Hi!
This is my very first post.
I was wondering what kind of music babblers listen to.
Moi, j'aime Bjork!

よろしく

I don't know if I can desribe what music I'm in to. I'll try anyways. Basically, In terms of time, I'm in to stuff from 1900-2002 and even then some from the 1700's-1800's. In terms of WHAT I listen to. Well, anything that sounds good. I could be listening to Van Morrison's T.B. Sheets (What I'm listening to now) and the next song I'd be listening to is "The Merry-go-round broke down" a cartoon song from the 30's-40's. I would then listen to say.... NWA, then Hank Williams sr., then 99 Luft Balloons...... and so on. You have no idea how much I've been called a freak because of what I listen to.

Tosca as in the opera? The choir I'm in performed the music from Tosca in its entirety (without the acting), and it was absolutely marvelous.

No. I was listening to Suzuki.
Tosca is a couple of guys from Vienna,
who make great downtempo music.

I thought it was Puccini...

There are two kinds of music, as Duke Ellinton said, good and bad. I prefer the former, in whatever configuration of notes.

In the last week or so I've listened to The Andrews Sisters, G&S's Iolanthe, Ray Price, The Stanley Brothers, various compilations of music (jazz mostly) from the 20s 30s and 40s, Wesley Willis, BTO, Elvis, Schubert Piano Trios, Dread Zeppelin, "The Sorority Girls Slumber Party Massacre," Don Redman Orch., Will Bradley Orch., Teddy Wilson Orch....

Damn you, Arch. The funk I've been listening to just ain't cutting it now. I've got a cravin' to listen to something older and unique and magical.

And I know just the thing: but now I've got to dig out my "Oh, That Cello" on 12" vinyl. It's a selection of the music Charlie Chaplin wrote to accompany his silent films.

I set my turntable back up a couple of months ago. Had it packed away for 6 or 7 years while the kids were toddlers. It's been a gas re-acquainting myself with the old collection.

wow I guess I am just normal!! I listen to Led Zeppelin, you know? the best band ever! I am also big time into house music, as well as the new metal scene. While I am at it I am a singer in a band and we play 70's all the way to modern music. I listen to a wide variety, music is kinda my thing but I dont' listen to all that crazy shit you guys are talking about.

Classical, opera and 99.9% of country suck large. I like stuff that is really catch has a nice melody or takes you on a nice trip. Really grovy or powerful stuff is nice to listen to, much like most of led zeppelin!!!

By the way Robert Plants birthday is approaching!! Its in August, we should all celebrate it!!!!

Last time I went on a thread like this and said I liked classical, I was rather dismissively shooed out of the room.

I'm hoping for not such a low-brow crowd this time. Pretty much any classical era from it's 13th century roots in Provence to late 19th century. The 20th century 12 tone stuff doesn't do it for me. The 20th century belongs to Jazz and the Blues and all the wonderful stuff that grew out of that.

I like everything from Giovanni Gabrielli to Lou Reed and the Velvet Underground.

Bill Monroe, Ralph Stanley, David Grisman, Sam Bush, Ricky Skaggs, the Osborne Brothers: these and many other bluegrass artists. These guys can make music. And so can the women of bluegrass: Hazel Dickens, Rhonda Vincent, Dolly Parton. Understand that these are Musicians, not twinkies. And yes, many of these can do good classical music and good jazz.

Old Goat and minimal....IN THERE!

Bill Munroe's "Tenbrooks and Molly" rules!

Oldgoat, what sorts of classical do you like? I'm currently into Schubert and Brahms chamber works.

I like Led Zeppelin too, but I can't abide most Zep fans.

Well, there's not too much I don't like. Depends on my mood and the time of day I guess. With Schubert, I like his piano stuff like Krieslariana (sp?).. with Brahms, the big magnificent romantic symphonies.

I like the mid-18th century Englishmen, who were largely eclipsed by Handel. Guys like William Boyce and Jeremiah Clarke. (not to take away from Handel)

For performers, my hero is Glen Gould. I think he's the best piano player of the 20'th century.

I'm not that much into opera myself, but I grew up around it and have a bit of a sense of voice. Operatic voice of the century was, IMO Jussi Beorling.

If you really want to relax with music, listen to 15th - early 16th century liturgical composers like Josquin Duprey, Olbrecht and Charpentier.

If you've never heard it, and can find it, you would probably enjoy the live album by Stephane Grappelli and David Grisman - especially Tiger Rag.

I listen to a lot of Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Van Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, the Beatles, the Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, and other artists from the 1960's. But i'm not entirely trapped in the sixties musically. I love Led Zeppelin, Bob Marley, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Blind Melon, and I'm starting to listen to Dave Matthews all the time. It would be an understatement to say that I am repulsed by the popular music of today.

I completed my VU collection -- at least, the Original Four -- last week week with the purchase of (gulp) White Light White Heat. (I'd listened to it before, but never owned it).

Of thunderous rock 'n' roll albums, it's possibly the bleakest ever recorded.

On a lighter note, Guided by Voices are among my favourites.

I listen to almost everything, except country and top 40.
I've been listening to alot of Erykah Badu lately, Chemical Brothers,Sinead O'Connor, Jamiroquai. I've always listened to alot of hiphop (Del the funky homosapien, A Tribe Called Quest, Common, etc) but just recently discovered The Coup who are really really good and have alot of excellent messages. Check out the song '5 million ways to kill a CEO'. I looove jungle/drum 'n' bass like DJ Zinc, Dillinja, Congo Natty, DJ Hype, etc. I love reggae, soul/funk/r&b, alot of classic rock like Hendrix, Led Zeppelin,etc. I have such a wide variety of musical taste that it confuses most people I come into contact with. Yes I know, I just dont meet the right people. I remember being called a "poser" in grade 7 because I told someone I liked listening to New Kids on the Block, Skid Row and LL Cool J or someone like that. I still like NKOTB

Listening this morning to "Do The Collapse," I finally realized that one of the things I like best about them is their vocal harmonies. That's important, especially in a band that can really crunch bone.

Spring Chicken, re your ranking of Jussi Bjoerling, Classic FM magazine agrees with you:

quote:
1. Jussi Björling (1911-1960)

Of the 83 recordings of the famous 'Au fond du temple sacré' duet from Bizet's The Pearl Fishers currently on sale, one version, pressed by RCA more than a half a century ago, beats all-comers. The stirring affirmation of friendship as sung by Swedish tenor Jussi Björling with American baritone Robert Merrill has never been bettered. So what separates Björling from the others: Of course, the quality of his voice, for one thing: a beautifully produced lyric tone with a fast, narrow vibrato and distinctive, instantly recognizable, silvery edge. There's a fresh, spontaneous, radiant quality tinged with a melancholic yearning that is highly affecting. But it's more than that. Björling sings with ecstasy, constantly driving the accompaniment along, anticipating phrases and never indulgent. It's that life-affirming exultancy which sends a shiver down the spine and, 40 years after his death, is still able to reduce you to tears.


For sure.

The fact that he never sung a note sober probably didn't hurt either.

Now, that is news to me ... Ah, well -- there are worse lives, eh?

We have that old record. One Friday afternoon this summer ...

On Tuesday night Fang and I pulled out all the old Corries LPs (Corries = Scottish folk revival of the 60s-80s) and sang along for hours. A luminous evening; Wednesday, though, bad hangover.

I've just bought Captain Beefheart's Trout Mask Replica, which I'd only ever heard fragments of before.

Tom Waits can deny it if he wants, but no TMR, no Tom Waits -- at least, not as we know him.

For the kids -- Connie Kaldor's "Lullabye Berceuse". Especially at bedtime.

For me -- Mary Chapin Carpenter, Stan Rogers, Tori Amos, Blue Rodeo (could listen to Jim Cuddy all day, I could), Billy Bragg, Jann Arden, Prince (saw him live a few weeks ago -- Fantastic show!), Jennifer Warnes, Elvis Costello, Bob Marley, Annie Lennox, Patsy Cline.... I could go on a lot longer, but I think that's sufficient for now.

I listen to just about any style, as long as it's well-performed...

Okay, you know when you meet someone, say at a party, the conversation will more often than not lead to the question "So, what do you listen to?" And, just as often, the reply will be "Oh, I listen to everything."
Now, if you're like me, and for your sake I hope you are not, your response would be to do one of three things:

A) Throw your drink in their face and dump a bowl of Cheetos on their head.

B) Bury face in hands and weep silently until the person backs away slowly.

C) Explode into the folowing tirade:
"Whaddaya mean you like everything?! That's total bulls--t! Are you listening to any Burmese folk music? How about Cannibal Corpse? No? What about Sharon, Lois and Bram? DJ Assault? Flatt and Scruggs? The Vienna Boy's Choir singing Elton John's "Rocket Man"? If you answered no to any of those questions YOU DON'T LIKE EVERYTHING!"

I like to consider myself "with it." I dig a lot of what the kids are listening to these days and fancy that I know a thing or two about the rock and the roll. But as big a music completist as I aspire to be, even I can't stand death metal (grindcore, etc. etc.), I think Sum 41 and Nickleback are convincing arguments that Canadian music hit it's peak with Bryan Adams' "Cuts Like a Knife" in 1983 (or whenever), and as for electronic, I'm not sure I trust any genre of music that requires you to be hopped up on goofballs to enjoy (ditto Led Zep and Pink Floyd. Sorry, kids.) So I couldn't possibly say I like everything. And neither could, or more importantly, should, you.
So, to all you music lovers out there, if someone asks you what kinda stuff you're digging on these days, just give some examples. Because if you fall back on "Everything!", you're gonna end up wearing my Cheetos, dude.

Rant completed, I give you "What's on BD's CD queue."
1. Belle and Sebastian
2. Stephen Malkmus
3. Two Minute Miracles
4. The Gossip
5. The Glands
6. Wilco
7. Yo La Tengo
8. The Promise Ring
9. Weakerthans
10. Velvet Underground
Feel free to judge me.

Okay, black_dog, I'm hoping that little rant wasn't aimed at me....

But on the assumption it is, I'd like to start by clarifying that said I like MOST STYLES. That does not mean EVERYTHING, nor does it imply that I have more knowledge than I do.

Then again, I don't consider myself to be even remotely "hip". I just don't have the time for that kind of posing.

Next, in the days when young men at parties would ask me "So what do you listen to?", I generally responded with "You'll have to come up with something more clever than that if you want this conversation to continue..." You'd be wearing the cheetos, li'l fella, if only figuratively.

Hmmm. I can't say I've ever used "What do you listen to?" as a pick up line. Most wannabe music snobs I know (myself included) are too busy, ya know, listening to songs about girls to bother actually talking to them.

Naw, that rant wasn't aimed at anybody in particular. It's just been a pet peeve of mine for a while and this seemd lke agood chance to get it off my chest.

I'm a "kid?" Hey, thanks! I don't now if that's a compliment, but I choose to take it as such. By the way, Zoots, what makes you say that?

Say, HERE'S something for the whole family to enjoy!

Music I Must Be Buried By: First, Faure's Requiem, sung by Barbara Hendricks. Faure is to be immediately followed by the Rolling Stones' Jump On Top Of Me, from Robert Altman's "Pret A Porter" soundtrack, which would allow time for various old flames to throw themselves upon my casket. Once they've all clambered out of the hole and dusted themselves off, Louis Armstrong must be played at full volume, particularly Short But So Sweet and Pretty Little Missy. Everyone will be in terrific spirits as they swing, or perhaps dodder, out of the cemetary, encouraging my own departing spirit to follow suit.

If yer ever in the mood to jump a boxcar and flick a middle finger at the world, put on American Recordings by Johnny Cash. If that doesn't do it, try At Folsom Prison from 1968. Damn, that's music from the gut.

If you've never thrown a stubby at a road sign while hanging out the ass-end of a half-ton, with yer drunken fate in the hands of the gods of gophers and the other blessed road-meat, with the deathwish knell of Foghataprilwinethesweet calling you to the other side...well then, ya've got nothin' ta tell me!

That Yo-Yo Ma certainly can kick out the jams, wouldn't you say?

uh, i just said that i like those bands, that's all... i guess it was just to help give people an idea of what i mean by punk... cos often when i say that, people think sex pistols...

anyways, i like lotsa music... mostly i listen to punk, electronic, and mellow jazz (i don't know if they have a proper name for it, i just like it)... i also like summa that stuff they call industrial... you know, wierd noises and slow guitars and basses put together in a creepy, yet totally relaxing kinda way... i like classical too...

i can tell i'm tired, i can't just say what i mean in less than a full-blown ramble... g'night all

Almost cut my hair
It happened just the other day
It was getting kinda long
I could'a said it was in my way
But I didn't and I wonder why
I feel like letting my freak flag fly...

Deja vu, Slim...

Wizkid, tell me about the music that inspires your generation. I haven't got a clue. Usually, as the political heat increases, the music does, too. Maybe we're in for some good tunes.

Saw the people standing
thousand years in chains
Somebody said it's different now
Look it's just the same.
Pharoahs spin the message
Round and round it goes...

alot of what i listen to hasn't exactly inspired my generation... most kids i know have never listened to songs other than what has been/is played on the top 40... most of my stuff has political lyrics; that scares the vast majority of teeny-boppers away... i guess the best way to illustrate this is to quote from an LP that I just bought from a distro ...

"this war starts at home, in everything i do
why should i feel bad for not supporting the corporate few
i gotta sort this shit out
but it's a constant battle
to unlog my commercialized mind and quit their fucking game.
I quit their fucking game"

that was written by The Attack, a band from Vancouver, that I find to be very uh, inspirational... they speak at shows, and they get totally into whatever show they are playing. in the jacket of the LP, they basically said that they can't really provide answers to the world's problems, they can only ask questions, and get people to think about their own answers.

Most kids in the hardcore 'scene' that i know find straight-forward lyrics much more real-life insprirational than metaphorical stuff ... i guess because the simpler the words, the clearer the message. Anyhow, as the "political heat" increases, the music in general gets angrier, and it's a shame... the people who want us to buy ourselves happiness try to make us angry, and if we let them, they win. the only way to beat them is to work for change and be happy while doing it, and lately more and more musicians have been recognising this, The Attack being a good example... i hope that helps a bit

I listen to everything. Classical, Jazz, Classic Rock, Modern Rock (not pop crap), new age and instrumental. I really enjoy some soundtracks -Braveheart comes to mind- and flute music. My radio dial goes from CBC 1, 2, Chez 106 to The Bear.

For a modern rock band, I love Matthew Good out of Vancouver.... sadly they are disbanded now after their latest album, but I'm hopeful that I haven't heard the last of them. I liked Creed before they became wildly popular, now it's kind of wearing off.

quote:
I still like NKOTB

Ah, yes. This obbsessive girl discovered this plague at the impressionable age of eleven, didn't go too wild was Hangin' Tough, then, Step by step, all was lost at fourteen. Posters, cards, wallhangings, dolls, shoelaces and pencil cases were purchased. Birthdays, siblings and freaking PETS were memorized and still burned into some precious brain cells.... there for all eternity. The music was finally faced, when REAL males were discovered, only to realise that something more productive, say, reading a book, walking in the woods, or perhaps picking one's nose would have been time better spent.

Once I become benevolent dictator of planet Earth, I am going to outlaw "boybands" or any facsimilie of the facsimilies thereof.... after erradicating nuclear warheads and solving world hunger.

Just thought I'd give fair warning.

Trinitty, what are you doing on babble at midnight? I thought you mostly posted from work! Come to think of it, you haven't been around much lately at all - what's up with you anyhow?

My band of choice right now is Nickelback. I think it's a phase....

I however always favor anything hard and pounding - like Iron Maiden, Metallica, Black Sabbath and the like. There are too many of those kinds of bands to choose a favorite from!

What makes music "classic" anyway? Is classic rock classic in the same way classical music is classic? Or is classic just another word for old?
Discuss.

right now my favourite albums are propagandhi's "today's empires, tomrrow's ashes", le tigre's "from the desk of mr. lady" and (sigh) the weakerthans' "left and leaving". billy bragg and tom waits are also big in my cd player as of late.
