You couldn't let it go by? Pink Floyd was one of my main features in the Op and 2 videos from Live at Pompeii have already been posted


But I love Pink Floyd so I'm not going to complain.

The reason they made my top list was because of the 1980 tour of The Wall. No other band that I'm aware of has so masterfully illustrated a concept album with the use of stage props, puppets, a cast of actors and backup musicians, and that giant video screen.

Their stage literally became a living opera.

duhhh.. ok..I have been rightfully chastised for missing the links of the best live performing band ever. I feel ashamed at my oversight , and my apologies .

Heres to you OP, and forgive my ignorant oversight.

Thanks for being a gentleman about the correction as well.

Heres my favorite Hendrix video, unfortunately I cant find the version with just one song in it, but I did manage to find a 20 minute video with 4 songs and its the first one. Its also really cool because of the intro/random graphics. Theres also some really cool camera angles.
RIP Jimi

I like this game and wish to play along.

Stop Making Sense (concert movie but still live)
"This must be the Place"
I choose this for selfish reasons--it takes me to a place that I can't find the words to describe.



Warren Zevon
"Excitable Boy"
Great song--great performance (everybody looks like they're having a blast)--great guitar solo at end. Only Warren Zevon could come up with the lyrics for this song. I read somewhere that Warren was hitting the piano keys so hard that his fingers began to bleed.

Thanks for sharing your music with the thread. I have a lot to catch up on at this point. But I just gotta say that a whole account based off George Costanza is totally hilarious!


Even in the signature too hahaha.

Well, knowing George Costanza...he wouldn't "dumb it down for some bone-headed mass audience," and you shouldn't either

Many good choice so far ... ATS has some great taste in music!

Edit to add - Great Post OP, thank you! ... and great to see some of that music from the olden days


One of the greatest Soul, Funk and Afro Beat concerts ever was in the year that I was born '74 and this is a live concert that always comes to mind when someone asks "Best Concert Ever?"

This was the pre-fight concert for The Rumble in the Jungle or ... "Soul Power"

James Brown, Celia Cruz and the Fania All-Stars, B.B. King, Miriam Makeba, The Spinners, Bill Withers, Manu Dibango and Sister Sledge

I mean ... C'MON! THIS is an absolute musical feast ... I can listen and love it all all all day ... Enjoy friends

Some great music here!

Here's one of my favorite live performances, unfortunately, I wasn't born yet (my dad would've only been 13). Also, I read somewhere that Sly stone was sick and running a fever here, but I'm not sure about it, his voice does seem to be going, but damn, what a great performance!






Here's another great live performance of one of my favorite songs ever.





Here's one of a local band made up of some friends of mine, the guy singing Derek Reed, and Aaron Anderson on lead guitar. They're just a bar band, but they're pretty good, just good old dirty rock.

Some great music choices on this thread


I would have to pick the Cure....it's personal choice but I think they are absolutely amazing to watch live.


My fave, Picture's Of You - The Cure





I've listened to the Smiths for the last 26 years and i really regret that just as i started listening to them at the age of 15 the band split and I never got to watch them live together in concert ...but this next one is Morrissey at a home coming concert at the Manchester Arena....it also happens to be my fave song of all time.

There Is A Light That Never Goes Out - Morrissey




My last one is a tad before my time as I was only 9 in 1980.....but i would have loved to have watched the Jam live in the post punk era!



Going Underground - The Jam

This is the winner of The Voice, Cassadee Pope. A new personal favorite singer on my growing list.
I love this song. It is a very emotional song, and she does a wonderful job. It is worth watching the short ad at the beginning to hear her beautiful voice.
The song was written by her coach, Blake Shelton. It is about his brother's death.

Well, shute! I can't get the video to embed! Anyway, I love Cassadee Pope! And the song was, Over You.
