Top one is PJH? Unless it's someone who looks a bit like her?

EDIT - I didn't read the question properly. I thought it said 90's....probably because I was convinced that was Polly

FAR too much meat on her bones for Polly (& prettier if I'm honest).

PJ Harvey Polly Jean lick my legs - Pj Harvey - Mug | TeePublic

PS just googled her (yeees) & it's Susanna Hoffs. Would never have recognised her - looks about a foot taller than I remember.

She's in her early 60s, he in his late 50s. I think we can guess who has lived the healthier lifestyle.😀

Nice selections Kg. Joanna is a nice one to include.

There's lots of great early Scott and I couldn't resist adding one here plus another God Bless the Child version (BS & T very good too).

Susanne Sundfør also did a neat version of the latter on a recent BBC Newsnight programme (of all TV places you might not expect to hear someone sing live. Also on YouTube).

You very rarely see a drummer use the brushes anymore, probably because nobody writes songs like theses anymore. But they do give a great extended feel to the rhythm that makes you want to sway your way around the room.

I haven't listened to the others yet but I know that Sibelius piece is one of the finest pieces of classical music around.

The 2nd movement of the above piano concerto is sublimely beautiful

Enjoyed these. Be Bop Deluxe missed me by I'm afraid to say, so this was a first listen. Packed in so much in that 2 minute song. Worth looking at more. The Shostakovich I'm sure you included earlier on because it's now familiar and those manic movements amongst the lovely sweeps. Sibelius always a favourite. Another one to save to my playlist app 👍

Yes! Dmitri might well have been a double post; I'm keeping a list & crossing them off as I go but that one snuck through. my PC didn't wake up this morning & i hadn't saved my list, so I spent a while going through them again. Doh! Must remember to save things ...

love that Kate Bush song 🙂

Yes, it's intriguing (written in 1978 but released later). It was a choice of this song or Full House.

BTW if I listen to disco (funkier stuff) which is not so often, it's the bass lines that I listen out for always. It's the kind of soul of that kind of music for me. Can't really explain more!

One of Mrs Sonyc's claim to fame is that Brian Connelly grabbed her by the shoulders at a gig.

RIP Steve Priest

Me and my cousin did a recording of us singing along to Blockbuster playing on the radio when it was in the charts-we were about 8 or 9 years old. In my opinion they were the best glam rock band. 

In 1997 my cricket club did a Stars In Their Eyes competition and I sang Ballroom Blitz. Brian Connolly had very recently died so it was quite poignant for me. Both Brian and Mick Tucker lived locally so I told my brother who was compering the night that I had got some of Brian’s clothes from Mick and was therefore wearing authentic 70s gear-I’d actually bought it that day in local charity shops!

I might have a glam rock music afternoon today-love T-Rex too.
