Thanks for the link, @nyadrn!  I gave a listen & of course gotta love the guitar-playing - it instantly put me in a good mood. Smiley Happy

 

Hmmm, I didn't realize Ohio is the land of broken hearted sports.  As a Gator fan, I can't honestly say I'm broken hearted about yesterday's game - disgusted is more like it.  Smiley Frustrated 


 


Yup    Cleveland Indians   My dad and I attended zillions of games  last world series 1948  we came oh so close and then heartbreak

 

Cleveland Browns  ditto  last championship in the 60's  and dispite playing in 14 championship games since .. no winner   many heartbreaking losses.. the drive  the fumble  every Cleveland fan knows what those were   not to mention we lost our team when they moved to Baltimore and we had to get a new one..

 

The Cavaliers  great team in 76 The Miracle at Richfield beat the Washington Bullets at the buzzer and lost to the Celtics in the Eastern conference finals...    followed by distinction for a 26 game losing streak  longest losing streak by any major American professional sports team

but then ..........  VICTORY!!!   LeBron James and the CAVS won the championship this year!!  Good bye fumble drive etc.. hello winners.   The city shut down and over a million people threw a party downtown to celebrate. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aa6pd-Ic3bs

@nyadrn  Thanks for all the Ohio sports history - I hope I can manage to remember some of it!  How great that you & your dad attended all those Cleveland Indians games together - makes me happy just to think about that!  Smiley Very Happy

 

Song I'm listening to:  "Somewhere", from musical "West Side Story", performed by Anita Baker, on the Dave Koz CD, "At The Movies".

This evening, as I bleed orange and blue, I will gladly listen to any number of songs, but I don't want to hear "Rocky Top" or any song that mentions Tennessee!  And with our long streak of wins against Tennessee broken, I don't want to hear "The Streak" either!  Smiley Frustrated


I don't know what this is about (sports?), but it sounds like you want some quiet time. There is a perfect song for that, but it mentions Tennessee; how ironic. For the lack of knowing what this is about, I don't know what to recommend. But just in case you can overlook that this came from a "Tennessee boy", I'd still recommend "Noise" by Kenny Chesney. This "noise" might just give you the peace (& quiet) you're looking for; how double ironic.

Yes, I was referencing sports - I'm a University of Florida Gator & UF football team took a loss to Tennessee today.  UF colors are orange & blue.  UF had an 11 game streak of wins over Tennessee, but that's all history now.  I was mostly letting off steam when I made the post, as I had watched game & heard "Rocky Top" played loudly and relentlessly!

I thought Thomas Rhett did that song. Is this a different song, or am I wrong?

I was  reminded of a forgotten song from the 70's. After checking out the song "Little Red Riding Hood" by Amanda Seyfried, I started thinking about other unusual song/mood combonations. And I just have to suggest a song about a wistful longing for an elusive love that doesn't want to be  reluctantly abandoned. "Young Hearts Run Free" by Candi Staton.

I hate to say what I'm listening to. There's not enough space or time to give justice to them all. But one thing I would like to say is that identifying Donovan by the song "Mellow Yellow" is like identifying the Beatles by the song "Yellow Submarine". It's a mistake.

I love contemporary Christian music - David Crowder is my current favorite - but also listen to rock oldies some of the time.

At the moment, I am not listening to any music.  I'm watching the ballgame, but I will hear some music when the beer commercial comes on between innings.

Something's wrong here! If you're watching the game, then who made this post? You're not a closet music lover are you?

I don't know how anybody can like ALL of anything except "types". All types (genres) have good and bad. No type has all hits and no duds. I like Christian music too, but even that "type" has has sub-genres. There's also all the secular genres (rock, blues, country, etc.) within that "type". However I can't say that there's a gospel genre within the secular type. And if you can like ALL Christian music, then what's stopping you from like SOME secular music? And if you can like some secular music then why do you exclude it from what music you DO like? Is there something else that you're trying to say here? Is this really not about music at all, but rather something else?

Wow - Where to begin? For music in any form has been such a large part of my life and defines certain periods and moments in time. Music for me is like the sense of smell that opens up a carcophony of memories...

I'm part of the so called "Baby Boomer Generation" - and yes, we're of that age now (you know, the older ones who seemed oh so out of touch and strange). I feel blessed to have grown up in at a point in time where both technology and music evolved dramatically. I'm 58 years old and have been retired for two years, which gives me plenty of time to devote to my passion of music! 

My earlies recollection's are of listening and ENJOYING the music of the Beatles, specifically Sgt. Peppers. LA Woman by the Doors brings back memories from 1971 while living in Palo Alto. Elton Johns Yellow Brick Road. From Classical to Jazz, 80's New Wave, Adult Alt, Classic Rock...You could say that I have a wide spectrum of musical tastes.

 

So here's a short list, followed by what I'm listening to today on my Itunes Playlist - 6 Second Love by Whitney Woerz - my latest. 

 

Beautiful Friction - The Fixx

Los Angeles - Sugarcult

All Over The World - ELO

Kiss And Tell - Brian Ferry

Rain In The Sumertime -The Alarm

Spooky - ARS

Getting Away With It - Electronic

Let's Dance - David Bowie

If I Could - Seal

Soul Cages - Sting

Joshua Tree - U2

Walk On The Ocean - Toad The Wet Sprocket

Midnight City - M83

The Hurting - Tears For Fears

Crash Test Dummies

Fastball

Michael Franti

Taylor Swift

Stevie Ray Vaugn

Whitney Woerz

Thanks for taking the time to post your list and comments.  I agree that different music is part of different times of our lives.  Some of it stays and some comes and goes but none really ever goes away.  I still enjoy all of it!!

I'm  a baby-boomer too, And i don't recognize most of your list. Some artists but not the songs. As far as "Spooky" by the Atlanta Rhythm Section goes, Did you know that the Atlanta Rhythm Section used to be the Classics IV and they did a better version of Spooky as the Classics IV? Check it out. Maybe one of these days i'll check out those other songs on your list. I like Spooky too; Do you remember a band called Spooky Tooth? I don't remember what they did but I do remember the name. Have a nice one.

95% classical, 5% folk.  I inherited a vast collection of over 5000 LPs from someone who was an extreme musicologist.  (He wrote the program notes for many symphony orchestras for extra income.)  Nearly 500 of the records had never been played.  In fact, they are still sealed in the original cellophane sleeves.  The rest are in pristine condition having been played only once.  I'm gradually working my way through the whole collection, but it will be impossible for me to live long enough to ever listen to all of them.  I have no particular favorite; it would be like choosing a favorite child.  Many of the better known classics are duplicates.  For example, there are at least 14 different interpretations of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony by different conductors and orchestras.  I once spent a whole day trying to decide which one I liked best, and it's amazing how different they are from each other.

I know what you mean. But one thing I don't like about classical music is reflected by what one composer said: You need to insert a "wake-up" measure every once in awhile to keep the audience awake. These types of gimmicks tend to disrupt the flow of the music. One time you're straining to hear it, and the next you're getting your ears blown out. Some contemporary music does that too. I wish they'd stop it. The musical piece is not intended to be a test of the audio equipment. there are plenty of compositions that do it better; we don't need another one. But one classical piece that gets overlooked a lot and is underrated is "Bolero" by Ravel.
