Music - do you love it?

Music surely saved my life.  When I was a teenager and suffering all the problems of that age, I found drugs,  and life became very dark.  Many people retire to that place in our minds where hope is lost; some make it back out and some do not.

I found music; I would lie on the floor with my ear next to the speaker and play the slow movement of the Beethoven emperor concerto.  The music was sad, but it touched my heart and I was no longer alone.    That same music eased the pain of TX for me.  It calmed me down and helped me deal with the problems of the real world while I was working.

I love music of almost all genres.  Perhaps not elevator music and pop music that sounds as if it was designed by the people that design ugly cars specked out by a marketing survey.  If it comes from the heart, I love it; be it the cerebral  notes of a Bach cello sweet -- almost mathematical in form; the passion of a choral and, at the opposite end, the pounding beat  of rock and reggae -- music that stirs a different kind of passion.

So  -- what kind of music do you like?

Funny, I have just been swapping couplets from the Grateful Dead tune, Box of Rain, with another forum member.  I was just thanking him for reminding me of music that I love.  I like so many kinds - if I had to pick only one it would be touch, but I guess folk music is one I'd hate to be without.

My taste of music have varied so much throughout the years but lately I really enjoy jazz and any other music that is soothing.   I use to really enjoy blues back when I was drinking, but I find it hard to listen to it sober.

  It’s hard for me to say because I like almost all forms of music. I never really cared much for Rap or Pop.

“The music was sad, but it touched my heart and I was no longer alone.”

While I was txing, I would listen only to dark music. It seemed to be the only thing I could relate to. I watched The Wallflowers “One Headlight” over and over on youtube.
I was like a little kid with my first album. I played it so much I had to stack coins above the needle to keep it from skipping.

The things we listened to as teens was so DARK, no wonder it was hard to grow up.  I listened to Joni Mitchell obsessively.  I like everything but must confess I don't like straight country (bluegrass is great) or experimental jazz. I'm listening to a lot of NIN, Bush, Dropkick Murpheys, loud angry stuff, the louder the better.

I like Mozart as much as Beethoven (the chorale from the 9th will always be my favorite).  Oddly, it's hard to keep my attention on the beautiful, calming stuff.  Guess that says something about my INF side effect, agitation!  :)

On tx half the time it was older stuff - It's A Beautiful Day, Hot Tuna, Grateful Dead - and the other half of the time it was 'newer', thrashier stuff - Foo Fighters, RHCP, Offspring, Nirvana.
Nowadays it's anything from the heart.

I love all kinds of music from world, jazz, classical, rock, soul, R&B, hiphop, but cannot listen to country music. (sorry if I am offending anyone)

I grew up listening to everything and started studying music, too. The strange thing that it mostly annoyed me during tx. Just shows how unpredictable tx is.

I love almost all music. I like a lot of old hippie music and just about anything that is unique. Jazz is good and I like it but I do not listen to it a lot.

Some favorites are Spirit, Traffic, Al Kooper (BS&T and Super Session), Dylan, Allman Brothers, John Hyatt, Grateful Dead, Warren Zevon, Jeff Beck, Keb Mo.

Allman Brothers, Marshal Tucker and Niel Young are about as "country" as I get into, though I do like bluegrass.

I have always loved classical music. Barber's Adagio has soothed me. My childhood favorites were Dvorak, Rimskey-Korsakov, Beethoven, Mozart. I guess a live performance of Beethoven's 9th Symphony is close to the most amazing music ever.

During time on the TP list and TX, I listened to Arlo Guthrie and Allman Brothers for some strange reason ... ??

I grew up in the late fortys, 50s 60s to present and I still get a magic feeling everytime I hear Stevie Wonder, the old young Elvis, Fats just to name a few but I love how music continuously evolves-Rap?No. Country?    Sorry-everything rhymes bad.  Now Hank Williams Sr could make me Hear That Lonesome Whipperwill-Willie Nelson I like but my passion is Andrea Bocelli -the three tenors-The Irish tenors-Oueen and ol Pink Floyd-oh, a little Sting-No, I'm not Gay-(not that thers anything wrong with that)...I'm a fisherman and when I go out or come in I blast the Harbor like The choppers did in that movie Apocalypse Now-Love it!  Can't imagine life without music.  It would be like a life without smiles, hugs and tears

Beatles of course, Jethro Tull, Marvin gaye, Tammi Terrell, lots of Stevie Wonder, Allman Brothers, I can go on and on. It really doesnt stop.

I still listen to the music of he past...I also LOVE Cousteau with a passion.

add a C to Rap and that sums it up for me.  Anyone remember Roy Head?  I went to school with Steve Bilao Tyrell-B.J. Thomas is a hepper-met him thru Steve before his first hit Garner State Park in the sixtys when every other kid had a garage band hoping to make it big.  Those were the days-attic fans, crystal radios and Sillhouettes on the Shades!  Sweet long summer nights.  I think the first druggy album I ever heard was by the Bananas-something God*** the Pushin Man.  Ahh Sonny and Cher-man, those were the days...He's a Rebel, Johnny Angel, Brenda Lee, I'm Sorry, Leader of the pack and Tiny Tim!  Just kidding!  Remember Wolf Man Jack?  Gawd life was so simple and sweet!

I tried to post some youtube links to some good music and get a message they were deleted due to copyright claims.  I have mixed feeling about that.

In some sense, music should be free, but I understand that people have to make money and pay bills.

Copyright also protects ownership. Even if it's okay for you to listen to it free doesn't mean it's okay for Chrysler or Apple to take it for free and use it to promote their products . . .

Anyway . . .

Brahms. Anytime. I listened to my records of the symphanies when I was a teen. The Angel recordings, I think conducted by Klemperer. Beautiful soaring yearning and dramatic, full of angst oh how I loved them. Still do. Plus I later discovered his piano concerto played by Stephen Hough. Oh soo good.

I also listened to Prokofiev then. The music he wrote to go with the film Alexander Nevsky. Lovely heavy Russian stuff. Definitely dark. Loved the swelling choruses. May have to find a copy of that again now that I think of it. I also loved his Winter Dreams symphony, which was his first. I do have that somewhere on CD or in my iTunes. I think.

My mother would listen to the third act of Tosca over and over again  (no, I wasn't the only one with angst in my life at that time). It was the act where Maria realizes how Scarpia has played her and she jumps to her death. Many years later I bought a copy of Tosca but it was the *wrong* Tosca! After some searching I discovered that Leontyne Price was the Tosca of my adolescence and I found a CD of her performance and it was just perfect.

Yes, I love music. I'm not good at pop music, but I love all the rest from rock to jazz to koto.

When I came out of ICU after my transplant, I was flooded with memories from childhood and started singing up a storm. I sang little kids songs, camp songs, songs from bar mitzphas and weddings, Motown songs etc, etc.
  Even in ICU I heard music in my head all the time.

I find myself enjoying listening to the "oldies" of the 70's...  WOW, I never in a million years would have thought of myself saying that the 70's music was the oldies, but it is now considered that to the younger generation.  I am dating myself for sure on this one!  I can't help it, I just like the music from back then better than, the stuff that's come out in the past 10 years!  I love the Eagle's, Van Halen, Fleetwood Mac, Foreigner, Aerosmith, Boston, Kansas, ..... and even some of the pop from back then.  Interestingly enough, alot of these groups are STILL touring as 'old' rockers and getting a huge turnout at the venues, too.  As a Christian now, though, I also enjoy listening to contemporary Christian music as well- which can have just as much of a rock music style, but with Christian lyrics.  I like some classical when I'm in the right mood for it.  I hate easy listening/elevator music with a passion!  I'm also not too fond of bluegrass music.  There's very little hip/hop or rap that I like either, but I have on a rare occasion heard one of them that appealed to me when I was in spin class and they had it on in there.  Take care.  Susan400

Thank you for that utube.   My what a sweet baby face Bob Dylan had in 1966.  I don't know why, timing I guess, but I have never seen Bob Dylan play.  When I lived in Cleveland, about that time, my parents would let me go to La Cav - a beat coffee house/bar in the university area.  Little did they know how wild it really was there.  But I saw a lot of the folk greats then - Judy Collins, Dave Van Ronk, The Stone Ponies (with Linda Ronstadt), Tim Buckley.......  I love that era.  Thanks for the memories

I was staying at a hotel on St John, US Virgin Islands.  We went to the hotel restaurant for dinner and ended up sitting next to Judy Collins.  The hotel had small open bus to take guests back to their rooms and she sat down next to me.

We chatted about snorkelling and swimming all the way back to her room and I never mentioned that I knew who she was.   When we got back to NY, I looked her up on the net and found her website.  I sent her a message saying that I was the guy in with the gray beard that she met at Caneel Bay.  I never expected to hear back from her, but she sent me an email the next day saying that she remembered me and hoped to see my wife and I back at the hotel the same time next year.  I saved the email!

One of my favorite songs ever is The Rolling Stones, "Time Waits for No One". Must have been late 60's when that came out. I don't remember because I didn't start getting into music until about 1974. First album was The Rolling Stones "Through the Past Darkly". Beatles compilations came shortly after that. Grew up on Zeppelin, Hendrix and Rush. I have a huge collection of '80s music (I think I like it so much because it's about all I remember from that decade. It almost killed me). I enjoy country on occasion. Actually I like anything but that Gangsta Rap. I really like Linkin Park, and they are rap, but there's music in there. I classify  them  as 'white rap'. I'll check VH1 every now and then for the top 20 to try to keep up with the current stuff. Some of it is really good. Shinedown for instance, does 'Second Chance'. I saw them on Leno or Letterman. Turns out Second Chance is about one of the members drug addiction, you can pretty much tell from the lyrics. Good thread! Everyone can relate to music.

I think my first album from a friend was  Bobbie Gentry  "Ode to Billy Joe"....My brother was buying all of  Bob Dylan albums and was completely disgusted, but I liked it anyway..
My favorite album around that time was Déjà Vu. We also would go to a local hangout called Rainy Daze that featured Alice Cooper and Ted Nugent playing for a bunch of young teenage kids. (like 14 and 15)

I loved the visual effect of the Who Sell Out...anyone remember that cover?

When I started my tx about a year ago I would listen to almost only "stoner rock" like Queens Of the Stone Age, Tool, Kyuss and stuff like that, but during the treatment my taste has changed. I still love my "old music" but the last year I have needed more happy tunes. I startes to listen to Kate Nash, Eels and similar. When I was planning on going out I would take an hour listening to the happiest music I could find, to get in the mood of being social, so I would not sit quiet as a mouse when I was with friends.

I love Dylan. My wife and kids make fun of me when we travel and I listen to Dylan.

My first concert was "Herman's Hermits" (in '66 or 67?), no kidding! But here's the killer: their warmup act was then little-known The Who!  After Pete and company smashed up all their instruments and amps throwing pieces into the audience (I am pretty sure OSHA would not allow that now), the crowd went wild. Not many stayed to hear Peter Noone sing "Mrs Brown You've Got a Lovely Daughter"  :-)

I always think about that concert when I hear John Hyatt sing "Perfectly Good Guitar"!

I saw Pete Seger when he used to play in the streets of NY on the weekends.  He had the group that used to play on the Clearwater: the sloop that he sailed up and down the Hudson.  It might have been the Weavers, but who knows.

Constipated tripping hippies - what a concept :).

I do remember when LSD was legal and you could buy it over the counter in the village and then listen to Dylan at the Cafe Wha.  The vector was a sugar cube with a drop of acid on it, wrapped in tin foil.  You never knew what the dosage would be.  You could be just a little high or drifting among atoms while you discovered the basic nature of the universe.

Not to mention having sex with someone by just looking at them while you both smiled knowingly.  Ah those 60s - quite the time.  Birth control pills and no aids to worry about.

"Oh, help me in my weakness,"
I heard the drifter say,
As they carried him from the courtroom
And were taking him away.
"My trip hasn't been a pleasant one
And my time it isn't long,
And I still do not know
What it was that I've done wrong."

Well, the judge, he cast his robe aside,
A tear came to his eye,
"You fail to understand," he said,
"Why must you even try?"
Outside, the crowd was stirring,
You could hear it from the door.
Inside, the judge was stepping down,
While the jury cried for more.

"Oh, stop that cursed jury,"
Cried the attendant and the nurse,
"The trial was bad enough,
But this is ten times worse."
Just then a bolt of lightning
Struck the courthouse out of shape,
And while ev'rybody knelt to pray
The drifter did escape.

With a backpack full of yesterdays
On a freeway full of smoke and haze
Where the power lines and fault lines double cross
I left our yellow porch light on
No one will notice no one's home
And no one else will notice what was lost

I lost my home when the deal went bust
To the so-called security and trust
I planned my life the way they said I should
I sent my wife and kids ahead
I'm right behind you, so I said
I'll be there when I get there if that's good

Chorus

Now I'm leaving California for the dust bowl
They took it all, there's nowhere else to go
The pastures of plenty are burning by the sea
And I'm just a homeland refugee

There's a plastic sack by a barbwire fence
A burned out beer truck full of dents
A dried up stock pond by an old canal
Between the towns the desert sands
Filling up with empty cans
Container trains, casinos and canals

Chorus

My Grandpa used to tell about
The way the bankers drove them out
In the wind and the dust in the crash of ‘29
They crossed the desert headed west
They swore that it was for the best
They reassured the ones they left behind

There's some refugees from Mexico
Behind an abandoned Texaco
We nod and smile, it's clear we're all the same
For everything this world is worth
We're all just migrants on this earth
Returning to the dust from where we came

ok, cheesy pun intended: sounds like you struck a chord with people on this one. No, i have to admit i haven't read the hundred or so responses you have to this thread, but i'm responding to ur querry, not other peoples' answers. Music is my lifeblood. I'm llistening as I type to a playlist I titled :The Ones I Felt Like Listening To That One Day". seems 'that day' whenever it was, i had good taste.

Music transforms me. It absolutely CAN soothe the savage beast. I'm really into Motzart now...as well as pop, hip-hop, dance, trance, hard rock....it helps express, and sometimes, more importantly change my moods.

It's 7am here on the east coast, and mu hubby and lil guys will soon be up, so i have to take out the earphones and head off to make coffee, and who knows...maybe breakfast? But anyway, Yes. I need music to survive, and it's killing mt not to be able to sing loud and clear in this apartment bldg. we live in now...can't walk down the street because of murders, rapes, kidnappings......a murder happened 3 or 4 days ago about 1/2 mile from my home.....a guy walking on the side of the road....now i'm afraid to leave my white-walled prison and take a walk without my pepper/CS militarty gas spray and my switchblade (yes, I'm a woman).

Mellencamp was fantastic - great band, great music, great everything. Willie turned in a journeyman performance - voice still beautifuly rsesonant, played, all the hits, good band (including his sister). His vocals were a little clipped - almost 'spoken word', but I guess you can't have sustain and resonance after all these years.  Too bad about Dylan. Band sounded like they'd been together about a week, whoever was at the mixing board must've been high, and only the first two songs were barely intelligible. We tryed not to be among the first waves headed out, but I came to hear the words and the music, not incoherent hard rock.

Looks like you picked the wrong concert. Sorry. I seriously considered Dylan in Lubbock but we camped out and tried to catch the meteor shower instead (that was a bust - kind of like sleeping under a naked light bulb - with the full moon).  

The Steve Miller concert in Odessa was remarkable.  a full sound mix of oldies and blues and new music.  Tight band and sweet guitar.  They don't call him Stevie Guitar Miller for nothin' -- he must have played at least 10 different guitars.  His voice is still clear and sweet but he did have trouble with sustained high notes and it was giving out a bit after the first 2 hours of play.  He played 2 1/2 hours and I heard ECISD (the school district that sponsored the event) made 4x what they made last year when they had Huey Lewis.  Now I must buy some music by him.  By the way, he seemed like a really nice guy too.

Rain on the Scarecrow

Scarecrow on a wooden cross blackbird in the barn
Four hundred empty acres that used to be my farm
I grew up like my daddy did my grandpa cleared this land
When I was five I walked the fence while grandpa held my hand

Chorus:
Rain on the scarecrow blood on the plow
This land fed a nation this land made me proud
And son Im just sorry theres no legacy for you now
Rain on the scarecrow blood on the plow
Rain on the scarecrow blood on the plow

The crops we grew last summer werent enough to pay the loans
Couldnt buy the seed to plant this spring and the farmers bank foreclosed
Called my old friend schepman up to auction off the land
He said john its just my job and I hope you understand
Hey calling it your job ol hoss sure dont make it right
But if you want me to Ill say a prayer for your soul tonight
And grandmas on the front porch swing with a Bible in her hand
Sometimes I hear her singing take me to the promised land
When you take away a mans dignity he cant work his fields and cows

Therell be blood on the scarecrow blood on the plow
Blood on the scarecrow blood on the plow

Well theres ninety-seven crosses planted in the courthouse yard
Ninety-seven families who lost ninety-seven farms
I think about my grandpa and my neighbors and my name
And some nights I feel like dyin like that scarecrow in the rain

A great song by Joan Biaz
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2uL4SVdN9Pw&feature=related

I remember the first time I heard her.  I was in the book store across the street from CCNY buying some books for school.  Her song started and I instantly stopped what I was doing.  It was so beautiful, the clarity of her voice and the tempo so perfect that it was unforgettable.  I started asking people around me who the singer was until I finally found someone that knew of her.

I have been a fan ever since -- that must have been 1961.  She sang old English folk songs, country and the latest Bob Dylan songs all equally perfect.

I was listening to a jazz radio station while driving to my daughter's yesterday.  A tune from Peggy Lee came on - "I love the way you're breaking my heart" .. had tears running down my face.  Love Harry Connick Jr., that man's voice is magic.  Oscar Peterson, Canadian jazz man, is in a class of his own.  

Canadian guitarist Colin James - that man can swing AND rock n' roll.  His Big Band albums are fabulous stuff - that'll get you moving.  Check out Colin James and the Little Big Band on YouTube.  Some great stuff there.

Went to hear the Montreal Symphony Orchestra with a girlfriend last year, sat near the front.  Now I know why they call it a "symphony".  It was stunning visually and musically and left quite an impression on me.  I had never been to a symphony before that and I would love to go again.

There is a group out of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia called Men of the Deeps.  A group of coalminers who sing a capella, they wear mining caps on their heads with the head lanterns.  They sing some lovely haunting tunes, some in tribute to the miners who have been lost over the years in the "deeps" ..

And of course...Celtic music, particularly the kitchen party variety.  I cannot keep still to that.  I'll be sitting in my chair and my feet will start tapping, then both my feet are dancing away, my hands join in clapping to the beat and sometimes I lose all inhibitions and I'm up on the floor doing my own unschooled version of step dancing and footwork, remnants of my brief Highland dancing education.  When my kids were little, I used to dance them all over the house to that.  That fills my soul with joy and at those moments I am reminded of the richness there is in life.

And then... of course...for me... pipe band music and the bagpipes in general.  My god...there is not much else that moves my soul the way the massed bands at the closing of the Highland Games moves my soul.  A hundred or more bagpipers playing in unison, the sound of the large drums - "boom-boom, boom-boom" at precise moments, swirling their toms in the air before each strike - all the big drum players together - and the small drum corps starting into their own tat-tat and growing louder and louder and louder...and then the pipes are lifted up, the chanters to the mouths and suddenly all at once, the hundred or so pipes begin...all unified  leading into the inevitable Amazing Grace.  I have not yet ever been able to have a dry eye while they play that. And the visuals watching them march off the field one one massed band, kilts swinging, drummers in unison, pipers playing all together, fingers flying on their chanters... the air is just *filled* with the sound of it all and it fills my soul and overflows  ... that's a little piece of heaven right there.

Yeah...I know.  To each his own though, eh?

So much eclectic and interesting music out there ..  such riches.

So I'm driving to go skiing the night before the next day. Here I am in the Washington Cascade Mountain Range, miles from anything except Mt. Ranier, trying to avoid CNBC because I'm told it will raise my blood pressure, it's 9:00pm snowy like crazy, and lo and behold the "Bob Dylan Theme Time Radio Show" comes on "The Village" Sirius channel. Whoa! Wherever I am, I am in the right place all of a sudden.

His theme was sugar and all the songs about it. His DJ rap is as cool as his song lyrics that I grew up to. He ends the show explaining why someone should brush their teeth after eating sugar. He got down to the brass tacks about bacteria and waiting an hour before brushing. And he sounded convincing too. Here I was driving along, having Bob Dylan tell me to brush my teeth. . ..

To quote him after he played an old Cajun tune with kick *** accordian and unique guitar:

Nice to see the twists and turns this music thread have taken.  Like Trish and Isobella,  my dad was enmeshed in the Scottish and Irish music scene, but not as a player - more as a groupie if you can imagine this 75 year old gray headed man with a twinkle in his eye and his "Up Your Kilt" t-shirt and his 4'10" grayheaded girlfriend.  He hit all the Scottish games and Irish music festivals from Michigan to Ohio to N Carolina and even out to Texas once.  When he died, an Irish baggpipe player played at his graveside and his favorite Irish band gave him a wake in his favorite Irish pub and composed  a song about him to include all his really bad jokes.  We buried him in his Up Your Kilt t-shirt.  I love the music too although can't get much of it here is West Tecas.

I'm sorry Andiamo, but in re: Don McLean, I have to go with Steve Martin's, "I don't what it is about that music, Mama, but it depresses me."
Even a white haired Jimmy Page seems cheerful in comparison.

I do like it -- always did.

Thanks for the upbeat song.

I happen to love Van Gogh and this video was well done.

How are you my friend?

Loved the Van Gogh paintings. I can't hear Don McLean's voice without thinking of Driving my Chevy to the Levee and how that was on the radio 24/7 in 1971. I was usually driving my VW backcountry to go fishing while it was playing. So, I didn't have a Chevy. I loved my VW which my mechanic uncle called Hitler's Revenge every time I brought it into his gas station. - good memories.

I don't have Sirius but when I travel and rent cars they often do. I heard the Dylan Theme show and though it was some DJ impersonating him. Is it really Dylan?? How cool! I feel really stupid.

It is Dylan; I caught his show once on sat. radio.  He picks a theme for his show and I think I heard one themed on civil rights movement, playing music all somehow related.  He seemed so clever and 'normal'.

I saw Dylan in Greenwich village when he was just starting out.  I think it was the Cafe Wha.  It was just a small bar and no one knew Dylan at all then.  It was a couple of years before he became famous.

I love music, I always have, I use to aspire to be a music teacher.  I play classical flute and piano, and one of my favorite composers is beethoven.  When I was in high school, I only listened to classical music.  I was in every music organization possible.  I still play flute and piano, and am on a different career path, however I am still involved in music organizations and still practice my two main instruments.  I also listen to a broader range of music now...alt rock, musicals, classical (still), and many others.
   Music is a massive part of my life, it has unbelievable healing power, and I could absolutly lose myself in it.

Classical is my favorite also.  My father was a professional musician.

Here is a great one:

All of the music, that we listened to as teenagers, is still great stuff to this day. My husband and I love the 70s stuff too. Eric clapton, Journey, Heart, Fleetwood mac, The doors, Bob seeger, R.E.O. speedwagon, Juthro Tull, Pink floyd, just to name a few, lol. The problem we're having, is finding good recordings. The format that todays digital recordings are recorded in, just *****. We would love to go to the music store and buy some of these artists cds, butttt the way it sounds doesn't do any of the the music justice. Highly compressed sound tracks dumped onto a cd, capable of holding 50 songs just doesn't sound right to my ears. The new vinyl is the same way, even worse in most cases. So my husband and i decided to track down the old original music on vinyl and cds. So we have been having lots of fun frequenting our local goodwills and salvation army finding the originals. One thing we have discovered, is the new vinyl recorded in japan is much better, than the same, made in u.s.a. counterparts. So if you are lucky enough to own these old great recordings, in original format, never part with them because they are very hard to replace. Same goes for the old gear, that we mostly take for granted. If you guys are lucky enough to own the old vintage stuff like Pioneer, Sansui, Mcintosh, Marantz, Kenwood, in receivers or separates, hang onto them, that old gear, and those old records and cds are worth a lot more than we think. The old gear is just as fun to find and restore, as listening to the music we enjoy. My husband, is enjoying restoring the old speakers also, like the old Electrovoice Aristocrats, and Marquis, with the single duplex drivers. Altec 600 line of drivers they used in their stonehenge model of speakers, like the 604A, 604B, C,D,E and G series drivers are great to listen to, and produce a huge presence and soundstage that are second to none, including modern equipment that now cost 10 times more. All very cool stuff, and is great to listen to, find, and restore. We could not of found a better way to enjoy our time spent together, other than talking to you guys, lol  Enjoy the music.
