Name one song 40 years old, and you never get tired of listening

Post by Mason19 »

Could be a song that you still hear a lot (maybe on radio), or one that is gone & forgotten.

I will start: You’re the Only Woman - Ambrosia.

Well, it's not exactly 40 years old, but 39 and of course it's not repeatedly played on radio stations - if ever.

Frank Zappa, Cocaine Decisions! :D

Instead of song, the full album: AC/DC: Back in Black
Judas Priest: British Steel comes also close, but there are some weaker songs also.

Call me crazy, but I think it's underrated as hell. "Cocaine Decisions" is one of my favorite songs of his.

I guess I'll say it and duck. There's a reason overplayed songs are overplayed. And it's not because we're all stupid.

Radio stations in Germany are filled up with songs being overplayed. :roll:
It's their daily business to play songs being overplayed.

First idea was , Deep Purple - Child in Time, but that's older then 40 years.

Fourty years means the 80 ties ?

Well lets try some House then.

One of my favourite all time House tracks of which i even made a cover version. (with help from this forum)

Yo want to start this party right ?
Kraze - The Party

Well, that's perhaps some useful information! 👎 <--- copied this from the quote. Of course that's not the way you did!

Actually, that's pretty much how I did it. I searched for "Thumbs down character", found this page, and then copy/pasted it.

Thanks! :)

I always was wondering how the people in the comment sections at YouTube videos do their multiple emojis, since there is no list of emojis to select from like this forum has it. Now, that's the clue, it seems. So, I need to store this under my bookmarks. Never heard of emojipedia.org.

Again thanks! :)
