Wow, Monday night's playlist is already on the website, and contains some great clips including Toni Basil's 'Over My Head'! I'm not sure what the theme is, though.
Monday night's playlist is up here http://www.abc.net.au/rage/archive/s4789396.htm
The theme appears to be artists who've been in groups and released music as a solo act... though I'm not sure how Toni Basil, Pat Benatar, Sinead O'Connor, Divinyls, Innocence or Monie Love fit into that.
Chrysalis label maybe
Some of those acts were on Festival locally, but Chrysalis for international releases.
I wonder why rage chose to do a special on Chrysalis artists? It's not really like it would be a well-known label by the general public. EMI, they might have heard of, but not really this. Still, it's a good episode.
I had been suggesting Toni Basil's 'Over My Head' for a while, several years back. I don't really make requests/suggestions these days, as I figure they'll just play what they want to. But maybe they had noted it down as one to look for in the archives.
this thread for the benefit of Jason and any others who are used to my Monday playlist posts. Tonight's playlist was posted on the rage website on the weekend, and is linked above.
Jellybean with Just A Mirage and The Real Thing!!!!!
Toni Basil with Over My Head!!!!!
And Sinead O'Connor with MC Lyte with i Want Your Hands On me which I have requested for years!

We are very spoilt tonight and this month with Countdown galore. It really is 80s heaven x
Some very RARE clips tonight which I have wanted for a long time
Terrible nineties Triple J playlist tonight.
I hope that doesn't mean Week 4 of Retro month has moved into "Recovery" mode.
I was hoping you'd relieved me of posting this one, Brad...

It seems to be the way that after one of the best vault episodes ever, we get a c r a p one.
Not meaning to be disrespectful, but yet another January death (a member of Judas Priest), meaning yet another tribute that will impact on the Vault if they play (and repeat) a tribute.

UGH! They really are making us pay for retro month aren't they?
It's happened every February. They must think they've aired 80s material to death in January, so they avoid it for a while. It'll come back soon enough. It's far more popular than anything post-80s.
The trouble with rage post 80s is that e.g. when they have a Vault playlist of a year from the 90s, 99% of it (if not 100%) will be 'alternative' music, as though that was the only music being made in the 90s. Never mind that they play this sort of music all the time.
I would love for them to do some 90s dance Vault episodes, but it seems the only 90s dance stuff they're familiar with is cr@ppy late 90s trash or ultra-commercial stuff.
80s female artists special tonight:
SADE Love Is Stronger Than Pride

Wow, I take back what I said about Rage avoiding eighties or female pop artists for awhile.
Haha, I missed the headache.
Great rare clip, even though they'll probably play it, and 'Nothing's Gonna Stop Me Now', in the wrong aspect ratio.
**** it! Missed it again. Will pay good price for a copy of this. No black bars please.

That is an awesome lineup of music. Right up my alley, so I will enjoy the hell out of that.
But I don't think it's really in the spirit of the "Vault" either. An easy rule of thumb for me - if the clips are from the 16:9 (widescreen) era, then they've come from the cupboard, not the vault.
Yeah, it's not that the music is awful (though it's not to my taste apart from Jill Scott), it's that it isn't Retro (or "Vault"). There needs to be a clear line drawn in the sand defining where "retro" begins. I would feasibly allow the Fugees/Lauryn Hill stuff from the 90s as the very newest, but absolutely not the stuff from the 2000s.
Sounds good Nathan. Would love a copy. Are you able to upload 'Shame' to Youtube? The only vid for it is the 'Blocked in the UK' and plays the song but the video is all over the place. I think it's the same with 'Circle in the Sand'. Can you upload that one too?
@Luuuuc - " if the clips are from the 16:9 (widescreen) era, then they've come from the cupboard, not the vault."
What about faux-widescreen letterboxed 4:3 clips which were the occasional rage in the '80s? :smiley:
Ummm... can I use the old school teacher copout and call that "the exception that proves the rule"? :wink:
The vault runs for just over 3 hours tonight... so let's have a dance special! Except it's another late 90s/early 00s special; the third one, in fact. Meanwhile, a late 80s/early 90s dance vault has never aired.

The post-January backlash continues.
As of 6.15pm Monday, 8 hours after it was posted, the Rage post on Facebook has only 40 'like' responses and just 3 comments, only one of which is vaguely complimentary. Compare this to true 70s & 80s retro nights, which often have hundreds upon hundreds of 'likes' and encouraging comments too many to count. I think it's quite obvious what the Rage watchers really want.
I've been suggesting a Vault with many of these clips for a few years now. I'm definitely someone who is interested in this particular Vault as it features dance and electronica videos from the late 90s/early 00s that were played during the 4:30AM timeslot on rage. It would appeal more to a niche cult audience and I didn't expect it would have too many likes and comments. Though I'm glad they are catering for this particular genre. If Nathan reads this, there is an opportunity to grab many rare clips that haven't been shown in years and are not available on Youtube, such as...
LOCK'N'LOAD Blow Ya Mind (UK #6, Aus #45)
A.T.G.O.C. Repeated Love (UK #38)
LOST 'N' ALIVE Everything I Play
EVERYTHING BUT THE GIRL VS SOUL VISION Tracey In My Room (UK #34)
WICKED PHUNKER Jungle Boogie
SMASH 'N' GRAB Drive Me Crazy (Aus #45)
There might be a few more there as well, however, those are the ones I am aware of that are not on Youtube and haven't been aired in many years.
^ I did read this. My gripe wasn't so much that this was being shown, just that they've now done 3 late 90s/early 00s dance/electronic music specials, but haven't touched the late 80s/early 90s for a dance-themed vault. There are some clips shown on tonight's show that I intend to keep. There are several that I don't know, though (at least by title). Good for you that they're showing multiple clips they have been asking for.
