Everyday I start out with a "cd djour", the problem being-I have too many cd"s! When I am asked what my favorite song is-I have to say ALL of them!-Does anyone else have this problem? Have you settled on just one song, or genre? Do you listen to the music, or do you hear the words?
I have an Ipod that I put on shuffle every day. I don't have one particular favorite song, there are way too many! It depends on what kind of mood I'm in what music I'm listening to and whether the lyrics are important or the beat is more important.
Yea I only said that for effect, not an ounce of shovenism in my body, but I damn sure have a ton of women friends...and no, not on those lines. But we all are huge musical advocates in one shape or another. It's just something I've noticed from the majority of women I've met and became friends with. They always turn off the really deep substance filled tracks in favor for the more 'entertaining,' or whatever's 'hot' at the time....not all of them, but definately most of the ones I know.
Burning Spear-Jah a guh raid Bob Marley-WAR Eak a Mouse-Noah's Ark ...almost anything from Common, Talib Kweli and Mos Def Culture-Iron sharpens Iron ....."rebel musik," an espace from the temporary, or "herb tunes" if you're a 420 child.
Anything that doesn't sound like T-Pain or lady ga-ga (if that's her name).
I'm with you on that one. Somedays I'm into G Love, other days I'm looking for some Mazzy Star and other days I'm into Zombie or Rage Against the Machine....Wait! I think that is "socially concious music"! I knew I had some of that!
i rarely find music that mixes lyrical depth with musical excellence. my favorite band for years was Phish - a line to show you their lyrical depth "your hands and feet are mangoes, you're going to be a genius anyway". but they can play their instruments better than anyone.
of course i grew up on CSN and Jackson Browne and Dan Fogelberg and they all got it going on. it's usually a rare mix to find an artist that actually has something good to say and can actually create good music.
I sit at my PC most of the day, with Media Player randomly serving me music from a large and varied musical collection. Could be Jazz (Pat Metheny, Jan Gabarek), Classical, Rock, Opera, World, Folk, Pop, New-Age, hip-hop occasionally. Never listen to the words, as mostly there aren't any.
I tend to pretty much listen to anything that sounds good. Most of the times when I first hear a song I hardly listen to any of the words and often time just enjoy a good beat or something that sounds good to my ears. But yeah my fav. song always changes but I always love listening to Creed lol
I quit listening someone was very critical about my music and I listened for pleasure so it just wasn't worth it. So threw my schuffle in a drawer and packed up records and cds. I do miss it sometimes but I'm usually too busy anyway.
Who says its not appropriate? Its appropriate to do what makes you happy. My dad is 47 and goes to concerts with me, but no one we know would have a problem with that. Why do you care so much what other people think? Tell them to screw it and mind their own business.
Don't let that be the determining factor in throwing away one of your passions (if it was that for you). If it makes you happy turn that shyt up! Skrew it, buy some headphones or something and tell people you're listening to CNN or something. Just try not to nod back and forth too hard, it's a little obvious!!! lol.
I always hear the music first and mostly. I guess being a piano player is the reason for that. Like someone else mentioned, there are songs that have just the music soundtrack to them that I will listen to at times. This can be very soothing and relaxing.
Sometimes the vocals prove to be an instrument in and of themselves. The best example I can think of is Pan.Thy.Monium's "Dawn of Dreams". Seven songs; all "Untitled", and the guy just sings meaningless gibberish.
But it's one of the best records I've ever listened to.
I have so many songs and music I love, however i don't follow a band or singer, I like a bit of everything. I listen to the music and make up my own words-I get told off for doing this by my children-LOL
Post some of your favorite song lyrics. They can be profound, clever, silly, or they just caught you the right way one time, who cares? What are your favorites?Two of mine:Form Jethro Tull's "Wind Up:""So...
I'm a musician and know the power and value of music. I'm curious what people find emotional in music (and looking for trends for a paper I'm going to write).It's very simple - post the name of a piece of music that...
Pretty simple really - I listed my top 10 songs that I would listen to over and over again on a road trip. I received some pretty nice comments, and one was "I wonder what other peoples top 10 would...
