A music review of 2019

Recommended Posts

Here's a rather hastily compiled music themed review of 2019. If you can Bingo on 4 bands or songs, let's have a beer! For added fun, add your own, should be an eclectic mix.

[First time thread starter, be gentle - mods delete move as needed]

This is intended as a bit of fun, please take it that way. Links to YT vids.

After last year’s prelimary final, many had Fell on Black Days. However, looking into 2020, it was fair to think we were heading into the Superunknown. Many thought after a bit of Get Some Go Again at the trade table, we were primed to become a Power Player, as obviously we all thought you Can’t Stop Progress.

However, early results indicated that other coaches had looked at Demon Game Plan 19 and said  Shallow Be Thy Game, Goodwin”. They studied well and appeared to Know Your Enemy. Our 2020 plan appeared to continue to consist of Bombs Away, which didn’t bode well. We had lost some Crucial Velocity, 2019 was but a Warped memory, and 2020 looked very Sick (or was it us supporters) as we were Outshined game after game. The Violins were playing a Eulogy for us early as we continued Falling Apart. Going from 4th to 17th was as big a surprise as a H00ker with a Pns. Perhaps some players thought 2020 would be a Victory Lap and some of the selections, according to Demonlanders, were just Like Suicide.

Some players looked as though they were thinking the ball was a Burden in My Hand, and some just looked like they had gone to Sleep. Steven May, who we all thought might be The Regulator, was for vast periods unsighted. Many Demonlanders who had been viewed as Profits of Doom after bad losses of 2018, appeared to in hindsight, be correct. Circus Maximus continued with aplomb, but a lot of players appeared to perhaps think this AFL gig was The Land of Pleasant Living, with many Demonlanders thinking said players needed to Wake Up and grab a Fistful of Steel. We no longer had Bulls on Parade as we did in 2018 (although CP5 started to look like one) and our Supporting Caste of 2018 were also MIA or traded.

The coach’s pressers felt like they were sometimes filled with Speculative Fiction (particularly post Syd R22) and there was much unrest about the coach on Demonland, with many indicating he was a Failed Imagineer. There was almost a Civil War on Demonland and it became clear some would not be Making Friends. Many really didn't want to become Todays Empire, Tomorrow’s Ashes and wanted to pen a letter to Dear Coaches Corner, pointing out what they thought obvious flaws in what was turning into a Funeral Procession. Some had advice on How to Clean Everything. Some Demonlanders also wanted a Status Update from President and or CEO.

Toward the end of the year it really was a Bad Scene, a total Failure. In round 22, we saw CP5 on the phone looking like he was ready to do a bit of Killing in the Name [Ed: privileged to be at this show], and he may have been thinking the lines from that song’s eponymous chorus. Some Demonlanders posited we may have a Township Rebellion on our hand, with one poster saying the inside word was some players could make a bid for Freedom from rather than taking a Bullet in the Head by staying on.

When all was said and done, it's perhaps true our season and result could only be reflected by one song: Bottom. This was compounded as a Flood of negativity washed over the club and we were a bit of a Laughing Stock. However, on the positive side, it gave the club some much needed Illumination [Ed: was anyone else at Offshore 2000? Epic], and shows what will be needed in 2020 to avoid being Down in a Hole again.

Looking into 2020, Demonlanders are no doubt hoping we Take the Power Back, and crack the whip on some players to Pushit, because if one song sums our our feeling post prelim, it’s Stinkfist. Prelims aren’t enough, we need more, nothing seems to satisfy (except a flag).

Here’s to 2020, where the Demons Blow Up the Outside World.

Go Dees.

Great thread.

I'm a reflective type of guy. 

This sums up my relationship with the Dee's this year

No more carefree laughter
Silence ever after
Walking through an empty house
Tears in my eyes
This is where the story ends
This is goodbye
Knowing me, knowing you (a-ha)
There is nothing we can do
Knowing me, knowing you (a-ha)
We just have to face it
This time we're through
Breaking up is never easy, I know
But I have to go
Knowing me, knowing you
It's the best I can do
Memories, good days, bad days
They'll be with me always
In these old familiar rooms
Children would play
Now there's only emptiness
Nothing to say
Knowing me, knowing you (a-ha)
There is nothing we can do
Knowing me, knowing you (a-ha)
We just have to face it
This time we're through
Breaking up

Very good - his Rusty Cage cover is ace. I obviously could have gone a lot wider with the music and left a lot of good stuff out (most is from my high rotation) this is a good one. Actually, a bunch of Pennywise songs sums us up, too.

I'd say this sums up the relationship between the players and coaches.

and the fans and the coaches.

Includes the classic line, "we'll try being kinder when you try being smarter"


The game plan could be summed up by the opening refrain from the wonderful Cosmic Psychos

One of my favourite bands in the world is touring next year and you just need to change the word "band" with "club" and it sums up our season:

 

and the seasons almost over, so another Psychos classic sums up spring time with no more time wasted watching us handball to each other 1m apart:

and... their doco is one of the best you'll see. Insane storyline: 

 

Nice thread @Superunknown

Better than talkin about footy!

    SOCIAL DISTANCING by George on the Outer

    It was good to see the MFC players practicing the directives about social distancing at the game against West Coast.  Pity was that they continued to do so after the first bounce of the ball, as they allowed numerous WCE players run around un-hindered, with not a Melbourne player within 1.5 metres of them! They then found themselves looking at nearly a 5 goal deficit at the first break, which was to be essentially the final margin for the game. It is difficult to judge exactly what is going

    BEST IN SHOW by Whispering Jack

    I am writing this knowing that the AFL has deemed that the opening round of competition will proceed but fully believing that it should not.  The world is going through cataclysmic change as a result of the overwhelming spread of the Covid-19 virus and I agree that a distraction like sport would be good for the public. However, while the physical threat to the population is bad enough, there are other  issues to be addressed including the mental health of the community and the effects on th

    TASSIE DEVILS by Van Demon

    If you were looking for something new from the Demons that wasn’t there last year, you didn’t have to look further than the perfectly trimmed grass surface of UTAS Stadium last night as the team steamrolled the Hawks to record a comprehensive 32-point victory to complete their Marsh Community Series commitments for 2020. One new thing was the fact that for the second Marsh game in a row, the team finished full of running and they dominated the second half without the presence or the dominan

    SOUTH OF THE BORDER by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons will go into their final Marsh Series match with a strong lineup against the Hawks in Tasmania. Both Max Gawn and Steven May, who were recovering from injuries in first Marsh Series match, have both been named. It is unclear whether Max will be on restricted minutes and will likely get breaks in the ruck with Sam Weideman and rookie Luke Jackson getting their turns in the middle. Angus Brayshaw will be getting his first taste of competitive football despite playing in last week’s

    KANGAROO CAUGHT by Whispering Jack

    There was a fair amount of debate in our area as to whether the game warranted a full blown match report because it was felt that it was really an elevated version of a training session with match simulation but against a team in opposition colours. Although notionally the stronger side, North seemed to be using the occasion for the purpose of working on aspects of their game plan, one of the features of which seemed to be based on taking the longest possible route out of defence and good luck w

    JUST AN ABERRATION by Whispering Jack

    Melbourne unveiled its top recruits with new fitness boss Darren Burgess and mid-sized bull Christian Petracca sharing top billing in the team’s Marsh Community Series opener in front of 3,095 football starved fans at Casey Fields and thousands of others watching on screens of various shapes and sizes.  What they saw was a different Melbourne to the one that failed to run out its JLT Series games last year and then crashed in a heap early in the season proper with performances lacking the z

    CROWDOWN by Paddy Gosch

    The Demons open their 2020 season account with a "home" game against the Adelaide Crows at Casey Fields. It’s been more than 5 and half agonising months for the team and supporters who are eager to atone for the disappointing 2019 season which saw the Dees go from Preliminary Finalist to 2nd bottom on the ladder. The preseason campaign has been a hard slog with the addition of respected High Performance Manager Darren Burgess. We caught a glimpse of the gut busting sessions in the Melbourne

    THE YEAR THE SKY FELL by The Oracle

    After a number of years of linear movement up the ladder, the Melbourne Football Club unexpectedly went into serious decline in 2019, slumping from fourth to 17th in a season that coach Simon Goodwin described “a complete wipe-out”. Those around the club who tried to analyse the apocalyptic events that unfolded during the year were hard pressed to find a single reason for the debacle but the most plausible explanation was that the club’s troubles stemmed from a lack of fitness and injuries that

    BACK IN STYLE by Whispering Jack

    From the moment when the Elton John character in the movie “Rocketman” burst into its opening scene dressed as a flamboyant demon on his way to an addiction rehabilitation session, the game was on. Here was yet another film about a person gifted with a meteoric rise to stardom finding coke, booze and a hedonistic lifestyle that led directly to a destructive crash into the abyss. Ultimately, these stories end in total disaster (“A Star is Born”, “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Judy”) but this one resulted

    THE TRADING CHRONICLES 2019

    PART ONE - OVERTURE  I have a disclaimer at the outset. I’m not a fan of the races - be they horses or motors of any kind. Once the final siren sounds on the football season, I find the month or so that follows and corresponds roughly with the Spring Racing Carnival to be the most boring time of the year for sports fans. You turn on the radio and you’re confronted by the monotonous drone of a self-proclaimed racing expert or by the nasally twang of an ex-jockey banging on about the equine p

    CHANGES 2019 by The Oracle

    PART 1 - IT’S A LITTLE MORE COMPLICATED THIS TIME This year’s free agency, trade and draft period will see the usual drama and upheaval as the AFL’s 18 clubs seek to better their lists in order to challenge for finals and possibly premiership honours. Long before the final siren sounded on the season just over a week ago, the maneuvering was under way with player agents and clubs discussing possible player movements and in some cases, deals had already been done.  Yesterday, the r

    HOW FAR SOUTH? by George on the Outer

    It was appropriate that Melbourne was playing its last game of season 2019 in Hobart.  After all, how much further south could the team go? And much as it has done in many of the previous 22 games, the side managed to extract a loss from a winning position by simply giving the ball back to the opposition time and time again. In fact, they gave it back to the opposition to the tune of 53 points from turnovers while, by way of contrast North Melbourne contributed  only 17 points to their oppo
