• 80's Music Echo

    From Black Panther@316:36/17 to All on Sat Jan 12 17:27:35 2019
    Hi All,

    I know this echo is the 80's Music Echo, but I would like to open it up to cover music of all types from any era.

    So, what is your favorite music? Are you a head-banger from the 70-80s, or
    did you prefer country?

    Personally, while I like all types of music, I was a head-banger. My favorite bands were Metallica, Megadeth, Queensryche, Anthrax, King Diamond, and Dio. Now that I'm 'older', I still lean towards the heavy metal genre, but I also like to listen to some pop, rap, jazz, classical, country, and Celtic.

    I think that as far as new music, I would have to say I'm really liking bands like Halestorm, Disturbed, Device, and Nightwish.

    I would also like to open this up for discussion. The 80's Music Trivia questions, right now, are general 80s music. Do you think there should be
    more of a variety of questions, including other eras, genres, etc, or should there be additional questions posted for other genres?

    The reason I'm asking, is I would like to create a question/answer database
    for more of the hard rock/heavy metal genres, but I'm not sure if you would want those incorporated into the current database. It would be easy enough,
    to create a separate database, and just create a second posting each week,
    one for each database. What are your thoughts?

    Let's make this a great year for music and BBSing. :)

    Nightwish.

    I just "discovered" Nightwish about 6 months ago after following a few other symphonic rock leads from wiki pages and recommended artist suggestions at iTunes and Spotify.


    I would also like to open this up for discussion. The 80's
    Music Trivia questions, right now, are general 80s music.

    I put together an audio quiz for ALL:

    https://kolico.ca/fidonet/echos/memories/
    name%20that%20artist%20and%20cd.mp3

    The short url = https://tinyurl.com/y3jxndbw

    It is a mashup of 7 intros of tunes, the 8th being a reprise of the 1st
    sample. Total time, 3 minutes. It's recorded with at least 320kbps and stereo.

    Can you name the Artist, and the specific recording? All tunes are from
    the same recording.

    I have produced two more versions of the file and generated short urls:

    128 kbps, 2.9MB - https://tinyurl.com/y2d7jj27
    64 kbps, 1.5MB - https://tinyurl.com/y6zzutez

    ..both still in stereo.

    The artist basically "emerged" int he 80's, but this particular audio mashup is from a 1995 album.

    Hope you can give them a listen, and guess the artist and album!

    I think BBSing *is* getting a bit of an upturn lately. And wrt music, Spotify has broadened the enjoyment of discovering new artists.
