I just heard this song on the radio and immediately liked it.
Delightful to my ears, nice groove, cool synths and great vocals, I think.
Very dreamy. And pretty cool video too.

Röyksopp - 'Oh, Lover' ft. Susanne Sundfør (Official Visualiser)


(I've heard other good songs by Röyksopp, they have a nice sound, I think)

Unlike U.S. pop , rock and roll, Doo wop. Motown was not shut down with the British invasion. The rolling stones and Beatles covered various motown and soul music.

Two really good songs recently released by two different Swedish artists:
(both sung in English)

Cornelia Jakobs - Rise (Official Audio)
- this is a really good song in my opinion. Very tricky, it starts quite lowkey, but it builds, and builds and builds.
And some of the high note vocals that eventually come send shivers down my spine :smile:.



...and here's a great acoustic live version (with some marvellous high notes too):

Cornelia Jakobs - Rise / live i P3 Session


Artist: Cornelia Jakobs

Another good song, this one by the quite famous Swedish duo First Aid Kit:

First Aid Kit - Palomino (Official Video)
- marvellous vocals in this one too. When I first heard the song I immediately liked the drum pattern. It wouldn't surprise me if they got somewhat inspired by Tom Petty's "Don't Come Around Here No More", which has a quite similar drum pattern. That Tom Petty song is one of my all-time favorites, by the way.


Artist: First Aid Kit

That's a darn good song. One of my favorites from that era.

Another wonderful track by the Norwegian electronica duo Röyksopp.
Instrumental and quite modest, but very atmospheric and with a lovely sound.
It has become one of my favorites.

I heard this tonight on a regional music program. Somehow, I missed this 37 years ago.

A classic song from 1986, regretfully quite relevant these days...

Yes, you can easily replace those protagonists from the 1980s with new faces. It is almost like we do not learn from mistakes... Anyway it is Xmas and this was always the underplayed song (Maria Carey, PLEASE make it stop!)
Edit: Hopefully not blocked. Notice all the diffraction spikes from the lights, its the 70s!

I really like this version of "Umbrella" which is far heavier than the original, and also with live drums. And it's a top notch performance, I think.

There were a couple of great jazzy, funky, bands from this era.

I will have to post a few from Heat Wave, Isley Bros, Chi-lites.

Anyway Maurice White, super cool velvet voice and check out the run he does at 1.00, try it!

Phil Bailey though, wow, incredible range. Some may be more familiar from the duo with Phil Collins song, “Easy Lover.”

Ok let's start with the Chi-lites. Listening to this on the radio as a kid the harmony grabbed me straight away. Had no idea about chords, progressions or anything but you that didn't matter. Just listen to it.
Anyway this is from Soul Train, I think the show just featured black music, all the audience are black. Seems a bit odd now. I'll check out more videos from the show. This is great as you see them, check the changing hue of the outfits, 1970s effects! Miming to the track but that doesn't matter.

I hope you guys can access the vids. This is live, no auto tune existed and if it did and was offered to this band it would end up in the trash as soon as it was unpacked. Same genre as Earth Wind and Fire, soul, jazz.

Another Heat Wave, mimed again but you get to see them. That kind of awkward looking guy on the keys is Rod Temperton. He wrote the tracks. He wrote a lot for other artists, 'Thriller' Michael Jackson being one of them.

Soul became a very flexible term in 70s 80s Actually just pop music. This is soul:.
