What are you listening to today?

It's about 4:14am.......I've been up doing laundry, listening to the Stones, and half ass listening to CNN in the background.

Nothing unusual for me.....lol......I'm a total nightowl.

One of my favorites from the Stones is Sympathy For The Devil.

This video was filmed in 2006 in Austin TX...my old stomping ground......

Actually, we had to start over, girl. Unfortunately we lost the old thread, but hey, now we can have the fun of doing it all over again..... :)

After I dissed David Bowie yesterday I can't get him out of my head. From "Let's Dance" to "Ziggy Stardust" to "China Girl" to "Starman" they all keep running through my head.

I think I'll play some Led Zep, they must be the antidote to Bowie fever. 8-)

To be perfectly true :lol: I had one song in my head for 3 weeks. It wound't stop unless I my mind was consciously doing something else. Amazing Grace has helped ion the past, so now it's going round.

I'll have to listen to some of these entries to get this obsession out of my head. :roll: Thanks for asking Mocha.

I can't listen to music. Its a trigger for me. But 7 months ago I loved music. Country rock, classical you name it. But I loved heavy metal the most.

Well, the disturbing song that was in my head has been replaced by Arlo Guthrie's City of New Orleans. That may have something to do with seeing him in a PBS concert the other day. His voice hasn't changed - to my mind - even if his hair is now grey!

I can live with that repeating in my head, much more sophistication than the last ditty. And I know more than one stanza and can even harmonize to it if I like.

Sad isn't it. I'm not totally out of touch with uhm 21st century music. I have to credit this site for a lot of that. My favorite station of popular alternative and indie sold out to a Christian music station. Sigh.

Ebipolar,

Did you have some trauma/event associated with that music trigger? Maybe it brings back memory or emotions? Or do you have an explanation, even if it's just hypothesis?

It's currently about 2:30am in my timezone, and I'm watching a music video show on telly called Rage. A song I fell in love with during my first trip to the states just came on - Ain't No Rest For The Wicked by Cage The Elephant. In deference to my attraction to it I now regularly defile it on my acoustic guitar, much to the puzzled annoyance of my neighbors. :twisted:

Today, Billy Bragg's cd "Workers Play Time".

I was watching a music video show (yes, Pancake, Rage) and his song "She's Got A New Spell" came on.

Listening to that brought back some old memories, so I turned off the telly and listened to the whole cd. Brilliant stuff, and "Great Leap Forward" is possibly the best song to ever end an album.

Dooood. Seen him perform at a trades hall event, he was at the We Are Union launch - the campaign that had Responsible Public Servants out doorknocking in marginal seats and had a hand in swinging the last Vic elections. There's an entertaining, if somewhat disengaged and inaccurate, liberal party report on the matter.

Shocking unionist I am... They do put on a fabulous party though.

Who doesn't love Rage? What else is there to do at dark o'clock?

You saw Billy Bragg live, Pancake..?

Big respect won right there.

And yeah, always suspected that you were a fluoro-jacket, yellow hard-hat wearing Bolshevik.

Your sig-line screams it

:P :P

... "It's complicated".
I'll send a DM, if I can get the internets to cooperate.

Look, I'd copy-paste your hard hat comment, but a) it's white (with stickers on!) and b) my current sig matches my avatar...

Enough derail though, no music here, we're watching Adventure Time.

I don't music much, depends on mood but generally noise tends to agitate. I like the quiet, and if I'm home alone everything is switched off.
