oldfield was charting with Moonlight Shadow

Mmm just cracked open a bottle of Banks's Bitter from Wolverhampton so a Midlands band seems appropriate

ELVIS

Costello
Oliver's Army

This was in the charts when I was at school - one rained off PE lesson the sadistic staff made everyone sing a bit and nominate the next person to sing. When my turn came up I sang a few bars of this - tunelessly & well off key - to be stopped & told "thats more than enough!" I didnt get chosen again :-lmao

30 years later my singing is just as awful - a few years ago I was involved in a staff karaoke night & afterwards I was told I was never allowed to take part again :D
