theDuke | 5607 comments Good evening music musers!

Yours truely standing in for Spacepig..while he's out bopping to whatever live gig he's attending tonight. We would be doing his nom this week, but since the host had requested that he'd like to be present for it..we shall instead do the next artist on the list, which just happens to be my nom Boney M...isn't that sweet?! :)

I don't think i need say much about this successful Eurodisco/R&B/Reggae band..so your noms and links in the usual orderly fashion, much obliged.

And we kick off with Collette's nom, followed by mine:

Painter Man

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2BhIw...

Painter Man
Nightflight To Venus/Rasputin

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aJVqP...

And yes..i know that's two songs..but on the NftV album, these 'two' tracks kick off the album uninterrupted..so i have always regarded them as one song. In any case...one can't play Rasty without Nightflight first, in my book! :)

Overstepping my authority a wee tad, am i?! lol! :P

Have a jolly fabtastic week pop pickers.

I prefer not to nominate covers but a lot of their songs were covers and this one sounds better to me than some of their original songs.

Finally some decent classic Reggae and Caribbean music. Top stuff! This is quite epic and beautiful (and mercifully short).

message 30: by Spacepig (new)

Spacepig Pig | 1454 comments I am back, with tales to tell and songs to sing. But first off, we'll close this one off.

Gold gong this week belongs to Tech, for his nom, Daddy Cool. A shiny sliver for Brassy with Rivers Of Babylon, and grabbing the bronze, Tim with Ma Baker.

I would like to say that even though I didn't have time to participate in this round, I gave the playlist a good listen and thoroughly enjoyed it. But, I can't, in all honesty if I never hear another song from this band ever again, it will still be too soon. Hope you all had fun with it though :-)

Tech XXIII  | 6453 comments yay! i'm crazy like a fool!
these are the funnest rounds! of course i'm not going to run out and buy their catalogue, but it's somehow comforting that they are there!...............and no mention of their anthem for faecal fantasists, 'brown ring in the girl', i mean, "show me your motion" - filthy bastids!
