ALBUMS

  •  THE HUMAN LEAGUE: DARE: 1981: SYNTHPOP: 5 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: VINYL: The Human League’s third album was a departure in style from the first two from an electronic sound to a pop friendly album that would be a synthpop classic. “Don’t You Want Me” was oddly the 4th single from the album-and became a #1 hit all over the world. While the single is one of the signature songs of the 80’s- the album is outstanding also. Other favorites- “The Things That Dreams Are Made Of”, “Seconds”, “Love Action”, “The Sounds Of The Crowd.”

  • GEORGE HARRISON: GEORGE HARRISON: 1979:POP ROCK: 4 STARS OUT OF 5 STARS: VINYL: “Blow Away” is one of my favorite George songs- as a single in the US it went to #16. “Faster” was written about his love of Formula 1 racing, “Not Guilty” is a song left over from his days with The Beatles- it was originally meant for the White Album. George seemed happy during this period of time. His disillusion with the music industry would soon arise with his next album though.

  1. George may have become disillusioned with the music biz, but at least he didn’t get murdered like all the artists AllThingsThriller writes about!

  2. It was in the late 90s he was battling cancer at the time -some deranged person came into their home and attacked him. He didn’t suffer serious injuries but was already in a weakened shape due to cancer.

  3. Oh my God, that’s right! But it was pretty serious! The guy stabbed him several times in the chest and punctured a lung and came millimeters close to an artery! He thought the Beatles were witches and flew around on broomsticks?! What a horrible thing to happen while you’re fighting cancer. It’s like, “Gee, God, isn’t the cancer enough? Really? Had to throw the witches maniac in too???!!”

    • This is the kind of thing- even if you would have just a small amount of fame- would make you want security 24/7. He was lucky to have survived.
