Music Meme day 2!

Just continuing onwards. I would love it if some of you would participate, but if you don't want to, you can always share my meme : )




I'm going to mix it up and not go in order, because I don't have to XD. Today's category is...

Energizer Bunny

I will go with Fleetwood Mac, who has been together in some way or another since the late 60s. Their lineup has changed so often, and now they are touring with Stevie Nicks singing. Lindsay Buckingham was supposed to tour with them, but he acted really immature in regard to Stevie (jezus their relationship ended 40 years ago) so they kicked him out. Now he's suing for wages he was supposed to earn while on tour. I actually am a big fan of Stevie Nicks and think she was their best singer. Maybe not necessarily most talented singer, but she always had such a stage presence. She also had a successful solo career and is the only woman to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame twice.



Lol a lot of videos of Stevie from that era feature her and her huge wind-swept hair.

And others...

Depeche Mode's lineup has been basically the same ever since Vince Clark left early on (he later went on to form Erasure and Yazoo). I like Depeche Mode very much and so many of their songs. I'll avoid their most famous music for now, and feature "New Dress".



I really like the message that this song is putting out. So many horrible things are on the news, and what they want to focus on is Princess Di and her new dress. Or maybe it's not even that message, just observing the juxtaposition of terrorist attacks, plane hijackings, people dying from various horrible things, on and there is Princess Di in her new dress.

"Legs" by ZZ Top. I love this song SO much. It is getting harder and harder for Billy to sing this song because he has to do it in the upper register and he struggles with it, but he still pulled of an awesome rendition of this when we went to see ZZ Top a couple years ago. This is one of those songs, that when it comes on, I have to blast it on the radio.




Also in case anyone actually reads this, I want to tell you about how ZZ Top began. You can find the detailed explanation in this video-



So the gist of it is that when the Zombies were getting popular in the 1960s, they wanted them to tour in the US. However, they didn't come for whatever reason, so a bunch of these fake Zombies bands starting coming up and touring under the name "The Zombies". Back then, people didn't really know how band members looked like unless they saw them live, and I don't think the Zombies had ever performed live in the US before, so people just fell for the ruse. Dusty and Frank were members of one of those fake Zombies bands. After they went on tour together, they decided they really liked working together and formed the ZZ Top that we know. Who could have imagined their popularity would way surpass the band they were posing as.

and the rest!

Oh yes, I remember that your mom really liked Fleetwood Mac. I thought actually that was one of Stevie's solo songs, but guess not.
