What Are You Listening To?

4,710 posts in this topic

Just a simple question really. What are you all listening to at the mo'? As for me, Elbow, U2, Sigur Ros, and Florence & the machine are all on heavy rotation. Oh and as an aside, what have you got that you hardly ever listen to? I've got a Motorhead album that's not been played through in at least 5 years. Over to you....

A lot of 70s/80s punk (Crass, Vice Squad, Jam, Damned etc etc) mixed in with some classical (Liszt Preludes & Wagner) and a bit of Butthole Surfers thrown in for good measure.

Since I'm image-editing this afternoon I may go more mellow with Christian Death's classic Catastrophe Ballet.

As for the second part of your question - many of the goff bands I liked as a pale and callow yoof produced one or two good albums and others that never quite matched up - they're still in my collection but rarely, if ever, hit the deck.

I also have the 7" of Genesis' That's All :o which I bought before realising I hated Phil Collins - can't even sell it on ebay now. :(:lol:

Listening to Rock Radio at the moment. Rather good. Other than that it has to be U2, spotify is good for free music, you can make a playlist and listen all day and night. Caruthers you have great taste in music. xktx

How very kind of you to say. Did you manage to get out to see them on the 360 tour?

Melmoth, love the Jam, and some of Mr Wellers earlier stuff.

I'm on the way to connect some dots, and stopped in Newnam, Georgia for lunch.

It's ironic, but I had to exit Alan Jackson Highway to get to Newnan, Alan's hometown. When I opened my laptop I also clicked on Jack's recording of Jackson's "Small Town Southern Man". My server at the Cracker Barell delivered my contry ham, turnip greens, and mashed potatoes. She then courtseyed to Alan Jackson's music.

"He lived the ways of kindness; Bowed his head to Jesus, Stood for Uncle Sam, He loved only one woman; and was proud of what he had. He's a small town Southern man".

at moment listening to Goldfrapp's new album 'Head First' - sounds like 1980's disco/dance floor derivatives but fresh at the same time.

That's a huge collection, Punk-sparkle. B) My older sister's never threw away old records, and I think they still have some original `Fats Domino` and `The Five Keys` 45 rpms, from the 1950's and early 1960's. They've offered to give me their old 50's & 60's collections. As if I need more weight in my attic.

I've noticed, over the last few years, that whenever I drive, anywhere, I'm usually listening to the 'Pop Hits by Decade' commercial-free channels of: '40's on 4' & '50's on 5', which are fantastic, or the Hip-Hop R&B channels, which include: 'Soul Town' on my vehicles SatNav SiriusXM radio.

I am most envious Jack. I am afraid most of mine are CDs and downloads - much easier to amass high numbers of songs. I did download about 300 songs off facebook. Someone had interviewed Poison Ivy and Lux Interior (RIP) from The Cramps regards their fave tunes, then succeeded in finding all these wonderful 50's tunes and sharing them free of charge.

'Free of charge' is always nice. B)

Oh, I wouldn't be too envious of them, PS. :lol: I dug through a few boxes of them last summer, and after several years of the boxes being accidentally stored in an attic above an `uninsulated` detached garage... where moist air was present more than half the year... the boxes smelt musty and several of the 45's & large album records were warped. :(

There are some original Beatles; Beach Boys; Jan & Dean; Dave Clark Five; Elvis; Steppenwolf; Credence Clearwater Revival; Janis Joplin; Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young; Chicago; The Monkeys; The Young Rascals; Buffalo Springfield; Bob Dylan; James Taylor and Joan Baez - etc., however.

If everyone tried listening to rockabilly at least once, the world would be a happier place!

I guess you might be able to pay on the door if you are in the mood!!!

Take it from me, and I'll publicly say for all to see, that they'll put you in a great mood and if they don't I'll cover the cost of your tickets!!!

Perhaps though the big question is what are we still doing up at this time???

Me, I'm watching Tennessee v Ohio State in the NCAA Sweet Sixteen and it's a doozy although I'm cream crackered!!!

And before anybody says I'm hijacking this thread I'm not only watching it I'm listening to it too!!!

I am afraid I was up with the spaniel ladies Rosy and Blossom, we all wanted a drink of water as we were previously watching 'High Society' and drinking wine. The dogs are allowed a treat on Friday night, in fact their whole life is a treat!
