  •  I think I've come across Teenage Kicks... (4+ / 0-)

    somewhere over the last couple of years.  It sounds very familiar.  I liked that one quite a bit.

    Since late 2008/early2009 I started listening to stuff on Radio 1 through my Sirius/XM subscription and I discovered a lot of music that has never made it over here.  Of course a lot of stuff they've played on Radio1 during that time was crap IMO, (I'm certainly way out of their demographic), but there were some occasional modern pop gems that I came across.  

    Too bad Radio1 has decided to completely alienate seemingly anyone over the age of 21 over the last year in their effort to decrease their average listener age.  I no longer care that Sirius/XM stopped broadcasting R1 last year.  But at least now I know I can stream the other BBC radio content online.

      I listen to "massive hits" from the sixties and seventies here that I have never heard before.

      It's a voyage of discovery.

      I agree, amidst the gold there is brass, on both sides, but it never fails to amaze me that some stunning music never traveled.

      I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
      but I fear we will remain Democrats.

        Drivetime show on R2 over the lats half a year and he plays a fair number of oldies from the last couple of decades.  I'm surprised to find that a number of oldies that I know quite well from my early years made it across the pond.

      that I've mentioned The Undertones in a comment. Love 'em, love that album. I continue turning on new young punks to it and they all love it.
