    I love all types of music. In relation to your theme, I used to really like this one:

    https://youtu.be/n4RjJKxsamQ

    I don’t think it brought down the Wall but it certainly echoes the sentiment of the time.
    It was used in every report about unification in the years following the wall coming down. It was so overplayed that it's one of 3 songs I can't stand anymore that I initially liked, but that's a question probably deserving its own thread.

    I hear you - and being no spring chicken myself, I still enjoy discovering bands from yesteryear. Spotify etc is very good for that
    Indeed. Huge fan of James now. Don't know how I let them slip under my radar.

    Very underrated band. The Verve are another great Manchester rock band from around that era.

    I remember staying in Germany for a Switzerland v Scotland game in Berne in 1991, there was no escape from that bloody song! 😠

    It’s amazing how some many icon moments in time, are associated with music
    The Cars (Drive) and the Ethiopian famine, comes to mind

    Ach, it matters not I suppose. I wouldn’t say a band from Dunbar or Musselburgh, for example, were from Edinburgh, nor that the Verve were from Manchester.

    Back on topic, I quite like the Verve and also Richard Ashcroft’s solo albums.

    I'm going to stop coming on this thread because it starts that song going off in my head on endless repeat.

    So to bring the thread back to topic. I'm in the UK just now, having an Italian meal in Glasgow. There is "fairly" loud what I would call freeform jazz playing. Its doing my head in and as nice as the food is I won't be back because of this. So, original question...do we need music everywhere we go? As much as I love music the answer for me is no.
