Noddy is more garrulous, true.  But I'd suspect that - Cum On Feel The Noize and the Xmas song aside - even their number one singles like Skweeze Me, Pleeze Me may have limited crowd recognition.

Yeah, no argument there. Xmas, Cum On Feel The Noize and Mama Weer All Crazee Now is probably it as far as most people's awareness goes. But man, Gudbuy T'Jane, Far Far Away, Everyday, My Friend Stan.... I'm all in.

Latest Dave only setlist:

It's regressed from the final UK original lineup setlist (I was there!) dropping the stuff from that period and bringing in more hits:

Noddy & Co launching into that Xmas song on a hot June Sunday afternoon on the Pyramid would be a mind-bender

Sadly I think Noddy has hung up his singing boots and Dave Hill is all that's left of the original Slade.

They were always a great band live and produced some excellent melodic stuff too.

It was Noddy that brought it up:

(probably after some very leading questioning, admittedly)

Coz I Luv You is what got me into music. That and T Rex's Hot Love. Yet I've never seen either band. 

I once walked past Dave Hill of Slade on a Birmingham street and he was dressed in one of his all white stage outfits, one of the funniest sights I've seen, something like this one:

None of this is particularly controversial is it?  It is good, kinda.

It is somewhat obscure, but not thus controversial? (Love you YOAS, much, much respect)

A controversial music opinion would look something like this......

Bang Bang and then things got weird.

Jessie J - The Hotel Cafe, all her fans in L.A. 4 nights in a row.

This is lush, love this, Controversial?

 

Hello bamber.

 

You are right, of course - my attempts at controversy were feeble at best.

The above said, just wondered if this hits the controversial mark?

 

I'll listen to your track above tomorrow, as can't do so right now.

Happy New Year bamber.

Happy New Year back at you.

Apparently, some are happy with this.

OMG NO!

This sullies all that is good in the world.

This manages to be worse than the original.

BE WARNED! Avoid clicking play unless you are in a good place.

Blue Lines would be nowhere near as acclaimed if it didn't have 'Unfinished Sympathy'.

Like, it wouldn't even be close. 

Quite a dull, plodding LP apart from the big stirring centrepiece. Maxinquaye and Dummy utterly blow it out the water.

Even Safe From Harm does nothing for you?

To be fair, that's a strong intro. It definitely does something for me. There are good songs dotted around with thick basslines and nice fluttering vibey melodies. But much as I try, the charm wears off well before the end. Even as a big fan of lots of downtempo, noodling, serious-serious music, it just sags.

According to an aggregate of kazillions of critics' lists, Blue Lines is the 43rd best album of all time. Feels like a wild over-estimation, that. The 3rd best LP of the '90s stretches credulity for me too, though that might be about par for some.

I guess that's where critics and the general public diverge. According to this, it's not even in the top 10 for the year....

Could do with a bit more Foxbase Alpha, Just For A Day and Death Certificate — but yeah, I can get down with that top 10.

This is incredible - Spanish version of I Only Want to be With You. Was in Mexico recently and some guy was blasting out unironically by the pool. The 80s video takes it to another level altogether:
 

 

A lot of us latin americans first knew these songs by Luis Miguel. He was HUGE in the 90s and even now. He's got a netflix series based on his life. I don't like him but you couldn't escape his music back then.

Also, this one, same thing:
