From WAAAY back... How can you not like a song that's so upbeat???



How come he don't come and p.i.p. with me
Down at the meter no more?
How come he turn off the t.v.
And he hang that sign on the door?
We call and we call 'How come?' we say
What could make a boy behave this way?
He learn all of the lines, and every time he
don't stutter when he talk
And it's true! It's true! He sure is acquired a
cool and inspired sorta jazz when he walk
Where's his jacket and his old blue jeans?
If this ain't healthy is it some kinda clean?

I think Chuck E's in love

I don't believe what you're saying to me
This is something I gotta see Is he here?
Look in the poolhall Is he here?
Look in the drugstore Is he here?
No, he don't come here no more

I'll tell you what I saw him
He was sittin' us down at the Pantages
And whatever is that he got up his sleeve
I hope it isn't contagious
What's her name? Is that her there?
Christ, I think he's even combed his hair!
Is that her? What's her name?
Oh, it's never going to be same.
But that's not her
I know what's wrong--
Chuck E's in love with the little girl who's singing this song
Chuck E's in love with me

We first heard this while driving cross-country to California, and we were in Oklahoma, I believe. A pretty empty place in early spring. It just really hit me.

Gotta think about that. I realize how little free time vie had in that I haven't listened to anything in a couple of years. What I like now is not as much what I liked then, though some of it holds for me, a lot slips away.

I could post a whole 80s playlist here.

Hello,

Music is for moods, and I have many favorites.

This one was a childhood favorite for the season.

OMG, too funny! That's one Weird Al I hadn't heard! Old enough to remember the "duck and cover" and Cuban Missile Crisis too. Altho one pipsqueak in our 6th grade class had the brains to say: "Do you want to know why we curl up into a ball? It's to kiss our ass goodbye". And this was in Catholic school, mind you.

OH, BTW- I thought it was part of the video but then realized it was just unfortunate ad placement: During the beginning scenes of the plane dropping bombs, Northern Tool had a FREE DELIVERY banner at the bottom. Erk!

In a twisted dark humor sense, you might then appreciate this - you remember those bumper stickers some pizza companies put on their cars ?
Delivery in 30 minutes or your next ones free!
Our nuke-bomber folks for a while had a habit of sticking those to the aircraft - to the point where they recieved a rather snarky memo about it.


Not gonna dig up a buncha vids, but I will list a couple.

When the children cry: White Lion
Let's Go on: Tenpai Sato (Rhapsody Soundtrack)
Free will: Rush
Forever autumn: Justin Hayward
Broken wings: Mr Mister
The Gunners Dream: Pink Floyd
Kiss me: Sixpence none the richer
True Colors: Cyndi Lauper

These are favs for something best descibed as "heavy" guitar work.

Blow my fuse: Kix
Shove: L7
Very heavy fuel: Dire Straits
Hells Bells: Ac/Dc

BYTEMITE


Pink Floyd: Wish You Were Here, out of the self-same named album.

And a lot of The Wall, The Division Bell, and Dark Side of The Moon. It's kind of fun to wander around singing "When the Tigers Broke Free" at the top of your lungs.

I also like War Pigs, but not the Ozzy cover, that screwed with the original message.

Now and then I hear a song that catches my attention, and I bother to learn the name and lyrics, but I normally don't pay attention.

I hold a seething disdain for most modern music... Though I'm partial to some rap.

One of these songs is going directly on to my mp3 playlist. Totally Awesome. I'm going to post some, but i need to scan my playlist. I pretty much haven't listened to anything in two years or so outside of the car stereo, etc. When I switched to Linux, which I did because I was sick to death of spending endless hours debugging OS glitches, killing spyware, and just getting very very angry at bill gates, I never found a good mp3 player. I have tinnitus which makes treble pitches difficult for me, and so I like to have a good equalizer that let's me adjust each pitch range independently.

Anyway, last spring I started on the iPad, and summer the Mac, and now I've been using the Galaxy, I really need to move all my files.

Anyway, one of these songs is already on my playlist. As I listen to these I realize how much my own listening habits have changed over the years.

If anyones wondering why I'm typing this instead of posting songs its because i had to hall out the old windows dino and charge the battery because it has my mp3s on it, and I didn't want to just select the first thing that came to mind.

"We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false." -- William Casey, Reagan's presidential campaign manager & CIA Director (from first staff meeting in 1981)


Conor Oberst - "Cape Canaveral"



This one takes me right back to my childhood, growing up, moving all over the country, that sense of wide-open America, the nostalgia, the hope, the sadness... It's really very poetic the way it's written, full of just "word-pictures", little flashes that bring to mind strong memories and feelings.

Roger Waters - "The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking" (Eric Clapton on guitar)



Love the entire album, Waters's first after leaving Pink Floyd. Some of Clapton's best guitar work was on this album, too.

Joy Division - "Atmosphere"



The name says it all. For me, this was where the post-punk movement began. It's dark, it's stark, it's desolate, but in the right car with the right system, those atmospheric keyboard fades will send shivers up the back of your neck...

And speaking of punk,

John Cooper Clark - "Evidently Chickentown"



It helps if you realize that he wrote it with the word "fuck" instead of "bloody". And it flows much better and sounds much better with "fuck". "Stuck in bloody Chickentown" just doesn't have the same beat rhythm as "Stuck in fuckin' Chickentown". But the record company evidently insisted...

The Decemberists - "The Crane Wife"



Just such a beautiful way to put a fairy tale into song. So touching, so poignant.



This Space For Rent!

Some other's I really like. I'm afraid I can't tell you why, I prefer to choose my favorites more instinctually. I try not to over analyze music I enjoy, because analyzing music as a Music Major almost ruined music for me. Anyway more faves.



these next three are the 3 movements of Richard Strauss's Horn Concerto No. 1 I performed as part of my Senior Recital. Barry Tuckwell is the performer in these recordings, he's a little better at it than I am, haha.





Also, he's playing a Holton Farkas, same model of Horn I play!

This one makes me smile and giggle a little bit. I'd love to perform this with a group someday, I imagine I'd come out of every rehearsal and performance winded!



stepping away from classical, this is my favorite Billy Joel song



And I'll end this post with

The Dust in the Wind made me think of this David Wilcox song called Spirit Wind, because I remember him once saying that it wasn't the Dust that was important. I can't find a video for Spirit Wind, but you can listen to it here if anyone wants to: http://davidwilcox.com/index.php?page=songs&category=Underneath&displa

He has some wonderful songs. Not all of them are brilliant, but many of them are absolute poetry.

This one was easier to find a video of, for some reason:




Rose, I really dig that James Marsters song. I know you've mentioned his music before, but I'd never heard any of it.
And that Noel Fielding... that is a pretty man. I don't say that often. Super catchy song, too. Made me laugh.


Couple others:






Watchman trailer actually got me hooked on this one...



And finally, some Dr. Horrible goodness!
