How about any song written or performed by Carole King? Ya got everything from 60's hits to 70's yum to still performing today!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 12:39pm
Julie:

I don't think there's enough variety there. I think Bowie might be the best contender as far as a huge amount to pick from and many different sounds
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 12:40pm
Julie:

and I have been really wanting to dig more into Bowie.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 12:41pm
Granny Spicy Tuna (they/them):

Other songs of King's early period (through 1967) include "Half Way To Paradise" [Tony Orlando, recorded by Billy Fury in U.K.], "Take Good Care of My Baby" for Bobby Vee, "Up on the Roof" for the Drifters, "I'm into Something Good" for Earl-Jean (later recorded by Herman's Hermits), "One Fine Day" for the Chiffons, and "Pleasant Valley Sunday" for the Monkees (inspired by their move to suburban West Orange, New Jersey),[37] and "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman" for Aretha Franklin.[38] The duo wrote several songs recorded by Dusty Springfield, including "Goin' Back" and "Some of Your Lovin'."
That's variety!!!!

i was thinking I Had started my first show with Bowie but I guess it's my demo I am remembering.

I was about to say "sounds like Curve!" and then I googled it. Of course it sounds like Curve because it's yet another Dean Garcia project! (He has several.)
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 1:59pm
Julie:

Yes his name keeps popping up!
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 1:59pm
Julie:

Curve is one of those bands I feel like I should listen to more
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:04pm
talvi tulee:

Terve Julie, mitä kuuluu? Yes, it has been a while since I have listened to Curve - should make a habit more regular of it
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 2:05pm
Julie:

I've played SPC ECO too, that is also him.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm
talvi tulee:

also Milk & Kisses has been overlooked by me. It sounded a bit too poppy when it came out, which was when I was getting into their music. Heaven or Las Vegas was the first thing that really struck me as something I did not want to be without. And then the catalogue before that was a find indeed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:08pm
Ike:

Musically, Curve is quite similar to all the other Dean Garcia projects but I like Curve best because of Toni Halliday's vocals - lots of vocalists have collaborated with him but she's my fave. Mostly people just pay attention to their early stuff (from the early 90s) but I'd say the late-period self-published stuff ("New Adventures of Curve" etc.) is also great, though the quality of the lyrics went downhill.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 2:09pm
Julie:

def need to dig into them more
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:12pm
talvi tulee:

actually, is Cocteau Twins' milk & Kisses that dissimilar from what Curve were up to earlier during the 90s...? maybe Curve sounded more sinister if also poppier....
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:14pm
Ike:

They were absolutely my favorite 90s band because not too many others did "shoegaze" with a hard, driving edge but also female vocals. In fact I'm not sure I can think of any others besides, as you point out, Garbage. Some Curve fans HATED Garbage because of all the comparisons but I sort of liked them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:15pm
talvi tulee:

Dean Garcia outside Curve is something i have only heard only here, and even then having no clue what I am listening to. I am usually messing about in the kitchen (which is pretty much the same space as my living room where the sounds blast from and where the computer is) so I am often absent from the comment board for quite some lengths of time.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 2:15pm
Phillippe Bastille:

I think a Christmas set, a "Julie's favorites of 2019" set, and a set about hope and optimism and joy would just about do it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm

I never got into Garbage. But hope and optimism and joy would be what i needed.
Avatar 🦇 Swag For Life Member 2:16pm
Julie:

haha hmmm

I saw Garbage with Blondie they were fantastic

Speaking of which—BFOS!!

Julie:

at the Beacon no less, James! What a great show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:30pm
Ike:

Best Curve EPs and albums, in order of release: Blindfold EP, Frozen EP, Cherry EP (all three comped as "Pubic Fruit"), Doppelgänger, Cuckoo, Blackerthreetracker 1 & 2 EPs, Gift, and New Adventures. The last two were really criminally overlooked. Not as good but still interesting: Come Clean. So, a fair amount of material.

may I recommend a Finnish band fom 90s - Wilma. Especially their album Claudius. If you like Curve, you might like this too. Do not be put off by lyrics in Finnish, they are quite indistinct anyway. Do check it
