So this is why my poor little netbook froze up. I had to forbid youtube to load page 1 of the thread.

The best music is without words... usually. Piano music I find to be the most consistant. As far as music with words are concerned, I've noticed that Alice in Chains was missing from this list.

I have quite an eclectic musical collection, although nowadays my tastes tend mostly to the classical. However I still regard the classic rock of the late sixties and early seventies with deep affection because of the memories it invokes. In those days of course music was made by musicians rather than by sound engineers with clever software.

Right at the top of my list of maestros is Leonard Cohen, the muso's muso. IMO the purest sound ever to emerge from a human larynx is the voice of the late Eva Cassidy, although Joni Mitchell can still do it for me as well. Perhaps I'm showing my age, but when my kids alert me to something new I still listen to it with appreciation and interest. In this regard I differ from most of my contemporaries in that I reckon there is still plenty of good music being made if you know where to find it.

I have on CD "Sonny Side Up" with Sonny Stitt, Sonny Rollins and Dizzie Gillespie. Not to mention some killer rhythm. The improv work on this album is amazing. The group exhibits sounds uncharacteristic to them but the content is killer.

Luna- Zoe (Beautiful song in Spanish)
Tickle Toe - The Count Basie Orchestra (Great groove big band tune)
Blue Train - John Coltrane (True work of art)
Strength Through Music - Amanda Palmer (Beautiful song about the danger in being an icon and influencing children and adolescents.
Pilgrimage - Michael Brecker (Last recorded song by Brecker before his untimely death, beautiful beautiful beautiful)
Home By the Sea - Genesis (My friend listens to this to remember his mom, dead now, adds emotional context to this great song for me)
Rococo - Arcade Fire (Huge sound, great strings)
Save My Soul - Big Bad Voodoo Daddy (Great song about the pioneers of black culture and jazz and about the disadvantage of falling in love with a dead genre and a city of jazz)


I would really encourage anyone to listen to these. Not that my taste is supreme :D just that I think these are treasures that anyone can enjoy.

I've found I've gone away from the idea of having a "collection" of music. I've worn out my ears on what material things I "have": CDs, mp3s, downloadable albums, etc. I'm enjoying much more the dynamic model of having different music streamed on demand: Pandora. I love how you can create a custom station of a particular style or artist, and then it picks similar tracks for you to approve or disapprove upon first listen. Eventually, you get highly tailored "music stations" which you can call up as a backdrop to whatever mood or routine you're in.

Classical/Spanish acoustic guitar station (Andre Segovia, baroque lute pieces, flamenco)
Heavy Metal (Disturbed, Avenged Sevenfold)
smooth acid jazz type (Jamiroquai, Stevie Wonder, Omar)
industrial (NIN, Zombie, Front Line Assembly)
movie soundtracks (Star Trek and Star Wars themes, John Williams, Danny Elfman, others)
trombone-favored old jazz and patriotic music (from Sousa to Glenn Miller)
modern crooners (Adele, The Fray, Plain White Ts)
classical solo piano pieces (Debussy, Beethoven, Chopin)
classic 80's
funky IDM-type (The Prodigy, Qemist, Chemical Brothers, Fat Boy Slim)
mellow experimental ambient (Shpongle, Juno Reactor, modern Goa, Matrix soundtrack)

Of course, sometimes the mood requires specific songs/albums from yesteryear: RHCP, 311, Rush, 3eb, Sublime, STP, Journey, Def Leppard...


Good stuff

My cd collection hasn't changed since getting DSL ~15 years ago. ;)

My mp3 collection on the other hand changes frequently. Among it are classical and opera pieces I first heard from some movie and liking the movie link the music and movie together (Star Trek, Sum of All Fears, etc.) Lots of 80s music like Depeche Mode, and modern trance music like Tiesto, Tomcraft, Paul van Dyk, n others. As well as the occaisonal hard rock n heavy metal pieces having grown up with a younger brother into that and on rare occaisonal hearing something that didn't suck as much as the rest :)

I absolutely love this song,



on so many levels!<

It's very hard to hit the spot commercially these days, and very easy to be forgotten.

This one deserves a replay among the chaos, I think.

Lyrics:

"Free"
(Rudimental and Emeli Sandé)

I don’t do yoga, never tried Pilates
Not many people want me at their parties
Tryna find my place, some place,
oh I, oh I, oh I

I drink a little more than recommended
This world ain’t exactly what my heart expected
Tryna find my way someway,
oh I, oh I, oh I

Chorus:

See': ohhaohoo, c’est la vie
n' maybe something’s wrong with me
But, ohhhaahh-home at least I am free, ooo-oooahhh, I am free

If you ask the church, then you're no believer
Spend Sundays asleep I'm just another dreamer
Still tryna find my home sweet home,
oh I, oh I, oh I

I guess I ain’t too good for money neither
I got two left feet, no, I'm no Jackson either
Just tryna find my way someway, oh I, oh I, oh I

[Chorus:]
See- ohhhaooh, c’est la vie
Maybe something’s wrong with me
But, whoa, at least I am free, oh, oh, I am free
Yeah, whoa, c’est la vie
Maybe something’s wrong with me
But, whoa, at least I am free, oh, oh, I am free

Just tryna find my home sweet home, sweet home, sweet home, sweet home,
I drink a little more than recommended
This ain’t exactly what my heart expected

[Chorus:]
Whoa, c’est la vie
Maybe something’s wrong with me
But whoa, at least I am free, oh, oh, I am free
Yeah, whoa, c’est la vie
Maybe something’s wrong with me
But, whoa, at least I am free, oh, oh, I am free.

Whoa, c’est la vie
Maybe something’s wrong with me
Whoa, at least I am free, oh, oh, I am free
Whoa, c’est la vie
Maybe something’s wrong with me
Whoa, at least I am free, oh, oh, I am free.

"We have some deep and pressing problems [...] ...?"

-David Cameron

lol

But in all honestly, this is real UK 'rap'*, some might be interested.

(*It's what the young ones on the "street" are listening to anyway, in London -- i feel so dumb saying that, but I dunno how else to categorize it for readers here [ categorization doesn't really explain the (rather the opposite) phenomenon,,,, funnier still is I'm a part of it, yet I talk like an observer. ) .. "Melting pot" lol...

I think it's worth a few reloads.; the lyrics have a point: e.g. when combined with the visuals, such as RedBull vs. cocaine.

Fuxk the government, do what you want, who's in charge is bullsxit, be real, don't front, be honest, fuxk subtlety, help others, make money, and find a good wife. These are the values I see propelled at the moment here.

Anyway; Listen.

Yeah, good footage there, and the wing suit stuff is mad, can't even imagine how good it would feel. Some of the most daring stuff I've seen. Hope I don't get a chance to try it :p

This one reminds me of back in the days,

Literally made me tear up...

I love the way it was combined with that footage, it's genuinely beautiful.
