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

"Virtue is more to be feared than vice, because its excesses are not subject to the regulation of conscience." - Adam Smith

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:

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.

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 had a headache all day yesterday and most of the day today.  I'm feeling better now, but I still feel the need to chill a little.  So I'm playing this:





I've never liked the first track--those crickets are just annoying--but the rest of the album is great.

I just got the CD of Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights (1992) with Ralph Fiennes. It has never been released in the US, although I have a CD with part of it. Now, I have it all thanks to ebay. It's absolutely haunting. Here's the part that was released in the US.

Slightly off-topic, but related.  After owning "premium" access to Amazon Music, YouTube (Google) Music, SiriusXM, and Pandora, we decided to make a change. None of the services gave us the ability to listen to an artist without being interrupted with nonsense from other artists.  Ask for Chris Knight and you will eventually get a Pink song. No thanks.  :HB

On a whim, we tried Spotify. Ta-da!  :band:

Spotify, is smooth to use, plays what you asks, and makes recommendations that are actually related to the genre being requested.  I created a "favorites playlist". After a couple of days, the app said "we found 100 similar songs, do you want to add them to the playlist?"  After scanning the recommendation, hot damn, every song in the recommendation was something worthy of adding. (Okay not every song, but almost.)

Spotify is my new favorite recommendation.
