    • I think 'Wasted Years' was the first Iron Maiden song that I admitted to liking. I had liked a few of their records from about 1982 onwards but wouldn't own up to it!

      • I've loved (practically) everything Maiden have ever released and don't care who knows it!

        Wasted Years was certainly a slight change of direction from previous singles - more introspective, obviously...

        Must admit I had a small problem with the line "you never miss it till it's gone away..."

        How can anybody miss something that hasn't gone? Shouldn't it be "you never appreciate it" or "you take it for granted" or similar?

        Same with Bryan Ferry's "Let Stick Together": "you never miss your water till your well runs dry..."

        Guess I'm in a pedantic mood today...

              Quo return to the top with something of a Marmite single...

              I thought it was the best thing they'd done for a decade and a great version of Bolland & Bolland's chilling anti - Vietnam song...

              Which is more than can be said for the "reimagined" 2010 version!

              Meanwhile Alice's "He's Back" was the theme song to, and best thing about, Friday the 13th Part VI (this was the one where the series jumped the shark and turned Jason into a zombie...)

              • I quite liked 'In The Army Now'. Apparently Status Quo recorded the song after Francis Rossi had heard Bolland & Bolland's original while travelling through West Germany a few months earlier. He loved the song and talked Rick Parfitt into recording it.

                I quite like 'In The Shape Of A Heart' by Jackson Browne. It was a big favourite at the time on London's Capital Radio.

                • ^

                  Yes, powerful stuff from Jackson Browne.

                  Easy to overlook how influential he was on Springsteen (and Bruce's own imitators....)

                  I suspect Brandon Flowers was a fan...

                                    • 'Behind The Mask' by Eric Clapton is a great song. A bit of shameless name dropping here but later in 1987 I saw Eric Clapton in a pub called Finch's on Notting Hill Gate (the pub is now closed and is now a bakery /cafe called Le Pain Quotidien}. And he spoke to me! We were both waiting to get served at the bar and when the barmaid asked what he wanted to drink he turned to me and said "you're before me". My claim to fame! This was before he gave up drinking but he didn't look drunk or anything. In fact he seemed stone cold sober. And all he ordered was half a lager, drank that and then left the pub.

                                        Great story, Robbie. Seems like Eric is a pretty down-to-earth men, despite his status of God, he received in the 60's.
                                        I'm looking for "TOP POPS/MUSIC NOW" and "MERSEYBEAT / MUSIC ECHO" Charts to complete my 60's singles charts collection.

                                              Slade probably made a mistake releasing their latest Christmas-y single in February....

                                              For some reason I remember the reaction to Saxon's ballad Northern Lady on Radio One's Singled Out review programme. Errol Brown of Hot Chocolate praised the "sexy" vocal. Bet Biff Byford was surprised...

                                              • Beastie Boys are missing from the latest chart (Fight For Your Right). More surprisingly, so are The Cult (Love Removal Machine).

                                                They really did think 80s era Genesis were more worthy of being in the Kerrang! chart than The Cult! The first No.1 magazine Metal Chart will debut in April 4th issue and both these acts feature...

                                                Of course The Cult were regarded as goth before 87 and Beastie Boys ceased to be rock as soon as 89. But still, to see that The Lady In Red made this chart but She Sells Sanctuary didn't is nuts! (though the later remix would chart)
