His passing was really sad, and not only because of his relatively young age. Faithless were amazing.

I must confess I like Eurodance, I wouldn't say it was necessarily good music (that is debatable) but it was the soundtrack to my teenage years. Listening to dance music like E-Rotic, Captain Jack, 2 Brothers on the 4th Floor, Cappella, 2Fabiola, Sylver, ... is a huge nostalgia/melancholia trip to me.

I will add some dance music was, in my opinion, really good. Ace Of Base for example, still sounds fresh today.
KLF were quite groundbreaking, so if you ignore the controversy surrounding them, they created some really good dance music (I recommend the original "pure trance" version of "What Time Is Love", which was later recycled in the album version of "Justified and Ancient" without Tammy Wynette).
Gala and especially Faithless stood out for their quality of lyrics combined with danceable music.

RIP Maxi Jazz



PS: we also lost Terry Hall of the Specials and Fun Boy Three in late 2022

In Belgium too, "Bohemian Rhapsody" is at nr 1 of those "all time charts" every single year since as long as I can remember. Bryan Adams' "Summer of 69" often at nr 2.

I wonder if people don't massively vote for "Bohemian Rhapsody" purely out of habit or tradition when those annual "all time charts" come up. I cannot imagine the same song remaining at nr 1 for so many consecutive years otherwise, if people really voted based on their (changing) taste in music.

PS "Innuendo" is the best Queen song in my opinion.

From the age of thirteen, her popularity has increased, especially through her YouTube channel and social media.

This piece, Moonlight Sonata (3rd Movement) was recorded in 2016 when she was 17 years old and is the last one so far. Since around 2018 she's disappeared from all social media. I really hope she's doing well.

Oh yeah, watch that cute smile at the end.
After a hiatus of 7 years Tina Šetkić is back in the band Spin Twice. She uploaded a new video on her YouTube channel Tina S.

“I’ve Been Let Down” (Mazzy Star), then “Commissioning a Symphony in C” (Cake), then “Fell in Love with a Girl” (White Stripes), followed by “Number One Blind” (Veruca Salt).
