And here is a really obscure one. Most don't know that Patty Duke had somewhat of a singing career....


I am not surprised that her singing career didn't amount to much. The song is "pleasant" but doesn't really do much me.

There were several actresses that had varying success with trying to spin an acting career into a recording career. Shelley Fabares has great success with "Johnny Angel."

Here is one from Annette Funicello. This is NOT a feminist song to be sure!;)

This is from a Finnish band/project called Dark Sarah. They call themselves “cinematic metal”, which I thought odd till I began listening to them more. The first three albums are a continuous story. The music sometimes seems to me a cross among Danny Elfman, Andrew Looyd Weber, and After Forever.

While I’m on Eurometal, here’s one from Ayreon, whose albums all tell stories. This album is about a man who’s on Mars when humankind anihilates itself. He goes on a trip through time and later space on something like a holodeck.

Not old, not sure if it is forgotten, but I was unaware of it. I hate to do this ,but it is unfamiliar to me.

Everything from the hair metal era was 30-40ish years ago, so I suppose it all qualifies as old. Dokken wasn't exactly obscure, but they weren't the biggest name from the time. I happen to think they were one of the best. Might be getting close to forgotten, I sure don't ever hear them mentioned anymore.

'Rammstein' is a German band, and their song 'Du Hast' is my favorite.

Kraftwerk is a German band formed in Düsseldorf, Germany in 1970, and are considered to be the pioneers in electronic music. At the beginning of the song (in the background) you can hear morse code for the word 'radioactivity.'

radioactivity, is in the air for you and me

Pushing 50 now, so this one's old, but what a version of 40,000 Headmen - Stevie Winwood and company at their best:
