COUNTDOWN IS BACK THIS JANUARY, 2019 ... ON rage !!!!! Stay tuned below with regular Countdown full archival information for each Countdown episode rage shall be airing every Saturday throughout January ...
Margaret and David from At The Movies guest program Rage are going to be on the morning and late night of Saturday February 16 on ABC. I wonder if Margaret, David or both are going to pick some of the songs from the soundtrack of the 1970s and '80s movies as featured in Rage Gets Soundtracked special which was screened on Saturday September 11 2010 in a playlist.
I am actually quite disappointed with David's and Margret's playlist, sure.... There are some GREAT things like Madonna with Gambler, Laura Branigan with Self Control, The DOGS IN SPACE section and Michael Hutchence's Rooms For The Memory but come on, the rest? ... I expected some more OBSCURE pieces overall!... Love Perfusion from Madonna? REALLY!!!!!!!
I had never seen Laura Branigan's Self Control on Rage, this may be the first ever airing. I remember asking for it in 2004 when she died but we didn't even get a tribute. Fortunately they played the episode of Countdown that she hosted in the Retro season in Jan 2005 after a few of us had been asking for Laura clips.
I think David and Margaret did a great job considering their background isn't music and I'm sure they were given a bit of a helping hand with the videos. But yes, it is annoying when '00's videos pop up on guest programmers playlists.
