Icons in music AND fashion

Talk about music - songs/albums that you love, and the ones that you don't.

The thing is that when our parents listen to good Music, we get to develop our own taste and that frequently goes towards bands no one ever heard of.. my sister is 12 and she is the only one in her school who doesn't like Kesha (which might be my biggest proud :lol: )

Does your radio play them? Does your family play them?

:shock: But... Everybody knows Madonna (and Prince, I suppose) here!

When Kesha first came out, I thought what a dumb song to "Tik Tok".
But ended up liking the dumb song!

Just interesting to hear what some of the younger people are listening to today.
My kids have their own likes.
Just making a special cd for one and this is what she chose:
Tik Tok, Jamiroquai, and Put a ring on it (Single ladies) :lol:

The Who were a big influence on my style when I was 16.....listened to them, The Jam, The Specials 8) and wore skinny jeans, pointy shoes, lots of stripes and Keds..and the army parkas with the fur hoods ....and sewed on scooter rally patches on it.

@ Giba7 this generation is very retro based. So yes there are a lot of fans from music between the 60's to 90's ( 70's are kinda ignored tho :roll:). I don't really know what is DuranDuran and only know David Bowie because it was rumoured he was coming to town. Anyway, Freedie Mercury, Kurt Cobain, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Bob Marley, David Bowie are played everywhere...

I don't listen to any of the above tho ( just Queen and Bob Marley sometimes...)

@ curse_t_70 Small FAces > The Who :P ... and i tought mods were extinct by the 80's but they are not :shock: and that's cool :D . I kinda like this beatnik generation movements.

I think there has always been an underground mod scene after the initial one in the late 1960s/70s. There is an annual scooter run here in B.C that happens on the May long weekend part of their route goes right by my house They come on the ferry from Vancouver and park dozens of scooters in front of our famous Empress hotel. It is impressive to see them on the streets with all the mirrors and customized add ons. I always thought the guy mods looked smart but their girls always looked rather homely......but its about the music too..which I am a fan.

Oh..and Small Faces were great..IchycooPark...and Steve Marriot was amazing.

I never really understood mod's musical taste... they are supposed to like ska but mod brand bands sound somewhere between funky and rocky? Whoever is writing on wikipedia about them is leaving me confused.

Ichycoo Park lyrics are really junkie and unclassy. But that small faces song they used for GTA V trailer is killer!

Wow! Totally lost here!
For me, the 70's was about Classic Rock. (Clapton, McCartney, Joplin)
And really why I can appreciate The Black Keys.

Great pic Curse_t!

When I re watched the Casbah video I posted......I saw the army boots they were wearing and remembered a time I used to wear those same clunky black things.....I remember being @ a party, young, shy and naive and this cool older guy who was known to be abnoxious said to me "Why do you wear those boots?" I can't member my response but I probably blushed......he said "because boots on a girl is sexy!" ....that made my night.

You can lump me in with the Americans if you want MissLisa.....but that is a photo of a Canadian school :wink: Actually my old high school and it is going to be knocked down soon...I think it was built in the 1940s.It probably isn't safe anymore.

:lol:
They were the thing! I had a pair of low heel, lace up boots to mid calf too!
But someone nicknamed me "half-pint" :x (like Laura on Little House) :lol:
oh I wish I could find a pic! I got rid of them.

Have you seen what the lead singer of Dead or Alive (Pete Burns) looks like now? Major plastic surgery gone wrong! It's actually very sad. :(

Well, I think Led Zeppelin has got to fit in here somewhere!
I don't think another band (well maybe the Beatles) made so many great songs!
Every single song was perfect!
And well, you decide if they were also icons in fashion! Jimmy Page was always gorgeous!
