    Tame Impala have been big here downunder for a decade and I really enjoy their mood of music and live shows.

    In recent years, they've become much more popular in the states - with about five top-5...

    Diana did that in a few minutes one lazy afternoon. Earlier that day, she had discovered the Jackson 5. ;)

    'A boisterous disco track' would probably do wonders for Diana in Europe, however, and chart success on the continent is good promo material for other territories.

    I'd be surprised if a really...

    All day long, I hear my telephone ring. Friends calling giving their advice.

    It is computer generated 'abbatars'. If you watch the video for 'I Still Have Faith in You' on YouTube, you will see an example of them in the final minute of the clip.

    The abbatars will...

    It's a thread comparing Miss Ross' first release in years with that of a contemporary artist doing much the same thing.

    The time to have done that would've been around 1986-89 - 25th anniversary - a new album and world tour by Diana, Mary & Cindy.

    You wouldn't have even had to use '25 years since group formed'. ...

    Despite being off the scene for nearly 40 years, ABBA and their label are professionals.

    That's the main difference.

    The only thing that could probably have overshadowed this 'reunion' of...

    Probably Diana's best single release in 30 years.

    Hope it has a chance of doing well in the charts [[including dance charts). Probably needs a music video to have any chance though.

    Abba have a huge advantage in the ability to write, arrange & produce their own songs. And there will be music videos [even it fhey just feature 'abbatars'] to further promote the singles. Plus the...

    I only ever bought three Supremes compilations.

    Best thing about 'I am Me' as a closing song is that you go 'oh thank gawd, the album's finished' ;)

    Probably 'Give Up' from the 'diana' album. Such an up-tempo song, it makes you just want to flip the record and play the whole thing over again.

    The preparation/filming of Lady Sings the Blues obviously had an impact on Diana's releases during this time.

    Her TV special 'Diana' as well as the soundtrack album was another release for her...

    Me too.

    I think it's rather bizarre - and perhaps childish - to expect fans of anyone or anything to be blindly in love and 'loyal' [[whatever that means in the context of an entertainer).

  21. Diana not the only NYC concert cancelled due to Mother Nature

    It would have been too ironic if Diana had been onstage at the Manilow moment:

    Keep it the way it is.

    There will always be someone, perhaps some new member, who will spam a ton of posts about random songs or other trivia.

    Why pollute the Motown thread with these?

    Sadly, Motown wasn't up to it anymore. Diana had greater success in the UK [and the rest of the world] than in the US through the 80s. She should probably have taken advantage of this.

    It was 'of its' time'. Like Olivia Newton-John's 'Physical' or Diana's 'Work That Body' it probably wouldn't have worked any time outside of the early 80s.
