Why close thread?
OK, here’s the song I was thinking of - not quite synth pop, but this sure doesn’t sound like the Scorpions I was into in grade school...
Started out as basically a one man band and grew to a full band when interest in their music grew and required live shows.
Started out as basically prog rock and by the last 2 -3 albums went almost full on metal rock.
And were also a sublime alt-rock act with catchy songs in between the early prog and the metal prog years.
Rod Stewart went from being one of the greatest rock and blues singers to a lounge act.

The Young Rascals became The Rascals... I’m just screwin’ around.
Seriously though, The Moody Blues. After Go Now, their first album which consisted of R&B and “Merseybeat” songs; radically changed and went all... they went all; well Moody Bluesy... spacey and never looked back.
Yes. Their/his first project was like psychedelia. Then they did 2-3 albums of something like The Orb crossed with Pink Floyd. That middle period was not at all unlike what Blackfield became. Then they were a bit like prog with some metal, but still tuneful. Finally, they got a bit more metal and much less tuneful (and a bit worse for me). Fear of a Blank Planet was the beginning of the end.
I think you get a sense of where it was going here - in 1968. This is one wild track.
Not a band; but Chip Taylor (songwriter; Hall of Fame inductee Chip Taylor) went from Wild Thing (Garage) to Angel In The Morning (Pop) to legit Country.
Well summarized... R.I.P.
Again; not a band, but... Catano Veloso began as a Brazilian Tropical creator and revolutionary to a visionary Psychedelic artist in 1969 and latter to a torchbearer and legend of smooth Brazilian Basa... but always his way. By way of Bahia.
Jethro Tull. First album, ”This Was”, is more british blues with a jazzy feel. Mick Abrahams left just after one record.
”This Was” is actually the Tull album I play most.
FOAB/Nil Recurring were pretty abrasive, probably the peak of that heavy sound. I found The Incident to be quite tuneful though, it's actually what really got me into the band.
One of my very favorite Scott Walker songs, one of his best IMO. Best enjoyed with a good drink around X-Mas time.
True, but that was a rather protracted leave of absence.
I'd read that after hearing the current band through the
trees at a state fair. Sounded great! Even though I'm not
a fan. But it's a real guitar feast.
It went on for awhile. but he showed up when he could. I saw one show during his leave, and on this night he was feeling well enough to join them through the set. Sounded real good too.
He saw someone else post that one time and thought it was cool. Someone else that doesn't know how forums work.
pop will eat itself
I think that's the first time I saw Klaus embrace his receding hairline.
I do really miss when RHCP were making balls-out rock like this:
They've had their moments since, but the early mojo they had in their first 8 years was really something. To be honest, they got this criticism in the By The Way era and they went some way to recapturing the sound on Stadium Arcadium, but it was an uneven album. A lot of the melodic pop stuff really got by on John's arranging, which made it apparent when Josh was in the band and they made very little impact. I hope since John's returned they rekindle their love of funky jams again.
Return to Forever
Acoustic, latin/Brazilian flavored jazz on "Light as a Feather" followed by the jazz fusion of "Hymn to the Seventh Galaxy."
