Music - What's on your playlist?

Karen_CMKaren_CM Posts: 5,030
My music tastes run the gamut from Rossini to rock and roll. About the only thing I don't care for is rap and country. And sorry, but broadway musicals are my absolute favorite.

    If I was going to be stuck on a desert island, and could only have the catalog from one artist or group, it would be Beatles for me.

    I'm with you on rap. Sort of found it interesting at first, WAY back in the day, but it definitely lost me quickly.

    This morning I'm on a Peru Folk Radio kick and Mountain Apple from Maui is bookmarked, and the Sky.fm classical and flamenco guitar channel is often good (all via shoutcast.com).

    Sometimes I'll flip to AOL radio (some XM channels are free there) and the rest of the time (on in the car) my terrestrial radio is on the local Journal Broadcast Group affiliate for top 40.

    Being a bit younger I enjoy more POP and Hip Hop but I do love rock and alternative too. I recently played Guitar Hero 2 for PS2 and it took me back a few years, I had to go download some Smashing Pumpkins and Nirvana!

    ...who can play instruments, so I've been really hooked on the Brian Setzer Orchestra, plus the entire 10 CD set of "Autumn Thunder", the NFL Films highlight music package. Nothing like a good blast of brass and a stand-up bass!

    I enjoy the Brian Setzer Orchestra as well. And don't forget the Squirrel Nut Zippers! :shades:

    You may as well cut me open and count the rings.....

    I've got more stuff on my iPod than I'll ever hear in my lifetime. A lot of 60s forward (and some older) stuff. Rock, country, folkie stuff. The whole Beatles catalog.

    Of course if there's a Mets game on I'm listening to that instead and do catch NPR back and forth to work.

    Now that I have a van I'm pretty sure I'll hold onto for a few years I'll get teh XM antenna up on that. Lots of good things there. I think I'll also do an upgrade on the speakers and be nice to myself.

    Always liked him, and the new song "Gravity" has a very calming effect on me. Put it on when you're stressed out, and you'll feel better. :shades:

    Hey, pretty good list!! But, ahem, you're showing your age with some of 'em...

    (Of course there's only one way I would know that. :blush: )
  • Karen_CMKaren_CM Posts: 5,030
    It just so happens that I was helping with my daughter's high school play that was set in the 50's. She and I spent several hours collecting oldies music for pre-show and intermission. Soooo, that's how I got into the early rock-n-roll music again.

    Oops, did I say again? :blush:

    My 14 year old has discovered vintage Weird Al :P

    She wants to be SURE that I've heard "I lost on Jeopardy!"

    I pick songs that the kids also like, so I have Dragostea Din Tei on my play list, too.

    I think that song was on the Chicken Little soundtrack. But wasn't it made famous earlier by some web video that circulated?

    Kids Love that song by Crazy Frog, too. That one that is a remix of Axle F from Beverly Hills Cop.
  • Karen_CMKaren_CM Posts: 5,030
    Yes, there was a video circulating of a young guy lip-syncing the song. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Numa_Numa

    There's a Wiki for everything these days! :surprise:

    That was it, thanks. I only remember the original video faintly.

    Funny how the pop legend becomes greater than the thing itself.

    Okay... most of these are my son's stuff.. since he has an iPod, and I don't.. but, I'm taking credit..

    Pink Floyd (Wish you were here) forgot how great this album is/was.

    Roy Buchanan (unreal guitar playing.. pretty crappy blues performer.. I remembered the singing as being better)

    Allison Krauss (okay.. all mine.. the kid hates Bluegrass)

    Peter Frampton (local resident.. We saw him at the BMW dealer.. so, I turned the kid onto his stuff... great instrumental guitar.. sorry for the car reference..lol)

    The Who: Live at Leeds (he found this on his own at iTunes... My Generation is my all-time favorite song.. and the live version is great)

    that's all for now.. ;)

    Frampton's version of "Oh Baby I Love Your Way" is one of the best songs ever.
  • PF_FlyerPF_Flyer Pennsylvania Furnace, PAPosts: 5,967
    If you're any kind of Beatles fan at all and haven't listened to the Love CD yet, go get a copy. A collaboration of Cirque du Soleil and the Beatles, masterminded by George Martin and his son Giles.

    Listening as I type... Sun King played backwards as a seamless lead-in to Something. Being For The Benefit of Mr. Kite transitioning to I Want You (She's So Heavy) sprinkled with Helter Skelter

    It's amazing how much of the music fits together. All original tracks shuffled around and stirred together into something pretty special. Stirs a lot of emotions in me since I've been listening to this stuff ever since the Beatles hit the charts and I'm intimately familiar with the music.

    George Martin IS a genius :shades:

    I fully agree with you. George Martin & Son have reinvented the Beatles, together with the Cirque du Soleil! Precious. What do you think about this mixing of Strawberry Fields For Ever?

    Jose
  • PF_FlyerPF_Flyer Pennsylvania Furnace, PAPosts: 5,967
    I think the mixing onjust about everything is incredible. If you listen carefully, there are an awful lot of bits of music thrown in here and therethat just fit each other like a glove. Tonight in the car my 14 year old asked if the Beatles had planned this on purpose. :shades:

    Another good example of the George Martin mastership is The Beatles' "Let It Be… Naked" released in 2003. That is, Let It Be as it was originally recorded by The Beatles and produced by George Martin back in 1969. Before Phil Spector handled the tapes for worst.

    (Your commentary on Love prompted me to rehear some Beatles' music. I have had again a nice good time! :D )

    My 14 year old is captivated by Love and has put it on her ipod. Listening to it in the car, she's identifying all the different pieces that are part of the mix. :)

    That is a good task for connoisseurs.

    So, The Beatles have captivated yet another generation. Reading your post I was remembering my daughter (now 28) when she was about the same age than yours and said that The Beatles was the best group ever (even better than Blur and Oasis, the most in Europe at that time).

    Now I am listening to Ella Fitzgerald: A-Tisket A-Tasket, Stone Cold Dead In The Market, Five-O'Clock Whistle and other olds. Are my Ella favourites.

    Jose
  • PF_FlyerPF_Flyer Pennsylvania Furnace, PAPosts: 5,967
    Yep, my kids sort of grew up on the Beatles and other assorted good music. :P

    They've both gone through their phases (Back Street Boys and other "popular" stuff) but they generally have tastes in music that I don't object to.

    While listening to LOVE in the car yesterday, I noticed the 14 year old really getting into I Am The Walrus and it struck me that I was almost the exact same age when it had originally been released... and I had about the same reaction as she's having now...LOL

    She also had a "wow" reaction when I told her that the Beatles must be pretty influential since she's interested in music from a group that broke up 22 years before she was born!

    What happened here?

    She was all rebel rocker, singer-song writer.

    Her new song is pure bubble gum pop. The sound is everything she used to stand against.

    Did she sell out, or what?

    I couldn't believe it when they said it was Avril singing that song. Sounds like something cheerleaders would do a routine to. :confuse:
  • PF_FlyerPF_Flyer Pennsylvania Furnace, PAPosts: 5,967
    Hmm... maybe she's paying attention and seeing that there are commercials using Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, etc.

    Sometimes it's hard to imagine using something like Nirvana's Teen Spirit to being back a nostalgic feeling to sell a product :surprise:

    Well, up to now it's only been seeing radio air play. Haven't seen it in any ads.

    I guess I'm just surprised. She was very successful with her previous album, so why sell out? She didn't have to.
  • PF_FlyerPF_Flyer Pennsylvania Furnace, PAPosts: 5,967
    I was thinking in terms of future use in ads. Music generally turn into "elevator music" during its initial run... except for Barry Manilow :P

    "Lagrimas negras"
    by El Cigala (vocals), Bebo Valdez (piano), Paquito D'Rivera (saxo) & Javier Colina (bass)

    …would be appreciated, if you fancy to hear it.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FdSjI1gQJmU.

    This is a bolero/flamenco/jazz album. I am very eclectic on the music I like :shades:

    Jose
  • ateixeiraateixeira Posts: 72,587
    Vocal style reminds me a lot of the Gypsy Kings.

    Even the music has that sad mood, like "Un Amor" from their Best of album.

    My wife would probably love that song. :shades:
