What Music Are You Listening To Right Now?
« on: April 06, 2021, 03:24:07 PM »
Whether you're writing, relaxing, or cooking, what are you listening to?

I'll start...





"The first lesson of economics is scarcity: there is never enough of anything to fully satisfy all those who want it. The first lesson of politics is to disregard the first lesson of economics.” – Thomas Sowell

"The State is an institution run by gangs of murderers, plunderers and thieves, surrounded by willing executioners, propagandists, sycophants, crooks, liars, clowns, charlatans, dupes and useful idiots—an institution that dirties and taints everything it touches.” - Hans Hoppe

Nothing that requires the labor of others is a basic human right.

I keep a stiff upper lip and shoot from the hip. - AC/DC

Man, I haven't heard Accept since the mid-80s. Udo was the frontman back then.

I'm actually subbed to the Nuclear YT channel. Not sure how I missed "Pandemic." Strong stuff.

Here's what I was listening to earlier today...

I was pretty enamored with the Metal Heart album when it came out but I gave it a relisten about a year ago and not much held up for me. I do like bits and pieces of Up To The Limit, Dogs On Leads, and Bound To Fail.

But, hey, you have to give any metal band that can produce a cool song about writing a letter due credit. :)

I put the Blood of the Nations album on as "workout music" from time to time, though not so much this year since I've been sick/fatigued/out of sorts.  But yeah, that album'll get you going.

I used to write in silence.  Music was too distracting.

Then I found some soul... or rather Soule... as in Jeremy Soule.  Now I write with this going in the background, and I've been putting out more words in a single sitting than I did before:

Imagine Dragons


First things first
I'm a say all the words inside my head
I'm fired up and tired of the way that things have been, oh-ooh
The way that things have been, oh-ooh

Second thing second
Don't you tell me what you think that I could be
I'm the one at the sail, I'm the master of my sea, oh-ooh
The master of my sea, oh-ooh

Or, this one...the video is weird, the lyrics strong.



Just a young gun with a quick fuse
I was uptight, wanna let loose
I was dreaming of bigger things and
Wanna leave my own life behind
Not a "Yes sir", not a follower
Fit the box, fit the mold
Have a seat in the foyer, take a number
I was lightning before the thunder

Finally, if you need motivation, this is the top of the list:

Iron Maiden dropped another song from their upcoming album Senjutsu.  Unlike "Writing on the Wall," this one isn't a video; just the song.

Gotta be honest... I don't care much for this one.  I like "Writing on the Wall" a lot--both the song and the video--but I'm not feeling "Stratego."    :shrug

Actually, that's my feeling about the band's music in general.  Very hit or miss for me.  And those hits are a recently acquired taste; in my younger days, I didn't like their music at all.

Anyway, here it is for anyone who hasn't heard it yet:

A free stream of Pagliacci from the Lyric Opera of Chicago. Very well done.

I like to listen Ravel's Bolero while I'm cooking. Not only do I like it, but it's just the right length, or sometimes a minute or two longer, for me to prepare most of my meals. I like quick and easy cooking.

I've been obsessed with The Olympians - The Olympians recently for more productive work and/or enjoyment



For relaxing writing music, Deep Divers - Dolphin Dreams



Usually when writing I just opt for white noise sorts of things like rain, but if the music is ambient enough hey.

Makes me want to get my horn out.   :band:

Unfortunately, my embouchure is completely gone.  It turns out fingers have muscle memory but lips do not.  I'd have to train my mouth all over again, and I just don't have the motivation for that.  Maybe some day.

I've been listening to a lot of William Byrd, his Masses for 3, 4, 5 voices. Heavenly!

Getting some work done at a local Starbucks, waiting for a buddy to show up.

Perfect time for chill, jazz piano...

I had two songs that I just had to listen to last night and they had nothing to do with one another. Even different decades.

Deep Purple by April and Nino Tempo

Shout by The Isley Brothers
