4. GLORYLAND BY DARYL HALL AND THE SOUND OF BLACKNESS(USA 94)
The 1990s was the era of the cool, smooth rock sound(Bryan Adams etc) as well as the hard grunge type(Nirvana and co). Daryl Hall and the Sound of Blackness take on this traditional beast of a song which expulsed the spirit of America.The land of the brave and free. It is a country that one can achieve whatever they desire so long as they work for it and strive for it. You can get to Gloryland is you train hard and persevere. The video isn’t that great , it features US icons such as Disneyland , Statue of Liberty and White House as well as Diana Ross’s unforgettably jinxing Roberto Baggio in Chicago. Daryl Hall is a veteran Pop Rock singer who is still going strong at age 76 , has had hits from the 1980s and has his own television series since 2007 “Live from Daryl’s House” in which he performs with guest artists.
