Probably my favourite Bangles song. Always wished Michael Steele who wrote the the song got more recognition for her talents. Susanna Hoffs got all the limelight but my favourite of the Bangles would be Vicki Peterson.NothingFails wrote:Following's a great song!
Yep, I have about a dozen or so artists that emerged this decade on my list, but she's the only artist still only on her first album.04wayne wrote:Wow! Is she the most recent entry to your list? I personally wouldn't include her on the basis of having only one (average) record, but that's just me! I completely agree that she's brought pop back to the charts though, and that is brilliant! Most songs nowadays are R&B/Urban/Rap, and the majority of it is sh!te.
Gaga's single choices were truly brilliant. I don't think she could've been any bigger. I must also commend her song-writing skills. You know what, I'm writing this as if I'm having a conversation with somebody. And I think I've changed my opinion about Gaga within the last few lines

well, it isn't just the album alone, but there are a lot of great b-sides/bonus tracks, plus I love most of her remixes and videos so far. IMO, she seems to have the "whole package" and I fully expect some excellent things to come from her in the future. I noticed it on the VMA's, she kinda reminds me today of Cyndi or Madonna back in 84/85 when they were just starting out and everything was so new about them.Baditude wrote:I like Lady Gaga but I don't see how she can be on anyone's list with only one, formulaic, average album.
well, she's only #97 on my list... on the UKMix top 100 diva list, others ranked her above Aretha, Cher, Tina, Cyndi, Donna Summer and many other all time legends. I'd never place Gaga above those, at least certainly not one year into her career, 15-20 years, who knows.Baditude wrote:I just find it a bit ridiculous when their are literally hundreds of other artist who are better than that. But I'll stop now. Its your opinion.
Well, its not as if I take that UKMix top 100 list seriously anyways. Its made up by fans who know nothing besides R&B and Pop divas of the 2000s.NothingFails wrote:well, she's only #97 on my list... on the UKMix top 100 diva list
Well, everything after the 70s and 80s does pale in comparison. This is coming from a guy who was born in 88'.NothingFails wrote:he's no better than a gay equivilent of one of those old hippies who thinks everything after Woodstock is irrelevant.
Well that is all true and I respect your opinion. I just find it funny that this guy at 37 still obsesses over people like Sinitta, Sonia and Hazell Dean and still follows new music the old SAW artists make (we're talking the most obscure 80's dance acts), but he has no tolerance or patience for people like Rihanna or Gaga simply because they date past his high school experience, and I have no doubt in my mind that if those artists were out in 1989 instead of 2009, he would be worshiping them.Baditude wrote:Well, its not as if I take that UKMix top 100 list seriously anyways.

Lady Gaga's talented but I know better. I think it all comes down to what you've been exposed to. Thank God, I don't think Gaga is the second coming like some people do.
