Under rated music

Lets take a break from all the politics, economics, and social issues today. I will share what, in my opinion, are some of the most under rated bands. They're mostly 80's bands that came and went without a big buzz.

First off, Simple Minds:

First time I ever heard of this scottish band was on "The Breakfast Club's" closing credits. A song called "don't you forget about me" was playing as Judd Nelson ends the movie. I really recommend this song, along with "Waterfront" and "alive and kicking."

Duran Duran was a very famous band. They were video pioneers that made fun of themselves in their videos. But the band broke up and had to change their members a number of times. Over the years, that just unwinded their fan base. Now the band got back together, and they're producing the same quality of music.

Nazareth gets the award for most under rated band. Their first album was in 1971, with two very nice songs, "Red Light Lady" and "The King is dead."

The Dandy Warhols is a band from Portland, Oregon that gained popularity in Europe. They got into the main stream because of the song "Bohemian like you" that was used in lots of advertisements and movies... but they have lots of other nice songs like "We used to be friends," "you were the last high," and they even sang about prophet mohammed.

I'm a very big fan of The Dandy Warhols. It began with my obsession with that one song "we used to be friends" (it gets sooo stuck in one's head. "Come on now honey, bring it on.. blah blah) or that rather soothing "You come in burned." I must've downloaded most of their stuff. But I had no idea they sang about Prophet Mohammed..! interesting.

Can a name be provided, please? I'm DLing!

Strav, wonder no more about Duran Duran.. they're still at it. All I'm left wondering about is where the hell are you? Why didn't you come to the meeting?

Farooha, now "bring it on bring it on now" is in my head, thank you very much. The song "Mohammad" was pretty famous too.. it was in their album "Thirteen tales from Bohemia"

Here's the album.. you can listen to samples

Carefully choose the initial two cards (starting capital), do not be tempted to play too many hands. If you hit your weak hand and examine the situation that you are worse than your opponent card system - fit (fold). Not worth playing each card. Poker is not just your card - it is also an opponent and his cards. Do not play the king of four only because the king is a strong card. Wait until the king comes with another king or an ace. Then aggressively enter the game! At the beginning of the Hold 'em limit your hands with which you enter the awards to: AA, KK, QQ, AK, AQ, AJ, JJ, 10-10. Over time, as experience is gained, you can expand your range of hands.
To sum up - play by a simple rule - only enter with strong cards and if you have a good hand firmly place poker money! Bluffs and sharp piercing leave professionals. Just so you have a chance to be one of them.

Carefully watch your opponents play, determine how they represent their style of texas holdem play - it'll help you to make informed decisions. Whether they are careful but aggressive players (tight-aggressive), or on the contrary, you are dealing with an aggressive maniac (loose-aggresive), who regardless of their card raises the stakes. Poker is not just our cards - this is reading your opponents, their behavior and try to estimate their cards. If you accurately determine who you play bonuses, you will have fun this game and increase your chances of winning.
Properly manage its own budget (bankroll management).
Skilful manage your budget with a few simple rules. When you play at the tables 0.5 / $ 1 Fixed Limit, your budget is a minimum of $ 300, preferably $ 500. When you lose, do not try to make up for losses, end the poker game. When you lose what you have earned before, go back to the lower limit and win up again, you'll be able to play on the tables with a higher limit.
