At work today I had a cassette of 'The Miracle' album and Breakthru was on and some lady came in and started dissing it saying it sounds "too 80s!".. she thought it was new music, and was the type who doesn't listen to anything older than a year old. She was mouthy too and I said "It's Queen" and she's like "well there you go" in a rude way. What a wench she was!

So you took her out and shot her?

Sounds very Bolshevik to me.

but you gotta admit - it is VERY 80s

- that was THE WHOLE point of that decade!- lots of usually - non-conformist artists found themselves having to adapt to the 80s formula in order to sell records
Springsteen, Queen, Dire Straits, The Who - all of their 'more traditional' sound changed dramatically during the 80s - so much so that the singles were a huge step away from their 70s sound

don't agree? - take some of their biggest hits of the 80s and put em alongside their 70s stuff.

Dire Straits is not very good example, they've formed in the end of 70s...

Brenski, I actually like most of the songs you mentioned! LOL!
I'm not one of those who thinks a song has to be complex or difficult to memorize just to be a good song.
On Queen specifically, I generally like their 80s music more than the 70s albums. I also like Freddie's 80s voice better.

As you told it, she didn't insult Breakthru, you insulted the 80s by feeling offended with that (absolutely right) comment.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

I doubt the song has any feelings, and so is unlikely to be traumatised by one opinion.

Breakthru is a song that gets me pretty amped and energetic. The next time she disses Queen, just say (insert her favourite group) was influenced by Queen (just play the six degrees of seperation game, the band, through some other band, is bound to be influenced by them somehow!).

Eh, whatever...if it's anything I've learned, some people just aren't going to like Queen. Too bad for them. :)

well i guess we hope she doesn't try to join Queenzone...lol she would probably be more hated than BPP :P ;)

it's just one woman's opinion, and the song is very '80s...

but it was also a brilliant song


don't i know you from the cinematographer's party?

True, the tune is rather 80s-ish, but what's wrong with that?
It's synth-driven pop-rock, the sorta tune that makes you feel good in the morning while you're waiting for the bus.
As for the Who, they did sorta tweak their sound in the 80s, but that's b/c Moon kicked it in 1979. I personally think It's Had, their 1982 release, is highly underrated. One At A Time and Eminence Front are damn good tunes.

Yes, I know and I didn't understand what you meant - I've said that Dire Straits were formed in the end of 70s and this is automatically means that I hate them or what?
