There's an oldies channel in the radiation room, 1/2 rock, 1/2 pop crap. So when I'm lucky it's Otis and Little Richard, then Sugar Sugar... bleah
      Damn, good luck man, seriously...

          I definitely feel the same. Big Moody Blues fan since the 70's, but sometimes can't stand hearing them on the radio. I've found the MB either suck or don't depending on your mood. For instance, their 1967 sophomore effort Days of Future Passed, contained this tune (alternatively known as either "Tuesday Afternoon, or Forever Afternoon (Tuesday?).

          It was literally written in a field of grass on a beautiful Spring afternoon, and it usually cheers me up. But, I've found that when my melancholy hits its peak, I can't stand listening to it and want to smash the record to bits.



          Then you have the more surreal MB, and following the same album's "afternoon/night" motif, introduced the "Night" segment of the album before becoming a hit single. This is another song that makes me feel pretty groovy when I'm happy, but if I'm sad, makes things worse.



          It ends with "The Late Lament", a thoughtful spoken word poem written by the band's drummer Graeme Edge and spoken by keyboardist Mike Pinder.

          "Breathe deep, the gathering gloom" just about sums up my whole philosophy of life.

          Breathe deep the gathering gloom,
          Watch lights fade from every room.
          Bedsitter people look back and lament,
          Another day's useless energy spent.
          Impassioned lovers wrestle as one,
          Lonely man cries for love and has none.
          New mother picks up and suckles her son,
          Senior citizens wish they were young.
          Cold hearted orb that rules the night,
          Removes the colours from our sight.
          Red is grey and yellow white.
          But we decide which is right.
          And which is an illusion?

              An amazing 1985 Tangerine Dream album (#26 to be exact).

              Their only 1985 LP release, this contains the highly acclaimed (but short-lived) Street Hawk theme.

                Tuesday and Timothy Leary's Dead are probably their best. I picked up a best of that had one good song.. Classic radio plays Nights too often - a lot of stuff drives me nuts, it's just such a short play list. Like let's hear Stairway to Haven, Fire Bird etc The worst was my cement contractor: We were adding a big pad, me, a buddy and the contractor. He put on CLASSIC ROCK!!! station and in the morning they played Lola by the Kinks. Now I am a big Kinks fan, but since I don't want to get sick of Lolo, and Proud Mary, etc I avoid classic rock greatest hits, it sucks. But he loved it and he happily sang along, l o l a lola, . That afternoon they played it AGAIN and he was happily singing along, l a l o lola..... I still shudder in horror.

                          Here's a good deep cut. Some may argue this is "disco", but it's really the Kinks saying "Fuck you" to disco. 1979.
