I get slightly annoyed by this sort of sentiment. Her 80s stuff is patchy. Johnny Cash (who is venerated as some sort of God-head amongst rock converts to country) did about 5 years of good stuff in the 60s, and 5 good records in the 90s. The overwhelming majority of the remainder is utter, utter bilge. Dolly isn't quite venerated to the same degree in the same circles, in spite of having done less turd.

What an insipid post. Well done Glice.

Girls Aloud "Speak French", in spite of the lyrics being a truimph of whatthefucktheytalkinabaht-ness. Still, who pays attention the wordsmithery of pop? It's all about the "grain" of the voice, innit?

I'm not sure where you're coming from, but then neither were you apparently. I never said anything about Johnny Cash. I just didn't want my love of Dolly's classic early singles to be confused with the "Theme from the Body Guard" and "Islands in the Stream" which for many of the youngsters on this board is exactly what they think of as Dolly's early days.

When it comes to absolutely awful pop power ballads, Cash never went there (since you inserted this dodgy comparison), while Dolly paid all of the plastic surgery bills for decades. However, I wasn't trying to post about her shit to begin with, but to celebrate her awesome songs like "Here You Come Again" and "Coat of Many Colors".

I dunno what's happening pop-wise at the moment. I'm sure Girls Aloud are currently concocting some monolithic slice of sonic wonderment in their sequinned castle right now, so I guess I'll just wait for that. Until then, i suppose I'll just hang around to see if Mick Ronson has decided to choke on his own faeces yet. One has to live in hope, doesn't one.

Uh, surely you mean Mark Ronson? Mick Ronson is sadly no longer with us, and as we all know, one note from his Les Paul sounds way better than Mark Ronson's Jive Bunny updates.

Yeah, I was just talking cack, in fairness. Dolly has done some good stuff in the 80s, but there's a fair amount of cack in there.

If you think Cash never did pop power-ballads, you really should hear some of the stuff he put out in the 80s. He's done some of the shittest music I've ever heard.

60s pop rules:
the zombies - she's not there & time of the season
lee hazlewood + nancy sinatra - some velvet morning
nancy sinatra - these boots are made for walkin
and like girl group stuff from the early 60s

most of what blondie did qualifies as pop
lots of disco

Pookie reminded me on another thread of a little gem by Pet Shop Boys called ''The Truck-Driver and His Mate''. Such a cool song.


Parked inside the lay-by
their destination can wait
dancing in the moonlight
the truck-driver and his mate

Acting out of compulsion
after hours sitting in the van
taking coals to Newcastle
talking man to man

Loyal to the point of madness
solemn as an act of fate
dancing in the moonlight
the truck-driver and his mate
