Just finished watching "Nowhere Boy," from "NetFlix." Really enjoyed it, too. So, I'm now listening to some Beatles and John Lennon's solo stuff. ;>)   CB

OK i tried this before but people only used it for a day...   I'm envisioning a long term thread that gets posted to daily when folks are browsing the forum and listening to tunes. The idea here is

I listened to a couple Insane Clown Posse songs. 

Curmudgeon Pterodactyl is not impressed. 

Did you think you would be?

I'm only familiar with the A-Ha version, and IMHO all it had going for it was a nice video.

Ok.

I like the tune, and am learning to play it irrespective of the video.

Björk - Post.  Some of it's good. Well, the single's okay. 

What bird dress does she have on today. I used to listen to her when she was in the Sugarcubes. Vespertine was not to bad.

No idea. The album came out in the 90s I think. If I remember correctly, she was rocking that slightly confused Eskimo look that the media latched onto. Which is fairly original, I'll give her that.

Stunningly, terrifyingly good, an absolute master musician.  The sound and vision are very slightly out of sync.

"A New York State of mind" by Billy Joel.

Got the music today and am learning to play it. Great song.

I thought you played guitar not the piano? Or do you tickle the ivory?

Billy up to 52nd Street was great stuff. Glass Houses (has some good stuff), but after that he bores me. I saw him in '86 about 3 weeks after I saw Elton John. Elton was great, Billy was just okay and played way to may songs of that fake Doo Wop album he made.

Chief,

No, I don't, and in fact, can't play the piano. Strictly a guitar guy, although now that one of our Grand-daughters is taking ukelele lessons (in addition to piano lessons) that I sponsor and sit in on, I'm learning a bit of it as well.

Sadly, I don't have the legs to wear a hula skirt.

But I digress. If I like a song, I'll get whatever music is available for it, as long as it shows chords, and learn to play it. Having to learn to play those really exotic and finger-spraining augmented, diminished and demolished chords has made me a better ( but still crappy) musician.  But I play only for my own enjoyment so that's ok.

And as far as artists and groups are concerned, with the exception of a handful, I'm a fan of  individual songs only, rather than the music of the persons who write/sing/play them. So I'll like a tune or two by whomever, and not bother or even listen to  anything else they've done. Odd, I guess, but that's just my musical taste.

Songs for me are when I (rarely) listen to the radio and can not control what is played. Usually when I am driving or at my house I listen to albums in their entirety.

Can't do that 'cause the CD player in my car needs repair.  And for some time now, don't drive far enough to have time enough to listen to albums in entirety,  but getting the CD fixed would help in getting to hear what I like more often.  As for the radio, well, if not for college and public stations(one public station here dividing it's time between classical and jazz) I'd only listen to a news station while driving anywhere.

The expressions on this advanced classical musicians face that missed the progressive rock era , hearing "Close to the Edge" for the first time, are really funny..

 

Maybe he should have tried listening to it sober.....?  [cool]

I wonder.... first;

Who IS this "advanced classical composer" and...

What has he ever composed?    and

How does it make him any authority on anything?
