How about a song about playing video games that isn't about playing video games?

Not bad. How about what is, quite possibly, the first song about video/computer games ever.

(This is '79, if anybody knows an earlier one, please let me know.....)

Did 80's Aussie pub rock ever get better than H&C?

INXS, Oils, The Church, Badseeds, Died Pretty, Triffids, Go-Bees, Cold Chisel... AC/DC were probably doing stadiums by then.

Not sure anything can top Mark with his head in a fridge screaming "YOU DON'T MAKE ME FEEL...." at the top of his lungs on stage. B)) Nah, not even his bro's three piece.

Yeah, I think that H&C were quite possible *the* best of the era. They had that great rock sound without the yobbiness that annoys me about a lot of other bands from the era. (sorry Chisel fans)

Here is some more H&C.

Touche, Mr. Raven.

I remember when that was released. Countdown & Molly...

-------------

'Space Invaders' by Player One may predate 'Computer Games', YouTube doesn't think so though. Definitely late 79 or early 80. Have to work today so can't actually research it.

Yeah, have to agree about Cold Chisel. I do like a few of their songs tho. Fave H&C is probably Talking to a Stranger. The only studio album of theirs that I owned was Ghost Nation tho, also had the best of.

Nah, I found much better Aussie music:

Good call. On the Aboriginal Australian side of music, Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu has been blowing everybody away with his singing talent. Sings in the Yolngu language and this is one of his best songs.....

OK, lets continue the game. Someone has to post a song called "Black Sabbath", by any band. Then the next person posts a song called [artist who did the Black Sabbath] song. How long can we go?

Always loved this song, eventhough it came out a few years before I was born....

Gubaba knows my feelings on this song (or least he should remember). Ah, to be a teenager again...

If you're gonna play Manowar, you gotta play MANOWAR, not an AMV

And yes, I and my friends looked just like those guys (the actors, not the band) back when this first came out.

I'm sure you will thrilled to know that none other than William Shatner will cover this song in his upcoming album "Searching for Major Tom". Other classics to be included are Bohemian Rhapsody, Space Oddity and Iron Man.

I cannot wait to get my hands on what will surely be the musical highlight of the year.

Good to see come Cobra Starship fans here, as well as Patrick Stump fans. I do look forward to the full album but that last short album was great.

Have you heard anything from the new Cobra Starship? I like it overall, but it's my least favorite.

I haven't heard it yet, but i will within the next few days. I remember seeing them open a few years ago on the Taste of Chaos Tour for 30 Seconds To Mars. They were great, and this is when their first album had just been released.

Well, I still like their first one the best. But Hot Mess was really good too.
