Title: What are you listening to now?
Post by: Alfie on May 13, 2011, 11:23:17 AM
What music are you listening to now?

This morning I woke up to the sound of wai jai dai gaa by Lanna Cummins, a Thai pop song from about 7 years ago. It's a nice, pleasant fun song sung by a luke kreung from Chiang Mai.

After that, I listened to an old favourite of mine, Kon Tang Kon by Tai Tanawut (คนทั้งคน - ไทธนาวุฒิ ). It's from 2003. I used to love singing this song in the various karaoke places in Korat. Great memories of great nights out.  :)

Earlier today i was listening to some morlam sing.
Missus likes the music, i like the girls dancing, but really i like the music too.
I dont know in Thai, maybe you guys can get your missus to find it on youtube, sure it will be there.
Missus calls him best i can understand her either "od for ed" or "ot for et"
Good luck with that one.

Hi Brett

I like a bit of morlam too but I don't know who your wife is referring to. Here's some of my favourite stuff, from 2004 IIRC. The group is Rock Sadert (Rock Saderd) accompanied by the lead singer "Yu" (who greatly improves the band IMO).

1. Soi Sadert,    2. Paw Ga-turn    3. Hai Tong Kam  4. Ai Geup Sawoy

Yeh I like it too, silly as it sounds, i find it relaxing.
Lek was saying what she could hear of it (coz still in bed and computer in living room) that it sounds like some words are Thai and some Kmher. These people come from anywhere along the boarder?

Hi Alfie,
Spot on,

If you happen to find anymore, please feel free to post them.
I especially love his dancers! Thinking about trading mine in for a newer version.

Funny enough, i was listening to OD Four s again tonight, if it isnt them it is Carabao.
We were luck enough to see them live here in Melbourne.
We went with another couple of friend we know (with farang husband who hate a beer like me) we made a night of it and stayed in a hotel overnight, jee it was a good night.
I dont know what they are singing, well actually i dont understand what they are saying but Lek has explained to me each song what they are singing about. I love their style and they were so good live.
It cost us 60 bucks to sit close to the stage, Lek reckons it would cost the equivelant to see them there.
So i was happy :-) And Bparn yes please, she is great.

In 1970? A schoolboy! Too young to be a Mod or a Rocker. In my older days, I had a motorbike, a leather jacket and was into rock music. I never considered myself a "rocker" though. Just a biker. I think the Mod and Rocker thing was before my time.

I have this permanently on emergency music stand by , volume set to high , close you eyes and imagine this , there I am sitting in my old comfy chair , clutching an old dog-eared copy of The Sun newspaper , I hear foot steps on the gravel drive way , I dart over to the window to be met with a sight that would normally turn any married man instantly to stone . The wife marching towards the house like a Death Star storm trouper her face like thunder , her eyes on fire , a look that announces she's not a happy bunny , my mind goes into guilt overload , what have I done wrong now , the footsteps get closer , I press the music centre play button and return to my old comfy chair clasping my trusty lightsaber . She of the Dark side is about to step through the door way,  I can never win , I am doomed  :(

Play this and you can just feel Mrs Vader coming down the gravel drive way  ;D

Hello Salika Donga. Glad to see you haven't been abducted by aliens!! (Some of the other members seem to have been spirited away!).

I suppose I was thinking more on the lines of Magic Bus, or something like that. (I was actually thinking of another song but I can't remember which one now!!)

No I haven't, and I actually had never heard of it but after reading your post and doing a little google search I can see it's something I am going to HAVE TO LISTEN TO. I already have one of the songs on the album - Just for the box. It was on a FREE album - Best Of or Greatest Hits or Gold or something like that. It was a 4 disc album from the early 1980s.

I'll hunt out Tuesday Morning, too.

Best of Free seems to have come in many formats over the years, with different titles as you note.

I believe that the original 4 disc set came out as a limited edition in the 1970's. It was then copied and could be purchased in Germany as a look alikey, but not as a limited edition. I had a copy years ago but it jumped about like buggery (ahh the vinyl years!)
Title: Re: What are you listening to now?
Post by: Alfie on July 07, 2011, 11:14:26 PM
Yeah, the one I had was a limited edition. It wasn't actually mine. I borrowed it from a work mate. I borrowed it for 5 years before I gave it back to him!! It was sooooooo good.
Title: Re: What are you listening to now?
Post by: Toddy on July 07, 2011, 11:19:09 PM

You are absolulely right!! Called The Free Story, but effectively best of (although because it endeavours to tell a story, that is why they include non-Free tracks at the end).

Actually, thinking about it now I believe that there was a crappy single disc cheapo affair called Best Of Free. A bit sort of Pickwick style??

Queen & Paul Rodgers - Under Pressure.

Under Pressure has got to be one of the best rock songs around. The Freddie and Bowie original combination was dynamite. Freddies's soaring vocal showed Bowie up for what he is: a bloody good popular singer; but without the sheer class of Freddie. Still, the two complimented one another and it was a classic.

Rodgers was great in his day and seems to gel quite well with Queen, but it just lacks that whoompf!!  :)

Even I am old enough to know that this is real music!
My parents had a friend who used to play bass in a cover band called "Baker Street" and this was there main song.
These days, although on the odd occasion i will listen to recent stuff (mainly coz my colleague does at work) the only time other than that is when i have my kids overm normally they will listen to modern stuff in my car.
These days, i think i am showing my age, i listen to talk back radio.

Since picking up on this thread and watching some of the videos posted, I have discovered (I know, i'm like a boy from the country) that there is a video on Youtube for just about every artist I can think of, so I have been sitting listening and watching most nights to a variety of music.

To give you some idea of my varied likes; The Dubliners, Christy Moore, Brian Ferry, Vangelis, Mike Oldfield, Queen, ELO, Phil Collins, Elton John, Louis Armstrong and it goes on.......... but one album that I had forgotten about was A Concert For George, featuring some of the great names of what I call my generation. I had the two disc dvd of this back in the UK and used to love sitting with a glass of scotch or two, listening and watching this with the volume gradually growing on the surround sound as the scotch went down.

Well, SD, I had never heard of this artist - Van Morrison I like, but this guy, never registered on my radar. This is one of the great things about K-F: you learn stuff from other members.  :)

Mmmmmm. Very modern. Very multi-cultural. Has a Rolling Stones feel to the video. I won't be rushing out to buy. Or download, or whatever the hell you do these days. Bugger.

I love to get drunk
I love the movies
I love my TV my couch and my VCR
I love the way the sun reflects off the hood of my car
But I don't love you anymore

I love to drink late
I love to sleep all day
I love pinball and poolhalls and cheap draws
I love the way the neon signs light up the walls
But I don' love you anymore

I used to sit with you everynight
It got to the point where I'd get sick at the sight of you
I can't stand to sit around and think of
everything that's going on without me

I love the whiskey
I love to smoke till I can't breath
I love to fish at night and BBQ under the porch light
I hate to sing this song and think of you
crying alone
But I don't love you anymore

Hi & Happy Christmas all.

On a slightly different note, I am still in England until I retire to Thailand in 2012.

I listen a lot to a radio station called 'Smooth Radio' soft rock & classics from 70' 80's etc but they have had a sister station for December called 'Smooth Christmas'. I have been wallowing in nostalgia & rubbish christmas songs for about three weeks now but I am just about full now.

Today I have reverted to 'Classic FM' playing classical music

Best Wishes, Paul

They are a couple of guys who like to have some fun in their videos. Don't know if you ever got to watch a US Tv show called "World Series of Poker". Reality show about a card tournament where everyone puts in $100,000 and they keep playing until there is one player left with all the money. Well the theme song was by Big & Rich.

I like that first one, rdrokit.  8) Reminded me of some songs I downloaded years back and haven't played for a while. Here's a couple of them.

Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee

Great music Alfie. Too bad they are all dead and gone but their music lives on. Love Sonny Terry, he's one of the reasons I picked up playing the blues harp.
Here is another influence on my playing. Unfortunately he to is dead and gone.

I just downloaded an album by Slash who was the guitar player for Guns n Roses. He has cleaned up his act and is now recording solo. Will let you what I think about it. he is an outstanding guitar player.

Noodles,
Trower is a great guitar player. Especially like his 1997 album "Someday Blues". Well I listen to Slash's first album called "Slash". He has a second one just out called "Apocalyptic Love".  Not bad. Each song had a guest singer. Most songs were Hard Rock and a couple were slower. In my younger days I would have loved the album as I use to listen to AC/DC, Led Zepplin, Whitesnake, etc but I find as I am getting older (now 64) I tend to like less "intense" music. His guitar playing is great on all the tracks. Here are a few tracks that I really liked.

RDROKIT, just listening to those tracks you posted.....thanks. I hope you like The Camel track, Andy Latimer's playing is first class.

Trower is superb, I already had 4 of his albums but d/loaded a 28 album bundle hence I was listening to him.
Someday Blues is in the comp. so I will certainly give it a listen.

Today at the gym I lstened to:

Noodles,
Let me guess, you're from England as all 3 of those groups are British and some not known outside of Europe. I think System 7 would be good workout music as I have heard them in clubs along with Prodigy.and yes Andy Latimer does an excellent job and has been doing it for 40 plus years.
I am now listening to a playlist I call "The Other Guys" who are artists I like that are non mainstream. Here are a few.

This one about a soldier in Iraq. "Dad" is the term the Marines call Bagdad.

Yes I am, well spotted! I really liked the 3rd one from Jason Isbell.

To give a bit of balance, here are 3 guys from across the pond, who I like very much indeed, pretty well known but may make it into your "other guys list".

Saw Mark Lanegan with Q.O.T.S.A. this is from the album Bubblegum.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2vZpf6XhYM

Tom Verlaine, I have a lot of his solo stuff but his guitar work and vocals (for me) shine brightest on songs like this.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZC217xS6ZQ

Finally The Mars Volta, some moments of magic and some are just self indulgent pap, this is one of their gems

Post by: rdrokit on March 22, 2012, 07:52:07 PM
Noodles,
I liked all 3 but Mars Volta was my favorite. i will have to look into downloading some of their music. I find I am drawn to a bluse/rock sound. I call it Roadhouse music. here are some examples.

One of my favorites. he's only 31 and been doing it since he was 14! Recording that is. :D
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uUeman1pvQ

Old white guy at age 67 and still recording.

Child prodigy, was playing SRV at age 7. He's 38 now.

They were an Allman Brothers Band side project and are still recording.

A Texas band been together since 1973 and still recording. They do rock and blues.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ib9qz8ns3Tw

This guy is from New York but he still has soul. His name is Popa Chubby which is slang for getting a woody or getting a stiffy, :D

One more. Young guy from California. Song is a little on the long side which can happen in a live performance.

A great choice here. Ryan Adams is a very talented singer/song writer. I like his alt/country sound. Not sure if your into American country but if so here are a few non mainstream artists for your listening pleasure.

Chris LeDoux who is a rodeo bull rider who recorded his own music and sold CDs at the rodeo events before he got a major recording contract.

RDR, re The Mars Volta, that song "The Widow" is great but in true MV style on the album it then drones on for about another 4 hours with a load of self indulgent drivel. They have moments that are awesome and then  ::)  These are from the album 'De-loused in the crematorium"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NsxAJAqook0

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8lKUl_bO4QA

Before The MV 2 of the guys were iin a band called "At The Drive In", full on and at the time was so refreshing.....well you know one's meat is another's poison and all that!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NYbojdoAQE

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8wR1MVdDmUA

Joe Bonamassa is good and I like K.O.L. have their first 4 albums and saw them in London, they seemed to have changed direction a bit recently, the earlier stuff had a bit more punch, 2 from their awesome debut.

Finally if it's blues it has to be SRV!

And this guy wasn't too shabby either, in fact for me he just edges SRV out, only by a whisker mind.

Same year I met a young guy called Christy Moore playing  a solo gig in a half empty bar and had a beer or 2 and a chat, he's Irish too and still going strong but he's bald and fat these days ;) Great folk singer and everyone in Ireland knows his name.  He started a group called Planxty

I do like Rory's music and he has had a big influence on modern day guitar players. Of course it's all down to personal opinion. IMHO here is the greatest guitar player playing a song by the greatest song writer.

Noodles, here is my favorite Irish musician. He use to play with Skid Row and Tin Lizzy before he went solo. He can do everything from blues to hard rock. Most of his early albums 70s & 80s were mostly hard rock but he seemed to mello the older he got, kinda like me. :D Unfortunately he died last year and will be sorely missed by me. I am working on a Best of playlist and trying to narrow down the 85 songs of his in my library to about 30. here are a few I really like, hope you do too.

Good stuff, yes enjoyed very much thanks.......Gary Moore was a superb guitarist.
Thin Lizzy were the first band I ever saw, back in the day (December '76 London Hammersmith Odeon....or was it '77?) and they were a great live band. I saw them after that many times and I'm sure with GM at least once.

I last saw them at the same London venue in '05, with Scott Gorham, the only original member in the lineup, no Lynott, no Downey and no Brian Robertson but still a great show as those songs are timeless.

Jivvy, Glad we can turn you on to some new music. That's what this thread is about. ;)

My hard drive crashed last week and I had only about 90% of my music backed up so I am revisiting many artists the past week. I bet many of the music lovers out there did not know that Mick Jagger has a solo career. He has six solo albums with the last, Superheavy, in 2011. Here are a few.

I can remember when QOTSA first came out in the 90s with their hard rock I called them a "stoner" band because for me to appreciate them I would have to be stoned. :D  But lately the have changed as they have been working with Billy Gibbons from ZZ Top (now there's a band) and I really liked Make It Wit Chu and I'm not stoned ;D

Anyway I can give you all a review of Steve Miller's lastest album called BINGO which is his first album in 15 years. It's a Blues/Rock album and I liked it. Here are a few songs off the album.

Well have not gotten too far on my Tourch singers but thought I'd share this singer with you. Living in Thailand and just about all Thais believing in reincarnation I think it rubbed off on me as I think this girl is the reincarnation of Janis Joplin. Janis died in Oct 1970 and Beth was born in Jan 1972,,,,anything is possible. You can make up your own mine. If I posted this before forgive me as I am getting old. :D

 Not the best acoustics but thought you should see her.

Yes, RD, the 2 BH live vids. were very good, she looks like a right handful!

Janis..........never really listened to her but will do now after seeing that performance........pure class.

OK, so shall we now we plot a different course..."ladies who do the business"

First up....L7, who should have been massive but weren't. Famous for getting naked on live TV in UK on The Word.....Terry Christian what a complete bellend!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xeC2tmEC37U

Melissa Auf Der Maur of Hole fame. Saw her in London playing as Auf Der Maur....great performance.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3_Yrmhwnu8

Next up....this lady needs no introduction and imo this still sounds good.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jxpe1oSp_sg

Beth Gibbons of Portishead, great vocalist.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gEQNAZGoZrw

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=niIcxMuORco

(Alison) Goldfrapp: When the first album came out it was so highly original, the second moved in a more electronica/dance style but still with plenty of James Bond type themes and strings. IMO the first 3 albums are superb, and all on YT in their entirety, so if you like her, very easy. 4th album not bad, 5th (imo) awful. A lot of her songs are about risque themes and live she has erotic dancers/costumes.............so a great live show!

Poor "OLD" White Fang, got his Nu Metal and Eminems mixed up with his Dolly Partons.......you could have made an effort with your newly found link posting skills and put at least one female vocalist/artist on-line.

RD....Pat Benatar, another blast from the past, looking and sounding good.

I used to read a music mag in UK called Sounds, it used to print a family tree, which took an artist or a band and then made a family tree from different members leaving and creating new acts and new members coming in from other acts, a big f*** off musical/family tree being the result, so if you want to play along, how about a link from one artist to another, tenuous links welcome ?? Just a suggestion to get people posting?

OK so: (tenuous link at the bottom)

So carrying on from Eminem, Eminem sampled Dido on his huge selling "Stan", Dido's son is called Stanley, Stanley Road is an album by......Paul Weller!

I remember when I "discovered" Melissa Etheridge in the 1980s. I thought her music was absolutely wonderful and I told my work mates that she would be the next big hit (in the UK). They didn't seem to believe me and weren't that much impressed with my awesome new tape. Turns out they were right and I was wrong. But I think it was a different story in the US - or maybe not. Anyway, here are some of her tracks that enraptured me during that period.

rkrokit, I have fond memories of the first time I heard Nora Jones. I was on a romantic holiday in the south of Thailand with the now Mrs Alfie. The mood was happy and relaxed, the weather was warm and the food was good. All was well and this song and the rest of the album made  a perfect accompaniment.  8)

Robert is an American blues guitarist who plays more up beat blues. 5 time Grammy Award winner with a great voice and plays one of the cleanest Stratocasters. He has a full band with brass section and keyboards. If you like his music I would recommend downloading his album "The Definitive Collection".

Alfie,
Yes I also like Little Town who are a country band from America. They did some of the music for "True Blood" the TV series and that is were I first heard them. I now have 3 of their albums.
I get that "6 degress of seperation" when not out for music. I had another bout of it when I was watching a TV show called "Revenge" form the States and heard this girl singing a hauting rendition of Metellica's "Nothing Else Matters". So off I went and Googled the show and found out the girls name is Lissie. Then I went out to Pirate Bay and downloaded all her music. Now I have a Lissie playlist. Great sound and nice to look at. :D

Lissie seems like a very professional and competent singer with a good voice. I'd give her 9 out of 10. Maybe I should listen to some more of her songs but she doesn't quite have the 'Umph' with those songs for me to give her 10 out of 10. Pleasant enough to listen to, though.  :)

Another 6 degress of seperation. I was watching the movie Contraband and during the end of the movie they were playing Boom Boom which is a old blues classic and the band playing it was doing a great rendition of it so I checked the credits for the name of the band and downloaded some of their music. Great sound IMHO. They are from the US and have a regional following in the Northwest of the US. Here is some Big Head Todd & the Monsters. Hope you enjoy.

Sorry whitefang, not my cup of tea.

Been listening and watching as I have the video  "Tribute to Stevie Ray Vaughan" from 1996 which probably has the best gathering of guitar players on stage. If you get a chance download the DVD off a torrent site. Also has interviews with all the artists. It's 80 minutes of great music. Some of the artists on stage, Jimmie Vaughan (Stevie's brother) , Eric Clapton, Robert Cray, and Buddy Guy, B.B. King, Bonnie Raitt, Dr. John, Art Neville plus the Double Trouble Band.  A few clips from the DVD.

Thought i'd post this in this thread instead of "Do You Remember" as this artist is still playing at age 62. He has been playing the guitar since he was 6 years old and did not get a sniff on the Rolling Stones Top 100 Guitarists even thought I think him better than many on the list. I think the problem with some of the artists who did not make the list is they are not mainstream and may play to a nich auidence like this guy. So without further ado here is Joe Luis Walker for your listening enjoyment.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EUbf9HzNJKM 

I don't usually post cover songs but as the original was done by Eric Clapton who is #4 on the Top 100 list I thought I would include it. He does a great job of making his guitar weep. At least IMHO.

That show had some great music. I'd sit there watching with Sound Hound (http://www.soundhound.com/) on the iPad identifying tunes I liked.

waterheart, very beautiful song. This might help explain the song.

The words of this song ( from the Disney movie "Pocahontas" ) was written by Stephen Schwartz. When asked the meanig of his words, this is how he answered:
 
Thanks for your interest. I feel somewhat guilty to have to tell you that the phrase "blue corn moon" has no actual meaning in Indian lore. I made it up because I liked the sound of it. Its basis is this: In preparation for doing the lyrics to POCAHONTAS, I read a lot of Native American poetry. One of the phrases I came across, in a love poem, was : "I will come to you in the moon of green corn." (The Native Americans called their months "moons" and named them according to something that happened seasonally, such as the arrival of green corn.) The phrase stuck in my head, but I didn't think the lyric : "Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the green corn moon" really worked, because of the association of the moon and green cheese, plus the "ee" sound in it, etc. So I changed it to blue corn moon, which I thought had a nice resonance to it because of the phrase "blue moon" and the fact that there are things like blue corn tortillas, etc. Even though it's not authentic, and actually implies Southwestern tribes rather than the Northeastern Algonkians of Pocahontas, I used it in the lyric and it obviously served me very well. This is probably far more than you wanted to know, but that's the derivation of the phrase, for whatever it's worth to you. Sincerely, Stephen Schwartz

Definitely! Everytime I see your name, HighwayStar, I think of this 1972 Deep Purple song.

The Manish Boys - I Pity The Fool - from 1965

The singer is Davey Jones. You probably know him by another name: David Bowie. One of the guitarists is a young Jimmy Page, later of Led Zeppelin.

Good one Alfie. I was listen to some old Savoy Brown. Hellbound Train is from 1972 but the video is from a later date as the band looks a little old. Still sounds great though.

Thanks for that, rdrkt. I'd never heard of either the song or the band but I'm glad I know them now. I really like Hellbound Train. I enjoyed the slow moody beginning but I was still waiting for them to kick it up a gear or two until they eventually did. Great stuff. Awesome live, I would imagine.

2 great videos RD, especially liked a) the harmony between Glover and Lord in SOTW and b) those yellow spandex plus fours in the Hush vid.

Here is a complete departure from Deep Purple.........whilst back in UK a friend turned me on to this group. IMHO a really great sound:

Noodles,
I like the cover of the Doors Roadhouse. Can't get into the gym body slamming music. You got me thinking about covers and who did good renditions of the originals. First one that came to mind was Hendrix's All Along the Watchtower which was a Dylan cover. I actually like the Hendrix version better. I do like Patti Smiths cover of the Stones Gimme Shelter. She could pass for Jagger's sister.  :D

rdrokit quote; You got me thinking about covers and who did good renditions of the originals. Me too!
There are some songs (not many) where the cover is better than the original.
Jealous Guy (Roxy Music) better than Lennons and While my Guitar Gently Weeps (Jeff Healey) better than Harrisons.
This one for me is the pick of the bunch, one of the greatest songs of all time.

Before everyone comes home some Marley, Jimmy Cliff, Yellow Man and Burning Spear to finish off the day. A mish mash but I like it.

Mel,
I was going with the obscure CW artists. If we go mainstream than we can't forget these artists.

Been listening to James Solberg who played with the Nighthawks, Fabulous Thunderbired and quite awhile with Luther Allison before forming his own band. He has recorded 5 albums so far. This is a great redition of a Bob Dylan song. I will post more of his work in the Blues Lovers thread.

Mel,
Can't go wrong with Clapton. IMHO I think he is the greatest living guitar player. There are some young guns out there trying to dethrone him. Here is one of them playing a song from the greatest guitar player of all time.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_B-5gaOdcg 

Maybe should be on the blues thread but it shows off his guitar playing.

I like Seasick Steve. I got his Can't Teach an Old Dog New Tricks album. If you notice real close he is only playing with 3 strings.
Title: Re: What are you listening to now?
Post by: Alfie on October 28, 2012, 09:17:20 AM
I hadn't noticed that but you're right! It sure makes a good sound even with only the three strings. Wiki says the "Three-String Trance Wonder" has an "E string in the A position, a D in the G position and a G in the B position". When my guitar strings break I might give that a try to see what sounds I can make!
Title: Re: What are you listening to now?
Post by: Alfie on October 28, 2012, 09:34:53 PM
And here he is playing a one stringed "diddley bo"! What a guy!!

He makes the same kind of sound as before. The sound I like seems to be coming from using the slide.

I wonder if when he was homeless and a hobo he couldn't afford to buy strings when they broke so he learned to play with less than 6 strings.

John Mayall and the Bluesbreakers: great, nostalgic memories... Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Mick Taylor... Those were the days! :-\

I'm on Neil Young in this period. Did you know about his collaboration with DEVO in 1978? If you're a fan of both (and of Booji Boy), check out this one before they remove it from Youtube again. The image is blurred not only because of low resolution, but also because it is part of a long oneiric sequence in Young's movie Human Highway (1982).

Very interesting, Anton. It's the first time I've seen or heard that clip. It's very much of the time (1978), with some definite punk influence, both in the music and the style of singing. Have you see the whole movie?
Title: Re: What are you listening to now?
Post by: Anton on December 10, 2012, 06:47:26 AM
Have you see the whole movie?

Yes I have and I found it worthwhile. Visionary and fun. It starts out with the Booji Boy character reciting an edited version of the lyrics of Blowing in the wind on a nuclear catastrophe background (just to give you an idea). Here is a trailer: youtube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BOz12CN7tM). You can find it as a torrent out there, but no high resolution I'm afraid. If you need more info you can PM me anytime  :)

My house too. Here are a few.

Thanks Rdrokit for proposing something else from the obsessive junk that is being inflicted on us in every shopping center these days. I liked all three of them. Also a way to bring back to mind old performers whom you don't hear about anymore. For example I was surprised by what I just learnt about The Ronettes.

Here are a few from my side. I start with an American author to link with yours (Roger Miller), but the others are European. The second is by one of my favorite interpreters, Italian singer Antonella Ruggiero, formerly of legendary Italian pop group Matia Bazar. This is her version of traditional Welsh carol Deck the halls as featured in her Christmas album I regali di Natale (2010). The third, an original composition by Charles Aznavour, is available also in English under the title Christmas calypso, from Aznavour's My Christmas album (1981). The other three are classical carols performed by popular European singers.

I can't find a video of it, but Molly Johnson does a blend of Ooh Child and Redemption Song that I love!

Not everybody knows that the original version, Le moribond, is by my fellow national, Jacques Brel, who published it the first time in 1961. Brel's lyrics, however, were more burlesque than melancholic, in line with the character he was. Here is an old performance, with English subtitles:

Some people say there was not much good music in the 80s but i am not one of them. Listening to some Whitesnake which was David Cloverdale's band after he left Deep Purple.

LZ can be a bit ropey live in my opinion, especially some of the archive stuff, but they really nail it on this performance - fantastic!

That brings back memories! I remember going to see them in concert at the old Hammersmith Palais, they were really good, but the lead singer could have been the worst in the world and I would still have gone!

I've been listening a lot to 'Surfs Up' by the Beach Boys, not their usual fare, but a great, great album. Its been a long time since I heard it. I have it on vinyl but with no means of playing it and I finally got around to buying it in a more modern format. Here's a bit of an oddball video of one of the tracks on the album.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7cTIYsvJOQk

I recall seeing them live at Knebworth in 1980. I believe that was the last concert with the original line up? Its available as a live concert. That was a good place to be, also performing were Santana, Mike Oldfield, Elkie Brooks, Lindisfarne and the Blues Band!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LEeX5HtzX7I


I, AS A PERSON (Io come persona, by Giorgio Gaber)

In this time of inescapable decline
Spreading fear masked by indifference
In such a chaotic corrupt time
Anything could happen, anything can happen

In this shattered absurd time
We've so much information
Yet we know nothing at all
In this terrible time, terrible anywhere in the world

In this time the western dream is falling
As its hopes are swiftly rising
In this time our people are killing one another
Without reason, without reason

I as a woman or man
Who can’t feel desire, can’t understand
Who can’t assess, assess or believe anything
Who has seen it all wondering: "Have I made my choice?"
"Have I made my choice?" "Have I made my choice?"

In this time everything overwhelms us
Decisions and decisions are made
Without our consent
In this time our only empowerment
(And it’s our fault) is taking a vote

In this time with no possible way out
And men, and fates
Seem to hold our fate in the palms of their hands
In this terrible terrible time
Anywhere in the world

I as a person, I stand
With all my feelings, goals unachieved
With my faith wasting
Feeling dazed and spent with dismay
Feeling confused and empty

Without power
Resigning to never make a choice
Never make a choice, to never make a choice
In this time, in this terrible time

We just seem to drift away from the world
With the pain of a defeated man, disenfranchised, estranged
But this kind of salvation is no salvation
It’s self-protection and you know it’s not the answer

And our defeat is this: we want to do something
But we can do nothing, we can do nothing

But I am here as a person
As a person I'm still here
With all my feelings
With all my deepest feelings
I am here, I am here

With my outrage, with my anger
I am still here, I am still here
With the will to change my life
I'm still here, I am here with my faith
With my faith I am still here

Here I stand as a person
I am here, here I stand
As a person I'm still here
Here I am, here I am
As a person, as a person
I am here

Thanks for the songs. Of course I knew the Allman Brothers and ZZ Top, but not the other groups you mentioned here, perhaps because they are from a later stage when my personal musical tastes moved towards other genres. Of those you posted here, I particularly liked the last, Omar & the Howlers.

Back to the Lynyrd Skynyrd's spinoff bands that I mentioned earlier, I found that all 3 studio albums by those bands are available in full on Youtube. The links to the full albums:

Thank you for that too. During the golden age of progressive rock, flutists mushroomed on the scene, but I think that only one could really compete with Ian Anderson and is still active now: Thijs Van Leer of Focus (The Netherlands).

I agree. making love sounds much better than having sex. The world sure has changed since I was young and it has not been for the better. Not sure what is to blame, schools, parents, politics, maybe all of them but that's a topic to another thread.

He was a very nice guy and a great musician.

What pub was that? Realise your not talking about where he played, but I used to see bands play at the Red Lion in The Broadway (Bob Kerrs Whoopee Band was a favourite) and at the Brittania, but didn't really venture past Stamford Bridge into Chelsea. I also sometimes used The Highwayman before matches.

I think it was called The White Lion or some similar traditional name. It is further up Fulham Road opposite the C&W Hospital and now called The Fine Line or was last time I was in London.

Once a week I try to devote a day to acquainting myself to new artists.....and boy there are MANY. Today I have 3 new artists/bands all from the US.

First are the Polica an alternative/indie band
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6WgWCIkH9U

Next is Lana Del Rey, guess you can call her music gene Pop.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78oSuSMmFsE

Lastly is the Handsome Family an alternative country band. The first 2 are fairly new but the Handsomes have been around for about 10 years. You might recognize this song as it is the theme song from the new HBO series True Detective.

Youtube is becoming more and more like a digital record library and a cornucopia of full albums from the past. Enter the name of any memorable band from your youth, followed by "full album", and see what you get. The last two days I couldn't get this off my turntable notebook:

Thanks Anton, did my emails today while listening to that album. Yes, Youtube is great for music. Whenever I can't find a music torrent I can usually find on Youtube and sometimes if I just want one song off an album it is easier to grab it off Youtube.

I bet most of you know how to get an mp3 from Youtube but in case you don't this is how I do it but there might be an easier way of doing it. First I copy the web address of the Youtube video and paste it in a free program called YTD Video Downloader in the download tab of the program. It then downloads the video to my computer. I then use the Convert tab of the program and it converts the video to an mp3 file. Takes all of about a minute unless you are downloading a complete album. Hope this is help.

There used to be Websites that allowed converting quickly online, one video at a time. I once pointed to one of them in this forum. Then the service worsened, apparently because of a stricter copyright policy by Youtube.

So I looked up for a program to install, I quickly found Free YouTube to MP3 Converter (http://www.dvdvideosoft.com/products/dvd/Free-YouTube-to-MP3-Converter.htm#.UzbjFKiSySp) by dvdvideosoft and I'm happily using it since then. I converted a countless number of Youtube videos with it in the last 2 years. It converts directly into .mp3 without intermediate steps - or rather, it does all the necessary steps by itself. It offers a choice of 3 or 4 different bit rates for your files. You can compile a list of videos and then convert them all in a row. It is easy and intuitive to use. Like in your YTD Video Downloader, you just need to paste the desired videos' url (their Web addresses) into the program's main window. However, before starting download, you need to set the destination folder manually yourself, or else you'll have trouble finding where the files are stored by default. It's easy to do: Tools > Options > Output > Output folder > Browse... Also, when installing it, watch out for undesired downloads it may try pushing to you. Read carefully each dialogue and make sure to discard any undesired option.

All the free file sharing sites (bearshare, frostwire etc) are a mine field of malware and trojans. http://grooveshark.com/ is by far the best way to listen to free music (harder to download though).

Yep, I knew I wasn't the only one downloading and converting Youtube videos. :)  The programs that do the work are quite handy and they are free. Quite remarkable actually as they take all the formats on Youtube, avi, mp4, mkv, etc, download a file to your computer that can be quite big, 50 - 80MB, than convert them down to an mp3 file of around 6MB or so.

I wish that uploading .mp3 files on Youtube was as simple. First you have to make them into videos. I tried once with Windows Live Movie Maker and found it all but easy to use. Nevertheless, following instructions I found online, I finally managed to convert a couple of full albums into videos, about 30 minutes in duration each, format .wmv. However I couldn't manage to upload them. I tried several times but always ended up getting an error message from Youtube: "Your video is too long"...  :o Nonsense!

Hillbilly Hip-Hop   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WjF4eOnjCLE   

One good way to get all the music you'll ever need is to get a subscription to Spotify or Rhapsody. And then legally remove the DRM from the songs.

With Rhapsody I know you'll need a VPN. I use STRONGVPN. Both Rhapsody and Spotify are pretty cheap, like 10 USD a moth, and have 10s of millions of songs. (no viruses either) You can download an unlimited number of them. The catch is that the songs are 'locked', with only certain ways you can copy and play them. A program like Audials One will legally remove the 'locking DRM'. Audials One costs like 50 USD but is worth it, as it also can do a lot of other stuff, like dl youtube videos. After removing the DRM from your songs you now have regular MP3 files with cover art, track information etc. I've gotten thousands of songs this way. You don't have to keep the Rhapsody or Spotify subscription forever, either.

A new Johnny Cash posthumous album was released last week, and it's all "forgotten" original studio recordings from 1981 and 1984, a real goody for fans. From Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Out_Among_the_Stars):

Out Among the Stars is a posthumous studio album from Johnny Cash, released through Legacy Recordings on March 25, 2014. The recordings come from lost 1980s sessions with famed countrypolitan producer Billy Sherrill which were shelved by Cash's record company, Columbia and discovered by Cash's son John Carter Cash in 2012. Cash also recorded the 1981 album The Baron with Sherrill in an attempt to turn around his dismal album sales but the strategy did not work, leaving his record executives eager to dump him.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udjzM0ChRbE


Personally I like the 1980's Johnny Cash albums (from "The Baron" to "Is coming to town") better than all others, although his popularity and commercial success was down in that period.

Thanks for that, rdrokit.

From then on they wouldn't let you use the programme unless you had written an email. I didn't so I lost access to a good programme. However, I've downloaded the one you posted about and it does the same and more. Very good. Thanks.

Good one Waterheart. Been listen to some sound track artists lately. Ever been watching a TV show and a good song starts playing and you wonder who the artist is? Well this has happened to me a lot while watching some US TV shows. There is a cool website that list all the TV shows and what songs are played in each episode. I have found a lot of new artists this way. here is the website, http://www.tunefind.com/browse/tv (http://www.tunefind.com/browse/tv)
Here are a few artists I have discovered.
This from a TV series called Ray Donovan which was on Showtime. They sound a little like the Stones

Neil Young released his new album "Storytone" 5 days ago. It is Young's second new release this year. The standard release comprises songs 11 to 20 in this video. Songs 1 to 10 are only found in the deluxe version. Thus, I would advise you to start listening from song 11 at 37:05, if you care for it.

Thanks Anton. I like Neil Young. Been listening to Morphine, a band that fused jazz, blues and rock together to create a unique sound. They were doing great until their lead singer died of a massive heart attach on stage in 1999. They had a sax player who played 2 saxes at the same time. Also unique to this band is the only guitar was a bass played with a slide.

Thank you for that, I didn't know them.

I don't know by what strange association of ideas, reading your explanation made me think about Violent Femmes. Then I found that both groups are labelled as alternative rock on Wikipedia, but similarities stop there. I used to own all of Violent Femmes albums up to "Why do birds sing" (1991). Time to look up for the next 3 albums they released after that. This is their first (1982).

I think "Black girls", from their second album, is one of Violent Femmes' most remarkable songs. Among other things it features two raging mouth harp appearances (at 03:09 and 04:11 in the video). What other rock songs do you know featuring a mouth harp among the instrumentation?

Anton,
I believe that is the first time I have ever heard a mouth harp (Jew's Harp) played in a rock song. Have heard it in Ozark Folk music and in some Blues music.

Rdrokit, thanks for the honesty. You probably did without knowing it. This is the most famous, listen carefully from minute 02:00. You can "google" them up easily, if you want more.

One of those instruments you would not associate with R&R. Kinda like the kazoo which is actually used a lot but overlooked. Some classic examples.

Kazoo man in pop-rock is Edoardo Bennato to me. He started out as a one-man band busker in his hometown of Naples, many years ago; then went on to mark the Italian music scene in a lasting way with many hits. I already quoted one of his songs once in this forum. In this video taken for an Italian TV channel he went back to his roots for the joy of fans. His lyrics are never dull. If anybody is interested to know what he is singing in these 2 songs here, ask me and I will try to translate.

Frank Zappa playing kazoo in a 1967 TV commercial soundtrack he made. If you guess what other particular instrument he is playing here, without looking it up in Google, you are a genius.

Ruth Underwood playing kazoo for Frank Zappa during a 1974 TV special. If you are impatient go directly to minute 9:49, but you will be missing out on some great music.

If you care for it, you can look up on Youtube two more Frank Zappa songs featuring a kazoo:

- You're probably wondering why I'm here (album "Freak out!", 1966)
- Goblin girl (album "You are what you is", 1981)

It was released recently, I did not know about it until now. It's not available on Youtube but it took me 10' to download it all from other sources. Guest musicians are Mark Knopfler, John Mayer, Willie Nelson, Tom Petty and Don White.


JJ Cale died last year. He and Eric Clapton had released an album together in 2006 (The road to Escondido).

Been listening to some more oldies. This time it was the Steve Miller Band. Then I thought, some of the old timers are recording new music, maybe Steve was and low and behold he recorded a 2010 album, "Bingo" and a 2011 album, "Let Down Your Hair". A little know fact is that before the band become The Steve Miller Band in 1966 it was called the Steve Miller Blues Band. The 2010 album is primarily rock with some bluesy riffs and the 2011 album is Blues/Rock and Blues. Good to see artists going back to their roots.

From 1976 Not the best recording but you can see Steve with his over/under guitar.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdB9lTUyshM

This on off the 2010 "Bingo" album. Again not the best recording but you can see how he aged.

Anton,
Not bad but I think Mike Ness has a better voice. Just MHO. Got out some old Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo or as they were later called Oingo Boingo. One of the first alternative, new wave bands. I liked their horn section which I think set them apart from similar bands.

The coughing was not by Zappa but by one of his talented associates in those years, named Dick Barber. Watch the original TV commercial to appreciate the soundtrack better (the speaker is not Zappa):

My favorite album is their second, Grand Funk of 1969:

My favorite song is "Out to get you" from Good singin', good playing' of 1976, album produced by Frank Zappa, and with Zappa playing guitar here (at 00:59 and at 03:22):

P.S. Anton a lot of accordions in Cajun and Zydeco music

We can explore about the washboard in pop-rock next...

In France, Gérard Blanchard tried to impose the accordion in rock since 1981, without much success. Among his followers, the group Blankass. In Germany, metal group Rammstein features accordion in some of their songs. In Italy, a beautiful song by pop-rock guru Adriano Celentano is remembered also for a long and swaying accordion ending.

I shall sing (Canterò)

To whom lives alone every day
To whom never stops traveling
To whom must wear grey, far away
But carries a wheatfield in his eyes

To whom sleeps in a train station
One suitcase and a cardboard pillow
To whom hears a foreign language
And wakes up across the border

I shall sing, I shall sing
If they hear me they will get the message
And maybe feel a bit less lonely

I shall sing, I shall sing
Even if breathless
The song for those who went away

To whom writes a letter a day
With frozen hands in wintertime
A teardrop dampening a love word
And a rose stinging his hand

To whom every night misses his child
Left behind in a grass green garden
To whom stares at a photograph
While melancholy takes over

I shall sing, I shall sing
Even if breathless
The song for those who went away

To whom is awaiting springtime
To go back to the good old life
To you, who make me fall deep in love
When I see you two meters away

I shall sing, I shall sing
If they hear me they will get the message
And maybe feel a bit less lonely

I shall sing, I shall sing
Even if breathless
The song for those who went away

Good for the fire (Un uomo da bruciare)

Now that you are the grocery shop helper
And tips in your pocket make you feel rich
Now you can aim high - As high as her

Her mother, that witch, always the same
With her killing looks, always so venal
Might finally become more friendly

You feel stronger now, a real man – Oh yeah
Talking about buying a house – That's right
And she will give herself to you in reward, heartfully

You can have her, you can have her with all of her love
You can have her, but you can't even imagine the price you'll have to pay
Run, flee and save something within yourself
Don't let them do it, don't become a man good for the fire

The air you have been breathing until now
Still carries a scent of real things, of pure things, of freedom
No, don't worry where and how you will struggle along
With whom and for whom you will erase your name

Half a pound of ham - Yes ma'am.
Is your child still in bed with a fever?
What a shame - He wants cream cheese, too!

Life behind the counter, just to build
A future that will grant her
Security, a car, something to be envied for - You can have her

You can have her, you can have her with all of her love
You can have her, but you can't even imagine the price you'll have to pay
Run, flee and save something within yourself
Don't let them do it, don't become a man good for the fire

I'm coming too. No you're not (Vengo anch'io. No tu no, 1968)


We could go all of us to the municipal zoo
                    "I'm coming too!" "No you're not"
To see how the wild beasts are doing
And shout: "Help, help, the lion is out"
And peep at what will happen next

                    "I'm coming too!" "No you're not"
                    "I'm coming too!" "No you're not"
                    "I'm coming too!" "No you're not"
                    "But why?!" "Because"

We could go all of us now that it is springtime
                    "I'm coming too!" "No you're not"
Arm in arm with our girlfriend to talk about love
And find out that it always ends up raining
And peep at what will happen next

                    "I'm coming too!" "No you're not"
                    ...

We could then all hope in a better world
                    "I'm coming too!" "No you're not"
Where everyone is ready to cut your hand off
A beautiful world only with hatred but without any love
And peep at what will happen next

                    "I'm coming too!" "No you're not"
                    ...

We could go all of us to your funeral
                    "I'm coming too!" "No you're not"
To see if the people then really cry
And find out that it is a normal thing for everybody
And peep at what will happen next

                    "I'm coming too!" "No you're not"
                    ...



CENSORED VERSES

We could go all of us with the mercenaries
Down to Congo to enlist with Mobutu
Then shoot the negroes with a machine gun
For every head, they give a penny for civilization

We could go all of us to Belgium in the mines
To see what happens when grisu explodes
Come out as beautiful corpses in the lift
Nicely wrapped up in the tricolour flag

A well-wishing message to those of your kids who are approaching adulthood. Enthralling live version below, followed by one with the original French lyrics.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=heDTCglZwS0


May you (Puisses-tu, 2010)

You will experience grief for no reason
You will come across treachery too
You will hear their words galore
Sometimes touching on madness

You will witness baseness, impudence
You will experience aggression too
And you will see microphones held out
Towards naked women and children

May you live, keep on
May you love, keep on
May you draw some water
From the well of your nights

May you smile and even laugh
When the worse is yet to come
May you love without frowning
May you simply keep on

You will experience sorrow galore
And the troubles that all people share
You will hear requests and tears
Sometimes verging on madness

And you will see all those new worlds
That you'll think you already know
You will taste the fruits of passion
And the bitter taste of disappointment

May you live, may you love
May you live, keep on
May you draw from the well
Of your nights, and dream

May you live, keep on
Without frowning, and love
Who you are, who you are
Who you are, who you are

May you love who you are

But just now, I'm listening over and over to Pete Townshend's 80's album, 'White City', which is about life in the 60's on a council estate of that name in Hammersmith, in West London. I love this track:

I honestly don't know, sorry.

I think my interest in the album is knowing the area and the estate. 

I wonder if Pete Townshend still owns 5 homes in Richmond? That always struck me as a bit odd.

He's certainly still got this one.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wick

Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall used to live two minutes walk away, that's just Hall now, with fantastic views down the Hill to the Thames and beyond. Ronnie Wood used to live just down the Hill in Petersham, until he split up with his missus! Richmond's that kind of place.

Eh Ah Ah (EAA, 1976)

Eh Ah Ah... We are riding so fast
Eh Ah Ah... Nobody can stop us now

Down the slope - Nobody can stop us now

Straight to the ravine - Nobody can stop us now

I spoke to the driver
And he whispered in my ear
That the brakes are broken and don't work no more

He told me that it's not his fault
But that he will do his duty thoroughly
"And then we will see"

Down the slope - Straight to the ravine - Nobody can stop us now

I had a moment of inattention
And the driver pressed a button
And he catapulted out

Who would ever guess it
That this coach was so well-equipped
And that he would catapult out

The others keep on striking up a choir
They haven't realized yet
And they keep on singing

I would like to grasp the steering wheel myself
But then, thinking it over...
Why on earth should I bother?

Things are taking a bad turn now
I'm tempted to press that button as well
And to catapult out

They are riding so fast
They haven't realized yet
And they keep on singing

When you are fed up of being your second half's eternal lapdog, try adapting these lyrics to a Thai context.

PS According to Wikipedia (http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vesoul_(chanson)) this song was already adapted in English by different artists, but I couldn't find any of those adaptations on Youtube

Football fans might recognise this tune. I believe Chelsea play it at home matches, but I have heard it at Yeovil Town home matches when the players come out. Other football teams also use it apparently. The Harry J All Stars - The Liquidator.

Finally after years of oppression we are free
The world broke free: no more fears, violence, injustice, barriers, walls
I'm proud that I can declare that we really got free of everything!
The only thing that I couldn't do is... to get free of freedom
(Giorgio Gaber)


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0UHFkM1uuQ


Freedom (La libertà, 1972)

I wish to be free, free like a man
I wish to be free like a man

Like a newborn man with only nature in front of him
Who walks in the woods joyfully pursuing adventure
Always free and lively, he makes love like animals do
Careless like a man who is satisfied with his own freedom

          But freedom is not staying upon a tree
          It isn't the flight of a bluebottle, either
          Freedom is not an open space
          Freedom is participation

I wish to be free like a man

Like a man who needs to roam with his fantasy
And who can do this roaming only within his democracy
Who has a right to vote and spends his life delegating
And who found his new freedom in being bossed around

          But freedom is not staying upon a tree
          It isn't having an opinion, either
          Freedom is not an open space
          Freedom is participation

I wish to be free like a man

Like the highly-civilized man who stands with his intelligence
And who defies nature with the undisputed force of science
Eager to go wandering, without limits, in the cosmos
He is convinced that force of thoughts is the only freedom

          But freedom is not staying upon a tree
          It isn't a gesture, an invention, either
          Freedom is not an open space
          Freedom is participation

They were touring together, with Ten Years After performing after King Crimson, if I understood well. So Ten Years After were "closing" the concert each night. Hope this is clearer  :)

Frank Zappa's last posthumous album was published in June this year. In Zappa's own words it is "a synclavier album called Dance me this which is designed to be used by modern dance groups" (source (http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/frank-zappas-final-album-dance-me-this-plots-release-date-20150404)). It's mainly electronic music, a genre I personally don't appreciate in Zappa. Three tracks stand out as they incorporate throat singing, including by master Tuvan singer Kongar-ol Ondar (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kongar-ol_Ondar). Here is the title track.

When I was young (a few years ago) I always thought of Joe Brown as a makeweight in the world of popular music and did not realise how much he was respected by other musicians.
Joe was asked by Olivia Harrison & Eric Clapton to sing ‘Here Comes The Sun”, ‘That’s The Way It Goes’ and to close the show with ‘I’ll See You In My Dreams’, a favourite song of George’s
Here he is closing the 'Tribute to George Harrison concert'

Probably you never heard about Italian band I Nuovi Angeli (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Nuovi_Angeli). In the late Sixties-early Seventies they strung a series of catchy tunes, some of them so irresistible that they could have smashed into the international scene if sung in English with proper promotion. This one presents a special tribute to English pop music: the entry is almost identical to that of an old song by a historical British band. Can you tell which one?

A trip to England (Un viaggio in Inghilterra, 1972)

Her scented skin, her colored mouth, why? - For love!
Her black hair I've been loving until yesterday, yet - I must go!
What a grief - Ah ah ah I will leave - Ah ah ah I will leave

        A trip to England - By a jet taking me so far away from you
        A trip to England - Doesn't mean that I'm ready to forget about you
        Blue-eyed little girl, in my heart you'll remain
        Laugh with me, don't cry no more, you know I love only you

I'm beside my self, I wish I was flying up there already - In the sky
Don't cry honey, the flight is just one hour and then - I wil call
And then I'll come back - Ah ah ah I'll come back - Ah ah ah I'll come back

        A trip to England...

        My love, a few days after all... What is it to you? Don't cry baby it will pass

        A trip to England...

Could I interrupt your listening about English song?
Now, I'm listening and practice to a Thai song.
It's an old song and very popular in 1989.
It's E sao transistor , อีสาวทรานซิสเตอร์ (A lady who likes listen to transistor radio more than stereo)

In Thai lyric says traan-sis-sa-tor (ทราน-ซิส-สะ-เตอร์)  but I've learned English , it says transistor so it becomes difficult for me to sing it.  ;D ;D

I post it because I think that you can understand it with easy Thai words and music is local Isaan style.
If you don't understand some parts , I can explain to you.  ;D

Thanks for that rdrokit - Albany Down and Vintage Trouble. Great stuff. Will listen again...

I'll work my way back through this thread !

I'm listening to Laura Cantrell - try 'Two Seconds' and 'Do You Ever Think Of Me' and Lucinda Williams. Was recommended by a poster called 'Goyathlay' on another BB.

Getting a little older I find it hard to stay in touch with 'new' stuff.

What do you think of the 'Heng Band' who play at the Check Inn Fridays ? The line up has altered and I'm sure they'll be ok but I thought the previous lot were capable of being astounding - their 'Estranged' re. Guns and Roses, unbelievable.
The old line up will be much missed by me .............

Rediscovering Nino Ferrer (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nino_Ferrer), especially his albums with participation of Irish guitarist Mickey Finn (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mickey_Finn_(guitarist)), one of his favorite session musicians. These two are taken from "Blanat" (1979). My own quick translation of lyrics below.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=znp0eaGWTOA


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Zr6PX_2TlM





The black tree (L'arbre noir)

[sung in French]

     That tall black tree
     That smoky sky
     Outside my window
     Of misted glasses
     This crackling fire
     These reflexes on the walls
     Scent of these flowers
     On this gloomy furniture
     And noise
     Of those raindrops
     Beating on the roof
     At night

     It's a setting you know
     Can you recall it?
     Remember the fireplace
     The books read and reread
     Nothing changed, it's still the same
     Yet it's all so different
     A feeling of sleepiness is wafting
     Or of sadness? I couldn't say
     Perhaps it's just time passing by
     Leaving some dust behind
     Of dead dreams, of false hopes
     Perhaps it's your absence, sweetheart



Screw (Scopa)

[sung in English]

     I'm talking to the lady of the land
     She's the last one, she's the lonely one
     I wish I could remember what she said
     We're talking about love
     Toujours love

[sung in a slangy Italian]

     There's nothing left to do
     There's nothing left to do
     Remains only to do
     What most wishable to you
     And my most wishable to me is screwing
     And therefore then I screw, screw, screw
     All my life I screw, screw: so little is left anyway
     And therefore then screw screw screw
     Screw screw screw... Screw screw screw...
     Screw screw screw... Screw screw screw...
     ...Screw with me

[additional Italian verses added in a later version]

     It's not true anyway
     What I was learning
     When I went to school
     'Twas all rubbish
     The world is evil
     And therefore then screw
     Screw with me

One I never get tired of is Jean-Louis Aubert (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Louis_Aubert), former leader of legendary French band Téléphone, now with a brilliant 30-year solo career behind. He is already in this thread, reply no. 592. This song from album "H" (1993) has become one of his landmark hits, never left out from his concerts. Here the original video clip with French lyrics if you open it up in Youtube, followed by my own quick translation, followed by a live version that lets you grasp all of the man's lovableness (starting at 1:07:40; the drummer Richard Kolinka is another former member of Téléphone).

High time again (Temps à nouveau)

As dolphins are kings
Let silence take over
As eligible ones are entitled
To attempt metamorphoses
As revolutions
Are now made at home
And when the world collapses
It’s just a new broadcast

          It’s high time again
          Oh high time again
          To catch our breath again

          It’s high time again
          Oh high time again
          To jump into the water

As we’re reduced to a system by now
And its American police
No more talks of a better world
Barely save this one

          It’s high time again...
         
As I am my own aquarium
Me the poison [poison], me the fish [poisson]
Turned into a man

          It’s high time again...

Good time to jump into the water

Two songs by one of my lasting idols. Amateur live recordings as he never enjoyed much attention by mainstream media. My own quick translation of lyrics.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x-3JIxlW5mI


Slothful (Pigro, 1978)


You can quote classics by heart
But you can’t tell
The branch from the leaf
Slothful!

"A fertile mind is the basis", you say
But your science
Generated ignorance
Slothful!

          And those dirty words slipping out of your mouth
          To help spicing up your learned conversation
          Like snail slime unmistakably show
          How useless really are
          Your silly higher studies
          Slothful!

A goat for your milk, a woman for your lust
But you can’t see
How bored your wife is

You punish your children in an exemplary way
Then you say "We are free
None shall judge"
Slothful!

          And those dirty words...





http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3tpXqMp9qw


Doctor Jeckyll and Mister Hyde (Doctor Jeckyll e Mister Hyde, 1979)


Turn him over and he’s the same
He endorses himself
Even as a child he used to indulge
Letting his own faults pour out
Doctor Jeckyll Mister Hyde

Wherever you place him, he excels
You run into him anywhere
At the coffee shop, under the actor’s feet
Reciting money and love
Doctor Jeckyll Mister Hyde

          He is… He is…
          Not what you are but what you want
          Doctor Jeckyll Mister Hyde

Ouh! He always had so many women
Ouh! Toys for the mind and for the body
You! Even you, if not in daylight
Resemble him at night
Doctor Jeckyll Mister Hyde

Now he tours on his own
Pays everything with words, with his mates’ life
Breaks his neck and keeps mutating
And his troubles are his throne
Doctor Jeckyll Mister Hyde

          He is… He is…
          Not what you want but what you are
          Doctor Jeckyll Mister Hyde

Legend has it that Waylon Jennings wrote this song in 1969, inspired by an advertisement for the Ike & Tina Turner Revue. Willie Nelson then contributed to lyrics. Tina Turner recorded it towards the mid-Seventies, along with a series of other country and pop songs different from her usual repertoire, in the period she was trying to break away from Ike. That was before appearing as the Acid Queen in "Tommy". Those songs were published in two different albums, an official one in 1974 and an unofficial one in 1979, that I personally like better than anything else she did with or without Ike. The 1974 album is titled "Tina turns the country on!" and was never released on CD. The 1979 album, featuring also this song, was originally titled "Good hearted woman", but was re-issued many times in economic editions, with different covers and titles. Both fully available on Youtube (links below).

Steve Goodman wrote this one in 1979: does it show its age?

PS I think it's a kazoo raging here from 1:06 on. We talked about kazoo in rock/pop from reply no. 534. Goodman was more folk and country-oriented but he explored every genre. I've been reading about him after posting the Banana Republics video, downloaded some old albums too, and must say I'm surprised he is not better recognized in the USA.

Unfortunately Goodman died in 1984 at age 36. He did get 2 Grammy Awards, both posthumously. He was more of a writer than performer. His most famous song "City of New Orleans", was covered by numerous singers.

Have you heard this song "My Truly, Truly Fair by Guy Mitchell 1951" ?
There was a Thai song กินกาแฟ , gin gafair or kin ka fei that used this English song.
* people often say eat instead of drink.  ???

* people often say eat instead of drink.  ???

I have the impression that the term "gin" กิน is often used with both meanings in spoken language, while the word "taan" ทาน is used strictly only for "eating", never for "drinking". I also have the impression that the word "duem" ดื่ม is used preferably for "drinking alcoholic beverages". For example, I often hear กินกาแฟ like in this song here, but never hear ดื่มกาแฟ, while I often hear ดื่มเหล้า. Is that right Waterheart?

Another question if I may: do Isan people normally prefer using "gin" or "taan"?
Title: Re: What are you listening to now?
Post by: waterheart on November 04, 2016, 09:28:04 AM

Is that right Waterheart?

We say gin khao (กินข้าว), gin nam (กินน้ำ), gin nom (กินนม), gin ka fair (กินกาแฟ) , gin lao (กินเหล้า) , gin beer (กินเบียร์) also.
Why do we use gin so I look up in Thai dictionary.   

กิน = เคี้ยว เช่น กินหมาก, เคี้ยวกลืน เช่น กินข้าว, ดื่ม เช่น กินน้ำ (gin means chew , drink)

ดื่ม = กินของเหลวเช่นนํ้า , ดื่มด่ำ , ซาบซึ้ง (drink means gin liquid , appreciate)

duem , we use as formal or polite. It may be the Education , when I was young , I said gin but when I went to school teachers taught us gin and duem then taan (ทาน) or rubpataan (รับประทาน).   

So new educated parents teach their children duem, taan, rubpataan but when children talk to friends, they still use gin. Umm.... it's Thai traditional culture, can't change.

Then you can see office workers, new friends in public places say duem and taan but labours, close friends in groups say gin.  ;D

Another question if I may: do Isan people normally prefer using "gin" or "taan"?

Isan people say gin in their villages and we say taan when we go to meeting or formal places.

One more thing :
taan doesn't mean eat but it means give.
rub means get
pataan means give from higher ranks or royal.
So rubpataan exactly means get from royal.

A story, There were many palaces in Bangkok and there were many food and offerings to service the visitors. When officers and nobles came to visit, the first question was rubpataan rue yang (รับประทานหรือยัง) : do you get anything yet? It meant everybody can eat or get things back. So visitors said got already or rubpataan laew (รับประทานแล้ว)   
 
We use rubpataan (รับประทาน)  for getting things.
We use rubpataan ar han (รับประทานอาหาร) for eating.
So taan ar han (ทานอาหาร) is short form.
But we confuse our words. But we understand.  ;D

I bumped into the lead guitar from the 'Heng Band' (ex. Check Inn) on Wed night - he plays sometimes in the 'Oasis' now. He was telling me that he'd seen the recent 'Guns and Roses' concert in Bangkok. (Sorry can't recall this Guy's name).

Not a G and R fan myself (the voice of Axl Rose - ouch !) but I love their track 'Estranged' that the Heng Band played regularly.

Just MHO, but Heng sang it better than Axl and this Heng Band lead guitar played it better than Slash. Repeatedly.

Two things I miss about Korat, my Friends obviously and the Heng Band !
G and R have seen better days but this is still worth a watch.

Renato Zero (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renato_Zero) has been among my favourite Italian pop singers since his first important appearances 40 years ago. I had posted an old song of his two years ago (see here (http://korat-farang.com/forum/index.php?topic=132.msg59127#msg59127)). This is a 2004 live version of a song from his 1977 album: Zerofobia. My own quick translation of lyrics and original album cover. A curiosity: that same album contained also the song "Tart girl" (Sgualdrina), being a cover of Supertramp's 1974 hit "Dreamer". It's on Youtube, too.

Dummies (Manichini)


Pulling your strings is it God or Satan?
Pulling your strings is it a man or a woman?
Who begs you, who hates you, who will wait for you?
Someone or something must be pulling your strings

Faceless, ageless dummies
Fine strings intertwined by luck
Equal fate, same truth
Dummies have a soul but maybe they don't know

        Too soon to go, too soon to understand
        Too soon to die… Now why "too soon"?
        Since the reason pulling your strings
        Is only time, and too soon it will come

Pulling your strings is that drunken wretch of your father
Few strings are pulled by your overwhelmed mother
Progress rallies against your artlessness
But sooner or later your conscience will prevail

Faceless, ageless dummies
Dummies in the hands of another dummy
Dummies in old looks, dummies are we
Dummies to be as long as you wish

        Dummies give up, flop around at your will
        Dummies keep hoping in a change of lot
        They are true friends until they find out
        On their own feet how to move about

When those dummies become meaningful to you
Such a dummy you will no longer be
Dummies grow up but they never lose
The desire to slip into a real man's skin

Listening to some T-Rex. Great band with a tragic end. Lead singer and guitarist Marc Bolan died in a car crash in 1977 at age 29.

I knew T-Rex and Marc Bolan but I never knew what I just read on Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T._Rex_(band)) about them:

From 1970 until 1973, T. Rex encountered a popularity in the UK comparable to that of the Beatles, with a run of eleven singles in the UK top ten





By association of genre, another one Alfie will like:

Jivvy and rdrokit - that's one of my all time favourites.
Topping the table when I first heard it in 1958 - I could hardly believe my own ears at how good it was. Used to listen to the Platters on my Unc's 78's too.
I saw them live in The Locarno, Swindon in about 1965 ? 4 bob entry !
Advertised only the night before, just 60 people there.
Tony Williams voice is one of the purest ever IMO. ATB

The Platters broke down (Si sono rotti i Platters, 1959)


Hey boy?
Yes Sir?
Bring me the Platters
Right away Sir! (shattering noise)

DAMN IT !!

The Platters broke down
What to do now?
What will become
Of life without Platters?

Tell me who was that rascal
Look what a damage he caused to me
Even my sweetheart told me goodbye
She ran far away and will never come back

The Platters broke down
What an evil destiny
But whoever broke my Platters
Will pay for it, yes
Whoever broke my Platters
Will pay for it

Sour lyrics, reminiscent of historical events at that time. My own quick translation.

Play, Jimi


A street in New York
A boy lying there
Face downwards, exposed
A lifeless rag by now

People don’t see him no more
They pass over and keep on walking
Pursuing who knows what
Even they don’t know what

          Play, Jimi!
          On the jungle, on azure seas
          In the boundless skies and wherever you are

          Play, Jimi!
          On the sun-drenched lands, on tents and deserts
          For the open-minded ones, for all of us

Barely fifteen years old
Lipstick on, waiting for
Anyone with money that
God knows how she will use

People don’t see her no more
They pass over and leave her there
Abandoned to a sealed destiny
To a street already booked for her

          Play, Jimi!
          On the houses, on jammed roads
          In the greyed skies and wherever you are

          Play, Jimi!
          On the blazing gulfs, on airbases
          For the open-minded ones, for all of us

          Play, Jimi!
          Desolate oil-rigs in the seas
          Grim helicopters and wherever you are

          Play, Jimi!
          On the trains, the valleys, the knocked-down walls
          On the starving people, for all of us

          Play, Jimi!
          For all the open-minded ones, for all of us
          In the boundless skies and wherever you are

          Play play play play play, Jimi!

Been listening to this minimalist group called Walk off the Earth. In the first video they are playing tubes and pebbles. Watch for the guy coming down the stairs with the bowl of popcorn do the jump split and kick the symbols with his feet.
The second video I don't even know what instrument they are playing and the last video all 5 of them are playing one guitar.

Interesting as I just made a workout playlist for my wife with an hour of 70's-80's disco songs. Being an English group they did not make a big splash in the USA but I do remember "I Can't Stand the Rain" which was an Ann Peebles cover from 1974.

Now these guys were big In the USA during that time. Song reminds me of an old girlfriend.

Alfie and RDRO - thanks for that.   :)
'Rain' is one of my of my favourite songs - Donna Summer ? Aretha ? et al .

Ann Peebles great and I liked both Eruptions ! I remember a lead singer in a band at Butlins doing a great job on 'Rain' and also 'Kris Gayle' of 'Gayle Force', a local Cornwall band. Kris Gayle was black and gorgeous and one of the very first coloured people in the dear old County - a long time ago. Just loved her !

I don't know how to copy these tube things. But anyway, here's the famous 'Heng Band' ex 'Check Inn' hit covered OK by Coldplay at Glastonbury. It's not up to Hengs classic though. ATB

Love Tom Petty. Have all his albums. I am off to the USA July 1 for 2 months and will catch this artist at the Blue Note in Napa California. A short bio in case you never heard of her.

Janiva Magness (born January 30, 1957)is an American blues, soul and Americana soul singer and songwriter. To date she has released twelve albums.

The Blues Foundation named Magness the B.B. King Entertainer of the Year in 2009, becoming only the second woman, after Koko Taylor, to be so honored. The award was presented by B.B. King himself and Bonnie Raitt. In 2014 she released her first album of all originals entitled Original which earned her the award for Song of the Year. Magness has earned seven Blues Music Awards with 25 similar nominations. USA Today stated, "Magness is a blues star."

The 1969 Spooky Tooth-Pierre Henry album:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpQ4I5DE0OI


Spooky Tooth didn't like it. From Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ceremony_(Spooky_Tooth_and_Pierre_Henry_album)):

The album is considered by singer and songwriter Gary Wright to have ended the band's career. "Then we did a project that wasn't our album. It was with this French electronic music composer named Pierre Henry. We just told the label, 'You know this is his album, not our album. We'll play on it just like musicians.' And then when the album was finished, they said, 'Oh no no — it's great. We're gonna release this as your next album.' We said, 'You can't do that. It doesn't have anything to do with the direction of Spooky Two and it will ruin our career.' And that's exactly what happened."

I posted some pop and rock songs featuring a jaw (or Jew's, or mouth) harp from reply no. 531 on. Now I discovered this other one, from Joe Walsh's 1981 album "There goes the neighborhood". You can hear it clearly starting from 0:14. On the album's internal sleeve we read that Walsh was playing it himself. Funnily, the instrument is erroneously named "jawbone" there. That's a percussion instrument that has nothing to do with a jaw harp. Maybe confusion induced also by the fact that another track on the same album is titled "Bones".

A member of the zither family. Maybe not a Gayageum but I guess other kinds of zithers are featured in pop/rock music.

She can really wale on a guitar. You can see me at the 13.49 mark. I am the tall guy in the black shirt with the ponytail. Great concert in a small venue.

New artist to me, Michael Samuel Kiwanuka is an English soul musician he has been compared to Marvin Gaye, Curtis Mayfield, Bill Withers, Randy Newman, Terry Callier, and Otis Redding. I think he sounds a little like Marvin Gaye.

Been listening to some Jimmy Barnes. He has the most charted albums of any Australian artist which include his band Cold Chisel and his solo albums. Being a bluesman I like his later solo work the best.

I have heard some people say that the 80s was the worst decade for music. I disagree as every decade has some good music. Agreed that some decades are better than others. So I have been listening to some 80s music and enjoying what I hear. I know disco was big in the 80s but hey I like to dance.:)  Here's some you might have forgotten.

One of Nino Ferrer's best albums: La désabusion ("Disenchantment", 1993). Mickey Finn on lead guitar. I wrote about them in this topic before, see reply 643 (http://korat-farang.com/forum/index.php?topic=132.msg64949;topicseen#msg64949).

I quickly translated from French lyrics of two songs from it: the first, a solid blues rock, penned by Ferrer with Finn; the second, a homage to latin rock, penned by Ferrer with bassist Joël Segura. Pictures on both videos are paintings by Ferrer.

End of the world blues (Blues en fin du monde)

     During the end of the world
     It is recommended
     To follow to the letter the instructions
     By the Company in charge with procedures

     During the end of the world
     It is not recommended
     To lean out of the window
     On the rail track of reality

     Family is defunct
     Honour is spoilt
     Jobs are getting rare
     Homelands are endangered

     And when the wave is so big
     And you are so small
     You need to swim like a fish
     Or chicken out like sheep

     And when the wave is so big...





Arriba Santana

     Maracas merengue
     Mariachi marimba
     Arriba Santana
     ¡El Porompompero, te quiero!


     Latin America
     Is like my cousin girl
     Women are sublime
     And the cuisine is excellent

     Latin America
     All is bigger than very big:
     Bars, swimming pools
     Hotels and shantytowns with no latrine

     Maracas merengue...

     Latin America
     The forest recedes
     The road dominates
     And I’m running out of oxygen

     Latin America
     Tribes flee over The Amazon
     They slaughter them like rabbits
     But music is divine

          And the Carnival? Terrific! - De nada

In the meanwhile two Dylan covers, the only two I like on this tribute album of 2014. The first is from Hungary, the second from Myanmar.

American musician Jonny Olsen (reply no. 644 (http://korat-farang.com/forum/index.php?topic=132.msg65145#msg65145)) is not the only farang performing Isan-Lao luk thung or "Thai country" songs. There are also Swedish singer Jonas Anderson (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonas_Anderson) and Anglo Dutch singer Christy Gibson (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christy_Gibson) who were active both individually and as a duo until recently. They both grew up in Isan; Gibson grew up in Korat. They are popular among the Thais and appeared often on TV as Jonas and Christy โจนัส-คริสตี้.

A 2014 TV appearance, first song starts at 1:55, second song at 8:42. Not my cup of tea at all  :)

That's what I thought too, at first. In fact it's an ARP Odyssey (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ARP_Odyssey) synthesizer programmed to sound like that. See here (https://www.mixonline.com/recording/classic-tracks-joe-walshs-lifes-been-good-366083) for reference, and the video below.

Can get into the argument of "What is music?". Music is made by playing musical instruments. What is a musical instrument? Is it a instrument that physically needs to be "played"? Is a synthesizer a musical instrument? I guess if one was a purist then anything synthesized would not be music. Glad I am not a purist.  :D

Can get into the argument of "What is music?"

That's ground for endless discussion. Some extreme purists would hardly consider as "music" any of the songs posted in this topic. Better stick to Luciano Berio's definition: Music is everything that one listens to with the intention of listening to music (source (https://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Luciano_Berio))  :)


PS: Did you know that for Thomas Mann music is "politically suspect"? At least in the words of humanist philosopher L. Settembrini, one of the main characters in "The Magic Mountain". See here (http://blogs.usyd.edu.au/thinkmusic/thomas_mann_on_music/) if interested.

Listening to some oldies. In 1966 when I was a freshman in college we had a laundromat on campus that was open all night. We use to go down there around midnight, do our laundry and turn the jukebox all the way up and party. These are 2 of the songs I remember being on that jukebox.

Never saw the Stones in concert.

One of my all time favourite albums is 'Surf's up' by the Beach Boys. Not so popular with fans of their hit singles, I guess?

Play guitar (Suona chitarra, Giorgio Gaber, 1968)

If you let me sing the truth
I would sing it for all of us
I would sing of joys and sorrows
And my song would be sincere

     But that’s not what you want
     A clown is all you want

          Well then play guitar, amuse us
          Play guitar, prevent us from thinking
          About darkness and fear and doubt and censorship
          About scandals and hunger and humans like dogs
          Crushed and trampled on

          Well then play guitar, amuse us
          Play guitar, prevent us from thinking
          Play dear guitar and all together now!

If you let me sing I feel
That I would be so pleased
My song would make sense
My guitar would fulfill

     But I must wear the motley
     Entertain and divert and that’s it

          Well then play guitar, play your chords
          Loud enough to deafen us
          All the rest is past and gone
          Behave now to get cleared later
          To get your pardon paper

          Well then play guitar, amuse us
          Play guitar, prevent us from thinking
          Play once more guitar and all to the devil now!

          Well then play guitar, amuse us
          Play guitar, prevent us from thinking
          Play guitar, play your chords
          Loud enough to deafen us

          Play guitar
          Play guitar

What shall I sing for you? (Que voulez-vous que je vous chante?, Salvatore Adamo, 1971)

At the last edge of Africa
I saw the little Black
Getting a sound cudgelling
In front of my stage
Because he had dared
God save us!
Walk along my side
Defying the White taboos

What shall I sing for you?

At the doorsteps of Izmir’s
Or Ankara’s palace
Among princes and pages
And ladies in trappings
Angels dressed in rags
Were crying their hunger
While, like a jackass
I was kissing hands

What shall I sing for you?

   I saw the black zone
   The alps of coal
   Those towers of fire, at night
   That blazing skyline
   While men down under
   Were dying like dogs
   How could I forget?
   Some bore my surname

   What shall I sing for you?

Honolulu stimulates
And tans soldiers
A paradise entry-hall
To the one in the next world
Girlfriends in tears
Called in by the State
Attended a vigil at arms
As I was passing by

What shall I sing for you?

Poets and musicians
Beaten and deported
Entrusted their rhymes
To the wind of freedom
And whole peoples
Happily sang them
And whole peoples
Ended up in chains

What shall I sing for you?

   Nope, I didn’t see any of it
   I just heard about it
   I shout hip hip hurrah!
   Our life is not that bad
   I have nothing in mind
   My only ambition is
   Taking you to the party
   By singing a song

   What shall I sing for you?

It amazes me that they have been singing that song for over 52 years and can still perform it like they did in 1965. I wonder how many times they have sung that song. The song is older than most of the people in the audience. In MHO the Stones are the greatest band in history of music.

He is 74 and dances around the stage for an hour like a 20 year old. I'm 70 years old and go to the gym 3 times a week and while there do a 20 minute dance class and am out of energy. Some people just have a lot of energy. My mum was like that. At 87 she was still dancing and could go for hours.

Thanks Rdro and Jivvy - I listen to this thread when doing a crossword sometimes - excellent.
The Stones stuff is always interesting but the one that stood out for me was Isaac Kamakawiwo'le - an icon in his native Hawaii apparently - Jivvy thanks for 'larnin me !  :)

Pursuing that romanic vein - here's Susi Quatro and Chris Norman, 'Stumblin' in' - I first heard this played in 'Panache' Club in downtown Lagos and didn't know who it was or what the song was called. Finally tied it down 20 years later on a CD played by a seller at the River Kwai bridge.
I'm not a SQ fan generally but for me, this is great !

Yes rdro - I really don't like that 'Can'. But 'Stumblin' in' is sweet - Susi has a really nice voice - when NOT screaming ! On that tube - it's obviously the original recording i.e. NOT live, and the miming gets pretty awful as it goes on ! Good though. Chris Norman was the lead singer of 'Smokie' - just noticed that on Wiki.

First, I can't resist posting a song with doctor in the name rather than a band with doctor in it.

Doctor doctor by UFO. I love it. There was a band in Korat 10 years ago who could play a wicked version of this song.

Gregg Allman died last May. Did you know he had a son that was a musician? Well I didn't. His name is Devon Allman, he's 45 and been with a number of bands. Here is some of his music.

^ Nice music.

Here are a couple I've listened to recently. Both new artists to me but both nice to listen to.

Steve Earle - Copperhead Road

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhMO9azmKNU

Frankie Miller - Jealousy

Thanks alfie. I actually have that Steve Earle album but never hear of Frankie Miller. Really like that song and did some research on him. He's Scottish and been singing since 1966. Sad news,

Miller suffered a brain hemorrhage in New York City on 25 August 1994, while writing material for a new band he and Joe Walsh of the Eagles had formed with Nicky Hopkins and Ian Wallace. Miller spent five months in a coma; when he emerged, he was unable to speak or sing. He then went through rehabilitation. The BBC Television documentary Stubborn Kinda Fella (1999) featured Miller and his battle to recover. In this documentary, Rod Stewart stated that Miller "was the only white singer to have brought a tear" to his eye.

Miller is no longer able to perform, but a new album containing old takes by him was released in 2016. The album, Frankie Miller's Double Take, contained 19 songs remastered into duets with other artists.

Alfie - Thanks for 'White Punks on Dope'. Horrible. Sorry.

I've been listening to this track on a collection in the car - 'Jar of Hearts' by Christina Perri.  It's a fine example of 'music in agony', as perfected by Adele. (I love Adele but her songs seem all the same).

Anyway this is now a favourite of mine, but I don't think the dreadful 'Tubes' will approve.

Worth a listen maybe ?

Abba have announced that they have written and recorded their first new songs since they split in 1983. Press release - ABBA are back !  :o

''The Swedish four-piece, who had nine No 1 hits in the UK between 1974 and 1980, and who have sold hundreds of millions of records worldwide, announced on Instagram that they had recorded two new songs for a project in which avatars of the band will perform.

The band said in a statement: “The decision to go ahead with the exciting Abba avatar tour project had an unexpected consequence. We all felt that, after some 35 years, it could be fun to join forces again and go into the recording studio. So we did. And it was like time had stood still and we had only been away on a short holiday. An extremely joyful experience
!”''

Unfortunately I don't think Agnetha and Anna Frid will be bouncing around in those lycra suits this time. I wonder how the music will turn out ? Good luck to them . . .

Just stumbled across this - 'The Pistol Annies' - 'Got my name changed back'. . . .

(Brain not working for the 'Tube' - but it's in the Guardian link. Good fun.)

Maybe this will help. My latest playlist on my music channel. 60 songs give and take a couple as it is an ongoing playlist of Audio & video.

You're welcome. I just bought a new large screen TV and it has a lot of apps built in. One of them is YouTube so I decided to do a visual and audio playlist. I have the audio go through my home audio amp and speakers. Pump up the volume and I can't hear anything outside my room.  :)

Having reached the age of 62 I have recently been listening to in fact obsessively so, Pink Floyd and am playing the Live at Pompei double album in the house and car all the time. I cannot believe it has taken me this long to discover this great band and their music.

You got some lost time to make up. I heard them back in 1967 when they put out their first album. I must admit anything prior to The Dark Side Of The Moon I needed to be stoned to appreciate.  :D
