    Desert Island Discs

    Ok Zone Castaways, now is your opportunity to share the stuff that the castaways on Desert Island Discs do each week. Pretty simple really, you have to choose eight recordings (usually, but not always, music), a book and a luxury item that you would take if you were to be cast away on a desert...

    Our Song....ahhhhhh

    Over the years I have seen threads suggesting we find a songto be played before home games and adopted as our very own love song ; ) So if perhaps the most played song on UK radio stations over the last 50 years was written, played and sung by a Southend man in a band originally from...

    "I gotta feeling..."

    "...A feeling deep inside, Oh yeah!" So sang the Beatles. Anyway. pretty soon some positive news to cheer. I'll leave you with some lyrics from The Who. "Now I'm a Farmer..." Confused? Wait and see chaps and chapesses.

    RIP George Martin

    The man who brought us the Beatles. God bless George, without you the world would have been deprived the greatest band of all times (in my honest opinion). http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3483404/George-Martin-producer-Beatles-dies-aged-90.html?ito=social-facebook
  5. Itunes

    My Itunes has done something odd - all artists that start with "The" (Jam/Beatles etc) have become jumbled up seemingly randomly amongst the rest of the music. Annoying when I want to find a particular "The" band (such as The Band). It's ported the issue onto my Ipod too. Any idea how to put...

    10 Weirdest song lyrics of all time

    The Beeb have just published the results of the 10 weirdest song lyrics of all time competition, with the Killers coming in at no 1. Anyone got any better ones?? The Killers, Human "Are we human, or are we dancer?" The Beatles, I Am The Walrus "I am the eggman, they are the eggmen, I am...

  8. Best English city for music

    What city has produced the greatest English bands & artists. I love The Beatles, but for me it has to be Manchester - The Smiths, Roses, Happy Mondays, New Order....etc etc. Thoughts?
  9. Universally respected groups - The Beatles

    As per the other thread, I personally would find it bizarre that people wouldn't like the 4 Mop Tops from Liverpool - there's surely something for everyone? Simple poll, do you like The Beatles? And if not, why not? What's not to like?
  10. Uncle Leo

    Universally liked and respected groups

    I've never got people who say "I don't like The Beatles". The range of their work is such that there is surely something for everyone. Anyhow, there are people out there who don't like them. Are there any bands out there that no-one dislikes? And that have critical acclaim too? The Clash seem...

    Musical input welcome, but not necessarily going to be acted upon!

    So, as some of you know, I will be tying the knot again in October, and we've been set the task of coming up with some music to have playing in the background both for the ceremony and during the meal. We've managed to sort out the music for earlier on, and are part way through stuff for while...

    Faul McCartney

    Now, as we are all very well aware the original Paul McCartney was decapitated in a car crash in November 1966 and replaced by a (vague) lookee-likee, albeit with a different shaped face thanks to M15 intervention. Obviously the clues were all there in Beatles songs, album covers and...
  13. Long running bands

    What with the break up of REM, does any get a bit tired of bands that just seem to go on forever? When young and hungry, these bands produce their greatest work and then either vanish up their own butts (hello Radiohead) or just live on their past glories and release crap (The Rolling Stones for...

    The Beatles Greatest by Elvis Costello

    It makes very interesting reading for us that remember them. http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/rolling-stone-presents-the-100-greatest-beatles-songs-20110919
  15. Question Great British Anthems

    No not that god-awful dirge that Queen Liz uses as her ring tone.....Abbey Road are launching the search for "Anthems of our Time" so I thought this'll be a nice little thread for the web's favourite site. So shall we say from 1900-2011, anthemic choons, be it rock, pop, classical, jazz etc...

    Chipper's Guide To F1 Stars

    My lad, in his infinite wisdom, is commemorating his 14th birthday by writing an a-b-c guide to the 2010 Formula One racing season. Now, normally, with petrolheads, they look and sound particularly trainspotterish about the sport. He, though, isn't. This is some of what he's written so far on...

    Question Men watching reality TV.

    As were at home this weekend and as a home game involves me leaving at 11am and not getting back till 6.30pm I have a kind of unwritten agreement with the Mrs that I wont go out with the lads for a few beers on a home weekend as its not fair to clear off all day then all night. However this...

  20. Death of music icons

    What with Jacko dying, who in your OPINION, had the biggest influence on music worldwide? Would we have had pop music itself without Elvis, in turn would we have had the Beatles...etc..etc..etc
