Many of my German friends say that they do not like any german music because they consider it to be generic and boring. And if you talk about the music commercial radios play – I agree. But boy, there is some goooood German music out there. One of my current favorites is Ilgen-Nur from Hamburg.Read more
If you are in need of some good contemporary 80s inspired pop I have just the thing for you. Mancunian musician Abbie Ozard is currently hitting all the big Spotify Indie playlists.
Having written music since the sweet age of 14, she has recently been discovered by big names like BBC’s Huw Stephens and even played festivals like Neighbourhood Festival or BBC Introducing.
I was first introduced to Fleetwood Mac by my Mum, who was obsessed with their song “Oh Diane” from their album Mirage, which led to me listening to that particular album by Fleetwood Mac casually for a really long time. My Mum even owned the album on record, so when she gave me her collection I grew more and more familiar with Fleetwood Mac, however, I never really listened to any other of their records (I might have heard “Dreams” a couple of times before, but who knows)
But, one day as luck would have it, I stumbled across Rumours on Spotify (or Apple Music, whatever I was using at that time), gave it a listen and haven’t been the same ever since.
Rumours is still Fleetwood Mac’s most popular album to this date and Dreams was their only song to become a Number 1 hit.
