  1. From Live 75/85: Born in the USA Seeds The river War Darlington County (Does it count when you have to change the CD or flip the vinyl? But they were all from the same show)
  2. That's exactly the one I would go for. TOL is absolutely my favourite album. I can't help but being a child of the 80's, I got this album when a did my holy communion at 12 years and off course I loved it. But it wasn't until I was in college that I came to realise what a great album that was. I can understand lots of fans don't like it because of the 80's sound and the cheesy synths, but the sheer quality of the songs is wonderful: Brilliant disguise, Tougher than the rest, Walk like a man, One step up and Cautious man are examples of his best song writing ever. Combine that
  3. I guess everybody here knows the story about Bruce and Elvis Presley. Bruce saw him on Ed Sullivan in '58, became a life long fan, crawled over the fence at Graceland in 1975 and wrote "Fire" after he and Steve went to see Elvis in 1977. He send a demo to Elvis, but Elvis died before the demo arrived. I guess we all wondered what that song would be like when sung by The King ... Today I stumbled onto this video: "Fire" by Joey Figgiani & The Jordanaires. Joey Figgiani is a New York based singer-songwriter. In 2004 he put out an album called "Under the Memphis sun" where he was
  4. Week 14 in Belgium: Flanders: 1 - 1 - 1 - 4 - 5 - 5 - 9 - 6 - 7 - 7 - 13 - 15 - 8 - 28 Wallonia: 3 - 5 - 13 - 17 - 23 - 23 - 21 - 22 - 29 - 40 - 68 - 56 - 108 - 119
  5. Oh yes, it gets even more complicated when you dive deeper into it. The French-speaking Community (with Brussels as capital, remember?) itself is also divided in two regions: Wallonia (with Namur as capital) and Brussels (with Brussels as capital). So Brussels is the capital of Belgium, of the Flemisch Community, of the French-speaking Community and of its own Brussels Region (and un-officially the capital of Europe, since a lot of the institutions of the European Union are located in Brussels). And indeed, you also have a German-speaking Community in Belgium, with Eupen as capital. Polit
  6. Now that is a good question! And a complicated one I guess. What is usually seen as 'Brussels' is in fact a conglomeration of 19 cities. Together they have around 1.000.000 inhabitants. The city of Brussels itself is rather small and has around 180.000 inhabitants. To make it even more complicated, Brussels is the capital of Belgium, but also the capital of the Flemisch Community ànd capital of the French-speaking Community. So I'm also very curious who can lay their hand on the album sales in Brussels :-). The information on the Belgian Ultratop website doesn't answer that ques
  7. I guess Sietze1976 meant 'Flanders' instead of 'Wallonia' in the previous post. This is week 13 in Belgium: Flanders: 1 - 1 - 1 - 4 - 5 - 5 - 9 - 6 - 7 - 7 - 13 - 15 - 8 Wallonia: 3 - 5 - 13 - 17 - 23 - 23 - 21 - 22 - 29 - 40 - 68 - 56 - 108 Little jump upwards indeed in Flanders, while LTY is now really on the way out in Wallonia. In theory the charts go to number 200. In those lower regions you can find old albums like 'Brothers in arms' by Dire Straits or 'A&M' by Arctic Monkeys. The sales numbers for those albums may be around a few dozens. LTY hasn't

  12. Thanks! Nice to have them again, there were some nice covers in that project.
  13. Many thanks! I did find that webpage, I just didn't read it carefully enough to discover the links behind the song titles. So thanks again for this little christmas present :-). TRB
  14. Today I wanted to listen to my copy of "Nebraska Revisited", the project of some GL-members who covered the entire Nebraska album (2003 I think?), but my CD just gave a massive roar instead of music. Does anyone know where I can download these tracks or does anybody has them in flac or HQ mp3's?
