Anyway was thinking for this Friday tunes thread in honor of rage, post music videos you've discovered on rage that you think you'd never of hear of them through any other form otherwise. I could post probably thousands from rage's new music Friday night for the last 14 years or so but I thought I best stick to more rare ones which probabaly not many people of heard of & more obscure bands.
ABC: best tax expense ever. Nice milestone; while I'm not into video clips for music at all RAGE is one of those Australian institutions in the music scene that continues to beat the commercial alternatives hands down
Rage was great although IIRC they only displayed the song info @ the start of the song, not the start and end which i didnt like. I lost plenty of sat mornings watching the last however long to catch the top 10 or so.
I don't know how many times I've found myself mesmerised after a big Saturday night out only to come home and find an awesome musician/band (touring the country at the time or not) as the guest programmer.
It's awesome to get the insight for that muso/bands influences and even better at the back catalogue of video clips that the ABC must have on file (I do wonder how they licence that stuff).
Whilst I can't say that I watch it religiously, I would actually dig it if the ABC actually ran it as its own channel.
my 1st rage video contained the hits of the day :-
toy soldiers - martika
lay your hands on me - bon jovi
dr feelgood - motley crue
jive bunny - lol
if i could turn back time - cher
right here waiting - richard marx
poison - alice cooper
dressed for success - roxette
i'll be loving you forever - new kids on the block
funky cold medina - tone loc
like a prayer - madonna
you know, all the hits of 1989. and people say that todays music is shit. jeez.
oh and i discovered muse on rage.
was touring the qld coast in a cover band at the time. every place we'd pull into, id go check the backwoods record stores to see if they had the showbiz album. wasnt til i returned to cairns a month later to find out that all my friends had a copy of the album. the rest is history :)
